About Tom Stearns

A native of Southern Calfornia, I like to spend as much time as possible in Long Beach. My condo is a very special little corner of Long Beach.

I can help with planning visits to nearby areas of interest including San Diego, Santa Barbara, Palm Springs and Las Vegas.

I grew up in the Long Beach area and I am familiar with all of Los Angeles.

Some of my favorite places in Long Beach include:

-walking my dog in Rainbow Harbor

-exploring Belmont Shore

-nighttime dinner or drinks on Pine Street

-take in a movie at the newly renovated Pike Theaters

In the middle of it all, however, secluded and relaxing, it offers the best of...everything!

Tom Stearns purchased this condo in 2009

Car: not necessary

A favorite sea-worthy attraction is the city's Aqua Bus, a 40-foot water taxi that serves the city's main attractions, such as the Queen Mary and Aquarium of the Pacific. The city also sponsors AquaLink, a high-speed 60 foot catamaran that offers service to nearby Alamitos Bay,

which has marinas, restaurants and water sports.

There are several options for getting on the water at a cost, like Whale Watching, Dinner Cruises, Sport Fishing, Private Cruises, Harbor Cruises, a Murder Mystery Cruise

and Boat Rentals.

Some bars & restaurants within walking distance from the condo..(but not limited to!) include:


California Pizza Kitchen,

Outback Steakhouse,

Tokyo Wako,

PF Changs,

Yard House,

Parker's Lighthouse,


Famous Dave's,



The Dueling Pianos,

Mosher's Deli,

George's Greek Cafe,

Savilla Spanish Cusine,


and Buno's Italian Restaurant.

Grocery shopping is located in the recently remodeled Von's Supermarket on Atlantic Blvd also downtown 4 blocks away just off Ocean Blvd.

The famous Queen Mary is a hearty walk although I suggest driving. Two other places of interest easiest by car are both the Maya Hotel and the Reef Restaurant.

The new 'Outlets at the Pike' are leasing 330,000 sq feet of retail space. Currently, the Restoration Hardware outlet, H & M, Nike, Gap, Columbia, Forever 21, a Starbucks and a variety of others coming soon.

Successful Long Beach shopping areas include the Promenade (located within walking from the condo), Belmont Shore, Retro Row, and the Arts District (also walkable from the condo).

The Long Beach Grand Prix consumes Downtown LB for a long weekend in April.

Other downtown LB activities include: the Zombie Walk, Pride and the world series of Volleyball each year.

This Long Beach Vacation Rental is perfect for vacation or business, blending perfect design, location and affordability.
