Paradise found! This is a bright and cozy, recently remodeled upstairs apartment with all new furnishings. There is no ocean view from inside the apartment. It is located just across the street from the beach and pier and a 1 block stroll to Main Street. There is an adventurous sandy beach playground just across the street. Seal Beach has been called the 'Mayberry by the Sea' because of the friendly and charming atmosphere that Old Town provides. Just park your car (parking permit provided) and walk or bike anywhere you need as shopping and restaurants are just moments away. Seal Beach is a safe, family-friendly atmosphere.

The kitchen is fully furnished with microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven with a table to seat four.

About Kim Gasper

The Gasper family includes David, Kim and Tori. We live on-site and are thrilled to share our lovely Seal Beach location with you, your family and friends! We have lived in Seal Beach since 1995. David was a volunteer fireman in Seal Beach for many years. We absolutely love our quaint little town and know that you too will share in this love once you visit. We have found that our life in Seal Beach keeps us outdoors...walking, riding, or just laying in the sun watching Tori enjoy the beach. People ask us where we are going on vacation and we tell them that we live in the best vacation destination to be found...why would we leave? Hope to see you very soon.

Kim Gasper purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Kim Gasper chose Seal Beach

When you arrive'll see why! We are directly across from the beach, pier, playground and a block from Main Street. Our location is second to none!

What makes this apartment unique

We are directly across the street from the park, the ocean/beach, & pier. We are only 1 block off Main Street where all the Old Town shopping and dining is located. We are the location of choice!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing location right across the street from the park, pier, beach and playground. Main Street with all its dining and shopping is a block away. Our hosts, David & Kim, provided everything a family would need for a vacation dream--beautiful furnishings, fully stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, beach chairs, umbrella, ice chests, sand toys, beach cruisers, surf board, boogie boards--you name it, they have provided it. Thanks so much!

We loved our stay here.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. Kim was so very helpful and sweet. All we would have had to bring was our clothes and toothbrush and toothpaste. She had all the other products in the bathroom that we needed. This was a nice thing for her to do. The condo was like being at home. It was so comfortable. So close to the beach. The main street in Seal Beach is just a block over and so nice to walk around and great restaurants. (Walts wharf was our favorite.)

The only down side is the parking but that is to be expected being that close to the beach.

Thank you, Kim.

A Month in Wonderful Seal Beach, CA.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful month's stay @ this marvelously-appointed condo in Seal Beach. Excellent mattress, extraordinarily well stocked linens and larder and across from the Pacific & the Pier. The accessibility to all of Main Street, Seal, the Library, the park & beaches makes this a venerable walker,s paradise.No car necessary. Seal Beach in "winter" certainly beats Pittsburgh in winter. Try it sometime; this home is 4 stars!

The kitchen was a good size as well as the living/dining room, bathroom and bedroom. The extra TV was perfect. Would recommend this apartment to anyone.

Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay in the perfect Seal Beach location. The beach is a few steps away and Main Street is right around the corner. No need to drive to either one. Lots of good restaurants, and the waves to the right of the pier were great for body surfing and boarding. Inside the apartment, everything we needed was there. We definitely took advantage of the surfboard, boogie boards, beach chairs, etc. We will stay here again on our next trip to Seal Beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We so enjoyed welcoming your family into our vacation rental and watching you go off to the beach for swimming, surfing and fun! Glad you enjoyed our long list of amenities provided--that's why they are there! Our location is the best in town being right by the beach, pier, playground and only a short walk from Main Street shopping and dining. Hope you will bring your family back again!

The location was fantastic and the unit itself was well kept and we'll laid out. Hard to think of how it could be better. it was excellent to have amenities such as the boogie boards and especially the surfboard and even wetsuits! This place is superb.
