The Bali Bungalow invites you to experience the hidden gem of Old Town Seal Beach.

Our authentic beach bungalow is just steps to the sand and three short blocks to Main Street and the second-longest wooden pier in Southern California.

Even the most discerning traveler will delight in the simple pleasures and convenience that await you. You'll also find plenty to love in our private gardens. Your own piece of paradise!

This guest house is serene, light and airy with special attention to detail and style. Your private entrance is located behind a colorful cottage garden and historic craftsman bungalow.

A reserved parking space and a parking pass for street parking are provided.

Once inside, the warm wood floors and sisal area rugs complement the decor's cool ocean colors. Relax in the cozy bedroom with hand carved headboard, queen bed with luxury linens, ceiling fan, full length mirror, and plenty of storage.

Feel the breeze drift through the living area while enjoying free streaming netflix or pandora on the 42' flat screen HDTV .

The large dining table seats four and the separate kitchen is fully equipped with stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender and cooking utensils.

Beach towels, chairs, and cooler are provided for a trip to the beach just across the street.

Easy to get to, Seal Beach is just 18 miles from John Wayne airport, 7 miles from Long Beach airport, and 22 miles south of Los Angeles.

Unwind from your journey with a complimentary bottle of wine in the garden or a special discounted spa treatment.

Stroll this picturesque village of vintage cottages and unique boutiques. Stop for coffee and a pastry or breakfast at one of the many cool and quaint cafes.

Choose a delicious gourmet sandwich from Angelo's Italian Deli or the Pierside Press for a picnic on the sand. A variety of pubs, wine bars and bistros offer endless dining opportunities.

Order your groceries online for delivery to your door from nearby Pavilion's or shop at Trader Joe's, Gelson's or Whole Foods, all just a mile away.

The scenic drive south on Pacific Coast Highway will lead you to 'Surf City' Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Balboa Island, and the artist community of Laguna Beach.

Experience California's natural beauty, untouched by time, at Crystal Cove State Park where you can hike the trails, observe wild life, explore the tidal pools, picnic or dine at the vintage Beachcomber restaurant right on the sand.

Enjoy day trips to Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios or Six Flags Magic Mountain.

Ferry to Catalina Island. Rent an easy-to-navigate duffy electric boat and self-cruise or take a gondola ride through the canals of Naples at sunset. The water taxi at the nearby marina will transport you to the Queen Mary and the Aquarium of the Pacific.

So, soak up the sun, feel the rhythm of the ocean, enjoy shopping and dining on eclectic Main Street or visit the many nearby attractions.

Come experience all our idyllic beach town has to offer. The friendly people and laid back atmosphere will put you in the vacation mode and the dramatic sunsets are something to behold.

About beverly

Renting this guest house has been a fantastic experience largely because of all the wonderful people we've hosted - many of them family & friends of locals who have made our bungalow their home away from home.

I purchased this property from the family of the original owners after renting my house for over 10 years. My home is almost 100 years old and was moved here from Santa Ana by a founder of Sunkist. The back house was added around 1950.

My love of nature, art, travel and beach life provided the inspiration for the furnishings and decor.

Having lived here for 32 years, I like to think of Main Street as Disneyland for adults - so much to enjoy!

beverly purchased this bungalow in 1995

Why beverly chose Old Towne

It was love at first sight! The smells of salt air and the old wooden pier. Main Street, the soul of our town. The lure of an original Craftsman home with a history that needed someone to care for it. The hauntingly beautiful sound of the fog horns, the majestic palm trees, and the spectacular sunsets.

What makes this bungalow unique

Experience a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere with a variety of exceptional restaurants, pubs, shops and spas within a 5 minute walk. Ideally located with easy access to fun activities. A tranquil and private retreat. A sun drenched exposure with the cool ocean breezes. The sound of bubbling water from the outdoor fountain and the scent of jasmine and angels's trumpet as you drift off to sleep.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bev, I really enjoyed my stay here at Bali. What a wonderful seaside town. It was great to be so close to the beach. Your bungalow was private and cozy, but just a 3 minute walk to to shopping, dining, and the pier. Would love to come back sometime.

Just had to come back to The Bali Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Bali Bungalow for four months in 2016 while our home was being remodeled. It wasn't long enough! Not only did we have a great place to stay but made new friends and fell in love with Seal Beach in the meantime.

Beverly does an exceptional job outfitting the Bungalow with everything needed for a comfortable stay.

Loved spending time in the garden, sitting in the afternoons reading, visiting, drinking wine.

Main Street is only three blocks away. Shopping, dining,

walking. We had such a good time that my husband took me back for another week for my birthday.

I'd be more than happy to make it a tradition.

Thank You Beverly

Good stay overall

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in the Bali Bungalow for two months while I was in California for work. The Bungalow is very clean and cozy. Nicely decorated and in a good safe location. You're a few quick steps from the beach. The downtown area is a five minute walk. Overall it was a pleasant experience staying at the Bungalow.

Secret Paradise

  • 5 of 5

After reading the reviews, we had high expectations for the Bali Bungalow and Seal Beach, but it was much better than we could have imagined. The bungalow is gorgeous; original hardwood floors, white walls, dark wood furniture and turquoise decor. It's charming and so relaxing. Bev has stocked it with everything you would ever need but the most important part is hard to define; the garden fragrances from all the flowers combined with the salt air, the ever changing light and the slight sea breeze in the afternoons, makes the life so peaceful and intoxicating. We have been here for six weeks and it has been an extraordinary getaway. Bev is not only a gifted landscape artist, but she is now a friend as well as being the ultimate guide and host. Seal Beach's downtown is an eclectic mix of old and new restaurants that are mostly family-owned and thankfully it lacks the gentrified franchises of neighboring beach towns. There is a great community feel and everyday you begin to see patterns of people walking their dogs, enjoying the great weather and life here. Everything you need is within walking distance. The entire experience is heavenly! Thank you, Bev. We will never forget you and this beautiful place.

Perfect cozy spot

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the Bali bungalow was so ideal and relaxing - just a quick walk to Main Street for shops and restaurants or to the beach, with all the accommodations inside that you might need during your stay. Also worth noting that the owners property is landscaped beautifully, gorgeous flowers outside my window with birds chirping was the best way to wake up!

Fifth Stay

  • 5 of 5

What an excellent way to escape the cold winters of the northeast. This, my fifth stay at Bali Bungalow, was as enjoyable as my first. The accommodations are bright, clean and catering to comfort and serenity. WiFi, Pandora, Netflix and cable are all available for indoor entertainment. Outside, there is beautiful Seal Beach. This is an excellent walking town. The ocean, river, bay, Farmer's Market, green belt, and Main Street are minutes away. I can't imagine coming here and not staying at Bali Bungalow. Thank you Bev, for your high standard of hospitality.
