About Lupe Rodriguez

Although our business keeps us busy 24-7 we always make time to enjoy our beach place! Our family is quite BIG.. 7 kids, 9 grand kids, and if that wasn't enough we also have 2 Jack Russel's who think they are as ferocious as 2 Rottweilers!

I love to cook.. he loves to eat ! I love to play in the sand he prefers to keep his shoes and socks on at all times ! I love R&B, he prefers the opera.. as different as we are the one thing we BOTH LOVE is spending time at our beach place !

Lupe Rodriguez purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Lupe Rodriguez chose Long Beach

For years we would come to this part of town to walk on the boardwalk, admire the beautiful homes, enjoy the beach and it's beautiful sunsets. We always dreamed of living here full time or part time. It wasn't until April of 2010 that our dream of owning a little piece of land on this peninsula came true! We love it.. the place, the people the scenery ! You will love it too.

What makes this apartment unique

Although our place is small it's very comfortable and very well equiped for you to enjoy and relax.

Had a wonderful stay here. Some

Construction going on next door but needed to get up early to enjoy the day anyway. Overall, Mi Casa Es Tu Casa was wonderful. All the amenities are there at your fingertips. And it's in the perfect location. Thank you for sharing your little slice of beach life with VRBO.

Cozy place in great location

  • 5 of 5

The location couldn't be better. We were literally steps from the beach. The place is comfy and cozy. We loved our stay. We found it great for two adults and a child. One thing to consider if going with small children: the kitchen table is bar-height, with stools (a bit tricky for very little children if eating at the table is important to you). I think you would be hard-pressed to get more than two people at the table. But there is lots of room in the living room, and we had everything we needed.

Best Place EVER!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a peace of heaven! We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights and could not have picked a better location to lay our heads at night! The home is extremely well kept and has all the major necessities neeeded where in the home. The wifi was magnificent, I was able to work, complete homework and watch Netflix. Every sleeping area was extremely comfortable and the area was spacious. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone!!

Location but not much more...

  • 2 of 5

The location is the key here! Walk to the beach or walk to the harbor. Chairs, a kayak, and some children's play things were available for our use. As for the property, bring your own coffee and coffee maker. Also, a corkscrew, plastic wrap, etc. Kitchen has few gadgets and incidentals. We had very little dish or other soap and toilet paper (2 rolls). No AC but lots of fans. Very hard to sleep at night with noise outside. Even the smell of a skunk worked its way into the bedroom in the middle of the night unless that was my imagination. Furniture is very well worn. Bed was not comfortable. Floors were not clean--had to keep shoes on. Construction is still going on 2 doors down and was very loud both days we were there. No restaurants are within walking distance. There is a "liquor store" with some groceries 4 blocks away. This is a great location for a beach vacation but in my opinion overpriced for the property. Lupe was very nice.

Owner's Response: Cynthia its funny that I had not seen your review until now. A returning guest mentioned it and we both laughed because yours was the first bad review in all the years I have been involved in VRBO. You are entitled to your honest opinion.. and I am OK with that because it only makes me make things better for future guests. I do have a new coffee maker in the unit as well as coffee in the refrigerator to keep it fresh for my guests. As for toilet paper I usually put 1 roll per day per rental.. you stayed 2 days = 2 rolls. I think that's pretty normal. I won't take anymore space or time 29 good reviews far outweigh your 2 stars.

So great we could have stayed forever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights in this rental and LOVED it. The bay side beach was less than a block away and the ocean side not much farther. We have a toddler and it was wonderful to just walk to the beach quickly and without needing our car! Street parking was crowded but we always found a spot. Plenty of wonderful dining options within a 10 minute drive.

The house was cozy yet had space for everything we needed. A large TV with cable for those toddler cartoons. We hope to return someday and would recommend this home to anyone!

This is an upstairs apartment so that might be a concern for anyone with a disability or trouble climbing stairs. I don't remember seeing that info until arrival (although I could have missed it), so I wanted to share that.

The beach!

  • 5 of 5

Great place, literally steps from the beach! Perfect for 1-2, still fits 3-4.

Pros: Great beach location away from crowded beach areas, responsive host, available TV options, Brita pitcher, no add-on fees

Cons: Parking, internet reach, noise insulation, no a/c, no dishwasher or icemaker, upstairs unit, bathroom light fixture, toilet paper,

Don't just count the pro vs con bullets. Pros far outweigh the cons. Details below.

The ocean is about 7 lots away across a quiet street, bay is just four lots away. This really is "walking distance", unlike some other places that claim that when they're within a mile of the beach.

Parking is scarce, but we found an on-street space right in front of the unit about half the time. The other half we parked on the "main" street right around the corner. Generally looked for parking late at night, after everyone home from work. This was on weekdays though, weekend probably tougher.

Wife & I slept in the bdrm, adult kids slept on the couch & sleeper mattress. Compact for 4, but worked fine for us. White noise machine in bdrm - I liked but wife didn't. Kind of funny playing ocean noises just steps from the ocean. But why a noise machine?

Windows are single pane - don't do a lot to insulate from noise. This normally doesn't seem to be a problem because it's very quiet in the neighborhood. HOWEVER, there was a remodeling project going on in the alley behind. Hours were approx 0630-1500. They're weren't excessively loud, but normal voices in the alley will carry into the apt. Hopefully, they'll be done by the time you stay here! No a/c, but open windows gave us all the co

The internet was pretty fast, about 15-30 Mbps down and 5-10 up. I think it's cable. It slowed down in the evening, but still pretty fast. The wifi din't reach into the bdrm very well, but it was fine in the dining nook and the living room.

The kitchen was well-stocked with everything you need including a Brita pitcher in the refrig, but no dishwasher and icemaker (but there are ice cube trays in the freezer).

Couple of niggles in bathroom, only 1 roll of toilet paper, light fixture lots of rust.

Lupe was very available but also respected our privacy. We were a little nervous about no online payment option, but everything worked out - we just gave her a check when we got there. No add-on fees for this/that like other places.

I'd stay again! If you want the beach, here it is!
