Even Better than Expected!

  • 5 of 5

No crowded beaches here, just a quiet, really clean place to open the door/windows and listen to the ocean waves. Lovely interior, especially the kitchen. Bathrooms are retro/dated but who cares when you get a view like this? City lights of Long Beach and cruise ships docking, Queen Mary and Ocean right outside your window & balcony. There was some street noise from the master bedroom but not bad. Walking distance to the Convention Center for events. Internet was sloooow but we figured out that if only one of us was on a laptop at a time, it worked fine. Also worked on cell phones well. Mariel was wonderfully helpful. We loved this place and are already looking forward to returning.

Warm, cozy, comfortable secure place on the beach with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

Great beach access and walking path, location is great, short Uber rider or nice walk to the local spots. Try the restaurant "Padre", it was great. Morning coffee on the balcony was wonderful as were the sunsets. Everything in the unit was clean, and worked great. The unit and the building are clean and secure. ,,, parking with the unit was a plus,,, parking spot is a little tight, but no problem unless you have a large vehicle. Mark gave us a great tour of the property and had all the info we would need for our stay. We will be back!

Wonderful location, beautiful beachfront and very nice accommodations for four.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Penthouse 5 nights for a family get away and birthday celebration. The condo was very spacious and had a wonderful view of the beach. We were very pleased with the accommodations and special extras (beach and BBQ accessories). Parking was tight but very much appreciated, as local parking in the area is limited.

Perfect Long Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family was in Long Beach for a dance convention. My older daughter and I would go to the dance convention each day while my husband and younger daughter would enjoy checking out Long Beach or playing on the beach in front of the condo.

The condo was immaculate! It was SO clean, fresh and cool when we arrived! Air conditioning throughout was a major bonus although it was never oppressively hot out. The room darkening shades in the bedrooms made it easy for us to sleep well every night (which says a lot for a family coming from the mountains with NO neighbors, lots of dark and quiet). Street noise was not bothersome or noticeable to this mountain gal or my kids! The condo was well stocked with kitchen supplies (even tupperware and ziplocs!), beach towels, beach toys, beach chairs, beach umbrella, bath towels and hairdryers!! The view was unbeatable and we enjoyed having morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the beach. I saw other comments that the bathrooms need updating, but I guess I'm old school~I find the features in the baths charming and a statement to the character of when the building was built. Plus, you can tell the owners are working their way through updates throughout the unit and I wouldn't be surprised if bathroom remodels were coming sometime in the future. I, for one, was just fine with the bathrooms as they were very clean, had lots of towels and washcloths, and hairdryers.

Mark and Lorrie were a joy to work with. Mark walked us through everything we needed to know at check in and really made sure we "got it" in concerns to parking, key codes, and helping maintain the building and our unit. The added bonus of laundry detergent and quarters for your first load was huge since we had just come from Disneyland and had lots of laundry to do. Mark also gave us some great restaurant and activity recommendations. Dinner at King's Fish House was a highlight. I went on several walks and always felt safe on the beach bath and around town. Lorrie was helpful and responsive to any questions or requests we had and I loved how quickly she always got back to me.

With a great location on the beach, awesome amenities throughout, close to the convention center in a vivacious town at such a great price we are looking forward to coming back!!
