Cal Heights Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 bedroom, 3/4 bathroom, Sleeps 3

Our circa 1920 Red Casita has been fully re-modeled for your home-away-from-home comfort. Nestled in the back yard of one of California Heights’ oldest Craftsman houses, the Red Casita is close to freeways and transportation, but part of a beautiful neighborhood with tree-lined streets and historic homes. California Heights was awarded the First and Grand Prizes of Neighborhoods USA's (NUSA) 2012 National Conference, and was featured in Sunset Magazine’s “10 Most Desirable Neighborhoods” write-up in 2004. It is conveniently located between Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Head to the beach for a day in the sun, to Naples Island for a gondola ride, to one of several theme parks, or simply out your front door to enjoy lounging on one of two brick patios. The possibilities are endless.

The Red Casita is a studio apartment which features a queen size bed, twin sleeper sofa, 40” flat screen TV with Verizon Fios, DVD player, WiFi, Ethernet, and access to a brick patio with BBQ. Efficiency kitchen features microwave/convention oven, toaster, electric skillet, coffee maker, refrigerator, and all cooking/dining necessities. Please note: the Red Casita does not offer air conditioning. We do, however, have a swamp cooler.

Clean and comfortable!

If you are looking for a great place to stay in the Long Beach area this is it. Quiet neighbourhood, great parking, clean, comfortable, close proximity to beach area, freeways and shopping. Outside sitting area was an added bonus! Thanks for everything Esther!

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

I used this property for several weeks as I completed a work commitment with my employer. It is well kept and quite. The owners and manager were easy to work with and answered any questions i had quickly. The property is close to many restaurants and shopping options as well as a short drive to the beach. I would stay there again without hesitation.

Quiet neighborhood and a nice yard with real green grass!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Red Casita! We stayed here with our 7 year old. It was very clean, quiet, and felt like home.. especially with the nice garden and thick green grass (we are from MN and were starting to miss walking barefoot on soft green grass). It was the perfect location, just a short drive to Legoland, Santa Monica, and LA. Wonderful quiet place to come back to and relax after long days enjoying the warm California sun. This was our first Homeaway stay. It was a great experience. We would definitely stay here again.

Comfort, Location, Hospitality, and Privacy

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I arrived at the time of check in and the Red Casita was ready for us. It was very clean and inviting! On the first day, the owners Ford and Robbyn introduced themselves to us and made us feel extremely welcomed in a part of their home. Yet at the same time, they gave us our privacy the entire time we were there. The detached studio apartment was a prefect size that accommodated a lot of our needs. The location was phenomenal in a safe/charming area. Close enough to major destinations (Disney), but far enough from all the hustle and bustle. We would definitely recommend the Red Casita to couples.....the small courtyard was awesome as we drank our coffee out there in the mornings and enjoyed the bottle of wine Ford and Robbyn left us :) Esther was also great to work with from the get go.....she answered every question we had quickly. We will be back the next time we are in LA!

Quaint Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My granddaughter and I stayed at the Red Casita last week. It was clean and comfortable. Esther, the property manager quickly texted or emailed me whenever I had questions before and during my visit. Ford, the property owner welcomed us when we arrived on our first night. I think the cottage is a nice place to stay; however, I am an insomniac. There were some birds outside chirping after midnight and I had only a few hours of sleep each night. Other than that, I enjoyed my stay! I would recommend this rental to anyone on a budget!
