Property description

If you're looking for a central location to stay while you explore all that Los Angeles and Orange County have to offer we're confident that our condo will suit your needs perfectly. Enjoy the amenities of an upscale suite for less than the cost of a hotel room!

Park in our assigned space in the secure underground garage, soak in the community jacuzzi tub, make yourself a home cooked meal in our full kitchen, take care of your laundry with our energy efficient washer and dryer, snuggle up by the fireplace and play one of our board games or borrow a book in the cozy living room, get a good low-impact workout on our elliptical machine and watch unlimited Netflix movies and shows on our 42-in flat screen HDTV in the bedroom. There's even a pet house on the balcony for your furry friend to enjoy!

Located in the Alamitos Beach area, our lovely little condo is walking distance to the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA), Retro Row (on 4th St), and less than a mile away from the beach. Shopping, restaurants, and nightlife are less than 3 miles away when you go to Shoreline Village, The Pike, downtown Long Beach and Belmont Shore. Getting around town without a car is easy with Long Beach's Passport bus and you can even connect to the greater Los Angeles area by hopping on the Blue Line (Metro Rail).

Only accepting long-term (30-nights min) guests at this time (no exceptions). Please read Rate Details section below for more info. We look forward to your visit! =)

Car: Recommended

Long Beach is huge on community events. They've got regular Art Walks, Farmers' Markets, Craft Fairs and seasonal activities like outdoor concerts and movies in the summer. If you're visiting during the holidays, be sure to check out the lights in Naples, where homeowners go all-out to decorate their beach homes and boats. If you're looking for a casual place to hang out and have a drink, listen to live music or shoot some pool, there are a plethora of options in Long Beach. In our neighborhood alone, you could easily walk to 5 or 6 bars. The crowd varies from bar to bar and what time you go, but in our area the scene is pretty laid-back and the drinks are strong and cheap. If you prefer a more trendy experience, you'll want to visit Belmont Shore or downtown LB. There you'll find really nice restaurants and a few nightclubs that serve a wide variety of specialty drinks and exotic food.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Hi, I'm Taylor! My wife and I were born and raised in southern California. After years of renting apartments all over Los Angeles, we finally took the plunge into home ownership by purchasing our condo in Long Beach. We're both pretty handy DIY-ers so we rolled up our sleeves and remodeled the whole place ourselves (well, we did get help from a handyman!). Here's what we did: re-textured all the walls, tiled the kitchen and bathroom, bought a new deep soaking bathtub and energy efficient toilet, installed new sinks and counter-tops, replaced all major appliances, replaced the old carpet by refinishing the existing industrial concrete sub-floor, and of course we painted everything. We even had a little energy left over to build the 2 custom storage ottomans that are there to this day! I used to serve in the military and when I got reassigned to a duty station out of town we had to move. We just couldn't bring ourselves to let go of our lovely little first home so we decided to convert it into a rental instead. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Franklin, Long Beach, CA, USA:
Being a young couple, we were instantly drawn to LB's nightlife, diversity, urban culture, and of course the proximity to the ocean. I love that you don't have to leave the city to have a great time; everything you need is right here, but if you do need to venture out you're only a 30-60 minute drive to all the worthwhile places to go in LA and OC.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
When it comes to house-hunting we shopped around for a long time before we found the one that was "just right". Our biggest challenge was finding a unit that came with parking, let alone all the other must-have features on my list: double sinks, laundry in-unit, fireplace, balcony, walk-in closet, and gated community. This condo has it all, and with its walking-distance proximity to the market, pubs, restaurants, and ocean, we just had to have it.
