Overview

About the property

2 Story historical landmark home

Our home is a 4 bedroom, 2 1/3 bath house (3000 square feet) (with all 4 bedrooms upstairs) across the street from the beach. It's has cherrywood beams downstairs and built-in cabinets with glass doors in the dining room. The dining room has a beautiful cherrywood table with seating for 6. The living room has a fireplace along with ample sitting for relaxing and watching TV. The kitchen is fitted with dishes, silverware, pots, pans, electric skillets, slow cooker and everything else a person could want to cook a fabulous meal. We have a toilet next to the kitchen. Upstairs you will find one bedroom has twin beds. Another room has a double bed with a loft (that will sleep one comfortably). The next room has a queen bed. There is a bathroom that services all three bedrooms. The sunroom is located next to the master bedroom in the front of the house. It is a sunny and relaxing room, and I must say it is my favorite room in the house. Our master bedroom is next door to the sunroom. It has a queen bed in it with a loveseat for relaxing. This room has an en-suite with a jacuzzi tub built for two. The sunroom and master suite have french doors leading out to a balcony. We also have a Queen size air mattress that will sleep 2 adults. We have parking for one car inside our gated (remote control)driveway and also parking for one car in our driveway. You will find that having parking is a real asset in Long Beach.

About Doris Bartlett

My husband and I are retired. My husband was a vice president of human resources for major corporations. He grew up in Tucson, Arizona and graduated from the University of Arizona. My background was in payroll and also human resources. We have 6 children and 14 grandchildren. (a lot). We love this home and have had many wonderful holidays and dinners with family and friends. We entertained regularly and have had anywhere from 10 to 100 people at the house at one time. We also have a beautiful home in the Palm Springs area (the desert of southern california).

Doris Bartlett purchased this house in 1996

Why Doris Bartlett chose Alamitos Beach

I grew up in the Long Beach area and loved it. It is very rare to find a 100 year old, 2 story home with an attic and a full cellar (part of which we have made into a wine cellar) in Southern California. The home has history that dates back to World War II. It is a historical landmark in Long Beach. We have a marble fireplace in the living room for those cooler winter nights.

What makes this house unique

This charming home sleeps 8 - 10 people. There is a fenced and gated patio that runs the full length of the front of the house. We normally have our coffee out there and drinks in the afternoon. There are 2 tables on the patio with seating for 8. The home is centrally located to many attractions. You can be in Hollywood within the hour, Santa Monica in 45 minutes, Malibu within an hour. Santa Barbara is a 2 hour drive, but well worth it. Then heading south, you can reach Orange County (Irvine) within 45 minutes or Laguna Beach within 45 minutes. San Diego is an hour and a half away. For those surfers of the world, you can be surfing within 15 minutes in Huntington Beach or further down the coast in San Clemente within 45 minutes.

Notes:
Only 2 mission revival homes made it through the 1920's Long beach earthquake and ours is one of them. It is a historical landmark. We have a picture on the fireplace mantel showing the house back in the early days. Just a little tidbit: the man who built the house was called James Beer. Because of that my husband always refers to our house as the 1st beer house in Long Beach.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained and the owners are very attentive. We came for my brother's wedding and were so happy to have a place conveniently located within blocks of his home and the wedding venue. It was directly across the street from the beach, so my husband was able to get up and run on the beach each morning and the kids loved walking down the steps to play in the sand and water. There was plenty of room for everyone--and three bathrooms! (so important when everyone is trying to get ready for a wedding) The master suite is spacious and the bathroom is large. We slept great! There is a beautiful, sunny sitting room upstairs. A very comfortable home! It is not modern, but it is charming and has everything anyone would need or want. We were able to grill and cook. The sitting area outside was lovely in the morning. So many areas to relax. Televisions in all the rooms--we didn't use them, but it is a thoughtful addition.

Beautiful house! Spacious and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Property owner was very nice and accommodating! He gave us a personal tour and was very flexible with check in and check out. The house was very clean and spacious. Everyone was comfortable and had everything we needed for our extended weekend. Parking was included and there is street parking available if you get there early enough!

Our group was in town for a convention and was able to find all the restaurants we needed. There are groceries stores in short driving distance the 7-11 and shell is about half a mile away should you need anything quick.

I recommend staying at the mission house and would very much like to stay again. Thank you very much for having us, it was an absolute pleasure!

Big house with lots of room in a great location with a fantastic owner!

  • 4 of 5

The owners were incredibly helpful with making sure the house was ready for our arrival, and went above and beyond to accommodate our check-in experience. The house is very roomy and was perfect for our family. After the planned renovations are completed to remove the carpet and do a little interior decorating, the house will be even better!

We were very comfortable in this beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of nine stayed for a week in this beautiful house in Long Beach. The house has character and there was plenty of room for us all to be comfortable! We loved the area also since we were able to walk to the beach, parks, a unique little cafe, and shopping.

We are right across the street from the beach. All you do is cross Ocean Blvd go down about 15 steps and you are on the beach. There is a walking/ running path called the strand. You can jog, walk, roller blade or ride bikes on the strand. Naples Island is close by. There are beautiful homes on the Island and gorgeous yachts for your viewing. Belmont Shore is about a 5 minute drive (a 20 minute walk) away. It has a variety of unique stores and many different types of restaurants. The historical district of old homes is 5 minutes by car, a 10 minute walk and 5 minutes by bike. They are worth seeing. The Museum of Arts is 2 blocks away.
