Favorite Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Another perfect stay at a fabulous location. After a wonderful labor day weekend stay here previously, we decided to book it again for a week over July 4th. Once again, the home was perfect for a relaxing vacation at the beach. We had everything we needed, just brought our clothes, food and drinks. Great area, nice neighbors, we will be back again.

A 5 month stay we'll NEVER forget

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband, our one year old daughter and our dog recently drove from Philadelphia to Huntington Beach for a five month stay while my husband was on business. We were at Surf City Beach Cottage from 2/6-6/15 and it was the easiest, most comfortable, wonderful stay we've experienced. I wish I would relive the experience of pulling up and seeing the house for the first time. Pictures do NOT do it justice. The space was MUCH bigger than I expected and they've literally thought of every amenity you could possibly think of.

First, the location was absolutely perfect. Close enough to walk to Pacific City and Main Street, but far enough away to enjoy the quiet. Second, we did not have to bring a single thing with us besides ourselves and our clothes. The house is fully stocked with anything and everything you can possibly imagine. Speakers on the front and back patios, kitchen appliances, a garage full of bikes, beach toys, boogie boards, beach umbrellas and chairs. There was even a high chair hiding in there!

I'd also mention we did a ton of exploring while we were visiting and it was an easy drive to LA, Malibu, Newport, Laguna, San Diego, San Clemente, Carlsbad, Temecula, Disneyland, Catalina, and even Santa Barbara if your stay is long enough to spend a night.

Basically everything about the cottage is perfect and the attention to detail the owners have paid to the property is really something. As I mentioned, we stayed for 5 months and did not have a single issue or complaint. I'm wracking my brain trying to think of one thing that was even just a little 'below average' and can't think of a single thing. Our stay was perfect and we made so many memories in that wonderful little house. We will remember it and cherish it forever. Hopefully we will be back someday soon!

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

My sister, who lives in HB, recently had a baby so we all came to her for the holidays. We rented the Surf City Beach Cottage and it was the perfect house to bring the family together. The owners were extremely accommodating. The location is awesome. The house is beautiful and has a great lay out for groups to get together comfortably. Loved the beach/nautical vibe. We were constantly using the beach cruisers to go on long rides along the beach or to head into downtown HB for lunch or drinks. My mom was SHOCKED at how well the kitchen was stocked. The owners really thought of everything. They even had a beautiful holiday bouquet on the dining room table which we appreciated.

We would definitely rent this house again and highly recommend it.

We turned the key on The Surf City Beach Cottage for a wonderful week we'll never forget...

  • 5 of 5

How to describe the excitement of driving into a beautiful neighborhood, turning the key on the Surf City Beach Cottage, and enjoying a wonderful week right at our fingertips?…

Sunny morning gatherings in the front courtyard, yet elegant lighting and ambiance for dinners in the back courtyard. Steps away from watching a surf competition, but just the right distance to not listen to any traffic noise. I think we walked over to the beach 4 or 5 times a day. We rode the cottage’s bikes on the boardwalk, built sand castles with all of the provided beach toys, had our picture taken with Mickey… Whew! We would love to have stayed another week.

The careful attention to detail and pride of ownership emanates throughout the wonderful home. The owners are very gracious and we are extremely happy with the value received and the amenities included. We can’t wait for our next visit to the Surf City Beach Cottage.

Surf City Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I travel year-round for work, moving every month on average, and over the past 10 years, we have rented many furnished homes. This property is one of our all-time favorites, not just for its quiet neighborhood and proximity to the beach, but also for the beauty, comfort, and amenities of the home itself. We had a total of 4 adults and 2 young children staying there for a month, and we were always comfortable and had lots of room to spread out and find our own space. Michelle and Eric are extremely gracious hosts and were communicative, friendly, and responsive throughout the entire process, from inquiry to check-out. We would definitely stay there again the next time we're in Huntington Beach. Thanks, Michelle and Eric, for a lovely experience!!!
