Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Nicely decorated and an easy walk to the beach. Downtown is about a mile away and there is a great donut shop on 17th and Orange, 3 blocks away. Off street parking and bikes are a plus.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

The house was roomy, clean and well furnished; location was great- about 2.5 short blocks to the beach or just the right distance; about a mile to Main Street and a short walk to Dog Beach. We have stayed directly on PCH before and the noise from PCH was not pleasant and aggravated by the fact that the windows usually have to be open since not many units/homes have AC. This place is just the right distance from PCH but very close to the beach. We would stay here again.

Munich, Germany

Nice, clean, good location

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 3 couples visiting from Munich, Germany. Making a long distance booking is always a tricky thing because you never really know the home owner or broker. Having had some bad experiences in the past with fake ads on homeaway and other sites, I started a dialogue with Michelle before actually making the booking. She was very responsive and forthcoming, which gave me and our group a positive and reassuring feeling.

Unfortunately, homeaway had a major technical glitch right that evening when I wanted to complete the booking and it cost both Michelle and me a lot of time, effort and nerves. I am still waiting for homeaway to get back to me because they actually overcharged me due to their technical incapability and have denied reimbursing me that loss of money, which is outrageous, but a different issue.

Our stay at the Beach Cottage was great. Michelle made sure that we arrived well and she responded to any questions or queries we had immediately. Except for a couple of minor issues that were resolved quickly everything was in best order, just as described and we are happy to recommend the Beach Cottage unreservedly and without hesitation. We had a very nice stay and will definitely consider staying again, when visiting Huntington Beach next year.

Thank you very much for having us, Michelle. Best wishes.

Wonderful !!!

  • 5 of 5

We were at the beach cottage for 2 months. I have rented 3 places before by far this is the best. So comfortable every thing you need is there very well stocked, close enough to downtown to walk or ride bikes that they provide. Neighbors are nice and there is a little market 3 blocks away that is handy. This is a keeper you can not go wrong with this house. Michelle is great and so willing to help with anything. We hope to be back next year, It is a 10

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!

Huntington Beach is an ideal location to unwind and relax. But for the adventurous type LA, Southern California, Temecula's wine country, Big Bear mountains, and the scenic Desert in Palm Springs are all within two hours.

You can even visit Mexico if you bring your passport!
