About Chander

Our family has owned the beach cottage for many years. It was built in 1924 and we are only the second owners since it was constructed. We renovated the cottage with tons of love and care, and added modern amenities while maintaining the original beach cottage charm. Our family lived in the cottage for several years and are now happy to share the joy of the beach with other families and those looking for a relaxing beach get-away.

Great Stay Near Downtown

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay as a family with a toddler. We rode our bikes downtown and to local parks. We loved the beach near the pier, we found it to be the best beach in the whole area. The Tuesday night farmers market was a blast. We ended up driving to the beach since it was a little too far to walk in our opinion with all the beach gear.

A couple notes about the house: I am sadly giving it a 3 star for the following reasons: I feel like it could really use a deep clean. It was super charming and I understand it is 90 years old, but there was quite a bit of dust (Dust rained down when we turned on the fan). Also, the doors were original and some would not latch. The driveway was very narrow and we had to open and close the gates and garage door manually every time we went in an out. Lots of pros for this house as long as you know going in :)

This was the perfect home for our family. Our two daughters, 14 and 20 years appreciated having their own bedrooms, with a connecting bathroom. The home was very clean and was supplied with everything we could possibly need. We enjoyed the use of the bikes in the garage and one day even pulled the wagon to the beach with the beach chairs and umbrella. The location is great, within walking distance to the beach and Main Street. We spent lots of time at the new Pacific City shopping and restaurant area. Chander was always responded quickly to our emails and questions. We would highly recommend this Beach Cottage if traveling to Huntington Beach.

Quaint get away....

  • 4 of 5

Charming 90 year old home within walking distance to the beach! Hotel amenities, and the pay it forward pantry items were a nice perk. Private back yard with plenty of sunshine and seating too. Backing out and pulling in the driveway was a little tricky, needed another person to guide you. (The parking on the street would of obviously been much easier, but was always full.) Lastly, the owner is extremely nice and responds promptly : )
