***Please email owner for detailed quote and minimum-stay requirements.

Our beautiful, charming and affordable classic beach cottage is located in world-famous downtown Huntington Beach, a.k.a. Surf City USA, home to the annual US Surfing Open!

The cottage is within a SHORT & EASY WALK to Main Street, the Pacific Ocean, Pacific City, miles of white-sand beaches with amazing surfing, the iconic HB pier, tons of restaurants and pubs, Starbucks, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, local coffee joints, shops, delis, CVS, 7-Eleven, and much more.

Our cottage is lovingly cared by our family who has owned the property for many years and is our son, Cab's, favorite place to be. Our cottage was built in 1924. We lived in the cottage with our family for several years, and updated the bathrooms, kitchen and other amenities. But, we were careful to maintain the cottage’s original character. You will find our home has lots of beach cottage charm, yet it is functional and a wonderful place to stay. Our cottage is a real home, and it is not a hotel by any means. Our cottage is truly one of the originally-designed and small-but-mighty beach cottages of coastal California.

The cottage has many of the original features along with multiple comfort-inspired upgrades. You will enjoy a 1,000 square foot classic beach cottage with gorgeous beach-inspired decor throughout the 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, which features Bedroom #1 with a queen-size bed and attached Jack-and-Jill bathroom; Bedroom #2 with a twin-size bed and built-in office, roll-a-way twin bed, and access to the Jack-and-Jill bathroom; and Bedroom #3 with a queen-size bed and fold-out twin size bed.

The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, utensils, glassware, Tupperware plates/cups/utensils for kids, pots & pans, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, full-size island stove and oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, and island seating for 5 people.

The cottage also features a private picket-fenced front yard with porch, large fenced back yard with bench seating and a Weber BBQ, 2 televisions with complimentary cable, complimentary wireless internet access for use with your personal devices, washer and dryer, 2-car parking (*please see important parking information below), Radio Flyer wagon for beach gear and kids, beach toys for kids, toys and books, high chair, pack-n-play, 2 baby gates, 2 adults beach cruisers, 2 kids' bikes, 2 boogie boards, 1 beach umbrella, linens, iron & ironing board, hair blow dryer, plenty of white bathroom towels, and a stack of beach towels for your use at the beach.

The charming beach cottage is perfect for a family vacation or romantic get-away.

Within a close drive, you can enjoy all that Orange County has to offer, such as Disneyland & California Adventure Parks, Knott's Berry Farm, Medieval Times, South Coast Plaza Shopping Mall in Costa Mesa, Fashion Island Mall in Newport Beach, Balboa & Lido Island in Newport Beach, Corona Del Mar, Laguna Beach, Sunset Beach, and Seal Beach ...

Less than a 1-hour drive away, without traffic, you can enjoy the Long Beach Aquarium, Los Angeles, Hollywood, and Universal Studios ... and,

San Diego is also about a 1.5 hour drive away, without traffic, where you can visit the San Diego Zoo & Wild Animal Park, Sea World, and Legoland!

* PARKING: Car parking at popular southern California beach towns is tough, especially when a house or establishment is a close distance to the beach. Our cottage in downtown Huntington Beach has no exception to the parking crunch because it is within walking distance to the beach and pier. However, we are lucky to have a shared driveway and a garage. We offer our guests the option to park in the garage, directly in front of the garage, or on the street. The driveway is shared with our neighbors, so we ask that our guests never block the driveway at any time. There are gates on the driveway – that require guests to manually open/close the gates before driving up/down the driveway. The driveway is original to the cottage and it is narrow (this makes it difficult but not impossible to park larger vehicles), so we ask that our guests take it slow and be cautious when driving in and backing out. There is a limit of 2 cars on the property at all times. After many failed/broken automatic garage door clickers, we learned a valuable lesson that a simple manual garage door handle never fails! To access our garage, the garage door opens manually and easily by using a center handle on the front of the garage door. Any visitors of registered guests must always park on the street, at all times. In all, we are lucky to provide our guests with parking, but we want to be sure our guests understand the quirks of parking at our cottage, and, in general, just how limited parking is in a popular southern California beach town!

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.

Beautiful house, nice neighborhood. So great to have boogie boards, beach wagon, beach towels, and especially enjoyed the bikes! Owner was easy to work with, returned our call right away when we had a question.

Location, owner response time, size of the home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the home, location was perfect close to beach and downtown as well as Pacific city all within walking distance but yet far enough to not have to hear the noise of the busy downtown area. Yard was perfect to enjoy an evening outside enjoying smores with the kids. Owner was very helpful and responds to any questions, concerns in a timely manner. Definitely a good place.

Great Little House and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our trip to Huntington Beach. We had 4 adults and 2 teenage kids with plenty of room. Chander was great to work with and the house had all the little things we needed for our stay and for a great time at the beach! A short walk to Main Street and a great time for all of us.

Charming Beach Cottage in the heart of Huntington Beach

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous 6 night stay (7/5 - 7/11) in the charming beach cottage. This house is so cute, and while compact, had plenty of space for our group of 8 (4 adults, 4 kids). The house is an older cottage with all the cute details you would expect. We were all pleasantly surprised at how efficient everything operated, especially considering there were 8 of us showering daily. We never ran out of hot water! The location of this house cannot be beat. It is a short walk to Main Street and the beach. Each morning we adults walked to Starbucks for coffee before taking a stroll down the pier and beach. In the afternoon we would load up the wagon with all the great items supplied by the house (wagon, beach umbrella, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, sand toys) and walk down to the beach for hours of fun. Main Street is also a lot of fun. Lots of places for meals, drinks, desserts, convenience snacks, shopping, etc. We adults strolled back to Main Street most evenings for happy hour at the many eclectic restaurants and bars along the way. We had the best time and hope to make this an annual trip.

very clean, good location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 adults and a 2 year old, all thought the home was wonderful. Fenced front and back yard helped with toddler adventures, all the bikes and wagon with beach toys and blanket were well used. Walked to the beach and thru town multiple times a day. Would like to return someday.
