About Dave and Ulla Arthur

I grew up in Long Beach but have lived in Huntington Beach for the past 25 years. This is a wonderful and fun city and it is perfect for anyone wanting to spend some time by the beach on their vacation and specially nice for families with children of all ages. Disney land, Knotts Berry Farm, Universal Studios and Magic Mountain are all close by.

I live just a few blocks away with my wife and two children, so I am available at all times if any issues arise.

Dave and Ulla Arthur purchased this bungalow in 2002

Why Dave and Ulla Arthur chose Orange County

I lived in Huntington Beach for the last 25 years and have seen many changes over the years as older homes have been torn down to make room for the newer tall and skinny homes. I wanted to preserve this beautiful bungalow that sits on a double lot and is almost 90 years old. It has been newly painted and cared for over the years and is relaxing and comfortable to stay in.

What makes this bungalow unique

Nice big backyards are becoming very rare this close to the beach in Huntington where you can enjoy resting, relaxing on a big deck overlooking a spacious yard. Inside is big, open and very relaxing. The front porch is perfect for people watching, relaxing and catching some beautiful sunsets.

Car: recommended

Beautiful beaches just minutes away with bike paths and scenic views of one of the best beaches of Orange County. Many amusement parks close by car like Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Universal Studios Six flags and many others in Southern California. Newport Beach is very close by going south on PCH, with many restaurants and beautiful marinas for sailing or to enjoy the day and night cruises. Going North on PCH you will drive through a few cute beach cities, Sunset and Seal Beach, before arriving in Long Beach where you can also find fun and lots of fun happening at different Marinas and Main St. and pine St. The famous Queen Mary is anchored in Long Beach as well.

Wonderful rental with attentive hosts

  • 5 of 5

This is a Charming bungalow just blocks from the beach and downtown. The layout was perfect for us and the front porch and spacious back yard add to its charm. The owners are attentive and have thought of absolutely everything you would need for a stay (We stayed one month) Kitchen is well stocked and there is also a grill, washer dryer and comfy bedding. I could go on and on about the owners and the special touches that make this feel like HOME , not just a rental. Thank you for a special time spent with my family! Highly recommended this rental!

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending 12 nights in this unique property. It was the best experience we've ever had with VRBO. The owner was extremely kind. She provided everything we could possibly want or need, from fresh fruit and flowers upon our arrival, to making sure my 2 small grandchildren had a truly magical stay.

The house was immaculately clean. Perfect location. Perfect Vacation!

I wish I could keep this place to myself!!

The house is lovely and even better than the photos. Spacious with all the comforts of home. The yard and deck are beautiful. Walking distance to the beach (and dog beach), Huntington Pier, and restaurants. Lovely neighborhood and friendly people. Check in / out was easy. We would definitely recommend!

Clean and Comfortable with a Great back yard

  • 5 of 5

This Bungalow is well taken care of and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is located perfectly in downtown Huntington Beach. There is a two minute walk to the beach and downtown where there are lots of restaurants and shopping. We really enjoyed the recently opened Pacific City too with Great restaurants and fun shopping. You can get there by walking through downtown which is always pleasant and entertaining.

The back yard is amazing for relaxing and hanging out with the Family. The two rooms in the back each has their own access to the back yard and we really appreciate the private parking spot behind the studio off the alley, that is reserved for bungalow visitors. Parking can be a real hassle, so having a private spot is key here. All in all, this place is well worth every penny and the owner/manager is easy to work with and available for questions and help at any moments notice. We had a great time here and will be coming back for sure :)

A cozy HB getaway

  • 4 of 5

We recently rented this cute, clean and spacious 3 BR, 2 bath Craftsman in downtown Huntington Beach for a month. It had everything we needed to enjoy our stay (including a doggy door) and was very conveniently located. Our hostess, Ulla, was very helpful and when some plumbing problems arose, she dealt with them in a timely manner. We'd stay there again if our future plans include a return to HB.

Best house EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been renting for most of the summer in Huntington Beach for the last 5 years. We feel so fortunate to have stumbled upon the BEST house and location AND owner EVER!!! We got to spend 5 glorious weeks in this charming Bungalow that had everything we needed or could want. The location is just close enough to main and the beach, but not so close that it is noisy. We had our two golden retrievers with us and the yard was perfect for them!!! We loved that only two short blocks away was a convince store, three restaurants and a hair and tanning salon!!! Can't wait till next summer!!! Thank you Ulla, your beautiful home and you created an unforgettable summer for my family!!!
