Surfside Colony is a guard-gated neighborhood of beach-side homes located between Seal Beach and Huntington Beach, California. Easily accessed by freeway and Pacific Coast Highway, it is close to shopping, restaurants, theaters, golf courses, and such major attractions as Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, the Queen Mary, the Aquarium of the Pacific, and deluxe shopping at South Coast Plaza.
No home in Surfside is more than 75 feet from the beach, and the sound of the waves and salt tang of the breeze give this water-side community a unique marine atmosphere. The community has been a seaside destination for Southern Californians since 1929, and no two houses are alike. Our broad, sandy private beach is great for strolling and shell collecting.
Recreational possibilities include beach combing, surfing, fishing, shell collecting, swimming, wind surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding and kite surfing, and golfing. All of Southern California's major attractions are close by.

Great Property on the Beach
We had a great family vacation at this beach house. It is literally on the ocean with beautiful views. The weather was perfect. The amenities were great. The bedrooms were very nice. We certainly appreciated all the towels and linens and the washer and dryer in the garage. The kitchen was great and there are a number of grocery stores close by. Mary Ellen was fantastic. She was very helpful with everything in the area. We would certainly recommend this lovely beach home. Thanks for a great trip.
Comfy home on Private beach
Had a wonderfully relaxing stay in this fully equipped house. Very conveniently located, lots to do & see nearby. My favorite part was just walking up and down the beautiful private beach. House had everything to make our stay comfortable & owners are great. We grilled several times & loved the back patio & upper balcony. There is view in front bedroom as well as master is full oceanfront. The community is in a historic village (surfside) that is gated & lovely to walk or bike. Enjoyed reading about the community & had great books to read at house! We left you a few that we finished while there too! Hated to leave!!! We will probably rent next year if schedules allow. Thank you for opening your home, Mary Ellen & Bill!
An Amazing Month
Without a doubt Surfside Colony is an amazing private beach gem not to be missed. This home is charming and filled with love. We have spent the last month waking up to the sounds of the ocean on our private beach, surrounded by a fun community, enjoying the festive Labor day weekend and lots of great memories. We can not wait to come back and would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a respite from their daily grind. Thank you MaryEllen and Bill for sharing your family home with us. We are eternally grateful.
Wonderful beach house
We chose this rental as a week away before my oldest son goes off to college. It was very comfortable and and clean. We enjoyed the location it is very close to Disneyland, Queen Mary and many other Southern California attractions. It was especially nice to wake up to the sound of the ocean. Mary Ellen is a joy to work with and our stay was all that we had hoped it would be..
Perfect Vacation place for family and friends
We stayed here with a 1.5 year old and a 3 month old and it was a perfect place to have a beautiful view of the ocean from the living room/kitchen to the glassed in porch or two steps away on the sand. Sleepy family friendly beach with some serious July 4th parties! House has EVERYTHING you could need, down to booster seats and a fabulous jacuzzi, master bedroom has beautiful view and another deck overlooking ocean. Everything thoughtfully put together, from condiments in the fridge to nice towels, sheets, etc.
Everything was perfect in this home. We were pleasantly surprised that all the descriptions were accurate along with the previous reviews written by others. We had 5 adults and one child and were very comfortable in the home. The home was stocked with everything. The private beach was the best part, we had the whole beach to ourselves. The suggested eateries were spot on and we found a few on our own too. We look forward to returning to this property and dealing with MaryEllen was very easy. As I said, it was PERFECT.
Guests like you are such a pleasure. Thank you for your kind comments. Hope you'll return soon!
