About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Cottage - Amazing backyard & close to Downtown HB & beach

Ideal for families and long-term rentals! Great location in a quaint and bustling neighborhood, just a few blocks from Main Street, walking distance to the beautiful recently opened Pacific City shopping/dining complex and about 1/2 mile from the beach. There is usually ample street parking available (busier during summer and special events). Please Note: This is a high-traffic area in the summer months due to its location.

Built in 1920, this fully-furnished 1,100 square foot historic beach cottage has been completely upgraded with modern amenities while retaining its original charm. The cottage offers a serene and private backyard oasis with an outdoor living room, cozy gas fireplace and large soothing spa with custom rock waterfall. Cook and enjoy dining outside with the built-in gas BBQ and spacious dining area.

The fully-appointed kitchen with granite counters, gas stove, convection oven and stainless steel appliances opens up to light and airy family room and bar area.

The cottage has 3 cozy bedrooms and can sleep up to 6: The master has a queen size bed, dresser and smart TV, large closet, ceiling fan and private access to a sunny patio and backyard. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, ceiling fan and large closet. The third bedroom has a daybed with a trundle bed that can be configured with 1 or 2 twin beds, a ceiling fan and an armoire.

There are 2 full bathrooms: the spa-like master bath has a spacious shower with dual shower heads and separate jetted tub as well as dual sinks. The hall bath has a large tiled shower and pedestal sink.

The cottage has a quiet, full-size, stacked washer and dryer combo conveniently tucked away in the kitchen.

Books, games and movies are available for all ages, as well as children's toys. Cable TV, Blu-Ray players and high-speed wireless internet are included.

Beach cruisers, beach toys, blanket, beach wagon, boogie boards, beach chairs/umbrella and beach towels are available for use.

High-chair, booster and pack-n-play are available upon request for families with small children.

Please note: The maximum occupancy is limited to six people, including children. Clean, mature, responsible and considerate renters only. No parties, large gatherings or events are allowed.

****Long-term renters welcome! Please contact owner with long-term rental inquiries.****

Huntington Beach has consistently received recognition for being one of the best vacation spots in the U.S. Our community features one of the largest recreational piers in the world, public parks, riding stables and equestrian trails, a marina, a wildlife preserve, and an eight-mile biking, inline skating, jogging, and walking trail along the ocean. The crown jewel of the recreation system is the 8.5 miles of wide, spacious beaches where in the summer, large crowds gather to watch the U.S Open of Surfing, AVP Pro Beach Volleyball, and other sporting events.

There is a wide range of dining options, with hundreds of restaurants offering everything from casual to fine dining. Shoppers will find paradise in stores that range from local shops and boutiques to national chains and department stores. The city is centrally located to all major attractions in Orange County including Disney Resorts, Knott’s Berry Farm, the Orange County Performing Arts Center and Repertory Theater, and the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific. Los Angeles is located 35 miles to the northwest and San Diego is 95 miles to the southeast. Huntington Beach is conveniently located near three airports: John Wayne/Orange County (SNA), Long Beach (LGB), and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

About The Owner

Huntington Beach is our home and we love the community. It is special to us because we got married here and are now raising our family here. The beach lifestyle and weather cannot be beat, especially for us since we grew up in Northern CA and Chicago! We love to take advantage of all that Huntington Beach and Southern California have to offer.

Why The Owner chose Huntington Beach

We wanted to own a small piece of vintage Huntington Beach and share it with our family and friends.

What makes this cottage unique

Unique, private backyard amenities, not usually found in downtown properties. Central and convenient location.

Oasis in Huntington Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful house for our family visit. It was tastefully decorated throughout, comfortable beds, a well stocked kitchen, and an outstanding outdoor space. The garden features an amazing spa with a waterfall feature, and an outdoor fireplace area that became a great gathering spot for everyone after dark. We enjoyed having close proximity to the beach and town, and had fun walks to breakfast and dinner when we weren't cooking. The owner was really attentive to making sure we had everything we needed for a great stay.

A Fabulous Beach Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the privilege of staying in this perfect beach cottage for 7 months while we looked for a house. It was an experience we will remember forever. The cottage is outfitted with everything you could possibly need for a day or a month...or 7 months. The backyard is bit of paradise with the grotto jacuzzi & fireplace. The location is ideal, close to beaches, downtown, Pacific City etc... The owners did everything they could to make our stay as great as possible. I would recommend this cottage to everyone, it really is perfect!

Best Little Beach Cottage Around!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented the cottage for the week of Thanksgiving while visiting from the East Coast. We couldn't have asked for more! The location is ideal - walking distance to Main Street and the pier, as well as the new Pacific City retail/restaurant complex. The accommodations were beyond expectations - adorably decorated, squeaky clean and stocked with games, kitchen supplies, toiletries, etc. The cottage includes beach cruiser bikes, which we loved having at our disposal! But the crown jewel was the amazing oasis of a backyard with a built in BBQ and hot tub. Perfect for our family gatherings! We can't wait to stay here again! Thank you so much for your hospitality!!
