A beautiful home with a backyard oasis - better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful five-night stay here. The house is in a very walkable neighborhood with great restaurants around the corner. Easy access to the 405 - grocery stores nearby. We made several runs to LAX for relatives and found 30-45 minutes each way. The house is a mid-century marvel, furnishings and tasteful decor to match. The backyard is an oasis - lush and green - perfectly private with a large pool and shaded patio. The owners have gone all-out to ensure that guests have everything they need here. Very highly recommend - we would most definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: I am happy I could provide a unique, relaxing space to prepare for your daughter's wedding celebration. You were the best guests ever -- clear communicators, responsible and tidy. Please do come back anytime you visit the Southern California coast! Best regards, Jean

Gorgeous home gracious hostess

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house. We booked it to be closer to my mothers 70th birthday festivities and couldn’t have been more pleased. Close to great restaurants and amenities, plenty of room for everyone to rest comfortably and the house is absolutely gorgeous. My family have all said that it will be the booking of choice whenever they plan to visit the South Bay. And to top it all off Eugenie was amazing, friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone

Wonderful visit.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house. Especially loved having the pool in the back yard. It had everything available to use. We did not need to bring any extras. I would definitely stay at this house again. Eugenia was very nice. She checked up to make sure that we were able to get into the house. Always texted me back right away when I had a question or concern. Thank you, Eugenia, for letting us stay at your wonderful home.

Charming home in a quiet neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

I have never felt so at home! My family loved the house, from the unique decor, open rooms, to the pool in the backyard! Jean was great with check in and staying in touch during our stay. Her resources for what was around the house were awesome to refer to as well! 10/10 would stay again!

Comfortable stay in mid century modern home

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable relaxing stay in the mid century modern home for one week to attend a wedding. We especially enjoyed the indoor outdoor living of the dining room and back patio with the refreshing pool. The big windows flooded the room with natural light and the big screen doors let the gentle breeze in for very easy comfortable living that made it enjoyable. However we did run the air conditioner for a few days during a mini heat wave and it worked fine. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are nice. We made our own breakfast (nice stove/oven) and ate dinner out most nights. The neighborhood is nice and an easy walk to restaurants.

I recommend this house. Jean the owner is also very accommodating and responsive.

Lovely stay in a lovely house

  • 5 of 5

House was lovely with a beautiful garden with pool. All amenities are there. Spent the last 4 days of our holiday from England at Jeans house so we could rest having toured California for the previous couple of weeks. It proved to be the right choice as the house and garden are ideal for relaxing and restaurants etc. are walking distance from the house (good as we were a bit car crazy). Jean is on hand if you have any questions, if not you are left alone.

Owner's Response: I'm really glad you were able to relax and enjoy the pool and environs in Long Beach on the last leg of your California tour! Thanks for selecting my 50s furnished home I'm adding Cornwall to my bucket list based on your recommendation! You were lucky to miss an unbearable heat wave with temps up to 116 deg F on Friday! Best regards, Jean
