Notes:
Seal Beach is situated perfectly between Los Angles & Orange County for day adventures up and down the coast or head to the mountains. Many vacationers know Seal Beach as the place to arrive - unload the car and just walk everywhere within minuets from our 4 Beach Cottages. * Disney Land? Many folks Uber / Lyft to save time from parking. Think of the time you will save from not having to park - taking the tram and standing in the waiting lines. You will gain one hour in time with Uber / Lyft to the park& another hour when you leave. You have been in lines all day. Now its time to go home and relax. We are very close to the LA parks and museums as well. Spend a ay in LA just checking out the sights - getting lost in a cool way while LA shopping- dining or just exploring the areas. *San Diego on your list ? We are about 1 1/2 hour drive. Well worth the drive. *Catalina Island is just 25 miles off Seal Beach - go for the day out of New Port or Long Beach. (worth doing) *

Everything we needed for a relaxing small beach town getaway

  • 5 of 5

This Bungalow was perfect for my two teenage sons, my husband and I. We all had plenty of room to relax together or in our own space! The rooftop deck with the grill is a great hang out, and even though we were there during a major heat wave, we were comfortable inside the house with all the fans. The kitchen has everything you'll need, and the small room near the back door comes in handy for stashing extra suitcases, etc. The home was very clean and well maintained. Great location: in Seal Beach walk to all the town has to offer AND in SoCal --20 minutes to everything! Elena and Kai were welcoming and attentive during our entire stay. We hope to come back soon!

The PERFECT Get Away Home!!!! Will definitely stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

We looked high and low for the perfect place to stay in Seal Beach, CA as it is our favorite place to go to relax and play at the same time. After finding this Cottage thru VRBO we knew we found the right place. It was everything that the description said it would be and more. The owners are super friendly and available to answer any questions. A very important note to make, the owners want nothing more than for everything to be perfect for your stay. They went far and beyond to make it perfect for us including snacks in the refrigerator for us to eat after our long flight and before our trip to the grocery store. We will definitely be staying here again. Thank you so much Kai and Elena!!!!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Elena and Kye are very friendly to start! They were available for any questions, so kind and accommodating. The Pineapple cottage has literally everything one needs from a fully stocked kitchen to cook if you so wish, coffee makers, a kettle for tea and plenty of dishes, silverware, wine glasses, coffee mugs etc., for entertaining which we did for my family that live nearby. The beds are cosy, there are loads of linens, towels, beach gear, umbrellas, including boogie boards which was a highlight for us. This two bedroom cottage is filled with plenty of blankets and throws for getting warm, and a lovely fireplace under the large television including a dvd player and an additional tele in the kids room which was perfect for my daughter and my niece age 20 and 22 who stated since they had their own flats would likely not sleep over but ended up not leaving because they were so cosy! There is a front garden in which we sat in every morning for the whole month, and a deck that was also available and private. I lived in Seal Beach as a child, and nothing has changed, it is still as lovely and serene as I remember. The cottage is literally a quaint alley away from the sea and is private, clean, quite with soft sand and a perfect getaway from our busy city in Scotland. Main street with fantastic shops and restaurants is a 5 minute walk from the cottage. We immediately felt at home with everything the cottage has in warmth and privacy. Elena and Kyle have a lovely home and we loved every minute of our stay. Hope to be back soon!

Owner's Response: Alicia: We were very excited to get your review. :) People get very busy & we hate to bother them for a review. So, thank in advance. We are happy you both enjoyed the cottage & I got your daughter the art you left in the bedroom the day you left. She was happy to receive it and teared up saying she missed you already. You have a beautiful daughter!!!! Enjoy the Holidays and hope to see you on your next Seal Beach adventure. May 2018 be festive for you both. Cheers. Elena

Perfectly wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Best location - beach out back, quiet neighborhood, and the pier and Main Street with its shops and restaurants only a delightful walk away. A true bungalow with that cottage feel is inviting and cozy with a floor plan that feels open and airy. Great décor with attention to detail and ample accommodations made this trip back to Seal Beach all we had hoped...a great place to relax and read and chat, as well as go out and have fun in the sea and sand and in town, too. Ambiance and comfort equal special days to remember. Thank you Elena, Kye and Liberty for sharing your darling home with us. What a treat!

Owner's Response: Jamie - After 5 years of visits - we always enjoy having you and Mayela & she is getting tall? She is so sweet and polite. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We hope your month stay got you relaxed and ready for summer. Maybe we need to block you out for the entire summer in 2018. :) Cheers and enjoy the rest of the year until we meet again. Elena

Car: recommended

We are located one house behind the Boardwalk / Pacific Ocean (or) about 7 homes down Seal Way or Ocean Ave- a quick walk to the beach. We do not have a view, but you are just steps away.

Seal Beach is situated perfectly between Los Angles & Orange County for day adventures up and down the coast or head to the mountains. Many vacationers know Seal Beach as the place to arrive - unload the car and just walk everywhere within minutes from our 4 Beach Cottages.

* Disney Land? Many folks Uber / Lyft to save time from parking. Think of the time you will save from not having to park - taking the tram and standing in the waiting lines. You will gain one hour in time with Uber / Lyft to the park& another hour when you leave. You have been in lines all day. Now its time to go home and relax.

We are very close to the LA parks and museums as well. Spend a day in LA just checking out the sights - getting lost in a cool way while LA shopping- dining or just exploring the areas.

*San Diego on your list? We are about 1 1/2-hour drive. Well worth the drive.

*Catalina Island is just 25 miles off Seal Beach - go for the day out of New Port or Long Beach. (worth doing)

* Sports - Dodges - Angles - Lakers & Anaheim Ducks are all close sporting events from Seal Beach.

* Concerts - plays? We have many venues close to Seal Beach. How cool to see a concert while on vacation? Try- Segerstrom Concert Hall - Anaheim Concert Hall - Long Beach Entertainment Center - Long Beach State University (Carpenter Performing Arts)

* Golf - Many close locations to Seal Beach

All 4 Cottages are located just steps to the Pacific Ocean - take some time to just relax and put your toes in the water and then take a nap on the beach. Wake up & then walk to Main Street to eat. Come relax and make some memories. Your vacation is your journey to relaxing times at the beach.

- The Pineapple Cottage (one Bed)

- The Pineapple Bungalow (2Bed)

- The Starfish Cottage (one Bed)

- The Starfish Bungalow (2 bed)

Don’t forget about the Seal Beach 10 & 5k in April/May. The Kite festival (check out the kite store on Main Street) and Free music in the park during the summer months. We look forward to seeing you soon along the Pacific Coast.
