Why Mark Mukai chose South Wrigley

We love this family friendly safe neighborhood convenient to freeways, beaches, and LA's biggest attractions! Relax in our cozy retreat and enjoy the beautiful weather in sunny Southern California! Take a bike out to pristine Shoreline Village on the beach located just 10 minutes away. The entrance to this popular bike path is just three minutes from the house. Or alternatively, take bus line 181 which picks you up directly in front of the property and explore Long Beach's nightlife! Great restaurants, bars, comedy clubs, and family attractions await you!

What makes this house unique

The City of Long Beach is steps away to world famous beaches, modern shopping centers, tons of great restaurants, and major attractions like the Queen Mary, Spruce Goose, Aquarium of the Pacific, and Shoreline Village. Moreover, Long Beach Airport is just two short miles away and because we're not in the flight path, we are not affected by airplane noise. Additionally, the Convention Center is less than two miles away and can be accessed on a bus (line 181) that picks up directly in front of our property!

Long Beach is a suburban neighborhood south of Los Angeles situated away from busy city traffic and annoying helicopter/plane noise. We are blessed to have great public transportation that can easily take you anywhere from Hollywood, Downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Universal Studios, Beverly Hills, and Beaches!

If you have a day to spend, take a ferry out to Catalina Island! The boarding dock is just 10 minutes away!

Our home is centrally located near the I-710 and I-405 freeways and public transportation, including a bus-line/rail-line to Downtown Los Angeles and Long Beach Convention Center.

Although public transportation is great in our area, having a car is strongly recommended in Southern California.

So cute!

  • 4 of 5

I had a lovely time staying here and the room was the perfect size. I also really appreciated being able to park in the driveway as parking on the street was a bit challenging. The closeness to the airport was a plus, too. The hosts were super communicative and helpful!

Lovely place, would stay again!!

  • 5 of 5

Was greeted with a lovely welcome sign with my name on the door. Getting to the place was super easy, the owner was quick to communicate and helpful.

The place was clean and quiet, I liked that it was a separate space which allowed me to decompress a bit. Very comfortable, had a large bed, AC, nice clean shower and bathroom. Plenty of amenities to feel comfortable.

Loved this stay and couldn't recommend it enough!

ADORABLE!!!

  • 5 of 5

Such a cute place! Much nicer than pictures convey. Close to all the big attractions in the Los Angeles area. On top of that, you get your own private driveway to park your vehicle! The unit itself is bright, tasteful, and comfortable. And the backyard is a true oasis! The ultimate play yard for families with kids. Would absolutely recommend to all. Mark & Chay, THANK YOU!!!
