About the property

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom + One Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This is a cozy (700 square foot), single level one bedroom, one bath, just steps to the pristine sand - a quiet bungalow surrounded by cozy cottages and magnificent mansions. Fully equipped and completely charming with full kitchen, microwave, stove and refrigerator. Built-in kitchen 'nook' in dining area. Sleeps 4, one kingsize bed and one fold out queen sofa bed. Beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated with a touch of 'beach funk'! Includes one parking space.

Can be rented with adjoining unit, mirror image. VRBO #147333. Check for availability.

Seal Beach is located just 22 miles south of Los Angeles, at the northern end of Orange County. Visitors seeking the California dream of beach, sun and ocean need look no further. Take sunset walks on the pier, watch world class surfing in the quiet retreat of undiscovered Seal Beach. Walk to Main Street and appreciate the still small-town atmosphere of eclectic boutiques, coffee shops, and restaurants.

In early April, the roar of Grand Prix race cars echoes through the city streets of Long Beach (just a mile north) during the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Weekends host a Farmers Market in the nearby Alamito’s Bay Marina - and don’t miss the nearby Aquarium of the Pacific at Shoreline Village, at the foot of Pine Street in Long Beach. This is a harbor side shopping center with specialty shops, restaurants, a restored Looff carousel, and occasional live boardwalk entertainment.

Twenty minutes to Newport Beach, and Balboa Island night life. Thirty minutes to Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm. Two hour ferry to Santa Catalina Island (not to be missed!) Activities include fishing, sea kayaking, surfing, hiking, sailing, windsurfing, jet-skiing. Try whale watching or ride the Ferris wheel and the bumper cars at the Balboa Fun Zone - or take the Balboa Ferry to Balboa Island for just 60 cents!

Get ready to stretch out, relax and watch the wave of the Pacific Ocean roll gently toward the shore. Whether it’s a leisurely stroll along the beach, the roar of world-class stock cars racing in the shadow of glittering Long Beach skyscrapers, a picnic at one of the many local parks, or a concert under the moonlit sky, Seal Beach is a perfect vacation get-a-way. You can even experience a serenade by the gondoliers rowing an authentic gondola in the Venetian style on a cruise through local canals. Ocean breezes waft gently off the Pacific along a stretch of coastal paradise, while in the distance, a tall ship sets sail - These sights and many more await the visitor to romantic Seal Beach. Time to pack!

Why Nancy chose Old Towne

There is not a better feeling than being in the unique area of Seal Beach...palm trees, small town feel with 'Main Street' boutigues and coffee shops, the sound of the waves is a hidden jewel that we could not help but fall in love with!

Excellent location and cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

Nancy was a pleasure to work with. Her cottage is precious with everything you could need. It was clean and loved having a washing machine and dryer in the garage. Loved the grill, the beach chairs to take to beach and the short walk to the beach and to be able to walk to town. This was lovely and will rent again if we are in the area.

Great home with good amenities

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to this property was as expected. Homey, beachy, clean and comfy. My daughter (and granddog) once again enjoyed this cottage by the beach. Great location to downtown Seal Beach where the shopping and restaurants only get better each time we visit.

Very comfortable beach bungalow. Home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

We loved this property. It's in a great location, quiet, and right next to the beach. It is supplied with anything you would need for your stay. Including a washer and dryer. Seal Beach city main street within walking distance. Such a quaint experience. Nancy is very helpful with any questions you may have. I would definitely come back to this vrbo.
