  • The beach!

    "Great place, literally steps from the beach! Perfect for 1-2, still fits 3-4. Pros: Great beach location away from crowded beach areas, responsive host, available TV options, Brita pitcher, no add-on fees Cons: Parking, internet reach, noise insulation, no a/c, no dishwasher or icemaker, upstairs unit, bathroom light fixture, toilet paper, Don't just count the pro vs con bullets. Pros far outweigh the cons. Details below. The ocean is about 7 lots away across a quiet street, bay is just four lots away. This really is "walking distance", unlike some other places that claim that when they're within a mile of the beach. Parking is scarce, but we found an on-street space right in front of the unit about half the time. The other half we parked on the "main" street right around the corner. Generally looked for parking late at night, after everyone home from work. This was on weekdays though, weekend probably tougher. Wife & I slept in the bdrm, adult kids slept on the couch & sleeper mattress. Compact for 4, but worked fine for us. White noise machine in bdrm - I liked but wife didn't. Kind of funny playing ocean noises just steps from the ocean. But why a noise machine? Windows are single pane - don't do a lot to insulate from noise. This normally doesn't seem to be a problem because it's very quiet in the neighborhood. HOWEVER, there was a remodeling project going on in the alley behind. Hours were approx 0630-1500. They're weren't excessively loud, but normal voices in the alley will carry into the apt. Hopefully, they'll be done by the time you stay here! No a/c, but open windows gave us all the co The internet was pretty fast, about 15-30 Mbps down and 5-10 up. I think it's cable. It slowed down in the evening, but still pretty fast. The wifi din't reach into the bdrm very well, but it was fine in the dining nook and the living room. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything you need including a Brita pitcher in the refrig, but no dishwasher and icemaker (but there are ice cube trays in the freezer). Couple of niggles in bathroom, only 1 roll of toilet paper, light fixture lots of rust. Lupe was very available but also respected our privacy. We were a little nervous about no online payment option, but everything worked out - we just gave her a check when we got there. No add-on fees for this/that like other places. I'd stay again! If you want the beach, here it is!"

  • back to my special place

    "Just completed our second year in Seal Beach staying in Kim and Dan's place. They are fabulous hosts that provide an amazing upscale house to enjoy my favorite city and beach. Everything needed for a relaxing, stress-free holiday is here. You feel as if you are staying in a first class, yet homey hotel. The beach is steps away as is the main street of a 50's style community. We are sure to return for years to come!"

  • Wonderful, quiet location with ocean views

    "Stayed here 8 months while in a transition period between selling our home and moving out of state. The home was perfect for what we were looking for - quiet and peaceful with great outdoor space, ocean views and bright light. Owner was extremely responsive with any questions we had and was flexible with our timing and end date. Would definitely stay there again!"
