  • Clean and comfortable

    "We stayed here for 6 nights and enjoyed the comforts of home. The photos do not do it justice. The owners are very friendly and helpful. It really has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Thanks again!"

  • 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!"

  • Perfect Long Beach Vacation!

    "My family was in Long Beach for a dance convention. My older daughter and I would go to the dance convention each day while my husband and younger daughter would enjoy checking out Long Beach or playing on the beach in front of the condo. The condo was immaculate! It was SO clean, fresh and cool when we arrived! Air conditioning throughout was a major bonus although it was never oppressively hot out. The room darkening shades in the bedrooms made it easy for us to sleep well every night (which says a lot for a family coming from the mountains with NO neighbors, lots of dark and quiet). Street noise was not bothersome or noticeable to this mountain gal or my kids! The condo was well stocked with kitchen supplies (even tupperware and ziplocs!), beach towels, beach toys, beach chairs, beach umbrella, bath towels and hairdryers!! The view was unbeatable and we enjoyed having morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the beach. I saw other comments that the bathrooms need updating, but I guess I'm old school~I find the features in the baths charming and a statement to the character of when the building was built. Plus, you can tell the owners are working their way through updates throughout the unit and I wouldn't be surprised if bathroom remodels were coming sometime in the future. I, for one, was just fine with the bathrooms as they were very clean, had lots of towels and washcloths, and hairdryers. Mark and Lorrie were a joy to work with. Mark walked us through everything we needed to know at check in and really made sure we "got it" in concerns to parking, key codes, and helping maintain the building and our unit. The added bonus of laundry detergent and quarters for your first load was huge since we had just come from Disneyland and had lots of laundry to do. Mark also gave us some great restaurant and activity recommendations. Dinner at King's Fish House was a highlight. I went on several walks and always felt safe on the beach bath and around town. Lorrie was helpful and responsive to any questions or requests we had and I loved how quickly she always got back to me. With a great location on the beach, awesome amenities throughout, close to the convention center in a vivacious town at such a great price we are looking forward to coming back!!"

  • Very clean! Terrific.

    "This place worked great for us. It was a unit, not a house (I don't know why we had that impression). We have two daughters who shared the full bed and put our teen son on the futon in the living room. We loved having a kitchen and used the bbq outside every night. The complex is older but well maintained, and super clean. It was driving distance to CSULB and Disney. Because of the sea wall the waves are super mellow, and would be good for folks with smaller children."
