  • 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!"

  • Like a 5 star hotel !!!

    "We love this condo. I recently stayed here as my business took me to downtown Long Beach for two months. My wife joined me for the last two weeks. She loved walking to everything including the movies, shopping and the aquarium. The condo is bright and sunny with comfortable furniture and wonderful decoration. The quite location and friendly staff made staying here our only choice from now on when business takes us to Long Beach!"

  • 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."

  • Casa Blanca in April

    "This is our second time renting this property. On both occasions, we rented in April with our group of 5-7 guys. Casa Blanca offers an excellent location. It's close walking distance to Belmont Shore Pier, beach, restaurants and Von's Market. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook at home and for us, the main feature is the expansive outdoor patio area with numerous tables and seating for all. Evenings spent outside grilling and enjoying the ocean breeze and views are just about perfect. I highly recommend this property for groups and family's looking for a great location between Long Beach and 2nd Street. The owner, Tom Duncan is extremely responsive and informative and has been a pleasure to deal with."
