Great house for large group

  • 5 out of 5
Casa Blanca's location couldn't be more perfect. Within walking distance from the beach or a quick drive to amusement parks. The house was very cozy yet very roomy. We had thirteen people and we were able to be spread out all over the house, it was awesome. We didn't run into any issues. We utilized the outdoor patio area most of the nights we were there. We met the owners who were extremely friendly. The breeze coming in through the windows cooled off the house perfectly. There are plenty of towels in the house. You have to go through the master bedroom to get to the third bedroom which was probably the hottest room in the house but there is an air-conditioner in there to help with that. My family was already planning the next trip back to this house while we were still on this trip, they loved it so much. :) We even had a few visitors during the week and it was nice that we had four parking spaces so our visitors had a place to park right in front of the house. We will definitely be back to the Casa Blanca house.

Casa Blanca week

  • 5 out of 5
We rented Casa Blanca for the week to celebrate our daughter's graduation at CSULB. It was perfect for our need. It has a washer/dryer, cozy kitchen, but enough room for cooking, 3 tables for eating, it's close to the beach & 2nd street. The beds were very comfortable. To access the 3rd room, you need to go through the master bedroom, but it was not an issue for our family. The owners are very accomodating. Plenty of towels, and plenty of space in the living room. A nice BBQ for barbequing, and a patio area, plus 4 parking spaces.

very tired vacation rental

  • 1 out of 5
the rental has a good location-- but that's where the good stops-- the furnishings in this rental are very well worn and dated-- this rental is equipped with lots of beds--bunkbeds--
the unit is not a true 3 bedroom as the only access to what is considered the third bedroom is only through the master bedroom--do not rent if you are couples and would like some privacy while you sleep-- the carpets are dirty and there was a strong odor upon entering the front door-- Landlord actually hosed down all outdoor patio space within hours of arrival making it impossible to sit and enjoy the beach view- don't understand that move. Over all this place is great if you are having a frat party weekend or a John Boy weekend. Owner states that he makes all aware of bedroom situation but
it is not mentioned in any ads only customer reviews.

Owner's Response: There is an old saying that 'No Good Deed Goes Unpunished'
!. We reduced the number of minimum nights from 3 to 2.
2. We Discounted the Rental Rate and allowed an early check in time. 3. Cut deposit in half.
3. This guests attempted to cancel 1 week prior to arrival...even VRBO requires 2 week notice for 'Special Offers'.
4. I received a call from 1 of the ladies wanting for me to explain 'the need to go thru the Master bedroom to the 3rd Bedroom?'
It seems that 'Sour Grapes' had already set in even prior to arrival
The furnishings are RETRO, not old, to go with the 30's construction.
(Even the ad states that we owned an antiques store and decorated according for comfort with many said antiques)
I explain in detail the need to 'Go Thru the Master Bedroom to the 3rd Bedroom' to EVERY prospective Guest I speak to along with the 'No Elevator' and explain in detail the Bunk Bed setup. (These Bunk Beds are the new 'Full Sized Queens/Singles' as advertised and have 12" mattress and will accommodate 2/1 normal sized adults comfortably.
Prior to our Guests reserving their dates...all of this is explained in detail as we don't want anyone being surprised.
Also like to point out that this guest not only looked at our pictures but also the Video Tour and was completely aware and accepting of the Bunk Beds and fact of the 3rd Bedroom off of the Master.
Seem like this Guest failed to explain to the others these facts resulting in the attempted cancellation and 'Sour Grapes'.
Oh Well!

Great Place for a Affordable Group Retreat at the Beach

  • 5 out of 5
Our volunteer community improvement association had a great two day retreat at the beach--made possible the affordable, comfortable accommodations of the Casa Blanca. 14 of us were comfortable (if cozy) on the 9 beds...and the large living room, dining room and decks fit our group meetings and meals just right. Casa Blanca's accommodation are just right for a volunteer group event--comfortable, cozy with a special California Art Deco character...but not so fancy that you don't feel comfortable piling onto the huge couches to all watch a corny film together...or filling the two dining tables for a big pancake breakfast. Highly recommend it for group retreats...and the host is very accommodating about last minute arrangements and the all the unexpected things that come with a volunteer group.

Great for our large group!

  • 5 out of 5
Nine family members aging 23 to 76 stayed at Casa Blanca in order to attend commencement exercises at CSULB. The accomodations fit our needs perfectly...plenty of beds, outside area where we could socialize, close to Long Beach and university, easy access to the beach, with parking for all our vehicles. We thoroughly enjoyed the deck which had numerous tables, chairs and lounge chairs and a lovely view of the pier. Our group took advantage of the close proximity to the beach and concrete walking trail as well as Von's, Belmont Brewing Company & Palapa restaurant. The elderly members were able to negotiate the 2 flights of stairs leading to the apartment if they took their time. Unbelievably for SoCal, there were 4 parking spots available to us! The mattresses were incredibly comfortable on ALL the the beds including the top bunks. The master bedroom is not very private since access to the third bedroom and one of the bathrooms is through the master bedroom. It was not a problem for our family but could be a concern if there were couples needing their own private bedroom. There were numerous fans (ceiling and portable) and good cross ventilation when windows and interior doors were open. We were very fortunate to have beautiful weather, but in case of rain the living room is spacious and could have easily fit our whole group on the comfy sectional and armchairs. The kitchen/breakfast nook area was compact but easily allowed 4-6 of us to make breakfast or lunch and then sit and eat. The dining room offered more eating space for 6 people. We did not have the pleasure of meeting the owners during our visit but they were very efficient and helpful setting up our reservation. We definitely recommend Casa Blanca for a relaxed, comfortable, convenient place to enjoy SoCal!

Great trip for LB Grand Prix Weekend

  • 4 out of 5
The house was just right for our group of friends who came to Long Beach for Grand Prix weekend. We had a total of nine people and the size of the house worked out just fine. The patio was nice to relax on during the mornings with a cup of coffee as well as in the evenings with a beer or glass of wine. Though some of us are from Long Beach and we know our way around, however for those not so familiar, if you fly into the Long Beach airport, a car is really not needed if you plan to only hang out in Long Beach. Belmont Shores is just a 10 mins or so walk away, the bike path is around the corner so you can walk down the beach, and the bus stop to catch the bus to head downtown is right outside the driveway ($1.25/person to ride the bus downtown). The furniture is eclectic but it boosted the mood since we were in town for a fun weekend. Also, the homeowners are very accommodating with reservations and payment plans, plus we received our full deposit back within the time promised. All nine of us do recommend this place to others looking for a fun stay in Long Beach.
