Remodeled throughout! This Shabby Chic Beach Cottage is just a few short steps to the sand in a desirable area. Enjoy 2 entirely different beaches within steps from the cottage. The Pacific Ocean beach with ever changing views of ships coming into ports, dolphins, pelicans, etc. Or, relax at the more calm Bay beach,just across the street, great for the kids. The Peninsula is a little known gem of and area, that has some of the few beach front homes where you step onto the sand just over the board walk from your front door. The neighborhood is a quiet, friendly neighborhood located walking distance to shops and restaurants, kayak, SUP, and sailboat classes and rentals, as well as a childrens playgound, beach cafe on the sand, basketball, racquetball/handball and roller hockey courts. Just across the street from here is a hotspot for kite surfing. If you don't want to join in, you can sit back and watch!
I know you are going to love our beautiful guest house located on the Pacific Ocean. It's the perfect get away at the beach! Grab your glass of wine and enjoy watching the ships come to port, pelicans, dolphins, and sunsets. Life is wonderful when you are at the beach! We look forward to having you here as our guests!

I have always stayed in the Belmont Shore area but couldn't find a 4 bedroom house so I took a chance on this house located on the Peninsula. I liked the location and would definitely rent there again. The area is quite and an easy 20 minute walk to Belmont Shore. The house is very roomy and has a great deal of charm. We also rented the bedroom cottage behind the house and found both places to be very comfortable. The pictures are accurate and the view of the water from the house, beautiful. The owner and rental manager were very helpful and quickly returned phone calls. The only amenity missing is a washer and dryer. I would definitely recommend this house and location as a rental.

Stayed 3 nights here, and had a lovely stay. Got in late the first night--no problem for friendly Joanne, the owner, who left the place unlocked and ready for us (she lives right next door). As pictures reveal, the place is decorated in lacy Victorian style--I don't think I could live in such a flouncy environment, but it was fun to visit. The flat was immaculate. It has a large living area, well-appointed (small) kitchen, great bathroom (with tub), and a separate bedroom. The neighborhood is VERY quiet, with the surf being the only real noise. The beach is just a few feet away; walking distance to the cute Peninsula Cafe (serves breakfast and lunch, with the occasional dinner); laundromat and mini-market 2 blocks away. A short drive to Queen Mary and the USS Iowa (both worth the time to tour). Good ethnic restaurants within a mile. Would highly recommend this cottage!
A lovely little cottage on the beach (in between the ocean and the bay.) Bike riding on the boardwalk alongside the ocean was most pleasant. Parking can be a challenge in the area. We very much enjoyed our stay.
Everything from booking to arrival to speedy return of security deposit was flawless. Joann and Carlos are gracious hosts. The location is wonderful and so easily accessible to freeways. Our commutes for family celebrations in Orange County were within 20-30 minutes. The cottage is so cute, clean, comfy and has everything you need for a weekend or an extended stay (which we are considering returning for!!). Daily strolls down to restaurants and shops; evening walks on the beach that is just a few steps away and then fall asleep listening to the ocean...what more can you want? Were there over Memorial Day weekend and had no problems finding parking within a block or two every time if there was no room directly in front of the cottage. Like the title of our review says, we can't wait to come back!
My husband and I rented this cottage for a much needed vacation and to visit our daughter who had recently relocated to LA. Rental was exactly as advertised, spotlessly clean, comfortable thick mattresses, spotless kitchen. Perfect in every way! We will back again and again!
This was an excellent place; very comfortable with a lot of charm; only negative is parking can be a problem.
5 minute walk to stand up paddle board (SUP) rentals, kayak rentals, Gondola ride through Naples Canals, sail boat rentals, kite surfing.
15 minute walk to Belmont Shores 2nd Street shops, restaurants, and night life.
Long Beach offers 5 public golf course, several swap meets and farmers markets, several antique shops and a antique swap meet once a month, Aquarium of the Pacific, Water taxi, Harbor cruise, 2 museums
During the summer, there are free weekly movies on the beach, free concerts in the park as well as free concerts on the Peninsula.
Especially fun is the 4th of July: Fireworks at the Queen Mary (for up close and personal) or sit on the beach and watch them from just outside your front door!
