Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Belmont Shore

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Searching for a vacation home near the beach and close to all the action? Well.....you have found the place! This 1-bedroom apartment is on the 2nd floor of a Spanish Mission style triplex. It was recently remodeled and elegantly furnished with a touch of the exotic Far East.

Parking is a premium in Belmont Shore and there is 1 space reserved for you behind the building. A car is recommended to fully enjoy the surrounding areas. But, if you are going to downtown Long Beach, the Convention Center or the hotels on Ocean Blvd., you can take the bus just a block away.

The home is located at the western end of Belmont Shore. It is about 3 miles to downtown Long Beach and the Convention Center. The beach is only 3 blocks away. Shops, restaurants, and other amenities are within walking distance. Easy access to the freeways makes this area a convenient base for visiting the attractions of Los Angeles and Orange County. The Long Beach Airport is 5 miles away and LAX is about 20 miles.

Activities abound for both the young and not so young. Try your skills at kite flying or kayaking; go for a bike ride at the beach; take a romantic gondola ride through Naples' canals; go antique shopping; or simply 'people watch' on 2nd St. For the discerning visitor to Southern California, stay and play in Belmont Shore, a friendly and exciting beach community of Long Beach.

Why The Owner chose Belmont Shore

This 'retreat' was one of 3 regular rental apartments. In August 2011, we decided to fully furnish it and convert it into a short term rental due to the popular demand in the Belmont Shore area.

What makes this apartment unique

Walking distance to the beach, shops & restaurants. A fun people watching area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This incredible Retreat has all the special things that makes a retreat a retreat. Colleen, your impeccable taste with interior design has not gone unnoticed - perfecto! Moreno & I truly enjoyed our time here - relaxed, quiet and non disturbing neighbors. We hope to be back with more renewed energy. Thank you.

Wonderful Cozy Hideaway!

  • 5 out of 5
Beautifully appointed apartment with plenty of room for the two of us. The owners, Al and Colleen, made us feel at ease right from the start. We happened to stay on one of the hottest weekends for the whole summer (98º) and was glad that the a/c worked well! The bed was very comfortable with lots of pillows so you could prop yourself up at any angle. Very inviting living room with cozy couch and day bed. We spent most of our time in this room as we had some work to do and we could spread out on the coffee table. Nice full sized kitchen with everything that you could ask for (but we didn't cook anything). We actually didn't stay long enough to cook anything except make coffee in the morning. Loved the double lavs in the bath. And nice and fluffy towels too! Love to walk down 2nd street which is 1/2 block away. You can walk to a plethora of restaurants and shopping. We've visited many times to this area and have only tried a small sampling of all the places to eat. We would definitely stay here again! We would also recommend this beautiful property to our friends. A super nice get-away!

Amazing Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
I just got home from my vacation in Long Beach having stayed at An Elegant Retreat in Belmont Shore....This apartment is stunning and wonderful in every single way....It is clean, spotless really...It is cozy and beautiful...the bed was super comfy, the kitchen had everything...it is really large and honestly the pictures do not do it justice.....Colleen does not miss a thing...There is nothing that you will want or need when you stay here....The location is perfect. It is almost right on Second Street but located just far away so that you don't hear all the fun people are having when its time for you to go to sleep....I did not want to leave and I would absolutely stay here again....Wonderful experience.

Fabulous Vacation Home

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I stayed at this unit for about 3 weeks and we absolutely loved it. This unit is completely remodeled, with new furniture and appliances. The bed is very comfortable and there are extra pillows to choose from in the spacious closet. My wife and I love the extra soft pillows that this unit provided. We thought the unit was very spacious for two people, the living room is quite inviting and everything is decorated professionally with quality products. The location is also very quite and desirable to live in. We loved the fact that it was walking distance to the beach as well as convenient to everything else. We explore numerous restaurants, coffee shops, clothing shops and sports bars within walking distance to the unit. Also the owner of this unit is a very friendly and polite lady along with her husband. We recommend this unit to any couple or family that wants to get away from home for a small vacation in pleasant city.

A glimpse of life in Belmont Shores

  • 5 out of 5
My brother and his family live in the same building as this one-bedroom rental so it seemed like a great idea for us to get out of their hair - and off the air mattress - to rent the apartment above them. We were the first to stay at the newly transformed apartment.
It was beautifully decorated, luxuriously comfortable and so convenient to all of the fun that Belmont Shores has to offer (you never have to leave the area!). It's walking distance to great restaurants, bars and shopping. Not to mention the beach is four blocks away! The ocean breeze blows in through the windows so the apartment never gets too warm. The apartment would be great for long stays since the kitchen has everything you would need and there's lots of closet space for people who like to spread out.
Our only issue was that there wasn't any wifi but Colleen said they were still in the process of getting it hooked up so that shouldn't be a problem for anyone after us.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat, it's well worth the nightly rate to be in such a great area. Staying here we could pretend we lived such a laid back lifestyle, if only we never had to go home!

Owner's Response: One of our computer savvy tenants informed us that we had the wrong password and so now the wi-fi is working.
