Beautiful home with comfy beds!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful and clean. Great location. I was worried about the lack of air conditioning because it was hot when we arrived. After opening the bedroom windows and turning on the fans that were provided, it cooled down quickly. We spent most of our time seeing the sights and only came back to sleep. The beds were so comfortable!

Absolutely lovely! Would definitely stay here again!

When we arrived, Lyndee was there to greet us and give us a tour of the property. It was beautiful and smelled like oak wood inside the home- you can tell it was original wood. Added to the beauty of the property! My husband and I stayed in the room with the king bed overlooking the beautiful tree that’s over 100 years old! That bed was super comfortable and the sheets and comforter were too! We headed out and were so happy to literally be two blocks always from the beach! We had to dip our toes! Water felt great! Spend the night out in Downtown, Long Beach which was a 10 min drive (we took Uber and it was a $7 Car ride- much better than a DUI) came back to the house, settled in and checked out in the morning. Showers worked, bathrooms had enough supplies. Such a beautiful home. I’ll definitely return when we want to visit Long Beach.

Nice vacation rental!

  • 4 of 5

Quiet , elegant 1912 Craftsman style house furnished with period pieces. Parking in front of the house is tight at night but parking was always found around corner. Streets in that area are huge. Very close to beach but far enough from more heavily traveled streets to be low noise. Worked well with a 8 month baby and 3 year old. The portable crib we borrowed ( from friends ) was moldy and we used the big drawer from a built-in linen closet upstairs as a bed for the 8 month old. There were plenty of extra blankets that worked as a mattress.
