Beach Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect. Five minute walk to the beautiful beach across the street. Fifteen minute walk to restaurants. We loved the rooftop patios at night (spiral staircase access) and the four bikes in the garage. A few small issues with the house, but Susan was on top of everything and immediately responded to our needs. Wonderful getaway.

Beautiful, large home located very close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Very friendly owner/staff. Large 3 bedroom home accommodates 7 people. Close to town and very close to marina and an uncrowded portion of the beach. Great views from several balconies. Off-street parking for 2 cars. Lots of beach toys and chairs. A few minor maintenance issues: front door difficult to close, master bedroom door to balcony impossible to close. Many windows are stuck and non-functional. Minimal closet space and no dresser space in 2nd master bedroom. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

Loved the house - perfect for our stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home for a week of vacation in Seal Beach. We had four adults and two kids and everyone was very comfortable. There was plenty of space, the house was clean and had all the amenities we needed.

Our only recommendation would be to supply a couple more box fans. Without the air conditioning it takes a lot of wind to keep the air flowing through such a big house, and we only had one box fan to use. If each room had one that'd make it perfect - but really, no real complaints here. We'd definitely be back!

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review and for taking such great care of the home during your stay. I hope you will return in the future. Thank you for the help suggestion- box fans are on their way!

Fantastic stay at California Dreamin'

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect house for two families to share. The two master bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms were great for the adults. And our kids loved their bedroom with the upstairs loft and separate bath. The kitchen had everything we needed and we grilled and cooked almost every night. This home also has everything you need for the beach, which is right up the street. Thanks so much for a week of great memories! We hope to be back.
