Why Owner chose Seal Beach

Great place to stay either on business or vacation. Close to freeways and attractions but yet a world away as you

walk long the beach or enjoys the sunrise and sunset on

one of the 3 balconies!

What makes this house unique

Quaint, family friendly seaside town where you can shop and dine on Main Street, stroll the Seal Beach pier and

walk barefoot along the seashore without getting in your car!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful vacation at a beautiful home at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this home several times and intend to return soon. My husband grew up in Seal Beach so we come and stay at "California Dreaming" a couple of times each year. The house is very spacious, comfortable, and is more beautiful than the pictures.

The kitchen has everything I have ever needed including cake pans, cookie sheets, crockpot, measuring cups, etc. They have just replaced the BarBQue grill with a new propane grill, which is much more convenient.

In the garage they have beach chairs, boogie boards, sand toys for the kids.

Since we fly in from another state having all of this available enhances our trip.

It is a quick walk across the street to the beach, and an eight block walk to the pier and Main Street. On this trip our rental car didn't leave the garage.

Susan is very easy to work with and responsive to our needs.

The sunsets from the rooftop deck are stunning.

If you stay at this home you will not be disappointed.

Thank you Susan for a great stay.

The house is perfect and very comfortable, Jessica the housekeeper made sure everything was good for our stay. Our family has rented California Dreamin before, we have family that live just around the corner, so this is home for us. Susan, the pancake surprise gift left on the table and the fruit/granola bars were a hit, that special touch gives that home feel.

Susan made sure that everything is in working order, the light bulbs were burnt out in the stairwell, Susan was on it, the next thing Jessica was right there replacing bulbs...thanks...now we see the light!! Well stocked kitchen plenty of cookware, serving and dinnerware. The dine in kitchen with TV is perfect for our families relaxed style. Nice linens/towels and comfy beds. Yeah, for the floor fans, we had some hot days! The furniture is quite comfortable and the Piano a plus!! Plenty of beach chairs, toys, boogie boards, towels for your beach time.

The layout of the house is perfect with 2 private master suites and two 3rd floor decks, you definitely can get in some quiet time with views of the Ocean and Marina. The kids loft room is a plus so they can have their own space and bathroom. Seal Beach is a perfect small beach town for walking or riding bikes. Rivers End Restaurant a old surf shack is across the street, walk a few blocks on Ocean Ave to Main St for shopping, dinning, the kids park on the sand and of course the iconic Seal Beach Pier. Oh, don't forget your nightly walk back to Ocean & Main for your Cold Stone Ice Cream!

California Dreamin is 30 minutes from Disneyland or Knotts Berry Farm across the bay from the Queen Mary (you can see it from the 3rd deck), Aquarium of the Pacific Long Beach.

We highly recommend California Dreamin for your vacation or work stay. You will not be disappointed, once you are there you will find your way settle in and enjoy your stay!!

Thank you again Susan, you are the kindest and most welcoming person.

Talk to you again,

Linda and John Morrison

and Family

Dream House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a six night stay at this beautiful home. The home is much larger and more beautiful than we had expected. We enjoyed all three of the roof top balconies and especially enjoyed the patio right outside the informal dining room. This patio has the most beautiful water fountain and tons of plants and even the occasional humming bird. Even the entrance to the home has its own water fountain and an assortment of plants The kitchen is fully stocked with all the cookware to make a delicious dinner. The bathrooms are spacious and plenty. We had three bathrooms to choose from on the second floor and a half bath on the first. If you have children you will be thrilled with the childrens bedroom. This bedroom features a loft with stuffed animals and lots of childrens games. The beach is right across the street and the neighborhood makes for a gorgeous evening walk among the palms. I could go on forever about this beautiful home. We will visit again.

A Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

California Dreamin' was a perfect place for our family to stay during our 5 day vacation at Seal Beach! We come to Seal Beach every year to visit family and we usually stay in a hotel, but as our family has grown, we decided it might be nice to stay in a home where we could have some have some more extended and leisurely family times. We had three family groups to accommodate and the three bedrooms were more than adequate in terms of space and privacy. I'm an early bird so before everyone was up every morning, I could perch on one of the decks that overlooked the ocean and listen to the waves coming in and the birds chirping. The kitchen is wonderful to cook in as it has a Viking commercial stove and plenty of cooking pans and dishes. There were games for the kids to play inside and sand toys galore for our one block walk to beach time. Stores and restaurants were also only a few blocks away which meant we hardly got in the car at all, and for my husband, that defines a great vacation! The owner was super efficient in getting back with us in terms of requests and questions and she even had a beautiful bowl of fruits and snacks waiting for us when we arrived. I would highly recommend this property and we will be coming back as often as possible!

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of six stayed at this spacious house. It's in a great location with easy access to beach and restaurants and was a perfect fit for adults and our four teenagers. We look forward to returning soon. Susan was quick to respond to my questions and great to work with.
