The bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub, the kitchen is a full kitchen with a stove, oven, microwave, washer/dryer, dishwasher, and a large refrigerator. There is a back patio to relax, BBQ, and a front patio to watch the sunset. The furniture adds a warmth to the house in a contemporary beachy style.

The kitchen is fully equipped including a coffee maker, eating utensils, plates, cups, cooking pans, utensils, etc. There is a computer with access to the internet, a flat screen TV.

The house has lots of parking for one-two cars or RV or boat. The back patio is large enough for your dog to roam, to have BBQ's under the shade of the table with umbrella.

This house is a short walk to the beach

Long Beach offers an amazing array of art galleries and museums, cafes and restaurants, unique shops, nightlife, theater, history, boating and every water activity. There is truly something for everyone in Southern California's most affordable beach town.

About Ferrara DiCenso

Love Long Beach for its diversity and small town feel. Belmont Shore is lots of fun, lots of great restaurants and shops. Naples Island is fun to see, always decorated for Christmas. Very romantic to go on Gondola Getaway to travel down the canals, almost like Venice, Italy! Downtown Long Beach has the Queen Mary and the Aquarium and has a great night life. Lots of places for dancing the night away!!

Ferrara DiCenso purchased this house in 2006

Why Ferrara DiCenso chose Long Beach

I have always wanted to own a bungalow style house. I love the old traditional feel to it with the convenience of all of the up-grades. It feels good to walk barefoot on the wood floors, touch the crystal door knobs, have lots of cupboard space, and open up the French doors to the back porch to let all of the fresh warm summer air in.

What makes this house unique

It is great to be central to everything in Long Beach. Walking to the beach to swim, kite surf, bike ride; or taking a walk through Belmont Shore to enjoy all of the great restaurants and shops; or going to Naples Island to kayak around the canals or for a special date go on the gondola through the canals to be sung to in Italian; or going to the Art District to watch a movie at the Art Theatre or go antique shopping, or eat at one of the more alternative restaurants; or to go downtown to visit the Queen Mary, Long Beach's Aquarium, and the Pike, it's all fabulous, so much to do and see! Plus Long Beach hosts the Grand Prix and the Long Beach Marathon

Beautiful and comfortable home with everything you need and more!

  • 5 of 5

Ferrera's home is every person's dream- even more beautiful and bigger than you anticipate! The house is meticulously designed so you feel like you're in a magazine without feeling cold. There's a large driveway for parking which is super helpful in this busy neighborhood, and also a spacious back patio area. It's very quiet at night, which is perfect for resting. There are literally over a thousand channels available via cable to watch or play music! The house has everything you need to have a great vacation and home away from home. I would recommend anyone looking to get away from anywhere to stay at this house - you won't regret it!

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

The home is just like what you see in the pictures, not the video. The video has different furniture than what is actually in the house. The house is well maintained, clean, and organized. As for the patio furniture, there was only one bench we could really sit on with cushions because the other cushions were wet & dirty, but that didn't stop us from sitting outside. We just couldn't use the cushions.

We had a situation with the smoke detectors, but the owner responded quickly, and was able to fix the problem in no time.

If you are looking to stay here, it's a wonderful family home and is in the perfect location. It's basically walking distance to just about everything.

We did have one annoyance with our stay here, but it wasn't at the fault of the owner. There was something underneath the house that kept us from sleeping the first night because it was scratching and banging on the walls. The owner has been notified and hopefully this won't happen for any other guests in the future. This situation could have been this one and only occurrence.

Again, this is a beautiful home, perfect location, and worth your stay.

Beautiful bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this adorable bungalow. It was walking distance to the beach and many restaurants and coffee shops. The home was charming with many original features while still being fresh and updated with a newer kitchen, A/C and washer and dryer. There is a nice back deck with furniture to relax and enjoy the great weather. We would stay her again.

Sweet bungalow

  • 5 of 5

I spent 3 days at this lovely bungalow house with another adult and 3 teenagers. It was very close to perfect. Clean, well appointed in a safe residential neighborhood, only 3 blocks from the beach. We loved the back yard patio. The only downside for us (which was not hidden) was the fact that there is only one bathroom -- this was a bit tight with three teenage girls. But really -- this is a very nice house in a great location. Who knew Long Beach had so much to offer? Great shopping, restaurants, bikes to rent, and of course the beach. I would recommend this place and would come back.

Very good house near the beach in Long Beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 12 days this July.

Upon our arrival we found everything OK and as pictured and described.

We could not find a special key and we were readily assisted by Ferrara who taught me where to find it.

The rest of the stay was very pleasant and we had a very good time!

The only cons was that both pans needed to be cleaned thoroughly, before using them. May be a change of its material could be a good idea!

On the whole very good.
