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

Very clean and spacious property in an eclectic neighbourhood.

  • 4 of 5

The common areas at this house are very spacious and airy. The kitchen is great and has extras like a blender. The deck in the back is perfect for relaxing. The attic bedroom has a very comfortable king bed but stairs can be a challenge for some - they are a bit steep. Also, to get to the attic bedroom you do have to go through the bedroom with the day bed. Not an issue for us but could be for some. The mattress on the day bed was also very good. The only issue I could think of is the neighbour keeps his outside lights on all night. So if you need total darkness to sleep, bring a mask or get dibs on the attic bedroom.

The parking space is fantastic bonus. Just keep in mind that you are in a city and the driveway though long is a bit narrow. The convention center a mere $5 uber ride away.

Ferrara was very quick with her response time. It was a pleasure dealing with her.

If I find myself in Long Beach again, I would definitely rent this property again!

Beautiful home

Amazing home but none of the bedrooms have curtains which makes it very hard to sleep.

Owner's Response: I am sorry about the curtains. They were being cleaned and must have not been put up before your arrival. I am very sorry about this.

Bugs in bed/mouse droppings

  • 1 of 5

The day bed in the quasi third bedroom had bugs in the seams, not just a few but a lot. When we pulled out the bottom mattress there were mouse droppings on the bottom mattress. There were also mouse droppings on the stairs going up to the attic bedroom. We contacted the owner who sent out a young man who had a garden store bottle of spray who then contacted the owner and said an exterminator was needed. in the meantime my husband and son moved the day bed outside to ensure the bugs did not spread. The next day an exterminator was supposed to show up (they may have but we weren't there all day) all we could see was that someone had mopped the floor where the daybed had been. The daybed was still outside in the alley. The mouse droppings were not cleaned up and were still in the upstairs bedroom.

The owner was very apologetic yet offered no compensation or offer to provide different accommodations. Nor did she give any additional feedback as to what the exterminator found or what the bugs were. The lack of follow through after the exterminator visit was unprofessional.

The house is cute, the on site parking and the kitchen supplies were all great. The washing machine is loud and seems unbalanced. The back yard is unkempt and needs a good cleaning. The porch is delightful and has a canopy with lights which made sitting on the porch enjoyable. The location is ideal with shopping and the beach close by. It was also within blocks of where our son lives making it an even better location.

With all the good, it is diappointing that the owners follow through with an explanation of what was found, and failure to clean up the mouse droppings after being advised it was there makes this a terrible experience. My family and I will be visiting this area frequently and will, obviously, never rent this house again.
