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 World

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

Gorgeous little bungalow

  • 4 of 5

This bungalow is everything that you see in the photos, clean, neat and just what you need for a holiday.

The outside area needed to be cleaned/swept. We couldn't have sat outside without cleaning up.

We did have a couple of little issues with the key for the gate and the plug for the kitchen sink, but email/text to Ferrara and all was sorted very quickly.

My only concern would be that the curtains in all bedrooms/living areas need to be "block out". The neighbours keep the external lights on & these shine through the main bedroom & the trundle bed room (facing the street) are sheer - not good to get undress. The upstairs attic bedroom was fine.

We loved the spice rack and basics left in the cupboard.

The kitchen was well equipped with quality appliances.

We all agreed that the pillows need to be 'improved' - they were like sleeping on a pillow case :(

The neighbourhood is fantastic and restaurants are near by. Close to the beach

The best shopping for groceries is Ralphs - corner of 4th & Temple. Great variety of goods and great selection of fresh vegetables.

We loved that we could cook our own meals and wash clothes as needed. It was central to LA/Hollywood and Disneyland and Outlet shopping

A great fit for our needs!

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was great for our family on our vacation to the Long Beach. This house was a great fit for our family with 5 kids ranging from 14 down to 1 year old.I was grateful there were gates, because with a 1 year old I was always worried about her going upstairs. My daughter loved the outdoor patio area, I was very grateful for the parking spots for 2 cars. The street parking was always full! Close to the beach (we were not too picky about a specific beach, so it was fun to go several times just a couple minutes away. Loved having the washer/dryer. Very quaint house.

Beautiful home in a stellar location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two nights while in town for a wedding. The location is perfect - close to the beach, restaurants and shops. The house is adorable, with plenty of space to relax.

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!
