About Tom Stearns
A native of Southern Calfornia, I like to spend as much time as possible in Long Beach. My condo is a very special little corner of Long Beach. I can help with planning visits to nearby areas of interest including San Diego, Santa Barbara, Palm Springs and Las Vegas. I grew up in the Long Beach area and I am familiar with all of Los Angeles. Some of my favorite places in Long Beach include: -walking my dog in Rainbow Harbor -exploring Belmont Shore -nighttime dinner or drinks on Pine Street -take in a movie at the newly renovated Pike Theaters In the middle of it all, however, secluded and relaxing, it offers the best of...everything!
Tom Stearns purchased this Condo in 2009

Pool / Spa
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
The condo provided everything we needed and more. The kitchen was so well equipped that I wanted for nothing when cooking elaborate Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Tom clearly takes pride in the condo; it is appealing, very clean and well cared for. The building amenities were amazing - beautiful pool area, hot tub, sauna, grills, outdoor fireplaces, and billiards. The condo is located in downtown Long Beach. The building is very secure. Tom was a helpful, responsive and patient host. Five stars.
Best Location, best building, best owner!
I recently stayed at Tom’s West Ocean Towers condo on business. Everything was top notch.
I could walk to the office and the many restaurants & stores in the surrounding area.
I’m hoping my company has me again on a lengthy stay in Long Beach. I loved everything about it!!
This was by far the best experience I had while in a holiday. Tom is one great guy and words can’t describe how helpful he was in everything we needed . The cleanest , the safest , the best placed condo we could possibly find . Thank you for everything TOM and I hope to be back soon.
Amazing location, apartment, and host!
The apartment is beautiful and in a great location; walkable to The Pike and Pine Street. The apartment staff are very friendly and accommodating to ensure ease of living. Tom is also a very attentive and responsive host. We definitely recommend this gem to anyone and would love to come back!
Clean, Quiet & Comfortable!
I frequently come to Long Beach on business. This is a great location. This is by far the best vacation rental I have stayed. The owner pays attention to many details and I look forward to returning when in the Long Beach area. 5 stars!!
We absolutely loved Tom's Long Beach rental. The place is comfortable, in good taste and every detail taken into consideration.The owner is extremely easy to communicate with and responded immediately. We will stay here again when visiting our family inLong Beach, CA.
A favorite sea-worthy attraction is the city's Aqua Bus, a 40-foot water taxi that serves the city's main attractions, such as the Queen Mary and Aquarium of the Pacific. The city also sponsors AquaLink, a high-speed 60 foot catamaran that offers service to nearby Alamitos Bay,
which has marinas, restaurants and water sports.
There are several options for getting on the water at a cost, like Whale Watching, Dinner Cruises, Sport Fishing, Private Cruises, Harbor Cruises, a Murder Mystery Cruise
and Boat Rentals.
Some bars & restaurants within walking distance from the condo..(but not limited to!) include:
California Pizza Kitchen,
The Dueling Pianos,
George's Greek Cafe,
Savilla Spanish Cusine,
and Buno's Italian Restaurant.
Grocery shopping is located in the recently remodeled Von's Supermarket on Atlantic Blvd also downtown 4 blocks away just off Ocean Blvd.
The famous Queen Mary is a hearty walk although I suggest driving. Two other places of interest easiest by car are both the Maya Hotel and the Reef Restaurant.
The new 'Outlets at the Pike' are leasing 330,000 sq feet of retail space. Currently, the Restoration Hardware outlet, H & M, Nike, Gap, Columbia, Forever 21, a Starbucks and a variety of others coming soon.
Successful Long Beach shopping areas include the Promenade (located within walking from the condo), Belmont Shore, Retro Row, and the Arts District (also walkable from the condo).
The Long Beach Grand Prix consumes Downtown LB for a long weekend in April.
Other downtown LB activities include: the Zombie Walk, Pride and the world series of Volleyball each year.
This Long Beach Vacation Rental is perfect for vacation or business, blending perfect design, location and affordability.
