Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Long Beach - Bay Shore

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Come enjoy this well-appointed 3,100+ sq foot two-story home located on the water over looking Alamitos Bay in Belmont Shore. Belmont Shore is a quaint seaside village with numerous shops, restaurants and entertainment within easy walking distance. This home allows the renter to truly enjoy the Southern California coast with all it has to offer.

The home boasts water views, gourmet kitchen with all amenities, breakfast nook that seats six, large common spaces; living and family rooms. The master suite features a private lanai and bath that includes a separate shower and tub. One of the guest rooms includes a bay window seat with panoramic marina views. The four bedrooms are on the second floor and include the following: Master bedroom - King bed, Guest room #2 - Queen bed, Guest room #3 - Queen bed plus single day bed with additional pull out single trundle, Guest room #4 - Two single beds with additional pull out single trundle. All beds are new with comfortable mattresses and luxurious bedding.

Located on the water, this bright two-story luxury home is a perfect vacation get-away for families or a grown ups weekend. This home is beautifully laid out to provide a sense of privacy and space. The formal dining area comfortably seats 12 people. Living room with gas fireplace is the perfect place to relax with a book. The family room is complete with wet bar and is a wonderful area for entertaining. Large French doors open up to the private backyard with gas BBQ, patio and Jacuzzi area.

Amenities include flat screen TVs, iPod doc, wireless Internet and a fully equipped office area with unlimited calling within the U.S., PC, and scan/copy capabilities. This home provides the perfect environment for enjoying California's amazing ocean, weather and sun.

Because the home is located on the Alamitos Bay the private dock offers private access to the water for kayaking, paddle boards, swimming, and/or just sunning. It is also a short walk (8 houses) to wonderful restaurants, shops, cafes, and the bay side beach.

Belmont Shore is a very pet friendly area. Dogs (sorry no cats due to allergies) are very welcome in the home.

For those of you coming into town for a meeting at the Long Beach Convention Center, the home is approximately three miles from the Convention Center and downtown Long Beach. The small transit bus called the Passport (see link below) is a convenient and inexpensive way to get to and from the Convention Center, as well as the the Long Beach Grand Prix, the Aquarium of the Pacific, the Queen Mary and other local attractions. There is also a water taxi available on the same system should you prefer to enjoy the sights from another perspective. And of course Disneyland is only a 25 minute drive away.

About Pamela Paterson

The owners have been connected to Belmont Shore for over 20 years. They enjoy nothing more than to get away to the 'Shore.'

Why Pamela Paterson chose Long Beach

We purchased this home as a vacation home to supplement our beach and boating lifestyle. This is our dream to own a home in Belmont Shore giving our boat and our spare time a permanent place to play. We are happy to share it.

What makes this house unique

The family enjoys kayaking, bicycling, going around Naples Island on paddle boards and just cruising the 'Shore'. The one thing we love about our home is that we can go there - park the car - and not drive for an entire weekend. Everything we could possibly need is within walking distance. When you live in the Los Angeles area, any time you can take the opportunity to not drive is wonderful. We also love that it is only 25 minutes to Disneyland.

Belmont Shore Waterfront Vacation Home 1/2 Block to 2nd St Fun
average rating of 5.0 based on 30 reviews


  • 5 of 5

From the day we requested rental information Pamela answered all questions very quickly. We have been using vacation rentals for many years all over the world and I must say this one was the best equipped with everything we could possibly need including a well-stocked kitchen, kayaks, paddleboards, bikes and a hot tub. Our group ranged in age form 7 to 70 and there was room and fun for everyone. It was spotless, had comfortable beds and right across the street from the bay where we could paddleboard. 2nd Street restaurants 'and shops are a short walk and we did this often. There is a good selection of restaurants and everything we needed was convenient. There were many games and toys for kids and WII games and a foosball table. It is a perfect spot for a multi-generation vacation. Thanks Pamela for all you did to make our stay so perfect!!!

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at your home during a business conference and we were pleasantly pleased with everything the house had to offer. Our team of ten people fit comfortably. The house was big enough that when we were all home there was still plenty of room to hang out without being on top of each other. The house was equipped with all the necessities including multiple phone chargers and almost anything else you would need! 2nd street's restaurants and shopping was within walking distance and the views of the water ways and boats was charming. The property was clean and quiet and had great character. The beds were comfortable and the showers had plenty of hot water!

Pamela was pleasant and responded quickly to my questions and was extremely flexible and accommodating.

I would highly recommend this property to family and friends and look forward to staying there again.

So much Aloha

  • 5 of 5

Overall, we had a wonderful time staying at this house, it was indeed filled with a lot of Aloha. The entire group enjoyed the stay and all that the house had to offer. The house was very spacious making it extremely comfortable for everyone sleeping wise. We were pleased with the outdoor patio and grill which were perfect to use because of the great weather in the area. The foosball table and Wii were also a great hit with everyone providing lots of laughter being played throughout the entire trip. The owners of the property were always available if questions arise. Sadly, we weren't able to use any of the swimming/ocean equipment, but it was definitely awesome to have them as an option. If we ever wanted to stay in Long Beach again, your house would definitely be on the top of our list.

Beautiful Water View Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful, comfortable, well-stocked home over the long Christmas holiday. The Belmont Shore location and lovely water views are just perfect for a family vacation. This spacious home had everything you could possibly need for a fun, relaxing stay. I know, so many vacation rentals advertise this, but this particular one actually delivers! We were all so impressed. The beds were comfortable with nice linens, which can be very hard to find. We made full use of the back patio as well as the front patio with fire pit, enjoying the water views while visiting with family and friends. On top of all this, the owners were thoughtful, considerate and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend this home. As for us, we will be back!
