Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Waterfront - Aqua Over 40 Helpful Reviews!!

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Our condo is our 2nd home and we love it! It is professionally decorated with fine furnishings, and you will feel right at home! Our condo has vaulted ceilings which gives the condo a feel of comfortable spaciousness. There are ceiling fans in both bedrooms along with central air. Both bedrooms have Queen size beds with 800 thread count linens, which our guest love to rave about!

Our master bedroom has it's own private balcony/bar which overlooks the grand fountains of the Performing Art Center. Every day at dusk the fountains put on a wonderful show of color,..this is another thing that our guests love to comment on. Both bathrooms have oversized oval Grecian tubs surrounded by marble, which makes it so inviting and relaxing! Our big screen plasma T.V. is great to kick back and watch while enjoying the views of the ocean and the city. We have 4 bicycles parked in our garage for our guests to use, and there are wonderful bike paths along the beach!

Our kitchen is large and has a big granite topped island. We even won a contest and had one of the 'Top Chefs' perform and prepare in our kitchen!! It is completely stocked with everything! We have extra linens ,towels, hair dryers, and and iron. We have 8 white plush robes to lounge in, and complimentary champagne or sparkling cider ready to greet you upon arrival! Our favorite review from one of our many guests is.. 'our grandchildren loved your condo,. they call it THE CASTLE IN THE SKY'!

About Janis Ostlund

Hi, my name is Janis Ostlund and I love Long Beach! I have been a licensed real estate agent for over 15 years and I watched this High Rise being built. I knew it was going to be fantastic, and I bid on the unit I wanted and was lucky enough to capture the bid for one of the most coveted corner units in both of the High Rise Towers. I live in Costa Mesa, which is only a 20 minute drive from Long Beach, which makes it very convenient. When the condo is not rented, I love to be here!!

Janis Ostlund purchased this condo in 2006

Why Janis Ostlund chose Long Beach

I grew up in a very small farm town in Iowa, and I always promised myself I was going to have property that had an ocean view,... but I always wanted to live in a big city too.... with this property I have both!!! It truly is incredible!!

What makes this condo unique

There are so many benefits to staying in our condo. The most obvious is how close everything is! You really don't need a car! The Aquarium of the Pacific as well as the Queen Mary are just 5 minutes away, 2 blocks away there are 3 blocks of nothing but restaurants and nightlife. WE have 4 bicycles parked in our garage, and to rent one bike can cost you $25.00 an hour,.. you and yours can cruise the beautiful bike paths on the beach all day for free!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Janis and Tim

What a wonderful place to stay in my "home away from home" during this week. Your condo is beautifully furnished, comfortable and so convenient to everything in Long Beach. I so much enjoyed the beautiful views the walks on the beach with my little dog, and trying so many restaurants. One evening the sunset was so awesome from your balcony I posted the picture on Facebook!

Thank you for sharing your home...

I hope to come back soon!

Warm regards

Grat Location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of 5 to stay while attending an event at the convention center. We loved that we could go almost anywhere by foot! The condo is a great size, and the views are nice. Janis was so easy to communicate with, and they were very accommodating to our family! We will definitely be back. Thank you Janis!!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this condo for 1 week in August 2016 with my friend and our two girls while they attended a dance convention and we could not have been more delighted with the accommodation!!!

The place was as lovely as the description on the website and having a kitchen and laundry available for the week was just what we needed. The location was super convenient to where they needed to be as well as close to great restaurants. The addition of list of recommendations and a basket of brochures on the area was a pleasant treat.

We would highly recommend this place and will hope to stay there the next time our girls are dancing nearby. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality!

Very happy with our choice

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed with her son and her stepdaughter. We attended the Ellen show in Burbank, we did a tour of Los Angeles and area starting with Santa Monica. It was my friends sons 17th birthday the day of Ellen so when we returned we went down to the beach and ate "cake by the ocean" One day we spent driving down the coast and stopped wherever we could to enjoy the views and spent time in Huntington Beach. We thought Long Beach was an excellent location for getting places, despite the rush hour traffic. We enjoyed our stay in your condo and will definitely look to rent VRBO in the future. This was an excellent experience.

Perfect location for convention stay

  • 5 of 5

This condo worked out great for my colleagues and I during the convention we attended. It was a super quick walk, and was so much nicer then being jammed into a hotel room. The views are great, and the owners were helpful.

Spectacular views of the ocean and the city from the balcony!!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this condo for 1 week July 2014 and wished that I could have stayed longer!!!

The place was just as described in the website and more!! The kitchen is fully stocked, spices and all... not that we did much cooking - there are so many good restaurants with reasonable pricing within the walking distance in the area that we wanted to try as many as possible. The condo has two parking spaces, which came in handy when my son and daughter-in-law were visiting. I enjoyed the long walks on the beach and exploring the downtown area and side streets. The location is also excellent if you want to get to Los Angeles.

I would definitely recommend this place and will stay there the next time I'm visiting the kids!!!

Wonderful condominium

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here a few months ago while attending the TED conference which takes place right next door, and I hope to stay here again in the future. The condominium is very comfortable, and working with Janis was very easy, she is a very nice person. I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone considering it.
