About Carol

We are a friendly married professional couple in our 50's. We have traveled all around USA, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia. We love meeting people from all over the world and sharing different stories and experiences. As well as traveling we also enjoy skiing, cycling, hiking and motorcycling. We look forward to seeing you in our beach apt soon! Carol and Traian PS. We speak English, Romanian and French!

Carol purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Carol chose Belmont Shore

We bought the house because it is very convenient to be able to walk to shops and restaurants and to walk to the beach. We think that Belmont Shore is a fun place to be and there is always lots of activities going on. Being able to walk to the beach and not drive, is a real plus! Also it is not far to go to LA, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Huntington Beach, Laguna Beach, and Disneyland!

What makes this apartment unique

The unique benefits of this rental are that you may walk in minutes to the beach, and to shops and restaurants. There are lots of activities in the area, and yet the apt itself is quite quiet and peaceful. Since we live on the property in the main house, we are around to help or give information on the area to our visitors!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Carol and Traian, Thank you for your hospitality and kindness. I found the apartment very comfortable, and quiet, and I enjoyed being so close to the restaurants and cafes on 2nd street. Thank you for letting me park my rental motorcycle in the garage. I hope that this visit will be followed by many often. Sincerely, Joel from Marseille, France

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time in CA and this VRBO was perfect! Great small and cozy stay for my wife and I. Stones throw from the beach and downtown has everything you need. Neighborhood was very friendly! Parking was a little tricky on the weekend but once you parked there was no need to move.

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

I spent 5 days here for the Grand Prix weekend. The location is perfect. A nice neighbor called out warning me of the street cleaning that day because it was after 9am. I moved my car no problem. Parking was fine. The 2nd street restaurants are within walking distance, which is great. The unit is quiet, well maintained and Carol and Traian are very responsive and accommodating. I have been coming to Long Beach for the last 10 years and the value of a quiet comfortable apartment was much greater than any of the local hotels. I used the bike provided for a nice ride up to Downtown Long Beach on a great bike path along the beach. Would definitely want to stay here next time I am in Long Beach.

so cal


  • 5 of 5

I had the privilege to spend the last 3 weeks at this property. The location was excellent and the accommodation's were A+++. Clean, quiet, safe and the amenities made you feel right at home. The owners; Carol and Traian made me feel part of the family and met all my needs during my vacation. I would strongly recommend this property to anyone who like to stay in the Belmont Shore area. You are walking to distance to the famous 2nd street area that includes the best restaurant's and nightlife when on vacation. I know I will be returning in the near future. I guarantee you will not be disappointed for the value.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband, baby boy and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was well-appointed, bright, clean, quiet and comfortable. The location was perfect and close to the local shops and restaurants in Belmont Shore. It's also just a few blocks from the beach, which is great. We would certainly recommend this listing to friends and would happily stay there again next time we're in Long Beach.

Belmont Shore is the trendiest part of Long Beach and is like a small seaside community. On 2nd street which is a 3 minute walk you have many restaurants, cafes, boutiques and bars.

If you have a car you can go to Huntington Beach 10 miles, Newport Beach - 14 miles, Laguna beach -26 miles. You can head north to famous Redondo and Hermosa Beaches..25 minutes to Disneyland, 32 miles into LA - and Hollywood and Santa Monica. Belmont Shore is a perfect to base yourself for a holiday in Southern California!!
