Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Long Beach

Guest house, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6))

This quiet location is just steps to the Ocean, yards to the Bay, and 5 minutes to all the shops, restaurants, boutiques, and night life that Belmont Shore has to offer!

For the adventurous types you are steps from renting a Kayak, SUP, or sail boat, you can Kite Surf, play basketball, handball, racquetball, roller hockey, beach volleyball, or for the little ones there's a playground.

For the not so adventurous, you can lie on the beach and watch! 2 beaches to choose from! One on the Bay (more active) and one on the Pacific Ocean (very quiet with lots of space to spread out!)

Enjoy a stroll along the sparkling waters of the Naples Canal, located just across the bay, or better yet, take a Gondola Ride through the canals, and dream of Italy!

When you are done with fun in the sun, take a leisurely walk to all that Belmont Shore's 2nd Street has to offer, with it's many boutiques, restaurants, coffee and ice cream shops, and Night Clubs, in Belmont Shore or grab your favorite beverage and stroll the friendly neighborhood or sit on the beach and watch the sunset.

Charming shabby chic cottage, light and bright, located behind our beachfront home. 1 bedroom cottage with murphy bed and sofa bed.

No party animals and no smokers! This is quiet residential neighborhood and though it is the perfect vacation spot, you will probably be the only ones who are actually on a vacation. We would love to have you stay with us!!!

Beachfront Escape

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely magical little cottage - it feels like you've escaped to another place and time! Location couldn't be better as you walk out your door and go across Seaside Walk right onto the beach. At the same time you are so close to many restaurants and shops which makes it very convenient and you get the best of both worlds! We were there for a convention at the Long Beach Convention Center so it was a great place to retreat to at the end of very full days. Just wish we had more time there but otherwise no complaints and I very much hope to visit again!

Only Stay in Cool Weather

  • 3 of 5

The cottage is nice and I would recommend it as long as the weather is cool. Unfortunately, we stayed when the temp was in the high 80's and the place was stuffy and hot all day and night! There is no air conditioning or way to get enough cross breeze to cool the place down. The one fan that is provided is small and not adequate.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, you did stay at a particularly hot time. Since you are at the beach, almost on the sand, there is usually a breeze if you open the bedroom and dining room window that faces the beach. If additional fans were needed, I am just a phone call away and can usually be there within 5 minutes. There is not a lot of storage, so we don't keep a bunch of "extra" stuff stored in the cottage. I am sorry that is all you had to say about our cottage. It is disappointing to hear. Most people thoroughly enjoy their experience and it saddens me to hear that you did not. Please consider staying with us again when you can enjoy the beach more. Perhaps off season, when it is cooler, and more to your liking.

The best beach rental ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

The best beach rental this far! this little cottage is a hidden gem! So glad we made the decision to stay here rather than getting a hotel room. The girls and I had such an amazing time and we'll definitely come back soon! Love the decor and best of all, having our backyard as the beach! Thank you so much for letting us stay here over the weekend. And you're right, it's sooo quiet in this area! Great job Joann! 👍𣐽𣑍

A Dream Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to begin! I'm over-the-moon happy with our stay. It is truly 30 steps to the beach. The waves are constant background music. Walking down the boardwalk next to the cottage at night was beautiful with Queen Mary and San Pedro as a lighted backdrop in the distance. Inside the cottage, WOW! I was there for my yearly vacation with my daughter and felt like walked into a vacation dream home. Everything was decorated with such style and taste, right down to the antique coffee cups (amazing). It was one of the cleanest rentals I have ever experienced. I can guarantee this will be our first choice next year. I highly recommend this cottage and when you open the door you will understand why.

California Dreamin

  • 4 of 5

We always stay here when we visit our hometown LB. The cottage is always clean, we are very particular. It is very relaxing and quiet. Just walk outside and there is a beautiful beach. We walk the boardwalk, the shore, and enjoy the mornings & the sunsets.

Excellent location, quiet and very clean

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect location for walks on the beach, watching sunsets while visiting my son who lives on the peninsula also. Made it super easy to walk back and forth while making him food to freeze at his house. (new college grad on his own). Every morning I would walk to 2nd Avenue Starbucks ( a quick 15-20 minute walk) and then walk back on the beach. Can't think of a better way to start the day. The rental is very clean, and quiet. Internet and TV work great.
