Shawn & David
I am an artist/writer who has lived in the beautiful Belmont Shore, Long Beach area for over 20 years with my husband and three dachshunds. We are originally from the East coast. We came to California about 30 years ago and have not looked back since.
My husband is an avid surfer who enjoys jumping in the car any chance he gets to catch the latest swell just 15 minutes south. He also enjoys golfing at anyone of the many golf courses just minutes away when he is feeling particularly good about his game.
As for myself I teach painting to the neighborhood children and a few talented adults in the area. I've worked for over 20 years as an internationally published artist. I've also completed many large hotel design commissions in the Pacific region. Recently I have been spending most of my time writing for a local magazine and working on a children's book based on our lives with three rambunctious wiener dogs and a grey cat who hopes someday to be a dachshund.
We bought our 1928 Spanish duplex as a fixer upper in the 90's. It has become a project of love as each year we continue to update it into a comfortable creative living space.My husband and I live in the lower unit surrounded by our lovely intimate garden.
This year after two decades of renting our beautiful airy upstairs unit we have decided to transform it into a comfortable vacation rental for those wanting to visit this centrally located part of California. Within walking distance to the ocean, bay, five star restaurants and upscale shopping we think our guests will fall in love not only with the area but also with Quincy La Casa.
Shawn and David Black purchased this apartment in 1992
It is a terrific area for the traveling executive. Centrally located between LA and Orange Co. Minutes from 710, 405, 605, 22 freeways. Also good for singles or couples needing a little R and R. Lots of 4 star restaurants. Nicks is terrific. New one is Saint on 2nd, George's for Mediterranean. Minutes to exclusive Naples canals, shopping and restaurants. Stores walking distance such as The Gap, Banana Republic and one-of-a-kind boutiques. Walking distance to beautiful bay area with swimming, sailing and paddle boarding. Or to the ocean for kite boarding swimming or sailing
My husband and I have been in our 1929 Spanish home for over 20 years. We fell in love with the original architecture and charm that rings though out. The location is perfect for lazy weekends when a stroll down to the bay or ocean with a cup of steaming coffee from one of the many bistros on 2nd Street is all that's needed.
We love the small community and picturesque sunsets that grace our area.
This was our favorite VRBO rental! The property was walking distance to beach, bay (kayaks, sup), grocery store, downtown restaurants/shops, and pier (fishing, bike rentals). The property was very clean, well decorated, and well stocked with everything we needed, even snacks! We loved the patio for outdoor dining and just enjoying the ocean breeze. Thank you Shawn and David for your hospitality and a wonderful stay!
We were so lucky to find this amazing rental in Belmont Shore! Comfy beds, well-stocked kitchen, excellent shower/bathroom. Much more spacious than it appears in photos! We found the apartment and neighborhood to be quiet, but still very close to restaurants and shops on 2nd street. Loved having the outdoor space as well. Hope to be able to return on our next trip to the Long Beach area! Shawn and David are wonderful hosts.
my family and I are locals and would like a stay-cation while our house was being fumigated. I have to say it feels like we were out of the country. the house is in a very beautiful location, near 2nd street and the beach. The house was very cozy and it has everything we needed. Thank you so much for the perfect stay-cation! :)
Shawn and David's rental is AWESOME!!
This property is beautiful! Shawn is great to work with. They have thought of every detail. Very relaxing. The location is great. Walking distance to 2nd street and the beach. I highly recommend staying here. I hope to return soon myself!
Shawn and Mike's apartment is a great place to stay and even nicer than it appeared in the photos. i love the 1920's spanish style in the home and it is very nicely decorated.
My sister and I were very happy waking up to coffee on the deck, making meals and cocktails at the end of the day. This is the best stocked kitchen i have every experienced and the dining table was perfect for a dinner party with friends.There was a heat wave while we were there but the breezes that come through every window were cool and refreshing. the neighborhood is sweet and close to some great restaurants and shopping. We highly recommend the property as Shawn and Mike were very good hosts.
We had previously lived in Belmont Shore and have always loved the unique architecture of this lovely beach side neighborhood. Shawn and David's upstairs home is prefect. The photos do not do it justice. Open, lovely floorplan. The rooms are much larger than you would think or expect for a home blocks from the water. Nicely outfitted with everyday luxuries and seasonal decor.
The hosts, Shawn and David, kindly stock the home with essentials and a welcome snack. Full laundry area is an added bonus. The rooftop deck was put to use many evenings.
You are only blocks away from the beach and second street. Second Street is filled with shops, coffee, restaurants, bars, etc. Paddleboard/kayak in the channels through Naples, walk along the beach and cliffs to downtown Long Beach and the the Queen Mary.
One thing to note, if you have never stayed in a home near the water, keep in mind the close proximity you are to your neighbors. It is cozy.
Great location to visit many wonderful attractions. 15 minutes away is the Long Beach Aquarium and historic Queen Mary ship. Famous Huntington Beach Pier, great for surfers. Minutes to Blue Line train station to visit downtown Los Angeles. 20 minutes south to Disneyland, Anaheim or Sea World in San Diego.
