About 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.

Bienvenido!

Shawn & David purchased this apartment in 1992

Why Shawn & David chose Belmont Shore

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

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Wonderful accommodations - loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Shawn & David's and immediately felt at home. A wonderful place to spend a few days with ample space for our family (two adults, three teenagers) and beautifully decorated rooms. The location is also outstanding - walking distance to shopping, restaurants and the beach. The kitchen was well stocked, and there was a bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival, as well as yogurt, fresh avocados and other treats in the fridge - wonderful after a day of travelling! Additionally, toiletries, beach towels and coolers were also provided. We have rented many homes when travelling and this one stands out for its overall excellence - our highest recommendation. Thank you Shawn and David, we loved our stay!

Wonderful Belmont Shore stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at Quincey La Casa. Wonderful mornings drinking coffee out on the back deck/patio. Plenty of room for our family of 5. The location was terrific - walking to the restaurants and shops on 2nd and the beach only a couple blocks away.

Just like the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this rental because I fell in love with it when looking at the pictures! I was nervous it might not be as great in person but it was absolutely beautiful! My husband, who is tough to impress, commended me on finding such a nice place. The owners had left some staple items for us (including coffee and creamer) which was greatly appreciated our first morning as we had arrived late. I loved relaxing on the beautiful rooftop patio and likely would have spent more time at the house had we not had out teenage sons with us who were looking for adventure. Would absolutely recommend this place to anyone staying in the Long Beach area!! Thanks Shawn and David for sharing your beautiful home!

Good Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Overall impression was good. Shawn and David had a lot of the day to day items stocked which made it easier for my family of 5. From beach gear (cooler and umbrella) to kitchen supplies, we only had to buy food. They provided directions to grocery stores and recommended good places to eat. Finding the light switches to all the many light sources was sometimes tricky but we figured it out. My kids appreciated the motion nightlights in the bathroom. When they'd wake in the middle of the night, they didn't have to try and find the light switch to use the restroom when everyone else is sleeping. That was a nice bonus. Parking was arranged and that was helpful as well. Two king beds was also nice and the cot provided made sure everyone was comfortable. The dog beach is two blocks away. I'd stay here again if I was in the area.

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful! Loved all the windows and the deck. My family loved it. My daughter said “I want to live here, in this neighborhood, in this unit.” I finally had to tell her to stop after a couple days.

Very nice renovated and decorated home

  • 5 of 5

This property was centrally located to where we needed to be. The owners lived downstairs and were very tolerate of us - we had a 3 year old and 14 month old with us. All the amenities we needed were provided with even a washer and dryer. We had family over and sat in the outside patio which was built over the garage. Parking at night was difficult for our second car - space was provided for one car. Overall, it was a great place to stay.
