About Shawn & David Black

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 Black purchased this apartment in 1992

Why Shawn & David Black 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.

Great place! Better than described.

Shawn and David were great!! Attentive to every need. They had everything you needed from toiletries that you might have forgotten to basic seasonings. The refrigerator had breakfast food so you were all set the next morning. The home itself was beautiful, super location and the patio was splendid!

This may well be the best VRBO that we have ever stayed at and we have used VRBO

  • 5 of 5

Every aspect of this beautiful property including the hosts exceeded our expectations. I can't remember ever having such a strong desire to stay permanently and become the owner of the rental. That truly says a lot as we have a beautiful home at the beach not more than 20 minutes from here. We only rented this charming place because our home was being treated for termites on the day we returned from a Hawaii vacation. It started out as a inconvenience and ended up as a blessing.

Shawn & David thank you for sharing this amazing historical charmer with us and our dog Lilly.

Lovely Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Quincy La Casa and Shawn was very welcoming and helpful! The fresh fruit and bottle of wine as well as other items was a nice treat for us and greatly appreciated. We really enjoyed the back deck and had some nice visits with friends and family. Our dog Winston also felt very comfortable and loved the doggy blanket provided so he could feel at home and sit on the couch! We really felt like we were staying in a friends home, complete with a stocked fridge, lots of books on shelves, plenty of clean, soft bath towels and cozy blankets and bedding!

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having you and your fur babe, Winston. So glad you enjoyed the large patio deck, one of our favorite chill spots in Quincy La Casa. We try to think of everything that would make our guests feel comfy, from soft linens to bath essentials to magazines and a library of books. Even a washer & dryer for when you return from the beach with your friends and or animals. We loved having you. Hope to see you again when you want to get away from the heat of Arizona. Thank you!
