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 Los Angeles area

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.

Charming and cozy. My husband, our 5 year old daughter, my in-laws and I all felt right at home immediately. Lovely outdoor deck with dining table and chill out area, well appointed kitchen, and a parking spot to boot. The one, small, down side is that you have to decide whether to keep the windows open or close the drapes when you go to bed as the windows are on the old side and open inward. We will be back for sure!

Great place! Shawn and David are amazing hosts. They made everything so comfortable and convenient! They thought of everything when it comes to beach vacationing. Our favorite part of the house was the back patio. It made for a great gathering place for evening dinner and family time! Thank you for letting use your home, we had a relaxing time!
