Once you've arrived at Maison de Fleurs cottage, you don’t really need a car to enjoy Belmont Shores, Naples, Belmont Heights, several beaches or parks nearby because you're in close proximity to just about everything on foot. Our property is close... yet just far enough to enjoy a little peace and quiet to read a book or take a nap!
Enjoy some local activities: Take a tour of the famous Queen Mary, visit the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific or if you have time - take the ferry to Catalina island. Go whale watching and most likely you'll get to see some dolphins frolicking alongside the boat. Again, there is quite a large selection of restaurants, bars and boutiques within walking distance. You might enjoy riding a bike or walking along the canals of Naples Island to look at beautiful homes, boats and/or beaches. If you don't feel like walking, consider a gondola ride and relax while you enjoy the scenery by water! Visit the Long Beach Art Museum or our local Performing Art Center. For your convenience, we have provided a notebook on site with detailed information on restaurants/menus, activities, etc.
If you're visiting the Long Beach Convention Center, we are a 10 minute drive along the scenic coastline. In addition, there is an hourly bus that will also shuttle you just up the street. The shuttle can take you to Shoreline Village as well where there are more restaurants and sightseeing. Our cottage is an easy drive to Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, South Coast Plaza, and Huntington Beach's popular 'surf city' or Seal Beach. Look at the map and see how close you are to many of the great destinations Southern California has to offer.

******** GETTING TO AND FROM OUR PROPERTY *******
(LGB) Long Beach Airport - (15 minutes)
(LAX) Los Angeles Inter. Airport (35 minutes)
(SNA) Orange County Airport is (30 minutes)
Time wise, LGB is much easier getting 'in and out' of than LAX as it is much smaller and very close to our cottage. SNA (also known as John Wayne Airport) is also a smaller airport and located in Orange County. Timeframes can vary depending on time of day and current traffic conditions.
*********** IMPORTANT NOTE FROM OWNER ***********
'Belmont Shore' is a very unique area and is the most desired destination in Long Beach due to the surrounding shoreline that 'hugs' three sides of this charming community.
If you desire to be within walking distance to all of the shops, restaurants, pubs, and boutiques of 2nd Street, this is the place! The 'down town' area is NOT considered Belmont Shore. Staying within the true boundaries of Belmont Shore will allow you to enjoy the area without having to drive and park your vehicle. Enjoy a property that includes the use of a private on site garage.
**********BOUNDARIES OF BELMONT SHORE*************
-- EAST LIVINGSTON DR. -- BAY SHORE AVE. -- EAST APPIAN WAY -- EAST OCEAN BLVD.
We hope you enjoy our 'home away from home' as much as we do! Just a few houses off 2nd street, we never run out of new and interesting things to do. Our cottage is in the best location if you desire close proximity to great beaches, restaurants, bakeries, and boutiques! Sometimes we just sit on one of the local 2nd street benches just to people watch or take a short stroll up the street and walk along the beach with 'waves', the bay (it's calm and great for younger kids) or the boardwalk to watch the sunset. Be sure to check out the 'location tab' to see just how great our location is. Enjoy the advantage of having the ability to take a short walk to just about everywhere!
Once you've arrived at our peaceful cottage, you will appreciate the private back and side yard as well as the gated front yard. Your proximity to banks, dry cleaners, drug store, post office, massage, salon, etc. is just up the street - minutes away. It's also fun to rent a bike and ride along the bayside or the boardwalk along the ocean. If you're a coffee drinker and don't feel like making a pot at 'home' - there are TWO Starbucks locations a 5 minute walk to the left . . . or a 10 minute walk to the right!
Enjoy all that the 'Shore' has to offer without ever needing to get behind the wheel. The weather here on Southern California's coast is wonderful. As three sides of Belmont Shores is hugged by water, you're sure to enjoy this seaside community. We also love the 'Farmer's Market' situated in the parking lot near the bay, this market is a great way to spend a Sunday morning. Grab what you need for the week, or . . . head across the lot to the weekly Art and Craft fair - both are held at East Marina Drive south of East 2nd Street.
Whatever you choose to do here, come stay at our place . . . enjoy the ocean air, the beaches, the friendly people and all the comforts 'Maison de Fleurs' cottage has to offer.
Without a doubt this is one of the cutest and most impeccably kept homes I have ever stayed in. The location, immediately adjacent to the hip and active 2nd Avenue area was so idea...walkable to the beach, and so many options for shopping and dining. We were also so close to all the theme parks and other So Cal area attractions that it made LA seem more painless than I can even remember. Communicating with the owner was simple and straightforward, and Kelly really took the time out to make you feel comfortable and informed about what there was to do in the area, and how everything works with the house. The charm of the bungalow can not be overstated, and it immediately felt like home away from home. Thank you, Kelly, for a wonderful experience. We will be back!!
The cottage was perfect for a family of 4 adults. The close proximity of second street was a bonus for walking to retail stores and restaurants. The people were friendly and the area was quiet.
5 of us stayed in this perfect getaway during our 45th high school reunion. We were charmed from the moment we arrived, with every need met, and endless visual pleasure. The owner has thought of everything. Our stay could not have been better.
We had a great vacation in this amazing house! The house was very neat/clean. great location close to shopping, restaurants, and beach. We would definitely stay here again!
This was a phenomenal house. Great location and very clean. Great back yard with furniture and updated appliances.
We stayed in this home over Labor Day weekend and had a wonderful time! The Belmont Shore location is perfect - steps from restaurants, shops, and the beach. All of the SoCal attractions are just a short drive away . The house was great - nicely decorated, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked, making meal prep easy. We would definitely stay here again!
