Our property is minutes off 2nd Street with a single car garage!
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 and the Alamitos Bay Yacht Club! 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!
Why Kelly chose Belmont Shore
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!
What makes this House unique
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.

Great base for short LA trip
As described on the website- superb location for a family of 4 . We had a great stay and followed the advice of the owners many times- thanks so much for the hospitality.
Perfect Beach Cottage
My wife Elizabeth described this cottage as "exactly what it would look like if we bought a beach house and spent years collecting furniture and decor." It was very nice - clean, comfortable beds, nice and unique furniture, and a well equipped kitchen. It felt more like someone's private beach house than a VRBO rental. The location was great - set far enough back from the strip to be away from noise, but close enough for a short walk to the beach, dining, and an awesome breakfast bakery.
Kelly (the property manager) was great; responsive and flexible on arrival time and reservation details. She was also very up front about the room layout and parking space available in the garage. We rented a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and it fit in the garage with room to spare, which was nice as we came home late nearly every day.
The house is air conditioned, which means you can keep it closed up if you prefer, but at night the cool air is very nice.
We took Uber to several of our destinations, and there was always one available within a few minutes. Besides the local beach, this house is convenient to Disney, as well as several local beaches and attractions, and is within a short drive to Universal, Rodeo Drive, and the Santa Monica Pier.
We didn't have any problems or issues that we needed help with, but when I did text, Kelly was quick to respond, and made sure we got in okay on arrival.
Overall it was a great trip and we will book this house again.
Cozy cottage in Long Beach
It being our family’s first time in California this cottage was perfect! Kelly is a lovely hostess. Had everything ready for our arrival. It’s clean, comfortable and convenient to anything you want to do within walking distance or driving. We would definitely stay here again!
Beautiful Home, Perfect Location
Our hostess has thought of, and provided for, everything to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The decor is charming. The kitchen is fully-stocked. Everything is easy to operate. Extra plugs and USB ports bring it up-to-date.
Great relaxing home in a great location.
We had a wonderful time and Kelly was a great hostess.
super clean, comfortable, great location
Our first morning in the house everyone remarked about how comfortable the beds were - and the house never disappointed from there. It is in a great location for walking to fun shops and good food - as well as sand, you can sit out in front and enjoy the sun or grill in the backyard. I was with older relatives and the house was super clean and up to even their standards. Kelly was great and we had no problems with keys, doors - or even having enough towels. Lovely stay.
You can conveniently rent bikes at one of the many "on-street stations" with a credit card and return them to another location near your destination.
Boats bikes, surf boards, paddle boards as well as kayaks are available for rent a short distance from our property.
