Our home is a 4 bedroom, 2 1/3 bath house (3000 square feet) (with all 4 bedrooms upstairs) across the street from the beach. It's has cherrywood beams downstairs and built-in cabinets with glass doors in the dining room. The dining room has a beautiful cherrywood table with seating for 6. The living room has a fireplace along with ample sitting for relaxing and watching TV. The kitchen is fitted with dishes, silverware, pots, pans, electric skillets, slow cooker and everything else a person could want to cook a fabulous meal. We have a toilet next to the kitchen. Upstairs you will find one bedroom has twin beds. Another room has a double bed with a loft (that will sleep one comfortably). The next room has a queen bed. There is a bathroom that services all three bedrooms. The sunroom is located next to the master bedroom in the front of the house. It is a sunny and relaxing room, and I must say it is my favorite room in the house. Our master bedroom is next door to the sunroom. It has a queen bed in it with a loveseat for relaxing. This room has an en-suite with a jacuzzi tub built for two. The sunroom and master suite have french doors leading out to a balcony. We also have a Queen size air mattress that will sleep 2 adults. We have parking for one car inside our gated (remote control)driveway and also parking for one car in our driveway. You will find that having parking is a real asset in Long Beach.
My husband and I are retired. My husband was a vice president of human resources for major corporations. He grew up in Tucson, Arizona and graduated from the University of Arizona. My background was in payroll and also human resources. We have 6 children and 14 grandchildren. (a lot). We love this home and have had many wonderful holidays and dinners with family and friends. We entertained regularly and have had anywhere from 10 to 100 people at the house at one time. We also have a beautiful home in the Palm Springs area (the desert of southern california).
Doris Bartlett purchased this house in 1996
I grew up in the Long Beach area and loved it. It is very rare to find a 100 year old, 2 story home with an attic and a full cellar (part of which we have made into a wine cellar) in Southern California. The home has history that dates back to World War II. It is a historical landmark in Long Beach. We have a marble fireplace in the living room for those cooler winter nights.
This charming home sleeps 8 - 10 people. There is a fenced and gated patio that runs the full length of the front of the house. We normally have our coffee out there and drinks in the afternoon. There are 2 tables on the patio with seating for 8. The home is centrally located to many attractions. You can be in Hollywood within the hour, Santa Monica in 45 minutes, Malibu within an hour. Santa Barbara is a 2 hour drive, but well worth it. Then heading south, you can reach Orange County (Irvine) within 45 minutes or Laguna Beach within 45 minutes. San Diego is an hour and a half away. For those surfers of the world, you can be surfing within 15 minutes in Huntington Beach or further down the coast in San Clemente within 45 minutes.
What a beautiful home! You may have noticed that I used the term "home" and not "rental". I do this because the Bartlett beach house is one of the homes the owners lives in...and it shows. It is truly a home that you are given the privilege of using for a short period of time.
Joe and Doris could simply not be any nicer people to deal with. Doris was always there to answer questions and Joe met us at the home on the day of the rental to walk us through. We booked our second visit the first day we arrived.
For fans of architecture, this home is a real treat. Everywhere you look you are rewarded with construction features that simply cannot be duplicated with today's materials at today's budget.
If you find yourself in the area please consider this property. A lovely six block walk to Shoreline Drive and downtown.
We had a group of eight guys staying here. The living room, dining room, and front porch were all very inviting to gather and talk. We prepared meals in the well stocked kitchen and barbequed outside. The caretakers of the property (that live in the house behind this house) helped us with the barbequing and anything else that needed to be done. The guys had to sleep in separate beds. There were enough beds to accomodate 4 of them, so we used airbeds and put them up in cozy nooks all over the house and it worked out great. It was a great house to stay in.
So grateful for the Bartlett House! Three couples (aka Our Dysfunctional Family) traveling together, visiting real family in Long Beach. The house is so beautiful - truly a home away from home! Great location, secure parking (a huge plus in LB!), beautiful home. They had everything we could have asked for. Joe and Doris took great care of us. Great communication / instructions, a great welcome! We will be back - Don't think twice about staying here!
Last summer 5 members of our family visited our daughter who had been living in Long Beach for a year. We wanted a spacious, comfortable place that was convenient and close to downtown and the beach. This property was beautiful. It was well maintained and stocked with anything you would need. We loved the various "hang out" areas. There was so much room to either find your own quiet place or gather together for family time. The owners were exceptionally nice and accommodating. Bonus... my daughter's home ended up being a 5 min. walk away! Thank you so much Joe and Doris. Your hospitality was greatly appreciated. My apologies for not writing this sooner.
We thoroughly enjoyed this spacious home for 5 nights. The location was perfect, close to the beach and the convention center. The hosts were easy to communicate with, and I would definitely stay here again!
Loud traffic was probably the worst problem. Akward bathrooms and kitchens were another big issue. Positives were affordable, good location, and most beds are comfortable.
We are right across the street from the beach. All you do is cross Ocean Blvd go down about 15 steps and you are on the beach. There is a walking/ running path called the strand. You can jog, walk, roller blade or ride bikes on the strand. Naples Island is close by. There are beautiful homes on the Island and gorgeous yachts for your viewing. Belmont Shore is about a 5 minute drive (a 20 minute walk) away. It has a variety of unique stores and many different types of restaurants. The historical district of old homes is 5 minutes by car, a 10 minute walk and 5 minutes by bike. They are worth seeing. The Museum of Arts is 2 blocks away.
