Overview

About the property

2 Story historical landmark home

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.

About Doris Bartlett

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

Why Doris Bartlett chose Long Beach

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Notes:
Only 2 mission revival homes made it through the 1920's Long beach earthquake and ours is one of them. It is a historical landmark. We have a picture on the fireplace mantel showing the house back in the early days. Just a little tidbit: the man who built the house was called James Beer. Because of that my husband always refers to our house as the 1st beer house in Long Beach.

Big house with lots of room in a great location with a fantastic owner!

  • 4 of 5

The owners were incredibly helpful with making sure the house was ready for our arrival, and went above and beyond to accommodate our check-in experience. The house is very roomy and was perfect for our family. After the planned renovations are completed to remove the carpet and do a little interior decorating, the house will be even better!

We were very comfortable in this beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of nine stayed for a week in this beautiful house in Long Beach. The house has character and there was plenty of room for us all to be comfortable! We loved the area also since we were able to walk to the beach, parks, a unique little cafe, and shopping.

Spacious, historic, wonderfully located home!!

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed at the house for our wedding weekend, and it was a large space perfect for a large group of guests. The beds were very comfortable, and the patio area was quite pleasant for morning coffee. The owner, Joe, was very accommodating and made sure that we felt at home. We had a BBQ event prior to our wedding, and the house was a perfect place for family and friends to gather. The history of the house made the experience unique. We only had one real issue with this rental. The onsite occupants (whose immediate presence we did not anticipate) made us feel as though we had little privacy. While well-intentioned and friendly, they frequently interrupted our family moments and conversations.

The home was perfect. Clean and comfortable for eight. Everyone loved it

  • 5 of 5

The owner met us and showed us around. All of the places he suggested to eat were amazing. Everything is available that you could possibly need in this home. And that is what it felt like a home. Highly recommend it. The porch that you get to sit in outside it was my favorite. The flowers are absolutely beautiful and there is much to do in the area. We couldn't of asked for anything more. Bring your family and have a good time

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.
