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. We have just refinished the hardwood floors in the whole downstairs (1st floor). The wood floors are original to the house. They are stunning. The house 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 Alamitos 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.

Spacious and well kept property
We really enjoyed our stay at Long Beach.
Thanksgiving in Long Beach
My wife and I stayed at your property while visiting our daughter and her husband for Thanksgiving. It was a great fit for us, being within walking distance of their apartment. The photo and description of the house is both accurate and complete. In addition,when we arrived, we were greeted by a very friendly and helpful owner who provided a tour and described the house in detail. Having dedicated parking is great. The house is very well maintained and is very clean. The living areas are large and very nice.The TVs are large and work well. The kitchen is well stocked with most anything needed for cooking. The bathrooms have been up-dated with walk-in showers in both. When first used, it takes several minutes for the water in the bathrooms to warm up, but there is plenty of hot water. This was a great place to stay and we recommend it to anyone looking for a rental near the beach in Long Beach.
Thank you for your kind words. Our goal is to make our home warm and welcoming. We enjoyed having you as guest.
perfect next-to-the-beach house
Yes, it is an old house and yes the road is a little busy. But it is a really nice old house which is kept very well by the owners. lots of space, very nice furniture and decorations, fully stocked kitchen and everything.
We felt very welcome and even got a nice bottle of wine a gift, thank you Joe and Doris!
I definitely recommend this house and its renters.
Thank you for the kind words. Joe and I thrive to make our home warm and inviting to our guests. We hope you come and visit us again in the future
Loved it wholeheartedly!
This turned out to be the best place for a Sorority getaway. Everything the beach, market, corner store, fast food and restaurants were all nearby and minutes away. The house had a warm embrace with several amenities that satisfied our needs.
Absolutely perfect place!
Great property, really nice interiors, walking distance to the center. Awesome kitchen and dining area, it was a great spot to have dinner parties.
Joe & Doris were also really great hosts. Their communication was impeccable. I got married in Long Beach and they even offered me a bottle of wine as a thank you.
Highly recommend this place!
The house is lovely and close to the beach.
We booked the house for our stay in Long Beach. It looked really well on the Home away site and it lived up to the pictures. It had four big bedrooms. Ours, the master bedroom, was very big with a lovely walk in shower. It also had a double jacuzzi bath which was unable for use due to the drought in California. it also had a walk in wardrobe. the other bedrooms were quite spacious too. We met the owner on arrival who was very friendly. Joe told us about the house and showed us around. He also left a bottle of wine, which was a lovely gesture. We were close to the beach and walked on it most days. the house is also close to shops and bars. there is a small outlets shopping mall just off Pine Street. there are more "tourist" shops about a 10 minute walk away down by the marina. i would recommend the house to anyone going to Long Beach.
We are right across the street from the beach. All you do is cross Ocean Blvd walk 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.
