We are a south facing property situated directly on the sand--that is you walk out the door and you are standing on the beach. No streets or parking lots to cross. Be energized by the rising sun to the east, basked in the rays during the day and calmed by the setting sun to the west. If you want an all beach experience, this is it! We have a full-time staff to help you get settled and answer any questions during your stay. Our units are impeccably prepared with pride and include many details our guests truly appreciate. Beachside Retreat is where you come to enjoy your home away from home.

Let the waves lull you to sleep!

  • 5 of 5

This may be the most THOUGHTFUL vacation rental I've seen. Mark came and did a full intro of the property, from the front door to the lovely beach. He keyed the door lock to my cell #--you can do a full stay here without even needing a key (though there is one if you prefer it). There are beach chairs, an umbrella, and beach towels. There is a bag of quarters for the coin op laundry (who does that?! It's so sweet!), a flashlight plugged into the wall in case the power goes out (it didn't, but still a nice touch), hair dryers in the bathroom, a box of tissues in the nightstands, and not one but TWO powerstrips in the bedroom. I've so often found that designated rental units can be uncomfortable, because no one lives in them to realize what is needed--and this was just the opposite. The unit itself is beachfront, and so close that it was much nicer to open my window at night and let the cool breeze in than use the A/C, and it's a treat to listen to the waves all night. The furnishings were in excellent shape, with nice little beach art touches. I stayed here for four nights for a conference (a snowstorm extended my stay by a night), two of them by myself, and felt perfectly safe. The unit is on the 3rd floor from the outside of the building, so it was fine to leave the window open, and on the same level as the entryway from the front (which is down about 4 steps from street level, due to the hill. Oh, and the beds are COMFY! The master bedroom has a shower/tub, the other one just has a shower, and both are very pretty. I would stay here again! (By the way, if you come to Long Beach, do NOT miss King's Fish House! Fabulous food, fun service, and really reasonable.)

Comfy, well stocked, great view and access

Only a mile from many of Long Beach's hot spots, we loved this unit. It was immaculate and had everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The kitchen was well equipped. The beds were comfortable. The view is spectacular! We slept with the windows open. Hearing the sound of the crashing waves is soothing for the soul. Mark the manager was great, we were well informed. The only thing I questioned was the "murky" water. It had dark ash like particles and the sand was dis colored, looked blackish in color. When I asked the life guard what it was he didn't know & Mark the manager said it was fine. The beach was much more cleaner and clear just to the south, about 100 yards down. If you're looking for a great place to eat and you like Mexican food I suggest you eat at Lola's in Long Beach. It was awesome!

Perfect Beachside Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our overall experience was great! We were warmly greeted upon arrival and all of our questions were answered. The property was clean, comfortable and everything we needed was available. There was a variety of great restaurants within walking distance. It was great to walk outside and be at the beach. This was the second time were stayed at this property and every year it keeps getting better and better. We are looking forward to spending some time again next summer.

Perfect ocean getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our week long stay at this fabulous place in this beautiful city! It was everything we hoped it would be and more! The staff was so nice and welcoming. The check-in tour was very helpful. We really appreciated all the small details like the extra things stocked in the kitchen, laundry supplies, the awesome beach chairs and umbrella, the directions to the grocery store and they even provided a few shopping bags! We had everything we could possibly need to have a very comfortable stay. It was the perfect location on the beach which was never crowded! I understand all the complaints about the parking and I agree that it is difficult (I wasn't aware that it was parallel parking) but it definitely got easier with practice. All you need is a good spotter and it's no big deal. I would definitely stay here again and without hesitation recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Long Beach.

Fantastic views and beach access.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit to Long Beach, and spending our evenings and mornings here was fantastic. The view from the living area was awesome . I loved opening the windows in the evening and listening to the surf. There was plenty of beach equipment available. Lots of stuff prrovided to make your stay enjoyable. The beach was pretty quiet because it was far enough away from public beach parking.
