About the property

4 bedroom 3 bath, close to the beach

Walking distance to the beach and downtown Main Street, this charming community is centrally located. Seal Beach is located between Huntington Beach and the city of Long Beach. We are an hour from downtown Los Angeles and 30 minutes to Disney Land. Our home is fully equipped with conversation room and dining room, french doors open to the peaceful backyard. Small court yard in the front of home to enjoy morning breakfast or sunset drinks. 3 bedrooms downstairs and one master upstairs, tv and family room upstairs which opens to sunroom. The sunroom is a playroom for adults and children and a great place to watch the sunset. We hope you enjoy our casual and comfortable home. We travel for months at a time and we prefer to rent our home to long term guests.

Wonderful stay in this stylish home!

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented this beautiful home for 8 nights. We felt welcome immediately when we arrived. The owners left us a wonderful card and a yummy bottle of wine which we enjoyed in the zen garden. The home is very large, lots of light and decorated with great style. It is located in a safe residential neighborhood that Is a very easy short flat bike ride away from the beach and Main Street. There are many great restaurants on Main Street, however if you feel like eating in, the kitchen is well equipped. We had friends over for dinner one night and part of the dinner conversation was how we all wished we never had to leave this lovely home. After dinner the adults spent hours playing ping pong in the playroom and our two year old granddaughter had equally as much fun with all of the kids toys, especially the ball pit and the tepee. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms great, pebble shower with rain head and nice soaking tub. All dealings with the owners were very professional. We have rented many times thru VRBO and this is by far the nicest home and best experience we have had. We highly recommend this home and Seal Beach.

Spacious family fun

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 wonderful family days - 6 adults and 1 toddler. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook family meals, and there was a grocery store within walking distance. The beds were all comfortable and we were happy to find a rental with 3 full baths. Seal Beach was a short drive away and we enjoyed the restaurants and shops. We were lucky to enjoy the town Christmas tree lighting while we were there. In addition to good sized living and family room areas, there was a game room with ping pong table and activities for young children. The property was as described, and the owner was helpful in answering questions and returned our deposit promptly. I would definitely rent here again.
