Come spend your vacation in our impeccable updated California Spanish style second home. This exceptional home is perfect for business professionals attending conferences and leisure travelers alike. Moms and Dads appreciate the ease and comfort of a home instead of a hotel. Our large main front unit in a four-plex located near 4th St allows an easy walk to trendy retro-row shopping and dining (www.4thstreetlongbeach.com), quick access to the beach via foot or car (www.longbeach.gov/park/park-and-facilities/directory/bluff-park/) and is on the bus line to downtown. Guests have often commented about the ease of shopping for groceries at Ralph's literally across the street.
The open concept living area includes a well equipped kitchen with newer GE Profile appliances, quartz countertops, microwave, crockpot, and enough pots and pans and dishes to prepare a feast for a crowd. A private patio situated off the dining room, with a separate entrance from the master bedroom, has seating for six at an outdoor table and a small and large Weber kettle grills. There are two TV's, one 50 inch in the living area and a 32 inch on in the master bedroom. Sleeping accommodations for six: king bed in the master, queen in 2nd bedroom and two twins in bedroom 3. Master has it's own 3/4 bath, and hall has a full bath. There is on-site laundry and a double garage, plus plenty of additional parking on the street.
After searching several warm locales from Florida to Arizona for a winter retreat from Colordo, we settled on redoing the existing large apartment in our Long Beach 4-plex. We like a walkable neighborhood with lots of shops and restaurants. So we are sharing this space as we wait to hit full retirement in a couple years. The other three units are full time occupied with long term tenants in the 30-65 age range, so it's not a place to rent if you plan late night parties/events at the property.
Charlie Gerretson purchased this apartment in 1995
As our second home where we stay 8-10 weeks a year, it's very well kept up and things are improved and updated regularly. Three year old couches and LR chairs were replaced with ones of much higher quality. Since we primarily cook at home and like to entertain, we have lots of cookware, and even items like commercial baking sheets, a salad spinner, electric corkscrew, Henckels knives. The frig has a rapid cool or defrost option. In door water and ice.
Great location, nice house, comfortable, quiet, very clean. We want to stay there again on our next visit to Long Beach.
Unfortunately we were unable to take our trip due to a family emergency. Charlie went above and beyond to provide the necessary information which allowed us to receive our refund through CSA travel protection. His quick response and attention to detail helped to get our claim approved. Should I ever have need for a Long Beach rental in the future I will definitely be booking here.
This was the perfect choice for my family members who were coming to Long Beach for a wedding. The unit is quite spacious, well-decorated, and very clean. There is a small patio with a grill and a patio table set. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, utensils, and cookware.The living room is spacious and has a large TV. Everything was really wonderful. The only slight difficulty we had was parking. We had two cars and so one was able to park in the garage. But the other car, and then another visitor we had over had a pretty big challenge finding street parking in the evening. During the day parking was not a problem but if we came back later in the evening it was difficult. The property manager suggested that we park in the alley right in front of the garage, but that made it difficult for our family member who was parked in the garage to come and go. But that was a very small challenge in what was otherwise a perfect stay.
We had a great time staying this property during 9/9 to 9/13 for 4 nights for the Long Beach Beauty Show. The property was clean, space was huge and we even had a pleasant opportunity to first time using the new couch the owner just bought! The location is so convenient! Every night, We took 2 minutes to walk to the Food Store which just in frond of the house to buy everything we needed.
The people there was great helpful! Thank you Charlie and Jim!
We are a family of four and stayed for 20 days in July.
Communication with Charlie beforehand was excellent and very easy to get keys.
The house is fabulous! It is a modern decor and had everything we needed. It is well maintained and clean. The kitchen was very well equipped with all cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery. Even small things like paper towels, foil, rubbish bags, coffee filters etc were all there.
The lounge has excellent air conditioning, the rooms have fans. The rooms are all very good sizes with large built-in wardrobes so lots of space for clothes. The utility room had a washing machine and dryer.
The neighbourhood was quiet, there is off-street parking in the garage to the rear and having Ralph's across the road was super convenient. There are several restaurants/coffee shops within walking distance. All locations like Disneyland, beaches and other child friendly attractions were all within easy distance.
The whole house has been modernised and nicely furnished. It was a 'home away from home' and we highly recommend it. We will use it again in the future when visiting family.
About 3 miles to downtown and the convention center and Long Beach Aquarium. About 3 miles the other direction to 2nd Street shopping/dining district, pier and swimming beaches. 30-45 minutes to Disneyland, Downtown LA, Hollywood, The Getty, and the great surfing of Huntington Beach. 90 minutes to San Diego, Lego Land, and lots of things to do and see in between
