About Susan

I moved to Long Beach from the UK 18 years ago and I Haven't left yet. I love the California Lifestyle and the fact that you can be on the beach in the morning & ski in the afternoon if you want, I think is amazing.

Susan purchased this villa in 2011

Why Susan chose Long Beach

I just love the Long Beach location, You can be In LA or Orange County so quickly its so in the middle, which is great for both business and fun. its so convenient. Also the people here are so diverse and friendly.

What makes this villa unique

I fell in love with this home for the View and the Architecture and that you can walk to Second street & the Beach with shops & restaurants only 3 blocks away.

A beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in this property with several family members and friends when attending a wedding in Long Beach. Redone historic (1920s?) house; conveniently located between the downtown area and Belmont Shore. Found a coffee shop and small grocery store within a short walking distance. After crossing the street, and green area seen in the main photo, it is an easy walk down a flight of stairs to the beach. Lovely view of the ocean from the front porch and living room - no obstruction from buildings. House also has many nice outside areas. Due to the unseasonably cold weather, and rain, we didn't get to enjoy those spots as much as I would have liked. Did spend a nice time, late one afternoon, sitting on the front porch, sipping a glass of wine, and watching the sun set. Inside the house, the bedrooms, common areas, and kitchen are very much as pictured - nicely redone. Comfortable beds and linens. A well-appointed kitchen. Front door was in disrepair, but owner was in the process of replacing as soon as the rains ended. My family and friends thought it was a great place for our stay.

Things to be aware of: 2 bedrooms have connected bathrooms. 2 other bedrooms share a hallway bathroom. That worked for my group, but might not work for every group. Front bedroom is separated from the main common area by folding doors and curtains - so it works better for the earliest riser. Property is the ground floor; upstairs is separately rented. Noise from the top floor carries down. One morning, an energetic toddler was running laps upstairs. One night, upstairs guests were up late with music, conversation, and footfalls. I called the owner who was very responsive in getting them to quiet down. Garages do not have remotes to open doors, so someone must get out of car, go through gate, and open door from the inside. It would have been nice to have some wood/logs available to burn in the outdoor fireplaces; I checked a grocery store but couldn't find any. None of these factors would prevent me from staying in the house again.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about this perfect place. We rented all three villas to accommodate an extended family for my sons wedding in Long Beach. Enough room where we could spread out yet come together easily. Across from park and beach as well as close enough to stores. Wedding venue, Loft on Pine, another beautiful place, was within 10 minutes. The backyard was large and easily able to accommodate all those coming and going. No problems with street parking this time of year, early March. Susan was available although we didn't have any problems or needs while there. A wonderful place to create lasting memories! Thanks Susan! Hope to return soon!

Very elegant beach front home.

  • 5 of 5

The overall experience was very easy. The house was very clean and maintained. Shopping and food was 3 blocks away ( within a short walk ). The sheets are high thread count unlike a hotel. And the beds were very comfy. A+

Good stay

  • 3 of 5

I would like to review this as a 3 1/2 stars. This house is in a great location to the downtown area where our event was held. The house truly is beautiful, as is the view and the owner is accommodating and attentive. Be conscientious of the fact that when it reads bottom floor only, that there are potential residents in two different rentals on the second floor. This creates a communal backyard and people walking past windows and glass doors of the lower level. At one point, the smell of marijuana from the other renters was so strong and their mouths inappropriate, I kept my children inside. It is loud when there are other renters upstairs which caused some of the light sleepers to not sleep so well. If I needed to rent the entire house I would consider renting here again but the fact that there were people above us caused our stay to not be private causing privacy and sleeping issues.

Owner's Response: Hi Melissa, I am so sorry to Hear this... If I had known regarding the Drugs .. as they are not allowed at these villa's I would have let the guest know that it was not acceptable.. Most guests that stay at the Upstairs 2 Villa's are from all Asia, Australia, Europe, etc and are here to go to Disneyland Hollywood etc.. and are most most of the time.. I have had at least 30 weddings, 40 baby showers, etc at this property when guests only rented the Ground Floor and there has never been an issue in the past.. this seems to have been a 1 off.. If i receive a phonecall I can usually fix any situation immediatley, Unfortunately I did not know about this until I saw the review.. communication is best when all parties talk and any issues can be resolved asap..I do try to help in all situations Thanks Susan
