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
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.
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.
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.
Our family of 11 stayed at this beautiful home over labor day weekend and had a wonderful time. The home was clean, was in a great location and perfect for a large family. If you're considering staying at the home, would highly recommend it.
The property overall was good. There were a few things that could have made it better. They need to fix the bathtub and the kitchen faucets! They were both loose. They should also fix the screens that don't fit and put screens on where they are missing! The front door is also missing some stained glass and they have wood blocks nailed on! Screen doors would have been great for air circulation and bug control! We all still had a great time! The owner was very responsive when told about other issues! I realize that rentals take a lot of abuse.
Beautiful home and it wonderful to be able to be so close to the beach!!
We had s great time. The house is awesome. Its an older historic home with tons if charm. Very comfortable and lots to do within walking distance. We had an awesome bbq lunch in the backyard using the provided grill.
Susan was super attentive and a pleasure to do business with. Highly recommended!!
First off, "newly remodeled" is code for "old home." The hardwood floors need to be replaced, not refinished. Huge gaps between boards, holes in the wood, and exposed nailheads that I actually cut my foot on the first night we were there. It's impossible to clean the floors enough the remove all of the dirt stuck in the cracks of the floor, which is super exciting when there are 4 little kids crawling on the floor and playing.
Next, the chef's delight kitchen. The island marble was likely never sealed, as there are patches of stains/scuffs that cannot be cleaned. The dishwasher has a layer of scum in it, as it's likely never been sanitized/cleaned. The water pressure in the kitchen is variable, from a slow trickle to a medium stream. And the silverware looks like it was collected from a few flea markets in Watts...tarnished, hodgepodge collection of unmatched silverware. Seriously, spend the $20 at WalMart for a complete set that doesn't look 50 years old.
The front door has been kicked in on the bottom left, and the glass has been replaced with some plywood. A few of the windows don't lock. So we had to take our valuables with us every time we left the house. A few of the doorknobs don't work, specifically in one of the bathrooms...nothing like sitting on the toilet without being able to keep the door closed! My wife's hair straightener tripped the circuit every time she used it, so we continually had to remove a picture to get to the fusebox.
One of the bathrooms has no shower curtain, so there'd be a constant puddle on the floor. The smoke alarms in every room are great...if they'd have been attached. All of them were removed, leaving exposed wires. Also, the other renters are well within earshot. The stairwell for the upstairs unit goes right past a headboard in one of the bedrooms, and the walls are not insulated. Small kids above you means you're up when they're up. Not exactly what I expected when we rented a "house."
The parking situation is less than ideal. The garage is tiny, so don't expect to rent an SUV and have a protected parking spot. Also, ONE set of keys for 10 people in the house was, at the least, very inconvenient.
I've run out of space (I've got plenty more to say), so I'll say this: This house is not worth the money. The other reviews that say this is a beautiful home are clearly friends/relatives writing reviews for this owner. I have never stayed somewhere that was so clearly a downgrade from my personal home. HORRIBLE.
Steps to the Ocean Boardwalk are just across the street for biking, rollerblading or walking and there are 3 restaurants with an Ocean View all a 5 min walk away.
Belmont plaza Outdoor Pool is also less than a 10 min walk away.
The Broadway strip with shops, Restaurants bars is only 3 blocks away,it's an easy walk.
The supermarket is a 5 min walk
Second Street is a 10 min walk.
Also the Red passport bus which takes you to all attractions in Long Beach, is 80 yards away and runs till midnight.
