Why Tim Rue chose Long Beach

Water, sand and sea breezes - who could ask for more ? We're an ocean loving family, and with our boat docked nearby, this locale couldn't be better for us.

Perfect Holiday for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

The property is nice, comfortable, perfectly equipped. A real home. The beach is at your feet, so with children it is fabulous. Disneyland is within 20 minutes, but to get to Hollywood takes more than an hour. But it is worth coming here and hiding away from the jampacked places. The community here is very friendly, just like the owner. Tim is helpful, very kind and always available.

So I would come back anytime. Thanks Tim!

A great stay!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was great! A quiet area for relaxing and rejuvenation! The beach on one side and the bay on the other! This house had most every thing you could need for a excellent stay. Great local for biking and water play shops and restaurants. Tim was very easy to talk to and deposit was retuned within hrs of checking out! Just so future guests know parking can be a challenge on the weekend and the stairs going up to the apartment are not for folks with knee or ankle injuries. There also is no outdoor patio or deck space for guest use, but not much can be done about that! We used the ocean and the bay for late night chats! Cant wait to be back.

Baby trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this apt - had everything just like a home, very comfortable stay. The apt is fully stocked with basic necessities and lots of towels and pillows. It was located a few homes away from bay and beach - beautiful setting. We came to Long Beach to await the arrival of our 1st grandchild, who was a week late! So we were able to enjoy the local community - short walk to 2nd street - lots of shops and restaurants. We took many sunset walks on the beach. There's no parking with unit but we did not have any problems finding a stall during the 2 weeks we stayed. There was plenty of parking in this beachside community.

Tim and Rachel were very hospitable & made our stay very enjoyable. We'll definitely stay again on our next visit...

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This Hideaway apartment on the peninsula was the perfect vacation home for us over the holidays. The apartment was plenty big enough for our family of four. It was very comfortable, clean, and had all the amenities that we needed (kitchen appliances, internet, TV with cable and Blue-ray player, extra blankets, etc.). It's a stones throw from the beach, we saw dolphins and even a sea turtle. The community on the peninsula was very relaxed and friendly. You can rent Duffy boats, paddle boards, or just walk along the boardwalk along the beach. We actually rented a gondola and a gondolier took us through the canals of Naples. There are a lot of great restaurants nearby on 2nd St as well as bars and boutique shops. Tim and Rachel made us feel right at home, and are available for any questions or recommendations you may have. We had such a great time we are already looking forward to going back and visiting soon. If you're looking for a relaxed way to visit Long Beach and Southern California we highly recommend staying at the Peninsula Hideaway Apartment by the Bay.
