Perfect little beach apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Had an awesome time at Tim's property and would definitely stay again! Tranquil location away from lively 2nd street but close enough to the bars and restaurants as well. Tim was always available and helpful if we needed anything!

No better way to enjoy Long Beach

  • 5 of 5

This apartment's proximity to the bayside beach (about 25 steps) and ABYC (yacht club w/ sailing event we came down for) couldn't be better. What an awesome place and community. We already miss it and can't wait to visit again.

Awesome location!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our entire stay! The place was super clean and the hosts were very really accommodating! They kept us up to date on events and helped with parking! The location is perfect to go to the bay or beach. It is also a nice walk to 2nd street where there are a ton of places to eat! We can't wait to go back!

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.
