Spacious, Well-Appointed Retreat in Beautiful Belmont Heights
This 1,300 square foot retreat overlooks the lovely grounds of a classic 1929 Spanish Revival home in the heart of beautiful Belmont Heights. Ideally located three palm-lined blocks away from the restaurants, shopping and bars of trendy 2nd Street in Belmont shore and six blocks from the beach, this delightful property is close enough to be walking distance from all the fun while far enough away to guarantee peace, quiet and plentiful parking, with easy access to freeways and all of Southern California.
Upon arriving at the property, you’ll feel the California/Beach vibe inherent in the neighborhood. As you make your way through the gate into the entry courtyard, you’ll get your first taste of the classic charm that awaits you. The lush landscaping, turreted entry and delightful fountain let you’re in for a special treat.
Your home is upstairs, on your own private floor. The arched windows in the generous barrel-vaulted living room overlook the many palms that line the street below. The space is airy and inviting, and features a large sectional, 46” flat-screen TV, comfy chair, and desk area. The adjacent formal dining room seats six in comfort, and off of it is your private balcony with bistro set, perfect for that morning cup of coffee.
The kitchen is great for those spending a little more time with us, as it features a full-sized refrigerator and range, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and complete dishware, cutlery and cooking paraphernalia. Or, if you’re not in the mood to cook, pick up something hot and tasty from the corner gourmet grocery just five doors down from the house, or drop into one of the more than 30 restaurants on 2nd street, three blocks away.
The bedroom is cozy and comfortable, featuring a king bed with 500 count sheets, a roomy closet and a second flat-screen TV with cable. The adjacent bath is comfortable and complete, with a tub/shower combination and a 48” vanity.
The shared garden/patio area is a place to enjoy the beautiful mild weather of Southern California. There's a waterfall and pond, firepit, and comfortable sitting areas. Nearby is a dining area seating six.
Best of all is the location of this little oasis--close to everything, but a haven of tranquility when you arrive home again. We look forward to welcoming you, and doing all we can to insure a fun and restful visit.
We started using VRBO shortly after its inception so we've stayed in A LOT of homes. This one is one of the very best. You won't need anything because it's all there (but if you do there's a little Ma & Pa store down the street that has delicious prepared food and grocery items.) There was even a huge basket filled with snacks and two bottles of wine. Dennis and Mark have exquisite taste so it was beautifully appointed and the gardens are magical. From the big fluffy comforter to the luscious towels...the comfort of your stay is of utmost importance. The pictures don't do this beauty justice. I was surprised at just how big it is yet still intimate. Dennis and Mark are delightful and will make sure you're well taken care of. If this gem is available when you need it..seriously stop looking. You won't be disappointed.
We can not say enough about this intimate space in the heart of Belmont Heights. Dennis has thought of everything to accommodate guests at this location. The upper apartment with private entrance is unique in many ways. Although, the pictures are accurate, the actual space has large rooms, that are comfortably furnished. The dining room has a table that seats 6 and a cute eating area off the kitchen. The house is full of character and charm, tons of space and natural light. Surrounding the home are shared gardens with water features promoting relaxation and conversations. The neighborhood is quiet and provides easy access to local venues. If your just hanging out in Belmont, you can easily walk to shops and restaurants on Second St. or head to the beach. We definitely hope to book again in the future! Dennis was very approachable and accommodating throughout our quick stay. Search no more...you will really enjoy your stay!
We stayed a week in this wonderful spot near all but nestled away sweetly on a quiet street.
Will do it again. It offers plenty of room and amenities for getting everyone together, or just for snuggling up.
Thanks for all the extras and ease. Its a find and a keeper.

I fell in love with the pictures but when my little 6 pound mini chi ran all around the apartment I knew we were at home. Nothing was left out by my host. In fact I could have gained weight from his gifts. I think I only put on 18 miles Ion my car in 10 days. Every house on the street it's different and ecclectic, I was able to walk to the restaurants and beach areas. I loved coming home to the gorgeous gardens. Have fun I know you will.
We just returned to our desert home after spending two wonderful months at Dennis and Mark's upstair's duplex in Belmont Heights. We have rented many places over the years in the Long Beach area. This was by far the best summer stay we could ever have imagined. The warm and cozy decor throughout the home from the kitchen, breakfast room, dining room and bar area, living room , bedroom, and beautify tiled updated bathroom made our summer most enjoyable. Dennis and Mark were wonderful hosts. We would highly recommend it to others. We will definitely return.

I stayed here for 3 nights prior to and 3 nights after my week in Honolulu. This review is for my second stay (see the earlier account for more details), and it was every bit as wonderful as my first stay. This will be my first choice for a place to stay on all future trips!
