Born and raised in Southern California, I have always had an affinity to the beach. I travel frequently and often stay in VRBO rentals. I've had such a positive experience that I decided to share my guest house with others.
Robert Zavala purchased this cottage in 2014
The proximity to the beach and other area attractions make this location ideal. The neighborhood is historic and retains most of it's turn of the century charm. I feel fortunate to call this place home.
The guest house is steps to the beach. Centrally located between Los Angeles and Orange County, Long Beach provides the perfect launching point to enjoy all that Southern California has to offer.
Robert was a great host and very accommodating. He met me when I arrived and showed me the beach house and the amenities. Parking in that area of town can be tricky but he was willing to let me use a dedicated spot by the garage which I really appreciated since I had my 2 year old son in tow.
The house is very nicely furnished, upgraded and clean. It has A/C which usually in Long Beach is not needed, but they were having a little hot spell and it was very nice to have! I made a few meals in the kitchen and it had all of the utensils that I needed. He even supplied coffee pods and creamer, which was an added bonus.
A few nice touches that we didn't get to take advantage of are the fluffy beach towels, beach chairs and sunshade for a fun day by the water and the bikes to ride on the bike path. If we visit Long Beach again this will definitely be a place I would stay again.
Good location in nice neighbourhood. Very clean and nicely decorated. Would definitely stay again.
Had a great time in Long Beach. The property is wonderful and you couldn't ask for a better location. The guest house was clean and well stocked with everything you need and the owner Robert is absolutely fantastic. If your visiting Long Beach do yourself a favor and check this place out. Thanks again Robert for making us feel at home.
We had a great time- Rode bikes, grilled and walked on the beach. Everything was first class - thank you - will definitely visit again
A great accommodation and in a great area. In between most places. We drove all around California and was a perfect base. Robert was fantastic we got in late at night and he made sure we where all settled in. He was only a phone call away if we needed anything. I will be recommending this place to friends and family . Would stay here again if back in the area .
We absolutely loved this rental! I stayed here with my boyfriend from July 11-July 18. We are in our late 20s and had a great time!
The location is absolutely perfect. You are half a block from the beach. Can't beat that! It was also a great home base for our travels throughout Long Beach and day trips to Los Angeles, Anaheim & Santa Monica.
The rental is beautifully designed. It has soft colors to encourage relaxation. The hardwood floors were gorgeous & well kept. The bathroom was spotless. The overall design of the cottage is luxurious. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. I truly got a week of great sleep in this rental!! The kitchen was stocked with utensils, flatware & dinnerware to cook home cooked meals. There is also a beautiful outdoor area for lounging and grilling. Additionally, Robert included a binder filled with restaurant recommendations along with a brief history of the cottage. Bikes were provided as well, which was awesome! We took the bikes out and went bike riding on the beach a few times, was awesome!
Above all, we felt like we were at home. There is no better feeling than home & relaxation when you are on vacation! We will be back!
