Great house, great neighborhood, great host!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here!

There are a couple of negatives, but overall it was mostly positive and I would recommend it to others.

First the negatives... the shower has very little hot water pressure. It takes several minutes to get warm, and once it is, it is very weak. Secondly, the majority of the electrical outlets are two pronged and not 3 pronged. That means you need adapters for lots of your stuff.

That being said, everything else about the house was awesome. It was very comfortable and has a lot of character. The host, Jennifer, is a very sharp and caring lady who wants to make sure your stay is comfortable. The washer and dryer work great, the patio is wonderful for hanging out, and the couches are comfortable too. There is adequate parking and the neighborhood is upper middle class with lots of places to eat and shop nearby.

Overall, I highly recommend it if you're looking to stay in the Long Beach area!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We just had the lower plumbing redone in early December and while that hot water pressure got immediately better, the upstairs suffered. That's next on our list! The 3 pronged adapters are in the kitchen in the miscellaneous drawer left of the stove. Wish I'd known you hadn't found them! I will put more out so they're readily available for our next guests. Thanks again for your comments, both positive and negative. All comments are taken seriously and all negatives are corrected as quickly as possible. We hope to host you again!

Nice/Big Property for Families

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Christmas Eve to spend the holidays and were pleasantly surprised at how big the house is and comfortable for everybody (youngest 2, oldest 80). It was nice that everything worked well and didn't require any effort...especially on a holiday after a 500 mile drive. The house is very centrally located in Long Beach, easy access to the public beach, aquarium, shopping and the freeways. The house was very nicely decorated for Christmas which was especially important for the little ones (ok, us older folk too!). Since the weather was pretty cold for SoCal, the fireplace was heaven sent and cozy and made Christmas that much nicer. Jennifer was always available and responsive and I appreciated that. As for lacks, maybe a few more eating utensils? With 7 people we were always washing cutlery but there was plenty of plasticware available. Had to buy toilet paper and trash bags but that was expected. I would gladly stay in this home again except next time it has to be in the summer so we could enjoy the pool and outside area more! Thanks, Jennifer, for sharing your charming home with us this holiday season!

Third time for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time renting this home. The owner is always very sweet and accommodating. We love to spend most of our time in the beautiful extra large backyard BBQing with friends and family, swimming in the beautiful pool, or just relaxing with a book, Or driving to Long beach to watch the sunset. The house has a library of interesting books to read. It's always hard to leave but we have next time to look forward to! Thanks again! See you soon! 😊

The property was large and accommodated our family gathering and enjoying time relaxing very comfort

  • 4 of 5

My siblings and I attended a family funeral and wanted a place near the services to stay. This home was spacious and allowed our large family to gather comfortably . We loved the piano, stocked library, and the beds were very comfortable. The pool and yard were large and the neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful.

Jennifer was attentive and checked on us via text throughout the stay.

As she continues to improve the property I can only imagine it will be better and better.

The best thing about this property was the size, it was great to not be crammed into a hotel but to have space to lounge and enjoy time together.

For the price and the size I would definitely consider this home again .
