Spend your next vacation, honeymoon, business travel, or family reunion at this wonderful ocean front house. Its full of luxury, grandiose, and entertainment. You are steps away from the beach access leading to a less populated beach front due to it being far away from parking lots and apartment buildings. This beach front has more calm waves due to the boulder wave breakers, making it a wonderful ocean experience for children to play.

Your own FULL sized TENNIS court! This is a tennis player's dream. If you don't play tennis, why not start here? Whether you decide to play tennis or not, this huge backyard is perfect for the kids to run, skate, bike, or cook up a big backyard BBQ. Backyard gazebo offers additional shade for spectators. Bikes, scooters, and tennis racket/balls are available for you to play.

Relax indoors by watching movies in 5.1 channel in the living room - with an ocean view. Eat dinner - with an ocean view. Play piano or read some books in the library - with an ocean view. Watch the kids play in the backyard through the second floor sun room. Enjoy a fire pit while watching ocean and sunset. Cook a feast in the modern kitchen. Laundry facility for long vacation stays. Enjoy wi-fi throughout the house.

When it's time to nap or call it a night, you have two bedrooms with a great ocean view to stake claim and two more with partial views. The kids can use the boat beds to overextend their bedtime curfew. Use the loft space as another kid's area, play PS3 game, or sleeping area.

This house is for you to enjoy. Watch the movie selections, enjoy the cold drinks, ride the scooters/bikes, read the books in the front yard, so much to do at this house. Please ask us any questions about the property or your stay, we would love to answer your emails.

------------------------------------------------------------------

You can take the bus to Second street or Downtown Long Beach shopping and restaurants. There is the Long Beach Aquarium, boat rides to watch whales and dolphin. Going to the Long Beach Convention Center is also convenient from here.

Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

By far, this is the best vacation house we've had :) Gorgeous view, great space, though-fully stocked with everything we need and beautifully furnished! Not to mention the private tennis court and all the outdoor + indoor family gathering areas. Joanne's and Minh's hospitality can't be beat. Thank you for all the love and thoughtfulness you put into each detail of making our stay wonderful!!!. Tom Tuyen and Kids :)

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location. Can fully leverage the beach. Tennis court was a lot of fun for adults plus kids to wheel around on the bikes. Lots of attention to little things and details to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. House interior and exterior designed to maximally leverage the beautiful weather elements in SoCal. Very thoughtful host.

Fantastic Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting VRBO homes yearly for our Family Spring getaways from cost to coast and this has been our best experience ever.

The property is better than advertised and when we arrived we were so surprised at how they had everything we could want at our finger tips.

We will be back:)

WAY above expectation

  • 5 of 5

This home and the hospitality of the owners was amazing. When we arrived they had great snacks and drink items for me and the team i was with. Lots of towels, extra toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, shower essentials, and even earplugs fo the light sleepers! Really just a superb job of welcoming us into their home!

We had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic! It contained everything we needed- perfect for a family stay with children! Additionally- the hosts were beyond gracious leaving a lovely note along with various food and beverage “staples” that really helped us settle in. Very thoughtful and greatly appreciated! The amenities were great- we would definitely recommend this property!

Beautiful spacious beach house with endless amenities

  • 5 of 5

We gathered our six children, their partners, and six grandchildren December 26, 2017-January 2, 2018. This was the first time we had all been together in the past nine years, so we needed a lot of sleeping space.

The house looks right out on Long Beach Harbor, and is a few steps off the beach on Ocean Blvd. It was completely decked out with holiday decorations both inside and out. The rooms were clean, neat, and the beds were good. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cooking gear, and there were snacks, drinks, and condiments provided.

Out back was a complete tennis court. On one end, there were outdoor tables and chairs, and an outdoor warmer that made dining outside every night pleasant and easy for all of us. The kids enjoyed having a place to ride bikes, scooters, and play.

The back garage was equipped with bicycles, ping pong, a universal weight system,and a small pool table. We tried but were not able to use all the amenities that were available. We did play some basketball, rode bikes nearly every day, walked the beach nearly every day, played games at night, and in general just enjoyed relaxing and being together.

The house was perfect for a family gathering. Lovely sunsets every night, firework shows over the harbor during New Year's Eve, and close to the other attractions of Long Beach. We were sad when our week ended, and would love to come again if we had the chance.

Thanks to our hosts for having a lovely home, decorating so well, and for allowing us to use the kitchen, dishes, beach toys, bikes, and tennis rackets. We made some really great memories during our visit.
