Absolutely no regrets... except maybe the parking. but still worth it!

  • 5 of 5

So close to the beach I woke up every morning to feel the sand between my toes. I had the best time I could've imagined at this apartment. Parking is tough if you drive anything but a sedan but everything is walking distance so I didn't need my car once I found a parking spot. Everything was so CLEAN and gave a homey feeling.

It was a great property

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the closeness to the shops and restaurants and the easy access to the beach. The place was very clean. It had all the amenities that we needed. The last day or two that we were there, a bad smell was coming out of the dishwasher or the garbage disposal, which we didnt use either of them. My husband tried to look to see what it was but couldn't find anything. I told the cleaning crew when they came and the lady made it seem like that happens and she put bleach in the sink.

The only complaint was the parking. We were told not to get a big truck or mini van or large SUV because of the space available for this unit. We had a small SUV and it barely fit. It seemed to take a lot of steps to get in and out due to the size. Other than that, We had no issues.

Great location , comfortable and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and just a short walk on beach path to Grand Prix. Place was very clean and comfortable. Owners provided beach chairs, umbrella, and change for laundry!

We loved walking out of building and onto the beach.

We will be back soon

A wonderful place for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed at this property for one week. It was a little tight for us, but we loved being so close to the beach! The property had absolutely everything we needed. We really loved that there were very comfortable beach chairs and an awesome beach umbrella. The only thing we would have liked to have had were a few beach toys/buckets, but not a big deal. The chocolates in the bedroom were a very nice touch and the microwave popcorn was really great too!!We felt at home at the property and would definitely stay there again. Thank you very much for helping us have a fun vacation!

Another great vacation at Beachside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time renting Beachside Retreat and it was even better than the first time in 2013. There were upgrades since our last stay such as central air conditioning. The new AC units cooled down the place in minutes. This time our stay was almost two weeks long so the cleaning staff came in and cleaned the whole place halfway through our stay - they did a fabulous job!! I would recommend Beachside Retreat to anyone who will be staying in Long Beach. There are so many things to do in and around Long Beach and this place is close to everything. There is a walking/biking path on the beach right behind the condo that leads to a Marina which has gift shops and restaurants - so convenient if you do not want to drive. We look forward to visiting Long Beach again and would definitely stay at Beachside Retreat again if it's available.
