The Red Casita is an adorable little cottage in the back yard of an historic home in a safe, quiet Long Beach neighborhood. We couldn't have been more comfortable and content. The owner was kind and helpful, the manager wonderful to work with and the cottage itself was immaculately clean, well-stocked and simply and nicely decorated. I spent time writing and my son and I also visited relatives, went to Disneyland and CA Adventure for a couple of days and enjoyed the beach and other attractions in Long Beach. We went out only once in order to save money, cooking in the little kitchen which has an electric skillet, a microwave, toaster, 1/2-sized refrigerator and coffee maker. It was fun and easy to make our meals. The bed was comfortable and my son slept well in the small pull-out single bed. The cottage is close to several restaurants, coffee shops, Target, etc., but almost anything you'd need is within a few minutes driving distance. We will return!
