|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
This 1st floor dream home on the sand is located on a corner lot in Sunset Beach, a unique community located North of Huntington Beach and just South of Long Beach and Seal Beach.
No need to cross the street to go to the beach........ you are already there! This very clean home was thoughtfully prepared by 2nd generation vacation rental proprietors who have spent many years of their lives living and traveling the world. After over a decade of hotel stays; the standard of our home's cleaning, details, amenities and conveniences far exceeds that of most places. Life guard stand at the edge of the property & shore.
Sunset Beach is a wonderful one-mile long “small town”, with year around events, it is close to many Southern California attractions - but nestled away on a beautiful uncrowded white sandy beach.
Its name gives away our secret of breath taking sunsets and views of Catalina Island from your dream home and amazing deck on the sand.
Over 50 years ago our family built this elegant yet comfortable downstairs apartment on the sand surrounded by a lush tropical garden, sandy beach and Pacific Ocean. The dining room and living room large ocean view doors open out to a spacious and magnificent deck on the sand.
Take in the warm sun, fresh breeze, beautiful views, sunsets. Relax and unwind. Watch the birds fly by and often the dolphins at play. It is an amazing place to watch time go by and make lifelong memories.
If you decide to venture from your spacious deck and return from strolling, swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, sunning, or shell collecting - enjoy the outdoor shower with endless hot water.
Take in the view while Barbecuing or even from the kitchen. Or there are many wonderful restaurants within walking distance (or delivery), shopping and sites are a short distance away.
The Sunset Decadence is truly a special place. Enjoy your dream home away from home; just relax and get away from it all, or in the evenings between day trips.

We plan to return many more times.
Everything one wants and needs. We both needed to rest some aching bodies and were
very content to walk the beach, sit on the deck, and see and hear the ocean. Did a lot of
home cooking in an amazing and beautiful kitchen. These were the most important things for us. Scot and Diana were always available and always pleasant to talk with. Also we
appreciated the chemical free atmosphere. Definitely plan to return. Only 1 thing: if you
are under 5'4" some things may be hard to reach. But 1 spectacular sunset makes any
small inconvenience worth it.
If your looking for some good down time, with direct beach access, this location is perfect! Sunset beach is a locals beach meaning no overwhelming crowds and plenty of relaxing mornings and evenings on the expansive deck off living room that extends directly onto beach sand. If you are needing more excitement, neighboring beach communities are just 5 min drive and options for biking on Boardwalk along beach, or nice walk. There are plenty of good restaurants to choose from for easy dining. The property is fully equipped too for all cooking or bbq grilling interests. Very clean and comfortable stay. Owners are. Era ice and helpful.
This rental was a wonderful experience. The inside is modern, clean and very quiet at night with the windows open and the ocean breeze coming in to help us sleep. We have been in the winter and the summer and each time it is a new experience for us. It is close to the pier for shopping and eating and their are some restaurants and night life experiences which are in short walking distances from the rental. The owners are extremely helpful, pleasant and very accommodating and are just a phone call away (in fact hey are staying in the same building). Finally, the beach is huge with plenty of room for our entire family with plenty of space in the sand for football, frisbee, etc. The view! My wife and I simply could not stop taking pictures of the sunset...it was truly beautiful in every sense of the word.
The home is so beautiful, it has all the accommodations of home even Board games !!. The beach is never crowded while we were there. It was nice to be able to go see the sites and then come back after a long day to feel that sea air on my face as I relax on the desk. I loved watching the sunsets. I cant wait to come back here. The owners are on site and was able to help me out with any questions from directions to where to eat. Such nice people to go along with such a beautiful place.
My family returned to Sunset Deckadence in January for our second stay at "Surf City" as my kids call it. This place will always hold a special place in our hearts and our memories, the experience truly cannot be replicated. Yes, you pay a little bit more to stay right on the beach, but in the end, it seems that you end up saving money by not having to go out for every meal. Besides that, the experience of being able to walk directly into and out of your own property and not have to drive anywhere is well worth it, especially with young kids (3 and 5.5 this time). I love that when we stay here we can go to the beach as many times as we want in a day and don't have to think twice about going back to the room in between. And, as a family, nothing compares to the experience and memories created with living this simple, quiet life that the beach house brings. Scot and Diana (the owners) are such amazing, genuine people and I love seeing them while sharing their little piece of heaven. They go above and beyond to accommodate and make you feel at home in this allergy-free, chemical-free oasis, while never being intrusive. Thanks again for sharing your home. Now, on to the poem I wrote while staying at the beach house!
The sound of the ocean
the feel of the breeze
to the peace that it brings.
Spending the days
in surf and in sand
toes in the water
shells in our hands.
The deck overlooking
waves crashing in
don't want these days
of perfection ever to end.
Sun sets over water
as days fade to night
words cannot describe
the glorious sight.
Wind in our sails
it's time to depart ~
may this perfect beach house etch
a special place
in our minds & our hearts!
<3 Thank you Scot and Diana for another magical stay!

I've read a lot of great reviews from parents for this listing but I wanted to take some time to provide how much kids, both young and old, love this place. My family has been vacationing here over the 4th of July for the past couple of years, and there really is no describing how wonderful the deck and the beach access is. We spend the majority of our stay sitting out on the deck soaking up the sun during the day and enjoying the cool summer evenings. We are outside during the majority of our stay. Having all of the comforts and conveniences home directly on the beach is truly irreplaceable. All of my poor memories as a kid at the beach involve countless trips back and forth from the car to get set up on the beach to ultimately wanting to leave early. That never happens here. It is about as carefree of a beach experience as you can get.
What I also love about this house is how quiet it is. Being in Sunset Beach, there is not a lot of visitor parking so even on the busiest beach days of the year you have plenty of beach space and privacy. There is not a raging party scene but if you are looking for that, Huntington Beach is just down the road. This house definitely holds a special place in our families heart and I would all but guarantee it will for yours too.
Take a romantic stroll on the beach or explore by beach combing.
Stroll the greenbelt through residential Sunset Beach. Lifeguards
are on the beach from June to September. Walking distance to
Huntington Harbor and Peter’s Landing; Bicycle, Kayak and Surfboard
rentals, and a variety of Restaurants and “watering holes”. It is
nice places to jog, run, and skate around town… Or just relax!
Sunset Beach is a wonderful family beach community. Enjoy BBQing, sunbathe on the deck or the wind protected “nook” by the landmark catamaran.
Seal Beach and Huntington Beach Piers are only 10 minutes away.
Bolsa Chica Wetlands is less than a 1 mile away. Enjoy the Long
Beach Aquarium of the Pacific, Museums. Newport Beach, miniature
golf, cinemas, many golf courses, South Coast Plaza and other
shopping centers – all about a 15 to 25 minute drive.
In the area:
Drive 30 minutes or so to Knott’s Berry Farm, Disneyland, Discovery
