Walk out the door and you step onto the sand. Table, chairs and BBQ available for your meals on the beach or to take your afternoon tea. Falling asleep is easy with the gentle breeze, ocean waves, peeping birds and smooth wind chimes.

Long Beach is a south facing beach with sun all day. Enjoy the energizing sunrise to the east and a calming sunset to the west. This is a unique location.

We are located just under 1 mile from the Long Beach Convention Center and 30-90 minutes to major southern California attractions such as Disneyland, SeaWorld, Magic Mountain, Getty Center and Villa, Knotts Berry Farm, San Diego Zoo, Hollywood, Rodeo Drive, Venice Beach, Staples Center, Dodger Stadium, Catalina Island, wine country and more.

What an AMAZING stay...

  • 5 of 5
We literally had only a few days to try to cram in a family vacation and with 4 small kids that usually means one thing - stress. I had rented vacation homes before and it doesn't really eliminate the headache in many cases despite being much more comfortable than a hotel. There are endless things that need to be packed, comforts you need to remember to bring, kids who won't eat anything but bagels, etc.

From the moment I inquired about the property everything seemed to be taken care of. Muriel was AMAZING and professional.

We met her at the front gate after driving through 5pm LA traffic - so I was expecting the worst and was already less than cheerful. She directed us to our parking spot (a miracle in LA to even have one) and then as our tired kids exited the van she cheerfully greeted every single one, shook their hands, and started answering all of their questions.

She checked us in and gave us the grand tour letting us know we had a huge selection of things at our disposal to make the vacation as relaxing as possible.

The condo was fantastic and VERY kid friendly. There were extra beach towels, paper plates, cups, etc. Fans for the bedrooms, DVDs, a book outlining all of the nearby attractions, and more. She had chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, and everything we could need.

It was one of the best vacations we had due to the attention to detail, warm reception, cleanliness of the condo (very important when your wife is like Monica from Friends), and constant assistance (at one point Muriel even walked down to the beach where we were camping out with directions to a great restaurant) provided by the Up and Away staff.

I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone looking for a fun beach vacation. The beach is literally 10 feet out the back door and it made all the difference being able to take care of everyone's needs.

Thank you Muriel and we will be back again next year for sure!!!

The Best Choice

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in the apartment for 3 weeks. It is well equipped, secured, clean and in a perfect location. Sleeping to the sound of the ocean's wave was so relaxing and the beach view was fantastic. All details were taken care of. We simply had everything we needed and more.

Family Visit!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was fantastic! The apartment is in a great location, secure, parking, beach access and internet just to name a few perks. We live overseas and travel to Long Beach a few times a year, this was our first time staying here and it was comfortable, clean and had everything you could possibly need. We normally have to do shopping for the basics, everything was already there. Cleaning service was good and access to the apartment was easy. We highly recommend this apartment to anyone even with children.

Tired but clean

  • 3 of 5
The building is old and smells musty, and the unit we stayed in was much the same.
It was clean, and well equipped, just old and in need of a reno. The price reflects this, however, so if you want modern and like new, shop elsewhere and pay more.
The owners were great to deal with. Responded well to all of our requests. A blocked sink was repaired right away, they delivered a package we had mailed to them for us, etc.
The location is nice, right on the beach.
The balcony gets direct sun the the late afternoon until an hour before sunset and has a side view of a small section of the beach. The giant mirror on the steet side of the balcony was kinda funny and provides the illusion that there are beach views are from both directions.
Street noise was a bit of an issue, as the single pane windows did little to block out the racket. Some people may not even notice it if they are used to urban living. Our house backs onto a green space and is very quiet so we are senstive sleepers. We used a fan (provided in the unit) for white noise which helped a lot and we slept OK.

Excellent Location and Well Appointed

  • 5 of 5
You won't find better accommodations for the price on the beach. The hostesses were awesome and met our every need. They will even pre-stock your fridge for you for a nominal fee. What an awesome vacation on the beach!

Owner's Response: We take pride in presenting our guests with clean, comfortable and fully-equipped accommodations. Our personal grocery service is a great convenience for those arriving late, without a car or for those who just want to get busy with a relaxing beachfront stay rather than an immediate supermarket run! It is our pleasure to meet the needs of our guests as best we can. We always appreciate hearing from guests regarding their stay.
