We are licensed by the City of Seal Beach for short term vacation rental
This spectacular vacation rental offers a perfect mix of modern contemporary living with a small beach-town feel. The house is ideally located in Old Town, Seal Beach. Main Street is just around the corner from the house and is where you will be greeted by old-world charm and friendly smiles. You will certainly enjoy the myriad of restaurants, unique gift shops, boutiques, and spas. At the end of Main Street is a historic wooden pier that has stood the test of time since 1906. A stroll on the pier is a must and on your way back, stop by Coldstone for a treat. A few steps further lead you to our vacation home.
From small town charm to modern living - the house is a two story contemporary structure, amidst velvety soft Zoysia grass, and is outlined by stainless steel and glass. The inside is immaculate and offers comfort and luxury. The acid-stained radiant-heated floor exudes a blanket of warmth that lures you into the cozy first floor. The leather sectional stretches from wall to wall and offers ample seating. Relax and enjoy the view of the beach or your favorite movie on the LCD TV.
Eat out or eat in - the kitchen is equipped with Gaggenau and Thermador appliances so you can be the chef. Create a special dinner moment for your family or hide out with a breakfast in bed. How about a romantic dinner on the roof deck at sun set?
The second floor has the smooth feel of bamboo wood flooring throughout. The bedrooms are spacious and inviting. The soft sound of crashing waves will lull you to sleep and wake you in the morning. The master bedroom has a gorgeous ocean view that can be enjoyed as you wake up in bed or from the private balcony with a cup-of-Joe. Head up to the roof deck and let your lungs enjoy the fresh air while the sun rays dance on your skin and your eyes take in the beautiful view of sparkling, crystal-blue ocean, Catalina Island, and gently swaying palm trees. On many days, the sky is flocked with kites and the ocean is teaming with surfers, sailboats and fun. In the evenings, a stunning sunset glows in the distance and will take your breath away. You can enjoy the view or join in on the activities - the beach is only a few steps away.
We encourage you to visit Seal Beach and invite you to stay at our vacation home.
My family has rented a variety of houses in a variety of places. By far, this was absolutely the best place we've ever stayed! We have always loved Seal Beach because it's a very friendly beach town. It's not too crowded and you don't have to worry about traffic. This house was in the perfect location. It was less than half a block to the beach, all the shops and restaurants on Main St and even a playground on the beach. The house is meticulously taken care of. It has everything you could possibly need for your vacation so you don't have to pack and drag along extra things with you. My daughter loved taking the wagon and loading it up with chairs and beach toys and heading to the beach. I loved being able to wake up in the morning and see the ocean from the master bedroom balcony. The patio on the roof was amazing!!! You can see everything from up there and it was a cozy, private spot to sunbathe. It was a very relaxing vacation and I would highly recommend this house to everyone!
The Swaying Palms was an outstanding base for our stay in the region. The location could not be better, a block off Main, steps from the pier and beach. Dan and Kim have created a beautiful home, full comfort and amenities, tastefully decorated and all upscale finishes. The spacious rooftop deck is a real treat... A truly memorable stay at the beach. Look forward to our return trip!
My family and I had the tremendous opportunity to stay in this gorgeous home while in between houses. Every day felt like a vacation!!! If we could give this house 100 stars, we would!!!
Here is the list of reasons that made this VRBO so incredible:
- THE VIEW! Incredible! Whether on the the front porch, looking out the family room window or from the roof top deck, the view was just spectacular!
- THE HOUSE! Amazing! Every single family member and friend regardless of age was simply stunned by beauty of the house. Pictures cannot even represent just how lovely it was and how many extra touches the house has. The house is also so well constructed.
- THE LOCATION! My goodness! You are literally across the street from the beach! We could literally hear the waves and smell the water. Plus, having the amenities of all of the fantastic shops and restaurants right around the corner was just wonderful. Main Street Seal Beach is so homey and the shops and services so useful. There is literally something for everyone! Cold Stone Creamery, which was just around the corner, was a top favorite in our family!
- THE NEIGHBORHOOD! So nice, friendly, and safe. We just loved the neighborhood and loved walking around and taking bike rides. We were initially curious what it would be like to have a little old Irish bar located down the alley from the house, but we literally never heard anything...even on St. Patrick's Day!
- THE OWNERS! So welcoming! The owners were so kind to us and went out of their to assist us and answer questions. They made the whole experience really wonderful and were just the best!
YOU MUST STAY IN THIS HOUSE! We recommend it to everyone!!!!! We miss this house!
*** You will NOT regret staying at this rental.
The house and location of it is perfect!
The house is very clean and kept up-to-date. Allergies can be a problem in our family, but we did not have any problem during our stay.
The location is... well, first in SEAL BEACH! A great well kept secret city in Orange County. If you have never been to Seal Beach, Main Street will give you that old beach town feel. It has not been commercialized like the other beach towns near by. And the people are so friendly.
The house location is great too. You are steps away from everything....Main Street, the Pier, the beach.... the grass area where the city has SO many activities.
Whether you are traveling with family (kids) or adults only this rental house will exceed your expectations.
OH... And the owners are great to work with too!
Our family was SO fortunate to find this house. We have stayed and looked at others in the area. Do not be fooled! This is the real deal.
WOW! That really SUMS this place up! I rented this place as a surprise vacation for my husband's 50th birthday. This place could not be more PERFECT! It is one house from the main street that runs along the beach. While its not "on the sand", in my opinion, the location is even BETTER because you have more privacy and less noise. This house has a 3rd level roof-top area that is better than the beach! You get all of the beauty of the ocean scenery and the sound of the waves without ever having to leave the house! The home is super modern/contemporary, has everything you could ever need or want. Sound system throughout the home, even on the roof-top! The dumb waiter came in very handy, especially considering that all 3 bedrooms and the roof-top deck are on the 2nd/3rd floors. Made it much easier to deliver coffee and other adult beverages to the upper levels. The owners are AWESOME! I had some concerns about "privacy" since the owner live to the adjoining unit but that was not an issue what-so-ever! They were close by if you ever needed anything but we had total and complete privacy! The home is within walking distance to everything! Tons of restaraunts/bars/shops, all within walking distance.....not several blocks away, I mean literally right there! And I never understood the true value of having a 2 car garage but for those of you who dont know this area very well, most homes do not have garages so permanent residents and vacationers are all seeking off street parking. Having a 2 car garage was PRICELESS! Washer/dryer comes in handy and makes it much easier to not over-pack! I cant say enough about Seal Beach, this wonderful home and the wonderful owners! We are already planning our next trip there in May 2014!
I am partial to Seal Beach having grown up here, and finding this rental on VRBO made for a perfect vacation for us! The house is roomy and open, tastefully appointed and decorated yet kid friendly. Our kids had a blast at the beach using the boogie boards and sand toys provided, and staying here made traveling with our infant SO much easier as Dan kindly provided a pack and play, stroller and many other kid "necessities" in the package. I look forward to making this a yearly visit!
