We spent a wonderful week at the Penthouse, a true respite to "get away from it all." The views are breathtaking and you literally do step out onto the sand from the back door entrance. For us, it almost seemed like a private beach as there were not many folks on this stretch. No shells on this beach which was sort of a bummer for us beachcombers, but the views of the harbor and Queen Mary more than made up for that. Definitely could have some water play and boogie boarding and you are a short walk from the Village shops and restaurants. We event rented a bike surrey. How fun is that! The owners here have seen to every need. Was great having the beach chairs and towels to use. Beds and couch were comfy. Our kids loved the twin bed set up and we all had lots of room to spread out. Carpets could use a good clean but this is a beach house so we sort of expect that. Lots of privacy, felt very secure. Really did feel like a second home. Nothing like falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. We will be back for sure! Thank you for your hospitality.
My family enjoyed our four day stay at the condo. The surrounding area is great for excursions. The condo was clean and comfortable. The view of the beach is nice; however the beach is not suitable for swimming or any sort of water play.
This was our second visit and have already booked our third. Location, facilities and helpfulness of staff are excellent.
Luxury accommodation with fantastic views. The little extras such as providing beach towels, beach chairs. boogie board and a beach umbrella made all the difference. Local information such as shops and petrol stations were also provided. My family and I spent a wonderful week here, enjoying coffee and breakfast on the balcony watching the world go by along the boardwalk. The only down side to the week was the tight squeeze parking a large car in the garage when it was full, this happened only once or twice in the week. The night before we left we were lucky enough to see dolphins about 20-30ft off shore. If we ever go back to Long Beach we will definitely be staying here again.
We had a wonderful time at the Penthouse - the pictures accurately portrayed the unit and we were very comfortable! My experience working to secure the rental as well as service during our stay was exceptional. Having mid-week housekeeping service was a very nice touch. I would definitely recommend the Penthouse! The unobstructed view and beach access made it nice to sit on the patio, or quickly be down on the sand. There are so many things to do nearby - we took a harbor cruise, visited the Long Beach Aquarium, kayaking in Sunset Beach, Surf Championship in Huntington Beach, shopping in Naples and Seal Beach! LA was close as well as Orange County for day trips.
My whole family had a wonderful time staying in this condo for a week in Long Beach, CA. We visited Disneyland, which is only 30 minutes away, and also went to the Long Beach Aquarium, a short 1 1/2 mile drive. Both were excellent! This property is only a short walk or ride to many excellent restaurants, like the Yard House & Buona Gente, which we thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend. My 7 year old granddaughter loved playing on the beach, which is just outside the back door. They had numerous beach chairs for us to use and the back patio or our balcony were excellent to sit on to watch the waves roll in. Plus, there was an outdoor shower right by the back door to wash off the sand from your feet & body before going inside. Our condo was very clean and equipped with everything that we needed in the kitchen plus extra items such as: paper plates, plastic cups, Saran Wrap, Aluminum Foil, coffee packets (both regular & decaf.), filters (if you brought your own coffee), creamer, sugar, sweetener, paper towels, dish washing detergent, etc. They even left quarters & detergent to use in the washer & dryer. Plus, there were DVDs, binoculars, books, magazines, games and two binders of suggestions for activities in the area & of restaurant menus. You don't find these extras at other rental properties. We were also pleasantly surprised to find fresh flowers on the kitchen table and chocolates on our pillows when we arrived. The sheets, bedding & towels were of the highest quality and the mattresses were extremely comfortable to sleep on. Also, the owner gave us a special code to use at Vonn's, a grocery store very close to the condo, so we could get a discount on our groceries. We used a key code to access the building and condo so it made it easy for each family member to come & go as they pleased. And there was parking under the building, so we didn't have to find parking on the street. Another plus is that this company was very easy to deal with and responded back to my questions in a timely fashion. There were no problems with my booking, and since they do everything on-line, we had all of the information we needed, and were promised, a week before our vacation. The only negatives were the carpet had a lot of spots and needed cleaning and the couch was not comfortable to sit on, but those are small things that can be corrected easily. I would definitely recommend this property to others that want a nice, quiet, relaxing vacation on the beach!
Long Beach is an ideal location for day trips up to LA and down to San Diego. Popular attractions such as Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park, SeaWorld, Universal Studios, Hollywood, Rodeo Drive, Getty Museum, and much more are all close by.
