CHARMING GARDEN COTTAGE NEAR THE BEACH

Long Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, Full Bath Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

This charming cottage is nestled in a lush tropical garden behind a classic Spanish Revival home in the heart of beautiful Belmont Heights. Ideally located three palm-lined blocks away from the restaurants, shopping and bars of trendy 2nd Street in Belmont Shore and six blocks from the beach, this delightful property is close enough to be walking distance from all the fun while far enough away to guarantee peace, quiet, plentiful parking, and easy access to freeways and all of Southern California.

Upon arriving at the property, you'll feel the California/Beach vibe inherent in the neighborhood. As you make your way up and through the wrought iron gates you'll get your first look at the lushness and warmth of the back yard area where your cottage awaits. Amid the palms, ponds and inviting seating areas in the back yard, you'll see your cottage, built in 1922, and all yours.

A private porch awaits you with a bistro set, the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee. Inside, the living area features a comfortable sitting area with a queen sleeper sofa that can sleep an additional 2 guests. The dining area overlooks the garden area, enjoys great morning sun and features french doors that open out onto the private porch area. If you're visiting on business, the executive-style desk area gives you ample space to spread out and work. When the day is done, a clever dry bar area holds ice bucket, glassware, wine opener, and shaker to help aid the transition from daytime to evening.

The bedroom is cozy and comfortable, featuring a queen bed with 500 count sheets, and a second flat-screen TV with cable and DVR (this time a 24'). The en suite bath is efficient but complete, with a tub/shower combination, pedestal sink and full closet.

The kitchen is great for those spending a little more time with us, as it features a full-sized refrigerator and range, microwave, coffee makers, toaster, and complete dishware, cutlery and cooking paraphernalia. Or, if you're not in the mood to cook, pick up something hot & tasty from the corner gourmet grocery just five doors down, or drop into one of more than 30 restaurants on 2nd street, 3 blocks away.

The shared garden/patio area is a place to enjoy the beautiful mild weather of Southern California. There's a waterfall and pond, firepit, and comfortable sitting areas. Nearby is a dining area seating six.

Best of all is the location of this little oasis--close to everything, but a haven of tranquility when you arrive home again. We look forward to welcoming you, and doing all we can to insure a fun and restful visit.

The Garden Cottage was charming . The cottage was well decorated and is six blocks to the beach.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Garden Cottage. The owners were very helpful and friendly. It is in a nice neighborhood with a little country store down the street which has excellent food. The garden patio area was beautiful. Belmont Shores was about four blocks which has many restaurants and shops. It also isn't far from Seal Beach which is a cute town.

We could have moved in to this charming, cozy cottage and hated to leave. Although compact, we never felt cramped and were able to enjoy a variety of spaces and garden views. Everything you need is available including lots of wonderful towels and toiletries. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets- ahhh! The garden is private and just stunning. We often enjoyed a glass of wine or a cup of coffee on the porch or on the patio- a perfect, relaxing retreat. The owners are barely visible but always available to take care of any questions or needs. They were so wonderful we hoped they would join us in the garden and sometimes they did. This was a joyful month in Long Beach and we plan to return.

We had a great time and did not want to leave. Our hosts were superb and the accommodation was wonderful. The garden area with the water features is a treasure.
The neighbors were fun and the neighborhood is delightful, walking distance to all that Belmont Shore has to offer, and the beach.

Garden Cottage Retreat

The cottage was beyond our expectations! We were thrilled with their hospitality and especially the "welcome basket" that awaited us on our arrival. They consistently inquired if we needed anything, and were helpful with maps and guiding us about the area. We enjoyed a delightful Halloween Eve with our hosts on their front patio. The amenitities provided us in the cottage left us lacking not a single item! Per previous reviews we did have dinner at Nicks on 2nd, imbibing in the fried deviled eggs as an appetizer and the butter cake for dessert. We left full and impressed with their service and excellent good food. Definitely need to make reservations! Per our host we had lunch at Claire's, next door to the Art Museum. Again, we were extremely pleased. The food and view can't be beat.

It is almost impossible to put into words the wonderful vacation we were able to have based from this lovely little oasis. Dennis and Mark are the best at making sure this little gem is absolutely perfect in every way. The hospitality is overwhelming and so sincere. Everything, and I mean everything is provided from pans to soap to snacks to nostalgia in this comfortable, clean and cozy bungalow. Even the pull out sofa was exceptionally comfortable! Patio is perfect for a relaxing glass of wine in the afternoon or cocktails by the fire in the evening! WOW. And a gas grill!! Location is ideal. So many things within walking distance. Great recommendations from Dennis on places to go, things to do and restaurants to enjoy. I have previous VRBO experience, and none of them even come close to this grand little getaway. Needless to say, our next stay is already booked and for a longer stay this time. What a great find. We look forward to seeing Dennis and Mark again at our home away from home. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful property!
