About Doris Bartlett

My husband and I are retired. My husband was a vice president of human resources for major corporations. He grew up in Tucson, Arizona and graduated from the University of Arizona. My background was in payroll and also human resources. We have 6 children and 14 grandchildren. (a lot). We love this home and have had many wonderful holidays and dinners with family and friends. We entertain regularly and have had anywhere from 10 to 100 people at the house at one time. We also have a beautiful home in the Palm Springs area (the desert of southern california).

Doris Bartlett purchased this house in 1996

Why Doris Bartlett chose Long Beach

I grew up in the Long Beach area and loved it. It is very rare to find a 100 year old, 2 story home with an attic and a full cellar (part of which we have made into a wine cellar) in Southern California. The home has history that dates back to World War II. It is a historical landmark in Long Beach. We have a marble fireplace in the living room for those cooler winter nights.

What makes this house unique

This charming home sleeps 8 - 10 people. There is a fenced and gated patio that runs the full length of the front of the house. We normally have our coffee out there and drinks in the afternoon. There are 2 tables there with seating for 8. The home is centrally located to many attractions. You can be in Hollywood within the hour, Santa Monica in 45 minutes, Malibu within an hour. Santa Barbara is a 2 hour drive, but well worth it. Then heading south, you can reach Orange County (Irvine) within 45 minutes or Laguna Beach within 45 minutes. San Diego is an hour and a half away. For those surfers of the world, you can be surfing within 15 minutes in Huntington Beach or further down the coast in San Clemente within 45 minutes.

This home was a lovely "home away from home", and completely met our vacation needs! Our families converged on Long Beach for the International Marathon last weekend, and this home was on the marathon route...perfect for spectating, and walking to/from the start/finish line for participants! We had 4 couples and 2 dogs in our party, and the ample space and accommodations that this home offered were terrific! The beds, and the living room furniture/seating were very comfortable...I was especially impressed with the quaility of sheets and bath towels! If this home had any shortcomings, it was only two: the master bath had a leaky shower (which I understand will be immediately addressed by the owners); and the traffic noise (from Ocean Blvd.). Overall, this beautiful, historic home was well-stocked, comfortable, centrally located, pet-friendly, and worth re-visiting:)!! I highly recommend it for large families and/or large group gatherings!

Great location, big home!

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time renting a vacation home online. Joe and Doris made it very easy and was a very welcoming, especially since we had a late arrival. The home is beautiful! We had 4 adults and 2 teenagers which the home accommodated all of us and giving us our own separate sleeping space.

We loved sitting on the veranda each morning and night having quality family time. The weather was unseasonably warm and the house does not have A/C but the breeze from the Ocean helped and the owners tried to accommodate us the best they could by offering fans and even calling to check up on us. Everything you can imagine is available to use, if needed. The home is located a block away from the Ocean and was easily accessible. The house comes with off street parking, which is a premium in Long Beach!

We came to Long Beach mainly for a family wedding but was able to also visit Chip Foose's shop in Huntington Beach (Overhaulin TV Star), The Aquarium of the Pacific, The Queen Mary, Sea Lion Boat Tour (Balboa Island), The pier in Newport Beach, swimming in the Ocean. There are so many activities/attractions that we couldn't do all of them in one week.

If you have never seen the sunset over the pacific ocean, it is one of the most beautiful sights you can see!

Thank you Joe and Doris for the use of your magnificent home!

Wonderful stay in Long Beach

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 had a terrific stay at your home. Roomy, comfortable and we were not disappointed with anything. Joe met us there and showed us around and later we met Jeff who was friendly and helpful. We were in Long Beach for a wedding, but we had time to visit all around the area. This location was perfect for us and centrally located to many beaches and sightseeing adventures such as the Queen Mary and the fantastic aquarium. We began and ended our days on the front porch area. There was a lot of traffic on Ocean Blvd., but we were so exhausted after our long days that it was sort nice to fall asleep to.

I doubt that we will ever seek out a motel again after our first time renting a vacation home.

Totally awesome place to relax!

  • 5 of 5
We were in Long Beach for a convention. It was an easy walk on the beach to the convention center every day. Owners were very personable and gave a great welcome. House was very well maintained and was stocked well for cooking, ample room for 8 adults and 2 kids. After cooking most of our meals on the bbq grill,w e ate on the front patio. Only drawback was street noise (we live in the country).

Notes:
Only 2 mission revival homes made it through the 1920's Long beach earthquake and ours is one of them. It is a historical landmark. We have a picture on the fireplace mantel showing the house back in the early days. Just a little tidbit: the man who built the house was called James Beer. Because of that my husband always refers to our house as the 1st beer house in Long Beach.
