FOR THE ECONOMICALLY CONSCIOUS: A GUEST HOUSE WITH YOUR COMFORT IN MIND

Long Beach Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 bedroom, 1 half bathroom, Sleeps 3

Our circa 1920 Red Casita has been fully re-modeled for your home-away-from-home comfort. Nestled in the back yard of one of California Heights’ oldest Craftsman houses, the Red Casita is close to freeways and transportation, but part of a beautiful neighborhood with tree-lined streets and historic homes. California Heights was awarded the First and Grand Prizes of Neighborhoods USA's (NUSA) 2012 National Conference, and was featured in Sunset Magazine’s “10 Most Desirable Neighborhoods” write-up in 2004. It is conveniently located between Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Head to the beach for a day in the sun, to Naples Island for a gondola ride, to one of several theme parks, or simply out your front door to enjoy lounging on one of two brick patios. The possibilities are endless.

The Red Casita is a studio apartment which features a queen size bed, twin sleeper sofa, 40” flat screen TV with Verizon Fios, DVD player, WiFi, Ethernet, and access to two brick patios with BBQ. Efficiency kitchen features microwave/convention oven, toaster, electric skillet, coffee maker, refrigerator, and all cooking/dining necessities.

BEST TRAVEL CHOICE I'VE MADE!

This property fit our needs perfectly and it's obvious that much thought was put into making the guest's stay welcoming and convenient.

It is at a great, central location and parking or privacy was never an issue!

We highly recommend the Red Casita to anyone who wants an affordable place to stay without the hassles of a hotel.

BUSINESS TRIP

  • 5 of 5
Outstanding accommodation in a nice neighbourhood. Great communication from very personable owners (on site) who were helpful but in no way intrusive. Spotlessly clean and we'll appointed self-contained apartment. Ideally situated for my needs: within reasonable walking distance of Metro Blue Line; Bixby Knolls shops & restaurants just a few minutes away on foot. A perfect respite from busy day for the travel weary (from UK). I'd bring the family next time without hesitation.

GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I stayed the weekend in LB at the Red Casita for Pride Weekend. We loved it!! We were only 10 min car ride to Downtown and away from all the action so we could decompress after our day of fun in the sun. We got to meet the owners quickly and they were so nice. Would recommend this property to my friends as well as stay here again.

DELIGHTFUL LITTLE STUDIO!

  • 5 of 5
The red casita fit our needs perfectly! The two of us were welcomed with wine and chocolates. The studio was very clean and cozy! The bathroom had lots of storage for toiletries and a great shower with hot water and strong water pressure.

The evenings were a bit cool but they had a small electric heater plugged in which warmed it up a bit. I do recommend wearing socks or slippers because the floors that are not covered with carpet are a bit chilly.

The location was great, close to the 405 which made travelling convenient. Parking was sometimes a little bit difficult when we got back late but we were always able to find a place nearby.

A binder full of restaurant recommendations and other useful information was also provided. It helped us find a great little coffee shop, It's a Grind, which we visited every morning for coffee and pastries.

A delightful little studio which I would recommend to friends and family. I hope to visit again!

Our only complaint is that we didn't stay longer!

GREAT STAY IN A CONVENIENT LOCATION!!

  • 5 of 5
We had three people staying at the Red Casita and all I can say is that it was Perfect! All we needed was a place to lay our head at night and to get cleaned up before we went on to our next excursion. It is conveniently located next to the 405, which made getting anywhere you needed to go very nice (minus the traffic, lol) The communication between the owner and my party was seamless every step of the way. When we first arrived, there was a bottle of wine welcoming us on the table. The place was very clean and provided us with everything we needed for the stay. The neighborhood felt very safe and we even took the bus to downtown Long Beach for a night. If you are ever in the Long Beach area and need a safe, clean, affordable place to stay, the Red Casita is a Great! Thank you Esther for the wonderful experience and we hope to stay again next time we are in the Los Angeles area! :)
