A Wonderful 60th Birthday Family Vacation
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!
