What amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

I love the place! Great location and the unit is literally on the beach. Mark and Lorrie were super helpful. I felt in home!

I rode my bike and walked everywhere: from my favorite coffee shops to juice bars. From the Pike mall to Alamitos Bay, from the marina to all restaurants; all connected by the beach path.

I can't wait t go back there!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sandy Suite for two days and it was perfect. Right on the ocean, quiet, and well kept. The only hassle was parking, but we expected that due to good communication from the property manager and past reviews. If you are looking for a great breakfast spot check out The Breakfast Bar just down the street, excellent food and service. We would recommend this VRBO to all our friends and family.

Nice property in great location

  • 4 of 5

Very helpful staff. The private patio was a selling point. Great restaurants close by, within walking distance. Safe area of Long Beach for walking. Good one or two people. Would be cramped for more.

If you smoke and have to be ON the beach

  • 2 of 5

You will like this okay. We do love the beach however this location was not great: a lot of noise from the beach parties (and we like to sleep with windows open to hear the waves- not possible). In addition all access to the beach and smoking patio is by this apartment!s poorly constructed front door. And did I mention this is a basement? The kitchen is very strange in that it is split by a long hallway. Their is no stove/oven and the refrigerator is at one end of the hall while the main sink, counters and cabinets are at the other. If you decide to eat out, it's a long walk to restaurants One very good thing is the very comfortable bed with great linens. We could see the location and structural limitations with this unit and might have been happier if the price matched the value received.

What an amazing place to stay - you wake up in the morning grab a cup of coffee and walk out on the beach. We rented bikes and rode the boardwalk, went kayaking and walked to the convention center and dinner. Everything you need is available even down to paper cups for coffee and quarters if you want to do laundry.

I will definitely be back for a visit to play or just relax. LOve LOve LOve this special beach retreat.

The attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

We booked two units for a mini family vacation stay, all the attention to detail was in the name of comfort. Kitchen utensils, DVDs, laundry, bbq, morning coffee on the beach and even good grocery bags- long beach is green and this helps with store trip. Grocery store conveniently close as is 7-11.

The Beach is right outside, bike path or stroll to restaurants or a cycle. Some units come with parking but street isn't bad but like any beach town takes some patience.
