Great Weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sandy Suit for our Anniversary weekend. Lorrie responded promptly and was very accommodating since I added and extra night. The suit was as described, very clean and right on the beach! We did not add the extra space since we did not need it. The kitchenette was just enough for us, it had everything you need for morning coffee. Mark the manager was very helpful and recommended a Happy Hour spot which we walked to while enjoying the beach view. We also walked the next night to dinner on Pine Ave. which is around 30 mins. It's a very lively street with restaurants, bars and nightclubs. We loved that the suit was centrally located between shopping and entertainment. We definitely recommend it and would love to stay here again. Nothing beats sleeping to the sound of the waves,which made for a perfect weekend!

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.
