I had to come back down recently to finish a project nearby, and this proved to be the perfect place to spend time off the job. The neighborhood is great with the beach one block away, the start of downtown 5 blocks away, and a great neighborhood taco and pizza shop 2 blocks away. The location is ideal.
The apartment is also really clean and updated. You can tell an effort is made by the host to keep up on it. Speaking of the host, they are very friendly, welcoming, and responsive. A basket of snacks and cheese is made up for your arrival, and lots of bottled water is provided as well, though the water from the tap is plenty fine to drink. Any time you needed something from the host, which isn't often, they were quick to reply and help.
For one person, the unit was plenty spacious, and I think it would be fine for a couple's vacation as well.
The only drawback of the unit was that I had to spend so much time working instead of enjoying it. I recommend it to anyone and hope I can return sometime with my wife.
We could not believe our luck when we checked into Cindi's immaculate beach cottage. The location is AMAZING. Perfect if you want to travel up and down PCH to visit all of SoCal's beaches, or if you just want to walk to HB everyday. Walking distance to restaurants, cafes, shops, Main St. Comfortable murphy bed, cute balcony, stocked kitchenette fun rooftop hangout. Great bathroom and shower. Very clean, private entry, access to washer dryer was very convenient. She even helped our daughter out with a wrap for her sprained hand after surfing one day! Thanks for a wonderful stay. We are hoping to be back in July '16.
I am so please we decided to stay at Surf's up. It was perfect in every way. We wanted for nothing. Our host Cyndi was amazing and it was a delight to stay in her property. Everywhere was so clean and spotless. Beautiful soft linens and towels. The bathroom was like a spa area. Lovely sundeck on the top for relaxing. The beach is literally 3mins walk and Main Street between 5 and 10mins walk depending on your pace. My husband was working in Santa Ana so I had no need at all for the car. We did not have one bad meal out in Main St but if I had to choose a favourite it would be Sparks Woodfire Grill. Amazing food and wine.
I have no hesitation in recommending this property to anybody, infact I found it very hard to leave and will return in a flash if the opportunity arises.

We absolutely love this place, perfect location, Cindi is an awesome host and was so helpful! great getaway for couples!
This was our first VRBO rental and it was perfect. I feel that's it a lot nicer than it looks in the pictures. Everything you need is in the apartment. If there's something missing, you can be assured that Cindi will probably have it for you. Cindi was an awesome host. She will make sure you have everything you need and that you are comfortable for your entire stay. She even called us on a chilly evening to make sure we had enough blankets. I don't think you'll find a better person to rent from. Thank you, Cindi!
The location is perfect. The unit is a very short block from the beach and a 5 min walk to the cool downtown area. They're doing some new construction between the unit and the beach so you can no longer see the ocean as well as you can in the pictures. You can still see and hear it from the back deck though. We wish we could've gotten more use out of the private patio on the roof but it rained a lot so unfortunately we couldn't. We spent a lot of time on Main Street in Huntington Beach. It rained 3 out of the 4 days when we were there so we usually drove instead of walked. We would've walked every time if it was decent weather. Here are some of things we really enjoyed and would recommend to future guests.
5th Street Bar & Grill (Main Street): Great Service. Good music (live on weekends) Awesome Pizza. Loved the Pepperoni Chips. :-)
Freds (Main Street): Cool mexican atmostphere. Good chips & Salsa. Service wasn't great
Baja Sharkees (Main Street): Young good looking crowd. Fun people here. Very busy. Very small. Good music.
Beach Front Bar (Main Street): This is a great bar and good atmosphere. I would recommend this place.
Jimmy Kimmel (Hollywood) Tickets are free and the experience was awesome. Right across from Dolby Theatre so there's lots to do before and after. It's definitely worth the hour drive.
Other places that we went to but would NOT recommend:
Hurricanes (Main Street): The bar smells bad and very loud rap music. No good. I wanted to leave the minute I walked in.
Perqs (Main Street): Small and boring. Didn't care for the atmosphere. Stayed for a shot and then left.
Zimbala (Main Street): This place is lame. It's for boring people. No music. Drinks are a million dollars. Don't go here.
CenterField Bar (Beach Street): Service not great. A lot of regulars. Teryaki wings were bad. I wouldn't recommend this place.
If you are wanting to stay in Huntington Beach, THIS is the perfect place. A beautiful studio with a balcony and rooftop deck, fireplace...it's fantastic! You are steps from the beach and Main Street where all the action is. All you need is in the apartment from beach towels, hair dryer to bikes- you feel very much at home. Cindy was awesome as well- so nice, welcoming and helpful. The next time we go back to Huntington Beach, we will definitely stay here! We didn't want to leave!
4 blocks away from pier, shops, restaurant, ,, About 26 steps away from the sand. A bike ride to other piers and other beach cities. We are also on a bus route in case you do not want to rent a car.
