Why Owner chose Seal Beach

Great place to stay either on business or vacation. Close to freeways and attractions but yet a world away as you

walk long the beach or enjoys the sunrise and sunset on

one of the 3 balconies!

What makes this house unique

Quaint, family friendly seaside town where you can shop and dine on Main Street, stroll the Seal Beach pier and

walk barefoot along the seashore without getting in your car!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We are having a wonderful time walking down "memory lane" while staying in your lovely home. Seal Beach is a great beach community. We hope to return someday in the near future"

Fantastic stay at California Dreamin'

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect house for two families to share. The two master bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms were great for the adults. And our kids loved their bedroom with the upstairs loft and separate bath. The kitchen had everything we needed and we grilled and cooked almost every night. This home also has everything you need for the beach, which is right up the street. Thanks so much for a week of great memories! We hope to be back.

This is a wonderful beach house near the sand! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Susan, the owner, was great to communicate with. We had a yummy fruit tray with English muffins and jam waiting for us when we arrived. The house was spacious and clean. My grandchildren loved the loft and had slumber parties there. The decks all had gorgeous views. We had perfect weather and cool ocean breezes. The home is near Main Street and the Seal Beach pier. Some of the shops are cash only. Kids spent every day at the beach except when we went to Knotts which was about a 30 min. drive. Susan provided plenty of beach towels, boogie boards and sand toys. Kitchen was great! Overall it was an enjoyable, comfortable stay for all of us.

Great location in Seal Beach! Easy walk to the beach, a small kiddie park, to Main st, Koi restaurant and the marina.

Our kids loved the bedroom with the loft! We loved the kitchen, comfortable beds and accessible washer and dryer.

Wonderful communicating with the owner before, during and after. Easy check in and out. We had an excellent week and look forward to staying here again!

Wonderful vacation at a beautiful home at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this home several times and intend to return soon. My husband grew up in Seal Beach so we come and stay at "California Dreaming" a couple of times each year. The house is very spacious, comfortable, and is more beautiful than the pictures.

The kitchen has everything I have ever needed including cake pans, cookie sheets, crockpot, measuring cups, etc. They have just replaced the BarBQue grill with a new propane grill, which is much more convenient.

In the garage they have beach chairs, boogie boards, sand toys for the kids.

Since we fly in from another state having all of this available enhances our trip.

It is a quick walk across the street to the beach, and an eight block walk to the pier and Main Street. On this trip our rental car didn't leave the garage.

Susan is very easy to work with and responsive to our needs.

The sunsets from the rooftop deck are stunning.

If you stay at this home you will not be disappointed.
