Darling home in a lovely location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great trip with our 2 little girls! The location was perfect because we could walk to the beach or several restaurants and shops. The neighborhoods were beautiful and quiet. The house itself was clean with fun decorations, and the owners were very responsive to questions.

Cons: Not particularly suitable for small children (beds too high to get into, tempting décor within reach, few small spoons/forks, mostly glass or ceramic dishes). An overwhelming amount of dos and don'ts. Shared outdoor living space/garage/laundry.

But it is difficult to relax anywhere with a 3 year old, so I would still definitely recommend this rental to anyone else without kids or older kids. And, thank you, Kye for the cookies and all your help! The booster seat, plastic step stool, and beach wagon were invaluable.

Great beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the Starfish Cottage. The place is so cute with all of the decorations and personal touches. The beds are comfortable and the walking distance to the beach as well as grocery stores (and Urgent Care especially if you have young kids) is especially convenient. We loved our stay and hope to be back. Thanks Kye & Elena!

Cute beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great beach cottage. Short walk to the beach. Towels and chairs and boogie boards were available at the house for our use at the beach. House was the perfect size for our family of four. We spent a couple days at the Disney parks. Kye mentioned using UBER car service to take us to the park and pick us up. That was the best info. It was a little more money than driving ourselves but it saved so much time and hassle of parking and taking shuttles highly recommended using UBER. Thanks for the great info and thanks for helping make a fun spring break.

Owner's Response: Stephanie & family: We are so happy you enjoyed our cottage and Seal Beach for your Spring Break vacation. I hear of more local people using UBER to the parks - this saves time from parking and riding the tram to more time spent in the park. So happy it worked out. Have a great Summer and on your next family adventure your Home Away from Home will be waiting., Cheers Elena

Holiday Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home for my family during Christmas. It couldn't have been any better.

Beautifully decorated and very clean with a great location.

The owners go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable.

Would definitely rent again.

** Two Bed Cottage. The Starfish Cottage is within a 5 min walk to the Start of the SEAL BEACH 10k race -- Always in April. :) Bring your bikes, beach attire and have fun!!! We have a kite store on Main Street for more fun..... We are located 7 tp 9 homes to the Boardwalk / Pacific Ocean. A quick walk to the beach. We do not have a view, but you are just steps away.

Seal Beach is situated perfectly between Los Angles & Orange County for day adventures up and down the coast or head to the mountains. Many vacationers know Seal Beach as the place to arrive - unload the car and just walk everywhere within minutes from our 4 Beach Cottages.

* Disney Land? Many folks Uber / Lyft to save time from parking. Think of the time you will save from not having to park - taking the tram and standing in the waiting lines. You will gain one hour in time with Uber / Lyft to the park& another hour when you leave. You have been in lines all day. Now its time to go home and relax.

We are very close to the LA parks and museums as well. Spend a day in LA just checking out the sights - getting lost in a cool way while LA shopping- dining or just exploring the areas.

*San Diego on your list? We are about 1 1/2-hour drive. Well worth the drive.

*Catalina Island is just 25 miles off Seal Beach - go for the day out of New Port or Long Beach. (worth doing)

* Sports - Dodges - Angles - Lakers & Anaheim Ducks are all close sporting events from Seal Beach.

* Concerts - plays? We have many venues close to Seal Beach. How cool to see a concert while on vacation? Try- Segerstrom Concert Hall - Anaheim Concert Hall - Long Beach Entertainment Center - Long Beach State University (Carpenter Performing Arts)

* Golf - Many close locations to Seal Beach

All 4 Cottages are located just steps to the Pacific Ocean - take some time to just relax and put your toes in the water and then take a nap on the beach. Wake up & then walk to Main Street to eat. Come relax and make some memories. Your vacation is your journey to relaxing times at the beach.

- The Pineapple Cottage (one Bed)

- The Pineapple Bungalow (2Bed)

- The Starfish Cottage (one Bed)

- The Starfish Bungalow (2 bed)

Don’t forget about the Seal Beach 10 & 5k in April/May. The Kite festival (check out the kite store on Main Street) and Free music in the park during the summer months. We look forward to seeing you soon along the Pacific Coast.

*We are one of the 13 City APPROVED - weekly Vacation Rentals in Seal Beach.

Please book an approved home so you have a comfortable stay.
