A native of Southern Calfornia, I like to spend as much time as possible in Long Beach. My condo is a very special little corner of Long Beach.
I can help with planning visits to nearby areas of interest including San Diego, Santa Barbara, Palm Springs and Las Vegas.
I grew up in the Long Beach area and I am familiar with all of Los Angeles.
Some of my favorite places in Long Beach include:
*walking my dog in Rainbow Harbor
*exploring Belmont Shore
*watching the nightly sunset from the balcony
*nighttime dinner or drinks on Pine Street
*take in a movie at the newly renovated Pike Theaters
In the middle of it all, however, secluded and relaxing, it offers the best of...everything!

Our host was friendly! This was our first experience renting on VRBO and it went perfectly! The condo is adorable and the location is perfect. A few minutes walk gets you to the downtown restaurants, Pine Street, The Pike etc. Looking forward to returning.
Very welcoming. The condo was very clean and exactly like described. Tom is easy to work with and has lots of information regarding local attractions and restaurants. Loved it!
Our trip was amazing. The place is adorable with lots of afternoon sun, views andwalking close by to everything. The condo was clean and well kept. Definitely would stay again!
The second floor apartment, which has 2 underground parking spaces, is modern and spacious. There are 2 good sized bedrooms and bathrooms with plentiful storage. The large lounge is bright getting sunshine all afternoon until sundown as does the balcony area.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could realistically need -pots, pans, cookware, implements, and gadgets. There was nothing I missed during our 6 week stay and I did cook extensively for ourselves and friends. The oven, hob and microwave were all very simple to use. The pantry was fully stocked with a comprehensive range of herbs, spices, sauces and dressings as well as some staples such as rice and pasta -this was really appreciated.
Similarly, various kitchen and bathroom cleaning products were also available as were washing machine and dishwasher detergents. The dishwasher, washer and dryer were also simple to use and efficient.
Facilities such as broadband and HBO TV presented no problems with our phones, Ipads and Laptops all synching up without difficulty.
The central a/c is very effective cooling the whole apartment in minutes.
The apartment block is well equipped with gym, sauna and swimming pool as well as several communal rooms/areas.
The 24 hour concierge staff were all unfailingly helpful and pleasant. We had friends visit us on a number of occasions and the concierge always ensured they were able to park and got them up to the apartment.
The block is situated an easy couple of minutes walk from the Pike with its variety of restaurants, bars, an aquarium and a great cinema. A few more minutes walk gets you to the downtown restaurants, convention centre etc.
The handover given by Tom the owner when we arrived was comprehensive covering not only the apartment itself but also the amenities and concierge service -even the communal bike garage (where there are 2 bikes you can use).
In addition to the handover Tom has also produced a comprehensive manual, which covers everything you need to know about the apartment and complex, which we found very useful. It also contained flyers for local attractions, restaurants and so on. Tom kept in regular contact via email and advised us in advance of things such as fire alarm tests which was appreciated.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the apartment, it really was a home from home - our friends loved visiting us there too. We would absolutely recommend staying there and indeed we look forward to doing so again.
Tom was great to work with and very quick on communication. The Condo is very neat, clean, and well appointed. What a great location in Long Beach, CA! Highly recommend staying here!
Very clean, comfortable, and with everything you could need. Excellent location, with a couple of restaurants and market within walking distance. Tom was always quick to respond and very helpful! Would stay here again.
A favorite sea-worthy attraction is the city's Aqua Bus, a 40-foot water taxi that serves the city's main attractions, such as the Queen Mary and Aquarium of the Pacific. The city also sponsors AquaLink, a high-speed 60 foot catamaran that offers service to nearby Alamitos Bay,
which has marinas, restaurants and water sports.
There are several options for getting on the water at a cost, like Whale Watching, Dinner Cruises, Sport Fishing, Private Cruises, Harbor Cruises, a Murder Mystery Cruise
and Boat Rentals.
Some bars & restaurants within walking distance from the condo..(but not limited to!) include:
California Pizza Kitchen,
The Dueling Pianos,
George's Greek Cafe,
Savilla Spanish Cusine,
and Buno's Italian Restaurant.
Grocery shopping is located in the recently remodeled Von's Supermarket on Atlantic Blvd also downtown 4 blocks away just off Ocean Blvd.
The famous Queen Mary is a hearty walk although I suggest driving. Two other places of interest easiest by car are both the Maya Hotel and the Reef Restaurant.
The new 'Outlets at the Pike' are leasing 330,000 sq feet of retail space. Currently, the Restoration Hardware outlet has opened and soon the following outlets: H & M, Sperry, Coach, J. Crew and a variety of others coming soon.
Successful Long Beach shopping areas include the Promenade (located within walking from the condo), Belmont Shore, Retro Row, and the Arts District (also walkable from the condo).
The Long Beach Grand Prix consumes Downtown LB for a long weekend in April.
Other downtown LB activities include: the Zombie Walk, Pride and the world series of Volleyball each year.
This Long Beach Vacation Rental is perfect for vacation or business, blending perfect design, location and affordability.
