Even Better than Expected!

  • 5 of 5

No crowded beaches here, just a quiet, really clean place to open the door/windows and listen to the ocean waves. Lovely interior, especially the kitchen. Bathrooms are retro/dated but who cares when you get a view like this? City lights of Long Beach and cruise ships docking, Queen Mary and Ocean right outside your window & balcony. There was some street noise from the master bedroom but not bad. Walking distance to the Convention Center for events. Internet was sloooow but we figured out that if only one of us was on a laptop at a time, it worked fine. Also worked on cell phones well. Mariel was wonderfully helpful. We loved this place and are already looking forward to returning.

Warm, cozy, comfortable secure place on the beach with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

Great beach access and walking path, location is great, short Uber rider or nice walk to the local spots. Try the restaurant "Padre", it was great. Morning coffee on the balcony was wonderful as were the sunsets. Everything in the unit was clean, and worked great. The unit and the building are clean and secure. ,,, parking with the unit was a plus,,, parking spot is a little tight, but no problem unless you have a large vehicle. Mark gave us a great tour of the property and had all the info we would need for our stay. We will be back!

Wonderful location, beautiful beachfront and very nice accommodations for four.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Penthouse 5 nights for a family get away and birthday celebration. The condo was very spacious and had a wonderful view of the beach. We were very pleased with the accommodations and special extras (beach and BBQ accessories). Parking was tight but very much appreciated, as local parking in the area is limited.
