It is located just across the street from the beach and pier and a 1 block stroll to Main Street. There is an adventurous sandy beach playground just across the street. Seal Beach has been called the 'Mayberry by the Sea' because of the friendly and charming atmosphere that Old Town provides.

About Kim Gasper

The Gasper family includes David, Kim and Tori. We live on-site and are thrilled to share our lovely Seal Beach location with you, your family and friends! We have lived in Seal Beach since 1995. David was a volunteer fireman in Seal Beach for many years. We absolutely love our quaint little town and know that you too will share in this love once you visit. We have found that our life in Seal Beach keeps us outdoors...walking, riding, or just laying in the sun watching Tori enjoy the beach. People ask us where we are going on vacation and we tell them that we live in the best vacation destination to be found...why would we leave? Hope to see you very soon.

Kim Gasper purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Kim Gasper chose Old Towne

When you arrive'll see why! We are directly across from the beach, pier, playground and a block from Main Street. Our location is second to none!

What makes this apartment unique

We are directly across the street from the park, the ocean/beach, & pier. We are only 1 block off Main Street where all the Old Town shopping and dining is located. We are the location of choice!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing location right across the street from the park, pier, beach and playground. Main Street with all its dining and shopping is a block away. Our hosts, David & Kim, provided everything a family would need for a vacation dream--beautiful furnishings, fully stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, beach chairs, umbrella, ice chests, sand toys, beach cruisers, surf board, boogie boards--you name it, they have provided it. Thanks so much!

A perfect place to spend time at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here before and love the convenience of downtown Seal Beach and just being across the street from the beach. The apartment is very well equipped and very comfortable. It was a family visit, so we spent time just hanging out, eating, talking, and walking the beach and pier. I would highly recommend it.

Very clean and well stocked with everything imaginable

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect! We walked to the main street in just two minutes. So many great restaurants and shops!

The beach is right across the street. We were visiting so that we could attend our daughter's graduation at CSULB. So nice to be out of busy Long Beach area and feel like we were on a vacation. Seal Beach is charming! My favorite activity was riding bikes to Sunset Beach How nice to have bikes available duting the stay:) A+ A+!

We just returned from our second time staying in this beautiful rental! This is an ideal location next to the beach and charming Main Street. The condo has all of the comforts of home and is well stocked with everything that you could want for a beach vacation. Everything is clean and the bed is very comfortable. Kim is very welcoming and helpful. We love Seal Beach and we will return to this rental again!
