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 Seal Beach

When you arrive here...you'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!

The location was fantastic and the unit itself was well kept and we'll laid out. Hard to think of how it could be better. it was excellent to have amenities such as the boogie boards and especially the surfboard and even wetsuits! This place is superb.

Nice vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

The unit was nice and very clean! It had everything you would need for your vacation. Seal Beach was beautiful and felt very safe. It was a family community that really had a hometown feel to it. We absolutely loved our stay.

What a perfect little spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at the Oleander, but our 4th time visiting Seal Beach. It was lovely and a great location. My husband, 14 year old son and I thoroughly enjoyed the little town of Seal Beach. The cottage was as described and fully equipped for everything you might need to stay at a beach. Everything had its place and every place had its things, all well labeled so very easy to find and use. We were so pleasantly surprised and realized next time we don't need to pack anything but our personal things. The property was very clean and well maintained and so easy to get to and froe. a lovely happening location yet peaceful and safe. Kimberly was very accessible and prompt when we need help with our television (because we didn't know what we were doing).

Even though we had a fully equipped kitchen we didn't get a chance to use it as all the restaurants on Main Street were so amazing. Too many to try and too little time.... all within one block of the cottage, as were the beach.

We definitely recommend this place and we definitely will rent it again.

Phenomenal location! Very clean & CUTE!

  • 5 of 5

THANK YOU DAVID & KIM!! Best vacation of my life! We loved being walking distance to such a lovely beach and amazing restaurants. Your place is so very beautiful, organized, and feels like home away from home. Thank you so much for all the amenities, they really added so much more to our trip and made less to pack. I'm so in love with that bed too! I'm ready to come back!! Best nights of sleep I've ever had. Thank you for all the information on the area, it was so helpful. I really, really can't wait for our next trip! So many of my dreams came true that week. Thank you for sharing your awesome property with us!
