Los Angeles County Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Guest house, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6))

This quiet location is just steps to the Ocean, yards to the Bay, and 5 minutes to all the shops, restaurants, boutiques, and night life that Belmont Shore has to offer!

For the adventurous types you are steps from renting a Kayak, SUP, or sail boat, you can Kite Surf, play basketball, handball, racquetball, roller hockey, beach volleyball, or for the little ones there's a playground.

For the not so adventurous, you can lie on the beach and watch! 2 beaches to choose from! One on the Bay (more active) and one on the Pacific Ocean (very quiet with lots of space to spread out!)

Enjoy a stroll along the sparkling waters of the Naples Canal, located just across the bay, or better yet, take a Gondola Ride through the canals, and dream of Italy!

When you are done with fun in the sun, take a leisurely walk to all that Belmont Shore's 2nd Street has to offer, with it's many boutiques, restaurants, coffee and ice cream shops, and Night Clubs, in Belmont Shore or grab your favorite beverage and stroll the friendly neighborhood or sit on the beach and watch the sunset.

Charming shabby chic cottage, light and bright, located behind our beachfront home. 1 bedroom cottage with murphy bed and sofa bed.

No party animals and no smokers! This is quiet residential neighborhood and though it is the perfect vacation spot, you will probably be the only ones who are actually on a vacation. We would love to have you stay with us!!!

A Dream Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to begin! I'm over-the-moon happy with our stay. It is truly 30 steps to the beach. The waves are constant background music. Walking down the boardwalk next to the cottage at night was beautiful with Queen Mary and San Pedro as a lighted backdrop in the distance. Inside the cottage, WOW! I was there for my yearly vacation with my daughter and felt like walked into a vacation dream home. Everything was decorated with such style and taste, right down to the antique coffee cups (amazing). It was one of the cleanest rentals I have ever experienced. I can guarantee this will be our first choice next year. I highly recommend this cottage and when you open the door you will understand why.

California Dreamin

  • 4 of 5

We always stay here when we visit our hometown LB. The cottage is always clean, we are very particular. It is very relaxing and quiet. Just walk outside and there is a beautiful beach. We walk the boardwalk, the shore, and enjoy the mornings & the sunsets.

Excellent location, quiet and very clean

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect location for walks on the beach, watching sunsets while visiting my son who lives on the peninsula also. Made it super easy to walk back and forth while making him food to freeze at his house. (new college grad on his own). Every morning I would walk to 2nd Avenue Starbucks ( a quick 15-20 minute walk) and then walk back on the beach. Can't think of a better way to start the day. The rental is very clean, and quiet. Internet and TV work great.

Comfortable apartment on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as cute and comfortable as advertised. Everything we needed was provided. The best part was that we were truly 30 steps to the water.

Beach Cottage Hideaway - pretty, peaceful comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This property is exceptional! First it's larger than the pictures show - small kitchen, bathroom with shower and tub, huge living room with a charming Murphy bed and round dining table and 3 chairs and of course an adorable bedroom with the comfiest bed! Loved loved the decor - truly everything in the cottage has been chosen and placed with care and love. The colors are light colored and pretty. Loved the tall open beams in the living room and multitude of windows that opened to let in the cool ocean breeze and sounds. We had to leave one day early and Joann allowed to end our stay early with a refund of our money. We would love to return to this special place in the future!

Quiet Beach Place to Enjoy

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I needed a quiet place to put our feet in the sand and enjoy a couple of days "doing nothing." This was just right for us. We found the Peninsula and Alamitos Bay to be ideal for this kind of weekend. We mostly walked to restaurants (25-30 minutes) and on the beaches. We found Olives Gourmet Grocer, a 10 minute drive up on 2nd Street, to be an ideal place to buy a picnic lunch and even dinner fixings for a romantic supper in the cottage. We will be back when a visit to the area is in order. Though not mentioned in the write-up, there is a full kitchen, with refrigerator, microwave, coffee-maker, stove, dishes, silverware, etc. So it is a fine place to bring your own favorites and call it home. There are no markets or restaurants immediately nearby, so don't be disappointed about that; it's part of what makes the location quiet and peaceful.
