About the property

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!!!

About Joann

I love Long Beach and wouldn't want to live anywhere else!!!

Joann purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Joann chose Los Angeles County

Clean and quiet getaway, perfect for relaxing at the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

Belmont Shore is a friendly, walkable community, and one of the most desirable areas in Long Beach. You will feel relaxed and at home here. So take your shoes off, kick back, and enjoy beautiful Southern California, whether you want to enjoy a quiet, relaxing vacation, or take in the many amusement parks and sights that California and Long Beach has to offer.

Piece of paradise

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Joann,

Perfect location for some R & R. Right on the beach~ the sound of the waves crashing on the shore all night long was amazing, and being able to sit on the shore first thing in the morning was awesome. This homeaway is very clean and cozy. Lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. Can't say enough about this gem~ will differently return sooner then later.

Shabby chic beach elegance

  • 5 of 5

When we stepped into our beach cottage it was exactly what I had imagined. All of the shabby chic touches throughout were noticed and appreciated by our family - two of which were male. This was our first southern California beach front stay with my husband, I and our 17 year old twins - the sleeping accommodations were perfect. I loved being able to listen to the ocean through the open windows. The cottage featured everything you could possibly need with fabulous linens, a full kitchen and anything else you may have forgotten. Our morning walks along the ocean front promenade just steps from our front door were amazing! Highly recommended to all.

Beachfront Escape

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely magical little cottage - it feels like you've escaped to another place and time! Location couldn't be better as you walk out your door and go across Seaside Walk right onto the beach. At the same time you are so close to many restaurants and shops which makes it very convenient and you get the best of both worlds! We were there for a convention at the Long Beach Convention Center so it was a great place to retreat to at the end of very full days. Just wish we had more time there but otherwise no complaints and I very much hope to visit again!

Only Stay in Cool Weather

  • 3 of 5

The cottage is nice and I would recommend it as long as the weather is cool. Unfortunately, we stayed when the temp was in the high 80's and the place was stuffy and hot all day and night! There is no air conditioning or way to get enough cross breeze to cool the place down. The one fan that is provided is small and not adequate.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, you did stay at a particularly hot time. Since you are at the beach, almost on the sand, there is usually a breeze if you open the bedroom and dining room window that faces the beach. If additional fans were needed, I am just a phone call away and can usually be there within 5 minutes. There is not a lot of storage, so we don't keep a bunch of "extra" stuff stored in the cottage. I am sorry that is all you had to say about our cottage. It is disappointing to hear. Most people thoroughly enjoy their experience and it saddens me to hear that you did not. Please consider staying with us again when you can enjoy the beach more. Perhaps off season, when it is cooler, and more to your liking.
