People love 1303 Bay Ave House for its interior design, the long list of amenities, the hot tub, the views, and the proximity to the beach and to the town.

The home has been beautifully remodeled and re-designed to its original turn-of-the-century style. The original roof was removed and a second floor was built where there was once was an attic. Upstairs has two bedrooms, two private full bathrooms, an extra sitting room with a 55” LG Smart TV, and a wrap-around deck with gorgeous views of the small town and distant ocean.

Downstairs is a fully stocked kitchen, living room with a second 55” LG SmartTV, a queen bedroom, a den with two twin beds, full bathroom, a laundry room and another wrap-around deck with a propane barbecue and a 3-person hot tub.

Adelaides café and bookstore is next door in a two-story historic building and serves ice cream by the scoop. Across the street is the Bay Ave Art Gallery and a new Antique store.

About Chandy Gaub

1303 Bay Ave. is the third vacation rental that Rob and Heidi own on the Long Beach Peninsula. The first is the Bloomer Mansion, the 2nd is 45th Street. 'We all love the Long Beach WA Peninsula, and frankly we never imagined that the Bloomer Mansion would become so successful that it is rented out nearly every weekend. We actually needed a place to stay when we came to the beach.'

They are hopeful you will enjoy their second home as much as the Bloomer Mansion - but perhaps not so much that they never get a chance every weekend is booked year round.

Guestbook comments from the manager

“My family brought me to the beach to celebrate my 70th birthday. My children have come from San Francisco, Honolulu and four of us from Bremerton, WA. We have been to Long Beach on many trips, but have to say this was the best vacation ever. The house was perfect and big enough for everyone to do their own thing and not get in anyone’s way. I hope to come back to this house again, my birthday was everything I wanted and also my sister came from Orlando.”

This is a large and spacious home with anything you could need for your stay. Very close to the beach and the area was quiet and relaxing while we were there in early May. We forgot our baby monitor and they shipped it to us the next day. Great customer service.

Reviewer Comments:

This was the 4th time our group of 6 retired adults stayed in this property and we did have a few problems. The major one was a non working gas fireplace. Because it was Easter weekend a repair crew did not arrive until Monday afternoon. The entire burner had to be replaced so we had the use of the fireplace for half of our 4 day stay. The yard and landscaping need to be cleaned and trimmed. An old storm door (broken on our first stay by heavy winds and rain) is laying along the west side of house with weeds growing up through gaps. The changes that have been made to property of making small den off kitchen a bedroom and adding large TV above fireplace were not to our liking. The ladies in our group liked not having a noisy TV in quaint living room. A place of quiet and calm. The shower curtain rods in upstairs bathrooms are cheep tension rods with plastic hooks. Neither rod or rig stays in place. Spend a few more dollars on a permanent rod with quality curtain and rings. We may use property again but may look elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am sorry the upgrades to the home were not to your liking. For 6 years now people have been asking for a TV in the living room, so the owners finally obliged with a 55" SmartTV. The two pillow top single beds were also added to the den based on multiple customer requests. The fold out sofa was just too uncomfortable there. Perhaps on your next visit, we can take all the remotes out of the house so there is no temptation for the TV to be on : ) We do have our lawn care contracted out. We had a very rainy winter and spring and things have grown fast-so we are working on the cleaning and trimming. The screen door is replaced and the old one is gone and the shower curtain rods have also been replaced. We do hope we will see you again soon. Chandy, Manager Bloomer Estates Vacation Rentals

We had a wonderful four night stay! The house is very comfortable and so are the beds! Our group really appreciates the large dining room table where we enjoy dinners together and play cards and games. The kitchen is well equipped with lots of plates, flatware, and big pots and pans! We stayed here while we were clam digging. This house worked very well for our large group!

It was perfect for a family gathering. Location and space and kitchen and hot tub were wonderful. However, none of the the tvs worked and we followed the instructions and called with no response. Also ants were everywhere.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we did find that there was an issue with the main cable box but the issue is now fixed and all tvs are in working order, unfortunately it seems with our warm/cold winter weather the ants are a bit confused but they are being dealt with as well. Thank you for your review and we hope to see you again. As an added note, since this review was written, the ants are well gone as we put out multiple ant traps over a period of weeks. We also added two 55" LG Smart TVs with Direct TVs so the TV experience is much improved. Chandy, Managment Bloomer Estates

Reviewer Comments:

Despite winter rains our party of 6 adults had a great time. Our second stay in this property so we were able to compare property condition now and during our previous stay. There are some items that need to be addresses. One shower did not drain (off bedroom with twin beds), the towels are threadbare and stained and the supply of glasses was short. We ended up going to local store and buying 4 glasses so there would be enough for 6 drinks. We also found ants a number of times - not excessive but there.

Owner's Response: Hi and thanks so much for staying again! The owner was the very next person to stay, and fixed the drain. They brought in 10 new drinking glasses, no idea where the last ones went. We had ant killer in the top kitchen drawer, and two drops did the trick overnight. They are tiny tiny ants a nuisance but easily fixed. The towels have been replaced and now looking at all towels. Also, while they were there, they added a trundle bed with two new twin mattresses to the den, so now 8 can sleep comfortably. They added a sofa couch to the living room so 8 adults can now sit comfortably there. Finally, we just added DirectTV with NFL and by next week we will have a new 55" Smart TV in the living room. Almost forgot-they also added a brand new kitchen and train set for kids. In short, 1303 sees to be near perfect now, but always looking for new ways to improve! Chandy, Manager

Reviewer Comments:

We arrived at the property and the door code provided was incorrect, we tried to reach both contacts via the numbers provided. No one contacted us for 1.5 hours. We were ready to find a hotel for the night and then we finally got a call back, There appeared to be some confusing with the booking address?? The contact for the rental company...Chandy was her name I believe gave us the correct code and got us into the house. She was polite and apologized, the rest of our vacation was fantastic. The house and property was wonderful! We will book again soon!
