About Stephen Thomaidis

Welcome to Huntington Beach. When I came to California, I fell in love with the relaxed atmosphere and friendly beach community. I was fortunate enough to purchase my home in 1999 and have painstakingly updated it over the years to create a relaxing retreat that captures the California beach spirit. I hope you enjoy your stay.

Been there multiple times and will certainly come back...

  • 5 of 5

This has been the 3rd time I was able to enjoy this fantastic property. There is nothing that I'm missing there and the location is just perfect.

The owner is most helpful and everything is perfectly set up for a vacation with the beach in easy walking distance. Also Huntington Beach Main Street and Pacific City is in walking distance for you to enjoy the bars and restaurants there.

I will certainly come back - and so should you!

Great location. Convenient to the beach and restaraunts. The house is very clean.

  • 5 of 5

Steve met us on our arrival and gave a quick overview of the property. The house was very clean and is the first HomeAway rental where our grandson hasn’t had allergy issues. It is also well stocked with everything you need to get going from coffee to toilet paper, paper towels, plastic bags,, cleaning equipment etc. Steve even left us a couple of bottles of wine as a welcoming gift. There is a washer and dryer and the house has dedicated parking with room for one large car in the garage and a space in the alley. We hope to stay here again next time we visit Huntington Beach!

Incredibly thoughtful owner

  • 5 of 5

This home is very clean, good location, and an owner who is one of the best we have worked with. We have rented about 25 homes in HB over the last 15 years, and this is the most organized home we have rented. Steve pays attention to every detail, everything you will need is there, without the usual clutter from the owner. Did I mention this house is very clean? We plan to return there as long as it is available.

Gorgeous, comfortable, and enjoyable--I wish I lived here!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house, the owner clearly takes good care of everything and wanted to make sure we would be happy the whole time. The kitchen is perfectly well equipped, my family had everything we needed for a holiday dinner. The proximity to the beach is fantastic and we walked to Downtown Huntington Beach each day for restaurants and just to enjoy the great weather!

Home away from home

Very nice!

Stephen met us at the house and shared useful information with us.

Everything we needed, even full sized shampoo and conditioner in every bathroom, coffee and wine. Very quick to respond to emails and texts.

Easy walking distance to the beach and downtown.
