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.

Best rental experience ever

  • 5 of 5

Steve's house is a wonderful house located only 1 and 1/2 blocks from the beach. It is exactly as described on-line and Steve was a pleasure to communicate with prior to our arrival. He was there to meet us when we arrived and showed us around and pointed out certain amenities that we might not have noticed ourselves. The house is well-equipped with everything from boogie boards to coffee pods, from beach towels to paper towels, basic condiments, 3 wonderful tvs, board games, a washer and a dryer, shampoos (if you haven't brought your own), and, parking for 2 cars.

My family of 5 totally enjoyed our stay in this house. It was roomy but also "cozy" in terms of the furnishings and live plants. It had a lived in feeling in a good way. Everything was in good condition. The bathrooms were recently remodeled and were beautiful.

We were very sorry to leave and will hopefully return one day. I whole-heartedly recommend this house to anyone looking for a rental in the Huntington Beach area.

Beautiful home, great location!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Huntington Beach! The home is spacious, beautifully decorated, and a short walk to the beach. We loved the rooftop deck for morning coffee and meals! The owner was very informative prior to our arrival and available for any questions. The home and vacation exceeded our expectations!!

Perfect spot for family spring break

  • 5 of 5

Our Minnesota family of four thoroughly enjoyed staying in Steve's home in HB during our spring break. Steve greeted us and gave us a quick tour upon arrival. Our kids (ages 14 and 12) enjoyed having comfortable rooms and beds, and the master suite was perfect for my wife and me. The living areas are very comfortable and well-furnished, and the kitchen has everything one needs to cook in (if you're into that kind of thing). It was nice having the ability to do laundry (in newer high-efficiency machines). It was also nice to have a garage parking spot off the street, as on-street parking was tight at times.

The location was ideal for us, just a block and a half from the PCH and the beach. It was a slightly longer walk to the center of town off the pier, about half a mile, but that walk helped us feel less guilty about all the great food we sampled at the restaurants in that area!

This was our second stay at this home and we hope to be back again on our next trip to Huntington Beach. The owner, Steve, keeps the house in tip top shape. He has everything ready to go for your arrival. There is dedicated parking in the garage for one vehicle and for one more in the alley in back. Unless you have more than two vehicles you don't have to worry about finding parking on the street. Great location, great owner, and meticulously clean.

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!
