About Shawn & David
I am an artist/writer who has lived in the beautiful Belmont Shore, Long Beach area for over 20 years with my husband and three dachshunds. We are originally from the East coast. We came to California about 30 years ago and have not looked back since. My husband is an avid surfer who enjoys jumping in the car any chance he gets to catch the latest swell just 15 minutes south. He also enjoys golfing at anyone of the many golf courses just minutes away when he is feeling particularly good about his game. As for myself I teach painting to the neighborhood children and a few talented adults in the area. I've worked for over 20 years as an internationally published artist. I've also completed many large hotel design commissions in the Pacific region. Recently I have been spending most of my time writing for a local magazine and working on a children's book based on our lives with three rambunctious wiener dogs and a grey cat who hopes someday to be a dachshund. We bought our 1928 Spanish duplex as a fixer upper in the 90's. It has become a project of love as each year we continue to update it into a comfortable creative living space.My husband and I live in the lower unit surrounded by our lovely intimate garden. This year after two decades of renting our beautiful airy upstairs unit we have decided to transform it into a comfortable vacation rental for those wanting to visit this centrally located part of California. Within walking distance to the ocean, bay, five star restaurants and upscale shopping we think our guests will fall in love not only with the area but also with Quincy La Casa. Bienvenido!
Shawn & David purchased this Apartment in 1992
Why Shawn & David chose Belmont Shore
It is a terrific area for the traveling executive. Centrally located between LA and Orange Co. Minutes from 710, 405, 605, 22 freeways. Also good for singles or couples needing a little R and R. Lots of 4 star restaurants. Nicks is terrific. New one is Saint on 2nd, George's for Mediterranean. Minutes to exclusive Naples canals, shopping and restaurants. Stores walking distance such as The Gap, Banana Republic and one-of-a-kind boutiques. Walking distance to beautiful bay area with swimming, sailing and paddle boarding. Or to the ocean for kite boarding swimming or sailing
What makes this Apartment unique
My husband and I have been in our 1929 Spanish home for over 20 years. We fell in love with the original architecture and charm that rings though out. The location is perfect for lazy weekends when a stroll down to the bay or ocean with a cup of steaming coffee from one of the many bistros on 2nd Street is all that's needed. We love the small community and picturesque sunsets that grace our area.

Comfy Parisian Nest!
Shawn’s artistic touches and comfortable furnishings make this roomy gem a perfect place to relax. We loved all the windows and the sea breezes while in the house, as well as dining on the back garden patio. Thank you so much.
It's always a pleasure to share one's abode with another neighborhood host.
See you soon (:
My family's expectations were definitely met! The rooms were quite spacious and we enjoyed using the deck. The owners were welcoming and provided friendly text reminders about parking, etc, during our stay. The location was perfect... right between the beach and town shops. We would love to stay at Quincy La Casa when we are back in town.
Another special stay at La Casa Quincy!
We really enjoy this special house; it just feels like home - but better! We never have time enough here. Maybe next visit!
We enjoyed our stay.
Spacious and Light with Great Location
This property was one of our favorites we have stayed at for vacation. The photos are very accurate but it felt even larger and more spacious than we had anticipated. There are a lot of large windows that let in light, and have nice curtains so you have privacy as well. It is decorated very nicely and stocked with everything you could possibly need while on vacation. It is very comfortable in all the rooms here. The property is in a wonderful neighborhood with only a few minutes walk to all the restaurants and shops on 2nd Street, and a short walk to the beach. The owners and rental manager were all wonderful and very communicative both before and during our stay. This is also a pet-friendly property and we were able to bring our dog. It was perfect for all of us! We will definitely stay here again if we return to Long Beach. Highly recommend!
It was a pleasure to have you and your family (and fur). We are so happy you were comfortable and enjoyed the neighborhood. Thank you for taking such great care of our place. It's so appreciated. You are always welcome back.
Quincy La Casa

The property itself and location was more than we could have hoped for! We would definitely stay here again!
Thank you for staying with us again. It was lovely to have you back.
