Property was all that was described and more.

Property was well maintained, clean and had many household needs for our stay.

Also close to the lagoon beach and other attractions in the Belmont Heights area.

We will definitely return again in the future.

Beautiful, comfortable, secure, great location and very reasonably priced

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed to Sea La Vie by the owner, Dan and Pam. They were warm and friendly and showed us around the property and answered our questions. They had provided fresh flowers, fruit and pastry as a welcome gift. This property is spacious, well maintained and comfortable. It is beautifully furnished and the kitchen was stocked with every thing needed to cook and serve meals. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and we were encouraged to use them. The location is excellent located a block from a beautiful lagoon and park. It is off the major streets but has easy access to the beach and shopping. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will book again the next time we are in the area. Thanks Dan and Pam for opening your lovely home and making us feel so welcome. You are the best!

Dan's house was comfortable, charming, historical, and safe.

  • 5 of 5

Dan was a very kind host, and we loved the house with its history. The area was nice for walking around, and the off-street parking at the house was just fantastic. Thanks for the great stay, Dan!

Fabulous!

What a great place to stay! Beautiful house, right next to the Colorado Lagoon, my grandson swam in the lagoon and loved it! Dan couldn't be nicer if he tried and the place had everything we needed at our fingertips. Would love to stay there again!

Beautiful Apartment "Sea La Vie" With a Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

Sea La Vie has been an amazing place to stay during our one week vacation to California. Our late-night arrival was met with an easy check-in process, and Dan was a superb host. There was breakfast in the fridge, a basket of candy and fruit, linens and towels available with the beds already made, as well as a beautifully decorated and spacious interior that made Sea La Vie feel like home. This apartment accomodated our family of four nicely, and the private gated driveway provided a nice touch of security. Thank you Dan for all you‘ve done for us!

Wonderful location with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable in an excellent location. The sleep number bed is Great! And the kitchen is completely stocked with anything you needed. Wonderful place for dogs. Loved the close access to Rosie's Dog Beach and the local dog park. And the fenced yard is a real plus. We stayed for month and had plenty of room for actual living vs just living out of a suitcase. And Dan is a very welcoming and supportive host. Would willing book again if we are back in the area.
