Great place to discoverLong Beach and SoCal

  • 5 of 5

The casita is exactly as pictured- small but with so many amenities in the well-utilized space. The furniture is comfortable- especially the bed. Ample supplies of linens and towels were available for my recent month long visit. Greatly appreciated the availability of a washer and dryer. The neighborhood is gorgeous and safe; I ran in the mornings prior to sunrise and street parking was never a problem. The location offers ready access to the 405 freeway and has easy access to the beach area. Check out the daily yoga class on Ocean Boulevard! I stayed there during the numerous rain events that eventually ended the 5 year drought in the area. Although dreary and damp outside at times, the casita was cozy, warm and welcoming.

The owner addressed any questions/ concern thoroughly and promptly and was genuinely interested in doing anything possible to insure that I had a wonderful experience. I did!

I recommend the Casita for one or possibly two people. Enjoy!

Cozy Indeed!

The neighborhood is very adorable and the casita was clean and comfortable. The ambiance of the backyard is so welcoming. I found myself wanting to spend time out there. We definitely hope to stay here again.

A Little Gem

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Casita. It is positioned in a nice quiet street but close enough to restaurants and shops, which we sometimes walked to. It is small and cozy and has everything that you require. Ed ( the owner ) was very nice and helped us with a minor issue, which was of my making.If we visited the LA area again, we would definitely return here.

Roomy, very clean, great outdoor area

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here on weekends while visiting our son and family 3 or 4 times now. Three rooms (kitchenette, bedroom, sitting room) with bath. Very clean. Nice outdoor area with fireplace. Access to laundry facilities. Our favorite casita in Long Beach.

Lovely little guest house

  • 5 of 5

This was the cutest little guest house in a great neighborhood in Long Beach. We were only there one night, but reservations and check were easy, it was very clean, and it had everything we would have needed. Recommended it to my friends who live close by as a great option for their future visitors!

Comfy home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Very comfy and quite place to stay. Bed is super comfortable, although bathroom is a bit tight. Television has vertical lines running through it that is a bit distracting. No TV channel guide available which makes channel searching tedious. Welcome bottle of wine is a nice touch. Would liked to have used the washer and dryer, but owner had tied up all weekend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your recent review of the Cozy Casita. We appreciate your feedback and value every opportunity to improve our vacation rental, and have in-fact made several improvements based upon guest feedback (such as a brand new L shaped sofa!). Regarding the note about the TV guide, there actually is one in the drawer, as well as a guide button on the remote and additional instructions in the Welcome Binder. With every guest, we strive to make ourselves very available, via text, email, phone or even knocking on the main house. We would love to have the opportunity to solve anything you are dissatisfied with in the moment, rather than find out about it after, since your vacation time is valuable and limited. Next time, just let us know if you're having any issues! Thanks, Ed Oxford, owner Esther McCurry, manager
