best place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in this casita many times on visits to my family in Long Beach. It's always clean, comfortable, with all amenities. The owner is in the main house and friendly. It's quiet. The patio is so lovely to relax in at the end of a day. The property manager who books, etc. is extremely responsive and reliable. I hope to continue my visits here and would highly recommend it. It's close to stores and restaurants and public transportation. My home away from home.

Adorable, private casita

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet and clean little house. It had everything we needed and we felt very at home. I love the way the doors had codes instead of keys; this made arrival instructions easier and we didn't have to worry about keys. The ONLY negative was the small bed. My husband and I are not small people and are used to a king and are fine with a queen bed but a full was tight!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this Casita for almost 3 weeks and you would think after that much time we would be ready to go!! That wasn't the case what-so-ever. The detail Ed and Esther put into this property is incredible. They really made it a home away from home for us. I really don't think any 5 star hotel would have measured up to our experience in the Casita. So thankful this was the VRBO that we choose. The location is ideal in relation to the Beach Cities, the yard and sitting area is wonderful and has all the amenities one needs in their accommodations while away from home. If ever back in the Long Beach area, this will be our first choice for accommodations!

We loved the location and the cottage was clean and very nice. Only issue was the bed. It was too uncomfortable so we slept on couch and that was acutally really comfy

Owner's Response: Hi Jen, We're so sorry to hear you didn't find bed comfortable. We've never had anyone complain about the bed before. Since comfort levels vary so greatly with beds, when we bought the bed (which was recently), we decided to go with "medium" firmness in an attempt to accommodate the most people.
