Great location , comfortable and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and just a short walk on beach path to Grand Prix. Place was very clean and comfortable. Owners provided beach chairs, umbrella, and change for laundry!

We loved walking out of building and onto the beach.

We will be back soon

A wonderful place for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed at this property for one week. It was a little tight for us, but we loved being so close to the beach! The property had absolutely everything we needed. We really loved that there were very comfortable beach chairs and an awesome beach umbrella. The only thing we would have liked to have had were a few beach toys/buckets, but not a big deal. The chocolates in the bedroom were a very nice touch and the microwave popcorn was really great too!!We felt at home at the property and would definitely stay there again. Thank you very much for helping us have a fun vacation!

Another great vacation at Beachside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time renting Beachside Retreat and it was even better than the first time in 2013. There were upgrades since our last stay such as central air conditioning. The new AC units cooled down the place in minutes. This time our stay was almost two weeks long so the cleaning staff came in and cleaned the whole place halfway through our stay - they did a fabulous job!! I would recommend Beachside Retreat to anyone who will be staying in Long Beach. There are so many things to do in and around Long Beach and this place is close to everything. There is a walking/biking path on the beach right behind the condo that leads to a Marina which has gift shops and restaurants - so convenient if you do not want to drive. We look forward to visiting Long Beach again and would definitely stay at Beachside Retreat again if it's available.

The truth...

  • 5 of 5

My stay here was perfect. They supply everything you need..I would recommend people to bring extra towels though. The beach is right outside, and they provide beach chairs and beach towels. I'm gonna book this unit everytime I vacation in California!
