Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a conference at the Long Beach Convention Center. The accommodations were clean, comfortable, and convenient. The hosts were professional and informative. The only downside was the tight parking in the garage. We would stay again!

Fantastic Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo location and amenities were fantastic! The backdoor open right onto the sandy beach and all the accessories needed are there for use (i.e. beach chairs and towels). Only a half mile walk to coffee shops, restaurants and tourist attractions. We loved our stay and will definitely use it again. Communication was fantastic and Mark was wonderful onsite help; extremely helpful! I would've given 6 stars if possible.

Great place! Will stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

Great place right on the beach. Parking can be tricky but they're honest and upfront about that so you are aware. They thought of the little things to make the stay great...change for laundry as well as a basket and detergent, bags for groceries and their number for discounts, beach towels and chairs, and more.

Absolutely no regrets... except maybe the parking. but still worth it!

  • 5 of 5

So close to the beach I woke up every morning to feel the sand between my toes. I had the best time I could've imagined at this apartment. Parking is tough if you drive anything but a sedan but everything is walking distance so I didn't need my car once I found a parking spot. Everything was so CLEAN and gave a homey feeling.
