Property Details

Updated: Apr 6, 2015
House, 1 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 2 Sleeps

Looking for a peaceful home away from home for work or family visits?

Look no further. Come for the calm.

Welcome to Alamitos Bay, just a short stroll from Belmont Shore - and 2nd Street. This beach cottage is on the Peninsula - you'll find you've arrived in a quiet little beach town with all the amenities of a large metropolitan city just a few miles away.

Your getaway between the Bay and the Ocean could be yours - your own beach house!

Enjoy the sunrise on the Bay and the sunset on the Beach. It's a short stroll to either one. But be sure to relax and take a breath! You're on vacation. If you've come for work in the City, at the University, or at the Port, we'll do our best to make you feel like you've just found your new 'home office' in this secluded spot. Our Executive travel guests love our location....

Make your way through the gate and meander up the stairs to find your own spacious deck where you can BBQ, dine alfresco, or just lounge the day away. This cozy 1 bedroom 1 bath just for two has everything you could want in your very own home away from home. There's a comfy Queen bed awaiting you.

We want to say, 'Welcome, won't you come and stay for a while?'. Our impeccable attention to detail will let you know, we want to make your retreat a tranquil one. Backgammon, chess, watch a movie, need a book? No need to run in to town, unless you want to.

Whatever you choose to do with your time while you're here, you'll be sure to want to return time and time again.


Owner on site - dog on site (allergies?). Two person max occupancy, no exceptions.

Dear Natalie -

You have created a perfect retreat from all the cares of this life! We really felt quite at home in your perfect little cottage by the sea and bay. We wanted for nothing, seeing as you had thought of our every need and made sure it was met. The supper in the basket was great; the soaps and amenities, special!

We will be back to enjoy your place again, soon.

We hope to have time to get to know you better next time we stay.

Thank you and many blessings.

Wonderful Holiday

  • 4 of 5
This is a clean, charming rental in a great area of Long Beach! We used to live in the area so have reason to come down to visit family, and this was the perfect way to go. It was so much better than a hotel: the kitchen is charming, the bed comfortable and the living room is a spacious and relaxing place to hang out. Natalie is friendly and accommodating, and set us up for a wonderful stay. The whole neighborhood was twinkling with holiday lights!
Thanks Natalie! We'll call you when we need to come back in town.

Modern Oldie AND Goodie!

Wow! I don't know how to start.
How about perfect location, perfect setting, perfect access to strand-back bay and ocean!
Besides that...quite, friendly neighbors, great owner and the rental is so 1950's beach house it is unreal.
This is the perfect [place if you have business in LA, The beach cities or Orange county...because oafter doing your business you come back to this secluded beach community and get grounded again.
The only reason I we don't give it a 5 star is because Natalie didn't put little chocalates on the pillows at night!...(hint, hint).
I recommend it to one and all...especially if you remeber what the So
Cal beach communities were really like when in the 50's and 60' was like coming home for us!

Peace of mind

  • 5 of 5
My time at the beach cottage will forever be one of the best memories of my life. I am a 31 year old woman, and I was able to travel there alone without fear. I didn't have a single worry while I was there. Every item I could have needed was available. Even the smallest things like ziplock bags were provided in the kitchen. With the little things taken care of already, I had time to just relax. Time to consider my life without the everyday rush of life. One of the days of my stay I took the beach chair and a couple of towels to Huntington Beach pier and stayed there all day. I read books, walked barefooted along the beach, and wrote letters to loved ones. I've never been so peaceful. Thanks Natalie for creating such an amazing and inviting place to stay.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Long Beach Airport at 6 Miles Nearest Barpub : ...plenty of bars and restaurants on 2nd Street at 0.5 Miles Nearest Golf : ...plenty of golf courses in Long Beach! at 5 Miles Nearest Restaurant : 2nd Street, PCH and downtown Long Beach at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : right outside of the gate! 100 feet away....

Wake up on Sunday morning and make your way to the Farmers Market where you'll find everything you need for alfresco dining on the deck. Or if you like, go to Pine Avenue in Downtown Long Beach for some upscale dining. If casual is your choice, take a short stroll to 2nd Street to find anything you could want - restaurants, services, banking, and more. Did I mention the Golf? The Birding? The Kite Sailing? Biking? Paddle Boarding, Kayaking, Racquetball, movies, sailing, swimming, shelling? Fishing? Shopping, and spas? All either out your door or just down the street. Because your getaway is just steps to the bay, or the ocean.

Any other day, you can visit the Aquarium of the Pacific, Long Beach Pike, Queen Mary, Long Beach Museum of Art, Museum of Latin American Art, or stroll through Shoreline Village. A water taxi will take you between Shoreline Village and Downtown.

Not much further away, you'll find all of the major attractions - Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Universal Studios and so many more. There are two International Cruse Ship facilities available, or you could just take the Catalina Express '26 miles across the sea...'

LAX and John Wayne International Airports are available if you can't find a flight right into our very own Long Beach Airport.

Long Beach is freeway close to four major highways that will take you any direction you want to's not only it's own City but it's close to both Orange County and Los Angeles County attractions, sites and destinations.

Being right in the middle of things - that's why people come here!

Two persons max occupancy. Owner and dog on premises.
