Dear Carol and Traian, Thank you for your hospitality and kindness. I found the apartment very comfortable, and quiet, and I enjoyed being so close to the restaurants and cafes on 2nd street. Thank you for letting me park my rental motorcycle in the garage. I hope that this visit will be followed by many often. Sincerely, Joel from Marseille, France

THE BEST IN BELMONT SHORE
I had the privilege to spend the last 3 weeks at this property. The location was excellent and the accommodation's were A+++. Clean, quiet, safe and the amenities made you feel right at home. The owners; Carol and Traian made me feel part of the family and met all my needs during my vacation. I would strongly recommend this property to anyone who like to stay in the Belmont Shore area. You are walking to distance to the famous 2nd street area that includes the best restaurant's and nightlife when on vacation. I know I will be returning in the near future. I guarantee you will not be disappointed for the value.
My husband, baby boy and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was well-appointed, bright, clean, quiet and comfortable. The location was perfect and close to the local shops and restaurants in Belmont Shore. It's also just a few blocks from the beach, which is great. We would certainly recommend this listing to friends and would happily stay there again next time we're in Long Beach.
Cozy, Clean, Delightful Apartment!
We loved every minute of our time in the Long Beach area. We quickly discovered that this apartment was in the perfect location. It was very clean, cozy, and within walking distance of all the activities we love. Daily, my husband walked to a nearby gym or to swim in a local pool, while I took long walks along the beach or in the lovely neighborhoods surrounding the canals. While very close to Second Street and a multitude of fantastic restaurants, the apartment was very quiet and peaceful. In addition, Traian and Carol could not have been better or more attentive hosts. It was a true pleasure getting to know them a bit and sharing nice conversations. To top it off, several times Traian made special latte coffees for me, and that was WAY beyond the call of duty! We've been home one week and we're already wishing we could return. Hopefully this delightful apartment will be available the next time we come to California to visit our kids and new grandchild. Many thanks!
Location, location, location AND the owners!!!!!
Traian and Carol were wonderful hosts! Friendly, helpful, accommodating and super-nice! The apartment is wonderful and quaint, perfect for a romantic getaway. Close to nearby stores and a multitude of ethnically diverse restaurants and shops....loved it! Long Beach has so much to offer that should keep any adventurer/traveler busy. It was nice to go out for a long bike ride, drop off the bikes at the apartment and then walk to 2nd street for happy hour!
Did we mention that Traian and Carol were awesome! We spoke at length on several occasions and we've made new friends.
We highly recommend this property and look forward to going back!
Great for long term stay
My boyfriend and I stayed for more than a month. We were visiting scholars at UC Irvine and needed a place to stay whilst working, which also allowed us easy access to tourist activities. Carol and Traian proved the most hospitable, trustworthy, friendly, and helpful hosts, knowing the fine balance between allowing our privacy and inviting us for dinners. They greeted us with a Christmas tree and took us up the coast for a drive. The place is small and cute, heats quickly and has utensils for making basic meals. Highly recommendable!
quiet but close to everything
My husband and I spent a month in this pleasant small apartment. The owners who live in the front house were always eager to be of help. The apartment is quiet. The only drawbacks are lack of washing machine and the rather basic kitchen, but if you don't want to cook anything elaborate, it's fine. There's a wealth of nearby restaurants and takeaways. We were excessively pleased with the neighborhood and with the public transport and had a thoroughly enjoyable time.
