Only a few steps to the beach! Awesome location!
Perfect location for just about anything! The oceanfront beach is only one block away, but we spent most of our time in the harbor (which is a couple steps from the patio). The harbor beach is clean, and has activities to keep kids busy for days (kayak and paddle board rentals, nice swimming area with lifeguards, and a ninja warrior aquatic course that’s free). The property itself has everything you need for the beach and was very spacious and comfortable for our group (2 adults and 4 kids). Beach towels, umbrellas, chairs and some sand toys helped us enjoy our beach days more. We ate out most of the time in seal beach, drove to Huntington for one day to catch some bigger waves. Everything is really close.... out 14 and 15 year old boys felt comfortable riding skateboards all around the area and spent some time at the mall (bike riding distance). I gave the location 5 stars, but if you want quiet and no neighbors, Long Beach is a busy city, especially over holiday weekends... lots and lots of people (which we enjoyed!) There’s a nice gas grill on the patio at the street level, so we grilled a couple of times and chatted with the passerby’s. Heidi is a wonderful host, highly responsive to questions and gave extra details about the 4th of July activities. Would definitely stay again!
