A Personal, Private Paradise
The moment you enter, you understand. The elegant
entry is not a door into a house; it is a portal to a private paradise. Other houses, streets, and cars suddenly cease to exist. On every level complete comfort overlooking the Pacific, with Catalina Island in the distance. Wide open spaces are everywhere, while you remain totally secluded in private comfort.
Whether it’s just the two of you or many more, the family living area is where you will probably spend most of your time. The floor plan was conceived with the understanding that both adults and kids lead busy lives. There are work assignments, meals to prepare, games to play, and TV shows to watch. Life occurs on the fly, yet communication is what keeps a family strong. With this in mind, these spaces encourage family living and spontaneous communication. Natural conversation areas are strategically placed between centers of activity like the kitchen, family room and eating areas. A beautiful multi-purpose table pulls the entire area together, providing a place to stay connected with everyone while working on math problems, playing with crafts or assembling jigsaw puzzles.
Throughout the family living area, natural beauty and privacy are constant companions. Open ocean, lapping waves, and striking seaside views instill a sense of peace and safety.
The kitchen is, in a word, magnificent. It also seems to have the uncanny ability to know exactly how big it should be. Whether it is used to make a quick snack for two, or to throw a dinner party for 40, the kitchen always feels just right. Impeccably finished granite countertops provide a seemingly endless workspace and serving area. An open design and strategically placed seating encourage interaction with family members and guests. Yet with no effort at all, the kitchen can be transformed into a private workspace.
It is impossible not to feel energized when you awaken in the morning. When you rise to greet the day, a grand Pacific ocean stretches before you, its gentle waves capped in bright white along the beach as they catch the sunlight. Dolphins leap from sparkling water just offshore. Your coffeepot gurgles from the nearby breakfast bar. This is how mornings are meant to be. The master bedroom is your own personal paradise. The lush bed chamber is relaxing and intimate. The bath is warm and luxurious, with its stunning jetted tub.
When things are quiet, the room is warm and relaxed, an inviting spot to get away with a book, watch TV or have a quiet chat. Add more people, however, and the rec room becomes the hub of activity. The ping pong, air hockey, and fusball tables are an excellent complement to the big-screen TV on game day.
When it is time to wind down and enjoy the stunning sunset views, there is no better place than the cozy 4th floor observatory. Providing spectacular panoramic views of the tranquil ocean scene....Read more

I really didn't know what to expect when I rented a house in Long Beach. This house surprised us in a great way. The ocean views knocked us out. Every floor in the house has huge ocean views. Exceptionally large 3 story home in a city of small spaces. It has attached garage parking!! Hardwood floors, granite counterstops and really great bathrooms and kitchens. Yes, plural... you can rent with 2 kitchens, and several bathrooms. (Ideal when you vacation share like we did with other couples.) Everything is new, fresh and clean. Ultra important because we stayed 3 weeks. Having a washer/dryer on site was a real plus. Lots of other perks in the house too. Huge decks with heaters, commercial appliances, steam shower, nice beds and good linens and elevator. Game room was good on a rainy day off.
The location was wonderful. The beach is literally across the street. Quick walk to Belmont Shore which has a variety of restaurants and shopping. Short run to the airport. Mike, the owner, was really helpful in giving us the inside info on what to do and where to go.
Everybody agreed that the best part of the house was kicking back on the deck. The sunsets are incredible and it is just so relaxing to sit and watch the ships, kite boarders and people on the beach.
