Located above the owners' Spanish style house in a lively neighborhood. Guests have use of the side patio for relaxation or alfresco dining. Close to freeways and public transportation for easy access to other Southern California attractions.

The space

Entrance to the "pied-a-terre" is directly off the street, separate from the main house. The open floor plan with French doors and many windows create a bright & cheerful environment. The home is ideally suited for 1 person or a couple. An extra guest may use the sofa in the living room.

Guest access

Guests have use of the cozy side patio for relaxation to the sound of the water fountain. Or, enjoy morning coffee or a cocktail before dinner there.

Interaction with guests

Owners, Al & Colleen, live in the house below and always happy to assist guests with restaurant recommendations or questions about the Belmont Shore area. They will give you plenty of privacy if you prefer or they would join you for a glass of wine, if invited.

Other things to note

Parking is plentiful on the streets and a permit isn't required. Be sure to observe street sweeping days of Thursday and Friday mornings. A parking citation runs about $50.

Beautiful place infront of a park. The hosts colleen and Al was helpful. They let us do our own thing and just a phone call away if we need anything. Definitely recommend

Convenient place to stay in Long Beach. I would highly recommend it.

Fantastic experience! Easy check-in and check-out with great communication throughout. Good open space with lots of light and breeze with big windows and a great view of the park across the street. Perfect little playground for our toddler. The bed was comfortable, the washroom and kitchen had everything we needed and the place was clean and tidy. 5 minute walk to all of the restaurants and amenities, and 10-12 minute walk down to the beach. BONUS: a gorgeous terrace in the backyard which was nice to unwind in after a nice day out. Would highly recommend staying here. Thanks Al and Colleen :)

Response from Colleen:
At first we were a bit concerned about having a toddler upstairs without a door between the living space and the stairs but the parents were very diligent in watching the 16-month old boy. They also put all breakables out of his reach. This family is welcomed back anytime.

Al's Place is walking distance to 2nd street in Belmont Shores. Lots of wonderful shops and restaurants. The apartment is beautifully appointed and comfortable. We will certainly stay there again.

Hi Jennie, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. The apartment is being painted now so you'll see a slightly different color in the living area next time you visit. Colleen

Al and Colleen have been tremendously helpful hosts. The house is very clean and tidy, and it's location couldn't be better, right next to Second Street. We could strongly recommend this house to everyone. It was also ideal for us to get to the two sailing regattas we were here for.
