Penthouse on the Sand! 270 Views! Walk, Bike, Take the Red Bus, or the Aqualink!

Adults-only Long Beach condos in Harbor, near Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center
The next opening is April, and that is Long Beach Grand Prix month!! Three weekends of racing, including the return of the Super Trucks! You can hear it, you can smell it, you can watch the tailgate parties right under your balcony, and you can walk across the beach to get to it!

Week one, all you hear is the roar of the crowds as it is the E Prix, all electric race cars. The second week, you hear the squealing of the tires, and see the smoke rising from the hairpin turn from the Drifters. The third week is the big one with all the big races that you have been waiting for! Open wheel, Le Mans (my personal favorite), Celebrity Racing, and Production Cars.


This is one of the most amazing beaches around. You have gently crashing waves to the left, the oil island out front that lights up with waterfalls nightly, and the marina to the right. There are two beach cruisers in the garage, and the bike/walking path is right out front, and you can bike or walk to downtown, the Aquarium, and the Pike, and there are festivals most every weekend during the summer on the grass in between. Downtown is full of historical buildings, the Pike has popular shopping outlets, movie theaters, and lots of famous restaurants. The 710 freeway is just minutes away, so getting anywhere is easy. Go the opposite way on the bike/walking path, or on Ocean Blvd., and end up in Belmont Shore, another popular destination in Long Beach, great for shopping and dining with smaller, more intimate venues.

From my first tenants: "Absolutely loving your place! The family too! Had coffee on the lanai this morning overlooking the sunny beach! Everything is beautifully furnished and has everything we need. My 3 year old granddaughter was sleeping when she got here. When she woke up yesterday morning she said where are we, this place is AMAZING!!"

From my last tenants, well they thought is was better than they expected, and they couldn't thank me enough for having everything they needed.

I believe that this is the best unit in the building! Sleeping with the sound of gently breaking waves will lull you to sleep. It is a very private top floor, end unit, in a 4 story building, right on the sand. Views from front and side, you will see why they call it "Long Beach". 2 Br, one King, one Queen, California Closets, High end Mattresses, new linens, 2 updated baths, one with tub and shower bar, one with stand up shower, S/S appliances, eat in kitchen plus dining room, Central A/C and heat, WiFi, Cable, 55' Samsung Curve, big sofa, all upgraded, fancy and fun! 2 car parking in a secure garage, spots are closest to the door. Pool, Jacuzzi, Sauna, Club House, and Laundry on site. 2 Beach cruisers, 1 Kayak. Walk to the Pike, Downtown, Movies, Dining, Festivals every weekend in the summer: April is three weeks of the Grand Prix, Summer time is the Jazz Festival, Lobster Festival, Crawdad Festival, Gospel Festival, BBQ Festival, and the list goes on!! Soft white carpet, no shoes, no pets, no smoking in the building. 30 day minimum, price negotiable for longer stays. :)
Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.

Best unit in the building, fantastic host
Had a wonderful stay at Tari's place on the beach. This is the best unit in the building. Watch the sun set and take in all that Long Beach has to offer right on the water. The beds are super comfortable, the kitchen has all anything a gourmet cook needs. The unit is spacious and well appointed. You won’t find a better host. Thank you Tari :)

Luxurious penthouse on perfect beachfront location
Very few properties in Long Beach can be the view from this beachfront penthouse. The home is luxuriously furnished with high-quality everything. Similarly, the kitchen also is stocked with high-quality utensils. I spent six weeks there, admiring the view, both during the day and night. The property is very conveniently located at walking distance to downtown, the metro, the bus stops, the Pike outlets and grocery stores. It is also a very quiet and safe location. Tari, our host, was friendly, helpful and easy to reach, when we needed her. Will go back there again, if I get a chance.

Home Sweet Home
I must say I have always been lucky with my VRVO vacation rental reservations. This time it was above all, because the place of Tari was not only a beautiful vacation place, but it felt like real home sweet home.. From the first moment I entered the positive energy and warmth was seen so deep.. I loved this place and it was like I have been living there a long time... The unit is very well equipped...Teri is very friendly, honest, and generous...She made sure that we were comfortable all our stay long, and is very easy to reach.. It is in a very nice neighborhood in Long Beach...Just open your eyes in the morning and seeing the beauty of the view and the calmness brings a big smile good for all day long to relax .. sit in the balcony and enjoy the beautiful Southern California sunshine with the ocean breeze... I wished I could extend my stay.. I enjoyed walking on the sand direct from the building... walk easily to Shoreline Village... Two easy covered parking spots is rare to find in vacation rentals! We enjoyed every moment of our stay... This place is really worth it to stay... Thank you Tari... Hope to see you again in the future...

Excellent Rental
We stayed for a month with our son who was recovering from major surgery. The unit was as described online, and the owner was the best we have encountered in the course of several previous VRBO rentals. The location and view is all one can ask for in Long Beach. The neighborhood is a desirable one and the gated underground parking was welcome. The unit itself was well equipped and in fine shape. The beds were particularly comfortable. Our son was able to use the balcony overlooking the beach to read and to enjoy the fresh air and sound of waves coming in. We appreciated the amenities and were pleased with easy access to very good laundry facilities. We had pleasant conversations with occupants of neighboring units. Having been to Long Beach before, we headed down to nearby 2nd street in Belmont Shores to reacquaint ourselves with some of our favorite restaurants and shops. All in all, this was one of our best VRBO rental experiences.
