Our condo is located in a first-class Alamitos Heights neighborhood, between Cal State Long Beach and the beach, a few minutes from the many attractions of Naples and Belmont Shores.
Amenities of all kinds abound. You are easy walking/cycling distance from scores of restaurants, supermarkets and malls, the university and the V.A., major parks and marinas, the upscale nightlife of 2nd Street, and the L.A. region's best beaches.
Seal Beach is less than three miles away..."secret" surf spot Sunset Beach is five miles...and legendary Huntington Beach is 11 miles.
Our condo is relatively large, and features:
> Two bedrooms, both with large walk-in closets. The Master has a Queen (see photo), while the Guest Bedroom has a Full with memory foam, plus a set of bunkbeds.
> Two bathrooms, one attached to the Master Bedroom, one adjacent to the Guest Bedroom.
> An open layout, with an expansive living and dining area separated from the kitchen by a breakfast bar.
> Kitchen with full-size refrigerator, stove, oven, extra-large microwave, coffeemaker, and dishwasher.
> Large sliding glass doors in the living room *and* in each bedroom, opening onto a private, 300-square-foot, fully fenced veranda with plenty of sun.
The condo complex, called Stoneybrook, includes:
> Two huge swimming pools.
> Four large jacuzzi spas (two indoors).
> Two saunas (separate for men and women).
> Free gas BBQs, and picnic tables by the pools.
> A large and comfortable Clubhouse with huge flat-screen TV, wireless internet, billiards table, and ping-pong table.
> A well-equipped gym in the Clubhouse.
> A pair of tennis courts in excellent condition.
The condo is convenient to such famous attractions as Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, the Long Beach Aquarium, the Queen Mary, the Orange County Performing Arts Center, South Coast Plaza, the L.A. Music Center, Disney Hall, Olvera Street, Venice Beach, and Hollywood.
It is also very convenient to the lesser-known Little India, Little Saigon, Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts, Little Tokyo, Santee Alley, and the many other destinations that make SoCal so vibrant and unique.
Our condo comes with secure, covered, off-street parking for two cars -- an important factor, as parking is a true nightmare in many areas of Long Beach and L.A.
The Stoneybrook complex is exceptionally well-maintained, with gardens and ponds throughout. This is an upscale neighborhood, and secured gates and nightly security patrols ensure added peace of mind. An immaculate laundry room offers four HE washers plus large dryers.
Stoneybrook is popular with friendly people of all ages, from Cal State students to seniors. Our complex is definitely kid-friendly, yet our condo is in a quiet location. Great combo.
You will be near both the 405 and 605 freeways, equi-distant from the Westside, Downtown L.A., and Orange County.
There are at least seven major shopping malls within 15 miles, including that world-famous mecca for shoppers, South Coast Plaza.
The Long Beach airport is four miles away, and both LAX and John Wayne airports are less than 25 miles.
Long Beach has excellent public transportation, including the Blue Line train, which connects with the entire Metro rail network.
Small dogs are welcome. Unfortunately, we can't accept cats. There are simply too many people who are allergic (including members of our family).

A great choice. Mike and Kiyoe are excellent hosts who made certain we were settled in with snacks and coffee upon arrival. The condo is clean and fully furnished with kitchen appliances, cookware, dishes, linens, toiletries, and games. It is conveniently located in a safe neighborhood within walking distance of Ralph's, CVS, and restaurants. We also enjoyed the additional amenities of inside parking, outside patio, fitness center, hot tub, and pool.
Mike and Kiyoe were great! They had the place ready go for check-in on very short notice. Their condo is very nice and comfortable. The location was very convenient as it is near a few freeways (if you carpool traffic is not bad at all... traveled all over LA area). The condo also came with a garage parking. My car and belongings have never felt more safe. Mike and Kiyoe also made checking out very (website hidden) their communication was terrific throughout our stay. I would definitely rent from Mike and Kiyoe again!!
We (originally a group of 5 adults, ended up with 3) were in town for a tournament at the nearby university, so needed a place to rest, focus, and feel at home. Mike & Kiyoe's condo was absolutely perfect. We didn't have the chance to meet them, but they arranged for a neighbor friend to welcome us and show us around. Very accommodating, the place was clean and cozy and quiet. The amenities on top of locale- we were extremely pleased with our first AirB&B experience. There will definitely be return stays! Thank you again!
Our stay in Mike & Kiyoes house was great. The house is very nice, the location is good and safe. It was a very comfortable and lovely stay there because we had everything we need and more. It is great that everything is marked with little notes what we can do or not. Furthermore there is the possibility to do sports in the area and a pool. If we stay in Long Beach again we will book Mike and Kiyoes house again!
The condo we rented was exactly what we needed. We have a family with little babies and it was great to have the dishwasher, full kitchen and 2 bathrooms. Kay was so kind as to let us check in early because of our early flight. We were welcomed by their friend Sue, who was very helpful in showing us around the grounds and where everything was. Kay is so organized, a woman after my own heart! They provided towels, washcloths, grocery bags, grocery store club cards, and laundry card with money on it for us. For a mom who has very little time to do anything but take care of the kids, this meant the world to me! :) My daughter enjoyed the pool so much and just hanging out on the patio with the sand pails. Thanks Kay and Mike. We have already told others about our place and they are planning to book with you too! See you next summer.
Mike & Kioye offer a really nice and big condo to feel homelike! Big kitchen with everythin you need, a big master bedroom, 2 bathrooms and much more space at the kids room. The living/dining room is also very big so it would not be a problem to stay there with 4 people. Everything was very clean and well prepared. You get everything you need (towels, some breakfast "basics", board games, etc.).
But the best: The pool and whirlpool area! As only residents can access it, it is a very private feeling there. We met a lot of very nice people there and had good chats. As we went to the whirlpool every night (open till 11, till 12 on weekends), it's the best place to meet people and start conversations. It's a very nice and relaxing atmosphere there. Even the pool area is within the whole complex, the palm trees and the way it is built make it very nice (as it can be seen on the pictures). During day and nighttime, a security guy was always around and we had to sign a paper to make sure, that only residents are at the pool. So they keep everything very "closed" and safe. Gives a really good feeling and feels totally private.
We also used the gas BBQ grills which are placed all over the whole complex under small shelters. You can use them for free. Very clean, too.
Thanks for letting us stay at your home!
Résidence bien située avec Piscine, tennis et barbecue autour de la piscine, au top. Proche des commerces et cartes de réduction à votre disposition par le propriétaire.
Toutefois, appartement viellot , et sutout sale.
Tâches sur la moquette, cheveux dans la baignoire à notre arrivée, placard de cuisine plein de graisse et odeur d'humidité dans tout l'appartement. Dommage.... Malgé tout nous avons passé un bon séjour.
Mike and Kiyoe are gracious and accommodating hosts! Their condo is in a great location! It is both easy to find and easy to get around town from there. The neighborhood is clean and inviting. We felt safe and comfortable there. The pool and gardens in the condo complex are beautiful!
Location is great. 20 min. to Disneyland. 30 min. to Angels stadion. 20 min. to Knott's Berry farm. horeline Village and (website hidden). are both very close (about 5-19 min. drive)
It is a very secure area. There is a guy at the pool WHO insures that only residents are at the pool. there is a security guard that is on duty every night. Wonderful pool/bbq area. A great fitness room and tennis Court. The laundry fascilities are great and very cheap to use. The condo has everything you need.
Shopping centre is a short walk away (about 2 min.) The Beach Club bar is nice. Good service and good food, lots of sports tv.
A very big mall (Los Cerritos) is only a short drive away.
The hosts are very nice and very quick to respond to emails, if you have any questions.
Definitely a good place to stay and we recommend it highly.
Mike & Kiyoe were super friendly and excellent hosts. The condo worked out well for our family of 5. Mike was always available for advice and any help that we required. Thanks guys we enjoyed our stay.
