About This Listing
This nicely appointed apartment sits one block away from over 50 restaurants, bars, and shops on the beach in the world- famous surf city USA aka Huntington Beach.
While close to the action the location is very quiet and relaxing as you come home from a day of fun to a nice entertainment system and a soothing setting... wake up smelling the ocean and enjoying the sights and sounds of this great beach city!
There are over 50 shops, restaurants, and bars to satisfy any taste from high end italian and sushi to mexican and american fare and steak houses as well as a wine bar...
Surf shops abound as does the world-famous Duke's restaurant on the sand...
There are surf contests, extreme sports competitions, art fairs, and the city closes off main street into a pedestrian fair on Tuesday nights for mid-week fun and laughs with bands on the street and great specials to be had...
The beautiful thing about this apartment is while the location, location, location is great, the charm and simplicity of being close to the action yet far enough to get some peace is the true value... you will love it! and it can have a family of up to six... a nice queen size bed with a queen size blow-up and nice couch... it would be a little cramped with six but with so much to do around the neighborhood most people never notice =)...
There is a 24 hour fitness, yoga studio, bike and segway rentails, surf lessons and rentals and other exercise oriented facilities within 2-3 blocks for those who crave those kinds of activities.
The main attraction is of course the beach... volleyball, surfing, swimming, sun-tanning, people watching, relaxing....
We also have wifi and cable TV as well as blue ray for the evenings or other times you are in the apartment...
I look foward to hosting you and your friends!
Other Things to Note
Although it is a 1 bedroom, you can sleep 6 by having 2 in the bedroom, 2 on a L sectional couch, and 2 on the air mattress.
We expect cleanliness and adult behavior. If you break something please don't try to hide it! Tell me so I can replace it! Treat this like your own home or your family's home on best behavior... let me put it this way: when you borrow a friend's car do you return it with the gas tank filled and the car cleaned? the answer is hopefully yes and reflects my expectations of my guests here!
Beautiful and modern 4 unit complex with courtyard and next to the Huntington Beach Art Museum and acroos the street from the library
Upon arriving, there a was a welcome note wa. We had a couple questions and Gil answered the phone right away and was very friendly. The apartment was just as advertised; clean, fairly quiet for being on Main St, had basic household accommodations and was a short walk to downtown and the beach. Our family of 5 loved having a temporary home so close to the water. We felt it was worth every penny and would definitely consider booking with Gil again in the future.
We loved our stay here! We have 3 young kids and this felt like home. Lots of room to sleep us all, we'll stocked with everything we would need. Met Gilles and he was super friendly, accommodating and answered all our questions about what to do, where things are. He was very timely in his response. I can't wait to book it again. Perfect spot and easy walk with kiddos to the beach. Very cozy. Thanks so much Gilles, my girls were crying when we left, lol.
This apartment was just what we were looking for. Our family was visiting Huntington Beach and we needed a place for our older sons to stay since the house we were renting nearby would not hold all of us. The apartment was clean and very convenient to walk to the beach and all of the shops and restaurants on Main Street. Parking on the street was never a problem. There were beach towels, beach chairs and boogie boards in the closet which we thoroughly enjoyed. Gilles was always quick to respond to email inquiries. Some other reviews mentioned the noise from the restaurant AC unit but it didn't bother us.
Gil was a great host. He made great communicating and made it easy for us to check in after lunch when we weren't really sure of what time we would arrive. The apartment it self was very clean and tidy. It felt a lot bigger in real life with a huge lounge room. The kitchen has everything you need and we made a few meals in it no problems. It's location is great. Right on main street and you can walk all the way down it to the beach in under 10 minutes. Being central you would expect parking to be a nightmare but it wasn't. It was a very calming and relaxing place to stay. I would recommend anyone to stay at Gil's apartment.
So much better than a hotel. Just like having your own apartment within 10 minutes of walking distance to Huntington Pier. It was great staying there and Gilles was very accommodating and responsive to any messages I sent. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you Gilles you made me and my families spring break amazing!!
Gilles and his wife were very communicative and helpful with the initial check in process. The apartment was clean and comfy. There was also free and very convenient parking which was great. Full kitchen and bathroom were a plus too!

About the Host, Gilles
I am a long time resident of Huntington Beach and love it. I have lived here for over 30 years... and I promise you will love the apartment!
I also live just 5 blocks away and work just three miles away so as long as I am in town, I can typically handle any situation that may come up...
I have lived in southern california a long time so don't hesitate to ask about destinations, museums, beaches, restaurants, clubs, or anything else you may have a question about!
My personal motto? Seize the Moment!
