Wonderful cottage - it is in a great location, close to the beach and minutes away from 2nd Street with lovely shops and restaurants. In the evenings it was lovely & warm, we found it very spacious for our family 4 adults and toddler.
Diana is a lovely host and made booking, arrival and our stay so simply - we had never done this before! She was happy to help make our stay perfect.
Diana has a lovely home and you really can't beat the location to enjoy the Long Beach Belmont Shore area. She was also a wonderful host, truly opening her home for use, following up with us helpfully and otherwise boasting a minimal checkin / checkout process. We hope to stay here again in the future.
We were looking for an experience of the Long Beach "The Shore" lifestyle and, boy, did we get it! Diana's house has even more warmth and character than you see in the pictures and the neighbourhood is so charming, we found ourselves wandering around the streets at night. The location of the house is simply perfect - one block to the left and you have all the restaurants/shops you can want while one block to the right and you are on the beach. Diana provides you with all the snacks and beach equipment you could wish for (beach towels, chairs, bags, coolers, etc.) and you never went wrong foodwise with her recommendations. She was also extremely responsive to our questions/requests - we asked for a kettle and we had one delivered to our door the next morning. Lastly, as a great example of her thoughtfulness, she sent a lovely gift of baby products when she found out I was pregnant. I cannot recommend this place or the host highly enough.
Me, my husband, mother, and 8 month old daughter all stayed at Diana's Belmont Shore home for a week, and it was lovely. Wonderful location, we ate at great restaurants and gelato places, and shopped on 2nd street, a short walk away. The beautiful beach was even closer. The neighborhood is so nice to walk in. We had access to Diana's beach bikes and a private parking space. She also supplied us with lots of nice snacks. The house was well stocked with everything we needed. Though we never met, Diana was easy to reach via phone and text. We used the washer and dryer frequently because of the baby, and initially the washer wasn't working properly. Diana was very responsive and walked us through fixing it with her workarounds, and she seemed willing to call in a pro if that didn't work. The beds were very comfortable, and on cold nights the old school house heater was excellent. Even though the house is quite old (built in 1926!), it's quaint, and suited our needs perfectly.
Great beach cottage. Location and setup was excellent. Diana was exceptional and was very responsive. She was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her place. You won't be disappointed!
The Beachy Chic Cottage is the perfect location ... near the beach and wonderful restaurants and shops!
We stayed in Diana's wonderful bungalow with our 7-month-old son and absolutely loved it. It is a very quaint and unique house in a perfect location to explore the beach, the canals in Naples and the bustling activity of second street in Belmont Shore.
With this house, you are really staying in somebody's home, as opposed to some other offerings on airbnb where the host has cleared all personal belongings. If you are expecting a neutral space void of personal belongings, this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for a personal touch and lots of charm, this is a gem.
The couple who had stayed in the house before us had brought their dog and when we moved in there were still a lot of dog hairs left. This could have caused problems but instead Diana used this opportunity to show what an excellent host she is by instantly arranging for the cleaning service to come in and take care of the problem.
Thank you very much for an excellent stay!
Three words; location, location, location! Not only is this a gorgeous little house with old world charm, it is a block and a half from the beach and two blocks from a great selection of dining and bars on 2nd Street. Diana was a great hostess and I look forward to staying here again.
