Such an amazing place to stay! Couldn’t ask for a better place to stay. Being in walking distance to the beach was a plus!

This place was a relief to stay at after hopping from hotel to hotel. This condo was CLEAN!!!! Although it’s small, it doesnt feel like it! It feels fresh and relaxing. My boys loved the game system and the bikes. Location was perfect. Bed was extremely comfortable. We will stay here again.

We had a fabulous time staying here. Not too far away from Main Street. We drove our bikes there from the house and got there in no time. The house is nice and clean and very well decorated. Our kids enjoyed having their own bedrooms and my husband and I loved the fireplace in the bedroom. Highly recommend this spot!

This property is beyond perfect! Luxury was the perfect description! It was a new clean remodeled unit. The property was so clean! It smelled like heaven and the towels and bedding were all so soft! Seriously I’ve never stayed in a cleaner airbnb. The area was beautiful & safe & very close to the ocean. The neighborhood was in general very quiet and great for families. Our only negative experience were the other people that rented their other unit to the south/above us. They had a bunch of loud teenage boys. They played movies loud and you can hear the base through the walls and then they stomped above our bedroom every night when getting ready for bed. But it wasn’t that bad. They provided so many nice little touches in the bathroom and kitchen- like plenty of TP, paper towels, ziplock bags, shampoo etc… There were (Hidden by Airbnb) devices for playing music and great speakers and huge tv’s and even an array of game systems! Renting the bikes is a MUST! We loved them and the accessibility to bike almost anywhere! They have a baby carrier to attach to one of the ebikes too which made toting the kids around easy! Beach toys, boogie boards, surf boards, wagon etc. Anything & everything you would want for the perfect home away from home! Check in & Out & Communication was easy, they responded right away every time even for dumb questions on our part. haha. I will absolutely stay here again!!! Most likely next summer

Great place! Easy check in. Strong WiFi. All the important things – quality furniture, comfy mattress, Sonos sound bar, fluffy towels and robes… Everything you’d possibly need for a home away from home was thought of here. Home has incredible feng shui. Would definitely stay here again. Keith & Richard were very responsive to all of my questions. Our only issue was hearing the other residents through the walls from time to time, but like any condominium or apartment complex with thin walls, that’s par for course. It took nothing away from our stay and thankfully the condo has quiet hours from 10p to 8am to help abate the sound.

Our family just got home from our stay and we couldn’t have been more pleased. It looked exactly like the pictures. It had everything you could think of that you would need. The bed was comfortable, the room darkening curtains were great for sleep. Our son loved the Xbox and PlayStation. (Hidden by Airbnb) Home was really cool. The beach wagon and chairs and toys were a great touch. They really thought of everything you could possibly need, down to every charger imaginable. I loved the laundry app that you could load money on and then start the washer and dryer from your phone and it would alert you when the load was done. The walk to the beach wasn’t bad at all. It took us about 7-10 minutes with a slow walking child and it was really convenient to have a hose outside to hose him off before we went back inside. Richard and Keith both were really easy to get in touch with when we had questions about the area and the unit. The hot water in the shower took a while to warm up, but it really wasn’t a big issue for us. We can’t wait to stay again.

Great place to stay

I hate writing this review because I was so excited to stay here based on all of the great reviews from others, but I feel like if you are considering staying here, you should know this happened. Upon booking Richard’s place about a month ahead of time, communication from him was great. He sent a list of some of his favorite nearby places a few days before we were leaving, which I thought was a great touch and it got us so excited for our stay! He also sent clear house rules, check in instructions, etc. at that time. The day of our reservations, we got an email saying the unit Airbnb confirmed in our original confirmation was not the unit we’d be staying in. This was a bit alarming (bait and switch?) and confusing as all of the additional instructions sent from the owner had named the original unit (2) along with unit 2’s parking spot and garage. When I messaged the hosts to clarify, they confirmed that yes, I should use the parking spot and garage for unit 2. Huh? I ended up taking a screen shot of the previous message from them that said I would in fact be staying in Unit 1 and sending it. Keith stated that that was a mistake that was happening to those that reserved unit 1, not 2, and apologized. I was still a bit confused (and unsettled) as we had reserved unit 2 to begin with, but chalked it up to miscommunication. My husband, our 4 year old, and I arrived at noon. In the check in instructions the hosts had mentioned that we could park there starting at noon and utilize the beach gear stored in the garage (for Unit 2). This was a great perk that we utilized (beach wagon + beach chairs) until our kiddo was pooped and desperately needed a short nap. So, we arrived to the unit at 4 pm on the dot, and when I opened the door…it was a DISASTER. I called the owner immediately and Keith was confused and said he would be right there. He arrived quickly and told us that he discovered there was an “instant book” the night before that they did not know about, so the unit had not been recleaned. He offered to clean it for us quickly but said it would take about an hour. We didn’t feel comfortable with a “quick clean” in light of Covid and my son was not going to just sit there for an hour, so we ended up booking a nearby hotel. We did get all of our money back, but ended up paying about 3 times as much for a hotel last minute. That really put a damper on the rest of our trip – it would have been nice if they’d offered to compensate us for the inconvenience. Based on the other reviews I do believe this was probably an isolated incident, but if you choose to do instant booking as an owner, it’s your responsibility to keep on top of bookings.

If you are looking to stay in Huntington Beach, this place is a gem! Just a mile from Main Street (Killarney’s and Shabu on the Fire are fantastic), half a mile from adorable Sweet Elle cafe for coffee, and just three blocks to the beach! This home is cozy, clean, and quiet. A great little getaway. Richard and Keith also provide beach chairs/umbrella. Although we didn’t use the ebikes, they looked fantastic. As for Richard and Keith themselves, their communication is top notch! Clear and easy instructions provided, along with nearby hotspots. I had a few questions during our stay, and they were quick to reply. I could say so many great things, but I’ll just say that if you need a place in Huntington Beach, book this one. Thanks, Keith and Richard!

This condo is fantastic. Excellent location, close to the beach & many restaurants & shops. Beautifully decorated & impeccably clean. The hosts are extremely accommodating & pride themselves on making sure their guests have an exceptional experience. Can’t wait to vacation there again!

Jill

Wonderful clean place, well appointed, blocks from the beach. Host was responsive and helpful. Son loved the big TV and PlayStation.

Ed

5/5

Place was great! Location was perfect. We really enjoyed the electric beach cruisers and the convenience of everything you would need for the beach being there. It was nice coming from Montana and not having to worry about chairs, umbrellas, strollers, etc. Great place for kids. Main Street has amazing places to eat and things to do. Sugar Shack is a must! Everything was very clean. The sheets, towels and blankets smelled very clean. The hosts were very attentive and responsive.

Logan

5/5

Beautiful place to stay! Very cozy condo that has everything you could possibly need for a perfect beach getaway. The hosts are super accommodating and welcoming. Bottle of wine and fresh flowers – a sweet surprise and welcoming touch! Three blocks from the beach and a quick bike ride into town. Beach wagon, chairs, umbrella, towels, cooler, etc. Nice neighbors! Richard shared unlimited recommendations with us for food and entertainment – extremely responsive. Kitchen has all the utensils you could need. House has multiple phone chargers and (Hidden by Airbnb) devices in every room to play music. Richard made our stay so enjoyable – we did not want to leave!

We had a fun 3 days here at HB! The location was perfect with the beach so close and tons of restaurants all walking/biking distance. The unit itself was clean and just like the pics advertised. Definitely would reccomend and love to return!

5/5

What an amazing amazing place to stay! The pictures don’t do it justice, as soon as you walk in it feels like a home instead of a vacation rental! There were so many thoughtful touches throughout the entire place that made the stay so enjoyable. The location is perfect, your a quick walk or bike ride from downtown which is amazing if you rent the bikes (highly recommend!) You are not only right by the ocean, but also right by beach access. We had so much fun in Huntington and even went on some day trips to Balboa, Venice, and Disney Land which just goes to show how prime the location is. It was so nice to have designated parking and not have to worry about parking on the street, along with the spot being easy to get into. Also have to mention that I didn’t know a bed could be so comfortable especially in an air bnb! Richard and Keith were phenomenal hosts as they were extremely responsive helpful along with also adding so much to our trip with their recommendations on things to do! We can’t wait to come back and couldn’t recommend this place enough!

Hannah

5/5

Several blocks from the beach, outside the hectic main drag of Huntington yet close enough to walk or ride a bike. Great details at the house to include coffee and expresso, video games/ movies and even music throughout the house. The bed was very comfortable and everything was super clean. I highly recommend this house.

Dan

5/5

Richard is top-notch! He replies super fast I had no issues finding the place! All the neighbors are super friendly as well they showed us where to park and were super warm and inviting! Richard has all the amenities you can dream of! Every little detail you can think of from the chargers to be able to say “Hey (Hidden by Airbnb) what’s the weather like today” to provide a high chair and pack’n play for my baby boy. ❤️ Even provided a bottle of wine as a thank you. Super close to the beach, about a 10 min walk with a baby that is ♥️. I love the half door, I want one now. We were able to feel the beautiful breeze and it was perfect for my 1-year-old son. Richard even provided water for us in the refrigerator, he did not miss a beat! I recommend this host 100%!! Thank you for everything you made the experience smooth, inviting, convenient, and inviting! Also, love the fact that we had super convenient parking. Last but not least I cannot forget all the games! My bf is a huge gamer so we had one night of games with the incredible surround sound I felt like we were in a movie theater! Thanks again for making our first family trip an unforgettable one

Thanks so much! We loved the location and all the thoughtful touches in the condo. The beach is just a short walk and absolutely gorgeous! We walked to a coffee shop and found restaurants close by as well. The condo was sparkling clean and the hosts thought of everything you could possibly need! Our only regret was that we couldn’t stay longer! We will be back!!!

Amazing place to stay!

Madi

5/5

First of all, you couldn’t get closer to the beach unless it was actually on the water. Richards place was super close not only to the beach but was about a ten minute walk to Main st., with all the shops and restaurants. Really nice decor, mellow neighborhood, super clean place..plus pooch (Website hidden by Airbnb) was better than I expected and I would 100% book with Richard again… thank you!

This place was a great location for a girls vacation

Drea

5/5

This stay exceeded all expectation… not far from anything, and the host went above and beyond with ammmenities, video games, I pad, (Hidden by Airbnb) home, not to mention charger cords everywhere you would sit down.

Melanie

5/5

An absolutely beautiful “home” to stay in. I did not want to leave. If you need anything, it is here. This condo feels like coming home after a long day. There were chargers for phones, q-tips (which I always manage to forget to pack), extra pillows and blankets and so much more. I can’t wait to go back. Definitely worth the stay. A gem find

Vanessa

5/5

This stay was one of a kind. The hosts provide a NUMBER of amenities ranging from electric bikes that are amazing for the nearby coastline or just cruising through the city, even down to beach umbrellas and surfboards. they literally provide everything and that is my first time experiencing that from a host. We didn’t even have to take our phone chargers out of our bags. The condo legitimately felt like a home away from home and it takes a LOT for us to feel that comfortable. Probably the best bnb I’ve had the privilege of staying in. 11/10 recommend

Ty

5/5

Keith was an outstanding host. Everything looked exactly as the pictures. The location was prime with the beach, stores, and restaurants being close by. We loved the extra touches and amenities (75 in tv, PlayStation/Xbox, phone charges in living room and bedroom, complimentary bottle of wine, the list goes on). This will be our go to spot every time when returning to Huntington. To say the least, the beach house exceeded our expectations.

Jose

5/5

Surpassed our expectations. Everything was very new and clean and an all around enjoyable spot to stay, minutes from the beach. The hosts were helpful and easy to contact when we arrived to check in fairly late at night. We appreciated the thoughtful gesture they left for us…Our only regret was the shortness of our trip but we hope to return in the future.

The location of Richard’s place is perfect! Walking distance to the beach and a 5 minute drive from restaurants and shops. Such a beautiful place and so clean! Loved staying here.

Kapua

This is the perfect place to stay in HB. Just minutes away from the beach on foot and so many luxuries inside the home. Everything was very clean and anything that you would need, they provided. The host was very responsive. I will absolutely be booking again!

Kathryn

5/5

Wonderful vacation home for our small family of 4 two adults & 2 small children, Richard & Keith provided us with all the beach equipment which was wonderful. The walk or bike ride to the beach was beautiful. The hosts pay a lot of attention to detail, the thoughtful welcome arrival note with the bottle of wine, the fresh yellow flowers was such a nice touch. Especially for those who capture every moment on social media. The home is just like in the pictures, but better! The bed & sheets were so comfortable, everything was so clean! This Airbnb was such a great experience. I highly recommend.

Brenda

My family stayed at the apartment and it was amazing! Everything we could have asked for great neighborhood, super friendly neighbors. Everyone went out of their way to give us an incredible experience. Great access to the beach and Main Street Huntington.

Kyle

5/5

Great location and well done space, you can see the effort put into the details. Would easily recommend to anyone looking for a place in the area. The electric Bikes were one of the highlights of the whole trip.

Andy

5/5

This was a truly great weekend. Thank you so much for putting so much attention to detail into the stay. You had EVERYTHING we could need in a luxurious way! Great spot for a romantic weekend getaway (and you can bring your pups). Keith thought of everything: Nespresso, full sonos soundsystem, xbox/ps4, high quality towels, all the beach things you’d ever need, and it’s all 2bout 2 blocks form the beach!

Hunter

5/5

Awesome place and location! Loved it!

Robert

5/5

Loved it! Short five minute walk to the beach, but why walk when you can ride the electric bikes! The place is furnished like a high end hotel. Richard or his designer has great tatste. We can’t wait to get back this summer, please leave the light on 🙂

Michael

5/5

Forewarning: this isn’t a private place at all. I selected “entire place” in the filters to have a nice vacation with my family, and when I arrived it was a multiplex apartment unit that shared a common area which was being used by all the other tenants. We decided to cancel and book a hotel instead.

Giacomo

5/5

Just Wow! It’s rare enough to find a beach close condo that is pet friendly, but one that has been fully remodeled, w/ no expense spared (75”/4K TV, Xbox & PlayStation, Expresso Machine & Keurig Coffee Maker) and such attention to the small details (device chargers, curling iron, IPad, quarters for the W&D!) You can’t beat the location, just a short 3 blocks to the beach, another 3 blocks north is HB’s Dog Beach, our pups loved running off-leash into the surf! Two neighborhood markets, two blks away each with their own deli… Last, but as they say certainly not least, Richard provides 2 brand new adult size electric bikes and 2 kids bikes (self pedal). There is an extra charge for the E-bikes, but much cheaper than normal rentals and so much more convenient, w/out the pending time limits… We will obviously be back! Thank you Richard, you’re the best!

Keith

You can start the day with tea bed delivered by your host at a time that suits you followed by breakfast. When you return from skiing there’s afternoon tea and home-made cake.
