Sweet Spot in Seal Beach
We enjoyed the property and walked along the beach to the cute Seal Beach downtown (15 minutes) several times for meals and ice cream. Very convenient location and the hosts were wonderful. Easy access to Long Beach, Huntington Beach and Newport. Also enjoyed walking around Bolsa Chica Reserve and beach just 15 minutes by car. We enjoyed our time at the property and in the area very much. Nice to have a dedicated parking spot. Property is very cutely decorated with a pineapple theme and has everything one might need.

Missed opportunity
Unfortunately 12 hours prior to my trip the flight was canceled and I wasn't able to book another one. Working with the owners was marvelous. They were super sympathetic and tried to be as accommodating as they could given the circumstances but unfortunately nothing was able to be done. If their property is half as amazing as they are then it's gotta be 10/10

Location
Front door faced alley. Really believed that there was an area to sit outside. We could have gone on the roof and sit, but there wasn’t a view

Seal Beach Getaway: Pros & Cons
Pros: 1) The walkability to the beach (it’s just around the corner), 2) the walkability to nearby restaurants, and 3) the amazing deck (which is shared with another rental, but we had it all to ourselves when we stayed). Cons: 1) The mattress in the bedroom was ridiculously uncomfortable…somehow both lumpy and with a dip in the center, 2) there are so many labels around the property, that it’s hard to relax (e.g. there are literally three on the toilet alone), and 3) the check-in process was very involved. Overall assessment: The poor quality of the mattress is the only thing that would keep me from staying here again. Otherwise, it’s a great property!
