* City Approved Vacation Rental *
The house is located 1/2 block to the best section of the beach and the pier. Main Street is just steps away with it's wonderful quaint village atmosphere. Great boutique shopping and an excellent variety of coffee houses, bars, ice cream parlors and truly fantastic restaurants. Casual to upscale, Main Street has it all.

Spend a day at the beach and then return to the private yard for a dip in the pool or a soak in the spa. This unique property offers the best of beach living.

Upstairs home with spacious open concept kitchen, great room with vaulted ceiling comfy couches and big screen television. Bedroom 1 has a king bed, the Bedroom 2 has a queen and a twin bed, bathroom with tub/shower and washer/dryer.

Downstairs has a small kitchenette (no stove or oven), bathroom with shower, Bedroom 3 with king bed, and a den with two twin daybeds, a desk and a big screen television. The stairway from upstairs to downstairs is exterior only.

This is a duplex rented as a single home. As a result, the stairway between the two is exterior only. This may be a consideration if you need to sleep lots of little ones as you will want an adult on each floor. Also good to know is the upstairs bath is located off the hallway between the two bedrooms and the downstairs bath is located off the den.

A large picture window overlooks the private front yard and the sparkling pool, eight person spa, outdoor furniture, patio and gas BBQ, all surrounded by beautiful gardens. The entire yard is fenced from the street and the pool/spa has a child fence.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect Seal Beach vacation rental!
We just got back from a fantastic 4 days at Pam's Seal Beach vacation rental. The house had everything you could possibly need, and it's literally a block away from Main St / Old Towne Seal Beach (restaurants, bars, shopping). Plus, it's 1.5 blocks to the beach, an ideal location. We didn't use our car once during our stay. It's also a very unique property to Seal Beach, in that it has a pool, spa, and yard. You actually feel like you have some privacy, vs people walking by your front window on their way to the beach. Lastly, Pam is a fantastic host. Very responsive, and the home was incredibly well stocked with everything you could possibly want in a vacation rental. We'll definitely be back!

Really fun
My grandkids and I had a wonderful time at the beach house. The upstairs was very comfortable. We didn’t need the down stairs. The kitchen was very user friendly and well stocked. Beds were comfortable. Pool was great. A little stressful checking in but it was a glitch with VRBO. Pam was super nice and helpful. Definitely will come back.

Great Beach house in the heart of town
Great location, large clean house. Walk to the beach and town easily. Closing hours for the main commercial businesses at 10pm kept noise to a minimum and wasn’t and issue. We were two families both with kids 2 kids each both 4 years old and 8 years old. Only utilized the updated upstairs unit primarily but did occasionally use the lower level for the bathroom. House was clean, Pam was very responsive. Yard was nice. Kids loved the pool and jacuzzi. All amenities we needed were available. Only thing lacking was a net/screen pole for the pool to skim the pool of any debris but the kids still jumped in and got over the fact of occasional floating leaves haha.

Great House. Great Location. A couple issues...
We LOVE Seal Beach! My husband & I went to high school in the area & we love returning to visit family & friends, and give our kids a sense of what our high school years were like. We have stayed at this house before and had a wonderful time. The only thing that was different this time is that there were cameras around the property that weren't there before and it changed our entire experience. Note: the cameras we're NOT Disclosed on the house description as required BY LAW. We felt like we were being watched the entire time. From the moment we arrived "the neighbors" were reporting that there were too many people and too much noise coming from the property. Mind you we have 3 kiddos that were playing in the pool and a couple of old high school friends that stopped by to hang out on a Saturday afternoon. We were not having a wild & crazy party by any means. Also know that the entire outside of the home "closes" at 10pm. Meaning you need to be inside with windows closed at that time. Meanwhile the house backs up to an alley within shouting distance of 2 bars & and lots of noise coming from the alley. Other than that the house is in a great location to walk to the local shops, restaurants & the beach!
