Adjacent (10 minutes by bike) to 5 star Huntington Beach where surfing championships are held.
2 of the 3 Huntington beaches, were (list came out July 2012) rated by the "Natural Resources Defense Council" as being in the top 3 of California's cleanest beaches and taking two spots in the 12 cleanest beaches in the nation. Bolsa Chica State Beach and Huntington Beach received 5 star ratings...and Bolsa Chica State Beach and Huntington Beach are 5 minutes drive to the house..or a 15 minute bike ride. Ample parking on the beach. Plus bike path. Bolsa Chica wetlands are across the street from the beach. Sunset Beach and Seal Beach are just north of Huntington (URL HIDDEN) electric boat can be rented about 2 miles away and driven through the harbor and tied up at the house boat dock. Or if you are a member of any boat club, you can take advantage of special rates here at Huntington Harbor and rent a boat for your stay and tie it up at the house. Take it to a restaurant for a relaxing dinner (several restaurants have boat docks) and have cheese and wine on board as you move through the channels.
More paddle boards or kayaks can also be rented nearby and kept at the dock and you can paddle through the channel at your leisure....or you can recline on the lounges on the deck or in the brand new hot tub spa jacuzzi with lights and massage jets, and different positions and foot massage, etc and watch others paddle or kayak by or just enjoy the view of an occasional passing boat, a seal, sting ray or beautiful bird.
Remember, the Bolsa Chica Wetlands are very close and offer an amazing excursion on foot into a natural habitat for birds...and many of these birds visit us on the island. We are not on the main channel so there is not much boat traffic at all. But we are very convenient to everything. A Trader Joe's is 5 minutes by car. So when you are at the house, it is quiet and relaxing and feels like miles away...but in reality, restaurants and movies and the beach town of Huntington Beach, known as Surf City, USA is very nearby.
Incredible two story entry, the home is cozy even with the 5 bedroom suites. It has been decorated by an interior designer with premium furnishings. Head On Views of the water from every angle of the great room downstairs.
Security System although area is very safe and VERY QUIET and we do not use it.
There is a bike path right on the beach at Huntington Beach (one can have a leisurely walk to the sand beach, or drive 10 minutes there by bike or 5 minutes by car).Sunset Beach, Seal Beach and Long Beach, where there is a big marina and the Queen Mary and Long Beach Aquarium are to the north. 2nd street in Long Beach has many restaurants and is off PCH (Pacific Coast Highway--Highway 1). If you don't want to use our bikes or drive them to the beach, you can rent bikes by the hour or day on the beach.
Downtown Huntington Beach is a surfer haven (known as Surf City, USA) and well known beach resort with a Duke's restaurant on the beach, a pier with restaurant and many shops and restaurants. The Bolsa Chica Wetlands are across the street from the beach at Warner and PCH and can be accessed from Warner or PCH. It offers a beautiful habitat for many varieties of birds and fish. Huntington Beach is the only beach in Southern California that has fire pits and allows cooking on the beach at night. This is a fun, lively area with countless things to do although it is very quiet at the house .
A big shopping mall (Bellaterra) with movie theaters, restaurants stores, etc. is 10-15 minutes drive by car. The open ocean is accessible from the house by motor boat as well.
South Coast Plaza, a nationally famous shopping mall with high end and designer shops is about 20-25 minutes away by car. Or you can drive about 1 hour to Beverly HIlls and visit Rodeo Drive. But many of the shops on Rodeo Drive can be found at South Coast Plaza. Downtown Los Angeles is a 35 minute drive and Hollywood a 45 minute drive, depending on traffic. I recommend using the app "WAZE" on your cell phone for voice guided navigation. It is a great navigation system that will approximate times to destination and also integrate traffic.
The University of California at Irvine (UCI) is about 25 minutes drive by car and the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) is about one hour by car to La Jolla. There is horse racing close by at Del Mar (in San Diego county but closer than La Jolla) There are county fairs here during the summer, in Costa Mesa, Del Mar, and Pomona. There is an airport at Long Beach (LGB) that handles national flights that is 20 minutes away. And there is John Wayne Airport in Orange County (SNA) that is about 25 minutes drive away, which also handles national flights. San Diego's International Airport (SAN) is about 1 1/2 hours away and has international flights. LAX , which is the largest and busiest international airport is about 30-35 minutes away, depending on how fast you drive. Check (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or your smart phone for specific driving times.
Trips to Catalina (an island a few miles off the coast ) can be arranged from Long Beach by boat,plane, or helicopter which you can access about twenty minutes up the coast.
This is truly a stunning property in a beach resort area going both up and down the coast. It is approximately 35 minutes to downtown Los Angeles and 50 minutes-1 hour drive north to Santa Monica. It is approximately a 1 hour drive to La Jolla in San Diego County, or if you are adventuresome,..less than two hours drive to Mexico...first Tijuana, then Rosarito beach and beyond.
The beach area around here in Huntington Beach is truly beautiful with big wide sand beaches and is much less crowded than north of here. All beaches in California are public and have public access. And the weather at the house is sensational. Rarely windy with clean air and perfect humidity, the house feels calm and private yet in reality is very convenient to everything.
And every water sport is available in the vicinity....there are romantic rides on gondolas with gondoliers through the channels about 20 minutes away. One can also rent an electric boat for a ride through the channels., go parasailing, hang gliding, whale watching...watch the top surfers practice their sport... The advantage of Huntington Beach is that it is not so far south as to be inconvenient to downtown Los Angeles, (compared to Newport Beach) and it is also reasonably close to Laguna and Newport (about 30 minutes drive).
The nights are quiet (here in the harbor but lively in the town of Huntington Beach) so you'll sleep soundly...lulled by the beach air and enticing California weather. This is the California lifestyle of those that have found their paradise at the Southern beach towns of California... which include celebrities and many CEOs. Sandra Bullock had a house very nearby and we'd run into her at popular restaurants. You'll understand why this place is so desirable when you come here. The weather is truly spectacular. Many a day I come here and it is warmer than in Hollywood on cooler days and cooler than Hollywood on too hot days. It is perfect here. We have a very temperate climate that most would describe as ideal. Not a lot of humidity but also not too dry. It is foggy sometimes in the winter due to proximity to ocean.
We can arrange housekeeping services if desired for an additional charge. We can also provide you a list of names of private chefs who will come to the house and cook and clean up. You provide the food and pay for these services separately of course.
An LG high efficiency, front loading steamer/washer and dryer come with the house and may be used according to the instructions provided. There are many many options as these are high efficiency front loading machines that require HE detergent, which is on hand at the house.
The kitchen has a head on view of the water as well.
Public Golf course literally 10 minutes away.
. Guest AccessHigh end jacuzzi, 2 single kayaks, 1 double kayak, 1 paddle board. May rent and dock a boat here. Interaction with GuestsWhen we are able, we love to meet our guests and give them a personal tour. The NeighborhoodQuiet -serene -beautiful and convenient to everything. On the water..access to water via boat dock and deck. Watch the fish, kayaks and paddle boards moving across the water. Relax in the big jacuzzi. BarBQ on the deck. Read on the chaise lounges. Relax in paradise with usually incredible weather. Not very windy in this area. Never too hot (above 90 (URL HIDDEN) Goldilocks would say....just right. Getting AroundYou need a car if you want to sight see. However, you could walk to the market and manage without a car easily. And just use lyft or uber. Other Things to NoteWe require a 30 day minimum rental agreement but if you only stay a few days or a week within that time, no problem--you are paying accordingly--not extra. But we can only rent once every 30 days. We also require a liability waiver as we have a jacuzzi and are located on the water and include kayaks and paddle boards in the rental. And you may BBQ and generally enjoy asll aspects of the property.
Once you book, I have several recommendations of things to see and do in and around Huntington Beach, including boat rentals, surf board rental, lessons, etc.
If you want to discuss different times of arrival or departure, we can be accomodating in some circumstances...But please ask us first and in advance. Otherwise, the stated times apply.
