The cottage is just steps to Main Street, the beach & pier, 25+restaurants, nightlife, and public transport. You’ll love my place because the location, the comfy bed, the kitchen, the shower & the coziness. You really don't even need a car if you're staying in town. Walk or bike.

The space
This was originally a 1905 carriage house. Over the last 112 years there were additions and it was converted into an artist studio in the 1970s. I bought the place in 1999 and renovated the front house. Then in 2012, I completely renovated the cottage, which is a back house with its own separate yard, for my daughter to live in. I put in a brand new kitchen and a brand new bathroom with a sunken Roman shower. There are 24" tiles in both the kitchen and bathroom. It's small, but because of the open floor plan, it is very spacious.

Guest access
There are always at least 2 beach cruiser bicycles at the cottage that are there for your enjoyment. Huntington Beach is very much a bicycle town and this will give you a great way to get to the beach and around town (free of course). There are also Boogie Boards and beach chairs there for your use (also free). If you are more adventurous and want to get out on a surfboard, I have a great connection for you to either rent your own surfboards or take a private lesson with one the worlds surf legends, all on budget prices.

Other things to note
First, let me talk about cleaning and disinfecting of the cottage:

Cleaned to safety standards as recommended by CDC. We clean and disinfect all high-touch surfaces in household common areas (e.g. tables, hard-backed chairs, doorknobs, light switches, phones, tablets, touch screens, remote controls, keyboards, handles, desks, toilets, sinks) We clean all surfaces using a detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection. Then, for disinfection we then use EPA-registered household disinfectants and for soft (porous) surfaces, we clean with appropriate cleaners indicated for use on these surfaces. After cleaning, we then launder items using the warmest appropriate water setting for the items and dry items completely.

Huntington Beach, California, United States

This cottage is right downtown. The neighborhood is best described as "A small town in the big city". Has a great neighborhood feel to it. People are out and about every day. You are close enough to be right in the middle of it all, but just far enough off to enjoy the privacy and tranquility of both the cottage and the private yard.

I have now been on AirBnB for a while. I really like meeting all the different people from different places. I have also rented this and other properties for a long time and had usually just gone with a handshake deal. This is a beach town after all. As for your stay in HB, I am just down the street and am almost always just a text away to help with anything that you need. I am a lifetime local and have answers to almost anything that you need to know about the local and not so local area. Great secret spots for dining, drinking, shopping, or just getting away from the hustle of Main Street. As a world traveler myself, I really appreciate what I cal the "All or Nothing", sometimes people will give you their All and others give you Nothing. So I want to be able to give you my All and hope you can enjoy your travels and know that you got everything you needed! I am a flip flop wearing hippy and love to travel, sometimes its 5 star, and sometimes its 1 star (or less), but my motto is that "It is the adversity of life that makes the adventure". I am a terrible planner, so this helps me personally when I travel and things sometimes go awry. But this site helps me by booking and collecting and doing everything except getting you the keys. I hope to see you soon.

During your stay
I always like to meet people on arrival, just to say hi, answer any questions you may have, tell you about the neighborhood, etc.. Then I'll leave you alone. But I live a just few blocks away so I am always available via phone or text if you want to know who has the best tacos or where to find a Walmart or anything else about the area. I really enjoy getting to meet all the great people that have come the cottage.
