The apartment is very comfortable and has most everything you need even a place to store your bike. Located in Belmont shores it is close to lots of restaurants, shops, and the beach. The brand new bike/walking trail on the beach (less than a block across the street) runs from the peninsula (where the kite surfing is) to downtown marinas, aquarium, shops and restaurants. About a 20minute bike ride away. Right across the street is a Round table pizza, AM/PM, 7 eleven, liquor store/deli, Vons market , Jack in the box and a kayak shop. Just past Vons is a Mediterranean restaurant and right on the beach is the Belmont Brewery with great view's and food Running out in the water form there is the Veterans Pier which had good fishing and views. There is also a municipal pool and beach volleyball. There is lots of beach and great shape. The 121 bus stops right in front of the apartment and will take you right in to downtown to shops and restaurants, farmers market, art galleries and right to the Catalina Express terminal (20 minute ride). You can also go the other way to 2nd St; a 13 minute walk or 3minute buss ride where there is about 8 blocks of shops, restaurants, bike/kayak rentals and more. Behind and in about 3 blocks is Broadway St where you will find mire shops and restaurants. East driving up and down the coast and you can stay off the freeways if you want and get to most everything. Parking is always a challenge in Long Beach but I stayed here 2 months and never had to park more than 1/2 block away. Bill the owner is very helpful if you need anything. I would go back to this property and would recommend it as a great place to stay.
