The location of this property is perfect whether you like the Ocean or the Bay. We stayed in this location because we have adult children, with infants, who live in the area. We were able to enjoy our stay and have the family together at a very fun house. Situated directly across the street from Alamitos Bay, the amount of activity is almost non-stop during the day. They close off Bay Shore Ave to motor traffic during the day all summer, which presents some parking challenges, but the lack of traffic makes getting around the area on foot much easier. And, the house was well insulated so that once inside there was no outside noise.
