Cozy, quaint, and conveniently located...
I cannot say enough about Casita Gundry! It's conveniently located near Long Beach airport, local coffee shops, restaurants, and artsy neighborhood bars. Making it a perfect base camp while exploring Southern Cali. You can feel the care and attention to detail through its design, aesthetics, and functional use of space. All while still maintaining a warm and cozy feeling. I knew this place was special when greeted with a personalized note, homemade cookies (yum!), in addition to other thoughtful goodies. It felt like my private little oasis. Would highly recommend and will definitely stay again. :)

Pristine, beautiful, perfect host
Lars was communicative and accommodating before we even booked. Casita Gundry has got to be the best hidden gem in all Long Beach. It was not simply clean- it was PRISTINELY clean. Every inch immaculate- Lars left fruits, cookies, eggs and a personalized note on the fridge. He checked in via text, and can be as involved or uninvolved as you want him to be in your visit. The place was full of privacy, it felt like magic getting to stay in such a well-crafted space. Every inch was beautiful. So many towels. Warm even in winter. Amazing bathtub and spacious porch out back. We were looking for more than a stay and we got it- this place is an experience in itself. We will be back, and will recommend Lars’ familial hospitality to everyone we care about coming through Long Beach! Love you Lars!

Great stay
We stay there the whole weekend and it was wonderful!! The place is super clean and beautiful!! We loved that we had keyless access and that there’s a patio in the back for us to enjoy! Our host was excellent and made us feel welcome. This is actually our 3/4th time booking this place. Highly recommend it!!
