“Love it!”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

This was our 4th time, and already have 5th time booked! Just need to add an extra day, 2 days isn't enough! :-) We love the bungalow, ocean and town! Clean, and romantic! I would suggest Akari Bungalows to anyone that was in search of a great location in Long Beach!

My fiance and I wanted to visit the Pacific coast for our first Valentines Day together and staying at Akari was a perfect fit. Everything you need for you stay is within walking distance and the grounds allow easy access to the beach and nearby parks. This is a great place for anybody like myself who does not like to stay at a conventional motel or hotel for there vacation. Having all the amenities inside the room made our stay feel more like "home" and allowed us to relax and enjoy our time together. We both loved having the gas fire place in the room and the wooden floors were also a nice touch. Thank you Kathy for helping us enjoy the beauty of the Washington coast and Astoria, Oregon. Oh and if you like beer and great food check out the Rogue Public Brew House, its one of a kind!!

We love visiting Long Beach in the winter, even knowing the weather would probably be less than desirable. Our criteria for this visit was "dog friendly" as we wanted to bring our corgi, "Gipper" with us this time. We had never stayed at Akari Bungalows before and their well appointed website piqued our interest, so off we went. We spent 4 nights in Bungalow #1 and were more than delighted to see how close we were to the beach and downtown...I mean, just around the corner to the Cottage Bakery? Wow! The Bungalows appear to be built perhaps in the 40's but has been modernized, yet still "beachy"...in other words, perfect! Our unit had a very comfy pillow-top king bed, nicely furnished living room with a gas fireplace, and adequately furnished kitchen...including fresh local roasted coffee beans! Kathy is wonderful and eager to please!

Room Tip: Bungalow #1 is right on the main road to the beach - not a problem during winter when tourism is low...

Akari Bungalow #1 is the perfect beachside retreat. The location is fantastic just steps away from both town and the beach.

The sleeping arrangements are very comfortable and the kitchen is stocked with all essential cooking equiptment. The staff was friendly upon arrival & the accomodations are cleanly.

Highly recommend bungalow #1 to anyone planning a Long Beach getaway, you wont be dissapointed!

The location is great... Short walking distance to Quilt Shop and downtown, plus beach boardwalk and bike trail. It's on the main road to the beach: so expect road noise and the rattle of a garbage truck at 6:00 am. We stayed at the end of summer and the kitchen needed a deep cleaning... The cabin is cute, full kitchen, but could be better organized. Host was very nice, remodeling the office and creating a bakery... that could be a plus. Would I stay again? Maybe. I think the location is #1 reason to stay there... Price range is on the lower end. No view of the ocean, but we walked to the boardwalk in 5 minutes to see a great sunset. Internet signal very weak... a negative! To me, its a typical Shabby/Sheik beach house...

Room Tip: We stayed in #1...it's right on the street. I would recommend choosing a cabin more off the main...

Came for the Rod Run, found the location of the bungalows very close to all the fun, walk to the beach and town for the cruz and shoppin and restuarants. Was a little noisy from the cars and the partying at night but the ear plugs worked well, might be quieter on a different weekend, didn't mind the phone booth shower or the unlevel floors, enjoyed the atomosphere of the age of the bungalow, it didn't have any unpleasant odors in spite of how many people noted in the guest book they had their pets with them. They had coffee beans in the room with a grinder and a press which was a nice feature. The jacuzzi was wonderful. The King size bed was very comfortable but the sheets did have a bit of sand on them it seemed, we didn't have enough clean towels and ran out of toilet paper after the 1st night. There was no one available to go to for these supplies, had to buy our own TP and for that reason the cost of the room should have been a little cheaper. Could have used a little more coverage on the window coverings especially around the jacuzzi and the lawn behind the bungalows could have used a little attention. The checkin was pleasant. My standards are usually pretty high but overall we did enjoy our stay here and have no regrets and I would recommend this place for the charm of it all.

LynetteT:
Thanks for your review! The cars and crowds at Rod Run can indeed be a little loud, but we're glad you enjoyed your stay. As a new management company, we are still working out a few kinks including having someone on-site for resupplying guests with necessary items during their stay.

Thanks again and we hope to see you again someday!

We were at the bungalows in September. We were quite disappointed and definitely will try out other hotels next time. We needed toilet paper and soap from day one and never had it. We had to go out and buy our own. When we called there was not anyone in front to get it for us and no mails around. The password would not work for our laptop. It was one thing after another. Yes, they are private but if you need anything you don't see anyone later the following day.
