This is the outside of our Condo Building. We live in the taller of the two towers about 1/2 of the way up.
This is the street level entrance to our building.
Our "front yard" is actually a Long Beach park that was established in 1899!
In fact on the side of our building you can see some pictures of what the land our Condo is on looked like in 1930.
From 1900 to 1933 our land was home to the Virgina Hotel. The hotel was demolished in 1933 and the land sat vacant and as a parking lot until it became our condos in 2006. The Long Beach coast has changed a lot since 1933!
OK, let's check out the "back" yard!
Here is where the Mr. and I grill out all the time.
The Mr. loves these grills and I love that I don't have to clean them! That's what HOA dues are for! Ha!
One of our favorite things to do is to grill out and then dine by the pool.
Speaking of... here is the pool and spa.
I love the spa! I'd say I use it 2-4 times a week depending on the week!
Next to the pool there is also a fireplace and lounge seating.
And to prove what a bad photographer I am, here's a professional photo from our developer of our condo tower and the pool/spa. Ha!
And last but not least, here is our garage. That's my red car.
We actually own these parking spots. They are literally in our condo "deed." Crazy, huh?
Living in a condo definitely has it's advantages and disadvantages -- but the amenities are a definite advantage. And all and all, I love where we live. Our home is the perfect home for us for the stage of life we are in.
Thanks for taking the condo tour!
