About Buckita Benson


Welcome to Hermosa, the town we live in and love! This is a picture of me and my Aunt at her 90th birthday celebration. Our vacation home is all about spending time with family.

Buckita Benson purchased this house in 1990

Why Buckita Benson chose Hermosa Beach

This location is considered, by South Bay real estate experts, to be one of the top three lots on the Hermosa Beach Strand. It's on a corner and oversized, it's north of the pier, and sits on the 'sunny side' of the street. Most Strand homes have a small deck in front.... we choose this location because of the large deck and huge ocean front side yard.

What makes this house unique

We specialize in monthly stays, international stays, and corporate housing. We also accommodate folks building or remodeling locally.

The Presidente hosts one the largest amounts of private use outdoor space on The Strand.

Fantastic beach house!

  • 5 of 5

A beatiful home in an excellent location. The home is well appointed with everthing that you think you may need on a beach vacation and then even more. The layout of the home and patios are ideal.There are great restaurants in walking distance. The property owner was very hospitable. Our family truly enjoyed our vacation and would like to return in the future.

Owner's Response: We specialize in month long rentals (4 weeks). It is our pleasure to provide everything needed for a truly wonderful beach holiday...down to the sunscreen. The Presidente Casita and the Vista Casita have been described, by past guests, as: " very nice in photos and fantastic in person. The "Four Seasons" of vacation rentals." Reservations are available up to 11 months in advance, with returning guests receiving first consideration. Kind regards, Casitas del Mar, Hermosa Beach, CA

Hermosa Beach, our favorite!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at this property several times, and we are absolutely in love with Hermosa Beach! We are a family of four, and love the accommodations. The property is appointed with anything and everything you could possibly need while you are there. All you need is to pack a suitcase. The property is in a fantastic location with many restaurants and charming shops to visit. This property is spotless, and our favorite feature is the outdoor patio. Whether you want to enjoy a quiet morning, watch a fun volleyball match, or a beautiful sunset, this is the spot. There has not been a day that has gone by that a passerby has not said how nice the property is. This location is PERFECT for anyone wanting to enjoy the beautiful beaches of Southern California. It is close to many attractions like Disneyland, and Hollywood, but honestly, our family (including the kids) never want to leave. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind, and one of the only places we have been where we didn't feel like we needed a vacation from vacation. It is very apparent that there is pride of ownership. Each time we visit we notice something that has been added or improved upon. The owner is very friendly, and hospitable. We would highly recommend this property to everyone, and look forward to returning after each visit. (Our kids actually cry when it is time to return home...they love it THAT much).

Most Amazing Property!!

  • 5 of 5

This property could not be more wonderful. The pictures do not do it justice. So clean, quiet and well kept. We wanted for nothing while there. Loved every minute of it. There were plenty of supplies for the beach, bikes, games, etc. Hated to leave, and cannot wait to return. There was a map in the pantry to remind you where everything was ie grocery store, etc. The owner was so friendly and would stop by to make sure all was well but never intrusive.

Such an amazing property!!

We could not get any closer to the beach. Situated on a corner lot afforded us a large side yard with all ammanities, including toys fo tots. There was nothing left out including biles which we took full advantage of.

The owner was more than gracious and gave us the oppertunity for an advance check in. I would recommend the property to who ever wishes to be on the sand, location is prim. Walking ditance from the cottage is Hermosa Pier and Square offering a range of out door eateries and shops.

The family is considering this as an annual location for future reunions. .

Hermosa Beach
Car: not necessary

The living room's two sets of double doors open to the oceanfront and Strand deck. It's as if you are inside and outside at the same time. You're all of 10 feet to the sand and a short stroll to the water. Words can't describe the feeling you'll have from this location!

The Presidente Casita has an oversized bricked patio with a fire pit for lounging in this idyllic setting and watching the world go by. Enjoy the private enclosed courtyard with lounge chairs, natural gas grill and granite dining table. The master bedroom also hosts a beautiful ocean view.

Surf or play beach volleyball in front of the house. Children's swings are nearby on the beach. The Historic Hermosa Pier offers fishing and strolling an 8 minute walk away. Downtown Hermosa has the famous Comedy & Magic Club where you can catch Jay Leno and Ray Romano.
