The best vacation yet!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your Cottage on the Strand. You went above and beyond to make us comfortable. The house was equiped with everything that we needed and it all matched in your blue and white beachy decor. The house is located near it all. We parked our car at the house and walked everywhere the entire week! We would recommend this house to anyone who wants a great, comfortable house in a perfect location.

Hermosa Beach is the place!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house is great. We walked everywhere. The view was amazing and the volleyball courts were right in front of house. The cottage was very well stocked and provided a beach house feel. The internet worked very well and everyone had a bed. The kitchen had everything we needed for all our meals. I would definitely recommend for people who want to relax and not have walk anywhere. Hermosa is a great beach town for a nice break.

We owned a home on the beach for a weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a terrific time staying here for a girls' weekend. We drank wine, sat on the front patio looking out at the ocean most of the day, played a little volleyball on the beach, took in a bit of the sun on the beach as well. For a "cottage" I was expecting it to be small, but the living room was open, airy and light. The bedrooms with the King bed and Queen bed were both a nice size. The rooms with the Full beds were more of the small, beach cottage size you'd expect. But all beds/rooms were comfortable and large enough. I'd say the only negatives - and for me these were so minor it doesn't change my 5-Star review: it gets a bit hot upstairs, The Strand can get loud (you'd be surprised what people talk about in public - LOL) but this is mostly during the day, and upstairs the ceilings slant in the corners so if you're tall beware of hitting your head. Lastly, the terms and conditions are restrictive - limited number of guests, no additional guests to visit, etc. So, definitely do not plan to host a party here. The deposit was also a bit onerous which made me nervous having never rented this property or worked with the owner before, but as soon as we vacated the full deposit was refunded immediately. As long as you take care of the home and follow the rules I can't imagine you'll have an issue getting your deposit back. We loved our weekend of beach house "ownership." Thank you!

Great location and comfy living

  • 5 of 5

The location of the Cottage was phenomenal - whether you wanted to hit the beach or walk down the Strand to restaurants or bars - everything was right there. We flew in for a wedding that had multiple venue locations and this location was central that we felt like we were less than a $20 Uber to everywhere we needed to go.

The house comfortably slept our 10 guests and we all felt like we had the right amount of privacy with the room set-up. Coming back to LA we would certainly choose the Cottage on The Strand.

Beautiful sunsets and ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

What a great retreat on the beach! Eat outside or in and view the ocean front setting. Walk for miles on the beach or the walking / biking path. Restaurants within walking distance. We celebrated a moms getaway, soccer moms with players now still playing in college. No car needed!! We will definitely go back. Thank you for sharing your beach home.
