What makes this house unique

Testimonial::::I also thought if you would like to use any of our e-mails or thank you's for the vacation rental site you are certainly welcome to do so. Some of the people on the different sites added reviews from their guest book. I know I read an awful lot of the reviews when I was looking for a house it seemed different people commented on different things, all very helpful.. know that your house worked out great for Al's elderly parents and their special needs, that was a real plus. The crib and porta crib on different floors were perfect for my precious 2 week old grandson. Your extra tables and chairs in the garage certainly made serving and extra seating easy. Thanks again so much.

great stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the Hester's this past week. Well equipped and spacious. We had a large dinner party and everything was there that we needed. The house has no air conditioning so it was warm when we arrived but opening the windows and turning on all the fans soon cooled the house nicely. Christine was responsive to all our questions. Even helped arrange a last minute babysitter!

Beautiful house, lovely suburb, warm welcome!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this beautiful house for a week. We were a party of seven: four adults and three teenagers. We were met by Christine, Gene and Sheri's person on the spot, who greeted us so warmly and showed us how everything worked. Our trip to California was for our daughter's 40th birthday and when she found that out, Christine even came up with a birthday cake which really was beyond the call of duty! It was great to know we had someone there we could speak to if anything went wrong (it didn't!). The house was clean and well-stocked. Plenty of restaurants and shops close by. The garden was nice and the BBQ worked so well that we ate dinner twice around the table in the garden. Washing and drying facilities were high-capacity and very useful. Torrance was unexpectedly lovely and only a short distance from Redondo Beach which was also a pleasant surprise. The Friday night classic car cruise at Ruby's Diner was excellent.

We can thoroughly recommend this property and the very nice people who own and run it. We could not have found a better place to stay. Thanks so much.

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

This house was great! Plenty of room for our entire party with a sweet back yard to relax in. We enjoyed playing darts, scrabble, cards at the large dining room table, and hot tub time. It was great having a cooler and beach chairs to use for our trips to the beach. The location was perfect for all of the events we attended for a family wedding. Only drawback was the shower height. Kind of difficult for tall people.

This home exceeded our expectations!!!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this home to family and friends!

This was our first experience renting a home for vacation and wasn't sure what to expect. The stay helped us to have one of the best family vacations ever! Gene and Sheri answered our questions quickly and thoroughly throughout the whole process. Christine, who helps with the onsite needs of the home, was the best! She was very personable, gave a detailed walk-through, and showed concern that all our needs regarding the house were met.

The home is beautiful and family friendly. My grandchildren loved the den area with all the fun games that were available to them. My favorite room was the kitchen, beautiful new appliances and space for several people to cook at the same time. I also loved that there was a washer and dryer that was new, modern and easy to use.

Here are comments from other family members who stayed at the home:

...home was way better than the pictures

...very clean

...great host

...great location

...great space

...lots of amenities

...extremely accommodating

...loved that it was close to the beach

Thank you Gene and Sheri for sharing your home with us!

Wonderful home and owners

  • 5 of 5

The home and yard is better than the pictures show. The rooms are larger than the pictures show, especially the game/den room, it is awesome.

The owners answered every question, and if needed they came to house to help with anything needed.

I highly recommend this home to anyone wanting space, privacy, and excellent landlords.

We stayed for a week in this wonderful home. Plenty of space for our kids and a great, modern kitchen. Only 10 minutes from the beach and close to all that we wanted to do. Highly recommended.
