Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

I have 3x delightfully restored beach cottages in South Redondo a block from the beach-located on the same grounds as the other beach cottages (BBC2 & BBC3).

The Burnham Beach Cottage(s) was built at the turn of the century originally as a B&B.

We are a unique property so please feel free to email me with any questions or requests.

Simply put……a B&B experience with the privacy & independence of a vacation rental…...

This cottage comprises of 1 bedroom, living room with comfy queen-size sofa/futon bed, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with clawfoot tub/shower and grounds where you can BBQ, relax around the fit-pits or just taking in the evening sunsets on your porch. You will be provided with fresh flowers, ironed bed linens, bath & beach towels, wi-fi, TV,DVD, iron & ironing-board, bubble-bath & bath salts so as to enjoy the claw-foot tub to the fullest.

Please note the cottage is ideal for 2 but can accommodate 4.

Enjoy the ocean & views within minutes from the cottage. Walk,stroll,jog or ride the coastline path that starts here in Redondo and goes all the way to Malibu; ...easily engage in surfing, swimming, volleyball, walking, running, skating, biking, hiking....there's heaps to do in these beach cities & the list continues....art/food/music festivals, outdoor movies in the parks/on the beach, international volleyball tournaments to watch, or if you would rather just relax in our gardens or on the beach and do nothing... you can do that too...

Varied selection of restaurants/cafes are on hand.

We are a quintessential SoCal beach town,close to LA without being in the hectic rush of LA. All is easily accessible by freeways, public transportation, sightseeing tours pick-up at local hotel.

Enjoy LA in a beach oasis- it makes coming to LA quite a different experience...

Terrific spacious outdoor peaceful yard area(s) great for socializing, reading, chatting to new friends or just enjoying the sunsets.

Also*** For that Special Occasion that you want to do something super special let us know we will help with suggestions and/or help organize for you....

About owner/property manager

I am a fun easy going person. I have traveled & lived in other countries fairly extensively. Love People and enjoy all that life has to offer! I have had 20+ years in the the hospitality business, many of those years specializing in the B&B field-so I know how to make your stay special.

owner/property manager purchased this cottage in 2005

Why owner/property manager chose South Redondo

I particularly love restoring older properties so when I came across the Burnham House & Cottages with all it's historic history it was impelling to want to restore and bring back to life all the workmanship so often found in these older homes.... It certainly is most rewarding now to sit back and have others enjoy what has been re-created. Being so close to the beach is also most delightful and certainly well enjoyed. With my years of running Bed & Breakfast Inns & my enjoyment to meet people from all walks of live it provided to be a perfect marriage. I love that I have a historic landmark that is only 2 blocks to the beach and that I have provided such an enjoyable & peaceful environment for anyone that wants to indulge. There are great spacious grounds with little cottages sprinkled amongst the grounds where you can snuggle up on a big garden wicker chair and read a book, a snooze in the hammock or an evening around the fire-pit snipping fine wine and eating a pork chop.... I love taking a long walk in the morning along the beach and watching the surfers & dolphins mingle & the whales migrating in March/April. ***The sunsets are amazing and truly lovely to enjoy...very relaxing***.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Arrive as strangers and leave like friends" This saying is so true in describing our visit with Mike and Wendy. Check the other reviews and my wife and I endorse all of the positive comments. Burnham Beach Cottage was a real treat for us and we especially enjoyed the spaciousness and the clawfoot tub. It was wonderful to be only a block away from Redondo Beach and its many attractions and morning walks. If you're lucky Mike will make you one of his famous lattes. Mike and Wendy are accomplished and experienced hosts that will provide you with a wealth of insights and information for exploring the local area and Southern California. Hopefully we can return someday.

Wonderful place with wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time at the Burnham and next time we are back in the area we will stay here again. Wendy is a wonderful host and the beach is so close at hand.

Lovely Place

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time I have had the pleasure of staying here. It is very private, the kitchen is well equipped, and the bed is very comfortable. The outdoor seating area is a major plus. It is a pleasant walk to the beach, also a major plus.

Wonderful Bungalow 2 Blocks from Redondo Beach

  • 5 of 5

We spent our last 3 nights of our vacation at this property. Wendy made us feel right at home the minute we arrived. She gave us a tour of the property as well as things that we might want to do. When we couldn't get some news channels we watch, she went and got her son to help us. There are a few other bungalows on the property and Saturday night was a Halloween party hosted by Wendy's son. Everyone there was invited which made us feel right at home. Right at 11:00 p.m., the party shut down as expected. I would highly recommend this property for your travels. Wendy has very nice touches like little flowers everywhere, bath towels like you have at home, books and movies for you to enjoy.. We will definitely be going back when our travels call us to Redondo Beach!

Perfect Little Getaway Spot Even if you are working

  • 5 of 5

I was visiting on a work trip and this was the perfect cottage getaway. I felt relaxed from the moment I walked in the door. Everything is set up perfectly and the décor is darling. I didn't get a chance to enjoy the setting as much as I would have liked, however, just being there added a sense of calmness to my crazy work schedule. I would go back and will share with others. I loved it!

A perfect peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Burnham Beach cottage after 4 weeks touring the USA National Parks - we wanted somewhere quiet and casual to chill for a few days. This was perfect. It's hard to believe how close to LAX you are, and also to shops and of course the beach. It wasn't really swimming weather during our stay but the LA 'June gloom' cleared to blue skies most days. Wendy (whom we met briefly) and then Lynn who filled in for her, were personable and knowledgeable hosts and there were many homely touches throughout the property. It's not accommodation for everyone: no A/C, dishwasher, microwave etc. But it can't be beaten for a relaxing and comfortable stay.
