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....

UNFORTUNATELY WE DO NOT ALLOW GUESTS UNDER THE AGE OF 21 TO STAY WITHOUT A PARENT OR GUARDIAN!

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***.

Enjoy the coastline within a short walk to pier & beach path that sprawls from Palos Verdes to Santa Monica...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 the gardens or on the beach and do nothing... you can do that too... Varied selection of restaurants, eateries, cafes etc surround. Oh and not to forget, all the sites LA has to offer is easily accessible by car/public transportation private tours from local snazzy Hotels.

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 property, wonderful host, wonderful stay!

We stayed two days and enjoyed every minute. This property is close to the beach, close to shops, and very enjoyable. Wendy and her son Aaron are attentive yet not invasive. We hope to return again one day soon.

Perfect California Beach Destination

  • 5 of 5

Wendy’s cottages were perfect!! A friend and I stayed for about 9 days in one of her cottages while we training and played beach volleyball in nearby Hermosa Beach. We were lucky and got to use the bikes free of charge all week long which was a real life saver since we didn’t have a car. The location is great, quiet neighborhood but close to lots of places to eat and the redondo pier. The setup was exactly what we were looking for and Wendy and other guests were very accommodating. She even let us do a load of laundry free of charge. Highly recommend Wendy and her cottages!

Cottage is accesible to the beach, retaurants, etc. Location of cottage is very quiet, nice neighbor

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was very relaxing in a nice, quiet location. Cottage was a little on the small side but large enough for two people.

Walk to the beach and pier is a quick 5 minutes. Walk to Wholefoods and other shops about 10 minutes.

No complaints.
