About Sherry

After spending the last 16 years in Colorado raising our two girls, we have come 'back to the beach' to enjoy the Southern California lifestyle and now we are sharing our newly remodeled beach cottage for others to enjoy. We hope you have as many great memories in our oceanfront paradise as we have!

It doesn't get better than this!

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled a lot out of the country for various beach vacations and one thing we kept asking ourselves after staying a week at this property in both units was, why? This place has it all, and we mean ALL! I'm just going to start a list, but this in no way is complete: waking up to the ocean view from the beach house, the gorgeous sunsets, the surf perfect for boogie boarding and surfing, the velvety sand, the beach volleyball, the bike path, the dolphins, the sea lions, the heat lamp next to the cozy outdoor furniture, the immaculately clean and beautifully decorated beach house that has you wanting for nothing because everything from a blender to a crock pot to a skim board are among what you'd have at home and more. The town of Playa del Rey is absolutely charming and we spent as much time on the bikes cruising the shoreline or the marina, going to Senor G's for deliciously freshly made juices or Tanner's coffee where we drank Snow Monkey Plum tea...such unique drinks. And we loved the authentic Italian food at Cantalini's. Of course, a review wouldn't be complete without mention of the beds, which were so very comfortable! We stayed at the beach house for a family reunion as well as a retirement celebration for grandpa and it is unanimous by all from the littlest guy to grandpa that this will be one of our fondest memories. This is a fabulous property and Sherry and Stephen take pride in every detail, plus they are wonderful to know. It was so hard to leave, but we'll absolutely be back!!

SoCal perfect beach experience

  • 5 of 5

Ours hosts Steve and Sherry provided us with best possible location and accommodation. The home was spotless, whimsically decorated with an instantly homey feel.

The sunsets were breath taking from the balcony over looking the Pacific. Wonderful eateries within minutes walk. Gourmet Italian, family Italian, and California cuisine at Provisions all worth while.

Very interesting eating and shopping at Abbot Kinney just north of Venice Beach. The pier at Venice was a cool place to watch some surfing, 12 minute drive from beach house, with Malibu just up the coast from there.

If you are looking for the beach experience we highly recommend this home. If you are a light sleeper you may want pack ear plugs as being only 12 minutes from the airport there is some noise but not enough to lose a star over. Great house, great hosts and great home base for all your sight seeing plans

Thanks again Steve and Sherry our family of 5 were more than happy with our stay. Travelling with three teenagers was made much easier than it sounds with a home base as comfortable as this Playa del Rey beach house.

Cheers, Gerry and Lorna B.

The unit was clean, nicely decorated, well maintained and exceptionally well equipped. The ocean views from the spacious balcony were awesome and the sunsets amazing. The hosts were both welcoming and caring.

This beach house was amazing! We especially loved the view and how spacious it was.

  • 5 of 5

I rented out this beach house for my parents for my Dad's 60th birthday. They enjoyed watching the sunset from the patio each night and waking up to the sound of the waves. It was everything they hoped it would be and more. Sherry was a great host and even allowed us to use her beach chairs and tables. We highly recommend this beach house and look forward to renting it again in the future!

Fabulous Beach Front

  • 5 of 5

The owner met us at the door when we arrived and gave us a tour of the whole place. There was a whole closet full of 'toys'. Beach chairs, coolers, body boards and etc.. Very well stocked. Sherry also gave us the scoop on where to go for eating, groceries etc... Great location within walking distance of tons of great restaurants. The highlight of the place was the deck. We spent the majority of our time there. The ocean view and sound was incredible. Why would anyone rent a house there and not be ON THE BEACH? Best dinner was at Cantalini's Salerno Beach Restaurant. Great Italian food. We also met 'Mo' at Mo's Place. Fabulous neighborhood bar with great pub fare. Of course we went to Venice beach to see the sights but the beach by the house was our favorite hangout. Went for a run or walk on the boardwalk every day. The house was clean and well stocked. The master bedroom was awesome. I would definitely stay there again.
