Our house is known among our circle of friends as the place to entertain! We have a GREAT backyard, with a large bar-height teak dining set, built-in gas DCS grill, and a gas fire pit. We have mature, tropical landscaping, which offers a lot of privacy from the neighbors despite the proximity of buildings in this high-density, beach area.
And speaking of the beach, we definitely consider it an extension of our property, as we spend most weekends and a lot of weekday sunsets down there. It is just over 1 mile down a main street to hit the beautiful sands of Hermosa Beach. Hermosa is known for dozens of restaurants and bars, and a very wide clean beach. It is very walkable, and has a small-town feel.
Inside our house, all of the details, appliances, and finishes are very modern and recently updated. Downstairs, there is a 55" UHD Curved TV in the living room with a 3.1 sound system and PS4 system. The house has extremely fast 75/75MBS Verizon FiOS wireless internet throughout as well as DirecTV with premium movie channels. The kitchen has french style windows that open up to the backyard. There is a wood-burning fireplace just off of the living room; laundry and a half bath are also downstairs.
Upstairs, there are 3 bedrooms; a king size bed and 42" LCD TV in the master, a queen size bed and 42" TV in the guest room, and a futon and/or crib in the nursery depending on what your needs are. The full bathroom upstairs has travertine tile floor and walls, a large mirror, and an oversize bath/shower. There is also a corner office nook upstairs, and this looks out of a pair of french doors to our front sun deck.
The sun deck is perfect for enjoying a glass of wine while taking in the afternoon sun as it sets towards the west. There are two chaise lounges and a market umbrella up there, so make yourself at home!
We have a couple of beach cruisers and a mountain bike that will be available to our guests as well.
In regards to our neighborhood:
For those unfamiliar with the South Bay area of Los Angeles, we have the best of both worlds. We are only 6 miles from LAX airport, about 20 miles to downtown Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, or Hollywood, but we are also in a small town type of community which feels worlds away from the hustle of the LA metro area.
Our house is almost directly in the middle of the three beach city communities of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Redondo Beach, each with its unique identity. Manhattan has upscale dining and shopping, Hermosa has great bars, restaurants, and live music, and Redondo has a great pier, dive bars, and the King Harbor area for fishing, boating, etc.
In addition, Disneyland in Anaheim is about 30 minutes away, the San Gabriel mountains are an hour away, San Diego is just about 2 hours, and Vegas is about 5 hours (in moderate traffic). You really do have it all here. :)
Also, we are very lucky to always have moderate weather due to the proximity of the ocean. When it is 100F in LA in the summer, it is 80F here. When it is 35F in the valleys in the winter, it is 60F here. Not only does the ocean breeze keep the weather great, but the coastal air is as clean and fresh as you can get near a big city.
My wife and I have lived in this area for over 15 years, and would be glad to give you recommendations for just about anything.
My friends and I were very happy with our stay here! It was perfect for what we needed! The back yard was hard to leave, the front porch was perfect for my morning cup of coffee, and the beds made it easy for us to get a great night of sleep for our next day's adventures.
Additionally, Paul was extremely helpful prior to our arrival. His communication was very prompt and was helpful when we told him about a few last minute traveling issues we had. We were very greatful for his kindness!
My only overall concern was the cleanliness of the outdoor furniture. I understand that outdoor furniture can get dirty quickly! But I did spend about an hour when I got there wiping down all the dirt and dust, getting rid of the cob webs, and sweeping the decks. The inside cleanliness was wonderful though!
Overall great rental!! And I definitely recommend to anyone!
This is a lovely house not too far from the beach. The neighborhood is quiet and is a great place to stay just for a night (which I did with a group of friends) or I wouldn't have minded to stay longer. The home is definitely a place to entertain. The best feature is the backyard with a fire pit and bbq, which we spent most of our time in. The family lives in the home, so they do have their personal things there, but that did not affect our stay at all. We still had enough space for our belongings. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our own meals, and all the bedrooms were lovely to stay in. I would definitely recommend friends and family to stay here, and I would also stay here again.
