About the property

Sitting high on the hill over looking the Los Angeles Harbor, you'll love the character of vintage Spanish Colonial Revival building. Close to all Los Angeles has to offer. This completely furnished top floor flat can accommodate up to 4 people and has a fully functional kitchen and even a quiet sun room if you are just looking for a relaxing room to read o enjoy your morning coffee. This charmer has so much more to offer than a basic hotel room. This unit is up 3 flights of stairs and may not be suitable for young children...

Excellent accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much in this charming, spacious and cheerful top floor apartment. The location was very convenient and being on the top floor of the building provided plenty of sunlight through the multiple windows and a great view of the Pacific. The flat was very attractively decorated, extremely clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and supplies which we appreciated since we did eat in several meals. We enjoyed the deck off the living room with good seating and a wonderful view. Our only suggestion would be to add an umbrella for shade as the sun gets quite intense during the midday. All in all a wonderful place to stay in San Pedro and we would recommend it highly.

Very nice stay in a great area

  • 4 of 5

I couldn't give 4.5 stars or I would have...the only issue was two flights of outdoor stairs, that w luggage and stuff was a bit tiring and hot...but except for that all was pretty much PERFECT...the landlord lives downstairs, showed is thru the property when we got there, sent us to NIKOs for a nice late dinner after a day at Knotts Berry Farm....easy to get in and out of the area...was my wife, daughter (14yo) and I, has sofabed and two single beds and another bed in a side room...was perfect for us....fairly quiet, some noise from demolition next door, but not til later in the morning and barely noticeable.....very close to Catalina excursions, beaches all very close....if we hit the same area again we would stay again for sure...Thanks Ellen from the Decker family

Oh yeah an awesome deck/patio w a great view, plus perfect kitchen for our needs.....shower had great water pressure too

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for about 5 days. Property is exactly as shown in pictures, clean and you can tell a lot of love has gone into the place. It has a lovely terrace and we had enough room for 2 adults and 2 kids to stay without a problem. The owner was very helpful. Will stay again!

Great views, comfortable, much to do

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable studio has tremendous views of Los Angeles Harbor, easy access to Southern California amenities and attractions and proximity to walks, running and cycling along the waterfront and the gorgeous Palos Verdes Peninsula. Visiting Catalina Island is a treat. All in all, this is a great base for exploring Southern California.

Charm, serenity and a drop-dead view close to attractions of L.A.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this San Pedro property twice, once alone and once with my husband. It is lovely, and the view of the L.A. Harbor from the deck is simply beautiful, especially at night (see photos). It is very well-maintained and comfortable for sleeping, cooking, relaxing and general living. I could spend a week or a winter here easily (great weather in summer too, being so close to the ocean). One of my favorite rooms for reading is the sun room off the kitchen. The owner is a delightful person who lives on the first floor of the three-story building. She has lovingly furnished and equipped this apartment and cares deeply about the building and the community of San Pedro, the harbor of Los Angeles. She's a great source for information on the area. You are about a half hour to the attractions of L.A. and probably 45 minutes to Disneyland, etc. in Orange County, depending on the ever-present Southern California traffic, of course. Not far from LAX, either. San Pedro is a quiet residential (and historical) community that has some nice ethnic restaurants and a world class resort on the ocean just 10 minutes away -- Terranea on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, a great place for lunch or dinner. A plus to this property is free parking. One thing to be aware of -- it's up three flights, so if you have mobility problems, this could be an issue. On the other hand -- great daily exercise ... and it's a wonderful neighborhood to walk, also. I would highly recommend the property. And if you are starting or ending a cruise departing/arriving San Pedro or nearby Long Beach, this is the perfect place for a few days of relaxation. We actually watched our ship leave the harbor from the property's deck several hours after we arrived on a cruise from Sydney, Australia. That was a bonus we hadn't expected!

San Pedro overlooks the port of Los Angeles, with major cruise ships departing from this port. San Pedro has so much more to offer, only a short 20 mile drive to downtown Los Angeles with attractions in Hollywood, Chinatown, LA County Museums, and Griffith Park Observatory. In the other direction approx. 30 miles is Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm plus, several public golf courses nearby of this charming seaport town. From the outside deck of this 3rd floor hideaway, you can watch the cruise ships enter and leave the port and enjoy beautiful city lights views. Near to the Palos Verdes Peninsula and beach cities. THIS UNIT MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR VERY YOUNG CHILDREN.
