Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Rolling Hills - Villa RETREAT in Palos Verdes


This charming home sits in a tranquil setting, a quiet cul-de-sac, with expansive city views and nature canyon views, in Los Angeles. It resides in an upscale, exclusive neighborhood on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

Walks and hiking trails amongst trees, in the hills of this large, preserved Nature Park, with incredible ocean views of the Pacific, and vast city views of Los Angeles below.

Very private behind security gates in luxurious Palos Verdes.

This is a 3 bedroom house - the Master bedroom has a king size bed, and its own en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and its own adjacent bathroom. The 3rd bedroom has another Queen sized bed.

There is also a half bath/powder room near the entry way/front door.

Beautiful views from the dining room, living room, master bedroom, and also, of course, from the terrace and covered patio by the pool and spa.

Direct access to hiking trails.

About 30 mns from Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Disneyland/Knotts Berry Farm; 45 mns from Hollywood and Universal Studios; 20 mns from the beach at Malaga Cove or Redondo Beach. 20 mns by freeway to LAX airport. 20 mns from Long Beach (Aquarium, Queen Mary). 15 mns from Trump Golf Course and Terranea Resort. 15 mns from Torrance/Zamperini airport.

It doesn't really matter what your looking for out of a trip, this is your spot. We haven't been able to stop talking about this rental since we returned from our trip. It easily had any and everything we could have wanted and more. From the most pleasant of views, to the relaxation of the outdoor patio with both pool and Jacuzzi, to the timely location and tranquil neighborhoods, there isn't a single thing more we could have asked for. We rented this house for the second half of a 2 week trip.....the first half of which had turned into somewhat of a disaster, but this place turned it all right around for us. We loved this place so much we chose to spend a couple of days simply at the house instead of going to some planned attractions, (some of which were already even paid for!) This was our first time using a vacation rental and we were quite skeptical, but we couldn't have been more pleased. Jim was great about helping us with any and all of our needs, but never being obtrusive at all, in fact it even turned out to be easier than renting a hotel room. I cant stress enough that everything we could have needed was there, right down to things like laundry soap. This place was a breath of fresh air for us that we couldn't possibly have enjoyed more. It's up in the top of rolling hills with a city view in a very well kept neighborhood, that gives you an escape of the busyness of the city that is great to wind down at the end of a long day on vacation and be able to truly relax and rest up for the next day. However gives you reasonably quick access to get almost anywhere. The pictures don't begin to do this place justice, its one of those things that they couldn't possibly, and the only way to understand is to see it yourself. We feel like we've found our new home for our trips to LA, and look forward as much to staying here again, as we do anything else about the city. If your looking for a recommendation and would like to speak with us directly, Mr. Winston has our contact information, and we have informed him we would be happy to speak with people interested in this place. I hope this review helps anyone interested....if not, well I suppose we'll just get to keep it to ourselves then which is fine by us....hahaha....

Beautiful neighborhood and view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this property. The location is superb! The neighborhood is beautiful and tranquil, full of mature trees, well manicured homes, and great hiking trails. The property has a great view from the backyard, and is open and spacious inside. The owner is accommodating and full of information on what to see, where to go and where to dine. We truly enjoyed our stay at this property.

Beautiful View!

  • 4 of 5

We had a family vacation here last week. The accommodations were satisfactory, kitchen was filled with everything you would need, many linens and very spacious. The house has 2 fireplaces where we roasted marshmellows and made s'mores! The views were crazy beautiful. We walked most of the mountain trails and had special family time. Mr Winston was available if anything was needed. We did have to go purchase propane as both cans were empty, some little critters were noticed outside-probably normal near a mountain house. We had a wonderful time!

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with my husband, son and daughter-in-law. We all loved the property. The home is spacious, light-filled, comfortable and furnished in a kind of casual elegant manner. We grilled, sat by the pool, ate by firelight and walked through the glorious area. The setting is truly spectacular, although some may like the lights from LA sparkling in the distance at night, it is truly the grounds and area which is stunning. There is a feeling of being far from the city and yet, all the highlights of the LA area is a short drive. We went out to eat, shopping and to the beach. And we could have easily golfed, played tennis, gone horseback riding, but really all anyone wanted to do - was chill at the house. And so we did. Can't wait to go back. The owner is more than willing to help with any and all questions - he is a joy.

Great trip to LA

  • 5 of 5

Great 3 BR 2.5 bath home

So much better than a hotel for our family

Incredible views from the back yard and a beautiful neighborhood

We had a fabulous trip

LA is spread out so you need a car-- we went to Universal studios, whale watching out of Long Beach, Getty Museum, hiking both in rolling hills and Laguna
