Newly renovated 1932 Spanish guest house with just the right mix of vintage charm and modern amenities. Coved ceilings for those that love them.

Original vintage tile in place in the bathroom for those that appreciate all things vintage. Comfy bedroom with 1 queen sized bed and a TV. Second bedroom has cool bunk beds with a twin bed in the upper bunk and a full size bed for 2 on the the bottom bunk. This room comes with an antique writing desk for you to work on your laptop or use as an office and take breaks on the bed. ;-)

Outside lounge area with hotel quality furniture for that afternoon read or outdoor lunch. There is even a tea cart that facilitates bringing things from the kitchen. We love the cart ourselves ;-).

Cellar for extra storage. It's a great space to store your luggage so you can enjoy the home without them in the way. Restored original hardwood floors.

Street parking.(Optional) 1 car parking garage available for an extra fee depending on the length of your stay. No pets. Non-smoking property. Property is conveniently located near: Art Galleries, Downtown, Ports O'Call, Restaurants, Coffee Shops, Pubs, Cruise Ships, Harbor, Point Fermin, Terranea Resort, Marymount College, Farmers Market on Friday mornings. Near the USS Iowa, Cabrillo Beach, and Crafted Marketplace! The busy Port of Los Angeles provides a dynamic constantly changing scene as ships from all over the world arrive and depart. Ride over the bridge to Long Beach to the Queen Mary.

Perfect location to stay at if you come in a couple days early for your cruise or to stay in town after your cruise.

We don't mind picking you up from the airport: Long Beach airport is the closest or LAX. Since we are only 5 minutes away from the cruise ships we can pick you up or drop you off all for an extra nominal fee. Let us know what your needs are ahead of time and we will do our best to accommodate them.

You may on occasion spot our pet Bunnies hopping around outside. We rescued and adopted a few. On occasion we have foster bunnies too.

Picture yourself here... just bring your suitcase and you are home!

About Jane

We are both educators. Gene is in admin. at a local elementary school. Jane teaches art at the elementary and university level. We have 2 grown children. We just remodeled our guest house and have had a lot of fun doing it. This is our first property together. We love to travel and enjoy sharing travel adventure stories with fellow travelers. We have a bunny that you'll fall in love with too.

Jane purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Jane chose San Pedro

San Pedro is a port district of the city of Los Angeles. It is a harbor town rich in history. From once being the fishing port in the nation to now having the USS Iowa, Point Fermin, near Terranea Resort, Long Beach. Generations of families still live in the community. It is quite a unique place a small town within large Los Angeles, kind of like the last little secret harbor town. We love that.

What makes this bungalow unique

You'll find our home has been restored as much as possible to be charming and honor the vintage Spanish style bungalow that it is. It is cozy in the sense of feeling like home immediately. You'll love the completely new kitchen, original vintage tile in the bathroom, new TV, cellar, and bedrooms. Original hardwood floors, coved ceilings and hallway niche. Everything you need is here, books, dishes, board games, linens...just bring your clothes. You might spot our pet bunnies grazing in the yard. They like to come outside occasionally to play. We live in the front house, so we are within reach. We are also happy to serve as your concierge. :-)

Charming, Clean, Absolutely Great!

  • 5 of 5

This house is immaculately clean. Has everything you need for relaxing, resting, anything you need for your vacation. The breeze that comes through the house adds a nice touch to the whole vacation feel. Even though it is located in a pretty dense residential area, it feels totally private.

If you are looking for a place to stay near L.A., it is definitely the house you want!

We love it!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and daughter and I stayed here for the second year in a row. This is a wonderful little house and so much better than staying in a hotel. You can get to other parts of L.A. relatively quickly if you travel at the right times. For example, we drove to the L.A. Museum of Natural History near downtown L.A. and got there in 25 minutes. Would recommend getting a rental car that is as small as you can be comfortable with as it will help in finding street parking near the house.

Great property very clean and private. Gene and Jane were kind and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

It felt like we were staying in a close family friends property. We had two older kids and a toddler along with two adults and were comfortable. They have laundry services, beach towels, even a stroller in the basement! Thanks for the wonderful treatment and visiting with the bunnies was a plus!!

Very relaxing trip

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Castillo was perfect for our family of five. Gene and Jane really have an eye for detail. Parking wasn't fantastic but our hosts saved a spot for us a couple of nights. Our kids had fun at the beach and the beds are so comfortable after a day of swimming and sun. Next time we visit San Pedro we'll definitely be checking Casa de Castillo's availability.
