The construction of this warm modern house was just completed in 2008. This house was designed and built by the owner (who is a general contractor) for his own personal use and therefore no details were spared. On the first floor is a home theater, home gym and half bathroom. The home theater has seating for 8-10, an HD Blu-ray disc player (also plays DVDs), HD projector, and huge 20 foot screen. This is the largest screen we have ever seen in a home theater and the quality of the image is just like being at the theater! There are also three twin-sized air beds in the theater.
New for 2015:
• 4 bicycles (strand-cruisers)
• 4 boogie-boards
• beach chairs and umbrellas
• lots of beach games and toys
The main floor has a full gourmet chef's kitchen with all stainless steel appliances, huge island, bar, and all granite countertops, wine/drink refrigerator (in addition to a regular full sized refrigerator). There is also a large pool table, and dining table (with optional ping pong table top), with 8 chairs, and a large covered balcony and a half bathroom, three fireplaces (one of them double-sided).
The living room area has a large L-shaped couch, 60-inch plasma flat screen HD television (and HD DVR and satellite channels), and free high-speed wi-fi internet access. There is also an outside covered large patio area with a barbecue, a huge Fleetwood sliding glass wall, furniture and a fireplace. There is a dog door and side yard area (we will consider a small dog with an additional deposit).
The top floor has four bedrooms, a large laundry room with new washer and dryer, an office area, three balconies, and three full bathrooms. The master bedroom is very large with a king-sized bed, a 42' LCD HD television (and HD DVR and satellite channels), double-sided gas fireplace, covered balcony, and an en suite luxury bathroom. There is a separate whirlpool bathtub and large walk-in shower with a huge skylight on the entire ceiling. The next bedroom has a queen-sized bed and its own full en suite bathroom. The third bedroom has two twin-sized beds and a full-sized sofa/bed and a full bathroom.
The fourth bedroom has a queen-sized bed, no closet, and is in the front of the house with two balconies each with a large sliding glass door and ocean views. There is a desk and office chair in a separate area next to this bedroom. The house sleeps up to 12 adults and 4 small children, including using air-beds.
There is a huge rooftop deck with 360 degree panorama and ocean views, party lights and furniture....Read more

We did a family reunion at this house and loved it! It was bigger than expected and the owner was incredibly accommodating. Our family loved the huge kitchen and amazing back patio with bamboo. The little kids loved the movie room and we used the roof deck for every sunset! It was an easy walk to the beach and the pier. It was also super easy to get to and from the airport. Definitely will recommend to all our friends and family!!

We stayed in this house for a girls trip last weekend and had a fabulous time. There were 11 of us that stayed at the house and there was ample room for us to stay. The kitchen is gorgeous!!! The pool/Ping-Pong table and the rooftop are awesome as well. The master bedroom is spacious with a huge closet and renovated bathroom. And an added bonus for the theater room and gym (even though we didn't use it). As noted in the description, other houses very close by, but everyone is friendly and welcoming to the neighborhood. We spent a lot of our time down on Hermosa pier and the house was in walking distance, but cabs are also easy to snatch up. I'd recommend staying here.

We rented the house for our daughter's graduation from Cal State, with 16 of us attending from out of state. It was perfect - plenty of room, great kitchen and eating area, beautiful rooftop deck. The beach was a short walk or ride on the beach cruisers provided. We had a great time and would certainly rent this property again!
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?

Came up with friends and family for a nice relaxing getaway. The house was amazing. The roof top deck is even bigger in person. The sliding doors in the living room open up all the way to give a great open feeling. We made good use of the movie theater downstairs by connecting our laptop. Great times!

Beautiful house with ample room for everyone. The kitchen was spacious and very modern. We took advantage of the pool table/ping pong table and had a blast. My favorite part was the massive theater in which we had 7 people down there watching movies. The patio feels like a remote island. Great house and worth the price.

Incredible house in a fantastic Hermosa location. Our group of 10 had a great time at the impeccably finished house and especially enjoyed the rooftop deck. The neighborhood location was nice with easy walks to the beach, Pier, and restaurants. Will definitely try to make another trip.

This home was more than what we expected. My girlfriends and I were celebrating a bachelorette and this place surpassed all of our expectations. It was spacious, beautiful, and slept 10 comfortably. One night we decided to use the theater room and it was like having our very own movie theater at the comfort of our vacation home. Much better than staying at any hotel and this place was just a short walk to the beach and a short ride to la!

The house was truly a dream vacation home. The living room was by far my favorite room in the house. The sliding doors that allows the outside in was very refreshing. The movie theater and gym also was a added plus! I would definitely rent again. Thank you for renting out such a fabulous house.

Rented the home for the weekend with 9 of my girlfriends and had an amazing time. Keys were easy to get and the house had all the essentials. The bedrooms were simple and clean with plenty of towels and bathrooms to share. Great kitchen for shared meals and quality time with the girls. The rooftop is amazing with a view of the ocean from afar. The home had beach boogie boards, beach cruisers, a pool table and table tennis that we wish we had more time to use. Great living room space and the outdoor patio was perfect for a dinner outside. The theater room down stairs was great for a late night movie and it took less than a 10 minute walk to get to the beach. A perfect place for a weekend getaway! None of us wanted to leave!

The home was great. My family of 13 (ages range from2-67) all had a great time. The beds and pillows were all comfortable. The house stays cool at nite with the windows open. The little ones enjoyed all the toys in the house while the older boys enjoyed the pinging table. It is close to beach 1 1/2 min driving. The home was spacious for all of us. Theme parks are 30-40 mins away. Thank you Carl for sharing your beautiful home.

This house is incredible and we all didn't want to leave! It was everything that was promised and more. My extended family and I spent a nice weekend at the beach house. For a group of 13 it felt very comfortable and spacious and probably could have slept a handful more. The entire house was done with such eye for detail.
Everything from the fireplace in front of the soaking tub, to the rain head shower with the skylight, to the outdoor fireplace with the sliding wall to bring the outdoors in. It was 100% luxurious and relaxing. And there was indeed a huge theater room. The video and audio was awesome! There was even a nice selection of blue rays and Dvds for all to enjoy.
Everything was clean and well taken care of. There was toys for the little ones, ping-pong and billiards for the adults. It even comes with all the things you can use for the beach like umbrellas and body boards. Everything that I could have wanted was provided. Plus, it was only a 5 minute stroll to the beautiful soft sandy beach!
This house was perfect and just what my family wanted for our vacation. Now we have great memories of our time together that could not have been possible anywhere else!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. House has incredible kitchen, innovative lighting, sliding glass wall into patio area. We used bikes for rides along the beach and appreciated the close proximity to running path and beach path. Would highly recommend. Note: Property has many steps making it inaccessible to people with mobility issues.

This is our fifth so-Cal house rental. For this one, we rented this Hermosa Beach house for our family as part of a Southern California destination wedding. The house is spacious and beautiful. The location is walking distance to the beach and is located in a nice quiet cul-de-sac. I used one of the bikes and road for miles along the strand. The other huge convienience is the proximity to lax airport -- it is a straight shot on PCH/Sepulveda -- less than 20 minutes. The kitchen and large family room with glass sliding wall out to the patio was the perfect hang out for our family. Kitchen is very nice. Bedrooms are spacious. Everything was clean. All-in-all, a good experience for us.

This is a great house and the location couldn't be better! It's a short walk to the beach and the Main Street. From the roof deck to the media room, the house is perfectly laid out. A weekend stay was too short - wish we had more time! Thanks

Thanks for a wonderful stay. This is the best house in Hermosa Beach - great open space, fantastic bbq and gas stove, huge movie theater for watching all the films we missed in the cinema, and an amazing roofdeck to take in the serenity. The house is so close to the airport it was so easy for my group to fly into lax from across the country to enjoy the weekend. Hopefully we'll be back again soon!

We stayed at this beautiful home for 10 days in late July. The home is
large and beautifully decorated. There was room for everyone to sleep and have a little space to themselves. The kids especially enjoyed the theater room and pool/ping pong table. The kitchen is huge and made a perfect gathering space. Very clean! Responsive owner too

We spent the week before Christmas at the Hermosa Beach house and loved it! The house perfectly accommodated 9 friends, and with the pool table, entertainment system (amazing home theater!), and ping pong, we kept busy the entire time (in spite of the rainy weather). The home is in a convenient area - close to the beach and great nightlife for a younger crowd. We loved the place; the pictures just don't do it justice! We would recommend this place to everyone looking for a great getaway!

My husband and I, along with my two step children, really enjoyed this gorgeous house. The location is great...just blocks from the beach, close to a CVS and positioned right at the start of the walking path that runs through Hermosa and Manhattan beach. It is roughly ten blocks from the Hermosa Pier. The rooftop has great views of the ocean, there is a lot of natural light and the floor plan of the house is fantastic. To be honest, we spent 80% of our time in the movie theatre room. We have friends that have expensive movie theatre rooms and the size of the screen in this home beats them all! The kitchen is huge, the numerous fire places make the place cozy and the ping pong and pool table near the entrance of the house make for perfect entertaining. This house is an experience worth having! Carl, owner and designer, is extremely easy to communicate with and a great person to rent from!

We have rented homes in California and Hawaii for our family vacation for the past 10 years, and this is the best property we've ever stayed in. We have 10 people in our group, so we need a lot of space and lots of things to do. This house provides the space, the activities, and the luxury that any family would want. The listing is very accurate; if anything, the house is even better than described. The kitchen and master bedroom are spectacular. The game room (pool and ping pong), gym and home theatre offer endless opportunities for things to do. Our grandkids were excited and active for all seven days...never a dull minute. The great room is spacious and equipped with a huge wraparound couch and 60 inch flat screen TV. Perfect for hanging out, watching sports, playing games, and chilling while meals are being prepared. The large outdoor patio next to the great room, which isn't even mentioned in the listing, is fantastic--great place to read, serve meals and relax. Because of the wall-to-wall windows, it has a nice indoor-outdoor feel. The beach is a short 5-10 minute walk, and it's a beautiful, sandy beach. Four new bikes are provided, and we made good use of them, with long rides along the strand, into Redondo Beach and also into Manhattan beach. We also were able to watch the July 4 fireworks from the rooftop deck. The owner was responsive and helpful in addressing a couple of minor problems we had. I'd recommend this property without hesitation to anyone looking for a luxurious, active family vacation. It was a super experience for our family. We will definitely be back.

We stayed at the Hermosa Beach Luxury House for three nights over NYE weekend and it was amazing! The house is just gorgeous and was beyond what we expected. My husband and I came down from San Francisco with three other couples, and all eight of us stayed comfortably at the house. The kitchen is well equipped with nice pots and pans for cooking, beautiful appliances, and fun amenities. The roof top deck is just gorgeous, with views of the ocean. Plus, the location is great, you can walk to the beach and the boardwalk. We even walked to the Hermosa Pier for dinner two nights (just a 10 minute walk!). But nothing beats the home theater downstairs...coolest thing ever! All in all we were Extremly pleased with our rental and would definitely come back! I highly recommended this rental. Plus the owner Carl is a pleasure to work with.

We were staying 2 weeks at this marvelous house in Hermosa beach. We have 2 children age 9 and 11. There is plenty of space for everyone, the house offers so many possibilities itself that you can hardly try everything within 2 weeks. We all enjoyed the home cinema, incredible picture, as well as the pool table, the roof top patio, the large bedrooms, and many other things, it is really luxury. For those who have to work a couple of hours also during vacation the house has an incredible fast wireless internet, and I had a desk with view over the ocean. The beach is just a 5 minutes walk away, la downtown is close as well as Disneyland. The beaches are nice, clean, and not crowded. The house sits within Hermosa, close to center, but it is amazing quite around it. Children can go out to the street, too, no worry about traffic. I can highly recommend that place. If we have the opportunity to visit la again, we will certainly visit this place again.
