Are you looking for a fantastic holiday to spend at the beach? Our house is a perfect landing spot located in Hermosa Beach, California. Just steps from the main drag "Pier Avenue" , two blocks to the main beach area, and an easy walk to major super markets- this place is heaven! Hermosa Beach is known for its beaches, surfing, volleyball, bike rides and lively night scene. It is an active town with tons of families, singles, and retirees all enjoying life at the beach.
The house is a new contemporary home. It is a 4 level house with a roof top deck. Ocean views are fantastic from the third level and roof top. The house is a modern contemporary style home with African mahogany on the outside and mahogany accenting the inside stairs, floors, and ceilings. A three story wall of terrazzo that brings the organic aspects of the beach inside. Glass railings and doors along with a glass bathroom add to the character of the home. The 3rd level kitchen and hang out area has a unique martini apple green eating center island bar/table that seats 5 comfortably- there is no formal dining area. A rooftop deck with fireplace make an evening at the beach fun and relaxing as you watch the sunsets.
We spent a great deal of thought and time trying to build this house an environmentally friendly house and energy efficient. All of the appliances are energy efficient and stainless steel, endless water heater, and Kohler bath fixtures are water efficient. The decor is mid century modern and used from the 50's, 60's, and early 70's and is a work in progress. Panton, Herman Miller, George Nelson, B&B; Italia are some of the MCM names that decorate/furnish this fun beach house. The furnishings are high end and we ask that they are treated with respect. We will remove certain pieces if children are part of the guest group.
The home is set up with two bedrooms, both with queen beds on the 2nd level. There is an office that can be used for an infant if with crib. In the lower hang out room there is a twin day bed. The B&B; sofa on the 3rd level does fold down to a queen size bed as well. There are 3.5 bathrooms including a jet jacuzzi tub and steam shower. We feel the house is best suited for no more than 4 people. We will only rent to guets if beds equal guests.
House also has 3 HD TVs and Blu Ray, steam shower, jacuzzi jet tub, cable, outdoor fireplace, internet, weekly cleaning. The location is a "10". The beach is a "10". The house sits very close to the main downtown area BUT just outside of the noise and party atmosphere so one can sleep and not be awoken to the late night partiers. Many people think they want the strand on the beach but in Hermosa the Strand = Party and may not be suitable for a relaxing holiday. Also, we do not have any construction n our block which is HUGE as the beach is the hottest real estate market to date and last summer we had 5 new home construction on our block, this year we are construction free :)!
We will make room for two cars to park which is really the bonus of the location since parking at the beach is a real commodity! Again, all restaurants, bars, coffee, ice cream parlors, nail salons, bike rentals, surf board rentals, supermarkets, beach are ALL within short distances from 1/2 a block to 4 blocks. The house is near enough to the main Pier strip of bars and restaurants but far enough to avoid the noise. Manhattan Beach is approximately 2 miles north to Manhattan Beach Pier and Redondo Beach Pier is approximately 2 miles south. the 405 Freeway is about a 20-30 minute surface street commute. Major big retail shopping can be found in Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, and El Segundo.
Taxi ride to/from LAX are approximately $40 and 25 minutes. There is public transportation down the street and bus schedules can be obtained at the library two blocks from the house.
This is a very special place so please make sure you tell us about yourself and who would be staying in our home as we want to make sure we all have a lovely experience. Thank you for looking and for your inquiry and enjoy Hermosa Beach!
We do limit the size of the party to 4 as we feel we know what the house can handle in regards to comfortably fitting a group. Please review the bedroom descriptions to make sure this may be suitable for your stay and message us with any questions. We also do require advanced bookings and bookings within 2 weeks of a stay have a less likely chance to be accommodated but we will try. Thank you for your interest and we hope you enjoy your stay in Hermosa Beach and Los Angeles!TripAdvisor property ID 3543456...Read more

The house, alone, is worth the five stars, but there aren't enough stars to describe the owners! They were so easy to work with and Neva was such a great host. This was such a great experience for my family. My husband secretly harbored concerns about what to expect. He did not believe the reality would be meet, much less exceed, the pictures on the sight...but like most things, he was wrong! The house was wonderful...the view was wonderful...the location was wonderful (I think I only used the a handful of times in our month long stay). The only negative was that we did, eventually, have to leave. We loved the house, we loved the owners, and we loved Hermosa!!

We stayed here in October with our 2 nieces (12 years old) and had a fantastic time. The area is just perfect. 5 minute walking to beach, shops and restaurants. The house is very nice and modern decorated. Everything was very clean. We totally enjoyed our stay.
“Outstanding rental that exceeded our expectations”

Great place that was walking distance to the beach and all of the stores. Richard and Neva were great hosts and went out of their way to make sure everything was taken care of. House is very nice with up to date amenities and decor but also child friendly.

This place is perfect for a romantic getaway or small families with older children. You have many options with downtown area and beach. No car needed. Home is gorgeous and clean. Owner communicated every detail needed.
We will be back!

From the moment I set foot in Hermosa Beach and my rental property, I knew it was a success! I could walk everywhere...including to the beach...I could eat at more restaurants than I had time to do...and the fun shopping was an inspiration! My rental property was amazing...with views beyond compare and all the comforts of home...I was supplied with everything. This was one of the most successful vacations I have had...thank you!
