Property description

'Casetta di Santi' (Italian for 'little home of the saints') is a 1926 beach bungalow in lovely South Redondo Beach in Southern California, five short blocks from the ocean. Walking directly west from the property, you arrive at the coastal area that encompasses the Redondo Pier (a tourist destination) and a small yacht harbor - King Harbor. This area is flanked by beautiful beaches to the north and south. From the house, you are walking distance to Starbucks, Whole Foods market, Rite Aid, McDonalds and numerous excellent restaurants, and cafes. The property is located in a quiet, friendly neighborhood close enough to drive within an hour to all the LA tourist destinations like Disneyland and Universal Studios, but far enough away to make you feel that you're in another world. Around the corner from the house is a small park with play equipment for children.

Although we have retained its wonderful cottage character and warmth, the Casetta has recently been remodeled to create an open kitchen with views to the beautiful backyard from the living room. New hardwood floors have been added throughout. French doors open out from the kitchen to the first patio which provides outdoor dining for eight people. The kitchen area includes a breakfast table for four, as well as a bar for two. The house is furnished thoughtfully with guests in mind. One of the cottage's two bathrooms can be accessed from a back door that opens onto the garden, making for an easy beach wash-off. The garden is one of the property's nicest features, arranged around three separate patios, each lined with plants and trees that bloom year-round

'Casetta di Santi' gets its name from the statues of Saints Francis, Anthony and Mary, all of which were gifts to the owner over a 20 year period, and are nestled in the leafy grottoes of the garden. These saints have faithfully showered continuous blessings on all those who dwell in the Casetta for a generation, a decade, or even a few days.

Comments left by a few of our guests:
'Our stay here at Casetta di Santi has been splendid. We were completely relaxed and comfortable with the perfectly furnished home. The backyard is sheer joy.' - guests from San Diego
'Casetta di Santi will stay in my memory forever. I went surfing every morning at daybreak (mid-winter), came home to this beautiful environment, lay in the backyard in the warming rays of the California sun. Thank you. The beds were very comfy - easy to get to sleep after a long day at Disneyland.' -guests from New Zealand
'Thanks for all your attention to detail. Felt as if we were really at our home away from home. Weather was so pleasant (warm for us since it's much colder in Connecticut.' - guests from Connecticut
'Twelve days that went too fast - wished we could stay another week. The house is beautiful, beds are wonderful. The beach in Redondo was the best. Friendly neighborhood. The children loved it here and want to come back.' - guests from Sweden

You can enjoy access to LA sights and activities without the stress of being in an urban setting. Here you're 'at the beach' and life is more laid back. People gather along the Esplanade just to watch the sun set over the Pacific.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: My husband and I have lived in the South bay since the late 1960's. We converted the cottage to a vacation rental in 2008 when we moved to another house on our beautiful and historic El Redondo Street. We wanted a place where our children and grandchildren could stay comfortably when they visit from out-of-state. When the family is not using the cottage it's available for our VRBO guests. Since 2008, we've rented the cottage to hundreds of guests, many of whom have become annual visitors. We take pride in preparing the property personally for each new guest. We want people to be comfortable in their home-away-from-home and know that we are available to respond to their needs during their visit. We have really enjoyed meeting and serving wonderful people from all over the world.

Why the Owner Chose Redondo Beach:
I grew up in Los Angeles and always wanted to live in Redondo Beach. I bought the property in the 1970's and have been in love with it ever since. It's cozy. It's perched on a high lot that offers a tree-top view from the living room. It has a tiered backyard that looks and feels like a magical garden where something is always blooming. Humming birds and butterflies are seen and heard in the garden every day. We can walk to the beach or drive to the LA sights. We especially enjoy the lifestyle of the beach cities and the luxury of always having access to sunset over the Pacific.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We're 20 minutes from LAX, walking distance to Redondo Beach ocean front and King Harbor. We have a garden with 3 patios that can comfortably support a large gathering to celebrate a big birthday, a graduation or a wedding.
