(We DO NOT advertise on Craig's list, so if you see an ad there, it's a scam)

Our recently remodeled 4 bedroom, 2 bath quaint beach duplex has all the amenities you need to settle right in and feel ‘at home’. With a total of 1500 sq ft, this upper floor unit can comfortably accommodate two families. We prefer children over the age of 5 for the consideration of our lower unit guests.

Take your pick of the huge 500 sq ft master bedroom with king size sleigh bed and private en suite bathroom with double vanity and laundry, the Tommy Bahama room with 4 poster queen bed, the Mermaid room with a queen bed or the surfer bunk bed room with 2 twins and 1 full bed for the kids. All bedrooms have new mattresses and quality linens plus ipod clock radios.

The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with dishes and all the cookware you need to prepare a family meal or a gourmet feast with bar seating, a fold out dining room table or dine al fresco at the picnic table outside with seating for 8.

Enjoy morning coffee or a glass of wine at sunset from the comfortable balcony filled with rattan & bamboo furniture, flowers and a BBQ. After a long, peaceful day at the beach, relax in front of the 2 flat screen TV’s, one in the living room (52” with DVD, CD, surround sound and Ipod dock) and one in the master bedroom (47”).

With breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean from Palos Verdes to Catalina Island to Malibu, this cozy beachfront retreat is yours to enjoy for a great family getaway, a romantic rendezvous or corporate/executive rental.
Just relax and rejuvenate every day as you watch sailboats drift by and dolphins play in the surf. Enjoy long walks along the beach and swim and play in the Pacific Ocean steps out your front door. Take a yoga class on the beach while watching and listening to the sound of the calming ocean waves, or take an easy bike ride to Manhattan Beach or Marina del Rey. Watch the sunset after a perfect day at the beach or walk down the street to enjoy the local restaurants in the little sleepy beach town of Playa del Rey, known for it’s solitude and ‘small town’ feel. Sleep peacefully to the sound of the ocean waves.

Close to the many attractions in Los Angeles, enjoy a day of exploring and sightseeing. Los Angeles Intl airport is just 10 minutes away. You will be only 10 minutes to Marina del Rey or Manhattan Beach, 20 minutes to Santa Monica or the Venice Boardwalk, 30 minutes to Hollywood, downtown L.A. and Malibu, 45 minutes to Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm or Universal Studios, and a 90 minute ferry ride to Catalina Island.

Whether you are interested in a family getaway with the kids or a romantic quiet rendezvous at the beach, we look forward to hearing from you so that we may share our little piece of ‘paradise’ with you.

While we love families/gatherings, we do not allow large groups or parties:)

                                  About the owner: After spending the last 16 years in Colorado raising our two girls, we have come 'back to the beach' to enjoy the Southern California lifestyle and now we are sharing our newly remodeled beach cottage for others to enjoy. We hope you have as many great memories in our oceanfront paradise as we have! Sherry & Stephen
