                            We absolutely recommend this fantastic space. The last thing you want when you are travelling are surprises and there are certainly none here. The views from the bedrooms are wonderful. Such a warm and welcoming place. Hermosa Beach is now one of our favourites in California and we will be back for more. Don't miss out on this fabulous rental.

                            What can we say. This home was one of the best vrbo experiences we have had the pleasure of enjoying. The home was exactly as described...very clean. Loved the boogie boards, definitely had fun with them. Great location and very quite neighborhood! just a walk around the corner for the park. The communication prior and until the day of departure was top notch. This one Is a no brainer. Thanks again

                            We were 5 girls from Norway in our mid-20's who stayed at the Beach Bungalow for one week in July, and our experience here was above all expectations!! The second you open the front door for the first time, this BEAUTIFUL bungalow is so welcoming and cozy, and we felt at home from the very start. This feeling was also enhanced because the owner, Joe, was so nice, helpful and welcoming! The first thing you notice are all the great pieces of art on the walls that Joe's wife has done. They really add to the beach atmosphere of Hermosa & Manhattan Beach. In addition to the great art, there were so many nice details; everything from the furniture to the towels and the books. Also the sofa's and beds were very comfy. There are a few tv's there, which we never even turned on, because the Bungalow is right around the corner from the beach, and within walking distance to Hermosa and Manhattan Beach, so there are just so many fun things to do in the area! But if you feel like a relaxing evening at home, the bungalow has everything you need for that as well! We cooked dinner a few nights, which was great, cause the kitchen is fully equipped with utensils etc. We will be back here for sure! It was the best vacation any of us has ever had, and Joe's beach bungalow played a big part in making the summer so amazing! Hope this was helpful - You will have an amazing time in Southern California if you decide to stay here!

                            My daughter, son in-law and my wife enjoyed our time here so much that we would would stay here anytime we came down from Nothern California. We would pack up our lunches for the day head down to the beach and come back for a nice relaxing evening watching gorgous sunsets. We love the easy laid back life style Hermosa has to offer and we really look forward to our next trip there. We have very fond memories of our time there with our daughter and son inlaw. We hope to get back real soon. Joe and Kelly ,the homeowners, promised my wife and I a glass of wine the next time we come down and we look forward to taking them up on their offer one more time!

                            My Fiance and I stayed there with our dog while we were doing Educational and Career exploratory research. We cam in from Colorado and we found it to be a wonderful CA getaway. We enjoyed our confortable stay there so much as well as our direct access to the beach, the strand, and all of LA county. We really enjoyed surfing (homeowners graciously lent us all their fun beach toys!) Great memories hope to get back real soon! Kelly and Joe are wonderful people and could not have been more accommodating!

                            We came and stayed over spring break vacation and had a wonderful family vacation. We cherished our morning walks along the ocean. We also loved packing up a picnic and walking down to the park where the kids played while we enjoyed a romantic picnic. We are hoping it is available again next year because I can't think of any other place that I would want to go for a beach vacation. There are a ton of kids in the neighborhood which made it really fun for my kids. My children still ask me how can someone live so close to such a big ocean and park at the same time? Thanks for a great vacation!

                            This cozy, little place offers big surprises and sweet rewards! After flying in from North Carolina, we were thrilled the ride from the airport was so short. What a nice surprise to find this quaint beach neighborhood with so many great amenities within walking distance. We especially enjoyed stopping at the local coffee shops and walking the Strand from Hermosa to Manhattan Beach every morning. The piers are a bonus! Our teenage children took full advantage of the beach toys and surf boards the homeowners generously provided, so while they were catching waves, we were catching up on some good books. The bungalow is very cute, fresh and nicely decorated. It offers everything you need for a laid back vacation and more! Our only complaint - the vacation was too short. We've been the past three years and look forward to our next visit. If you are heading anywhere near the Hermosa Beach area and this place is available, I highly recommend you book it, that is, unless we beat you to it!

                            My wife & I and loved staying in this beach bungalow. We have enjoyed the past three summers there and love watching the sunsets from the master bedroom. We love walking down to the beach, playing volleyball, and meeting up with some friends for a bite to eat at Martha’s or one of the other local restaurants. It’s charming and cozy! Just a great place to stay and enjoy all that Hermosa and Manhattan have to offer. The homeowners are super friendly and really wanted us to enjoy our time there, which we did! I recommend this as a place to stay to anyone that is looking for a fun beach vacation!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2003

                          About the owner: Our family enjoys this great family friendly neighborhood. We walk to the beach, and while we are there stop at Martha's for burgers and drinks. A fabulous park is just 5 minutes away. Sitting right between downtown Manhattan and Hermosa is fantastic. You don't have to decide where you go to dinner until you get to the bottom of the block. We have other beach rentals, and know this is one to enjoy.I am a photographer and my husband works in the entertainment industry. We are always inspired by the creativity of Hermosa beach and the beauty of Southern California.

                          Why the Owner Chose Hermosa Beach:
                          We love living in the north Hermosa sand section! When the weekend comes we park our car and walk to the beach, park, and great shops and restaurants in Hermosa and Manhattan! We feel like we are on vacation year round.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          We love to wake up early head out for a walk with our dogs, hit the strand kids in tow riding along on their bikes, scooters etc.. Stop along the way and get a bite to eat or a nice cup of hot coffee at some of favorite local restaurants and coffee shops.
