Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: Lee and I have experienced the joy of living in this beautiful home for over 28 years. We are the original owners. Watching this sanctuary built from the ground up was such a privilege, so exciting. It now holds some wonderful memories of the many visits of both our immediate family, and the many travelers we call family that have stayed with us over the years. As both our family, and those of our extended traveling families move on, we have been encouraged to move on as well..........and that is into the world of the VRBO. We love sharing our special haven with others, and our many friends encouraged us to open our cottage to others that would enjoy its comfort and peace. Please call for a chat. I love sharing all the quaint offerings of Hermosa Beach and the cottage. 310-344-4060

Why the Owner Chose Hermosa Beach:
Although Lee is a transplant from the SF Valley, I was raised by the water, and have lived in Hermosa Beach for 38 years. It has dramatically changed over that time, becoming more of a hot spot in the South Bay. Our home is close enough to the action to enjoy a nice cocktail and still walk home, but far enough away from those that don't remember where home is. That charm of the beach, and the beautiful ocean view from our living room, were all it took to fall in love with our dream home.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The property is next to a beautiful open park. It is quiet and peaceful. Lee and I have enjoyed the comfort and tranquility this home has offered us, as well as the beautiful ocean just a short walk away. Are these 'unique benefits'? They were to two people wanting to escape the chaos of the city. We hope that you enjoy these 'unique benefits' on your stay with us :)
