great ambiance, we especially enjoyed how close it was to the beach, restaurants, and shops. We plan to return to this house on our next vacation to California.

About the owner: Ive lived in the South bay for 25 years, Ive always loved it here and knew I would eventually settle here. Ive lived all over the US and a few countries in-between. I traveled quite a bit and experienced many different ways of life. Ive met hundreds of wonderful people along the way. Once I decided this is where I was going to stay I settled into a house by the beach and started my own business, a wholesale/retail store here in the South-bay. We manufactured interior accents. Eventually refurbishing vintage furniture and lighting. We made and restored some beautiful chandeliers and many of the pieces are in my house today. Part of the charm here at the house is the garden, it lush and very green with loads of flowers, super private and peaceful. I love gardening, we have a strawberry patch in the front yard along with a lemon tree. I always have lots of fresh cut flowers from around the property for the house. I enjoy making it nice and comfortable for my guests. Its a beautiful thing being by the ocean with the perfect weather and all the lush nature Ca. has to offer. This area is great for a get-a-way!
Why the Owner Chose Redondo Beach:
This was the perfect place for me. I was living a couple blocks away when I bought this house so my Mother could come out here and spend her golden years with our family and see her grandchildren grow up, this was the perfect house for both of us. We lived here for 12 years together before sadly she passed away. She loved the house as much as I do and I will always treasure our times together here. Now I have opened it up to others to enjoy. I have a loft apt. upstairs from the house that use now since its just me. I have completely separate entrance for both the yard and my loft. I am very respectful of my guests privacy when they are here. I usually don't see the guests when at the house unless of course something is needed Im just a text or call away. The house is filled with wonderful things and has great presence and energy. It just has a wonderful feeling about it. Its light and bright and spacious. It used to be a four bedroom now its a three but the rooms are just bigger which is great! All of my guests have said you cant tell from the outside how big the place is. They are always pleased with the house which makes me happy as well.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house was so charming I remember the first time I walked through it, so beautiful, it was filled with defused light and a breeze was coming off the ocean, you could smell the salt air, all of the windows were open and they open to the outside they were the original from the 20's. Original oak hardwood floors throughout all almost a century old but perfect! I loved the house, There are so many things the garden the beautiful fountain with the pond in the back and how it trickles making soothing sounds. The humming birds that flock to the yard and drink out of the top of the fountain! The have their babies here every year and we do get to see them from eggs to flying away! We have some wild life also in the yard that come with the area, they are wonderful to watch and are part of the charm here. Its a peaceful place, quiet, great neighbors. Its an old family neighborhood. Still you have everything you need without all the hassles of never finding parking, the crowds and lines:( (parking is a big deal here in LA) so if you live somewhere it is plentiful we consider this a major bonus:) I always thought this was one of South bays best kept secrets!
