Car: Not Necessary

Cal Beach Cottage is located in South Redondo Beach just minutes from the middle of Redondo Pier. A wide sand beach starts below the bluffs of Palos Verdes in the south (after Torrance Beach) and carries north to the Redondo Pier. A paved path, called The Strand runs from Torrance through South Redondo, north to Santa Monica. A typical day on this path will see thousands of people on foot, bicycle, skateboard, roller-blade, wheelchair and stroller enjoying the sun and surf. The continuous path is broken only by the massive Redondo Beach King Harbor Marina and Pier complex, where it veers away from water and onto dedicated lanes of surface streets for about a mile before again turning to the ocean in Hermosa Beach. Continuing north from Manhattan Beach, this path stretches well into Marina Del Rey and beyond with few breaks.

Our cottage is 20 minutes South of LAX Airport and 45 minutes to Disneyland by car. But the best thing is you can walk to stores, restaurants, bars and pier/beach!

Other Activities: Surfing, fishing, sailing, whale watching, beach volleyball, golf, horseback riding...

Golf: Palos Verdes is just a 20 minute drive away, there are many golf courses in this area.

Terranea Resort Golf Course

Trump National Golf Course

Los Verdes Golf Course

Ski: The local mountains are 2-3 hours away, depending on traffic... Bear Summit, Snow Valley are great for families. You can be at the beach surfing or playing volleyball and be skiing or snowboarding the next day!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Lived in Torrance since the 1970's, grew up rollerskating to the beach, but moved to Japan during the 80s and traveled all over Asia, came back to live in Redondo Beach in the 90s. I play beach volleyball every Sunday at Hermosa Beach and enjoy the beach life to the fullest with my husband and 2 young children. I want as many people as possible to experience this friendly beach community and hope to that guests go home feeling like the cottage is their second home.

Why the Owner Chose Redondo Beach:
It is on a beautiful historic street with homes from the early 1900's this property is a 1908 authentic craftsman home with original wood floors, claw foot tub and wavy glass windows. It's a charming antique home that is in the most convenient location, with restaurants and supermarkets just one block away. The nearest breakfast diner just 4 homes away is a historic landmark of Redondo Beach called Eat at Joe's. Guests can walk to the beach and pier and it's a short drive to Disneyland, Hollywood and all the famous site seeing places in LA, and just 15-20 minutes from the airport to the north and 15-20 minutes to beautiful golf courses in Palos Verdes to the south.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage is perfect for families with small children, with everything from diaper changer/crib/booster chairs and toys and books for little ones, yet once those are put away in the closets, the cottage is a romantic cozy home for couples to snuggle by the fireplace, or for business people to work on the computer. It's so quiet we have writers that come and work on novels, and repeat guests who visit each year for medical reasons because it is so comfortable.
