"I stayed here while I was working on location in LA and it quickly became my home away from home!
I worked long hours and it was the most relaxing place to be when I had time off. So quiet when I needed to sleep and so close to the beach so I could take long walks in the morning and enjoy the ocean and sun. It has so many fabulous reading areas. My favorite is the area near the windows facing the walk street. So peaceful. And a fireplace and a hot tub and a grill!
The bed was one of the more comfortable mattresses I've ever slept on and they provide excellent sheets and plenty of towels.
I'm from nyc so being able to walk places is very important to me. I could walk to Abbot Kinney in 5 min where I had many coffee options (blue bottle and Intelligentsia) and great food and shops. Every Sunday morning I would also walk to the Santa Monica farmers market which was 15 min max and a nice walk. I cannot wait to come back! I am almost hesitant to post this review because I want to keep it a secret. The place is also clean and well designed/decorated and the owners are so attentive when you need them but otherwise leave you be.
I will be back I hope in the near near future."

"After years of staying in hotels while visiting a relative who resides in Redondo Beach, we decided to give this Home Away Rental a try. This enchanting, historic bungalow proved to be one of the best vacation choices we have ever made.
We felt immediately comfortable in this well kept and beautifully landscaped property. The owners, Susan and Bill, were most helpful and friendly, even providing a well appreciated gift basket. The location is in a quiet, settled neighborhood, but only one and a half blocks from the beach. Riviera Village, with its unique shops, coffee cafes, grocery stores, and exciting restaurants is also within easy walking distance. Really, we are in our sixties, and it was a pleasure to be able to walk everywhere, even down to the Pier.
The kitchen was well equipped. The beds were comfortable. A gas grill was also provided for the pretty backyard patio. We enjoyed the well decorated front room and den. A favorite place to relax was on the backyard swing. Being surrounded by beautiful plants, inside and out, brought true delight and relaxation everyday. Exactly what we wanted. While visiting, we enjoyed day trips to Joshua Tree National Park and Torrey Pines State Reserve in La Jolla. The free hiking trails at Trump National Golf Course were also a favorite spot along the coast in Palos Verdes.
We can't wait to come back to this lovely Home Away where we will, once again, feel like we live in Redondo Beach."

"My family and I rented this charming home in Santa Monica over the Christmas holidays.
It was everything that a family of four could wish for. It has a very private front yard, two bedrooms and two baths. The kitchen had all modern appliances and was everything we needed to prepare a Christmas banquet. The living room had a Samsung Smart TV and we were able to plug in our Apple TV module and get even more viewing options. The location of the house was only a ten minute walk down to the iconic walk along the beach. All in all we were very happy with the accommodations and recommend the house to one and all."

PERFECT Venice Beach Location!!! (This is our new vacation lodging whenever we're in town)
"My sister and I had a girls trip planned and did not have a rental car. Many local friends mentioned what a GREAT location we were in and we couldn't agree more! We rented the bungalow in the back, utilized the bikes for evening boardwalk cruising and the short trip up to Santa Monica, walked 2 blocks over to Abbott Kinney and used the Starline Tour bus (which Carmen mentioned to us) to hitch a ride into LA and do the touristy thing for 2 days. The beach is literally 3-4 blocks from the house!! The bungalows are close and with everyone's windows open you can hear others moving about but everyone was always respectful of the time of day and friendly in passing.
Carmen has thought of everything! Don't worry about packing beach towels, hair dryers, etc...she even had an ironing board. She lives just down the street and was readily available to us if we had any questions. Carmen was ever so helpful and went above and beyond, down to offering us a ride to the airport as she would be headed that way to pick up her sister on the same day as our departure.
I can't say enough about the wonderful experience we had at this lit'l bungalow. We will ABSOLUTELY be keeping in touch with Carmen to stay here again!"
