About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The cottage is a private guesthouse that is quaint and separate from the main house. It is a beautiful open, airy great room design with cathedral ceilings and lots of light. It boasts a large separate deck with room to have a barbecue and a patio table, as well, as room to sunbathe if you don't feel like walking the one block to the beach! The deck is totally private and only used by you and your guests. Many properties located this close to the beach do not have much outdoor space because of the size of the lots this close to the beach. There is private off-street parking designated for your car only. No moving your car to get out of the way of another car!

Beach equipment, boogie boards, beach chairs and towels are available at the cottage. Bikes,too!

Many things are within walking distance i.e. stores, all water sports, bicycle rentals, restaurants for dinner as well as a wonderful breakfast place called Martha's. The Strand is one block away. Perfect for walking, riding, running, rollerblading. It is a fabulous location and absolutely quiet.

Comedy and Magic Club is within walking distance where Jay Leno performs each Sunday night.

We loved our little beach cottage. It's cozy and charming. It's an easy walk to the beach and restaurants and lots of activities. We hope we can come back again!

Awesome place to stay !!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, clean, well kept property with everything you need, comfortable bed, full size kitchen, dishwasher, washer/dryer, bikes, beach chairs, beach towels, grill, deck, 1 block from the beach, everything you need within walking or biking distance.

Several restaurants and bars within 6 blocks, along with the Hermosa Beach pier.

The owner lives on the property and couldn't be nicer or more accommodating.

We stayed in the apartment over the garage, but there is also a studio apartment for rent connected to the main house.

We will rent the apt. again in a heartbeat the next time we go visit our daughter, so much better than a hotel. Thank You !!

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the cottage and the studio during our 10 day visit to Hermosa from London to visit our daughter. Both places were lovely and had everything we needed,we especially enjoyed the lovely garden. The position could not have been better near a small store and Martha's for breakfast.

We no doubt will be returning. Thanks Jacquelin for a great stay.

Couldnt have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

MY husband and I rented the cottage above the garage for 4 nights over the Easter long weekend.

Everything was excellent! Great location- so close to the beach, great apartment extremely clean & comfortable, great use of the bikes which we used every day as we did not have a car. The location was everything we hoped for and we were able to do so much from eating out, to shopping, to exercising along the beach, etc.

It is a very safe and quiet area and I would highly recommend this choice of accommodation. So much better than a hotel and much more value for the price. The only small issue we had was that the wooden shutters on the bedroom window dont provide a good blockout so some roller blinds on the windows would have helped with this. (It's only because we are light sleepers and need the darkness but is probably not an issue for most people). Would definitely book the accommodation in the future if we return for a visit again!

Great Location, exceptional stay

  • 5 of 5

We split our stay between the one-bedroom apartment at this location and the studio, and they are both delightful. Couldn't have a better location for beach access, and having an off-street parking spot is important when you're that close to the beach. The apartment is well-equipped, with a full kitchen. There is also a lovely outdoor deck with sun lounges and an table with a sun umbrella. Much appreciated!
