Beautiful, comfortable family home near Redondo Beach. Just minutes from the beach, dining and shopping and convenient to LAX. Plenty of room for a family or large group. 5 BR, 4 full baths and 2 half baths. Includes office space and multiple desks/work stations. Outdoor pool and patio area with barbeque, basketball hoop and converted garage to serve as additional lounging and recreation area.

Our home is in a family neighborhood, near the beach but without the density and parking hassles of a beach neighborhood. Nearby beaches include Redondo Beach, Torrance Beach, Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach. Closest beach is walkable - about 1 mile to the end of Knob Hill Ave. Riviera Village with plenty of restuarants, bars and boutique shopping is about 1.5 miles away. Del Amo Mall in Torrance is about 1 mile away. About 20 minutes from LAX.

This is our family home that we still use part of the year. It is in a family neighborhood. Please treat our home and neighbors with respect. No parties or events and keep noise down after 10PM.

                                      The house was great and in a perfect location.

                                      My family and I came to LA and stayed in the house for 6 nights. The house was very comfortable and really well setup with great furnishings and everything we needed. The owners were super accommodating and we really enjoyed our stay. Thanks!

                                      A wonderful home for our family reunion; a perfect entertainment area, plenty of private space, beautifully furnished.

                                      Tessa W.

                                      Our executive team stayed here while doing business in Torrance. The home was just as described, spacious, well furnished, and very comfortable.

                                      The instructional signage throughout the home made navigating the home easy even for first-time visitors.

                                      We will definitely be back!

                                      I would give the property and managers 6 stars if I could.

                                      Kacey and Kelly were great; they gave us two mobile numbers in case we had any problems. Kacey answered the three texts with my trivial questions very quickly. This house is newly constructed with an excellent floor plan; it is absolutely spotless and is in a quiet and nice neighborhood. We stay at a lot of VRBO properties and this was one of the best. The house was offered at a excellent price especially considering the great location near Redondo Beach. We will be coming back I'm sure.

                                      My family of 5 along with my mother-n-law, sister-n-law and two nieces had a wonderful time. We spent a week in the area and the house was exceptional. The pool house is a great place for the kids to hang out. Plenty of space for all of us. We would definitely come back to this vacation house and highly recommend it for others. It was close to the mall and close to the beach.
