About Miriam Litman

My husband and I live in the main house with our two lovely parrots. We are very quiet and private people, and not intrusive. My husband works at a university and I work from home. We like to hike, power walk, novice astronomers, and I love to crochet.

Why Miriam Litman chose West Torrance

We picked this property because is in a great neighborhood so close to Redondo, Manhattan, and Hermosa beach. The school district here is superb. The beach area is a more laid back and casual environment, so it fits our personalities, plus the location is perfect! You can do so much around this area from going to a mall to driving 5 minutes to go to the beach to driving 15 minutes and going hiking right on the beach in Palos Verdes Estates. We have an abundance of choices of restaurants and bars to go to within a 2 mile radius. Weather is the best too, not too hot and not too cold.

What makes this Studio unique

Private entrance to a Studio apartment so we may never see each other. We are close to beach, restaurants and bars in a very popular location in Southern California. There is a beautiful private patio in between the main house and the cottage that you are more than welcome to use.

                                                              Lovely, cozy, garden cottage!

                                                              So glad that I chose this cottage instead of staying in a hotel. Was in town for an intensive training course for a form of behaviour therapy that I’m implementing into my clinical practice. After long days of learning this was the perfect quiet spot to rest and recuperate!

                                                              Thank you!

                                                              Just what I needed!

                                                              It was a very nice room. Miriam was so helpful; Thank you for making my stay so pleasant.

                                                              Cute cottage with all the amenities!

                                                              The cottage was perfect! It had anything I could’ve needed plus amazing location. Super clean and updated, just like the pictures. Miriam was a great host as well! I would definitely stay there again!!!

                                                              Exactly as advertised! Plus more peace & quiet

                                                              Exactly what I was hoping for! Property owner lives on the property in a detached building. I had total privacy, and uber peace and quiet. Not too far from the beach and freeways.

                                                              This is a tiny apartment. In excellent condition. Microwave and mini-fridge were fine with me, but be aware , no cooking.

                                                              Owner came right over when I asked for a folding chair to do work. Amazing response! Very nice and accomodating owner.

                                                              One thing, I travel with my own pillow, and was glad I did.. personal taste for sure however.

                                                              I wouldn't hesitate to return!

                                                              Thank you staying with us, it was a pleasure. We hope to see you soon, and we are glad you were so happy with the cottage. We strive for customer satisfaction!



                                                              Very clean. We had everything we needed. Perfect for two. Great location!
