  • Sleeps6

3 BED 2.5 BATH comfy cottage close to beach and California Attractions!

Our personal home is a beautiful little gem of a cottage at a reasonable price. Pristine clean, french inspired decoration, sleeps 6, popular for wedding groups or guests and families, though all ages will enjoy it. Did we mention COMFY BEDS? Live like a beach local. Popularly known for being clean and feeling like "home" and not a vacation rental. We live in a low key, pretty neighborhood convenient to entertainment, markets and restuarants and the beach.

Located in a perfect area: 1.4 miles from the beach and on average less than 1 hour to major California attractions. We accommodate business travelers, vacationers, guests for special occasions, (weddings) etc. Let us know if children are coming, as we take extra care to childproof the house so you do not have to worry.

Vaulted ceilings, 2 king beds, 1 queen bed - 2.5 bath, sleeps 6. Flat screen TV's in every room, AC, luxury kitchen with amenities. Being a musical couple, we have a piano to play, and you can request an acoustic guitar if desired. Backyard has the feel of Greece, with BBQ. We have boogie boards and beach toys, umbrella and chairs for the beach! Must be OK with our small, quiet and friendly dogs who live with us in a back house, not in your house.

We respect your privacy. As this is our personal home when you are not renting from us, we expect total respect for our property as well. We are available when you need us. Text or call us if you need anything. You are never bothering us! We stay in a small back studio of our property. We can offer all kinds of fun suggestions (native Californians) to have while here. It is important to us to make your time here memorable!

About Maria Monroe

Paul and I (I am a rare native Californian!) are both very creative. Paul, being a professional drummer, and myself, being a singer/songwriter (Christina Aguilera) and vocal coach. We live an active, healthy California lifestyle, love animals and support animal rights and rescues. We also own an IT company in Redondo Beach. We love movies, musical theatre, good cooking, motivation inspired projects, bike riding and a great sunset.

Maria Monroe purchased this House in 2006

Why Maria Monroe chose Seaside

This was the first house we ever bought and built from the ground up! We put alot of heart and soul into it. I have created it into my vision of a French cottage, being inspired from many trips to Europe. We built it from the ground up and are always working on it with love and passion.

What makes this House unique

What I love about our home is that it is OUR home! It feels so comfy and cozy and many guests rave about the feeling of being "at home" and not a vacation rental. Since I travel so much my influences are France, Italy and Greece! All of our guests respect our home back because I think they feel the love we put into it.
