The best vacation yet!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your Cottage on the Strand. You went above and beyond to make us comfortable. The house was equiped with everything that we needed and it all matched in your blue and white beachy decor. The house is located near it all. We parked our car at the house and walked everywhere the entire week! We would recommend this house to anyone who wants a great, comfortable house in a perfect location.

Excellent Beach Front Location With California Beach House Feel

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week in Hermosa. The view was amazing, waking up to it was the perfect start to every morning. The house had all the space and comforts we needed and is located only a short walk from all the restaurants and bars at Hermosa Pier. If you fancied something different the shops, bars and restaurants at Manahattan Beach and Redondo Beach were also only a short walk away.

The house was everything we had hoped for when we read the listing. The boys loved being so close to the lovely beach there. The house had a very laid back beach house feel to it but at the same time was very clean and tidy with all the amenities, equipment and space we needed for a large family of eight.

We had a very busy week in LA visiting all the local attractions such as Disney Land, Universal Studios and Santa Monica and the house provided a perfect base to set out from. We found that we had a great location for reaching all the places we wanted to visit but having the perfect get away from it location at the same time.

I would definitely look to stay there again when we visit LA in the future.

Hermosa Beach is the place!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house is great. We walked everywhere. The view was amazing and the volleyball courts were right in front of house. The cottage was very well stocked and provided a beach house feel. The internet worked very well and everyone had a bed. The kitchen had everything we needed for all our meals. I would definitely recommend for people who want to relax and not have walk anywhere. Hermosa is a great beach town for a nice break.

We owned a home on the beach for a weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a terrific time staying here for a girls' weekend. We drank wine, sat on the front patio looking out at the ocean most of the day, played a little volleyball on the beach, took in a bit of the sun on the beach as well. For a "cottage" I was expecting it to be small, but the living room was open, airy and light. The bedrooms with the King bed and Queen bed were both a nice size. The rooms with the Full beds were more of the small, beach cottage size you'd expect. But all beds/rooms were comfortable and large enough. I'd say the only negatives - and for me these were so minor it doesn't change my 5-Star review: it gets a bit hot upstairs, The Strand can get loud (you'd be surprised what people talk about in public - LOL) but this is mostly during the day, and upstairs the ceilings slant in the corners so if you're tall beware of hitting your head. Lastly, the terms and conditions are restrictive - limited number of guests, no additional guests to visit, etc. So, definitely do not plan to host a party here. The deposit was also a bit onerous which made me nervous having never rented this property or worked with the owner before, but as soon as we vacated the full deposit was refunded immediately. As long as you take care of the home and follow the rules I can't imagine you'll have an issue getting your deposit back. We loved our weekend of beach house "ownership." Thank you!

Your group was the perfect guests for our house as I do pride myself in making sure that I pick groups just like yours! I hope that we can see you all another time... Come back for a reunion anytime!

Great location and comfy living

  • 5 of 5

The location of the Cottage was phenomenal - whether you wanted to hit the beach or walk down the Strand to restaurants or bars - everything was right there. We flew in for a wedding that had multiple venue locations and this location was central that we felt like we were less than a $20 Uber to everywhere we needed to go.

The house comfortably slept our 10 guests and we all felt like we had the right amount of privacy with the room set-up. Coming back to LA we would certainly choose the Cottage on The Strand.
