About Carla and David Brown
David and Carla Brown are the owners who live in the front house on the property. David is an attorney with his own law practice in Redondo Beach and Carla manages the law office as well as their investment properties. David went to school in Portland, Oregon and Carla was born and raised in Texas until moving out to California in 2000. They are avid travellers and have stayed at many VRBO and AirBNB's all over the world.
Carla and David Brown purchased this House in 2014
Why Carla and David Brown chose North Redondo
We love being by the beach, and wanted a place that is close to the airport, the law office and the 405. This is the best of all worlds. We are eight minutes from the beach, fifteen minutes from the airport, five minutes from our office and five minutes to the 405 that takes us to downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Malibu, etc.. Life is good here in the beach cities.
What makes this House unique
We had a vision for this property. We wanted a cape cod look and feel. We remodelled in 2016 and were able to achieve our goal for the most part. It is still a work in progress. We like to take our time and add unique touches whenever we find something that we love during our travels. We remodelled the back house first, and lived in it while we renovated the front house. We grew very fond of the back house after we added our special touches to it and decided to just keep it for the use of friends and family when they visited us. However, the house sits vacant in between visits and it is hard for a property to just sit without being used. That's when we decided to rent out the back house through VRBO when it is vacant. We use the income from the rental to put back into the property. We are currently working on the backyard behind the back house. We have purchased furniture for the sitting area and we are having a putting green installed to add a little entertainment value to the property. It's a win win for everyone.

Ahhhmazing cottage and owner attention to details!
I stay in many VRBO properties across the country throughout the year when I travel, and none have measured up to this property and the loving detail and service of the property owners. Not only is everything fresh, updated, and extremely well appropriated, the owners desire to make us feel comfortable and welcome did not go unnoticed.
From the personal welcome by Carla and David, with David carrying our heavy luggage up the stairs to the cottage, to the lovely Pinot Noir upon our arrival and the fresh croissants and coffee for the morning- our stay was unparalleled. They even fed-ex some shoes I left in the closet the next day!
The location to beaches, major roads, the PCH and other major freeways made this spot very convenient for getting to our favorite LA area spots. The neighborhood was quiet, the beds comfortable and every possible need was met.
I highly recommend this property to anyone needing a comfortable, convenient place to stay in the LA area.
Thank you Carla and David! We look forward to staying again the next time we are in your area!
Fabulous! Exactly as advertised!
This was the perfect home base for our visit! The space looks exactly like the pictures. It’s thoughtfully decorated and feels delightfully beachy. It’s also private, you have lots of space to yourself.
Carla has it thoroughly stocked, she even set up several great things to accommodate our 5 month old, including a pack n play, stroller, and disposable changing pads! So sweet and convenient.
It’s close to good food and easy grocery shopping, we went to Trader Joe’s then made brunch in the kitchen and had everything we needed.
It was a big college football weekend for us and the living room/tv set up worked so great. We had all the channels we needed and comfy seating for everyone.
It was a quick drive to the beach, easily accessible to downtown LA, and comfortable to just hang out in. Exactly what we needed for a family weekend with a young baby! Highly recommend! Thanks so much Carla!
Our family stayed in this home for five nights in August, and we would wholeheartedly echo the praise from reviewers below. The owners are terrific, and the home is fantastic. Exceptionally clean, quiet, well-appointed, and comfortable. The pride the owners take in the property is readily apparent throughout. Beds are great, shower great, living area great, little back porch and sitting area great, and the kitchen is great. That's alot of greats, and every one of them is well-deserved. Binder of info left for guests is really helpful, and the home is well positioned to take advantage of beaches and of the city.
We've stayed in many VRBOs. This one is a standout. Book without hesitation!
My wife and my son love it great place everything you need is there,very close to the beach.David and Carla where great will stay there again if and the area. Jorge,Monica,George Villanueva
Wonderful beach house; Far exceeded our expectations
From the moment we arrived, we were blown away by the care and attention to detail Carla and David had put into this house and the experience they are sharing with those of us fortunate enough to discover this gem. They started by taking the time to give us a tour of the house, ensuring we knew where everything was and how it all worked, followed by giving us a binder they had put together with their favorite dining locations (a must for people visiting an area for the first time) and things to do in the area. They topped the tour off with fresh gourmet croissants and a fridge stocked with a few basics to get us over the traveling hump. Seriously, coffee, juice and the best croissants you'll find this side of France, who does that?
The house was impeccably decorated, subtle and classy with a unmistakable beach feel. As we settled in with our two teen-aged boys, we were further impressed with the thoughtfulness of a new PS4 complete with games and a guest-house Netflix account. An added bonus for those travelling with kids to the beach, or lets be honest, kids in general, is the inclusion of a vacuum and they had thought of that as well.
From the moment Carla and David finished the tour and bade us a wonderful vacation, we felt as though we had simply come home. As we sit here writing this review, sharing our favorite moments we all agree we are homesick and cannot wait to return to "our" beach home.
