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.

A nice property with many up-to-date needed items.
There are three places outside for sitting (when it is not raining). Very comfortable beds. House was very clean. Owners left some welcoming food (milk, eggs, OJ, etc.) in the fridge which was very nice for us as we didn't have a car and didn't want to go out in the rain to find food. The house is very unique, up-scale more than others we have stayed at: lots of pillows, large TV with many features. It was truly a "real" house above a garage area with off street parking for one car. Owners super kind. Laundry area we could use. Very nicely decorated. It was as well stocked as my own house with the things you need in a home. Full bath in the corridor and a half bath in the master. Carla met us and showed us around and was easily available, if needed. I rate it 5 out of 5!! There was not one thing that we needed and couldn't find in the house.
our best VRBO experience yet!
The property was well maintained and offered just about every amenity one could think of. The owners, Carla and David, were very gracious and shared helpful information on local sights. It was nice having milk, croissants, coffee, and other breakfast items to get us started. The location was perfect, with quick access to beaches, restaurants, parks, and the airport. We felt at home from the moment we arrived. Highly recommended!
Amazing hospitality - super comfortable with all the amenities!
Unlike other places where it's obvious that the owners "decorated" with leftovers & castoffs, Carla & Dave have created a beautiful rental with stylish AND comfy furniture (both inside and outside!), high quality bedding, and seriously, all the amenities. We can't think of one thing that we needed that was not available in this gem. The rental is amazingly quiet, private, and very clean. It is easy to check in and INSTANTLY relax and feel at home. The kids loved watching movies & playing games on the tv and wrapping themselves in the fuzzy blankets. We loved having King & Queen beds so none of us felt squished. Carla & Dave are beyond generous, providing us not only with a tour on arrival, but beverages in the fridge, the coffee maker ready to go and yummy baked goods. They were readily accessible if needed (not that we needed it - they've really thought of everything) and super friendly. I can't say enough good things about these hosts. One of the best experiences ever! It was also nice to be 5-10 minutes driving distance from everything - the beaches, Target, Whole Foods, Barnes & Noble, Trader Joe's - yet be far enough away not to be stuck in the noise or traffic. Often by the end of a vacation, we're ready to leave and be home, but it was really hard to leave Carla & Dave's. We hope to return very soon!
This was the best VRBO we have ever visited
As soon as we walked into the apartment, I knew we were going to be happy staying here. It was very open, bright and welcoming. The kitchen was so well equipped with everything you needed and then some. The owners Carla and Dave even told us not to stop at the store for anything. They had coffee, creamer, juice, eggs and croissants for us. The were 2 bedrooms with the most comfortable mattresses (king and queen) I have slept on. There was even a roll out cot available in a closet if needed. The towels, linens etc were plentiful. We also had access to the laundry facilities if needed. The personal touches made this VRBO truly a home away from home. The location was great for us visiting our children and grandchildren, close to the beach and plenty of restaurants. Since we plan on retuning to the Los Angeles yearly, we can't wait to stay here again. Thank you Dave and Carla.
Great place in an awesome location! Had everything you could possibly need and then some. Carla and David are super hospitable and really go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. Would love to stay again!
