About the property

1 bedroom, walk to beach, private patio

This updated and clean private cottage is close to everything in the South Bay. The home is situated on a private property with its own parking and private entrance. It is the perfect place to be if you want to feel the comforts of your own home while still being able to experience the beach life.

This cottage is a short walk (10 minutes) to the Redondo Beach Pier and south bay beaches, yet easily accessible to the freeways which will take you anywhere from Los Angeles to Orange County in less than an hour.

A short walk will take you to Pacific Coast Highway where you can catch the bus to any place in the South Bay, as well as to the local commuter train station.

A walk in any direction will take you to local exercise classes, restaurants, bars, salons, churches or parks. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need to stay a week or a couple of months.

About Carol Moreno

We love living by the ocean and near our family. We have a couple of rental properties and love to remodel and make them beautiful for whomever might stay or live in them.

Carol Moreno purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Carol Moreno chose Redondo Beach

We love how we are at the beach but not right down in the middle of the beach goers traffic. We have all the wonderful ocean breezes as well as a nice yard and privacy. What could be better!

What makes this cottage unique

The main house on the property, (our house) is over 100 years old. We have such respect for something that was built by hand. We've added to it by creating a beautiful front yard complete with fruit trees which we love to share with our neighbors.

A Great Alternative to a Hotel!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this adorable cottage with my 11 year old son for 4 nights in May 2017. The cottage is located close to the beach, and had everything we needed. It's very tastefully decorated, and well stocked. The owners, Carol and Wayne, were very accommodating and helpful. I'd definitely recommend this cottage!

Easy for Two

  • 3 of 5

The location was good for our visit as it was located close to family living in the area. The unit is a very small cottage which was fine for two people. The house was very clean with a number of small touches such as garlic cloves, extra soaps, lotion, hair dryer, bottled water, a Britta pitcher of water in the fridge and more. Having a parking spot was very convenient too.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Karen. I know you know how important reviews are. After speaking with your husband and hearing his feedback of our guesthouse, I am confused that you would only give 3 stars. It is disappointing as we do our best to make it as comfortable and clean as possible.

A Place to make plans to return to.

  • 5 of 5

The Perfect Beach Cottage was just that - Perfect. It was just the right size for my husband and I with the ability to have my son over for a couple of meals. Every creature comfort was thought of. The bed was nice and firm - just like home. The setting was calm and peaceful. The owners respected our privacy but kept in touch via e-mail to be sure we wanted for nothing. This is definitely where I would stay again.

This cottage is a true find in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved staying here. It's perfectly located for easy walks to the Redondo and Hermosa pier and beach areas. The landscaping is beautifully done and makes the cottage with it's outside patio area very private and peaceful. The decor inside and out is very nice with unique and thoughtful touches. It's well equipped and maintained, very clean and stocked with quality items (e.g., hand soaps, tissues etc.) for daily use. Wish we could have stayed for a month. It was a joy meeting Carol and Wayne and we appreciate their help in making our stay effortless. Carol--thanks for sharing your nectarines, they were delicious.

Car: recommended

This little cottage is ideally located if you want to be close to everything, but not in the center of it all. 15 minutes by car in any direction will take you to wherever you need to be - golfing, hiking, water activities, theatre, shopping. By foot a mile in any direction will get you to the pier, beach, restaurants, public transportation, shopping.

The local buses and train system will take you to Hollywood, downtown Los Angeles, shopping malls, or Union Station where you can catch the Amtrak train to anywhere in the country.
