About the property

This unit in Hawthorne is minutes from LA attractions, shopping & entertainment.

Near LAX and great beaches (Manhattan, Hermosa, Redondo). New kitchen, great location, and comfortable. Spacious unit tucked between two families on a beautifully landscaped property. Close to shopping, entertainment, and the airport.

A beautifully remodeled unit of a triplex (only three units on the property) in a nice, walk-able west Hawthorne neighborhood. Family friendly as well as nice for couples or business travel. Easily sleeps up to 3 adults (1 queen bed and 1 pull-out full sofa bed). The sofa bed can fit two children.

Free WiFi and Netflix.

10 minutes to LAX

15 minutes to Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach

30 minutes to Downtown LA

45-50 minutes to Disneyland

Guest Access

A parking spot for one vehicle at the left end of the driveway (should feel comfortable going in reverse to get out of the driveway). Any seating area in the driveway and in the backyard is free to relax.

The neighborhood is nice and you will see people walking their dogs and running for exercise. We are the last multi-family unit before a predominant single family home area.

Getting around

We are close to buses, the green line (train) is only 2 miles away. It is much easier to get around by car, but bikes are also an option. A taxi to/from the airport ranges from $10-20.

Other Things to Note

Overall it is a quiet place, but occasionally neighbors can make some noise coming and going (the bedroom window is near a driveway for a 4-plex).

For young children we do have a Graco (pack n play) crib and a high chair available.

Nice Little Unit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our anniversary the last few days. We were only there for 3 nights, so we wanted somewhere close to the airport, the beach, and reasonable driving distance to Universal. This worked great for us. Nice little unit for the price. Lucy was a gracious, very responsive host!

Perfect for our stay

  • 5 of 5

Lucy was a great host. Her place was super clean and quiet. Private parking was a plus for us. We literally walked just 3 blocks to have amazing dinner at Al Watan Halal. I will definitely stay again with Lucy.

Quiet, great location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property for almost a month. It was clean and well-furnished. Lucy was friendly and easy to communicate with. During the month there was a scheduled power outage and she let me know as soon as she did the requirements for that day, which was a big help. This is in a good neighborhood, with lots of shopping and restaurants that are easy to get to plus the beach is within easy access. We had a few rainy days and the apartment was quiet to get some special projects done. Would definitely stay again!

Quiet and clean

Very nice ittle flat! Everything you could need. The only thing I could have needed is a softer pillow. They provided the expensive kind for your neck alignment, but I found I had trouble sleeping with my neck elevated.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! Sorry the pillows in the bedroom didn't accommodate your needs--if only I would have known... There are a few more (and less full) pillows in the living room ottoman with the extra bedding for the pull out couch. Thanks again for staying at our place!

Nice little unit.

  • 5 of 5

Clean and nicely presented unit. Plenty of utensils and the like in the kitchen and the pantry was stocked with the basics which was really appreciated. Dealing with Lucy was easy and she was fast to respond.

We did have some issues with the wi-fi turning itself off, but we weren't in the unit much so this didn't really bother us too much and we just turned it off and back on again and it worked fine.

You really need a car for this area and we had no trouble backing down the drive. The only complaint we had was the "party" that happened behind us with lots of loud music and signing that went late, but this wasn't Lucy's fault. We would highly recommend.

Perfect !!!

  • 5 of 5

Lucy was so very kind and thoughtful. Booking was quick and easy. The apartment was identical to the pictures, everything was super clean and wonderfully organized. The neighborhood was comfortable as well so sitting outside enjoying your coffee or afternoon tea is relaxing. We made the trip to LA from the east coast for my daughter's 16th birthday, not only did Lucy greet us when we arrived, she wished her Happy Birthday and everything was perfect. Best sleep I have ever had while on vacation. We found a gem of a place to eat just a couple of blocks away thanks to the welcome notebook Lucy provides. Don't judge a book by it's cover, Piggy's is a small diner with very reasonable prices and HUGE plate servings. The food is great! Don't let the freeway traffic of LA scare you when you look at directions. Set your GPS to avoid highways. This apartment couldn't be any better located, it was only a few blocks from the car rental company. We took side roads nearly everywhere the entire week and had a wonderful time seeing different views of California we would have certainly missed if we were on the freeway. Lucy thank you for letting us stay, it was the most comfortable apartment I have rented on vacation, you thought of everything! We look forward to future visits!!
