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.

About Lucy

I'm a children's book writer with many hobbies. My wonderful computer software engineer husband and I have five great kids. We are Mormon and love living in Los Angeles. I like to garden and do outdoor activities.

Lucy purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Lucy chose Hawthorne

We have a great little complex that is home to my family and a another quiet family in the back. We are close to several L.A. attractions and great Southern California weather. Come visit us and you are sure to come back.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at this place. It has all the amenities needed and is convenient to everything. Los Angeles attractions are close and the neighborhood is pretty quiet. Airport is super close when leaving so you’re not stuck in any traffic.

Clean and convenient

Lucy and family have been wonderful. The space is great with a cozy feel and comfortable living. So much better than a cookie cutter hotel room. Thank you, Lucy!

Great place to stay near LAX

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place that was close to LAX without actually being right next to the airport since we had an early morning departure flight. This apartment was in a great neighborhood with easy access to the 110 and the 405. It was super clean and comfortable. Contacting Lucy was very easy. Would recommend!

Excellent! Would definitely recommend.

  • 5 of 5

I have now stayed at this property numerous times both with my husband and a friend. The apartment is compact, clean and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is in a perfect location for everything.

Lucy is always close by and deals with any questions you have promptly. This also goes with the booking procedure.

Many thanks and look forward to returning in 2018.
