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.

over all very good

  • 4 of 5

Overall was a very nice stay, Lucy was always available if needed, quiet place, clean, had everything we needed, centrally located to the areas we were visiting. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star was because I personally think the cleaning fee is high considering you expect your guests to take their trash out and clean their dishes before leaving. otherwise I would definitely come back again!

Hawthorne retreat

  • 5 of 5

Lucy and Luke are wonderful hosts. Property is as advertised. Close to LAX, close to Manhattan Beach, and close to Zacatecas Mexican restaurant. All good. Nice and quiet, and I enjoyed my morning tea everyday in the sweet little garden in the back with the little birds and butterflies. Loved my stay here. Thanks, Lucy!

Very nice apartment and Lucy was always available to help if needed.

  • 4 of 5

Well stocked with towels, linens, and dishes. She even provided beach towels and chairs that we had the chance to use when we went to the beach. My only advice is to use the earplugs already provided if you are a light sleeper.
