This cottage is an organic dwelling. We don't use pesticides. As such, you may be visited by some bugs such as daddy long legs spiders, and gnats during gnat season. They are harmless. For the safety of our guests, we prefer a few bugs to a poisoned environment. If you do see a spider, please don’t scream, as it may scare her.
An incredibly and unique location, a quick walk to the beach and summer fun!
This unit is one of 2 on the property. The second unit, a casita, can be added to your reservation for larger groups. A large yard separates the 2 properties, and offers a playground.

I am originally from a small midwestern town, and have lived in many places around the world but keep returning here to the paradise in the cove....Redondo Beach. I love the diversity of the South Bay, from the diversity of the people, to the diversity of the terrain: tide pools to eucalyptus forests, coastline resorts to working ranches just inland... I love living in the south bay!
Why Suzi chose Torrance
People love this little beach house, close to everything from beach, surfing, hiking, biking, and local spa and shops, to Disneyland to Universal Studios. Located on the hill above Miramar Park (in the Upper Riviera), this basic little house is walkable to the ocean! It's a beautiful haven in the trees, away from bustle of the South Bay. The Upper Riviera has with the feel of the Pacific Northwest, boasting incredible natural features like tide pools, Palos Verdes cliffs and hiking trails, and the beautiful cove of south Redondo Beach. Walk right out the back gate of the property onto a quiet wood chip trail that leads 2 blocks from the ocean. Walk down to the water in just about 15 minutes.
What makes this House unique
Close to ocean, organic, free parking, run/bike/walk to beach, private hot tub, Extremely kid-friendly yard & home, in a forest of eucalyptus trees, on a wood chip trail used for hiking and jogging, close to Trader Joe's, Von's, shopping, Riviera Village spas, cafes, and shops. Our home is located close to cross streets Calle Mayor and Palos Verdes Blvd. Riviera Village is the local shopping area and a great location for dining... tons of good little food spots there. You really can't go wrong. Also a Trader Joe's, a Von's, and a Smart & Final, several banks, spas, pubs... For recreation, Olympus Paddle Boards or Tarsan are great sources of recreation for the family; the harbor also offers rental kayaks and paddle boats, and has glass bottom boat tours. While you are here you should visit Sea Lab in Redondo Beach. It was founded by local residents twin brothers Bill and Bob Meistrell, lovers of oceanic life and inventors of the wetsuit! Redondo Beach is an amazing ecological area, featuring the Redondo Canyon, one of the deepest spots of the ocean, and located just off the coast at Redondo Beach, making it a star destination for snorkeling and deep sea diving. Redondo Beach was also the home of one of the largest inland salt marshes in North America... the current wildlife is a tribute to that feature. Redondo was also home of the first ever lifeguard training established by George Freeth in 1908 (he singlehandedly saved over 20 stranded Japanese sailors in a ship wreck off the coast of Redondo Beach by swimming out and bringing each person back one by one.) Currently, and in contrast to northern neighbors Hermosa and Manhattan, Redondo Beach is a family oriented, casual community on the ocean. The Hollywood Riviera section of Redondo is located in a quiet, hilltop forest overlooking the ocean. Whether you enjoy biking, jogging, kite sailing, stand up paddle boarding, surfing, or just lying on the beach and building sand castles, Redondo has it all!

This little cottage was basic, located in a wonderful resort area close to the beach, as described, and suited our budget perfectly!
Perfect little beach house for our family!
We loved it! The house was exactly as described: cozy, cute, close enough to walk to the beach, and even features a jogging path and hot tub. Bunk beds were perfect for the kids, and the toys were a bonus. We will stay again!
Great location, adequate accommodation.
Great location near family. Adequate accommodation. Clean, okay beds, kitchen. Allowed pet, but no outdoors place for dog. Internet TV, but no news or sports channels
This is a clean, comfortable, and incredibly low priced house in a 'great location.'
There is a fenced in yard for pets, we are not sure why you thought differently.
TV is smart TV as explained. You can get any channel you desire. We are so sorry you were disappointed and yet never said a word.
Enjoyed our time.
Only issue is the cell reception is very poor.
We had some seasonal ant problem, but didn't bother us.
Kenn, we always want guests to be comfortable and we take all feedback very seriously. We have addressed the ant issue. Most cell service does work; we apologize that yours did not.
Nice home in my old neighborhood. House even had a Jacuzzi that was nice to sit in after a long day. 2 minute drive to beach. you could walk but the walk up is a little tiring. Close to shops and many places to eat. Hiking trails right behind house. had a great time.
Location was amazing!
We had a great time! Kids had alot of fun! Everything you need is right there! We will defiantly be back!
hang gliding, surfing, hiking, running on the wood chip trail down to the ocean
