Welcome to the beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula! Located on the only true shoreline cliffs in LA, this is one of Southern California's most picturesque locations. Terranea Resort is immediately across the street, and a working lighthouse is nearby.
Enjoy one of the quietest and most beautiful locations in LA!
Sleeping arrangements are on a queen-size bed in a private room that locks from the inside only. A queen-size air mattress is also available and will fit into the same room, if requested. The bedroom has its own separate heating control.
You are welcome to freely use the kitchen and dining room, as well as a spacious living room that has a fireplace and balcony with view of the ocean. This is your home away from home, so feel free to use the entire place as if you were at home!
You will have access to secluded beaches and sea caves via cliff-side trails, as well as spectacular panoramic ocean views, a heated pool, Jacuzzi, two tanning decks, gas BBQ facilities, a tennis court, and an exercise room with machines, weights, and TVs. You can also freely access the Terranea Resort restaurants, shops, and spa next door, just as if you had paid to stay there!
Interaction with Guests
I am glad to help you with directions and advice on what to see and do in Los Angeles, and will do whatever I can to make your stay in LA totally amazing!
This is a non-smoking and non-drinking home with no pets, although pets are welcome here on short stays. Anywhere from one to three family members or guests may also be here when you arrive and/or throughout your stay.
LAX is about 17.3 miles away, downtown Los Angeles is about 32 miles, and Disneyland is about 40 miles. Attractions within about 10 miles include amazing tide pools, mountainside hiking trails, daily ferries to Catalina Island, Ports O'Call shops and restaurants, the Port of Los Angeles, World Cruise Center, a working lighthouse at Point Vicente, a whale watching and interpretive center, South Coast Botanic Gardens, the Korean Bell of Friendship and Pavilion, the Marine Mammal Care Center and Center for Marine Studies at Fort MacArthur, Portuguese Bend, and Terranea Resort.
You can sometimes be the only person on the beach at the tide pools at nearby Abalone Cove. Arrive before 9:00 a.m., and the footprints may be only from you and the sea birds! While there, it is possible to see urchins, anemones, starfish, crab, sea lions, octopus, and more. But much of the sea life is seen best at low tide, which changes on a daily basis, so be sure to check for low tide online before going. The diversity of sea life is amazing, and no guest ever regrets making time to go there. See photos in my Airbnb gallery. Parking is $5.00, but it is also close enough to walk.
Golf is available next door at The Links at Terranea, or 3.5 miles down the road at Trump National Golf Course. The Promenade on the Peninsula 50-store mall is also nearby, which includes the Ice Chalet skating rink.
Los Angeles is much more spread out than most cities, and public transportation here is poor when compared to other destinations like New York City. All LA beaches are a fair distance from downtown, and attractions like Disneyland and other places can be far from each other. Seeing everything here generally involves covering a lot of ground - it is just the nature of LA! For this reason, it is recommended that guests rent a car when staying here or anywhere in the Los Angeles area.
Other Things to Note
Continental breakfast is available (usually like cereal or toast, with oranges and/or yogurt, for example), and you are welcome to prepare breakfast from whatever is here at the time. For other meals, feel free to also mix your food with whatever is here at the time.
Laundry facilities are available on-site.
* Drinking and smoking are not allowed in the home, and smoking is strictly prohibited on the balcony because it drifts into neighboring apartments, but is possible in other outdoor areas. Partying doesn't really work well here because of how quiet it is outside at night. The courtyard becomes nearly completely silent most nights, so any noise can be heard easily by neighbors. Thanks for helping maintain this atmosphere, especially after 10:00 p.m. You will sleep well and be next to the ocean above sea cliffs.
* You may find evenings boring here if you do not have planned activities. This generally isn't a problem for guests who want to relax or who only need a place to sleep, but it is best to either have activities planned or to see being here in the evenings as time to unwind and relax in a quiet neighborhood by the beach. The pool and Jacuzzi are open from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. The exercise room is open 24 hours.
This was my first AirBnb experience and I can only hope any others will be like this one. Beautiful place with a lot to do. It made a single father of 3 traveling to the area for the first time an easy experience. David was an awesome host with anything that we needed. He provided info for places to visit as well as any amenities we wanted. The pool was great for the kids for the days we wanted to just relax. Walking distance to the beach with beautiful scenery. A+ as a host and the place. Thanks David.
David was an excellent host and had every prepared for us when we arrived. The apartment was in an excellent condition and the location is really amazing with breathtaking views of the ocean. David gave us helpful hints about the area and was very accommodating. Even though he stayed with us in the apartment in his private room, we almost didn't notice him and we had all the space and amenities that we needed. We can absolutely recommend this place.
The location is really beautifull and the room perfect. There was everything I wish for and more. I did not stay long, only 2 days but the appartement feels like a warm welcome. David was unfortunatelly not at home but I could always contact him, no mather what time. Thank you for everything!
I would recommend David’s place to anyone visiting the area. David is a wonderful and accommodating host who will try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The apartment is in a terrific location on the cliffs of Rancho Palos Verdes, a skip away from the beach and immediately adjacent to the Terranea Resort, which is accessible to the general public. David’s complex also provides access to a private pool and hot tub. The stay was everything I had hoped for. Thanks David!
David was a great host for me and my friends. 3 of us stayed with David for a total of 8 nights in his beautiful apartment that sits right on the cliffs of Rancho Palos Verdes. David was very accommodating by providing every essential you may need on any stay. From beach towels to extra toothpaste David really knows how to take care of his guests. The stay felt like a 5 star hotel experience with the use of a pool, hot tub, even gas grills! You're seconds away from the beach and you can even dine at the beautiful resort right next door.
The property is in a very nice community and you'll be sure to see some spectacular views. David took the courtesy to explain to us how to get down to the beach and the way to Abalone Cove which is a quick walk down the road where you can see some interesting sea life.
The bed provided is extremely comfortable that has more than enough room for 2 people. If you also plan on staying with a few others David also provides other sleeping arrangements!
David is an extremely nice guy and very respectful to his guests. He keeps his place very neat and clean which beats many hotels I've stayed in before. Staying with David really makes you feel like you're at your home away from home.
If you're looking for easy going, relaxing, and hassle free, then a stay with David for your travel is guaranteed to be an excellent time!
10\10 David made his best to help ups to get to the place. He was always available. Communication was smooth as silk :) The place is in such a great place, very calm and relaxing. After long days exploring LA its the best place to be!!! David even gave tips what to see, how to drive. All was excellent! We recommend it, and would come back!
10 is 10. David buvo labai puikus seimininkas. Padejo atrasti vista be problemu. Visada buvo pasiekiamas telefonu, zinutemis. Apartamento vieta nuostabioje vietoje. Labai ramu ir puiki vieta atsipalaidavimui ir poilsiui po ilgos dieno narsant LA. David nurode indomiu vietu plius padejo su direkcijomis pro kur vaziuoti ir kaip isvengti LA kamsciu. Nuostabi vieta!
David was very accommodating and helpful. The room was plenty comfortable for three guests. The amenities, including pool, hot tub, and access to the cliff side Terranea Resort made the complex perfect for our trip.
Traveling is a passion, especially to new places and anywhere with beaches! I always love to hear stories from fellow travelers who stay here. Life has been a wonderful, interesting ride - and Airbnb has made it so much more so!
Friends would probably say that I am easy to talk to, and fairly ambitious and motivated. I love to hike, jet ski on the ocean when I can, and keep in touch with friends. You will feel most comfortable with me if you like others who are people-oriented and enjoy positive conversation.
