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 the lighthouse is one mile away.
Enjoy one of the quietest and most beautiful places 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!
It is amazingly quiet here most nights.
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 and shops 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 far more spread out than most cities, and public transportation here is poor by comparison to other destinations like New York City. All beaches are many miles from downtown, and attractions like Disneyland and other places can be far distances. Seeing everything here always 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.
Thank you David for everything. My wife and 4 years old boy enjoyed a lot over there. It was really quiet place and I could sleep very well. The room was clean and he has everything we needed such as a clean towel and powerful dryer. I would recommend this place more than anywhere. Actually, it was my first time to use Air BnB.
デービッドさん、どうもありがとうございます。 ほんとにお世話になりました。 4歳の息子が迷惑をかけたと思いますが快く引き受けていただき感謝しております。 周りの景色も最高でアパートにはプールやヤシの木がありとてもリラックスでき快適に過ごせます。 またお世話になりたいと思います。
开始这次旅行之前，我从未想过我可以住在一间如此好的公寓里。公寓非常靠近大海，你可以随时到海边散步，景色、空气都非常非常好。同时，房主非常好，我们可以在房子里煮晚餐，这次晚餐是我们在美国旅行那么久吃到最好的一餐（煮了点中国菜）。I have no idea that I can stay in a such amazing house!!The apartment is close to the ocean and the view is very (website hidden) the same time,David is very nice.During the trip,I can cook dinner in the room,and that dinner is the best I have ever had in US!!
David was a great host. He also gave us a quick tour of all the nice places to see as soon as we got there. The apartment is in a great location for a quiet relaxing holiday with great views and walks along sea cliffs. The apartment is super clean and well maintained. We really enjoyed it and will be back. This was my first AirBNB experience and I think David nailed it!
David is warm heartful and easy-going, it won't take long time to make true friend with him. The apartment is situated near one of the most valuable bay in the world, very unique from other natural views in CA, I'm proud of having this experience.
Davids Apartment was amazing! He was not there but we were in perfect contact over the phone. The place was super nice and clean, had probably one of the best sea side locations in LA and a pool/jakuzi.There are also supermarkets in the area so we could cook. And for that price, no more words needed.I just wish I could have stayed longer.
David was a wonderful host, checked in regularly and made sure that our stay was comfortable and that we were happy. Great location, great views, great host. There's little else I could ask for
What a place! Out on the edge of America, looking west! We've stayed in some nice places, but this one tops them. Gorgeous location on the Palos Verdes Peninsula and the most gracious host we have ever had at an Airbnb stay. David could not have been more accommodating and made us feel like we were family. Great room, cleaner than home, and quiet as the proverbial church mice.
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.
