Interaction with Guests
We are very fortunate to live in a beautiful area with great weather. We enjoy showing people why we love Hermosa Beach. Our home is your home. If it's cocktail night and you're around we'd love you to join us.
We're in a safe, upscale residential neighborhood, so you'll have the most fun if you walk to downtown our use our beach cruisers.
Your room is a short, wonderful stroll to the pier and a wide variety of night life - pubs, clubs, and cafes.
A bike path skirts the beach for miles in either direction.
If you want to explore Los Angeles and surrounding area and don’t drive, get around very well with the peer-to-peer ride sharing apps Lyft and Uber and it often can be similar in cost to renting a car, but car rental is always best. Enterprise Car Rentals just a few blocks away. Or sign up for Car2Go Electric Smart Cars by the hour or by the day. Hey it’s L.A. and the car is king.
Come and enjoy a perfect California vacation!

My experience at Steve and Monica's home was great! Everything was clean and having breakfast provided was very nice. Their home is beautiful and is just a couple of blocks from Hermosa Beach. I will definitely be staying here again.
Monica and Steve (and their cute little dogs) were great hosts! The room was bright and the bed was comfortable. They provide everything you need for the beach and the bathroom was nicely appointed-no need to pack any of the essentials. We enjoyed our getaway and would definitely stay with them again and recommend them to friends.
Monica and Steve were amazing hosts; we unfortunately got in later than expected the first night d/t airline delays. They left the keys for us and were very understanding. The room and neighborhood were beautiful and we were so smitten with their two dogs! These dogs are incredibly well behaved. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, or nicer hosts. Everything was taken care of- including things for the beach, which was really helpful. We will absolutely be going back :)
Second time we stayed with Steve & Monica and we can't recommend them enough! We hade such a great time staying at their house in Hermosa. Nice and clean room and bath, back patio, small fridge in the room, coffee machine… perfect! The included breakfast is a perfect start to your day and their lovely dogs will make sure you're in a good mood all the time :)
Monica and Steve were very hospitable. They were accommodating and provided us with information only locals would know. Additionally, the bikes and breakfasts were great. We wouldn't hesitate to book with them again!
We hadden een heel mooie tijd bij Steve en Monica. De kamer is precies zoals beschreven, met prima bedden en een privé zitje buiten. We kregen een parkeerkaart zodat we de auto konden parkeren, en mochten hun twee fietsen gebruiken. Daar hebben we mooie fietstochten langs het strand mee gemaakt.
What a delight! Steve and Monica keep a beautiful home. Such fun! The room was spotless and ultra comfortable- there was a coffee machine in our room, which we used with pleasure every morning of our stay. The comfortable backyard gave us the privacy and relaxation we needed, and it was so nice having breakfast at the house each morning. We also loved using their his and hers beach cruisers- we didn't even need to rent a car! Hospitality, location and amenities get an A++.
