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!

This was our second time here and we absolutely love the experience with Steve & Monica. The property itself has everything we would need and then some- in addition to the private entrance, coffee maker, mini fridge, TV, wifi, comfortable bed, clean towels, etc., we get access to beach gear and bikes which is a huge benefit, especially since they're so close to the beach itself! Some great restaurants, shops, delis/markets in walking distance is a great convenience. The hosts are extremely friendly and welcoming but are also very respectful of our privacy. We will be coming back as often as we can! Do yourself a favor and stay here!
Mello vibe...certainly kind and hospitable hosts. .great location. .close to everything. ..great communication all the way up to arrival
Nice place... Good location and excelent hosts! We took the bike and it was very nice! Great view in hermosa beach!
Monica and Steve are great, very welcoming and accommodating. They offer extra amenities to make you comfortable..beach towels, umbrella and chairs and bikes. The room and bath are nice and clean, and have privacy for comfort. Beautiful home with great location for enjoying Hermosa Beach!
Our second time around and there is a reason why we come back: great location, cosy room and fantastic hosts!
Monica does everything to make our stay as pleasant as possible and her breakfast is very much a bonus on top of it all. Oh, and I love the house! The private patio makes it feel like an apartment and we loved sitting out there in the evenings!
I am so happy to have found you guys!
Next year, we will order way earlier!
More than a place to stay, a home.
Our experience at Monica and steve's house was beyond expectations. Since the moment we arrived they were comprehensive with our arrival time, they waited for us and showed us the home and introduced us to Luca and Pepe (two well behaved and cute dogs). The house is beautiful, clean and have a great decor, steve's moving arts were sooo preatty! The room & bathroom had everything we needed, including a beach bag with towels and sunscreen! The 2 bikes were the highlight, the beach is just 2 blocks away from the house, the bikes were the easy way to get to know the beaches. They both were very helpful with great tips about the area. Monica's breakfast each morning was a great way to start the day, we ate breakfast at the private patio that the room have. They also supplied us with all the essentials in the kitchen to cook our eggs. They never had a no for an answer and they always received us home with a smile. The day we left Monica had to pick Steve at the airport and she even gave us ride to LAX (with a tour included, lol). We will definitely choose them again in our next trip to California. :) They are the most lovely couple we had met!
Monica and Steve have a beautiful home w a peaceful and serene private patio area that I was in love with. They're exceptional host that are very friendly, welcoming and accommodating! I enjoyed my time there and look forward to a future stay!
