About This Listing
This is an adorable restored Studio Cottage in South Redondo is only 1 block from beach and located on same grounds as the Burnham Beach Retreat and Burnham Beach Cottages.
Within the cottage you'll find a full size bed, lots of built-in cabinets, a secretary's desk, fully equipped kitchen with built in breakfast nook, bathroom with clawfoot tub and both a front and backyard where you can BBQ and enjoy the evening sunsets. You will be provided with fresh towels & bed linens, bubble-bath & bath salts so as to enjoy the tub to the fullest.
This sleepy beach community has everything you could hope for. The property is just steps to the ocean and pier with a large array of restaurants, cozy coffee shops, bars. The boardwalk or "strand" sprawls from Palos Verdes to Santa Monica...you can enjoy surfing, swimming, volleyball, walking, running, skating, biking, hiking and all the activities that come to mind when you think of Southern California. You'll feel like you're a world away from any large city but Hollywood, Disneyland, and all the other sites you'll wish to venture to are easily accessible!
Main one is no interior smoking...there's a front and rear yard where you can enjoy a smoke if that's your thing. Other than that just general/common respect for the place.
I'm confused as to all the positive comments about this place. The pictures make the cottage look a lot nicer than it was... was looking forward to hanging out in the backyard but the table and chairs were dirty. While the home was technically clean, everything was worn down and felt dirty. For example, the disgusting fridge (hard to look at the rusty left side while trying to eat breakfast). Then again, after walking barefoot in the home, the bottom of my feet were dirty.
The walls were paper thin so we barely slept because you could hear everything outside. Omar was pleasant to deal with and appeared to be a helpful host but failed to follow up as he said he would regarding the wifi password not working - I had to follow up myself.
Found out the hard way that Redondo Beach commonly is in fog for the month of June.
I feel ripped off that I spent so much on staying here.
This beach cottage is spot on! I arrived early and Omar kindly reached out to the cleaning person to make sure they would be able to let me into the cottage to drop off my luggage.
Perfect location for a single person to stay. I didn't rent a car but used a shuttle service from LAX. On a cloudy day, I rented a beach cruiser and biked my way to Venice Beach. What a great ride!
Redondo Pier is just an 8 minute walk, the restaurants at the pier are good --lots of seafood and Redondo beach was beautiful and clean.
The cottage was clean, the bed was super comfortable and all beach amenities were available -- suntan lotion, beach chairs, beach towels, a cooler and for cool nights a heater that looked like a fireplace.
This was my first time to Redondo beach and I would stay in Omar's place again. It was a wonderful 5 days.
It was so cute and cozy. It has everything we need it. The neighbourhood was friendly and safe. Redondo Beach was a good choice to make some day trip around los angeles. Omar was helpful and really nice! Thank you!
Omar's bungalow was exactly as advertised, and he was a great host! The location is great; it's only two blocks from the Redondo Pier and beach, and there are lots of restaurants in walking distance. The bungalow itself has everything you need for a few days or a longer stay. The bed is especially comfortable, which my wife and I really appreciated. Omar was very easy to work with and even had a great book with information about the local area to help us find places to eat. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would happily stay in Omar's place again.
Although we didn't meet Omar, our experience at the cottage was amazing. We had a message on arrival at LAX with directions and information on how to get in. When we arrived to the place was clean and inviting and there was even a little food in the fridge and the cuboards.
Omar was great! He let us check in early. The house was fantastic. As described. Clean. Cute. Great backyard to hang out in. Front yard equally good! Really close to the beach. Would definitely stay again!!!
TIP: Rent a car from Stefan on RelayRides. $25 a day and he's great!
About the Host, Omar
I'm a laid back person who loves to be active and everything that the beach life offers. I've both travelled to and lived in a number of places all over the world but am born and raised in Los Angeles and have quite a bit of insight on where to go and what to do.
