Interaction with Guests
I am happy to interact as much or as little as guests prefer. I am an open book, but diligently respect zones of privacy. It's entirely the guests' choice!
Hermosa Beach is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in California. Restaurants, nightclubs, the beach, playgrounds, volleyball nets. It's all there!
Your feet are your friend, but taxis abound, and bike rental is easy. Public transit is around the corner, and the train is a short drive away.
Other Things to Note
Don't underestimate the beauty of having reserved parking near the beach!
I live green, and hope you do, too! Please recycle.
Definitely no smoking or drugs, and no loud noise after 11 PM.
If you use any appliances, BBQ, etc., just leave them as you found them, please.
Please be clean and considerate. At the end of the day, it's all about communication.
My stay with Todd was excellent. The house was everything he describes and then some. Awesome views, awesome location, plenty to do and see nearby. Todd made us feel very welcome and was extremely helpful throughout our trip. Thanks Todd!
Todd was a gracious host and made me feel very welcome. The description is pretty accurate and the location was awesome—a few blocks from the beach. Todd made himself available for any questions I may have had, but also respected my privacy. I really enjoyed my stay. I have no negative criticisms...I would stay there again.
Todd hat uns gleich bei unserer Ankunft am Flughafen abgeholt und uns sein schönes Haus gezeigt. Es ist ein tolles geräumiges Haus und man hat sein eigenes kleines Reich mit einem großen Schlafzimmer, einem begehbaren Schrank einem eigenen großem Bad und eigener Terrasse. Todd half uns immer bei anliegenden Fragen was öffentliche Verkehrsmittel oder Besichtigungstouren anging. Todd war immer hilfsbereit und zurückhaltend sodass man wenn man mochte immer mit ihm reden konnte und wenn man seine Ruhe braucht einfach in seine Räumlichkeiten gehen konnte. Wir haben uns bei Todd sehr wohl gefühlt er war ein perfekter Gastgeber. Die Nachbarschaft ist ebenfalls sehr zu empfehlen, meiner Meinung nach die familiärste und schönste dieser Gegend. Hermosa Beach ist auf jeden Fall sehr gemütlich und zum Sportlern sehr gut geeignet. Es gibt lauter nette Cafés und tolle Geschäfte rundherum. Nach Hollywood braucht man mit den öffentlichen Bussen um die 4 Stunden, nach Los Angeles Ca 2 Stunden, Disneyland 3 Stunden. Es ist Ansich alles mit Bussen zu erreichen, mit einem gemieteten Auto wäre man aber auf alle Fälle schneller am Ziel.
This home is exactly as described and pictured. Great location: close to beach, restaurants, sights etc. House is super clean and comfortable, great bed! Todd is a warm, polite and caring host who made us feel entirely at home. Wonderful 3 night stay - we'll be back. Thanks Todd!!!
Todd's house was exactly as described. Excellent! The location is just great. I travelled alone and as my first BnB experience i Amore than happy. Todd was helpful and more than happy to have guests in his house. Great guy. Great time had.
Todd was a great host, everything went very smooth. The house is great and best of all only a 3 minute walk to the nicest beach. Would definitely stay again!
The owner Todd, was a very nice hoist. Very easy going and helpful. The room was a good size with a big closet. Plus, the beach is a short walk away. The location was perfect for my needs: the airport and restaurants near by.
About the Host, Todd
Hello everyone and thank you for checking out my listing! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via Airbnb.
I am a former Hollywood talent agent now working on my own. I used to work for Club Med, so I am very familiar with hospitality, and have discovered a certain knack for it. More importantly, I really like it! When you arrive, I will leave you alone unless you want to hear some stories from my past, which include a sailing trip across the Atlantic Ocean, working in Bermuda, Mexico and the Caribbean, a brother formerly in the Secret Service, another brother who is a dancing lawyer, and the list goes on... You can't beat this location, either!
I also have two great - but old - dogs. They sleep a lot but are very sweet. Hermosa Beach is a great walking town, with Jay Leno's Comedy & Magic Club just down the street, as well as numerous restaurants and cafes. Of course, having the beach a block away is the best of all! But if you do have a car, I have a place to park, which is very important here, especially in the summer. Whatever your situation, I'm always happy to give you the inside scoop on where to go and what to see.
Come on out and see the west coast!
