Are you looking for a fantastic holiday to spend at the beach? Our house is a perfect landing spot located in Hermosa Beach, California. Just steps from the main drag "Pier Avenue" , two blocks to the main beach area, and an easy walk to major super markets- this place is heaven! Hermosa Beach is known for its beaches, surfing, volleyball, bike rides and lively night scene. It is an active town with tons of families, singles, and retirees all enjoying life at the beach. Hermosa Beach sits 2 miles north of Redondo Beach and 2 miles south of Manhattan Beach.
The house is brand new completed in early 2012. It is a 4 level house and includes a roof top deck. Ocean views are fantastic from the third level and roof top. The house is a modern contemporary style home with African mahogany on the outside and mahogany accenting the inside stairs, floors, and ceilings. A three story wall of terrazzo that brings the organic aspects of the beach inside. Glass railings and doors along with a glass bathroom add to the character of the home. The 3rd level kitchen and hang out area has a unique martini apple green eating center island bar/table that seats 5 comfortably. A rooftop deck with fireplace make an evening at the beach fun and relaxing as you watch the sunsets.
We spent a great deal of thought and time trying to build this house an environmentally friendly house and energy efficient. All of the appliances are energy efficient and stainless steel, endless water heater, and Kohler bath fixtures are water efficient.
The decor is mid century modern and used from the 50's, 60's, and early 70's. Milo Baughman, Verner Panton, Herman Miller, George Nelson, B&B Italia, Case Study, DWR, are some of the MCM names that decorate/furnish this fun beach house. The furnishings are very fun but designer and expensive and because of that we do vet our guests as we need guests who live a conscientious life-style as we choose to keep it furnished in ths designer style. **If children will be staying we will remove some of the designer pieces as they cost more than the deposit allows and we ask that the white wool sofa be covered with a throw- we will discuss this before accepting the rental of course.
The home is set up with two bedrooms, both with queen beds on the 2nd level. In the lower hang out room there is a twin day bed. There are 3.5 bathrooms including a jet jacuzzi tub and steam shower. We feel the house is best suited for no more than 3 or 4 guests. And we will not accept any situation where guests outnumber beds.
House has 3 HD TVs and Blu Ray, steam shower, jacuzzi jet tub, cable, outdoor fireplace, internet, weekly cleaning. The location is a "10". The beach is a "10".
We will make room for two cars to park which is really the bonus of the location since parking at the beach is a real commodity! Again, all restaurants, bars, coffee, ice cream parlors, nail salons, bike rentals, surf board rentals, supermarkets, beach are ALL within short distances from 1/2 a block to 4 blocks. The house is near enough to the main Pier strip of bars and restaurants but far enough to avoid the noise. Manhattan Beach is approximately 2 miles north to Manhattan Beach Pier and Redondo Beach Pier is approximately 2 miles south. the 405 Freeway is about a 20-30 minute surface street commute. Major big retail shopping can be found in Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, and El Segundo.
Taxi ride to/from LAX are approximately $40 and 25 minutes. There is public transportation down the street and bus schedules can be obtained at the library two blocks from the house.
This is our primary home and a very special place so please make sure you tell us about yourself and who would be staying in our home as we want to make sure we all have a lovely experience. Thank you for looking and for your inquiry and enjoy Hermosa Beach!
4 Floors which includes a roof top deck. There are two bedrooms with closets. The 3rd BR is a twin daybed in a small TV hang out room has a closet as well and its own bathroom.
Interaction with Guests
Typically we will meet the guest and get them settled and then we will leave with contact by phone or email. We leave the house set up so the guest feels like it is their home for the entire stay- we remove all personal affects from the inside of the home and leave all amenities needed for an enjoyable stay.
Walk to everything! groceries, restaurants, beach, yoga, fitness, spas, etc. Park car and vacation! The location is a 10 out of 10. The walk to the main beach is 5 minutes. Sometimes people want to be right on the beach but in Hermosa, if you want to sleep, we recommend staying away from the Strand and away from the main Pier as the beach and bar scene can be a bit crazy. Our location is perfect as it is just 1/2 block to Pier Ave and 2 blocks to the main "party" area but far enough away from the "party" to not hear it. Construction has been completed on the block so no construction summer 2015 on our block!!!
There is local transport but a car is better if trying to explore Disney, Universal Studios, Hollywood, etc. For local things, no car needed.
