We have been planning the trip for a year and the final result of this house and location was exactly what we wanted!!! Literally 20 steps from the beach, 4 parking spots even though we only used 2 because we rented a 15 passenger van and it fit perfectly! Right next door is Mickeys Deli (sandwhiches, pizza, convenient store), which was perfect for a quick snack/lunch. It's .06 miles from Hermosa Pier with great shopping and restaurants. Also close to several gyms, grocery stores, and other fun local spots! And I must say it was the BEST price for all other locations I spent hours searching for to fit all 12 of us.
The house deck was the best part of the home. There isn't AC in the house so at times got a little hot, but they do supply fans. The manager was easy to get a hold of and replied to any texts I sent ASAP.
We went to the Dodgers game, Rose Bowl, Disneyland, and the longest we were in the car for was 40 mins so I'd say it's a great central location for all the "hot spots" of the LA area!
We would definetly rent this home again!!
