i'm writing this review from the front room of the denison bungalow with the ocean breeze blowing in. this delightful beach house is a perfect get away from wherever you are now! the location is ideal with cabrillo beach and the extraordinary los angeles harbor a short walk away. for those of you that enjoy hiking this is the place! each day i hike to point fermin and along the spectacular pacific coast. many many activities are within walking distance -- shakespeare by the sea in the summer (free) as well as local diners (famous walker's cafe) and attractions like the local marine center, maritime museum and the battleship iowa (both worth the walk). having a car is a good idea if you want to see more of LA and different beaches. Torrance is a few short miles away and is an ideal swimming beach and the drive there is magical with many local areas for hiking right along the coast. if you are a biker this is your place! many many bikers (bicycle and motorcycle) take advantage of the curvy and hilly coastline ride to torrance and hermosa beach (and the delightful coastal stretch called "the strand"). San Pedro is a convenient location to many LA attractions. mine however is the beach!
finally a bit about margie and her wonderful home. the house is a perfect beach getaway...well appointed with all needs taken care of. it is very clean, beautifully update, and yet has the charm of a beach bungalow. margie is an exceptional host--she has provided all of the things you will need for a worry-free vacation. denison street is charming with other well maintained beach homes along this quiet, welcoming, and charming block. She is nearby but in no way intrusive on your privacy.
I look forward to my next vacaton here at Margie's homeaway!
