beach stay

  • 5 of 5

Our trip here was fantastic! Location is unbelievable- everything is within walking distance and is right on the boardwalk and beach. Patio was wonderful for sitting outside and relaxing. So accommodating - Owners let us use beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, and best of all beach cruiser bikes. We were able to bike all the way past Manhattan Beach to Redondo Beach. The Bachelor Suite was more than what we were expecting- super clean, spacious, and amazing views. Large Kitchen and more than enough room and sleeping areas. Garage was also provided. Owner was extremely accessible and returned text/email/phone calls right away. Cant wait to come back next year!!!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We rented Bill's place for Labor Day, 2013. It is a great place. Great location, great decks (including a rooftop). And Bill was very easy to deal with. My cleaning deposit was promptly refunded, and all of the instructions were right on. We did have a very hot weather weekend and there is no AC. But with the windows and doors opened it cooled off, and we know it was unseasonably hot that weekend.

All in all a great place and I recommend it.

Owner's Response: This Labor Day weekend Friday, was the hottest day of the year! There is no air conditioner in the house since it is very seldom needed. There are windows and doors in the front and the back of the house that let the ocean breeze blow through out the house. There is a forced air heater for the Winter months.

Gave us specific details about the place and what to expect. The house is amazing right on the beach front of THE STRAND you have access to everything including the beach right in front of your porch!

We had a family reunion and decided to rent a beach villa at Hermosa beach, CA. After reviewing several sites we decided to rent this one and proceeded with the paper work. Bill who owns this place was so great in helping us with the payment and deposits. He was very flexible and down to earth and we felt very relaxed about this whole deal. After arrival, we found the house professionally cleaned and in good condition. There was enough towels and blankets to house all 10 of us. The house is beautiful with several exterior decks as well as rooftop for star gazing. We had a wonderful time there and after our return trip we received our deposit back on time. We plan on going back again . We highly recommend this place.

EXCELLENCE on the beach

  • 5 of 5

My stay at this luxurious home on the beach was an absolute delight! The owner is a lovely man, Bill Flaherty, that met me at the door to show me around and make sure I knew where all the amenities were located.

The house was immaculate & clean and the Guest Book answered any questions I might have had that were not addressed by the owner. My favorite was watching the sunset from the living rooms huge picture windows and being able to see my kids play on the beach w/a watchful lifeguard right in front of the house. My family and I also loved that you could walk to the Hermosa Pier Plaza in 10 minutes and have all the coolest restaurants with the best food & drink so handy.

I would highly recommend this beautiful home to all that want a peaceful yet fun vacation from reality.

silicon valley

Great location but...

  • 1 of 5

I travel frequently from silicon valley to visit several friends who live in Hermosa and Redondo. On this trip I decided to book a beach front property to share with 4 friends who were down from Canada. It was a treat for them just getting out of the snow.

Initial impression was not good. Kitchen was full of fruit flies due to a garbage disposal full of old scraps of food. Plus the dishwasher was full of dirty dishes, which required 2 wash cycles to get the crud off. Not exactly off to a good start.

We used the BBQ on the roof, which was filthy and had to be run for some time to clean. The tank was nearly empty and so we had to change the tank. Things were rusted pretty bad and a pain to change in the dark.

For sleeping we had one guy on the small futon chair and one on the couch (sleeping beyond 4 is a stretch).

To top the experience off, the owner accused us of breaking the famous stained glass door in the main entrance! I wasn't asked if we damaged it, but just notified that my deposit was to have the damages subtracted from it! I challenged the accusation and even threatened to dispute the whole charge with my credit card company. The owner finally backed down, but still had the nerve to deduct a cleaning fee.

He could have done the right thing and waived the cleaning fee since we left the property in better shape than we received it...Plus the accusatory nature totally turned me off from renting from vrbo again!

If you decide to rent this property, please photograph everything when you arrive and email yourself and owner to time stamp things....

Owner's Response: I am a very attentive live in owner / manager and I was NEVER notified of any of the above problems during the guests stay. If I had been notified, I would have rectified the the problems immediately. I instruct all guests to call me immediately on my cell phone if anything is broken or there are ANY problems at all. The guests had my cell # which I give to ALL guests. I even talked to them during their stay when they called me to request a late check out time. Why didn't they notify me about any of these problems during their stay? If there were any problems as stated they could have been cleared up immediately and easily with a quick visit by my cleaning crew. Why did the guests wait till after they had left the house and had damaged the stained glass front door (which I did not charge them for) to mention these few small cleaning problems? Shame on you for posting untruths and then being upset because I tried to charge you for the considerable damage you did to my home. The house was left a mess and took my cleaning crew over 5 hours to clean up. Dirty sheets and towels were left on the floors, dirty dishes everywhere and the stained glass front door was left broken. We both know that that door was not broken but in perfect condition (which you agreed) during your stay. I personally found the door damaged on the day they left. No one else had been in the house but you and your party of 4 guy friends for your BOYS weekend. You threatened me with a bad review if I did not refund your security deposit. As a courtesy and good will gesture to you, I refunded your deposit in full as you requested even though the damage you did to the house was in the hundreds of dollars I refunded your security deposit in Full and Did Not charge you a cleaning even though you left the house in a complete mess and the front door broken. Since you were refunded the cleaning fee in FULL as you requested, I don't appreciate you telling LIES about my home to save your security deposit, which was refunded before you wrote this review. Then after the fact writing a negative review since you and your party were obviously the ones that caused ALL the damage. TO ALL FUTURE GUESTS! YOU ARE MY #1 PRIORITY! I take pride in myself and my house. I am here to meet all your expectations and will bend over backwards to make sure that your stay is as enjoyable as possible. I am always available 24/7 for any problems, needs or questions you may have about the house or the surrounding area
