Guestbook comments from the owner

This home was terrific for a romantic getaway. We enjoyed the warm atmosphere of 2 fireplaces while looking at the ocean. Restaurants are easily within walking or biking distance and the patio grill is a great private bonus.

We can't wait to return.

A CLASSIC BEACH HOME VACATION

  • 5 of 5

Our first family vacation in California and we stayed at the perfect beach home. Tom and Mary's home is a great place to have as a base to explore all the area has to offer. We walked to dinner on Pier Ave, rode the bikes(that come with the home) up the Strand to lunch in Manhattan Beach. We were all very comfortable in the house. The two bathrooms were what we needed since we were traveling with our 2 teenage daughters. The girls ventured on their own up to the pier many times. It is a very safe neighbourhood. It has a perfect beach town feel. We liked hearing the surf at night from the master bedroom, but closed it early in the morning so we could sleep in. There was a great cross breeze with the windows in both bedrooms open, since it was 90 degrees for a few days. Relaxing with a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening on the deck overlooking the strand and beach was amazing. We wish we did not have to leave. Everything was perfect for the week. Thank you to Tom and Mary for welcoming us.

Very Comfortable House!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 10-day stay at the Strandcastle. Arrangements with Mary and Tom were easy and we enjoyed our visit with Tom at the end of our stay.

The location couldn’t be better. The house is a nice walk to the Pier, but far enough from it that there is no problem with noise. There are a number of nearby restaurants, retail, convenience, grocery and liquor stores, some within easy walking distance. The kitchen has been recently remodeled, has new appliances, and was well equipped for our needs. The main bedroom has a fabulous view of the beach and ocean, and a balcony that overlooks both. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of room in the walk in closet for our clothes. Bedrooms and the two washrooms are upstairs. The lower level consists of the kitchen and family room. The family room has sliding glass doors that open to the beach. There’s nothing between the house and the sandy beach except for the sidewalk/bike path.

We didn’t use the garage as our rental car was too big to fit in it, but had no problem finding parking nearby. To avoid a parking violation, pay attention to the street signs because the roads are swept mid-week.

We used the bikes just about every day. The bike path adjacent to the beach goes for miles, both north and south, and the basket on one bike is great for storing gear. There are also several cafes and restrooms along the path.

Our stay was absolutely relaxing, and we wouldn’t hesitate to come back to this wonderfully located vacation home.

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 2 young adult daughters just spent one week at the Strandcastle. It was fantastic! The location is perfect as it’s right on the beach and a short walk to Pier Avenue, where we ate great meals and rented a surf board. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing Jay Leno at the Comedy Club. Having the bicycles at our disposal meant we went for a ride whenever we wanted (which was every day!). The house is very easy to live in and has wonderful ocean views. Tom and Mary are great and very interested in our feedback. I could go on and on. I didn’t want to leave and would return in a heartbeat.

Carrie and family.

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay at the "Strandcastle"! It felt like our home away from home on the ocean...

The size and accommodations were perfect for my daughter's, husband's and my week stay on Hermosa Beach. We felt so comfortable! (The photos and description of the "Strandcastle" here on VRBO give a very good sense of what you can expect.) Everything we needed was on hand--(and we loved using the bikes!). Favorite parts: listening to ocean waves at night, waking and walking on the beach right outside our front door, close (walking distance) proximity to restaurants, shops, entertainment.

A true vacation...(and Tom and Mary are wonderful hosts--very welcoming, and available as needed. Thank you, Tom and Mary!).

Highly recommend.

My american dream came true!

  • 5 of 5

The STRANDCASTLE is a treasure for those who are lucky enough to stay there for a while. My boyfriend and I have just returned to Germany from a week of luxury by the ocean.

The House is a beautifully decorated, comfortable, a home away from home. Tom and Mary has thought of everything that will please their guests - the comfortable beds and furniture, the bicycles, beach chairs and towels, the fully equipped kitchen and the most amazing thing is! They give every guest that is arriving a bottle of wine and an gorgeous bouquet of flowers!

The views from The Vista are one of its major attractions. The large picture windows provide views out over the sandy beach, the incoming waves and the gorgeous sunsets. The outdoor patio is perfect for relaxing on sunny days and for outside dining. It is hard to leave The STRANDCASTLE even to visit the many attractions of the South Bay area and the city of L. A.

Many, many thanks to Tom and Mary! we just loved the glorious holiday we had here. We are both looking forward to come back to California and Tom and Marys Castle! Thank you so much for everything! We are already planning our return visit!!!

Best wishes from Germany!

Lovely house with an atmosphere!

  • 5 of 5

I have never rented something through VRBO and when I read all the reviews on this house I was skeptical. Can it really be that good? It could, and even better. The house is very nice and equipped with all you need, from the kitchen to the beach. There were bikes, volleyball, games and beach toys. It's right on the beach, but still in a quiet area. Tom was very helpful and gave us good advices about Hermosa and LA. We really felt welcomed and at home. Thank you, Tom and Mary, for a fantastic stay in Hermosa.
