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.
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.
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!).
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!
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.
I have been renting homes on the Strand in Hermosa for a few years now and this property has everything you would need and then some. Hands down the most private and comfortable home I've rented on the Strand! Tom the owner was very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. You can't go wrong renting this quant beach home. Thanks Tom for an enjoyable experience.
We had an amazing vacation in this lovely home. Our family of four, daughters 12 & 14, had a great time. Tom provided all we needed, bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrella... It was better that expected. Rode bikes to Manhattan Beach everyday and even saw a few actors.. (Daughters were thrilled) Will definetly stay here again! Thanks Tom..
