Beautiful Strand home listed for the first time for rent. This home was built in 1927 and has been privately owned and maintained to the standards of the owner. The home sits on the strand in north Hermosa Beach and is equidistant from both Manhattan and Hermosa Beach downtown areas. The master bedroom, with a king size bed, is located on the second floor and overlooks the beach. The downstairs guest bedroom has a queen size bed and a bath. The upstairs has a room with two bunk beds and a separate room with a bed and a lower trundle bed as well. This house is perfect for a family of six to eight. The home has an outside shower and a private spa in a secluded area in back. There is a garage parking for one vehicle and room for bikes. There is also a parking pass for on-street parking. There is wireless internet access, tv and dvd . The incredible view is to be enjoyed! This is the perfect 'quintessential beach house', beautifully maintained, and waiting for a family.
Well appointed home. We were family of 4, with 2 grown sons. We loved using the bikes in the garage and our mini-van fit just fine. Umbrella in garage and extra plastic table and chairs in closet, out the farm-style kitchen door-made dining on the patio beach-side great. No closet in the master (but there are built in cabinets for folded clothes, nor curtains, so used the portable screen in the room to cordon off a little dressing area and hang my clothes thereon, as was a bit too shy to dress in open view of the windows surrounding. Fabulous view from these windows, complete with binoculars to look for dolphins. Did not use outside jacuzzi. Great having washer/dryer-as the males all came down with flu, but were very comfortable in our separate rooms and I kept things ship shape! We loved having coffee in the morning on the strand side patio, to watch the area come to life. Nice built in grille too! The owner was very responsive to our needs and even sent a little box of chocolate covered strawberries as a surprise. Enjoyed walking down to the pier, where there are lots of restaurants and shops. We also bought light up frisbees and the boys had a blast at night on the beach with these. The extra guest pass allowed our relatives to pick up grandma and drive over daily and park with easier access for her. Proximity to many stores and entertainment venues, but a quiet spot to relax and watch the life go by. Great being able to use the local land line, as cell phone coverage was spotty. We will rent here again!
We are a family of four with two kids under 4. This was a wonderful rental for our family. The location was perfection. The house had plenty of room for our family and was relatively quiet. The house was fairly clean. The beach had a swing set on the beach just to the left of the house. The kids enjoyed that. The kitchen had upgraded appliance and granite counter tops. We were pleasantly surprised, as the kitchen pictures did not show much detail. The house did not have a formal table to sit and eat for four but the counter was suitable for meals. (We brought a booster with a belt to secure our 2 year old). Our guests were able to use the two-person table, which could be converted to a dining table with the addition of two more chairs (not provided). The kitchen was moderately equipped but had enough to handle most meals. The stairs leading up to the second floor were not kid friendly. They are steep and curve up. We brought a very sturdy baby gate with us (it did not fit at the base of the stairs due to the molding on the stairs but did at the top of the second floor) but purchased another cheep one to keep the kids clear of the stairs. Once secure this was not an issue at all. Someone with mobility issues may find it challenging to navigate the stairs on a daily basis. The bedrooms upstairs were bigger than expected and fit our family well. They would easily accommodate a much bigger family. The smaller of the two had a nice size trundle bed and the bigger bedroom had two larger size twin beds with plenty of floor space to spare. Linens were clean and comfortable. These two bedrooms had an adjoining bathroom. The master bedroom was beautiful and comfortable. The master has no shades on any of the windows and had no door for privacy. We thought this may be an issue but it was easily forgotten after we woke to the amazing view! The best part of our day was waking to ocean! One morning we even saw a school of dolphins swim by. The Garage accommodated one large car. We have a sizable SUV and parked with no issues. Although we did not use any of the bikes in the garage they could easily accommodate a large family with kids. We got the chance to fly the kite in the garage one day that was fun! You certainly pay for location with this house and feel the weekly price is worth what you get. Especially given the extra main floor bedroom. We would certainly consider renting this house again!
I rented this house for a few days in Nov 2008. The
house is very clean, tastefully decorated, and has a
great view of the ocean. This is not your typical
"rental" property. The person that handled the
rental was very cooperative, and couldn't have been
easier to work with. It was great to not have a TV,
but I see that they have added one, so you have
choice. Would definitely rent this house again.
