Overview

Hermosa Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6, two fireplaces

We are three houses off the water. Located in a quiet, residential neighborhood. We are a HOUSE, not a condo or apartment and we have a double-car garage because parking at the beach is premium. We are smack-dab-in-the-middle of Downtown Hermosa Beach and Downtown Manhattan Beach where there are many restaurants and shopping. You can walk everywhere. Five restaurants are within two blocks of our home. Our ocean view is from living/dining area and even the cook gets an ocean view from the kitchen. Remodeled several years ago with new kitchen appliances, refinished hardwood floors and new windows with plantation blinds. Interior repainted in 2013 so our home is always clean and fresh. Our renters always comment about our super-comfortable beds. We have wireless internet and four televisions. Our front yard and our private patio area are great in the morning with the newspaper and your coffee, or in the evening watching the sunset. Upon request: cribs, strollers, high chairs. No pets and no smokers

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed the house - it was spacious, well kept, and a great location!!

We have already referred the house to several of our son's parents who visit LA. Hopefully they will be in contact with you as they make future plans. I will also be in touch next time we visit the boys

Great vacation rental for the whole family

  • 5 of 5
We came out to visit my uncle who lives in the Los Angeles area and had such a wonderful time. My uncle is in a wheelchair so we wanted to make sure he would be able to come visit us and see the amazing views of the ocean. He said this was by far the best place we have stayed at. He loved looking at the ocean and seeing the sail boats from the kitchen table. Janine was so amazing she measured all the doors to make sure there was enough room for his chair to get through. She met us at the house even when we were delayed at the car rental place. Everything went so smoothly the whole week. Everything was provided for us and we didn't need anything but our suitcases and groceries. Everything listed in the description was right on. My parents had there own room with a tv, my husband and I had the other bedroom and the kids were in the 3rd bedroom that has a tv and DVD player it was like their own little playroom with toys.

The location was perfect my girls and I ages 6 and 4 could walk three houses down to the beach and then if we needed to use the bathroom it was a short walk back to the house. The beach was awesome almost like having your own private beach not crowded at all.

While we were there they had the junior USA sand volleyball tournament going on. The kids had a great time watching the girls play on the sand volleyball courts near the pier. We also walked down to hermosa beach pier and ate at some of the restaurants down there. We also visited the sea lab at manhattan beach pier which is just up the beach from the house. The kids can't wAit to go back next year.

While we were there the Stanley cup playoffs were going on which my husband loved being a hockey fan. We found out that many of the players from the LA kings visit a local bar down the street from the house called north end. Even though the playoffs were going on it was such a quiet neighborhood that I didn't have to worry about much noise from people walking home from watching the games.

The house has a two car garage we were able to park both cars in which was great bc the street parking can get crowded on the weekends and you need a parking pass if you want to park on the street without getting a ticket.

I would highly recommend this house anyone visiting the area. We can't wait to go back.

A Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was such a charming beach house. The location was very very close to the beach. The beds were comfortable and the house was just SOOO clean. The kitchen had everything we needed. Loved looking out at the boats and the ocean while eating out meals in the dining room. The boys and I had a great time, they mostly surfed and I surfed through all the shops in both Hermosa and Manhattan downtown areas! Both quaint downtown shopping areas were just a short 10-15 minute walk from the house along the oceanfront walk they call The Stand. We ate several of the local restaurants Janine had suggested and had just the best time here. We will definitely be back.

Amazing Beach Cottage 'Gem'

Amazing Beach Cottage 'Gem'
  • 5 of 5
What an amazing mini vacation we had. The house was really clean and decorated in a traditional/beach theme. We really enjoyed meals in the dining room with the ocean view and outside on the patio. It was a very short walk to downtown where there was a fair going on for Labor Day it was fun to shop the local products, and had our pick for lunch, from many great restaurants. We walked to Martha’s for breakfast which the owner suggested, great food!. Thanks for the suggestion! And at the end of our days we slept super well on the comfy beds. Our hardwood floor refinisher kicked us out of our own home and forced us to find this ‘gem’ at the beach. What a nostalgic feel Hermosa Beach has. We will definitely be coming back and staying here again.

Great Family Vacation Site

  • 5 of 5
My wife, my son and his two daughters, and I came out for the Crossfit Games. This house was perfect. Janine was great to work with. The house was very clean and comfortable. It is a short, two minute walk to the beach...very close with easy access. Plenty of beach chairs and assorted beach stuff and a wagon to cart everything my 4 yr old granddaughter wanted to take to the beach! I certainly hope we get a chance to go west again to we can stay here another time. I would certainly recommend this Hermosa Beach jewel to anyone!

Beautiful house, breathtaking location

  • 5 of 5
I would like to extend my highest regards and review of this house and experience in Hermosa Beach!
My wife and I didn't know what to expect and from the minute we met the owner and took a look around, our excitement grew. What a roomie and comfortable house with three spacious bedrooms. Our three children thought it was amazing. This house has everything, I mean everything for a perfect beach experience. It was a very short walk to the beach, and there was parking in the garage for our rental suv. The owner supplied chairs, boogie boards, towels and umbrellas and wagon! for a stress free beach day. We loved this house and hope to return!!
Sincerely, Jeff from Massachusetts

Nice Location, Close to Beach

  • 3 of 5
I'll start by saying we take VRBO reviews very seriously, and believe our obligation is to help future travelers as much as possible while giving the owner credit for positive experiences---but our bias lies with giving the future renters as much information as possible to make the best decisions...it might be a special occasion or the only vacation yo get that year, so it should be right!

PROS
-The property is close to the beach as noted. The owner was very reponsive and setting up the rental agreement was easy, and she accomodated a slightly early arrival nicely. Returned our deposit promptly.
-It is a freestanding unit nicely appointed in the "quaint beach house" decor. Lots of beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, etc. which came in very useful for our 6 year old son and my wifes elderly parents. Small patio next to the garage was nice although not enclosed (if you have small children)
-Very quiet and safe neighborhood. Virtually no street noise at night. Walking distance to Hermosa Beach town
-Parking in a pinch for two cars, and if one plenty of room for bikes, etc. Very nice as street parking is a nightmare in that area.

CONS:
-An astonishing number of signs taped up everywhere admonishing you to do this, not do that, don't break this, etc. Very annoying.
-Had numerous technical problems with the TV/DVD player and internet connectivity. Had to handle the internet problem myself even though I contacted the owner.
-The applainces in the kitchen are outdated (not a bad thing in and of itself) but some were partially broken and required non-intuitive workarounds to function correctly. The disposal did not work at all, which was significant for us as we like to cook and make most of our meals from scratch.
-All of the kitchen utensils and such (pots and pans, silverware, etc.) are old and we would not use several of the skillets/pans as they were cheap, thin metal and the teflon surface compromised.

OBSERVATIONS
The property is really a Cottage (not a "House"). Little acoustic privacy between rooms, and we were sort of "living on top of each other" (One of the "bedrooms" is really a family room with large daybed). Our .02: For the price, the owner should fix the stove, put in a new disposal ($75 at Home Depot, no excuse) and drop a couple hundred dollars in some new pots, pans and utensils. And get rid of the annoying signs---a "renters guide" of 2-3 typed pages would be fine.

Owner's Response: This is the first unhappy review we’ve received in seven years. All our other reviews are ‘5 stars’. We do everything in our power to make our guests' experience as pleasant and memorable as possible. The ‘Pros’ in this review are very true: very close to beach, house nicely furnished, lots of toys and beach gear, 2-car parking, quiet neighborhood, walking distance to town, security returned promptly. I take exception to the "con" comments but rather than attempt to defend what, in my opinion, are spurious claims, I would urge guests visiting my site to read the 34 glowing reviews, many of which are from guests who return year after year.
