I have 3x delightfully restored beach cottages in South Redondo a block from the beach-located on the same grounds as the other beach cottages (BBC2 & BBC3).
The Burnham Beach Cottage(s) was built at the turn of the century originally as a B&B.
We are a unique property so please feel free to email me with any questions or requests.
Simply put……a B&B experience with the privacy & independence of a vacation rental…...
This cottage comprises of 1 bedroom, living room with comfy queen-size sofa/futon bed, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with clawfoot tub/shower and grounds where you can BBQ, relax around the fit-pits or just taking in the evening sunsets on your porch. You will be provided with fresh flowers, ironed bed linens, bath & beach towels, wi-fi, TV,DVD, iron & ironing-board, bubble-bath & bath salts so as to enjoy the claw-foot tub to the fullest.
Please note the cottage is ideal for 2 but can accommodate 4.
Enjoy the ocean & views within minutes from the cottage. Walk,stroll,jog or ride the coastline path that starts here in Redondo and goes all the way to Malibu; ...easily engage in surfing, swimming, volleyball, walking, running, skating, biking, hiking....there's heaps to do in these beach cities & the list continues....art/food/music festivals, outdoor movies in the parks/on the beach, international volleyball tournaments to watch, or if you would rather just relax in our gardens or on the beach and do nothing... you can do that too...
Varied selection of restaurants/cafes are on hand.
We are a quintessential SoCal beach town,close to LA without being in the hectic rush of LA. All is easily accessible by freeways, public transportation, sightseeing tours pick-up at local hotel.
Enjoy LA in a beach oasis- it makes coming to LA quite a different experience...

I particularly love restoring older properties so when I came across the Burnham House & Cottages with all it's historic history it was impelling to want to restore and bring back to life all the workmanship so often found in these older homes.... It certainly is most rewarding now to sit back and have others enjoy what has been re-created. Being so close to the beach is also most delightful and certainly well enjoyed. With my years of running Bed & Breakfast Inns & my enjoyment to meet people from all walks of live it provided to be a perfect marriage. I love that I have a historic landmark that is only 2 blocks to the beach and that I have provided such an enjoyable & peaceful environment for anyone that wants to indulge. There are great spacious grounds with little cottages sprinkled amongst the grounds where you can snuggle up on a big garden wicker chair and read a book, a snooze in the hammock or an evening around the fire-pit snipping fine wine and eating a pork chop.... I love taking a long walk in the morning along the beach and watching the surfers & dolphins mingle & the whales migrating in March/April. ***The sunsets are amazing and truly lovely to enjoy...very relaxing***.

"Arrive as strangers and leave like friends" This saying is so true in describing our visit with Mike and Wendy. Check the other reviews and my wife and I endorse all of the positive comments. Burnham Beach Cottage was a real treat for us and we especially enjoyed the spaciousness and the clawfoot tub. It was wonderful to be only a block away from Redondo Beach and its many attractions and morning walks. If you're lucky Mike will make you one of his famous lattes. Mike and Wendy are accomplished and experienced hosts that will provide you with a wealth of insights and information for exploring the local area and Southern California. Hopefully we can return someday.
We really enjoyed our week at Burnham Beach Cottages. It was cosy and decoration was colourful. The garden area was lovely with potted flowers, there where garden chairs 2 fire pits, and an area to bar-be-cue. It was in walking distance to the beach, harbor and many restaurants close by to choose from.
The manager Lynn was extremely friendly and helpful. We will be returning one day in the near future.
Our Second stay at BBC and as good as the first time around. We really do feel part of the family and I have no doubt that Rosie and I will be back again
This is our second time staying at the Burnham Cottages. The cottages are decorated in a beachy theme with flowers in little cases everywhere. It's a mini house with everything you would need for an extended stay: a comfortable bed, nice living room, kitchen, bathroom and front porch. The grounds are beautiful with different sitting areas to enjoy a book or gather with friends. It's within walking distance to the beach and restaurants. Plus, Wendy is awesome!!
A bicycle was made available for trips to the beach. I especially enjoyed the french press coffee pot. Additional towels, upon request, were left. Numerous friends and family visited me without incident at the cottage since I had formerly lived in Southern California. The cottage was quaint, cute, and comfortable. However, my only caveat is that during September I had to fight off mosquitoes because I wanted the ocean breeze and there were no window screens or ceiling fans. Also, I missed the convenience of having a microwave since many meals were at various restaurants nearby and I always had leftovers.
Our stay was great at this cottage. There was plenty of parking which is a rarity at beach places. You do have to make sure you park appropriatley to avoid street cleaning... but parking a bit far & getting exercise is never a bad thing. I loved the convenience of usage of bikes. You can easily ride to Hollywood Riviera (shops/resturants), Redondo pier, and the great strand that starts at Redondo and continues to Santa Monica Beach (for the serious cyclist!). Hosts were great, even letting me borrow a reading light. The only tricky issue was the TV which was so sophisticated, no one could figure it out.. but I would imagine the hosts have figured that out by now... besides with the great weather, one should not be indoors watching TV anyway !! Thanks Wendy.. great place, love the touches like fresh flowers, plenty of bathroom space, large kitchen garbage, & oh yes, the sharp kitchen knives (little things that matter to me !)
Bike path from Redondo Beach to Santa Monica and even Malibu if you are so ambitious!
Full/1/2 day sails from RB Marina-walking distance from cottage.
Whale Watching in March/April.
Farmer's Market every Thursday at the RB pier- a block away.
Redondo Beach Pier a block away- Also all within walking distance tide pools, Library. Seaside Lagoon. Wilderness Park.
