About Pam Absher

We are a family of three, all native Californians. Pam grew up in Redondo Beach and is an insurance adjuster and a Girl Scout Leader. Bill is an aerospace engineer and the resident handy man. We are active in our Church. We love to travel and enjoy staying in bed and breakfasts throughout the United States.

Pam Absher purchased this cottage in 1988

Why Pam Absher chose Redondo Beach

Our cottage was our family room prior to remodeling. It provided peace and quiet during the evenings. We love the thought of owning a Bed and Breakfast. We have converted our former family room into an inviting guest cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Our location allows us to live at the beach, yet be close enough to drive to the many offerings in Los Angeles and Orange County, Disneyland/California Adventure, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios, Staples Center, Dodger Stadium, Downtown Los Angeles, Venice, Santa Monica, Hollywood, Long Beach Aquarium, Los Angeles Zoo, and the Getty Center.

Redondo Beach Stay

  • of 5

It was a pleasure staying at Bill and Pam's property. The property offered everything we needed. Pam was an excellent host. If ever in the Redondo Beach area I would differently stay here again. Thank you Pam and Bill.

A fantastic week!

  • 5 of 5

The little cottage was a wonderful base for my week stay, and the bonus was making friends with Pam and Bill who are the perfect hosts. The bed is very comfortable and there's a good fan to drown out any background noise so I heard nothing and slept like a rock! The bathroom is updated and modern with great water pressure, HDTV is perfect with a very good channel selection and WiFi was very fast on my laptop. There's a fridge, microwave, and drip coffee maker--all in perfect operating condition. No stove, but who cooks on vacation anyway? I didn't use the hot tub but it's in a very private area behind the cottage. My cell service is ATT and I had a strong signal everywhere on the property. Street parking is tight so I parked in the church lot directly across the street (100 feet) and was the only car there except for Sunday. I worried about curbing the wheels on my rental so this was a good option. Also they have a great selection of bikes--my favorite is the purple TREK cause it's so pretty and smooth! I walked to the beach once and estimate it's 1/4 mile. Other days I drove--there's plenty of free weekday parking on side streets adjacent to the "main drag" so no need to feed parking meters. The Village area is within 2 miles and is all shops and nice eateries. I ate twice at the LBJ taco stand and it's excellent (Ave B & PCH). I especially liked the beauty of Palos Verdes, but make sure your brakes work! I probably looked at 40 different options before choosing this one and it is definitely the "best bang for your buck"--plus there are no add-ons such as taxes and cleaning fees. You can tell immediately that Pam and Bill love having company stay in their cottage which makes this location even more appealing. I really look forward to a return visit!!

Great hosts and a very comfortable place.

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed there for 2 nights and absolutely loved it. Comfortable, homey and very well equipped located in a quiet, safe setting. Great walks to the beach, hikes in nearby Palos Verdes and proximity to restaurants. This is a great hub for all that So Cal has to offer. Bonus was the Jacuzzi after those hikes in addition to a very powerful shower!

Thank you Pam and Bill and I will be back next time in LA.

Great Stay in the Cottage!

  • of 5

We stayed at Pam and Bill's cottage for 4 nights. The cottage is exactly as advertised and Pam and Bill are excellent hosts. It's in a quiet neighborhood but still only a short walk or bike ride to the beach. We also walked to an area with shops and restaurants as well as the Redondo Beach Pier. Overall, the location was fantastic. Parking was also very easy and convenient. The cottage itself is well maintained and offers nice amenities. The hot tub was wonderful as was the use of the bikes. We highly recommend the cottage and hope to stay there again on our next visit.

Seclusion and Comfort!

  • of 5

What a wonderful stay we at the at The Cottage. The neighborhood was so quiet and yet still pretty close to the beach. The private area in the back with the hot tub is a wonderful perk at this place. We stayed for 10 days and couldn't have been happier. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Pam and Bill!

Gracious & Personable Hosts, Great place

  • 5 of 5

I spent the week of 11/2/2014 in the Los Angeles area for a business trip. I went without a car since a coworker lives in the area. The Cottage is a great place to stay since there are many restaurants/shops are just a short walk/bike ride away in Redondo. The place was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. I haven't slept that good on business travel ever. Pam and Bill made me feel very welcome and gave some good recommendations for local food. Only detractor for me was the condition of the bicycles which I should have verified. If you want something for more than just cruising the strand consider renting from one of the local shops. Machines were in need of tune up and not very efficient for road travel. That said I would definitely consider the Cottage if I took my family out that way and will definitely check availability next time in the LA area for business.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Our bikes are intended for riding on the strand at the beach. Due to vehicle traffic in our area, we do not recommend bikes be used as a means of transportation. As far as maintenance, we keep air in the tires, the chains lubed, and the brakes are checked. On check-in we remind our guests we are always available to take care of any issues, big or small.
