With breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean from Palos Verdes to Catalina Island to Malibu, this cozy beach retreat is yours to enjoy for a great family getaway, a romantic rendezvous or corporate/executive rental.

Just relax and rejuvenate every day as you watch sailboats drift by, and dolphins play in the surf. Enjoy long walks along the beach and swim and play in the Pacific Ocean steps out your front door. Take a yoga class on the beach while watching and listening to the sound of the calming ocean waves, or take an easy bike ride to Manhattan Beach or Marina del Rey. Watch the sunset after a perfect day at the beach or walk down the street to enjoy the local restaurants in the little sleepy beach town of Playa del Rey, known for its solitude and small town feel.

Close to the many attractions in Los Angeles, enjoy a day of exploring and sightseeing. Los Angeles Intl airport is just 10 minutes away. You will be only 10 minutes to Marina del Rey or Manhattan Beach, 20 minutes to Santa Monica or the Venice Boardwalk, 30 minutes to Hollywood, downtown L.A. and Malibu, 45 minutes to Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm or Universal Studios, and a 90 minute ferry ride to Catalina Island.

Our recently remodeled 2 bedroom, 2 bath quaint beach retreat has all the amenities you need to settle right in and feel right at home. With a total of 1000 sq ft, this lower floor unit can comfortably accommodate a large family (or 2 small families!) or 2 or 3 couples. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with dishes and all the cookware you need to prepare a family meal or a gourmet feast with bar seating for 3, bistro table for 6, or dine al fresco on the tropical lanai.

Enjoy morning coffee or a glass of wine at sunset from the comfortable tropical lanai filled with tiki furniture, tiki bar, heat lamp, succulent garden and a BBQ. After a long, peaceful day at the beach, relax in front of the 2 flat screen TV's, one in the living room (55' with DVD, CD, surround sound and Ipod dock) and one in the master bedroom (42'). Sleep peacefully to the sound of the ocean waves.

When it's time to settle in for the evening, choose from the master bedroom suite, with a queen bed, full size sofa sleeper, and private bathroom, or the tropical room with a queen bed.

There is an additional full size sofa sleeper in the living room (both sofa sleepers have upgraded slumber air mattress system). Both bedrooms have new mattresses, 4'' mattress toppers and high quality thread count linens plus ipod clock radios.

There is an ample supply of fluffy bath and beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards and off street parking for 1 car for your convenience. Internet, Wi-Fi and unlimited local and long distance calling are also available.

Whether you are interested in a family getaway with the kids or a romantic quiet rendezvous at the beach, we look forward to hearing from you so that we may share our little piece of paradise with you.

While we love families/gatherings, we do not allow large groups or parties:)

About Sherry Kennedy

After spending the last 16 years in Colorado raising our two girls, we have come 'back to the beach' to enjoy the Southern California lifestyle and now we are sharing our newly remodeled beach cottage for others to enjoy. We hope you have as many great memories in our oceanfront paradise as we have!

You will be blown away!

  • 5 of 5
So we had a very last minute project in LA that my husband had to fly down for a couple days. We (my 4 year old and 4 week old) decided we wanted to come to. We made it a quiet family vacation. For some miracle the downstairs unit was available for those days. Sherry made the process easy and super fast. (This is probably the most kind and awesome vacation rental owner I have dealt with)
Staying right on the beach is, lets just say, worth every penny. Especially with little kids. Our 4 year old was able to play in the sand RIGHT in front of me, while the newborn napped INSIDE. It was truly a blessing. No dragging beach stuff with you, or having to walk far back if you forgot something etc.
This place is charming and did I mention CLEAN!!! The home itself is older but boy these owners keep it spotless! Thank you Steve and Sherry! We will be back!

A Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I had a fantastic week at the beach, relaxing and reading and taking long walks. This was the perfect setting for that. The pictures of this darling condo just don't capture the wonderful atmosphere. Steve and Sherry were great. If you're looking for a little more personal attention, suggestions for where to eat, etc., they are fantastic hosts. The condo is perfectly stocked with everything you could possibly need. All that was left to do was just relax and enjoy. Sherry's decorating is wonderful. Almost every day I would notice something new. The lanai is so gorgeous that I was inspired to come home and re-create that kind of atmosphere on my deck. Just like the pictures, word don't suffice. Everything was practically perfect, and I'm anxious to return. Thank you, Steve and Sherry!

California Dreamin...

  • 5 of 5
If you want to understand why so many people come to California, this is a home that tells you why. Hospitable owners, beach decor galore, the most laid back beach there is in Los Angeles and just enough restaurants, market, local coffee shop and wine bar all within walking distance not too far you can't wear your flip-flops to. The location of this place definitely has one of the best small local feel to it.

Again, if you're looking to know what it's like to live the CA dream, you have to stay here. And while your at it, make new friends with the owners and call this place your home away from home.

My parents really loved staying here and they just really loved the feel and decor of the place. We sat outside to watch the sunset and have dinner and with the kitchen so well stocked, the items I had forgotten to bring were already in the cabinets - just like home. The beds were very comfy and just every where you turn, there is something whimsical about the place.

This truly is a place that is as good as it gets to the live the CA beach lifestyle!

A True Beach House Experience

  • 3 of 5
Our family of four (two teens) spent an August week at this Trolleyway beach home.
The home was as described by the VRBO website and photos.

The furnishings, decor and friendly owners close at hand combine to create an experience more like being a guest at their home vs. renting a house.

Sitting right on the beach, this home offers an authentic beach house experience - with all the associated pluses and minuses. Plus: incredible views; proximity to beach; indoor and outdoor living space; proximity to LAX. Minus: no escape from sand, humidity, and close-by neighbors (friendly and welcoming as they all were!); proximity to LAX.

A great location for those who truly love the beach!

Fantastic beach house

  • 4 of 5
Believe the pictures and the description! This beach house is everything it is advertised to be and is just as the pictures depict. The lanai is outstanding and is impeccably furnished and decorated as is the rest of the house. The owners supplied all types of beach toys, chairs, coolers, umbrella......anything you need for fun on the immaculate beach. Thank you, Sherry and Steve, for your excellent customer service!
