This 1600 square foot townhouse has everything for the perfect beach vacation. Three well-appointed bedrooms and four bathrooms provide all the comforts of home just steps from the sand and within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of trendy and laid-back Hermosa Beach. Beautiful chef's kitchen, FIOS TV, Internet and phone, Jacuzzi bathtub in Master Bedroom, wet bar, and private roofdeck with BBQ are among the amenities of this beautiful and unique property. Hermosa Beach is a great hub for an LA vacation, with Disneyland, the Getty museum, Malibu, and Hollywood all around an hour away, and Santa Barbara and San Diego around 2.5 hours. Located steps away from world-class beaches. Please note that in order to maximize ocean views the property has been built up and includes three full flights of stairs.
I'm a 4th-generation Southern Californian who grew up in and still live in the immediate area. My family and I know Hermosa Beach and Southern California intimately and it is my pleasure to help out in any way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Jeff purchased this townhome in 2012
Though small (only 1.4 square miles), Hermosa Beach offers many different personalities and experiences, depending on where you stay. Our property is located on a small, quiet street where you can experience the tranquility of a quiet beach town (you can usually hear the waves breaking at night), but is still within walking distance of all the hip trendy restaurants and nightlife opportunities for when it's time to go out. The private roof deck with BBQ is a great place to relax and take in the beautiful ocean view.
We take pride in our home and have decorated it in understated yet elegant furnishings such as the comfy leather sofa and antique travel posters throughout. We want you to feel as comfortable and at home in the property as we do. One note: there are four levels to this home (including the roof deck), so please be advised that you might get a great calves workout from the stairs!
Casa Serena at Hermosa Beach is a top-class vacation rental in a quaint neighborhood with an ocean view. Our family of four (including two young boys) spent 7 great nights at this amazing property enjoying the weather and making memories.
Because the property was recently built in 2012, it is full of modern amenities including: multiple large flat screen televisions, stainless kitchen appliances, rain shower, massive whirlpool tub, a dumbwaiter and much more. We spent most of our “indoor time” in the open family room and kitchen. The amazing rooftop deck and two other decks were also heavily used by our family. A small feature that was also helpful for us were the numerous light switch dimmers. Having small kids, it was nice to be able to leave the hallway light on very low at night.
Another big plus of this property is the proximity to the beach, a coffee shop and a small local grocery story. The beach is an easy 1.5 block walk away. We enjoyed several family walks to the Hermosa Pier area (about ¾ mile walk). Also, parking is very easy with a two-car garage and small carport.
The only note of awareness is the large amount of steps in the house. Because most properties in this area are built vertical for ocean views, many of the houses come equipped with a plethora of steps. Unless you have medical problems, the steps are no issue.
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Casa Serena and look forward to returning again someday.
We had a terrific experience with this rental. Jeff is a 5 star property manager. The house was spotless and everything works. We walked into the house the first night and immediately felt at home. All the conveniences were there : wifi,cable, beach chairs, microwave, keurig, etc., etc. Jeff made it known that if we had any questions or needs, just call or text. His response was quick the one time we needed him.
The overall accommodations were excellent with 3 1/2 bathrooms for all 3 bedrooms. We felt it was like staying at 4-5 star hotel. The walk to Hermosa Beach was about a 5 minutes. Jeff the property Mgr. was very receptive
to any questions, which made our stay very pleasant. Customer service was excellent. I would definitely return while visiting CA. This rental surely gets a 5 star rating.
When I first found this property I thought it was too good to be true. You know what your instincts say about this. When we arrived we were blown away by an impeccable property with outstanding facilities and a 3 minute walk to the Hermosa Beach.
There were a number of restaurants, takeaways and supermarkets within easy reach so we never wanted for anything during our stay.
The beach was exceptional, the water was great and sand was vast and uncrowded. We spent 4-5 hours a day at the beach but could have spent longer. This was the untimate relaxation after previous weeks in Disney and Vegas (but I would go back to just stay at this place). Casa Serena had a great pricing point and excellent location. I would recommend it to anyone.
Two things to be aware of 1- the property is on 3 floors with an additional sun desk and BBQ. 2- You can also see a small power plant in the neighbouring area when driving to the property but this was never really in view during our stay. Neither of these points were an issue for my family.
My family stay in Florida every year but this year we travelled to the west coast and our stay at this property was peaceful, uncomplicated and every we wanted from this part of our holiday. The property owner was excellent when we needed some help (Thank you for this!!). As said I will go back to the west coast and definately go back to this property.
Had a wonderful time and the accommodations could not have been any better. Jeff, our rental manager, was amazing. I hope to return again. Prefect!!!!
From the UK and travelled around California/Nevada and Casa Serena was our last stop. It was perfect for our needs, 2 adults and 3 teenage daughters. Like other reviews say it is exactly how the photos and description portray and even nicer, it is beautifully clean and towels, bedding etc are plentiful. The girls loved the surround sound TV and the multiple channels. Beach just a couple of mins walk but then a five minute walk to the sea through gorgeous white pure sand. There is a liquor store just around the corner but we used Ralphs just a short drive away.
We used this as a base to travel to Beverley Hills/ Universal and Disney and all easily accessible form Hermosa and drove up the coast a few times. There is a couple of restaurants nearby in Redonto and would recommend the Fish Grill at the marina. Unfortunately there aren't any shops nearby to walk to but we hired a car anyway.
The fireworks on 4th July were great to watch from the rooftop and we used the BBQ regularly.
I taken utility equipment, ie toilet/kitchen rolls, dishwasher tablets, foil, clingfilm, shampoo/conditioner, soap etc but everything was already provided.
Was extremely pleased with my choice.
Had to contact Jeff a couple of times but promptly sorted and helped out with any problems.
