About Jaki Scarcello/ Rebecca Pollack

I am a transplanted Canadian, born in Ireland and 12 years ago I left the winters in Toronto and moved to the beach. There are days when I just can't believe how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful place. My family is still in Toronto so I am often back there, snow or no snow (and I ski) so I decided to share this wonderful beach adventure while I travel elsewhere.

I am an author and I have a home office and an assistant and she will be your concierge.She will work in the garage of the house ( separate entrance) a few days a week and is available for your questions and issues.When she is not at work she is just a phone call away to answer your questions and help you out should you need anything during your stay.

Sharing your home is a big decision but I think this space is too wonderful to keep to ourselves so we invite you to share it and respect it as your own, we know you will love it

Jaki Scarcello/ Rebecca Pollack purchased this house in 1987

Why Jaki Scarcello/ Rebecca Pollack chose Hermosa Beach

Living in Hermosa is like being on vacation all year round. Even when live is stressful, which it can be for everyone, you can always drop it all and go for a walk down to the strand and beach and pier. You can grab a bike and cycle to dinner in the next town over. There is something about the openness of the sea and the sun and the abundant plant life which brings perspective. We are so blessed to live here

What makes this house unique

Our home is lit with California sunshine. A few years ago we replaced all the windows, even expanded some to bring in the wonder of where we live.

When you look through those windows you are treated to the abundance of the California greenery, palms and bamboo and our year round flowers and from some windows on the horizon you can watch the sea.

In the back courtyard of our home, accessible by French doors is our retreat space, a Japanese Koi pond with a waterfall and professional landscaping. You can sit for hours by that pond and watch our Koi swim in the sun. They love to be fed by hand and will beg like puppies if they see you in the swing or hammock chair by the pond.

Our kitchen is our studio…we are foodies and the space is large and functional and contains all the bells and whistles you will need, including an indoor grill to cook up a great meal, while looking out to the sea on the horizon.

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5
Our party of 6 (our family plus 2 friends of our children) spent a wonderful, relaxing week at Hermosa koi House! The house is very spaceful, comfortable with lots of "sitting areas", you can even see a part of the sunset from the living room. The nearby beach is a dream and Hermosa pier a very cool, lively and inexpensive place to chill out , meet nice people or simply watching the volleyball pros or magnificent sunsets. Everything you need is in walking distance , but the street is calm nevertheless.
The house is provided with everything you need for feeling like at home.
Jaki, the owner was always prompt in answering all my questions and so kind , that you really would like to know her in person!
The children really had a lot of fun with the koi.
It was a place hard to leave ,thank you, Jaki.

Perfect Summer Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky enough to find Hermosa Koi to rent for our long weekend and could not have been happier with everything the home had to offer. Located a nice short walk to the beach, the area has so much to offer. We enjoyed the pier area at Hermosa Beach. Renting bikes is an easy and affordable way to see so much of the area with the 17 mile long bike trail that takes you along the coast. The home has everything you could possible need and is in a great location. Check in was a breeze and someone is available if there is ever a problem. The koi fish are very entertaining to feed! Our family and a guest stayed with us and we were very comfortable (4 total). Could not have asked for anything better!

Very nice rental home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property for 3 nights. It was very clean and a great location for sight seeing. The koi pond was a special treat and provided a tranquil outdoor area to relax. All of our needs were met and then some.

Family get-together

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful peaceful time at your beautiful home. It provided a much needed break from the Toronto cold weather for our family of 5. Even though your place is close to all amenities and close to PCH, it was on a quiet street, which we enjoyed. It was also within walking distance to the beach. Everything was as described, and your notes (and Rebecca) were very helpful. We did try out your Mexican restaurant recommendation and enjoyed it. We hope to be back soon.

We had a wonderful vacation in this beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5
It was the little extra details that impressed us. Rebecca, our concierge, was extremely friendly and helpful. She brought fruit and half and half the day we arrived so we could have a relaxing breakfast the next morning.
We enjoyed the cookbook featuring fresh produce and the owners provided a list of farmers’ market locations and times. The guest manual was very useful and included all instruction booklets for appliances. The kitchen had everything needed to prepare a meal, but there are fabulous restaurants and cafés in Hermosa and the surrounding areas.
We would love to return.

I love to think that my guests can enjoy my kitchen and that they use it to share their skill and love with their guests and families.
Welcome back anytime and I promise to update the restaurants as I find more, but only the best!

Hermosa beach
Car: recommended

Hermosa is a great beach community just six miles from LAX. Close to all the big LA attractions( approx 18 miles to LA) but all the sweet laid back atmosphere of a holiday beach town.

Check out directions to my favorite cliff walk along the ocean in our guest book, great picnic spot too.

And here are some fantastic places within easy walking distance:

• THE COMEDY AND MAGIC CLUB (with Jay Leno every Sunday)

• THE HERMOSA BEACH PIER

• NUMEROUS RESTAURANTS, CLUBS AND CAFES

• PLAYGROUNDS AND PARKS

• AND, OF COURSE, THE BEACH!

Great website for info on Hermosa Beach- everything you need to know and what will make you want to come here for sure

Hermosa offers the three S's - Safe- Sunny- Sandy
