Roger Moler purchased this cottage in 1976
We are located in a quiet family oriented neighborhood. From our location you will have a short walk to the beach, restaurants, and sporting activities. When we remodeled this long term rental to a vacation property we spared no expense to make this a luxury cottage.
Beach access, wonderful views of the ocean.
Roger and Annie were very cordial while hosting us. We really enjoyed being able to park and just walk everywhere we wanted to go. Hermosa Beach is a very nice community to visit.
My family and I (husband and toddler) came for a week and stayed at Roger and Annie's cottage. The place is beautiful, neat and clean. It is well equipped and conveniently located- about a two minute walk to The Strand and the beautiful beach! Roger and Annie are great hosts and are very helpful! We had a lovely time and will definitely return!
My husband and I stayed for five very relaxing days at Hermosa Beach. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The owners were very nice to answer all of our questions and make sure we had everything we needed. Restaurants were within walking distance, so we did not rent a car. There are many fun places to explore from this property. It was a wonderful vacation.
We stayed for a week at this wonderful cottage and wish it could have been longer. The description is 100% accurate but doesn't capture just how warm & welcoming the whole place is or how much it feels like 'home'. Everywhere is spotlessly clean, super comfortable and the furnishings are of very high quality with every bit of equipment you need to self-cater easily. Loads of space for clothes in the walk in closet, a super huge shower, towels etc and great TV & Internet access. I won't even try to describe the bed and amazing bedding as only sleeping in it can do it justice....it is to die for and if I could have bought the same covers and got them home in my luggage I would have done !!!!
The cottage is literally minutes from the beautiful beach and shops of Hermosa and walking the Strand to Manhattan or Hermosa piers is a lovely stroll. It's a great area, clean and safe with lovely individual shops and restaurants as well as Von's for grocery shopping if you're cooking yourself. We had a car and the parking space outside of the cottage was brilliant.
It's easy to get to all sorts of other beaches, LA itself and the airport, so locality is perfect.
Annie & Roger live right next door and make you so welcome in all sorts of little ways from the wine & cheese when we arrived to lending us a beach umbrella and bikes (Annie ...we won't forget your yummy Granola & muffins !) that help you enjoy your holiday even more. We have particular experience of their kindness as unfortunately I had a cycle accident and was taken to hospital, ending up with both arms in splints ! Annie took my husband to the hospital, they both came to check I was ok and then offered for us to stay on at the cottage. Really don't know what we'd have done without them at a time when we were both in shock and I was in pain. 'Thanks' just doesn't cover how much we appreciated their help and kindness.
I always do plenty of research before we go on holiday, read all the reviews and try and choose the best places to stay but travelling all the way from the UK you can never be absolutely sure till you get there....this cottage excelled our every expectation and as soon as we walked through the door we knew that. I really hope we get to go back one day, especially to see Annie & Roger again.
I hope this review conveys just how great the cottage is. I'd recommend it without reservation so don't hesitate to book it...... You'll never find anywhere better and will love staying in Hermosa.
My husband and I spent two glorious months in this most wonderful cottage. We felt like we were home again as we spent a month here in 2014 as well. The description is exactly what we found and more. Annie and Roger are like family to us and we couldn't wait to see them again. The weather was perfect every day, we walked to the beach most days and walked to restaurants, shops, the Hermosa Pier and more every day. The cottage is perfect for two people as we wanted for nothing. We are already looking forward to next year and another stay in a most lovely cottage in paradise!
My husband and I spent our first anniversary at Roger and Annie's wonderful cottage by the ocean and will never forget the experience! The cottage surpassed our expectations in every single way! It was extremely clean, well-appointed with many luxury touches, and in a great location. No detail has been overlooked to make guests feel welcomed and comfortable. We walked to the beach in less than two minutes, and to restaurants as well. We loved waking up and having coffee looking out at the ocean from the expansive windows, and we especially appreciated our cordial, welcoming and warm hosts who were always available to answer questions. It was like we were Hermosa residents for the week, we felt so comfortable and pampered. And the sunsets were beyond compare. We highly recommend this property! And we can't wait to return! Thank you, Roger and Annie for a most memorable and perfect vacation in our favorite spot in California!
