Lived in Torrance since the 1970's, grew up rollerskating to the beach, but moved to Japan during the 80s and traveled all over Asia, came back to live in Redondo Beach in the 90s. I play beach volleyball every Sunday at Hermosa Beach and enjoy the beach life to the fullest with my husband and 2 young children. I want as many people as possible to experience this friendly beach community and hope to that guests go home feeling like the cottage is their second home.

Eriko Navratil purchased this cottage in 2003

It is on a beautiful historic street with homes from the early 1900's this property is a 1908 authentic craftsman home with original wood floors, claw foot tub and wavy glass windows. It's a charming antique home that is in the most convenient location, with restaurants and supermarkets just one block away. The nearest breakfast diner just 4 homes away is a historic landmark of Redondo Beach called Eat at Joe's. Guests can walk to the beach and pier and it's a short drive to Disneyland, Hollywood and all the famous site seeing places in LA, and just 15-20 minutes from the airport to the north and 15-20 minutes to beautiful golf courses in Palos Verdes to the south.

The cottage is perfect for families with small children, with everything from diaper changer/crib/booster chair and toys and books for little ones, yet once those are put away in the closets, the cottage is a romantic cozy home for couples to snuggle by the fireplace, or for business people to work on the computer. It's so quiet we have writers that come and work on novels, and repeat guests who visit each year for medical reasons because it is so comfortable.

PERFECT GETAWAY!!

  • 5 of 5
We just arrived home and are missing our home away from home, perfect accommodations for 2 adults and 4 children. We walked to the pier, Starbucks, and the diner around the corner. Easy access by foot or drive. We were able to visit with Eriko, Frank and their kids and it made for an even more enjoyable time leaving with new friends. They were always available and more then helpful in anything we needed...even supplying an appliance cord for a perfect movie night.....we had barely left the drive before the kids were asking when we would be coming back!! Hopefully soon...Thanks for a wonderful getaway!!!

GREAT PLACE! VERY COMFORTABLE.

  • 5 of 5
The house was very comfortable, especially with three young children. I did not cook as it was so close to easy places for breakfast and then we'd be out for the rest of the day. Walking distance to Whole Foods was nice for morning coffee. We did have one issue while we there, and the owner was there in a very timely manner and quickly addressed our problem. Would absolutely recommend this property. We could not have been more comfortable with our children while on vacation than we were here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for being so positive and understanding. We really do our best to assure the comfort and safety of all of our guests. We usually replace any broken appliances, fix any problems right away unless we have to order a part, then that will take a few days, but we want your vacation to be hassle free and truly relaxing so you feel at home. We do have repeat guests that do think this is their home and the kids go to "their room" and that's how we'd like everyone to feel. So thank you again for sharing your kind review and you know you can call this cottage your home too now :)

Sincerely,
Eriko

VERY GOOD CHOICE AND REASONABLE PRICE TO VISIT LA

  • 5 of 5
We spent 4 nights in the cottage, and were happy of our choice.
The cottage is nice, rather well equipped (open all doors: you will find useful stuff: baby-chairs, toys, even some supplies).
You are 1 block from a Whole Foods market, open till 10pm.
You can take a highway to LA in less than 10 minutes drive.
The landlord is very helpful and takes care of his guests.
The price is reasonable for the area.
The cottage has 2 bedrooms, and each bedroom has its own bathroom. You have additional beds in the living room. We were 6 people (my parents, my husband and our 2 children), and it was comfortable for everyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your 5 star review! We are so sorry you lost your son's teddy bear, that's heartbreaking :( We hope he finds another bear that can take his place. We wished you would have told us about the bear before you left, you could have taken home any of the bears or stuffed animals there.
We are having a terrible heat wave that will not cool down till Monday, some cities inland hit record highs today! Everyone is trying to escape the heat by going to the beach, malls or bars to watch the Olympics. I thought of you in Houston and how it must be like this all the time for you, I can see how you would like the cooler beach cities here, and glad you didn't have to experience this! It's 81 in the house and my poor renters in there now are having a hard time with the heat. We had to put a fan in the window, the AC is not cutting it when it's this hot, but at least it cools down at night. I'm worried about our lawn and plants too, we've never had plants dry out like this either, this has been a difficult summer for us. We did have our plumber come look at the water pressure and he is fixing it as soon as the current guests check-out so hopefully the plants survive this scorching heat.
We are very relieved and happy to hear that you had a comfortable stay. We love the summer but actually looking forward to the crisp fall weather.
Thank you again for taking your time to review our cottage, you put a great big smile on our faces :) We hope your son is now doing OK without his bear.
Enjoy the rest of summer, we hope you can visit again some day.

Sincerely,
Frank and Eriko

PERFECT STAY FOR WEDDING

  • 5 of 5
During my wedding some family members stayed in this lovely cottage. It turned out to be a perfect place for a relaxing week prior to my wedding in the Hermosa Beach area.

If you need a place to accomodate family members this place is perfect! We had a nice kitchen with all amenities to enjoy home cooked meals. The living room was a great space to complete work on 150 favors. Visitors enjoyed South Bay shopping and sight seeing, including the pier.

If you are planning a wedding in Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach or Palos Verdes this is a perfect location to house people. Since there were last minute tasks with my florist and caterer, it was great to be so close to take care of those last minute details.

And for any brides to be, one of the closets has a very high closet bar- a perfect place to safely hang and protect your wedding gown. My make up artist was able to use the pool table area to work on my bridesmaids and my hair and make-up; it had great natural light.

The bedrooms are comfortable and beautifully furnished; it was a much nicer than a sterile hotel environment.

We also manage to bake cupcakes for my wedding using the amazing old fashioned stove-baked everything perfectly. Eriko was very accomodating and even brought over some cupcake pans.

Thanks for the great stay!! Hope some other brides to be can enjoy a special week in this place or use this for out of town guest prior to their special day!

Owner's Response: Congratulations again!! I'm in awe that you baked all the cupcakes in the antique oven, that is such a personal and special touch to your wedding. I saw your bridesmaids getting their make-up done and they were so beautiful, you must have some amazing wedding photos.
We are all thrilled that this worked out so perfect for you all, thank you for choosing our cottage and trusting us for such an important event! We know how much brides put into the details of their big day, it has to be PERFECT, so we're relieved it was stress free and enjoyable for you. And thank you for taking the time to write this review, we know how busy it is after a wedding with all the changes of names/address etc. We wish you and your husband and families all the best!!

INVITING HOME - GREAT FOR YOUNG FAMILIES!

  • 5 of 5
This cute little cottage is perfect for a family trip to enjoy LA's beautiful beaches and Disneyland. Just a few minutes away from Redondo Beach and the pier and a short 35-45 minute drive to Disney. Redondo is the perfect vacation town in LA. It isnt as crowded as some of the other areas and offers lots of great restaurants and amenities. We stayed in this house with our 3 children- all 4 and under- and had a truly stress-free vacation. The house has everything you would need for little ones and is very comfortable- no white furniture to worry about! The owners are extremely helpful- they were able to pop in and turn off the coffee maker when I realized I'd left it on the morning we left for our day at Disney. We will definitely be back next summer.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking your time and posting your review. There's nothing more rewarding than a simple thank you from our guests, and knowing that our cottage brought smiles to more people :)
Traveling with kids can be really tiring and we do our best to provide a safe, clean, practical and easy to clean home. We are glad you noticed and appreciated these things, because it's little things that make life easier. We don't drink coffee so we didn't even know about the automatic shut off, we will replace the coffee machine with one that has the that feature, so that was good, now we know!! We would love to have you back in the summer, there are early evening summer concerts at the pier and on the sand in Hermosa Beach that get packed with families with kids because it's free and the kids jump around and have a blast while the adults sit and relax in the sun. The 4th of July fireworks are also at the pier, you can walk to where they shoot them off :)
We look forward to seeing you all again!

Cal Beach Cottage is located in South Redondo Beach just minutes from the middle of Redondo Pier. A wide sand beach starts below the bluffs of Palos Verdes in the south (after Torrance Beach) and carries north to the Redondo Pier. A paved path, called The Strand runs from Torrance through South Redondo, north to Santa Monica. A typical day on this path will see thousands of people on foot, bicycle, skateboard, roller-blade, wheelchair and stroller enjoying the sun and surf. The continuous path is broken only by the massive Redondo Beach King Harbor Marina and Pier complex, where it veers away from water and onto dedicated lanes of surface streets for about a mile before again turning to the ocean in Hermosa Beach. Continuing north from Manhattan Beach, this path stretches well into Marina Del Rey and beyond with few breaks.

Our cottage is 20 minutes South of LAX Airport and 45 minutes to Disneyland by car. But the best thing is you can walk to stores, restaurants, bars and pier/beach!

Other Activities: Surfing, fishing, sailing, whale watching, beach volleyball, golf, horseback riding...

Golf: Palos Verdes is just a 20 minute drive away, there are many golf courses in this area.

Terranea Resort Golf Course

Trump National Golf Course

Los Verdes Golf Course

Ski: The local mountains are 2-3 hours away, depending on traffic... Bear Summit, Snow Valley are great for families. You can be at the beach surfing or playing volleyball and be skiing or snowboarding the next day!
