Coastal views and a private beach club inspire guests to step back in time.
Don’t miss the opportunity to vacation in one of the most exclusive (and also most down to earth) beaches along the Southern California coast.
Nestled in the hills above this sandy, private beach club is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home that offers a unique beach vacation experience.
This private beach club offers a long sandy beach, with firepits, picnic tables with palm thatched ramadas, playground equipment right on the sand, sand volleyball courts and paddle tennis courts.
Summer beach bbq’s are particularly magical – one often looks around and wonders if they have stepped back in time. Kids can roam free while parents enjoy conversation, a good book, or a cold beverage (alcohol on the beach is legal because it is privately owned). With cloudless days offering a spectacular sunset, beach days turn into beach nights around the firepits, where friends and family enjoy warmer beverages and s’mores.
This mid-century modern beach house itself offers spectacular ocean views from the living room, dining room and kitchen. The extra large patio is perfect for bbq’s, brunch or 5 o’clock cocktails – where guests are often treated to a school of dolphins frolicking in the waves below.
This beach home is well-suited for a romantic getaway, girls weekend retreat, or family vacation. It features two master bedrooms each with a queen bed. The extra large third bedroom hosts three twin beds and a double-sized futon – great for slumber parties of any age.
We were looking for a place near the beach in Rancho Palos Verdes for my 3 year old to play in the sand. Sue's place fit the bill perfectly. The location was great and the house has amazing views of the ocean and Catalina. The house has lots of room to stretch out and for a kid to run around in, which again was perfect for us.
Sue was super accommodating and even offered to pre-buy some groceries because we were coming in late. She responded promptly to any questions we had and really cared that we enjoyed our stay, which we obviously did. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks again Sue for renting to us!
We've never rented a house online and now we are hooked. This home rental was exactly what we expected and more. The pictures were very accurate and so was the description. The moment we walked in and saw the ocean view and the sound of the waves, we were so excited we booked this house. My family of 5 plus one friend stayed here for 8 days during July 2014. The house was clean and stocked with everything we needed for the beach. We had stopped into the Trader Joe's right up the road and picked up supplies. We were also excited to see the Starbucks to get our daily caffeine fix. The gate staff was very friendly. For us, everything was an hour away. We did a tour of L.A., Santa Monica pier, Huntington Beach, Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm. We also treated ourselves to massages at Terrenea Resort, which is 5 mins from the house. We used the awesome grill on the patio for many dinners. Any time we were at the house, we sat out on the patio. We saw many dolphins, so exciting for all of us. Great house and Sue, the owner was very helpful!!
Our family was traveling to the area for a wedding and found this little gem! I can't say enough about the view. We saw dolphins, seals and many different varieties of birds. We also observed whales from the interpretive center just down the street.
We grilled and had family dinners on the patio every night. The kitchen was very well stocked and the grocery store was conveniently located down the street. The sunset was a spectacular sight to see at the end of each meal.
The room setup was ideal for our family. My husband and I stayed close to the kids room and the grandparents had their privacy on the other side of the house. The oversized kid's room was perfect and my daughter was very well occupied with so many games available.
We're the type of family that likes to travel to new places each year. However, we all agreed we would definitely stay here again. It provided the comforts of a home, with an amazingly breathtaking peaceful view!
This was our first time ever using VRBO so we were a little nervous going into it. I must say, the whole experience and the home itself exceeded our expectations. From day one, Sue (the owner) was so easy to work with and very clear with payment, check in and check out instructions. The home is quite charming with an expansive brick deck with incredible views of the water below. We had such a great experience that we will be looking to rent the home again in the future. A fantastic bargain for a family vacation when considering the prices, taxes, and fees at Terranea.
I stayed here with my family for a week while visiting extended family and friends in the LA area. While I find LA to be a little stressful, and the 14 hour days at Disneyland and Universal Studios to be tiring, this property is a remedy to all of that...I couldn't wait to get back to the beach house to relax on the patio and watch the dolphins and surfers. Our family played paddle tennis most days, flew a kite on the beach, had evening cookouts, played on the playground on the private beach and I spent many hours walking along the beach and hiking up to the Trump Golf Course next door (the trail and club house are open to the public). The owner provided all the paddles, kite, cookout tools needed (tablecloth, marshmallow skewers, matches, etc....it is all well organized in a big tupperware that we took down to the beach). It could not have been easier. Also, I so appreciated the casual nature of the rental house...I previously rented a house where the owner had labelled everything with messages like, "Do NOT wipe off YOUR makeup with my towels". This house was the opposite...the welcome book invites you to relax, and have a great time without fussing about unnecessary details. There are even some basic condiments, food items, and laundry supplies made available (coffee, lots of tea, hot cocoa, some s'more fixings, etc.) which a lot of rentals do not provide and it is expensive starting from scratch (although I always try to replace anything I have used a lot out of common courtesy). There is a Trader Joe's and a ton of other markets nearby....everything you would need is close and convenient. The house itself was exactly as described and everything was clean and well-functioning. The owner was incredibly responsive as well (the hot-water heater broke...these things happen....) one day and it was fixed by the time we returned home that same day and we couldn't tell that anyone had even been there...except that we had hot water again :) I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to find some tranquility in an otherwise busy city. I was able to do my daily walk for an hour and found 2 terrific trails nearby, all while watching the surf, the pelicans, the dolphins and surfers enjoy the day. It is a great property for families of all ages (and all generations), although I loved the fact that my 9 and 12 year old were old enough to go explore the beach on their own while I relaxed on the patio. I would absolutely stay here again.
We were looking for a place to have a romantic getaway, and found this wonderful house overlooking the ocean! I recently traveled to St. Lucia and some of the landscape there reminded me of the view from this vacation rental's patio. We actually saw whales while we were eating breakfast on the patio one morning. It's a really peaceful place to stay and I'm looking forward to staying there again. The private community beach is a nice feature!
Situated on the Palos Verdes Peninsula coastline - this location offers unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island.
