About Miriam Litman
My husband and I live in the main house with our two lovely parrots. We are very quiet and private people, and not intrusive. My husband works at a university and I work from home. We like to hike, power walk, novice astronomers, and I love to crochet.
Why Miriam Litman chose West Torrance
We picked this property because is in a great neighborhood so close to Redondo, Manhattan, and Hermosa beach. The school district here is superb. The beach area is a more laid back and casual environment, so it fits our personalities, plus the location is perfect! You can do so much around this area from going to a mall to driving 5 minutes to go to the beach to driving 15 minutes and going hiking right on the beach in Palos Verdes Estates. We have an abundance of choices of restaurants and bars to go to within a 2 mile radius. Weather is the best too, not too hot and not too cold.
What makes this Studio unique
Private entrance to a Studio apartment so we may never see each other. We are close to beach, restaurants and bars in a very popular location in Southern California. There is a beautiful private patio in between the main house and the cottage that you are more than welcome to use.

We enjoyed our weekend visit very much. Easy parking and ideal location. Safe, clean and very accommodating to our needs. We will return:)
Thank you for a pleasant experience.
We loved the place was super comfortable And convenient we were able to come and go as if it was our home for the time of our stay we definitely would recommend and stay again
When life gives you lemons, this cottage is the lemonade!
My vacation seemed doomed when my daughter became ill and every day I worried about her and her newborn, and yet my 3 week visit was full of happiness and relaxation due in no small part to the gracious nurturing of my hosts and their delightful accommodations. Miriam kept everything clean and comfortable so that my return late at night was to a cozy respite from the day. Everything I needed was there from snacks to toiletries to hot showers and soft welcoming bedding. It's only a 5 minute walk to Starbucks through a lovely neighborhood. I will definitely go back soon!
Had a wonderful stay in this little cozy, comfortable cottage. Felt like our own little home. Close to beaches, shopping and some really great breweries/restaurants. Cottage had all the amenities you need. Hope to visit again someday. Thank you again!
This was a charming cottage that met our needs perfectly. Part of the beauty of the place is that although the owners live there, the unit is far enough away from the main house. We never saw the owners, but knew they were there if we needed them. The cottage is located in a residential area, with plenty of street parking. We were able to park close. There were three steps up from the side walk to the gate that leads to a fenced yard. There is a fence all around the property. We heard a few sirens, and faint barking dogs, but for the most part it was nice and quiet. We spent three nights. We like to attend a local festival held every year in late September. One of our friends who knows the area recommended a Peruvian restaurant located about a 10 minute drive from this property. The restaurant is called El Pollo Inka. It is well known for its chicken dishes, but it has beef and seafood as well. As I vegetarian, there are typically few options, but I enjoyed the fried rice. The dessert of pumpkin deep fried donuts with a honey sauce was marvelous. We went to the beach and there was a small fee (maybe $3) at a toll booth type building where one enters the parking area. There were picnic tables and restrooms. They even had outdoor showers with a foot wash/lower faucet. Although we did not use them, it was great that there were two beach chairs and an umbrella. We utilized the wi-fi that was available and had no problems. The pod coffee maker was stellar and much appreciated!
