We have bikes available for your use to ride along the strand to Hermosa and Manhattan Beach. Riviera Village is less than 1 mile away.

About Pam Absher

We are a family of three, all native Californians. Pam grew up in Redondo Beach and is an insurance adjuster. Bill is an aerospace engineer and the resident handy man. We are active in our Church. We love to travel and enjoy staying in bed and breakfasts throughout the United States.

Pam Absher purchased this cottage in 1988

Why Pam Absher chose Redondo Beach

Our cottage was our family room prior to remodeling. It provided peace and quiet during the evenings. We love the thought of owning a Bed and Breakfast. We have converted our former family room into an inviting guest cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Our location allows us to live at the beach, yet be close enough to drive to the many offerings in Los Angeles and Orange County, Disneyland/California Adventure, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios, Staples Center, Dodger Stadium, Downtown Los Angeles, Venice, Santa Monica, Hollywood, Long Beach Aquarium, Los Angeles Zoo, and the Getty Center.

Perfect Cottage in the Garden, Great Location, Quiet and Romantic!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay while we visiting family and seeing the sights. The location is very convenient to the beaches, restaurants and we loved the residential neighborhood. Pam welcomed us, gave us good ideas about the area, then we were allowed to enjoy the cottage on our own. Every need had been anticipated in the cottage. We were delighted to enjoy the rocker and recliner! The cottage is one room but the way it is designed it feels larger and when you add the lovely private garden, it was quite spacious. The little garden is a delight! We enjoyed coffee in the morning while watching the squirrels scamper and listening to the small water feature. It was also great for a glass of wine in the evening. We aren't usually spa fans but we made good use of the whirlpool a couple of times and it was heavenly. Thanks Pam and Bill for the mini refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker which helped us feel at home! Ask Pam about the best way to get to the beach on bikes without the hills. We loved biking on the strand! Reserve space at Ronald Reagan Presidential Library; it is amazing. We enjoyed a picnic on the grounds which are beautiful. HT Grill had excellent sea bass, great service and patio dining. Wonderful experience. Looking forward to returning soon.

A very nice place to stay while visiting the South Bay!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was the perfect place for our stay while we visited our children who reside in the area. The bed was excellent to sleep on and the cottage was so quiet, and so dark with the shades down, that we actually overslept each morning. We enjoyed the private use of the whirlpool and sitting area, either with a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night. The owners, Pam and Bill, were on-site, respected our privacy, were easy to communicate with, very friendly and seemed very knowledgeable about the area. There is no kitchen; but the coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave and toaster were all that was needed to prepare a good breakfast or lunch after an initial stop at the Trader Joe's nearby. Otherwise everything we could possible need was trustingly provided to us. We will definitely stay again!

Cozy, quiet & comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage was the perfect place for our stay. The bed was comfortable and it was very quiet. The owner was easy to communicate with and very friendly. We had hoped to use the bikes, but once we saw the steep hills between the house and the beach, we decided to drive. Lots of cute shops & restaurants in the area. We would definitely stay again.

Cozy, Comfortable and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

We spent 6 nights in this delightful accommodation which includes many amenities with friendly owners who were attentive to our needs. For us, it is conveniently located within minutes of our daughter and grandson. For tourists it is a great location from which to go sightseeing and bicycles are available for use by guests.

Perfect Place!

This cottage was the perfect retreat after wonderful days with our new Grandson! We were so close to our daughters home and could walk to so many places. We had absolutely everything we needed. Thank you Pam & Bill for your hospitality! We love your place and will definitely be back :)

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to come home to each night. It was just me this trip but I would definitely book again when traveling with my wife. Hospitality was superb. Walk to Ocean was invigorating, so took the bike the next day. I had a great workout the entire stay. Thanks Pam & Bill. C U again
