Relax in a spacious, 2100 foot square home that is a PERFECT location for family with kids, adults only, or group of friends!

Walk to world famous Del Amo Mall with Macy's, Barnes & Noble, Nordstrom, AMC movie theatres, and much more! Hungry? Stroll over to restaurants such as Benihana, Marie Callendar's (famous for their pies!), Souplantation, El Torito Grill, and Red Lobster. Or walk to the neighborhood market. The list goes on!

There is a spacious dining patio off the kitchen with a BBQ, and a deck off the master bedroom for morning coffee. Then have yourself a seat on the front porch and watch native birds bathe in the bird bath which takes center stage in the lovely garden. After a day at the beach, shopping, sight seeing or wherever your adventures have taken you, end your day here to enjoy, rest and relax.

About Jeff & Jasmin

Hello there. My wife and I have been in what's commonly known as the South Bay for over 30 years. We love it here! I grew up on the island of Oahu in Hawaii and my wife has European roots and family off the coast of the Adriatic Sea. We enjoy traveling and like sharing our local gems with fellow travelers.

Why Jeff & Jasmin chose Torrance

This location is the best of what the beach cities have to offer. We have easy access to some of the most attractive beaches in Southern California, shopping, dining. We're close but not too close to the major highways and LAX. The community is safe, walk-friendly, family-friendly.

What makes this house unique

The home is a pleasant oasis in the heart of a bustling city. After a long day out, a welcoming place to return and relax, have a barbeque, sit outside on the patio and then go inside to catch up on all your shows you've recorded on the DVR while out for the day. Or you can head over to the AMC Theaters and see the latest from Hollywood. There's plenty of space to stretch out, take a stroll around the garden, or walk around the neighborhood. The home has the warm creature comforts you want when you're away from home and it's easy on the budget.

Spotless, Comfortable, Well-Equipped and Well Maintained

  • 5 of 5

A peaceful neighborhood just a 10-minute drive from Redondo Beach. A first-rate home perfect for our family gathering of seven in a mini-reunion with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, a large cook's kitchen with top-notch appliances.

Spotless, well-maintained, with a great "local's" guide provided with info on the area's Farmer's Market, shopping and touring.

High quality washer/dryer combo and beach supplies in the garage/workshop, and a first-rate gas barbecue in the roomy side-yard with a great outdoor dining set.

If you're in the area, and a setting this size is what you need, don't hesitate to rent this location. Easy freeway access to Knott's Berry Farm and Disneyland Resort, Santa Monica Pier, UCLA Dodger Stadium and downtown L.A.

Clean, quiet, spacious place

  • 4 of 5

Our favorite part about this place was having 3 showers... with three small children (8, 8, 5) it was perfect for getting them off to bed after a long day doing whatever we were into. This place was also fairly centrally located (and in a quiet neighborhood) for what we were looking to do (several different beaches, ice cream, Universal Studios, visit with the grandparents).

There were only a couple of drawbacks to this place... no air conditioning, so it was a little stuffy in the evening unless there was a breeze and the upstairs older windows didn't have locks on them.

Christmas Family Get-Together

  • 5 of 5

Jasmin was organized and kept everything very easy. The home was really clean and comfortable. This was a Christmas family gathering and the space was great for meals and game nights. My 19 and 21 year old grandsons had some fun competitions with their Dad, Uncle and Grandpa playing pool set up in the garage. The location was great for walking to the grocery store (2 blocks away and we did an easy 9 block walk to the movie theater. Of course all the beaches in the area are wonderful. This home played a major role in our family having a lovely time.
