About marti nordskog and bill waters

Bill is a building contractor. I am a former flight attendant,traveling all over the world. Since retiring, I went back to UCLA and received my degree in Interior Design.

We also enjoy meeting all the guests we have had staying with us.

marti nordskog and bill waters purchased this house in 1999

Why marti nordskog and bill waters chose Redondo Beach

We have both lived in the South Bay for many years, Bill born and raised here. When we met, we both had a house & a dog.When we decided to buy a house together, we both fell in love with the craftsmanship as well as all the antique and unique features it had to offer and only 5 blocks to the beach.What a challenge it was, fixing it up and adding more 'Victorian' to its charm.

What makes this house unique

We loved all the wood details in the interior. Doors from a hotel,staircase and wainscoting from a Chicago Estate sale. Cut glass windows and stained glass doors & windows all from estate sales and antique auctions.

Victorian Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Although we had busy days, our nightly return to Marti and Bill's marvellous throwback retreat was something we looked forward to every night. They supplied every amenity, were unobtrusive hosts and made us feel at home in their house. The deck overlooking the garden - beautiful by day and night ( with ambient lighting) - was a special treat. A great find - thanks to the sharing economy.

Exactly as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and a wonderfully kind Hostess. It's in a nice quiet neighborhood that is only six blocks from the ocean. The only drawback was the parking restrictions on Thursdays and Fridays due to streetsweeping. The Hostess was very diligent in reminding us of this and allowed us to park in their drive during the restricted hours. Not a deal breaker by any means, but something to be aware of. All in all, I would certainly visit again.

Beautiful home and gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely marvelous. The rooms were spacious, and the architecture and craftsmanship was magnificent. Although we had some very busy days, we really enjoyed sitting on the deck, overlooking the garden, each morning and evening. A perfect way to begin and end each day.

Marti and Bill were excellent hosts. They were very friendly and attentive to our needs, while also allowing us our privacy. We highly recommend staying here.

Immaculate Victorian House, Very Clean& Comfortable with very Kind and Caring Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience at this gorgeous home in Rodondo Beach. It is very close to the beach and they allowed us access to beach cruisers (bikes), beach towels, and even the coolest beach chairs with umbrellas!! 🏖 We were always greeted with kindness and positivity, which was so welcoming and comfortable. They have everything you will need for your stay, and give you the privacy and comfort of your own home. This was way better than a hotel, and we will most definitely be returning!!! They do have a very kind dog, whom we saw only when we arrived and on the 6th day when we departed. They also have adorable cats, and they have their own portion of the house... you only see them through their front porch. We both have cat allergies and were not bothered at all. No animal hair to be seen!!! 😊 Thank you Marti and Bill for the wonderful service you provide to travelers!! We highly recommend this home if you are looking to visit any of the beach communities!!!!
