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.

Beautiful Victorian. Wonderful hosts. Good location.

  • 5 of 5

Our room was beautiful and had a terrace which was wonderful for a morning coffee or evening glass of wine. Our hosts, Marti and Bill, struck the perfect balance between privacy and attentiveness. They were also very generous with use of the bikes, beach chairs, and even beach towels.

My primary gauge is whether I would stay there again and my answer is definitely yes. Highly recommended.

Luxurious bedroom with a patio overlooking a garden. Great hospitality, like staying with family.

  • 5 of 5

Marti and Bill were great hosts. The room was impressive and comfortable, with a small fridge, water bottles, coffee, and a selection of books to enjoy on a patio or in the garden. The location was good as well. A short walk to the sea side for a brunch at a place like Captain Kidd's. A 15 minute bike ride to the Strand, which can take you across many beaches all the way to Malibu. Bicycles were provided by Bill and Marti. I definitely look forward to coming back to this paradise.

BEST stay ever!

  • 5 of 5

Marti and Bill are the perfect hosts. They are hospitable, kind and welcoming. Beyond that, their home is absolutely beautiful. My wife and I were in awe from the time we walked through the door (actually, walking up to the house was amazing, too. They had fantastic Christmas decorations!). Next time I plan on going to SoCal, I'm definitely going to try and book with Mari and Bill again. Thanks for making our weekend getaway perfect!

Owner's Response: This couple were the perfect guests. They were so interested in our home and the architectural details of the Victorian theme of our home. We spent many years on finding just the right antiques and furnishings. All the chandeliers are custom made as well as the draperies and bedding in our guest rooms. We are so happy they loved our home as much as we do. This is a home that is a labor of love and imagination. Anyone who walks through our door is not disappointed in either our rooms or our hospitality. We love people visiting us because their experiences brings to us what is most important to travelers. A home away from home.

Beautiful Victorian home close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! Bill and Marti are exceptional hosts. The rooms are comfy and super clean. The house is simply charming and takes you back in time. The backyard is a small oasis and particularly romantic at night. They offer bikes and beach chairs. We stayed in the room with balcony and loved having coffee there every morning. Can't say enough about this place.
