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 South Redondo

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.

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 home! Everything was as stated in description!

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Marti were great hosts! We didn’t get a chance to talk to them much as we were out and about a lot, but when we did they gave us great ideas on sights to see and places to eat. They let you borrow their bikes, so we spent one day riding up the Strand to Santa Monica. Their home is in a perfect location in a nice area of Redondo Beach. It was a short distance from LAX and very easy to find. The location makes it easy to get to many other places in the area. If we get an opportunity to come back to LA we would definitely stay with Bill and Marti again😊?
