About Jaki Scarcello

I am a transplanted Canadian, born in Ireland and 12 years ago I left the winters in Toronto and moved to the beach. There are days when I just can't believe how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful place. My family is still in Toronto so I am often back there, snow or no snow (and I ski) so I decided to share this wonderful beach adventure while I travel elsewhere.

I am an author and I have a home office and an assistant and she will be your concierge.She will work in the garage of the house ( separate entrance) a few days a week and is available for your questions and issues.When she is not at work she is just a phone call away to answer your questions and help you out should you need anything during your stay.

Sharing your home is a big decision but I think this space is too wonderful to keep to ourselves so we invite you to share it and respect it as your own, we know you will love it

Jaki Scarcello purchased this house in 1987

Why Jaki Scarcello chose Redondo Beach

Living in Hermosa is like being on vacation all year round. Even when live is stressful, which it can be for everyone, you can always drop it all and go for a walk down to the strand and beach and pier. You can grab a bike and cycle to dinner in the next town over. There is something about the openness of the sea and the sun and the abundant plant life which brings perspective. We are so blessed to live here

What makes this house unique

Our home is lit with California sunshine. A few years ago we replaced all the windows, even expanded some to bring in the wonder of where we live.

When you look through those windows you are treated to the abundance of the California greenery, palms and bamboo and our year round flowers and from some windows on the horizon you can watch the sea.

In the back courtyard of our home, accessible by French doors is our retreat space, a Japanese Koi pond with a waterfall and professional landscaping. You can sit for hours by that pond and watch our Koi swim in the sun. They love to be fed by hand and will beg like puppies if they see you in the swing or hammock chair by the pond.

Our kitchen is our studio…we are foodies and the space is large and functional and contains all the bells and whistles you will need, including an indoor grill to cook up a great meal, while looking out to the sea on the horizon.

Great location, great host!

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at the house! It was comfortable and had a nice homey feel. We enjoyed visiting with the Koi each morning and evening. It was a short walk to the beach and the neighborhood was nice and quiet. We had everything we needed and Claire was a great help for anything we didn't.

We had a wonderful time and highly recommend!

Relaxed vacation at the Koi House

  • 5 of 5

My family together with our neighbors arrived from Sweden to this oasis in LA. We really enjoyed the house and is surrounding allowing us to slow down to a vacation pace easily. In total we were 5 adults and there were plenty of room for all of us. Feeding the Koi's in the morning and to see them eat was also something a bit of a treat.

The information provided to us both before and during the stay was excellent. All the support from Peggy was very much appriciated.

Toronto family of 5

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 spent 3 nights in the peaceful retreat of the Koi House. This is our third stay there and we really enjoyed the place -- makes us feel at home. It is very well equipped, beautifully decorated and clean and has a central location. Peggy was very helpful. Everything went really smoothly. We also enjoyed some local restaurants within walking distance as well, and of course Pinkberry (my kids' favorite spot whenever they are in California).

perfect rental home in hermosa beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent 4 nights in this home. It is beautifully appointed and perfectly located. It is a perfect layout for a family of 4 with older children. The Hermosa Beach area is very nice and you would not need to leave the immediate area for a short getaway. However we used it as a base for exploring the LA area, and even with the terrible LA traffic, the home is about 30 min. or less to anywhere you may want to go. We drove easily to Hollywood, the Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach, the Staples Center for a Lakers game, and not to be missed 15 min. to the south is Rancho Palos Verdes. The home is immaculate and has all the amenities you could need.

Super Clean & Peaceful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the Koi House- just a few blocks from the ocean and beach parks along with multiple restaurants, food choices and yoga studios all walking distance from home. Gourmet Kitchen won't disappoint (although serious chefs-we recommend bringing your own set of culinary knives) Unit is set back on property, 3 levels offering a beautiful view of the sunset from 2nd level. Private master bedroom set apart from other bedrooms huge plus if traveling with family/kids. Koi and hummingbirds add to the home's charm. Housing Manager, Peggy gives 5 Star Service- available 24/7 to answer all questions/concerns- a rare find.

Hermosa beach
Car: recommended

Hermosa is a great beach community just six miles from LAX. Close to all the big LA attractions( approx 18 miles to LA) but all the sweet laid back atmosphere of a holiday beach town.

Check out directions to my favorite cliff walk along the ocean in our guest book, great picnic spot too.

And here are some fantastic places within easy walking distance:

• THE COMEDY AND MAGIC CLUB (with Jay Leno every Sunday)

• THE HERMOSA BEACH PIER

• NUMEROUS RESTAURANTS, CLUBS AND CAFES

• PLAYGROUNDS AND PARKS

• AND, OF COURSE, THE BEACH!

Great website for info on Hermosa Beach- everything you need to know and what will make you want to come here for sure

Hermosa offers the three S's - Safe- Sunny- Sandy
