Lee and I live on the premises and love sharing this special haven with others. Please feel free to contact us directly by phone to arrange the details of your stay.
Lee and I have experienced the joy of living in this beautiful home for over 28 years. We are the original owners. Watching this sanctuary built from the ground up was such a privilege, so exciting.
It now holds some wonderful memories of the many visits of both our immediate family, and the many travelers we call family that have stayed with us over the years.
As both our family, and those of our extended traveling families move on, we have been encouraged to move on as well..........and that is into the world of the VRBO.
We love sharing our special haven with others, and our many friends encouraged us to open our cottage to others that would enjoy its comfort and peace.
Please call for a chat. I love sharing all the quaint offerings of Hermosa Beach and the cottage. 310-344-4060
Terrylou purchased this apartment in 1986
Although Lee is a transplant from the SF Valley, I was raised by the water, and have lived in Hermosa Beach for 38 years.
It has dramatically changed over that time, becoming more of a hot spot in the South Bay.
Our home is close enough to the action to enjoy a nice cocktail and still walk home, but far enough away from those that don't remember where home is.
That charm of the beach, and the beautiful ocean view from our living room, were all it took to fall in love with our dream home.
Our property is quiet and peaceful. Lee and I have enjoyed the comfort and tranquility this home has offered us, as well as the beautiful ocean just a short walk away.
Are these 'unique benefits'? They were to two people wanting to escape the chaos of the city. We hope that you enjoy these 'unique benefits' on your stay with us :)
We had a lovely time at Terrylou's place. The bed and huge sectional couch were comfortable and the shady outdoor garden space was delightful for drinking coffee in the mornings and dining in the evening! We cooked a dinner using the grill and toaster oven, which both worked very well. The bathroom is light and bright with a good shower and plenty of counter space. We took the 15 minute walk to the beach a couple of times. It was very pleasantly downhill, so we took an inexpensive uber ride back to avoid the uphill climb after spending time at the beach, shopping and eating. Terrylou was a wonderful host and even her neighbors and friends helped us out. We would definitely stay here again!
I had a very positive experience staying with TL. The rental was clean and comfortable, with a giant couch that could probably sleep an entire family. We walked to the beach several times during our stay and had access to some great restaurants. As a bonus, TL was super friendly and inviting.
This cute retreat was perfect for our stay. Comfortable and clean with all the amenities we required and a really convenient location. The bed was comfortable, the air circulation was good and there was more than enough space for two. The added bonus was the private and peaceful outdoor patio with lots of shade. Thanks to Terrylou, our wonderful host, for her attention to details. You'll be happy with this hideaway.
I rented this cute little cottage last week for 4 days with 3 teenagers. Worked out perfect! Close to the beach and next door to a park. Although I didn't get to meet her face to face (we were hardly there) she was available by phone or text if we had any questions. Great space..comfy sectional sofa in living area, plenty of big fluffy towels, a welcome basket with snacks and fresh flowers. Patio area was adorable. I would recommend this property and will definitely stay here again.
Incredible customer service. We will definitely stay again when in Hermosa and highly recommend this unit to others looking to stay in the area.
We rented Park Cottage Hermosa over Valentine's Day weekend. We enjoyed a quiet, clean and cozy retreat here! Being from out of town, Terrylou provided us with great restaurant recommendations and was very welcoming and helped us get acclimated to the area. That being said, we also had our privacy too. It is about a 15-20 minute walk to the beach and Pier Avenue (shopping and restaurants). We loved it here! I am often hesitant about booking places sight unseen but this was a winner, and I would definitely return!
