About Terrylou

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

Why Terrylou chose Redondo Beach

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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 :)

Thanksgiving visit

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay. We had Thanksgiving dinner on the patio (not a full kitchen, but it's easy to warm up food). Our kids slept on the couches and we took the bedroom. This is a great neighborhood (we used to live down the hill). Their is a park next door, Trader Joe's down the hill, and of course the beach and pier are close by. The driveway parking is a major plus for this area. Terri lives upstairs, but the back entrance and rental area is completely private with a lovely patio. Thanks so much for hosting!

Nice place for a relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

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.

Comes with a secret garden.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review, Gordon. We try to make our spot a home away from home, but more importantly a quiet place to relax after a full day of fun in the sun. I hope to see you the next time you are in the South Bay.

Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Dear Cecilia, I am so glad that you and your grandchildren had a nice time in Hermosa. I know that a big part of any vacation is the place you're calling "home". during that time. I hope to SEE you next time you come to visit. :) Warmly, Terrylou
