Hawthorne Apartment Rental Photos and Description

This unit in Hawthorne is minutes from LA attractions, shopping & entertainment.

Near LAX and great beaches (Manhattan, Hermosa, Redondo). New kitchen, great location, and comfortable. Spacious unit tucked between two families on a beautifully landscaped property. Close to shopping, entertainment, and the airport.

A beautifully remodeled unit of a triplex (only three units on the property) in a nice, walk-able west Hawthorne neighborhood. Family friendly as well as nice for couples or business travel. Easily sleeps up to 3 adults (1 queen bed and 1 pull-out full sofa bed). The sofa bed can fit two children.

Free WiFi and Netflix.

10 minutes to LAX

15 minutes to Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach

30 minutes to Downtown LA

45-50 minutes to Disneyland

Guest Access

A parking spot for one vehicle at the left end of the driveway (should feel comfortable going in reverse to get out of the driveway). Any seating area in the driveway and in the backyard is free to relax.

The neighborhood is nice and you will see people walking their dogs and running for exercise. We are the last multi-family unit before a predominant single family home area.

Getting around

We are close to buses, the green line (train) is only 2 miles away. It is much easier to get around by car, but bikes are also an option. A taxi to/from the airport ranges from $10-20.

Other Things to Note

Overall it is a quiet place, but occasionally neighbors can make some noise coming and going (the bedroom window is near a driveway for a 4-plex).

For young children we do have a Graco (pack n play) crib and a high chair available.

This is an excellent appartment. We found it to be close to all freeways and the beaches are only 10 mins away by car. Plenty of eating places close by. I guess the easiest way to sum it up is, would I use it again. - YOU BET!

Great apartment, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 4 nights here when we were in town for the CrossFit Games. It was an easy drive to an from Carson to go to the Games as well as to and from LAX.

The owners were great. They greeted us when we arrived and provided us with additional towels for beach ... which, sadly we didn't use.

The apartment is quiet and comfortable. The access to a Netflix account was a huge bonus, as we got to continue our Orange is the New Black obsession.

Nice place, nice people, would definitely stay again.

homey, clean and modern

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. Lucy responds quickly to enquiries and requests.

The place is so clean and comfortable. Nice sheets and pillows. Complete amenities, even essentials like shampoo, soap, detergent, cooking stuff like oil, salt & pepper, herbs, etc. even some canned goods and filter water pitcher! Lots of hangers (very important), and closet space.

We did use the beach chairs one day. They came in handy. Also used the HDMI to connect our laptop to watch netflix.

It's a pretty quiet neighborhood and felt safe.

I'd highly recommend this to all my friends and family.

Immaculately Clean, Cozy, and Just Like Home

  • 5 of 5

We entered Lucy's vacation rental home and were immediately impressed with how clean and comfortable it was. Everything is provided....clean linens, towels, bathroom items, dishes....everything. There was even a few basic food staples in the cupboard that other renters had left behind. We added coffee to the cupboard. Lucy was about when we arrived and made herself available. She even came by with beach towels in case we wanted to visit one of the many nearby beaches.

After about the third day of running around LA we took a mid-day breather and just relaxed with family at the rental. Lucy stopped by with a pitcher of fresh made limeade she made from her lime trees in the back yard!! It was amazing and really hit the spot.

We will be back for sure and will recommend this property to anyone traveling to the area.

Biodun and Korede

  • 5 of 5

Lucy's South bay rental was a real "home away from home" and not cliché. From the welcoming ambiance and decor to the littlest details any overnight traveler or holidaying persons could require, everything could be found in there. The beds, very comfortable with fresh linens at your finger tips. The bathroom had everything, toiletries, essentials, just name it. The kitchen too, fully functional and well stocked. All amenities worked fine, but should you have any minor issue, Lucy or her husband are there to resolve it in no time.

As for Lucy herself? I don't know where to start from, she is a hostess's hostess. Very nice, always available, ready to assist and goes the extra mile. I won't forget her regular bowl of fruits, goodies and treats for my nephews in a hurry, she even allowed them to play with her kids stuff (how more welcoming can one be)?. I can go on and on... God bless Lucy and her entire household. We sure recommend her facility 100% and will be visiting again soon. Thank you Lucy, for making our vacation memorable, wishing you all, all the best!

Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach are 4 miles away. Dockweiler beach has fire pits you can use and stay after sunset. Many museums and sites to see and do in Los Angeles.
