Walk on the beautifully-stained hardwood floors. Watch the breathtaking sunsets over the ocean from anywhere in the living room, the kitchen or 25' long west-facing balcony (see photo).

Guests can watch the 47' LCD TV in the living room from the couch, the chair and the foldout sofa-loveseat. There is WIFI internet throughout the unit.

About Alex Smith

My wife and I have lived in the South Bay for 3 generations. We raised two sons in the South Bay of Los Angeles. Our whole family loves the ocean, so we could never live away from the beach. Boating from King Harbor Marina just a couple blocks to the south is one of our passions.

Alex Smith purchased this apartment in 1984

Why Alex Smith chose Los Angeles County

I bought the property because it is across the street from the home my father and I built ourselves and where I grew up. I love the area.

What makes this apartment unique

It's so easy to walk to the Strand, go for a bikeride, go shopping, dining and enjoy outdoor recreation, all in the same place and without getting in a car!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I love this location just 2 blocks to beach, 6 to great night life, 5 to the Marina. Take a bike ride on the famous Strand, go boogie boarding, surfing or get a tan on the beach. I grew up across the street from this property. That is why when the opportunity came up to purchase this place I jumped on it. I have owned it since the early 80's. A couple months ago Gentil and I decided to add some improvements and furnish it to be a vacation rental. Gentil really did a fantastic job. Come see

Casa de chill

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely fantastic! I came with a group of young guys (early 20's) and we loved hanging out on the balcony when we got back from the beach, which was only a 5 minute walk away at most. It was very convenient having chairs for the beach provided. The pier is very close with all the bars and restaurants you could ask for. We also used the "Smart TV" to look up youtube videos and music. It really could not be in a better location. The "Casa de Chill" will always bring fond memories of our stay in Hermosa. Thanks Alex!

beach apartment

  • 4 of 5

A clean well kept apartment which has a homely-feel to it. The lavatory blocked and flooded, but was soon fixed by someone after a phone call. It was close to the beach but I was unable to open the combination lock on the garage to find the beach kit. I still liked it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the quick review. As you acknowledged, we are a quick phone call away in case of emergencies, plumbing or otherwise. The combo code to the garage is located in a folder, always sitting on the coffee table when you arrive at our home.

Great Functionality for a Family

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 had a fantastic time staying in this Hermosa beach home. We were able to walk to the beach everyday. The Hermosa beach "strip" is very close as well and gave us lots of additional entertainment and endless places to eat. Best of all the house was very flexible for my family, and was kid friendly to a point I was not worried about them walking into a different room by themselves.

I ? Hermosa!

  • 5 of 5

This place is rad! We stayed for three nights with two couples and had a great time in this cozy apartment. We loved sitting on the balcony looking out at the ocean, soaking up the sun. It's so close to the Strand so we spent the majority of our time relaxing on the beach and bumming around Hermosa. The beach chairs and cruisers were an added bonus. We were sad to leave but we'll be back!

great beach rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic vacation by the beach at this rental! As all of the other reviews have mentioned, the amenities couldn't have been better. The apartment was cozy and comfortable and exactly what we needed while we were in the area. Our 3-year-old loved sleeping in the trundle bed in the second bedroom, and the balcony had a high ledge so we felt safe with him there. Alex did a great job of checking in with us, and like everyone has said, the food basket was a wonderful treat so that we didn't have to go to the store the first night we were there. We would highly recommend this rental!
