Rented the home for the weekend with 9 of my girlfriends and had an amazing time. Keys were easy to get and the house had all the essentials. The bedrooms were simple and clean with plenty of towels and bathrooms to share. Great kitchen for shared meals and quality time with the girls. The rooftop is amazing with a view of the ocean from afar. The home had beach boogie boards, beach cruisers, a pool table and table tennis that we wish we had more time to use. Great living room space and the outdoor patio was perfect for a dinner outside. The theater room down stairs was great for a late night movie and it took less than a 10 minute walk to get to the beach. A perfect place for a weekend getaway! None of us wanted to leave!

The house was truly a dream vacation home. The living room was by far my favorite room in the house. The sliding doors that allows the outside in was very refreshing. The movie theater and gym also was a added plus! I would definitely rent again. Thank you for renting out such a fabulous house.

Carl, my family enjoyed the house. It was close to the beach and food places. The beds and pillows were all comfortable. We had a great time, the little ones enjoyed the toys. The house served us well for a party of 13( ages range from 2-69 yrs). The weather was great and cooled the house all day. Thank you again for sharing your home.

This house is incredible and we all didn’t want to leave! It was everything that was promised and more. My extended family and I spent a nice weekend at the beach house. For a group of 13 it felt very comfortable and spacious and probably could have slept a handful more. The entire house was done with such eye for detail. Everything from the fireplace in front of the soaking tub, to the rain head shower with the skylight, to the outdoor fireplace with the sliding wall to bring the outdoors in. It was 100% luxurious and relaxing. And there was indeed a huge theater room. The video and audio was awesome! There was even a nice selection of blue rays and Dvds for all to enjoy. Everything was clean and well taken care of. There was toys for the little ones, ping-pong and billiards for the adults. It even comes with all the things you can use for the beach like umbrellas and body boards. Everything that I could have wanted was provided. Plus, it was only a 5 minute stroll to the beautiful soft sandy beach! This house was perfect and just what my family wanted for our vacation. Now we have great memories of our time together that could not have been possible anywhere else!

This is our fifth so-Cal house rental. For this one, we rented this Hermosa Beach house for our family as part of a Southern California destination wedding. The house is spacious and beautiful. The location is walking distance to the beach and is located in a nice quiet cul-de-sac. I used one of the bikes and road for miles along the strand. The other huge convienience is the proximity to lax airport — it is a straight shot on PCH/Sepulveda — less than 20 minutes. The kitchen and large family room with glass sliding wall out to the patio was the perfect hang out for our family. Kitchen is very nice. Bedrooms are spacious. Everything was clean. All-in-all, a good experience for us.

Thanks for a wonderfule stay. This is the best house in Hermosa Beach – great open space, fantastic bbq and gas stove, huge movie theater for watching all the films we missed in the cinema, and an amazing roofdeck to take in the serenity. The house is so close to the airport it was so easy for my group to fly into LAX from across the country to enjoy the weekend. Hopefully we’ll be back again soon!

We spent 10 days at this beautiful home with family and friends. It is spacious and nicely decorated. Four bedrooms meant plenty of room to sleep and the large kitchen was a great gathering spot in the evenings. The kids especially enjoyed the pool/ping pong table and theater room. The owner was very responsive with the few things that needed adjustment. The owner’s housekeeper does a wonderful job with keeping the home clean! Would recommend this home!

We spent a week in this luxurious property as it was the perfect home to bring together our extended family from other states for a summer vacation. While we were apprehensive of staying anywhere off the beach (even a few blocks), everyone agreed that it was the best decision we made in terms of lodging. It is a short walk to the beach, use of one of the four bikes available, and easy 2 min drop off/pick up of excess beach equipment (we had 10+ at the beach each day as we had 14 family members there at one point without feeling crowded). There was plenty of space for everyone to relax on the three levels and roof top. The theatre, work out room, and game area gave the kids plenty to do while not on the beach. Everyone was impressed with the attention to detail on the decor and design of the property. Finally, Carl was an absent but attentive host (responsive to vmail or email) and that was really appeciated while we enjoyed our time together as a family. We would recommend this property to anyone whom enjoys space, comfort, a relaxing experience (even with larger parties of 8+) and its great for kids. We will definitely make it back to Hermosa Beach and reconnect with Carl as everyone in our party was impressed with the property.
