Luxurious New Beach Home
Escape to LA Magazine's praised "Favorite Outstanding Coastal Town" of Hermosa Beach, with its breathtaking ocean views surrounded by a mecca of restaurants, upscale shops, art galleries, antique markets and sightseeing delights. This lively "smallest of the beach towns" city is also well known for its summer concerts and musical entertainment festivals, ranging from blues to jazz. Stroll the scenic 1000-ft pier and follow the lead of the locals to take in the vistas of the Santa Monica Bay and Palos Verdes Peninsula. Perhaps explore barefoot the beautiful beach and walk pier-to-pier between Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach, which is a 4-mile roundtrip exploration (or you can easily opt to drive down the famous Hwy-1 coast from Hermosa Beach to Redondo Beach); either option you choose, stop along the route as there are plenty of fun places to relax, eat and drink, Bike or walk the 22-mile paved route referred to as "The Strand"; participate in a game of beach volleyball or paddleboard the small waves; or perhaps rent a hybrid electric cruiser, skates, scooters or skateboards to roam about as you wish. Stroll fabulously chic Pier Avenue, with its dozens of boutiques, coffee shops and eateries, and end at the Pier Plaza known for its many bars and party atmosphere. Go mural hunting, as Hermosa Beach has luckily acquired an excellent collection of art displayed on its streets, walls and buildings - known as the Hermosa Beach Mural Project, a non-profit dedicated to enhancing the appearance of public spaces through positive art. Get active and take a run on "The Greenbelt", a 3-mile long path extending from Hermosa Beach to Manhattan Beach, perfectly shaded and full of benches and picnic tables for stop breaks. Enjoy drinks at the famous Lighthouse Cafe, one of the central West Coast Jazz clubs from the 50's to 70's, with several records including the movie La La Land having been made onsite.

Susan and Rick were wonderful Host. The house is amazing. Only one oops. Ugh. The elevator was not working and hauling groceries and stuff manually to the kitchen was rough. Bring strong men!!! They were so generous letting us use their bikes and beach accessories! Great for couples get away or family vacation. 4 blocks to the board walk and beach. Very hilly but so close!!! ”
Amazing house. Everything from the layout to the furnishings was perfect. The 3rd floor great room is perfect for feeling togetherness with the family. Also, loved the easy walks to the beach. And, the bikes and ebikes made the stay complete!”
