Guest access

Riviera Cozy Bright Beach House: Private Hot Tub, Access to entire house and large, fully fenced SUPER KID FRIENDLY YARD WITH PLAYGROUND featuring swings, a 2 story wooden fort (!!!), and direct access to the bridle path that leads down to the ocean (3/4 mile).

We also offer a propane grill, outdoor seating for 6, and a garden patio for evening drinks or morning coffee!

We are pretty flexible and easy. We ask that guests respect our house rules and our neighbors by being quiet during evening and early morning hours. Please treat our house the way you treat your own.

This is a special find in the South Bay. The accommodations feel more like the San Fransisco, Santa Cruz, or Seattle area than the slick and polished LA area. This is a beach house farmette on a wood chip trail by the ocean. We love it here, and hope you do too!

We are walkable to the ocean, but WE ARE NOT OCEAN FRONT. The walk down is filled with beautiful vista from Catalina to Santa Barbara and the Channel Islands.

This Studio Cottage and the house are Organic dwellings. As such, you may be visited by some bugs such as daddy long legs spiders, and gnats during gnat season. They are harmless. For the safety of our guests, we prefer a few bugs to a poisoned environment. If you do see a spider, please don’t scream, as it may scare her. ;)

This is a NO SMOKING property! :)
NO SMOKING or VAPING is allowed anywhere on the property.

I am happy to exchange a Q&A about the accommodations... I love hosting and most of our guests enjoy their stay immensely. xx

Interaction with guests

We are around for face to face communication, talk over the phone, text, or or otherwise accessible as desired. Just let me know!

We had an 8 nights stay in Linda's place for a family reunion after a 2 week round road trip round northern California. Its a spacious well equipped house on a residential housing estate so not quite the beach house we expected.The actual description of the property is misleading as its not a short walk to the beach so you would need a car to get the most out of Redondo. We didn't have the use of a car the whole time so this was a problem for us personally.The bed was extremely comfortable and having Netflix was a bonus but more wardrobe hanging space for longer staying guests would be appreciated. Linda was always at hand for questions and help. She kindly supplied a small space heater as it was a little chilly in the house in the early morning. Although our understanding was that we had the entire house were surprised to find guests coming through the garden to the small 'casita' in the garage as we took breakfast in our PJ's! Lovely location well into the estate and handy for a hiking path down the side of the estate which eventually leads to main road and another walk to the beach. Good for a long weekend where you have a car to get the most of Redondo.

Just enjoyed a lovely stay at Linda's house in Redondo Beach. We are family of six and this house was perfect size for us. The location is nice and quiet, but also close to everything we needed. Beautiful walks to beach and near to Ralphs supermarket and Starbucks along with an array of nice restuarants. Linda's communication before and during the visit was excellent. The Jacuzzi was a nice addition and the garden is very peaceful. We enjoyed a regular visit from a Hummingbird while drinking our coffee outside. There is a small Casita in the back which was occupied with several guests during our three week stay but we hardly noticed they were there. Overall, I would thoroughly recommend a stay here and look forward to returning ourselves sometime in the future.

Linda's place was clean, beautiful and close to restaurants and the beach. We loved the gorgeous quiet neighborhood, perfect for meandering walks and watching the amazing sunsets. Linda was a wonderful host, promptly responding to any question I had throughout the duration of our stay. Wonderful hosts and an overall lovely place to stay, Linda and Suzi definitely deserve five stars!

The property is in a great location and the beds very comfortable. The kitchen is also large and well equipped. It's about a mile walk to the beach but you can also drive down and park within 0.2 miles at no charge. Also within a mile are grocery stores, shops, and restaurants. The house does not have AC. If you are traveling at a time where the lows are not getting into the 60's or very low 70's you need to be prepared for that.

Alex, the temperatures here are typically in the high 80s and the house is always cool from the ocean breeze. You came here during a crazy heat wave of temperatures in the 100s and no one in the South Bay was comfortable! :)

This is a great, family friendly location. Nice yard, with a place to sit and eat and a children's s play area. The kitchen was well stocked, great bathroom, comfortable furniture. Beautiful flowers all over the neighborhood. We were in town for a family wedding and I thought ours was the best location if the three we rented.

Great spot for a family vacation. Very close to everything Redondo has to offer. Nice, quiet neighborhood with a walking trail that will lead you to the ocean. Probably 25 min walk. Loved the home, great wifi, and Linda was more than helpful with anything I needed and was very responsive. I would definitely stay again.

Anthony, we enjoyed hosting your family! Yes, it is about a 25 minute WALK to Riviera Village shops, but only about 12 minutes down to the sand right below. So happy you loved using our basic clean house as a home base for your family!
