Step back in time with this fully restored 1924 California Bungalow. Located in a quiet neighborhood of Vista del Oro in San Pedro (next to Averill Park.) This house features 2 bedrooms with queen size beds, a living room, dining room, fully equipped 50s style kitchen, bathroom, high speed wi-fi Internet access, a small television, a large back yard with patio furniture, outdoor cooking appliances and heaters. A long driveway and large garage allow parking for multiple cars.
The adjacent communities are Palos Verdes, Long Beach and Redondo Beach. Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Venice, LAX and Culver City are about 30 minutes away depending on traffic. San Pedro has a small Downtown with quaint independent shops, a coffee house, theatre, its own brewing company, a few good restaurants and plenty of awesome ethnic foods. Ports O’ Call down the street in the harbor offers many fun eateries and fish markets. The bluffs on the west side of the peninsula are spectacular and provide many hiking trails. Cabrillo Beach offers a sand beach and of course, the marina is where Transpac and other sailing races take off from.
Depending on why you’re here, I can give you plenty of recommendations of what to do or see, when and where. I go out a lot and I’m plugged into the music and art scene in and around the city. LA is so big that without an insider, it’s easy to get lost and miss out on the really cool and fun (and often times, free!) stuff to do.
A note about San Pedro. San Pedro is a suburb of Los Angeles situated at the southern end of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Many residents have Italian and Croatian origins, as well as Portuguese, Mexican, Irish and Greek, in part because of the commercial fishing history and also the similarity in landscape and weather to the Mediterranean. It’s a small coastal town with a little Downtown, with restaurants and bars, fish markets, independent shops and plenty of local color. There is also a vibrant artistic community who came to escape LA’s overcrowding, traffic and high rents. San Pedro could be the last real village in Southern California.
If you want to book the house for yourself, you need to book it for two; that's my minimum. Also, I'm now only accepting reservations for a minimum of 5 days. Finally, please note that I've set my prices on the low end so please don't ask for a discount.
You get to enjoy the entire house and backyard.
I can be reached with any questions at anytime via phone or email.
My house is located in Vista Del Oro, a very quiet and desirable part neighborhood. I provide a mini guide detailing what to see and do, where to eat, activities etc in and around San Pedro.
You can park on the driveway provided your vehicle has no leaks.
Check out is 11 a.m. and check-in after 4 p.m. No smoking inside the house. No use of the fireplace. For reservations of five days and under and two guests, use the guest bedroom to store your personal belongings. There is an empty armoire and small walk-in closet. You are welcome to invite a few friends over but no parties. My neighbors will give me the lowdown and you will loose your deposit. No cheating as fas as the number of guests. Tell the truth and will take it from there. I'm down the street so it's easy for me to check things out and make everything is right. $80 cleaning fee for stays over one week.
All guests must be named at the time of booking and present a valid ID upon arrival. No unregistered guests are permitted to enter the house at any time unless I have been told ahead of time. Failure to comply with this rule may result in immediate termination of the booking and/or collection of the security deposit.
I love to travel but not as a tourist. I appreciate and need art, value friendship, family, and have respect for all and everything. We are a small part of a bigger whole and everything is connected. I like good conversations, different cultures, anthropology, the Sierras, the ocean, hiking and try to live simply, deeply, richly and organically. I like to go to small music clubs to hear new sounds from emerging bands. I enjoy going to art openings, dancing and anything fun. I appreciate fashion and style, like to take photos and write poetry.
