Redondo Beach Family Reunion

Review submitted: June 10, 2014   Date of arrival: May 25, 2014

We live in Europe and have rented villas in several countries and the US. I found Ruth to be one of the most responsive owners with whom I've corresponded. She always replied within just a few hours, amazing given the nine time zones between us. Ruth provided excellent materials regarding the property including a short-term lease. She was very professional.

I rented this property for a family reunion for people in the PNW and a few who flew in to attend. The property worked amazingly well. The kitchen downstairs was very well appointed, all of us had everything we needed for cooking and cleaning. There were more spices and other supplies in this property than I've had in any other. We used the upstairs wet bar as a staging area for patio parties and grilling. It was very convenient. After the Mariners game we actually had 24 people aged 2 to 78 in for dinner. The play area in the backyard saved the day with the children and the adults enjoyed the view and multiple places to sit and talk.

The television and surround sound system are the best I've ever had in a rental villa. There are movies included in the satellite package and a few extras on-hand. All of the equipment worked very well and was clearly well-maintained. The water and ice in the refrigerator door feature was a blessing.

There are sleeping accommodations for six. There are two comfortable beds in the bedrooms and a daybed in the downstairs sitting area that we didn't use. The downstairs bedroom is in the back of the property and was very quiet. The downstairs bathroom was just a few steps away and had a bathtub.
The upstairs bedroom is open to the rest of that floor and provides a great view of the water but much less privacy. It's also noisier for sleeping. This bedroom has an ensuite bathroom that is large and well-appointed (shower).
The boardwalk across the street was easy to access and gave the property a real resort feel. The view is spectacular from all windows. There is a beach close by and good restaurants at the end of the boardwalk. The small aquarium is well-done and interesting for visitors of all ages.

We were able to park six cars in the driveway once but four was the norm for us. The house is easy to find and very accessible to highways and arterial roads.
We found the house to be very clean with sufficient towels in both bathrooms and the kitchen. Check-out was easy and my deposit was returned timely.

In short, this place is a gem.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing

Review submitted: November 3, 2013   Date of arrival: September 1, 2013

Awesome stay. Fantastic view. A great place to stay. We will look forward to staying here again. Salty's is a great place to eat but a little pricey. Wally's Chowder House was very good. Lots of places to go and visit and not too far away. 1st floor toilet needs some attention but all was OK with everything else. The only thing wrong with the place is having to leave. Thank you.

Redondo Beach Retreat

Review submitted: September 27, 2013   Date of arrival: September 16, 2013

Great place to stay. The home was very comfortable and had everything (except a hair dryer) we could ask for. We enjoyed the view from the home, Salty's and Wally's seafood restaurants, taking walks on the boardwalk and in the area, relaxing on the large deck, and visiting the Marine Science Center on the boardwalk. We watched a baby seal resting on the shore everyday until the mother seal would come at night. The location was convenient to Seattle and Tacoma but we rarely left because it was so great just enjoying the home and view.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you so much for your review. Glad you enjoyed your time at the Redondo Beach Retreat and the surroundings with the views and the sea life. It truly is so beautiful out there and the Marine Science Center is very neat and actually is free to the public. Hair dryer has been provided for the house and the running toilet and any other minor things have been fixed. The house also has an iron and an ironing board. Enjoy the stay!
