About Asenka Nitzow

I am European born and educated and got to come to sunny California and live the American dream of living and working in a resort like area which is Hermosa Beach. I am still traveling every year to Europe, so I represent both worlds. I love to share the bottom part of the villa with vacationers that love to enjoy fantastic wheather practically year round, take a walk to the beach and watch the beautiful sunsets or just be active and take part in numerous events our city and neighboring cities, Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach have to offer.

Asenka Nitzow purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Asenka Nitzow chose Hermosa Beach

I have been living in this villa since our family has build it in 2002. Hermosa Beach has been my home since 1986, where I had a business for many years and now I practice Real Estate. Beach Cities and the South Bay are my area of expertise. I love it here because it is the quintessential beach living and working, sunny and warm, beautiful weather most of the time and I am very fortunate to be part of this hidden gem. I practically don't need a car, because everything is in walking distance.

What makes this apartment unique

Our vacation rental is your hide away gem from home. Private, safe, quiet, very central location and is the ideal hub for all your adventures. So many choices - you can keep it local without the car, relax and take it easy, just steps to the Green belt park, minutes from the beautiful large sandy beach.... or you can be a part of the local dynamic scene on the Pier, where most of the events take place. I can help you to get to your points of interest, bike and car rentals are just steps away... Close to the airport, 25 minutes to downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, etc. Additional info for local attractions and car rental provided upon request.

Overall Great!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for an employee. He enjoyed the convenient location to the beach which was very relaxing when he wasn't working. The unit itself is exactly as pictured and very clean and quiet. The correspondence from Asenka was wonderful. She is a very accommodating host and wants you to enjoy your stay. The only downside was parking, but that is always an issue in California from my experience especially if you drive a truck! Thank you Asenka!

The property was very close to the beach( walking distance) few minutes. It was a very cute, clean space and had everything you need to feel at home. The landlord was very welcoming and was available if needed. I recommend this rental as a great getaway time to relax and for me catch up and reminisce with my lovely daughter.

Clean, Quiet, Safe

  • 5 of 5

We found this property to be in a good neighborhood and felt safe walking around both daytime and night. It was delightful to be welcomed by the property owner upon our arrival and she was available any time we had questions. The rooms and facilities were very clean and comfortable. Some grocery supplies were on hand when we arrived. The location was close to the beach communities we were visiting and basic places like drugstores and grocery stores were close.

The only downfall we noticed was that the whole neighborhood suffers from a shortage of parking, both on and off street. Parking places marked in the street were very tight for a standard sized vehicle. Asenka, the owner, was gracious in helping us find parking spaces when we could not find one.

We would not hesitate to rent the facility again if we were in the area. It was very nice to have a nice and accommodating owner on site.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

February 2016

We recently traveled to visit our son in Hermosa Beach for ten days. This home had a great location. Not only was it close to the beach, restaurants and shopping it was only one and one-half blocks from our son's home. The homeowner was easy to work with and very accommodating with our needs.

We would definitely stay there if we were going back.

Our favorite restaurant was Captain Kidd's in Redondo Beach. Great Sea Food!
