Comfortable and quiet space in a fantastic location. I was in the area for work but would love to return to Linda’s place when I have time to play.

Response from Linda:
Shelly, we hope you do come back to play! So much to do here: Here are some Recommendations to help you enjoy your stay with us! Romantic Date Suggestions: 1) Take the coastal drive (Palos Verdes drive west) from Redondo to San Pedro to see the entire coastline, then stop for Terra Nea for sunset cocktails. 2) Olympus Stand Up Paddleboarding in the harbor, and then sunset drinks and munchies at the Portofino lobby bar. (not Baleen's) Special Event: Morning and Night, at high tide, visit the beach just below us (“RATS Beach” to watch the dolphins play right off shore. DINING: All located on Catalina Avenue, Riviera Village Chez Melange has fabulous french food, but a bit pricey Casa Playa is a great little hole in the wall Mexican Joint. Check daily specials on weekdays. L&L Hawaiian Grill always good, inexpensive. Check daily specials on week days. Terranea: combine a good ($$$) meal with a beautiful walk on the ocean at the cliffs Perry’s on the Beach (literally, ON THE BEACH, just below the Casita as a bird flies) has good healthy options but you pay for the convenience HIKING: Abalone Cove: check the times for low tide and hike down then for the tide pools Sacred Cove: just south of Abalone cove The trail immediately south of Trump Golf Course: a switchback down, easy hike, and more tide pools! Top of Crenshaw Blvd.: hiking trail starts just north of the park. Spectacular views on this hike, down the side of a canyon and through a valley of wildflowers. Look for the giant bee hive at the first part of the trail, on the opposite side of the canyon, in a hole halfway up the cliff. You may need binoculars to see the activity. SIGHTS AND WALKING Point Vicente Interpretive Center: easy walk, gorgeous views Wayfarer’s Chapel: Frank Lloyd Wright’s glass church, is a great site to see. Korean Friendship Bell: 3601 S Gaffey St, San Pedro, CA 90731 Easy walking with Beautiful views

It's a very nice space in a converted garage. In the winter it gets a bit cold, but the space heater is adequate if left on high long enough.

Barry, We have a programmable heater which turns on and off and heats the space well, which I showed you and offered, but you chose to turn it off and on each time you came back. Other guests are not cold because they allowed me to program the heater for them.

This quiet guest house was just as expected on a long trip, it was intended just for a bed and to keep traveling but the 3 days we were there were great. The host checked to make sure we didn’t need anything, the area was beautiful, beach in walking distance, and best of all a wa…
