We are unique in that the location is convenient to virtually every LA destination, yet you will enjoy quiet peace and privacy once you enter from the gate or front door. This is a true original California bungalow in every respect, with avocado, lemon, olive, apricot, apple and lime trees, berry bushes, and a mediterranean landscape full of herbs and all kinds of fragrances. You can walk to the mall and dozens of other retail and dining destinations, but when you're at our place you'll feel like you're in your own oasis. You and your guests will enjoy the best of linens, furnishings, and amenities, with all the benefits of a nice hotel and a fully equipped home. If you need anything during your stay, our staff is a phone call away to assist you.

About Martha Newman

The husband is an architect. The wife is an artist. What could go wrong? To the original classic bungalow we have added a second bathroom with a jacuzzi , an outside shower, and a deck for the french doors we installed in the main living room.

Martha Newman purchased this bungalow in 1995

Why Martha Newman chose North Redondo

We came from San Francisco in 1988 and moved around until we happened on the South Bay. One week later we moved there. The beach community is the right home for us. Hard to believe we are in a metropolis with the quiet small town vibe here. Friendly neighbors, friendly restaurants and bars, and a 16 mile concrete band, the Strand, that borders the beaches and marinas all the way to Venice beach - great for bicycling or leisurely walking.

What makes this bungalow unique

Our community was designed with small curving streets that heightens the neighborhood feeling. You will have complete privacy while being really close to everything that is LA. Redondo Beach is a model city, with near perfect year round weather, comparatively little traffic, and countless eateries and other venues for fun seekers. Once your skin is sun kissed and your belly is full, it's just a few easy minutes back to our Sweet Haven to watch your favorite TV show in our jacuzzi, then have a glass of wine by the fire. Each bedroom and both living rooms have their own TV's, so you and your guests can choose their own shows. There is almost as much outside living space as indoors, with various spots to enjoy the fruit trees, song birds, and organic gardens.

Fantastic family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this charming and quirky home. We stayed here to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday, and this home met the needs of all the ages. The enclosed back yard and patio were great for letting the kids play while the adults chatted and barbecued. The kitchen has all the tools to prepare delicious meals, with an amazing assortment of dishes, pots and pans, and even spices and kitchen staples such a flour, sugar, salt, and pepper. The beds are comfortable, and the host responded to all of our questions. The house is close to super markets, Target, and we drove to Veteran's Beach and jumped in the waves. We loved admiring all the murals, masks, and sculptures scattered around the house. We loved our stay here, and look forward to returning in the future!

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

Mr and Mrs Newman,

My husband and I can't thank you enough for allowing us to rent your very comfortable home. We got married and had our reception the weekend of Nov 10th. The weather was warm during the day but chilly at night. The artwork ALL AROUND THE PROPERTY was one-of-a-kind. The main question that was asked by all of our guests was, WHERE DID THEY COLLECT ALL OF THE MASKS in the family room??!!! I bet you have stories upon stories of that collection. The home was spacious, the neighborhood had plenty of parking. We enjoyed most of our time outside in the HUGE back yard. We hosted a bbq and made so much food and had plenty of pots and pans to use that was provided to us. We housed 6 people total, which was our family who flew in from Louisiana and they were blown away by the beauty of this property. Even sitting on the front porch was so relaxing! We loved everything that was to offer. We can't thank you enough for the great rental, and the location!

Owner's Response: I was ecstatic reading this review, we did pull out all the stops for your special weekend so I am so glad it worked for you. I am an artist and a "picker" and a traveller too, so thus the masks and eclectic finds that you appreciate. Some folks who think that brown and beige are the only colors to decorate with don't "get" me but your crowd clearly does! Gotta love Louisiana, I have so many ties there. Please make our California home a regular stop on your journeys, and visit our places in Joshua Tree California, Wimberley Texas, and Cape Cod Massachusetts for equally wonderful accommodations! and may your first holiday season as a married couple bring you every happiness. cheers always, Martha

Family Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This house was conveniently located in my brother's neighborhood, so easy access to family activities and other family members staying near the beach. We were quite comfortable in this quiet residential area, very close to Costco, groceries, and church. The house is a sunny, spacious place with lots of cheery, colorful artwork. Air conditioning worked well, with ceiling fans as an alternate. My mom enjoyed playing the piano, and we loved the selection of books and media. Wish we had had time to use the large yard and barbecue area. Maybe next time!

Fun property, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed exploring the art on the walls, and eating out in the garden. The grassy yard was the perfect area for our toddler to play. While we were in the area, we went to Cedars-Sinai Hospital, Universal Studios, Disneyland, and the beach. Everything was easily accessible from the home. We had a great trip and would certainly stay here on future visits.
