About Carla and David Brown
David and Carla Brown are the owners who live in the front house on the property. David is an attorney with his own law practice in Redondo Beach and Carla manages the law office as well as their investment properties. David went to school in Portland, Oregon and Carla was born and raised in Texas until moving out to California in 2000. They are avid travellers and have stayed at many VRBO and AirBNB's all over the world.
Carla and David Brown purchased this Guest House in 2014
Why Carla and David Brown chose North Redondo
We love being by the beach, and wanted a place that is close to the airport, the law office and the 405. This is the best of all worlds. We are eight minutes from the beach, fifteen minutes from the airport, five minutes from our office and five minutes to the 405 that takes us to downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Malibu, etc.. Life is good here in the beach cities.
What makes this Guest House unique
We had a vision for this property. We wanted a cape cod look and feel. We remodelled in 2016 and were able to achieve our goal for the most part. It is still a work in progress. We like to take our time and add unique touches whenever we find something that we love during our travels. We remodeled the back house first, and lived in it while we renovated the front house. We grew very fond of the back house after we added our special touches to it and decided to just keep it for the use of friends and family when they visited us. However, the house sits vacant in between visits and it is hard for a property to just sit without being used. That's when we decided to rent out the back house through VRBO when it is vacant. We use the income from the rental to put back into the property. We were recently able to give the guest house exterior a face lift and installed a putting green to the back yard for our guests' entertainment. We are always looking for ways to improve the guest house experience and welcome suggestions from all of our guests.

Great find in Southern California!!!
The owners truly made our stay a breeze - with a stock of essentials there for our use (milk, soap, orange juice, croissants - anything we need was already stocked)- it made our stay like home! The backyard has a brand new mini golf area that our kids absolutely loved! Best VRBO stay by far - thanks Carla and David!
I have stayed at many rentals, but none with this level of attention to detail and generous amenities. This will be by far the best review I have ever written! The hosts met us as we drove up and carried our heavy suitcases up the stairs, which was much appreciated. There is a big driveway, so we never had to worry about parking. The unit itself is so pretty and so comfortable. The beds were so soft, with very nice linens. here were loads of extra blankets, super clean white towels, pillows, and huge closets to use. Carla has thought of every detail, and I especially appreciated all of the extra toiletries. (The last rental I stayed at didn't even leave me a bar of soap) The kitchen was stocked with every appliance we could possibly need, along with a full spice assortment, a huge new bottle of olive oil, and some beautiful cookbooks. We were also treated to a fridge with bottled water, orange juice, chilled sparkling wine, assorted condiments, and 2 dozen fresh eggs. On the counter, we were greeted with a bottle of red wine, chocolates, a huge cansister of Keurig pods, enough croissants for breakfast for 3 days, and individual pots of jam. The houses are close together, but we spent a lot of time outside and didn't hear any neighbor noise. There is a dog in the house behind the apartment and I did not hear him bark ONCE, he was a very good boy and paid no attention to us. I was a bit worried about the proximity to the airport, but this just shows I don't know much about LA and how it's laid out. The house is not near the flight pattern so I only heard one plane the whole weekend. I was also surprised by how close the house is to Manhattan Beach, just a few minutes to awesome restaurants and a gorgeous beach. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Highly recommend the Rendonda guest beach house! This rental was immaculate! It was very spacious for our family of 4. The decor was lovely. Great home base for our LA sight seeing. Carla and Dave are great property owners and very accommodating! They stock the rental with everything you need for a comfortable stay. They also stock the fridge and kitchen with some essentials to get by so you have snacks when you arrive. There are crossiants, milk, eggs, OJ, sparkling wine for mimosas, coffee and creamer ready for your first morning. Loved this rental and highly recommend!
Carla and Dave make you feel right at home. Beach chairs, cooler, and even a basketball. Great place had a lot of fun!
Cute apartment! Close to airport & beach!
Nice option close to beach and airport. Good for one couple or small family. Well stocked & clean. Quiet neighborhood.
A nice property with many up-to-date needed items.
There are three places outside for sitting (when it is not raining). Very comfortable beds. House was very clean. Owners left some welcoming food (milk, eggs, OJ, etc.) in the fridge which was very nice for us as we didn't have a car and didn't want to go out in the rain to find food. The house is very unique, up-scale more than others we have stayed at: lots of pillows, large TV with many features. It was truly a "real" house above a garage area with off street parking for one car. Owners super kind. Laundry area we could use. Very nicely decorated. It was as well stocked as my own house with the things you need in a home. Full bath in the corridor and a half bath in the master. Carla met us and showed us around and was easily available, if needed. I rate it 5 out of 5!! There was not one thing that we needed and couldn't find in the house.
