Our home is on a quiet, tree-lined street, close enough to all that Los Angeles has to offer, and far enough away to just sit back and relax. 15 minute walk (0.8 mile) to the Redondo Beach Pier; 2 miles to the Del Amo Fashion Square, with 18 movie theaters, 9 restaurants and hundreds of stores of all types; 3 miles from the Hermosa Beach nightclub scene; 9 miles from Los Angeles Int'l Airport; 22 miles from the theater district in down town Los Angeles, Hollywood and Santa Monica; about 30 miles from Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain and Universal Studios amusement parks. Plus so much more to see and do. The beach has a 22 mile walk and bike path.
Something about ourselves
Greetings! I'm Tom and my lovely wife is Joanie. We recently retired and are are ready to see the world! We have exchanged internationally to Australia, Ireland and Spain, and domestically to Tucson and Sedona, Arizona and Big Bear Lake and Sunnyvale, California. We thoroughly enjoy the home exchange experience. We hope to visit Venice, Italy for a week or two in late August through early September, 2013, and experience World Cup in Brazil in 2014 where we honeymooned 27 short years ago.
