Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: LAX-Los Angeles International - 30 minutes/$30 by Uber.

Quiet residential suburb with mature trees and older, smallish homes on a cul-de-sac. Adjacent to a small Catholic university, MaryMount California University (www.marymountcalifornia.edu) where neighbors are welcome in their cafeteria during school sessions. (This was actually a deciding factor in buying this house!). The students live at another campus, so there is no noise from the campus.

The Palos Verdes Peninsula is a hill, with our house at 900+ feet above the ocean. This gives us an unobstructed view from nearly every room. Ten minutes down the hill, the fishing town of San Pedro is the entrance to the I-110 highspeed motorway to the airport and downtown Los Angeles (about 40-minute drive. Although a car is needed for access to grocers and other shops (10 minutes away), one guest walked the route through a nearby park and stayed weeks without a car.
