Terranea is a wonderful place to spend a few days with friends and family.

Terranea is great

My family loved the spot, especially when we saw dolphins from our balcony early in the morning. Beth was very responsive. Will definitely come back again

Great spot for family vacation

This property lived up to every expectation and then some. Travelling with the WHOLE family meant we were looking for a little bit of everything: peace and relaxation, ease and comfort, action, great food, and beautiful accommodations.

We had wonderful service, the location and proximity to the resort amenities enabled us to get full use out of Terranea.

Thank you!

Friendly, accommodating and an amazing experience!!

We spent our son’s 30th birthday and Christmas at this fabulous property with his fiancé and our two other sons. We all had plenty of space and the casita is decorated beautifully. Golf course is steps away and a first class nine-hole par three. We hiked every day and enjoyed the resort’s restaurants and entertainment. We will definitely be back!

Dec 2018

From the moment we entered the property, every staff member was welcoming and helpful. Our every need or want was attended to with a smile and great efficiency. The casita was beautifully decorated and had all the equipment necessary to make our Thanksgiving weekend a fun one. Views of the Pacific Ocean from the balconies were breathtaking. There were so many activities offered to suit our varying tastes and talents as well. We had a lovely dinner at Catalina Kitchen one night. The food was exceptional and the service wonderful. We had a very memorable holiday with our family and highly recommend the condo and property for couples and families.

Luxury vacation with all the comforts of home.

We rented 2 of Beth's places for my daughters wedding. Her units are perfect in every way! The location couldn't have been better. They were spotless and very nicely decorated. They had everything we needed leading up to the wedding and they were the perfect place to enjoy the after glow. I would recommend her places to everyone and so look forward to staying there in the future!

Best place ever!

Beth was totally accommodating and the casitas were lovely! Would recommend for anyone.

Loved it!

We spent our daughter's wedding weekend at this wonderful condo. The location on the property was perfect. It made for a most memorable occasion that none of us will forget. Would not change a thing except maybe stay longer.

The only place to be
  • Oceanside Terranea 30-400s 3-BR Owner's Casita -Great Eastside Location

Read Reviews

We truly enjoyed our daily walks on the resort property, dolphins visible in the cove & our visit to the ocean view paths available to hike to the public, at the other nearby golf resort. The staff at Nelson’s was very friendly for lunch service. The Dinner takeout from the Japanese restaurant was great. We stayed at a unit in bldg 31 with spectacular views. The unit was very clean, the tubs & baths still look new & the beds all very comfortable. We have been visiting terrenea for many years & you can’t beat the views, the solitude/tranquility or the recharge. One thing - pack a few beach chairs if you wish to grab a few hours at the beach, Located past the adult pool, to hear the water crashing on the rocks.

Terrenea is breathtaking

Our family loved our stay at Terranea! The property was beautiful and well maintained, and the host was very responsive. As expected, services were somewhat limited because of Covid, but we still found plenty to do. Highly recommend.

July 2020
Great property and experience

The casita is as good or better than advertised. Great location. Very quiet and private.

Feb 19, 2020
Another great experience

Everything was perfect! VRBO was wonderful at helping me make this just what we were wanting. Our only issue, which we quickly solved, was that I didn't realize that while the casitas were next to each other, that only 2 are connected. Not sure how I missed that but it ended up being OK. Property is beautiful & the Casita was perfect. Property manager was very helpful and quickly responded to our questions.

Great Family Vacation Place!

We had a wonderful stay in adjacent 2 and 3 bedroom casitas. Beautiful oceanfront property conveniently located near family pool, scenic walkway, front desk and restaurants; luxurious resort amenities; responsive and helpful host. Terranea and the Palos Verdes Peninsula will always be special places for us.

Family Reunion and Anniversary Celebration

A wonderful place to stay. We spent a week here with our two girls (9,11) and had no issues with the Casita itself. Very clean. Wonderful views of the ocean and Catalina. It's located very close to the hotel itself so you may hear the occasional couple walking down the main path below from the casita itself. Still very private. Actually worked out well for our kids who enjoyed the main pool which was a short walk away. Please note you can't see any of the pools or hear any noise from them while in the casita which we didn't mind at all. The kitchen came in handy. Most basic utensils are supplied. Only one frying pan though so bring extras if you want to be Gordon Ramsey. Also, no traditional oven which we didn't miss. There is a convection oven which worked great. AC units worked incredibly well and were separately controlled for each room. The hotel is very clean and the staff was all professional. Parking for the Casita was great. Two reserved spots directly outside the casita. Any closer and you'd be parking in the family room. My only comment is their fanciest restaurant Marsel missed the mark a bit. The wine list there was solid. $50 bottles to $2700 bottles of 2001 Mouton Rothchild. The meals didn't come near that level though. Maybe a off night. Stay away from the mixed drinks poolside as well. Mix your own and bring em along. The slide was great for the kids and dad even took one trip down it. The beach cove down below was beautiful but we didn't swim there. Too rocky. Perhaps it's swimmable during different times of the year? I would definitely recommend this Casita. Very nice with a great owner as well.

Very nice Casita

Beautiful, spacious and comfortable. We loved it!

Jul 10, 2018
Great Casita

We are frequent VRBO'ers. It's rare that a property really lives up to the description, but this one really does. Everything was in perfect working order. The beds are SUPER comfy (not that often you find this). Although there's not much extra to cook with (like olive oil and such) the pans/dishes/etc provided are perfectly fine.

The resort is beautiful, the staff super friendly. Location amazing. Not related to this unit, the food at the resort is overpriced and uniformly poor. Think Maui prices without the Maui quality. $6.50 for an ice tea at the pool? I don't mind paying high end resort prices when the quality matches.

Communication with the owner was great. Note that there is an ice machine directly under the unit, I might have missed that in the description.

Highly recommended!

Everything she said it would be

Terranea is a beautiful resort set above the pacific ocean on a bluff on the Rancho Palos Verdes peninsula. It's about 40 minutes from LAX and typically about an hour from downtown/West LA/Santa Monica. Could be shorter, could be longer...depending on traffic. It's the same to South Coast, Newport, etc.

The resort is sprawling and gorgeous. The staff is terrific, and the onsite restaurants are very good.

This casita is a perfect place for a few couple or family to spend some time. Daily maid service, room service, plenty of room to spread out, super comfortable beds and large bathrooms. There is a fully equipped kitchen that you can stock from Trader Joe's, just a mile down the road.

Booking is very easy and check-in is quick.

Here you get privacy and space in a casita overlooking the ocean, with all the benefits of a very nice resort.

Highly recommend this place and look forward to returning!

Great LA Getaway

Our family had a wonderful time at this property location. The casita is spacious, has wonderful decor, and is very comfortable. The views were amazing and our family hiked everyday. The owners have high end appliance that worked well and made making meals very easy. The property is well maintained and clean with daily maid service and gardeners that come weekly to tend to several plants. We will definitely be back, it's a wonderful place to relax and decompress from the hurried pace of everyday life!

Family getaway

We were in need of additional housing options for a conference we were hosting at the Terranea Resort so we ended up having 3 of our high level speakers stay in this casita and they absolutely loved it. Throughout the conference they kept talking about how beautiful it was and how spacious the rooms were. I was able to stop by to check it out and it really was phenomenal....decor is beautiful, the rooms were a great size, views were fantastic, everything was super clean and they even had a little porch area...I immediately became super jealous. :) Also, the location couldn't be better...literally only steps away from the main hotel, pools, etc. I would book this casita again in a second!

Sep 27, 2016
Fantastic Property

Our family spent a great week at the very comfortable casita. It was perfectly located within the resort. Very close to everything and.the views from every room were great. We would definitely plan another trip and stay in the casita again.

We had a great time at this place. The casita was perfect for our family and my wife and kids all had a great time. The location was perfect for the kids with the grass in front and a short stroll to the pool. We have been to Terrenea many times and this is the best location for families.

July 2020
Amazing Time

We were very happy at Terranea. The owner responded quickly to the one request we made and there were lots of amenities in the Casita - everything went smoothly. The property is in excellent condition and clean! Will stay again.

Nov 27, 2019
As described and perfect

What a fantastic last minute getaway! The casita was beautiful, comfortable and spacious. Also in a great location for access to the Vista Pool, Cielo Pool and the main pool and restaurants. Wish we could have stayed longer!!

Aug 3, 2019
Love this Casita!

Fantastically located Casita - has everything you need for a family vacation, plenty of space and short walk to the pools.

We were lucky enough to have multiple pods of dolphins swim past which we were able to view from the balcony.

Jul 15, 2019
Very well located within Terranea

Would highly recommend this casita. We stayed with our two children for 2 nights. The location was perfect for us. Close to the pool and also the walking trails. Check in and check out was also seamless. We have stayed at Terranea many times and this by far was the best. Thanks Beth !

Jun 18, 2019
Great vacation spot

This was the first time staying at this amazing resort. It gives you everything you could want in a vacation. The pool for the kids and water slide kept them busy all day. Lots of families so making friends was easy. The adult pool was wonderful for my wife to relax. Every morning we saw dolphins or whales swimming in our ocean view. You are surrounded by ocean, cliffs and beautiful hills. This truly is one of the most beautiful areas in the entire country!Worth every penny and we wish we could’ve stayed longer. The casita was perfect! Having the room cleaned twice a day was amazing. This exceeded my expectations!

Apr 29, 2019

Overall great experience and I'll be back.

Feb 4, 2019
Great location, Great views, Great unit, Great service

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. I was actually better than advertised. This is our favorite SoCal getaway and will be booking this unit again!

The property was absolutely stunning!

Resort is wonderful. Fabulous food and spa.

Beautiful. As advertised.

I went for a week with my husband and two children - 20 and 17 years. We all head a great time, weather was great, accommodations were wonderful. So much to do, we did daily walks through many trails within and beside the resort. The view from the casita was beautiful. Best vacation yet!

Jul 19, 2018

Beautiful place and hotel

We loved staying at this property! I was perfect for me to get ready with a few others for my wedding and we loved waking up the next day and taking full advantage of the beautiful resort amenities. All of the staff were always friendly and helpful, the rooms were fully equipped with everything we needed and more. Beth was always quick to reply when we were interested in booking and we are so happy that we did!

Relaxing space in the perfect setting

This was a wonderful place for complete relaxation. Beautiful and well-kept apartment (casita), stunning view, and quiet surroundings. The service was excellent. The people at the front desk, the shuttle drivers, the people at the pool - all made us feel that they were happy we were there. The casita has a fully furnished kitchen and dining area, lots of comfortable couches, a gas fireplace, two large TVs, Internet access - all of which made it easy to settle in quickly and comfortably. The daily cleanings and refreshing of towels was nice. Bed extremely comfortable. The owner of the casita was very responsive and accommodating when we were arranging our visit. We'd definitely vacation here again.

Two-days at SoCal paradise.

The casitas are amazing and conveniently located near all the hotel amenities. Everyone had plenty of space to enjoy a little quiet time as well as appetizers and wine together. I highly recommend using Beth and visiting Terranea. I'm looking forward to coming back!

Very nice stay, we rented both units which were as advertised- we would definitely go back!

Casita is well maintained. Beautiful location and resort! Property Manager-Beth was very easy to work with. Would definitely come back again.

Jun 13, 2019
Met all expectations!

Views were spectacular! Housekeeping services were fantastic. Service throughout the resort was just ok. Not overly friendly or welcoming. Very slow to bring food and drinks in the pool areas and restaurants. The executive golf course was beautiful and challenging. The overall resort is incredibly beautiful.

May 17, 2018
Truly, a world class resort.

The casita and resort property were spectacular.  Through VRBO, we rented several casitas for a family reunion.   All ages, 3-77, had a fantastic time including walking over to play a round of golf, stroll through the beautiful property or relaxing at the pool.   They even have a pool just for adults for an extra special treat.   After fun filled days, we were able to go back to the casita, cook dinner and relax watching the beautiful sunsets.   In the morning having coffee on the cliff watching the dolphins play is priceless.    

The layout and size of the rooms in the casitas allow for family to be together and yet have enough space for quiet time.   

We will definitely go back.  Another added bonus was working with the management company who helped make the staycation planning easy.   

I recommend this experience to everyone.

Awesome Family Staycation

Our daughter's wedding took place at a local church & because we had family attending from all over the world, we wanted to stay somewhere special. Boy; weren't we glad we chose to stay here! The location was perfect, casitas were beautifully decorated & being able to prepare for the wedding surrounded by family in such a wonderful setting, was the icing on top of the cake! The owner went above & beyond by having a bottle of champagne chilling in the refrigerator. Now that's what I call Customer Service! Hands down this was the best place we have ever stayed & would recommend it in a heartbeat!

Family Reunion

We rented adjoining casitas for our family for a week and the set-up was perfect. Our daughter and her family of 5 and a guest stayed in one casita and we stayed in the other, each family having just the right combination of privacy and community. The location was conveniently close to the main resort, and the views of the ocean spectacular. The accommodation was in prime condition, and had everything we needed. The owners were most helpful and prompt in answering our questions and requests, answering us even when they were on vacation in Germany. Teranea is a wonderful resort, and we took advantage of many of its features which this rental gave us aces to. We would rent this property again should a similar situation develop.

Sep 21, 2016
Perfect Arrangement

We rented both 3 bedroom casitas for 5 nights before we went into LA for our daughter's wedding. We had a total of 10 people there. These are in an excellent location- amazing view, short walk to the pool, very nice inside. The units aren't directly connected but you just walk down a private, outdoor hallway to go between them. We hired a chef through kitchensurfing.com to come in 3 different times. We hung out in one unit while he cooked in the other unit. It was a great place to stay. This resort is the type you come to and never leave. There is the pool, cove beach, an nature center where they watch whales (we saw LOTS of whale and dolphins right from our deck), etc. Nelson's restaurant was fantastic. We hope to come back.

Our stay at Terrenea was great! Check in was super easy, only thing is the owner got my last name wrong, but that didn't cause too many issues. The casita is beautiful with a great view and easily walkable to the resort amenities. Would stay again

Terrenea staycation

We’ve stayed at this property of Beth’s twice now and loved it both times. You have access to all the beauty and advantages of the larger Terranea resort from a quiet, easy-to-access king suite with its own parking spot. I highly recommend it. We’ll be back!

The property is gorgeous, the weather was spectacular. The service is attentive, polite and on point.

It's a perfect staycation for us! Thanks so much

The resort is heavenly. The communication with the property manager was exceptional. She gave us all the necessary information needed. The only thing I’ll say is to set your expectations before you stay here. When we rented a “casita,” I thought it would have a kitchenette. Or a small sitting area. You know ... like a small house, or a “casita.” However, this is a hotel room. A bathroom and a bed. It was fine since it was just myself and my husband. And it did have a small little balcony where we sat and ate breakfast. But if you expect to have more than 2 guests, you should probably look for a bigger option. But the location is amazing and it has a nice view of the ocean.

Cute little “casita”

My wife and I were amazed at the natural beauty and restoration of the land of Terranea. Simply incredible-truly! Our casita was lovely as well, our beautiful ocean view was a wonderful wake up each morning! We couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you! From breakfast to dinner, each meal was delicious and presented with artistry care. We look forward to visiting for years to come. Well done!

We love Terranea Resort. The resort was fully booked on one of the days we were travelling, so we decided to go with Beth's Guestroom. The room was clean, and just as described. Check in was simple. Communication from Beth was great. I would highly recommend staying at Terranea and renting with Beth. We will be back.

Terranea- Excellent get away

I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at Beth's Casita 30-403 at the beautiful Terranea Resort. The room is wonderfully decorated and the bed is beyond comfortable! There was a large terrace with a table and two chairs which after I arrived my first night, had room service on. It was so lovely looking out at the ocean while drinking a glass of wine and enjoying my amazing salad!

Beth was great to work with and super responsive throughout the booking process. I would highly suggest anyone thinking about a trip to Terranea to consider staying here rather than in the actual resort building!

I will certainly be back!

Great view from the balcony and nice amenities. Spacious room and bathroom and communication with Beth was great. There is a great walking trail for miles along the bluff in and beyond the resort. Beautiful views. Highly recommend. The food at the resort is pricey so if you have a car you can go off the resort for meals. Some restaurants down the street about 1.5 miles.
