Another New Development In Cerritos: Villas De Cerritos Beach

Villas De Cerritos Beach


Villas De Cerritos Beach is a community of four different housing options, all built by one American and all sold full ownership. The four distinctively designed homes are 1)bungalows, 2)palapas, 3)casitas, and 4)condos. Each of these different lifestyle arrangements are within a stone’s throw from each other and share one rec room and pool, but that’s about all they have in common.   Many of the homeowners are Canadian and American snowbirds who rent out their homes when they are not using them. The environment has a rustic, bohemian, laid-back atmosphere, appealing to those who want to embrace a casual lifestyle.

The bungalows are studio style units, each with a small two burner stove, small fridge and basic kitchen utensils. These units have one full size bed. Several of the units have fun outdoor kitchens and several units have a second bedroom available, able to accommodate up to four guests. Many of the units have a rooftop terrace, accessed via a steep spiral staircase.

The Palapas are traditional Mexican palo de arco and adobe style units, with thatched roofs. They have a modern indoor bathroom along with an outdoor shower, and the units include an indoor and outdoor living area that includes a galley style kitchen. You could call it rustic and quaint but comfortable.

The Casitas are the newest units in the community, built just last year. These stand alone, townhouse style homes range from one, two, and three bedrooms and are one to two stories with one to two bathrooms. The open concept kitchen and living areas open up to 800 square feet of landscaped, fenced yards that are great for entertaining and privacy. These homes offer the most outdoor space among all the rentals and many of them come with unique details and amenities. Each home includes a roof top deck for 360 degree views of the beach, the sunsets and the expansive mountain ranges. A number of these rooftops are set up with umbrellas and lounge chairs for relaxing and sunbathing.

The condos are two bedroom, two bath (1,370 square feet) luxury retreats in a three story, six unit condominium style building. The master includes an in-suite bathroom, large closets and pocket doors to the ocean view terrace. The villa is an open concept design with the kitchen opening to a large living/dining area and large sliders opening to the 290 square feet ocean view balcony. Some units have satellite TV, others DVD players and a TV.

From the Villas de Cerritos Beach property, it is a short 10 minute walk to two amazing beaches, surrounded by miles of hiking, walking and bike riding trails. The community amenities include a large pool with a shallow kiddie swimming area, Jacuzzi, a large palapa covered lounge, an on site open air restaurant and bar in the high season, yoga classes, mini convenience store, housekeeping services, free WiFi in the common areas, and 24 hour staff and security. The individually owned homes that are available for rent are posted on the Villas de Cerritos Beach website. Currently there are units available in all four home styles with the bungalows ranging from $50-$70, palapas starting at $75, casitas ranging from $99 to $190, and villas ranging from $125-$190.
