We loved our nearly 3-week stay in this home. The owner and her assistant went out of their way to make sure that we were comfortable, responding promptly to our requests. They were great at recommending places to go, including some tips about Manhattan Beach that only insiders would know. The neighbors were friendly and helpful too. As it was just my husband and I staying there, we enjoyed being able to spread out. Also we appreciated the large kitchen and its amenities - especially the large fridge with icemaker. We found the dishwasher a little hard to operate at first but soon got the hang of it. And we thought that the availability of premium cable channels was a nice touch.
