We just enjoyed 10 days in the 2 BR Beachfront Condo, while dropping our son off at UCLA. There were 3 of us..my wife, myself, and our teenage son. We decided to try a beach rental instead of a comparably priced hotel. We would definitely do this again.
* Excellent location. Oceanfront. The beach is right outside. Free parking. This may not sound like much, but definitely a benefit (Note: the condo parking is very tight, especially if you have a large vehicle). Easy access. Minutes from LAX. Walk to shopping/dining, Venice Boardwalk, Abbott Kinney, Santa Monica pier, etc.
* The property manager, Patti, always just a text away, to help and answer any questions/issues that arose. She was also helpful in local recommendations, including the bike rentals that we definitely too advantage of.
* The condo was extremely comfortable. Great size. More than enough room for us. All of the conveniences of home. Fully furnished, came with everything that we needed. Beds were great. Came with wi-fi, cable in all rooms, etc.
* Noise from upstairs unit can be annoying. You can definitely hear walking around the entire unit. This was the only reason we gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
OVERALL: We would definitely recommend this listing. It absolutely met expectations for a beach rental. A good value overall, and great alternative to staying in a hotel.
