SO SO beautiful! Very nicely decorated ... incredible views from every room! Loved having coffee on the deck, watching the sunset, playing in the water and spending time on the beach. Without a doubt - this is THE place to stay on the beach. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. HIGHLY recommend it ... you will be back again and again. The owner is really nice, very helpful and accommodating, all the details are taken care of when you stay here. You will not be disappointed!
My husband and I stayed here this past weekend and absolutely loved it. As a huge fan of the show it was so awesome to be able to stay there. We rented the second level and it was just amazing! The inside was beautiful, clean and cozy and the bed was so compfy! The view was breathtaking and the owner Gary was the nicest! There were bikes, roller blades, paddle board, BBQ grill and a jacuzzi all to use! We loved being steps away from the beach, and listening to the ocean at night. It was by far the best! We are already planning our next stay!
I have wanted to stay at this property for years after being a fan of the hit show. But never did I expect the most beautiful accommodation that I have ever stayed in. The ocean can be seen from every window in the property. The waves can be heard 24/7 and the property is comfy and homely.
Gary has to be the most genuine and friendly landlord in history and let us check in hours before we had supposed to. He gave us a quick tour of the property, threw us the keys and told us to have fun.... Which we did. We had a hot tub to use, bikes to ride, surf boards to use. It was our home in paradise.
You are right in the middle of Hermosa and Manhatten beach, so there is tons to do, and we didn't have enough time to do all that we wanted.
I cannot recommend this property enough. Do it. You'll never forget it.
Thank you Gary. We will see you next year in both Hermosa and Palm Springs. We are visitors for life!!
Kyle and Gary.
I rented the top floor for my family for a week in mid July. Two bedrooms plus my son slept on the couch, one bathroom a little tight with teenagers but we made it work. Location is perfect, the deck is fantastic and we also used the hot tub, bikes and roller blades. Owner was on vacation at same time but stayed in touch via phone and provided a local contact so no issues. Bottom and middle floors are a little larger so these may be better for larger groups but we used it as a place to start and end the day as we did several local trips. The bottom line with this place is the location which is hard to beat. This would be our first choice if we do it again next year.
I recently stayed at this house (middle floor) for a girls weekend and have to say, this stay exceeded all of my expectations! The owner, Gary, was one of the easiest people to work with...very flexible and accommodating, he will get back to you in a timely manner, answer all necessary questions, and help when needed!
We stayed on the second floor, and it was awesome! There was plenty of room. The neighbors below and above us were GREAT! We ended up making lunches, dinner and breakfast together! Couldn't have asked for nicer people to share the complex with.
The location is UNREAL. Easy walk to both piers, but there are also bikes/scooters to borrow from the house which we used, and it added to the fun night! There was a community deck which we spent all day on, and was so fun to people watch and sunbathe. As for the negative reviews on the street sweeper....yes it comes by at 730 am, but it wasn't an issue at all. It comes, then goes. I would never even consider that being a reason I wouldn't stay at this house.
I would recommend this house to anyone who is ready to have a good time. I would probably not recommend it to people would expect a quiet vacation, just because the location is in a high traffic (people walking on the strand) area so you get a lot of people talking to you, having a good time....which we LOVED.
There was a liquor store, and small grocery store a block(ish) away which was very convenient. Also all of the neighbors were beyond friendly and helpful.
Thank you Gary for the BEST vacation!
I will DEFINITELY be staying here again. I can't wait to come again
I spent 8 nights in the second floor unit. I will share the pros and cons with you. I give this condo 3 stars but if I had two ratings it would be 4 stars for location and 2 for the actual unit.
Location - this condo has beautiful views from almost every window. It is close to downtown Manhattan (.5 miles) and downtown Hermosa (1 mile) so both are an easy walk for dinner or drinks. It is overall just a beautiful place to visit if you have never been to this area.
No security deposit - more money in my pocket and no financial risk on my part.
Flat screen TV (50") in the living room and layout of the unit as well as outdoor space.
Location - If you prefer a quiet or private spot this may not be your choice. Although this is a beautiful location you are directly on the strand (walking and bike path) and it is at a corner where the path continues up stairs. For some reason this is a spot where people stop to chat, stretch and congregate early in the morning. Also the street sweeper comes by every morning around 7AM which is fine except because of the location of the condo it must back up - you know that reverse signal - BEEP BEEP BEEP - every morning! The second floor condo has much more privacy than the first. Recommend the 2nd floor for that reason.
Sewer smell - there is a drainage sewer that flows right under the property. You will smell this at the entryway. Rainy days may be worse.
No security deposit or rental agreement - could have cleared up some confusion about dates.
The pictures in no way represent the condition of the property. Photos must be from years back when it was first renovated. The furniture had stains that had but built up over time. I literally washed the leather couch and love seat and the cloth was black...so instead I put a sheet/towels over all of the furniture. I also took all of the dishes out of the cabinets and put them in the dishwasher. I washed the cabinets because they were very dirty/sticky...again my cloth was black when I was done.
This brings me to the NAVY BLUE sheets on the bed. I had no choice but to wash all of the sheets and towels as well at this point.
There have been many a parties in this unit...and the rugs, furniture and appliances clearly show the wear and tear. Good bones -but Needs TLC, new windows, furniture, appliances etc. to clean it up. There was a contractor on site at least 2 days installing windows (1st floor), sawing and hammering until sunset :(
Summary - Disappointed!
