LOCATION 5 STARS--PROPERTY MAINTENANCE, JUST 3

  • 3 of 5
Unfortunately, I think we caught this property just after transition of owner, or possibly management company. I wish all the owners or managers would stay in their properties at least a week every year so they could experience these details that can really impact the experience of the renter. The photos and description of the property are fairly accurate. Some of the furnishings are a little tired, but that isn't a big deal compared to the other issues. There were 3 maintenance items that, in our opinion, should merit a rebate of at least part of our rental fee. First--the second floor shower leaked into the kitchen ceiling. This resulted in us being down to one tub and one shower for the entire week of our stay---4 women and 1 man, you can imagine. This will require several days to repair, so of course, it couldn't be fixed while we were there. Second--the toilet in the first floor bathroom leaked every time it was flushed. Didn't incapacitate the toilet, fortunately. Third--very unpleasant moldy smell under the kitchen sink, as well as the laundry room. It got so I kept the kitchen trash can outside the cupboard so I wouldn't have to smell the mold every time the door was opened. Unfortunately, there was nothing we could do about the moldy smell wafting up from the laundry room. Fortunately, we spent most of our time on the third floor living room or outside. This most likely will be the toughest issue to do something about. There were several more what I'd consider minor housekeeping issues, but those 3 items were the most bothersome.
Lastly, I have to say--the location of this property can't be beat. My sister & I grew up in MB, in our opinion, being 2 blocks north of MB Blvd & a half block off the Strand was perfect. Close enough for easy access, far enough away for peace & quiet. It was awesome. The size of the property is great, parking is fabulous. After some repairs and attention to details and maintenance, and I would definitely stay here again. Also, the lovely flowers waiting for our arrival were really a nice touch. This is the third VRBO property I have rented, and nobody else has bothered with that kind of nicety.

MOM FROM MICHIGAN

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay in Manhattan Beach but our first to this property. We found it to be the perfect rental for our needs and we certainly hope to return! The house is in a great location - truly steps to the Strand and the lovely beach; just a short walk to all the great restaurants and shops in town.

The property is well appointed, very clean and spacious. It was well equipped with linens, towels, cooking items, etc. So glad to have beach chairs, boogie boards, and towels available. Also, the washer and dryer are large and appear to be new, so the earlier comment about a small washing machine no longer applies. The property manager responded immediately to a minor plumbing issue we encountered and that was much appreciated.

All in all, an excellent experience and I highly recommend this property!

GOOD BEACH VACATION SPOT!

  • 4 of 5
First off, the location can not be beat, 3 minutes to the beach and 5 to shops and restaurants. Overall the place was great, view from the upstairs patio was awesome. House well stocked and pretty clean. My biggest issue was the washing machine, it fit maybe 2-3 towels, which when coming home from the beach everyday with kids it took a while to get the laundry done, sand in everything! I packed for the trip with the intention of doing laundry so that turned out to be more work than anticipated.
I would not recommend this property for families with kids younger than four. The set of stairs to the top floor is a metal, spiral staircase and the railing has big gaps between each other.
Other minor things that bothered me a bit but nothing I couldn't get over, we would stay here again, no problem.

SUPERB LOCATION, AMPLE SPACE, HIGH END DETAILS

  • 4 of 5
My family of four and nanny stayed at this location for 10 days. Overall, we would recommend this property to a family with small children.

Unfortunately the weather did not permit anyone to take advantage of the beach, but the home was beautifully situated to overlook the water. Despite the comedy of errors (no heating on the ground floor, broken oven, minor ceiling leaks, spotty telephone and Internet access), the management promptly responded to every request that was given.

Another nice feature of the property was that it is fully equipped to handle the needs of two infants (e.g. highchair, toys, age-appropriate movies, beach toys, etc.). Originally, I thought that the stairs would be a problem, but the use of common sense alleviated the worry.

Just a word of caution, the length of the garage is rather short. Since we rented a minivan, we had to park the car diagonally in order to fit it. Again, a minor detail but something to consider.

Again, I would recommend this location and would stay here again!
