Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! I stayed for 3 nights in the bachelor suite with my daughter (toddler) and mother and it absolutely perfect! It's spacious, nicely decorated and he owners were extremely nice and welcoming and easy to get a hold of if I had a question. Everything is within walking distance, from a pizza parlor/convenience store right around the block (3 min walk), to grocery stores, the pier, etc. The home was stocked with everything that you would need from towels, extra linens, extracurricular activities (bikes, body boards, sand toys) and everyday essentials for kitchen use. The owners also provided a binder with very useful information and suggestions. The weather was amazing when we stayed but being from Las Vegas we are used to a cold house. The bachelor suite did not have AC but was very well ventilated to allow the awesome beach breeze to cool you down. There was also a fan in the bedroom that we used, but if you're staying here, you should be outdoors on the beach or sight seeing, so no need to worry about not having AC! The property had a one car garage for the bachelor suite which was a bit difficult for me to get in and out of with my suv but that is only because it is a larger auto and I am not the greatest at small spaces but we had no issues whatsoever and the fact that you are able to park your car in a secure garage just makes it that much more convenient. I would definitely stay here again and only hope that the next time that I do, I am able to rent the larger home because I am sure the views from up there are amazing, even though we still had amazing sunset views on the floor patio. If you're considering staying at this location, do not hesitate, it is amazingly worth it and you wont be disappointed. Thanks for the wonderful time!

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

This house had it all! Beautiful décor, amazing views, perfect location, spacious, and fun for all! There were 10 of us and it could not have been more accommodating. We have stayed on and around The Strand at least 8 times in the past and this place was by far the BEST. We took a 20 minute cab ride from LAX to the house and rode bikes everywhere. We never used a car until our cab ride back to the airport after our weeklong stay. We played volleyball right outside the house and biked to nearby stores, restaurants, and entertainment within a few minutes. The rooftop terrace is really special as you have privacy and yet can still see all that is going on around the area and the beautiful sunsets each night. We loved the cool breeze coming through all the sliding glass doorways each day and the sound of the ocean lulling us to sleep each night. Bill was easy to deal with and everything we needed to know was written in a folder for us. We never had to call the property manager for a thing, although she did call us to check in. We look forward to returning to this property in the future!

beach stay

  • 5 of 5

Our trip here was fantastic! Location is unbelievable- everything is within walking distance and is right on the boardwalk and beach. Patio was wonderful for sitting outside and relaxing. So accommodating - Owners let us use beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, and best of all beach cruiser bikes. We were able to bike all the way past Manhattan Beach to Redondo Beach. The Bachelor Suite was more than what we were expecting- super clean, spacious, and amazing views. Large Kitchen and more than enough room and sleeping areas. Garage was also provided. Owner was extremely accessible and returned text/email/phone calls right away. Cant wait to come back next year!!!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We rented Bill's place for Labor Day, 2013. It is a great place. Great location, great decks (including a rooftop). And Bill was very easy to deal with. My cleaning deposit was promptly refunded, and all of the instructions were right on. We did have a very hot weather weekend and there is no AC. But with the windows and doors opened it cooled off, and we know it was unseasonably hot that weekend.

All in all a great place and I recommend it.

Owner's Response: This Labor Day weekend Friday, was the hottest day of the year! There is no air conditioner in the house since it is very seldom needed. There are windows and doors in the front and the back of the house that let the ocean breeze blow through out the house. There is a forced air heater for the Winter months.

Bill, the owner is such a great guy. He will take good care of you.

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion and decided to rent a beach villa at Hermosa beach, CA. After reviewing several sites we decided to rent this one and proceeded with the paper work. Bill who owns this place was so great in helping us with the payment and deposits. He was very flexible and down to earth and we felt very relaxed about this whole deal. After arrival, we found the house professionally cleaned and in good condition. There was enough towels and blankets to house all 10 of us. The house is beautiful with several exterior decks as well as rooftop for star gazing. We had a wonderful time there and after our return trip we received our deposit back on time. We plan on going back again . We highly recommend this place.
