Why ELS inquiries chose Los Angeles County

I love the beach air and beach town atmosphere. It is what drew me to California in the first place. There is no better place to experience all that Los Angeles has to offer.


What makes this house unique

The sights and sounds of the ocean waves crashing on the shore. Close to everything in LA and minutes from the airport, Venice beach and Santa Monica.

Disappointing but doesn't have to be

  • 1 of 5

This rental has all the potential of first rate beach vacation spot, with none of it realized. The view and setting are outstanding. The accommodations are chintzy and falling apart. We reported the torn and hanging window shades that greeted us, and right away had to start a list. But we gave up on watching television, locking the door, loose bathroom tile, tubs not draining, difficult shower mechanism, the one-half towel per person with no bath mats, the flea market kitchenware (we bought paper plates and plastic cutlery), no wine glasses, frozen ice maker, peeling kitchen sink, burned out light bulbs everywhere including the outside entry light at the top of steep steps, lousy dishwasher, tripped out electricity, rusty beach chairs, you name it. Fortunately the extension ladder works so that we could get in through the balcony when the faulty door code mechanism locked us out. Reporting the shortcomings we would have spent the entire time there on the phone and with repair people in and out. Apparently the house is going to be torn down and replaced, but that is no excuse for not providing any amenities and few basics, especially at this price. Too bad. We would have loved it!

Owner's Response: I am sad to read this review as reviews matter in any business. But I think that the review was bad because we refused to fall for the tricks of Ann's husband who was trying to find some issues and get a refund. Those of you who run a business are probably well aware of customers trying to extort funds from you with the threat of writing a bad reviews and many times bring back half used merchandise. The window shade had no tears till that morning as per the housekeeping but somehow this tenant reported it shortly after entering the unit. Since we were not sure if the housekeeping caused the ripping or this tenant did, we did not blame the tenant and refunded the full security deposit after they left. We also allowed a late check out as they had requested. They paid $2250 for a five night stay ($450/night average) at a 3bdr unit at the upper level of a duplex on the sand in Los Angeles, which will probably be the cost of a single bedroom rental in a hotel in such a location. 'Shutters' in Santa Monica, starts at $489/night for one room and then you pay for all the food and drinks as well. This unit is about 1500 sq ft and has 3 bdr/2bths, a large family room / dining area, a kitchen, a standing only balcony and a patio on the sand with chairs, table, beach umbrella, firepit and barbecue. And it comes with almost guarenteed daily gorgeous sunsets over the Pacific ocean and Santa Monica Mountains. The tenants did not report any further issues till the night of May 15th as they were scheduled to check out on the 16th and the husband wanted a refund. What I don't understand is how come they did not report any problems except the ripped shade and the excessive ice in the freezer, till four days after they checked in. And there was no reason to go into the unit through the balcony with a ladder, when we do have back up keys in the lock box and Ann's husband was given the code for the back up lock when he called with the electronic lock problem on the May 15th night. Just because we do intend to rebuild the unit in a couple of years (that is how much time the permits and approvals take), we are not ignoring the unit as we ourselves spend quite a few days there. We have replaced the lock on the door since and replaced the cable box as well.

Very good

I stayed in the property for two weeks. The place is ample, clean and well located. I had a minor problem with the water and was immediately fixed. Myself and family fully enjoyed our stay.

A spectacular place to stay, we had the perfect ho

  • 5 of 5

We had booked the holiday in order to meet my son who was journeying from New Zealand, we travelled from the UK and LA was approximately half way. The place was perfect, quiet but with enough shops and places to eat. The house was spectacular with its position on the beach. Every day myself and my grandchildren would walk to the water and watch the Pelicans. The apartment was light, clean and spacious and had everything we required for our stay. It was comfortable and practical and that suited us with the two children. Customer service was excellent with all communications answered promptly, and clear directions which were very helpful and made the trip stress free. I would definitely recommend the apartment and Playa del Rey as a place. We have only the happiest memories of our stay there.

Disappointing Experience

  • 1 of 5

Unfortunately, me and my family were very disappointed with the experience. The first disappointment was when we arrived, we discovered that the place is an upper unit without direct access to the beach and without any access to the patio on the sand. We felt the pictures were misleading in that respect, and I strongly feel the unit description on the website should've mentioned that. The second issue was that there was no hot water when we arrived. I called the contact number provided, and they sort of fixed the issue - the unit had two bathrooms that neither had hot water at first, but then only one had hot water after I called about it. The third issue we noticed was cleanliness of some parts of the unit. Another issue was one of the beds was very squeaky that made it practically unusable. Also, I would not call this unit completely renovated, although, some parts are updated. Finally, I felt that the people managing this were not pleasant to deal with. Disappointing experience.

Beach Treasure

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent three glorious days at this property on the beach. You can't get any closer to the ocean without getting wet! The owner was amazing: very attentive to our needs and questions, very cooperative and welcoming. He went above and beyond our expectations! The accommodations have been updated; the house is spacious, clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The area offers great amenities within walking distance, and an unbelievable expanse of clean, white sand and ocean views. We are already planning our next visit. This is a must-see and stay in the Southern California area!!! Many thanks!!!

Great location. Inferior accomadations.

  • 1 of 5

My first time to California, from the East Coast, with my family and we wanted a nice place on the beach to spend our time in. I selected this unit because the reviews were positive, the pictures looked great and the view and proximity to the beach were perfect. The managers, of the property, were very prompt at answering and addressing all of our concerns, so we felt comfortable renting out the unit. Unfortunately, when we arrived we were extremely disappointed to find the unit, in total disrepair and what appears to be years of neglect. They must have taken these pictures right after a remodel. There were so many things wrong, but I will mention the most important ones. The stove did not work. It turned on and off on it's own. Couch was heavily soiled with stains. We had to purchase plastic flatware, plates and cups since there was only 1 place setting and one glass for eight of us. Pots, pans etc, were so badly worn, we could not use them, so we had to purchase our own skillet. Ants everywhere! Barbecue grill, old and not useable. What we did have: Plenty of towels and a great view of the Pacific ocean. Neighborhood was also nice for bike riding and was convenient to everything. As soon as we arrived, I called the management, who acknowledge that they were already aware of the issues I reported, by other renters, but claim they could not be addressed due to a busy season. They assured me that they would contact the owners to see what they could do. She offered to have the stove fixed on the last night of our stay, however, I refused because by then, it was too late and I didn't want our last stay to be interrupted by having to stay in the unit while a repair person fixes the stove. The next day, I did not hear back. I called again, after the trip, to see if the owners responded. Management apologized again and said they would get back to me. They did not. To date, I have not heard back from anyone. I never had to write a review before because every place I have stayed in the past was pleasant and what I expected. This was the exception. If you are thinking of renting this top unit and you already live in California, you should inspect the unit yourself prior to booking. Unfortunately, we did not have the luxury. I believe this duplex is also for sale, so they probably are not concerned about it in the long term.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry that this guest felt that the place was not in the same condition as the photos and was not able to fully enjoy their stay. We have addressed all of the issues that were mentioned in this review, as well, we are in talks with the guest to come to an agreement that will settle the issues of which they believe were accommodations that did not meet their expectations. We practice our business with the highest level of integrity and service to our guests and unfortunately, there are instances where someone is not completely satisfied; we, as a business, make adjustments to address these inaccuracies. We are a small business making a name for ourselves in the vacation rental industry and it is our mission to take the feedback, good and bad, from all of our guests to make each experience better. We again apologize for the way this guest and their family feels their experience lacked and are working even now to make things right.
