Great time in S. Manhattan Beach

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in S. Manhattan Beach and really enjoyed the house. I agree with other reviews - great, clean property within steps to the beach and close to lots of nice shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again if going to S. Manhattan Beach.

Location, location, location!! Cute place!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my two girlfriends over Memorial Day weekend!! The location is perfect!! One block from The Strand and 0.4 miles from the main drag Manhattan Blvd. You can walk everywhere and the area is very safe!! It was also very quiet, too. I read a lot of previous reviews before booking this place... I would have to agree that the couches/chairs in the living room could be more comfortable. A nice L-shaped couch would be perfect!! I would definitely stay here again!! Thank you for the great accommodations!!

Great location

  • 3 of 5

Overall this place is good. Great location, nice place. Only real downsides were the couch/living room furniture which was super uncomfortable. Uncomfortable enough that you'd write a review about it. Also no AC, which wasn't a major problem because we were there is October, but you need to keep the windows open, and there is construction nearby. So as long as you are planning on being out at the beach or outside during most of the day, great place. If you want more lounge time inside, maybe less so.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive comments about to the unit. Sorry you felt the living room couch was uncomfortable. This is the first negative comment we received relative to the furniture. Should we receive more such comments we will then have to make some changes. The lack of A/C, which is noted in the amenities section, is generally not a major problem all year around. Up to 5 or 6 years ago it was unheard of to have A/C at the beach. Nights for the most part are cool and usually require at least a long sleeve T-shirt. However, In anticipation of a warmer weather trend we recently installed ceiling fans in both bedrooms. They are quiet and work well in creating a breeze and lowering the room temperature. Most guests want to keep the windows open --- they enjoy hearing the sounds of the surf. The construction is at the end of the street is nearing completion. It creates very little noise as all the work is currently inside. With the new windows closed, which were also recently installed, it’s very quiet inside. Your hosts Bob and Donna

Awesome location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 3-night stay in this 2bdrm, 1bath apt. The location of the apt is outstanding since it is a block from the beach and within walking distance to Manhattan Beach main st.

We were there during unseasonably hot weather...Bob and Donna were great about getting us extra fans (apt doesn't have air conditioning and is on second floor).

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great stay and thanks for the location compliment – we are within easy walking distance to everything. Sorry it was so unseasonably hot. Up to 5 or 6 years ago it was unheard of to have A/C at the beach. Nights were for the most part are cool and usually require at least a long sleeve T-shirt. When you were here it was hot for any season even the summer. The nights did get down to the mid-70s but our usual ocean breeze was missing. We did manage to get extra portable fans (most stores were sold out) which helped considerably especially at night. After that experience, we installed ceiling fans in the bedrooms. They are quiet and work well in creating a breeze and lowering the room temperature. Naturally, we haven’t had any extreme hot weather since the installation. Your hosts Bob and Donna
