Excellent place and supurb property management

  • 5 of 5

The home is in an excellent location and they mean it when they advertise the close proximity of the beach. Staying that close made a real difference to us, who were there with our 1 year old and 3 year old and didn't want to haul beach toys very far. The beds are comfy and the kitchen has everything you need to cook meals "at home." There is not a washer/dryer so plan accordingly.

What stood out to us was also the quick turnaround from the property management company. We booked our trip on short notice and they were extremely professional and responsive. They worked with us on details of travel and gave us great advise (i.e. rent a car small enough to fit in the garage, there was a pack-n-play already at the house).

We also spilled something on the sofa and they helped us get through the process of replacing that with minimal cost and handled it entirely in 2 emails.

There is also a very kind gentleman that lives downstairs. We had little kids running around and were worried they may be making noise early in the morning. It was great to have a friendly neighbor for the 4 days we stayed.

Fall into serenity

  • 5 of 5

Location, Location, Location! Yes, this intimate beach bungalow is in the perfect location just a five minute walk to the downtown. The beach is wide and beautiful without ever feeling as though you are cramped up against your neighbor. The garage is stocked with beach chairs, umbrellas, surf board and 3 bikes so pack light when you come. Beds are comfortable, bathroom and kitchen are sparkling clean. Fall is a beautiful time to come. The weather is still very nice and the crowds have all departed for the summer. I love coming here and want to make this my annual trip. I have been to many beaches in Southern California and Manhattan Beach is by far my favorite!

Slice of Salty Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My favorite part about this beach house is everything! I've rented something near the beach every summer and this is by far is our favorite. The location is key. We walk everywhere and the bikes provided are a real plus. Usually you'd spend $5+/hr The house is clean, bright and comfy. Perfect for a Girls Getaway, a small family or 2 couples. Management company and owner are easy to work with and go above and beyond to make stay perfect.

Amazing location!

  • 4 of 5

The house is perfect for a Manhattan Beach getaway. The proximity to both the beach and the pier cannot be beat, especially at this price. The rental agency was easy to work with and very good on email. The house came with great beach amenities - towels, chairs and toys - which made it a very easy vacation. The downstairs neighbor was a little grumpy about our two toddlers (which explains the 4 not 5 stars), but other than that it was a perfect place for our family's needs. Would absolutely stay there again!

Owner's Response: Our downstairs tenant has "moved on to new locales".... better suited to his academic lifestlyle. In the last year we have improved the soundproofing between units and signed in with a new tenant who is gracious to visitors sharing his local knowledge and laid back beach ambiance. Our MB experience is nothing less than wonderful and both our property managers and the surrounding neighborhood amenities are "heavenly." Life is truly good in MB.
