Guestbook comments from the manager

We very much enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect. We spent our days on the beach and enjoyed late afternoon walks along the strand down to Hermosa Beach. Having a garage parking spot was fantastic. We didn't move the car after we arrived. Restaurants were either in walking distance or a short Uber/Lyft ride away. The unit suited us well and was as expected based on the pictures. Clean, comfortable and well appointed with towels, etc. Thanks so much. We would definitely rent again in the future.

Owner's Response: Hi Nancy, you said you figured out the television after we I am a bit confused here. The shower did not work? I have tested both and they didn't let me know. Both beds have complete linens. I explained where the laundry was located on the other side of the condo....we did not advertise any cleaning services during your stay, but of course before your arrival and after is always standard. I wish you would have contacted me in regards to these issues you've mentioned because I could have helped immediately......

the strand house is a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderfully stay in the Strand house this February. The apartment is very well equipped, well maintained and only a couple of meters away from the walk that goes for kilometers right at the beach - from Manhattan to Redondo Beach. Just gorgeous. I already reserved to go back to this great place with very friendly owners in October.”

Basic accommodations but comfortable. Dark and a little airless (ground floor and back of building).

  • 3 of 5

Property is well located for access to the beach, has basic but complete outfittings (wifi, TV, heaters and fans) and was neat. It could use some upkeep (slider windows that don’t slide and are dirty, cracked cooktop and sticky cabinets). Overall it’s a reasonable property for the price.

Owner's Response: Hi Katherine, I'm not sure why you said the unit is in the back of building, because it is actually in the front. Our cleaning crew closes all the blinds after cleaning, did you open the blinds? There is plenty of light in this unit so I'm a bit confused about this.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Very clean. Lots of room. Two lovely bathrooms. Great beach getaway. Even has a packnplay for baby. Loved being able to walk to beach and restaurants. I would stay here again. We were three 60 year olds and this place was perfect for us!!! The owner was lovely and very responsive. Lots of fans and even a heater if it gets chilly. We didn't need either. Beautiful November weather. Garage was a real plus.

What a great location!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to stay in a great location close to the beach, this is it! Manhattan Beach is a great little beach community with many fun restaurants and shops all within walking distance of the apartment. The communication with the property manager was great, very clear instructions from the beginning until the end. The property was very clean and nicely laid out. It was really great having two bathrooms and two king size beds! Also great having beach towels provided. A garage with a parking spot is also a plus! and being this close to the beach and the Strand, priceless! I will definitely stay here again!
