Guestbook comments from the owner

++ Original review posted & available on airbnb.com ++



The host, David was very timely and responsive, which allowed us to find, initiate a conversation and book the house in the time it took to drive from LAX to MB.



The house exceeded our expectations. It has obviously been newly redecorated, so everything feels crisp and new, and a aqua/orange color scheme predominates throughout, in to the minutia. The iron matches the knife set which matches the sofa, it's incredible and must have taken serious dedication.



The location is convenient, it's a short walk to the heart of MB and to the beach.



In sum, we enjoyed the flat and the renting experience itself. Highly recommend.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Highland house for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house has a great set up for families as it is two levels. We would put our toddler to sleep upstairs and then utilize the lower bedroom/den. The house is not fancy, but is nicely finished and well stocked. The best part about this house is the location ... it is just a few blocks over from the pier and all the best restaurants and shopping in Manhattan Beach. We would certainly rent this house again!

The rental we've been looking for

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented in Manhattan Beach for years, and are so glad we discovered Highland House . It has everything we want and more: nice size, all the rooms and furniture in top shape, nice patio and deck, a great collection of bikes with locks, even a sound system for my iPhone. We're near the water and Manhattan Beach's excellent coffee houses, shops and restaurants (but not too near). Yes, there was construction, but as mentioned below, it's happening all over Manhattan Beach, hard to avoid, and it didn't bother us much at all. The house has good insulation. Also heat, helpful in February. Dave and Doug were extremely helpful and friendly. We definitely want to go back.

Very disappointed ! right next to construction !!

Very disappointed ! No view to ocean and right next to construction site!!

Owner's Response: There is a lot of construction going on in Manhattan Beach, something we can't control, and unfortunately our neighbor is building a new house. We have notified all our guests of this, but sometimes noise can be excessive. Again, something we can't control. Also, our description doesn't mention an ocean view, possibly our guest may have inadvertantly thought there was. We do feel bad that they didn't have an outstanding experience, because we strive to offer that every time. UPDATE 03/01/16 (construction is partially complete but much less intrusive).

Fantastic Beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Highland House was perfect for my family of 4. Beautiful walk to the beach and everything we needed to enjoy ourselves when we got there. Shops and restaurants just a short walk away, we parked the car in the garage on arrival and didn't take it out for 4 days! We will definitely be back next year.

Great house in Manhattan Beach

  • 4 of 5

This is a classic beach house, great vibe, great location. Just one downside of the the location; there is an incredible amount of construction going on. Right next door is a complete rebuild, across the street from the kitchen window is a rebuild, then on the other side two new roofs are going up, which means during the day it's very noisy, and by the end of the day everything is covered in dust and dirt. They are not supposed to start working until 8:00 am, but they start setting up by 7:30, and not exactly quiet. We usually stayed out during the day so we were OK, but on the days we wanted a lazy morning, it was tough. Fortunately for this house, these are not permanent situations, but if your booking anytime soon, first check on the construction sites.

Great place, great location, great owner

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Highland House during our Easter Holiday break and we were not disappointed with our choice. The house is in a great Location, a couple of minutes to Manhattan Beach Blvd with choices for everything and it's less than two minutes down the walkway to the beach. The place is very tastefully decorated and has a kitchen with everything, including seasonings!

David is super owner/host, provided everything we needed to get in and get set up. The previous guest had taken one of the extra keys and David had in taken care of in no time.

Simply a great place, great ambience in the house, artwork galore and a true "Manhattan Beach Experience"
