Perfect house, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We have never been to Manhattan Beach before and we were not disappointed! The house was adorable, clean, and in a perfect location! We didn't need a car at all! The beach and overall area is beautiful and with the beach cruisers it's about a 10 min bike ride into the downtown pier area where there's just about every kind of restaurant and shopping you can think of- not to mention the bike path is all along the beach with a beautiful view! We were so happy this rental worked out on such a last minute vacation! Beautiful place and we hope to stay here again soon in the near future! :)

Fabulous beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Manhattan Beach was very last minute. We had arranged another place which did not meet our standards and had to leave unexpectedly. Luckily, this adorable place came up for a fantastic deal. The place was utterly charming, clean, and close to excellent restaurants and the beach. We loved our stay and would not hesitate to stay again! My only recommendation would be to provide more basics - i.e. shampoo/conditioner, coffee, tea, ketchup and what not. We are used to places that have those basics and thus did not come prepared. Other than that, no complaints! Fabulous place.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. We had a last minute cancellation so it allowed us to offer it at a very good rate! Typically our rentals are longer than one week so we generally only provide the basic toiletries to get our guests started. I think it's a good idea though to have some basic kitchen supplies on hand so I appreciate the feedback.

Best California Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 7 day stay in Manhattan Beach. The location of the beach house was perfect - close to the beach; an easy drive or bike ride to other beaches; grocery stores and shops and to other parts of LA County. The upper unit was perfect for the 2 of us, although it does sleep 3 with the pull out. It had everything we needed in terms of amenities including great wi-fi and full cable TV not to mention it was very clean, and charming! If there was one small thing to improve it would be access to the bikes as most days we didn't have the large bike for our use as the tenant in lower unit used the bike weekdays all day. I would definitely consider renting this property again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback Anju. We're so glad that you enjoyed your time by the beach. I appreciate your comment about the bikes. Typically it hasn't been an issue with the bike sharing between the two units but we will look at keeping the bikes separated and have two for each. We hope to see you again next year!!

Great beach house vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 5 day stay at the Manhattan beach house. The upper unit has everything you need (kitchen, towels, linens) and with included access to bikes and beach items it was ideal for us. The place is well decorated, clean and incredibly charming. We loved the back patio and the upper balcony. The location is prime, quiet and close to good restaurants in Manhattan Beach. We loved it!

Our 2nd stay – A great find & a great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 2nd stay at this rental home in Manhattan Beach! And here’s what I really liked & appreciated about the home & the benefits of staying there: It’s in a great neighborhood; friendly neighbors, just felt “safe” there. A major convenience: You have a place to park! Don’t have to go find a parking spot on the street. That’s a plus, especially when you’re coming in late @ 2am!! The location is great b/c it’s a block from the beach, the Strand & the bike path!! What more could you ask for! Luv the “Strand” for walking, getting exercise & enjoying the ocean view… taking photos of beautiful sunsets.....

Our daughter did comparison price shopping for a rental in the area. This home was the best: their rates are fair, the same as their competition EXCEPT the competition does not have a private patio! We enjoyed several meals out there. Another convenience is: the washer & dryer in the laundry room is right next to the kitchen. The owners provide bikes for cruising on the bike path, very thoughtful! My husband & I also enjoyed the swing on the front porch!

If you’ve never been, Manhattan Beach is the best! You’d never know it was in L.A. It’s a sweet community & very convenient w/lots of restaurants & a stone’s throw for L.A. airport. The owner is really nice, easy to work with. This 1 bedroom home works perfectly for the 2 of us & that’s where we’ll stay on our next trip to L.A!!!
