Most Relaxing Vacation
Most Relaxing Vacation
My husband and I rented this wonderful property for 10 days and I have nothing but praise for our experience. Our hope was to 'get away from it all' and relax on this vacation - we had no preconceived notions of sightseeing or tourist attractions as we have visited southern California many times over the years. Although there are many excellent features, the big draw for us in choosing this rental was the beautiful outdoor patio/pool/spa area, and we were not disappointed. The location was also ideal and as advertised, within easy walking distance of downtown Manhattan Beach and the Strand - no parking worries! The home itself offered everything we needed to settle in and relax - a fully equipped kitchen, state of the art entertainment system, BBQ grill - you name it. Beach cruiser bikes, beach chairs and beach towels all provided, along with use of the washer/dryer. We biked to the Redondo Pier twice to enjoy the unique atmosphere and fresh seafood there, enjoying the ride through Hermosa and all the way to Palos Verdes one day. The only time we used our car was to visit the nearby Whole Foods and Ralph's grocery store to stock up and savor the fresh produce and seafood that we brought back for grilling and relaxing dinners. Oh, and I must put in a plug for the Manhattan Meats market - friendly, helpful staff and great selection of fresh meats to take 'home' and grill without fighting the traffic. This was our first experience with VRBO and I really can't say enough good things about it. Even though we didn't meet the owners personally, we couldn't have felt more welcome as guests in their home. The caretakers met us when we checked in and oriented us to the home and were available for questions throughout the week and were so welcoming. This home would be ideal for families as well. Thank you Steve and Lynn!

Great summertime retreat at the beach
Great summertime retreat at the beach
My family and I spent a week at the Johnson's Manhattan Beach house this summer, and it was the best vacation ever. I grew up in MB and wanted my kids to experience the magic of being close to the beach in the summer. The location is fantastic, the house is fantastic, and the owners are very friendly, answer emails quickly and are just plain nice to work with. The house is very clean and spacious, and we felt right at home. I have three kids, and nobody felt crowded. The open plan kitchen and dining room were a great space for cooking and dining, and dishes, pans and utensils were easy to find. There is plenty of space for clothing--bathroom drawers, closet space and dressers had all been emptied out for guests. There were computers in the children's rooms, which was handy, and the entertainment system in the living room was excellent--and the owners have left detailed instructions. If anything, the house is much roomier than it looks in the pictures on the website. Everyone in our family was also a big fan of Socks, the resident cat. He's very laid back, but he likes to hang out near where people are. The saltwater pool and jacuzzi are amazing. The pool area is beautifully designed and the landscaping compliments the space. There is plenty of outdoor seating and there is plastic wear on hand for poolside beverages. My family went to the beach every day, and the beach is just a 5 minute walk away. There were boogie boards and beach chairs at the house, too. My younger kids boogie boarded every day. Also within 10 minutes' walk is downtown MB, with retail, restaurants, and the classic Manhattan Beach Pier. Grocery stores are within walking distance as well, or a 10 minute drive if you want to go to Whole Foods. The owners leave a sheet of restaurant recommendations. As an MB native, I really appreciated the low-rise, low-key character of the house. It's quite roomy without feeling ostentatious, and it's is very much in keeping with the original character of this very special town.
