  • Fun in Manhattan Beach

    "We highly recommend this beautiful modern home. Alexa is the perfect host and was so very helpful and available for any questions we had. It was even larger than we thought it would be by the photos and fully equipped with everything needed for the beach or a relaxing evening staying in. Would definitely return."

  • Fantastic quiet beach location, surf, fun and tons of sun

    "Our stay at Ambers beach front location was fantastic! My wife and two kids aged 11 and 13 enjoyed the comforts of this clean well laid out beachfront location with large deck. We surfed at Zuma beach daily in the morning with Craig's team at Drill skate and surf shop. Enjoyed a Starbucks coffee and rubbed shoulders with the rich and famous and friendly locals. We shopped at the local grocery store, had great food. I would recommend this location to anyone wanting to experience Malibu, and willing to explore this awesome part of Cali."

  • Our Graduation Weekend

    "This was the first time I have ever stayed in Manhattan Beach and it was wonderful. This house was really awesome!! The view of the ocean is incredible, from both the living room/kitchen floor and the master bedroom. My family of 5 plus my son in law all stayed there comfortably. We were able to do the beach one afternoon and the kids all went in the water, using the bogey boards/wet suits that were in the garage. Plenty of beach towels were there also. Highly recommend this house. Only one comment: if you have AT&T, there isn't good reception. Verizon users had no problems. Also, it was just a block off of the Strand and 2 blocks from the downtown. Great Location"

  • Great Location But Noisy!

    "My husband and I stayed at this unit for 10 days and really enjoyed our stay. Getting to know Santa Monica and all that is offered was eye opening. Being a Northern Cali girl I was a bit jaded in my opinion of SoCal. Since our son now resides in LA we chose this apartment (only approx. 9 miles from West Hollywood) because of it's close proximity to our son. We couldn't have been happier with our choice! There is something to do for just about anyone. Lot's of healthy living on the promenade that runs along the beach. We rented bikes for our stay. Between biking and lots of walking we felt like we got plenty of exercise. People watching was very entertaining. Santa Monica is truly the center of the Universe. A VERY diverse population that somehow coexists with little judgment. Very refreshing! We loved being so close to the 3rd street promenade and boardwalk. Plenty of sights to see and restaurants, shopping, etc., without having to drive and park. If you do park, park at the mall near the promenade -- first 90 mins free and $1 total thereafter! Venice is a must see, at least once. Speaking of plenty to see -- we saw Harrison Ford at a restaurant in Santa Monica one night, and John Goodman on the streets a few days later. That was fun:) As mentioned, the apartment is very noisy so don't stay here if you're looking for R&R. We happened to be there when they were setting up for the Independent Film Awards Oscars across the street in the pkg lot. I was awakened to clanging noises early on Saturday morning when they were unloading the tent materials -- the set up went on for the full week. There are plenty of late night, drunk/stoned people on the street on the weekends, and cars turning around (illegally) right in front of the apartment. The good news is there is an assisted living facility right next door so they're pretty quiet ;) In an nutshell, I would stay here again. Loved the location, views out of the living room window of the beach, sunsets, etc, and close proximity to very busy downtown LA!"
