Great Location, Helpful owners, amazing experience
"My girlfriend and I recently traveled to LA for the CrossFit Games in Carson, CA. We decided to make a vacation out of the trip and picked Manhattan Beach as the beach of choice. Looked at many properties on VRBO, but it was hard to find one that would take 9 nights instead of 7 or 14. Thankfully The Strand Beach House was just the place. The owners were more than accommodating. Location is even better than the pictures make it look. Interior finishes in the condo are fantastic. The countertops, mini appliances, bathroom, shower, etc. are all high end and very nice. The owners were so gracious with everything they did to make the stay more enjoyable. Using the beach cruisers was a plus. We even returned our car for 6 of the days so we could just hit the beach and ride the bikes and take life down a notch. Very relaxing falling asleep to the waves and waking up to the surfers. Overall a fantastic trip. Highly recommended. Will book again when we travel to LA."

"I stayed here while I was working on location in LA and it quickly became my home away from home!
I worked long hours and it was the most relaxing place to be when I had time off. So quiet when I needed to sleep and so close to the beach so I could take long walks in the morning and enjoy the ocean and sun. It has so many fabulous reading areas. My favorite is the area near the windows facing the walk street. So peaceful. And a fireplace and a hot tub and a grill!
The bed was one of the more comfortable mattresses I've ever slept on and they provide excellent sheets and plenty of towels.
I'm from nyc so being able to walk places is very important to me. I could walk to Abbot Kinney in 5 min where I had many coffee options (blue bottle and Intelligentsia) and great food and shops. Every Sunday morning I would also walk to the Santa Monica farmers market which was 15 min max and a nice walk. I cannot wait to come back! I am almost hesitant to post this review because I want to keep it a secret. The place is also clean and well designed/decorated and the owners are so attentive when you need them but otherwise leave you be.
I will be back I hope in the near near future."

"Had an amazing time staying in the house over Thanksgiving. Chris was an amazingly gracious host, checking in regularly over email/phone. The house was lovely. The location and views are amazing. The beach is just lovely and so private. Had an amazing time and would love to come back! Thanks for everything Chris!"
