So thankful I found this fabulous gem - added so much to our vacation
"Visited from Boston with my 13 year old granddaughter in July. Can't say enough for the hospitality of Ben and Javier. Really made our vacation extra special. How boring an impersonal hotel would have been. Ben went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. The location was perfect for us. Universal, Warner Brothers, catching tour busses, all the Hollywood "sights" were so close yet we were ensconced in this quiet, lush backyard with its amazing pool. And how we loved the brilliant Bella and Frankie always ready with a warm welcome, a tail wag and sweet doggie kisses (if you want them!) Ben has no idea how much he added to our very special California vacation. Would never stay anywhere else if we were lucky enough to come back!"

"Enjoyed our stay and first trip to California! Great location!! We would definitely stay here again. I think it was unusually warm during our stay, might want to keep additional fans on hand. We didn't call the owner to request any fans, probably should have. Easy access to the beach and places to eat. Sunsets were absolutely spectacular!!! After visiting Venice Beach and Santa Monica Beach, Manhattan Beach is the place to stay!!!"

"If you're looking for a cozy, clean one-bedroom unit in a lovely, safe neighborhood- this unit is for you! Fresh towels and basic amenities are included in this one-bedroom/one bathroom unit. We especially liked the two sinks in the bathroom. The fact that the unit had a washer/dryer right in the kitchen was also a plus, as we travel light and could easily throw in a load before we left for the day.
This unit is designed to host only 2 people. It has a very comfortable king-sized bed with great linens.
One can walk to the ocean and numerous shopping options are close by. You can walk to the grocery store and we were even able to walk to Mass.
The unit has an enclosed garage, and nice outdoor living space to expand its potential.
The only drawback to this unit is that it is positioned directly above the garage, therefore one hears the garage doors going up and down throughout the day. In addition, the occasional alley noise may affect one's sleep ( think ...garbage pick-up...once-a-week) But, don't let these factors interfere with renting this well-positioned property in the best part of Santa Monica!! It was a great rental for us! We' definitely return!"

"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."
