  • Perfection!

    "We were looking for a location that could serve both as a getaway/staycation, and also as a place where we could host our 10th anniversary party. And we couldn't have made a better choice than Rayen Manor. We are SoCal-ers, so for us it was a staycation. We invited a few friends from out of town who were coming to our party to stay at the house with us, and as each one arrived, it was so much fun to show them around! Brenda and Martin went above and beyond to help us as we planned for the party, answering all of our questions quickly and thoughtfully. Brenda even allowed us to come look at the backyard to get a sense of the space for decorating purposes. And she includes special touches that make the house feel like a personal resort - fluffy robes in the master bedroom, a binder full of local info, and tons and tons of movies. The house itself is beautifully appointed. The space flows, and the furnishings are lush. And can we talk about the master bathroom for a sec? It is phenomenal!!! The backyard, where we hosted our party, is magical with its outside bar, terraced patio, fireplace, and multiple seating areas. At night, we (along with our guests) would sit in the stone hot tub connected to the pool and gaze up at the stars. Mornings were spent sipping coffee in one of the many cozy seating areas. The game room was a popular afternoon and evening hangout. We took turns playing pool or playing one of the many board games available. Our party was an enormous success. We're pretty much perfectionists when it comes to hosting parties or gatherings - we like our guests to feel a happy sense of community, and Rayen Manor had much to do with that at our party. Again and again we were approached about the house - what an incredible place, how did we find it, could we please rent it again and host another party. This is a long review, but truly, we cannot recommend Brenda and Rayen Manor enough. It's the perfect getaway - whether you're traveling to Los Angeles or an Angelino, this place is ideal!!! The morning we checked out, we were surprisingly sad. But we have incredible memories of the perfect weekend - with friends, family, a celebration, and some quiet time - and Rayen manor played a major role in that perfection. Thank you Brenda!!! We cannot wait to come back!!!"

  • So much better than a hotel!

    "We really enjoyed this quaint little house in Long Beach. The owners have thought of everything and do their best to make it feel like a home away from home. They are helpful and have accurately listed the home. The location was convenient for us to get to the convention center area with a rental car. I would recommend this home to my friends and would gladly return in the future."

  • Great Beach and Accommodations!

    "We really enjoyed our stay at this condo at Manhattan Beach. It was clean, spacious and a 3 minute walk to the beach. There are several good restaurants near by, not to mention a grocery store, surf shop and other stores. We would love to stay here another time. Family of Five"

  • Location location location!

    "Right on the beach! The only reason I didn't give this property a 5 is because it was unseasonably warm in California in November. Since there was no air conditioning it was hot in the house. We were able to go in the ocean and the grandchildren loved watching the Dolphins from the spacious deck. The house is great and Natalie was wonderful to work with....very quick to respond to my questions. It is only about ten minutes from the Santa Monica pier. A very relaxing and beautiful property!"
