Perfect 'Home Away From Home'
"I highly recommend this wonderful luxury home, which we had the pleasure of staying at recently.
From our first contact with questions about renting ~ through our arrival and stay we were extremely pleased. The description of luxury oceanview home is perfect. As soon as you step onto the property you feel right at home with tasteful decor and high quality furnishings and appliances. Everything we needed was there...bikes for cruising 'The Strand'; gas grill; beach towels; a garage to park our car; great kitchen and plenty of space.
Sitting on the front patio or sitting on the front porch listening and watching the ocean was fantastic. And even better was the short walk to the beach. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your wonderful 'beach cottage'"

"Bigger than appears in photos, tall ceilings and lots of windows with beach view and breeze, this is a perfect escape and great value. Love this part of Manhattan Beach with our favorite restaurants around the corner.
Owner very accommodating."

"My wife and I stayed in this apartment for a week with our two eight year old boys and it was a pleasure from start to finish. The apartment is the back unit of a house that is actually on the strand, so it is something like fifty steps to the beach. Ideal in that sense. The owner provides you with access to her garage which contains beach chairs, umbrellas, a cooler, boogie boards etc. so we were all set for days on the beach. Also supplied were some bikes which were great as well. The pier is less than a five minute walk along the strand and there a host of great restaurants and bars the same distance away, on Manhattan Beach Blvd.
The apartment is not huge but did not feel crowed for the four of us. When we got there the place was very clean. The smaller bedroom has an ensuite bathroom that is tight but it was fine for our kids. The deck is spacious and has fantastic view of the beach from two sides. There is a bbq on the deck that was clean and worked perfectly. The wifi worked perfectly as well and there is a parking spot (very important in Manhattan Beach, to be sure). The only (small) draw-back to this unit is that there is no dishwasher, but really, not a big deal. Overall, a fantastic experience."

"We had a great time at this apartment! It is very comfortable and beautifully decorated (the photos are reliable) but two important aspects make it one our favorite rentals in Manhattan Beach - fantastic location and attentive, responsive owners. First, the apartment is very close to the Strand with incredible views of the beach in both directions. Only a couple of blocks from all the action in downtown Manhattan Beach, you are close enough to walk to restaurants and shops but not so close that any noise associated with downtown would bother you - we loved being able to hear the waves breaking on the beach! Second, we have rented many times in Manhattan Beach and through VRBO in general and sometimes issues arise requiring the attention of landlords or owners. The owners of this unit are everything you'd hope to have when renting a vacation apartment - VERY responsive, quick to address issues and warm and friendly in demeanor. They were a pleasure to deal with in making our reservation and our security deposit was returned very quickly. We appreciated very much their professional attitude and their helpful suggestions and accommodations! If only everyone offering rentals through VRBO took care of their renters and property like these owners do! The kitchen, baths and bedrooms were lovely and well-equipped with good mattresses, high quality bedding and towels and thoughtful touches including toiletries, nice beach chairs and coolers! There is a virtually brand new gas grill which we enjoyed using while we were there. Compared to other rentals we've stayed in, this apartment was perfectly set up for a great beach vacation. We highly recommend this apartment and will certainly look first to see if it's available whenever we return to Manhattan Beach!"
