This is a 2 bedroom 1 bath condo that is newly decorated with granite countertops and modern appliances. It is literally steps from The Strand (a separate 2.1 mile walkway, reserved for pedestrians), the Marvin-Braude Bike Trail (which extends north to Santa Monica and south to Palos Verdes), and the sand. It sleeps 6 (2 in each bedroom and 2 in the living area, there is an L shaped couch in the living room and two twin mattresses can be placed there). It is a short 10 minute drive from LAX and yet steps from the sand. Beach volleyball, biking, skate boarding, swimming, body boarding and surfing are popular activities among residents and visitors. Lifeguard stations are located along the entire length of the beach and the beach is cleaned and groomed daily by crews from the LA County Beaches and Harbors Department. It is driving distance to popular tourist locations like Disneyland and Universal Studios.

Loved the condo, attentive owner, great location but obstructed view not shown
Pros: The location is great! Short walk to the beach. On the Strand. Lots of restaurants nearby. Can hear and see the ocean from the condo. Julie is very responsive. I never had to wait very long for a response when chatting with her. The condo itself is very nice. The kitchen is big. The bedrooms a good size. And I still miss the master bedroom and the sound of the waves in the morning.
Cons: Minor but impacted us - the window coverings in the living room need to be replaced. The condo is on the corner at the far end of the strand and there is a very bright light that shines in at night. Some blinds were missing and the blue coverings are not functional. My son slept in the living room on the very comfortable couch but we had a hard time getting it dark enough for him to not be bothered by the street light.
The biggest surprise though was that this condo does not have an unobstructed view. There are big power lines in front of the unit which blocks the ocean view. I'm assuming these pictures were taken before the power lines were in place but it was a big surprise since the images do not show them and no one else mentioned this in previous reviews. It was the first thing I noticed when I walked in.
I also would like to suggest captions on the images. Having only them and a short description to go by along with other reviews, I assumed the unit was closer to the beach than it was. Knowing a bit more information would be helpful.
That said, we very much enjoyed our stay!
great property close to the beach
This property was great and had easy access to the beach. It is a little far of a walk if you are looking to get to the pier easily, but if you are looking to hang out on the beach it is perfect. very well kept and stocked and even has beach chairs for you to use. Hostess and host were great.
Really enjoyed location, having parking close to the beach. The hosts were awesome and we will be back.
Wonderful family vacation
Property owner really went out of her way to make sure things were wonderful for us.
It is just awesome to walk down to the beach rather than hunt for parking!!
You can actually see the sunset from the window. Would stay again!
FABULOUS location and hosts!!
This was a GREAT place to rent. We had a blast and the condo was fabulous. Very clean and with everything we might have needed plus some. The beach was a short walk and very clean with lifeguards and a small concession to get some snacks. The hosts were amazing, even helping us find a different parking space close because we had to bring a minivan. The only drawback (if you could call it that) is the steep stairs to get in. There are two handrails so it really wasn't an issue but I figured I would mention it. We would certainly stay there again. Nothing but good things to say!
Place was very neat and clean with beautiful views of the ocean. Owner Julie was awesome!
Would highly recommend this property and stay again! Clean, quiet, beautiful views! Owner Julie was very kind and accommodating!
