This property is even better than the photos. Our party of 5 adults enjoyed our 5 days in Manhattan Beach this February. The 3 bathrooms made getting up and out each day easy. The beds were really comfortable. The second bedroom no longer has the fish tank and has a large bed. I think that if the owners take on board my small suggestions re guest storage (given to the Property Manager) it well deserves a five star rating. Parking in February was easy - one of us parked outside the house and the other in the drive. A short walk to the beach and local shops. Beth who greeted us was warm and friendly and was flexible re arrival and departure which was much appreciated. We left yesterday and I noted an email triggering the return of the security deposit was sent that afternoon. If you book in the Winter it is well worth paying a little extra to have the pool heated. We really enjoyed our stay. The Ruse and Philippou Families.
Thank you so much for your kind words and detailed review. I very much enjoyed hosting you and your family! Elaine was a very thoughtful guest ... she and her family left the home looking as clean and neat as when they checked in. We have taken your suggestions seriously re storage and hope you will come back soon to enjoy! Thanks, Elaine! Best, Beth
Great Beach House!
We had a lovely time at this home. It is located on a quite street close to the beach and downtown. It was neat, clean and equipped with all the necessary amenities - the house was perfect for our family of five. I particularly liked how organized the drawers were in the new kitchen! We made use of the hot tub, pool and bikes. We walked downtown to eat and shop throughout our stay. I would recommend making reservations for dinner. We would definitely stay at this home again.
Cozy and fun
Hi. My group of older and younger relatives stayed here and loved the pool, location, and general charm of the place. It is a home, not just a rental. The bikes we so handy, plus all the local suggestions. The kitchen is a bit cramped but well-stocked with gear for those who cook. Magnolia and Francisco were wonderful property managers and the house was spotless. Beds were comfy and owners very accommodating. The pool and hot tub were used daily by everyone. Thanks for a fantastic stay!!
Hi Lynn, I'm so glad to hear that your group had a wonderful time at our home and had an opportunity to use everything our home and location had to offer.
Incredible Summertime Rental
I've stayed in several properties throughout Los Angeles County and I have no hesitation in recommending this property, particularly if you have children. It truly was the best experience I've had in renting a property - both the property itself as well as in dealing with its owners, Steve & Lynn.
The house itself was large enough for our family of 4, but was not ostentatious in nature (which we wanted to avoid). Steve and Lynn have done an amazing job in making this house a fun, comfortable, welcoming and relaxing retreat. Everything is there for you - a lovely pool & jacuzzi, 3 large bedrooms, a great living room with a huge flat-screen tv and media center, etc., etc. You really don't have to leave the house to have a wonderful vacation, but if you do, you'll find a great, uncrowded beach just a 5 minute walk away along with all of the restaurants and bars that Manhattan Beach has to offer. The best part, though, was dealing with Steve and Lynn, who were incredibly helpful and always available to answer any questions. A big thanks for Steve & Lynn for letting us rent your home and helping in my effort to convince my family that we should all move to Manhattan Beach in the immediate future!!
Thank you Michael for your wonderful comments. We are so pleased that you and your family had such a wonderful time at our home in Manhattan Beach. We hope you either find your new home in Manhattan Beach or at least come back to visit again soon.
Great walkable location in Manhattan Beach
Beautiful home within walking distance of beach and downtown Manhattan Beach shops and restaurants. Multi-level spa and pool, gorgeously landscaped, with plenty of outdoor furniture that turned the backyard into one big living area. Kids (ages 2 and 4) loved swimming in the pool daily. Adults could walk to the beach (as long as you're not lugging a playpen). Gracious hosts have thought of everything, including a notebook with recommendations for places to eat. We enjoyed Lemonades, Pages bookstore, and the wood-fired pizza delivered to the door. Highly recommended.
Thank you Martha for your wonderful comments.
Great summertime retreat at the beach
My family and I spent a week at the Johnson's Manhattan Beach house this summer, and it was the best vacation ever. I grew up in MB and wanted my kids to experience the magic of being close to the beach in the summer. The location is fantastic, the house is fantastic, and the owners are very friendly, answer emails quickly and are just plain nice to work with.
The house is very clean and spacious, and we felt right at home. I have three kids, and nobody felt crowded. The open plan kitchen and dining room were a great space for cooking and dining, and dishes, pans and utensils were easy to find. There is plenty of space for clothing--bathroom drawers, closet space and dressers had all been emptied out for guests. There were computers in the children's rooms, which was handy, and the entertainment system in the living room was excellent--and the owners have left detailed instructions. If anything, the house is much roomier than it looks in the pictures on the website. Everyone in our family was also a big fan of Socks, the resident cat. He's very laid back, but he likes to hang out near where people are.
The saltwater pool and jacuzzi are amazing. The pool area is beautifully designed and the landscaping compliments the space. There is plenty of outdoor seating and there is plastic wear on hand for poolside beverages.
My family went to the beach every day, and the beach is just a 5 minute walk away. There were boogie boards and beach chairs at the house, too. My younger kids boogie boarded every day.
Also within 10 minutes' walk is downtown MB, with retail, restaurants, and the classic Manhattan Beach Pier. Grocery stores are within walking distance as well, or a 10 minute drive if you want to go to Whole Foods. The owners leave a sheet of restaurant recommendations.
As an MB native, I really appreciated the low-rise, low-key character of the house. It's quite roomy without feeling ostentatious, and it's is very much in keeping with the original character of this very special town.
Thank you Andrea for your wonderful response. We are so happy to hear that you and your family had "The best Summer ever". Manhattan Beach is a very special place and we hope that you will stay with us next time you return to Manhattan Beach.
