Great Weekend Getaway
The LAX Beach Pad was a fantastic place for a weekend getaway. It was was very clean and had everything we needed to feel like a home away from home. We’ll be back!!
We loved our stay here. The rental was perfect and had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend at the beach. The hosts were wonderful, and Frank answered all our questions when we arrived. 10/10 would stay here again.
Love the LA beach pad
We stayed here four nights and absolutely loved the area. It is a quiet family oriented town, everyone is so friendly, beach is literally across the street. Great park across the street too. The place was super clean and roomy. All the benefits needed where there. The owners made sure they were available if needed. I highly recommend this place. Can’t wait to return to LA
Peaceful beach retreat
We very much enjoyed our stay here. Frank and Darren were gracious hosts. The apartment is clean and well equipped, lovely kitchen and bathroom. Loved how close it was to the beach, and late at night could even hear the ocean from the open bedroom window. Comfortable beds, nice sitting area in the back just for us. It felt like an oasis coming back after being out in the busy city. Would definitely come here again.
Adequate but missing some things a beach rental typically has
I have rented many beach places in California, Mexico, and Hawaii so I’m reviewing this based on my previous experience. The owner communicated well with us and property was as advertised. A few improvements would make a world of difference to the renter. For instance there was no beach equipment like chairs, umbrella, cooler. Only 2 beach towels for 3 people.
The 4 pillows on the bed were hard as rocks. Would have been nice to have more pillows to choose from.
A few little extras that I have always found when renting Vrbo were missing here like coffee, filters, bottle of water. This is just very basic and sparse.
The location was close to beach, parking no problem, restaurants nearby. Airport noise didn’t bother me. Patio very nice. Clean very small apartment.
Was charged $30/ night extra for my son to stay on the sofa bed.
Thanks for your comments. This is a relatively new rental and we're still trying to figure out how to set it up (although I wish you had told us during your stay so we could have immediately remedied it).
We've already added everything you sited: beach equipment & towels, pillows of different firmness and additional staples in the kitchen.
Again, I appreciate your feedback - it will make my beach apartment better for our future guests.
Overall a clean and modern place to stay in a great location!
We had a lovely stay at Frank’s beach pad! It literally is just one block from the beach and is in a great location, very close to Santa Monica pier and Venice beach! The place was very clean when we arrived and we felt very welcomed during our stay. We would definitely return next time we’re in the LA region!
Our quaint and safe beach town is the home of the celebrities (one of LA’s best kept secrets), and boasts award-winning restaurants that are a short walk away. We will provide you with a list of our favorite restaurants and stores.
