Guestbook comments from the owner

I was also amazed at the cleanliness of the condo - it was spotless. The decor is wonderful and it shows that the owners take much pride in this unit. It is within walking

distance to some really great breakfast/lunch restaurants and in a minute you are on the Strand (walkway along the beach). We enjoyed our stay here and hope to rent this condo on all of our future vacations to Manhattan Beach. Thanks Jim for making our vacation one to remember!

Wonderfully located and perfect service

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the 3 days in Jim's apartment in Manhattan Beach.

The apartment itself was really nice. With a great view of the beach and nicely furnished.

Jim was extremely helpful and all went very well.

Be careful with the parking, as it is very narrow.

Fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as shown on the internet. It was clean and well-maintained and instructions were accurate and easy to follow. We did not need anything from the owner since everything went so smoothly. I would recommend this to other customers.

We enjoyed riding the bikes that were provided on the strand as it is very close. The sunsets at the beach were wonderful. We had other things to do so were not able to explore the city of Manhattan Beach until our last night but very much enjoyed our dinner at Rock-n-Fish that night. The beds were very comfortable and linens were nice. The keyless entry for the door and garage made getting in and out very convenient. The home was very well equipped with everything we needed. Really appreciated having the use of the washer and dryer. This house made our stay very enjoyable.

A perfect holiday for our family

  • 5 of 5

We loved this spot for a couple of reasons. First of all the neighbourhood is great - it's close to everything we wanted - restaurants, stores, freeway access - and most of all it's safe and so convenient to the beach and the Strand which makes it easy to connect to the other beaches. So nice to be able to sleep with the windows open and hear the sound of the surf at night.

Also the house is so well set up to take advantage of the location. We used the bikes and all the beach accessories - boogie boards, chairs, umbrellas which so enhanced our stay - just made it easy. And as the organizer, I loved the more practical setup as well - the entry keypad so our teenage boys could come and go as they wanted, the laundry, the well-equipped kitchen etc. It was a turnkey holiday for us.

Finally, we were new to the VRBO experience and Jim made it all very easy and stress-free. We are definitely converts.

Great place so close to the Strand.

  • 5 of 5

This place is a great for a relaxing stay so close to the beach and the Strand. We walked every day, ate at great restaurants, and enjoyed a great sunset from the small deck in front. Super quiet neighborhood and we loved being able to hear the ocean at night.

Great El Porto spot!

  • 5 of 5

This 2/2 is a great place to stay in N Manhattan Beach. My family came from Indiana to visit and when I found this gem I was very pleased! It was close to me, the beach & the eateries around el Porto. Spacious but cozy & had 4 bikes, plenty of towels, etc. the owner Jim is fantastic about communicating and helping make your stay great!
