My husband & I stayed with Barbara for 5 nights with another couple, good friends & travelling companions. We were met on arrival by Barbara's assistant who was helpful. The apartment was clean (yay!), well fitted out, although we couldnt get the TV to work for us - techno dum dums... or find an electric jug for making a cuppa - must be our British heritage... apart from those small hiccups the home very well met all our needs. Having a bathroom each was such a bonus. The bedrooms were a good size, the beds comfortable - although one of our friends is tall & found the single bed a tad short for him. The apartment is quiet, private, tastefully & appropriately decorated & comfortable. Having two sets of keys was very useful being two couples. Having a car park right by the front door was superb. The apartment is a few steps from the beach board walk which we used every day despite the June Gloom - it was delightful & an interesting walk as the local architecture is fascinating. The location was fabulous, a short walk to the delightful shops of Manhattan beach which have all one could need for a vacation. Its a short drive/cab journey to one of the best shopping centres in the South Bay, Manhattan Village. It is central to so many things in the South Bay area & not a long journey to town outside of rush hours. We found the area to be easy to find our way in, safe, quiet & clean. The locals are pleasant & there are many dining opportunities within walking distance which is great for a no drink/drive policy. We would stay in Barbara's apartment again anytime at all.
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.
The management company was easy to work with and reliable. The location was great; walking distance to restaurants, shopping and grocery! Unfortunately, the kitchen was outdated, the refrigerator was small with a broken shelf and there was no dishwasher. This became frustrating toward the end of our 2 week stay. The patio was lovely but the grill wasn't clean and it was old. Overall, the property was fine for our family of four.
We recently stayed at this property for 21 days. The property is clean, tastefully decorated and the location is superb. Barbara, the manager, is great help, she is at your convience when you need help and stays away when you don't need her. The location is noisy in the mornings during the weekdays, so if you like sleeping late you should choose to stay farther away from the strand but if you enjoy the early mornings and maybe taking a long walk, this is a great place to be. Evenings are quiet and peaceful. Watching the sun set over the Manhattan Pier while sipping your wine and enjoying the ocean breeze will make your your vacation a memorable one. This property is "the place" to help you enjoy Manhattan Beach and Southbay to the maximum.
The rental property is noisy and disappointing. The location is as described and the house is a quaint, older beach property; however, there is construction of a new home right next door to the property. The noise is continuous from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday to Friday. The owner and manager did not inform us of the construction prior to our arrival nor did they offer any compensation for the discomfort the construction caused.
Our experience was just what we needed. Even with the not so perfect weather it was very relaxing. The furnishings was so accommodating for entertaining. Our whole family, even those that were not staying there enjoyed the experience too. We were just steps to the beach. We made breakfast every morning. and we walked to dinner in the evening. Barbara made sure our stay was comfortable. I know that when we visit Manhattan Beach will be staying there again.
