                                                            Lauren G.

                                                            My husband and I brought our family of 7 here to Manhattan Beach last Summer for a week, and we stayed in this beautiful home! It had absolutely everything that you would ever want- or could even think of -in a beach vacation home. Mary, the home owner is lovely and very accommodating and helpful. Steps from the sand, to downtown shopping and restaurants...there is absolutely no reason to ever get into your car! To us, comfort is very important, and this home is so comfortable, whether sleeping in bed or just sitting on any chair, sofa or on the patio! Super comfy!! We will definitely be back!

                                                            Wonderful week at the beach

                                                            Liz M.

                                                            Our family had a wonderful week! The house is gorgeous and STEPS from the beach. we could not have asked for a better week! the host was so helpful and accommodating.

                                                            Special Place to stay

                                                            We have stayed here several times and keep coming back because the home is so special. It's 2 blocks form the ocean (with incredible view of the sunset) and also very close to town, where all the great shops and restaurants of MB await your patronage! The owner is a decorator so the decor is elegant and inviting, and the beds are incredibly comfortable. I can't recommend this highly enough. You will be delighted!

                                                            My girlfriends and I had the best time renting this home for a week. The views are spectacular and watching the sunset every evening from inside was one of our favorite parts of our stay! The house is two houses up from the sand and three blocks from the town that has amazing shops, restaurants and the pier. The house is so close to everything which makes it really easy to walk everywhere. The hostess Mary, was extremely accommodating and made you feel right at home. Everything far exceeded our expectations and we all agree that it was the perfect trip! Anyone would be lucky to stay here whether it is with your family, spouse or friends!

                                                            I had an amazing time in Manhattan Beach and it would not have been the same without such a beautiful place to stay. Incredible views of the ocean where we could see dolphins, sailboats, the pier and even Catalina! It's practically on the sand and only a few blocks from town. The host, Mary, was exactly what you would want from a host. She was sweet, friendly and there if we needed anything. There is so much to do in town, which we walked to day and night. Great restaurants, bars, people watching and shopping. I can not wait to come back!

                                                            PERFECT Manhattan Beach Location!!

                                                            We just spent one week in this beautiful home, and it was absolutely perfect. If you are not familiar with the area, the location is unbeatable. You are 50 yards from the sand, so you have the beach access without the strand noise. You are a few blocks from downtown, where you'll find wonderful restaurants, shops, and the pier. 2 car parking and an in-home elevator were a nice bonus! Not only is the owner a very considerate and easy person to work with, but she made herself available should we need anything during our stay. I highly recommend this vacation rental!
