June in Manhattan Beach

  • 5 of 5

We were very fortunate to be able to stay in this spacious studio while visiting family in the area. The space was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Our hosts were very accommodating - allowing us the use of beach cruisers, beach chairs and umbrella...and garage space! Literally on the beach & good restaurants nearby. We have stayed in many VRBO properties, and this was one of the best!

Great Location, Helpful owners, amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I recently traveled to LA for the CrossFit Games in Carson, CA. We decided to make a vacation out of the trip and picked Manhattan Beach as the beach of choice. Looked at many properties on VRBO, but it was hard to find one that would take 9 nights instead of 7 or 14. Thankfully The Strand Beach House was just the place. The owners were more than accommodating. Location is even better than the pictures make it look. Interior finishes in the condo are fantastic. The countertops, mini appliances, bathroom, shower, etc. are all high end and very nice. The owners were so gracious with everything they did to make the stay more enjoyable. Using the beach cruisers was a plus. We even returned our car for 6 of the days so we could just hit the beach and ride the bikes and take life down a notch. Very relaxing falling asleep to the waves and waking up to the surfers. Overall a fantastic trip. Highly recommended. Will book again when we travel to LA.

My daughter and I spent a week in this suite. She loved the WiFi and satellite TV with any channel you could imagine. I loved drinking coffee from a real mug while sitting on the private balcony and watching the surfers. The suite was very comfortable and stocked with all we needed for the week. There was even a hair dryer and a scale.(The scale came in handy when checking the weight of my checked luggage!) The owners graciously shared their bicycles and beach chairs, which we greatly appreciated. They were extremely welcoming and helpul while at the same time respectful of our privacy. They gave great recommendations on food and activities and patiently answered all of my questions. I highly recommend this listing and can't wait to go back!

Perfect start to the honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is in impeccable condition, very clean and the furnishings are all brand new and high-end. I think it looks even better in person than the photos show. The beach is just two steps outside the door and a cute dining-shopping area is walking distance away. The owner was incredibly responsive to our last-minute reservation request, gave us great recommendations on where to eat and made everything work very smoothly.

It was the perfect place to start the honeymoon in Southern California!

Couldn't have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

I am so happy that we selected this apartment for our LA trip. The location couldn't be better. It is right on The Strand. Steps to the beach, super close to a bunch of bars and restaurants. The apartment was super clean and it looked brand new. The pictures don't do it justice. It is amazing in person!

The rental also came with a parking spot which is great since parking can be a pain in Manhattan Beach. They also let us use their 2 beach cruiser bikes which were perfect for a ride along The Strand. The apartment is not huge by any means, but it is perfect for a couple. I would say my favorite part was how you could hear the ocean waves from the living room as you were watching TV or taking a nap. That is as good as it gets! Next time we come to LA, we will be staying here for sure.

Oh and the owner is very nice and attentive. She answered all of our questions quickly.
