About Montie Taylor

I am a native Californian. I am a semi retired motion picture lighting technician. I now reside part of the time in Manhatttan Beach and the other part of the time in my home in Park City Utah.

Montie Taylor purchased this townhome in 1995

Why Montie Taylor chose Los Angeles County

When I was much younger I used to drive to Manhattan Beach with my bike on the back of my car. I would park and ride my bike all day around the beach. One day I said ' I'm going to live here so I don't have to drive'. Now I do.

What makes this townhome unique

Walking distance to the beach, shopping, and restaurants.

Car: not necessary

This is a beach lovers dream with miles of sand both north and south. To the south are the beach communities of Hermosa, Redondo, Palos Verdes and on to Long Beach. To the north is Marina Del Rey, Venice, Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades and then Malibu. The sand and bike path is only a tenth of a mile from the front door of this home. Downtown Manhattan Beach is only a 15 minute stroll. There are a number of local restaurants only minutes away. A car is not a necessity but might be helpful for those activities out of the area.

Good space for family or two parties but beat up and needs maintenance

  • 3 of 5

We selected this property for its proximity to a family member's home and didn't expect it to be luxurious, but were disappointed in its poor condition. Most concerning were the sliding door to the back patio, which was missing a latch and "secured" with a flimsy board that still permitted the door to open 6 inches, and a missing smoke alarm in the upstairs living area. When we connected with the owner just before check-in, he told us the ceramic soapdish in the upstairs shower and the handle to the downstairs frig had both JUST broken. And we had a pretty ugly plumbing issue our first afternoon there that flooded the downstairs bathroom with sewage from the toilet while taking a shower in the upstairs bathroom. The water in the entire house was turned off till the plumber could get there and clear the line to the street. (The plumber mentioned this was the second time this year he'd been called to do so.) In the owner's defense, he was quick to call a plumber. While he couldn't stay until the plumber arrived and assured us that we didn't have to stay either, we weren't comfortable leaving our things in a poorly secured home with various crews coming and going. The plumbers and cleaners did arrive within a couple of hours but the whole episode took more of our first day there than we'd have cared to spend on it. We also did the initial cleanup of the sewage which backed up from the toilet. I requested some reduction in the price of our 3 day stay but had no response from the owner. If you're looking for a home with this configuration and in this location, you could do worse, but don't expect too much. However we should all expect to be able to lock a unit when away and asleep, have prescribed safety features in place, and not expect to have a toilet back up when taking a shower (particularly when it had happened previously).

Owner's Response: I can be found on multiple vacation rental sites with nothing but five star reviews for location, cleanliness, condition, convenience and communication. I have never had a negative review in the many years I've been providing vacation rentals. I have been booked every day all Summer and am now booked most of the Summer 2018 mostly with happy repeat customers. I don't claim my house to be Luxurious and it's price reflects that. It is a great comfortable beach house. These guests giving me this negative review and asking for a reduction in the price apparently forgot that I, at their request, gave them an early check in the day before. While I can never account for any one person's view or feelings about me or my house it certainly is not entirely as they've described. What is true is that there are numerous smoke alarms (5 in 1600 sq ft) throughout the house in every room in perfect condition. The missing alarm was redundant and did not create a safety hazard but has already been replaced. The broken fridge handle wouldn't even been noticed if I hadn't pointed it out. The door opens and closes easily without the handle. I do have a piece of doweling as a safety stop for the sliding glass door. It's impossible to open with it in place but I do allow the door to slide open a few inches for ventilation or can be opened wide by removing the wood piece. There is no security issue with the glass door when the dowel is in place. The broken soap dish and the fridge handle (both hard to find items) were on order. There was the unfortunate and unforeseen total sewer blockage. It did create an inconvenient couple of hours. But the plumber and housekeeping were on the scene promptly and the problem was resolved as fast as something like that could be. The suggestion my maintenance discipline is faulty is not true. Things happen. Renting to as many people as I do one can't control what is flushed and put down drains. None of these small issues were concerning nor ruinous to a vacation except the backup. But even that didn't destroy their weekend. Would they have been happier had I cancelled their reservation because of a smoke alarm or a broken soap dish? Perhaps I should have mentioned these small problems three days before their arrival and given them the option of finding something else. Common sense said it wouldn't and shouldn't matter and unimportant in the overall rental. There was nothing I could do about them anyway.

Our family of 7 rented this house for a whole month. Its comfortable with Plenty of space for everyone. Elder boys enjoyed the space and freedom of the lower unit. Close to beach and lovely walk along the sea front to the pier. Eveything we needed was there i.e bikes,beach chairs , surfboards.

Montie was great.

Bachelorette Weekend Success!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home to host a girls weekend getaway and I'm so happy I did! The house was the perfect size, very well equipped, and very clean. Also, there is plenty of parking space which is a huge plus in the Manhattan Beach area. The beach and various local restaurants are within walking distance just a couple of blocks away. The owner was very nice and easy to work with, he for sure made my first experience renting a vacation home a good one. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting the Manhattan Beach area and I would be more than happy to stay there again myself.
