About owner/property manager
I grew up in Florida and was blessed to have the most amazing parents ever. My mom and I own the house together, but she lives in Florida. I am an active person, and I love the beach. I changed careers and I recently graduated from law school. I love spending time with friends and enjoying life.
owner/property manager purchased this Villa in 2009
Why owner/property manager chose Tree Section
I was amazed when I saw this house. I love animals and always have dogs. The yard was fabulous! I also like that it is close enough to the beach to walk or bike there, but far enough away that I don't get the noise or parking problems. It really is the best of both worlds. I feel like I live in a quiet little community but I am close to everything.
What makes this Villa unique
This home felt like mine from the moment I walked in. It is a true home. Growing up in Florida I was used to having a yard and a house that has two levels. When I moved to California, I noticed because the lots were so small, many of the homes had 3 and 4 levels because they didn't have the room for a more traditional floor plan.

We had an amazing time at April's place. It was the perfect place for a bunch of friends to reunite for our annual beach weekend. When we arrived she greeted us in person and left a welcome basket. The house was clean and the location was perfect. We could walk to the beach or drive to a shopping center to get anything we needed. April was always available to give us any advice about the area. We would definitely stay there again!
Thank you so much Jessica! I am so happy that you all enjoyed yourselves. You were amazing guests and you are all welcome back anytime! :)
BEST LOCATION AND FUNGSHUAI HOUSE
This is a massive French Estate, with pastoral views from all rooms. We slept 10 comfortably, and cooked meals and barbequed in the enclosed private, gated front and back yards.The place was impeccable, spotless and very well furnished.The young adults walked and biked to the bars, the teen agers walked to the movies and beach and the seniors walked 3 mins to a massive shopping center that has Macy's , 6 banks, and one of every dept stores. The house is 5 mins from LAX, 5 minutes to the 405 freeway, and you can get to Beverly Hills, Westwood, and the Staples Center downtown in 30 minutes. This was our best vacation ever! and our even our Terrior had a private yard and dog run. Thanku April for being such a fine hostess.
Thank you so much. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family. I hope to see you all again next year.
Great Escape in Manhattan Beach
We contacted April via Vrbo and she returned my email right away, she made the rental process easy and uncomplicated. We did a walk through and explained that we would be doing a lot of cooking. Her kitchen was stocked with all the necessary equipment I needed, which meant I did not have to pack a lot of stuff to cook with. The yard and the gazebo with fire pit was perfect for entertaining. April gave helped us with everything we needed throughout our stay without being intrusive she made us feel like we were at home. The bedrooms are all immaculately appointed with stylish decor and comfy bedding. There were bikes available to use and since the home is located only blocks from the beach and scenic bike paths they came in handy. The "walkability" of the neighborhood is another little gem. A supermarket, drugstore and several restaurants and bars are all in close walking distance along with a mall with a Nordstrom's and Macy's next door. All around great time I've rented many vacation homes in the past and this one is perhaps the most convenient and easy to maneuver through. However no matter how luxurious and hi-end the home is, the customer service trumps it all for me. April was a delight to work with. My suggestion for renters is to be clear and direct as to your needs, make sure you communicate all of your concerns during the walk through and take pictures before and after your stay. If you select this property you will not be disappointed. Oh and did I mention the staircase is so "Gone with the Wind" we took some awesome picture. Great getaway in Manhattan Beach
Thank you so much. I really enjoyed meeting you and your family and look forward to seeing you all again :)
We had 10 people in the house and it worked perfectly. April met us when we arrived and showed us around. She had left a gift basket with all kinds of good snacks for us. There were a couple minor problems which April took care of immediately. We actually invited her to an after party for the CrossFit Games and everyone got to know her. It is a beautiful house and very spacious. Would definitely rent again. Thank You April for hanging with us.
Thank you so much Linda! I had a wonderful time with you guys and I would love to see you again :)
The house is beautiful, but April bends over backwards to make sure you have a wonderful time. She made us a beautiful gift basket and we felt very welcomed from the start. She is better than any concierge at any hotel I have ever been to. We couldn't figure out how to work the coffee maker and she was there in 5 minutes to show us. The house is close to everything, which is great because the teenagers got out of our hair for a few hours and went to the mall across the street. You will enjoy your stay.
Thank you for the kind words Cindy. It was great to meet you and your family! Meeting great people always makes this more fun. I hope you visit again in the future :)
It's more like a mansion than a house! I want to live there!!
I came here with my family and our dog. The owner loves pets, and even had dog treats in our welcome basket. The location is fabulous! My wife liked it was across the street from the mall,and a grocery store. Our teenagers could hang out at the mall and get out of our hair. You can walk to downtown and the beach so you only have to get in your car to go sightseeing. We went to the Getty, which was fabulous!! My son and I went hang gliding and my daughter and wife rented jet skis. We will be back!
Great location!! European elegance at the beach. This home is directly across the street from the popular jogging trail that will take you all the way to Hermosa Beach. The home is walking distance (less than a mile) to the beach, restaurants, bars, downtown, grocery store, cvs, and the Manhattan Beach mall. The house is a short drive to Marina Del Rey and the famous Venice beach. The convenient location offers easy freeway access to places like Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, and Hollywood as well.
