Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

The Strand House was a great place to call home for the 5 days we were there. Steps to the beach and to great restaurants and such a close drive to shopping and the gym. The garage was nice to have since the parking in the area is a challenge. It's furnished very nicely and very comfortable and l love that it has 2 bathrooms. There's plenty of space and it has a nice sized kitchen. I would definitely stay here again and the owners were great and available to answer any questions as needed and to give advice for places to eat. Nice neighbors too!

When traveling for business I prefer to have a home like atmosphere rather than a generic hotel. The Strand House gave me just that but with the best location in Manhattan Beach! Steps to the beach. Restaurants and shopping close by. Garage for the car. It was the best of all worlds. I will return with my family for a more relaxing time soon. Highly recommend!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a long weekend staying here with my nephews and we had a wonderful time. I'm a frequent MB visitor and love the downtown area. This condo is close enough, but far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle and you have plenty of good restaurants and a gorgeous beach right out the door. The condo itself is perfect with comfy furnishings and it's great to have a parking garage! Highly recommend it.

Great condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We regularly visit Manhattan Beach to bike ride and enjoy the beach. We thought it would be the perfect place to enjoy a week's vacation. Luckily, we found this great condo very close to the beach and the Strand where we would ride our bikes, walk the Strand, enjoy the great beach and visit local restaurants as recommended by management. The condo was very clean and just as advertised. Great management too. Very accommodating. Also, can't forget the very comfortable king sized beds. Would definitely stay here again!

Fantastic stay at the strand house

  • 5 of 5

The strand house was ready upon arrival and provided an amazing location to enjoy Manhattan Beach. The apartment is well laid out and a nicely appointed kitchen! We loved the incredibly close proximity to the beach and the quiet neighborhood. We met a few neighbors and they were all lovely! Overall a great experience and, given the opportunity, we will return! We were very sad to leave !
