About Frank Tai

Why Frank Tai chose Playa del Rey

This is a private home, not a condo and not a duplex - when you are at "LAX Beachhouse", there is no one above, below or beside you.

What makes this house unique

There is not a sidewalk full of pedestrians in front of the patio like at most beach towns in Southern California. So it is unique in that you have true privacy on the patio and in the other living areas.

Seaside Satisfaction

  • 5 of 5

The Beach house is well equipped and management responsive. How glorious to watch the sun flare across the ocean at sunset; the people riding/jogging/walking the seaside path. A few maintenance items cropped up, which were sufficiently addressed; Darren was attentive to our need for a DVD (was in the locked closet) and set it up for us. Loved the bikes and generous parking. Nice warm soak in the Master jacuzzi tub was great on those chilly nights, as were the 2 fireplaces! Restaurants and grocers nearby. 100% enjoyable! Would gladly stay here again.

LAX Beachhouse - The name says it all!

  • 5 of 5

This was THE best place for retired ( I mean "rewired"!) parents to spend time with their millennial kids, their friends and spouses.

We've been staying on Del Rey for several years since one kid moved out here several years ago. The first day you notice the noise from the takeoffs at LAX. After that, all you notice is the beautiful splendor of the location. We found the LAX big bird traffic to be a real plus. It's real fun to rent a bike and ride to Manhattan Beach and back. (Tip: Go to the Fish Bar!!). Plus LA traffic is a real bitch ... so a 10 minute ride from LAX to Del Rey is a great way to kick things off.

The beach house is amazing! The master bedroom is spacious and has a private balcony facing the beach. The living area and kitchen is a perfect place for the whole family to congregate. Serving Thanksgiving dinner was a breeze. Cutting up the bird with those dull knives was the only problem we had all week.

And there are plenty of sweet music and restaurants in Del Rey, Manhattan, Hermosa and Santa Monica. So you don't have to trek into LA/Hollywood unless you absolutely need to.

Next time in Del Rey ... we hope that this place is available!

Owner's Response: Hi Bart, We're glad you and the family spent a wonderful Thanksgiving out here, listening to the ocean waves. Thanks for the tip about the knives. We rarely get to use every item in the home in between guests, but I already went ahead and resharpened them. Take care, Darren and Frank

Great relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had a great five days here. The kids loved the beach all day, and being able to go back and forth so easily was wonderful! The house was very clean, and Frank was ready to accommodate our questions. We felt very safe and overall just had a great relaxing vacation.

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I came in town from Texas the second week of September and had a great time. The house is beautiful and very clean! Perfect location on the sand with plenty of restaurants and shopping near by. Definitely recommend to anyone wanting a Cali beach vacation. Will be back again soon!
