Little Gem right in the heart of Manhattan Beach
First to say- Manhattan Beach is a terrific- one of the best beach towns in all of Southern California - this studio condo in MB is located in the heart of this lovely beach town, and was a perfect choice for our 6 day stay. Jackie, the owner, is awesome- quick to respond when I submitted the request to book, and very attentive once we got off the plane. the studio itself is cute, has lots of natural light, and a just perfect for a couple staying at the beach. We did a daily walk in the AM into town for breakfast and on the Strand (great way to start the day); there are shops and restaurants up and down the street, and I don't think we made a poor choice at any of spot. Bed was comfortable, kitchen stocked nicely, beach chairs provided for outings down to the sand, and comfortable chairs in the room to lounge at night when we'd get back after a busy day & watch a little TV (lots of channels). We are normally hotel people - we actually had a reservation at a resort in Manhattan Beac, But we received an email for this property a couple of days before we flew out to CA, saying "still available" & I did some research & reached out to Jackie, confirmed the rental, I cancelled our reservation for the resort. Easy process, I'm really happy we changed course. One of our best trips back home to California & we'll be back.
An aside- We had trouble w/wifi connection - nothing Jackie could have done. She went out of her way to come to the condo on Friday night, and "troubleshoot" which worked to a point, but ended up having to call her tech guy. I thought that alone was a sign of a terrific owner; going that extra mile. We never got a strong connection, but in another classy move, I get an email notifying me of a 'refund for poor wifi connection' - we didn't demand it, she just did it! We brought our tablets to use as needed, it wasn't urgent for us to have internet access, I work in the tech industry, unplugging is important when I go on vacation, so I definitely didn't 'need' the wifi, but the gesture by Jackie was so wonderful, & speaks to a professional who looks for her guests to be taken care of. One more: we made a big error in parking our rental car on the wrong side of the street (street cleaning by city) & got a ticket. Another tremendous gesture - reimbursed us! This was on us totally, certainly didn't have to do it. We travel home to Socal a few times a yr, will be back here!
Thank you so much for the review. You were such wonderful guests. Can't wait to have you back again soon.
This was a great two week stay and less than 100 yards to the Strand. The unit was very clean, comfortable, and well stocked with all possible essentials. Wifi service was excellent and cable TV had a huge selection of channels--even a DVR. I love visiting MB and always notice the friendly, small town attitude of the residents. And many great eateries an easy walk away. Location is just a few miles to LAX so access is very convenient. I wouldn't hesitate staying in this wonderful paradise again!
Comfortable and convenient
My husband and I spent a week at 221 15th Place in Manhattan Beach visiting for the Christmas holiday. The unit is a spacious studio space. A comfortable bed, kitchen with full size appliances and a patio to enjoy the wonderful weather. Location was great - 2 blocks to downtown in one direction and the beaches in the other. We had a minor plumbing issue but the owner had it fixed within an hour. The unit was clean and nicely decorated. Would stay here again.
We could not have asked for a better place to be for our time. It made the trip even more special. It was comfortable, suited our purpose and made us feel at home. I even referenced it as " going home" a few times. The location was great. From the beginning of the day to returning for the evening it was perfect. Now we have two reasons to visit again and will most definitely will.
Cute, Convenient, Cozy, Beautiful Views
I stayed a full week at this location and really had a good time. I was there for business, but with it's location I was able to go out & play everyday once work was over.
Parking was scary at first-this area was crowded due to lots of folks on summer vacation. However after I reviewed some places the owner listed to park, I found a lot just a short walk away that I used for the duration of my stay.
I will be back one day for sure!
Lovely studio and great location!
Nice studio, perfect location in Manhattan Beach. It offers all amenities including a fully equipped kitchen, a balcony, towels, beach chairs and umbrella. The studio was very clean and comfortable. Jackie was very kind and helpful from the moment of reservation till our arrival. Everything was perfect for our stay. The only suggestion we could make: putting mosquito nets on the windows to prevent insects from entering the studio, especially considering that there is no air conditioning. Thank you Jackie for everything! We highly recommand this place.
From LAX take Sepulveda Blvd South. Take a right on Rosecrans Ave. take a left on Highland Ave. Take a right on 15th Place. 4th House on the right.
