Amazing summer house
My family loved our 6 week stay at this house! The owners were amazing, as well as the housekeeper Aida. The house was very clean and came with everything we needed for our stay, beach toys, boards, wet suits, bikes, toys & games for our kids to play and all of the kitchen necessities to cook. The house is in close walking distance to the beach and bars/restaurants. I would highly recommend this house for anyone's vacation, especially families with kids.
I can't imagine a better stay at a HomeAway rental. The entire experience, from the booking process to check-out, was stress-free because Stacey is by nature just a wonderful host. He very generously offered the services of his lovely housekeeper and cook, which made us (the parents of two small kids) feel like we were on vacation...even though the kids were with us!
The house is immaculate but still incredibly comfortable. It's wonderful to wake up early with the kids and then take them for a walk along The Strand. My girls loved having the freedom to run wild, and it was nice to have so many restaurants within walking distance. As New Yorkers, that's very important to us, and we know it's a rare commodity in the L.A. metro.
For getting around, we loved how fast, easy and inexpensive it was to get an Uber. This location is surprisingly convenient to both the beach towns and to L.A. We had multiple lunches and dinners all over town and never had any issues, even during rush hour.
Now to the view. Just breathtaking. A photo can't capture the beauty one gets to enjoy every morning and evening. It's truly spectacular.
All in all, there's no better host than Stacey. Professional, responsive, kind. In my opinion, this property is a fantastic vacation destination for couples or families. It has it all...and so much more.
Fabulous House, Perfect Location
Three generations of one family (including small children) rent a beach house for the week: what could possibly go wrong? In this case, NOTHING. The house is fabulous, and sleeps 6 adults and 2 children easily, even lavishly. There are three big, beautiful bathrooms, and a children's playroom with games and toys. Everything is impeccably clean and modern, yet nothing feels fussy or too fragile for the hands of a four year old. The housekeeper comes daily for a few hours (be warned, nappers!), but when she leaves, you have clean clothes and dishes, and nothing to do but have some wine on the balcony.The distance to the beach is a short two blocks, and the beach itself is beautiful: smooth sand even when you are up to your neck in blue water, and the perfect waves for boogie boarding for hours with your ten year old. There are bicycles in the garage, including a mountain bike for that same ten year old, and you can cycle along the strand to the little Aquarium at the end of the pier or to get ice cream on MB Blvd. A few steps away is Fishbar, a much-better-than-your-usual-beach-restaurant and bar.
It took us about an hour to get to Disneyland and to Universal; the house is about ten minutes from the Airport. We used Uber car service to get around a few times; nothing could be easier (or cheaper). The owners, Stacey and Julie, were incredibly accommodating and responsive, and returned our deposit very promptly. Could not recommend more highly.
thank you so much for your kind words!!!
Our party of 3 families had a great stay in this fantastic home. Plenty of room. Super comfortable beds and linens, well stocked kitchen and lots of beach gear all helped make the stay a great one. The housekeeper and cook spoiled us! Everything about the transaction was easy, especially the proximity to good food and the beach. I miss my afternoon rides at the beach on the provided beach cruiser. Thank you for sharing your home!
thank you so much
Xmas Holidays at the beach!
We had an amazing family holiday over Christmas at this property (2013). With 3 kids under the age of 14, this property offers the perfect layout, with lots of fun areas for the kids and privacy areas for mom & dad to relax as well. Of the numerous amazing features of this property - the number one is its location to the beach with a garage full of every beach amenity you can think of. Running every morning along the strand is the perfect way to start your day and sitting on the balcony sipping wine while the sun goes down is the perfect way to end it. We had a Christmas morning that will never be forgotten and a holiday that will never be duplicated!
We had a great time staying at this house. It was clean and well furnished. The owner allowed us to use all the toys, including beach chairs, surf boards, and lots of children's toys. The owner was in touch with us to make sure our stay was perfect! We really enjoyed the house. We even had a full time housekeeper to do our laundry- we came home with a suitcase full of clean clothes. Short walk to the beach and plenty of restaurants. We found the Fish Bar and Uncle Bill's Pancake House--both had great food. Wish we could have stayed longer! The owner is awesome!
thank you so much!! Loved having you and your lovely family.
Take a leisurely walk or bike ride along the strand...if you head north, you can ride along the water to Marina del Rey, or Venice for a fun day of people watching! Head south and you will find yourself in beautiful Hermosa Beach. Manhattan Beach is a small intimate seaside quaint beach town, filled with beautiful shops, great restaurants and the most amazing beaches. There is a small aquarium at the end of the Manhattan Pier within the 'Round House', which features local sea creatures found in our waters. There is a small concession stand that offers ice cream, snacks and sodas. Just sit along the pier and watch some world class volleyball players, as well as some incredible surfers! Enjoy it all... Head south to Hermosa Beach for a lively mixture of restaurants, pubs and shopping by the Pier. Just a bit further and you are in the King Harbor Marina, where you can parasail, jet ski, rent a sailboat for the day, or just relax and have a nice meal overlooking the bay. Continue further, and you will come upon the 'always colorful' Redondo Pier with amusement parks, live music and lots of fresh seafood! We have several parks in the area...closest being Live Oak, just 4 blocks north around 15th and Valley. There are 12 lit tennis courts available for a nominal fee, a children's playground as well as a small dog park. On Tuesday's make sure to visit the Fresh Farmers Market from 12n to 4p, just around the corner on the back side of the Metlox Center...just off Valley a few blocks north. During the Summer there are free Concerts in the Park, (Pollywog Park), on Manhattan Beach Blvd...between Sepulveda and Aviation. Its all here - you won't want to leave!!!
