Great Location. Nice Owners. VERY uncomfortable furniture.

  • 2 of 5

We loved how close it is to the beach and the owners were very kind and accommodating. Unfortunately we would not stay there again because of how uncomfortable the living room furniture is, as well as the bedroom mattresses.

Had a great time in S. Manhattan Beach and really enjoyed the house. I agree with other reviews - great, clean property within steps to the beach and close to lots of nice shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again if going to S. Manhattan Beach.

This property is in a perfect location in Manhattan Beach. Very accurate description of the property and pictures. The rooms were very clean and everything was in working order. The owner was very prompt with all correspondence and friendly. This was perfect for us with 4 people. I loved that the 2nd room had 2 twins, so my boys were comfortable. We loved spending time at the beach. We also rented bikes for the week and cycled every morning on the strand. Great restaurant options walking distance to the Manhattan Beach pier. Of course the kitchen was right there to allow us to eat in as often as we liked. Great breeze from the ocean kept the rooms comfortable even when the weather was warm.

We didn't meet the owners, though I believe they lived in the attached house. They provided helpful information in a flyer in the apartment.

Don't expect the accommodations to be fancy, but certainly very comfortable and clean. We will be going again soon.

Location, location, location!! Cute place!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my two girlfriends over Memorial Day weekend!! The location is perfect!! One block from The Strand and 0.4 miles from the main drag Manhattan Blvd. You can walk everywhere and the area is very safe!! It was also very quiet, too. I read a lot of previous reviews before booking this place... I would have to agree that the couches/chairs in the living room could be more comfortable. A nice L-shaped couch would be perfect!! I would definitely stay here again!! Thank you for the great accommodations!!

Great location

  • 3 of 5

Overall this place is good. Great location, nice place. Only real downsides were the couch/living room furniture which was super uncomfortable. Uncomfortable enough that you'd write a review about it. Also no AC, which wasn't a major problem because we were there is October, but you need to keep the windows open, and there is construction nearby. So as long as you are planning on being out at the beach or outside during most of the day, great place. If you want more lounge time inside, maybe less so.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive comments about to the unit. Sorry you felt the living room couch was uncomfortable. This is the first negative comment we received relative to the furniture. Should we receive more such comments we will then have to make some changes. The lack of A/C, which is noted in the amenities section, is generally not a major problem all year around. Up to 5 or 6 years ago it was unheard of to have A/C at the beach. Nights for the most part are cool and usually require at least a long sleeve T-shirt. However, In anticipation of a warmer weather trend we recently installed ceiling fans in both bedrooms. They are quiet and work well in creating a breeze and lowering the room temperature. Most guests want to keep the windows open --- they enjoy hearing the sounds of the surf. The construction is at the end of the street is nearing completion. It creates very little noise as all the work is currently inside. With the new windows closed, which were also recently installed, it’s very quiet inside. Your hosts Bob and Donna
