About Frank Tai

Our goal is to make your stay a memorable one. I've lived in this area for nearly 30 years. I'm from Napa (California wine country) and went to school in Berkeley (Cal) and Boston (MIT).

Frank Tai purchased this house in 2010

Why Frank Tai chose Los Angeles area

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.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house for a couple days to host a team meeting. Frank and Darren were overly accommodating and helpful. The house was in incredible condition for our arrival, and they were both available for any questions we had during our stay. Would definitely book again!

Great experience!!! Definitely coming back!!

  • 5 of 5

Overall we all had a great time. There can't be a more perfect place than this for families with kids. The house was great, well furnished and very welcoming. Our kids played right outside the house in the sand while we relaxed and entertained ourselves. Our friends who visited us because I had planned my husband s 40th surprise birthday here were also amazed with the place! We played volleyball, rode bikes (available in the house), and enjoyed being on the beach very much!! We will definitely come back soon. I recommend this to anyone and everyone; it's a lovely place!! Thank you Frank.

A little piece of paradise at the LAX Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was our Second trip staying at the LAX beach house and we had loved it so much and first time we started referring in recommending it to our friends and family and my daughter-in-law's family rented it this past summer as well and enjoyed every minute of it so we booked the house again over the fall break to watch my alma mater play football against UCLA at the Rose Bowl last weekend . Had my adult nephew and his wife fly in from Michigan and meet us at the beach house and my adult daughter and her husband stayed with me as well. I cooked all meals at the beach house because we had no reason to go anywhere as the view and the sunsets cannot be beat why would I want to go spend hundreds of dollars taking everyone out to dinner when I had a perfectly good gourmet kitchen right there at the beach house! There is a 22 inch Weber Grill that we cooked a pork tenderloin on one night and it turned out wonderfully. Darren and Frank, the owners we're very accommodating and very easy to get a hold of and available to address all of my needs. I hesitated writing a review because quite frankly I don't want to share this place with anyone and I'm worried that everyone will see my review and start booking this wonderful home and then when I want to rent again it won't be available...kind of a Catch 22 situation.

Surpassed Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting beach houses for a number of years in various parts of Southern California. This was by far the best house and best experience. The house is exactly as represented - spacious, modern, clean, fully stocked, right on the sand. It is in a quiet area (except for the airplanes flying in and out which didn't bother me) that felt safe and, while secluded, was accessible. I could hear the beach from the house and see the surf from the second floor. We rented the house to celebrate my mom's 80th birthday and she had a perfect and peaceful week. Frank and Darren were terrific - they were nearby if needed and easily reached via text or phone. I would have stayed for a month if I didn't have to go back to work. I highly recommend this property if you want an outstanding beach experience!
