Interaction with Guests
I am friendly and available. Most evenings seem to get filled with plans, but I always enjoy going out with guests when our schedules mesh!
The neighborhood is very safe. I moved here in part so I wouldn't have any worry about my parents visiting. Unlike Santa Monica and Venice, I feel safe and secure walking around at any hour and am comfortable with having the door unlocked.
There are local public buses and the rail system to downtown is only about 4 miles away...
My hope is for you to have the time of your life here!
I don't think a lot of rules are needed other than common courtesy, but here are a few key items just in case:
** Please be mindful and courteous to never block the landlord's driveway (immediately next to our parking slot) or any other. ** (Thanks!)
Help keep the neighborhood tranquil and quiet - as with all AirBnB places I've ever been, if we don't make AirBnB a problem for neighbors, they won't make it a problem for us.
(Ignore this if you are car-free!) Please park to the RIGHT of the driveway - the building owners need free and continuous use of the driveway. The space is tight and you can ask me to "valet park" your car myself or guide you in.
The neighborhood is tranquil and safe. Sound travels so...
Peace and quiet for our neighbors is a top priority...
Check in is 4pm, but you can arrive earlier if no one is occupying your room. Let's coordinate about that.
Check out is noon, but again you can leave later if no one will be coming to occupy your room after you. We can coordinate...
There's a limit of 2 guests checking in total. No outside people without express permission - since this is my home I'm opening up.
Please wash off sand before you come in so the apartment. (There is a hose conveniently outside the front door). The shower gets a little sandy, but that's expected!
Please leave shoes/sandals at door - it's much more sanitary in general, it keeps the apartment looking great, and prevents unwelcome grit from getting in bed with you.
Let me know if anything is missing or needed so I can put it right...
Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and most importantly, please enjoy your stay!!
I new the moment I walked into Andrew's amazing Manhattan Beach pad I was in for a treat! For starters he greeted me with a snack plate and a welcome bottle of wine. We got along just great so much so we actually made a dinner together with great conversation. The location just Rocks so close to the Ocean and the main streets for shopping and Restaurants. It's a special place and I certainly will be visiting again hopefully soon. I just love Manhattan Beach and this place was nothing short of AWESOME!
Zur Begrüßung gabs Prosecco und Snacks. Andrew ist ein super netter Gastgeber, hilfsbereit und aufgeschlossen. Das Apartment ist wirklich "close to the beach", ein Katzensprung. Das Zimmer hat alles was man benötigt, ein komfortables Bett, Schrank, eigenes Bad mit Dusche und WC, perfekt. Abends geht man mit Meeresrauschen ins Bett. Geschäfte sind alle in Laufweite, genauso wie öffentliche Verkehrsmittel.
Another day in paradise! Werde die Zeit echt vermissen!
I had such a great stay at Andrew's! He's very welcoming and very nice. His appartment is perfect. Great location, great view and so close to the beach. Shops and restaurants are very close as well. Amazing holidays!
Three of us stayed with Andrew. Me, my wife and our 2 year old daughter.
We all knew this might result in some challenges renting a room in a home.
Everything went smoothly. Andrew really went over the top, he was the perfect host!
This is a great little place to stay!
Just steps to the beach and an easy walk to all the restaurants and shops downtown.
I could go on about all the wonderful details of our experience here. Instead, just look at the endless list of positive reviews for Andrew and his place.
We would easily stay here again.
Andrewn is probably the best hoster in all California state. He's gave me a very nice welcome with a bottle of wine, chocolate and snack. He was very helpfull to find good places in the area. His house is just at 1 block from the sea, it's the paradise ! THe bedroom and private bathroom are very nice, clean and cosy. For sure, I recommande to stay at his house, and I will try to come again and again. Big Thank you Andrew for all.
Andrew was incredibly hospitable from the moment we arrived. In fact, he greeted my girlfriend and I with a bottle red wine, pistachios, and chocolate!
The location is about 1/2 block from the Manhattan Beach Strand ... a wonderful location with an abundance of restaurant, bars, and outdoor activities. I would highly recommend Andrew to any Airbnb user and would not hesitate to book this location again.
Don't miss this place! Andrew is an excellent host and very accommodating. I have stayed with him several times and each time he has the highest level of hospitality. He provides a cold beer and some chocolate at check in and also gives you an introduction to the area. The room has a very comfortable bed and a separate attached bathroom. Kitchen is small but has everything I needed to make an omelette each morning and that was cool with Andrew.
The area: Perfect location to spend time on the beach. I like to walk and run on the beach (who doesn't) and Andrew's place provides the perfect spot to do so. There are also restaurants a short walk away.

Friendly and outgoing! I love meeting new people and I want you to feel welcome and at home here in Manhattan Beach paradise.
Your holiday vacation time is precious and sacred. My ambition is for it to be delight-filled, rich, relaxing and memorable for you... and my intention in decorating and setting the space is that it bring peace of mind.
I enjoy connecting and sharing with guests. It's one of my favorite aspects of AirBnB.
You may also prefer just to keep to yourself and enjoy your vacation on your own. Please enjoy without obligation...
I recently joined a startup in laboratory medicine. Life, friends, family, and surfing keep me busy and fulfilled.
Travel and being outdoors are a huge love of mine. Trading ideas, learning, helping friends succeed, reading biographies, playing, cooking, meeting new people who love what they do, enjoying wine bars and cafes, and doing meaningful work are all important to me.
I live in a charming beach town that I hope you'll love and return to again and again if you visit.
I love music and playing guitar (though not too well) and singing.
As a "professional guest" during my travels last year on AirBnB, I discovered that the details make all the difference. So I aspired to apply what I learned and create as wonderful and relaxing an experience as possible for you while you're my honored guest. Please tell me if there is anything I can do to make it better and I'll do my best to make it happen.
Reach out if you have any questions...
I look forward with anticipation to meeting you!
