Located in North Manhattan Beach, three blocks from the famous El Porto surf spot and many restaurants and bars. Comfortable queen bed, large shower, kitchen (granite countertops, stainless steel appliances), and rooftop deck with ocean views.
Our space comfortably accomodates 2 people with a queen bed and a closet. Chefs will love our fully stocked kitchen and beach lovers will love our easy beach access and roof top views.
Guests will have full and exclusive access to the home (large living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and roof deck). Parking will also be provided. We live in a separate unit below so will not share any of the space but will be easily accessible when needed.
Interaction with Guests
We will greet the guests upon arrival to give a brief tour, but will otherwise have minimal interaction with guests and will stay in our separate unit. We are always responsive when needed, and if you'd like a tour guide, we are happy to point you in the direction of some great spots - we love Manhattan Beach and sharing our recommendations! A restaurant list and a welcome manual will also be provided for your convenience.
Manhattan Beach is a cute, laid back beach town with so much to offer. There are great restaurants, bars, and shops and the beach is famous, attracting worldwide surfers. Also, only 10 minutes from LAX.
We live in North Manhattan Beach, which is 1 mile north of downtown, making for a beautiful walk along the Strand. While it is a bit calmer than downtown Manhattan Beach, we have plenty of shops, restaurants, yoga, and an excellent beach right in walking distance!
Manhattan beach is extremely walkable. Residents and tourists cruise around on foot and beach cruisers primarily. There are plenty of cabs in the vicinity, and driving/cabbing is very easy. We also are huge fans of uberx, especially for those happy hour evenings :)
Other Things to Note
The apartment is on the second floor so guest will need to walk up a flight of stairs which are somewhat narrow. We have not had any issues with them, but worth noting if you have small children or difficulties climbing stairs. Our parking spot is also narrow but if you back in, should fit most sedans. Otherwise, there is plenty of street parking (although can be harder to spot on weekends and evenings).
No smoking or pets.
Out of respect for the neighbors, we prefer our guests to be relatively quiet and off the roof deck at a reasonable hour. Given that it is a detached unit, the space is quiet and neighbors will not disturb you.
Great space. Great location. Ashley and Taylor were welcoming, available and quite responsive.
Thanks so much!
Ashley was a great host—very welcoming and accomodated any needs we had during our stay. She was kind enough to include snacks, coffee, juice and recommendations of places to go in the area. The place was exactly how it looks in the pictures, very clean and perfect for two people. Walking distance to the beach and many great restaurants. As described, the parking place is very tight..certainly something to consider if you have a car, especially since street parking can be difficult at times. Nonetheless, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Ashley and Taylor were exceptional hosts. Amenities were as described in their listing, their restaurant recommendations were on point and they were very responsive and pleasant when answering any questions I had. The apartment was very cozy and the roof deck really sold me on their space and I'll definitely look them up the next time I'm in town!
Great location! Great condo/apartment. Ashley very attentive during our stay. We appreciated our stay very much.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Wonderful space, looks exactly the same in person as it does in pictures. Ashley was very communicative when I needed her to be, and very nice when I met her in passing. Conveniently located to FishBar, Four Daughters and of course the beach!
We were absolutely delighted by our stay in Ashley's home. It did not only answer but even topped our expectations. By entering the living room, we felt immediately at home, the whole of the apartment is very nicely done up, we loved the decoration which gives the whole a real touch of a beach house with the collections of shells and pictures and candles. We found everything we needed, the kitchen was fully equipped and our host even catered for our breakfast as we found fresh milk and orange juice and cream cheese in the fridge and some fruits and bagels on the kitchen table. The bathroom provided everything we needed even shower gel and shampoo and a lot of fresh towels. The sleeping room was very nice and the bed so comfortable. I loved the little frog keeping watch while I was sleeping. The sofas in the living room invited to loll around with all their cushions. We were eager to discover the roof deck and it was absolutely amazing, you can relax in comfortable chairs and you have a view to the Pacific. The apartment is really very spacious and all was very clean. The neighborhood is calm even though the location is near to Rosecrans Avenue. There are a lot of restaurants just steps away and we loved the Japanese Izakatsu just around the corner.
Manhattan Beach is a great location as it is mainly residential and calm but on the other side it is perfectly situated to visit Los Angeles and all the beaches around.
Although we did not meet our host, she was all the time accessible and we were in contact by phone via sms messages and she asked several times if everything was OK and offered her help if there was anything we needed.
So all in all if you are looking for a nice place to spend some calm comfortable days and if you need space we highly recommend Ashley's home.
It was our first experience with Airbnb and it was so conclusive that in the future we will think about it rather than looking out for a Hotel.
Thank you so much Ashley for this great vacation :)
We are young professionals who love the beach life - both the balance of activity and relaxing! We have a separate unit downstairs so we will provide a turn key, private, furnished apartment to let you enjoy all of the privacy of a vacation.
