I think it is more than fair to say that this is a great Airbnb find. Terrific location with easy access to the beach (2 min walk), LAX (5-10 min drive), and lots of good restaurants and bars that are as near as across the street. I will be staying here again if it's available. I didn't have a car when here, but there are spots behind the building to park, and at worst case, you might have to walk 1/2 a block...small price to pay for the oceanside location.
The place is a pretty straight forward studio apartment with a comfy bed, a couch and a futon, a more than adequate kitchen and a small bathroom. It had a TV and a stereo (which I didn't happen to use) as well as a fantastic patio, BBQ, bikes and surfboards. For me traveling alone, it was beyond perfect. If I had my wife and young son along, it'd be great too.
You can't really go wrong with this place. The pictures are very accurate, and I think the place actually looks and feels better than the pictures show. I'd say book it. I know I will be doing the same here pretty soon.
My wife and I spent a long weekend at Nicole's place. It was just what we needed after a long winter in the Midwest. Extremely close to the beach and great surfing at El Porto as well as walking distance from restaurants and bars in Manhattan Beach. The front yard/patio is a great addition
Nicole was extremely helpful and made us feel at home. I hope we get to visit Manhattan Beach soon and if we do, we will definitely look to stay at Nicole's Beach Bungalow.
great place to stay! it was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. lovely base for long walks along the shore. quaint neighbourhood with extraordinarily good restaurants near.
Awesome stay! I came down with 2 friends and we stayed in the Bungalow. The location is awesome, and the place was clean and comfortable. Austin made sure to make us feel at home and offered great local advice on where to go. I will definitely stay here again!
One word describes everything about our stay at Nicole's place: PERFECT. It truly was perfect in every way. The beach bungalow is very clean and had absolutely everything we needed. The bed and futon are extremely comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing on the beautiful patio and especially loved biking up and down The Strand each day. Dinner at The Fishbar across the street on Highland is a MUST.,,,best salmon & mahi mahi we ever ate. Our host Nicole was extremely attentive, informative, friendly and made us feel right at home. I highly recommend her place. Look no further. You won't want to leave.
Manhattan Beach is fabulous. Nicole is a terrific host, studio was just as pictured... maybe even better! Clean, comfortable, it was like I was in my own apartment. right outside the apt. is the ocean. I will come back for sure next time I'm planning a nite in MB. Shade Hotel is $500 a night. I'd rather use the difference and go out and enjoy all the many dining/drinking establishments in the area and stay in a private apartment just like this one! Everything was just easy and perfect here.
Nicole was a great host and her place is in prime location! Although it's a compact unit, you will find it quite comfortable with everything you need for a several nights stay. The place was clean and Nicole was easy to coordinate check in/out details.
I would certainly recommend this place to friends!
Great location, spent a week without a car, enjoyed being a local, close to the beach and restaurants, easy access to the area. Host was attentive and easy to communicate with. A place I would stay again and recommend.
Great host! Good location. She made amazing suggestions on what there is around. Specially with regards to food. Walking distance from the beach. Let me use their bikes. I would definitively return.
Perfect spot, perfect host, perfect price! Thanks Nicole for a great stay! I'll be back!
Austin and Brett were terrific guests. Super communication all along the way, courteous and kind visitors. Thank you!
I have known A.S. for over 10 years & with out a doubt can say she is a wonderful, kind, caring, & fun person who has always been there for me. These qualities transfer perfectly into hosting . I highly recommend A.S. & her rental. Sincerely, Steven.
