Quiet location, fun retractable roof
My daughter (age 14) and I stayed for 4 nites. The location is on the opposite end of the Strand so it is very quiet. We rented boogie baords and took surf lessons all just steps form the house (maybe a 3 minute walk to beach). We really loved the laid back, sufer town of Manhattan Beach and plan to return for a future visit. Great waves and the beach was never crowded the whole week we were there. The home was well maintained and the pictures online were very accurate. Rob was responsive with questions and promptly returned our deposit. My daughter thought the retractable roof (similar to a sunroof on a car) was very cool. The loft area provided great views of the ocean and allowed for cool breezes to fill the home. If you don't mind driving or biking to most restaurants (there are a couple you can walk to), this place should be considered.
