"We had a wonderful time at the Strand Beach House.  It was clean and comforatble.  The upstairs bedrooms are really protected from the noise in the main house downstairs.  The patio out front (with a spacious hot tub) is a perfect place to people watch and catch the sunset.  This was a nice alternative to staying in a hotel... all in all a wonderful place for a vacation."

Thanks from all of us."

"We had a great time staying at The Strand House.  We were so pleased when we arrived and found the house spotlessly clean.  Plus the new appliances, plush bath towels and deluxe home entertainment center really made the whole experience great."

"What a fabulous place to stay!  The million dollar panoramic view is incredible.  We couldn't have imagined a better setup condo on the beach.  Being able to keep an eye on the kids from a plush 2nd story living room, while they're out on the beach, is priceless.  With the full kitchen, high-speed internet, a plasma TV, and stero... that condo is perfect.  With the windows open and the ocean breeze coming through it was super comfortable and relaxing.  The private grill, cruiser bikes, boardwalk and patios are icing on the cake.  We couldn't have imagined a better location and arrangement.  And watching the dolphins swim in the morning was a real treat.  We couldn't help but think about what a great place it would be for a romatic getaway too.  I spent a lot of time searching for the perfect SoCal beach-spot at a reasonable price, and I know there is no other place out there with that combination of qualify features for a few hundred bucks per night.  It couldn't have been better.  Thanks Shawn! 
Best Regards

"I want to thank you for providing an ideal location for our company meeting.  My two business partners and I enjoyed the house we rented and all the amenities it offered.  We were able to have our meetings while taking in the amazing view of the ocean.  At night, we enjoyed the variety of restaurants that are within walking distance of the house.  The location, view, and value exceeded all of our expectations.  We all hope that we can return again."

"Thanks Shawn for making our first trip to California amazing.  Staying at your beach house with the beautiful beach just out front is exactly what a trip to southern California should be like.  Actually, we had such a great time in Manhattan, Hermosa, and Venice beaches that we actually never got a chance to visit LA.  And you know what?  I don't regret it.  When I return to LA, I will definitely stay at The Strand House again."

"What an incredible spot.... it was.  Grand Central for our wedding get-to-gether, and we soaked up beach fulture from a front row seat.

This is one of the best beaches around due to its proximity to shops and restaurants. The constant entertainment here on weekends comes in many forms, most notably as volleyball and surfing tournaments. This stretch of sand can claim to be both the inspiration and hangout of the Beach Boys in their early days, as well as the birthplace of beach volleyball.

Manhattan Beach has been the symbol of the laid-back California beach lifestyle. But a surge in upscale hot spots is transforming the town's nightlife and catering to a chic clientele.

El Porto still manages to surprise with a down-to-earth core that never seems to forget what's great about California living.

Garrison Frost, The Aesthetic

The Beach Boys used to hang out at this wide, friendly beach backed by beautiful oceanview homes... Manhattan [Beach] has some of the best surfing around, restrooms, lifeguards, and volleyball courts.
