“We loved Seaview!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Above all, James and his team went over and above to assist us (a young family travelling around the world) in making our stay with them a memorable one. We were treated so well and I have nothing but praise for the way in which the apartment was presented and the way the management team treat their guests - we sincerely appreciated the kindness shown to us!

We were only on a 2 day stopover from the UK to NZ, but everything that could be done to make our stay a pleasant one, was done.

The beach is beautiful and the weather was amazing for us. Being able to run for miles along the beach whilst taking in stunning views, humming birds and beautiful gardens was something I really enjoyed. We also highly recommend the nearby café: 'local Yolk' awesome breakfasts and great for kids!

We wholeheartedly recommend the Sea View Inn at the Beach

Room Tip: We stayed in a 'boutique' style 2-bedroom apartment above the Cake Shop - it was excellent...

Friendly,accommodating staff. We stayed in one of the standard rooms with a limited view of the ocean one night, and a larger room with a better view for two nights. Both rooms were clean and comfortable. It is very close to the beach and many restaurants. LAX is about 15 minutes away. I just made reservations for my second stay. Free parking!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. Some of the rooms don't have an ocean view.

Had another stay. Great value room. $20 taxi from lax. Use of bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas a hit for a lay over day. Such a Cali cool location so close to the airport.

Staff always understanding of layover too.

This was our first stay at the Seaview Inn and we will be back. Our apartment was very clean and we so appreciated the provided parking space. However, we wished we had two night stands and lamps to be able to read by, instead of just one. James and the other gentlemen were always very nice and quick to get us beach towels, umbrellas and bicycles. It's a great location where we walked and biked along the beaches for miles and enjoyed the great restaurants within a block. We loved our time there!

First of all - THANK YOU for not only offering on-site parking two blocks up from the sand but for it being FREE - at no cost. The three gentlemen who worked the front desk were all friendly, new us by name and always smiling. We were offered beach cruisers and rode them every day to local restaurants, the beach and as far away as Venice beach (I wimped out and took Uber back).

The swimming pool is very private, clean and warm. If traveling as a couple - ask for the room right above the pool with the deck just overlooking. Towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, bike locks, the list is long of what they have to offer.

The Executive Housekeeper was up and walking property early each morning and was the first smile and hello I received. Our room was fully stocked with kitchen supplies, extra bedding, and plenty of towels. I am very particular on clean rooms and beds...this property met the test.

We had to check out because it was sold out at the end of our 6 day stay but returned the next week for 4 more days.

LOVE THIS PLACE & THE PEOPLE!

Book early - they do fill up - don't forget to eat at Sloopy's for breakfast too :)

Room Tip: All rooms great - East side of Highland are higher up for better views (ask for top floor) but West...

This was our fifth stay at the Seaview Inn in north Manhattan Beach. James is the best. Really took care if us from new strand cruisers to umbrellas and beach chairs. Several good restaurants in the neighborhood.
