About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

The location is unbeatable. This area of the Strand (our boardwalk) is very private, as the homes are raised above passerby's allowing for privacy even on the deck and jacuzzi tub. Less foot-traffic than the central Manhattan Beach area near the pier, though you can use our bicycles to get to that busier part of town in just minutes. Also within easy walking distance (a couple blocks) are many excellent restaurants, charming breakfast eateries, yoga studios, juice bars and gastro-pubs, as well as some boutiques for shopping, massage, etc. For those thinking of trying their hand on a surfboard, this is the spot-- known as one of LA county's best surfing waves. It's a treat just to watch the surfers and dolphins swimming by in the morning. This really is the best of both worlds... laid back beach living with the all the comforts of Manhattan Beach!

3 bedrooms/2 full bath (1 King and 2 Queen Beds-- two beds overlook the ocean) sleeps 6.

2 complimentary bicycles included with rental

50 inch Plasma TV with DVD, Blue Ray, HD cable and the ultimate surround sound speakers.

High Speed Internet Access.

Patio Space: one with hot tub

Fully stocked kitchen with beautiful appliances (coffee maker, blender, toaster oven, microwave, spice rack, and dishwasher).

Coin operated washer & dryer available.

We have a high quality Weber Barbecue, for those who love to barbecue

Steps to Manhattan Beach's North End, with shopping, dining, and night life.

We are baby-friendly! Crib and high chair available upon request.

Just please let us know before your arrival...

Why Sandra chose Sand Section

We have always loved Manhattan Beach! It is one of the best kept secrets in Los Angeles. So close to everything yet with such a unique beach culture that is so different from the rest of Los Angeles. We have traveled around the world and we think this is the best place on earth!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was perfect for our family wedding week! We couldn't have asked for a better setting to enjoy all that Manhattan Beach has to offer. We would love to rent again!

Outstanding Family Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at The Strand House for our beach vacation. The location directly on the Strand is outstanding. The views of the beach and ocean from the patio, kitchen and dining room are fantastic. We saw dolphins almost every day!

The house itself is casual and quite roomy, and the beds and bedrooms are very comfortable. The two upstairs bedrooms have great views of the ocean and get a nice breeze at night.

We had a great time using the bikes to ride along the Strand several miles south and back. We also used the Weber Grill with the built in natural gas line, which was very convenient (no worrying about a propane tank running out).

The city of Manhattan Beach has a lot to offer in terms of restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, etc., and is walkable from the house if you don’t mind some uphill walking.

As some other reviews have noted, the driveway is extremely tight. Follow the owners’ instructions about backing down and consider limiting yourself to a small or midsize car. We got used to it over the week we stayed, but the first couple times in and out were difficult.

Overall, we had a very nice stay and would recommend it for your beach vacation!

Beach front bliss

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the strand house! The views are incredible from both the upstairs and downstairs. The house is spacious and provided everything we needed for a family of 5. Our favorite part was the hot tub on the patio.

Great sister reunion; house location great. House parking extremely difficult.

  • 4 of 5

Recommend driving to get to parking space straight in and out. Turning onto Ocean Ave is extremely difficult because of super narrow drive and concrete steps. Mirror on building would be helpful to see oncoming traffic. Don’t even think about bringing a large vehicle..WILL NOT Fit.

Bikes on property were awesome for riding the miles of bike paths. Wooden stairs going to beach needs repair, previous comment in reviews.

Jacuzzi worked great; residential area great for quiet stays not noisy late night gatherings.

House was clean but needed some work.

  • 3 of 5

The house was ok. Beds were comfortable. Parking was extremely difficult and we had to find parking on side streets everyday which was very challenging.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to leave is some feedback, however it's unfortunate that you deducted 2 stars for the parking when we provide a parking space and I give very detailed information about how to park and what kind of cars will fit before you even commit to the booking. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise.
