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.

2 Patio Spaces: one with hot tub, and one with outdoor shower.

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...

About Sandra

Why Sandra chose Manhattan Beach

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

Thank you for sharing your beach-front home with us. We woke up to see many surfers hitting the waves before changing into their work clothes - wow what a way to start the day! We rode your bikes all the way to the end of the strand (south) just past Redondo beach and back yesterday, and today we rode to Venice and Santa Monica. There isn't anything much better than California weather and riding bikes along the beach so far! Hearing the waves, seeing the beach and watching the people and their dogs. There is never a dull moment. Everyone was grabbing their cell phones and cameras for pictures of the beautiful sunset. It's awesome how this house has so many windows to enjoy the views from not one, but 2 bedrooms (thank for getting blinds!), the Kitchen, den and Kitchen table. We love the fluffy white towels, a big plus. (Don't let anyone ever use clorox on them- it makes them stiff/hard.)

Our family often gets 2 bedrooms at resorts, but found a house on the beach brings us together more in the den and porch. We've saved money having breakfast and some of our meals here. With views of the beach from 2 sides of the kitchen, being in the kitchen is no problem! : ) ... for either preparation or cleanup.

We've enjoyed the beach view from the kitchen table during our meals and games of scrabble and card games... while listening to the sound of the waves. We slept with the sliding glass doors cracked to listen to the ocean while we slept. We hate to leave this wonderful place - The Browns from San Antonio, TX



P.S. Being a flight attendant with American has enabled our family to go on lots of vacations. Our teenage children ranked this vacation as one of their favorites. We rented 2 bikes in Hermosa Beach so our family could bike ride together on the strand - Our daughter even brought her roller blades from home to try on the strand. Thanks for the wonderful memories.

Simply Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

In search of the quintessential California beach experience, I'd planned a weekend here with some friends for my 50th birthday and the Strand House did not disappoint. The house was perfect for our group of 5 - we enjoyed the quiet but convenient location, endless oceanfront views, watching the surfers from the patio, riding the bikes up and down the Strand, eating breakfast on the patio bar and enjoying a soak in the hot tub as the sun went down. The house is only a 5-10 minute walk to some great restaurants (the Four Daughters was a fave) and about a 20 minute walk to get to the heart of Manhattan Beach restaurants/shops. The house is a bit older than some others on the Strand, which just adds to it's "beachy" character. Wifi was solid and TV even came with Netflix! Sandra and Shawn were very responsive and courteous to deal with, even allowing some flexibility around check-in, check-out times to co-ordinate with our flights. All in all, it was a fabulous experience (my first with VRBO!) and we would definitely return.

Great place to enjoy the strand

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our family trip to this spot with 3 little ones for its easy access to the beach/strand and views. The deck with afternoon sun was also fun for people watching. Driveway is quite narrow and challenging for larger cars, but doable. Upper deck is not kid-safe but it was easy to just keep the doors shut. The hottub was also great.

Charming house with everything you need. Hot tub was excellent after long bike or hike trips.

Nice place. Be careful of driveway best to enter straight in. Loved having bikes and BBQ. Quiet spot great for surfer watching and sunsets! Extremely comfortable beds, lots of soft towels and well outfitted kitchen. Enjoy.

Pre-Winter beach break

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property is outstanding with a great view of the beach. The property was as described with all the amenities needed to ensure a great vacation. We would stay here again should we return to Manhattan Beach. The property manager John was a great help during and after our stay. We were having a package being shipped to the house via USPS and should have arrived on our second day but of course it didn't and in fact arrived after we vacated the property and just left at the property without getting the required signatures. Because we had text tracking on we learned immediately that the package was left at the property so we immediately called John who went to the house and retrieved the package and drove over to a relatives house a short distance away and dropped it off. Kudos to John as this in my mind is going over and above to help someone out.

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you! I had never rented a beach house before so was a little reluctant. Once I did, I knew everything was going to be fine since questions were answered promptly and everything was handled professionally. The amazing view(with the exception of a few beach porta potties), clean linen and towels, jacuzzi, bikes, beach chairs and boogie boards, great TV, well stocked kitchen, patio set up with BBQ and super clean house made for a great trip! The house is just as lovely in person as in the photos. We enjoyed walking to the pier, hanging out on the great patio and beach and listening to ocean waves all night. I also appreciate having a coin washer and dryer accessible. Having several trash cans made dealing with trash easy. The steps were challenging for my 97 yr old mom but she managed. We would definitely love to return.

A+ experience!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you! Yes, the little bungalow was charming. I loved falling asleep to the sound of the ocean, the perpetual breeze, the ocean front kitchen, the delightful red brick patio and the bike path was right out the front door.

I was disappointed that there was construction out in front but we did our best to look past it and next time I WILL NOT bring a car. An Uber to the grocery store is cheap and would have been much simpler. The location away from the Pier kept it quiet in the evenings, a big plus!

You and your family were great to work with.

A+ THANK YOU!!!
