Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in El Porto

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

Wake up to the sound of waves crashing on the beach, grab your surfboard and walk down to the best surf spot in the South Bay. Or simply breath in the fresh ocean air and relish the fabulous perfect sunny weather and laid back attitude that Southern California is famous for. There are also great restaurants within walking distance and a Strand that runs north and south for 26 miles along the beach. If you like to be active, you won't need a car!

Our cozy duplex was built in 1932 and has been continuously remodeled over the past decade but we've managed to keep all the charming elements. A few years ago, we hired an interior designer to refurnish everything from the furniture to the silverware. There's a luxurious pillow-top queen mattress in the master bedroom with high end linens. Leather furniture throughout the family room. A fully stocked kitchen with everything you'll need to create a fantastic meal. 2 flat screen LED HD TV's and Verizon FIOS high speed cable and wireless internet. The bathroom was remodeled with a favorite spa in mind. The walk in shower includes dual rain shower heads, body jets and river rocks to massage your feet. There are hardwood and travertine floors throughout. The second bedroom includes a twin size bed.

About Jeanette Ferrera

My husband and I currently live bi-coastally - we spend most of the year in Florida and head out to our Manhattan Beach bungalow in the summer. The rest of the year, we like to share our beach pad with other families either relocating to the area, on extended vacations or short business contracts. We are excited about sharing our home with you!

Jeanette Ferrera purchased this house in 2002

Why Jeanette Ferrera chose Manhattan Beach

Ever since I moved to the South Bay in 1999, I fell in love with it. The locals are fantastic. The lifestyle is perfect. After working all week, I would park my car on Friday and it wouldn't move all weekend. I have great memories of rollerblading on the Strand with my 2 dogs. We would meet up with friends and eat/drink at the local restaurants in downtown Manhattan Beach. The weather couldn't be any better and the beaches are beautiful.

We had a wonderful time staying in this charming home near the ocean. We loved walking on the Strand and to the cafe right on the beach. We also had a parking space which was a major plus, I highly recommend this property!

Quiet when you want it

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in this 2 bedroom property! Being at the north end of Manhattan Beach is a great place to be. Quiet when you want it, and close enough to get in the action when you need it. Didn't have a car for the first half of the trip and didn't miss it. Was able to walk to restaurants, markets, and gyms. Great communication from the owners and a property in really good shape. Would definitely stay again!

Cute cottage by the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property! It is a great location, very nicely furnished and comfortable. The beds were very comfy and the kitchen is well stocked so it is very easy to cook. The beach, restaurants and shops are all within walking distance which we loved. The owner went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. I would highly recommend this property. We stayed for 6 weeks and were sad to leave.

Charming beach cottage by the strand!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely beach bungalow for a little of 9 months while we figured out our next move! The Landlord is very responsive and accommodating and overall a very nice and thoughtful person. The apt is well maintained and truly a gem. We fell in love with being so close to the ocean and felt very spoiled being able to hear the waves crash as you fall sleep. Not to mention having access to south bay's best beach (Manhattan beach of course!), to the bike path and the Strand. We enjoyed walking down to the beach to watch the most beautiful sunsets. This beach rental is truly magical! We got really lucky with this apt. Thank you to the owner for everything and for being extra attentive. I highly recommend staying here!

Comfortable hotel alternative

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed for approximately 3 months while we were both on work assignments in L.A.. It was a comfortable alternative to a hotel with excellent bathroom and shower, good kitchen and common living room. The place has great character and we highly recommend a stay there. The Strand is just down the street and it is close to all amenities of Manhattan Beach.
