About the property

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

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. Great restaurants are within walking distance. The Strand sidewalk 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 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 HD TV's and Frontier 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 Sand Section

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.

"Lovely Beach Getaway"

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks while we visited family in the area. The apartment is super clean and steps from the beach. As soon as we walked in, we felt instantly at home. The neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful despite the homes being located close together (as in all beach communities). We enjoyed seeing the locals gather at the end of day on the Strand, to watch the sunset together. You could tell there was a cohesiveness to the community, which added a nice sense of security and peace to our visit.

The owner was a dream to work with and was extremely accommodating throughout the entire process. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped (including a BBQ on the deck). It was also a plus to have 2 parking spots. We would absolutely recommend this property and look forward to returning soon!

Perfect location for a summer family getaway

  • 5 of 5

I booked this location because of its proximity to the beach. Did not expect it to be as close as it was...basically down the hill and access to the beach was easy. Loved the vibe of the place. It was cozy and felt like the perfect beach house.

It was also close to some great eateries. Manhattan Beach is also very family friendly, so if you have young kids and want a beach getaway, this is an ideal place to do it.

It definitely felt like a home away from home and the neighbors were lovely too. I highly recommend this place. I'll definitely be back.

This 2 bedroom apartment was great! The host was amazing - everything was very neat and clean. Only a block away from the beach which was a plus. Can't wait to come back and stay here again!!

I stayed here with my brother and sister-in-law for a week.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable for the three of us, close to a great swimming beach with life guards. It was quiet, even though it is close to a fairly busy street. I really appreciated working with Jeanette who responded to my emails and questions promptly. I would consider staying here again if I vacation in this area in the future. We left feeling very rested when we left. Thank you, Jeanette.

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!
