About Kristen

The owners, Jane and Terry, have been Manhattan locals for 30 years. They live nearby and can offer advice, information and personal attention during your stay at the Beach Cottage.

Kristen purchased this house in 1995

Why Kristen chose Sand Section

Our family purchased our beach cottage to enjoy the unique small town environment of Manhattan Beach….Manhattan is only twenty minutes from downtown Los Angeles and ten minutes from LAX but a million miles away from the tempo of the big city. Now that our children are grown we have the opportunity to share our second home with others.

What makes this house unique

The Cottage is located on a quiet residential walk street two short blocks from the sand, water, strand and v-ball courts. It is a quick walk to MB Pier, restaurants, Farmer's Market (Tues. 11-5), The Plaza, and several grocery stores (Vons on MB Blvd and Boccato's on Highland and Longfellow). We are 15 mins from LAX, and 40 minutes from Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm.

If Christmas is a travel time for you, don't miss viewing the amazing Manhattan Beach fireworks show from our balcony or from the beach sand.

Quintessential Manhattan Beach Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

I lived in Hermosa Beach/Manhattan Beach for many years before moving to Santa Fe, NM and so have specific and high standards for what qualifies as the perfect Manhattan Beach living experience. This home checks the entire list: First, it is a cute, single-story beach cottage -- very nicely remodeled but still authentic. Everyone ogles the monstrous, three-story homes on the strand but I'll take a beach bungalow any time. Second, it is on a walk street west of Highland, which means it is quiet, has unobstructed ocean views, looks/feels like a real neighborhood and is less than three short blocks to the beach. The street where the home is located is close enough to downtown Manhattan Beach to enable you to abandon your car and just walk to restaurants, shops etc.

The home itself is very comfortable, with a large master suite, very comfortable office/den and updated kitchen. It was fully stocked with everything necessary. Importantly, there is also a garage. Finding street parking in this area, especially during tourist season, is challenging in this neighborhood so having a garage is a huge bonus. In addition, the owners also provide a full arsenal of beach gear: umbrellas, beach chairs, cooler, etc. etc. Not to mention bikes, a skateboard and pretty much any other piece of gear you would want to transform into a beach bum.

I also found the owners to be very responsive to my questions. Their hospitality and the home's charm, comfort and location made this a perfect week-long vacation back in my old neighborhood.

I did notice a previous visitor who noted the home construction on the lot next door. While workers did arrive Mon-Thurs. at around 8 a.m. we did not have a problem with noise during our stay. Construction is a fact of life in this area as people buy charming homes such as this one, tear them down and build hotel-like monstrosities that block the sun. Generally speaking, it may be good for anyone visiting the South Bay beach cities to first inquire about construction in the immediate neighborhood. However, I can't recommend this home highly enough. We had a wonderful time staying here.

A comfortable and lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our two weeks in this very comfortable home, ideally located in Manhattan beach with excellent access to the Beach, the Strand, and town. All aspects of the home- sheets, towels, lighting, comfortable furniture, and well equipped kitchen enabled us to have a wonderful time. We hope to return !

Outstanding beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Loved my 2+ weeks long stay here. The home was exceptionally well-stocked and provided everything needed for a comfortable vacation stay. The walk street location close to the beach was fabulous. The owners - who live nearby - were very friendly and helpful, as well. I look forward to returning.

Great Place to Relax and Refuel!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit here in the fall of 2017! Very easy drive from LAX. Enjoyed the short walk to the beach and downtown MB shops--Peet's Coffee is awesome. Great shops and the corner bakery with the macaroons was YUM! The house had everything that we needed and was very comfortable. The owners are wonderful. This is a repeat visit in the near future.

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

We loved rhe property and the location. Easy to get to from the airport and easy to walk to several restaurants and the beach. We booked relatively last minute and the manager Kristen was very quick to respond and so accommodating. The owners leave their phone number and are quick to answer any questions. We would love to stay there again!!

Close to everything! Great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this home..we felt like it was our home. Great views of the beach. It was close to Universal Studios, the Hollywood sign and walk of fame, Venice Beach and the Getty.

There was not one thing missing ...they have bikes, barbecue, beach wagon, games, etc.

Thanks for allowing us to stay,

Jim and Cristin Harvey, Foster and Hannah
