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 Manhattan Beach

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.

Manhattan Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed at the beach house. Stunning home, ocean view, short walk to the pier for eating and shopping. Beautiful patio to enjoy listening to the waves, eating, drinking, and socializing. Spacious place for children or family friends. Big kitchen with high-end appliances to cook any meal you like. House comes with everything you need for the beach: towels, chairs, coolers, boogie boards, beach cruises/bikes. Plenty of books, games, and movies if you'd like to relax and stay in for the day/night. Lastly, they had heard I had surgery a week prior to our stay and left me flowers. Very sweet and generous. We highly recommend this place.

Great for families or anyone that likes the beach

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home from the 27th of December to the 3rd of January and had a great time with our young family. My 18 month old loved that he could walk around and we loved that there were no stairs to worry about! Everything was very clean (immaculate fridge, counters, cutlery etc) and organized and we never struggled to find anything we could have needed. There were toys for the kids for the beach and loads of towels and chairs. We simply packed up and walked down and could have 30 min or 3 hours at the beach without issue. The beds were awesome – comfortable and big! The bathrooms were perfect for us. The guest bathroom was great for bathing young kids and the master en suite had a great shower with amazing water pressure. (These things matter on vacation!)

The location is really the best part though. You can't really top a spot where you could open the front door, tilt your head ever so slightly to the left and catch a gorgeous west coast sunset every evening. Of course there is furniture outside if you want to watch it seated, with a book, and a glass of wine. I preferred to do it with a 4 year old on my shoulders and an 18 month old in my arms and my wife at my side. It was so great being able to share the beauty of California with our kids so easily.

We did the walk down the Strand to Manhattan Beach Blvd just about every day and could walk to breakfast or dinner as we pleased with lots of great dining less than 1km away. Our rental car company didn’t hold our reservation when our arrival flight was delayed, but once we got to the house, we considered not getting a car at all except for a trip to Disneyland with the kids. You really wouldn’t need one if all you want to do is go for strolls and relax. The grocery store is a $4 Uber away and even going to Wholefoods a bit further only cost me about $12US return with about 5 full shopping bags – we were set for the week!

The neighbours on both sides were very nice and loaned us some tools for an afternoon. Others we bumped into were very sweet to the kids. It has a great community feel.

Jane was great - whenever we needed anything, she responded immediately. We didn't need much so I feel like we hardly tested her - but I know she would have come through based on her great response time for the couple menial questions I did have.

We would love to go back.

Great family beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves staying in the beach cottage. We are a family of four (two under the age of 5) and the house was perfect for us.

Close to the beach and piers, plenty of space for the family, and great views of the ocean. We will be staying again.

Family beach lovers

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful vacation in MB (including two teenagers 13 & 15). The home is well appointed with everything you need. Owners are responsive and helpful. Pictures don't do this home justice. The indoor and outdoor spaces are very comfortable with room to spread out. Location couldn't have been better near the beach, bike/walk trail and downtown restaurants/shops. We could have been happy all week just hanging at the house, walking/biking and playing at the beach. We did tear ourselves away on a couple occasions to visit some colleges and sightsee. Next time maybe we can just leave the car in the garage. We'll definitely be back.

220 Fourth Street in Manhattan Beach was a Delight!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at your lovely house and found it to be the perfect home-away-from-home. You the owners were very accommodating and quick to respond to one little problem with the dishwasher, in which was quickly remedied and working! We loved the way that your house was so fully stocked and the offer to help ourselves to the contents of the kitchen cabinets, such as spices, olive oil, etc...I had forgotten conditioner and felt panic over having to go to the drug store to buy some, but was comforted by the fact that the master bathroom had several different kinds. We also enjoyed using the nice Weber Grill out on the back patio and the outdoor tables and furniture, surrounded by beautiful landscaping and potted plants, which made us feel like we were home.

This is a perfect place for empty nesters and small families. Thank you so much, Jane and Terry for making us feel so welcomed!!
