About Dan

We work in the film and graphic design industries and like to apply our design aesthetic to our rental properties. We own and manage several properties in the area. We design our properties to be luxurious homes where we would want to stay ourselves.

Dan purchased this house in 2014

Why Dan chose Manhattan Beach

15 minutes south of LAX, only 1 1/2 blocks from the best beaches on the West Coast! Walk to everything - shops, restaurants, coffee and a fabulous night life! The Manhattan Beach Pier is a short walk with aquariums, great surfing, boogie boarding, volleyball or just relax and read a good book. Easy drive to all the LA tourist attractions - Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Universal Studios, Disneyland and Dodger Stadium. You will love this cozy beach community!

What makes this house unique

If you have ever stayed in the South end of Manhattan Beach, you will understand why it is so special. It's an easy walk to family friendly beaches, great surfing, and the wonderful MB downtown area! Leave your car in the garage and live the beach lifestyle!

Clean, spacious, modern beach house in prime location at Manhattan beach, with several amenities

  • 5 of 5

Adult family of 5 (59yo and 4 x 28-31yo adults) , stayed here in early November 2016 for 4 nights.

Location is perfect, steps from Manhattan beach and about a 10 minute walk to Manhattan beach pier. House is on a quiet street, with quiet neighbours. Manhattan beach is quiet, safe, clean, and huge!

The beach house is clean, spacious and comfortable. We were surprised with the number of amenities available in the house (beach towels, beach bags, sun hats, bicycles, beach chairs, boogie boards, kites, wine fridge, washer/dryer, were some that we used). This beach house has everything that you could possibly need.

The owner responds quickly by email. Our only regret was that we didn't stay here longer! Highly recommended.

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 adults, 2 small kids) spent 6 nights here at the end of August. Prior to our arrival, Dan was incredibly responsive and helpful answering any questions that we had and providing guidance on parking, etc. He also checked in with us while we were there as well. The house, itself, was perfect for us. It has three floors- top floor includes the living space/kitchen/dining room and bottom floors are dedicated to bedrooms. Rooms are spacious with big windows. Linens and towels are clean and fresh. The house was equipped with everything that we needed including a variety of beach supplies (chairs, toys, umbrellas, beach towels, bikes, scooters, etc)- which far exceeded our expectations! Kitchen was great and cooking was very easy (ample dishes, pots/pans, etc). Having access to BBQ was a plus as well. Wifi was reliable and fast. The pictures on the site are current. The house is also in an excellent location- only 1.5 blocks away from the beach, ~10-15 minutes walk to downtown Manhattan Beach/pier and ~5 minutes away from local market. We would happily recommend this house to anyone staying in the area and would certainly look to stay again next time we come.

Beautiful Home in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This home is located, as advertised, 1 1/2 blocks up from the beach and close to downtown Manhattan Beach (and pier) to the north and Hermosa Beach (and pier) to the south. The photos are updated and the home is in very good condition.

Two adult size bikes, three children's bikes, two Razor scooters, a couple of boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, a cooler, a wagon, and beach toys are all provided. The kitchen and bathrooms are well stocked so I recommend taking inventory before you go shopping. Laundry detergent and fabric softener were also provided. There is a working gas bbq on the balcony off the kitchen which makes preparing meals very easy.

Although this house is not air conditioned, the breeze off the ocean keeps it cool. There are ceiling fans in the bedrooms and portable fans if you need them. The neighbors were friendly and parking our two cars was not a problem.

The Homeowner was easy to work with and answered all my questions before I booked. When I arrived, the House Manager was there to meet me and she went over everything.

I highly recommend this vacation house. I checked out the competition on my trip and this house was the best!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We were in town to for our daughters college graduation and my 80 year old parents, and 4 other adults were also staying at the house. It was an ideal layout with three bedrooms and two baths on the middle floor, and a bed and bath on the bottom floor for the younger adults. The beds are very comfortable, and having four bathrooms made the morning routine great. The top floor has a nice view of the ocean, well equipped kitchen with many supplies not usually offered that usually have to be purchased, a tv room and separate dining and seating area, and another bathroom. We had great family meals at the big round table and the layout allows for many options for people to have their own space. The bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs were awesome and the beach is only a block walk down the hill. The towns of Manhattan beach and Hermosa beach are in easy walking distant. Their is a nice gourmet market and restaurants close to the property. The only cautionary note is that there are a lot of stairs inside and outside the property, so you definitely get a workout. My parents were very comfortable here and the house and it's amenities really made for a very fun family time. We would highly recommend, especially if you have a large gathering.

Manhattan Beach has ocean breezes that provide clean air and summer temperatures that are 10-20 degrees F cooler than the inland areas of Southern California. The Sand Section is notable for its quiet walk streets adjacent to the ocean.
