Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in El Porto - Surf N' Sand Beach House

Beach escape three houses from the water with ocean views from every room

BEACH LOVERS DREAM HOME!!! Our beach pad is located 3 homes from the Pacific, with ocean views out of every window. We rent the top two bedroom, one bath. Both top and bottom residences have their own private entrances. The top unit has a full kitchen, full bath and living room, with an ocean view balcony. There is an ocean view from all rooms: kitchen, living room, bath and both bedrooms. The house is in the sand section, only 3 homes from the beach, and the Strand bike path. A brisk walk along the beach gets you to the Manhattan Beach pier in minutes. Stroll to the downtown Manhattan Beach Starbucks or Peet's coffee for your morning coffee or brew your own at the house and chill on the balcony. El Porto and Manhattan Beach have a plethora of shops and restaurants. The garage has room for a mid size car and there are two additional spots in front of the garage in the driveway. Parking is in high demand in Manhattan Beach, so having three parking spots is key.

About The Owner

We started our lives together as a family in Manhattan Beach, CA and purchased this property a few years prior to getting married. We are California natives who love the South Bay. We look forward to our weekends in Manhattan Beach when we can kick off our shoes, put on our flip-flops and enjoy a walk to downtown for an ice cold margarita and our favorite meal. We look forward to opening up our home to other 'beach lovers' from around the world. We hope our guests love our home and beach escape as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this house in 1997

Why The Owner chose Manhattan Beach

My husband bought this property with his father who passed away over a decade ago now. We will forever cherish this property as it reminds us of Ray. This is a family home that is full of love and happiness.

What makes this house unique

We love this home as we started our journey in life together in this home. We were married and brought our daughter home to the beach! She would say "hi" to surfers off of our balcony all day long. We have held onto this property because of its serene escape from reality. Once you pull into the driveway, park & hang your keys, you won't use them again until Monday morning. Everything you need is walking distance from the front door. The beach/strand is literally three homes from the front door. Paradise. :)

It was tremendous... Nice place one block from ocean very clean everything you need great walking area to Manhattan pier 1.6 miles each way.. Beach chairs boogie boards surf board washer and dryer. I didn't have a car I recommend it. Next time I will. I really wanted a bike but legality takes over, but next door neighbor offered bikes he was great. Steve and his wife did it up great. Closest super market about 1.3 miles away. I recommend it highly thanks Steve from Boston

Great beach getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Great keyless entry property that is one block from the beach! We enjoyed hearing the waves from inside this property at night. We were able to BBQ and the kitchen had everything we needed to make dinners. All you need is a bathing suit! A great escape! Owner was responsive to things that needed fixed upon our arrival and suggestions. (ill sliding screen door, and non functional bathroom soap dispensers). They were minor, and we were not inconvenienced.

I would stay here again if I liked a REALLY soft bed. The beds have comfortable linens, and sure are cozy to get into... but the mattresses on all the beds were not supportive. The kids didn't mind, but all the adults had a sore back every morning! lol

This old Grandma had her dream come true --taking her Grandkids to explore the ocean!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The beach house had everything we needed to prepare our meals. Steve was very helpful in working with us due to our flights in and out of LA. And we were able to attend my grandson's kindergarten graduation. Only one problem -- we got tickets for parking our cars on Tuesday from 1-3. So be aware of that. $106 fine. Neighbors were friendly for most part , however my daughters felt intimidated by them on our last day. We were able to also go to Disneyland and Universal studios and it was only about 40 minutes away.

Thank you Steve and Ally for opening your home to us.

Fantastic and Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We could not have chosen a better place to spend our time in California with our kids. The home is very convenient to many restaurants and shops and of course the beach is right there. The home comes with very nice beach chair(s), umbrella, towel(s), boogie board(s) and some kids sand toys. The beds are out of this world comfortable as is the overall feel from the home. Honestly we cannot wait to return and spend some more time here - we had and absolutely fantastic time, met some of the neighbors and overall made some very memorable family memories. - until next time :)

Great North Manhattan Beach Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Owners were very helpful and accommodating, and very friendly neighbors up and down the block. Ocean views from balcony off living area were very nice and the sound of the waves breaking was peaceful and relaxing. Spacious, clean, light, bright and updated interior spaces made this a very comfortable place for our family to spend quality time together. Walking the Strand and enjoying bicycling and great dining options were highlights of our time at Manhattan Beach. Easy access to LAX and major freeways to key locations in the LA area. Would definitely rent this property again!

This is a beach lovers dream with miles of sand both North and South. To the south are the beach communities of Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Palos Verdes. Further down the way you will stumble on Long Beach, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach then Laguna Beach. To the north is Marina Del Rey, Venice, Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades and Malibu. The sand and bike path is three homes from the front door of this home. Downtown Manhattan Beach is only a 15 minute stroll. There are a number of local restaurants only minutes away. A car is not a necessity but might be helpful for those activities out of the area such as Disneyland, Griffith Park, Hollywood, Malibu and Beverly Hills.
