About the property

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. :)

A Perfect Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We are so thankful that were able to stay at this lovely beach house.

The minute we walked in, we felt instantly at home. We loved the decor and, of course, could not get over the proximity to the beach! It was lovely to be able to see and hear the ocean from the living area and kitchen. We also loved sitting on the sweet little balcony and took in gorgeous sunsets each night. The place was extremely clean, the beds were super comfy and the layout suited our family of four (two adult children) very well. Steve and Ally were wonderfully accommodating. They answered all of our questions in a very timely manner and made it effortless to check in and be able to immediately relax.

We had magnificent weather and enjoyed talking about our fortuitous timing with a few of the nice neighbors. Despite the homes being close together (as in all beach communities), it was a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood. We really enjoyed seeing the neighbors gather at the end of day, at the end of the street, 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. We really appreciated the three parking spots and being close enough to walk to nearby restaurants for dinner.

We have told many friends about this marvelous place and we most certainly will want to rent here again. I'd like to go back tomorrow!

We had an absolutely perfect family vacation here at this property.

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect in every aspect. The owner was extremely accommodating throughout the entire process. All of the "little details" have been thought out; including beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, beach toys, even a high-pressure hose to clean everything off in the garage! There is a washer and dryer with available detergent to clean everything up as well. The house itself is very nice, very comfortable beds, including the pull out bed. The location is absolutely perfect, it is literally a two minute walk to the beach. This is our first trip to Manhattan Beach, it is a wonderful place to stay. Specifically, "the strand" is a several mile long walkway faced with beautiful beach houses. The beach and surf options are unbeatable. The price of this rental is a great value! We hope to come back again, and again. Thanks Steve!

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 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.
