Space 1,000 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Beach escape four houses from the water, with ocean views from every room

BEACH LOVERS DREAM HOME!!! Our beach pad is located 4 homes from the Pacific, with ocean views out of every window in the house: kitchen, living room, bathroom and both bedrooms. The house is in the Manhattan Beach "sand section", just steps away from the Strand walk & bike paths. Our home has a full kitchen, full bath, 2 bedrooms and a living room, along with an incredible ocean view balcony. We also have 3 flat screen TVs, with Directv, Netflix, etc.

Our 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.

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.

Lastly, our beach pad is located in a GREAT neighborhood. All of our guests love that everyone knows each other. They also enjoy that everyone one heads down to the ocean each night to watch the sunset.... usually with a glass of wine. If you have a second, please read a few of our reviews!

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 Sand Section

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. :)

FANTASTIC! The perfect beach house steps to the ocean! SO clean and SO cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed eight nights here and it was so wonderful! Not fancy, but SO VERY cozy, so perfect! So reasonably priced! And we even got to meet Steve and he is beyond kind and helpful! We had some great weather! Absolutely wonderful for all six of us (including two teen daughters) with all the towels, beach towels you need! And toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, travel size shampoo/conditioner, blender, coffee maker, pots and pans, washer, dryer and everything you need! There are grocery stores close. Our favorite was Aldi's. My husband cooked a lot for us there. We rented two cars and was perfect parking at the house! It was an easy drive to Disneyland and the San Diego Zoo. And took our girls all over CA! Hollywood, Beverly Hills, San Diego.. they had us take them to many sites they have been following on Instagram including a delicious CA Donut shop. Great size bedrooms, with huge closets, mirrors and the most comfortable beds! We all slept through every single night! You can see the ocean from both bedroom windows and fall asleep hearing the beautiful sound of the ocean. The bathroom is wonderful, very large with great big mirrors. The kitchen is perfect! We made a ton of fresh smoothies and coffee every morning enjoying on the balcony with the best view that is unimaginable until you are there! I felt as though I was almost on top of the ocean from the balcony. Very quiet and peaceful home/atmosphere. The neighbors were very friendly and happy to give advice. It is a short walk to numerous restaurants. We ate at two just up the hill. One was Cafe Wild (delicious fresh fish of the day and several seafood, pasta options) and the Fish Bar ( I had lobster, SO good and the service was unbelievably excellent.) Nearby on the beach is a nice little beach stop with coffee, food, smoothies, ice cream and more. I sat there and enjoyed the ocean with a Pina Colada. I added some Malibu Rum and blended in a banana and it was scrumptious! They also rent out volleyballs, etc. The dining room/ living room are excellent. Every night our family watched movies together and made so many unforgettable memories. The TV/cable works excellent! And several movie options. The best part of all was right at this lovely home on the ocean! I would not trade going to this house for any other! That ocean view and just steps to the ocean is unbeatable! We will be back asap! Thank you so much, Steve for sharing your perfect ocean home with our family!

Wonderful property close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Manhattan Beach. The property is great, and the proximity to the beach was awesome. Steve responded very quickly to our questions and was so good to work with. We will definitely be back!

Great beach location

  • 5 of 5

We came in town over school vacation to look at colleges with our oldest and truly appreciated getting back to the beach after long days of campus tours. Super friendly, safe neighborhood and it really is just a block down the hill to the beach and the Strand. Although not right on the beach, we were able to watch the surfers from the living room window every morning. Plenty of room for four (including two teenage boys) and so great to have two full size double beds in the second bedroom for older kids. We made good use of the beach chairs and beach toys (despite the unseasonably cold weather!) and having a garage to park in was a plus on this narrow street. The house is clean and well equipped with everything that you need. If you can, rent bikes and go for a ride along the Strand - the people/volleyball/surfer/dog watching is the best - we went for long walks every day. Plenty of excellent restaurants a short drive away in downtown Manhattan Beach. Loved staying here!

A comfortable well appointed vacation house with a great balcony & views to ocean & surfers

  • 5 of 5

This home is shared by very considerate, generous owners who think of everything to make your vacation easy & relaxing. They "get it"- by providing things that cost them $$ to make your stay great. Like dish, hand, DW, W/D soaps, paper towels & toilet paper, 4 beach chairs, toys, 2 beach umbrellas. Great bedding & towels. Great Wi-Fi. Tremendous garage parking & storage. A well stocked kitchen. Every time I thought "I wish I had..." - a blanket (check), filtered frig water (check), corkscrew & glasses (check), TV in 3 rooms with great channels (check), crazy great bath & beach towels (check) and on & on. It's a beachy upper house unit that is not fancy but more comfy and well appointed by kind owners - where you feel their positive energy (it is Cali after all)!

Walkable to tons of restaurants, stores- super close to beach. Hills in MB could be a challenge for elderly or ADA vacationers- but your calves will get in shape.

Have happy hr on beach, pick this house & enjoy! Say hi to Steve & Ally from Mike & Mary (haven't met in person but good people!)

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.
