About Shannon Sackley

We are Manhattan Beach locals and love the easy living in a beach community.

Shannon Sackley purchased this condo in 2014

Why Shannon Sackley chose Manhattan Beach

On the Strand - steps to the beach- unobstructed panoramic ocean views!

What makes this condo unique

North Manhattan Beach, also known as El Porto is known for great surfing but is also less crowded than the beaches closer to the pier. We prefer the friendly neighborhood environment that comes with El Porto.

Had a fabulous vacation in this remodeled 2BR+loft w/ panoramic ocean views!!!

  • 5 of 5

The sound of the surf + 180degee views from Palos Verdes to Malibu made this an ideal vacation location. The property was recently remodeled with hardwood floors, newer s/s appliances, fireplace and view balcony. Would recommend this to anyone seeking a truly relaxing vacation at "The Beach".

Knocking on Heaven's Door

  • 5 of 5

Ok so maybe I got carried away with the title, but this place is wonderful. I spent the month of December here and enjoyed every minute of it. I had company every weekend and everyone loved the spaciousness and layout of the unit. We spent some time cooking our own meals and liked that the kitchen was large enough for several of us prepping at the same time. We found it to be well stocked. Right outside the kitchen was a separate little area for coffee which made it easy to come in off the deck to get another cup. Another plus for me was the wine frig, except I had to keep refilling it since a glass of wine at sunset became a daily ritual starting on the first day. The unit has a washer dryer so that made my stay so much easier not having to worry about finding a laundromat nearby.

The master suite and guest room are set back from living area so if someone wanted to turn in early, privacy wasn't an issue. Size of master suite was more than ample and that bed is sooo comfortable. Loved the water pressure in the shower.

The location is great - steps from the beach. I enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the surfers do their thing and once in a while get to watch a volley ball game - the nets are that close.

It wasn't a problem for me to be a mile from town. I liked the El Porto area, everyone i met was very friendly. I walked to the hair & nail salon up the block and ended up walking to the FishBar restaurant several times a week. There is a great sushi restaurant nearby too. My guests & I also enjoyed a local place for late breakfasts & there are several all within a short distance & easy walk. Just a short drive away were several shopping centers & an Arclight cinema. Town is full of cute shops & boutiques if you're into that and some outstanding restaurants. I had a car for my visit but if I didn't feel like driving to town, which was often in the evenings, I took an Über and the fare was just $5 each way.

I highly recommend staying here - there are no hotels nearby - and having a fully equipped vacation rental is something everyone should try. Ease of renting & staying here was a pleasure since the on-site manager Gaylene went out of her way to make sure our needs were met. She was also very knowledgeable about the area & gave us several recommendations. I definitely will come back again & again!!

Marina Del Rey

Exceptional Value Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

This is an exceptional ocean front large luxury unit. We such a wonderful stay at this beautiful Manhattan Beach penthouse. The views are amazing from almost every room! We had coffee watching the surfers every morning and wine while enjoying the sunset every evening.

Gaylene, the on-site manager helped us with local restaurant recommendations and even a masseuse who comes to the house!

We spent hours researching the area and found this to be the best deal in fact in comparison to others this was definitely the best value by far. Walking distance to the Pier and downtown Manhattan Beach. The beach is your front yard. The unit is well equipped with everything you could possible need. Cuddle in front of the fireplace while you listen to the sweet sounds of the ocean waves. I wish I could stay forever. Best Mother's Day weekend ever!

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

I joined my family for a Thanksgiving here. The property was spacious and comfortable for our extended family - we enjoyed nightly sunsets while sipping wine and the beach was so close the kids were in and out all day - very convenient! We plan to come again this summer.
