About D Mader

We have owned this property for 17 years, we lived here for 2 years with our young sons and then were transferred back east. The unit was an annual rental for 12 years and just got a gorgeous face lift in 2015. Enjoy all the fab upgrades like glass subway tile, new appliances, flooring and fixtures. We live in Northern California and come frequently with our now teen boys to surf and bike and breathe. Manhattan Beach is a wonderful hidden gem in Los Angeles-that is close to everything b,ut feels worlds away. We absolutely LOVE the area and will be permanent residents again one day.

D Mader purchased this apartment in 2000

Why D Mader chose Sand Section

This location is more of a locals feel. El Porto is sand section living away from the touristy part of Manhattan Beach. Wonderful walkable eateries such as the Local Yolk, El Tarasco, North End where you won't have to wait for a table. Hair cuts and nail shops near by, bakeries and coffee shops, rent a board at Players/El Porto Boards across the street and hit the surf on one of the states best surfing spots, 2 car garage makes usually tough parking a breeze, walk or bike the mile to the pier and triple the number of restaurant and shopping choices. Hit Sharkeez or OBs in the afternoon for fish tacos and to catch the game. Our home is comfortable and updated, with nice bedding, nice TVs, nice baths, laundry area, you are minutes from everything or you can sit on the deck and catch the sunset. $20 min cab ride from LAX $8-9 Uber.

What makes this apartment unique

2 car garage is nice in the beach areas, bike all along the strand up to Marina del Rey and down to Hermosa. Quiet and local-Once you come, you will want to come again. Watch the dolphins as you make a meal. Sit in the window seat and let the stress melt away as you gaze at the blue water. Quartz counters and all new inside is clean, beachy and relaxing. If you are 2 couples, or a family with older kids-this is your spot...does not appeal to younger children as much since there are stairs and the hill down to the beach is quite steep..and is not pet friendly for similar reasons.

Manhattan Beach Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of renting this property for 3.5 months! The location is amazing--literally a block to the beach and equally close to many restaurants! The interiors are tastefully done and all the little details are perfect: yummy sheets and fluffy towels plus wonderfully fragrant candles. In the spacious garage there are cruiser bikes and boogie boards. There is also a full laundry room! It is a quiet neighborhood and very convenient. I plan on staying there again and again! Plus, the owners are very thoughtful and responsive to any questions that I had!

Clean, comfortable and accomodating

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. We walked in for the first time and were overwhelmed by how clean and welcoming it was. We've stayed at other places before but they were nothing like this! There were fresh flowers around the home, a bottle of wine on the counter, and everything we needed to get started on our vacation. There were chairs, boogie boards, and towels for a fun day at the beach as well as bikes for a nice ride along the Strand. Deena went above and beyond to accommodate us from the garage to the rental time frame, and after we arrived made herself available to ensure that everything was going as planned.

The location was great. Easy access to the beach and simple to leave and come back to when we went on day trips. This is not a party area. We felt very safe and secure, and the nights were quiet. There are many restaurants within walking distance for breakfast through dinner and we took advantage of them often. A nicely stocked grocery just down the street in the pier area as well as many more restaurant options.

All around we had a fantastic stay and would gladly return in the future.

Beautiful beach apartment, one block from ocean!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in this charming Manhattan Beach apartment, one block from the Ocean. Amenities were impeccable and the property was spotless and well maintained with many extra's. No need to bring anything but your bathing suit!

Great restaurants within walking distance and biking along the strand was a highlight.

Would absolutely stay again and highly recommend. Owners were the best! Thank you~

Beach fun while you work!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this wonderful property while my husband had work in the LA area. It had everything we could possibly want for enjoyable days at the beach. Plenty of space at the beach out front but close to all the fun restaurants and activities at the pier. We had 2 teens with us as well and the bikes and boogie boards were so much fun!

Simply wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property. . .and it was even better this time.

Once we left the grocery store, we didn't go anywhere our legs couldn't take us! When we are home we drive A LOT so we just love that we didn't need a car.

There isn't much to say that hasn't already been said about the property or the location. It's really just perfect.

Relaxing, comfortable, everything you and your family need to have a wonderful time.

Thank you so much for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!
