About the property

Stunning 3000 Sq Ft, 3 Level, 3 Bedroom Home- Fab Game Room, Grand Piano, Views!

Exquisite listing! STEPS TO BEACH, TOWN, TENNIS - LOCK YOUR KEYS IN YOUR SUITCASE! Absolutely Turnkey... Available also for longer term lease at significantly discounted rates. Please contact me to discuss your specific needs!

You won't find another property quite like this one! Perched high atop and at the end of a dead-end street, this 3000 sq. ft. home is UNIQUE to Manhattan Beach due to its one-of-a kind location, beautiful vistas, privacy, proximity to everything, 5-star amenities and chic resort hotel feel.

2 short blocks to the sand, 4 even shorter blocks to chic downtown, and adjacent to beautiful tennis and basketball courts, our home is uniquely situated and surrounded by a beautiful park and lush greenery on two sides offering unparalleled privacy and none of that "hemmed in" feeling typical in this most desirable "Sand Section" area of Manhattan Beach.

Roll out of bed and onto the tennis courts every morning. Then immediately cool off in the ocean before your 5-minute walk into lovely downtown to dine and shop. Park your car and lock the keys in your suitcase!

Our gorgeous, light-filled designer home is truly a rare combination of luxury, views, location, privacy, high-end furnishings and amenities, and a certain SPA/luxury hotel VIBE. Appointed and furnished with taste and panache, you will only be disappointed when you have to leave.

The top floor is a light-flooded great room with beautiful views on two sides. High end kitchen with granite counter tops, center island/breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances (Sub-zero, Fisher Paykel, Jenn-Air), furnished with new down-filled white designer couches, baby grand digital piano, and fireplace atop limestone floors.

Gather around for your meals at our one of a kind dining table – a 500-pound mesquite tree root serves as the base – or opt to dine al fresco on the beautiful view deck with gas BBQ at the ready and white cabana-like curtains creating the feel of being on the roof of a hip boutique hotel.

The spacious game room on the 1st floor is adjacent to the tennis courts, has a comfy large sectional, fireplace, large flat screen TV, 3- in-1 game table that converts from billiards to air hockey to ping pong! There’s a round table with four chairs for cards, chinese checkers or any of the large selection of great board games/toys furnished for your enjoyment during your stay).

On its own level of the home, your sumptuous master suite offers a private retreat with a king size memory foam bed, a secluded covered patio with lounge furniture perfect for reading or relaxing after a bath, and a luxurious master bath with sunken Jacuzzi tub and extra-large walk in shower.

The first floor includes 2 additional bedrooms, full bath, laundry room with state of the art front loading washer/dryer and quartz counter tops, and a wonderful large media/game room.

The 2nd bedroom is quite large with a twin trundle great for kids or adults wanting to sleep in their own bed. The 3rd bedroom is furnished with a comfortable queen sized memory foam bed. Both bedrooms have views overlooking the park.

We are literally next door to Live Oak Park which has beautiful tennis and basketball courts, baseball fields and batting cages, and two separate kid's playgrounds - one fully enclosed beautifully renovated "tot lot" with several great play structures, gazebo, benches and greenery. We offer access to our well-equipped sports closet which includes boogie boards, tennis and badminton rackets, beach chairs, umbrellas, and an assortment of volleyball, basketball, soccer balls.

This unique home has it all, and is a place where you will create wonderful lasting memories. Please Email Or Call Me To Discuss Your Specific Needs. I Do My Best To Ensure That Your Stay Is An Exquisite One!

Note: this is a high end family home in a wonderful neighborhood - NOT A PARTY HOUSE. Absolutely NO parties or excessive noise. There is a no shoe policy which is in keeping with our cultural and hygiene practices. Also open to longer term lease. Please contact me to discuss.

About Nancy

We are a local family who are very committed to this gem of a beach town. We are grateful for everything that this wonderful little city provides in terms of its beauty and sophistication, sense of community, the beach, schools, hip restaurants and shops, and close proximity to all the culture and creativity of LA, but outside of the bustle, crime, traffic and attitude of the west side and Hollywood. Very involved and passionate about the arts, a former entertainment industry executive now currently serving as Cultural Arts Commissioner for the City of Manhattan Beach. Hugely into yoga, and willing to give you a private yoga lesson if I'm in town!

Getaway with Style

  • 5 of 5

Why choose a cookie cutter hotel room when you can luxuriate in a 3000 sq. ft beach home?

It was an easy choice for us. Three cheers for the beach home! We loved it!!

This is a lovely home located in safe beach community that has virtually everything you need within walking distance, including the beach, of course!

Each level has a covered balcony for dining al fresco or just sitting to enjoy the cool ocean breezes.

Tennis anyone... basketball, baseball or tot playground? Visit the park located a stone's throw away or just sit on the private 3rd floor balcony as a spectator to it all!

This is a well appointed home with beautiful travertine floors and bath vanities and granite kitchen counter tops. But, best of all is the owner, Nancy. She's friendly, very responsive and timely.

We'd definitely stay again!! Beautiful memories! Thank you, Nancy.

Elizabeth & Michael

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

This house lives up to its description and was just perfect for our family'. Location was great, easy walk to town or beach and right next to the park. The interior was immaculate and felt like we were at a home (or even better, a fab hotel). Nancy, the owner, was very easy to work with and went out of her way to assist with anything -- including very detailed house instructions. I would highly recommend this home and and can't wait for our next extended trip to MB to rent again.

Our Stay in July

  • 5 of 5

We rented for the month of July from Nancy, the owner. The property is outstanding as it's truly a family home. Amenities are top notch and reflect the owners' good taste. In addition, the property is right next to a beautiful municipal park where my wife played tennis and my son practiced baseball on a daily basis. We had a couple of minor problems, but they were promptly and professionally handled by Nancy, the owner. We intend to rent this incredible property again.
