About the property



Perched high atop and at the end of a dead-end street, this light-flooded 2 -level 2 bedroom , 1½ bath home is UNIQUE to Manhattan Beach due to its one-of-a kind location, vistas, privacy, proximity to everything, 5-star amenities and hip, boutique hotel feel.

2 short blocks to the sand, 4 even shorter blocks to gorgeous downtown, and adjacent to beautiful tennis and basketball courts, our home is uniquely situated perched above a beautiful park and lush greenery 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 home is truly a rare combination of luxury, location, privacy, 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.

Views from every room, the gorgeous kitchen is looks out onto the "zen deck." Drink, lounge, and dine al fresco in this beautiful outdoor living space furnished with a large dining table, loungey sectional, tranquil Buddha fountain, and white cabana-like curtains that create a feeling of being on the roof of a hip boutique hotel.

Prepare meals in our beautiful new kitchen with white quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, limestone tile and floors. Or throw some shrimp or steaks on the gas bbq. The bright living/dining room is furnished with a luxurious, white down-filled sectional that seats aplenty and an all white Saarinen-esque dining table with white Eames chairs - all atop limestone floors and opens to the Zen Deck.

Spacious master suite has gorgeous new white washed oak floors, a luxurious new cal-king memory foam bed, and high thread-count sheets. Master bath has granite counter tops, limestone floors, dual sinks, walk-in shower with rain showerhead, and separate bathtub also with a shower (yes, two showers!)

2nd bedroom is on the lower level offering privacy and is also light and bright, furnished with Pottery Barn twin bunk beds, bedding and decor, beautiful new white oak floors with spectacular park views.

We are literally next door to 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!

Fantastic Manhattan Beach Experience

  • 5 of 5

Great, family friendly property! I stayed at Nancy's property with my husband and 5 year old son and we had a truly fantastic time. The property is centrally located in the heart of Manhattan Beach and in walking distance to everything in town. There is a huge park and jogging trail right behind the apartment and that was a huge hit for my family. The apartment itself is lovely and the patio is so relaxing and private! Nancy is a great host and I would highly recommend her place and would personally stay there again if when we return to the area.

Awesome property and location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific property-updated and bright with all the needed tech access, nice kitchen, and beauuuutiful patio deck. Easy walking distance to the beach, shops, and great restaurants and accessible to LA's freeways to get to any site. Our hostess, Nancy, was awesome-very accommodating! Perfect stay for my wife, teenage son and I. We'd come back in a heartbeat.

A phenomenal combo of So Cal Chic and Manhattan Beach cool with great access to beach and downtown

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us and our stay in September of 2015. My wife and I have two kids, 10 and 7 yrs old, and we wanted to come into Manhattan Beach and experience this amazing beach city like a local would. I really loved the fact the home was situated in a residential setting, on a quiet street, and once you took a few steps out of the house the ocean was in sight. The location is amazing, since you can walk to what I think is the best beach area in MB. If you want to take a jog on the Strand, or roll into downtown Manhattan Beach and all the great restaurants and shops, it's a very short walk. And if you have kids, the adjacent park makes the trip even more special. The park has full-court lighted basketball courts, with a lower rim for younger kids, multiple tennis courts, a baseball diamond and playground. Nancy is absolutely the ideal host. From the moment you book your stay she goes out of her way to make your visit special, memorable and unforgettable. That is a huge deal, especially if you don't know much about the area and Nancy can help you with all the top places to visit and stay, which she even compiles in a comprehensive binder that will help lay out great itineraries for you. Your comfort and enjoyment truly matters to her. Her sports closet is filled with what you need for a day of fun when you hit the beach or tennis court, and you'll have everything you need inside the house, with laundry on the lower level, a great kids bedroom with toys, and the newly remodeled modern kitchen allows you to make some meals at the house, and not always eat out. The house is meticulously decorated yet all the furniture and beds were exceptionally comfortable. I'm an information junkie- and I like the fact she had three televisions in the home and numerous books, magazines and DVDs. The outdoor deck is ideal for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning and a glass of wine at night. Those Manhattan Beach ocean breezes never, ever get old! Manhattan Beach is a very special beach town, and we found this place to perfectly suit our needs and make us feel like upscale locals for the week, being catered to by an exceptionally gracious host.

An elegant home for a great beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We feel very fortunate to have found this lovely home to live in while visiting our daughter in Manhattan Beach. The location in the sand section, which is a short walk to the beach and to all the great Manhattan Beach shops and restaurants, is fabulous. The house is just as it looks in the photos with beautiful, new contemporary furnishings and rooms. The most important room for us was the great outdoor terrace with comfortable seating, a dining table, and water fountain; we spent almost all our time there when we were home or in front of the gas fireplace in the living room. Nancy is a terrific host and answered any questions immediately. The downstairs bedroom has bunk beds which was kind of a hoot for my son and his fiance who visited, but with such a great location and house, they were never in their room. This is a perfect vacation home for discerning travelers.

Zen retreat

  • 5 of 5

This Manhattan Beach property was a gem to find! It is located in a perfect area off Highland, a few scenic blocks from the beach, and about a 10-minute walk to shops, restaurants and yoga studio near MB Boulevard. Plenty of additional shopping and restaurants on nearby Sepulveda. Property is beautifully decorated, clean, fresh and well appointed, not to mention the relaxing outdoor patio. Our party of 5 felt quite at home and immediately settled into this sweet retreat!

The owner was wonderful to work with - professional, sincere, and genuinely cared about guests having a positive experience. Generously offered beach equipment and toys for the big and little kids. In return, guests should treat it as if it where their own home. I highly recommend this property, and hope to return.

Fantastic stay close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Manhattan Beach. Nancy was the perfect landlord and had a beautiful property. We were able to walk to all bars and restaurants. Perfect location to everything you need. Only 2-3 blocks to the beach.

Only 10-15 minutes to LAX. I would highly recommend Nancy and her property. You will not be dissappointed!

Go to Shellback and have a cold beer on the beach. Eat at all the local places. They are all great!
