                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1961

                  About the owner: Hello! My name is Darwin Pagett. I lived in this beach cottage during my early childhood. Our family relocated to Hawaii and upon graduating High School I returned to the South Bay and met my beautiful wife Sonia. My wife spent all her summers hanging out with friends at Manhattan Beach Pier. We LOVE Manhattan Beach! It has always been our home away from home. I love to surf, and she loves to relax and sunbathe. We have been happily married for 27 years. We have 4 amazing children. We now reside (just minutes from the cottage) and are so happy to share our experience at the cottage with others.

                  Why the Owner Chose Manhattan Beach:
                  The Westwinds Cottage is a place full of special memories. It is a 102 year old (originally a carriage house) for passing travelers who wished to rest themselves and their horses on their journey. Originally owned by Darwin's Aunt, Anne Kennedy, this property has been passed down to the Pagett family. Now we enjoy the same leisure and decided to share our experience with others. Also, it offers a location which is ideal to those seeking leisure time. Not only is it a short and pleasant walk to the seashore (0.3 miles to the pier) it also offers access to many local restaurants that myself and my family have frequented for all of our lives. We chose not to sell this property because it holds a very dear place in our hearts and I know it will have the same affect on all who choose to vacation there. We always appreciate and listen to our guests input...Starting November 2014 we are building a new addition to the cottage and am so excited to finally announce that we are adding a deck along side our dining room with a sliding glass door for easy access and for all you who love to barbecue. I will post photos in December when it is finished.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  This quaint, cozy, newly remodeled cottage is decorated with a modern, relaxed beach decor, and will provide comfort and rest during your stay.
