                  Welcome to your ocean view/walk Ultimate Beach Life Fantasy!

                  Manhattan beach is considered one of the most beautiful, secluded beaches in the country. This eco minded, happy community is known as the 'Crown Jewel' of all Los Angeles beach towns.

                  Manhattan beach is filled with world class athletes, who both live and play here. Although it's renowned for it's elite surf, Gold Medalists in beach and indoor volleyball, you may also enjoy paddle boarding, golfing, hiking, biking, running, tennis, sailing, fishing, yoga, or hang gliding off of the beach cliff! Access to equipment rental and lessons (boards, bikes, boats, etc.) All are just a short walk or bike ride away!

                  Whether you're here to enjoy the sun, 5 star dining, theater, concerts, comedy, night life, Surf Fest, pro or amateur sporting events, local live music, Shakespeare at the beach, or to simply indulge in relaxation, you'll find the opportunities are almost limitless!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About the owner: San Diego born and raised, a true So Cal native. Long time Manhattan Beach resident who has raised four daughters here. Lives an active lifestyle in sports, community, entertainment. Is resourceful, informative, helpful, respectful.

                  Why the Owner Chose Manhattan Beach:
                  Why Manhattan Beach? It's a magical place! Simply there just isn't a better community to give you as many activities, entertainment, pleasure or anything you desire for you or your family. Very friendly community, peaceful and safe with a very low crime rate, award winning schools, Eco friendly, cutting edge, sparkling sun filled days, glistening ocean, stunning event filled holidays, energetic yet relaxed.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Every morning I awake, usually to sparkling blue skies, ocean view, and smell of sea kelp. I head to the Strand with my dog for a walk into town for Peets Coffee, chatting with friendly neighbors along the way. I return home, hop on my bike ride to the next town, Hermosa Beach, to work as a personal trainer. I love the time I have to enjoy my fabulous town and often venture to hike, run in the sand, play volleyball, body surf or sample some of the fabulous food from MB Post, Strand House, or local's favorite 'Fonzi's' Working up a sweat on the beach often calls for a walk to neighborhood fish taco and beer at Shellback Tavern, Manhattan Brewing Co, OB's or Sharkeez while window shopping along the way at Diane's, Barbie K, LF, True Religion, Free People to name a few. Throughout the week, I enjoy local farmers market Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday. Tuesday & Sunday evening karaoke at Panchos, live music and dancing at many locations within walking distance, Comedy Club, or local playhouses. Although there is plenty to do, see, & hear locally, I occasionally make the drive into the city for more! YOUR DREAM CAN COME TRUE!
