Manhattan Beach cottage description

Our 1908 cottage is completely remodeled and decorated from top to bottom combining old beach charm with all the modern conveniences. Located just a few short blocks to the Ocean and downtown. Park your car when you arrive and walk to everything.
Stroll into town and enjoy our amazing restaurants, bars, spas, and unique shops. Or, walk a few short blocks to the beach and surf, swim, play volleyball, sunbath, boogie board, make sand castles, jog, or just relax!
Back at the cottage you'll find a warm and welcoming home away from home. The living room has views, a 55' HD Flatscreen TV, and an IPOD docking station. The dinning area accommodates 6-8 people and there is a full kitchen with all the appliances and cooking equipment needed to create gourmet meals. Or, Enjoy the large backyard and barbecue and dine outside.
All 3 bedrooms have new and luxurious bedding. The very spacious Master Bedroom has a California King bed, HD Flatscreen TV, electric fireplace and a sitting room with a panoramic view. (You may have trouble getting up and out in the morning- really!) The 2nd Bedroom has Twin Beds, HD Flatscreen TV, and a large window overlooking the backyard. The 3rd bedroom has a Queen Bed. There are 2 NEW bathrooms and a new washer/dryer room.
In the yard, there is a small storage house that is equipped with beach chairs, boogie boards, coolers, umbrella, and sand toys.
