About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, beds for 4, 6 max

Our beach cottage is an wonderful 1920's beach house, 2 blocks from the beach on a lovely, family-friendly walk-street located between the Manhattan and Hermosa Piers. It's 2br/1 ba fully furnished house, with front and back patios with an outdoor table for outdoor eating and BBQ. Also includes 2-car parking, AC in bedrooms, free internet, washer/dryer, 2 patios, outside shower, and a flat-screen smart TV with Apple TV including DirecTV Now for live TV, and Amazon Prime Video. (Also use your Netflix subscription easily).

With prime location just steps to the beach, playing/boarding/swimming is as easy as it gets. And, our outdoor shower will let you rinse off the sand to take a quick bike ride (we have a beach cruiser for your use) on the Strand. It's an easy stroll to both Manhattan and Hermosa piers for restaurants and fun (especially if you catch the sunset and stop to take pictures). The nearest park is Valley Park, and easy walk away.

Our cottage is Kid-friendly (one bedroom has a queen bed, and the other has a single bed with a pull-out trundle bed), but the sleeping configuration can be used easily used for 4 adults as well (and if you really need additional sleeping space we have a comfortable queen sized blow up mattress for the living room). Toys and games are available and included for your family's use. A charming, fully equipped kitchen with a table for four, has all the kitchen utensils/equipment you'd need to use for making a pancake breakfast to a movie-night cooking in (although you're on vacation - restaurants are within walking or delivery distance!).

We have a front loading washer/dryer for your use (shake out all the sand first please!), linens and towels, as well as beach accessories (beach towels, chairs, etc.).

When we aren’t there at home we’re usually in Lake Arrowhead, or on a new travel adventure (which always makes us appreciate the beach and our fun home at the beach even more!). We’d love to share it with you, and allow you to enjoy it as much as we do!

We are 15 minutes south of LAX Airport; 30 minutes north of Palos Verdes, Terrenea Resort and Golf Courses; 30 minutes to Downtown LA and Theaters, Staples Center, Museums, Disney Concert Hall; and about 45 minutes to Disneyland, Universal Studios, Knotts Berry Farm and 1.5 hour or so to Magic Mountain

Loved our stay. Beautiful, charming, sublime place

  • 5 of 5

Everything was lovely and easy. The location is gorgeous, so quiet and yet so close to the beach. (Best beach in LA). The front area is totally pedestrianised (car access by rear), feels like a village. We (four of us) will be back here if we can. Jeannie communicated well throughout (we didn’t meet, but didn’t need to).

A Great “home away from home,” yet we still felt like we were on vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The homeowner was extremely accommodating. The house was charming, clean, and perfectly situated in town. Our nine year old daughter quickly made friends with the neighborhood kids. The walking street made us feel very safe and the neighborhood was extremely quiet and peaceful. We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay here and would recommend this place for sure! The private parking spot was very very helpful too! Enjoy!

Perfect Hermosa Manhattan location!

  • 4 of 5

Was an easy walk to and fro the beach. Kids didn’t even complain. Boccatos grocery nearby was perfect for restocking. Clean small beach bungalow on quiet walk street. Perfect for our family of 4 with 2 small kids.

A great beach house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation in this house, everything was perfect for us. We particularly appreciated the off-road parking, the fully stocked kitchen, the comfortable beds and the beach cruiser. The location was great, being on a quiet, car-less street and an easy walk to the beach and the park. Our hostess was helpful and communicative.
