Wife's 70th birthday retreat.
Can't say enough about this lovely home on the beach. My wife and I enjoyed a very relaxing week celebrating her 70th birthday.
We were not the only admirers, many people walking the "Strand" would stop to admire. Sadly, we had to inform them that we were only renting. This place is truly unique! JR and his wife ( the owners) could not have been more helpful. We plan to return next year.
Thanks Robert. Glad you guys enjoyed it! Come back anytime. Would love to host you again!!
It doesn't get better than this.
One of those properties you don't want to tell people about because it'll only get harder to book, but wow.... This is a perfect house in a perfect location with a perfect host. We rode bikes, surfed, watched sunsets and walked to the amazing restaurants... and we can't wait to go back.
We had a fantastic vacation at the the Glass House (a family of six). The house is excellent, the beach location incredible and the hosts fantastic. I’m not sure we could have asked for more. The house and location are as great as the images and the description portrays. We were not disappointed. The hosts were extremely helpful in answering our many questions around what to do, where to go (for food, surfing lessons, fishing equipment etc etc). The house has loads of stuff to keep the kids amused (loads of toys in the loft for the little one) and plenty of beach equipment (boards, toys, chairs, umbrella etc) and plenty of bikes. We would thoroughly recommend Manhattan beach as an area and the Glass House in particular. We will definitely be back.
Breathtaking views, relaxed vibe, gorgeous beach home!
A 10!! Perfect location, home & views to take in the Manhattan Beach area and all it has to offer. Walking distance to anything you need. Home is beautifully and comfortably supplied and decorated. Hosts/owners could not be more gracious, kind & helpful. Will definitely be a repeat customer! Thank you for an amazing stay!
You better be a repeat customer!!! We’ll see you guys soon. Thanks for the kind words.
Stunning house, best location!
We enjoyed 9 perfect days at this wonderful house. Jaw-dropping view, easy walking distance to everything Manhattan Beach has to offer. Bikes available to explore down to Hermosa and Redondo beaches. JR and Susan are the consummate beach hosts..laid back, friendly, warm. We will be back!
About JR Johnson
Our family has lived in Manhattan Beach for multiple generations and love this little beach community. This is a special place and we love sharing our hometown with visitors. We are a family with 2 young daughters, and we live adjacent to this listing.
JR Johnson purchased this House in 2017
Why JR Johnson chose Sand Section
The location can't be beat. It checks all the boxes: - on the strand - on a walk street - south of pier (most desirable section of Manhattan Beach) - close walk to downtown Manhattan Beach
What makes this House unique
We travel a lot and have stayed at a lot of VRBO rentals. We we like to think we've set our house up to be a really special experience. We want our guests to have a true Manhattan Beach experience like: - a surf or paddle in the morning - watch the kids boogie boarding and playing in the sand - bike rides to Hermosa or Redondo - walk to the aquarium and touch tanks at the end of the pier - stroll into town for dinner or drinks - sit on patio and do nothing but watch the sunset - nap
