The location is unbeatable. This area of the Strand (our boardwalk) is very private, as the homes are raised above passerby's allowing for privacy even on the deck and jacuzzi tub. Less foot-traffic than the central Manhattan Beach area near the pier, though you can use our bicycles to get to that busier part of town in just minutes. Also within easy walking distance (a couple blocks) are many excellent restaurants, charming breakfast eateries, yoga studios, juice bars and gastro-pubs, as well as some boutiques for shopping, massage, etc. For those thinking of trying their hand on a surfboard, this is the spot-- known as one of LA county's best surfing waves. It's a treat just to watch the surfers and dolphins swimming by in the morning. This really is the best of both worlds... laid back beach living with the all the comforts of Manhattan Beach!

3 bedrooms/2 full bath (1 King and 2 Queen Beds-- two beds overlook the ocean) sleeps 6.

2 complimentary bicycles included with rental

50 inch Plasma TV with DVD, Blue Ray, HD cable and the ultimate surround sound speakers.

High Speed Internet Access.

Patio Space: one with hot tub

Fully stocked kitchen with beautiful appliances (coffee maker, blender, toaster oven, microwave, spice rack, and dishwasher).

Coin operated washer & dryer available.

We have a high quality Weber Barbecue, for those who love to barbecue

Steps to Manhattan Beach's North End, with shopping, dining, and night life.

We are baby-friendly! Crib and high chair available upon request.

Just please let us know before your arrival...

Why Sandra chose El Porto

We have always loved Manhattan Beach! It is one of the best kept secrets in Los Angeles. So close to everything yet with such a unique beach culture that is so different from the rest of Los Angeles. We have traveled around the world and we think this is the best place on earth!

                                                                Great location with a nice deck & jacuzzi with beautiful views of the ocean.

                                                                Had a great time in El Porto seeing family and friends. Great location, and a loved the patio view and jacuzzi. The house was cute, but needs some TLC. The floors were dirty(made your bare feet black walking on them) when we arrived. There was missing grout in the tile, especially the upstairs bathroom. The outside shower didn’t work, had to use the hose. The top step as you come up from the Strand, by the patio, is about to cave in. And, no baby oil and cotton balls for the tar, had to use WD40 from under the kitchen sink. Lastly, no hex wrench to lower the seat on the orange cruiser bike. Those things considered, great trip overall

                                                                clean and great location

                                                                this place is clean and a great location to sit and watch the surfers in the morning! I would advise though if you have a difficulty walking up stairs, this house has many. Other than that, it was a great spot. PS, bring a compact car, we got a large Yukon XL backed in but never moved it until it was time to leave as we would have never got it back in the same spit without the help of a delivery driver that day!

                                                                Hi Kathleen, I am so glad you & your family enjoyed the home.

                                                                We definitely advise everyone on their vehicle, thanks for the tip!

                                                                Excellent place for a Rose Bowl trip

                                                                John M.Roswell, GA

                                                                Great location and food nearby. The owners were very responsive when we had questions. Would definitely rent again if in the area.

                                                                Fabulous sunset watching from jacuzzi

                                                                Three double beds, so fitting 6 you need to be good friends or lovers. Kitchen is basic, only room for one chef. Perfect for young party folks.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thanks for the feedback Joan, however for guests I want to confirm there is 1 king sized bed and 2 queens. This is DEFINITELY not for party folks as it isn't appropriate for this home or the neighborhood. When my family stays there, we have 3 in the kitchen preparing dinner, so I am also confused here. Any guests with questions, please feel free to reach out to me. Thank you!

                                                                Tremendous location, awesome views!!
