Property description


Availability: June through September 15, or on request
Manhattan Beach now requires that "short-term rentals" be 30 days. We will rent for 21 days or longer and adjust the monthly rate accordingly. Sorry for the inconvenience.
PROPERTY LOCATION near Roseecrans and Pine Avenue.
A very comfortable family home, great for kids of all ages. Pool and jacuzzi are now solar heated, 2011. Backyard is great for lounging, swimming, BBQs, and reading, a great entertaining spot. Exterior newly painted, interiors are clean, bright, and 'tropical'. Great for entertaining, the downstairs kitchen is fully equipped. Downstairs cozy living room with fireplace seats 8-10, full dining room seats 8+. Upstairs large family room, 20'X 20', with ping pong table, TV entertainment center, and attached study. Lots of light, bright and cheery. The dining and living room open to the back yard and view the 8 foot deep swimming pool with attached jacuzzi. Newly replastered, this dark bottom pool is chlorine free. You could actually drink the water. Three bedrooms upstairs. Two are on the west side looking over the backyard and towards the ocean and beautiful sunsets with queen beds. The master bedroom has a beautiful king bed, with blackout drapery and private bath. You can sleep till noon! Bath has a double-sink counter, soaking tub, large shower, and separate toilet space with door. Glass wall bricks allow for maximum light at all times. The upstairs bathroom was completely remodeled in 12/2013 with beautiful porcelain tile, double sinks, and a great tub/shower. Shower head is 7 feet, with a double handle setting for temperature and water flow.
Downstairs den/bedroom has a double bed off the kitchen area. The downstairs guest bath is a half bath.

Renters are allowed to use four bicycles. Be sure to use lock because of bike theft. Walk to the beach down the central jogging path through the west part of town. We are within one hour of most attractions in Los Angeles, but the neighborhood is beach casual with LOTS of fantastic restaurants to choose from. The beach 'Strand' (an eight foot wide cement path) allows walkers and bicyclists or skaters the opportunity to enjoy the beach without the sand, which runs from the base of Palos Verdes to Santa Monica. Beach volleyball is a favorite, even professional tournaments, and fireworks on July 4th.

Come and visit this great vacation spot! Manhattan Beach has everything for a family vacation.

You can't go wrong with this lovely home, priced right.

Before reading about our wonderful home, please be advised that the City of Manhattan Beach has ruled that residents may no longer have short-term rentals. We may only accept rentals of 21 or more days, or one month. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Manhattan Beach is a fun, athletic town, filled with family activities, the beach, restaurants, parks, and easy access to a multitude of theme parks, Catalina Island, and entertainment venues. Our favorite activity is biking along the Strand, a 10 foot wide cement pathway that runs 22 miles from Santa Monica to Palos Verdes. We usually ride from MB north to Marina del Rey or south to Redondo Beach, and often stop for breakfast along the way. Some favorite restaurants are Scotty's, The Good Stuff, Hennessey's, and Playa in Hermosa Beach. Redondo pier is a mecca for bird watching, including pelicans, seagulls, a heron or two, and lots of local fisherman. The house has 4 bikes which are available, and bike rental is available at Hermosa Cyclery, in the alley off Hermosa pier. Another highlight is the Veteran's Parkway that runs north-south through the west side of town. Once a rail line, it now is a great walking or jogging trail. Walking the Parkway to downtown MB takes about 15 minutes. Only about 5 minutes walk east is the Manhattan Beach Mall, filled with your favorite shops and great restaurants. Across Rosecrans and Sepulveda is also the El Segundo Plaza.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: A retired husband and wife who enjoy traveling. We are both previous educators, husband was a principal with LAUSD, and we enjoy biking, swimming, movies, reading, and life.

Why the Owner Chose Sand Section, Manhattan Beach, CA, USA:
Very few rental properties in Manhattan Beach have a pool. With a non-chlorine treatment, it is safe for even the youngest swimmers. We came here to enjoy the many family activities that are planned throughout the year, to participate in beach and Strand activities such as volleyball tournaments, and live in a safe community with great schools.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Solar heated pool and Jacuzzi make this home enjoyable inside or out. Restful backyard is great for lounging, entertaining, and reading. The floor plan is comfortable and everyone can find a place for themselves to enjoy.
