Property description

It may say STUDIO, but it's so much more....

Welcome to The Surf Room! Come and live like a local in our coastal inspired guest apartment, in the highly desired Sand Section just steps from the famous white sand of Manhattan Beach, California. This large 700 square foot studio apartment is located on the lowest floor of our home, with a private entrance, parking and everything that you need to experience beach life at it's best. It's walking distance to the Pier and the downtown area, the heart of the city, which is filled with casual to fine dining restaurants, and boutique shops and retailers.

This home is newly built and completed in May, 2015. It is conveniently located on one of Manhattan Beach's famed walkstreets, six houses from the sand and bike path in the desirable south end.

The Surf Room is our large family beach-oriented studio apartment. It has plenty of room for relaxing, as well as ample storage (hooks for hanging beach paraphernalia, towels and beach bags, cubbies for storage). It has a separate bathroom area with a walk in shower, a bar area for morning coffee and/or afternoon drinks and snacks, lots of seating for just hanging out. Our family enjoys it, and we'd love to share it with you.

Upon request, it can accommodate two adults and two children.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We have lived in Manhattan Beach for 38 years and raised our four children here. In May 2015, we completed the construction of our dream home. With a large and growing family of beach lovers, it's the perfect house. We live in the upper part of the house and are available to answer questions or offer suggestions. We have furnished the apartment in a comfortable beach oriented decor. We will also supply our visitors with everything needed for the perfect vacation at the beach. Our unit is ideal to experience beach life at it's best. We look forward to having you come and visit us.

Why the Owner Chose Sand Section, Manhattan Beach, CA, USA:
We have moved three times within Manhattan Beach since arriving here in 1977, finally getting to where we wanted to be, just steps from the beach and the Pacific ocean. We built this house from the ground up, incorporating everything that we ever wanted in a beach home. Our property is located in the highly desired south end of the Sand Section. Everything is within walking distance.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Our rental may say "Studio", but it's much much more. We built it for our own four children and their families to use when they visit (as they all live away now), to have place to put their stuff, shower, and relax after a day in the sun and sand with their children. In other words, their own private space to relax and enjoy. The unit includes a large sitting area, bar with refrigerator and microwave, large walk-in shower, lots of storage, Queen-size bed. Unlike most studios, you will sleep in a regular bed and still have a large sitting area to eat and relax in. You will also have access to a patio just outside the door overlooking the beach to sit and sip a glass of wine! Also, parking right outside the door for one car!!!
