Ultimate Beach Lifestyle - Steps to Beach, Close to Downtown

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Come enjoy the very best of Southern California beach has to offer.


This one bedroom/one bath detached duplex (upper unit) is located in the BEST area of Manhattan Beach (South of Manhattan Beach pier, better known as 'South Sand'). The houses in South Sand are, mostly, owned and lived in by local families. You truly get the feel of 'local living' in this area.

South Sand area is NOT like the El Porto area or the North Manhattan Beach area. There are reasons why vacation rentals are cheaper in El Porto and North Manhattan Beach.

The unit is just steps to the beach. There are miles of jogging and biking trail that run along the beach. You can easily take a leisurely bike ride along the beach, or take a lovely sunset ocean front stroll to downtown Manhattan Beach restaurants and shopping.

We are about (walking): 3 minutes to the beach, 7 minutes to Downtown Manhattan Beach and Pier, 10 minutes to Hermosa Beach Downtown and Pier.

When you are back from your 'day in the sun', you can relax in this clean, comfortable, and well maintained unit with amenities provided for your comfort and convenience. Enjoy a good movie on flatscreen LCD TV with a DVD/CD Player Home Entertainment system. There is a limited movie collection available in the unit (feel free to bring your favorite DVD movies that you never got a chance to watch!).

Ready to rest? Enjoy a queen size bed with a memory foam mattress in the main bedroom (sleeps 2 adults). There is a full size convertible bed in the living room (sleeps 2 children or 1 adult). Linens are provided.

The unit is equipped with full kitchen: full size refrigerator/freezer, 4 burner stove, microwave, toaster, full size oven, coffee maker (we want to make sure you start your day right :), dishwasher (yes, this is a VERY good thing to have!), in unit washer/dryer (so you can pack light with your clothing requirement for your stay)-laundry detergent provided. Silverware, dishes, & cooking utensils for making simple meals are provided.

Optional: housekeeping service available for additional fee.

Southern California world renowned attractions are within easy driving distance: Disneyland, Hollywood, Universal Studio, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica/Malibu beaches, etc.

We believe in '3Cs' for your stay:

- Cleanliness: unit is well maintained and well cleaned

- Comfort: basic amenities & appliances are available

- Convenience: steps to the beach and walk to Manhattan Beach downtown!

In order to maintain the quality and safety of our guests and the unit, we require NO SMOKING, NO PET, NO PARTIES, and NO DRUGS.

Great location within walking distance of great restaurants and the beach.

  • 4 of 5

Although the property is a little dated, the sleeping accommodations and location were good. Thomas is an excellent host!

Halfway to Paradise

  • 4 of 5

The condo is located above the garage off the alley with nice privacy. It was basic in appearance but very clean and served our purposes well as we generally did not hang out there except to sleep and have breakfast.


The location halfway between both piers (Manhattan & Hermosa) and only a three block walk to the beach was superb.

The unit was conveniently equipped with a full kitchen, stacked washer & dryer, ironing board and hairdryer.

Good internet connections

Free of f-street parking available


The one bathroom is located in the bedroom so an extra person sleeping on the futon in the living room has to go through the bedroom. This is a little awkward. Best suited for a single or couple occupancy

Be aware there are stairs to carry your luggage up to front door.

Lots of noisy daytime construction going on in the area. A house was fully demolishd during our stay. Normally, we would have been gone most of the day and it wouldn't have bothered us but quite annoying if you have to stay in the condo to work. Thomas graciously suggested the use of the library down the street but I wanted the convenience of my home.

Overall, we were very happy with our stay.

Simple but has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

It's a very simple place but it's a close walking distance to the beach and to downtown Manhattan Beach. We also walked to Hermosa beach (~25mins). Beds are comfortable and the kitchen has most needed things; everything is true to description. It's pretty easy to find parking on the street. The only issue we had is it was difficult to open the lock box, but we figured it out. So if you look for an affordable stay and not a far distance - this is a perfect spot!

Awesome time!

  • 5 of 5

This property is in an awesome location, a short walk to the main downtown manhattan beach and an even shorter walk to the beach. And it is a gorgeous, wide sandy beach. Such a great location in a beautiful town. We even were greeted with a bottle of wine upon our arrival, s very nice touch.

Perfect location & cute little apartment!

We loved our stay! The neighborhood is quiet at night and is an easy walk to the beach & Manhattan beach Blvd. Will be staying here the next time we visit LA!

Great location and owner!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location of this unit! Less than 5 minute walk to the beach, and about a 10 minute walk to downtown Manhattan Beach. The unit was very clean and quite large for a one bedroom for the area. Unit was also very quiet with no one under the apartment (the apartment sits above a garage). Beds were pretty comfy- even the futon! We didn't have guests sleeping on it, but I did nap on it once and it was nice. The ocean breeze is incredible so be sure to open up the windows! The soaps were all watered down which I thought was odd. No designated parking and street parking can be hard to find and tricky- they will ticket very quickly if it's a street sweeping day! The amenities (bath, kitchen, appliances) were bare bones but usable, no complaints but not fancy by any means. The owner is so nice! I accidentally locked the keys in the house and he was very helpful and gave us a quick response. Love the location for the great price- will definitely be back if we come out this way again!
