Overview

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.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

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.

No frills, just crash

  • 4 of 5

This place is exactly as pictured. If you are looking forward to a place to crash and spend some time in the cool little town of Manhattan Beach this is it. It is as simplistic as you get these days. No updates, but it has hot and cold water, a place to shower, cook if you want, and a place to rest your head. I was jn town on business and just needed a place to keep my luggage and sleep. The location is awesome. 2 min walk to beach and 5 min walk to shops/testaaunts. Owner communicates well and makes the place simple to use.

Loved every single minute in Manhattan Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the 2nd time at Thomas' appartement. Just like last year we enjoyed being so close to the beach (just a 2minute walk) with awesome sunsets. We walked, ran and biked around. Marina del Rey, Venice, Santa Monica, the bikepath is a must when in MB.

The appartement is basic and has all the necessities to cook. You can do your laundry which I liked so we didn't have to do that coming home.

We will certainly return to Manhattan Beach and stay here again. Thomas is very kind and has tons off tips what to do or where to go.

Fantastic stay. Very friendly and hospitable owners.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time here. It's a great location. Very easy walking distance to great food and fun at the MHB pier. It's also very easy driving to some of the local theme parks and other attractions, always less than an hour drive, depending on traffic.

Thomas and his wife were very cordial and friendly, offering up extra fans and a boogie board for our son to use. The fans wouldn't normally be required, but the week we stayed was record breaking heat!

We would definitely stay here again. Thank you!

Perfect location, brilliant apartment. Must stay here!

  • 4 of 5

We will definitely return to Thomas' house. Perfect location. Absolutely everything you could need in a vacation apartment. The beds were really comfortable. Hot shower and clean bathroom. With windows on all sides of the house there was a cool breeze blowing through and we were never too hot. Good wifi. We never used the TV as we spent so much time walking around the town or on the beach! Such a beautiful place. Parking no problem at all. All communication with a Thomas was quick and when we had a hot water problem it was solved within 15 mins of us reporting it. Never visited the garden as it didn't look as enticing as the photos. With a lick of paint, a new carpet and improvements to the garden I'd give this 5*****. Thank you Thomas!
