About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2A1C or 1A2C)

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. 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.

Très bien

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer 5 jours dans cet appartement en famille (2 adultes + 2 enfants de 4 et 7 ans). Appartement très bien situé par rapport à l'océan (5 min à pied), et au centre ville (15 min à pied). Les enfants dormaient dans la chambre, et nous sur le canapé lit du séjour. Appartement simple, propre, équipé. Les propriétaires sont à côté, et sont prêts à aider.

J'ai adoré Manhattan Beach en général, station balnéaire très jolie, familiale, calme, (huppée quand même !). On a visité Venice et Santa Monica, et je préfère de loin loger et me balader à Manhattan Beach.

Close to the Beach

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was very clean, neat, and easy to move into. Since we were the only apartment over a garage, there was no noise from neighbors. We did hear the garage door once or twice a day. but it never bothered us. It was an easy walk to the beach, and we enjoyed walking and biking on the Strand. This South Beach area is a lovely place to vacation and visit.
