About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Our Home has 2 Bedroom Suites, 2 1/2 Baths, Ocean Views and is only 2 short blocks to the Beach and Downtown Manhattan. Conveniently located close to LAX ( 15 minutes ) or the 405 Freeway ( 7 minutes ). You can get to the Getty Museum in 25 minutes, Downtown Los Angeles in 25 minutes or Disneyland in 45 minutes.

For the daily bike rider or jogger, we are 2 blocks to the Manhattan Strand and 3 blocks to the Manhattan Green Belt, which offers a short 1 mile path or long 8 mile course. One can take a leisurely stroll viewing the variety of upscale beach homes which are along the famous Strand Walkway.

Interior Home Description as follows:

The top level of the home is the The Prince Jewel - it has an incredible 180 degree Ocean View Deck that spans across the entire house with views from Malibu to Palos Verdes, taking in the Island of Catalina, Manhattan Beach Pier, Sunsets to Die for, and often dolphins playing in the surf line. We just replaced the old and tired recliners and bought brand new ones! We have refreshed lots of tired items through-out the house. New dish towels, cutting boards, utensils and more....

Always trying to keep the house fresh and comfortable for all our guests.

This deck is separated by full length glass ' Nana Door Windows' that completely open and store into a pocket bring the outside into the home. On inclimate days the window doors are tinted and insulated to allow full ocean viewing in the comfort of the living room. The deck has beach lounge chairs, a cozy table for 3 and a Gas Bar-B-Que for convenient outdoor cooking.

The kitchen is fully stocked with all appliances, a separate ice-maker and plenty of dish and glassware, pots, pans and utensils. Refrigerator has several condiments and pantry has plenty of spices, all for your use.

The living room has a remote controlled gas log Fireplace, a 42' HD TV with direct TV and HBO and a DVR. A dining area with a buffet, A breakfast counter with 3 Bar Stools, A Chef Quality Large Open Kitchen with Thermador Gas stove and oven. Built-ins, Dishwasher, GE Profile Double Door Refrigerator, and a convenient 24 hour Ice Maker. A work space/desk with Wifi.

The ground level is the garage (parking for 2 cars included) with entry into the home. There is also another additional parking space in front of the garage, which gives you 3 parking spaces at the beach! The laundry room equipped with front load washer and dryer is located here.

The 2nd level has the Master Bedroom Suite with a full walk in closet, a his and hers Bathroom Vanity, a King size Shower with a Rain Shower. This bedroom is furnished with a California King TEMPERPEDIC Size Bed, a remote controlled gas log Fireplace, a remote controlled 42' flat screen TV with direct TV, HBO and DVR. We just put in fresh brand new carpet in both bedrooms, fresh new sheets and Ralph Lauren pillows and towels.

Just down the hall is the Junior Suite, furnished with a Brand New Queen Size Bed, a cozy window bench, a Full Bathroom with Tub and Shower, and it's own 19' flat screen. Current TV has direct TV and HBO. The room has a nice closet and 4 drawer dresser (very cute).

About Lorie O'Connor

We are both real estate Brokers. My wife and I are using our personal home as a vacation rental so that we may travel. We are both native Californians, with 4 children. We love to live by the ocean and we are certain if you love the ocean, you will enjoy a visit to the town of Manhattan Beach. We have been residents of our community for over 40 years, I am, in reality, a beachy guy with a vintage (1960) Greg Knoll surfboard and a very casual outlook on life. My Wife is Italian, a great cook and an excellent realtor. We are intimately aware of all things in our home town and we can guide you to the best restaurants, best bargains and any theme park or activity California has to offer (we raised our children here). We will insure your comfort in our casual, beachy home. Sincerely, Dwight and Lorie

Lorie O'Connor purchased this house in 2004

Why Lorie O'Connor chose Sand Section

This property has one of the best views in town. Really! Some people says it better than the strand because its up high and away from people walking by.

You can see from Palos Verdes to Malibu on a clear day. Plus you can see both Hermosa and Manhattan Piers.

What makes this house unique

Our home is one and a half blocks to the beach, a short walk to downtown restaurants, bars or grills with many choices of cuisines to suit your taste or budget, from up scale to causal coffee shop dining. For active outdoor people the Strand or board walk is also very close, which has bike riding, jogging or just plain walking. Beach activities are available on one of the largest, cleanest, sandy beaches in California, a delight for swimming, surfing and just plain resting and reading your favorite book.

View and Location Couldn't Be Better

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed here two years in a row and couldn't have been more satisfied with our stay. The management provides excellent service and quick response, the house is very comfortable and well appointed, especially the kitchen, all the beach toys that are needed are provided, and the location couldn't be better whether to enjoy the sand and water, to eating locally and shopping in town. (We didn't even find it necessary to rent a car since the location is so close to everything needed.) The LR/DR/Kitchen are open and airy and the spectacular view provides a perfect backdrop for dinner and drinks with family and friends. Hope to go back next year.

Fabulous in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely spectacular unobstructed view of the ocean! We have spent the last 7 Julys in MB and have rented this unit the last 3 years because it is by far the best! We like to cook and the fully stocked huge kitchen allows us to do that. We also like to entertain and the dishware, linens and barware is all top shelf! Owners are accommodating and easy to work with. Bedrooms and showers are perfect, and the house is well-maintained. Space for 3 cars to park, plus everything you need for the beach, as well as 2 bikes. We've already reserved July next year!

A Lovely Aerie

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and found the home to have all the comforts of our own home. The kitchen is awesome and furnished for the most experienced cooks, and its setting on the top floor with a panoramic view of the ocean makes it even more delightful. The hosts anticipated every need a guest might have, and we appreciated the ease with which we were able to find things because they were marked diligently by the owners.The location is wonderful and within walking distance to restaurants, shops and the beach. It is a very hospitable place!
