About Robert Donnelly
Hello, I live next door to this beautiful little beach house, with my two young children. I used to live in this little beach house, but out grew it's size with my family. I work from home, and I am around most of the time, to answer any questions, share information about the neighborhood, or offer beach items for your use, such as bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas. You might even find us at the beach enjoying all the sun & surf at the bottom of our walk street!
Robert Donnelly purchased this Cottage in 2007

This is truly a wonderful, updated beach cottage. Only two full blocks from the beach, the property is one of Manhattan Beach's walk streets, with expanded outdoor living to enjoy the ocean views, and breezes while soaking in the ocean views and the warm sun.

Wonderful spot to relax and refuel
We spent the week at the beach and loved loved loved the house and location. it is a straight shot to the beach and the place is well equipped with everything you might need. In fact I made a turkey dinner Christmas day with all the fixings. A wonderful place close to anything you might need and wonderful place to get away from it all, but still be close enough. There is even a nice little fire pit outside for those brisk nights by the beach. Great host and great place in MB.
Great place to stay in MB!
Great place to stay in MB. Robert is also super nice and very helpful. We all, including our pet Chihuahua had a great time. Thank you!!!
Beach life !
Great property. Location is everything at the beach ! House is simple and well equipped. Next to a busy road but you get used to that quickly. 3 min walk to the beach. You are 5 min walk to many nice restaurants in north Manhattan, (plus a good convenience store) or one lovely mile on the beach path into town/ the pier. The outside seating area with beach view is a lovely bonus, great spot for a sundowner , we actually saw Dolphins when sitting there. We really felt like locals rather than tourists... Never moved the car for 3 days .... Highly recommended, especially for small family.
Thank you for the wonderful review of my place and its surroundings. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in my beach cottage and your time in MB to feel like a local, how wonderful! I thank you again for your reservation, the kind review, and the opportunity to host you all again! Cheers!
Fantastic Manhattan Beach
We have just finished our two weeks stay in Robert ‘s Manhattan Beach cottage and want to say what a fantastic time we had. Robert and Carmen were fabulous hosts. The cottage was everything we could have wanted. It is close to the beach and the trip down the 31st walk street to the beach was amazing. We really appreciated the fact that it came with a parking space. Truth is that we only moved our car out of the space for a couple of appointments we had in LA. The location is an easy walk to downtown Manhattan Beach. We made the walk every day to get the New York Times at the local newsstand. We also made the walk home each evening along The Strand from dinner at one of the many fantastic restaurants we discovered. There is also a fantastic bakery 2 blocks up Highland that has delicious fresh baked scones. We also highly recommend Marine Street Café, which is mid-way to downtown MB. They provided great breakfasts and to go lunches we took to the beach.
All aspects of our experience were great – check-in, cable service, wi-fi. The cottage is not large but it is well laid out with a great kitchen. We also appreciated the in-unit laundry stack, which worked perfectly. We had two minor items we needed which were provided immediately. One of those items were linens for an overnight gust of ours. Since we were headed to LA for dinner we asked our hosts to drop off the linens while we were out. Was pleasantly surprised that when we returned they had made up the fold out couch so we didn’t have to do it when we got in late.
One thing we hadn’t thought about but came to appreciate was that the cottage had air conditioning. During our stay there was a monsoonal flow so the humidity was higher than normal but the central a/c allowed us to sleep very comfortably.
My daughter and I stayed in the cottage over the summer and the property was perfect. The cottage is close to the beach and the ability to walk to the pier where we could shop and grab a bite to eat was so much fun. We are still raving about Uncle Bill's Pancake House! The furnishings are nice and we loved being able to see the ocean from the property. The parking spot was awesome because street parking is a bit difficult. Overall, the location and furnishings of this property are superb and made our stay in Manhattan Beach a delight.
Mother daughters holiday
A month ago today we arrived at your beautiful cottage. Would like to take this time to thank you for such a wonderful holiday.
For me this was a holiday of a life time for myself, thank you for being so helpful.
Your cottage is beautiful, and very comfortable, I would refer anyone to rent it.
It is very very clean, near restaurants, stores and near the beach.
