Here in Manhattan Beach, many historic homes and buildings are torn down without fanfare to make room for new constructions…but we couldn't bear to give that same death sentence to this charismatic 1930's Spanish-style villa!
Manhattan Beach is the perfect location for this personality-packed home, which is a less than 5-minute walk to the ocean and one of the Beach’s best surf spots (we're located on a walk street so accessing the beach couldn't be easier). And it’s also perfect for those who wish to escape to a laid back place by the sea that’s still just 5 minutes from LAX—and centrally located near downtown LA, Hollywood, Long Beach, Santa Monica, Venice, and Anaheim/Disneyland, too.
Manhattan Beach is the kind of place where locals come to walk their dogs on The Strand’s walking / biking path and escape the more tourist-heavy beaches. From this rental, all of Manhattan Beach’s perks are in close walking distance—like the ocean, shops and restaurants on Manhattan Beach Blvd & Pier to the south, and shops & bars to the north.
This home is a duplex with an upper and lower unit, each available for rent separately and with their own entrance—one upstairs and one downstairs. Both sleep 4, with one California King bed in the bedroom, one bath, and one plush sofa bed in each. Other perks include a shared washer/dryer between the two units, free WiFi, and one private parking spot for each unit as well—believe me, you’ll want one in this area!
You can also rent the whole place. It’s the perfect set-up for groups who want to travel together but have a bit of time apart, too. Please inquire for details and rates.
DOWNSTAIRS HOME : OPEN STARTING March 20, 2017 @ $300 a nite. $350 a nite Summer 2017
1 car parking on property
The downstairs unit (ON THE 1ST/GROUND FLOOR) is the smaller of the two units at an intimate 500 square feet—just the right size for a couple, small family, or a traveling business professional.
My husband and I fell in love with the home’s history, and throughout our recent remodel of the downstairs unit, we took great care to maintain its colorful personality and heritage and enhanced its existing beauty with Spanish tile work, rich turquoise paint, and vintage artwork from Mexico.
Wake up and fry an egg in the sunny eat-in kitchen, using the vintage, professionally refurbished O'Keefe & Merritt cobalt blue stove. We LOVE this delightful stove, and so do our guests—in fact, we find it provides a more even heat than today’s sleek, modern models.
A turquoise back splash, custom-made self closing cabinets and dining area with exotic monkey pod wood bar top and vintage tractor seat stools give the whole kitchen the feel of a fun Mexican restaurant—a great space to spend a night in.
The bathroom in this unit includes a brand new, cast iron claw foot tub with shower. Sink into it with a glass of wine! The toilet and pedestal sink are brand new, too. But we maintained the Spanish influence with custom made tiles, a new light fixture from Mexico, and a vibrant paint color.
DESCRIPTION OF UPPER UNIT:
1 car garage parking
**UPSTAIRS UNIT AVAILABILITY: Not Avail until Mar 28 @ $450 a nite & at $500 Summer 2017.
The upstairs rental offers the entire upper floor for sprawling out—one of our guests called it a “mini Mexican mansion”—including a 500 square foot outdoor living space.This unit also is a 1 bedroom and 1 bath as the lower unit, but also has a formal dining area and den area in addition to the living room area. This unit is decorated with beautiful authentic Mexican furniture, light fixtures and artwork for our guests to enjoy.
A designer kitchen awaits as well, with stainless steel appliances, wine refrigerator, yards of counter tops, and all the utensils and cooking tools you need.
Exposed wood beams, big picture windows with views of the ocean, an expansive dining table, and a buttery soft leather couch make the living area a haven for hanging out.
There’s a sunken den, too (check out the vibrant tile work on those steps!), where you can cozy up to a crackling fire in the indoor fireplace on a cool evening. On a warm evening, step onto the lush, courtyard-style patio bursting with greenery and flowering bougainvillea and made tranquil by a trickling water feature and music on the outdoor, surround-sound speakers.
And the bedroom and en suite bath are pretty special, too. There’s a vintage dresser that’s been converted into a one-of-a-kind sink in the bathroom, and there’s a Jacuzzi tub for sinking into.
Dimmers on all the lights throughout the home create a special glow and ambiance in the evening. Add to that the warm ocean breeze blowing in through the gorgeous French windows, and you have California beach living at its best!
