There's no better place to hang out than charming, unforgettable Manhattan Beach. Outdoor life is at its finest: Restaurant, Bars, and the Ocean right out the door and a short walk. But if you want to venture beyond our town you might ride bikes along the ocean on our famous Strand, or drive to neighboring towns of Hermosa and Redondo Beach to the South, or Venice and Santa Monica, to the North. We are also conveniently located 20-30 minutes from downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, and Pasadena where you can catch a Lakers or Kings' game at the Staples Center or a concert at the Nokia Center or a Dodgers game at the Dodgers Stadium. Sightseeing and museum going is endless: Getty Museum, MOMA, LACMA etc. We're 45 minutes to and hour away from Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Universal Studios, & Magic Mountain. Endless possibilities.

Fabulous restored cottage and location

  • 5 of 5

We brought our family to Manhattan Beach for Spring Break. We wanted a beach location with access to downtown LA and surrounding area. We were fortunate to find this wonderful property, a short walk from the beach (including miles of biking and walking paths). It was perfect for our family vacation.

There is a large master bedroom upstairs along with a room with twin beds. There is another bedroom downstairs which could accommodate another couple or child. The property was fully stocked, very comfortable and in excellent condition. We had access to a garage which made parking after our day trips very easy.

We enjoyed getting up in the mornings, taking a walk on the beach and being able to pick up coffee, bagels and/or breakfast on the way back. There was also easy access to restaurants for dinner and many other food options, including a grocery store right down the beach.

Everything we needed was at the property - a guide book for visitors, games, extra towels/linens, etc. The owners were there to greet us and walk through any questions we had. They also checked in on us to ensure everything was going ok. They were wonderful hosts and we appreciate them opening up their beautifully renovated cottage.

We will absolutely consider returning to this property on our next trip to Southern California, and recommend it to anyone looking looking for a great location and a wonderful experience.

Wonderful stay at this adorable beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our 6 days at this clean, well-equipped, roomy beach cottage. The owner met us on arrival and was extremely kind and helpful. This home is a quick walk into town and to the beach. My husband and I and our 3 kids (ages 17, 15, 10) had plenty of space to move around with comfortable beds and rooms with great storage. We would definitely rent this cottage on our next vacation to Manhattan Beach!

The house was beautiful and suited us perfectly plus it had the added bonus of being walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach. Thanks so much for a great stay.

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at your house. It felt like home away from home!

It was clean and comfortable! Had everything we needed. Every night the older kids would take a walk to Starbucks.

My favorite area was the large back yard. Sit and read and enjoy the beautiful weather.

We had everything we needed, beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, and garage parking.

Would definitely recommend this charming house.

Quaint and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering our family was greeted with a sweet welcome message on the kitchen chalk board from the owners. What a special touch!This house is well maintained with clean, updated furnishings and a cozy beach decor. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space for the five adults staying here. The back patio is not very private due to the apartments that tower over each side of the yard. But there is ample room for activities and barbecuing. The walk is short to a grocery store, many restaurants and local shops and boutiques. The beach is a within walking distance. And can I just say the view from the master bedroom on a clear day is gorgeous! We look forward to staying here again.
