Notes:
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.

Great House - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Great location just a short walk to restaurants, shops and beach. The house was very clean and had plenty of room for family of 5. The house had everything we needed including beach towels, beach chairs, etc. Mike and Melissa were great to work with. We will stay here again!

Lovely cottage and a kind helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

My family just stayed at this charming cottage for a week. The house was well maintained and clean. It was a great location, quick walk to the beach as well as local restaurants and shopping. The house is stocked with everything you need for the beach. The owner was wonderful, she met us and showed us everything we needed to know about the house and checked on us later in the week as well. We enjoyed our stay!

Perfect location and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in Manhattan Beach and this house was perfect for our family. You are literally a couple mins walk to downtown and everything that Manhattan Beach has to offer. We found lots of great restaurants like Nicks and Petros nearby and our 2 year old loved the beach and playing in the secure backyard.

I would highly recommend this property and the host Melissa was also extremely accommodating and helpful.

Home was in good repair - a few minor items - but it was very close to what was described & pictured. Very good instructions/information available. We enjoyed the stay & would stay again.
