About Dan

We work in the film and graphic design industries and like to apply our design aesthetic to our rental properties. We own and manage several properties in the area. We design our properties to be luxurious homes where we would want to stay ourselves.

Dan purchased this house in 2014

Why Dan chose Sand Section

15 minutes south of LAX, only 1 1/2 blocks from the best beaches on the West Coast! Walk to everything - shops, restaurants, coffee and a fabulous night life! The Manhattan Beach Pier is a short walk with aquariums, great surfing, boogie boarding, volleyball or just relax and read a good book. Easy drive to all the LA tourist attractions - Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Universal Studios, Disneyland and Dodger Stadium. You will love this cozy beach community!

What makes this house unique

If you have ever stayed in the South end of Manhattan Beach, you will understand why it is so special. It's an easy walk to family friendly beaches, great surfing, and the wonderful MB downtown area! Leave your car in the garage and live the beach lifestyle!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family agrees that this home has been our best VRBO experience ever. Super comfortable and clean and exceptionally well equipped. All the bedrooms are equally comfy (so no arguing over who gets which room). The location is perfect. Two blocks to the beach and walking distance to many good restaurants. Hardly used our car at all. There are two boardwalks along the beach that stretch for miles, one just for bikes which we really enjoyed. I also appreciated the owner's prompt responses to our questions. Thanks so much for providing us with a great mini vacation Dan!

Great location and tremendous house

  • 5 of 5

Went to this house with my family of four, my wife and two adult children, along with my sister and her husband. The house comes as advertised! Perfectly located between the two fun cities , a couple blocks from the beach, and with everything you need to enjoy the house and the beach. Really well stocked with things like soaps, detergents, garbage well as beach towels, chairs, coolers, bikes. Would recommend this place and would stay again for sure!

Charming, comfortable home moments away from the beach and town center

  • 5 of 5

My co-workers and I stayed in this lovely home while we were in LA for a video production. It was clean, cozy, 2 blocks from the ocean, and a 10-minute walk to the center of town with great restaurants and shops. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a getaway. The ocean is beautiful and I saw dolphins frolicking in the waves my first morning here! The beds were comfy. The set up was private enough for everyone to have their own space. The kitchen was equipped with everything you'd need plus it was perfect for socializing. A very nice place to stay!

Clean, spacious, modern beach house in prime location at Manhattan beach, with several amenities

  • 5 of 5

Adult family of 5 (59yo and 4 x 28-31yo adults) , stayed here in early November 2016 for 4 nights.

Location is perfect, steps from Manhattan beach and about a 10 minute walk to Manhattan beach pier. House is on a quiet street, with quiet neighbours. Manhattan beach is quiet, safe, clean, and huge!

The beach house is clean, spacious and comfortable. We were surprised with the number of amenities available in the house (beach towels, beach bags, sun hats, bicycles, beach chairs, boogie boards, kites, wine fridge, washer/dryer, were some that we used). This beach house has everything that you could possibly need.

The owner responds quickly by email. Our only regret was that we didn't stay here longer! Highly recommended.
