About D Mader
We have owned this property for nearly 20 years, we lived here for 2 years with our young sons and then were transferred back east. The unit was an annual rental for 12 years and got a gorgeous face lift in 2015. Enjoy all the fab upgrades like glass subway tile, new appliances, flooring and fixtures. We live in Northern California and come frequently with our now older boys to surf and bike and breathe. Manhattan Beach is a wonderful hidden gem in Los Angeles-that is close to everything but feels worlds away. We absolutely LOVE the area and will be permanent residents again one day.
D Mader purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why D Mader chose El Porto
This location is more of a locals feel. El Porto is sand section living away from the touristy part of Manhattan Beach. Wonderful walkable eateries such as the Local Yolk, El Tarasco, North End and Two Guns Coffee where you won't have to wait for a table. Hair cuts and nail shops near by, bakeries and coffee shops, rent a board at Players/El Porto Boards across the street and hit the surf on one of the states best surfing spots, 2 car garage makes usually tough parking a breeze, walk or bike the mile to the pier and triple the number of restaurant and shopping choices. Hit Sharkeez or OBs in the afternoon for fish tacos and to catch the game. Our home is comfortable and updated, with nice bedding, nice TVs, nice baths, laundry area, you are minutes from everything or you can sit on the deck and catch the sunset. 10 min cab ride from LAX $10-25 Uber depending on time of day.
What makes this Apartment unique
2 car garage is nice in the beach areas, bike all along the strand up to Marina del Rey and down to Hermosa. Quiet and local-Once you come, you will want to come again. Watch the dolphins as you make a meal. Sit in the window seat and let the stress melt away as you gaze at the blue water. Quartz counters and all new inside is clean, beachy and relaxing. If you are 2 couples, or a family with older kids-this is your spot...does not appeal to younger children as much since there are stairs and the hill down to the beach is quite steep..and is not pet friendly for similar reasons.

Great location and perfect family setup
Great beach and family friendly place. Very clean with a helpful and knowledgeable owner. We will be back.
Another excellent stay!
I just love this house! It's bright and clean and comfy and has everything you need! It's so close to the beach, you can walk or bike to everything you need!
Thank you for a great weekend!!
Love this amazing place, stayed with 3 girlfriends and walked to the beach for sunset, rode bikes down the strand and walked to wonderful eateries! Great to have the kitchen and living area so we could share morning coffee and stories before getting ready to adventure. The loveliest little touches and decor, we all wished we didn’t have to go home.
Best Place Ever!
We would stay here again in a heartbeat! A perfect fit for a family of four. The location is incredible, the cleanliness and classiness was 5 Star quality. The overall feel encouraged relaxation, peacefulness and vacation. There is truly something special about this this property. Thank you!
Cozy Beach Cottage-Excellent hosts!
We had such a lovely time enjoying Thanksgiving week with our two college students in this well-stocked beach home. We were able to cook and bake many of our family favorites during our stay. The home is thoughtfully appointed for the needs and desires of the traveller. Our host Deena, was considerate of our needs, providing some kitchen extras to make pies and such! Deena's kindness shined throughout our experience. From the start when making our reservation request to returning our security deposit - Denna was extremely responsive and accommodating at all times. The location is great for quick access to LAX and the beach! We managed nicely for a week with no car by mostly walking and biking in the area. Everything is as stated in property listing. Excellent experience!
Wonderful stay in this gorgeous apartment
We stayed here for 5 days with our 2.5 year old son, and just had the best time. The area is fantastic, super chilled and family friendly, and the property is literally 2 blocks to the ocean. We brought a toddler gate to secure the stairs which really helped it to feel safe and suitable for any age child. The apartment is beautifully kept, there is everything you could need to stay there and more- including beach items, bikes, sun creams, beach towels and gorgeous bath and shower products that really make this place feel like an extra special home from home.
The beds are comfortable, showers powerful and everything is very clean and well looked after. The garage parking is really handy, we stored our stroller etc in there too, and enjoyed lots of walks around Manhattan Beach and the strand- you could literally leave your car there the whole trip and explore on foot if you wanted to.
Overall a perfect trip to LA and we will definitely be back.
