The spacious game room on the 1st floor is adjacent to the tennis courts, has a comfy large sectional, fireplace, large flat screen TV, 3- in-1 game table that converts from billiards to air hockey to ping pong!

About Nancy

We are a local family who are very committed to this gem of a beach town. We are grateful for everything that this wonderful little city provides in terms of its beauty and sophistication, sense of community, the beach, schools, hip restaurants and shops, and close proximity to all the culture and creativity of LA, but outside of the bustle, crime, traffic and attitude of the west side and Hollywood. Very involved and passionate about the arts, a former entertainment industry executive now currently serving as Cultural Arts Commissioner for the City of Manhattan Beach. Hugely into yoga, and willing to give you a private yoga lesson if I'm in town!

                                                      great family rental, residing on a park and walking distance to the beach and downtown!

                                                      Keith W.

                                                      My family rented the house for the month of August. We have 2 children 5 and 7 and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The house is beautiful, modern and well kept. The owner was always accessible and has everything you would want to make your stay like home. The location is perfect as it is on the site of a park with numerous tennis courts, baseball fields and playground. It is also a short walk to the beach and downtown Manhattan beach. The house had everything you need for the beach which made it very convenient. I highly recommend this house for any family.

                                                      Manhattan Beach Experience

                                                      Jeff C.

                                                      My family rented this house for two weeks in June 2017. The house is gorgeous and in a great location for a two week vacation. In addition to being just a short walk to the beach, the house sits high above the Manhattan Beach Park which makes it fun to watch the activity and great place for kids to play basketball, tennis, ping pong, baseball, etc.

                                                      The house itself is really nice with a great downstairs TV and playroom and great master bath. The piano in the main room and balconies on every level make this a great place to take a vacation. We had a tremendous stay and look forward to our next trip.

                                                      Getaway with Style

                                                      Michael D.

                                                      Why choose a cookie cutter hotel room when you can luxuriate in a 3000 sq. ft beach home?

                                                      It was an easy choice for us. Three cheers for the beach home! We loved it!!

                                                      This is a lovely home located in safe beach community that has virtually everything you need within walking distance, including the beach, of course!

                                                      Each level has a covered balcony for dining al fresco or just sitting to enjoy the cool ocean breezes.

                                                      Tennis anyone... basketball, baseball or tot playground? Visit the park located a stone's throw away or just sit on the private 3rd floor balcony as a spectator to it all!

                                                      This is a well appointed home with beautiful travertine floors and bath vanities and granite kitchen counter tops. But, best of all is the owner, Nancy. She's friendly, very responsive and timely.

                                                      We'd definitely stay again!! Beautiful memories! Thank you, Nancy.

                                                      Owner's Response:

Do you need a job as my Director of Marketing - LOL!! it was SUCH a pleasure hosting you and your lovely family. Please please come back again in the future...Wishing you truly all the very best until then!

                                                      Great place

                                                      Mike L.

                                                      The house was great. Clean, Comfortable. Close to Downtown Manhattan Beach and the Beach. Very comfortable beds. Would rec this place.

                                                      Wonderful home!

                                                      This house lives up to its description and was just perfect for our family'. Location was great, easy walk to town or beach and right next to the park. The interior was immaculate and felt like we were at a home (or even better, a fab hotel). Nancy, the owner, was very easy to work with and went out of her way to assist with anything -- including very detailed house instructions. I would highly recommend this home and and can't wait for our next extended trip to MB to rent again.

                                                      James W.

                                                      We rented for the month of July from Nancy, the owner. The property is outstanding as it's truly a family home. Amenities are top notch and reflect the owners' good taste. In addition, the property is right next to a beautiful municipal park where my wife played tennis and my son practiced baseball on a daily basis. We had a couple of minor problems, but they were promptly and professionally handled by Nancy, the owner. We intend to rent this incredible property again.
