About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6, Fireplace

We are just 3 houses to the ocean. . Located in a quiet, residential neighborhood, we are a HOUSE, not a condo or apartment and we have a double-car garage because parking at the beach is premium. You can walk everywhere, to restaurants, markets, shopping downtown Hermosa and downtown Manhattan Beach. We have many local shops and restaurants to walk to. Many families spend their vacation without a car. We have a great ocean view from inside the house and from the garden. Our renters always comment about our super-comfortable beds and the cleanliness of the house, the furnishings and the linens. We have wireless internet and three televisions. Sit out in our yard/patio in the morning with the newspaper and your coffee, or in the evening watching the ocean and sunsets. Upon request: cribs, strollers, high chairs. No pets and no smokers. House just refurbished with new paint and refinished hardwood floors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed the house - it was spacious, well kept, and a great location!!

We have already referred the house to several of our son's parents who visit LA. Hopefully they will be in contact with you as they make future plans. I will also be in touch next time we visit the boys

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd visit to this property and it won't be our last. We have two grandsons and the owner has thought of everything when it comes to accommodating guests. There were toys for the beach along with chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, ice chests and a wagon to haul it all.

We loved eating meals each day while gazing at the ocean in the dining area. The location is close to several restaurants but the best part of all is the short walk to the beach. Just pass two houses and you have arrived.

We look forward to our next visit.

Our Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We came and stayed at this wonderful home for the month of November. Everything was perfect. Perfectly located, perfectly clean, perfect view of the ocean and the beach was just two houses away. Once we provisioned the house with our food, we hardly ever used our car as we walked to both downtown areas and ate many of our meals at nearby eateries. The décor is charming, comfortable and clean. This home is right in the middle of Manhattan Beach Per and the Hermosa Pier with lots of small boutique shops. This is our second stay and we will definitely be back.

Delightful way to spend 4 weeks...

  • 5 of 5

Time really flew by in a hurry, much too fast. The 3BR, 2 bath home is very well maintained and fully equipped, the beautiful beach is 3 houses away across two streets, restaurants are in walking distance, and the owner is friendly and helpful. The Hermosa Beach pier is 15 minutes’ walk one way, the pier at Manhattan Beach is 20 minutes in the other direction. A roomy garage and very pleasant patio are two additional features. We hope to come back again.

All fine: near beach, top condition, helpful mgmt

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our one-week rental here and is talking already about return visits. The property is superbly situated two streets from the beautiful, spotless, wide beach and is equidistant between the Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach piers. The home is well maintained, very clean, and was well suited for the 5 of us (four adults, one child). And it was a pleasure to deal from start to finish with the courteous, responsive, and very helpful owner. Some occasional traffic noise is noticeable, but was never a detriment.

This retired professor is happy to give this rental experience an A, with no grade inflation here.

Owner's Response: This family left me this message when leaving 'My family and I really enjoyed our stay in your home. Already it seems so long ago, but we have such vivid memories of the comfort, cleanliness, amenities and, of course, such proximity to the beach.' When homes are so close to the beach you always hear people parking in their cars, walking past the house to the beach.......which we think is part of a happy vacation, seeing others enjoying the sand and sea. Other than a few daytime visitors parking on the street out front of all homes this close to the beach, our nighttime is very quiet. This family is already planning on returning in just 5 months for a Christmas holiday.
