Property Details

Updated: Apr 26, 2015
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Oceanfront 2-level home in an unbeatable location!

This home has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Two Bedrooms are situated on the 2ndfloor, each with balconies that look out to the Pacific Ocean. You can count on a good nights rest, as the soft sounds of the waves lull you to sleep. The home comfortably sleeps 6, in addition an air mattress is available upon request to accommodate 8.

The kitchen is fully stocked with new appliances (coffee maker, microwave, toaster oven, blender, gas stove and dishwasher). There is dishware for 6 and many extras. For those who love to grill, the outside deck is equipped with a high quality Weber Barbeque. This home has a formal dining area and an outdoor bar with chairs if you’d like to take in the views while you dine.

Cozy up in the living room and watch a movie on our 50 inch Plasma TV with DVD, Blue Ray, HD cable and the ultimate surround sound speakers. These amenities provide a great movie watching experience!

High Speed Internet Access, Wifi is also included.

With “The Strand” just steps from the home’s large deck, you can watch the surf and dolphins swimming by morning and take in a gorgeous sunset in the evening while relaxing in the Jacuzzi spa. If you’ve taken a stroll or have been sunbathing out on the sand, the home has an outdoor shower for a quick rinse. Beach towels and beach chairs are available for your stay we well. Enjoy a full view of the Pacific Ocean spreading from the Palos Verdes Peninsula all the way to Malibu and even Catalina Island off in the distance. Despite being so close to The Strand, the deck area and Jacuzzi are private, as the home is raised above the boardwalk.

The North end of Manhattan Beach has less foot-traffic than the Downtown Manhattan Beach area near the pier, though the rental comes with beach cruisers to get to that busier part of town in just minutes. The bikes are a great way to sightsee for miles North (Marina del Rey) and South (Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach Pier). Also within a quick stroll’s distance are some of the best breakfast cafes, excellent restaurants, a cupcake specialty shop, local boutiques, hair salons and bars to grab a drink.

For those thinking of trying their hand on a surfboard, this is the spot-- known as one of LA county's best surfing waves. Surfboard rental is just a few blocks away if you decide to give it a try!

This area really has the best of both worlds... laid back beach living with all the charm and excitement for the perfect vacation experience.

We are baby friendly, a crib and high chair are available if needed, please let us know upon booking.

FOR YOU PROTECTION, PLEASE SPEAK WITH THE PROPERTY OWNER ON THE PHONE PRIOR TO SENDING ANY FUNDS VIA WIRE TRANSFER.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for sharing your beach-front home with us. We woke up to see many surfers hitting the waves before changing into their work clothes - wow what a way to start the day! We rode your bikes all the way to the end of the strand (south) just past Redondo beach and back yesterday, and today we rode to Venice and Santa Monica. There isn't anything much better than California weather and riding bikes along the beach so far! Hearing the waves, seeing the beach and watching the people and their dogs. There is never a dull moment. Everyone was grabbing their cell phones and cameras for pictures of the beautiful sunset. It's awesome how this house has so many windows to enjoy the views from not one, but 2 bedrooms (thank for getting blinds!), the Kitchen, den and Kitchen table. We love the fluffy white towels, a big plus. (Don't let anyone ever use clorox on them- it makes them stiff/hard.)

Our family often gets 2 bedrooms at resorts, but found a house on the beach brings us together more in the den and porch. We've saved money having breakfast and some of our meals here. With views of the beach from 2 sides of the kitchen, being in the kitchen is no problem! : ) ... for either preparation or cleanup.

We've enjoyed the beach view from the kitchen table during our meals and games of scrabble and card games... while listening to the sound of the waves. We slept with the sliding glass doors cracked to listen to the ocean while we slept. We hate to leave this wonderful place - The Browns from San Antonio, TX



P.S. Being a flight attendant with American has enabled our family to go on lots of vacations. Our teenage children ranked this vacation as one of their favorites. We rented 2 bikes in Hermosa Beach so our family could bike ride together on the strand - Our daughter even brought her roller blades from home to try on the strand. Thanks for the wonderful memories.

great location

  • 5 of 5
We loved sitting at the balcony, watching people walk by and zipping our wine and enjoying the beach. It is very relaxing. We didn't try the barbecue or the Jacuzzi. The owner and the agent are both very helpful whenever we have questions...
It is well worth it and we will surely return!

Unbeatable location, great setup

  • 4 of 5
Some friends and I had a great time here last week. The beds were big and comfortable, and towels provided were clean, and the beach view from the deck was simply unbelievable. Wine in the hot tub, watching the sun set over the water ... it was fantastic.

The beach with open volleyball courts was 2 minutes from door, and good food and drinks were a 10 minute's walk away. Only loses one star because of the parking, as it is indeed treacherous to get down there. I scraped my car fairly badly the first time before I got the hang of it.

Be careful, but it's definitely worth the trip!

Narrow driveway on a hill

  • 1 of 5
Think hard about the parking. We stayed at this house for less than an hour. We requested a refund as soon as we left on a Friday and we didn't receive an email until Sunday. The owner called Monday and refused to give us a refund. I had requested a refund of 2 of the 3 days booked.

The driveway was extremely narrow and on a hill. It was a nightmare going down and even worse going back up. We got out before the other tenants came to park because if we hadn't we would have been stuck.

The back exterior of the house is shabby. As you pull in you park next to the outdoor washer and dryer that are shared with the tenants in the back unit. There are no doors just a wooden 3 sided shelter. You enter into the back door. The door is an old no panel door that is deteriorating from moisture with holes at the bottom. Just a real bad start and it didn't get better. The inside of the house was decent but not up to par for the price. The hot tub was cold.

It might work for college kids, providing they all arrive in one very small vehicle. There is much better out there to rent for what you pay here. It There a terrible experience and a waste of a lot of money.

Our 2nd time staying at The Strand House!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for opening up your home - we enjoyed our stay tremendously!

I made Thanksgiving dinner there and brought most of the food down from the Bay Area, the kitchen worked very well to feed my family and a few friends on Thanksgiving.

The hot tub is a big plus because my kids surf and needed to warm up after being in the ocean.
The gas grill is very important to the way we cook.
Bikes are good although we did not use them this time.

The new code/lock and no keys is very good - I worried about losing the keys last time.

The four big beach towels were great this time - not sure if you had them two years ago.

Kitchen dishes/supplies were about right for our family of 6.

Washer/dryer is great to have.

Beds were very comfortable and the sheets were comfortable since the night air was cool.

The chairs and bar on the outside porch are so inviting - the kids did homework, ate and relaxed out there a lot.

The large TV was great for watching college football and movies.
Bocce ball was nice to have - don't think that was available two years ago.

Of course, being right on The Strand is amazing - the ocean is so beautiful


Possible changes:
1.With three kids in college and one in high school, the kids prefer to sleep separately. So if you ever need to replace the sofa in the room where the bikes are stored, to replace it with a daybed would be good. We did see the air mattress and I also brought one down - but did not use them. One son slept on the living room sofa with sheets.
2. Netflix? We wanted to start watching Christmas movies like "Elf" and assumed it would be on. Possibly having a movie subscription would be nice but not necessary.

Again, thank you for opening up your home to us - it is an experience that I would not have ever expected our family to have and now we've done it twice!
