As many are familiar with the affluent coastal city of Manhattan Beach my review is for those who wish to find that perfect spot in mist of one of the hottest suburbs in Los Angeles County. Surrounded by desirable ocean breeze, clean air and best of all the high average temperature of 69 degrees. Also let me mention that according to US Census data, Manhattan Beach has the ranking of the second most educated city and fifth in the state of California. High profile sport athletes and entertainment industry individuals are drawn to choose Manhattan Beach as their home for all of what it has to offer the beach lovers.
My husband and I were lucky and blessed enough to find this beautiful cottage, we traveled to California from Houston, TX with our young children and the minute I found this cottage I knew my family would have a dreamy experience. We were a comfortable two blocks walking distance from the beach; GQ Magazine named Manhattan Beach one of the nation's six best beaches in a recent article published in July 2014.
We fell in love with the cottage immediately so we decided to book it for a two-month stay. Our experience is one to share, our family went from fishing and splashing around West Lake Houston in daddy's boat to surfing lessons, paddle boarding, nice bike rides, close to all shopping, and best of all beautiful long walks at the strand to see the breath taking sunset. Thousands of people walk the strand to the beach and shopping venues because everything is conveniently at walking distance. The shopping, strolling and walking to places like the Manhattan Beach pier where you find the Roundhouse Marine Studies Lab & Aquarium, now that was fun for my kids, I highly suggest to browse carefully and read all of educational information they have to offer.
The Westwind Cottage is perfect for a great night sleep, it is equipped with all the necessary gadgets (stove, sink, washer, dryer, car garage & beach toys) and it is beautifully decorated to give you that exciting beach feeling. It is conveniently close to everything Manhattan Beach has to offer, my children's favorite was the nearby creamery and food, yes food and for those who love to cook as much as I do Vons grocery store is a few minutes away. But no worries, if you are there to enjoy a delightful vacation free of cooking there are plenty of restaurants that cater to your door.
We wish your stay is as fruitful, productive and relaxing as ours was. We can't wait to go back. God bless.
