About Jennifer Palmquist and Catherine Knowland

We brought our children and grandchildren here every summer. We took them to the beach, road bikes and enjoyed the town. Now our children bring their children here. You will see their photos around the condo. I live in Portland, Oregon. My sister lives in the Bay Area. We spend a great deal of time cleaning and furnishing our place. We buy local art work you will see around our place. We love to bike ride and you will find four new adult Strand bikes in our garage.

Jennifer Palmquist and Catherine Knowland purchased this condo in 1996

Why Jennifer Palmquist and Catherine Knowland chose Manhattan Beach

Originally my dad had a place up on 21st street. When he bought this place he wanted to get on the Strand so we would not have to lug our children and toys all the way down the hill and up again.

What makes this condo unique

Location. Location. It is the best place to be. Some of the older beach front houses have turned into new, large privately owned estate type retreats. So getting a lovely place just north of pier is all but impossible. This is a perfect place for a family. You don't have to drive anywhere. You can come here and you won't need a car.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this home was great for our family. Our family of 5 felt very comfortable at this property. This home offered great amenities and the location was second to none. Being on the second floor is perfect for anyone wanting to be right on the "Strand" and still have some privacy. The view is amazing of the deck. Very easy to get to the beach as well. We went to the beach every day and this place makes carrying all your beach gear a little easier with the easy access to the beach. The description and photo's where very accurate. You are in walking distance to a lot of very good restaurants and a grocery store if you want to cook in. Jen, the owner was easy to deal with and very helpful throughout the entire process. This was our first time using VRBO and she made the process very easy. We would recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay on the "Strand" in Manhattan Beach. The entire family is looking forward to coming back in the future.

Owner's Response: This is a great family place. Their family did all the things there are do here, rode bikes, went to the beach, enjoyed the town and were front and center for the shark this summer.

We spent three wonderful nights at this property with our daughter who lives in the Los Angeles area. The property was just as described only much better. The second floor location is good since you have the benefit of the deck and overhang for the roof. The ocean breeze through the doors was great! The property is right on the strand as described. We took advantage of the bikes and rode every day! They even included bike locks and a basket. The kitchen had everything we needed including coffee and filters. That's really nice when you are traveling by air. The Manhattan Beach area is very chic and we loved the shops and restaurants. All within walking distance from your place. Thanks so much, we will be back!

Wonderful House in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter, grandson and I had a great vacation in this beautiful house. Right on the beach and within steps to the center of town. The house was equipped with everything we needed. Very nice kitchen. We even had a Pack 'n Play, highchair, and some sand toys for our grandson - all in excellent condition. We had one minor maintenance situation which was solved promptly and completely by the very nice and efficient handyman. The owner provided us with perfect directions and instructions for getting into the house. Everything worked like a charm. I would recommend this house to anyone and certainly hope to be returning soon.

Great location and wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time staying at this location and it was even better. The kitchen was remodeled and was spacious and updated. You can't beat this location. You are right on the beach and a couple of blocks from all of the great restaurants and downtown. Jennifer has everything you can think of from a volleyball to cookware. We will be back again! Thanks Jennifer!

Great location and perfect for a family!

This was our second time staying on the The Strand and first time staying at this property. We were very happy with this home. Jennifer had everything you could think of available for her guests. The house was clean and the location couldn't get any better. We already made plans to come back next year!

Wonderful Condo; Perfect Beach Location

  • 5 of 5
This well equipped and maintained Manhattan Beach condo is located only steps from the beach (it is on The Strand) and within two blocks of central MB downtown shopping and restaurants. It is perfect for those who choose not to have a car or, who do, but are happy to leave it in the garage. There are two parking spaces, one in an enclosed garage, a true luxury so near the beach. The owner is extremely helpful and friendly and the neighbors courteous and pleasant. We stayed here for a month last year and fell in love with the place....both the condo and Manhattan Beach. Consequently, we came back right after the first of the year for two+ weeks and are already talking about when we will return.
