You’ve just discovered the ultimate resort location in Manhattan Beach!
Everything is within steps of the property:
No matter what mood you’re in, you are only a stroll away from your desire. Your car will likely never leave the garage as you relax, enjoy, entertain and be entertained during your stay. Isn’t this what a vacation is all about?
Steps away are some of the hippest night spots, best restaurants and shopping in LA. Whether you have a taste for seafood, steak, sushi, Italian, Greek, French, Mexican or fusion choose from over fifty casual and ZAGAT rated fine dining restaurants.
Activities abound: swim, surf or frolic at the beach. Choose from yoga, jogging, bicycling, rollerblading, volleyball and lighted tennis and basketball courts. You may even choose to visit the aquarium at the end of the pier just three blocks away or take part in the many activities at the recreation center.
Staying here is like staying in a 5-Star Hotel:
Not only is the location ideal, this home away from home exudes the warmth and texture of contemporary qualities, with a light and airy open floor plan that takes maximum advantage of the spectacular ocean views and sunsets. From your first entry through the majestic double doors and onto the slate and hardwood floors listening to the water running over the lit fountain you’ll know you are somewhere extraordinary. This is not just a vacation rental – this is more like a five star resort with the prime location and all the personal amenities you could wish for.
Rejuvenate in the two person Jacuzzi tub, relax in the travertine lined steam shower, or watch the sun go down with some of the best ocean and pier views in Manhattan from your choice of 4 private decks. Enjoy a glass of wine nestled by the fireplace in the sitting area of the Master Bedroom or pamper yourself at one of the day spas just around the corner.
Share an intimate evening with family and friends. Prepare culinary delights with the most spectacular commercial grade gourmet kitchen appointed with every top grade appliance and amenity the most demanding chef could wish for. Or kick back and BBQ on the top deck and enjoy a casual dinner on the outside dining tables.
The freshest meats, seafood, breads and desserts are less than two blocks away and available from the local butcher, bakeries, chocolatier, grocery store and even homemade ice cream at the creamery. Every Tuesday the local Farmers Market offers the freshest possible ingredients just four short blocks away.
This is the most amazing place to vacation in Manhattan Beach. But don't take our word for it, check out what the families who have stayed with us have to say in the review section below. Of course we're also happy to answer any questions you have - just give us a call or email. We look forward to seeing you here soon!
Hello and thank you for visiting our property. We are Doug and Candy and have enjoyed living in sunny Southern California since we were children. Our guests through the years would often comment on what an amazing place we lived in - perfect for vacationing. Now that our children are grown and we have time to take extended trips we decided to share this perfect vacation spot with you!
Doug & Candy purchased this townhome in 2002
We purchased this home when it was newly built and have taken care of it with tender loving care. With the amazing ocean and Pier views from each of the four decks, the incredible restaurant grade kitchen, and its amazing location it was our dream home for ten years.
We cannot imagine a better property to be in while vacationing in Manhattan Beach. Not only is the home itself with its amenities, decks and views stunning - it is steps away from groceries, Starbucks/Coffee Bean/Peets, all the amazing downtown restaurants, bakeries, shops, farmers market and the beach! While others struggle to find parking you'll just walk out your front door! The unique location is also buffered from the downtown noise and has absolutely silent neighbors!
The owners of this house were very nice to work with. The location is great. You are very close to all good things in Manhattan Beach. We had a wonderful time. We had our adult children and grandchildren with us and we all enjoyed it.
I came with my best friend from college and our 5 kids. We both felt totally safe having them walk and bike everywhere!!
Doug (owner) was super helpful, honest, but never intrusive.
Be careful about renting places without good reviews...
I would stay here time and again!
First let me start off by saying thank you to Candy and Doug for making our stay at their home in Manhattan Beach go so smoothly. The home was full of thoughtful essentials that made our stay that much better. From coffee and fresh fruit to beautiful arrangements of flowers and lovely smelling bars of soaps in the shower. They really covered all of the basis, making our stay perfect. We have rented a home in Manhattan Beach once and sometimes twice a year continuously over the past 6 years and this home was by far our favorite. Typically we have rented on The Strand... but my family was all in agreement that this home's location was by far our favorite. It's still only a 5 minute walk to The Strand and the beach.. at the very most. But being located right in town was a nice treat. Everything was at our finger tips. From Starbucks and Pete's to shopping and an endless selection of wonderful restaurants. I would say that the only negative that we experienced while staying there was that in a couple of the bedrooms we couldn't get the blinds to close all of the way so there wasn't privacy from anyone walking by. I brought this to Candy and Doug's attention when we checked out and I am sure they have had the blinds repaired. We really enjoyed our stay and are looking froward to staying in their home again!
Recently rented this wonderful condo for a week. We enjoyed being able to walk to some great boutiques, restaurants and of course the spectacular beach !! I loved the third floor which had a great open feeling! The property was much larger than expected from the pictures on-line! We ordered groceries from Vons and they were waiting for us when we arrived. First delivery is free. Owner always available for questions and would definitely recommend this property to friends and family. Loved having views of the ocean.
Location perfect for our family celebration. There were 8 of us. 6 adults & 2 young boys ages 3 & 1. The 3 levels were perfect for our 3 families. Kitchen & entertainment room all set on 3rd floor with nice deck, great grill & a wonderful kitchen.
House is 1 or 2 blocks from all the action but just far enough away for very little noise. We'd stay here again ASAP. Very clean. No problems.
Doug and Candy are perfect hosts and entrust their guests with a beautiful home which they care for with obvious great LOVE! In shows in every way. The house will meet and exceed your expectations. The location is perfect the town welcoming in every way.We have rented properties around the world and this one rates straight A's!!!!!!
We felt totally at home which is always our dream vacation ... we would not hesitate to return ourselves or recommend it to friends and family!!!!
And KUDOS to Terry the booking agent ... she makes arranging and setting up the visit so easy and
worry free ... a great team at the JEWEL BY THE SEA!!!
Take a leisurely walk or bike ride along the strand...if you head north, you can ride along the water to Marina del Rey, or Venice for a fun day of people watching!
There is a small aquarium at the end of the Manhattan Pier within the 'Round House', which features local sea creatures found in our waters. There is a small concession stand that offers ice cream, snacks and sodas. Just sit along the pier and watch some world class volleyball players, as well as some incredible surfers! Enjoy it all...
Head south to Hermosa Beach for a lively mixture of restaurants, pubs and shopping by the Pier. Just a bit further and you are in the King Harbor Marina, where you can parasail, jet ski, rent a sailboat for the day, or just relax and have a nice meal overlooking the bay. Continue further, and you will come upon the 'always colorful' Redondo Pier with amusement parks, live music and lots of fresh seafood!
We have several parks in the area...closest being Live Oak, just 4 blocks north around 15th and Valley. There are 12 lit tennis courts available for a nominal fee, a children's playground as well as a small dog park.
On Tuesday's make sure to visit the Fresh Farmers Market from 12n to 4p, just around the corner on the back side of the Metlox Center...just off Valley a few blocks north. During the Summer there are free Concerts in the Park, (Pollywog Park), on Manhattan Beach Blvd...between Sepulveda and Aviation.
