About Michael

San Diego born and raised, a true So Cal native. Long time Manhattan Beach resident who has raised four daughters here. Lives an active lifestyle in sports, community, entertainment. Is resourceful, informative, helpful, respectful.

Michael purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Michael chose Manhattan Beach

Why consider anything but the best? Manhattan Beach is a magical place! Simply stated, there just isn't a better community to give you the many activities, entertainment, sports, rest, pleasure, or anything you desire for you or your family. It is a Very friendly community, peaceful and safe with a very low crime rate, award winning schools, Eco friendly, cutting edge, sparkling sun filled days, glistening ocean, stunning event filled holidays, energetic yet relaxed.

What makes this cottage unique

When I wake up each morning, usually to sparkling blue skies, view of the waves, and scent of the ocean. I head to the Strand with my dog for a walk, into town for Peets Coffee, chatting with friendly neighbors along the way. I return home, hop on my bike ride to the next town, Hermosa Beach, to work as a personal trainer. I love the time I have to enjoy my fabulous town and often venture to hike, run in the sand, play volleyball, body surf or sample some of the fabulous food from MB Post, Strand House, or local's favorite, 'Fonz's Working up a sweat on the beach often calls for a walk to neighborhood fish tacos and beer at Shellback Tavern, Manhattan Brewing Co, OB's or Fish Bar while window shopping along the way at Diane's beach wear, LF, True Religion, Free People to name a few. Throughout the week, I enjoy local farmers market Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. There is often events,or evening karaoke at Panchos, live music and dancing at Strand House, Sharks Cove, Sharkeez within walking distance, Comedy Club, or local playhouses. Although there is plenty to do, see, & hear locally, I occasionally make the drive into the city for more! YOUR DREAM CAN COME TRUE!

Quick walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at this cute little condo! Has a nice private patio, recently updated and well taken care of. It is just under a mile from the main part of MB, a 10 minute walk along the beach. Has a nice view of the pacific ocean from the front. We walked to Marine Street Cafe both mornings for a great breakfast and also has great views of the ocean. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others!!

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic. We used it as a nice base to travel all over, including San Diego, Pasadena, and Santa Monica, with very little trouble. But we didn't need to. We could have spent the entire time in Manhattan Beach. The rental is within walking distance of both downtown and the north end, as well as a very short walk to the beach.

The beach was fantastic. Manhattan beach has a very cozy feel, despite being so close to LA.

The rental itself is very comfy, clean, and the owner is extremely helpful. The kitchen was amazing for cooking breakfast.

Highly recommended.

Perfect Vacation Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place, it was slightly outside downtown but not too far - just perfect. The BED was amazing!! When I look for vacation rentals the first thing I look at is a picture of the bed to ensure it is 'up to date' - the bed was amazing. The space was perfect, walking distance to the beach, downtown manhattan beach and El Porto. Very clean and up to date place. We even discovered a great new place (new to us) the FishBar - yum.

July 4th weekend

  • 5 of 5

My wife son and I had a wonderful time at your property. It was clean and well maintained, and most importantly close to everything that Manhattan Beach has to offer (beach, restaurants, nightlife, beautiful vistas, etc.). The owner was extremely helpful and accomodating during our visit and always available to answer our questions. We had a great visit over the July 4th weekend. Extremely comfortable bed and pillows for a good night's rest after a long day enjoying the outdoors.
