CHARMING, REHABBED 1930S SPANISH-STYLE VILLA WITH OCEAN VIEWS, STEPS TO BEACH!

Manhattan Beach Apartment Rental Photos and Description

SLEEPS 4 MAX(including children), Walk to beach, parking, private, on walkstreet

AVAILABILITY (There are 2 separate units, each with their own entrance):

UPPER UNIT: AVAILABLE Sept 1 -28, 2014, then

again beginning Nov 18, 2014.

LOWER UNIT:Available starting Sept 7 2014.

MAXIMUM 4 (including children) for each unit

Here in Manhattan Beach, many historic homes and buildings are torn down without fanfare to make room for new constructions…but we couldn't bear to give that same death sentence to this charismatic 1930's Spanish-style villa!

Manhattan Beach is the perfect location for this personality-packed home, which is a less than 5-minute walk to the ocean and one of the Beach’s best surf spots (we're located on a walk street so accessing the beach couldn't be easier). And it’s also perfect for those who wish to escape to a laid back place by the sea that’s still just 5 minutes from LAX—and centrally located near downtown LA, Hollywood, Long Beach, Santa Monica, Venice, and Anaheim/Disneyland, too.

Manhattan Beach is the kind of place where locals come to walk their dogs on The Strand’s walking / biking path and escape the more tourist-heavy beaches. From this rental, all of Manhattan Beach’s perks are in close walking distance—like the ocean, shops and restaurants on Manhattan Beach Blvd & Pier to the south, and shops & bars to the north.

This home is a duplex with an upper and lower unit, each available for rent separately and with their own entrance—one upstairs and one downstairs. Both sleep 4, with one California King bed in the bedroom, one bath, and one plush sofa bed in each. Other perks include a shared washer/dryer between the two units, free WiFi, and one private parking spot for each unit as well—believe me, you’ll want one in this area!

You can also rent the whole place. It’s the perfect set-up for groups who want to travel together but have a bit of time apart, too. Please inquire for details and rates.

DOWNSTAIRS UNIT

AVAILABLE BEGINNING Sept. 7, 2014

The downstairs unit (ON THE 1ST/GROUND FLOOR) is the smaller of the two units at an intimate 500 square feet—just the right size for a couple, small family, or a traveling business professional.

My husband and I fell in love with the home’s history, and throughout our recent remodel of the downstairs unit, we took great care to maintain its colorful personality and heritage and enhanced its existing beauty with Spanish tile work, rich turquoise paint, and vintage artwork from Mexico.

Wake up and fry an egg in the sunny eat-in kitchen, using the vintage, professionally refurbished O'Keefe & Merritt cobalt blue stove. We LOVE this delightful stove, and so do our guests—in fact, we find it provides a more even heat than today’s sleek, modern models.

A turquoise back splash, custom-made self closing cabinets and dining area with exotic monkey pod wood bar top and vintage tractor seat stools give the whole kitchen the feel of a fun Mexican restaurant—a great space to spend a night in.

The bathroom in this unit includes a brand new, cast iron claw foot tub with shower. Sink into it with a glass of wine! The toilet and pedestal sink are brand new, too. But we maintained the Spanish influence with custom made tiles, a new light fixture from Mexico, and a vibrant paint color.

**UPSTAIRS UNIT Not Available until SEPT 2, 2014

The upstairs rental offers the entire upper floor for sprawling out—one of our guests called it a “mini Mexican mansion”—including a 500 square foot outdoor living space.This unit also is a 1 bedroom and 1 bath as the lower unit, but also has a formal dining area and den area in addition to the living room area. This unit is decorated with beautiful authentic Mexican furniture, light fixtures and artwork for our guests to enjoy.

A designer kitchen awaits as well, with stainless steel appliances, wine refrigerator, yards of counter tops, and all the utensils and cooking tools you need.

Exposed wood beams, big picture windows with views of the ocean, an expansive dining table, and a buttery soft leather couch make the living area a haven for hanging out.

There’s a sunken den, too (check out the vibrant tile work on those steps!), where you can cozy up to a crackling fire in the indoor fireplace on a cool evening. On a warm evening, step onto the lush, courtyard-style patio bursting with greenery and flowering bougainvillea and made tranquil by a trickling water feature and music on the outdoor, surround-sound speakers.

And the bedroom and en suite bath are pretty special, too. There’s a vintage dresser that’s been converted into a one-of-a-kind sink in the bathroom, and there’s a Jacuzzi tub for sinking into.

Dimmers on all the lights throughout the home create a special glow and ambiance in the evening. Add to that the warm ocean breeze blowing in through the gorgeous French windows, and you have California beach living at its best!

COME AND SEE US!

We’d love to have you at this charming beach close villa in Manhattan Beach. We know you’ll fall in love with it as we did. Get in touch with me today to book your stay in one of the two units…or both!

Please indicate which unit you are interested in, upper or lower unit. Upper Unit not available until Sept 2nd, 2014.

Great vacation condo

  • 5 of 5
My girls and I stayed here for some girl time before one goes back to college. It was a great location only blocks from Manhattan beach & and a short walk to restaurant's and shopping. The condo was perfect, cozy & inviting just what we wanted. The place had everything we needed and Annette responded very quickly to any questions we had.. Instead of renting a car we decided to rent bikes so we could enjoy riding to Venice Beach one day and Hermosa the next. It was a great experience all the way around!! I would definitely recommend renting from Annette & her husband.

Owner's Response: It was great having you and your daughters stay with us. I am glad you were able to take advantage of what Manhattan Beach has to offer and did not need a car. Bike to Venice? Wow, that sounds like that was fun. Come back anytime!
Warmest Aloha, Annette & Chris

Charming bungalow in ideal MB location

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I enjoyed an amazing stay at this beach bungalow over July 4th holiday. It was perfectly located just a block or two up from the beach, and we walked everywhere. We live in Santa Monica and were looking for the perfect Manhattan Beach staycation, and this met all of our needs. We would definitely stay again!

Annette was also very responsive to our needs, and seemed like a sweetheart of a person.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5
This is a happy, bright, cheery place just as it is pictured. Annette makes you feel like you have arrived home when she meets you and welcomes you into this cozy space. It is an easy walk downhill on a walk street to the most beautiful part of Manhattan Beach's beach. A bit longer walk to downtown Manhattan Beach either along the strand or on the main street, which is perfect for those who like to be outdoors and get exercise. You can also walk just a few blocks to North Manhattan which offers a selection of restaurants and services

Great Pride of Ownership that Extends to Their Renters and Continual Attention to Details

  • 5 of 5
Annette and Chris are the perfect hosts. Annette is constantly thinking of her renters. I am convinced that she asks herself daily how she can improve their experience and then she implements upgrades. She goes out of her way to make the environment, warm, cozy and full functioning. She takes delight in surprising her guests with upgrades that add to the charm of the home. Always responsive, positive and so easy to work with. Welcoming at every turn! An excellent example is how I came home after being gone for the weekend and Chris had taken the initiative to hang my bicycle in the garage from hooks, making it super easy for me to store. Wow! Annette and Chris are rare finds, as is their lovely home.

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5
Annette and Chris were amazing to rent from. They welcomed us upon arrival and made sure that we had information about the house and neighborhood. The description of the house was extremely accurate and we felt right at home in this beautifully decorated and well kept home. The house was beautiful and the relaxing coutyard patio was a terrific place for my children to play, and I also enjoyed the privacy of this area and spent evenings reading in this tranquil space. The house has everything you will need to enjoy your stay. The washer and dryer was a bonus to our two week vacation, and the available parking at the house made it easy to come and go without worrying about where to park (parking in the sand area of Manhattan Beach can be a challenge). The distance to the beach was wonderful and my family made the easy walk to the beach daily. The distance to restaurants, shops, parks, grocery stores, and the beach helped make our stay a terrific one. This rental was a terrific place to enjoy the relaxed feeling of southern California. It was also a great location to enjoy the benefits of being in the Los Angeles area. While renting the house we also enjoyed visiting Knotts Berry Farm, the Grifith Park observatory, Hollywood, the Long Beach aquarium and Legoland. For anyone looking for a relaxing place to enjoy the benefits of Southern California and rent an amazing house with terrific owners, this is the house for you! This house is perfect for a couple looking to enjoy time away, as well as a family looking for adventure in the Los Angeles area. Chris and Annette made this house a terrific place to vacation, I will definitely rent from them again when visiting Manhattan.
