About Dr David Lesman

I was born in New York city to two wonderful human beings I've been blessed to call my mother and father. I lived in NY most of my life until I moved to CA to attend medical school.

I won a Bronze medal in the Junior Olympics, for cycling at 14 years of age.

I received a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology from City University of New York and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Doctorate while attending university in Los Angeles.

I founded Motion Picture Chiropractic, serving the film and TV community throughout Los Angeles California with mobile offices covering all the Major Film and TV sets. I was asked to expand to treat Olympic players, as well as Major League Football, Tennis, and Track and Field players.

I opened California Chiropractic Centers throughout Southern California, and Fitness Chiropractic in the major gyms throughout California.

I started The American Chiropractic Council and Camber Chiropractic to standardize the practice and procedures in Chiropractic.

At a young age I realized that the things I wanted in life would not come from anyone but myself. I decided to take my destiny into my own hands. I believe because of my philosophy of life, I've been able to successfully predict trends in the world of international business, sales, products, and real estate.

This beautiful blue glass house is one of my most prized possessions and I'm honored to have the opportunity to share the appreciation of it with those who choose to rent from me.

Why Dr David Lesman chose Manhattan Beach

Since I was a child I've been fascinated by the art of creating and building. It was a dream of mine to one day build and construct a beautiful one-of-a-kind house. I began very early in my life studying architecture. I have always appreciated the magnificence of abstract design that test the trends and challenge modern day styles.

I was able to begin turning my dream into a reality when I purchased this lot. One of the most treasured memories and experiences of my life was having the opportunity to share the creation process of this magnificent house with my late father.

With this timeless, multiple award winning property, I was able to create an environment for myself unlike any other. I wanted to be completely exposed to the beauty of the ocean all day and all night. I have a deep love of the ocean and never wanted to miss a thing...hence the house being 85% GLASS! :) I also made sure the house could be transformed from panoramic views into complete privacy at the push of a button.

Throughout the years, all my guests consistently praise the homes loving and warm energy. The ambiance and modern design truly brings couples and families together in extraordinary ways.

If you're seeking a one-of-a-kind house for a one-of-a kind-experience, this is the house for you. My guests continuously express their wish to one day have the opportunity to come back and continue their experience where they left off.

What makes this house unique

The most unique benefit is having a glimpse into a luxurious lifestyle by having a taste of "The Jewel by the Sea". This is my private residence and not an intended investment property for renting. Everything is new and up to date. I have very high-end friends and business partners who visit me often, so the property reflects the expensive taste I enjoy.

We'll Always Have The Glass House

  • 5 of 5

I have always loved the beach, ever since I was a small child. The waves somehow soothe beyond any lullaby, the wind clears the mind of stress, and the sun kissing your face warms and calms you to the soul... What a place to renew yourself and find hope and love again.

My hubby J (who is a workaholic) and I honestly had been on the rocks... With his schedule and mine, it was hard to connect and spend the time together that is essential to a relationship. So we decided that we needed to get away, to get some valuable time to ourselves where we could relax and truly enjoy each other again. Enter the Glass House...

From the moment we booked it for our romantic little retreat it was a pleasure. David (the homeowner) was very quick and efficient with getting us in on the dates we wanted and sending all the paperwork over. When we got to this amazing house, we were shown around and any questions were explained. (There were a lot of high tech features and nice appliances I was glad to be told how to use, like a sweet little jacuzzi you can watch the beach goers from). Also almost all the huge sliding doors open fully and you can get all the air and light you want. The house is RIGHT on the beach, and taking full advantage of that fact J and I started our vacation right then and there, spreading a blanket on the sand and breathed in that amazing ocean air! Wow, it truly felt good. There are also a lot of amazing shops and cute stores right within walking distance, we took full advantage of lunches, romantic dinners (no phones allowed!), and shopping together. There is also a garage available to park in if you drive down like we did. And at night.... wellll... we cuddled on the beach and watched the amazing sunsets over the pier, only going inside when it got too chilly on the sand. There, held in my man's arms in front of the fireplace, we connected again.

After that weekend that ended too soon, things are better for us. Sometimes that's what you need, a beautiful time in a beautiful place, away from your everyday life. And every time I see my beau now, I think about the experience we had, the bonding that happened, the relaxing and finding ourselves again. I rediscovered the man I fell in love with.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart David.

We will DEFINITELY be coming back.

Absolutely Unbelievable experience!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a specific location near the water so my wife and kids could enjoy the sun and beach till their hearts content. I found this property and thought, “This is perfect!” Little did I know how perfect my escape with my family would be staying at this award winning architectural beauty.

At first, I was taken back at how genuine, over the top accommodating and hospitable the owner was upon our arrival. The kids loved him too, which told me everything I needed to know. Thank you again for that Dr.! The kids still talk about you, your house and how comfortable they felt living inside your home.

We all enjoyed every second of our vacation thanks to this property. I can’t say enough good things about the magnificent home, convenient location and loving service provided by the owner. Parking would have been extremely challenging if the owner hadn’t already calculated for what I hadn’t even thought about when renting a home SO close to the water.

Manhattan Beach is an amazing place. Restaurants, shopping, activities for both adults and kids are all within walking distance from this “Glass House”.

I look forward to coming back in the future and have already recommended this VRBO location and listing to many of my friends and family who are looking to truly escape into a dimension where time and stress stops and all that exists is the beauty of the people you love and the oceanic atmosphere that envelops you.
