The Prince Jewel of the Beach House is the incredible 180 degree Ocean View Deck that spans across the entire house with views from Malibu to Palos Verdes, taking in the Island of Catalina, Manhattan Beach Pier, Sunsets to Die for and often dolphins playing in the surf line.

Always trying to keep the house fresh and comfortable for all our guests.

About Lorie O'Connor

We are both real estate Brokers. My wife and I are using our personal home as a vacation rental so that we may travel. We are both native Californians, with 4 children. We love to live by the ocean and we are certain if you love the ocean, you will enjoy a visit to the town of Manhattan Beach. We have been residents of our community for over 40 years, I am, in reality, a beachy guy with a vintage (1960) Greg Knoll surfboard and a very casual outlook on life. My Wife is Italian, a great cook and an excellent realtor. We are intimately aware of all things in our home town and we can guide you to the best restaurants, best bargains and any theme park or activity California has to offer (we raised our children here). We will insure your comfort in our casual, beachy home. Sincerely, Dwight and Lorie

Lorie O'Connor purchased this house in 2004

Why Lorie O'Connor chose Manhattan Beach

This property has one of the best views in town. Really! Some people says it better than the strand because its up high and away from people walking by.

You can see from Palos Verdes to Malibu on a clear day. Plus you can see both Hermosa and Manhattan Piers.

What makes this house unique

Our home is one and a half blocks to the beach, a short walk to downtown restaurants, bars or grills with many choices of cuisines to suit your taste or budget, from up scale to causal coffee shop dining. For active outdoor people the Strand or board walk is also very close, which has bike riding, jogging or just plain walking. Beach activities are available on one of the largest, cleanest, sandy beaches in California, a delight for swimming, surfing and just plain resting and reading your favorite book.

This house feels like you are right on the beach when all the glass doors are open!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfectly appointed for a week at the beach. The kitchen is large and well equipped and the garage has beach gear and bicycles!

The location is just a few blocks from grocery, shopping and restaurants but quiet residential neighbors. Manhattan Beach is the best beach in CA and this house is the perfect place to stay!

Amazing as always!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying here and we absolutely loved our stay!! We were lucky enough to be there for nearly a month and the house is absolutely perfect. The location is A+. It is so close to everything and we walked everywhere. The top floor was once again our favorite. The view is incredible and the kitchen is amazing...it made cooking and entertaining so much more fun. Thanks for opening up your beautiful home...we hope to return again next summer. Counting the days.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many homes in Manhattan Beach, and this was our favorite. Short walk to the beach and into town. The views of the ocean were better than the pictures. The house is very warm and inviting. Everything you need for a relaxing vacation!!

Best location and View in Manhattan Beach

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time back to this property. We love it so much we already booked it for next year! The location is ideal for Manhattan Beach. Walking distance to absolutely everything in this town. It is professionally managed, very clean, and homey. But words cannot explain the view of the gorgeous ocean and pier. It is as if you are on a cruise ship. If you want to live the beach life in Manhattan Beach, you cannot find a better property. We will be staying here for years to come!

Fabulous beach vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at this home! The mermaids scattered throughout were a cute touch and there was a beachy feel the moment you arrive. This home had top of the line kitchen appliances and updated bathrooms with a steam shower in the master! The home was well equipped with everything you could need for a beach vacation. The view from the upper level was stunning and there were sliding doors on the top floor that opened up all the way across the room to truly bring the outdoors in! There were beach cruisers that we used to ride down the strand to Hermosa. This property is also within short walking distance to town. The home was very clean and well laid out. I would definitely recommend staying at this lovely home!!!!
