About Kristen

The owners, Jane and Terry, have been Manhattan locals for 30 years. They live nearby and can offer advice, information and personal attention during your stay at the Beach Cottage.

Kristen purchased this house in 1995

Why Kristen chose Manhattan Beach

Our family purchased our beach cottage to enjoy the unique small town environment of Manhattan Beach….Manhattan is only twenty minutes from downtown Los Angeles and ten minutes from LAX but a million miles away from the tempo of the big city. Now that our children are grown we have the opportunity to share our second home with others.

What makes this house unique

The Cottage is located on a quiet residential walk street two short blocks from the sand, water, strand and v-ball courts. It is a quick walk to MB Pier, restaurants, Farmer's Market (Tues. 11-5), The Plaza, and several grocery stores (Vons on MB Blvd and Boccato's on Highland and Longfellow). We are 15 mins from LAX, and 40 minutes from Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm.

If Christmas is a travel time for you, don't miss viewing the amazing Manhattan Beach fireworks show from our balcony or from the beach sand.

Wonderful stay in Manhattan Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Beach Cottage. The house is definitely even nicer than it looks online. After a long flight from Europe with 3 children, one of them still a baby, it was very pleasant to arrive at a very clean, cozy, real home. The owners left fruit, milk and cereals, which was very convenient after such a long journey. The house was supplied with everything we needed and it all worked properly. The house has a wonderful atmosphere, making you feel at home. The location is awesome, although I already knew that for having lived close by, several years ago. The owners, Jane and Terry were always available, very friendly, and answered all our questions very rapidly. We certainly want to come back in the near future.

Manhattan Beach House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed at the beach house. Stunning home, ocean view, short walk to the pier for eating and shopping. Beautiful patio to enjoy listening to the waves, eating, drinking, and socializing. Spacious place for children or family friends. Big kitchen with high-end appliances to cook any meal you like. House comes with everything you need for the beach: towels, chairs, coolers, boogie boards, beach cruises/bikes. Plenty of books, games, and movies if you'd like to relax and stay in for the day/night. Lastly, they had heard I had surgery a week prior to our stay and left me flowers. Very sweet and generous. We highly recommend this place.

Great for families or anyone that likes the beach

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home from the 27th of December to the 3rd of January and had a great time with our young family. My 18 month old loved that he could walk around and we loved that there were no stairs to worry about! Everything was very clean (immaculate fridge, counters, cutlery etc) and organized and we never struggled to find anything we could have needed. There were toys for the kids for the beach and loads of towels and chairs. We simply packed up and walked down and could have 30 min or 3 hours at the beach without issue. The beds were awesome – comfortable and big! The bathrooms were perfect for us. The guest bathroom was great for bathing young kids and the master en suite had a great shower with amazing water pressure. (These things matter on vacation!)

The location is really the best part though. You can't really top a spot where you could open the front door, tilt your head ever so slightly to the left and catch a gorgeous west coast sunset every evening. Of course there is furniture outside if you want to watch it seated, with a book, and a glass of wine. I preferred to do it with a 4 year old on my shoulders and an 18 month old in my arms and my wife at my side. It was so great being able to share the beauty of California with our kids so easily.

We did the walk down the Strand to Manhattan Beach Blvd just about every day and could walk to breakfast or dinner as we pleased with lots of great dining less than 1km away. Our rental car company didn’t hold our reservation when our arrival flight was delayed, but once we got to the house, we considered not getting a car at all except for a trip to Disneyland with the kids. You really wouldn’t need one if all you want to do is go for strolls and relax. The grocery store is a $4 Uber away and even going to Wholefoods a bit further only cost me about $12US return with about 5 full shopping bags – we were set for the week!

The neighbours on both sides were very nice and loaned us some tools for an afternoon. Others we bumped into were very sweet to the kids. It has a great community feel.

Jane was great - whenever we needed anything, she responded immediately. We didn't need much so I feel like we hardly tested her - but I know she would have come through based on her great response time for the couple menial questions I did have.

We would love to go back.

Great family beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves staying in the beach cottage. We are a family of four (two under the age of 5) and the house was perfect for us.

Close to the beach and piers, plenty of space for the family, and great views of the ocean. We will be staying again.
