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.

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.

Family beach lovers

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful vacation in MB (including two teenagers 13 & 15). The home is well appointed with everything you need. Owners are responsive and helpful. Pictures don't do this home justice. The indoor and outdoor spaces are very comfortable with room to spread out. Location couldn't have been better near the beach, bike/walk trail and downtown restaurants/shops. We could have been happy all week just hanging at the house, walking/biking and playing at the beach. We did tear ourselves away on a couple occasions to visit some colleges and sightsee. Next time maybe we can just leave the car in the garage. We'll definitely be back.

220 Fourth Street in Manhattan Beach was a Delight!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at your lovely house and found it to be the perfect home-away-from-home. You the owners were very accommodating and quick to respond to one little problem with the dishwasher, in which was quickly remedied and working! We loved the way that your house was so fully stocked and the offer to help ourselves to the contents of the kitchen cabinets, such as spices, olive oil, etc...I had forgotten conditioner and felt panic over having to go to the drug store to buy some, but was comforted by the fact that the master bathroom had several different kinds. We also enjoyed using the nice Weber Grill out on the back patio and the outdoor tables and furniture, surrounded by beautiful landscaping and potted plants, which made us feel like we were home.

This is a perfect place for empty nesters and small families. Thank you so much, Jane and Terry for making us feel so welcomed!!

Fabulous Graduation week!

  • 5 of 5

Property was just as advertised! Location was perfect- sits between Manhattan Pier and Hermosa Pier. Had plenty of room for a party of 6 plus a few extra dinner guests! Front patio with a view of the beach made a perfect location for early morning breakfast/coffee or late evening dinner/cocktails! Sunsets were amazing!

Thank you Jane and Terry for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Perfect 'Home Away From Home'

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this wonderful luxury home, which we had the pleasure of staying at recently.

From our first contact with questions about renting ~ through our arrival and stay we were extremely pleased. The description of luxury oceanview home is perfect. As soon as you step onto the property you feel right at home with tasteful decor and high quality furnishings and appliances. Everything we needed was there...bikes for cruising 'The Strand'; gas grill; beach towels; a garage to park our car; great kitchen and plenty of space.

Sitting on the front patio or sitting on the front porch listening and watching the ocean was fantastic. And even better was the short walk to the beach. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your wonderful 'beach cottage'
