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 Sand Section

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 Place to Relax and Refuel!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit here in the fall of 2017! Very easy drive from LAX. Enjoyed the short walk to the beach and downtown MB shops--Peet's Coffee is awesome. Great shops and the corner bakery with the macaroons was YUM! The house had everything that we needed and was very comfortable. The owners are wonderful. This is a repeat visit in the near future.

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

We loved rhe property and the location. Easy to get to from the airport and easy to walk to several restaurants and the beach. We booked relatively last minute and the manager Kristen was very quick to respond and so accommodating. The owners leave their phone number and are quick to answer any questions. We would love to stay there again!!

Close to everything! Great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this home..we felt like it was our home. Great views of the beach. It was close to Universal Studios, the Hollywood sign and walk of fame, Venice Beach and the Getty.

There was not one thing missing ...they have bikes, barbecue, beach wagon, games, etc.

Thanks for allowing us to stay,

Jim and Cristin Harvey, Foster and Hannah

Great place to stay in MB

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience staying in MB! We have kids ages 9 and 7- the location was perfect for walking to the beach and an easy walk into town for food, shops, etc. The house was quaint and cozy- everything clean and comfortable. Plenty of beach toys, chairs, boogie boards and bikes to use. We will definitely come back! Thank you.

Perfect location, great house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the beach cottage with our 9 and 6 year old. The location was perfect - walkie talkies worked from the ocean to living room and it was a quick 2 minute walk down a walk street to the beach. We didn't need a car and rode our bikes a mile and half up the strand to surf camp, and walked (kids biked/scooted/skateboarded) up to the pier /main street which has tons of amazing restaurants. Very helpful to have everything provided both in the kitchen (as we did a combination of cooking and eating out) and for the beach (bikes/chairs/boogie boards/sand toys/beach towels). The owners are very responsive and also helped us find great babysitters.

We love the location and the garage

  • 4 of 5

As much as we enjoy there we're a few maintainence items plus the noise Tuesday from the concrete trucks next door and the hammering etal across them street convinced us to to depart one night early

I think you were remiss in not noting the construction issue prior to our committing to this unit while there were still other options available

Owner's Response: Dear Alan, I am so sorry you were not notified earlier. We have tried to keep track of the construction but it sat there for 8 weeks and they did not know when it would start up again. We even asked the city but they were not sure. I wish you would have notified us right away that there was a problem. We like to do something for guests to compensate them if there is a situation beyond our control. We live near by and can fix anything brought to our attention. We will make it up to you now. Thanks, Jane Reitz
