About the property

Renovated 2 bedroom apartment is just steps from the beach with ocean views!

Fully renovated, this apartment is equally comfortable for a couples get-away or a family get-together. You can walk to all that North Manhattan Beach has to offer with fantastic bars and restaurants or simply walk down to the sand for a stroll on the Strand or some beach time.

Boasting views of the Pacific Ocean and El Porto beach, guests can slumber on two memory foam Queen Sized beds or lounge on a wraparound sectional as they watch the sunset. Full kitchen and 2 bathrooms complete your visit. Whether you want to get out and surf, sun and shop - or you'd prefer to just snooze...the Manhattan Beach Retreat is the perfect choice.

The El Porto area of Manhattan Beach dates back to its first subdivision in 1911. Although it is thought to mean "The Port" in Spanish, the name is actually a misspelling and translates "The I Carry." The Spanish word for port should have actually been spelled p-u-e-r-t-o. However, "porto" is the Portuguese word for "port," but its article is "O" instead of "El," which leads one to believe the origin of the name El Porto could have come from both Spanish and Portuguese influences.

Great Location, Close to the Beach

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was really close to the beach, was clean, and had convenient parking. The landlady made it extremely easy to rent and was quick to respond to my request for forks (there were none when we arrived). I was planning to cook Thanksgiving dinner and I will say that the apartment was not equipped for any significant cooking. The dishwasher was also broken and the kitchen was not equipped for handwashing of dishes. The beds were extremely comfortable and the sofa was also great for sleeping. There was no hairdryer or washcloths, so come with your own. The street had more traffic noise than we expected, but it was not a problem in the bedrooms. There wasn't enough lighting in the living room for reading at night, but the WiFi worked great. The balcony view was lovely. I guess you get what you pay for in Manhattan Beach!

cute beach rental - great location!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for about 6 weeks with my family of 4 while waiting for our new house to be completed in neighboring Hermosa Beach. The unit has everything you will need for your stay. The furniture is new, beds are comfy. The interior of the unit was clean but the outside of the building could use a good powerwash. It was a little tight for our family of four, but we were there for 6 weeks. Its a great place to stay for a week or 2. The owners were very responsive and accommodating. Location is very central to El Porto dining and of course, the beach is literally a 1 minute walk away.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our children over the summer and it was wonderful! The location was the best! We have stayed in the area before and we wanted to be very close to the beach but also be able to walk to the good restaurants in the area. Well, this rental delivered! The owners were very responsive from beginning to end. Highly recommend and we will be renting here again!

Manhattan Beach is known for its clean, wide, sandy beaches and attracts over 3.8 million visitors annually. CNN Money named Manhattan Beach #1 as the "2011 Best Places For the Rich and Single", while The Travel Channel named Manhattan Beach the 9th sexiest beach on earth for its 2008 "21 Sexiest Beaches" show. Manhattan Beach has also been nicknamed the "Pearl of the South Bay" for its beauty and desirability. "Downtown" Manhattan Beach, merely a few short miles down the coast, is considered the heart of the city. The area runs along Manhattan Beach Boulevard and the streets perpendicular to the Manhattan Beach Pier and Valley Drive. There are many Zagat rated casual-fine dining restaurants, specialty boutiques and retailers that create a pedestrian friendly, mixed-use downtown center.
