Sand Section Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Manhattan Beach is one of the most charming towns in the US, and you will be able to walk to all of it. This newly remodeled very spacious apartment is a 3 minute walk to the beach, incredible restaurants, grocery shopping, boutiques and the fabulous MB Creamery. You will park your car and never want to leave. Sun comes in throughout the day. New hardwoods and a newly remodeled bathroom will be having you call your friends to tell them about the steal you found in Manhattan Beach. New living room furniture and brand new high-end beds were purchased in November 2014. This is not a home we live in and move out of whenever it's reserved. It is strictly a vacation home, and designed specifically to be a great destination.

You will have a coveted parking spot right in town (PLEASE NOTE - A LARGE SUV WILL NOT FIT IN THE PARKING SPOT) There is also a brand new (2015) washer/dryer and new (2015) Bosch dishwasher. Fios TV and the internet will meet all your technology needs. We have boogy boards, beach towels and even umbrellas.

This is an apartment to relax in, either with friends or your family. Absolutely no parties whatsoever, or loud noise. Please respect the neighbors.

Note that the unit is on a second story and that it is not handicapped or wheelchair accessible.

Check in is 4pm and check-out is 11am. Key-less entry with an individual code for each guest for optimal safety.

Feel free to email with any questions...but please check the calendar for availability before you e:mail! Also, we do not accept personal/cashiers checks or wire transfers of any kind. Should someone request that from you for our listing, it is a scam. Many thanks! Allisen

Relaxing and perfect for family

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was spacious and well-stocked for our family of four. The kitchen had lots of great supplies to make coffee, salad etc. and the beach chairs, umbrella and toys were very nice to have. The apartment is very clean and well appointed. The walk to the beach is quick and pleasant through pretty gardens and charming houses. The walk to the shops and restaurants including wonderful gelato was fun and we didn't need a car at all. A very relaxing stay.

Having enjoyed two, 2-month stays in this property, I'm giving it the highest recommendation imaginable.

This was my second, 2-month stay at this property. I wish I could have stayed forever. The first thing you notice when you walk in is that the entire apartment, every corner, is remarkably crisp and clean. I saw how Allisen's housekeeper cleans and I have NEVER seen someone clean so thoroughly.

I digress ... this is a charming apartment that has the feel of a beach cottage. It is very well equipped in the kitchen and has countless, subtle amenities throughout. There are ceiling fans in every room. Because there is cross-ventilation, when you open windows, a lovely cool, breeze wafts through the rooms.

There is free internet access which is very reliable.

Also, a DVR which can record up to 5 programs at a time .... nice feature!

The manager is excellent. She's always only a phone call away and is responsible to any request. She always greets the request with a positive attitude and was a delight. Having her so accessible was very helpful.

Allisen is very accommodating. I had several email exchanges with her and she was always thoughtful and understanding.

Oh, and the Location is fabulous. I got very spoiled because main street is only 2 blocks away. Close enough to walk, but far enough away so you don't hear the traffic. Von's is a very nice grocery market that's barely 3 blocks away. Not only is it convenient for groceries, their floral department is surprisingly good, and reasonable. I purchased orchids each time I was there and they lasted and bloomed for the entire time. I needed a bouquet for a dance recital and they took an order and had it waiting for me at 8 am the following day.

I initially dismissed even viewing this because of the mention of stairs because I have a back injury. However, the stairs were never an issue. They are carpeted, and each step is low, so little effort is required.

I think/hope you gather, this was an exceptional experience. If you're fortunate, and this property is available for you, don't give a second thought. If you don't book it, someone else will.

A Jewel home-away-from-home

  • 5 of 5

This property is exceptional. The apartment itself is pristine. It is very well-equipped so you can walk right in and begin your vacation.

The owners have thought of many, surprising, small details ... there are multi-outlet electrical plugs located at every room where you might want to use or charge your electronics. And, boutique tissue boxes in lovely covers, placed throughout the aprtment. The owners have created an inviting home-away-from home, including various pieces of artwork that add to the ambience that makes it very welcoming.

The Manager is very attentive and is quickly contacted by phone or text. She will respond to your needs very promptly.

I feel I need to mention the stairs. I had initially dismissed the listing because the description mentioned it was on the second floor and stairs can sometimes be challenging for me. However, the stairs are Very Easy to climb. I was there for 2 months and the stairs were Never an issue for me. They are shallow and carpeted, with a handrail, and not challenging. I would not let the second floor location keep you from considering this property.

And, the fabulous location. Your lovely view from the kitchen window is the main street which is 1 1/2 blocks away. This has the definite feel of a beach community so the view of the center of town is charming. Enjoying the morning breeze waft through the open kitchen window is beyond lovely.

This apartment is so wonderful that I already have several reservations for multi-month stays well into 2017. If I could have, I would have stayed longer than the 2 months that I had reserved.

Thank you, Thank you, Allisen.

We could not have asked for anything more. This house was truly amazing and we hope to go back soon

  • 5 of 5

This house is a quick walk to the beach, restaurants and all other shops in Manhattan Beach. Very spacious & accommodating and Allisen was a pleasure to work with. The house itself is very clean and has everything you need to make yourself feel at home. We will definitely be returning to this location when we go back to visit Manhattan Beach.

Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

This rental apartment totally exceeded our expectations. It was larger and nicer than we thought from the pictures. The furniture and accommodations are new and up-to-date and the location can't be beat. We enjoyed walking to downtown MB for coffee every day. Allisen was so wonderful to work with. Can't wait to return!!
