Description

The Space

The 3rd floor of our family home is filled with natural light and has a wonderful, ocean view deck. The room has a sitting area, TV, wet bar, bathroom and full size futon bed. Adjacent to the deck is a separate room fitted with a small refrigerator, microwave, single beverage maker and two twin beds. The main room has a privacy screen, but not a door, separating it from the rest of the home.

Relax in the casual comfort of our family's home, enjoying exclusive use of our entire open plan 3rd floor. The guest "Retreat" is filled with light through large windows and a full wall glass door that opens to an ocean view deck and adjoining room. There is also a smaller mountain view deck with a bistro set for you to enjoy sunrise or morning coffee.

Manhattan Beach is home to great beach volleyball and surfing. We have outstanding community events year-round such as Concerts in the Park, the International Surf Festival, the Chevron Grand Prix, Manhattan Beach Open Volleyball Tournament, the Old Hometown Fair, Sketchers Pumpkin Races and the Annual Holiday Fireworks just to name a few.

We are on a family focused, residential cul de sac, just a short walk to the beach as well as local shops, spas, eateries and hot night spots. We are also immediately adjacent to a unique park that is great for walking, stair climbing or bird watching. Ours is a very unique area of town.

The space we offer to you is our third floor, which is a most wonderful, sunlight filled, open space! We can very comfortably accommodate 4 adult-sized individuals. We have one full size bed in the main room, and a twin daybed with a twin trundle in a separate but adjacent room. This separate room is accessed by crossing the exterior deck.

The main third Floor Retreat features:
* full size [futon] bed - comfortably sleeps two
* sitting area
* eating area
* fireplace
* large screen TV with over 250 channels
* wireless internet
* wet bar
* ocean view deck with table and chairs

The adjacent, but separate, room, is attached to the ocean view deck (not directly to the main 3rd floor area) features:
* a twin size day bed with a twin size trundle,
* a sitting area
* large desk/work space
* a mini frig, microwave and single beverage maker.

Your Retreat bath includes:
* oversize shower

The third floor is kept separate from the rest of the house by a dog gate, so that our three dogs don't pay you an unexpected visit, as well as a solid wood partition to enhance your feeling of privacy.

* surf board
* boogie board
* beach chairs

If arriving by car, we are very easy to find from the freeway, and street parking is available on both sides of the street immediately in front of our house.

If arriving from LAX International Airport, and not renting a car, we suggest taking a cab as it is less expensive than the Super Shuttle type services.

Public transportation is easily accessible.

We are a very casual and active beach/sports family. We have three medium size dogs! At times they can be raucous!

During the summer months all four of our children are at home, which means lots of comings and goings, playing of video games or watching movies/TV. Come mid August three of the four head off to college and the house is decidedly quieter. Our youngest child is a wonderful young boy who is non-verbal and has very special needs. He always enjoys meeting new guests! When he is not in school he is attended to daily, Monday-Friday, by his most wonderful nurse/caregiver, who is a member of our extended family.

Don't forget, we have three, indoor, dogs!! They are ages 10, 6 and 4. Check out their photo! All three are rescue dogs. The slight blonde is the youngest and is our guard dog. She will bark whenever you come or go and can be rather intimidating. Respect her role and she will respect you as well. The brindle is our oldest, and she can be a bit loud when people come to the gate. The Siberian Husky does not bark. She just loves attention!

As for what to see and do in our area, well there is no shortage of sites and activities! We are just 5 miles south of LAX and just 3 miles from the 405/San Diego Freeway, with easy access to all that LA has to offer! Relax at the beach and enjoy our casual beach town or hit the road to explore!

Cruise the coast along Vista del Mar north to Marina del Rey [8 miles], then continue north through Venice Beach, home of Muscle Beach and the fabulous Abbott-Kinney Blvd [10 miles], to the Santa Monica Pier - the iconic end of Route 66 and home of Pacific Park - [12 miles]. Continue north on PCH past the spectacular Getty Villa [16 miles] to the Malibu Pier [22 miles].

Head south down PCH through the South Bay beach towns of Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach and head up to the Palos Verdes Peninsula to the world famous Terranea Resort and Spa [15 miles] or continue on to Trump National Golf Course [22 miles].

Cruise up the 405 Freeway to the Westside to UCLA , Westwood Village and Beverly Hills [18 miles] or carry on into the Sepulveda Pass to the Getty Museum [20 miles], or all the way through the Valley to Santa Clarita home to Magic Mountain and Hurricane Harbor [45 miles].

A bit more inland, up the 110 Freeway you will pass USC and the Coliseum on your way to Staples Center and LA Live [18 miles], home to Stanley Cup Champions LA Kings, as well as the LA Lakers, LA Clippers and the Nokia Theatre. Downtown is also home to a great Fashion/Garment/Jewelry District. Continue through the downtown slot past Dodger Stadium [22 miles], to Griffith Park [28 miles] where you can explore the stars at the Griffith Observatory or hike to the famous Hollywood sign. Burbank and the Burbank Studios, the LA Equestrian Center and Universal Studios are just a few miles further north. If you take the 101 Freeway north from downtown you will be heading towards Hollywood - the Chinese Theatre, Hollywood Blvd Walk of Fame and Capital Records are just a few of the sights to see in Hollywood [25 miles].

Disneyland, California Adventure and Knotts Berry Farm are an easy 35 freeway miles to the south east! Ask us about SoCal discounts.
