We (husband and kids in elementary school) live in a seperate house on the property. When you go down the side gate, past the house, past jacuzzi and magnolia tree you arrive at the guesthouse. Walk up the stairs and you have arrived. It's quiet and more residential, but a short walk/ride to the beach.
We share the backyard with the guesthouse. The guesthouse has its own little balcony with 2 lounge chairs, a small table and 2 chairs. When you walk down the stairs of the guesthouse, there's lots of fun stuff for you to do. We have an outdoor jacuzzi, a gas fire pit, a variety of skateboards, basketball hoop, rip sticks and a great big magnolia tree that you can climb to the top of.
We are here to help you if you need anything. We understand this is your vacation and just want want you to relax and enjoy your time here.
You know how sometimes you get in a cab and the driver keeps talking to you and you're thinking, I really need to call someone or concentrate on responding to an email/ text and he's not getting it?! I'm paying for a service and just want the ride...well, we don't want to be that cab driver. Text me if you need something, if you have some questions or have something to tell me, we'll hang out in the yard and laugh. It's easy breezy.
RESTAURANTS: No matter your age, taco Tuesday at OB's Bar and Grille is a must. Get a basket of peanuts, smash them on the table, eat them and throw the shells on the ground...my kids love it there, good burgers also. We walk to OB's from our house or bike it most of the time. Across the street from OB's is Pancho's Mexican restaurant, which has karaoke in the bar on Sunday nights. Fish bar (love the blackened fish tacos) is a couple blocks North. 4 Daughters, North End, Sloopy's & Local Yolk all have a great breakfast and are all next to each other.
SHOPPING: Trina Turk, Free People, Splendid, Sketchers, True Religion, Fresh Produce and all of the boutique stores are located on or around Manhattan Beach Blvd.
Head up Rosecrans ave, go left on Sepulveda and take your first right to find: Anthropology, BCBG, H&M, MAC, J Crew, Banana Republic, Lulu Lemon and BEBE.
GROCERY: Whole Foods, Fresh and Easy, Ralph's and Trader Joes are all close by.
We live in the tree section of Manhattan Beach. It's populated with families and is quiet.
A couple of California driving rules strictly enforced in Manhattan Beach:
If there is a crosswalk, slow down. If there is a person who looks like they are going to cross, stop. Let them cross. That is a big ticket if a cop sees you didn't let the pedestrian cross. Also, car pool lanes on the freeway - you cannot cross the double line to enter the carpool lane. Wait until the dotted line appears and enter. (And yes, we have received ticket(s) for that). Lastly, cell phones while driving. If you text, even at a stop light, it's a ticket. Being on your phone while driving is a ticket, although when I was pulled over, the officer told me the first time is a warning...
Cabs are prevalent and the way to go when you have been drinking. Yellow Cab
and South Bay Cab.
Below the guestouse is the garage where you will find boogie boards and surfboards.
We have bicycles for kids and adults, plus helmets. You can ride straight down Rosecrans Ave and before you hit the ocean you will see the bike path. Head north and you will ride along the ocean, riding through El Segundo, Playa Del Rey, Marina Del Rey, Venice Beach and Santa Monica. If you were to head south on your bicycle from Manhattan Beach you would ride through, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach and up the hill to Palos Verdes.
Some people think this is cool, Christopher knight (Peter Brady from the Brady bunch designed and built our house and guesthouse. He lived here for 9 years. Also, across the alley is the home THE DOORS rented when they were a new band. My neighbor said all she heard coming out of the garage was "light my fire". I love that.

We have been trying to go to LA twice a year since our daughter relocated there. We have always stayed at a hotel close to the water. This is our first time staying at an Airbnb property and we would definitely do it again. Beth's place was great…great location, close to airport and only 20 mins to our daughter in Culver City and in walking distance to "downtown" Manhattan Beach where there are plenty of fabulous restaurants. And of course close to the beach. Also it was a very "homey" and welcoming space. The studio offered plenty of privacy and space to just hang out with our daughter. It was also very well stocked, in case we forgot anything or got hungry in the middle of the night! Unfortunately we had rain for 3 of the 4 days we were there …so we didn't take advantage of all the "toys" or the hot tub. And one more benefit was having parking directly in front of property, something unheard of in LA!!!!
Would definitely recommend for your next stay in the LA area.
What an amazing place. My fiance and I had to find a place quickly when our landlord announced they were tearing out our bathroom on short notice. We found this guest house nearby and the place and our hosts were top notch. You have your own entrance, and it feels very homey. They have cable tv with all the channels, a great coffee maker, toaster oven, fridge, and it's even stocked with food and drink.
Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our dogs will miss the back yard and so much playtime.
Beth and her hospitality was great. Beth was generous in sharing sports equipment, bikes, scooters etc. The jacuzzi was a big bonus especially under the stars. It was about a 20/25 minute walk to Manhattan beach so we would walk down and then grab a cheap cab back at the end of the day. We would definitely stay here again.
This place was a great stay! Last minute and that was no problem. Great location, close to the beach, lots to enjoy around the house and some fun company in the yard. Gorgeous LA weather helps and the home is very comfortable. Communication was fast and easy. Thanks!
Great experience! In a super chill nice neighborhood. The suite had everything I needed. Overall a great place to stay.
This was such a treat for a quick getaway. Beth and her husband were extremely accommodating from the moment we booked. From the generosity with their surfboards, bikes, hot tub, etc., to the snacks and wine upon arrival, we truly felt at home and relaxed! The proximity to the airport and the quaint part of MB were perfect. Thanks for such a great stay! We will be recommending this to all our friends :)
Delightful, peaceful space with great resources, generous and gracious hosts.
This house had everything that one would need in Manhattan Beach! It is walking/biking distance to the ocean and close to great restaurants/cafes, yoga studios, and even a golf course! The apartment was clean, well stocked and Beth was graciously accommodating. We will be staying here upon our next visit to MB.
Couldn't have been happier with our stay here. Beth is a doll, the apartment is clean, spacious and bright.
Everything we needed was provided including a lovely bottle of wine! We borrowed the bikes and took The Strand all the way to Pacific Palisades.
We enjoyed relaxed privacy while there and look forward to a return soon. Thanks Beth!
We had a great time. Beth is a great host, she makes sure you feel like at home. She fulfilled the place with all necessary goodies you might need while your stay.
