The Space

*Please contact me before booking to check availability*


A warm, friendly welcome to this little beach paradise... Manhattan Beach is arguably the most enchanting beach city in the Santa Monica Bay, and one of the very safest neighborhoods in all of Los Angeles. (I lived in Santa Monica and Play del Rey previously.)

Minutes from LAX and a walk to Hermosa Beach... or drive (or bike) to Redondo Beach, Marina del Rey, Playa del Rey, Venice, Santa Monica, Torrance and Palos Verdes.

Take in views of the ocean from the apartment. Enjoy the fresh Pacific breezes. Stroll (less than half a block) down to the charming walking path (called The Strand) overlooking the beach and bay.

Skip down the steps and across a popular bike path to reward your feet with the warm soft sand of coveted Manhattan Beach!

You get: Cushy towels, fluffy bathrobes, a four drawer bureau and closet for your clothes, salon quality blow dryer, Q-tips, shampoo, conditioner, an ironing board and iron (in case you crease your bikini), spray on sunscreen, moisturizing lotion, a full kitchen with quality knives, spices galore, tea, coffee and staple cooking items, a toaster, a new gas barbeque grill, and washer/dryer in the unit.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Impeccable! Very clean tidy 2br, shared room, we were greeted with cider, fruits, cleanliness, and tons of surfboards. Very welcoming guy, and outgoing. Obvioisly experienced and very thoughtful execution of an airBnB host. Everything you would need is provided, beach toys/games, toiletries, and he even offered surf lessons. This is exactly what Airbnb is supposed to be in our eyes!

  • After a very long journey we were warmly welcomed by Andrew and made to feel at home immediately.

    The apartment was very clean and well equipped, very pleased with our stay and would recommend to anybody (and we already have!! ), we loved being so close to the beach and shops etc, will definitely be coming back.

    June 2014
  • Fantastic weekend! We loved the place and it's close proximity to the beach, bars, and entertainment. We had a lot to do, but Andrew was an amazing host and we felt totally comfortable coming and going whenever we needed. Just steps from the beach, you can literally hear the ocean from the bedroom. The room was great, very comfy bed and clean sheets, towels, large tv with great selection of free movies, and everything you could possibly need for a beach day! Andrew was a fantastic host and was able to give us great direction and insight to the area! We will be back soon and will definitely stay with Andrew again!!

    June 2014
  • Andrew was a very gracious host. I was only there for two nights but really enjoyed the experience. A great first time experience of Airbnb. I loved being so close to the beach and great cafe's and restuaurnts would love to go back.

    May 2014
  • Andrew was an excellent host and kind individual. He keeps the apartment very clean and tranquil and even provided snacks and beverages. The location is definitely hard to beat if you want to be both near Manhattan Beach stores/restaurants and the beach. I'd highly suggest coming here and would like to return again myself!

    May 2014
  • Andrew was a great host! We loved to location of the condo and were so impressed with his attention to detail. The bedroom and bathroom are an ideal setup. We would definitely stay here again!

    May 2014
  • We had a great time at Andrew's place. We even spent more time in his apartment than anywhere else in Los Angeles. The view of the sea from the living room is gorgeous! Even though the guest room has no sea view, you can still hear the soothing sound of the ocean clearly. The neighbourhood is very calm so we were able to sleep with the window open.

    The room and the bath were both clean and well equipped. The rooms are directly connected. If you are staying longer, you have more than enough storage space. There are some nice gadgets in the room like folding chairs for the beach and badminton rackets. The bed was very comfortable (but we are biased in this respect, as we have the same at home ;) ).

    Andrew is the perfect host! He prepared a tray with a bunch of bananas, chocolate, almonds and sparkling wine for us. When he heard that I am vegan, he even looked for a vegan chocolate.
    Andrew is the most inspiring person we met during our stay in the USA. He is a great person to talk to! We are thankful for all the advice he gave us and the great conversations. If you like meeting interesting people, you should definitely not miss Andrew!

    Andrew made us feel at home at his place. Thank you Andrew for letting us stay at your cosy home. We had a great time!

  • If you are looking for a fantastic spot to spend some time in Manhattan Beach, look no further, you have found it! Our time at Andrew's place was absolutely perfect and we enjoyed every detail of it. The apartment is great, very sunny, well decorated and furnished, and the guest bedroom/bathroom is extremely confortable and cosy. The location is unbeatable, a few steps away from the beach. Andrew is a fantastic host, such a warm and welcoming person, he will make you feel at home as soon you arrive. The tray of fruit, chocolate and assorted nuts and the bottle of bubbly on our bedside table was such a charming attention! We also had the opportunity to spend some time together and he is definitely someone we would love to see again in the future! So no hesitation guys, Andrew's place is everything you can possibly look for in MB!

    May 2014
  • all was great. Andrew is really nice and welcoming. I felt like I was at home. The bed was super comfy. Room has a private bathroom and all was super clean. I will stay with Andrew again.

  • Andrew is one of the most incredible persons I have ever met! He is not only a perfect host, but also a great personality.
    That was my first Airbnb experience and I cannot compare Andrew to anyone else, but I’m sure he would beat anyone). His friendly and warm attitude makes you feel absolutely home, as if you have lived there forever. Everything he does and says comes from his heart and you can definitely feel it.
    During my stay I even met his friends, he invited me to join him for dinner, we went out together and I couldn’t believe that someone whom you meet for the first time in your live can be so nice and good to you.
    He tried to help me in every possible way, give advice and try to understand what I need and how I feel.
    Andrew’s place at Manhattan Beach is now one of my favourite places in the world. I would love to come there back again!
    I wouldn’t even mention how clean and cozy it was, Andrew’s every-detail-counts attitude, small nice things that surround you and the great location!
    Andrew is also such an interesting person to talk to, his philosophy in life and his absolutely positive energy makes you feel inspired and admire him. Now I’m sure that every person can make this world better and Andrew is a great example and role model.
    If you are looking for a great location, a great host and want to experience incredible days in your live, this is more than the right choice!
    Thank you, Andrew!!!

Friendly and outgoing! I love meeting new people and I want you to feel welcome and at home here in Manhattan Beach paradise. Your holiday vacation time is precious and sacred. My ambition is for it to be delight-filled, rich, relaxing and memorable for you... and my intention in decorating and setting the space is that it bring peace of mind. I enjoy connecting and sharing with guests. It's one of my favorite aspects of AirBnB. You may also prefer just to keep to yourself and enjoy your vacation on your own. Please enjoy without obligation... I recently sold my business and started consulting as I consider my next venture. Life, friends, family, and surfing keep me busy and fulfilled. Travel and being outdoors are a huge love of mine. Trading ideas, learning, helping friends succeed, reading biographies, playing, cooking, meeting new people who love what they do, enjoying wine bars and cafes, and doing meaningful work are all important to me. I live in a charming beach town that I hope you'll love and return to again and again if you visit. I love music and playing guitar (though not too well) and singing. As a "professional guest" during my travels last year on AirBnB, I discovered that the details make all the difference. So I aspired to apply what I learned and create as wonderful and relaxing an experience as possible for you while you're my honored guest. Please tell me if there is anything I can do to make it better and I'll do my best to make it happen. Reach out if you have any questions... I look forward with anticipation to meeting you!
