Manhattan Beach has been voted one of the top places to live in America!
The neighborhood is so safe. SO safe. The Manhattan Beach Police are bored (shhhh....chasing barking dogs is a big at activity at night for them). But there are no Los Angeles gangs, no wild shoot outs, no dangerous people, no guns.
People who live in Manhattan Beach either grew up here or moved from colder areas and just want to have a simple, quiet beach fun life. Many of us like to say, "It's a place where no one has to gets old."
Strange that it is so close to Los Angeles, but worlds apart as far as the mind set of those calling Manhattan Beach their home. All the things you've heard about LA are in LA. Manhattan Beach is not LA. Some of the most kind and wonderful successful people call Manhattan Beach their home.
The creator and producer of "The Biggest Loser" JD Roth lives on my street right at the oceanfront. Writer Producer Danny Zucker of "Modern Family" and Vince Vaughn of "The Wedding Crashers" "The Break Up" and "Unfinished Business") are both in the neighborhood as well as MBS (Manhattan Beach Studios). A fully operating movie and television studio where James Cameron is currently filming his 2nd Avatar. We have 2 Starbucks, 2 Coffee Beans, Mama D's Restaurant, CPK California Pizza Kitchen, and a mall with all the tops favorites: Apple, Victoria Secret, Macy's, Gap, Sephora, Black & White and Chico's.
This small town of Manhattan Beach has been the backdrop for shows such as "Weeds" (Mary-Louise Parker), Aaron Spelling's "90210", "Starsky & Hutch" (Ben Stiller),
Mel Gibson's "Tequila Sunrise" and "Airborne", Betty White's "Off Their Rockers", "Point Break", CBS series "CSI", Fox Network series, "The O.C.", "Jerry Maguire" (Dorothy's (Renée Zellweger) house was on 23rd Street!) and "Hannah Montana" filmed at our Mira Costa High School.

Other Things to Note
We have two other rooms for rent, one is a girls room, double bed, another is bunk bed room that sleeps 4. Please send me a note for extra room pricing. I'm from Chicago and am very, very normal and very, very friendly.
The thought of renting a place in someone else's home, can feel...strange and well…just weird. However, I am not any of those. AND as I've said above, I'm so grateful God gave me such an amazing place to live! I'm beyond proud and excited to have guests experience what I get to live in every single day!
Hope you come and experience it as well!
This is a non smoking home.
Bella the dog. Multi-poo/Shitzu begs to be fed but don't do it. She will beg....and plead with her big brown eyes...just say "no."
Please no eating in any of the bedrooms...only in the kitchen or any of the outside patios. We don't have any ants and we don't want them.
Extra guests during the day are more than welcome...but overnight guests not on the original booking need to be noted and accounted through (website hidden).
If you sleep over on a Monday Night, please note TUESDAY's from 9am-11am is street sweeping and they ticket cars parked on the street cause the sweeper can't get in to clean. So either move your car or talk to me and I will help!
I really loved Laurie's place. Everything was exactly as described and the whole family are so nice - I felt very comfortable. That was easy due to Laurie's warm welcome! I can really recommend staying there :-)
Laurie and her family are amazing. A beautiful house in immaculate condition, with an extremely nice and genuine family. We got along great and had some great conversation. I would recommend Laurie to anyone, and would be honored to stay with them again
Laurie and her family are very lovely and welcoming hosts. We felt at home making food in the kitchen and watching a movie on the couch. Nice backyard to lounge in the sun. Really appreciated that all the water in the house was filtered so we enjoyed drinking and showering in clean water. Thank you for the wonderful stay.
Wir haben als Firma zum ersten Mal eine Buchung über AirBnB vorgenommen und waren am Anfang sehr skeptisch. Aber Laurie und Ihre Familie ist sehr herzlich und ich und mein Kollege haben uns direkt eingelebt. Laurie ist eine wundervolle Person und stets in Action. Unsere Zimmer waren perfekt und wir hatten genügend Platz. Wir konnten die riesige Kueche nutzen und unsere Vorraete in Ihrem Kuehlschrank unterbringen. Die Unterkunft kann an keinem besseren Platz sein. In einer Sackgasse und dadurch auch sehr ruhig gelegen waren wir dennoch sehr Nahe an Hermosa und Manhatten Beach gelegen und haben konnten somit auch preiswert unsere täglichen Ausfluege durchführen koennen. Es ist jetzt bereits sicher: I will be back.
Thomas! I can't read what you wrote but I know it's good because you said so before you left! Thanks for bringing your guest and thanks for being so wonderful! I look forward to one day meeting your wife and little one! Come back again soon! Good luck with the work endeavors. I can see why all your customers like you!
Laurie and Bred are very kindful and helpful. Thet offered us comfortable room and service. And given us useful informations. It's a wonderful trip!!! We holp to see you again!!!
Laurie and her sweet family were fantastic hosts and accommodated us last-minute. The room was clean, quiet and had everything we needed (including a great closet!). The bed was soooo comfortable, the shower was to die for. This neighborhood was also extremely safe, walkable and conveniently located. Thanks so much for everything Laurie! We would definitely stay here again.
Laurie and he's husband were fantastic hosts! From the minute I stepped in I felt like part of the family. Very communicative, answered all my questions, adapted to my needs, just great. They really have put an effort into making their home available and nice for all types of travelers, wether you're on vacation, a beach lover, or in business. The room is big, and the bed is heaven! And the shower, wow, it all feels like you're in a luxury hotel room next to their lives. Short, but excellent stay. I would definitely recommend, and I would definitely stay again!
