Perks for the Parents

This fun, vintage-styled beach house is a short walk from Manhattan Beach and includes a lovely front porch and a back yard strung with lights plus plenty of beach toys and kit for easy days at the beach. Downtown Manhattan Beach is full of great restaurants and shopping: the property’s owner is a stylist and food fanatic and can suggest the best shopping and eating spots both in Manhattan Beach and greater LA. In addition to the 2 bedrooms, there is a back room with a desk in case a parent needs to get some work done.

Why Kids Love it

The front patio has ocean views and includes comfortable oversized lounge furniture where parents can enjoy watching kids play in the walk street (cars are not allowed to drive on the street). The house is just blocks to the beach and is fully stocked with boogie boards and beach toys. The beach has attentive lifeguards, It is a short walk to local playgrounds and trails. The nursery is peaceful and stocked with a crib; baby care items including a high chair, toys, Puj bath, strollers, pack-n-play and any other baby/toddler necessities can be provided on request.

About the Location

The residence is in a central Manhattan Beach location. The beach itself is a short walk down the hill with Manhattan Beach pier and downtown a 10-15 minute walk from the house. Car rental is useful in this location but uber is also very reliable for getting around. Manhattan Beach is a family-friendly coastal city around 30 minutes west of Los Angeles with a laid back atmosphere. The closest major airport is LAX, around 20 minutes’ drive away.

Style Notes

Bright, fun and beachy. This 1950's cottage reflects the laid back vibe of the neighborhood, with eclectic wall art, hardwood floors and comfy couches. A vintage fireplace and built-in window seating around the dining table are other notable touches. We love the ocean view from the front patio, the gallery walls and the quirky touches throughout.

we are a new family of 3 and life is sure fun! we love where we live and walk to the beach most weekends. We also love exploring this crazy, wonderful city, Los Angeles! Our favorite spot to travel is Stockholm but Greece is pretty amazing too. We joined kid&Co because we are using it more and more ourselves and LOVE it.

We loved this home. It was perfectly cozy for our family of three, well-equipped with everything you need. The location is ideal- a pleasant walk away from the beach and a pedestrian street safe for kids. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Thank you so much to the wonderful Wiginton Family for our perfect stay in Lost Angeles ! Their home has so much style and comfort ... the beds, even the inflatable, were perfect and clean, toys a plenty for our littles, and a very easy stroll down the street to a most wonderful beach. Also, this location was close to LAX, as well as a nice shopping center with a Whole Foods and restaurants (not to mention walking distance to the cute downtown Manhattan Beach area). We can't wait to come stay again.

We loved our stay at this little blue house! Brad and Cassie offered us everything we needed for our stay with our 9 month old baby. They were so responsive and helpful throughout our entire stay. It was so nice to travel light for once. It really felt like a home away from home. You can see the ocean from the front porch, and everything in the area is very walkable. Since our baby goes to bed early it was so great to make dinner and hang out in a well designed happy home. We will definitely come back here!

Manhattan Beach, Los Angeles

Classic Californian fun

Around 20 miles from Los Angeles, just north of Redondo Beach, it has a sandy beach popular with surfers, sunbathers and volleyball players, plus fantastic shopping, a free aquarium and plentiful family activities. Play in parks, playgrounds and a 100-ft sand dune park, hire bikes and cycle The Strand, or visit the downtown farmer’s market on a Tuesday.
