Property description


Escape to a tropical Balinese paradise 50 steps to the ocean on the exclusive Marina Del Rey Peninsula. Adjacent to Venice Beach, this four-level beach home getaway is furnished with original Balinese pieces, contributing to the space's overall zen-like atmosphere. The sleek architecture encompasses strong plains, sleek lines, and articulated forms to create a unique interplay of light and air. 45-foot beam wrapped in Balinese stone towers through all four levels of this tropical paradise and is the backdrop of an open skylight, which cuts through each level and is outlined with curved walls. Natural materials are employed and the combination of wood and stone with fabrics such as silk and linen contributes warmth and texture to the rooms. Embellished with beautiful original artwork from around the world, focusing on East Asia and South America.


The grand entrance of this four-story beach home welcomes visitors into a lavish guest suite.
This suite comes equipped with contemporary custom daybed and a plethora of silk and suede fabricated pillows sprawled about with room for additional bedding. The highlight of this floor is the back wall of sliding glass doors which disappear and reveal outdoor access to a beautiful tropical garden. The perfect rectangular shape of this space is intercepted with a beautiful curve of what makes up the first floor lavatory, all-embraced with original glass mosaics from Italy, Turkish limestone, exotic Japanese wood, Balinese stone, and a waterfall rain shower.

This floor designed especially for a home-theatre experience, comes fully equipped with entertainment center comprising of a 42-inch plasma tv, dvd player, surround sound, multi-disc stereo system, and satellite radio.


Walnut steps, lined with lustrous glass panels, make up the flight of floating stairs that lift you to the second floor main living and dining area. Experience the grandeur of a seaside lifestyle with clear glass walls and expansive skylights that illuminate this sphere with soft natural sunlight. The transparency of this architectural breaking element not only allows light to enter but affords a rare sky view from the internal mezzanine situated directly below. Elevated vaulted glass ceiling soaring over 20 feet high adds to this breath-taking affair, while simplistic décor produced by the combination of modern architecture, antique furniture, and primitive objects is refined yet comfortable. Glass walls open up to reveal a private balcony sitting amongst the trees and overlooking the garden below, creating an indoor-outdoor effect.

A state-of-the-art modern kitchen comes equipped with Viking appliances and Caesar stone countertops. An expansive rectangular floating island compliments the repeated theme of parallel lines in this space. A grandiose dining table hosts six people luxuriously with comfortable leather seats. Nearby is a spectacular modern Balinese wood-burning fireplace. Two large contemporary sofas ideal for lounging surround a 10-foot long teak coffee table, which acts as the focal point of the room. Yet another entertainment center
including a 42-inch plasma tv, dvd, satellite and surround sound system offer additional entertaining.

A stunning powder room with a sweeping stone mosaic wall and Balinese fixtures complete this floor.


Continue up the stairs and stumble upon an incredible hand-carved Balinese wooden door that guards the master bedroom suite. King-size bed oriented in the center of the room, and meticulously placed furnishings create sharp angles and interesting composition. The deliberate color palette amongst the curved walls and deep dark undertones in the furniture begets relaxation and tranquility for easy rest. This loft-style suite overlooks the main living area with a 180-degree scene of the skylight view. Master bathroom is free from enclosure and also provides a bird's eye view into the main living area.


Yet another climactic trip up the last flight of stairs reveals a
grand landing area that leads you out to the intimate sky lounge.
Private rooftop access with picturesque views overlooking the Marina
Canal and Pacific Ocean adds an element of chic relaxed luxury to this island getaway experience. Relax above the trees and enjoy the scenic beauty. Featuring an outstanding authentic Balinese cabana that frames a king-size bed ideal for lounging and entertaining sits
proudly in the center of the rooftop patio. The columns are made of
coconut wood and are shaped like bamboo stalks with intricate Balinese carvings and a grass-thatched roof top. To complete the experience, a glass skylight with views through all four levels of the house acts as a bar for entertaining.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Hi. My name is Adam Shaffer. Welcome to the Bali Beach Paradise! I spent two years creating this home. It is my masterpiece! My inspiration was Bali. I fell in love with the architecture and beauty of the place from looking in books of wonderful home and villas. After designing the home, I decided to go to Bali and hand pick all the furniture, decorative pieces, art,statues, and a lot of the stone. The result was spectacular! Although I designed it for myself, I decided a while ago to rent it as a vacation home for others to enjoy. I have received letters, gifts, and heartfelt thanks for the wonderful moments that they have had. I look forward to meeting you and hope you too get to experience this truly magical place!

Why the Owner Chose Marina del Rey:
I decided to purchase this home because of the location. The area is fantastic! It has one of the nicest beaches in Southern California and is in an exclusive neighborhood called 'The Marina Peninsula'. It is steps to the sand and minutes to Venice, Santa Monica, and the airport.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
What's great about this home is that you feel like you're at a tropical paradise in some other country! The walls open up on two floors creating an indoor/outdoor experience. The fourth level has a huge patio, which boasts a king-size cabana and overlooks the Venice canal, Playa Del Rey, and the ocean. Although you may never feel like leaving this place, you should go for a bike ride along the beach, walk to the many cafes and restaurants down the way, and go for a swim or surf in the ocean! There are two piers on either side of the home. One is the Marina pier, which stretches into the ocean and enables you to watch the boats sail by. The other is the Venice Pier, where the surfurs like to go and is fun to walk out to. As many have said, there is no better place they have been! Come and see for yourself!
