Best At The Beach – California Dreamin’ – One House to Ocean
Located at the quiet end of the Golden Peninsula, (but close to all the activity), on a beautiful tree-lined walk street, with open views to the golden sand beach, you simply cannot find a better location to spend your well-deserved vacation. Swim, sunbathe, take long beach walks at sunset, boogie board, bodysurf, kayak, fish - your choice - it’s all right here. Or just relax on the serene deck while absorbing the beauty surrounding this romantic, enchanting get-away for two.
This 2-story 1 bedroom Loft home was designed for light and for having an outdoor feeling. The entire front side is glassed. The unit includes hard wood floors, a fireplace, and contemporary living space.
With its art deco flair and light flooding into every room, this vacation rental is fully stocked with everything one could want or need. For those who wish to dine elegantly at home, the gourmet kitchen is equipped with all new stainless steel appliances and also includes spices, cooking oils, and a pantry of condiments. Use the Weber gas BBQ for that “at-the-beach/on-vacation” ambience. All you need to do is supply your favorite fresh foods and drinks. A fireplace adds to the romantic touch.
A 5-minute drive brings you to shopping in Marina Del Rey and Venice Beach. Santa Monica is next door. Visit the nearby farmers markets or enjoy eating Italian, Mexican, Thai, seafood, pizza or local dishes in quaint Marina Del Rey, Venice Beach and Santa Monica.
If you wish to keep in touch with the world outside, we provide wireless and wired high-speed broadband Internet (printer connection is USB only) and a 46” flat screen TV. For your recreation pleasure, there are 2 bikes, 2 boogie boards, and beach towels.

A Delightful Place!
We loved our stay at Best-at-the-Beach. It was a delightful place and we enjoyed being so close to the beach. We would like to return another time and will contact you when we know what our plans are for next year. It's a great location for us, in addition to being a lovely spot.

Stellar home and owners!
Stellar home and owners!
This rental is GORGEOUS and blew away all of our expectations. From the beginning, Jamie and Noi were incredibly helpful and responsive to my husband and I. Upon arriving, we had to check the address twice - just to make sure we were at the right place. We thought there was no way we were lucky enough to be so close to the ocean...the ad is as true to the rental as it could ever be and if anything, didn't do it justice! The kitchen was well stocked and every detail was thought of. It's apparent that they really care about the property and the people who stay there as guests. Little things like rolls of quarters (in exchange for bills) available for laundry and parking, a welcome guide to help orient you to the house and area, as well as a printer - filled with ink! - in the office area, really made a huge impact on us. We wanted for nothing and it was by far the most relaxing property we could have secured. If you're thinking about renting this space...STOP! Stop thinking and just do it. You really won't regret it and if you don't do it, you'll be missing out hugely. We've already booked their larger rental space for next year and know we'll be coming back for many, many years to come!

Stay Longer Next Time!
Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed Best-at-the-Beach. Everything was perfect and just like the pictures. We especially enjoyed the champagne when we arrived and the fresh fruit. It was also a pleasant surprise to find that we didn't have to drive down Pacific Ave. to get to Washington. We will have to stay longer next time! Thank you again!

Love this location and the accommodations
This is our second stay at Best-at-the Beach and we plan to come back. The location in Marina Peninsula is ideal for us: quiet, private, surrounded by beautiful homes and scenery, steps from the beach and the channel that gives boats access to the Marina del Rey docking facilities (love watching the boats going in and out) yet near to restaurants, shopping and activities, including those of Venice Beach and Santa Monica . We have really enjoyed bike riding to Venice Beach and beyond with the bikes provided by our terrific hosts, Noi and Jamie. Importantly, we are able to cook for and entertain our two sons, who live in la, the way we want because the kitchen is fully equipped and well appointed. The layout of the space is fine for this purpose. In short, we found the location, accommodations and amenities to be as advertised. Noi and Jamie are accessible, helpful, responsive and charming. They have made us feel welcomed and comfortable during our two stays.

Brilliant Time!Guest comment entered by owner
We have had a brilliant time here. The place is wonderful in a fantastic location and you have put so much thought into everything. So much more was provided than we expected and little touches like leaving rolls of quarters were brilliant. !Many Thanks

A Wonderful Experience
Loved the Best-at-the-Beach, the beach, watching the fireworks, watching the boats in the channel, the Venice Canals, and the long walks on the beach. I didn't even mind the LA driving. I've heard nightmares about driving there. Thanks for making our stay a wonderful experience and we may have to contact you again in the future about staying there or one of your other properties.
