Mar Vista/Venice Bright and classic 2 Bd HOUSE w large redwood deck. Sleeps 6.

Mar Vista, Los Angeles, CA, USA
  • House1000 sqft
  • Bedrooms2
  • Sleeps6
  • Bathrooms1
  • Half Baths0
  • Minimum Stay2 - 3 nights

Charming 2 bed 1 bath 50's bungalow with beautiful new outdoor living space.

This is an awesome, private, freestanding single family home in a very safe residential neighborhood. We do not live here so the home is clean and free of personal clutter. Also, we listened to the reviews of our first guests and added A/C units and a bunch of new cook wear. You will love the 10 minute bike ride to Marina Del Rey, Venice and Santa Monica beaches and the 5 min walk to busy downtown Mar Vista. We just built a lovely red wood deck so there is much space for outdoor chill and grill time.

We've furnished the house with relaxation in mind.

Minimum stays: 3 nights

Maximum stays: 21 nights

We may consider longer stays.

The house was designed for vacation rental so it is very clean and clutter free. Large living room, spacious rooms and a dining room that seats 4-6 and 2 bar stools for the others. French doors in the master look onto a new beautiful redwood deck. We've got plenty of cozy outdoor seating as well.

Central location lends to a 10 bike ride to beach or 15 min car ride to DTLA. Close to metro train. Walking distance to fun bars and restaurants. Mar Vista farmers market Sunday's.

Unfortunately we no longer allow pets. Well... we will consider a tiny dog. ;)

Weekends are 3 night minimum. Maximum stays are 21 days but ask and we MAY be able to accommodate.

I am the proud owner of one of Venice Beach's busiest hair salons on trendy Abbot Kinney Blvd. I am happy to extend a friendly discount to those of you that are in need or desire a cut, color or blow out. The salon is called Trim Hair Salon. Find on Search sites.

We have:

4 bicycles available for use.

A large gas grill on the deck.

And many household amenities like cook wear, iron/board, blow dryer, beach needs and more.

We live nearby and are happy to accommodate any special needs as we are new and still appreciate the input on forgotten items.

Transportation and travel:

We are near many LA bus stops, a mile from the metro train, 15 minutes from LAX.

THE 405 and 10 freeways are both within 2 miles.

Uber and Lyft are app's that both work well throughout Los Angeles. Very fairy priced and reliable.

Please see our host manual for door/lock codes, bike info, TV/computer info and information and recommendations on some of our favorite local places.

We are very flexible so feel free to contact us with questions and special needs.

Nik Rae Roybal purchased this House in 2003

Why Nik Rae Roybal chose Culver - West

You really can't do better than Mar Vista. Being a short mile from the beach but without all of the congestion. You will love the peace and quiet along with unlimited parking.

What makes this House unique

My lovely little home is an actual home, unlike other listings that are listed under "home" but are truly condo's or apartments. This house is in a little area slightly east of Venice, called Mar Vista. Mar Vista translates to Ocean View, which is what you used to have back in another day before development on the West side. We are central to many great spots and close to a metro train, DTLA, and several beaches.

                                                    The house was what we expected from the site, well appointed and spacious for our family. It was in a fabulous quiet location to explore the northern L.A. sites. We would highly recommend staying here...thanks Nik for a great little house!

                                                    Mar Vista beach house

                                                    Laurie D.

                                                    This sweet Beachhouse was everything it advertised to be. It is clean, efficient & well-maintained. The kitchen is well-supplied with plates, cookware & utensils and the bedrooms & fold out couch are well-supplied with sheets, blankets & pillows. There are interesting books, videos & games for entertainment and the furniture inside and out on the patio are comfortable, thoughtfully chosen & practical. My family and I enjoyed the privacy and the fenced-in yard of this lovely venue. Its proximity to the beach, parks, shopping and freeway access is ideal. I will absolutely book this property again when I visit my family in Santa Monica in the future. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

                                                    Awesome place!

                                                    Samantha L.

                                                    Really enjoyed staying here. Nik was very kind and helpful. The home had all things needed for a great stay! Would stay again !

                                                    Great place to stay!!

                                                    MIchelle M.

                                                    Nik was very helpful and fantastic host. She was great at communicating with us giving details on where to go and making sure we had everything we needed to have the best time at the beach. We loved it! Thanks Nik for making our first experience with renting a vacation home a great one! Would definitely recommend Nik’s place to rent.

                                                    Urban Tranquility

                                                    Pegge V.

                                                    This little piece of paradise in the middle of LA's concrete jungle couldn't be more perfect. Nestled among a tree-lined street, the home exudes positive, peaceful energy. All the rooms were spotless and there was everything we needed. I personally most appreciated the French press, incredibly comfortable king sized bed, and sitting at night on the magically lighted patio. Nik was super easy to communicate with; she even made sure we clearly understood the street parking to avoid a ticket. Thank you for such an extraordinary experience; I look forward to staying here again and will definitely recommend it to my friends and family.

                                                    Mar Vista, Los Angeles, CA, USA

                                                    Mar Vista is a sweet, quiet area approx 2 miles off of the beach in West Los Angeles. This neighborhood is newly gentrified with many lovely families. One can feel very safe during an evening walk to one of the many new restaurants or a jog around town in the morning. Mar Vista's historic "downtown" contains buildings built between 1924 and 1960 (including the original Mar Vista Library) in a wide variety of styles. You can find tattoo parlors, hand-brewed coffee, several new eatery's and the weekly farmers market. We are a quiet neighborhood but there is plenty of nightlife nearby.
