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.

About Adam Shaffer
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!
Adam Shaffer purchased this Townhome in 2007
Why Adam Shaffer chose Marina Peninsula
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.
What makes this Townhome unique
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!

This place was breathtaking , upon our arrival to LA we were booked at another VRBO rental in Santa Monica. This was not a good experience , we called around and Found this beautiful place, less money and 5 star quality! We were rescued by Adam the owner who meet with us immediately and working diligently to get us into his home by the end of the day! He was accommodating to our family and gave us a vacation with first class quality! I cannot express enough gratitude to Adam! The house was steps to the beach and the walk to Washington street was a breeeze! This street was full of cool places to eat! We had easy access to everything and the home itself was as if we were in a constant state of relaxation! The home has amazing energy and gorgeous decor ! The top of the roof has a private deck to sit and enjoy hot tea in the morning! The middle level has a opened window as long as the house that feels as if your in the jungle with all the beautiful landscape! I cannot say anything negative about this house! The most extrodinary part is the hospitality that we received the month we were in California by Adam!! Wonderful experience for us!
Jayon and his family were a pleasure to host. It gave me a lot of satisfaction to accommodate them in their time of need. I'm very glad that they ended up enjoying themselves and having the vacation that they deserved!
What an incredible experience!
From the beginning Adam was more than accommodating and the home was magnificent! It is like walking into a Balinese resort with 4 levels of beautiful architecture and stunning interior design. Every floor in the home is stunning and extremely well done. The lounge like decore makes for a relaxing time and super comfortable. The cabana on the roof was my favorite place to have my coffee in the morning and my glass of wine at night. The location couldn't be any more ideal, just a few seconds from the sand. The beach is one of the most picturesque I've ever been on as well. I can't say enough about this place! If you have an opportunity to stay here don't hesitate for a moment!!
Ocean getaway....Outstanding location
Our goal was to find a relaxing location away from the hustle and bustle that would allow us to explore the coastal area on foot, bike or car. This home was perfect for our needs. We loved the roof top cabana and used it daily for the beautiful LA sunsets. Adam was an outstanding host, friendly, engaging and knowledgeable about the area.
The Balinese theme and the functional lay out of the house made for a fantastic experience and a great getaway from the snow back home. We would be delighted to return almost anytime.
Bali Paradise in Exclusive Peninsula of Marina Del Rey
Gorgeous beach home tucked in a zen garden. Loved biking daily to Santa Monica pier and back for sunset. The rooftop cabana will inspire me forever. You can stretch your toes in the tub it is so long! Just book it- it will be an incredible experience. The design and Balinese furnishings elevate the experience to extraordinary.
We spent a beautiful February in Adam's lovely home, enjoying walks on the beach instead of shoveling snow back home. Visually unique, with great common space inside and out. The roof deck patio is out of the ordinary, functional and provides a sheltered outdoor space with views. The location is in convenient walking distance to the marina and Venice pier restaurants, and a short drive to all Santa Monica has to offer. A great base for day trips, or doing nothing. No real problems with the property, but Adam was extremely responsive to a few minor issues and questions. Can't say enough good things about this property.
We just spent The month of August at Adams extraordinary home! It was everything we expected and more. He really went to great lengths in decorating it in true Balinese style! The attention to detail in the decor was amazing... Truly stunning!! It was so peaceful and relaxing, we absolutely loved the rooftop patio and Bali bed where we relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful views of the canal. The home was close proximity to the beautiful white sand beach, which was never crowded, it was like your own private beach! We really enjoyed the evenings watching the sunset from the shoreline with a glass of wine. We also loved walking to Washington Boulevard where there are an assortment of great restaurants. Pretty much anything you would want; Greek, Mexican, Thai, sushi, Italian, A Starbucks even a Cold stone creamery! its really an ideal location in every way. I would highly recommend Adam's exotic Balinese escape on the beautiful Marina Peninsula!
