About the Property

This is a very popular rental with competitive rates however when there is the occasional cancellation or random vacancy at the last minute you're in luck and may find DRASTICALLY REDUCED rates and/or we may permit ONE NIGHT STAYS for these specific dates. This does not indicate a slack in service, amenities or cleanliness. We treat all our guests like royalty so expect the royal treatment regardless of what you pay.

This is 1 of 4 BEACH rentals I have located right next to one another. If you have larger groups and want more space and cant find the dates you're looking for please inquire about my other rentals. You can do a search for: BAMBOO BEACH HUT, 10 STEPS TO SAND w/TIKI BAR, PATIO, BBQ , BIKES & SURFBOARDS. that sleeps 1-4 or my OCEANFRONT BEDROOM SUITES in shared home that sleeps up to 1-3 persons in each bedroom. Please text me for links to those rentals.

This is a PEACEFUL PARADISE AT THE BEACH in Marina del Rey, (Venice adjacent 3 blocks). Quiet, safe area located across from the beach. Ocean view, deluxe bedding, outdoor patio w/dining table & BBQ.

THIS UNIT SLEEPS: 4-10 persons VERY COMFORTABLY with plenty of space for entertaining and storage for your suitcases. For larger groups of more than 8 people please inquire about my additional rentals located on or near the same property. This includes 2 queen beds + 5 twin beds (or a king) + a comfy couch. I use only the best mattresses, and 100% cotton bed sheets, bedding and both fluffy & firm pillows. Our fine bed sheets are pressed like a hotel room and every nook and cranny is meticulously cleaned. Our new double-pane windows and blackout window shades in the bedrooms make the unit nearly soundproof and climate controlled for a great night’s sleep. Plug outlets next to each bed make it easy to charge your cel phones and tablets at night.

Our authentic TIKI BAR (that lights up at night just for fun!) makes everyone smile and remember to relax and have some fun. The unit also includes new hard wood floors, vintage surf & beach pictures, a cozy couch, a fluffy area rug, a papassan chair, huge TV , wireless internet + cable, games, books and toys for kids.

IN THE FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN you will find: New pots & pans and lots of other cooking utensils, 3 coffee makers (French Press, cappuccino or pod), tea kettle (and a COMPLIMENTARY organic coffee, teas, sweeteners and bottled water to get you started your first day. You will also find paper towel, trash bags and cleaning supplies.

IN THE BATHROOMS you will find: Bath and beach towels (enough for each person in your group, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and extra toilet paper.

HOME MANUAL & GUEST GUIDE BOOK (made exclusively by your host, a long time local of the area) that includes a local's perspective on the best RESTAURANTS, SHOPPING, ACTIVITIES, SIGHTSEEING and special sections for "KIDS" (highlights activities for kids of all ages and Babysitting and Chaperoning services available), and the other section is a "NATURAL HEALTH & WELLNESS" section that features the areas top health food restaurants, grocery stores, massage spas and holistic practitioners. If you're looking to get healthy California is the place and your host can point you in the right direction.

YOUR HOST Aunt Betty resides just across the street. Don't hesitate to contact her if you have any questions (such as the best restaurants to go to, where to take a surf lesson, how to get to Abbot Kinney shopping or any other question about the area). Aunt Betty will text or call you to check in on you from time to time to ensure you have everything you need and I may drop by (with prior notice) to perform maintenance or replenish cleaning supplies when needed. Other than that you will have all the privacy you need and I aim to provide you with the best rental experience possible.

THERES SO MUCH TO DO AND SEE in and around our area that you couldn't see and do it all in a month! So many travelers come for only a few nights and wish they had booked it longer. From outdoor water sports (like surfing, swimming, boogie boarding, jet skiing, paddle boarding, cycling, rollerblading, paddle tennis and hiking) to sightseeing the historic Venice canals, Washington street pier to watch the dolphins and surfers, a stroll down the famous Venice boardwalk for a tattoo or a t-shirt or to buy a piece of art from one of the local vendors. You cant miss the Olympic skateboard park, the open air farmers market, shopping on Abbot Kinney and the Third Street Promenade, the Marina boat parade, free concerts in the boat marina at Burton Chase Park and the Santa Monica pier for the kids theme park carnival, the marine aquarium, the Ferris wheel and the newly built Tongva Park, restaurants, and day trips to Malibu, Escondido Falls, Temescal and Topanga Canyon hikes, or Redondo & Laguna Beach to watch the Olympic volleyball players training. Its endless!

Due to the low price and popularity of this rental it books up rapidly, often many months in advance so I cannot "hold" dates for anyone without a pending reservation request. Please contact me to confirm availability and we will respond quickly with any questions you may have.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: My life as a pro photographer, published author and interior designer has made it an segway into hosting.. I am a true "people person" - enjoy meeting different people from different parts of the world, races and cultures. While this website is limited to only 24 photos you may contact me for many more. I custom design each of my rentals with my trademark tropical, bamboo flair with a peaceful, relaxing sense of space and design. I want all my guests to have some fun but be able to have a great restful night's sleep as well. I LOVE to pamper my guests in any way possible and my rentals are turn-key with all the amenities you might desire. Every nook and cranny is meticulously cleaned and our fine 100% Egyptian cotton bed sheets are pressed like a 5-star hotel. I use only top quality pillows, 100% cotton bedding and deluxe mattresses because I assume everyone is as finicky as I am. You'll sleep like a rock and thats what life is all about. I'm an active, healthy, middle-aged woman and I love to surf, hike and bike. I'm well-traveled, speak two languages and have spent many years living abroad. I'm an open-minded, accepting, free-spirited lady who welcomes ALL people of all races, cultures or sexual orientation. I value your privacy so I never pry or ask questions. Come and go as you please but if you have questions about anything don't hesitate to ask me. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of the area and my passion for the California culture. I'll definitely point you in the right direction for the best restaurants, where to get a pedicure or a massage, shopping, surf lessons and must-see locals spots. I want to make sure you feel ABSOLUTELY AT HOME and have all the ideal comforts one would want during your stay. This is a very unique and special place with a beautiful interior and lots of amenities so I am seeking respectful renters who honor and cherish it as much as I do.

Why the Owner Chose Venice, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
This property is situated in the most ideal location - just steps to the beach with an ocean view and only a few blocks from the restaurants, bars and shops. Its the perfect place for families and friends or a romantic, private get away. The interior space is LARGE so there is plenty of room for you and your other guests to move around and have your own space. While the Venice boardwalk is 10 blocks away the marina peninsula is a private, safe, peaceful beach community unlike anyplace else in the world. You may feel at ease walking around at night and people are very friendly. Don't be surprised if someone smiles, says hello or stops to give you directions. That's just how we are here. You can walk, bike or skateboard to just any place. You don't really need a car. Just take a ride sharing service like LYFT or UBER, a taxi or grab the bus when you need to.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The location of this apartment is by far THE most desirable neighborhood in all of Los Angeles. The building is charming, with only has 4 units so it feels more like a little house than an apartment. Most of my guests don't want to leave the Marina Peninsula. They just fall in love with everything you can see and do. The building has just been renovated with new paint, new dual-pane, sound proof windows and a new outdoor dining patio with ocean view, seating for 10 and a BBQ. You don't really need a car. Most locals bike, skate, walk or grab a cheap ride-service such as "LYFT" (50% cheaper than a standard taxi and a much nicer car ride). Just download the LYFT app to your smart phone and use the promo code ELIZABETH337512 for a $10 FREE credit on your first ride. Most guests tell me they wish they didn't spend the money renting a car. There is also a bus stop just a few blocks away that will take you into Hollywood. However, if you do have a car you have a guaranteed PRIVATE PARKING SPACE right in front of your door! Please inquire with your host if you have additional vehicles and we "Might" be able to coordinate additional parking.
