Jay purchased this house in 2014

Why Jay chose Playa del Rey

We have traveled all over the world in 4 & 5 star resorts and each and every time we booked rooms with Amazing Ocean Views in Italy,Greece, Fiji & Thailand so we purchased this house because of the Serenity, and the Amazing Amazing Sunset Ocean Views. Plus the the wildlife! Today a baby whale came into the Marina. Last week we saved a baby baby seal.The duck park is just 1/2 block away for the kids . The playground is 1 block away with a play structure, basketball courts baseball field,& volley ball courts. Plus, the Wetlands has over 500 species of birds is 5 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

Your just a leisure bike ride away from the craziness in Venice but still have a beach retreat to go to at the end of the day with AMAZING views! We have new bikes to head down the bike path to visit Santa Monica, Venice, Malibu, Marina Del Rey and Manhattan Beach and beyond!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have spent in the LA house 4 most beautiful days in our US trip. It was great having the beach right in front of your door. The host 'Juliete' was awsome. She brought to our kids all the toys they dreamt of (nerf guns, boards, bubble toys, glow sticks). The beach is quiet, nice and peaceful. You can realy rest there in comparison to Venice beach. Bike trips was a great fun for us, going south to venice or exploring the barbecue pits at Dockweilers beach on north. I would return there again!

Lovely beach home

More like a nice hotel than a house. The house is lovely, the location on the beach ideal for family activities, and the hostess thoughtful in every way. Our 5 days were perfect.

Fabulous month long stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our vacation at J's beautiful beach front retreat. The location was perfect for us, and J thought of everything to ensure we would love our stay. The property is spotless and includes many extras, that we have not seen in rentals in the past. Best was the bikes for the wonderful coastal bike path. We brought 2 of our own, but the extras came in handy a few times for guests. J is very responsive and easy to reach for any questions or concerns. I highly recommend renting any of her properties.

Beautiful view, Charming residence and wonderful host.

  • 5 of 5

It was an absolute pleasure staying in the property. After renting several other oceanfront properties recently... I can honestly say that this property is one of the nicest available in the price range. The home was clean, neat and inviting. I'm a bit of a germophobe so I wasn't a fan of staying in a personal residence. However, the owner Jay goes above and beyond to make you feel like you are in a five star resort!!!! There were fresh flowers, top of the line linens / bedding, fresh milk, my favorite wine, ZERO dust/dirt and the home had no smell...there's nothing worse than walking in and smelling the last tenants leftovers (trust me it happens more times than not). I could go on and on about how gorgeous the home and view was... The experience was nothing short of amazing!!! The only downside is that there's a typical parking crunch in the area so if you have a large car or multiple cars... Plan to rent a compact during your stay or park your car and use the complimentary bikes :)

I would definitely rate the property, amenities, location and owner A+++++++.

An absolute gem!
