About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bath Condo Surrounded by Water

Our ocean view, 3 bedroom -2 bath condo is steps to the sand in Playa del Rey’s beachside community.

The cozy unit sleeps 6+ is freshly painted, stocked and set up for beach fun: kitchen supplied for cooking with amenities including coffee, teas, sugar, and spices - high thread-count linens, bathrobes, shampoo, conditioner, blow dryers - supplies for days in the sand including beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towel, coolers and toys for the kids.

Enjoy a view of the yacht races and incredible sunsets from the balcony. Escape crowded beaches with the one in the backyard mainly frequented by locals.

This hideaway is nestled within the exclusive few block area surrounded by Santa Monica Bay to the west, Marina del Rey and Ballona Creek to the north, and Del Rey Lagoon to the east.

The property is one building and approximately 50 yards to the sand with direct view of the ocean. Please note: some map apps are incorrectly placing the address 1.5 blocks from its actual location. We are between Speedway & Pacific Avenues on 64th.

Next to the bike path, Olympian volleyball practice nets, and near marina bike, kayak and boat rentals. It’s an ideal location for families or couples.

A short walk to the village restaurants, pubs and markets, allows guests to forget about driving for their stay.

With the recently opened Playa Provisions Restaurant and Bacari Wine Bar opening late July 2014, Playa eateries within walking distance are on the rise.

Playa del Rey is minutes from LAX and the 405, 105, 110, 10, 90 freeways to Downtown LA, Staples Center, Staples & Nokia Centers, Beverly Hills and farther locations such as Santa Barbara and San Diego.

Make us your holiday destination, an “easy LAX access” layover, or a place to bring the family along while you work. We look forward to sharing our hidden gem!

Great stay in Playa del Rey

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week long stay at Cheryl's beautiful condo in the beach. Cheryl was definitely one of the most hospitable hosts we have encountered during all our stays at home away properties. She had goodies waiting for us upon arrival and even left us some July 4th treats. The condo was very well appointed with toys for our kids, chairs, toys and umbrellas for the beach and plenty for linens. The kitchen was also well stocked. We cooked a lot and found we had all the tools and gadgets we needed for the week. Paper towels and toilet paper were also provided for the week. The view from the balcony was beautiful! You are just steps from the beach. The beach was not crowded and was a great choice for our family with young children. We looked all over the LA area and we are so glad we chose to stay here!

Amazing location next to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time staying here. The property is as close to the beach as you can be without being right on the beach. Coffee on the balcony gazing at the ocean in the mornings was one of my favorite things. We never felt crowded and had all the amenities of home. Upon arrival we were greeted with a wonderful welcome basket with lots of goodies and information on the community. We also took provided chairs and umbrella out to the beach which was really convenient. Cheryl responded so quickly when we had any inquiries. Definitely a great vacation, we would stay here again for sure!

Had a Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Definitely would come again and recommend to all. This place had everything! The bathroom were clean and stock with lots of clean fluffy white towels. The linens smells clean and fresh. The host was very accommodating and friendly. She even left a basket of snacks, milk, orange juice and donuts for us and they were good. The only negative was the air mattress did not stay inflated. The boys were on the floor middle of the night. Overall, the a stay was better then I anticipated.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Cheryl and Len for an absolutely wonderful stay. What a perfect place for my family of 4. The location is just steps away from the beach and walking/bike path. Upon our arrival we were treated to a tray of snacks and baked goods which were an nice surprise. The home was comfortable and cozy and had everything we needed for our stay including beach chairs, toys, and beach towels. My teenagers loved the endless selection of movies on the tv. There are several great restaurants and bars within walking distance and the neighborhood of Play del Rey was quiet and safe. Parking was a plus and the place is very easy to get to from the airport. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend to friends and family or anyone traveling to the Los Angeles area. A big thank you again to Cheryl and Len for their hospitality!

Not Luxury, but very nice, great location and very accomodating hosts.

  • 5 of 5

There are a couple of small things that need attention, so if you want perfect or luxury look elsewhere. However, everything worked, the location was great, some very nice touches like the towels and pastries and goodies left for us. The kitchen is well appointed, the owners were accomodating and very quick to respond. I give this 5 stars despite a few small criticism that I'll communicate to the owners because the overall experience was very good and I absolutely would rent here again. I enjoyed my stay.

We had a great time and property was great for our needs

  • 4 of 5

The property was a little hard to find at first so perhaps a simple diagram of the general area of pacific and 64th showing the building driveway and beach would be useful. Google map thought we were across the street. The unit itself is very nice and roomy and perfect for a small family. The only adjustment we had to make from the description is the pull out bed in one of the bedrooms can't pull out very far because of the wall so the only person who that could really be a bed for would be a small child. So what you really have is a king bed a queen bed and a full bed in 3 separate rooms. For us this worked because I had my oldest with my youngest daughter in the king, I took the queen, and the second child in the full so everyone was happy. If you had a group larger than 4 I would make sure you are dealing with people who have no problem sleeping in the same bed.

The unit itself is well cared for and charming. It is older but the appliances are new so everything works well. The beds are comfortable as is the furniture.

As for the location it is on the beach as told. You can see the beach from the balcony and it is on the beach. Geographically it is next to the marina which means it is literally isolated from all the beaches north like Venice and Santa Monica not because they aren't close but because there is an enormous marina between you and it. This makes the area somewhat quiet and isolated so if that's what your looking for then that's perfect. It isn't a pedestrian world like some other communities so you will need to drive or uber to get to most bars restaurants etc, there is very little within walking distance. The bike trails are amazing and go everywhere but we didn't have bikes so we went to venice to rent bikes there and rode to Santa Monica. But If what you want is a calm less crowded beach experience in la this is a perfect spot.

Car: necessary

“King’s Beach,” has long been an escape within the bustle of Los Angeles since the days of Cecil B. Demille, Mary Pickford and Fatty Arbuckle who all had homes in Playa del Rey. Playa still has a quaint small time feel and is one of the unspoiled beaches of Los Angeles.
