Modern, Renovated, Oceanfront Condo on Sand, Ideal Location!

Bedrooms 2
Half Baths1
Space 1,433 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

This beach level, contemporary home, located directly on the sand in Marina Del Rey, was completely remodeled in 2010. The 18 foot bi-fold glass doors in the living area completely open up, letting in the ocean breezes and creating a true outdoor/indoor living space. Many properties in Marina del Rey are very narrow and have a 'tunnel view' - here, the home extends the entire width of the lot so it has a very large, open, airy feel to it.

Gourmet kitchen equipped with Italian Quartz counter tops and top of the line appliances - Miele dishwasher, Wolf Professional Range, and Subzero refrigerator. Kitchen also includes a microwave and toaster oven and is fully stocked with all the necessary accessories (electrics, pots/pans, bakeware, cookware, cutlery, grill accessories, coffee maker, etc). 

Throughout the house, you will find Du Chateau Waxed Oak Floors, High Ceilings, Lutron Lighting System, and Sonos speaker system.

2 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms:

1 king bed in master; en suite bath

1 queen bed with twin trundle in guest room

1 queen bed and full bed in adjoining bunk room (bunk room is located inside the guest bedroom, it is not a separate bedroom with its own entrance and there is no door separating the two areas).

Portable a/c window units in the bedrooms during warm months.

No attached neighbors on either side; truly like a stand alone home on the sand although there are two units above this lower unit.

Volleyball courts right out front. Parking garage for two cars.

Within walking distance to coffee, restaurants, shops and the Venice Pier/Boardwalk. You can also ride bikes all the way to the Santa Monica Pier and beyond via the Venice Bike Path, which runs along the beach. Great location to stay while in town to see the football games at Rose Bowl and the Coliseum!

About Tara A.

I grew up in Orange County and attended college at UC Irvine. I got my law degree at USC and practiced for several years before having children. I recently got my real estate license and live in Brentwood with my husband and 2 kids. I currently manage a number of short term rental properties, including two of my own properties on the beach.

Tara A. purchased this condo in 2014

Why Tara A. chose Venice

We have always loved the Marina del Rey area but really fell head over heels in love with it when our best friends bought their vacation home down the street just last year. Since then, our families have spent much time together at their condo and it didn't take long for us to realize that MDR offered the lifestyle we have always wanted. This house is located on the sand and you don't have to worry about high tides as there is unlimited beach out front on which to walk/play/lounge. Most importantly, the house is within walking distance to a myriad of restaurants and shops, as well as the Venice boardwalk/pier. The kids can ride their bikes all over the area. We look forward to making many wonderful memories in this house with our friends and family.

What makes this condo unique

18 foot long bi-fold doors open up all the way to create the ultimate indoor/ outdoor space in the main living area!

Amazing Oceanfront Property

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away as soon as we opened the door to the unit. It was so much more than we expected. The pictures do not do it justice. All of the beds were comfortable with nice bedding. Loved having 2 full bathrooms to help get all the sand off. Each room has an air conditioner in it that helps cool the rooms at bed time. When the wall of windows is opened, it allows all that great ocean air in. That was one of our favorite things about this unit. The kitchen layout is great to cook in while your family is enjoying the patio or the sand right off your patio. The unit is equipped with some sand toys, boogie boards, outdoor games, beach chairs and an umbrella. It's a short walk to the Venice pier where there's a couple really yummy restaurants and bars. The beach is pretty private and only gets a few locals passing by walking their pets in the morning and evening hours. It is a little bit of a walk to the water, but that didn't bother us. Also, construction was going on next door, which did get a little noisy at times, but would not stop us from booking again. Tara was great to work with and responded to our texts and emails quickly. We loved our stay here and hope to return again.

Amazing...stop looking and rent this location!

  • 5 of 5

Stop Thinking And Rent This Place!

I was lucky to be able to rent location for several days for my family, which includes a one year old, and my sister-in-law’s family ,which includes two small children. This location is absolutely ideal and worth every penny, its located directly on one of my favorite spots on Venice beach which is just the perfect distance from all the tourist and increased traffic but still a direct shot to the beach. The front patio is right on the beach, and the rental provides toys for all ages, which was amazing for the small children on the trip. They could easily walk around the patio wall and play in the sand while we were able to watch them from the patio. The rental provides all that any family could use, TV’s - Check!, Internet - Check!, Board Games for adults - Check!, Two-Car Garage - Check! I cannot speak highly enough about this location, its perfect for a group of 7-9 people, including kids. Tara is also an excellent host, she was proactive with any issue we had and communicating how best to enjoy our time in the house. I will be renting this location again!

Great Beach Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as presented. Would definitely rent again. Location on beach was ideal as it is far enough away from public parking that it did not get overly crowded in that area. The condo is smartly designed and very comfortable. Everything worked and was in good condition. Two car parking was also a great bonus. The owner was very easy to communicate with.

Property was great. Right in the sand and away from the craziness.

  • 5 of 5

You can walk or ride bikes to Venice beach and Santa Monica and there are tons of restaurants to walk to. Traffic at the beach is always rough so we recommend riding bikes or walking as much as possible.

Tara the owner of the house is very friendly and easy to communicate with. She addressed any small issues we had right away and the house was perfect for 5. It is well equipped with things you would need and very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!
