About the property

Gorgeous Beach Home In Marina Peninsula, 30 Steps From Sand, Near Malibu.

Gorgeous beach home in Marina Peninsula, 30 steps from sand, near Malibu. Short bike ride/walk to chic restaurants/shops and Venice boardwalk. Floor-to-ceiling windows, and rooftop terrace w/ ocean views. Chef’s kitchen (Viking/SubZero) + BBQ. 2 rain showers.

Enjoy the beauty of LA’s pristine beaches and the California lifestyle in this gorgeous beach home located in the Marina Dely Rey Peninsula. Literally thirty (30) steps from the sand, our 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home is centrally located in between world-famous Venice Beach and Marina Del Rey, adjacent to Santa Monica, and a short scenic drive to Malibu. Our beach house was designed with a contemporary “sun, sand, water” inspiration. One (1) master bedroom AND one (1) Master loft bedroom with king size beds, plus a “kids” room with 2 bunk beds (i.e., 4 twins), make this home a perfect luxurious beach get-away for up to 2 families. Moreover, each master comes with its own private en-suite bath making it a breeze to get ready to go explore. The master loft bedroom looks over the living room and has a direct view of the ocean.

Where to go is endless …. A short bike ride or walk to a myriad of restaurants and shops, not to mention the Venice boardwalk and the main Venice Canal, the artsy/hip Abbot Kinney (home to many of LA's best restaurants), and the glorious yachts and boardwalk of Marina Del Rey. Activities ranging from paddle boarding, surfing, boating, fishing, bike riding, rollerblading, and just plain relaxing are all at your finger tips. Want to play volleyball? There's a volleyball court thirty steps from the house where you can host a game. Feel like staying in? Twenty foot tall living room ceilings with floor-to-ceiling windows and ocean views, a cozy fire place, service bar, and a 65 inch flat-screen TV make snuggling up on the designer sofa and watching the latest football game or film on Netflix very enticing. Overlook the Pacific Ocean, enjoy spectacular sunsets, or have a zen yoga session all from the comfort of your personal rooftop terrace. A 2 car garage makes parking a snap. You may even want to stay in and cook or have a BBQ because preparing a meal in the fully equipped chef’s kitchen (complete with all top-of-the-line appliances including a Viking stove and Sub Zero refrigerator) will be a joy. Finally, unwind in one of the 2 spacious dual person rain showers after a fun day at the beach and being out and about in Los Angeles.

If you come during the 4th of July, you'll enjoy an amazing fireworks show from the rooftop terrace that is presented by the famed Zambelli; the fireworks are launched from a barge right in the main channel of the Marina (a 5 min walk). If you come during the winter holidays, you'll enjoy a spectacular holiday boat parade in the main channel as well. After spending some time at our beach house, we are sure you will love our home as much as we do and will return time and again.

Please note that our home contains lots of stairs, no elevator, and, like most beach houses in the area, does not have air conditioning. Just open up the doors and windows and let the ocean breeze in.

This house is in a great location, steps to the beach! It came with all of the beach toys, bikes, towels etc that you would need as well as all of the kitchen items for cooking and grilling. Would highly recommend!

Beautiful home next to the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the beach house in Dec 2016 with my parents, my wife and daughter (18 months), and my brother and his girlfriend. The house is well located next to the beach, far enough from the bustle of Venice Beach and central to all our L.A. activities. We walked to Venice Beach every day and drove to Santa Monica to eat out. Host Craig was very helpful and we had everything we needed, incuding a safe garage spot. House was clean, quiet, modern, with a common area large enough for us to hang out, cook together and play games. The house also has a rooftop patio that we could have used if the temperature had been warmer. Would definitively recommend the beah house again if staying in LA.

Excellent home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (including two young children - 3yrs old and 8 months old) spent the Thanksgiving holiday here. The home was perfect! The split-floor plan - master suite/loft on the third floor and second master suite and third bedroom/bunk room - worked very well for us as it provided privacy for my kids, wife and I, as well as the grandparents. The main level (kitchen/living room) was wide open and bright.

Beyond the house layout, the location was great and home was well appointed with kitchen supplies, beach toys and bikes. The one drawback - nothing to do with the owners or house - was the fact that there is NOT a boardwalk or bike path along the beach between the house and Venice, so unless you want to walk in the sand the whole way (approx. 1 mile), you have to walk the alley/street. The upshot to this is the beach by the house is very quiet and peaceful!

Craig and Irene were both extremely responsive and welcoming - though we never met in person, they were fantastic!

My family and I would definitely stay here again!

P.S. One other thing to consider is that there are a lot of stairs at the home - stairs to get in from the garage + 3 additional levels. It was not an issue for my family, but it is not ideal for elderly people, or those that have difficulty getting around.

Wonderfully awesome house

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time booking with VRBO. We felt welcome from the start. Booking and checkin-in was easy since Craig was very patient with us throughout that process. The house is well appointed with just about everything a family needs for a great beach vacation. The house is very well maintained and was very clean with an awesome modern chic layout and furnishings. The neighborhood was quiet and felt safe. If we come back to the LA area, we would definitely book this house again.
