About Andrea and Mark Malin
He's a software developer and she blogs about their travels in their Airstream. Both born and raised in Southern California -- Culver City and Pasadena -- and married for 6 years. We have a rear house on the property where our daughter lives so there is always someone around to provide advice, directions or an extra key.
Andrea and Mark Malin purchased this House in 1997
Why Andrea and Mark Malin chose Mar Vista
Our neighborhood is very walkable and safe, plus there are restaurants, markets, bars, coffee houses and a Sunday Farmers Market just a block away! Purchased 18 years ago, we renovated this mid-century house ourselves and consider it a labor of love. We feel very lucky to be able to own a piece of West Los Angeles and share it with others.
What makes this House unique
It's difficult to find a 5 bedroom house in West LA, especially one as nice as ours, for such a reasonable price, too! We are freeway close to everything LA has to offer -- Disneyland, Universal Studios, Hollywood and Downtown LA -- and minutes to Venice and Santa Monica AND Malibu beaches, as well. Its one of the reasons we bought the house in the first place, just a great property with a terrific location.

By far one of the best b&b’s we’ve stayed at. Conveniently located not far from Venice and Santa Monica. Cvs and grocery store right next door. Mark and Andrea are awesome. There was cheese and fresh cut strawberries when we arrived which was perfect after a long flight. Later in the week Mark cooked for us and they had dinner with our group. Great getting to know Mark and Andrea!
Warm, welcoming visit to Venice Beach property ID 729826
My family group of 8 had a wonderful stay at the Mar Vista home in the Venice Beach area of Los Angeles. Mark and Andrea greeted us on arrival with a very warm welcome and a cheese and fruit tray! Plus, they took the time to answer any questions about the area, home and directions. The home was clean, well stocked with dishes, cooking needs (pans, utensils, plus basics like spices, oils, condiments), plenty of towels, beach towels, shampoos, soaps. All five bedrooms were nicely furnished and the beds and linens were comfortable and very nice. There are plenty of restaurants, coffee shops and a grocery (1/2 mile) within walking distance. There is one parking space in the driveway and easy unrestricted street parking. Venice Beach is a two mile walk, but there is also plenty of public parking within close walking distance to the beach. My family and I would highly recommend Mark and Andrea's Mar Vista home.
Fantastic, as advertised property in a great location!
Overall great experience and would highly recommend to medium sized groups. Fantastic property with close proximity to Venice, Santa Monica, etc.
Loving it in LA
Wonderful house in a great location. My mom and Auntie loved it and repeatedly thanked me for booking such a great house. The owners Mark and Andrea were so nice. Upon arrival they had prepared a fruit and cheese platter along with cold beverages for us. That was very impressive. We love the location so close to the beach. We spent 3 nights at the house and then stayed a couple nights at the Disneyland Grand Hotel. We enjoyed our time at the house more than we Disneyland. My husband has already decided he wants to go again and stay at this house.
As described and a great place with very comfy beds. Kitchen was well stocked with staples.
Mark and Andrea were great hosts and very responsive to any request we had. Outdoor deck right off kitchen was great with a table that can seat 12 people. And it had a heater which we didn't really use but would be great on those cool nights. Hot tub was great too. Location was great with a 1 minute walk to a CVS and great Japanese market. Really convenient. Thanks so much and would definitely recommend to others.
The most accommodating
This house was perfect for our group of 8. We arrived to the owners, Andrea and Mark, who had set up a fruits and cheese plate for our arrival. They had a full kitchen and plenty of waters and sodas stocked up. From the kitchen we had 2 decks to lounge on - one with a jacuzzi that was very clean and the perfect temperature. The upstairs living space has a massive tv and bose speaker system (bring an aux cord and you can hook up your phone). There were two full bathrooms stocked with super soft towels, shampoo, conditioner, and soaps, along with high end toilet paper - nice touch! They also had a washing machine and dryer. The owners also made us a nice Tri-tip sandwich platter on our second day - it was absolutely fantastic! I would definitely book with these owners again.
Very walkable, family-friendly location with several restaurants, coffee houses and bars within blocks of our home, including a Sunday Farmers Market 2 blocks away. Venice Beach is 2 miles west straight down Venice Blvd and Santa Monica lies just north of Venice, featuring the famous Santa Monica Pier and 3rd Street Promenade, famous for wonderful shopping, eating and people watching! Plus we're 10 minutes from LA International Airport (LAX), 30 minutes to Universal Studios, 25 minutes to Hollywood Blvd, and an hour to Disneyland. We are truly freeway close to everything you'd want to do in Los Angeles.
