About Andrea and Mark Malin

He's a software developer and she blogs about our travels in our Airstream! Both California kids we've been together for 15+ years and share many interests, including long road trips, historic renovations, great barbecue and classic cars.

Andrea and Mark Malin purchased this house in 1997

Why Andrea and Mark Malin chose Mar Vista

We renovated the whole property over the past 15 years and we think you'll love the way it turned out. The Front House is a turnkey 5 bedroom with every amenity and traveler could want: Gourmet kitchen with GE Monogram appliances, 6 person Jacuzzi, Outdoor Dining Table and barbecue deck off the Kitchen, Central HVAC, Nest Thermometer system, Outdoor fire pit on expansive lower deck, another huge deck off kitchen and dining room for eating or lounging, each bedroom equipped with flatscreen loaded with DirecTv packages like NFL Prime Ticket. The bedrooms throughout the property feature luxe linens and towels. The Loft sits over our 5 car garage and is a real sleeper of a property. Grab the stainless steel handrail and make your way upstairs -- this gem is a real surprise to all who enter! From the open concept living/dining/kitchen area with 55" smart tv and Bose sound system to the sizable island in the custom kitchen, we think you'll just love the space. Check out the romantic fireplace in the spacious Master as well as the walk-in closet. Comfy couches, distressed dining table, cool skylights and wonderful ambiance, we think you'll think of this as your other home! The Studio sits beneath the Front House and is an oasis of peace and quiet. Full kitchen and bath, w/d, SmarTv with Bose sound system, A/C with that huge deck right outside featuring a fire pit and several seating areas, plus gas grill and (coming Summer of 2017) an outdoor kitchen and bar right outside your front door. Truly a space to be appreciated.

What makes this house unique

We stock each kitchen with refrigerators full of beverages and welcome snacks upon arrival. Washer and drier located in each unit, which also boast large closets, plenty of food prep areas in each kitchen and full baths. With its size and convenient proximity to bath features custom Italian marble and a superb jetted soaking tub. Steps away from all that cool downtown Mar Vista has to offer, including coffee houses, restaurants, bars, a very cool bowling alley and a Sunday Farmer's Market. Plus the famous Venice Boardwalk and beach are just 2 miles to the west. Come and enjoy yourself!

We loved our stay and definitely would recommend staying at Mark and Andrea's most excellent place.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great. This wonderful place was clean. The location was excellent and safe with locked gates. The Hosts, Mark and Andrea were very easy to get a hold of and replied quickly to all communications.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the two most amazing hosts, Mark and Andrea Malin.

They both went way above and beyond anything we would expect. They provided us with two fridges full of cold drinks, a couple of bottles of wine, a couple of cheese and fruit platters as a snack upon our arrival.

Mark and Andrea were responsive to all our needs and our entire group were all extremely happy.

Andrea and Mark are really nice hosts and extremely good people.

We loved our stay and definitely would recommend staying at Mark and Andrea's place.

Graduation Celebration

  • 4 of 5

My family and I traveled to LA for my daughter's graduation in June 2017. We all had a great time! The property was exactly like the pictures. The decor and amenities were top notch. Andrea and Mark were very friendly and accommodating. Upon arrival, we were welcomed with a fruit and cheese tray and the refrig was stocked with beverages. That was an extra nice welcome! You won't be disappointed. I will definitely stay here again.

Fantastic space very accommodating hosts!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I have to start by congratulating hosts Andrea and Mark, they were absolutely fabulous!! very welcoming and very available with all of my family! Prompt responses and they would step by every time needed which was highly appreciated by all of our party.

We rented out the whole complex for 6 days as we were hosting a thanksgiving family gathering that was bringing together at least 4 different family groups (18 various family members)so the setup worked perfectly for us! Access to 3 different kitchens for our thanksgiving preparations was definitily key for us and we never felt tight! The houses were equipped with everything we needed and what we wouldn't find was provided by the hosts in matter of minutes! Mark generously provided us with a smoked turkey made by himself to complement our own!!!!

Location was great being so close to Venice beach and Santa Monica , provided a lot of options for our group.

You can bet that every single member of our party will absolutely recommend staying here!!

That said, I must mention the only con is the construction site right next to the house, so if you are not an early riser, it might trouble you!
