One of the nicest places I have ever been to

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lisa's place for 3 nights and after arriving we immediately felt at home. The apartment is located in such a great area and you have direct access to the big sandy beach. The water is literally 2 min away from the the patio. Two things that truly stood out where the cleanliness of the apartment and Lisa as the best host you can imagine. She looked after us, provided us with great recommendations and is just the friendliest person. There is a space where you can leave your car and some nice places for having breakfast & dinner nearby.

No question that you will have a great time if you stay at Lisa's place.

Thank you again Lisa for having us!

Wonderful beachfront location!

  • 5 of 5

On the sand! We loved being right on the beach. The volleyball courts and the bike path were right out the back door. I loved the fact the beach here was almost empty, kind of a rarity in California Playa del Rey had a number of restaurants, bars and coffee shops within walking distance. Venice, Santa Monica and Marina del Rey were also just minutes away. Although we could have spent the whole week at the beach and not gone anywhere.

We flew in from out of state, so I loved the fact it was so close to LAX. When it was time to leave we were at the airport in minutes and didn't have to worry about LA traffic. You will hear jet noise from the airport, but after a few days I hardly noticed it.

The duplex was a nice size for the four of us. Everything was clean and in great condition. We didn't use the kitchen, but it is well stocked if you plan to cook and eat in. It was great to have an off street parking space.

Lisa was easy to work with and very helpful. She checked in with us multiple times to make sure we were enjoying our stay and was always offering helpful local advice. She let us use her beach chairs and bogey boards. I will definitely stay again when in LA.

Beautiful and relaxing trip

  • 5 of 5

Owner: Lisa was fantastic and extremely responsive! Any question I had she answered, she also suggested many places we would never find out on google. All her advice helped out so much, we even schedule out activies and match it with the days she think will be least busy and I couldn't tell you how smooth that made our trip.

House: The house is gorgeous, it has clean, modern, shabby sleek charm. The house is located right off the beach so it is just foots away from sands, I read a review talking about the sand dune, but I have to say, it really does protect you from the harsh winds from the ocean, after a couple of days I really appreciated the sand dune, also Lisa suggested to get a board and slide down the the kids on the sand dune and omg it was the highlight of the trip for the kids! They wanted to go out every morning to slide down the sand. The only thing I would say is I wish there was handsoap, lol that's all I got since the house was already perfect.

Location: the location was fantastic, footsteps to the beach, the beach is extremely clean, close to a few playground if you have kids, 24 mins to Venice beach, 26 mins to Santa Monica and only 10 mins to Lax!!!!

Just an beautiful house and fantastic location and amazing owner, I will be back for sure!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your stay! I’m so glad to hear you had such a fantastic vacation. As far as the soap… I always have extras underneath the sink, I wish you would have called me and I could have explain to you where to find extra. Looking forward to having you visit again.

Fun house on the Beach!

  • 4 of 5

Overall very pleasant stay. The place was very comfortable and attractive.

Lisa the owner could not have been nicer and more accommodating. The only unexpected issue was the sand dune which blocked the view of the ocean, and the volley ball players in front of the house. Nevertheless we

enjoyed our daily walks on the beach, and would recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Louise- It was so great hosting you and getting to know your family. Im so glad you had such a fabulous time at my place! About the sand dune... We were lucky this year to have had it erected by the city, down by the shoreline for a few months during winter, it protects our properties. I always disclose the dune to all prospective guests, during those weeks. Most guests have enjoyed watching the professionals play on the court during their occasional practice sessions. Im sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy watching.
