Other Things to Note
We are LITERALLY a three min walk to the beach!
There are restaurants in walking distance, and I have a ' Nina's Bible' with my recommended places to go in the neighborhood & in L.A.
1. Smoking is NOT allowed. Do not dispose cigarettes anywhere in the property.
2. Pets are NOT allowed.
3. Please wash sand off feet with hose on the Northwest side of the house before entering.
Perfect spot, as-advertised! We stayed for a week, with walking adventures every day. The "Cow's End" just a few blocks away sets the tone for the neighborhood full of locals (even though people like us are invading their beach too :)
Nina had a very helpful book of local tips, but she was there herself and gave us so many ideas we hardly used the book...
We kept the double doors open, looking out onto the charming patio. The bamboo behind gives just enough privacy from the street without blocking the light. The kitchen is well-appointed for its size, so even though we did most of our eating out, we bought some groceries nearby and had options at home.
Most days we walked down the beach to Venice, enjoying the circus. Abbot Kinney is also a comfortable walk, and if you bike to the 3rd street promenade, they have free/cheap valet bike parking.
We'd stay here again, thanks Nina!
Access was super easy. great welcome pack in the room with water, snacks, beer, wine etc.
Nina was very helpful and on hand for anything I needed. Great advice all round on the area - restaurants, bars etc
The apartment was in an ideal location - approx 1 block from the beach. Very clean with comfy bed, kitcheneotte and bathroom. My only negative would be that it's not the lightest apartment given large bamboo plant outside the front. However, I wasn't spending too much time indoors so didn't really matter.
I would recommend it for sure
Great place, great location and great people. My parents stayed here for a few days and they really enjoyed their time. Thank you!
Stefan and Nina are very nice hosts! Nina was very friendly and helpful, told what to do and were to go in the city. The apartments was 100 % like as described, little bungalow with patio just 2 blocks ( 3 min. walk) from the beach, and complimentary bikes ( which usually costs 7$ /hour for rent). Thanks for welcomed wine and beer and for late check out. Spend 5 days like at home, I highly recommend this host and this apartment for rent! This was my first experience at airb&b, so I very excited.
We really liked this apartment. We even stayed an extra night!! The location is great and the room is decorated wonderfully! Make sure you pull the shower lever all the way out though or it seems like the shower doesn't work! It's still not the best shower but it's enough. Only minor negative was that you can sometimes hear the guests upstairs quite loudly however this made no difference to the quality of our stay and we would definitely stay here again in a heart beat!!
Stunning apartment which is amazingly close to the beach! Lots of cleans towels when needed. Very comfy and handy to restaurants and bars. It was the perfect size for me and my partner. We would definitely go again! Nina was a great host.
The bungalow was very nice and you couldn't ask for a better location. Everything was nice and neat with a certain hip ambiance about it. Unfortunately we ran into some very cold weather but thank goodness the hostess had prepared for that with a very nice stand alone heater that kept us toasty warm all night. Parking can be a pain but there's no use on beating a dead horse; when push came to shove we parked in front of Stefan's garage a few times and that took care of that. We definitely recommend this listing and will stay there next time we're in Marina del Rey to visit my California daughters!
