Our spacious and cozy one bedroom apartment is located just 5 blocks to the Venice Pier. We are situated in a beautiful apartment complex with great amenities. Enjoy the home or walk (or bike!) to see everything this amazing area has to offer.
Our home is a spacious 1 bedroom/1 bathroom apartment with plenty of room to spread out and make yourself at home. Its cute and bright and close to everything!
We're located on the Marina Peninsula only 5 blocks east of the Venice Pier which makes for the perfect opportunity to grab a surfboard and catch a wave.
Don't surf? Hop on one of our beach cruisers and head along the sand up to the Santa Monica Pier. Or, ride down Venice's Abbot Kinney Blvd (voted the hippest street in America by GQ magazine!) or just take a trip around the Marina del Rey Harbor, there are wonderful self guided walks to take all around us. All of these are listed and on a map found in the apartment . . . or the Venice Canals (yes, they are beautiful!) -- all just steps away.
Located off Washington Blvd. in the Marina amazing restaurants, bars, coffee shops, health food stores, yoga studios, boutiques, thrift stores are a quick 5 - 10 minute walk down the street.
We are 3 short miles to 3rd Street Promenade and the Santa Monica Pier. We are 8 miles to UCLA, and close to major highways that take you to Hollywood, Disneyland, and Downtown LA.
The apartment offers TV, high speed wireless internet, full bath, full kitchen, and balcony over looking our beautiful garden courtyard with a water feature and a pond! We offer 2 car garage parking and bikes for easy access to the beautiful city.
The kitchen offers a refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, stove, oven, microwave, toaster, french press, and all the kitchen supplies you might need. We also have a washer and dryer in our unit! Dining table is great for entertaining and makes an excellent work desk too!
The bedroom offers a very comfortable queen mattress, TV, large dressers and a very spacious walk in closet for your use.
Living room is bright with lots of windows and a beautiful view of the balcony and garden area. There is a large flat screen TV and the sofa reclines into a full size bed.
The balcony is my favorite spot! The patio is lovely. Its kind of like sitting up inside the trees. It offers outdoor table and chairs. BBQ is coming soon!
Guests have access to all the cool amenities our apartment complex has to offer. This includes: pool, jacuzzi, fitness center, tennis courts, dry cleaning services, business center (with computers and printers), sports lounge, and community BBQ area.
Interaction with Guests
I am available by phone, or text, or email for anything you might need during your stay.
LAX is only 10-15 minutes away and there's LA public transportation in front of the apartment. Also, during the summer, there's a free beach shuttle that travels around the Marina and to Santa Monica.

We ask that you do your best to remove your shoes while in the apartment.
Please use locks for the bicycles when taking them out for a spin.
Please take out garbage when leaving-- the chute is by the elevator.
Laura was an excellent host. We contacted her during our stay and she always answered within minutes. Her place is even more beautiful and spacious than in pictures. The kitchen was well equipped, there were lots of towels, plenty of room for our things, she provided bikes and beach chairs, the parking spot was huge (we had a minivan). Check in was easy, she explained everything perfectly. Both the apartment complex and the neighborhood were safe. It is really close to Venice Beach, and we biked to Santa Monica. The complex has a pool, business center and gym which we used! Overall the experience was amazing, we'd definitely recommend Laura's place!
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights while we were in between moving places. This apartment was super clean, comfortable and looks exactly as it does in the pictures. The main room is huge and there is plenty of wardrobe space if required. Laura was quick to answers any questions of ours and offered plenty of options to assist us with our needs. This apartment is in a large apartment building which is safe and in a great location by the marina.
Thanks Laura for sharing your apartment. It was great being so close to Venice Beach and of course the apartment was very clean, neat and tidy.
Vi fick en jättebra beskrivning skickad till oss en vecka innan samt bilder, kartor och instruktioner hur vi skulle gå tillväga gällande nycklar etc. Boendet överträffade våra förväntningar, allt var perfekt!
Området var mycket trevlig och välskött! Perfekt läge med närhet till Venice, Santa Monica och övriga sevärdheter i LA.
Laura was a great host. We didn't meet, but she provided detailed instructions on accessing the apartment. Place was clean, very spacious and had all the amenities -- it was exactly as described. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return!
The condo was exactly as pictured and described. It was clean, organized, and beautiful! We were 2 couples and the space felt large enough and having separate entrances to the washroom was perfect! The green sideboard is as fantastic in person as in the photos! Laura was quick to respond and although we didn't meet her in person (it was Thanksgiving day), she was very accommodating and quick to welcome us via text once we got inside. It is about 5 blocks to the beach (an easy walk), and the bikes are handy (although the locks are difficult to maneuver... but they work!). The grounds of the complex are pristine. All in all... I would stay again! Thanks so much Laura!
Laura's place was great...just as advertised. Excellent location just down the road from Venice Beach. We would definitely stay here again.
