  • My boyfriend and I looked at a lot of places on airbnb and we're really glad we chose this one. It was clean, airy, comfortable, within walking distance of the beach and the canals, and convenient to stores and restaurants. The kitchen is well-stocked and well-laid out, and we found it very easy to cook during our stay, which was great. We were also happy to find a standing fan, which cooled the bedroom down perfectly at night, in the closet (+ two beach chairs which we never got to use). Would stay again!

  • Good, short walk to the beach...longer walk to Venice Boardwalk(with a 2 year old) parking can be difficult but we always lucked out.
    Would definitely return!!
    The wine hit the spot!

  • It was great to have Thomasina and Steve meet us there at the bungalow. So warm and welcoming. The place is exactly what you see in the pictures. Only a block from the beach. This was a trip with my 16 yr old great niece. She like staying at the bungalow and the beach more than visiting other areas of LAX. I would definitely recommend this place to others.

  • I rented the place for my mother who was visiting and can be cranky and hard to please, but she had a really pleasant stay. Everything was clean, and there was tea, coffee, and even wine set out for us. We sat out on the porch almost every morning for breakfast and watched the hummingbirds flit around. She loved all the vegetation and that it was walking distance to the beach, restaurants and short drive to the airport. We were there on a Monday, which is street cleaning on one side so parking was a little dodgy but other than that it was a perfect place to stay. Thomasina was also really responsive and coordinated everything so check in/out was super convenient.

  • I rented the marina bungalow for quick stay for my family. Thomasina and he husband were great hosts! The bungalow was very cozy and clean. The location was perfect- it's quick walk to the beach and on a quite street. I would recommend the bungalow to friends and family. My family plans to use the bungalow for future visits!

  • Stayed in the lovely Marina Del Rey cottage for two nights. It's cozy & clean. Surprisingly a quiet neighborhood for being one block from the beach. We walked everywhere (Abbot Kinney St. Is adorable and has the best places to eat). The bed was ridiculously comfortable & I felt so well rested. The host even left us creamer & coffee in the pantry. Not to mention a welcoming bottle of pinot noir when we arrived! My favorite. Seriously was an awesome getaway. I've been telling my friends all about it. We rollerbladed in Venice Beach and I only took a cab once to go to a soul/funk night in LA. Such a fun trip!

  • After a long flight, what a relief it was to pull into Venice Beach and find myself at Steve and Thomasina's. Steve greeted me warmly, and though she was out of town, Thomasina and kept in touch via text. The place was stunning, clean but not sterile, you could feel that a lot of went into it. Comfortable bed, great shower, cool living room and plenty of coffee in the kitchen. There's a little porch for reading or sitting or having a glass of wine with the other guests or their friendly neighbor. The beach is just steps away, as are some fun bars, restaurants, coffee shops. Perfect place for a solo trip, romantic getaway, or even a place to bring a kid or two. Without a doubt, I'll be back.

I am a wife and mother of 3 girls and a just became a Grandmother for the second time to a beautiful little baby girl. We love to travel and do often!! We currently live in Redondo Beach after just moving from Chicago. When I am not at the Beach in the Marina I rent out my space to someone else to enjoy. I want everyone to have the most wonderful stay at our Vacation Rental and enjoy the natural beauty that abounds. I want your stay to be comfortable and enjoy all the ammenities of home except without the stress. I absolutely love the beach which is why you too will love our place!! I Love California and the sunshine!!!!!! Have a fantastic day!!!
