The Space

Quiet Private Room VILLA IMPERIA
in Safe Aria of MARINA DEL REY
with the Bike Path and Beaches

The room has a kitchenette so you can have your breakfast in your pajamas at 3 AM or 3 PM. Every day the fridge is refilled and the room is cleaned, unlike in a separate apartment :-)

As one of my guests wrote:

"During all my reservations through the site, Zhanna's place is my favorite so far. Everything was perfect there, no complaints at all. Firstly the location, Marina is a perfect location, near the 90 (which takes you everywhere in the city), but also only few minutes to the Ocean, Venice and Abbott Kinney, but with the advantage of being away from the hustle and bustle. The place is beautiful, the room / apartment is impeccable, clean, simple and effective, with the largest small good breakfast in Santa Monica every morning (and refilled every day). Everything is made to make you really think that you have your own little home there. Zhanna is also a really a nice person, it's up to you to choose your kind of holiday: if you are sociable, she is very happy to listen and discuss with you; if you are more independent and discreet, no problem, you have the keys, you are at your home. In resume, a great experience, and a great time." Offner

Indeed, the room has everything you need, and more: private shower (towels included) and toilet, sink with faucet, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, electrical tea pot, food storage, dining area, TV with satellite and blu-ray DVD player, internet.

You will be just a short drive from LAX, the city’s most popular clubs, shops and restaurants and the coastal fun of Santa Monica and Venice. You'll ride off on a bike right to the Bike Path that will lead you to the beaches along the ocean.

Discover Marina del Rey - the ideal home base for your LA stay, with beautiful coastline and a carefree attitude.

Marina del Rey is a seaside town on the West Side of Los Angeles and is the largest small yacht harbor in the world. It’s just minutes from all the excitement of Los Angeles, Venice Beach and Santa Monica.

The home really is a quiet oasis to rest and renew, close to fresh ocean air - it's only minutes to the beaches. Our street always has a light breeze, it's never too hot or too cold in Marina del Rey.

We have a free and ample street parking with no restrictions, except for cleaning: on Wednesday one side of the street, on Thursday - another, from 10 am to 12 noon. When one side is being cleaned, the other one is available for parking. For occasional driving check out Zipcar: drive as much or as little as you like, and pay as you go.

You will stay in a large freshly renovated room in townhouse. It's a fragrance-free house! All cleaning stuff is unscented.

There is your own bathroom (toilet, shower and towels), sink with faucet, kitchenette and a little dining area in the room with dinning table and chairs, coffee maker, tea pot, refrigerator, toaster, microwave, china, etc.

There are an iron and ironing board in the room. Save space in your bag and don't bring your hair fan, there is one in the room!

Breakfast is included: Bagel or muffin, cream cheese, coffee, tea, cream, oatmeal.

King bed, flat screen TV, Blu-Ray, Satellite and Wi-(website hidden) neighborhood close to all: boats, beach, restaurants, market, movies, shops, bookstore, coffee houses, LA nightlife -- the list goes on...

We have a very special unique movie theatre, the innovative AMC Dine-In provides the comfort of the living room in a movie theater: you can order food and drinks, including beer and wine, while sitting in reclining leather seats and watching Real 3D on a big screen.

Walk to one of the world’s largest man-made recreational marinas The Fisherman Village where you can jet ski, kayak, paddle board, sport fishing and dine on the boardwalk or take a dinning boat tour.

You can rent a bike and ride along the ocean on the bike path. Marvin Braude Bike Path is 3 blocks from my place, 5 minutes walk. The path will take you: if you ride left on the path (south), you'll get to Fisherman Village and will go on along the ocean in Playa del Rey beach; if you turn right on the path (north), you'll get to Venice and Santa Monica.

Bicycles can be rented in 2 stores, both 20 minutes walking distance:
Daniels Bicycle Rentals and Sales in Fisherman's Village

Open 7 days - Call for hours

  • Zhanna has been a great host. The room was big, clean and comfortable; and has been kept incredibly clean and tidy throughout my stay. I have felt welcome and had a great experience.

  • Grandisima anfritiona y perfecto lugar. Muy recomendable si quereis un lugar tranquilo, cerca del aeropuerto (LAX) y la playa.

    Zhanna se portó muy amablemente a pesar de que estuvimos muy poco tiempo (a penas para dormir una noche). Una habitación perfecta con todas las comodidades.

    Muy recomendable, aunque es importante tener coche.

  • Was lovely. Great location, fantastic room and wonderfully warm welcome! Highly recommended! Thanks very much! : )

  • Had a great stay at Zhanna's place. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Zhanna was good to deal with and very helpful. I would recommend staying there.

  • This was my first Air BnB experience and it defiantly started with a great one. The host was so nice and helpful and the room was really clean and tidy. She provides a breakfast in the kitchenette and the little bathroom attached to the room was an added bonus. There is also a balcony with a really nice garden attached and it is very private. Easy to go and hire a bicycle and ride down to Vanice beach or near by cafes. All in all, loved our stay and recommend for anyone.

  • My wife and I had a good experience staying in Marina del Rey with Zhanna. She was very friendly to us and provided a clean, quiet accommodation. She provided clean bathroom towels each day and removed the trash from the kitchen basket. The room, adjoining kitchenette, and bathroom were very clean. She provided us with coffee, breakfast cereal, milk, and bagels. We had an easy time each day finding a parking spot in her quiet neighborhood. Shopping, restaurants, and Panera Bread store was within walking distance. We were 4 blocks from the marina where we walked to watch thew sunset.

  • We loved the space. It is a very nice condominium with pool, very clean well located nearby LAX airport. It is not just a room. She offered a small and well organized kitchen with everything. I would like to stay more days.

  • The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.

  • Pros:
    This is a super-cute room in a lovely apartment complex--I felt like I was being assaulted by flowers every time I came or left. Much more pleasant than a generic hotel.
    In-room fridge, microwave, and dishes made breakfast and snacks very easy.
    Grocery store, coffee shop, etc. within 5-minute walk.

    Cons:
    There's not much noise insulation from the rest of the house. There was no unusual noise; but normal conversation, plumbing noise, etc. carry pretty loudly.
    Parking is tricky on street-sweeping days (two days a week).
    Bed was okay, but definitely below the quality of what you'd get in even a standard motel.

    Overall, a really pleasant place to stay and a great value.

  • We stayed there for few days and we enjoyed our stay. The location is fantastic . There is a grocery store right on the corner and there are many rental bike shops nearby so you can walk to the bike shop and rent one if you like.

    The location is also very accessible to highways . We had to drive to irvine and Anaheim and it was easy to get back to the house.

    The neighborhood is very quiet and the beds are extremely comfortable and we got very good night sleep. The room is also very clean.
    Everyone else has talked about the breakfast materials that Zhana provides and I can't agree more . It was really good that we could make breakfast and drink hot tea ( she puts all flavors of tea in the basket , green , white , black , orange ..) and have instant oatmeal . This way we could start our day earlier instead of wasting an hour to go to a breakfast place.

    They also have two lovely dogs and my wife was looking forward to seeing them every time we would enter or leave the house :)

    Zhana is a very good host and we are telling all out friends about it and next time we visit Los Angeles will for sure try and see if the room is available for short stay

    Thank you Zhana .

About
I am a costumer and a soft sculpture artist. I love traveling, gardening, cooking, and felting. I love animals, especially canines - wolves and dogs. I am excited to open up my home to visitors as I love to meet different people from all corners of the world. I love living in Marina del Rey. It epitomizes everything I love about life. The ocean, art, access to great restaurants, and scenic walks, and the diverse culture. I thoroughly enjoy having guests, and feel that everyone I meet has a way of enriching my live. Meeting someone new and hearing their story can be just as entertaining and interesting as watching a great movie. The restaurants in my neighborhood are amazing. You can find just about any type of food you are in the mood for. All within close walking distance. Most of my regular places to visit are not very far away. I appreciate a sunset walk to the Fisherman Village, a bike ride to the Santa Monica Pier, camping at Big Sur and the National Parks. There is lots of free fun to be had in and around Marina del Rey. Here's a list of the local events that I love to partake in with my friends: concerts on the Santa Monica Pier, the Abbot Kinney Festival, The Venice Canal Holiday Boat Parade, The Venice Carnival, The Festival of the Chariots, The Marina Boat Parade, The Marina 4th of July Fireworks and Concerts in Burton Chase Park. How blessed I am to live in Marina del Rey. Hope you enjoy your visit as much as I do living here. Wherever you stay I hope you thoroughly enjoy your visit to this wonderful place I call home!
