This hip, newly furnished studio can be your ticket to being a local in sunny Marina Del Rey neighborhood in beautiful California. It's just a bike ride away from tourist attractions like the Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach and from local hot spots like the Marina, the A frame, Sunny Spot and Abbott Kinney. Location isn't the only thing this studio has going for it. It has a private gated entrance that leads you through the garden to your exclusive patio as you enter into the 480-square-foot luxury studio. It includes a granite kitchenette, slate stone bathroom and a tropical, resort style pool. With hard wood floors, leather bed and sofa, wireless internet, cable and fireplace make this studio a place you'd want to call home.. even if it's just for the weekend.
We had a tenant for 2 years and just really missed having this very peaceful, relaxing and serene space available- so we decided to go with AirBNB, so we can still enjoy it on occasion.

Rose Ann has set up this place to have all the things a traveler needs to have a great vacation.. and more. The place is easy to get to, clean, beautiful, and in a great location. She provides alot of information about the area's activities and restaurants that you feel comfortable getting around as soon as you get in! Oh and she left the most delicious muffins haha. Our only regret was not staying longer. Thank you Rose Ann for sharing your place!
Fabulous accommodations! Cozy, warm, comfortable! Rose Ann thought of everything we could need to make our stay enjoyable and hassle free. Loved the privacy. The beautiful pool, hot tub, and patio provided the perfect oasis after busy days sightseeing. 5 star rating from me. Will definitely hope to stay there on our next visit to California!
We had a wonderful stay at Rose Ann's studio. The creature comforts she provided was beyond what we expected. The bikes she kindly lent to us was a great way to see the local beaches and the house manual was full of wonderful local tips and informative maps. Perfect location. Excellent host!
This was our first airbnb stay and it was all we could have hoped! It is a beautiful, well-appointed studio, creatively decorated and furnished. As comfortable as it is lovely. Host was responsive to all our questions and requests, greeting us with a kitchenette stocked with basics as well as welcoming goodies. The garden and yard are gorgeous and add wonderful additional space, not to mention the pool, spa, fire pit and barbecue - It's all right there! Even bicycle, which we rode along the endless beach path. Truly a find in Marina Del Rey! While we never met our host, we appreciated the privacy and certainly did not feel neglected; it was just right!
The location was great - a quiet residential neighborhood but close to the attractions of Venice Beach, Marina del Rey, and major highways. The back yard bordered on a private resort. Rose Ann also made us feel welcome by providing useful amenities such as bottled water, orange juice, snacks, and Keurig coffee. The bed was very comfortable. Street parking was ample.
I had a great host who welcomed me even when I had to arrive late at night with proper instructions. Everything was right on point.
The studio is perfect for two people. Great location, comfy furniture, lots of little extras (like plenty of towels!) including a truly stellar house manual that included tips like where to eat. Not only would I highly recommend this listing, I plan to book it again myself for my next trip to the LA area!
My husband and I are young professionals (I'm a teacher and he's a Marketing director), parents and foodies. We are so fortunate to be residents of an amazing community that makes us feel like we are in a small town- not a large, urban, metropolitan city. We met over 20 years ago and have been exploring the westside together ever since. We have 2 children, a teenage daughter and 8 year old son. We love to travel and enjoy VERY GOOD food. We've been to China, which has been our favorite destination so far and Greece, Italy, Great Britain and Russia.
We look forward to your visit with us, so we can share our community of excellent restaurants, great hangouts and a relaxing vacation- where you too can experience the Westside, like a local.
