About this listing

Our oasis. Enjoy peace and tranquility in our very private and self contained guest house. Lay out by the pool, take the bikes out for a short ride to the waters edge or a 3 minute walk to some of the area's best eateries. A foodies paradise.

The space

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 quartz kitchenette, tiled bathroom and a tropical, resort style pool. With hard wood floors, leather bed and sofa, wireless internet, cable and space heater 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.

We love this space and we are sure you will too!

Great stay! Great hospitality, place and the location is exactly where you want it to be! Everything is right around the corner, and Rose has a large amount of tourist information available. Privacy is taken very highly, I think we have seen two glimpses of Rose, which is also a pity as we could not thank her in person. The garden and pool is cleaned on a regular basis. We where pleasantly surprised to find some fresh fruit, and a half stocked refrigerator! With other words, one of the best airbnb's we experienced.

Rose Anns place was nice and clean. It is fairly close to the beach, so manageable to bike or walk, but with kids I still would recommend to have a car. I did not use the salt water main pool because it was a bit cold in LA, and not the hot jacuzzi either because it was in use by the other people staying at the next door apartment on the time that I had time to use it (it takes a couple of hours to heat up so any use must be planned). The big bed was very comfortable for my daughter and me, but my 14-years old son complained about the air mattrass that was provided for him. It lost air and made him sweat. Rose Ann brought us some groceries which were highly appreciated, and her hospitality was great. We could not use the child bike for my 9-year old daughter because it had a flat tyre, but we would have, if it had been in better shape. The adult bikes appeared inThe studio has very nice decor, and it has everything that you need stocked (shampoo, coffee, snacks, sun screen cream etc). It was nice to sit outside in the garden for a little sun in the morning, We would like to stay there again!

Loved the house. It was bigger than we expected. The hot tub was fantastic. Check in/out was easy. It was private, but Rose Ann was very responsive when we reached out. Great location. Only complaint was that the bikes had flat tires and the pump was broken.

Rose Ann's studio was exactly as posted in the listing. We felt like we had privacy even though it is in their backyard. The pool area is beautiful. We were able to ride bikes or walk to most places we went (Venice Beach, Santa Monica, In 'n Out Burger) even though we had rented a car. It was nice to have a small cooking area for our short stay, and the pastries and coffee selection were a bonus.

Rose Ann User Profile

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.
