I have a lovely 1 bedroom apartment to offer in a terrific part of town. Please take a few moments to review the details below...
--> Fresh sheets & bathroom towels
--> A customized (website hidden) Map that includes everything awesome in the surround area
--> Coffee (most of the time)
//////////////// About the neighborhood:
Mar Vista is very much so an 'up and coming' neighborhood that's undergone a lot of gentrification lately. It's wedged between Venice and Culver City (to the West and East), and Marina del Rey & Santa Monica (to the South and North). Easy access to all of these areas of West LA.
Walking distance to coffee, bars and restaurants. If you have no car, fear not. There are buses that can take you virtually anywhere you need to get (even straight up to the Getty). Cheap/easy cab ride pretty much anywhere too.
Sunday mornings: The Mar Vista Farmers Market is the gem of the neighborhood. You'll find food vendors, the freshest fruits and veggies, and every once in awhile - live music. Definitely do not miss this...
//////////////// A little about the building:
It's a small 10 unit complex that was built back in the 1950's. It's not much to look at from the outside, but it's kept it's 1950's charm on the inside (see kitchen and bathroom pics). I really enjoy living here, and spend much of my time in Venice (for beach and activities) and Culver City (for bars and restaurants). Neighbors are very friendly and you'll find the interior decor quite charming.
When I moved to this apartment I ditched the television in exchange for something more interesting: a fish tank in an old television box. If you stay more than 1 night, I ask that you drop a piece of food in the tank (very simple).
Please send me a message with any questions!

Marks apt was awesome just the pefect place! Love the aquarium ! He had everything all set up could not ask for better place !
My stay at Mark's place was wonderful. Felt very at home and comfortable. It was clean and organized. Would stay here again.
Mark was a great communicator and his place was as pictured. My biggest issue was that he was out of town on camping so I could not get in touch with him when we realized he forgot to leave us a key. My girlfriend and I had been out all day and came back tired to this. Luckily, there was a window open and my girl is tiny enough to fit through the window and open from the inside. Unfortunately, due to this experience I cannot recommend this place to anyone.
Good location to visit Santa Monica, Venice and Malibu in a quiet residencial area. The apartment is really confortable and clean. Mark was available and helpfull at any time. I would repeat again!
Good location and nice apartment!!
The only thing that could be improved is the cleanness.
Mark's place was great. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. He was also very friendly and easy to communicate with.
Mark was a great host. Upon confirming my stay he was in constant contact with me about my arrival and shared a (website hidden) Doc with me that had all the information I needed for my stay. WiFi password, information about the area, and even included a map of all the nearby spots to visit for food and drinks. Had insider tips only someone that lived in the neighborhood would have. Made me feel like I was a local to Mar Vista. Felt very at home and comfortable staying there. Mark even gave me a partial refund for not having the place in perfect order when I got there, which I didn't mind one bit. Would stay here again, definitely.
Mark was a very kind and considerate host. He accepted a last minute check-in and made sure that my boyfriend and I were comfortable and happy with the reservation.
Outstanding host! Great communication, clear instructions, very clean, just an overall fantastic experience!
