The location is INCREDIBLE. Everything you need for a beach getaway is here. Enjoy the refreshing ocean breeze throughout this spacious, MODERN, TRANQUIL and spotless 1 bedroom apartment with lots of natural, defused sunlight. One guest review called it a gem (with a million dollar view)!!
Relax on one of the LARGEST PATIOS in all of Marina del Rey; over-sized lounge pillows, heat lamps, luxury eco-friendly synthetic grass and outdoor couch. The BREATH-TAKING balcony casts quite a view and overlooks the boats/water in this wonderful SECURITY BUILDING on the Marina.
It's an extremely PRIVATE and very SAFE space with one reserved spot in garaged parking. This is an relaxed, eco-friendly home with a reclaimed dining room table recovered from a Brazilian coffee factory and also a brand new, deluxe sleeper couch, upholstered in re-purposed Army tent canvas with an organic mattress. The space is warm and inviting for an intimate chat, relaxed dining or for curling up with a good book.
Walking distance - just a few block from the beach, the kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, new microwave, new dishwasher, oven, coffee maker, luxury blender, dishes, glasses, flatware and even some cooking spices. All linens are provided; sheets and bath/beach towels and a guest iron. Cable with Showtime, Netflix, Roku and Wireless Internet. COOL in the evening, its even a little chilly and requires no air-conditioning and has forced air heat.
Count on a lovely, extremely clean and safe space to relax in. This is a very friendly and quiet area. In addition, the outside deck is absolutely the star of the show and INCREDIBLE.

This end of the beach has wide, clean beaches and very few people around. To find friendly people to play with, just walk down the beach to Venice.
• Great restaurants, bars and coffee shops and live music on Washington Blvd or Abbot Kinney: Gjelina, Tasting Kitchen, Hal's, Lilly's, Primitivo, Other Room, Abbot's Pizza, Chaya, Library Ale House, Venice Beach Wines, Oscar's, Superba, etc... FYI: Abbot Kinney in Venice, where eclectic art, dining, shopping, and people create this famous street's hip vibe.
• The Marina Del Rey Canals and Venice Canals are hidden treasures just a ten minute walk away, with rare water birds, indigenous flowers, and a walking path that runs more than a mile. The quaint, arched bridges over the water are reminiscent of Venice, Italy.
• Fabulous location for anyone who enjoys to be by the water. This apartment is 10 min walk to the beach and a 25 minute walk to the pier and only a 10 min drive to Venice/Santa Monica nightlife center.
Also, the location is easy and quick to get to from LAX...for those without car rentals, airport transfer can be made online with Super Shuttle. :-)
• The atmosphere here is peaceful, with no smoking or partying. Please let me know a little about yourself and how long you would like to stay.
* Airbnb Hosts, I'd be interested in swapping places for 1-2 weeks. Contact me and perhaps we can work out a plan.
L.A. secret jewel - Marina del Rey translates from the Spanish as “Harbor of the King”. I treasure the tranquil and relaxing seaside lifestyle. Plus, if you love the water as much as I do, Marina del Rey is truly the place to be.
MDR is a wonderfully safe oasis; hard to imagine that this small yacht harbor and beach front community is right in L.A.
Tropical street names like BoraBora, Bali and Fiji Way reflect the community's casual feel. Life here is filled with gorgeous sunsets, surfing, boogie boarding, cycling, swimming, kayaking and plus, we have one the nicest beaches on the West Coast.
Marina del Rey beauty is that it less than four miles from LAX, walking distance to Venice Beach, and less than 10 minutes to Santa Monica. I love biking everywhere when I can, there's no better area in Los Angeles than this.
This is a real oasis in the heart of LA. Super quiet and elegantly done, it's a great base for exploring. A delightful 10 minute walk to the beach, and gorgeous views of the Marina from what must be the largest deck in Marina Del Rey. Parking and driving around was as convenient as can be, and you are a short hop from dozens of cool places in Venice Beach. Biking would be great to get around to most places.
Karen was a great host and everything was easy and well done.
Karen isa Great host, very accommodating, she allowed us to stay an extra hour. Her apartment is beautiful and very clean.
I couldn't ask for a better first experience with airbnb. Karen is incredible! She is kind and amazingly helpful. The place is beautifully designed and extremely comfortable. My wife and I had a wonderful relaxing extended weekend on the marina not only because of the location but because of Karen's hospitality. I couldn't recommend it more!
We loved the apartment. It is nice and bright, fulfilled with care. Karen is a perfect host, very responsive. Perfect view, calm district, close to beaches and good restos. We definitely recommend to stay at this place in LA
Our first experience with airbnb took us to Marina del Rey, CA, and it was excellent thanks to our excellent host Karen.
Karen's home became our home for almost 4 weeks during December 2013. We appreciated very much that Karen was always available to answer questions and provide suggestions of what to visit and where to dine.
Her apartment was equipped with lots of love (she even set it up with Christmas decoration for us!), was super clean and had all you may need at home away from home starting with new kitchen appliances, cleaning products, to beach towels, bikes and not to forget her vast tea selection ; ) And on top of that she encouraged us to just go ahead and use everything! The apartment has an amazing balcony and view on the marina which we really enjoyed every single morning but one thing to keep in mind is that there is limited sunlight during the winter months (we stayed there in December). The location was very good: only 5 minutes by foot to the beach and 10-15 minutes by bike to Venice and Santa Monica and some 7 minutes by car from all the great and various restaurants and coffe shops on Abbott Kinney.
We had a lovely experience and were very happy to get to know Karen.
Until next time... Wishing you much success ; )

We felt like we were "home". We enjoyed everything about K's the warmth of her home, the view, the location and more! K is a special person and her home reflects her. Our stay was relaxing and filled with fun. The central location allowed us to easily explore the wonders of the LA !!
I spent more or less a week at Karen's place. I really had a great time there. The apartment is perfectly located and super clean. I just needed some time to relax myself after a super busy month and this was the perfect option. The terrace has an amazing view on the marina:-)) Karen was very accommodating and helpful! Thank you very much Karen!
Karen house is a perfect place to stay in Los Angeles, very quiet, nice view, area and ambient. Perfect place for a time with myself and keep enjoying the tranquility that I found there. By the way, there is a vibrant energy at the Karen place. I spent a great time and was a perfect choice for me! Thanks Karen, I hope come back.
Karen was so kind and accommodating and her place is comfortable, safe, clean and in a great location. The patio is a perfect place to sit and read a book, write or just gaze out at the sail boats. It is also perfectly located . . . walking distance to coffee, food and beach yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle.
Thank you Karen for providing and sharing your home!! I look forward to talking with you in the future!!
Great place, exactly what the doctor ordered. Clean, safe and tranquil. I needed a home away from home to relax for a minute and this place did exactly that. Love the deck, very relaxing. THank you thank you thank you, please know I will be back very very soon!. The bed slept great too, very comfortable.
