Waterfront Near Venice/Santa Monica

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Fiji Way, Marina del Rey, CA 90292, United States

The Space

The marina ocean view from the balcony of this spacious, brand new apartment has pelicans, sea gulls and sea lions, oh my. This newly renovated, luxurious yet intimate apartment complex is packed with amenities that will leave you wondering if you are staying at the Westin or a W Hotel as you pull in to an entrance with lighted royal palms at this exclusive Marina del Rey address. Extremely romantic, peaceful, and quiet yet close (10 min from LAX airport) to Santa Monica/Venice and accessible to freeway access that will get you anywhere in L.A.

Whether staying in Los Angeles for business or pleasure, you will be centrally located and a short distance to nearly every major attraction the city has to offer all while enjoying an ocean marina view. So centrally located in fact, that the StarLine Tours Hop-on Hop-off double decker tour bus drive past our place and just added a stop next door to us at the Fisherman' Village so that you can easily and affordably explore L.A. Treat your inner child to a day at Disneyland, or for a more adrenaline packed day, ride 100+mph roller coasters at Magic Mountain. To surf, hop on the Pacific Coast Highway as you drive along the coast of Santa Monica to catch some waves on Malibu Beach then later stop by Santa Monica's famous 3rd Street Promenade for a bite to eat and some shopping. For the glamorous side of L.A., get pictures of the Hollywood sign before hitting up Universal Studios then walk along the stars and handprints of Hollywood's famous actors along Hollywood Boulevard before finishing off the night clubbing on Sunset Boulevard. If you feel like staying local in Marina del Rey, rent a bike, catch the local bus or short cab/car ride to the nearby action packed areas such as Venice Beach, The Santa Monica Pier, or Abbot Kinney (in Venice) where you can sip an artisanal latte; keep your eyes peeled while celebrity spotting at Inteligensia Coffee where the best baristas are poached from around the country.

This new apartment is loaded with all high-end amenities to guarantee you and your guests a comfortable stay. We listed the apartment as accommodating 2, but if you have children or extra guests in your party, we have an elevated dual layer, Queen size self-inflating air bed mattress topped with Sateen sheets and hypoallergenic down alternative comforter. There is a beautiful new shopping plaza within walking distance with a fantastic assortment of restaurants, post office, FedEx, banks, etc. including a large grocery store if you would like to cook or (email hidden) sure to check out the new fire pit that overlooks the marina located in the north building. Finish your evening off with a glass of wine while sitting in a cabana enjoying the sunset view over the ocean water.

From the marina's ocean water view from our balcony you can dine al fresco on a 100+ foot patio while surfing the internet over a secure high-speed WiFi connection, relax and read a book, use the new Masterbuilt smoker to prepare lunch or head downstairs to bbq or take a dip in the complex's heated pool for year round swimming or if you are feeling adventurous, rent a paddle board next door to say hello to the neighborhood seals. You will be located just a few hundred feet from Fisherman's Village that has many amazing restaurant choices, bicycle rentals (great for peddling own to the Venice and Santa Monica boardwalk), fishing tours, as well as daylight and nighttime party and romantic sunset yacht cruises. Get a tan and some exercise while riding along the famous Marina del Rey bicycle trail next to our complex located in the quite protected wet lands that leads all the way from Malibu to Redondo Beach.

Have a great trip and we hope you enjoy it here as much as we do :)

  • Great location! Great condo! Highly recommended! My wife and I stayed 4 nights in March. We met Chris at the condo to get the key. He was super nice and helpful. He showed us around the complex and gave great tips on where to eat. The condo is very comfortable, nicely decorated and clean. The bed was super comfy. We spent a lot of time hanging out on the balcony overlooking the marina and pool area -- very relaxing. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of Marina del Rey, but if you're so inclined, you're not far from Venice, Santa Monica or Culver City. Also very close to LAX. We would definitely stay there again.

  • Danielle and Chris were wonderful hosts. The location of their apartment was perfect for our visit to Marina Del Rey while we visited our daughter. Their apartment was beautiful and located right on the marina. It was very comfortable and well appointed. They left very clear instructions on how to access the apartment, register our vehicle for guest parking, etc. They also left good information on local things to do. Even though they were out of town on travel during our visit, they were readily available by phone to answer any questions we had. There is a walking/biking path that goes right by their complex. My wife and I started our days with a walk down the path to the beach and back every morning. There is a place to rent bikes right down the street for those who want to ride bikes. The free parking with the apartment was also a plus. The hotels in Marina Del Rey charge at least $14/day for parking and most of the restaurants around the marina also charge for parking.
    Danielle and Chris’s apartment will be our place of choice to stay during future visits to our daughter.

  • We had a fantastic stay at Danielle and Chris's apartment in Marina del Rey. We really wanted a few days of relaxation and this was the perfect place and apartment to do that in. The apartment has everything you will need for your stay, including a washer and dryer. The place was clean and tidy and Danielle and Chris were only too happy to show us around the apartment and the complex when we arrived, and had great local recommendations. We would not hesitate to stay here again and recommend to friends!

  • Chris and Danielle were amazing hosts and their place is very nice. The facilities of the complex are top notch including a huge gas fire pit, gym, pools, and brand new bbqs. I loved how easy is was to run to the beach as there is a trail that begins in their parking lot.

    I would definitely stay here again and they had everything that you need and more for a great stay in their apartment. Chris even recorded the BCS Football Championship Game for me to watch because I told him I was going to miss it due to work.

  • Danielle's place was really great. Everything is setup for a perfect getaway. Easy parking setup. Nice fully stocked kitchen. Poolside view. Big patio. Nice bed. Very good location in proximity of the beach and restaurants, shopping, groceries. I live nearby and needed a place in a few hours and Danielle was happy to oblige. Definitely would stay again!

  • We had a lovely two-night stay at Danielle and Chris' condo and appreciated them accommodating a last-minute booking. The location is great, a 10-15 min. walk to a private beach in Santa Monica and close to lots of restaurants, but a car makes life easier. The condo itself is spacious and just as lovely as it looks in the photos, and the condo complex has lots of amenities like a pool, gym, bbq and even an awesome outdoor firepit area. Would recommend this to anyone!

  • Chris was a wonderful host and we really enjoyed our stay. He was quick to respond and easy to deal with. The apartment was wonderful and had a great view! The location is prime! Chris was very helpful and gave us lots of great suggestions of places to eat and things to do. We will definitely stay at his apartment next time we are in town.

  • Danielle and Chris were very responsive and generous, they even let us check in early early. WOw, that was a gift in itself! And they left lots of chocolate, yum :) Very well-appointed abode with a stunning view. Prime location with prestigious shopping w/in 1 mi. and all other conveniences as well (Starbucks, Organic grocery). Their instructions were also clear and organized. Looking forward to our next stay.

  • We loved staying at Chris's place! Marina del Ray is beautiful and a quick bike ride away from the beach. The apartment felt like home right away and we loved sitting on the porch, cooking dinner, and exploring the area. Chris was very responsive and left us detailed information and welcome kit that helped us get acclimated. Staying here felt like a vacation, with the conveniences of home. I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area for a short or longer stay.

    December 2013
  • Chris's apartment is just as pictured -- modern, comfortable, and in the perfect location. It was a pleasure to stay there!

About
Like many of you, we love to travel. We are all about trying out new things and going to new places and meeting new faces. We looked high and low for our home and after 12 years of living in L.A. I think we found the most peaceful spot in the city that is still near the action without the congestion. Danielle grew up as a traveler in an expatriate family in Indonesian and Singapore as a child and moved to Florida for high school and then Seattle, Washington for college; while Chris live in Phoenix, Arizona until he was 15 and moved to Salem, Oregon before moving to Eugene, Oregon for college. We can't live without new adventures, our laptops, iPhones, dessert and at all costs avoiding ordering from plastic laminated menus at chain restaurants. Favorite movies (this is constantly changing as I LOVE movies): The Big Lebowski, Shawshank Redemption, Step Brothers, Usual Suspects, Amores Perros, etc. Also must include some TV: Game of Thrones and Homeland. Life motto: LIfe is always tastes sweeter when with the people you love and Don't be afraid to go out on a limb because that's where the fruit is
