All 4 of my listings, located next to one another, are immaculate. They are METICULOUSLY cleaned in between each and every guest. Our fine bedsheets are pressed and every nook and cranny is scrubbed clean as one might find in a 5-star luxury hotel. I have over 125+ 5 star reviews so they are often booked solid most of the year. If you cant find vacancy in one check the others (you will find photos with the links printed on them when you scroll through these images) or inquire and I will send you the links. EVERYTHING is as PRISTINE as a DELUXE HOTEL SUITE so be prepared to be fully pampered as if you were staying in one (for a fraction of the cost!). The home is very clean and tidy, well designed and comfy. The host LOVES to pamper her housemates so you will also receive a WELCOME KIT w/home operation information, maps, restaurant suggestions, entertainment, sightseeing info and more....
Each room has a fan and ocean breezes with windows open provide a nice cool climate. Very few places around the beach area here have air conditioning because we just don't need it when you're living at the ocean. California is adjacent to the desert so we have a very "dry" climate with NO humidity. This means we don't feel the cold in the winter and we don't feel the heat in the summer. The climate is basically the same all year around. It’s the best part of Southern California.
Please feel free to enjoy the entire home. Don't feel you need to be confined to your bedrooms.
- Kitchen w/all appliances,
- Bamboo Tiki Bar Dining bar
- Living room w/ gas and wood burning fireplace,
- Large flat screen T.V.,
- Our own on sand beachfront patio w/sunbathing lounge chairs, dining table with umbrella, BBQ and more.....
Come and go as you please. I pride myself in giving my guests as much privacy as possible and I am often not at home. Your room is private and we respect your privacy. No one will be entering into your space. The home and the neighborhood are both very safe. Please feel free to also enjoy the shared common areas such as the kitchen, living room with fireplace, flat screen TV, comfy sectional couch, Tiki Bar Dining Bar or our tropical sand, beachfront patio!
Feel free to text me anytime should you have any questions about anything. My housemates are my priority to don't hesitate to ask any questions.
Interaction with Guests
Typically I like to greet my housemates when they arrive (if I'm able to) and give a quick tutorial of the home. However if you arrive late or I'm not here to greet you the keys will be left outside for you in a secret spot. There is an extensive HOME MANUAL/GUIDEBOOK in your room with all the FAQ's, such as internet log in, and how to operate the TV, stove and any other appliances, restaurant recommendations, maps, pictures etc...
There is an additional room for rent downstairs so you may cross paths with the other housemate. I do my best to make introductions but if I am not here please introduce yourselves to one another. I am very selective about the people I choose to rent to and ask everyone to complete the identity verification process before accepting you. I typically trust my intuition and I have been very fortunate to have had the most wonderful, respectful, people stay with me who cherish the beach as much as I do. Many of my housemates end up becoming long life friends. Its one of the unexpected bonuses of this unique lodging environment.
The prestigious marina peninsula is a rare, private strip of private beachfront paradise with NO crazy Venice boardwalk traffic. Its considered an very safe, upscale community with friendly people who smile, hug and say "hello" to strangers a lot! The residents are a diverse mix of volleyball players, surfers, artists, film industry executives and just about everyone else. Everyone is VERY health conscious so don't be surprised at how many people you will find engaging in diverse outdoor activities and exercises.
The neighborhood is conveniently nestled between Venice/Santa Monica and the south Bay, and Only 10 minutes to both the 405 and 10 fwy’s and 12 minutes to LAX airport (a $23 taxi ride with luggage). You can WALK to everything. The Town house is only a few blocks from Washington blvd cafes, bars, restaurants, shops, pier, boat marina, boat rental, surf shops, Venice canals, Venice Boardwalk, yoga, pilates, banks, dry cleaners & market. You can rent bicycles, rollerblades, boats, surf and paddle boards and just about anything else from the rental shop 3 blocks away. You can walk or bike to Abbot Kinney Blvd, Admiralty Way in the marina or Santa Monica Third Street Promenade for additional shopping, restaurants, bars, movie theaters and the Santa Monica Pier. Free Summer concerts are held Thursday nights on the SM Pier and in Marina del Rey on weekends at Burton Chase Park and at the Open Air, Organic Farmers Market Festival every Sunday on Main street & Ocean Park. There's just so much to do and see here!
You can walk to just about everything but there is also a bike path just in front of the house that will take you all the way into Santa Monica and south Malibu. There is also a bus stop and taxi zone on Washington blvd 3 blocks from the house. You don't really need a rental car for daily use to get around so save your money and just rent one if you really need it on a daily basis.

Our magnificent beach front patio at sunset with sun lounge chairs, dining table, tiki torches and fire pit surrounded by palm trees.
To start, Elizabeth is a gracious host, willing to be of assistance at any time and very respectful of one's privacy. Her place is clean, comfortable and quiet, in a great location with unbelievable view over the beach and the ocean. Slept so well. I enjoyed my stay tremendously and would love to return.
Elizabeth is a very social, engaging host with a beautiful home.
I had a lovely three nights in this place. The house is literally right on the beach - you open the gate and step onto the sand. Fabulous! Elizabeth was a friendly host with a great knowledge of the area. Lots of tips on where to shop & eat. Plus bikes & other things to borrow too. Loved it. Highly recommend.
elizabeth is very friendly and helpful, she knows a lot about LA.
nice and quite location
I spent four nights at Elizabeth's condo and loved every moment. It is a perfect location! Very safe a quite area, but within short walking distance to the action. On our last day, Elizabeth gave us great information about our day trip to Santa Barbara...without her advise, we would have missed a lot of what the towns we traveled through had to offer. Couldn't ask for a better spot. And couldn't ask for a better hostess!
Our experience was great. Elizabeth's instructions are very thorough and she provided great local insight. The room was exactly as described, except she could have gone into more detail on how great you could see the ocean and hear the waves! It would be hard to top its location. My wife and I stayed for our honeymoon and we will stay there again when we are ever in the LA next.

About the Host, Elizabeth
I have 4 rentals located next to one another and over 125+ 5 star reviews. I'm a true 'people' person and have been renting out vacation rentals in my beachfront properties for years. I custom design each one with my trademark tropical, bamboo flair and a comfy, fun, peaceful environment. I love to pamper my guests in any way possible. My rentals are turn-key with all the amenities you might desire. My rentals are IMMACULATE, every nook and cranny is meticulously cleaned so expect something resembling a 5-star resort. I use only top quality pillows, 100% cotton bedding and deluxe mattresses because I assume everyone is as finicky as I am. You'll sleep like a rock and thats what vacations are all about.

I'm a French-American and have spent the last 30 years of my life divided between California and France and LOVE people of all races and cultures. I'm a semi-retired, award winning pro photographer, author of 3 books, interior designer and a vacation rental host.
Come and go as you please. I consider myself an awesome concierge so I'll definitely point you in the right direction for the best restaurants, where to get a pedicure or a massage, shopping, surf lessons and must-see locals spots.
I want to make sure you feel ABSOLUTELY AT HOME and have all the ideal comforts one would want no matter how long you stay. This is a very unique and special place with a beautiful interior and lots of amenities so I am seeking respectful renters who honor and cherish it as much as I do.
