ON THE SAND: Romantic bedroom suite w/awesome ocean view, privt balcony in SHARED 3 bdrm home, door lock, mini frig, coffee/tea, deluxe bedding, surf & boogie boards, bicycles, tropical beach patio, full kitchen, Tiki Bar tabl
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.
Your (16’x14) Oceanfront bedroom suite INCLUDES:
** A STOCKED MINI FRIG with COMPLIMENTARY FREE: bottled water, coffee, teas and beer to get your started your first day.
- Spectacular ocean view w/private balcony overlooking beach
- Flat screen TV with cable
- Mini kitchenette (frig, microwave, coffeemaker).
- NEW deluxe mattress w/NEW 800ct. Egyptian cotton bedsheets, down pillows,
- Massive closet,(tons of storage space. Enough for two people),
- Wireless internet, (take your laptop on the sand!)
- Boogie boards
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.

* DISCLAIMER: USE OF SPORTING GOODS: PLEASE NOTE: By You (and all members of your party) agree to use the supplied sporting goods (surfboards, boogie boards, bicycles, skateboards, rollerblades, paddle tennis or any other sporting items) at your own risk and hold the owner, host and building manager 100% harmless against any injuries or death that might occur by the use of these items.

Please use caution when playing in the ocean. Enjoy but be Safe!
Elizabeth was very accommodating and kind. The place looks just as the pictures indicate.. It was refreshing awaking to the sounds of the ocean and being right there!! The location was everything! It was so convenient and walker friendly! OH! the beds were soooo comfy!!!Thank you Elizabeth!
Staying with Elizabeth was wonderful! She was a beautiful, cozy place right on the beach; doesn't get any better! The rooms are set up with everything in mind - from the wine glasses, to plates, silverware, napkins, the works! If you didn't want to you could exist solely in the bedroom watching the waves and losing track of space and time. But when venturing out downstairs you are met with a great, cozy place that just feels like a second home. From the great sectional sofa, to the outside tiki patio just perfect for morning tea or evening sunsets.
Elizabeth herself is a great host. She has it down to a science. Take the time to read her instructions and manual. It has every detail that you could possibly want to know about the property. Clearly she has put time in this! But this is her life, and she is dedicated to making sure you have what you need. She is friendly, responsive, and caring. She was happy to meet and grant all of my requests, and also just really fun to chat and hang out with. I can't wait to come back and visit this beautiful place and person!
Superbe séjour chez Elisabeth . La vue de la chambre est splendide et la maison est seulement à 2 min de venice beach ou l on y trouve des restos, bars et boutiques sympas. Nous avons été très bien accueillis , toutes les infos nécessaires ( guide d'accueil) et ne manquerons pas de repasser par la lors de notre prochain voyage ... Merci
Simply wow that was amazing the house is super clean, quite and beautiful place, the view is awesome
Elizabeth is the best host I've seen, she offered me a bike, surfing boards and chairs if I want to sit on the beach. You won't forget the stay with Elizabeth and I highly recommend this listing
This place was perfect. We stayed for a long weekend and this spot really made the weekend. Waking up to a view of the ocean is like nothing else!
Elizabeth was a treat. So helpful and had all the little extra amenities that make the difference - bikes, rollerblades, a grill. You name it. The room was easy to access and was very clean, along with the bathroom. Would definitely recommend staying here!
Awesome! Would totally stay with Elizabeth again! Amazing location on the beach, and great proximity to bars/restaurants.
One thing to note, it is a shared bathroom setup, I don't think the ad mentioned that until after we booked. We only shared it with Elizabeth it seemed and there was never a conflict so it was not a problem.
Loved listening to the waves crash and watching the sunset from the balcony. Easily a million dollar view, for a fraction of the price. Unfortunately we had a 6am flight and only got witness one sunrise, when we come back, we'll totally stay for more than two days.
Someone mentioned that her policies/labeling are a bit overkill, it didn't bother us, was actually helpful at times. Not sure how that could ever take away from walking out the back door and being on the beach...
Elizabeth is a great host! She was there when we arrived to make us feel comfortable as soon as we walked in!
The location of her place can't be beat. We loved our stay there.

I'm a true 'people' person and have been renting out vacation rentals in my beachfront properties for years. I love to pamper my guests in any way possible. My rentals are turn-key with all the amenities you might desire. I'm into cleanliness, luxurious comfort, quiet and making others feel as warm and welcome as possible. My rentals are IMMACULATE, every nook and cranny is meticulously cleaned so expect something resembling a 5-star resort in that regards. I use top quality pillows and bedsheets because I LOVE a good nights sleep and Im finicky about things like this so I assume my guests are too.
I'm an active, healthy, female in my 40's. I love to surf, hike and bike and am I'm originally from the Midwest, well-traveled and speak several languages. 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.
