About this listing
Location, location! This modern suite is 4 houses from the beach on the Marina Peninsula in Marina Del Rey. Situated in a safe, beautiful and quiet area, our 1 bedroom suite has its own private entrance and sits over a separate three car garage. It has hardwood floors, high ceilings, lots of light and a fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, gas stove and microwave. The bedroom has a queen size bed, and the bathroom has marble flooring and shower equipped with rainwater shower head. You have access to one car covered parking in the garage, which is worth its weight in gold. Within a two minute walk you are at the intersection of the ocean and marina channel, a beautiful sight to sit and watch the boats go by. We are located 15 minutes from LAX, close to Washington Blvd. which has restaurants, bike and surf rentals, and a bike path along the beach. A five minute (or less) drive brings you to Abbott Kinney, the main strip of Venice, which has many trendy new restaurants and cool shops. Santa Monica and Malibu are both easy drives and beautiful spots to dine, shop or watch the sunset. All you need for food, entertainment and a wonderful vacation is conveniently located within a short distance of the suite. And after a fun day at the beach or sightseeing throughout Los Angeles, our spot is a lovely oasis to return home to. We live in the front house and are happy to help you acclimate to the area. Looking forward to seeing you!
No smoking. Other than that, please be respectful of the property and neighbors.
Roberta is a kind and thoughtful host. Upon our arrival she welcomed me, my son, daughter-in-law, and 5 month old baby to her home and greeted us with beautiful Gladoilus. There was a new package of Dunkin Donuts coffee, fresh creamer, and water available to us on arrival.
The listings on website are accurate. Kitchen fully stocked with cookware, dishes, seasonings, and foil and plastic wrap. Shampoo, Conditioner and a new bar of soap in shower. Fresh linens and towels. Of mention, there is no television in the living room; only in the bedroom.
The place is modern yet quaint and very clean. Nice small balcony to sit out on in the evening. We walked to the beach during the day and at night. Secluded private beach and very safe neighborhood. You can drive to the surrounding cities of Venice and Santa Monica which are 5 - 10 minutes away.
I would highly recommend this beautiful get away location!
Great apartment and location, beautifully kept and furnished.
Roberta provided us with all the essentials and more and was available for us if needed.
We will definitely return again to this wonderful spot.
Overall, we had a wonderful experience in Marina del Rey. Roberta and her husband were fantastic hosts. The space is truly your own private suite. The pictures are 100% accurate. The apartment is in beautiful condition, extremely clean, and she is nice enough to have coffee, filtered water and milk waiting for you. She also gives you access to her 3 car garage which can not be beat!
If you are looking for a beach location, this can not be beat. You are less than a 5 minute walk to the beach. Venice beach is about 15-20 minutes up the board walk, and Santa Monica is a bike ride or a quick Uber away.
We had a great trip, and I would recommend Roberta's place to anyone looking for a few days in SoCal!
Wonderful spot for girl's weekend at the beach. Apartment was just as listed - clean, very spacious for a 1 BR and all appliances in working order and available. Linens, towels, beach towels, all provided. Great storage in the bedroom closet and with bureau if you are staying more than a few days. Weather was beautiful so we spent a lot of time on balcony in the evenings. Roberta was very friendly and checked in on us to make sure all was going fine.
We pretty much parked the car and used Uber to get to restaurants. Excellent variety of food within a few miles, both in Marina del Rey and Venice and Playa del Rey. The garage space was VERY welcome as parking is a premium around this area.
If you are a runner, there are running paths nearby + the beach, just houses away. If we would have planned earlier, we would have done a bike rental as well.
Overall, an excellent airbnb experience and I would recommend any of my friends to visit and would definitely use again if I'm in the area.
Roberta made us feel very welcome. She met us on arrival and showed us around the apartment. She even let us use her washer/ dryer for laundry. The apartment was just as described, well equipped and with great air con!
The apartment is truly steps from the beach and a great 4 July location. The area felt very safe - lots of people walking the 15- 20 min walk to the lively Washington boulevard where there were some great restaurants. Roberta provided us with good insider info about the local places to eat and buy groceries.
Fantastic location! We had a great stay and had everything we needed! First experience with AirBNB and it was better than expected! We would love to stay with Roberta again! Great communication and she was there if we needed her, yet we had complete privacy. All I can say is that I miss the beach, the sunsets, the waves...
