Located at the quiet end of the Golden Peninsula, (but close to all the activity), with its separate and private entrance on a beautiful tree-lined walk street, with open views to the golden sand beach, you simply cannot find a better location to spend your well-deserved vacation. Swim, sunbathe, take long beach walks at sunset, bike rides, boogie board, bodysurf, kayak, fish - your choice - it’s all right here. Or just relax on the serene deck while absorbing the beauty surrounding this romantic, enchanting get-away for two.

This 2-story 1 bedroom Loft home was designed for light and for having an outdoor feeling. The entire front side is glassed. The unit includes hard wood floors, an electric fireplace, and contemporary living space.

With its art deco flair and light flooding into every room, this vacation rental is fully stocked with everything one could want or need. For those who wish to dine elegantly at home, the gourmet kitchen is equipped with all new stainless steel appliances and also includes spices, cooking oils, and a pantry of condiments. Use the gas BBQ for that “at-the-beach/on-vacation” ambience. All you need to do is supply your favorite fresh foods and drinks. A fireplace adds to the romantic touch.

A 5-minute drive brings you to shopping in Marina Del Rey and Venice Beach. Santa Monica is next door. Visit the nearby farmers markets or enjoy eating Italian, Mexican, Thai, seafood, pizza or local dishes in quaint Marina Del Rey, Venice Beach and Santa Monica.

About Noi or Jamie

We have lived in this area for a long time & know the area.

Noi or Jamie purchased this condo in 2000

Why Noi or Jamie chose Los Angeles area

The location is very close to the Airport. Yet it is along the ocean, at the very quiet end of the Marina Peninsula, on a serene walk street on a corner lot. The building is open, light & airy.

Bicycle on the Sand to Venice Beach Boardwalk, Farmer Markets, restaurants, etc... Boogieboard, swim, walk & relax on the serene part of the Beach. Two bicycles are provided with the rental. Two reserved parking spaces come with Best-at-the-Beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are so pleased to have chosen Best at the Beach. It was recommended by good friends from Playa Del Rey and it was perfect.

The location and accommodation were ideal. The fruit, champagne etc was a lovely touch. Having lived in Upstate New York for a period 1986/87 it was lovely to buy a few familiar items to eat here. If we do ever make the long trip again, this would definitely be our first choice.

Thank you again.

PS We rode the bikes, it was our first time for about 7 yrs!!! Great.

PPS We're not really coffee drinkers so leaving that for the next people. But we DO like the bubbly!

Thanks again.

Stellar home and owners!

  • 5 of 5

This rental is GORGEOUS and blew away all of our expectations. From the beginning, Jamie and Noi were incredibly helpful and responsive to my husband and I. Upon arriving, we had to check the address twice - just to make sure we were at the right place. We thought there was no way we were lucky enough to be so close to the ocean...the ad is as true to the rental as it could ever be and if anything, didn't do it justice!

The kitchen was well stocked and every detail was thought of. It's apparent that they really care about the property and the people who stay there as guests. Little things like rolls of quarters (in exchange for bills) available for laundry and parking, a welcome guide to help orient you to the house and area, as well as a printer - filled with ink! - in the office area, really made a huge impact on us. We wanted for nothing and it was by far the most relaxing property we could have secured.

If you're thinking about renting this space...STOP! Stop thinking and just do it. You really won't regret it and if you don't do it, you'll be missing out hugely. We've already booked their larger rental space for next year and know we'll be coming back for many, many years to come!

Fantastic hide-away!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect located apartment for 2 people => a very good and romantic hide-away, as you are on the beach, it's very quite, but yet close to Venice, Santa Monica and the rest of what LA has to offer!

The apartment was very clean, well equipped and we really appriciated the 2 bikes that we used on the beach promenad.

The contact person was very reactive and gave good service.

A fantastic place!

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful place to stay while visiting our daughter who lives in Venice. Could not have wanted for anything better. Felt like being at home. Highly recommend. We have stayed in many VRBO properties before and this is one of our favorites so far. You will not be disappointed! Thank you Noi and Jamie.

Lovely property in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Best at the Beach is a great property. It is a well maintained and well equipped condo in a terrific location!

I hardly know where to begin to describe this place - so I will start by saying the description on HomeAway is accurate in all details. While all of the furniture is comfortable and in good shape, the king size bed is particularly comfortable. It is wonderful to have on-site parking, beach chairs and bikes! The kitchen is beautifully stocked and guests arrive to find some extra goodies awaiting them!! From reservation to visit the owners are available to answer questions themselves as well as providing a very detailed and helpful book of information at the condo.

My husband and I feel very lucky to have been able to stay twice at Best at the Beach!

Wonderful honeymoon destination!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at several VRBO properties before, I was looking forward to a great week in December of 2015 for my wife and I. Celebrating our honeymoon, we decided to stay in the Marina del Rey/Venice Beach area. The neighborhood was fantastic, and we felt like we were in our own little slice of paradise!

Having planned a wedding for over a year, my new wife and I were looking for a vacation rental that was both reasonable in price, in a quiet location, and that would let us just chill and explore the LA area on foot, bike, or by car. Best-at-the Beach did not disappoint! Located a stone's throw from the beach, this awesome rental let us explore the Strand, ride bikes up and down the beach, walk to popular dining and sightseeing spots, or just chill out on the deck. We enjoyed the neighbor's cat, Bella, who stopped over to say "hi" every now and then, and appreciated the off-street parking spot (handy for our rental car). We took morning walks in the surf, explored the nearby streets and shopping districts like the hip n' trendy Abbott Kinney neighborhood, and even drove up to the Norton Simon Art Museum in Pasadena on a cloudy, cooler day.

The amenities in the beach condo were great! Nice natural lighting, great fireplace, comfy couches, and a great little kitchen. We cooked 1-2 meals there per day, and had a great supply of knives, utensils, pans, condiments, and other supplies, etc. Nothing in the house was forgotten - and it made our trip that much easier! We found the washers and dryers handy, too. Bikes and supplies were great - we had a blast riding up and down the street.

All in all, a great stay. We would recommend it highly - the owners, Noi and Jamie, are super-nice and really care about your vacation. Hopefully we'll be back again soon!

Travel tips:

Shop locally at Ralph's, Whole Foods, or another grocery store (they are all close by) and stock up on liquor and food supplies/snacks. If you're not used to LA drink/dining prices, you might spend your whole eating out budget on drinks alone! Cooking a meal or two a day and drinking at home helped us save a ton of money! The jetty out front and fishing pier make for a wonderful walk early in the morning, between 6 and 9am.

Best-at-the-beach stay

  • 5 of 5

We have used VRBO several times, all good experiences. This stay was no exception. Starting with the house. It was lovely and very clean. It's floor to ceiling windows provided excellent lighting and could be darkened for sleeping in. The highlight was the kitchen and well stocked pantry. We were able to have a small dinner party and it worked very well. Also it had private parking which is a must for the area.

The place is situated very well. Close to all kinds of things as mentioned in other reviews which is no small task given its LA after all. Rode the bikes to Venice beach and Santa Monica to enjoy the people watching and food.

All in all it was what we had hoped for.
