One House to Ocean - 1 Loft Bedroom, 1 Full Bath, Sleeps 2

Best-At-The-Beach – California Dreamin’ – One House to Ocean

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.

If you wish to keep in touch with the world outside, we provide wireless and wired high-speed broadband Internet (printer connection is USB only) and a 46” flat screen TV. For your recreation pleasure, there are 2 bikes, 2 boogie boards, and beach towels.

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 Venice

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!

Best furnished place we've been to!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of those places you hesitate to give great reviews since it may be booked next time you want to stay!! But Jacqui/Jamie/Noi were such terrific hosts, you have to!

The amount of essentials they supplied was amazing...from a large fan to office supplies to fresh ice in the freezer! Even some arrival champagne. Best we have ever seen in any of these places.

The bikes were great as they are on a non-busy one way access road you can ride the ~1.25 mile to Downtown Venice Beach then onto the bike path by the Boardwalk shops/artists or all the way to Santa Monica if you want. Locks and helmets supplied.

Walkable or via bikes in the other direction is the Marina area which was fun to watch boats and walk on the beach. We also rode around the neighborhood to see the canals.

The tandem parking was easy as no tight parking poles or door dings. You can have coffee on the porch area and see the sand/water which literally is only a Sand Wedge away.

Bed up in loft area was very comfy & larger than ours at home so we were spoiled! TV functioned well and good selection of channels (no HBO or Showtime) with the major News, Business, HGTV, Golf etc.

Hope to come back sooner than later!!

California like the brochure

  • 5 of 5

From the get go Jacqui and Noi were great to deal with. The apartment is located near to LAX, Marina del Rey, Venice, Santa Monica and a few steps from the beach. It is fully equipped, comfortable and in a residential area. Day's start with s bike ride followed by a swim and leisurely brunch before heading out to explore the rest of LA. Parking is included and it is only a short trip up the road for supplies and food.

Everything you need is here and we highly recommend it to other travellers.

Location

Location was GREAT! Literally steps to the beach. The beach is always quiet and very big, it will feel like you have the beach to yourselves. Not one complaint! The owners are very professional and easy to work with. We hope to be back in the future!

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay. The condo had everything we needed and all the extras for the beach and the bikes were awesome. Clean place and everything in the condo worked.

Beautiful place. Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom unit is beautiful and in a great location. It is close to everything yet tucked away in a quiet section of the beach. The two matching side by side units have some minor differences but ones that we appreciated. This unit (#12) has an uncovered courtyard type extra long parking spot where as unit (#12 1/2) has a tight parking spot under the condo. This units front porch is shaded and more private due to the location of the shade tree in the court yard where as the other ones front porch is sunnier and closer to the alleyway. The layout and furniture are very comfortable. On the main level it has a well equipped kitchen and eating area plus a living room area with remote controlled fireplace and large flat panel TV. The loft bedroom and bathroom are upstairs. The King sized bed is very nice plus there is a desk with wifi printer which was handy in printing out maps and tickets purchased online. This is a second row building but the beach is less than 100 feet away and visible from the front porch. This is the quieter section of the beach yet the craziness of Venice Beach is a short 20 minute walk or 10 minute bike ride away, and yes bikes are provided. There are also beach chairs, beach umbrella and beach towels for your use. We would definitely stay here again.
