One House to Ocean - BEST-AT-THE-OCEAN – California Dreamin’

Located at the quiet end of the Marina 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 and sparkling ocean, you simply cannot find a more exciting location to spend your well-earned California vacation. Walk 1 block to the jetty where Marina del Rey meets the Pacific Ocean…sit and watch the sailboats, yachts and kayaks come and go. It’s great for people watching, too! Walk or bike (4 bikes provided) a few minutes north to the Venice Beach boardwalk and participate in or enjoy watching the activities surrounding you – roller blading, bicycling, jogging, skate boarding. You might even catch a TV show or movie being filmed. Swim, sunbathe, take long beach walks, enjoy the beautiful sunsets, boogie board, bodysurf, kayak, fish – your choice – it’s all right here. Or just relax at home on the serene roof top deck while absorbing the beauty surrounding this charming getaway.

This 3+ level - 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home has an elevator for those of you who don’t like stairs. There is a second living area/den and deck on the top level. Best-at-the-Ocean has a very open and spacious floor plan, decorated in a combination of Asian style and casual beach living. You get it all - sun, sand and zen. Two reserved, tandem parking spaces come with Best-at-the-Ocean.

With its Asian feel, this elegant, and comfortable vacation rental is architecturally interesting. One level up from the entry, is a large, very private master suite with a king bed and its own ensuite bath with shower. Going up another level, you will find a living/dining room combination, a kitchen and a second bedroom with a queen bed and bath with shower. There is a gas-burning fireplace in the living room. An elevator takes you from the entry level and can stop at the master bedroom and at the living room level. For those who wish to dine at home, the kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances and comes stocked with spices, cooking oils, and a pantry of condiments. All you need to do is supply your favorite fresh foods and drinks. A few steps up from the main living room, on another level, is a spacious rooftop den and deck with comfy sitting areas, a desk and windows all around. From here, there is access to a large sunny deck. The views are wonderful.

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. Walk or bike the picturesque canals of Venice Beach.

If you wish to keep in touch with the world outside, we provide wireless and wired high-speed broadband internet (printer is connected to the network).

About Noi or Jamie

We have lived in this area for a long time. Residents and visitors to the area find it charming.

Noi or Jamie purchased this house in 2000

Why Noi or Jamie chose Venice

The location is very close to Los Angeles International Airport, yet it is just off the Ocean at the very quiet end of the peninsula on a serene walk street and open corner lot. The building is open, light and airy.

What makes this house unique

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

The location is wonderful and the house is exquisite. You have thought of everything that a person would need. We also loved sitting in the massage chair. We would love the chance to stay here again. It was really a nice family trip. Thank you for everything.

Best Vacation Rental To Date

  • 5 of 5

The location was amazing and as described, a quiet area with views of the beach. We loved spending time on the rooftop deck and got to watch the sailboat regatta the day we arrived. The house is beautiful and had everything we could need, it was like a home away from home. There was lots to do and see with Venice Beach and the Santa Monica Pier nearby. There were great restaurants around the marina which we really enjoyed. We have recommended this place to our family and friends and would love to come back again next year! Thanks so much for the wonderful experience.

Great Propety, Beautiful View if you want to deal with plumbing issues all week

  • 1 of 5

The property was great if you are ok with having to call the maintenance guy everyday to deal with all of the issues of an older home. Ours was plumbing problems every single day, among other things. Do the owners care that you are having all of these issues in their property, NO they don't. My suggestion if you want a trouble free vacation, find a better place with owners that are more concerned about their renters happiness than about the money. I will return to that area, but not in this home. BUYER BEWARE

Owner's Response: As you can imagine from all of our 5 Star reviews, this review has greatly surprised and perplexed us. As this guest mentioned, our “Best-at-the-Ocean is a great property.” If ever there is an issue, our Manager, Rudy, responds immediately and is always quick to fix whatever needs attention. Rudy was called to Best-at-the-Ocean 3 times.. The first time was because this guest couldn’t figure out how to turn on the TV. There are guestbook instructions for this, Rudy tried to walk the guest through the process on the phone, and when the guest still said he couldn’t get the TV on, Rudy went to the property and showed him. The guests commented on how easy it was and that they were embarrassed that they had to call him. (This is the first time in 5 years that a guest has had an issue turning on the TV.) The second time the guest emailed that the “the downstairs shower, had no water”. Rudy went right away and fixed it – although it appeared that the shower head had been tinkered with. The third time was for a plugged garbage disposal. The garbage disposal had not only excess roughage in it, but also nuts and broken glass. Rudy went and removed the above, and the garbage disposal worked. This guest then emailed us “I expect partial reimbursement.” We made what we considered an appropriate refund, even though we believed that the issues were caused by the guest. The guest wrote “I exaggerated my review a little bit to try to make a point” and said that the refund wasn’t enough, hence his negative review. Our goal is always to have satisfied guests who have great memories of their vacation at our Best-at-the-Ocean. With these guests, we were not able to achieve this, even with our best efforts.

A wonderful stay in L.A.

Beautiful house, location, beds, decor, kitchen,

and amenities. Don’t get me started on the message chair -

it’s a miracle we even left the house. Thanks to our hosts for wonderful communication and a seamless stay.
