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.

Convenient stop to get anywhere in LA area

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing like falling asleep to the sound of waves hitting the shore. Home is well maintained. Easy to find anything needed in the house. It is easy to walk down to Venice for meals and or morning coffee.

Great house, SO close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our 3 kids (22, 16, and 15) and this house was perfect. The boys shared the large room right off the roof deck, our daughter had her own room with a balcony that she used to read and enjoy the weather, and we had our own floor. The elevator made getting the luggage upstairs a breeze and the massage chair is to die for! It's a quick bike ride (on the provided bikes) to the beginning of the Venice Boardwalk, but far enough away to avoid the noise and crowds. The house has everything you could need. We cooked dinner every night in the kitchen or on the grill and all spices, oils, butter, etc were provided. The Japanese toilets with bidets and dryers were amazing. I would caution anyone planning to stay here NOT to rent a large vehicle. With the construction next door it was almost impossible to get the large SUV we rented in and out of the provided parking spot. The spot was spacious, but there was no room to back out. All-in-all, it was a great trip and a great location. Just really missed my small car from home!

Super location and extremely well stocked

  • 5 of 5

Beach across the street. Bikes, boogie boards and beach chairs all included. House well stocked w everything we needed. Construction noise never an issue. Massage chair was perfect after a long day at Disneyland!

Very comfortable and less than 1 block away from the beach

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely beautiful and comfortable. The owners were very quick to respond to any questions. It was perfect for my family and each room allowed the occupants privacy. It is located on the street right by the beach and is an easy 1 mile walk/run to Venice Beach and the Venice downtown area. We were in town for a wedding over in City of Industry. Just FYI to anyone staying in the Marina del Ray area, traffic is always bad if you need to go through or past LA. We intentionally picked this property because we wanted to be near the water and do things up in Santa Monica. My family and I would definitely stay at this property again if we're in California.
