Best-At-The-Sea – 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.

One reserved, off-street parking space comes with Best-at-the-Sea.

About Noi or Jamie

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

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. One reserved parking space comes with Best-at-the-Sea.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I has such a wonderful time here. It was all so centrally located. We visited Venice Beach, Disneyland, Dodgers game.

This was a great place to relax and unwind from our busy schedules. We enjoyed sitting out and drinking wine.

This place had everything and more!!

My husband and I are both cat people. We enjoyed our daily visits with 'Bella', our rental cat. We will miss everything about this place.

Until next time.

Excellent stay - wonderful location, beautiful :)

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in Marina del Rey! The home is wonderful and has excellent EVERYTHING. The furniture, the tv, the china/silver/crystal, the bed linens, the bikes - all was wonderful. This home met and BEAT every expectation I had. They thought of everything. From every kind of cooking utensil, to every kind of bath item. The space was quiet and peaceful. The parking is great and we loved the location - close to the ocean, and close to the main canal, mother's beach, the Venice canals. It is an easy ride up to Venice Beach proper and the Santa Monica pier. Whether you stay and relax inside or on the porch, or go into town or the beach. This home can not be beat. We had a wonderful time. Thank you again Noi and Jacqui.

Much, much appreciate. Laura and Mark

Awesome location!

Great experience. Jacqui was very communicative and made sure we had everything we needed. Perfect amount of space for 2 people but the bathroom could use an update. We would come back for sure.

Our stay was as good as we could ask for. The location was perfect and absolutely beautiful and the property couldn't have been nicer, right down to every need and detail. You can walk to just about everything or ride the bikes that are provided.

We enjoyed every minute and can't stop talking about it...will definitely be back!

Amazing stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon. The owners are great and have thought of everything you need while staying here. We felt so comfortable and at home staying here. It is a bit far from Venice to walk, so the bikes are great for that! And since it's a little far it's much more quiet than being right in Venice which I enjoyed.

Would definitely recommend!
