This is a cozy, warm and very comfortable studio designed as a small tribute to legendary rock bands that came from Venice & Marina del Rey (such as The Beach Boys, The Eagles & The Doors) that became famous in the 50's, 60's and 70's. The studio can sleep up to 4 persons and includes: a Deluxe Queen size mattress, Two twin mattresses (a trundle bed-couch) TV, A Tiki Dining Bar for 4, a Record player-stereo, Albums, A bean bag chair, a small Kitchen (w/ a 2-burner stove, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, refrigerator, dishes and utensils) and a small patio with 2 small chairs. We use only 100% cotton bedding so you will have a cool, soft, wonderful night's stay.

CHECK IN TIME & YOUR ARRIVAL:

You may check in ANYTIME after 3:00 pm. I am your host-concierge and I live just across the street! l try to meet & greet my guests upon their arrival to assist with parking and luggage and to give a brief tutorial of the property. However, in the event I cannot meet you at your arrival time the keys will be left in a "secret spot" for those arriving late at night. In the unit on the Tiki Bar is also a very detailed guide book/home manual with WIFI passwords and loads of info on the operations of the apartment.

ABOUT THE AREA & NEIGHBORHOOD:

The neighborhood is conveniently nestled between Venice/Santa Monica and the south Bay, and Only 10 minutes to both the 405 and 10 fwy’s and 12 minutes to LAX airport (a $23 taxi ride with luggage or try LYFT or UBER for half the price).

The prestigious marina peninsula is a rare, private strip of private beachfront paradise with NO crazy Venice boardwalk traffic. It’s considered a very safe, upscale community with friendly people who smile, hug and say "hello" to everyone. The residents are a diverse mix of happy surfers, artists, volleyball players, film-industry executives and just about everyone else. Everyone is VERY health conscious so don't be surprised at how many people you will find engaging in diverse outdoor activities and exercises to stay in shape.

You can walk to almost anyplace so you don't necessarily need a car. Our neighborhood is an upscale SAFE community and quite a contrast from that of Venice beach (only a few blocks away). The beach house is only a few blocks from Washington blvd cafes, bars, restaurants, shops, pier, boat marina, boat rental, surf shops, Venice canals, Venice Boardwalk, yoga, pilates, banks, dry cleaners & market. The apartment is located in a just next door to a very small, private spa where you can get a deep tissue massage or just about any other holistic treatment you might want.

TRANSPORTATION:

You don't really need a car. Most locals bike, skate, walk or grab a cheap ride-service such as "LYFT" (50% cheaper than a standard taxi and a much nicer car ride). Just download the LYFT app to your smart phone and use the promo code ELIZABETH337512 for a $10 FREE credit on your first ride. Most guests tell me they wish they didn't spend the money renting a car. There is also a bus stop just a few blocks away that will take you into Hollywood. There is also a Bike-walk Path Just In Front Of Our Place On The Beachfront (that Will Take You All The Way Into Santa Monica And South Malibu). However, if you do have a car you have a guaranteed PRIVATE PARKING SPACE just a few steps from your front door!

THINGS TO DO & SEE:

There is SO much to do and see in and around our area that you couldn't see and do it all in a month! You can rent bicycles, roller blades, boats, surf and paddle boards and just about anything else from the rental shop 3 blocks away. You can bike to Abbot Kinney Blvd, Admiralty Way in the marina or Santa Monica Third Street Promenade for additional shopping, restaurants, bars, movie theaters and the Santa Monica Pier. Free Summer concerts are held Thursday nights on the SM Pier and in Marina del Rey on weekends at Burton Chase Park and at the Open Air, Organic Farmers Market Festival every Sunday On Main street & Ocean Park. During the Autumn, we have street fairs and art festivals and during December there are two Christmas boat parades with fireworks and crazy fun theme decorations. So much fun! There are also great places to go for a day trips 20-40min away such as the Santa Monica pier for the kids theme park carnival, the marine aquarium, the ferris wheel and the newly built park, restaurants, and day trips to Malibu and Escondido Falls, Temescal Canyon hiking and Topanga Canyon, or south to Redondo or Laguna Beach to watch the Olympic volleyball players training in action. It’s endless!

FOR YOUR FIRST MORNING UPON YOUR ARRIVAL: We offer you complimentary coffee, tea, and all the fixins to help you get over your jetlag. LOL. There is a also small market walking distance a few streets away and several cafes and restaurants to keep you well fed.

HOUSE RULES:

* ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING OR CANDLES ANYWHERE IN OR AROUND THE UNIT. THIS IS STRICTLY ENFORCED!!

* NO LOUD PARTIES: we respect the sanctuary of this peaceful neighborhood

* NO ADDITIONAL GUESTS WHO ARE NOT INCLUDED WITH YOUR RESERVATION (or obtain additional permission).

If you do not know how to surf it is highly advised that you take a lesson from a certified surf instructor. Surfing is far more challenging than it looks. Please use caution when playing in the ocean. Enjoy but be Safe!

About Aunt Betty

I'm a true 'people' person and enjoy meeting different people from different parts of the world. I custom designed my rental with my trademark tropical, bamboo flair and a comfy, fun, peaceful environment. I love to pamper my guests in any way possible. My rental is turn-key with all the amenities you might desire and every nook and cranny is meticulously cleaned so expect something resembling a 5-star resort. I use only top quality pillows, 100% cotton bedding and deluxe mattresses because I assume everyone is as finicky as I am. You'll sleep like a rock and thats what life is all about.

I'm an active, healthy, middle-aged woman and I love to surf, hike and bike. I'm well-traveled, speak two languages and have spent many years living abroad. I'm an open-minded, accepting, free-spirited lady who welcomes ALL people of all races, cultures or sexual orientation. Just be happy!! (no grumpy people allowed. LOL). I value your privacy so I never pry or ask questions. Come and go as you please but if you have questions about anything don't hesitate to ask me. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of the area and my passion for the California culture. I'll definitely point you in the right direction for the best restaurants, where to get a pedicure or a massage, shopping, surf lessons and must-see locals spots. I want to make sure you feel ABSOLUTELY AT HOME and have all the ideal comforts one would want during your stay. This is a very unique and special place with a beautiful interior and lots of amenities so I am seeking respectful renters who honor and cherish it as much as I do.

Why Aunt Betty chose Los Angeles

When designing and furnishing my rentals I try to think about what "I" would want to have the perfect stay someplace. a comfortable deluxe mattress, soft feather pillows and 100% cotton bedding is the first thing that comes to mind. I just wont skimp or cut corners when it comes to things like this. A also love creating environments that make people feel warm, relaxed, pampered with a little bit of "FUN" to remind you to leave your worries behind you for awhile. I hope this is the place that feels like home to you. It was designed with a loving, playful spirit in mind.

LOCATION, COMFY COZY INTERIORS AND ALL THE TOYS AN ADULT-KID COULD DREAM OF!

Fun and Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family vacation taking a road-trip down the coast from Seattle to San Diego. We spent one night in every other place we rented...but we had 2 nights at the Bamboo Beach Hut. So glad that the 1 place out of 9 that we had a little extra time in was Aunt Betty's! So much fun! Everything we needed was there! Kids had a ball playing on all the toys in the ocean! Great Location...quick 4 minute walk to restaurants and shops and a quicker 60 second walk to the ocean! Would love to come back and spend more time! Thanks so much for making our stay awesome!

SuperCool Beach-Vibe Studio

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here just last week. Communication was great leading up to the trip- Aunt Betty greeted us upon arrival and showed us everything we needed to know. The binder she provides was very helpful with stay information, restaurants, maps, and things to do. Having access to bikes and boogie boards was awesome. We walked to breakfast each morning. The beach was literally steps away. Rode bikes into Venice Beach one day as well. One evening we Uber-ed over to the Santa Monica Pier ($6 bargain). We would not hesitate to stay here again. Loved the trundle option too- no arguing with my kids who was taking up more room. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable stay!

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

My kids and I had a great experience! The location and having access to bikes all week, was our favorite part! If you are a beach lover, you only have to walk 10 steps to beach. There is an amazing yoga studio, restaurants filled with locals, and the unique Venice Canals, all just a few blocks away! The staff/owner are helpful and respond to your needs quickly. I would suggest to inquire about a larger unit if you are more than two people or planning to stay a week. (The studio size worked for us as we were out everyday.)

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The unit is cute & comfortable. It is only 1 house off of the beach at the south end of the walking/bike path between Marina Del Rey and Santa Monica. Another great part about this house is the toys it comes with: bikes, skate boards, roller blades, boogie boards, beach toys. We didn't have to bring anything but our clothes. Easy walk to food, Venice & canals. My teenagers loved this place.
