Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Los Angeles area - MDR Marina 2B

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Enjoy a relaxing stay in Southern California just steps from the beach at the Catamaran 2B, a recently remodeled two bedroom apartment in Marina del Rey. This bright apartment is conveniently located just a half block from the quietest residential beach in Los Angeles, yet it is just a five minute walk to many of the restaurants and activities of Venice.

Walk up one flight of stairs to an open floorplan combined living and dining room with a galley kitchen. Relax in contemporary comfort in front of the fireplace, or watch movies on the flat screen TV with HBO channels. Dining table seats four comfortably. The recently remodeled kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, granite countertop, dishwasher, electric range, built in mircrowave and garbage disposal.

Walk down the hall to the first bedroom, which has an Eastern King size bed, Flat screen tv and mirrored sliding closet doors. The hallway bathroom is directly across, with pedestal sink, and tub shower combo. The second bedroom at the end of the hall has two double sized beds, a full length mirror, flat screen TV with DVD player and a large walk-in closet. Also, located off this bedroom is a private bath with walk-in shower and pedestal sink.

The apartment is decorated in peaceful, soft hues with tasteful artwork that celebrates coastal living. Flooring is Pergo wood throughout with dark grey linoleum in bathrooms. All kitchen and bath fixtures are new. Each room has individual heating controls and gas fireplace has an easy push button start. Two outdoor assigned parking spaces comes with the apartment and will fit up to a mid sized car each.

As most beach properties along the California Coastline, this property is not equipped with an A/C unit. With average beach temperatures ranging from 65 to 75 degrees year round, air conditioning is not generally needed in our beach areas. For our warmer days, each of our beach properties is equipped with portable ventilator fans which, when combined with open windows, allow the fresh ocean air to circulate and cool your property to a very pleasant temperature.

Reviewer Comments:

This rental company is horrible and the apartment is not what it looks like in the photos. It is extremely run down, and THERE IS NO AC IN THE APARTMENT. There were cheap space fans throughout the apartment and it was miserable. The neighbors were loud and the decor in the photo is not the same. It is ratty furniture. The management company had originally booked me in another apartment but there was someone ELSE in the apartment when I walked in, which was a nightmare, and they put me in this apartment for the night. The entire situation was a mess and I would not wish going through that again on my worst enemy. Such a pain and such bad customer service.

We got there and knew we had a comfortable, safe, and close to the ocean place to stay for three days. Next year I hope to stay longer and stay there.

Reviewer Comments:

I absolutely loved my stay! The location was a couple blocks away from the beach and restaurants and bars. It was very quiet and peaceful at night. There were no towels and I was able to call and within 30 minutes they were knocking on my door with towels. The kitchen was full of cookware and utensils. I will stay again! The couches could use some cleaning but overall no complaints.

Reviewer Comments:

Location was great, place looks newer in puctures but well mantained and clean. Loved riding out bikes from there to Santa Monica Pier! We were bummed about the beds, specially the room with 2 beds, matresses are very old and uncomfortable. The place was only a little quieter one night. There was partying every night until about 3:00 am and also a very active couple. was embarrased with my teens. Not sure of you own all the apartments there but it would be good to keep a better track as to suggest the place to only young crowds or families or older people. We felt out of place that way and would have so appreciate comments like that in the future so we can decide to stay in a noisy place or not. So we had an awesome time but not sleeping well due to noise and beds was a true bummer in vacation. Customer service was outstanding from Chris and Maria, I so appreciated them!Thank you so much!!! :) I wouldn't recommend property because of noise and beds. :(

We really enjoyed our stay in the unit!

  • 5 of 5

The unit had great cooking facilities. Living and dining area was also great for us as we wanted to prepare our own meals in LA. Visited friends - met up at Abbot Kinney a couple of times and strolled along the beach. Great location. Particularly having a Starbucks and a couple of other cafes nearby.

Great Time on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is so perfectly located by the beach, with a quick walk to some great restaurants. We met up with some friends from Germany here for a few days of eating, drinking and hanging out. The weather was beautiful and the surf was friendly. We had a great time and look forward to coming back!
