Prompt service...great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved The Penthouse. 6 adults and 2 kids. Well located. Easy access to all local attractions.

Had a problem with the toilets when we arrived. Plumber showed up at 8:00 next morning. Recommended that owner replace both. New toilets were installed that afternoon. I love and appreciate good service

"Five Star"

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property for our first visit with our new great grandson. There were three families involved. The penthouse unit was perfect--plenty of room, including two beautiful rooftop areas. The proximity to the beach as well as the canals created many opportunities for recreation very close to home. We biked and hiked and walked every day. The property owner went well beyond expectation in terms of meeting all our needs. We were very comfortable, happy, and hope to return.

Amazing beach house to spend time in

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 6 amazing days in a beautiful penthouse a block from the Marina del Rey inlet (the beautiful boats/yachts/sailboats to watch), and a very short block to a beautiful sandy beach. From the minute we walked in we felt "at home". The luxuries and amenities were amazing; the owner thought of everything from a comfy living room and TV/Cable set up..a kitchen with everything you could need, awesome master bedroom...and the bathrooms (one in the master, one in the hall) had Up Scale Hotel amenities in the soap/shampoo/conditioner. There is a guest bedroom, and then a loft with 2 single beds (twin). Go up a set of stairs to the left and a huge rooftop patio with amazing comfy furniture, table and chairs and bbq. Right inside the door is a sink which is useful when up there. If you go up stairs to the right, it's through a large skylight to yet another full furnished patio... All we can say is WOW..beautiful!! We were very comfy there, did a lot of cooking there, but many places close by to eat that are very good. We took at least 3 long walks a day; plenty of trails and out to the end of the pier, over to the Marina, and we even walked the 1 mile into Venice one night for Italian food (highly recommend). The owner is very nice and responsive to your needs and wants your stay to be fun and amazing and happy to help out if you are missing something. We were able to share this with our 2 sons, their wives and 2 granddaughters on Thanksgiving and decided this must be our new tradition. We lucked out to beautiful weather all but one day (we had temps in the high 80's almost 90), which brought in the traditional beach marine layer but was still very comfortable. Very dog friendly and everyone has dogs down in that area and we met a lot of nice people on our walks. If you are looking for a place that 6 people or less can stay at and like the beach atmosphere, I highly recommend this property. I know we have already planned to go back and have expressed this to the owner. The people in the unit downstairs from us (all one building) said they have spent at least the last 4 holidays there. All though we didn't see inside the unit, we talked to the people staying there and they loved it as well and have a nice patio as well and bbq.

Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Breathtaking Escape. Mark Lewis gave me prompt responses and instructions that made booking easy and allowed me to concentrate on arranging other activities in the area. The condo was roomy, clean, and filled with features and amenities. The location made easy access to the beach walk and the Marina Del Rey canal that was full of activity from boats to and from the ocean. I used the two car garage providing parking for local guests in the area in addition to my rental car. We walked along the beach walk to Venice Beach for shopping and restaurants. Car travel to the airport, Costco, and other restaurants was simple with only a few arterials that took us anywhere. I may plan annual events to meet my family members at this location.

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect location for us . The penthouse is spacious and has all amenities that a high end hotel has . It's on quiet site of the Marina but not far from major attractions . Mark is responsive to all over requests . Initially I had some concern for the property without AC . But with the ceiling fans in the living room and bedrooms it's really not an issue. Also the rooftop really makes this property outstanding . The whole family really enjoys the stay . Definitely we will come back later.
