About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bath Condo Surrounded by Water

Our ocean view, 3 bedroom -2 bath condo is steps to the sand in Playa del Rey’s beachside community.

The cozy unit sleeps 6+ is freshly painted, stocked and set up for beach fun: kitchen supplied for cooking with amenities including coffee, teas, sugar, and spices - high thread-count linens, bathrobes, shampoo, conditioner, blow dryers - supplies for days in the sand including beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels and toys for the kids.

Enjoy a view of the yacht races and incredible sunsets from the balcony. Escape crowded beaches with the one in the backyard mainly frequented by locals.

This hideaway is nestled within the exclusive few block area surrounded by Santa Monica Bay to the west, Marina del Rey and Ballona Creek to the north, and Del Rey Lagoon to the east.

The property is one building from the beach & approximately 50 yards to the sand with direct view of the Santa Monica Bay.

Please note: Our location is one row of buildings away from the sand. Our view is thru the easement at the end of 64th Avenue and can be seen from Northeast side of the building including from the balcony, the lounge room, the kitchen bar area and from within the west bedroom.

Next to the bike path, Olympian volleyball practice nets, and near marina bike, kayak and boat rentals. It’s an ideal location for families or couples.

A short walk to the village restaurants, pubs and markets, allows guests to forget about driving for their stay.

With the recently opened Playa Provisions Restaurant and Bacari Wine Bar opening late July 2014, Playa eateries within walking distance are on the rise.

Playa del Rey is minutes from LAX and the 405, 105, 110, 10, 90 freeways to Downtown LA, Staples Center, Staples & Nokia Centers, Beverly Hills and farther locations such as Santa Barbara and San Diego.

Make us your holiday destination, an “easy LAX access” layover, or a place to bring the family along while you work. We look forward to sharing our hidden gem!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our son daughter in law and 2 young grandchildren.

The apartment was spacious, very clean , 1 minute walk from the beach with a beach view also,and lovely extras of beach toys and boogie boards.

The kitchen was well equipped with new appliances and a large washing machine and drier.

I would reccommend it for a very relaxing break by the beach.

We all had a lovely stay😊😊

Beautiful House

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed here in June of 2018. We had 8 family members with 5 adults, 3 kids. I would recommend this house more for 4-6 people because it is quite small, but very nice. There was not enough door hangers to hang 8 wet shower towels, so they were all over the place which was kind of annoying. Other than that, the beach is so amazing and walking along the path on the beach was really fun. We could hear the sea lions barking at night which was really cool while sitting out in the deck area. Cheryl could not have been any nicer and accommodating. Thank you so much!

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house provided a perfect beach getaway for my entire family including wife, two teenagers and two younger kiddos.

To start with, after a fairly long day of travel, it took us only 10 minutes to get from LAX to the house. What’s awesome is that you wouldn’t know a major airport is so close by.

Upon arrival, the next thing we noticed is how close we were to the beach. Not only do you have direct line of sight to the beach and ocean from the balcony, it couldn’t be more than 50 steps from the front door to the beach. This is particularly great for a family so that you have quick access to your own bathroom and other creature comforts when you feel like getting out of the sun for a bit.

Once inside, it’s very well laid out (not huge, but just right). The kitchen has everything you would need to prepare complete meals including utensils and a dozen or so of your typical seasonings/spices. We even found a blender which was great for morning smoothies or afternoon margaritas (don’t judge, I’m on vacation!). Two full size bathrooms and a washer/dryer make your stay complete as well. Oh, and there are plenty of beach chairs and a few beach toys for sand castles. We left behind two decent boogie boards for future guests to enjoy as well.

You are walking distance to several good restaurants and a reasonable drive to Santa Monica and several other great points of interest.

We will definitely be back!!

Perfect for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect - cute little hidden part of L.A. beach scene, practically across the street from the beach, and within walking distance of shops and eateries.

Condo is warm and cozy and has everything you need for cooking, for family & friends to gather, and a place for everyone to sleep.

Cheryl is a wonderful host - left treats and goodies to welcome us and to give us a start for our first breakfast, and made it easy for us to have a place for everyone in our family to have a place to sleep. She stopped in to welcome us, checked in to see if we needed anything, and followed up with us to see how everything was going.

The condo is even better than the pictures portray and we would happily return for a vacation!

Beach Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The location of this condo is fabulous! Not only is it steps to the beach, it is also close to a wetlands protected area. There is even a park close to it with a playground. We loved how quiet this beach is - it is truly paradise. Playa Provisions is near by if you want a coffee for your morning beach time. There is a paved path on the beach for running or biking. Also, I found the pictures of the condo to be quite accurate and the picture that shows the view from the deck is exactly what you get. Speaking of the deck, it is set up very nicely for relaxing and enjoying the view without leaving the condo.

You won't find a nicer host. Although we did not meet Cheryl, she was a great communicator and extremely helpful. We had spent the day traveling and were delighted to find a few provisions provided to get us going until we got to the store.

The only minor complaint is my husband is a light sleeper and although the neighborhood is very quiet; Saturday night was a bit noisy and the windows in the master bedroom did not muffle the sound.

Great property and excellent owner!

  • 4 of 5

Property IS NOT on the Sand as I expected. Description says steps into the sand/beach is misleading. The view is misleading as well, you only get partial corner view of the ocean!

Cheryl is excellent in communicating and she was very accommodating for my family! Property had great instructions and welcome package. It literally had everything someone would have in their house plus extra!

Only reason for 4 stars is deceiving view and description of the property!

Owner's Response: Masud – Thank you again for your visit. As excellent guest experience is our top priority, we regret you were disappointed by the location of our property and that we missed receiving this insight while you were here. We appreciate your feedback and welcome the opportunity to improve our description to immediately eliminate any future misunderstandings. To our current posting that has always included: - Our property on a map of the area - A clarification that our location is between Pacific & Speedway on 64th Avenue - A description that we are “…one building & approximately 50 yards to the sand with direct view of the Ocean…” - Steps to the Sand We have added the following note into the description: “Please note: Our location is one row of buildings away from the sand. Our view is thru the easement at the end of 64th Avenue and can be seen from Northeast side of the building including from the balcony, the lounge room, the kitchen bar area and from within the west bedroom.” Also, we have added a caption to the beach view photo to ensure folks understand it is capturing the area not the view from within the unit. We enjoy sharing our home and little corner of the world with folks & want to make sure the accommodations are the right fit for guests. We will continue to review our posting for improvements. All the best, Cheryl

Car: necessary

“King’s Beach,” has long been an escape within the bustle of Los Angeles since the days of Cecil B. Demille, Mary Pickford and Fatty Arbuckle who all had homes in Playa del Rey. Playa still has a quaint small time feel and is one of the unspoiled beaches of Los Angeles.
