About Andrea and Mark Malin
He's a software developer and she blogs about their travels in their Airstream. Both born and raised in Southern California -- Culver City and Pasadena -- and married for 6 years. We have a rear house on the property where our daughter lives so there is always someone around to provide advice, directions or an extra key.
Andrea and Mark Malin purchased this House in 1997
Why Andrea and Mark Malin chose Mar Vista
Our neighborhood is very walkable and safe, plus there are restaurants, markets, bars, coffee houses and a Sunday Farmers Market just a block away! Purchased 18 years ago, we renovated this mid-century house ourselves and consider it a labor of love. We feel very lucky to be able to own a piece of West Los Angeles and share it with others.
What makes this House unique
It's difficult to find a 5 bedroom house in West LA, especially one as nice as ours, for such a reasonable price, too! We are freeway close to everything LA has to offer -- Disneyland, Universal Studios, Hollywood and Downtown LA -- and minutes to Venice and Santa Monica AND Malibu beaches, as well. Its one of the reasons we bought the house in the first place, just a great property with a terrific location.

The Perfect Family Home
Andrea and Mark were great in making their house a home for our family. They were the perfect hosts in providing snacks and drinks for us and having all the "little touches", which included a 12 foot Christmas tree in the entry hall! The outside decks added to family fun areas and the house accommodated 6 adults and four children very easily. Thank you for a great stay.
perfect home away from home for a big family. terrific hosts!
The home's five bedrooms with TVs allow for plenty of privacy. fully packed kitchen and deck off the dining area. the long teak deck table is a real plus for family meals. Our hosts had yummy snacks and a nice bottle of wine waiting for us upon arrival. You can't beat that!!
Mark and Andrea showed awesome hospitality...The property was very clean, if anything was needed Mark and Andrea were right there in a matter of seconds to accommodate you.
I would definitely recommend this location to anyone who visits the area. We will be back again and thanks for everything.
Great time in west LA
We arrived on a late Saturday afternoon and were greeted by mark and Andrea with a fruit and cheese platter which our kids devoured after a long flight. We stayed with another family of five so ten of us altogether. The house accommodated us very well! The house was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with any utensils you could need. Our favorite part was our short scenic drive to Malibu. Walked on the pier and spent the entire day on the beach next to it. Kids played all day in the huge waves. Overall enjoyed our stay and mark and Andrea were helpful with any question or advice we needed!
Mark was amazing!! My family & I(11 of us) celebrated my daughters college graduation by traveling to LA, so we decided to go with a this home instead of hotel. This was my first experience with a home so I was nervous, praying it would be as nice as the pictures. The house was beautiful, Mark & his wife were very welcoming. We would definitely be using them again whenever we visit. I definitely recommend this home we loved it!!
By far one of the best b&b’s we’ve stayed at. Conveniently located not far from Venice and Santa Monica. Cvs and grocery store right next door. Mark and Andrea are awesome. There was cheese and fresh cut strawberries when we arrived which was perfect after a long flight. Later in the week Mark cooked for us and they had dinner with our group. Great getting to know Mark and Andrea!
Very walkable, family-friendly location with several restaurants, coffee houses and bars within blocks of our home, including a Sunday Farmers Market 2 blocks away. Venice Beach is 2 miles west straight down Venice Blvd and Santa Monica lies just north of Venice, featuring the famous Santa Monica Pier and 3rd Street Promenade, famous for wonderful shopping, eating and people watching! Plus we're 10 minutes from LA International Airport (LAX), 30 minutes to Universal Studios, 25 minutes to Hollywood Blvd, and an hour to Disneyland. We are truly freeway close to everything you'd want to do in Los Angeles.
Additional pricing information
Check in time is 4pm and checkout is 11 am. Guests are welcome to enjoy all parts of the house, but the back yard is off-limits. Our daughter and her family live in the rear house on our property, so that is their area to enjoy.
