Marina del Rey is one of THE most desirable neighborhoods to live in all of Los Angeles. If you want a true "California Beach" experience THIS IS IT. This is the land of "Endless Summer" with beautiful, sunny, warm days ALL YEAR ROUND. YES, you can wear a bathing suit and enjoy the beach in JANUARY, BUT for almost half the price of summer rates. This is the area you see in all the beach movies, TV shows and television commercials (“Baywatch” etc…). This is an upscale, very safe neighborhood. Rents and real estate is HIGH because the location is ideal - the ocean is in front of you, its quiet, safe, clean and walking distance to everything. You don't necessarily need a car. The beach house is only a few blocks from cafes, bars, restaurants, shops, pier, boat marina, boat rental, surf shops, Historic 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.
The residents are a diverse mix of happy surfers, artists, volleyball players, Hollywood actors and film-industry executives. 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. The community is full of friendly, happy people who smile, hug and say "hello" to everyone.
Our strip of beachfront is very peaceful, mostly locals and very few tourists. While it’s only a 10 min walk to the crazy activity of the Venice boardwalk, this is a quieter, safer, more prestigious community of Marina del Rey. Read the guest reviews and you will understand.
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).
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 months, 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 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!
