My boyfriend and I stayed in this 1st floor studio apartment for 4 days. I've been traveling to southern CA for for several years on business, and I've had good experience renting in the Marina del Rey/Venice area. The listing description and the photos of this apartment were accurate at the time of our visit. The property owner/mgr, Marcus, was very helpful and hospitable. We were in town to attend a wedding and enjoy a short vacation, and the studio apartment was a good value, small and efficient but cozy and clean. The building is very close to the beach, includes a parking spot, and use the building's washer/dryer; all of which were great to have available. Short ride to Santa Monica. Close to LAX. I'd recommend this to any travelers on a budget and certainly anyone who wishes to walk to the beach.
