Playa Del Rey House Rental Photos and Description

Accommodations: 3 Bedrooms w/Queen Size beds + 2 Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths

This Private and Secluded Zen-like 2100 sq ft. 3 bedroom, 2 bath 2 story Home is in the Exclusive Beach neighborhood of 'L.A's Best Kept Secret', Playa del Rey, centrally located to the South Bay Beaches and LA's glamorous city. Enter behind a private gate and journey into this quiet and safe, lushly landscaped tropical refuge. Eastern artifacts, Buddha's, a gurgling fish pond, birdbath, rock garden and a teak bench serenely escort you into this special house, furnished for comfort and healing energy. If you are looking to 'PARTY' this is NOT the home for you.

This unique home is perfect for vacationing families looking for rest or 'LA'S hot action' that's just minutes away.

The clean straight lines of Architecture, inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, has high wood ceilings and powerful crossbeams. Floor to ceiling glass in the Living Room and Formal Dining area create a spacious and airy setting in this loft style home. Relax, release, and chill out on the Futon Style Loungers.

Dine 'alfresco', year round, on sumptuous local fresh seafood or BBQ your favorite culinary delights from nearby Bristol Farms, the famous gourmet food shoppe. Let the Southern California sunshine energize your day during breakfast in the Formal dining area that accommodates 8 on the Cherry Wood Asian Dining table. Custom Tile Counter top seats 4 more with bar stools. Sip an espresso, gourmet tea, smoothie, or fresh squeezed lemonade from the tree in the garden. KEURIG single cup coffee/tea dispenser, Toaster, Coffee Maker and Blender are all included with the Full Kitchen.

Ascend through the carpeted 'Low-Rise' stairwell with high ceilings, bamboo-screened windows and Asian styled architecture lighting. A bamboo plant and more lush decorations lead the way to the 2nd floor restorative rest area.

The Master Bedroom has wall-to-wall sliding Shoji Screens. Close them for privacy or open them to the Living Area below or dreamily gaze through the huge glass windows into the Zen Garden. Rejuvenate on the comfy Queen Size Bed. The Master Bath has shoji doors and windows, double sinks, a glass shower stall, and 2 large closets with sliding full length mirrors that make dressing a pleasure.

Enjoy the California Sunset and a partial view of the Pacific Ocean from the front upstairs Bedroom that sleeps 2 on a Queen Size Bed. The Bamboo-screened front wall of glass overlooks the semi-private park directly across the street. Mirrored closets here as well.

For your comfort and enjoyment, read, sip some coffee, wine, or tea, or even take a nap on the Private Balcony of the rear bedroom that sleeps 2 on a Queen Size Bed also with mirrored closets and a 32' Flat Screen TV.

Soothe yourself to a candlelight bath in the decorated FULL Bathroom behind Bamboo-screened windows of the second floor.

Enter through Sliding Glass Doors from the Living Area or walk the plant covered latticed path on the side of the house to the sanctitude of the green-growth covered Hi-walled Back Yard. Soak your worries and stress away in the Large California Redwood Jacuzzi beneath the stars or during the day. Relax and Lounge in the backyard under the shade of tall trees surrounded by more lush tropical plants, or feed the squirrels and watch the hummingbirds as they flutter throughout the Zen Garden.

Exceptional place to stay

  • 5 of 5
I'm almost reluctant to say how much we loved this place for fear it will be too popular for our next visit. It's beautifully furnished, spotless, quiet, peaceful. The owners provided welcoming goodies, bottled water, coffees and teas, a generous supply of towels and toiletries, such an improvement over other VRBO properties we have rented. It was the cleanest place we've ever rented. The neighborhood is great for walking. Plenty of birds visit the lovely garden. We wanted to stay longer than we could. The owners also got right back to us when we had questions and are obviously very organized. We appreciate that so much. Directions are clear. It was a painless rental process--no stress, which is just what they advertised. We love this house and hope to stay again.

More than perfect!

  • 5 of 5
After a wonderful 'round-the-world' trip of staying in gorgeous accommodation in several countries, The Zen Home was still the most impressive! The photos online don't even do it justice. Everything about the place exuded comfort and tranquility! It is in a lovely area, surrounded by other beautiful homes with friendly people jogging and walking their dogs. Every room in the house made it easy to relax and unwind. It was so clean and beautifully furnished. The beds were so comfortable and the showers were lovely. But it was the little things that really made this property extra special. Donna had put so much thought into how she could make the stay so smooth and comfortable, like a toothpick dispenser, bottles of water, a huge range of teas and coffee, take away menus, awesome movie and breakfast snacks. This didn't feel like someone just renting out a house, it felt like a five star b&b but with all the privacy you want! Even the standard of towels was better than hotel quality. Our only regret was not being able to stay there longer! It was perfect! We will definitely return to LA again and stay here. I miss it already! Can't recommend it highly enough!

Fantastic Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
We live locally and rented the house for my family while they were in town for our wedding, and so that I would have a place to get ready with my sister / bridesmaid. Every part of the rental process went smoothly and Donna was a pleasure to work with. The house is beautiful and very 'zen,' so it was a great place to retreat to after all the hustle and bustle / prep for the wedding happening at our house.

My family could not have been happier with the Zen Home and the amenities / extras that Donna provided. I would rent here again and recommend it in an instant to any family / friends in town looking for a quiet 'home away from home.'

Thanks again to Donna for going above and beyond with: 1) a beautiful home with all 'the little things' there for us to make it just like being at home; 2) for the thoughtful wedding gift that was in the perfect basket for our flower girl (thanks for saving me as I was basketless!); and 3) for hand delivering the items we left in the dryer!

The only complaint I received was from my now husband because he never got to see the house and only heard the rave reviews... ; )

Owner's Response: Christy,

Let me start off by saying once again CONGRATS on being a "MRS". I'm happy you and your Family found peace and solitude in the Zen Home while you were preparing for your wedding. Unbeknownst to me, I'm so glad I could help with your "basket" situation as well. It brings a smile to my face knowing the Zen Home played a small part, and will be forever etched in a timeless memory of a beautiful day in your lives! All the best, Donna & Steven =D

Everything I wanted for my family trip to LA

  • 5 of 5
The Zen home is a very comfortable and spacious house for my family of 5 to stay in LA near the marina and beach. The house is very clean and fully stocked with all the amenities you will need...(A++ for thoughtfulness) I am very impressed with the house layout, the Zen interior and exterior decorations as well as the rock garden. The back patio with Jacuzzi is so relaxing to enjoy morning coffee. The homeowner is very responsive and get back to us with any questions right away. My kids (5 & 7) were so happy to stay at a house and not a hotel. I highly recommend the Zen home to anyone who needs to stay in the LAX area for either business or vacation.

Relaxing "home away from home" with extensive amenities

Relaxing "home away from home" with extensive amenities
  • 5 of 5
The Zen Home was absolutely perfect for our family vacation with our three teen boys. . Located about a mile from the beach (where we would take our morning runs), the owners stocked the home with everything needed for the beach including plenty of beach towels, blankets, cooler and thermal bags, beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, sand toys, and even water bottles and paper plates, etc. The home had every convenience needed including nice cooking utensils and basic spices, keurig coffeemaker and coffees, laundry machine /dryer and soap, shampoos, soaps, first aid kit, plenty of storage, quality towels and sheets, jacuzzi, etc. The welcome snacks and fresh flowers were such thoughtful touches. The neighborhood was convenient and quiet. The home was so comfortable and nicely decorated.. Our boys even agreed they'd love to live in it permanently! And the owner, Donna was very responsive to requests including allowing an earlier check-in and having our family over for dinner. Honestly, this rental felt like home and was the best we've rented over the years. Thanks for a wonderful time.
