Overview

Marina del Rey Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 6

PLEASE SEE MY VIDEO BY SCROLLING DOWN TO THE END AND CLICK ON VIRTUAL TOUR (Homeaway) OR BEFORE THE 'PHOTO' SECTION (vrbo).

With breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean from Palos Verdes to Catalina Island to Malibu, this cozy beach retreat is yours to enjoy for a great family getaway, a romantic rendezvous or corporate/executive rental.

Just relax and rejuvenate every day as you watch sailboats drift by, and dolphins play in the surf. Enjoy long walks along the beach and swim and play in the Pacific Ocean steps out your front door. Take a yoga class on the beach while watching and listening to the sound of the calming ocean waves, or take an easy bike ride to Manhattan Beach or Marina del Rey. Watch the sunset after a perfect day at the beach or walk down the street to enjoy the local restaurants in the little sleepy beach town of Playa del Rey, known for its solitude and small town feel.

Close to the many attractions in Los Angeles, enjoy a day of exploring and sightseeing. Los Angeles Intl airport is just 10 minutes away. You will be only 10 minutes to Marina del Rey or Manhattan Beach, 20 minutes to Santa Monica or the Venice Boardwalk, 30 minutes to Hollywood, downtown L.A. and Malibu, 45 minutes to Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm or Universal Studios, and a 90 minute ferry ride to Catalina Island.

Our recently remodeled 2 bedroom, 2 bath quaint beach retreat has all the amenities you need to settle right in and feel right at home. With a total of 1000 sq ft, this lower floor unit can comfortably accommodate a large family (or 2 small families!) or 2 or 3 couples. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with dishes and all the cookware you need to prepare a family meal or a gourmet feast with bar seating for 3, bistro table for 6, or dine al fresco on the tropical lanai.

Enjoy morning coffee or a glass of wine at sunset from the comfortable tropical lanai filled with tiki furniture, tiki bar, heat lamp, succulent garden and a BBQ. After a long, peaceful day at the beach, relax in front of the 2 flat screen TV's, one in the living room (55' with DVD, CD, surround sound and Ipod dock) and one in the master bedroom (42'). Sleep peacefully to the sound of the ocean waves.

When it's time to settle in for the evening, choose from the master bedroom suite, with a queen bed, full size sofa sleeper, and private bathroom, or the tropical room with a queen bed.

There is an additional full size sofa sleeper in the living room (both sofa sleepers have upgraded slumber air mattress system). Both bedrooms have new mattresses, 4'' mattress toppers and high quality thread count linens plus ipod clock radios.

There is an ample supply of fluffy bath and beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards and off street parking for 1 car for your convenience. Internet, Wi-Fi and unlimited local and long distance calling are also available.

Whether you are interested in a family getaway with the kids or a romantic quiet rendezvous at the beach, we look forward to hearing from you so that we may share our little piece of paradise with you.

While we love families/gatherings, we do not allow large groups or parties:)

About Sherry Kennedy

After spending the last 16 years in Colorado raising our two girls, we have come 'back to the beach' to enjoy the Southern California lifestyle and now we are sharing our newly remodeled beach cottage for others to enjoy. We hope you have as many great memories in our oceanfront paradise as we have!

You will be blown away!

  • 5 of 5

So we had a very last minute project in LA that my husband had to fly down for a couple days. We (my 4 year old and 4 week old) decided we wanted to come to. We made it a quiet family vacation. For some miracle the downstairs unit was available for those days. Sherry made the process easy and super fast. (This is probably the most kind and awesome vacation rental owner I have dealt with)

Staying right on the beach is, lets just say, worth every penny. Especially with little kids. Our 4 year old was able to play in the sand RIGHT in front of me, while the newborn napped INSIDE. It was truly a blessing. No dragging beach stuff with you, or having to walk far back if you forgot something etc.

This place is charming and did I mention CLEAN!!! The home itself is older but boy these owners keep it spotless! Thank you Steve and Sherry! We will be back!

A Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a fantastic week at the beach, relaxing and reading and taking long walks. This was the perfect setting for that. The pictures of this darling condo just don't capture the wonderful atmosphere. Steve and Sherry were great. If you're looking for a little more personal attention, suggestions for where to eat, etc., they are fantastic hosts. The condo is perfectly stocked with everything you could possibly need. All that was left to do was just relax and enjoy. Sherry's decorating is wonderful. Almost every day I would notice something new. The lanai is so gorgeous that I was inspired to come home and re-create that kind of atmosphere on my deck. Just like the pictures, word don't suffice. Everything was practically perfect, and I'm anxious to return. Thank you, Steve and Sherry!

Fin de semana en playa del rey, California

  • 5 of 5

Tuvimos una experiencia fantástica. La casa fue muy cómoda, limpia y muy bien decorada. Desde allí nos desplazamos a Santa Mónica, Los Ángeles, Beverly Hills sin problemas. Y solo a 10 minutos del aeropuerto.

Beach front rental - Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was perfect for our family vacation. The location was ideal - near all the hustle and bustle of LA , Santa Monica if you wanted - but even better is you walked right out the door and onto the beach. Perfect for kids or just adults. the home was comfortable, clean, updated appliances, and everything one would need. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!

Once Again The Best Time Ever

  • 5 of 5

I just got home from from second stay and I must say it was fabulous. I stayed last year and could not wait to come back. You are right on the beach and you wake up to the smell of the ocean air and all the beautiful flowers and plants that Sherry the owner so lovingly planted. Everything that you would need is at your finger tips. They have thought of everything. I feel like I am coming to my second house ( I wish) Home away from home. I love that the area is NOT touristy and you are away from the crowds. Perfect for a small family or a few friends. I will be back soon.

Perfect California beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our beach vacation over the President's Day/Valentine's Day weekend. The weather was perfect! We were traveling with our youngest teenage son and two of his friends. There was plenty of room to relax for everyone. The boys enjoyed the beach...playing football, boogie boarding, and frisbee. When they say they have a fully stocked toy shed, they aren't kidding! Several boogie boards, a skin board, lots of sand toys, balls and chairs. The house was well stocked with anything that you could need. My husband enjoyed an early morning bike ride on the bike path. My oldest son attends college nearby, and he and his roommates joined us for dinner on the 14th. We decided to BBQ and enjoy the beautiful sunset. Awesome view! We WALKED to dinner the third night and enjoyed a delicious dinner. There is so much to do in LA, but we just didn't want to leave the beach! Sherry and Stephen were so easy to work with and took the time to make sure we were comfortable and didn't have any questions. We have stayed at many VRBO homes, but this was one of the best! We will definitely be back!
