Perfect Vacation Getaway
Submitted: July 24, 2011
Stayed: July 2011
My husband and I booked this condo for 8 nights and really enjoyed our stay! Stephanie met us at the condo with the key when the taxi dropped us off from LAX. The condo was just as it appears in the photos above: super clean, stocked full of extra amenities, enough big fluffy white towels for two weeks, and located literally 70 steps to the beach!! We have vacationed to Marina del Rey in the past and the perfect weather was calling us back. Rather than staying in a hotel this vacation we booked this condo and couldn't have been happier with our choice. If you've never been to Marina del Rey you have to go and experience the beautiful beaches and the fantastic restaurants! Although there is a parking space provided at the condo, my husband and I decided to walk/bike everywhere this vacation since everything is literally a 5 minute walk a way. The restaurants on Washington Ave. have everything that you could possibly want: Mexican food, Mediterranean, Latin and Cuban cuisine, great pizza and wings, and more. There are plenty of happy hours too! The servers are very friendly and appreciate your patronage. The beaches are wide and inviting and with the condo being so close to the beach you can find a comfy spot on the beach and run back and forth as needed. We were excited to see dolphins on our first day at the beach and then realized that we saw them everyday we were at the beach. We also saw a seal playing in the ocean and then ride a wave in the surf between the swimmers!! Very cool! Depending on how much you like to walk, there is a boardwalk that stretches from Marina del Rey all the way to Santa Monica pier which is about a 3 mile one-way trip. There are several places to rent bicycles by the hour/day if you prefer a faster trip. On the days that you prefer to stay in, the condo has a great outdoor patio to just hang out and relax. There are permanent residents in the condo building that are super friendly but who also respect your privacy. Stephanie and David provided great customer service to us and we can't wait to plan our next vacation with them!
Tourists without a Car,
Owner's Response: Renee,
Thank you so much for staying at the beach studio, it is so nice to see people enjoy the clean beaches, take walks and really experience what Marina Del Rey has to offer. Our studio sits steps to the beach and we are glad you took advantage and saw dolphins and seals on your trip. Our studio by the beach is made for people like you who really know how to enjoy each moment. When you booked you told us the sun, surf and good weather is calling. We hope the weather calls you again soon so we can have great guests like you stay at our cute studio.
