Marina del Rey vacation rentals

The Harbor of the King

Its name means Harbor of the King, and yacht-filled Marina del Rey lives up to the billing. It’s the perfect vacation spot for exploring LA, Venice Beach, and Santa Monica, while also offering a great beachfront location to enjoy. There’s great shopping, fine dining, and a lively nightlife scene to discover – plus fantastic water sports like surfing, sailing, sport fishing, and paddle boarding. Marina del Rey vacation rentals range from sleek, modern condos with panoramic ocean views to quirky houseboat-like yachts and beautiful sailboats – the perfect way to make the most of your ocean-front location.

Ocean activities at Marina del Rey

Wherever you’re in Marina del Rey, you’re close to the ocean, so if you’re staying at a Marina del Rey vacation rental there’s no excuse not to get out on the water. Head down to the harbor and charter a private skippered yacht to cruise the Southern California coast, or take a guided tour for sport fishing, whale watching, or spotting the pelicans and sea lions that call the bay home. There are also plenty of activities to enjoy closer to shore: SUP, parasailing, or even hang-gliding. If you prefer to be on dry land, why not rent a bicycle and follow the boardwalk to Venice Beach – a scenic 15-minute ride away.

Close to LA’s attractions

The Los Angeles hop-on, hop-off double-decker bus tour stops at Marina del Rey’s Fisherman’s Village, a waterfront mall in the style of a New England fishing village. This makes it practical to explore beyond Marina del Rey – putting LA attractions like Sunset Boulevard, the Chinese Theater, Griffith Observatory, Chinatown, and Grand Central Market in easy reach. Closer to home, the green and manicured Burton Chace Park offers beautiful ocean vistas and is the perfect place to head for a morning jog, leisurely picnic, or BBQ, or to relax and soak up some California sunshine.

Year-round warmth in Marina Del Rey

Marina Del Rey’s average annual temperature is higher than the national, with winter lows only falling to the high 40s at worst, and can climb into the 60s. You can essentially enjoy a stable warm and pleasant climate all through the year at your Marina del Rey vacation rental, while summer brings the Summer Concert Series and Movies in the Park to Marina del Rey. And you can just relax by the waterfront at Burton Chace Park and spend an evening soaking up the Southern Californian vibes and ocean views.

Ocean views in Marina Del Rey

Marina Beach lagoon by the Marina del Rey harbor has a roped off swimming and wading area, and is popular with families – earning it the nickname of Mother’s Beach. To the south of the Marina, the Ballona Creek and Wetlands offer sanctuary for many seabirds and are a good spot for birders. Cyclists shouldn’t miss exploring the Marvin Braude Coastal Bike Trail, which runs along the Pacific coastline. The scenery here might seem familiar, because it’s featured in numerous movies and TV shows. It passes through Marina del Rey, and provides a fun way to explore the glitzy beach towns along the famous Strand.
