My kids want to move

  • 5 of 5

Having found easily the location of the rental. Steven was with us in under 5 mins of calling. He showed us around and explained all there was to know about the property. Knowing that after a transatlantic flight ,only about 25% would sink in . He said to call anytime if we needed help. Which we did for minor annoying "English Tourist type" problems

He is a very kind man and i would recomend the property for those who have children who want to get to the beach, when we went in mid Oct,there was no lifeguard at the nearest guard hut area,so be aware for younger ones. and see the strange life around "Venice Beach" area. My Wife and Grown up Teenage girls were very happy and if they are happy. Boy so am i.

Great apartment - we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment in Galleon St was a good size well appointed and immediately felt like home. The owner was very helpful and flexible regarding arrival and departure arrangements. The rooms were all a good size as is the garage which included bikes and beach toys at our disposal. Everything we needed was in place which allowed us to focus on enjoying our stay. The location is great, literally a 2 min walk to the beautiful Marina Del Rey beach and a short walk from the Marina in one direction and Venice and muscle beaches in the other.

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

This was out first time to Marina del Rey. We have kids ranging from 10-17, and this was the perfect place for all ages. It was large enough for a family of 6 without feeling like we were on top of each other. We loved that we could walk everywhere (especially if we had been driving around during part of the day) and just a block from the beach. Also, having laundry in the unit was a plus for a mom of 4! The owners were wonderful! We hope to plan another trip!

Very beautiful and homely

  • 5 of 5

The place was very clean and there were supplies for us to use. When we had a minor problem, it was fixed immediately. The location is excellent and very close to the beach and restaurants. We will surely stay there next time when we travel to LA.

Could not ask for more!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in years not renting a beach front condo and I had many concerns. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the beach just a short walk away. We spent our days in the sand and our nights in the condo enjoying the BBQ, playing cards, etc. The condo is well appointed, spacious and very comfortable! The beds were excellent and although the California nights can be cool, it was nice to have the option to use the A/C to sleep. Shops and restaurants are a short walk away. The unit has a few bikes available for use, which we enjoyed. The garage is also stocked with beach gear. Would recommend this property to anyone and look forward to staying here again. Thanks, Steve.

A group of Swedish doctors hoping to go back again

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Steven's apartment for 2,5 months and we couldn't have wished for a better place to stay! The apartment was fresh and very well maintained, we had all we could possibly need to cook our huge turkey for Thanksgiving but also for bbq in the charming front garden. Our two cars fit perfectly into the garage, we had a 45 seconds walk to the beach for morning runs and sports, the area felt calm and safe, we didn't hesitate to take evening walks around 10 pm. Wi-fi and washer/dryer made our stay very easy. We felt at home right at once and Steven was extremely helpful whenever we had any questions, he also met us at the house when we arrived from LAX and provided us with lots of useful information! 15 min walk to Venice, 35 to Santa Monica, nice restaurants in the neighborhood, grocery store 10 min by car, easy access to most of the freeways. Bicycles in the garage for excursions during the weekends. We would love to go back sometime and we would definitely recommend it!! Take a morning walk, watch the sunrise and the surfers go into the sea, have breakfast on the deck and enjoy the beautiful area.
