The Jungle Condo Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Our recently remodeled 4 bedroom, 2 bath quaint beach duplex has all the amenities you need to settle right in and feel ‘at home’. With a total of 1500 sq ft, this upper floor unit can comfortably accommodate two families. We prefer children over the age of 5 for the consideration of our lower unit guests.

Take your pick of the huge 500 sq ft master bedroom with king size sleigh bed and private en suite bathroom with double vanity and laundry, the Tommy Bahama room with 4 poster queen bed, the Mermaid room with a queen bed or the surfer bunk bed room with 2 twins and 1 full bed for the kids. All bedrooms have new mattresses and quality linens plus ipod clock radios.

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, a fold out dining room table or dine al fresco at the picnic table outside with seating for 8.

Enjoy morning coffee or a glass of wine at sunset from the comfortable balcony filled with rattan & bamboo furniture, flowers 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 (52” with DVD, CD, surround sound and Ipod dock) and one in the master bedroom (47”).

With breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean from Palos Verdes to Catalina Island to Malibu, this cozy beachfront 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 it’s solitude and ‘small town’ feel. Sleep peacefully to the sound of the ocean waves.

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.

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

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!

It doesn't get better than this!

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled a lot out of the country for various beach vacations and one thing we kept asking ourselves after staying a week at this property in both units was, why? This place has it all, and we mean ALL! I'm just going to start a list, but this in no way is complete: waking up to the ocean view from the beach house, the gorgeous sunsets, the surf perfect for boogie boarding and surfing, the velvety sand, the beach volleyball, the bike path, the dolphins, the sea lions, the heat lamp next to the cozy outdoor furniture, the immaculately clean and beautifully decorated beach house that has you wanting for nothing because everything from a blender to a crock pot to a skim board are among what you'd have at home and more. The town of Playa del Rey is absolutely charming and we spent as much time on the bikes cruising the shoreline or the marina, going to Senor G's for deliciously freshly made juices or Tanner's coffee where we drank Snow Monkey Plum tea...such unique drinks. And we loved the authentic Italian food at Cantalini's. Of course, a review wouldn't be complete without mention of the beds, which were so very comfortable! We stayed at the beach house for a family reunion as well as a retirement celebration for grandpa and it is unanimous by all from the littlest guy to grandpa that this will be one of our fondest memories. This is a fabulous property and Sherry and Stephen take pride in every detail, plus they are wonderful to know. It was so hard to leave, but we'll absolutely be back!!

Spectacular beach front location

The unit was clean, nicely decorated, well maintained and exceptionally well equipped. The ocean views from the spacious balcony were awesome and the sunsets amazing. The hosts were both welcoming and caring.

This beach house was amazing! We especially loved the view and how spacious it was.

  • 5 of 5

I rented out this beach house for my parents for my Dad's 60th birthday. They enjoyed watching the sunset from the patio each night and waking up to the sound of the waves. It was everything they hoped it would be and more. Sherry was a great host and even allowed us to use her beach chairs and tables. We highly recommend this beach house and look forward to renting it again in the future!

Fabulous Beach Front

  • 5 of 5

The owner met us at the door when we arrived and gave us a tour of the whole place. There was a whole closet full of 'toys'. Beach chairs, coolers, body boards and etc.. Very well stocked. Sherry also gave us the scoop on where to go for eating, groceries etc... Great location within walking distance of tons of great restaurants. The highlight of the place was the deck. We spent the majority of our time there. The ocean view and sound was incredible. Why would anyone rent a house there and not be ON THE BEACH? Best dinner was at Cantalini's Salerno Beach Restaurant. Great Italian food. We also met 'Mo' at Mo's Place. Fabulous neighborhood bar with great pub fare. Of course we went to Venice beach to see the sights but the beach by the house was our favorite hangout. Went for a run or walk on the boardwalk every day. The house was clean and well stocked. The master bedroom was awesome. I would definitely stay there again.

Perfect Beach House !!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything from the beginning was perfect.The communication from Sherry(Property Owner) was awesome.She has thought of everything from seamless check-ins to outfitting the house with anything you would need for the beach.I am extremely picky and really wanted to stay at The Ritz Carlton like we have done in years past.My wife decided to rent the Beach House instead.I was not disappointed.The house has beautiful furniture and decor that will satisfy the most discriminating people,(Myself).Drinking my coffee on the deck overlooking the beach every morning was my favorite.I would highly recommend this rental,that is more like a Home,to anyone,

Ocean Forever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a location for a family reunion celebrating my mother’s 90th birthday. We made the right choice. This place is amazing. We rented both the upstairs and the downstairs. My mother was able to watch the ocean from the downstairs patio. The view was only surpassed by one from the upstairs balcony. The rooms were comfortable and well-laid out. Everything, towels, beach towels, supplies etc was provided. Sherry (the owner) made things very easy. Everyone had a great time. Some did some side trips to Disneyland, Hollywood, a surf competition in Huntington Beach. There was ocean swimming, volleyball, football on the beach. However, just relaxing, reading, watching the sun gone down while sipping a glass of wine was the biggest hit. I highly recommend this location. It was great for our family reunion, but I think a couple, especially if they stayed upstairs, would find this a wonderful getaway.
