We totally enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying there again. It was very clean, excellent location close to the beach, safe, a full kitchen, comfortable bed, direct TV and everything that we needed. Ray paid attention to every detail. Some of the special things that he provided included coffee, beach towels, coolers for the beach, toiletries, to name a few. Everything worked. Even the neighbors were friendly. Ray provided full support and was very responsive. Thanks Ray for making this a great trip.
Marina Del Rey Vacation
We had a wonderful time. Nice location and very close to beach and restaurants.
Don’t make us leave😫!
Perfect stay again as in the 5 or 6 previous stays in Ray’s Unit 1! So clean and well equipped for a few nights or several weeks. It is quiet and safe. Ray is always easy to reach in the slight chance you might need to. We have one time during one of our visits only to help us figure out one of the remote controls. This little gem is close to the beach, restaurants, bars and coffee shops. We are already looking at the calendar to plan a repeat visit!
Home Away From Home Next to the Beach
Ray J. is an experienced host, and our stay was very comfortable. The apartment is clean, well-appointed with modern furnishings (except maybe for the sleeper sofa in the living room, my son said the sleeper mattress was very uncomfortable) and the host had provided all the amenities that one would need in a hotel near the beach. The reserved parking spot up front is priceless since the condo is only a couple of blocks away from the beach and parking in the street is almost impossible to find. Ray J is a very thoughtful host, the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to dine in. The bathroom has a jet bathtub, hotel-quality hair dryers and all the toiletries that you may need, incl. first aid kit, cotton calls and Q tips. The host has even provided oversized beach towels, beach totes and a cooler, so visitors are all set for a day at the beach. High-end security and electronic locks make checking in and entry super efficient. Instructions are detailed and every question is anticipated, items are clearly labeled throughout the apartment.
I am sorry your son was uncomfortable. There is a foam topper for the pull couch in the closet. It makes it the bed much more comfortable. It is mentioned in the description of the unit. Maybe I will have to put something in the unit, as this is the second time someone has not known about the topper. I am sorry you did see the info about the topper.
Thank you for the feedback.
This condo is very nice, very clean and fully equipped. The bed is quite comfortable. A very short walk to the beach and restaurants. If you want to hang out in the evening, there are lots of dvds to watch.
Great Place in Venice beach. Highly recommended
We stayed three nights. The place is excellent. Very clean with modern appliances. The apt is barely 3 min walk to the beautiful Venice Beach. The apt is tucked away from the main street and as such is a very quiet place. Lots of restaurants , coffee shops and stores within a block of the apartment. The owner was very responsive to text or emails. Our only complaint is the quality of the mattress on the sofa bed. Its fine as a sofa . But as a bed the mattress is of poor quality and our son got severe back aches sleeping on it. The mattress needs to be replaced. Otherwise a 5 star place. We will definitely go back again and will recommend to our friends.
The mattress in the pull-out couch is of very high quilty for a pull-out couch. After all, It has to fold to fit in the couch. That is why there is a thick foam topper for the pull-out couch kept in the closet. You put that on top (as stated in the listing) and it is very comfortable. I am sorry you did not use the foam topper, your son could have a better sleep. Thank you. Ray j.
Go to the beach! Seriously, go to the beach. This is the thing that makes Venice the most special place on earth.
The World famous Venice Beach Boardwalk is not to be missed.
