Why Jason Dilts chose Los Angeles

It sits directly in between the Marina Del Rey Beach and the Venice Grand Canal. Both 1 block away in either direction. The modern beach furnishings, local art and outdoor patio were designed to make this your zen retreat

What makes this condo unique

Great condo near plenty of restaurants and the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was amazing. Plenty of space and ammenties provided such as bikes and a notebook of activities to partake in. If you are looking for an affordable place to stay, I highly recommend this condo. The professionalism that my guest and I received was awesome, and we will be using the condo again on our next trip. We also loved how Eco-friendly the property is. Five stars across the board!!!!!

Family vacation with 2 teenagers

  • 5 of 5

The condo is clean. The beds are comfy. The living room is spacious with a huge tv. The bikes are a great deal. Laundry on premise! The hosts are very nice and extremely easy to work with. The location is superb!! Another lamp in the bedroom with 2 queen beds and the dining table area would be a nice addition but that wouldn't stop us from going back. Lovely place overall!

Great Place, Great Host and in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay here in the Zen Down Condo. It was perfect accommodations for the six of us (4 adults & 2 kid's). The property was clean and comfortable. Andrew was a great host and made sure that our check-in process (being we got in really late) was stress free. He even called my Dad not too long after we arrived to make sure everything was good and to let him know he would be by in the morning to greet him. And as he said he would be, he was there the next morning. You can tell that he really tries to accommodate his guests, making sure they are comfortable and enjoy their stay.

The house is within walking distance to everything you could need (e.g. the beach, restaurants and coffee) and just a short drive to shopping, museums and other interests in the LA area.

We would definitely choose this property to come back to for our next visit!!

Great away from the noise spot

  • 5 of 5

The owner and his representative did everything and beyond to make our stay perfect, even providing a softer mattress top the same day. We stayed in 2 of the 3 units and would return without question.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Prior reviews pretty much cover everything!!

Though Andrew was traveling during our stay, everything was taken care of flawlessly. Everything here is well represented on this site. One extra treat was enjoying the daily presence of a beautiful parrot/macaw (?) just outside the kitchen window!

I absolutely/highly recommend this property and look forward to booking with Andrew, when possible, in the future!
