Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for the 3 of us. It was clean and in a quiet area. Parking can be a little spotty. Coming in late at night and seeing cars occupy the 'designated' parking spot was mildly irritating. However, there is street parking nearby. Overall, I would definitely stay here again. I hope management addresses the parking situation. Check-in/Check-out was very smooth.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and we enjoyed hosting you! Future guests can rest assured that we provide on site parking to all guests and promptly address any issues related to spaced being occupied. In this instance, there were unauthorized cars parked on our property and once notified, they were quickly moved.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a amazing property with a great price, location and everything you'll need on your vacation. Jason and Andrew were more than helpful and always available for anything we needed. We couldn't of asked for a more perfect place to stay in the Venice/Marina Del Ray area. It's only a block away from Washington Street with restaurants, bars, GREAT coffee and only 1.5 blocks from the ocean. I would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a wonderful place to stay if you are headed to Southern California.

Thanks again Jason and Andrew, we really enjoyed our stay.

This was a great location at a good rate with reliable parking.

  • 5 of 5

Overall, this was worth 4.5 stars. The only complaints were variable water temp for both showers, a toilet that runs off and on throughout the day/night. The location is more like 1.5 blocks to the beach. Other than those few, no big deal, complaints, it was a very clean and accommodative condo. We would definitely recommend and would stay here again. Thanks for a great family vacation!

Great place and solid location!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, this place was a great find! The management was quick in response time and providing details; the location was pretty awesome just being a short walk to the beach; the condo itself was really nice with a nice kitchen, living room, and comfy beds, with a really clean, good looking decor.

The few knocks I have...the biggest was a pretty high refundable deposit! I just don't get it, if I stole a couch or bed or something then I wouldn't get my refund back? Or if we completely trashed the place? But I thought VRBO has somewhat of an insurance policy for these things that are that extreme? Anyhow, I guess that keeps teenagers from renting the place possibly, but it kind of sucks to pay that much, only to have that much credit sitting in your account a few months later. The other drawback, was the water pressure which was pretty horrible in the master bathroom while the temperature fluctuates from ice cold to super hot. I understand Cali is trying to save water, but I think I used way more water letting water drip from my hair on to the rest of my body, while taking steps back from the hot water during the cycle of hot and cold. Don't let the shower discourage you though, I just wanted to point it out.

In the end, the place was a great fit for being able to go out to the beach, grab meals, explore and have a great nights rest. They also provide bike rentals for a decent price if you want, which is probably way better than what they charge near the beach and lets you cruise around and sight see.

Owner's Response: There are two options for deposits: one is the refundable deposit, which this guest opted for. The other, and more popular, is the Property Damage Protection insurance that is offered via VRBO. We prefer that renters utilize this option but do allow for an alternative via a deposit if they do not. The water pressure issue has been resolved and we appreciate the guest bringing that to our attention.
