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.

Great place for family or friends!

  • 4 of 5

Property was representative of photos and description. I did not think about A/C as a concern but it surly was as it was unseasonably warm our week . So we used the fans provided and kept all the windows and doors open, did not care for that, but that was really the only drawback. Had a problem with the bed first day and the owner came right over and fixed it. Great response to anything we needed.

The location is excellent, parking is included but it is tight for everyone. We were 5 tall adults and appreciated the roominess. Beds were comfy, kitchen and everything else was great. Great TVs in all the rooms. Laundry on premise and Jason was very helpful for towels and beach chairs.

Short walk to all the action that is Venice Beach, and 40 min or less to Hollywood or Beverly Hills in traffic. Great restaurants and nightlife.

We would stay here again.

Location! Location! Location!

  • 4 of 5

Walked to the beach every day - it's only 1.5 blocks away! Similarly close to the restaurants and beach shops of Marina Del Rey. Nice kitchen (the knives could use sharpening) and generous bedrooms. A little problem with the water: don't flush while someone's in the shower. But those are minor quibbles compared to the comfort and convenience of the place. The owner was very responsive before and during our stay. We had a grand time and would definitely stay here again.
