Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is very clean, updated, and cozy. It really is like a home away from home. There's a nice yard here that's very open with comfortable lounge chairs & patio furniture. Close to the marina and shops. Great place for a family. Kitchen has high-end appliances, including washer & dryer. Kitchen had everything we needed to make home cooked meals. Everything worked perfectly. Close to a very nice park. If you need to hit the beaches or L.A. tourist traps, you have to rent a car. Franco and Iris were great hosts. They were warm & inviting. The place has everything you need for a comfortable stay and a safe neighborhood feel. Would stay there again.

Stunning, Clean, prime location and the best hosts you can ask for

I have stayed here many times before and this remains my #1 choice whenever I travel to Southern California. The owners constantly upgrade the facilities and I have never had an instance when I needed something addressed and didn't have it taken care of immediately.

Brilliant location, loved the back garden more than anything. Franco was always very helpful as was his neighbour liz. She was always on hand when needed. House has everything u could ever need. There's no better place to stay than this home. Definitely our choice when we stay in L.A next time. Thanks for everything

Great house in LA!

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 persons staying in Prima Marina Del Rey early July and it was a great experience!

The house was very well maintained, exactly as described in the listing at HomeAway and in many reviews here, and very comfortable and spacious for 4 persons. We also loved the large patio where we spent a lot of time!

The location is also great - not too far away from the beaches and in a quiet neighbourhood.

This is definitely the place we would choose again if we return to LA and we will definitely recommend it to all our friends in Sweden!

Thanks Franco!

Best regards, Anders, Annica, Katarina & Sonny

Great place to stay convenient access to beach and bike paths.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this house. It was very clean and the kitchen was extremely well stocked with everything we needed. The hot tub is very large which took a little while to get it to reach a very hot temperature but that was fine since my son would have over heated in it otherwise. A very private space and location you barely knew you were in the city it was so nice and quiet. Access to stores and places to go was also very easy. All in all a great stay and highly recommended.

Very enjoyable property!

  • 5 of 5

Four "older" adults needed a place to stay for a family visit. The apartment/condo was a perfect place! It comes well equipped with all the essentials needed. Inside was roomy, clean and well maintained! Outside was a delight! It was so large, we invited our California family there for a Mother's Day cookout, and everyone had plenty of space! Franco and Iris were available to answer any questions we had! I will definitely consider staying there again.

Great place with an awesome, hands-off owner

  • 4 of 5

I'm going to keep it short and to the point:

- the place was worth the money

- the yard was awesome (heat lamps, fire pit, hot tub, Bluetooth speakers)

- interior was attractive

- cute kitchen with plenty of plates, cups, cookware

- the electric stove wasn't very intuitive, so I didn't use it

- did I mention the hot tub?

- proximity to grocery stores, pharmacies, etc. was great because we didn't have to get on the brutal highways

I liked it. If I returned to Venice Beach, I would reach out to Franco about this property again.
