Our stay with the entire Family including five adults and an infant was a blast. We came into a perfectly cleaned apartment providing us with everything we needed for a nice stay. Entering the PH was more coming to a Hotel than an apartment. The two bathrooms with really nice showers kept shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion and a whole lot of towels. We found a bottle of wine on the counter, fresh fruits and two bottles of water in the kitchen.

We really liked that Mark had extra beach towels, bikes and beach chairs down in the garage. The two top decks gave us a brilliant view to the Pacific Ocean, we enjoyed it every night.

After checking out we were getting back our full deposit the same day.

The stay was a blast and we will definitely come back. Thanks again Mark for an awesome stay.

2016 Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to L.A. with my two sisters, my daughter and two nieces. We arrived to find a very clean property with all of the promised amenities. It was a great, quiet location with plenty of room. We had a great time!

Spectacular Place

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on July 24th, and the place was clean and ready for us. I was initially concerned about the lack of central air, because we were checking in during a heat wave, but my fears were quickly put to rest as the home is very spacious with ceiling fans, and the owner also left additional fans in each bedroom. We were quite comfortable during our stay and enjoyed the ocean breezes. Every detail was seen to our comfort including hotel type shampoo's and soaps in the bathrooms. The kitchen was well equipped for our needs and the owner provided beach chairs and beach towels as well as bikes which we used and enjoyed. The location is fabulous, located in a quiet section of the beach so we had plenty of room to spread out. The roof decks were an added benefit, so much outdoor space for everyone to enjoy a little privacy or to gather as a group.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

Penthouse was great. Steps away from the beach. Close to locations around L.A. The family had a great time. View of the fireworks over the marine was spectacular, and fun to people watch as everyone left for the night down the street :). Will definitely be on our list to book when we come back to L.A.

Our family, including our yellow lab, loved Mark’s penthouse. After reading all the 5 star reviews we decided to rent the “Penthouse” to celebrate our daughter’s graduation from UCLA. The reviews from guests are accurate, the penthouse is amazing! Parking, view, spacious open floor plan, cooler, bikes, fresh flowers, spices, wine, barbecue grill - the penthouse has it all thanks to Mark. We had a most memorable time with family in beautiful Marina de Rey. The penthouse is the perfect vacation rental.

Above and Beyond!!!

  • 5 of 5

After reading all the reviews, I decided to rent Mark's penthouse. I have to say, my expectations were high and the entire VRBO experience far exceeded those expectations!

My son was graduating from USC Price School and I was heading from NY to LA and wanted him to stay with us. The penthouse accommodated the 5 of us splendidly. We spent a lot of family time on the rooftop decks overlooking the ocean! It was pure joy! Mark had wine and fruit waiting upon arrival. Was available at all times! If I could, would give it more stars!!!!
