Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Breathtaking Escape. Mark Lewis gave me prompt responses and instructions that made booking easy and allowed me to concentrate on arranging other activities in the area. The condo was roomy, clean, and filled with features and amenities. The location made easy access to the beach walk and the Marina Del Rey canal that was full of activity from boats to and from the ocean. I used the two car garage providing parking for local guests in the area in addition to my rental car. We walked along the beach walk to Venice Beach for shopping and restaurants. Car travel to the airport, Costco, and other restaurants was simple with only a few arterials that took us anywhere. I may plan annual events to meet my family members at this location.

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect location for us . The penthouse is spacious and has all amenities that a high end hotel has . It's on quiet site of the Marina but not far from major attractions . Mark is responsive to all over requests . Initially I had some concern for the property without AC . But with the ceiling fans in the living room and bedrooms it's really not an issue. Also the rooftop really makes this property outstanding . The whole family really enjoys the stay . Definitely we will come back later.

Wonderful Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you step into this penthouse, all your stress disappears! We were two families from Texas staying in California while our daughters played in several beach tournaments in Hermosa, Long Beach and Santa Monica. The location was wonderful for this purpose.

The penthouse was spacious, comfortable and well appointed. Our favorite place on the property would have to be the two roof top patios. The adults used one and the girls used the other. Our host welcomed us as soon as we got there and walked us through the place. We did have one problem with the hatch on the upper patio not working and Mark immediately had someone out to fix the problem. The beds were comfortable for all. The washer/dryer was a plus. We used the bikes to visit our cousins in Venice. The girls were able to practice at the volleyball courts on our beach and we had chairs and umbrellas to take to the tournaments. We could not have asked for a better place to stay!! We will definitely be back to this property.

Great Location, perfect Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting the penthouse. Very short walk to the beach and marina. We walked down to Venice pier every morning for coffee (The Cows End). We had bikes, beach chairs, beach umbrellas and even a few boogie boards at our disposal. Mark the host has thought of everything. Of course the accommodations are first rate, very comfortable and spacious. Will definitely make this a yearly thing!

Outstanding Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse is perfectly located. Near the beach and the marina area. Mark had 4 bikes with locks at the house available for us to use. We were able to bike over to the marina restaurants, down to the beach and over to the pier. Our favorite part of the trip was riding the bikes everywhere. Even when one of the bikes had a flat issue Mark was over to get it fixed ASAP. No bike downtime at all. With the amazing weather the roof top decks were awesome to enjoy breakfast and dinner with the beautiful marina view . The house is well equipped and stocked with towels , beach chairs, boogie boards etc. Mark even had a nice bottle of wine for us that we enjoyed out on the rooftop on our first night. We had 6 people in our group and plenty of sleeping room. Mark was a great host. We will be back again.
