Why owner/property manager chose Los Angeles County

We have traveled all over the world in 4 &5 star resorts and each and every time we booked rooms with Amazing Ocean Views in Italy,Greece, Fiji & Thailand so we purchased this house because of the Serenity, and the Amazing Amazing Sunset Ocean Views. Plus the the wildlife! Today a baby whale came into the Marina. Last week we saved a baby baby seal.The duck park is just 1/2 block away for the kids . The playground is 1 block away with a play structure,basketball courts,baseball field,& volley ball courts. Plus, the Ballona Wetlands has over 500 species of birds is 5 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

Your just a leisure bike ride away from the craziness in Venice but still have a beach retreat to go to at the end of the day with AMAZING views! We have new bikes to head down the bike path to visit Santa Monica, Venice, Malibu, Marina Del Rey and Manhattan Beach and beyond!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have spent in the LA house 4 most beautiful days in our US trip. It was great having the beach right in front of your door. The host 'Juliete' was awsome. She brought to our kids all the toys they dreamt of (nerf guns, boards, bubble toys, glow sticks). The beach is quiet, nice and peaceful. You can realy rest there in comparison to Venice beach. Bike trips was a great fun for us, going south to venice or exploring the barbecue pits at Dockweilers beach on north. I would return there again!

Fabulous month long stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our vacation at J's beautiful beach front retreat. The location was perfect for us, and J thought of everything to ensure we would love our stay. The property is spotless and includes many extras, that we have not seen in rentals in the past. Best was the bikes for the wonderful coastal bike path. We brought 2 of our own, but the extras came in handy a few times for guests. J is very responsive and easy to reach for any questions or concerns. I highly recommend renting any of her properties.

Beautiful view, Charming residence and wonderful host.

  • 5 of 5

It was an absolute pleasure staying in the property. After renting several other oceanfront properties recently... I can honestly say that this property is one of the nicest available in the price range. The home was clean, neat and inviting. I'm a bit of a germophobe so I wasn't a fan of staying in a personal residence. However, the owner Jay goes above and beyond to make you feel like you are in a five star resort!!!! There were fresh flowers, top of the line linens / bedding, fresh milk, my favorite wine, ZERO dust/dirt and the home had no smell...there's nothing worse than walking in and smelling the last tenants leftovers (trust me it happens more times than not). I could go on and on about how gorgeous the home and view was... The experience was nothing short of amazing!!! The only downside is that there's a typical parking crunch in the area so if you have a large car or multiple cars... Plan to rent a compact during your stay or park your car and use the complimentary bikes :)

I would definitely rate the property, amenities, location and owner A+++++++.

An absolute gem!

Fantastic vacation on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family flew from Florida and Texas to celebrate our daughter's graduation from USC and just spent a wonderful time in this lovely beach home with an absolutely magnificent view. In addition to the property being exactly as described and photographed, it was so private, beautiful, and relaxing. Since I cook a lot, I was very pleased that the pantry was very well stocked and the kitchen had an extensive collection of everything needed for cooking and serving. JC was the perfect hostess who even asked for our preference to add to coffee and then provided our half and half with a variety of coffees. She could not have been more accommodating. I definitely highly recommend this clean and well-maintained property to anyone who wants to spend a wonderful time with family and/or friends right on the beach.

Relax -- Exercise -- Relax -- Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five rented this beautiful property for 5 nights at the beginning of August. We cycled (with bikes provided by the owner) the entire 20+ mile strip from Torrance to the south to beyond Santa Monica to the north and the nicest part of the beach is Playa del Rey. The property is clean comfortable and beautiful. Having the fridge stocked with water, beer, fruit, and even lactose-free milk was greatly appreciated. The sliding patio doors lead onto a small patio with a comfy couch and then you step right out onto the beach which in this area is quiet and spectacular. Playa del Rey is quiet with a great breakfast place, a great supper place (Cafe Pinguini) and one is close to major grocery stores. What a great place to relax, cycle, play basketball (there are 2 courts a five minute walk from the property) and relax some more. Highly recommended.
