One House to Ocean - BEST-AT-THE-OCEAN – California Dreamin’

Located at the quiet end of the Marina Peninsula (but close to all the activity), with its separate and private entrance on a beautiful tree-lined walk street with open views to the golden sand beach and sparkling ocean, you simply cannot find a more exciting location to spend your well-earned California vacation. Walk 1 block to the jetty where Marina del Rey meets the Pacific Ocean…sit and watch the sailboats, yachts and kayaks come and go. It’s great for people watching, too! Walk or bike (4 bikes provided) a few minutes north to the Venice Beach boardwalk and participate in or enjoy watching the activities surrounding you – roller blading, bicycling, jogging, skate boarding. You might even catch a TV show or movie being filmed. Swim, sunbathe, take long beach walks, enjoy the beautiful sunsets, boogie board, bodysurf, kayak, fish – your choice – it’s all right here. Or just relax at home on the serene roof top deck while absorbing the beauty surrounding this charming getaway.

This 3+ level - 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home has an elevator for those of you who don’t like stairs. There is a second living area/den and deck on the top level. Best-at-the-Ocean has a very open and spacious floor plan, decorated in a combination of Asian style and casual beach living. You get it all - sun, sand and zen. Two reserved, tandem parking spaces come with Best-at-the-Ocean.

With its Asian feel, this elegant, and comfortable vacation rental is architecturally interesting. One level up from the entry, is a large, very private master suite with a king bed and its own ensuite bath with shower. Going up another level, you will find a living/dining room combination, a kitchen and a second bedroom with a queen bed and bath with shower. There is a gas-burning fireplace in the living room. An elevator takes you from the entry level and can stop at the master bedroom and at the living room level. For those who wish to dine at home, the kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances and comes stocked with spices, cooking oils, and a pantry of condiments. All you need to do is supply your favorite fresh foods and drinks. A few steps up from the main living room, on another level, is a spacious rooftop den and deck with comfy sitting areas, a desk and windows all around. From here, there is access to a large sunny deck. The views are wonderful.

A 5-minute drive brings you to shopping in Marina Del Rey and Venice Beach. Santa Monica is next door. Visit the nearby farmers markets or enjoy eating Italian, Mexican, Thai, seafood, pizza or local dishes in quaint Marina Del Rey, Venice Beach and Santa Monica. Walk or bike the picturesque canals of Venice Beach.

If you wish to keep in touch with the world outside, we provide wireless and wired high-speed broadband internet (printer is connected to the network).

About Noi or Jamie

We have lived in this area for a long time. Residents and visitors to the area find it charming.

Noi or Jamie purchased this house in 2000

Why Noi or Jamie chose Venice

The location is very close to Los Angeles International Airport, yet it is just off the Ocean at the very quiet end of the peninsula on a serene walk street and open corner lot. The building is open, light and airy.

What makes this house unique

Bicycle on the Sand to Venice Beach Boardwalk, Farmer Markets, restaurants, etc... Boogie board, swim, walk & relax on the serene part of the Beach. Four bicycles are provided with the rental. Two reserved tandem parking spaces come with Best-at-the-Ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The location is wonderful and the house is exquisite. You have thought of everything that a person would need. We also loved sitting in the massage chair. We would love the chance to stay here again. It was really a nice family trip. Thank you for everything.

Best Vacation Rental To Date

  • 5 of 5

The location was amazing and as described, a quiet area with views of the beach. We loved spending time on the rooftop deck and got to watch the sailboat regatta the day we arrived. The house is beautiful and had everything we could need, it was like a home away from home. There was lots to do and see with Venice Beach and the Santa Monica Pier nearby. There were great restaurants around the marina which we really enjoyed. We have recommended this place to our family and friends and would love to come back again next year! Thanks so much for the wonderful experience.

close to the beach and very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the vistas from the kitchen, and rooftop patio- although our weather was chilly. This house is close to the beach and drives along the coast. Owners were very responsive to our needs, and really made our stay enjoyable.

Great Property/Well Managed

  • 5 of 5

Took my entire family of 6 (wife and four kids) on our Spring Break to visit my mother who lives in L.A. It was a good time and even she was impressed with the lay out, decor, and how well we all could spread out in the space. Great property, location, and the massage chair was an extra special bonus. My wife absolutely loved that and was in it every evening we were there before bedtime. Appreciated the hospitality and professionalism of the property manager and the thoughtfulness to call just to make sure all was good during our stay. Thank you for making it truly feel like a home away from home. We look forward to our return to this location again.

Great Location, Clean, & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Us: 2 mothers/daughters to celebrate last spring break of high school. We did rent a car; but if you want to stay around the area, can find most things about a mile down the road near Venice Beach or Uber/Lift. We were very comfortable staying in this unit of a 3 unit home. Had we not known there were 3 units, we would have thought it was a single family home; very private. We felt very save in this neighborhood. Relatively easy access to all of the locations we were interested in visiting (Venice Beach, Santa Monica Pier, Downtown LA, Rodeo Drive, Hollywood Stars walk). Property was clean inside & out. Kitchen perfect for any meal preparation you want. We had dinner in most nights and breakfast on the terrace the last morning. Go to Ralph's for your groceries; there are two within a few miles ~ one in each direction (N/S).

Comfortable home very close to Venice & Santa Monica amenities and the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week at the Best-At-The-Beach with our family. The location was great - my husband and I enjoyed walks along the beach every morning, but also enjoyed the close proximity to the marina and all the seafood restaurants. The house is great for a family with teenagers as there is plenty of space and enough bedrooms to accommodate everyone. The bikes were a big hit, and used everyday to travel to the Santa Monica pier and 3rd Street Promenade. The massage chair was a nice bonus after a day of touring! Overall it was a hit and we'd definitely stay again if touring around the LA area.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with our choice to stay at this home. Lots of room for all of us plus so many beautiful bonuses... the massage chair that other travellers have mentioned was one of our favourites!

A perfect location to be close to the beach and close to Venice, Marina del Rey, and the airport. Jacqui was incredibly responsive to our questions and requests. Couldn't have been a better place to stay for our group!
