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.

Super location and extremely well stocked

Beach across the street. Bikes, boogie boards and beach chairs all included. House well stocked w everything we needed. Construction noise never an issue. Massage chair was perfect after a long day at Disneyland!

Very comfortable and less than 1 block away from the beach

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely beautiful and comfortable. The owners were very quick to respond to any questions. It was perfect for my family and each room allowed the occupants privacy. It is located on the street right by the beach and is an easy 1 mile walk/run to Venice Beach and the Venice downtown area. We were in town for a wedding over in City of Industry. Just FYI to anyone staying in the Marina del Ray area, traffic is always bad if you need to go through or past LA. We intentionally picked this property because we wanted to be near the water and do things up in Santa Monica. My family and I would definitely stay at this property again if we're in California.

Wonderful: 5 out of 5

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 8th-16th Sept 2017 and thought the house was excellent. It has a lovely Japanese feel to it and is extremely welcoming. After the bedlam of driving around LA (a GPS is a necessity!), we really looked forward to sitting on the terrace in the evening with a Chardonnay to watch the sun go down. There was a race, too, between our kids for the bedroom that led out to the terrace... I can see why! The living room is spacious and, when we did come in in the evenings (it did tend to get a bit cool), it was a great place to sit and watch films on the huge TV in the warm. Given its size, it was still a really snug area. The bedrooms were in keeping with the feel of the house and the beds are comfortable, too. The kitchen is very well stocked with absolutely everything you could need, including a well stocked larder... never seen THAT before! Marina Del Rey itself is a very quiet area and something of an oasis away from LA and even Venice Beach (a 15 minute walk away where there are a few restaurants). The huge beach (it really is yards away) is brilliant and during weekdays is pretty much deserted; even at weekends it's not that busy. Four miles up the road at Santa Monica it's a different story! We can't recommend Best-At-The-Ocean enough; it was a delight to stay there and wish we could go back.

Oh, a word about the construction next door - we were advised by the owners about it before we went, so we knew - as such, we had no issue. But for those who need to know these things, yes, they start at 7am but generally finish at 4pm... and they don't work on Sunday.... it certainly didn't spoil our stay, though.

Thanks, Jacqui, Noi & Jamie, for letting us stay in your lovely beachside home. It was great!

Great location and plenty of room for the whole family. Massage chair was a big hit!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this location for four night and loved the location. It was a quick trip from the airport to the rental so traffic was not much of an issue for us. The home had several levels with places to sleep so each of our teenagers felt like they had their own space. There was a battle to see who would get the massage chair first every night. We walked down to Venice where there were plenty of restaurants and had a rooftop view of the ocean. The weather was cool (just right) near the water during the heat of summer. We had a great time and would use the same rental again.
