Request to Book

This super fun family home in Mar Vista has a fantastic garden, high-ceilinged rooms and plenty of toys and games, and sleeps up to 4 +1. Modelled on a 1920s Cape Cod residence, white is the dominant color and the feeling is light and airy. The main living area is a double height lounge, leading to a small dining nook and family kitchen, and the whole property is light, bright and on one floor. The living space leads to a sunny deck and large fun garden, with swings, a play fort and separate areas for wheely toys, lawn games and relaxing. We love the amount of space on offer, the bright colors and the provision for kids of all ages. Best of all, the residence is a 15-minute bike ride to Venice Beach.

Mar Vista, Los Angeles

Close to the beach

Sandwiched between Culver City and Venice Beach, this family-friendly neighborhood has palm tree-lined boulevards and friendly neighbors and is a great spot for a family break near the sea. Grab some bikes and strike out - it’s around 10-15 minutes to the beach - or spend time playing at the Mar Vista Recreation Area.
