Top 20 Mar Vista, Los Angeles vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Wedged between Venice and Culver City, Mar Vista has previously been a relatively sleepy neighbourhood that many Angelinos would have had a hard time placing without a map, but that’s all changing and fast. With stylish new restaurants and cafés plus fun and quirky independent boutiques, Mar Vista offers plenty of excellent options to eat, drink, shop and explore. Once a powerhouse of lima bean farming in the 1930s, Mar Vista is now a cool but more mellow neighbour to the trendy and happening Venice, and that's the way its residents like it. This is a mostly residential area of single-family homes and some smaller apartment buildings, with shops and restaurants clustered around its main thoroughfare, Venice Boulevard. As Venice prices have skyrocketed, more and more people are flocking to Mar Vista for slightly more affordable homes and a lot more space for the money.
