Top 20 Marina del Rey, Los Angeles vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
The largest man-made marina in the US, Marina del Rey consists mainly of large condo towers and apartment complexes, thousands of boats of all sizes, and a curious population of sea lions. The entire neighbourhood feels artificially constructed (probably because it is) and lacks a cohesive feeling, but it's hard to beat the views and location. While not a dining paradise in its own right, Marina del Rey – or MdR for short – does have a number of decent restaurants so you won't have to go far if you don't feel like cooking at home. And of course it's an easy walk along the gorgeous beach to lively Venice if you're after a bit more buzz. How many neighbourhoods can offer turtle racing? This one can! Thursday nights at Brennans Bar - not to be missed.
