Marina Del Rey
Marina del Rey is a lovely seaside community nestled around the largest, man-made pleasure boat harbor in the world. People are certainly drawn here for the temperate climate, and ocean breezes keep L.A.’s notorious smog away. Here you’ll find luxurious homes, all built in the finest designs that area builders and architects could create. Built around the largest manmade small-boat harbor in the world, Marina del Rey is home to over 6,000 pleasure boats and yachts.
Marina del Rey boasts its own Fisherman’s Village, world-class shopping, gourmet restaurants, luxury lodging and a reputation as one of the fastest growing areas in Los Angeles county.
Because public parking is extremely limited, crowds are kept away from Marina del Rey’s local beaches. Residents of this proud community are left with quiet, family beaches to enjoy; there’s no need to travel to Malibu or Manhattan Beach for a relaxing afternoon on the sand.
Marina del Rey is also practically on the doorstep of L.A.’s Westside
- 20 minutes from Beverly Hills
- 10 minutes from the L.A.X. International airport
- 30 minutes from downtown L.A.
Local shops and restaurants are at your fingertips in such areas as nearby Venice Beach and Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade, Main Street, and Montana Avenue. And from Marina del Rey, it is only a couple hours by car to nearby ski slopes.
The Marina del Rey community continues to take pride in its neighborhood and is also undergoing a renovation program to help improve the Marina. In addition, there are many larger developments going into the Marina, including rental and commercial property, apartments, and a new hotel on the corner of Via Marina and Tahiti Way.

The Silver Strand and Marina del Rey’s Peninsula neighborhoods are both excellent oceanfront communities in which to settle and call home.
