Del Rey Reviews

This area of Los Angeles is very diverse. You have multimillion-dollar homes next door to apartments, the wealthy area of Playa Vista down the street and a homeless problem that seems to be growing day by day. It's close to the beach, we have a great bike path/jogging path that extends into Culver City, and traffic is not too bad. If there wasn't a low-income housing project in the neighborhood, I think property values and local public schools would get a huge improvement, but they'll never get rid of it.

I love this sweet little nook cradled between Marina Del Rey, Culver City and th eback side of Venice. All of the ammenities of a big city with a small town feel.
