Mar Vista is a Westside Los Angeles neighborhood bounded by Venice to the west and Culver City to the east and south. This thriving neighborhood offers its residents easy access to both the city and the beach, and many of its properties enjoy ocean views. Housing options include many well-preserved mid-century modern homes designed by Gregory Ain. The appropriately-named Grand View Boulevard features many large properties built between the 1920s and ‘40s, and this hilltop stretch offers some of Mar Vista’s best views. Recent years have seen many of Mar Vista’s classic properties replaced with spacious contemporary homes, and the neighborhood offers a wide selection of housing choices.
Mar Vista is easy to navigate on foot or by bicycle. Like Mar Vista’s real estate, local restaurants are an enticing mix of long-time local favorites and trendy new additions. The Mar Vista has quickly become a signature restaurant of the neighborhood, winning a loyal customer base with its high-quality seasonal cooking, generous happy hour specials, and live music on the weekend. For quick lunch bites, head across the street to sister spin-off The MV Grab & Go. International dining highlights include Taiwanese soul food at Little Fatty, French-style brunch and lunch patio dining at Atmosphere Mar Vista, and Japanese grocery store and casual ramen spot Mitsuwa Marketplace. Mar Vista also has a variety of boutique shops and specialty stores. Pick up unique home décor items at The Hängar and Tortoise General Store, fashionable clothing at Inland and Vintage on Venice, or hard-to-find vinyl at Timewarp Records.
Mar Vista Hill provides captivating views over the ocean, city, and mountains. Ocean View Community Farms offers residents the chance to grow their own produce from this striking vantage point. If you’d prefer to purchase your farm-fresh produce, head to the Farmers’ Market held on Venice Boulevard each Sunday. Mar Vista has a vibrant local arts scene that comes to the forefront during the quarterly Mar Vista Art & Music Walk.
