I stayed at the house for a couple of months and had a wonderful stay. The house is beautifully furnished and incredibly private. The entrance is off a walk street, 2 minutes walk from Abbott Kinney, and the outside garden area is great for morning and afternoon sun. I like to cook and the kitchen more than caters for that, with everything one needs. The hosts are a lovely couple and communication was seamless and easy. I thoroughly recommend staying here if you're looking for the ultimate in Venice living.
My husband and I and our two almost grown daughters stayed in this beautiful home for a month this winter. We loved our stay here! The house is beautifully appointed, has a wonderful inside/ outside feeling to it and is designed in such a way that there were separate spaces for everyone.Easy hop to the many great restaurants on Abbot Kinney and good walk or bike to the beach. We would definitely stay here again!
My wife and our toddler daughter rented Gar and Lisa's house for almost 9 months over 2012/13. It's a fantastic place. Build -- by Gar -- and decorated -- by them both -- with style and passion. I can't recommend it highly enough. Gets wonderful light, manages to be both comfortable and elegant, and the kitchen is stocked with every possible item one could ever need to cook/serve anything. It's located on a perfect little Venice alley, walking distance to nearly everything. We loved it and will always think of our time there with the utmost fondness. Can't do any better in Venice.
My wife and I had a great relaxing time. Never left the house except for runs to the beach and shopping for meals. The house is beautifully decorated and designed for a few people to relax in this hideway house. Close of to the action on AK if you want. Made meals both in the kitchen and outside where we hung out alot. Will definitely come back. Scott - NYC
What a wonderful two weeks we just spent at this exquisitely and tastefully remodeled cottage turned architectural delight in Venice, California. The location is terrific as the home is just a short 1-2 block stroll from Abbot Kinney and all its fabulous shops and restaurants. Ample natural light flows from room to room and when the weather is good, and let's face it, when isn't it, it's a treat to open up all the doors and feel like you're living outdoors! The home is well equipped with all your needs for cooking or grilling. The owner, Garfield is very flexible and accommodating and is the mastermind behind the home's architectural reinvention. While there aren't "toys" or kid activities in the home, it certainly is kid-friendly and my three-year old was never feeling she was missing anything. It's quiet and serene and safe. We met one of the charming neighbors and even if you're a guest for just a few days, it's easy to feel you're at home.
We had a terrific time there, I would love to go back and spend 6 months there! We loved the layout of the house, very spacious, the main bathroom is terrific, lots of towels too and main bedroom has lots of wardrobe space and a very comfortable bed. We loved the decor, beautiful rugs and throws, it is a very comfortable home, very welcoming. The kitchen has every conceivable utensil anyone would need, we did a couple of barbeques which the boys loved, visited Wholefoods which was amazing, wish we had one in Ireland! The garden is beautiful too, we loved it. The location of the house is terrific, so close to Abbot McKinney, lovely shops, we had some lovely meals in restaurants there, the boys were too young for the bars but the place was buzzing! Had some lovely walks along Venice Beach promenade into Santa Monica, the shopping there was fantastic, Sandi the agent was a great help, she was there waiting to let us in, and gave us an introduction to the house and area which was invaluable. The house was spotlessly clean and the garden was well maintained. I would have no hesitation in recommending this home to anyone, we loved it and hope to return someday for a longer duration!
