Overview

Venice Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Imagine staying in a French country cottage situated in a lush tropical garden only 1/2 block to wonderful Venice Beach. Our 2 bedroom/ 1 bath Breeze Cottage has been completely remodeled by a local LA interior/ production designer for film & television who has created a one-of-a-kind vacation rental. All the rooms exude the peace and tranquility of a French country resort.

You know you’re going somewhere special as you enter the bamboo fenced yard that surrounds The Breeze Cottage. You enter to find a luscious front yard with 4 person Jacuzzi, a hand crafted grass and teak hut where you can lounge away the afternoons in the shade, a large deck with two wicker club chairs where you can relax in the sun, and a bistro table for outdoor dining. There’s even an outdoor shower to wash the sand off your feet when you come home from the beach.

The main area of the Breeze Cottage is an open, fully-equipped kitchen, dining and living room that are separated from the front yard and deck by wall to wall sliding glass doors creating a seamless indoor/outdoor experience. The new custom kitchen has bead board cupboards, new stainless steel appliances and a farmhouse sink. The living area has a comfortable oversized sofa (with queen fold-out bed), 42” flat screen HDTV, Blue Ray DVD player, CD player, and cable. The dining area has seating for 6. You can add the bistro table to serve 8.

The entire unit has hardwood floors throughout w/unique furnishings from around the world. All of the closet are distressed wood doors from India full of charm and character. The furnishings are reminiscent of a cottage in the south of France.

Bedrooms: The charming master bedroom has a comfortable king size bed with gorgeous wood headboard and a flat screen HDTV with cable. The second bedroom is quaint with its antique wrought iron head board and cozy queen size bed. There is a comfortable sleeper queen-size sofa in the living room.

The Breeze Cottage has one parking space, washer/dryer, Wi-Fi, plus heating & air conditioning.

Need more room? Adjacent to the Breeze Cottage is a delightful studio apartment with its own kitchenette, bath & patio. The studio also has a flat screen HDTV. Blue Ray DVD and cable. The charming bathroom boasts a wonderful, restored claw foot tub. We can make the bed up as a king or 2 extra-long twins, your choice. Sleeps 2 very comfortably. One parking space.

An oasis tucked away in the heart of Venice Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the cottage mostly because it had a kitchen and a hot tub. We were visiting LA to see our daughter and wanted a place where she and her friends could come to hang out and eat. When we first arrived I was uncertain about the place because the parking spot is in the alley which is not the most inviting place. But once you enter the yard it is an oasis of tropical charm. We found that using the gate to the walking street was so welcoming that we only used the alley when we had to drive. The kitchen is well equipped for all kinds of cooking with a brand new grill out on the deck. Plenty of pots and pans, large refrigerator and a very good coffee pot. The grill was not working at first but one call to Byrnadette and we found the problem. She was very responsive to all our little issues and happy to help in all ways. The hot tub was well received by young and old alike.

The decor is so charming. It was white vintage chic with a light airy feel. The only thing I would have changed was the dried/dead flowers on the kitchen hutch. They were the opposite of the rest of the decor.

Beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of blankets for beds and fresh white towels in the bathroom. There is an extra bedroom in the back that can be rented for a bigger group. I looked in and it is as charming as the rest. We had a wonderful stay.

P.S. I think you should tell your guests about the wonderful farmer's market on Sunday in Venice where you can get breakfast and on Wednesday (mostly produce) in Santa Monica.

Fantastic spot in Venice Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our family of three children in the lower units for a week in December 2014 and the cottage was absolutely lovely. Byrnadette is very friendly and accommodating via phone, and her staff was on site when we arrived to help with keys, parking and answer our questions about the area. The place was very well kept, quiet and relaxing. We will be back!

Probably nice... several years ago

  • 2 of 5

We were surprised at how dirty this place was. There was hair everywhere, including in the fridge & oven (yes, the oven). When we turned it on for the first time is smoked so badly from all the sludge that we had to open the house up. The baseboards, around the toilet, etc. looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in years. There was a layer of dust on all the shelves throughout, the furniture was full of stains, & the couch pillows smelled musty. The inside was also infested with tiny ants in the bathroom and kitchen. Wireless does not work well in the living room, but works fine in the bedroom. Washer inside the main house was full of mold and unusable, but luckily we were able to use the other one on the side that was meant for the other tenant. There was no vacuum cleaner in the house and no storage space in the spare bedroom. Only one lights in the kitchen worked. Electricians came during our stay, but were not able to fix it without major construction. Shower is very high and difficult to get in and out of. The house is thin and you can hear all your neighbors. We heard conversations through the floor vents, stomping back and forth from kids running, etc. We also kept getting phone calls from a house phone that was for the neighbors (they gave out the home number?). Kitchen came stocked with utensils for the most part, but had seen better days. The outside patio may have been nice several years ago, but needed a major overhaul. The BBQ was unusable because the flame covers were completely rusted. The Spa was dirty and smelled like mildew, there were flies everywhere, gazebo was unusable (two broken chairs and a small table you can’t sit at), patio furniture was very dirty, and the stone steps were completely covered in algae from the daily watering, so much that I slipped on one and my foot was completely green. Outside parking space is difficult with a SUV, but doable if you are a good driver. There are several trash cans behind it, which makes it difficult. The trashcans are also infested with flies so we had to hurry to get in and out of the car. The owner was difficult to get a hold of (lives out of the country), so the only way was through email. I didn’t get any instructions on how to access the house until I emailed the day before. I also had to email several times to get my deposit back. The area is convenient, walking distance to the beach and shops and the supplied boogie boards and bike was nice. This is why I gave this place any stars at all.

Good location but not so lovely

  • 3 of 5

First the good--the hot tub is hot and clean, as advertised. The beds are also comfortable. The decor is cute. The kitchen is fairly well stocked. The location is very close to the beach, yet quiet. Now, the bad. The place is not very clean. When we turned the ceiling fans on, dust blew all over. The garden is kind of scruffy and not nearly as pretty as the pictures. Although we had great sunny weather, the place always seemed a bit dark, rather than nice and bright like the pictures. The second garage space is almost impossible to get into. The passage way from the back to the cottage is full of bikes and hard to get through. You cannot leave from the front at all because you cannot lock it from the outside so you have to go out the back. All of these unadvertised details made the nightly price seem pretty high. I found the owner and her manager not very responsive to questions and not very nice to deal with. For example, I had to inquire three times to get an answer about the return of my security deposit. Once they had my deposit, questions I sent by email went unanswered for days. I was not aware of the 11 am check out time, which was my fault, and when I was told we rushed back and checked out about 45 minutes late and was charged a high late check out fee. All in all probably my least pleasant VRBO experience out of many.

Relaxing Experience!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most enjoyable time at the Breeze's Cottage. Byrnadette and Virgina helped accomodate all of our needs. Reccomending restaurants and experiences daily. We needed the week to rest our bones and this Cottage did just that. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook. We ran out of Propane one evening and Virgina went above and beyond to get us propane so we can continue to grill. The hospitality was top shelf. Very close walk to the strand and to all of Venice Amenities. We will definitely stay here again if we're in the area. Thank you for letting us be guests at your cozy cottage. The Canadians!
