About Gerald McKenna

Long time Venice resident now retired and living in Palm Springs.

I built this building in 1988 and remodeled it in 2007.

Gerald McKenna purchased this apartment in 1988

Why Gerald McKenna chose Venice Beach

Steps to the beach with cool breezes yet close to all the Los Angeles activities.

What makes this apartment unique

There are very few hotels in Venice and none are as close to the beach as this apartment. The apartment solves the car parking issue that is a problem at so many other beach rentals.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Gerald,

I just wanted to thank you for renting us your lovely Venice Beach condo last week. We couldn't have asked for a better location so close to the beach and great restaurants on Washington Blvd. We were able to have my youngest daughter (the one who lives in Culver City), and her boyfriend come over to enjoy a BBQ with us on the patio - something we couldn't have done in a hotel room! I will definitely recommend your place to others and look forward to staying there again.

Great Venice Beach rental!

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I rented this wonderful apartment for (5) nights the first week of October. Not only was it clean and well appointed, but it was just two minutes to the beach. It was great to have a garage as well as a walled courtyard off our living room and bedroom. This was a perfect home base and every evening was wonderfully cool with a breeze from the ocean. Having a washer and dryer is key as you do not have to pack as many clothes, there was even an iron and ironing board, really everything you could possibly want. The owner was readily available to answer any questions and was always very nice and polite. We cannot wait to come back to continue our exploration of the LA area.

Couple with a Teen

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed the property. Location was perfect! Just down a very short lane to Venice Beach and also walking to many many bars and restaurants. The unit is compact but has everything you need. Patio is huge and a great place for meals and relaxing. Enjoyed an easy ride on beach to Santa Monica on 2 bikes from garage and grilled out with friends staying in area. We had to rent one bike and rental place kindly filled our tires on Gerald's bikes. Owner contacted us before trip and even checked in with us upon arrival to be sure we were all set! Great rental and seemed well priced compared to in vicinity.

First night in U.S. and feeling like being at home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and me rented this apartment to have a recreative start in our holiday trip around the southwest. It was our first stay in U.S. and after the long journey from Germany we felt like being at home in this apartment. All was prepared very well and we liked to come in with a rental car straight from the airport into the garage without any difficulties.
We really enjoyed our time in this place so near to the sea and central to see the city. I'll never forget my first morning I went for a run at Venice beach in the sunrise. Thank you very much for these wonderful days.

20th Anniversary Venice Experience

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had gotten engaged in S. California many moons ago and decided it might be fun to head back out to Cali for our 20th. The apartment was spectacular and exceeded our expectations in every way. Clean, convenient, cozy, and a great launch pad for our vacation. All the luxuries of home including DirecTV and free wifi were much appreciated and having garage access was a plus because finding parking spots in this busy area would have been a challenge. Such a great experience that my wife is already wanting us to return for another getaway!

What a holiday!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and youngest son and I were very comfortable here! Gerald provided us with all our needs. The apartment was clean and well maintained, and the location is fantastic - close to everything, but quiet. We were able to have my other son and his family over for a meal, and while we all ate from our laps, we were able to serve and seat our 6 guests. Having the Marvin Braude bike trail right outside was also a major plus - I personally logged over 200 miles on it. The garage, though, is quite narrow, so I don't recommend folks renting as large a vehicle (Buick Lucerne - the size of a large Cadillac) as we did - a bit scary at first.

All in all a great value, and we'll certainly see if it's available next time we come out to visit our son in Venice. Thanks for a great experience!

Convenient and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
A great little place, just feet from the beach. Very convenient. The place was clean and had everything we needed, including tea bags, peanut butter etc! The owner was there when we checked in and was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend the property, and hope to return soon.

This apartment has everything you need for a relaxing beach vacation. You will be on a quiet pedestrian street in a great part of Venice, yet in just a few minutes you can walk to Muscle Beach and see all the bohemian glory of Venice Beach. Walk two minutes inland and enjoy the serenity of the Venice Canals. Free parking for two standard cars - a rare commodity in this area! When you are relaxed out, a 30 minute drive will take you to Hollywood and all of the hottest clubs in the country. A farmers market is held every Saturday morning nearby, great for spotting celebrity Venice residents and getting great food.

Other Activities: boating, biking, racquetball, basketball, volleyball, weightlifting, shopping
