I used to rent across the walk street when I was in graduate school so fell in love with the street then and came back to buy a place as soon as I could. The area has only gotten better.
DD purchased this apartment in 1990
We love the walk streets of Venice because there are no cars driving past so its quiet in a way that is impossible on a regular street.
Whole House Water Filtration System - even the plants drink well so you don't have to buy filtered water. Weekly cleaning by my cleaning person of 10 + years and laundry of sheets and towels included in the price. This duplex is immaculate. We like it that way. It has an auto locking gate so if you rent bikes you don't have to chain them. Just bring them in the gate. We like long term guests and have had people stay a year. The longer you stay the better your rate.
Booked a week with my 19 and 25 year old and we all easily could have stayed a month.
The house could not be in a better location; close to the beach, Abbott Kinney and great Yoga , if that's your thing. It's comfortable inside and out and I didn't find myself left wanting anything...it was all there. Donna was delightful, helpful and accessible.
I can't wait to return.
We spent a terrific month in Venice this past February. The location of this rental is absolutely fantastic. Close to the beach, close to lots of great restaurants and shops – we had a car but barely used it and instead walked or biked most places. There were three different farmers markets to visit every week that were in walking or biking distance!
The photos of the house are very accurate – it is charming inside and was clean & well kept up and the weekly maid service was very much appreciated. Also, having on site laundry was great for our month-long stay. We used the front patio everyday – it was almost entirely shaded and private enough to be able to work on our laptops outside – a treat coming from Minnesota. The walkstreet is quiet, making the house and yard feel like a quiet little island in the middle of lively Venice. We love to cook and the kitchen was spacious and a great place to cook, though missing some useful equipment (mixing bowls, measuring spoons) and the dishwasher didn’t work very well. The mattress in the master bedroom is not in good shape and sagged in the middle giving us both a backache – and we generally don’t have back problems. The pull-out couch in the guest bedroom was comfortable and we ended up sleeping there by the end of our stay.
The owner was lovely - very nice and extremely quick to respond when we had a question or concern, but at the same time seemed conscientious of not being intrusive at all.
Overall, would recommend this sweet beach house, but an upgraded mattress would make this place unbeatable!
This was my second time in 2 trips to LA that I've stayed here. It just keeps getting better. Now there's a daybed on the sun porch - a beautiful place to read and listen to music. This place is not only quiet, private and beautiful - its spotlessly clean and comes with weekly cleaning service from the owners long time cleaning woman who is a lovely person as well. I just feel happy when I'm there.
We had a great stay at this house for the month of July. The listing and photos accurately reflected the appearance and amenities - it actually seemed a bit nicer than the photos. It was clean and well-maintained. Nice front yard for quiet sitting.
The house was a perfect size for us - a couple with an occasional guest. I would think a family would be fine as well. There is only one bathroom, so two couples might find it a bit small for a lengthy period.
We loved the location - a beautiful, quiet pedestrian-only street close to both the ocean and the restaurants and shops on Abbott Kinney and Rose Avenue. Walking distance to many restaurants and shops (and the beach), but driving is necessary to see all the LA cultural attractions.
We would not hesitate to recommend this property!
A magical garden oasis! My husband and I stayed here for approx. 10 months and we wished we could have stayed forever (however-we needed an extra room as we now have a baby on board). The house was just charming- with every amenity you could ever need and every sweet detail (french coffee press, HBO series/movie collections and beach umbrellas) ready for your use. Not to mention, the decor is simply inspiring and you often catch yourself wondering if you live in a house or perhaps are filming a scene from a movie.
As working professionals, we both worked from home and most days worked on the lovely porch, listening to the birds chirp and taking lunch on the beach (which is about a 2 1/2 minute walk from the house).
The owner of the house is an amazing woman....always there to help. She was much more than a wonderful landlord- she was and is a wonderful friend.
WE LOVED THIS PLACE and if you ever get a chance to stay here, we HIGHLY recommend you do!
Quiet, picturesque, inspiring, unique -
- the description is absolutely matching.
We stayed in the house for vacation as a family of 4 (kids 15 + 17 years old) and loved it!!!
The place is perfect being so close to the beach, shopping and restaurants on Main St. or Abbott Kinney.
And the home itself is really something special: nicely furnished and with a huge kitchen - all in copper - equipped with everything you might need for preparing great meals.
In the gated patio you feel like being in a tropical garden - the prefect retreat from lively Venice.
And now that there is a dining table outside (different from the photos) we took all our meals in the patio
Donna - the homeowner - is a great person. We loved our conversations. She is very helpful and even when she is not in town she answers all questions by email or SMS very fast!
Thanks a lot for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We definitely will be back and can only recommend the house to everybody!!!
And next time we will bring a smaller car (our Suburban felt kind of too big for the streets in Venice and the carport)
Boogieboarding, rollerblading, cycling--one block to Venice Beach and all for rent on the boardwalk
