About Alice Burston

David and I have lived for several years in Venice. I'm a California native and David joined me from England in 2003. We both lead busy lives but have been so happy in running our new Vacation Rental business. We have met wonderful people from all over the world. We love Venice and hope you will too. You will never be bored in Venice. You can veg out or be in a whirlwind of vacation activity and you never know what movie star you might see! Venice weather is great too!

Alice Burston purchased this house in 2007

Why Alice Burston chose Venice Beach

We built our vacation rental in Venice Beach because we love it here! Venice is a unique community with lots of interesting people, artists, musicians and just friendly Californians in general. We are a community in the midst of gentrification but trying to keep our ethic past intact. What's not to like, 20 min. into the heart of LA and a 10 min. walk to a beautiful beach. Weather you can't beat!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The owners are so super nice and very welcoming! I rented this place with a few friends while we were on a business trip and every time we had a visitor they couldn't believe how amazing it looked. It truly felt like a home away from home. We have all agreed to use this exact same place when we return next spring.

Location is Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 4 night stay at this gem. We were a party of 4 adults and this place was perfect. Whole foods is wonderful and so incredibly convenient! The patio was well used as we are from Minnesota and loved sitting outside each evening in February! Easy drive into the city and into Malibu for fantastic hiking. Biking up to the Santa Monica Pier was super fun - a great ride! the owners went above and beyond to make this stay memorable.

We will be back!

Great place to call home on our vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, and our two little kids stayed for almost 2 weeks.

We LOVED the place and all the space and facilities available. Its was in the perfect location (LOVED WHOLE FOODS) and a great place to rest at the end of each day!

This has been one of my favorite places to stay and we will definitely return next time we are in Venice CA.

Thanks so much for having us Alice!!

See you sometime again in the future

Cute, great location and customer service

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The house was cute and well located, a few blocks from some great restaurants and just a few more to the beach. Owners communicated well and were always quick to respond if we had questions. We had 4 adults and 2 kids and it served us well.

This Vacation Changed My Life

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at Alice and David's rental alone and for a reason! The house is 2 floors and very comfortable. Even though it feels just like home inside, there is an aura of luxury and Californian style infused as well. The location is perfect as it is less than a 2 minute walk away from one of the most beautiful Whole Foods Supermarkets I have ever seen, it’s very convenient. There is also a 99 Cent Store right next to it which is perfect for last minute essentials. There are a few restaurants on the corner and my favourite is called Casablanca which is very delicious and great prices too. No matter where you go in Venice Beach however is delectable food. Alice and David kindly provide everything you need for your stay here – pots, pans, lots of beach towels, sheets, dishware, and even a fresh bottle of wine! That’s not including the wonderful array of VHS’s and DVD’s for your enjoyment on the large television screen. Possibly my favourite part of the rental are the 2 bikes which are provided. I did not rent a car and instead took the bike almost everywhere. The beach is less than a 5 minute bike ride away (6 block-ish), and from Venice Beach you can bike ride into Santa Monica or the opposite way into Marina Del Rey. Santa Monica Pier is a dream (make sure you go underneath it) and the Venice Pier has a lot of beauty and substance to it – definitely must see’s. Having the bike’s was incredible because I was able to breathe in the wild air and feel the wind through my hair while sight-seeing, and get everywhere in a convenient, free and fast way. If you do want to go explore the town and want to drink or aren’t renting a car, I recommend downloading the UBER app which is a personal driving experience for half the price of a cab. Plus the location of the rental is so prime that the UBER often comes within 2 minutes. Hollywood/The Valley/Downtown are all about 30 mins away, Disneyland is about an hour away but the drive is so scenic and gorgeous! Definitely worth a trip.

Having travelled here alone it was very important for me to feel safe and secure and the people in Venice Beach kind and welcoming – it’s easy to make friends here. I would definitely recommend staying here if you’re looking for an authentic, comfortable and affordable Californian Vacation. I want to thank you Alice and David for all of your incredible customer service, timely replies and absolute hospitality. You are the best hosts and I'll be seeing you again soon!

Other Activities: go to the boardwalk

Golf: There is a public 9 hole golf course about 1/2 mile away. Penmar golf course. I have heard it is a nice course. This is a LA City owned course. There are also free, lighted tennis courts within walking or biking distance. There are 3 separate locations. We play on all of them and often you can walk right on.

Ski: We don't have snow but we do have the beach!!!
