Venice Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description
A safe and comfortable vacation setting.
The compound itself is made up of seven units, four of them 40’s cottages and two of those are now offered as vacation rentals. The owners, Allan, a Canadian film-maker and Chiyoko, a Japanese writer live on the site and have created a way of living they are happy to share.
Each unit overlooks a small private sitting garden and larger common gardens are nearby. Various tables and fire pits invite intimate or expansive al fresco dining. A Balinese daybed is for chilling or outdoor sleeping.
The compound was recently on the famous Venice House & Garden Tour and the local newspaper called it ‘most enticing’. Various areas were also used as locations for several films.
$3000/month, $840/week. $130/night (minimum 5 days) 50% payable upon booking, 50% upon arrival, $60 one time cleaning fee. $40/night per extra adult (over 18) sleeping on the sofa bed.
Fully furnished for elegant living, the kitchen is fully equipped with an espresso machine, filtered water, etc. A queen sized bed, linens and towels are provided, free do-it-yourself laundry, free internet and cable, free loan of bikes, free fully enclosed parking for one car, vaulted ceiling, hardwood floor and DVD and book library. Friendly and arty neighbors. Friendly animals are welcomed and can safely run free in the compound
The property is in the center of Venice’s semi-secret Oakwood area which has the highest number of artists per capita outside of NYC's Soho area. It is a neighborhood where locals have pride of place and greet each other as they walk, skate and bike around.
What else? Venice Love is a certain relaxed funkiness, it’s ten kinds of fruit trees, nine chimes, six kinds of bamboo, six fountains, two portable Weber BBQs and a little white hen who lays tasty eggs. It’s pretty authentically Venice Beach so it may not be for everybody but perfect for the right person.

Why Allan Moyle or Chiyoko Tanaka chose Venice Beach
Venice Beach has the best air in LA since it is within the coastal fog cover. It never gets unbearably hot even in summer. It also has a real sense of neighborhood. It has attracted creative people from all over the world as evidenced by the number of galleries and the popular 'art-crawl' every month.
What makes this cottage unique
The compound is securely fenced in so residents feel they have entered another world when they come home. The 2010 Venice Garden Tour called it 'a little piece of paradise'.
