Situated only blocks from world famous Abbott Kinney Boulevard and the Rose Avenue ‘Whole Foods’ this completely redone, modern and tastefully decorated studio cottage places you in the heart of a new, reborn Venice Beach. With easy access to wonderful restaurants, great stores, galleries, and the Venice Boardwalk and the beach you have the best of all worlds right at your doorstep!
A five minute bike ride from the beach (two beach cruisers available), a fifteen minute drive up the coast from LAX, and a short drive to Santa Monica, West Hollywood, downtown Los Angeles, Malibu, or Hollywood, this guesthouse is the perfect location for work, a weekend adventure or an extended stay.
My boyfriend and I travelled to Venice for Memorial Day weekend and stayed in this amazing cottage. It looks very much like the photos above, it's clean, super stylish, the perfect size for two, with a really nice patio. We made coffee and sat outside in the mornings, the neighborhood is lively but not obnoxious. We felt safe, super comfortable, and so happy. Kate is a lovely owner, she was accommodating and helpful. The location is amazing too, we walked everywhere! We are definitely looking forward to staying again in the future!
Best place by the beach!.All that was described in the listing is true!
Privacy is the best asset here. The owner gave us the keys and we were on our own. Walk away to Abbot Kinney and bike ride to Main street.
access to great restaurants and the beach. We highly recommend this spot.
The owner was easy to reach and very responsive.
We will back!
Thanks Dara and Peter
As soon as I saw this listing, I knew it was for me! It definitely did not disappoint. The pictures do not do the space justice. The interior design is awesome, clean and cozy. I enjoyed my coffee on the patio in the mornings, and it is very easy to get around LA from this location. Quiet an relaxing in the evenings, after a day of exploring various parts of LA. Alison is totally awesome and accommodating. Having the cruiser bikes on hand was a mega bonus. Lots of street parking available made having a rental car to get around that much easier. i can't say enough good things about this place. Will definitely come back and stay again!!
Venice Beach Place is an oasis in the mixed suburbs of Venice. See what it's like to live there. It's a small place, but for me, it covered the necessities, a kitchen, shower, and comfortable king size bed. The late afternoon sun makes the kitchen and garden such a wonderful place to hang out. It is walking distance from Whole Foods Market and a bunch of little restaurants. The garden is beautiful. I really enjoyed my stay.
My wife and I visited LA for a 4-day mini vacation and this place was perfect. The price is right and the location is great - walking distance (within 1 mile) from Whole Foods, lots of great dining options, and the beach.
The cottage/studio is clean and well designed. It is small, but perfect for a vacationing couple. The kitchen area is well thought out to make use of the limited space, although a bit under equipped. A few more pots/pans and some decent knives (Forschner Victorinox knives are a great quality/value) would be a great improvement. The wireless internet is nice, but the signal seemed to come and go.
Alison (the owner) was super friendly and let us know that she was only a phone call away for any questions/issues. We didn't have cause to call, but it's good to have such an accommodating rental owner. She also made some great recommendations for dining and sight seeing.
#1) Two cruiser bikes - perfect for getting around the neighborhood and people watching. The best part of our trip was riding the bikes up and down the beach and soaking in the quintessential SoCal ambiance.
#2) Very pleasant, private outdoor patio with table and BBQ grill - we didn't use the grill, but nice to know it's there. Great place for a peaceful morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine.
#3) Music options! A record player with a neat selection of records was very cool. Also there is an iPod/iPhone dock which also doubles as an alarm clock to hook up your own music too.
#4) King size bed. Rare to find a rental with a bed this large.
I would absolutely stay here again if I visit LA again, and I would highly recommend this place.
We really enjoyed our 5 night stay at the cottage in Venice Beach. It's super close to everything. The description is accurate only we thought it looked even better in person than in the pics. The use of the beach cruisers was great. The king bed is very comfortable and the cottage is equipped with all you will need. Perfect for a couple who want to be close to the beach, restaurants, shopping and galleries. It's in an ideal location to allow you to feel safe and be able to just relax. Alison is a great host and had some awesome tips for where to go and what to see but allows your stay to be very private. We will definitely stay here next time we come to Los Angeles. Thanks so much!
