Guestbook comments from the owner
"Like a piece of heaven on earth. From the expansive front yard and garden to the warm cozy interior. its

peaceful, quiet, private and manages to stay quaint without sacrificing any of the amenities you would ever need for a quiet evening at home or hosting an intimate dinner with friends and family (or in my case a Christmas luncheon). So many wonderful memories were created here during our 10 day get away. If you're looking for a lovely yet reasonably priced place to stay, look no further... This is the place for you" -Tree

Ravi is an LA native and does computer work at UCLA. Holly is a documentary filmmaker who works on socially conscious films. Both of us are now happy to call ourselves Venetians as we put roots down in this wonderful, unique community - and Venice is a real community, which is a rarity in the world today.

Between us we speak Spanish, Portuguese, Gujarati, Bangla and some Hindi (and English of course!)

Holly purchased this house in 2009

We live across the street in a condo, which we also adore. So when this property went on the market, we realized we could start building our dream to one day live in the house with the beautiful huge yard and plant an organic garden and orchard. When the time is right, we plan to move across the street, but for now we love letting others share in this slice of paradise. We also love meeting our visitors and the global experience that they bring.

By being across the street, it is easy for us to stop by in case guests need anything.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Great place to stay. The house has everything you need and is very convenient with a nice terrace to bbq and have breakfast in the morning. With restaurants just around the corner, we can go out for lunch and diner. We had a great time in Venice.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We spent 2 nights here and could not have been more pleased. Not only is the bungalow appealing in its decor, it is well stocked and efficiently appointed, making it a comfortable spot to hang out, cook, entertain. The location is perfect for exploring and the bikes a great bonus to do so. We will definitely be back.

Sweet Little Oasis

  • 5 of 5
We loved the time our family spent in the little blue bungalow! The house is filled with character and charm, and the yard is a like a green oasis, dotted with fruit trees and humming birds. Our two young children spent hours playing in the magic of the front yard and so enjoyed the short walk to the beach. The house was equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our 6 month stay.

Clean, quiet, comfortable, huge yard, good location

  • 2 of 5
A great place to stay, as long as you're not staying in the house to be in the house. Again, on the positive, it was clean, quiet, comfortable, good location, and great internet connections.

Everything was extremely dated, furnishings and carpet all very worn. Clean, but worn. A desk drawer in my bedroom was broken up, but had been covered up by a table cloth. Kitchen cabinets had no doors, just curtains covering. Cookware, although ample, was what you might expect finding at low grade garage sale, nothing of any quality. The non-stick pans had very little non-stick left and were probably decades old and made cooking a challenge. And there was an major ant issue near the sink.

It was hot that weekend, and when I tried to open a window, the counter weight had been cut off, and it wouldn't stay open. I had to prop it open. Most all the windows had issues. Walls are painted paneling in need of paint and sealing.

The main light in my room was a switched extension cord hanging on the wall, routed to a power strip, with a paper shade over a fluorescent bulb hanging from the ceiling. The bed was just a mattress on the floor. Clean and comfortable though.

Bathroom had no outlet, so my daughter did her hair and make-up sitting on the floor of her bedroom. Bathroom has no stand up shower at all, but does have a shower curtain for a one-handed shower. It seems odd no one could put in an upright holder for the shower handle.

Hardware is missing from many of the doors and windows, no updates at all that I could see, leaving me to believe they are doing the absolute minimum to keep the place going. It would talk a lot of money to make the place nice, and got the feeling the house itself isn't going to be around long, as there was a surveyor in the yard when we arrived making lots of measurements.

It has the college group house feel, and not a good one if you're looking for a place to hang out and you're not in college. But if you're traveling with a group and all you need is a place to shower, shave, have coffee, leave in the morning, come home late, crash and repeat, or just hang out in the great yard, I'd recommend. A romantic weekend or a place for older folks, not so much.

I really want to stress I'm not trying to put the place down, just want people to know what to expect, and to keep your expectations realistic. The previous reviews don't really tell the whole story and I was pretty disappointed when I arrived.

Owner's Response: Hi Dan,
I'm so sorry you weren't completely satisfied with the house. We do try to keep everything up to date and in working order, but if I don't hear from guests that something is wrong then I don't know that it's not working. Thank you for bringing it to my attention that the pans were low on non-stick surface and that the desk drawer was broken. I didn't realize that. Usually I only have a few hours to turn the house around from the last guest, so I don't see all the details.

As for the electrical outlets, these are some things that just go along with a really old bungalow that others find charming. I tried to add as much lighting as possible that the house would allow.

You are correct that we are going to build it out soon. But I have tried to keep everything in good working order and I believe the pictures show the reality of what you are getting with the whole house, including the bathroom.

Most people have loved the bungalow and come back or stayed for a long time and love the feel of the house. I'm sorry you didn't feel the same way.
Sincerely,
Holly

We love Venice Beach!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at the Venice Beach Bungalow and we had a great time. The kitchen is well equipped, but we mostly took advantage of the gas grill and the patio set out in the yard. The beach is a few blocks away, and there are nice restaurants/bars nearby to enjoy an early dinner or just enjoy a good happy hour!

The bungalow has a huge front yard to hang out and relax with the family. The kids made s’mores, and we gathered by the fire pit during the cool evenings! We were able to bring our dog, Gromit, and he had a great time playing fetch in the yard!

Home in Venice Beach

  • 5 of 5
The house is lovely and has a welcoming charm that made us feel at home from the very first minute. We did not see much of LA, because we rather stayed in the garden, watching the humming birds or took a walk to the beach nearby. We went there with our teenage son and our daughter and all of us had a wonderful time. I hope we`ll be back soon.
