We had a GREAT time staying in your house. Thank you. We went to the beach every day and ate somewhere different every night and never got in the car once. Your furniture is beautiful and you have a beautiful home. Thanks

Whole house is perfect

  • 5 of 5
We rented both floors of the house - one for my friend and her family, one floor for my family. It was a perfect situation - it was nice to have our separate spaces, but be able to have meals together in the backyard. Kevin is very welcoming and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

This really is an oasis...

  • 5 of 5
This was an amazing proper. Very comfortable and spacious. We were close to the beach and rode bikes everywhere we wanted. The kitchen is well equipped and clean. The master bedroom is large with very comfortable king side sized bed and beautiful sitting area. All hardwood floors and lots of windows looking our over the canopy of trees.
The Victorian bathroom was spacious and gorgeous, perfect for a nice long soak.
The owner was very gratuitous, answering the few questions we had. I would highly recommend this property.

My experience with this condo was frustrating. I thought the owners or a property manager would be around but they weren't (the owners were in Hawaii) and every time something went wrong they sent a "friend" or, when the heat would not turn on, a contractor. This was probably the worst experience I've ever had renting a condo. The kitchen is not really set up for cooking dinner. I had to buy a sharp knife for prepping veggies and a steamer rack, there was only one light (in the ceiling) and no dishwasher. I did not find it "sunny" but rather dark. The neighborhood did not feel safe. The owner did not know the police phone number to call about the all-night party across the street. I had problems getting in and out of the bathtub because there was no grab bar to hold on to. There was no list of TV channels. The entire patio was covered with a thin layer of grey dust, which the owner could not identify, likely the roof tiles disintegrating. If you have Verizon cell service you will not be able to call out as the reception is very bad.

Owner's Response: I am new to negative reviews as we have never received anything less than a 5 star review. I will begin with an apology. Yes, we were on a holiday during her stay. I’m sorry I couldn’t greet Jessica upon her arrival. However, we arranged in advance to have someone there when she arrived to bring her luggage upstairs. When she was dismayed there was no bottled water in the apartment, we asked our assistant to buy (at our expense) some bottled water for her. When she told us she would need help to get her bags down at the end of her stay, we arranged for that as well. Because we could tell she was expecting a more hotel-like experience, we offered to help her find a suitable hotel and fully refund her money which she declined.
We sent the appropriate people to the house (usually within an hour) whenever she had a problem, such as replacing a burned out light bulb, where the placemats were, how to use the remote control and how to use the heater,
We endeavor to make our guests as comfortable as possible and we are always available if there are any questions or problems. (even if we happen to be away at the time). We hope no future guests have as hard a time as Jessica did.
We sincerely hope that in the future, Jessica finds somewhere more suited to her needs. We also hope that any of our future guests feel free to ask any questions regarding the apartment and the services we provide before booking the house. And again, please read our other reviews.
Thank you,
Kevin Hughes

Great for sightseeing or lazy days...

  • 5 of 5
My 28 yr old daughter and I spent a lovely week at Venice beach in this homey and comfortable upstairs unit.
The owners were welcoming (though we never met them) and well organized, sending us detailed instructions via email. The listing was well described, and the location is perfect for sight seeing in LA. I would suggest renting a car if you want to get around, even to the grocery store (nice proximity to WHOLE FOODS). We had a blast in LA markets, museums, Disneyland and other attractions.
Lots to do and lovely to come home to the serenity of this gracious environment.

Lovely sunny house, amazing location!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in the upstairs unit of this house. The house has gorgeous woodwork throughout, tons of windows and is very clean. It was so nice to walk out of the house onto a pedestrian street and be at the Venice Beach boardwalk in seconds. We probably walked down to the beach 10 times everyday because it was practically in our backyard.

Owner is very pleasant and accommodating!

Family Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time with our family the home was very spacious and accommodated lots of visitors. Our grandchildren had lots of activities to engage in, such as bike riding (bikes come with the house) on Venice Beach and board games in the home. The location was excellent and just a very short walk to the beach and the stores, cafes, and street venders on Venice Beach. The home was very well maintained and comfortable. There was plenty of bedding and space for belongings. The outside patio was wonderful and a comfortable place to read, work, or eat and socialize, and contained a beautiful garden. The owner was very accessible for questions and the was adequate parking provided especially in this area where parking is very difficult. We would definitely recommend this rental to our friends and family, and would love to stay there again.
