Irene Romero purchased this house in 2012
We were ecstatic to find this property, our first venture together!
Venice walk streets are absolutely super. They are not on the oceanfront, but perpendicular to it- so it is away from the noisy boardwalk crowd (and therefore private) yet it is right at the beach! The house is probably in the best walk street in Venice. It is 3 houses from the sand.
We just Love Venice-- it is eclectic, unpretentious and simply electric. It is the epitome of California cool. And it is getting cooler by the day, with new bars, restaurants and shops setting up in the neighborhood. You can walk or bike to everywhere!
The beach house is fabulous. We had a blast refurbishing it over the past 6 months, and thrilled about how we have collaborated to come up with something we all love.
Our favorite part of the house is the Roof Deck- we imagined our guests soaking up the sun here, or entertaining under the stars in perfect LA weather. You will have a spectacular time here! The house comes with an elevator all the way to the roof, all the better to ferry up food & drinks from the kitchen.
We also love the living room skylight- LA always has such a gorgeous blue skies! If you are like us, you will enjoy just sinking into the beach house sofas, music in the background, nice California wine on hand..and chat the day away. Perfect!
We picked out a large dining table - we love good food and entertaining, and we always travel with our whole brood in tow! We hope you enjoy many wonderful meals with friends and family around this lovely table!
This "hip retreat" is barefoot steps away from the sand and sun and surf. It is clean and well maintained. The kitchen appliances and utensils are abundant. The owners are generous spirited and helpful. The architectural home is light filled and perfect for large group gatherings. We enjoyed the full moon from the rooftop and the quiet of the location. The elevator made accessing the 4th floor rooftop user friendly. Especially good for families.
Terrific villa, very well equipped (furnitures, kitchen, Tv, sound system, PS3...) very comfortable, modern and cozy, full of light with large windows (+big sky window). Great location 50 yards away from the beach and boardwalk in a quiet and chic part of Venice. Perfect for our family (2 adults and 2 teenagers), bike ride every day (Santa Monica, Marina del Rey...), drinks on the roof top where you have a great view on the ocean and LA, very close to busy Abbot Kinney. this house is a must in this area of LA !
We spent a week at New Years at the "Venice Retreat" and enjoyed everything about the house and the hospitality extended by the owners and their reps.
We hope to return!
After deciding on a Venice Beach holiday we searched high and low for the perfect accommodations. Three adults and 2 kids (ages 9 & 10) plus close family a short distance posed unique challenges. After seeing the property on VRBO I reached out to Irene to further discuss the possibilities. The house was the perfect size in the most perfect location! Safe and secure with a glorious kitchen & great room. We loved it! We enjoyed a wonderful family dinner on Christmas Eve and spend all day walking on the beach Christmas Day. There were times when we had to literally push the kids out the door - they were so comfy on the sofa. The house was tastefully decorated. Plenty of dishes, glassware and appropriate cooking utensils. There is a Whole Foods not too far away but you would need a car to get there. Otherwise, we found some smaller local places that could serve you just as well within walking distance. The house was spotlessly clean with big plush towels and crisp sheets. There is also a washer and dryer so you can pack light. We did the typical touristy things since this was the kids first trip to CA but you can easily spend all your days close to the house. There is also an elevator so this is a great house for older people. There are a lot of stairs so not sure it is the best option for families with toddlers but I am sure with some baby safe gates it would be fine. We spend most of our time on the 2nd floor in the great room/kitchen. We loved Abbot Kinney Road and walking around the Venice Canals. And the most perfect Sunsets every night! We hope to be back next year!!
We had a wonderful week at this awesome house! We were in LA for our son's wedding in Pacific Palisades - many activities in Santa Monica...Venice was a perfect spot to congregate...beautiful beach...steps away...really the best pedestrian walkway in Venice! Lots of local color and interest...And the house was fabulous! Six people stayed at the house...very comfortable...Everthing was perfect...the rooftop deck was the absolute best! We hope to stay again when we return to LA...Irene was very helpful and accomodating...We spent many months searching for the "perfect" rental...this was certainly it!! Kathy&Peter Dane
