This remarkably designed, eco-friendly beach house is ideally located on a charming walk street in one of Venice Beach’s most sought after neighborhoods – a pedestrian paradise between the old-world canals and spectacular Venice Beach.
This high-end vacation retreat has the best Venice has to offer… without the hustle and bustle of the crowds. It’s just steps from the sand, surf, restaurants, coffee shops and the world famous Venice Boardwalk. We invite you to make the Venice Beach House Retreat your home away from home.
I can not say enough good things about this property and the owner, Lisa. The home is gorgeous and the location is the best. You are a one second walk to the beach and very close to shops as well. We have two young children and they loved every aspect of the property and location. Venice is a super cool area with all the amenities you could want. Lisa is an absolutely fabulous host, who was so attentive and accommodating to us. I would not hesitate to rent this property again and neither should anyone else! A 12/10!!
My family and I just came from this fabulous property. We were in town for my son's graduation from LMU and we couldn't have picked a more perfect spot! We enjoyed the bikes up and down the beach, we sat on the rooftop deck and enjoyed the view of Santa Monica, downtown LA and of course the ocean. Mostly the attention to detail in this beautifully appointed home. It has everything you could possibly want or need including comfy beds, a gorgeous kitchen and an iPod filled with great music to enjoy.
Thanks Lisa for the flowers and champagne for Mothers Day! What a thoughtful touch!
We will be back!
We rented this wonderful house for a television shoot a few weeks ago. The main filming took place on the rooftop deck and in the kitchen. The house was wonderfully set up for our needs. Being that it was a cooking show, the house had a beautifully open and equip kitchen that made our prep super easy. The decor on the roof was simple and elegant which complimented our set decorating and the views of the ocean were magnificent. The owner and property manager were extremely accommodating to our needs and made everything go very smoothly. I would rent this place for a vacation getaway in a heartbeat. It is steps from the beach in a very desirable location. The place is set up really nicely for a group of people as the bedrooms are nicely separated from the main living space and ideal for spending time together or having some time alone. I highly recommend!
We went on vacation with our 2 little sons and they couldn't have had a better time. Was the perfect place- location everything to get away. I highly recommend this place. It's paradise!
If you want a perfect getaway, this is the place to be. Attention to detail is unsurpassed. Everything you could possibly need and want has been thought of. Bikes, skateboards, scooters all at our disposal. We were a family (5 adults) here to celebrate a birthday and spend time w/my adult sons who recently moved to Venice Beach. The house boasts spectacular views from the rooftop deck and every room is decorated with style and comfort in mind. We felt cozy and relaxed from the moment we entered. Lisa is a gracious and most charming host. She provided valuable insight to the area's many food and shopping options. The gourmet kitchen was a dream ... especially since we planned a birthday dinner celebration. Dining on the rooftop deck was magnificent. This property had it all. We can't wait to return!!!
We stayed at Lisa's marvelous house for 8 nights. Our party included my Bristish mother-in-law, two daughters in their mid-twenties and my wife. We were frequently joined for meals by my third daughter and her future husband who are working in LA for a year. The house is beautifully furnished, the beds are comfortable, and the kitchen was superbly equipped, so much so that we had Thanksgiving dinner for nine on the roof. The views from the roof are spectacular, and its a wonderful place to relax, read, and eat. There's also a large round table downstairs that can easily accomodate a large party. The location is perfect: quiet and just off the nicest section of Venice beach. We took long walks on the beach, rode the five bikes down to Santa Monica, and my future son-in-law used one of the surf boards. We had to go to and from LAX several times to pick up and leave people and the house is only 20 minutes away, an added bonus. I could not recommend it more highly.
The Venice Beach House Retreat is a luxurious, high-end vacation rental property located just steps from the sand in the Venice Beach neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. World famous Venice Beach, with its three miles of wide, manicured sand, has something for everyone. You can grab a towel and soak up the California sun, go for a walk at sunset, people watch around the Muscle Beach outdoor gym or play pick up basketball on the courts where White Men Can’t Jump was filmed, browse the local curios and street art on the boardwalk or have a beer at the many outdoor cafes.
The Venice Beach House Retreat is ideally located 150 yards from the sands of Venice Beach and a block from the romantic, otherworldly Venice Canals, Los Angeles’ best kept secret. Abbot Kinney Boulevard is a stone’s throw away with great shopping and dining. GQ Magazine named Abbot Kinney the “Coolest Block in America.” Take a walk down this ultra hip street for window shopping, people watching, fine-dining, and to see and be seen.
Pick up one of our surfboards and walk to the Venice Pier to join the many locals for a surf. The pier offers several breaks for all skill levels, or you can head a few blocks north to Venice Breakwater for more waves. Ride one of our beach cruisers, take the skateboard out for a spin, or just stroll down the boardwalk to enjoy everything Venice has to offer. Everything is just a stone’s throw away.
The Venice Beach House Retreat is fifteen minutes away from LAX International airport, less than a mile from the sailboats of Marina del Rey, and a bike ride away from the tourist attractions of the Santa Monica Pier.
