Our home is conveniently located at the beginning of a desirable walk street (no cars).
The property offers the best of both worlds; maximum privacy but superior location that is 2 blocks from the Abbot Kinney shopping and dining district. It is also a little over a 1/2 mile to the world famous Venice Beach and Boardwalk.
Whatever you consider to be an ideal vacation is available to you in this Shangri-La by the sea. If you are a beachcomber, there is ample room to relax and frolic in the sand and surf. You will also be in the middle of the action of Venice’s famous Boardwalk. There you will find an eclectic mix of performers, vendors, sidewalk cafes and bars. You can also rent a bike or roller blades and venture down the path to the Santa Monica Pier and 3rd Street (Shopping) Promenade which is only a short distance away.
If shopping and/or dining is your thing, Abbot Kinney is likely to satisfy all of your desires. GQ Magazine has called it the “Hippest Block in America” and there you will find a multitude of shops and many highly rated dining options.

From its’ world famous boardwalk and beautiful beach to the shopper’s paradise of Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice offers a unique and vibrant mix of activities and attractions. Originally called “Venice of America,” Venice was founded in 1905 by developer Abbot Kinney as a beachfront resort town. Kinney’s initial vision of creating a cultural mecca was set aside to accommodate the public, and Venice became the “Coney Island of the Pacific,” complete with an amusement pier and a miniature steam railroad. Kinney also created a system of canals and imported gondolas and gondoliers from Venice, Italy.
Today, Venice is one of the most popular (2nd in the state to Disneyland) destinations for visitors and locals alike. From its days as home to Beat Generation poets and artists, Venice continues to be an important Los Angeles cultural center. Whether you’re looking for some fun in the sun, a unique shopping experience, or a wide variety of dining choices or an evening of art and music, Venice has it all.
While Venice's claim to fame may be its beach culture, its’ most stylish block, Abbot Kinney, has become a desired destination in its’ own right. The heart of the Abbot Kinney district is the area along Abbot Kinney Boulevard between Venice Blvd. & Main St. The area includes numerous shops, galleries and many cafes, bars and eateries. On the first Friday of each month an additional attraction are the dozens of food trucks serving gourmet food at great prices. All of the local shops remain open late into the night.
Ocean Front Walk/the “Boardwalk”
There is no denying that the main attraction is the world famous Boardwalk. All year round (especially during the summer season and on weekends) you will find street entertainment of all kinds. Street performers include singers, dancers, musicians, jugglers, acrobats, mimes, comics, magicians, prophets, fortune tellers, and untold others. You will see people with tricolor hairdos, painted faces, weird tattoos, and outlandish clothing--or lack of it. It is a virtual sidewalk circus! It is also an open air flea market with an eclectic variety of goods and services. Along the walk you will also find an assortment of retailers, including souvenir shops, bike rental outlets, arts and crafts, restaurants and snack shacks. A popular option is to sit at one of the ocean-side restaurants to do some serious people watching. There are also playgrounds, skate parks and courts for basketball, handball, and paddle tennis. Muscle Beach is an infamous outdoor weight room (made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger) where fanatic bodybuilders pump iron in a public show of strength.
The 3 mile ocean beach offers activities for the entire family. If lounging in the sand is not your bag, surf on the crashing waves, ride a bike or roller blade along the path to Santa Monica and beyond.
Venice's canals (complete with ducks) are home to some of LA's most eclectic residential architecture. See tiny bohemian cottages next to million-dollar ultra-modern houses. The canal streets are between Washington Blvd. and Venice Blvd.
I recently booked this house for my family to come out and visit. The house slept 6 comfortably. It has a well equipped state of the art kitchen. The layout feels spacious and was great for hanging with family. The location for Venice could not be more perfect. It is a nice quiet street that is a super close walk to restaurants, shopping and of course Venice Beach. My Family loved the house so much they asked about booking it out for a week over the summer. We Look forward to the next stay. Thank you
I was there at this property on business. The house was amazing. Very comfortable with an amazing kitchen. Walking distance to stores, restaurants and the beach. Wonderful neighborhood. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms spacious. I would stay there again for sure. The gardens are divine.
I visited this property with 4 girlfriends and had a great time. Within walking distance to shops and restaurants. The house is beautiful, well equipped kitchen, w/d available, outdoor firepit was a great plus.
I would highly recommend this rental, several seating areas if you need some quiet space. Owners and their representative were very easy to deal with and helpful if we had any questions.
We had a great time in California. We were there for 3 days with 3 adults plus a 5 year old. There was plenty of room for the four of us to hang out and to have our own privacy. We were greeted by a nice neighbour next door and immediately, I felt like home. The home was beautiful and very much home-like with a nicely furnished kitchen with everything you need and more to make a nice meal if you have time. I love the fact that they have a nook in the back with a huge collection of books to browse through. My 5 year old loves to read and had I known there'll be books for her age, I would have left hers at home. The home had everything you need, just like in a hotel. The washer and dryer is always a bonus over staying in a hotel.
The walk to the beach was further than expected and maybe it's because we have a 5 year old, which made the walk much longer than anticipated. I would totally recommend driving there instead. There're plenty of parking on the street closer to the beach (paid/not). We didn't enjoy Venice Beach so much and didn't seem to be appropriate for kids. However, the Santa Monica Pier was another story. It's only a short drive away from the home and had a park across the pier with a play park. These are the only things we really had time for because we spent all our days at Disneyland; a Christmas present for my daughter.
The home was central to many places. Stephan was great. He checked in with a call to make sure our stay was problem free; and it was. Thank you so much!
When we decided to come to California for the holiday's we found your house online and knew that we wanted to stay there. From the moment we checked in and Stephan, the property manager, gave me the full tour, we knew the week was going to be special. Every bit of space was utilized by our entire family and our granddaughter loved having all that room to run around the house. We entertained friends one of the days, and since we all love to exercise, bike, run, and walk there is plenty to do nearby. All of the rooms are tastefully decorated and we absolutely loved the kitchen. At the end of the week, we were amazed on how close the property was to LAX for our trip back home. It will definitely be on our list for the next time we travel out to LA again.
This is a beautiful home, nicely furnished, lots of extras including TVs in every room, and a very nice kitchen. it is very close to Abbot Kinny, and a nice walk to the beach and the canals. We loved it!
