Classic Venice Beach Craftsman-style cottage with excellent location near the Venice/Santa Monica border. Just steps to Abbott Kinney in Venice (1.5 blocks), Main Street in Santa Monica (2 blocks), and the world-famous Venice Beach Boardwalk (4 short blocks). Whole Foods and Ralph's are both less than a mile away.
This is an adorable one bedroom cottage with an open living plan and all the amenities of home. Two sets of french doors provide TONS of natural lighting and outdoor living: one set opens the living room up to a beautiful wooden deck while the other leads straight from the cozy bedroom to the brick patio. There, you'll have exclusive use of the Teak Picnic Table, commercial grade BBQ Grill, 4-person Jacuzzi, wood-burning chiminea, and propane heater. Adirondacks dot the property if you're in the mood to read a good book, surf the internet on the wireless network, or just lounge around.
Living: The bedroom features a comfortable queen-size Tempurpedic mattress and pillows. A queen size hide-away sofa accommodates extra sleepers.
There is a flat screen TV with DirecTV and ALL the movie and HD channels, a DVD player that streams your netflix, and a surround sound stereo system.
We provide complimentary use of our beach towels, two portable beach chairs, and a portable cooler for use during your stay.
We have two adult beach cruisers for rent, complete with baskets and locks for cruising down the boardwalk, trips to the grocery store, or just exploring the neighborhood.
Environmentally Friendly: The property is very environmentally friendly and includes xersicaping and solar paneling.
Pets: Please contact the owner directly if you are interested in bringing your pet.
Greetings! My name is Faye.
This is not just any vacation rental, this is my home. I chose to rent it out to travelers because I, myself, travel extensively for work and, unfortunately, am not home much. When I am though, I like to be comfortable, which is why you will only find the best amenities at this Venice Beach Cottage. No rental-grade equipment here. From high grade cutlery and cookery to the TempurPedic mattress to the comfortable jacuzzi, you will live as comfortably here as you live at home. I see being home as a vacation for myself, and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
Faye purchased this bungalow in 2010
I had the fortune at staying here for three months while relocating to the area and requiring short-term housing. The property is furnished as described with full size appliances, plenty of kitchen utensils for the nights you want to eat in. In addition, the BBQ grille and the outdoor hot tub are a nice touch. Having a washer/dryer on premise was also great! In regards the location, the property could not be any more ideally situated. Park your car when you arrive and then everything in this beach community is then walking distance.
The owners were likewise incredible, she made the booking experience seamless and this experience continued right through our stay, always readily available to answer any questions we had. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this property to family and friends
Thank you for a great home for three months, the time we spent there was magical.
This was perfect for us. We were very happy to arrive to a clean, cheerful and airy cottage. Because of our past experiences elsewhere, I was relieved to see the kitchen so well-stocked with good cookware!
Everything we wanted to get to was within walking distance. The beach, Abbot-Kinney and groceries were no more than a fifteen minute walk.
Most importantly, we were able to bring our pet, who managed to endear himself to Blue (the resident Husky), which is a testament to her sweetness and patience.
Many thanks to the owner and manager for being so accommodating and easy to deal with!
I stayed here with my wife and small dog for the month of April and we could not have chosen a better place to stay. The photos are extremely accurate and the apartment was actually bigger in real life. The property was very clean and the bikes were used every single day. For us, the location was perfect. One block to Abbot Kinney and the shops and restaurants there...another two blocks to the beach. Would I recommend it..? Well I think the fact that we just booked another few nights for later this year is a clear indication that I would recommend it to family and friends alike, and have done so already.
This cottage is delightful. It's airy, bright, and clean. Everything works. The kitchen is well-equipped for those who like us enjoy cooking. The grill, hot tub, and TV are great amenities. The couch and chairs are super comfortable. Wifi works great. In short, we loved it.
The location is also great. Lots of good food in walking distance along Rose and Abbot Kinney. Very close to the beach as well. We used the bikes and road to Santa Monica pier every day. It was blissful.
The property's caretaker was attentive and helpful. The dog was a delightful presence as well. I would recommend this place to anyone... except those who insist on eating indoors at table (there is none) and/or wouldn't want to get in bed from the foot of the bed (that's the only option).
We just fell in love with this adorable cottage in Venice. So nice to have a place that feels like home when you're on vacation. The old charm mixed with all of the modern appointments and furnishings made it sooooo cozy. We enjoyed the hot tub, the BBQ, DirectTV, Pandora Music, fully equipped kitchen needs, light and bright bathroom, comfy bed & linens, plenty of storage and closet space, outdoor dining, beach chairs, bikes, a welcome dessert, spices and kitchen staples and, of course, Blue...the owner's beautiful Husky. Our dog was welcome and enjoyed playing with Blue everyday. The onsite manager is helpful, personable, and respectful of privacy. The owner was in touch before, during and after our stay for any questions and making sure we were enjoying ourselves. We love visiting the area and can't wait to return to our new little "home away from home". Thank you for sharing your place!
We had a lovely stay at your bungalow. It was very clean and inviting. We instantly felt right at home. Though small, once you open the doors leading to the wrap around deck, the place just opened up. We would definitely stay again, if you would have us. Great location, especially being so close to Abbott Kinney.
