Park your car and walk everywhere- ample street parking.
Adjacent Washington Blvd, Centinela and Venice Blvds have shops, restaurants & services you might need.
Japanese Specialty Supermarket ( Mitsuwa), and Large Supermarkets are within minutes walking- Gelsons, Ralphs, Pavilions. 99¢ Store a block away.
Culturally mixed, you can find any speciality restaurant or market somewhere close, esp Latin American influences.
There are a number of Farmer's Markets through the week at various locations. The Friday Afternoon Market at Alla Glencoe park features free Yoga lessons, if you feel bendy. There is also a full childrens play area and tennis courts at this park.
A park less than a block South of the home has basketball courts and tennis 1/2 court practice areas, grassy lawn and lots of space
Full bus service is nearby and you can walk ( 40 minute stroll) or bus to the beach and Venice Boardwalk- beach parking can be a pain, so you have choices. This is near the Santa Monica, Culver City and Los Angeles bus services, so you can get anywhere you want.
About 15 or 20 minutes from LAX Airport in zip code 90066
The full kitchen allows snacks or full meals as there is a full size gas range, microwave and full cooking utensils. Also coffee machine and full size refrigerator freezer. pots, pans, plates etc.
The home is small, cheery and comfortable, cable television and wifi keep you in touch with the world- selection of rainy day games in the closet with the boogie board and washer/dryer
Good quality bedding and towels.
The air conditioning unit is small for the space, but the real key here is to open up the windows and sliding door and catch the fresh air from the ocean- coastal LA gets nice fresh air
The front garden shines here, a graveled area make for easy clean up, with a low fence and screened by trees, you can feel private and but not feel confined. You can hear the city and neighborhood moving around you while you relax. Citrus trees hang over the fence. If you have bikes, room to park them.
This is a pet-friendly rental and that made it for us- we and our dog enjoyed the house ( bamboo floors, easy to sweep) and the immediate area is nice for walks into the late night
The Property Manager is onsite ( in the home behind), and is gracious, helpful and friendly- speaks English and Italian. The neighbors are also welcoming with children and dogs running around and playing after school- this is a real neighborhood, get out walking and see what it offers
