This stunning penthouse is beautifully decorated and furnished, comes complete with large and open 'great room' with gas fireplace, large gourmet kitchen, two full bathrooms, washer/dryer in the unit, extra-large master bedroom which opens up onto the large, very private roof deck/lounge area with BBQ, bar, dining table for eight, and very comfortable lounge furniture, two walk in master closets, a second medium-sized bedroom with large closet, 2 flat screen TV's, a view of the ocean from every room, and three balconies.

Casablanca Penthouse is situated in the cleanest, safest and most beautiful area of Venice, complete with sand volleyball courts, and is a two minute walk to awesome 'Washington Square,' a fun, 1 1/2 block area where you'll find shops, convenience/grocery stores, and restaurants, all of which are excellent, as well as a fun nightlife! Favorite activities include walking out to the end of the Venice Pier to watch the surfers and fishermen and enjoy the amazing views, biking along the beach bike path to the Santa Monica Pier, and walking through the Venice Canals or the Venice Walk Streets, both categorized as 'historical monuments.' Central Venice, with its street vendors and performers, as well as Muscle Beach and a new ocean-side skate park, is just a seven-minute walk to the north.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
To echo previous reviewers, great place in an excellent location. The apartment is a very short walk from the beach and along a stretch of Venice Beach that was relaxed and quiet. There were a number of restaurants and convenience stores within a short walking distance. The location was also only 15-20 minutes from LAX via Lincoln Boulevard.

The property was clean and well-maintained. The kitchen is as described, well laid out and fully stocked with necessary pots/pans/utensils. The managers were very responsive to any issues that arose, quickly addressing a minor plumbing problem and in general always available. They also provided a number of additional amenities, including beach chairs/towels and a number of bikes in the garage available to ride. They even left us a bottle of champagne for New Year's on check-in!

Two very minor points about the property description. 1) There are definitely only two bedrooms despite some parts of the property description stating three bedrooms. It looks like there used to be two bedrooms next to the outdoor deck that were converted into one extra large master suite with three beds. I would not call a living room a bedroom. 2) Although the property lists two parking spots, they are tandem parking spots in a single row and very tight. We were able to fit a Toyota Prius and a Chevy Malibu into the garage with only a few inches to spare. Don't count on fitting two standard sized cars into this space.

Overall, I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a well-maintained, comfortable apartment in a great location run by a very responsive management team.

Excellent Apartment with great location

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is light and spacious with good facilities for everyday needs as well as special ones to add a bit of luxury to a vacation. The terrace was a great place to catch a few rays and relax. At the time we were there, there was a pregnant lady below who liked her sleep so we made sure the children didn't run around on there before 8 am and after 10 pm (but we didn't use it in those hours anyway). We spoke to her briefly at the beginning of our stay to ask her to mention if we made too much noise but never heard from her again.

We found the apartment to be clean and had a cleaner come in every week, any left condiments that were useful to us e.g. salt/pepper/cooking oils we gratefully received and left ones we were not using in pantry! Great to have supplies of washing powder etc so we didn't need to buy any and think about shopping too much!

Mangers Robin and Noel, went to a lot of trouble to change the bedrooms around for us to accommodate our 3 children (from 12yrs to 6 rs) in the Master Suite and for me and my husband to have the Second bedroom. We were impressed with their attitude, their professionalism and if any problems were to occur they would always be available.

Great to be 2 minutes from the beach so we could enjoy the waves every day and felt safe to leave eldest child (when he didn't want to come to beach as he had broken wrist) in apartment; he could see us from living room. As it is away from the main, hectic area of the tourist stretch there is welcome quiet and safety.

Able to use cycles to ride to Santa Monica and the Abbot Kinney Road (fabulous coffee shops/restaurants/shops/atmosphere), which was great way of getting around.

We would definitely recommend this property for a fantastic holiday, great location and comfortable, clean and spacious apartment.

Great location however grubby!

  • 3 of 5
For those loving the eccentricity of Venice Beach, this apartment is ideally located, just a few blocks back from the action.

The owners are v helpful and accommodating and can advise on most things local to the area.

Before signing up, we were issued with a bunch of house rules which were fine eg keep the place tidy, dont have wild parties etc which all suited our desire for a nice quiet holiday. The place however has a number of issues which are worth pointing out:

(1) The place is grubby! Although we were assured it was cleaned, all the kitchen surfaces/cupboards are sticky with grease

The cupboards and worksufaces are loaded with half used oils, condiments etc which look like they have been opened for ages and again grease covered

The fridge needed an additional clean from ourselves and had again half used bottles and jars which looked really grim. Some of the stuff again was well past it's sell by date and I am not sure why anyone would leave these in a fridge? We promptly hid them in the cupboard along with the other stuff!

(2) Both bathrooms have carpet on the floor which was soggy and unless you are a contortionist, you will find it extremely difficult to manouvere yourself in and out of one of bath located showers which has a non moveable shower screen with a very small gap to come in and out of which coincidentally is just where the toilet sits. You have to enter and exit sideways one leg at a time so good lucj with this!

Again grubbiness all around here. The hairdryer was in the same drawer as a hairbrush full of hair and the showerscreens and taps needed a good scrub!

(3) Again in the front terrace, more examples of grubbiness - we moved a chair only to find old potato chips and cigarette butts - so clearly cleaning had been haphazard!

(4) Finally we were told on arrival that the main terrace (which is one of the main selling points and is indeed lovely ) is above the person who is renting below's bedroom so we needed to be tread lightly. Having used this at 8 in the morning to eat breakfast and read a book (so pretty quiet activities), we were sent an email by the owner telling us to avoid using the terrace in the early morning/late evening (eg after 10.30) as we were disturbing someones sleep! Whilst we are open to criticism if we were indeed noisy, the fact is we are as quiet as mice, so this we felt wasn't really on, given that sitting out on the terrace early and indeed late is part of the experience!

Owner's Response: This guest's issues could all have been avoided by her simply following our normal procedures in our agreements, right above the signature block: if there are ANY PROBLEMS of ANY KIND, we'll take care of it immediately. First and foremost, cleanliness is something we pride ourselves in, and our guests over the years, at this property and others, mention our high standards and our cleanliness guarantees time and time again. After we couldn't reach this guest, we stopped by and they said that everything was great, with no mention of any of the so-called issues: 1) Surfaces can be moist due to the salt air and the finish used on the cabinets has a shiny look (it's not grease). At all of our units we leave condiments, oils and spices in the fridges and on the counters, all of which are, yes, partially used. Guests appreciate it, and if something is expired people just thrown the item away as opposed to hiding it in a cupboard! 2) The "non-moveable" sliding shower door in fact needed a little push to the side for one of the wheels to get back on the track. It works fine. (non-moveable? get in/out one leg at a time?). The carpet in the bathrooms is never soggy unless a guest doesn't use the bath rug when getting out of the shower. We don't provide hair brushes and could not find one, so it must have been her own. There are water spots on some of the fixtures due to the hard water. 3) The chair on the front terrace that was covering the debris extends to the ground, is very heavy and is not the type of chair that is moved around, thus it is normal, not haphazard, to sweep around it. I noticed and removed the item just after checking them in. This couple had requested that none of the surrounding neighbors be able to see them when on the roof deck terrace, so we had installed some red and white long curtains so that they could have the privacy they requested which was no small effort on our part to make sure they were comfortable. 4) We only asked that noise on the roof deck be kept to a minimum during quiet hours (10 pm to 8 am). Just having arrived from London, on the first morning they had gone out there quite early and not realized how noisy their movements were. We had a family with three young children staying there just after these guests, and not one complaint from the neighbors... Have I covered everything? Whew! One thing's for sure, this guest's favorite word is "grubby"!!

Great place in Venice Beach!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I had a great time at this property! It is far enough away from the "craziness" of Venice Beach to allow you to relax and it is only a 2 minute walk to the beach! I would highly recommend anyone to stay here. It is in a very nice area and they also provide a parking spot for your vehicle, which we all know can save much needed time and money. The owners were very polite and prompt with our needs, which allowed for a great stay!

If you are looking for a great place to stay at a great location, this is THE place! It was within walking distance of Venice Beach and boardwalk, very convenient if you also like running. It was very spacious and had everything we needed.

Wonderful place!!!

  • 5 of 5
Great place to stay in LA (south Venice Beach). You literally walk about 50 yards to the beach, which you can see, hear and smell from the unit! You are also about 150 yards from a bunch of restaurants at Washington Square (the end of Washington Blvd. at the beach). We had a great time as the unit was very spacious and had everything we needed. I slept amazing on the bed I was on; seriously the best sleep I have a had in a long time. You are maybe a mile from the grocery store and literally about 15 minutes from anywhere in LA! Robin and Noel are really cool hosts and will certainly work with you on anything. Very down to earth. They even offered to give us a nickel tour of the area (take yall up on it next time : ) ). I would certainly love to work with these people again in the future and recommend them to anyone looking for a great place to stay! Thanks again!
