Designed by noted architect, John Porter, with vaulted wood ceilings and plenty of skylights, it’s bright and airy, and totally relaxing… In one of the best areas in Los Angeles, California, it's no wonder renowned architect, Frank Gehry, has chosen to build his own home right down the street! Stop by the French Market Cafe for coffee & croissants, then stroll 15-20 minutes through the scenic canals to the beach. (Or bike to the beach in about 7 minutes on one of our 2 new bikes for guests.)
The house has a fully equipped kitchen that opens to a private deck, perfect for a BBQ and al fresco dining. Set in tropical gardens with mature palms, and giant birds of paradise, the deck is a tranquil setting. Indoors, you can cuddle around the cozy fireplace. Sit under the orange tree in the tropical garden and, great for a picnic or sitting by the fire pit.
In the Main House, each of the three bedrooms sleeps two; 2 queen beds and 2 twins that can made up as a king or as two singles. There is also a trundle day bed upstairs, a queen aerobed or couch available to sleep up to a total of 11 guests.

I'm an artist and I love architecture...I fell in love with Venice and I was lucky to find this great architectural home! I've decorated it with furnishings from all over the world...I invite you to stay here and enjoy it!
Jane van Tamelen purchased this house in 2007
Venice is my favorite area in Los Angeles! There is so much going on here; art, architecture, interesting people, fine dining, the beach...
This is a unique home. After looking in the Venice area for many years, I finally found the perfect house in a great location! It's tucked away on a quiet one way tree-lined residential street, yet walkable to Abbot Kinney, the canals, and the beach.
I can't say enough about the home's owner, Jane . (And her housekeeper Lorena too). Jane was always prompt with her responses to my many inquires and provided very complete and helpful information. She went above and beyond to make our stay successful and leave only positive memories . We really enjoyed our week in this home. As described. it was clean, well appointed and centrally located . Venice restaurants by the way are excellent. We loved Superba, Hals and GJelina.
I would stay here again.
Not only is the property well located and is light filled and comfortable, but Jane has thought of everything you could possible need from bikes to books, fans to heaters. Our friend, an LA chef, made us dinner one night and was astounded at how well equipped the kitchen was. And, I would guess the lovely weathered dining table has hosted many wonderful get- togethers making for lasting memories.
Everything was exactly as stated in the description and shown in the photos.
We would definitely recommend it.
This listing gave a good picture of the property. All was in very good condition when we arrived. The owner was responsive and helpful at all times. The kitchen was very well-equipped. Open living/dining/kitchen was lovely for gathering family members throughout our stay. Our rehearsal dinner was at Willie Jane, where the food was excellent. Also enjoyed dinner at Feed and brunch at the French Market?(I forget the name!) just down the street, which has great food and nice patio seating. I appreciated the quiet neighborhood, back and front porches. There were 6 of us staying in the house, and all were very happy with the accommodations.There was enough space for quiet naps when that was necessary! Recommended!
A perfect house in a perfect location. Close to Venice Boardwalk, Abbott Kinney and Marina del Rey.
Our family of 6 were perfecty comfortable here. And the house invited us to stay a little longer evrery morning. Love this place, very recommended!!
The house was charming and very clean. I was staying with my parents and brother who were visiting Los Angeles for a family wedding from overseas. Being walking distance from Abbot Kinney was very convenient, which has the great Intelligentsia coffee not to mention lots of good food and fun shops to browse. 10 min tops to the airport was a big perk. Venice beach was a long walk and not worth it, a really cheesy and trashy part of the beach. Santa Monica is better and Malibu is breathtaking. Fortunately Santa Monica was only a 5 minute drive and we really enjoyed eating at The Lobster by Santa Monica pier. I live in Echo Park and because of the distance I probably would stay in Malibu to be by a better part of the beach but I would be happy to recommend to a friend or family member.
I stayed at this wonderful home for three nights in July with a group of friends.
The home is beautiful, comfortable, and well-appointed. It gets a lot of natural light and, with the doors open, usually has a nice breeze to regulate the temperature. It had all the amenities we needed for our stay, and everything worked as expected.
This house is easily accessible by foot to the happening stretch of Abbott Kinney, the canals, the beach, and the area where Washington runs into the beach. All are a pleasant 10-20 minute walk, or a short drive/taxi of about a mile.
Lastly, Jane is a fantastic owner who is responsive, accommodating and understanding.
I hope to stay here again someday!
