We are your hosts. Sandy Toshiyuki and the husband Frank Soracco. Frank has lived in Venice since 1969 and I have lived here since we married in 1979. We worked at a restaurant we owned in Marina del Rey for many years. We gave up day to day management recently but we still keep our hand in a bit. However we can still make a great Martini. Our Vacation rental is a Father in Law unit, in our house, where my dad lived for 8 years until he died in 2004. After he died Frank remodeled the unit as a guest room for friends an relatives. When so few came to visit and Frank couldn't stand having an idle asset so when friends told him about VRBO, he joined up. Having HOTEL 508 next door has been a great joy for us as we have met many wonderful people from all over the world and we look forward to meeting many more.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 1973
When I first moved to Southern California in 1969 to open a restaurant with my bother Peter I rented an apartment in the Venice Canals. Two years later when the landlord raise my rent to what I thought was an amount that might cover a mortgage payment I went house hunting. Venice was an almost a slum back in those days and prices were cheep. Venice is now one of the hippest neighbor hoods in LA.
We live here all the time and never go on vacation for a change of climate only for a change of scenery.

Frank & Sandy,
Thank you sooo very much for HOTEL 508. Our stay here has been fantastic. There is everything you need & feels like home. Visiting the beach multiple times a day and eating great pizza @ ABBOTT PIZZA will forever be a favorite memory. All you local info was helpful. We were even visited by a lovely squirrel , we named "
"SQUIRT". He is very friendly and loves his morning cracker. The Ice Cream, Tomatoes, wine $ Olive Garden are all new. We came from BC, Canada to celebrate our 20yr Anniversary. We really don't want to go home. :(
TILL NEXT TIME HOTEL 508
Much Luv, Mike & Lisa
It was everything advertised and more. I have already recommended to friends coming to LA area. Frank was very gracious and helpful.
Parking was easy. Property was clean. Hope to make it back again.
Frank was great to work with, and he and his wife were friendly and accommodating. The rental is as pictured, and the bed was surprisingly comfy (I have back problems). It's ~10 min walk to the beach down Windward Ave and only a block or so from Abbott Kinney. I used Lyft, but I noticed that street parking was not bad during weekdays. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. I wanted to come back in October but they book fast! And for good reason. Looking forward to my next visit.
Stayed 5 nights here and it was the perfect location walking to the beach, canals and Abbott Kinney with plenty of shops and restaurants. We used Aloha Brothers surf School for lessons and they met us right near the house. Frank was right next door if we needed anything. We will definitely be back and stay right here. Thanks Frank!
Easy walking distance to beach,canals, shopping,dining. And yet you still have a quiet ,shaded street with easy parking. This was our second visit and loved it just as much as the first. If you are with car, Santa Monica, Malibu, and the pacific coast highway are close by and offer incredible views. Frank and sandy are very welcoming ,helpful,and responsive(frank even went out and got a nightlight upon suggestion).all comforts of home,bed very comfortable. Definitely hope to come back!
I booked hotel 508 6 weeks prior to arrival. I spoke to the owner, Frank, who said that I did not need to give a deposit, because he did not trust the VRBO site since he thought they could get hacked into. He assured me that the dates I picked were free and even sent a confirmation e-mail.
One week before our arrival I decided to contact the owner since I had not heard from him. He wrote back that he had somehow double booked and someone else was staying there so we had no place to stay!! I should have insisted on putting down a deposit.
My wife and i needed a few days in the sun but did not want the hassle of car hire so short taxi ride from LAX and plenty of places to walk to were our main aim. This rental fitted our needs perfectly, it was just like home only smaller of course. Frank and Sandy's hospitality was great and we had everything we needed in the suite for our few days in the sun. We walked many miles up and down the beach and found many places to eat and drink and never once felt we needed a car. The location was nice and quiet and the bed was so comfy after a days walking we wanted to take it home with us.
Studio is a short walk to the heart of Venice Beach and an even shorter walk the the heart of Abbott Kinney Blvd. There are many good restaurants near by and a couple of very good ones as well as a hot bar scene. Abbott Kinney is a wonderful street to walk while looking at the people and shops. There are very interesting shops offering everything from home furnishings to hip clothes for both men and women. A little longer walk gets you to Santa Monica or Marina del Rey. The Venice Canals with many outstanding contemporary homes is close by.
