Wonderful Cottage in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in Venice Beach! This cottage was clean and nice, and the location can't be beat. We had a place to park our car, and bicycles to use while we were there. Our host was easy to work with, and we wish we could have stayed even longer.

Great location close to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

The place was small but had everything we needed. The bed was extemwly comfortable and there were plenty of clean linens. Perfect for active single or couple. Location was awesome and had parking which was key for us. I would definitely stay here again while visiting the LA area.

Hidden Gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best vacation rentals I have ever stayed in!! It truly lives up to its petite name because it is very cozy inside! Byrnadette and her assistant are so helpful and provide very detailed instructions on how to access the property. This location is central to everywhere in venice. I'm not sure what the other people who reviewed this rental were talking about because it looks exactly like the pictures, and super clean? Everything about my stay was perfect and I will absolutely be coming back soon. Im definitely going to share this hidden treasure with all of my friends.

Misleading photos

  • 1 of 5

My partner and I stayed here for our first visit to Los Angeles. This area of Venice beach is not very clean and didn't feel very safe. In the 5 nights we stayed at this property there police in the back alley 2 nights(that we saw). The first for a domestic dispute(right next to the suite), second a vehicle was hit which police were taking a statement for.

Our first night we walked to Santa Monica Pier at 6pm. There were ALOT of homeless people and police circling the streets and beaches as soon as the sun went down!! When heading the opposite direction from the suite the area is better taken care of, and during the day it does feel safer as more people are around.

As these things are not in control of the suite owner they are fully a personal preference to what type of trip you desire. If you spend more time away from this area you may be quite happy.

However the pictures of the area the property manager has chosen do not display what the current atmosphere of this area is like.

The suite itself is quite outdated, the owner is going for a shabby chic look as the property is quite old this is understandable. However it is very apparent that there have not been ANY recent updates to furniture or furnishings. The bed is extremely uncomfortable(hard). I truly appreciate a good sleep when on holidays!! The bedding is old and in questionable cleanliness. The shower is very old located in a tub that is using rags under its feet to stable it (not so stable!). There were hairs and dirt all over the sink around the faucet upon our arrival. Check out is 11am and Check in 4pm (this is ample time to have the suite properly cleaned no matter what state it was left in.)

The kitchen is what you see in the picture other than it seems most of the dishes have been put away dirty which is a complete turn off to using anything and defeats the purpose of having a kitchen!!

The garage was a nice convenience as parking in the area is stressful. Unless you have a large vehicle because it wont fit in this garage!!

I only contacted the owner by telephone upon arrival as instructed, which seemed unwanted!!

I would not recommend this property to anyone and would definitely not return. I do think it has potential to be a lot better with some furniture updates, it definitely needs a really good cleaning!!

The unfortunate part is the area is un-kept and sketchy to say the least.

Owner's Response: First off, I was unaware that this guest had such an unpleasant time. I was never contacted with any questions or concerns. It is not my fault that this guest did not do their research on the area they were going to be spending their holiday on. Venice Beach is a funky area and is known world wide for this unique quality. I was never aware of either incident stated. These are things that can happen anywhere in the world, I as a owner cannot do anything about it. The furnishings in this unit are antique furnishings that have quite a bit of charm. I take it this guest was looking for modern furnishings? I have never once got a complaint about the comfort of the bed provided. When bedding becomes worn out or damaged it is rotated out and new bedding is purchased. I can ASSURE that the bedding and the unit was cleaned before their stay. The shower is a tub shower combo and the tub is an antique porcelain claw foot tub. The garage space is narrow but we do not get many guest who come in large vehicles because it is hard to navigate anywhere in LA with a large vehicle. Her contacting me was not ever unwanted. I encourage my guest to reach out to me if they have any questions or trouble. I even provide each guest with not only my contact information but with my assistants contact information as well. We are both always available. I cannot do anything about the placement of my property. I personally lived at this property as a single mother raising my daughter from birth until she was about 8. I’ve never had an issue with safety. I just feel that this guest really didn't research her vacation destination and she would've been better off if she would've done so.

Property is set up as in the photos and in a prime location. Only thing is house is very dusty and does not look like a serious thorough cleaning has been done. Curtains and fabric drape on curtains was full of dust. They have not been properly laundered in a while. Bathroom shower head did not work and looked like it had been that way for a while. Updated utensils should be purchased. Old worn cutting boards and plastic grade Kitchen essentials was not a good look. I should say these were some of my peeves. The property assistant Kayley was great. Never saw owner. If you take my advice and monitor the property a little better I feel this property could be a true gem. Bed was super comfy AND clean. So kudos for that for sure.

The flag on my map is incorrect. It is on the street behind, 20th place.

About 5 houses away from the beach.
