Venice Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio; sleeps 2

Le Petite Cottage is a quaint studio getaway. It is as nice as any hotel suite in Venice or Santa Monica for half the cost and not to mention more privacy. Just 1/2 block to the beach, this charming French country suite has a king be that can be separated into 2 extra long twin beds. The suite is decorated with delightful shabby chic furnishings. At the private entrance there is a small lovely, tranquil garden patio with a iron bench.

Le Petite Cottage has a cozy kitchenette with a two burner stove, a microwave,

and medium sized refrigerator. The suite comes complete with flat screen HDTV, a BlueRay DVD player, cable, WiFi, heating & air conditioning.

The Le Petite sleeps 2 very comfortably. There is one garage parking space that comes with the unit.

This is NO cottage

  • 1 of 5

I arrived and vacated within 15 minutes. This is a bedroom in the back basement of a railroad style home next to the garage! Entrance is on a dirty alley. There is a gate but it does not feel safe at all! No refund policy... BEWARE!

Owner's Response: i'm shocked that someone who has never been in my property nor has stayed in my property is allowed to write a review about it?? a man named jon booked my studio last month and was a very nice gentleman.. it turned out that he never intended to stay at le petite studio but had booked for a friend/client of his??? i was completely unaware that he had booked for someone other than himself..??? and didn't find out that jon never intended to stay at my property but instead booked for a client or a friend??? i never had any contact with this woman until she showed up..?? i had sent jon check in instructions and parking instructions which he thanked me for sending weeks in advance. he never indicated that he would not be staying at le petite and would be sending a woman instead?? and then... this sort of kind of nutty woman showed up instead of jon?? she said that jon had booked for her..???? i have a lovely assistant named kaylee who went to meet and greet her upon her arrival and help her settle in... this woman ( we still don't know her name???) proceeded to yell and scream at my assistant saying that venice beach was disgusting place and that she hated homeless people and hated alleyways with trash cans and that she would never stay in venice beach??? kaylee was completely baffled and asked her why she had asked jon to book her a studio in a place like venice beach that she despised so much and knew nothing about it?? she just took off saying she would write a bad review & that she hated trash in alleys? she said that she was leaving and would not even look at the property??? she never saw the le petite.. she never bothered to walk through the secured gate and look inside to see how lovely and charming le petite studio truly is?? she never bothered to park her car in the secured attached garage...etc. etc. she just got in her car and fled venice beach??? i do not know where she went or why she ever choose venice beach to take a vacation?? kaylee and i later spoke with jon and he apologized for sending this woman..?? and now she has written the worst review i have ever received in the 8 years i have hosted guests at le petite studio.. please be aware that she is writing a review about her hatred of venice beach for she never stayed at le petite studio and didn't take the time to walk inside and see how lovely it is.. i do not think she is allowed to post a review since she didn't book or stay at the property...???

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.

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.

Very cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival at the property it was very late in the night, or early morning. We were very tired and once we got inside, were very happy to see the cottage was just what we needed at that moment. The room was very cozy, and had all the right things in it to make it very homey. We jumped into the nice big bed and fell asleep. In the morning we found it to be a very short walk to the beach. It was just as promised. We had all we needed in the room waiting for us. There wasn't anything in the room we could have asked for. Excellent stay here.

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

About 5 houses away from the beach.
