About Gerald McKenna

Long time Venice resident now retired and living in Palm Springs.

I built this building in 1988 and remodeled it in 2007 and 2016

Gerald McKenna purchased this apartment in 1988

Why Gerald McKenna chose Los Angeles

Steps to the beach with cool breezes yet close to all the Los Angeles activities.

What makes this apartment unique

There are very few hotels in Venice and none are as close to the beach as this apartment. The apartment solves the car parking issue that is a problem at so many other beach rentals.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Gerald,

I just wanted to thank you for renting us your lovely Venice Beach condo last week. We couldn't have asked for a better location so close to the beach and great restaurants on Washington Blvd. We were able to have my youngest daughter (the one who lives in Culver City), and her boyfriend come over to enjoy a BBQ with us on the patio - something we couldn't have done in a hotel room! I will definitely recommend your place to others and look forward to staying there again.

Great Venice Beach rental!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I rented this wonderful apartment for (5) nights the first week of October. Not only was it clean and well appointed, but it was just two minutes to the beach. It was great to have a garage as well as a walled courtyard off our living room and bedroom. This was a perfect home base and every evening was wonderfully cool with a breeze from the ocean. Having a washer and dryer is key as you do not have to pack as many clothes, there was even an iron and ironing board, really everything you could possibly want. The owner was readily available to answer any questions and was always very nice and polite. We cannot wait to come back to continue our exploration of the LA area.

Excellent property located 150 paces from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in April 2017 (2 adults and one teenager). It's located at the quieter end of Venice beach and is a small yet very comfortable home. It has everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I'd highly recommend it for a couple or family with one sibling.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is in the perfect location if you want to be at the beach but not in the middle of the noise. It is about six blocks away from the start of the Venice Beach boardwalk shops (running parallel with the beach) and two short blocks down a pedestrian avenue to access the beach and bike path. Off-street parking and a fenced patio are nice features as well. Gerald was quick to respond to questions and very helpful. Pictures are accurate to the unit. Thanks!

  • 4 of 5

South Venice Beach is booming. This rental allowed walking to the beach, to excellent restaurants and the pier. On sight parking made for comfort with coming and going to family functions. Our apartment was perfect for two adults and a bit crowded with three adults. That is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5. We were able to follow provided instructions without difficulty and really appreciated our first VRBO experience.

Owner's Response: I agree. This is a 1 bedroom apartment and can feel cramped with 3 or 4 adults. Although we do allow up to 4 guests, larger groups should be aware that they may be trading comfort for economy. We have a 2br apt in the same building that is a better fit for groups of 3 or 4.

This apartment has everything you need for a relaxing beach vacation. You will be on a quiet pedestrian street in a great part of Venice, yet in just a few minutes you can walk to Muscle Beach and see all the bohemian glory of Venice Beach. Walk two minutes inland and enjoy the serenity of the Venice Canals. Free parking for two standard cars - a rare commodity in this area! When you are relaxed out, a 30 minute drive will take you to Hollywood and all of the hottest clubs in the country. A farmers market is held every Saturday morning nearby, great for spotting celebrity Venice residents and getting great food.

Other Activities: boating, biking, racquetball, basketball, volleyball, weightlifting, shopping
