About DD

I used to rent across the walk street when I was in graduate school so fell in love with the street then and came back to buy a place as soon as I could. The area has only gotten better.

DD purchased this apartment in 1990

Why DD chose Los Angeles County

We love the walk streets of Venice because there are no cars driving past so its quiet in a way that is impossible on a regular street.

What makes this apartment unique

Whole House Water Filtration System - even the plants drink well so you don't have to buy filtered water. Weekly cleaning by my cleaning person of 10 + years includes laundry of sheets and towels included in the price. This duplex is immaculate. We like it that way. It has an auto locking gate so if you rent bikes you don't have to chain them. Just bring them in the gate. We like long term guests and have had people stay a year. The longer you stay the better your rate.

Peaceful Venice Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of February here and we had a wonderful, relaxing, stress free month. The home is just as described and the accommodations great. The bed was comfy, the private enclosed area was cool and relaxing, and access to a washer and dryer convenient. Donna, the owner, is very friendly and accommodating. She always responded to any of our questions in a timely manner. The location, couldn't ask for better! A short walk to Venice Beach, Abbott Kinney Street and Main Street for shopping, restaurants and a great cup of coffee. Accessibility to downtown Santa Monica, the SM Pier, and the weekly farmers market were just a short ride. We just loved the area and would definitely return in the future. Also this was our first time using VRBO and we had a positive experience and will use them again in the future.

My daughter and I spent 3 weeks here in November while waiting for our house to be ready to move into...

We were in love right away, and I couldn't stop cooking in the gorgeous kitchen. We're native to Venice and Santa Monica, and it's super close to everything, but still very quiet, and pretty. Walking to Abbott Kinney was such a pleasure, and I would definitely recommend this lovely 2 bedroom to a small family, a couple, or friends.

Lovely house very close to beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 3 weeks with our 2 boys. The house is exactly as described, nicely furnished and a well staffed kitchen. The outdoor area is quiet and cool even on hot days due to tree coverage. Instructions on TV and Appliances are very good and easy to follow. We really felt at home after a short time. Abbott Kinney Street, Main Street, Beach etc. are all within Minutes walking. Parking is covered so car does not get hot, but the streets are narrow, do not go beyond mid-size with your rental car. The owner was very nice and supportive. We will come back for sure!

Perfect place in Venice beach

  • 5 of 5

Booked a week with my 19 and 25 year old and we all easily could have stayed a month.

The house could not be in a better location; close to the beach, Abbott Kinney and great Yoga , if that's your thing. It's comfortable inside and out and I didn't find myself left wanting was all there. Donna was delightful, helpful and accessible.

I can't wait to return.

Sweet beach house

  • 5 of 5

We spent a terrific month in Venice this past February. The location of this rental is absolutely fantastic. Close to the beach, close to lots of great restaurants and shops – we had a car but barely used it and instead walked or biked most places. There were three different farmers markets to visit every week that were in walking or biking distance!

The photos of the house are very accurate – it is charming inside and was clean & well kept up and the weekly maid service was very much appreciated. Also, having on site laundry was great for our month-long stay. We used the front patio everyday – it was almost entirely shaded and private enough to be able to work on our laptops outside – a treat coming from Minnesota. The walkstreet is quiet, making the house and yard feel like a quiet little island in the middle of lively Venice. We love to cook and the kitchen was spacious and a great place to cook, though missing some useful equipment (mixing bowls, measuring spoons) and the dishwasher didn’t work very well. The mattress in the master bedroom is not in good shape and sagged in the middle giving us both a backache – and we generally don’t have back problems. The pull-out couch in the guest bedroom was comfortable and we ended up sleeping there by the end of our stay.

The owner was lovely - very nice and extremely quick to respond when we had a question or concern, but at the same time seemed conscientious of not being intrusive at all.

Overall, would recommend this sweet beach house, but an upgraded mattress would make this place unbeatable!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your observations. We've already stocked in mixing bowls and measuring spoons. I'm so sorry you felt the mattress was sagging as this concern hasn't mentioned by anyone else. Everyone seems to feel they had a dream sleep. The mattress is all organic latex including the wool topper and its the best available. I wonder if it was too soft in which case a plywood support would solve this. I actually have one in storage and would have had my handyman bring it over right away and put it in for you had I known while you were there. Please know if you come back next year you will have a more perfect sleep with the firmness you require. Thanks!

This was my second time in 2 trips to LA that I've stayed here. It just keeps getting better. Now there's a daybed on the sun porch - a beautiful place to read and listen to music. This place is not only quiet, private and beautiful - its spotlessly clean and comes with weekly cleaning service from the owners long time cleaning woman who is a lovely person as well. I just feel happy when I'm there.
