About Alice Burston

David and I have lived for several years in Venice. I'm a California native and David joined me from England in 2003. We both lead busy lives but have been so happy in running our new Vacation Rental business. We have met wonderful people from all over the world. We love Venice and hope you will too. You will never be bored in Venice. You can veg out or be in a whirlwind of vacation activity and you never know what movie star you might see! Venice weather is great too!

Alice Burston purchased this house in 2007

Why Alice Burston chose Venice

We built our vacation rental in Venice Beach because we love it here! Venice is a unique community with lots of interesting people, artists, musicians and just friendly Californians in general. We are a community in the midst of gentrification but trying to keep our ethic past intact. What's not to like, 30 min. (if not traffic) into the heart of LA and a 10 min. walk to a beautiful beach. Weather you can't beat!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The owners are so super nice and very welcoming! I rented this place with a few friends while we were on a business trip and every time we had a visitor they couldn't believe how amazing it looked. It truly felt like a home away from home. We have all agreed to use this exact same place when we return next spring.

Great location, especially for kids.

  • 4 of 5

We visited our daughter, our son and our 2 & 3-year old grandkids for 6 days at Christmas. . We all loved Ozone Park just a few steps away from the rental. Having CVS and Whole Foods just around the corner was very convenient. We used all the beds, including the sofa bed in the living room, and all were comfy. We found the overhead lighting in the kitchen and living room excessive and the switches locations very confusing. More floor/table lighting would be nice. Bathroom lighting on the other hand was very dim. We used the fenced patio and its table and chairs for lunches and hanging out; we used the gas grill, but only after discovering the tank was empty and switching it for the full one that was right there. The patio and surrounding gravel yard provided a wonderful place for the kiddos to play. Because it is “winter” and gets dark and chilly, we had breakfasts and dinners inside. This was problematic because we had to move a loveseat in order to place the table from the corner into the living room. Then carry chairs to the table. After the meal it all had to be moved back. Then out again a few hours later. If we weren’t using the sofa bed, we could have left the table in place overnight. There is a terrific high chair that worked great for our 2year old for meals and play dough fun. When we arrived some paper products as well as laundry detergent were missing and the only lamp in the living room had a burned out bulb. Those items were all supplied quickly. The kitchen was fairly well supplied, including salt and pepper, a few spices, baking soda and sugar. I would have used a whisk, a rubber spatula, and at least one cake pan. The cabinets in the kitchen were built for very tall people and I (5’ 2”) couldnt reach any cups or glasses on my own. Still, I would recommend this rental because though there were a number of frustrating issues they were all minor. The location trumps all.

Owner's Response: Cake pan, spatula and whisk have been placed in the kitchen. We have installed a dimmer in the living room so should provide a cozier feel. The light fixtures in both bathrooms have been upgraded. We aim to be well stocked and if we do miss something let us know.

Cozy hideaway in Venice CA

  • 4 of 5

Not luxurious, but comfortable, quiet, clean and tidy. Very convenient to Venice, Santa Monica and LAX. Sunny master bedroom. Whole Foods 1/2 block away was so convenient.

Small private patio with dining set and grill is a definite plus! Owner is a doll! She promptly mailed my diamond earrings I left behind. My only (minor) complaint: would like to have had better cookware in the kitchen.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of our property! We had just purchased a set of new cookware to put in the rental but hadn’t received it yet, we try to keep things as updated as possible! We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

Nice property

  • 4 of 5

The house was wonderful. Alice let us check in early which helped us greatly and she was very helpful telling us about the area and what else to enjoy on our stay. Didn’t give five stars because no parking on premises only streetparking which was very scarce but would definitely stay here again

We WILL Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

It's been about ten days since we stayed at the house and I still can't get over these three kid-friendly facts.

1) The house is about 90 feet away from a park.

2) We watched about 10 Disney movies on--wait for it--VHS! Who knew it would be so cool?!

3) The house included a pack-and-play, which is typically the biggest single item that I have to load on top of the car.

Bonus: 90 steps away from Whole Foods!

Super quiet and so much fun.
