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 Los Angeles

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 place run by great people

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying right across from a playground and having a grocery store and drug store only a block away. On our day of departure our flight got cancelled and the owner/operator worked together to quickly to accommodate us by extending our stay with no hassle at all. Highly recommend this property.

Suited us perfectly

  • 5 of 5

More than enough room and privacy for the five of us, me, my husband and three teen-age daughters. Comfortable beds, wonderful bathrooms, great balconies and porches, towels galore, and lots of extras thrown in, even boogie boards. Loved the locale, too -- near the stores yet not feeling citified, and a ten minutes walking distance from the beach. If I could change anything though, I'd get rid of the somewhat depressing carpeting. The couple was as pleasant and helpful as all the other reviewers noted.

Great value and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Great stay. Appreciate the proximity (1/2 block) to Whole Foods grocery store. Easy to get to/from the airport. Beach about 12 blocks away. Loved the place. Owners are great!

Winter Break

  • 4 of 5

I can absolutely understand why many travelers rate this rental as a 5-stars. It is in a great location; with the beach, restaurants, and bike rentals only 20 minutes away from the property. It takes 5 minutes to walk to Whole Foods and CVS. Access to Route 1-the Pacific Coast Highway is so close and it is such a beautiful route to drive to the Santa Monica Mountains (a must visit if you like to hike). Additionally, the owner was very helpful (we had a question and she popped right over within minutes).

The only reason for four stars is to help other travelers with their planning. At night, especially since many places weren't open due to the holidays, we opted to stay in and watch movies. A TV, satellite TV access, VCR/DVD player, several video tapes, and DVDs were on hand, but we wanted to watch a Netflix or Amazon Prime film. Unfortunately, the provided TV was old and didn't have HDMI connections. Our family of four (parents and two teen sons) like each other, but huddling around a laptop to watch our films was a bit awkward.

Perfect vacation spot for family

  • 5 of 5

Alice's home was a perfect mix of location, promximity and landing spot for us. We spent five days here and would definitely return. The neighborhood is beautiful and we loved walking to the beach everyday (equipped with beach chairs and towels), stopping at the coffee shop, and coming home to a sweet, charming house!
