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.

Wonderful People

  • 5 of 5

We had to cancel at the last minute due to a family emergency, and I cannot express enough gratitude to the owners for your compassionate understanding. It is people like you that make me want to return to VRBO and to your property. May God bless.

Convenient property for weekend SoCal getaway

  • 4 of 5

Property is clean and modestly appointed. Nicely sized for 2-4 people. Surrounding area is mixed - homeless population, limited parking but walking distance to an excellent Whole Foods. Nicely located for visit to Santa Monica, Venice, Pacific Palisades. Plan to use Uber/Lyft to get around. Well suited for a limited stay - long weekend for us was the right length.
