Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house is really cute. I loved the location, too. So close to everything and not too congested. That was nice when I wanted to park on the street and there was always parking for my mother when she came to visit us and our newborn.

I loved the way you put the lights in the tree so that from my bedroom I could see all the nature and movement of the big trees in the back yard. And I liked the orchids you had inside. Very nice house and you guys are the nicest, too. Thanks for helping me with all my stupid luggage. I would put a grill in one of the garden areas, though. That would be even nicer. But the kitchen was great and the living room feels like an old school parlour for me and my kids to enjoy after the beach and strolling the walk streets.

Thank you for everything.

Perfect for family of 4

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. Private, a good size, two patios to lounge in, washer/dryer, and great hospitality by John. He replied to emails within minutes and it was such an easy place to hang out in.

No air conditioning but we didn't feel we needed it. It's a very secure location surrounded by fences and nice neighbours so we had windows open at night and didn't feel the heat.

Great being close to Venice Beach, great shopping and beautiful restaurants. Will definitely be back.

We ended up arriving late from drive back from san fransico. John was very accomidating as well as understanding for late check in. . Next day he communicated if we are doing good and if we needed anything. John also made us frel very welcomed at the home and given us a sense that if we needed anything to just call. Me and the kids had a great time. Felt safe in nieghborhood. Loved the private drive and washer and dryer on sight. Best ice cream shop at corner off abbot kinney. Close to Beaches and airport. Will definetly stay here again.

Lovely Venice living

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at another one of David's properties before and as with the last time, had a wonderful experience. The owners are friendly and communicative. John was there to great us and made us feel welcomed back to Venice and to the space. The home was very comfortable with lovely outdoor spaces.

The stay was pkeasant. The house was clean, however the appliances could use a bit of updating. My family and I enjoyed our stay very much. Traffic in the area (actually everywhere) is a bit congested, keep on the lookout for pedestrians, bikers, and skateboarders!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by how close this place was to abbot Kinney Blvd and whole foods. You can even walk to the canals and beach. Having a secure parking spot was a plus. We ate in the nice dining room and hung out in the living room and patios.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week for thanksgiving. The house was perfect for our little family. 3blocks to Abbott Kinney and a few blocks from Lincoln. Perfect location. Blue bus stops right in front of the house and there is a Ralph's grocery a few blocks away. Privacy was fantastic and outdoor space a luxury. Having a laundry and parking space was priceless. We loved it and can't wait to go back next year.
