Lovely, clean, comfortable cottage with great outdoor space near the beach

  • 5 of 5

A great cottage near the beach. Two great patios to catch the sun at different times of day. About 7-10 minutes walk to Washington with bars and restaurants. Perfect if your goal is to be near the beach.

Very quaint and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at sun cottage. First time in Venice Beach did not disappoint. The apartment was very close to the beach and local restaurants. We never needed the car except to take a trip to Malibu. The outdoor patio was lovely. Would stay here again.

I would never rent this property again.

  • 1 of 5

Arrived to broken refrigerator and lots and lots of ants, inside and out. Did not feel that owner and manager compensated fairly for the inconvenience and frustration.
