Great Location

  • 3 of 5

Positives: The location is great. The beach is about 3.5 blocks/7 minute walk away. Every direction you go has great shops, restaurants, bars, etc. (we fell in love with Gratitude, a restaurant located only about 2 blocks away!). There is a bike rental a few blocks away if you want to explore, but we were happy walking everywhere. Booking was easy and the owners were very responsive to any questions we had and usually responded within a couple hours. The condo is clean and the price is great – it was about $50-$100 less per night than other places in the area we considered. The condo is spacious for two people and the kitchen has everything you need to make meals, etc.

Negatives: There is no air conditioning, so it’s pretty warm in the condo if you visit during the summer. This was fine for us, but I imagine it would be uncomfortable for some people. There is a small fan in one of the closets, but it’s pretty beat up and didn’t have the power to cool the whole condo. The outdoor amenities described said there are beach towels, but there were none. I typically use HomeAway specifically because little accommodations like this are provided and it makes traveling across the country easier, but we were provided with only 2 bath towels. I mentioned earlier the kitchen is great – only downside here is there is lots of old food leftover from previous guests. There was open bacon and some spoiled food in the refrigerator when we got there. The cupboards are also full of items that have been expired for 2+ years. The refrigerator and cupboards could definitely use a purge!

All in all the experience was positive and I would likely stay here again. I was torn on the 3 rating and would have given a 4 if my expectations were better managed (i.e. knowing up front there wouldn’t be AC or beach towels so I could have prepared, knowing the beach was was 3.5 blocks away, not the advertised 1.5, etc.). If you are on the fence about whether this is the right place for you I do recommend it as long as you are comfortable with no AC.

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband had a lovely stay! We felt like home. Being able to walk to the beach, skatepark... Very close to whole foods and other very nice food options!

And having a parking spot is a plus since sometimes is hard to park on the street!

Would go back for sure!

Great Location and Very Clean

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend. The location is great with a short walk to the beach, Main St shops, and other good spots. No need for the car

The condo is very clean and the kitchen has just about everything you need. Also have to agree with the other reviews that the bed is very comfortable. The Owners were prompt in getting back to me initially and leading up to our visit.

Look at your bed sheets before you sleep in the bed

  • 1 of 5

When we were going to sleep I first saw a long black hair on pillow. .we pulled the covers back and saw another long black hair and you can see the sheets had some serious stains in it at one time. We email the owner right away. He NEVER responded to us. I would not recommend this place..it's a decent area. But The Next Street over HOMELESS People Hang Out And Sleep there

Owner's Response: Strange that I never received an email but if I had, I would have flown in and removed the two hairs and thrown out the homeless people on the other street. I definitely think you should stay in a hotel in a clean little spot like Phoenix or Vegas next time. Venice is definitely not for you. Can't please a the people!

Great condo. Convenient to Venice and Santa Monica

  • 4 of 5

This is a perfect place to stay in between Venice and Santa Monica. It was convenient to both places and perfect for our short stay. The owners/operators were a pleasure to work with and very responsive. The bed is amazing and there's a wonderful little patio out front to soak up the sun. We loved staying here and highly recommend this vacation home. Thanks again for a lovely stay!
