Guestbook comments from the owner

Your place was exactly what we were searching. In this residential part of Venice close to every thing. The first time we entered the garden after travelling 23 hours will stay in our memory for a long time, it was fabulous with all these lights welcoming us.

Don t hesitate if you come to Paris to contact us, it will be a real pleasure to meet again with you and share some places to see here (or in the French Province).

It will be so great if we could go back to your place sometime. We ll see what life will propose to us !

My high school age son and I spent four nights here and was charmed and delighted by the place. John is a lovely gracious host. The place is both spotless and comfortable; John has terrific taste. I hope to go back!

Simply lovely...

  • 5 of 5

A truly wonderful 'home' for my visit to LA, and absolutely my new favorite. This cottage was perfectly appointed with the most beautiful, tranquil atmosphere (the outdoor garden/room was my go-to retreat during my stay), and it also happens to be perfectly situated in Venice with a quick walk to Abbott Kinney. The location made for an easy Uber ride to the theatre in LA -- and a few tasty culinary venues -- during my stay, and then back to Venice to what truly felt like 'home.' The owners have created something very special here. I certainly look forward to coming back on my next trip to LA.

Nice, quiet and convenient stay

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I had a nice stay here for the month of August. The property is conveniently located close to many shops in the heart of Venice. There is a small office where I worked every morning. The bedroom is comfortable with enough closet space for us. The kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfasts and dinners. The sitting area is comfortable and the garden is quite lovely. Overall we had a very nice and comfortable stay.

Charming but not inviting!

  • 2 of 5

Very musty, clean inside, but a little shabby. TV was not programmed for use. Ice maker was full but ice was inedible. Although this place was somewhat charming and set up for entertaining, there was zero tolerance for any company (family and friends) or small get togethers other than the occupant on the contract.

Owner's Response: We welcome this review as an opportunity to reiterate: no access to the premises to any person(s) not on the inquiry/agreement is permitted. This guest (who was lovely and said she didn't know any better because she didn't read the ad nor the Agreement) had invited 7 guests over at 9:00 PM on a Wednesday and put a streamer on the fence to alert addition party-goers to the gathering's location. It is my assumption that if this party hadn't been shut down, she wouldn't have written the only bad review for she was asked on her first day if there was anything we could do for her and she said the place was lovely and that she didn't need anything. But she chose to dishonor the agreement which (as mentioned in the notes in this ad, as well as the Rental Agreement) states that only occupants listed on the inquiry and rental agreement are to be provided access to the premises. Quiet enjoyment is what this property is suited for and is what the neighbors deserve This policy is clearly stated in the Notes in the amenities section of this ad, in the Rental Agreement& earlier in these Review Responses. It is strictly enforced.
