Venice Condo Rental Photos and Description

Boardwalk Condo, 2 Bedrooms 2.5 Baths

On the famous Venice Beach boardwalk. Spend the day people and celebrity watching from the 10 seat balcony that over looks the boardwalk, muscle beach, sand and Ocean. You can see Angelika Houston, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tommy Chong, and many more. This is the only large (1,350 sq ft) 2 bedroom unit on the boardwalk. The property is located at 1909 Ocean Front Walk and was remodeled on 9/09.

This is not a five star accommodation. The floor has some stains, and the couch and the unit is 5 years old. It was remodeled in 2009. However, it is very comfortable and can offer a rare Venice boardwalk lifestyle experience. This Venice Beach furnished rental has a fireplace, 42 inch plasma TV, lots of books, candles, paintings, and a guitar with guitar lesson book. The kitchen is new with bosch stainless steel appliances and everything you need. There is a large capacity washer and dryer in the unit. Conduct your business if you have to. Use the computer, copier, printer, broadband Wi-Fi. The computer is synched to the crisp sterio, great for listening to pandora internet radio with speakers inside the unit and on the balcony. The sterio has an ipod adapter.

Pull into your garage using the remote, smaller cars recommended. Extra garage parking is available for a fee. Stay active, the following items are provided: bike, paddle tennis racquets, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels and sarongs.

The towels and linens are 100% cotton, the pillows and duvets are down.

About The Owner

My name is Gary, I was born and raised in Chicago, went to college in Colorado and have lived in Venice Beach since 1991. I started investing in real estate in 1993 and have been active in the market ever since.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Los Angeles County

The Venice Beach vacation rental is located in a large 4-plex that I own. I live on the property upstairs. This is one of the best properties on the Venice Beach boardwalk. It is paradise.

What makes this condo unique

When you stay on the Venice Beach boardwalk you will be exposed to an eclectic cross section of people from around the world. The diversification creates a one of a kind experience that you can not get anywhere else in the world. Walk out the gate and you are on the Venice Beach boardwalk, bike path, and sand.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is what makes Venice cool. The balcony is addicting. The Venice Beach Treeman put on a show for us. Love the people watching, you can't beleive what you see. The unit is very cool. Gary was super accomodating.. Had a great time.

Great time and Gary was great to work with!

  • 5 of 5

We got last minute tickets to the Ellen show and were taking down my niece and my friends 16 yr old daughter. We wanted them to be entertained so we thought the beach would be a great place to stay, we were not disappointd, we rented bikes for an all day ecursion up and down the boardwalk. People everywhere, so fun. We spent a day in hollywood, about a 30 minute drive, but we could have stayed here the whole time and had plenty to do and keep everyone enteretained. We even played tennis, the unit provides all that! what a great decision to stay here instead of some hotel downtown!! Gary was great with recommendations on things to do and places to go. We loved the location of this condo, cannot wait to come back again someday. . The place is older, but clean and comfortable. Love the 3 bathrooms, with 4 girls it was a lifesaver and the queen bunks allowed us all our own bed! Book this place, you won't be disappointed!! Thanks Gary, we had a wonderful time here!

Great place, great time

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about Gary's house. The description is accurate and the pictures don't do it justice. We took our three boys (13, 11 and 9 at the time) on a beach vacation and had a blast! Perfect location (I didn't know how much I was going to like paddle tennis!), clean, everything worked well, close to many restaurants (we really like the window restaurant just to the north)...and finally Gary. He's just a great guy. I would rent this place again in a heartbeat.

Our favourite place in the world!

  • 5 of 5

This was a trip of a lifetime for our family. We are from the UK and my husband and I had been to LA before the kids were born. We had promised them we would take them to LA and we wanted them to experience the American lifestyle.

We had a week in Venice Beach and a week in Newport Beach. Venice outshone Newport by far, and most of that was down to the choice of apartment. The kids now want to live in Venice! It truly was the most fabulous week in Gary's amazing apartment. Gary met us upon arrival and showed us around. He was so helpful and even took us up to see the view from his apartment upstairs. The balcony was the highlight, but the whole apartment was perfect. We have 3 children, aged 15, 12 and 9, they loved the double bunk beds, and the master bedroom was great, the sheets were clean and fresh and the bed was really comfortable. The apartment was equipped with all the basics for cooking, washing up etc, the cooker and fridge were great, and we loved the mezzanine kitchen. Three toilets, and loads of bathroom space. So no waiting! It didn't feel like a rental property, it felt like our home for a week.The apartment came with (amongst other things like beach towels, buckets and spades) a cruiser bike, which we used on the boardwalk. Also paddle tennis rackets, which we used constantly. We'd wake early with jet lag, and get the courts to ourselves. Being right opposite the courts the kids were able to pop over there on their own without us worrying. And they were free....nothing like that in England! I must say I was a little nervous of choosing an apartment right on the boardwalk, as I'd read some reviews to say it wasn't safe at night. This proved to be totally incorrect in our experience. We went out at night and felt totally safe. Also it wasn't noisy so we weren't disturbed when we wanted to sleep.

Everyone was so friendly. I would love to spend every summer in Gary's apartment. We will most definitely be back. We love America, we love LA, but more than anything we love Venice and Gary's apartment. Thank you Gary for letting us stay in your perfect home.

The most wonderful vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

The property location is superb. Right on Venice Beach Boardwalk, 100 yard from the ocean. You can watch the colorful motley crowd and the beautiful sunset from the balcony. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. Everything we expected to find we found there plus some nice extras. The owner is wonderful, he answered my emails and calls very promptly, was very friendly and helpful. And his little dog Freddy was also very friendly and hospitable, and super cute. A lot of sports nearby – paddle tennis right outside the door, the famous muscle beach just steps away, also basketball, skateboarding, biking. Bike rental shops on every corner and in between. The best coffee and very good bread pudding around the corner at Schulzies and the best sashimi lunch at Poke-Poke. A lot of other nice restaurants nearby. Visit the Farmers market on Friday for fresh produce, bread, cookies, freshly squeezed juices. Walk around the canals. Shop on Abbot Kinney boulevard. The suggestions are endless. Very highly recommended.
