Reviewer Comments:

The apartment at 31 S Venice was perfect. Having the garage was a huge help since we drove down the coast in a rental car and needed somewhere to park the car. Inside the apartment was clean and comfortable and we really loved the shady backyard. We also really appreciated the beach towels, blankets and umbrella for our beach trips.

IT WAS BAD !!!

  • 1 of 5

Great location as far as the BEACH is concerned....... BUT !!!!:

Apt. was very stuffy with stale odor. We bought Lysol and my husband sprayed EVERYTHING down.

The sofa was old and motley bedroom mattress sinks in very uncomfortable.

There were not enough towels for my family of 3; we arrived to 1 washcloth and 3 bath towels.

The fire alarms were in the drawer not a good thing for an apartment with a gas stove.

No broom to sweep or cleaning solutions for tub/dishes. We purchased Comet and left it.

The television cable signal jumps and with 5 remotes no instructions were provided.

I think FREE use of bicycles with rental would have been nice.

There was one evening when there were items that appeared to belong to a homeless person was found near the laundry room, management was notified and I was told that they would investigate to make sure it did not belong to any other guests...that call NEVER came.

There is a bar right behind the apt. and you hear clean up from 2am-4am with trash and bottles and opening resumes for the next business at 6am.

If someone rents upstairs and have children...YOU ARE SCREWED!! You hear EVERY footstep or if you have all night partiers...YOU ARE SCREWED!! They come in at 3am drunk and stumbling...that coupled with the cleanup in the back, you can count on not getting any sleep from 2am-7am.

The garage is GREAT....BUT VERY VERY TIGHT!! If you can't get in your car now through a 12 inch opening (like a car parked very close to you)..YOU ARE SCREWED!! But hey it beats daily parking costs!!

If you need to contact management....better do it before 4:50pm.... They won't answer. But if you call or text during business hours they are Johnny on the Spot.

The motion light outside of the door NEVER worked so when we would arrive after sundown we could not see ANYTHING because it's so dark unless you use your flashlight from your cellphone...THANK GOODNESS FOR CELL PHONES.

NO TV IN BEDROOM!! We had our laptop and a subscription to Direct TV so we made it work.

As for LOCATION BY THE beach....YOU CAN'T BEAT IT!!!

Property needs some TLC and updating...I think reinvesting in the property and upgrade is greatly needed.

Reviewer Comments:

I already reviewed this property but I'm being asked for another review... so sorry if this is a duplicate. First, don't be fooled by the obviously fake reviews. This place is a dump. Maybe good for a bunch of frat boys on spring break but that's about it. Cons: This place is OLD, smelly, dirty... black mold around the tub and sink. TV cuts out after about 20 min. The sofa has weird stains. Small, noisy and in a sketchy part of the city. Lots of homeless and drugs. Noisy bar right across the alley. The garage would be perfect - for a clown car - but not for a real car. It's super small. Good thing I've got a sun roof to climb out. Pro's: It's near the beach. Fast Internet. Note: Management does respond quickly - we had a back gate lock problem. Homeless people were using the washer/dryer in the shed. Management came right out and fixed it. Minus 1 star because they (or somebody) didn't program the door code properly and we were stuck outside at 8pm. But they did answer the phone and give us a backup code.

Don't believe the fake reviews - this place is a dump!

  • 1 of 5

First tip for visiting Venice Beach - Don't. Ick. Homeless people everywhere, drugs, dirty... yuck. But if you HAVE to visit Venice Beach and can't get out of it - like say your son moved here and you have to visit him - you may think you want to stay near the beach. Bad call. But if you must stay near the beach, that's what this place has going for it. It's only a short walk to the beach. And that's it - the only positive for this place. Oh wait- blazing fast WiFi. And 2 bottles of water in the fridge. But that's about it.

The negatives - Well lets start with the garage. Wow. We have a Sante Fe. Not a huge monster truck. If I fold up the mirrors and drive so the passenger side is scraping the wall I have barely enough room to squeeze out the drivers side. I thought I was going to have to go out the sun roof.

Next, the arrival. VRBO (or Globe Homes or whatever) didn't have the door code programmed for us. Customer service gave us the "back up" code. I'm glad they answered promptly because previously it was a 30 min hold time to get through. And I shouldn't be totally negative. Whoever is managing this place was very responsive. We had a gate issue and they sent a service guy out right away.

Next up, the interior. Ick. The place is badly dated. There's lots of weird stains on the sofa, paint peeling off the bedroom closet door and worst of all, some disgusting black mold or something growing all around the bathroom. The place features an ancient uncomfortable bed.

The bar across the alley was VERY busy and noisy well into the night. At 4am almost on the dot every night they would take bottles out into the alley and smash them around into garbage bins. And either fireworks or gunshots. And people banging on the door. Not fun.

This tiny house is super cut up. The top floor is rented out and the modest sized home into two halves. So you won't get much space for your $$$ but the worst part of this is you are surrounded by noise all the time. The alley, the neighbors above, beside you. Don't expect any sleep in this dump.

Of course the TV was an issue. I did manage to figure out the remote (5 all lined up -zero instructions). Then the TV flakes out. The cable box is either faulty or has a 30 min timer on it or something. Unplugging it and plugging it back in will usually get it running eventually.

Best part of the trip will be seeing this place in my rear view mirrors - once I unfold them.

Reviewer Comments:

Everything was great, although, the driveway will not accomadate vehicles larger than full size. Also, they should consider updating the couch in the living room.
