This contemporary Italian Villa offers three stories, 2300 sq ft with an 800 square foot roof deck with ocean views. 3 bedrooms + a loft/bedroom 4 and 4 bathrooms. (9 beds in total and an air mattress. We have accommodated 17 people for more then a week) The 16 foot ceiling, open floor plan, and pristine master suite give it the 4 star hotel feel. One bedroom on the ground floor with direct access to a sunny courtyard. The Master and 3rd Bedrooms are on the 3rd level. The 2nd level is all about family with a kitchen designed for entertaining, 16 foot soaring ceilings in this giant great room. The Loft is private and tucked away between level 2 and 3. It is a great TV room by day but easily transformed into a comfy 4th bedroom when the lights go out. Best of all the roof deck has been made into an outdoor great room. This Tropical oasis is crawling with exotic plants, has 3 water falls, a full Italian stone kitchen, with built in barbecue, sink, frig, bar and gas fire table built into the bar. It also is equipped with a 40 inch super bright outdoor flat HDTV that is weather proof. Yes, TV outside! You can relax in the sun and watch the ocean or BBQ and party with friend while watching a game or a movie. The house has a 4 zone audio system with speaker through out the house with an MP3 hook up. So bring your Ipod and listen to you favorite music all through the house and on the roof deck. This is the ultimate beach Vacation Spot.

This Italian Beach Villa is located in a great beach community with quiet walk streets, fun restaurants, and beautiful beaches. You can walk everywhere. Only one block to the beach. Swim, surf and pay beach volleyball only 100 yards away. Afterwards wash off in our outdoor shower in the private court yard at the Italian Villa. Walk to dinner and take a stroll on the board walk, its only 4 blocks away. There you will find bike/roller blade rentals, surfing lessons, shopping Starbucks and great restaurants all open late. The fun never stops. 3 more blocks is the famous Venice Beach Board Walk. With funky people, live entertainment, and tons of great deals on anything you could ever want.

I challenge you to find me a better combination of vacation house and location any where in the world!

great house

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as described; 1 block from beach, within walking distance to resturants, clean etc. We had 2 families, 9 people, plenty of space and beds, never ran out of hot water. Roof top deck is great! Everything is included; beach chairs, nice linens, beach towels and toys for kids. We really enjoyed the house and would highly recommend!

Perfect family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Jon was super responsive...when there was a problem with the garbage disposal he had a plumber there within the hour. Great host. Wonderful view of the fireworks from the roof where we gathered in the hot tub...and the long wooden table in the living area accommodated 15 people. Perfect place for our family reunion.

What a beachhouse!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Jon's beachhouse for a week for our annual family vacation - 6 adults and 4 kids ranging from 7 mo to 3 yrs. Though there are lots of stairs, they are all comfortably carpeted, as were almost all of the floors. The great room and loft had beautiful buttery soft leather couches and chairs - so easy to fall asleep or relax on. The long wood dining table was nice, as were the bar stools against the granite kitchen counter.

Seating in the loft was plentiful. I especially liked the coffee table, which had chairs beneath that pulled out for extra seating. We were all able to fit comfortably in the loft to watch TV together as a family. Overall decor was very pleasing to the eye and thoughtfully planned.

The beds were comfy, sheets soft and towels plush. Plenty of soft, medium and firm pillows too! It is obvious that Jon takes pride in his beachhouse.

We loved the rooftop deck. There is plenty of varied seating. The fire pit, private hot tub and big screen TV were a real plus.

Jon stopped by to meet us on check-in day to make sure we were happy with the accommodations, which I found to be a nice, personal touch. As during our booking, he was quick to respond to emails and calls during our stay.

The beach is only a block away and there are lifeguards stations. We were able to walk to the town as well as to Venice Muscle Beach. The drive to Santa Monica was quick and scenic.

The tandem garage was a decent size, though we opted to park only one van inside and the other on the street. Luckily, street parking actually wasn't that hard to find.

We had a fabulous vacation week at this spacious, comfortable and well kept beachhouse. Thank you, Jon!

Perfect !!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family reunion was made extra special because of this beautiful villa. So much space along with every amenity you could want. So close to the beach and the rooftop deck makes for great relaxing, especially while watching the big screen (even though the Cavaliers lost).

Also easy to get to the LAX.

Perfect Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights at the "Italian Beach Villa" and had a wonderful time. Jon is very pleasant and quick to respond to e-mails and text.

The house is BIG...there were only 4 of us and we could have easily slept 10 more people. Great location...not more than 100 yards from front door to the beach and a very easy/quick drive to Santa Monica. Parking in front of the house is a hit of miss proposition but there is a garage...take Jon's word for it when he says it's a tight space. We had a Jeep Cherokee and didn't have much more than a foot on each side to spare...but we managed. Those who have a concern with stairs should be cautious...the house has a lot of them, but worth the climb. Rooftop deck is large and a nice way to unwind in the evenings.

Overall 5 stars!
