A great time in Los Angeles

  • 5 of 5

The only thing we can say is "wow". What a wonderful beach house. Only a few steps away from the ocean. We loved everything, especially the cabana. For us it was like coming home. The house was very clean and silent. When we arrived there was already coffee in the fridge and sweets on the table. How nice!! Kevin and Sydney are so friendly and helpful. We broke off the shower head but it was absolutely no problem. We informed Kevin immediately and he came and repaired it at the same day. Again we only can say sorry for this.

We saw a lot of restaurant but preferred to cook small meals for us. The kitchen has everything you need. As we had a rental car it was no problem for us to drive to the next supermarket. Everything was close enough to the house. In the evenings we loved to visit the venice canals or the beach. There were so many things to see. The only thing that is very sad was that we had only five days in los angeles. When ever we will come back we really want to stay in this cute, clean, nice, wonderful, lovely beach house again. Thank you so much for everything, greetings from Germany.

Perfect in every way

No need to look any further if you want a great location. This place was an oasis during my stay at Venice beach. It had everything I needed. I highly recommend it!

A Studio Oasis!! Very quaint and decorated so beautifully!

  • 5 of 5

What a cute, beautifully decorated studio just a block or so from the action of Venice Beach! The bungalow is so refreshing and has all the amenities and toiletries you would need! Kevin and Sydney take pride in ensuring that you will have a great vacation in their studio! Chocolates, coffee, top grade toiletries, emergency stuff in bathroom, kitchen outfitted, beach chairs, umbrella and cooler! The location is PERFECT and was a fabulous

home base for our busy athletic touring of biking, kayaking, parasailing, walking, beaching, shopping and more. We did not rent a car as we had friends who live in LA. For three days we walked, biked or Ubered (evening) everywhere! (Our friend came with a car the last two days). Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Palisades, Marina Del ray and more! So easy to get around and lots of Ubers for short money. By Uber/car, only a half hour from LAX, 10 minutes to Santa Monica, 15 minutes to Marina Del Ray and an hour to Malibu.

We stayed Wed through Sunday and it was serene and quiet at this corner lot, until Saturday. Weekend traffic was definately heard on this busy street and there was construction on the block but the construction people did not start until a considerate 8:30am :-) It was SO quiet and serene the whole time except Sat afternoon/evening.

The patio was our favorite place to hang out! Nice little decorating touches here too!!

The beds were comfortable and well dressed. We did use the pullout which was a little hard but still very accomodating! Fan over beds which was cooling!

Mid 70-'s to mid 80's weather when we were there so it was cool and comfy at night and reasonable mid day under the patio roof. Probably would need another fan for summer months.

Loved our stay at the bungalow!!! Thanks for all the suggestions Kevin, on eating, take out, groceries and activities!

Ciao Sydney and Kevin!!

BEAUTIFUL Venice Casita!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect couples getaway! Upon arrival both Kevin and Sydney gave us the 5 star treatment! Kevin gave us the inside scoop for living the beach life. With the Casita being just seconds away from the beach it made for the most amazing experience. The house was very clean, with all the amenities to make our stay relaxing! The outside cabana is perfect for having an afternoon beverage before taking a nice walk down the strand. Thanks again! Can't wait to return!!!

Amazing studio just footsteps from Venice Beach

  • 5 of 5

You could not ask for a more accommodating owner than Kevin! He was just great. The property is small, but isn't everything that close to the beach; however, the bedroom/living room is large enough (great bed) and the kitchen and bathroom are more than adequate. Bathroom and kitchen contained everything one would ever need including coffee and bottled water for your first day or two. We were there to help our daughter fix up her apartment so were not able to spend much time on property during the day so we did not get the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful large furnished patio between the front gate and the front door but will certainly plan on it during our next visit, hopefully soon. If you have not spent much time in Venice you probably can't appreciate properly the fact that this unit includes a dedicated off-street parking spot. You don't have to even use your car to enjoy Venice Beach, shopping and excellent restaurants. We have stayed in several hotels in and near Venice as well as other VRBO properties. For a couple, you cannot beat this place for both location and price! We definitely will stay here each time we come to Venice to visit our daughter if the place is available.

The Zen Cave

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful little place to just "be". The vibe in the cave is calming and relaxing. The vibe on the boardwalk is eclectic and interesting...a perfect mix of both of them was just what I needed.

Thank you Kevin for your hospitality and your knowledge of the area...and for taking the time to share it.

It was a beautiful place to be for a week.

Venice Beach’s unique culture is one of the reasons it is the most popular attraction in California. Well known for its artists and creative atmosphere - it's like a festival running year round. Boardwalk vendors sell their wares, while talented performers entertain passing crowds with spectacular feats. Our property is located 50 feet from the ocean and within walking distance to all of the major attractions. Near to Abbot Kinney Boulevard - one of LA's hippest areas for unique shopping, art galleries, and fine dining. Near to the colorful Venice Boardwalk - a 2 mile stretch packed with artists, musicians, more restaurants, and bargain shopping. Venice is home to many Movie Stars, Film Festivals, and Film Industry talent. Birthplace to Jim Morrison's 'The Doors.' Gorgeous beaches, beautiful sunsets, and fun in the sun. A 26 mile Bike Path runs along the ocean, right in front of our beach house. Great Yoga. Great Surfing. World class Museums and Theaters abound. Famous Gold's Gym. Volleyball, Basketball and Paddle Tennis Courts. Bike, Skate, and Board Rentals just steps away. Walk to the Venice Canals. Less than 3 miles to Santa Monica Pier & Amusement Park. Adjacent to Marina Del Ray with parasailing, sailing, boat fishing, and boat tours.

Other Activities: Stand Up Paddle Board, Boating, Kayaking, Snow Boarding, Drum Circle, Health/Beauty Spa, Getty Museum(s), Local Theater

short drive to Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Disney Land, and Universal Studios
