Since Amoroso Place is a walking street and closed for vehicular traffic, access to the property with cars is through the back alley, Marco Place, where two off-street parking spaces are provided.

I love the combination of modern design with the aspect of sustainability.
The Amoroso Retreat is unique in combining the eclectic Venice Beach lifestyle with the benefits of a calming retreat.
Two private gardens. Direct walk street access. a short walk to Abbott Kinney Boulevard and 'the Linc,' as the evolving new hipster stretch of Lincoln Boulevard is now being called.
My husband and I stayed 5 nights at the Amoroso Retreat over Labor Day Weekend. Overall, it was a nice little place to stay. It was close to the beach and that was a big plus. They also have two cruiser bikes that you can rent for a week at $30/each and, that was a huge plus for us. Santa Monica has a great bike path/lane system and we were able to ride on one trail for miles along the beach front all the way down to Manhattan Beach and beyond throughout our stay.
The only reason I didn't give the place 5 stars is because it was very sparsely equipped with basic supplies in the kitchen. There was salt and pepper, but nothing else such as cooking spray or a decent spatula for cooking eggs and such. Also, they didn't provide even one bar of soap for use in the tub/shower.
All that being said, we would definitely stay in the Amoroso Retreat again. We would just come a little better prepared in the future.
Nice little house with a lovely garden, easy walk to great food. It is really best for a couple, with no door between the bedroom and the living room couch.
My husband and I stayed at Amoroso Retreat for two weeks at the end of April when we
were visiting our daughter in Santa Monica. We loved the well kept garden and the cosy little cottage, and despite being close to Lincoln Ave found it very quiet. There's a delicious Superba cafe right across Lincoln for breakfast (or anytime) and we used the bikes for trips to Abbot Kinney and
the beach. Amoroso is tucked away down a walk street, and it's a little further off the beaten track than other properties, but it's got great charm and we would definitely book it again.
perfect place for two, its small and tasteful decorated , minimalistic , which makes you feel at home. Great garden
Preciosa y acogedora casa con jardin amplio y bellamente decorado. Zona residencial ideal para descansar y a la vez cerca de la zona de diversion en Venice. Mobiliario moderno, confortable armoniosamente decorado con piezas unicas. Tiene todos los utensilios para sentirse como en casa. Genial calefaccion, total seguridad, estacionamiento. Regresaremos seguro en nuestras proximas vacaciones. Inolvidable!
I desperately needed a holiday after a bad breakup and I decided to go all the way to California blindly. I quickly made reservations for Amoroso Retreat and got on a plane. This Venice cottage was surprisingly perfect for what I needed. Morning runs on the beach, lazy afternoons in the backyard lounge and evening strolls in trendy neighborhoods all without ever having to get in my car. I spent 2 weeks relaxing in my own little oasis. Fabian was a wonderful host. I can't wait to come again next year.
