Perfect location, apartment, safe, beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This house was the absolute perfect rental for us during our visit to Los Angeles. First, the owner Kevin was overly accommodating and gracious. He personally walked us through the entire house to make sure we knew all of the amenities available and then discussed all of the things to do in the area.

Location: This apartment is one block off of the beach with walking access to the main strip of Venice Beach, but also back towards Washington, Venice Pier, the Canals, and the Marina. It is also a short walk to the best shopping in Venice - Abbott Kinney. I honestly could not pick a better location.

Safety: There is an upstairs apartment and a lower apartment . The property is all enclosed in a large red fence and each tenant is given a key to lock the gate behind them giving such a wonderful sense of security. We never heard the other tenants while we were there - very private. Private courtyards for each apt.

Parking: I've rented houses several times in Venice and you usually are left to try and find street parking. This rental comes with two amazing parking spots that are behind the locked gate - so your car and belongings are incredibly safe.

Amenities: Owners have gone out of their way to make this apartment like a home away from home. The beds, linens, and towels are wonderful. They have an iron, blow dryers, ice chest, beach towels, beach chairs - honestly everything you will need. They go far above and beyond by putting out candies on the coffee table, Q-tips and cotton balls in the bathroom, and high quality spa like products in the bathroom (shampoos, conditioners, scrubs, and lotions). Owners have gone out of their way to make your stay wonderful.

Apartment: Plenty spacious with two bedrooms, one is smaller than the other but has a great closet and a beautiful armoire. Massive walk-in closet just outside the second bedroom and beside the bathroom. They have tons of hangers so you can hang up all of your clothes and then a storage room where you can store your suitcases. A darling kitchen with everything you need, comfortable living room and couch, and another living area with a pull out couch. The building was built in 1920 but is very updated and clean. Great bathtub and pedestal sink in the bathroom.

We will absolutely be back to stay!

Great place for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with our two grown sons for a full week of southern California vacation.

I chose this house because of the rave reviews about how helpful Kevin and Sydney had been. We only met Kevin while we where there and he was very gracious and helpful, but honestly, the house is so complete that we never felt the need to contact him for anything. He was in the area one afternoon while we were grilling hot dogs, so we invited him in for lunch. We enjoyed his company as we picked his brain about southern California.

The house is in an ideal location for visiting Venice Beach. It's one (very short) block off of the boardwalk on a one way street, which means that it's relatively quiet. It has it's own parking spots and a locking rolling gate that really gives a sense of security.

The bathroom is stocked with towels and bathing supplies and hairdryer. The kitchen has all of the equipment that we needed and was even stocked with bottled water. The house even comes with a beach umbrella, boogie boards, and beach towels. There's also a grill outdoors. The only thing that I can think of that isn't included with the house is bicycles.

There are also nice places for relaxing outdoors.

If we return to S. Cal. for vacation, we would come back to this property. We were very satisfied with our stay.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Venice. The property was clean and comfortable. The amenities were above and beyond what we expected. Secure parking. Private courtyard and quaint patio to relax in the evenings. The owners were very responsive when we made our reservation. They walked us through the unit when we arrived. Within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Beautiful sunsets on the beach.

Great Location, Fantastic Host

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night for our stay and Kevin was great about contacting us and making sure everything was ready when we arrived. He came the next day to welcome us (after letting us have a much needed morning to sleep in) and was great about telling us about the neighbourhood and answering questions. The suite was clean, welcoming and ready for us when we arrived. It was very comfortable, had everything we needed and the location was fantastic. Venice itself is very busy and full of interesting things and people which is what we love. A short walk up the beach and you are in Santa Monica and the pier or if you head south through the canals you can follow the beach for miles past LAX. My wife and I both like to run and this is an ideal spot to do that with miles and miles of paths close by (I ran all the way to Manhattan Beach and it was fantastic). There are endless restaurants close by as well as any shopping you may want. Our favourite close by restaurant was Plant Food and Wine on Abbot Kinney Road, highly recommend it. Also the property is one of the very rare ones that has a yard to relax in with a great deck on it with chairs. This is a perfect vacation spot.

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
