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!

Overwhelmingly Awesome!

This wasn't just a place to stay, it was a fantastic dream world of beauty, nature, and good karma! Magical! It should be part of a mystical tour. Definitely check it out! Our only regrets are that we wish we could have stayed longer.

Very clean and we'll cared for

  • 5 of 5

This rental house on the beach is very well cared for. My family and I enjoyed the house and had no problems. Kevin was very helpful and informative on our arrival. We really enjoyed the privacy on the front patio. We would eat dinner or lunch there almost every night. We loved having the beach so close. The secure parking is great with room for my truck. Would recommend this house to all friends and family members.

A GORGEOUS oasis in the heart of Venice Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Can I give it more than 5 Stars?? 10 Stars!!

This house was the PERFECT oasis for my family to escape to! It had EVERYTHING we needed- a very PRIVATE grassy yard , a lovely upper deck, a spacious living room area, a private parking space, AND it was literally the second property from the Venice Boardwalk & beach!! Kevin thought of EVERYTHING and then added a little more to make our stay the best vacation we have ever had! The items he provided (shampoo/conditioner/body wash/ towel/sheets/ blankets/ coffee maker/toaster) were TOP of the LINE and we felt like we were living in LUXURY!

The interior of the house is sweet - the wall art is unusual and nicer than I would have expected in a vacation rental, the furniture was beautiful and expensive looking but still comfortable. There was plenty of space inside for my whole family (myself, two full grown girls and granddaughter) to sleep in our own space and feel relaxed. My 17 year old used the pullout sofa in the dining room with an air mattress on top for added comfort and loved it. We all lounged on the sofa every evening and there was room for ALL of us to lie down! We cooked some & the kitchen had everything we needed for the fairly simple meals we were up to after long days on the beach.

The outside of this space is exactly what I needed to come 'home' to after spending time in Venice & the surrounding areas. I am a small town girl. Having my kids and grand-baby there in what felt like a big city with SO MANY PEOPLE felt a little overwhelming at times. The yard of this garden oasis is completely fenced & walled in with perfectly placed trees and bushes-with a patio table and grill. Once inside the gate, we felt SECLUDED, invisible to passersby & SAFE! That's pretty important when traveling with children! The upstairs patio was perfect as a SECOND outdoor seating area to see the ocean & relax with a cup of coffee each morning & wine each evening. The name of this property truly says it actually is a garden oasis!!

Venice was a blast! Seeing all the unique individuals living true to who they are was really lovely! The beach was clean & not too crowded. We even found a Harbor beach where there were no waves.

We brought our bikes from home. It was the highlight of our trip. I recommend bringing bikes or renting them for your whole stay. Hulu seemed an interesting option for bike rental. I would look up how it works if you need to rent bikes. It seems more affordable than any other option I saw.

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.
