California cool, Balinese style and Hollywood cred: Californication House has all the makings of an unforgettable Venice Beach destination. Used as one of the primary locations for the Showtime series Californication and in several other film, TV and magazine shoots, the four-bedroom villa pairs a unique pod-style layout with beautiful environmentally friendly finishes. Make the space your own Zen retreat or base to explore the vibrant neighborhood.
The villa is laid out around a lush central courtyard with a lap pool and lounge furniture, perfect for morning yoga sessions or afternoons basking in the sun. Enjoy a snack or meal from the outdoor kitchen at the comfortable al-fresco dining area and gather around the warmth of the firepit in the evenings. Given the propertys Hollywood connections, its only appropriate that it have a home theater system and media room, too.
Though Californication House could be austere, with concrete floors, plenty of right angles and glass and cinder-block or white-painted walls, the clean modern lines are warmed up both by rich wood accents and pipes that provide radiant heat in the flooring. Retractable walls in many of the living areas let you open up the spaces to the courtyard for an even more airy feeling, while plump sofas and chairs in the living room add a cozy touch. There are two dining areas and two fully equipped kitchens, one in the main house and one in the pool house, to accommodate everyone with ease.
Each of the propertys four bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom. There are two bedrooms with king beds, including the master suite, one with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. Large windows trimmed in wood, modern furniture and pared-down palettes keep the bedrooms bright but serene.
Californication House may feel private and secluded, but its just a 10-minute walk from dining and shopping on Abbot Kinney Boulevard and just over 1 mile from Venice Beach and the boardwalk there. Take the car to visit Santa Monica Beach, about 3 miles away, the Sunset Strip, about 13.5 miles away, downtown Los Angeles, 17 miles away, Universal Studios, about 23 miles away, or the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens, just over 24 miles away. At the end of your stay, plan on a 7-mile drive to Los Angeles International Airport.
