Venice House Rental Photos and Description

The Opposite House in Venice Beach - Easy Beach Living & Ocean Inspired Lifestyle

Spend your next L.A. vacation at the charming Opposite House in Venice Beach!

Fully-remodeled in July of 2012, the 1-Bedroom / 1-Bath Other Place is your home away from home. Beautifully designed to celebrate Southern California's indoor-outdoor lifestyle, big bay windows bring in plenty of natural light to the spacious master suite. Functional kitchen indoors with professional chief's BBQ/oven station outdoors. Spacious drought-tolerant garden with tranquil water fountain, lay back in the chaise & doze off in southern California's warm ocean breeze.

Ideally located on a quiet upscale street in the center of Venice Beach community, the Other Place is just a short walk to retails and cafes, and a 5 minutes bicycle ride to the 'it' hubs of Abbot Kinney and Santa Monica Main Street. Sand and waves are only 2 miles down.

When you arrive, enjoy the reclaimed hardwood floor, outdoor grill, drought-tolerant garden, and modern amenities including Tempurpedic Cal King bed, modern skylight, big flat-screen TV, Bose sound system, and high-speed wireless Internet. An on-site carport (one car) plus street parking is available. Well-behaved pets are welcomed prior to owner's approval.

Come and explore the diverse and vibrant mix of So Cal cultures. Stay at the Other Place, indulge yourself in this seclusive hideout, and enjoy easy breezy California beach life to the fullest!

Guestbook comments from the owner

When I received the detailed instructions for check-in I felt very 007, international spy-ish, but any trepidation I felt about the process, instantly dissipated upon my arrival and easy access to the property. My reservation at The Opposite House was initially for 3 days, but I extended it to 5 when I saw what an incredibly clean, comfortable & beautiful space it was. The bedroom is huge, the bed is big enough for 3 adults & the bathroom was more like a spacious private spa. Every design detail was brilliantly executed to make staying at the property a wonderful, unforgettable experience. There is no doubt that the hosts invested their hearts and souls into creating a space worthy of Architectural Digest!

Perfect for our trip to Venice Beach with our furry friend

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable at the Opposite House. It is in the East of Lincoln are and within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. We really liked having a place to park the car within inside the fenced in backyard and that the dog could hang out on the deck. The bathroom is very clean and modern. The kitchen is a bit cramped but was fine for making breakfast each morning.

HUGE bedroom with tons of storage. Bed is on a platform - was comfy.

Logistics were fine - directions, lockbox with key, clear instructions, phone access to property management or owner (we did not need to call them - as we had no issues).

We'd plan to stay again our next trip :-)

Perfect Pet-Friendly Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Upon first inspection (in the dark) this place looked good - However I kept finding hidden gems EVERYWHERE

*** Dog door.. SUCH a Bonus!!

If this place was free - we would have easily booked for a whole month - The kitchen had everything... Spacious bedroom, awesome!

the garden was seriously epic, totally enclosed and enough space for our beagle to play, felt safe with the large garage door.

The owners were accommodating and helpful and answered any questions.. Location was great for quick trips to whole foods/beach/motorway to long beach

your own laundry and bath were perfect

Only thing missing is a slightly bigger table... Understandable due to the doorways and large kitchen so used the outside area as an 'office'

Will be back for sure (when it's not fully booked haha)

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here last December and again this month. Very convenient and nicely appointment place for short stays. Private patio and yard is a great added feature. Close to the beach, restaurants, coffee shops, and stores. Owner and staff very friendly and prompt in replying. Had an issue with the garage door opener and they promptly tended to it. Highly recommend it.

Great Outdoor Space

  • 5 of 5

The Opposite House was just perfect for our CA visit. The apartment was roomy, lovely, clean and comfortable with a wonderful outdoor space. The location worked out well for our visit. It was a very short walk to the market and some nice breakfast restaurants. It was wonderful to be able to walk to the beach as well.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Great location in Venice! Close to everything (by car). The place felt like an oasis in the middle of the city. Quiet neighborhood. I loved relaxing in the outdoor patio.

I will go back for sure!

A unique, well designed and comfortable unit with very helpful hosts

  • 4 of 5

We are an English family of 2 adults and three young children and stayed here over a long weekend this April. We used the unit as a base for exploring California so over the period of our stay (fri to mon) we actually only spent time here Fri and Sun night as we visited San diego that weekend. That said, the hard stand parking behind the automatic garage door was a great touch as we weren't sure where we could park on the street without getting a penalty. The instructions for the gate lock and the lock box for the patio door were clear enough too though we arrived in the morning , so I think sensory lights would have been useful for nighttime arrivals. The sitting room is combined with a bijou round dining table (which sits 3 at a time) and a basic kitchen with dishwasher and fridge. The area is beautifully designed but don't plan on cooking any family meals here as there's only a coffee maker, a one ring electric burner and a small toaster/broiler, which s only really useful fr toasting bread etc; this is fine for just having toast, cereal and coffee in the morning but you'll probably have to eat out for lunch and dinner if you want hot food. There is a convenience store a short walk away for basics. No vegetables there though! Great distance from Venice beach, Santa Monica pier, Lax. Super helpful hosts, they agreed to let us transfer early in the day from our previous rental (another of theirs) and when I emailed to ask for extra bedding for the kids, it was brought over the very next day. also, when we were running late on our check out day, the lady who arrived who I presume was one of the owners, was very friendly and relaxed. Nice outdoor area too with sun loungers on the deck, dining table with seats and a monster BBQ.
