Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

For the vacationer, the worst possible thing is turning up after 000's of miles to find the key hasn't been left under the mat; and for the owner, hearing that the cleaner hasn't left the key under the mat and then trying to sort it out from a distant state. It was not an auspicious start, especially when we found the first twenty hotels we tried were booked, but Thyme made a generous financial gesture and we were in the property by lunchtime the next day. Excellent location - virtually on the beach, and comfortable enough.

The location was perfect! Really nice neighborhood with a lot of activity but not noisy at all.

  • 5 of 5

We all had a really nice time! We had 4 adults in the bungalow but it was fine as we didn't spend a lot of time there. We were so close to the beach and to the Main Street in Venice that we were always on the go. Beautiful place to stay and would Love to come back. Staying here made us feel like we were native Californians instead of tourists! We felt part of the community. Thank you for sharing this home!

Thyme's place was exactly as advertised and the kids loved having the beach so close. Thyme even called our first day to check in on us to make sure everything was good. Great service. Great condo. Great location!

Preis-Leistung stimmt nicht

  • 3 of 5

Für 3 Personen ist die Wohnung eindeutig zu klein und die Schlafmöglichkeiten sind auch nicht unbedingt das Wahre. In der Unterkunft roch es nach einem undefinierbaren Geruch (am ehesten vergleichbar mit einem feucht gewordenen Hund). Das Appartement dürfte umgebaut worden sein (nach dem Motto - aus eins mach zwei) und konnte mit einem einzigen Fenster nicht wirklich überzeugen. Überhaupt ist dort alles sehr hellhörig und sorgt vor allem der unmittelbar angrenzende Nachbar für tägliche Vollbeschallung in wirklich nerviger Lautstärke mit eigenwilligem Musikgeschmack. Die 3 Sterne gibt es für die Nähe zum Strand, durch die gute Lage des Appartements, die Parkmöglichkeit - sogar in einer Garage und den reibungslosen Ablauf durch Hr. Thyme.

Great Location Close To the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience here and loved being so close to the beach and close to some good restaurants. Thyme was available and very responsive when we had issues getting the TV working and appreciated his help. Having all the beach items provided was a great help and the beach cruiser bikes were great for riding on the beach to Venice Beach and Santa Monica Pier. I was worried about the parking situation as the alleys are very narrow and there is little street parking so having the parking spot in the garage was superb. Good central location for driving out to Hollywood/Burbank for some studio tours and also spent time driving down to Laguna Beach for a change in beach scenery. It was a great stay!
