As most beach properties along the California Coastline, this property is not equipped with an A/C unit. With average beach temperatures ranging from 65 to 75 degrees year round, air conditioning is not generally needed in our beach areas. For our warmer days, each of our beach properties is equipped with portable ventilator fans which, when combined with open windows, allow the fresh ocean air to circulate and cool your property to a very pleasant temperature.
We are currently staying at this rental. We booked this unit because it had televisions in 3 rooms, which was necessary to accomodate our 6 person family which includes grandparents to children. Upon arrival the unit was hot as a sauna and not aired out in preparation of our arrival. One of the two extra fans was broken which just added to the frustration. The living room furniture is in rough shape and very worn. None/zero of the televisions work and even though Nick came that evening from Globe Homes...he was unable to get them working. We are missing remotes to all the televisions and even with Nick getting the living room t.v. working...it still has very limited options. When we booked this we read Time Warner Cable came with the rental and every rental we have ever stayed at year after year has Cable with the highest available package including movie channels. States it came with two tandem parking spaces but space sign in back asks for only one car to be parked in space. The biggest issue is that we waited our entire 2nd day of vacation for maintenance to come out and straighten the issues out and nobody came...even after I called 2 times to check the status of arrival. Globe has ended up being a disappointment as a Property Management Company and I will never rent one of their properties again. I would hope that the owner will consider someone else to manage their properties....as we will be lodging a complaint with Home Away and Globe Management in the very near future....maybe by end of day if someone does not get out here and fix these issues.
The property manager was very unhelpful.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.
Once we got to the property it was fine, my group didn't need to spend much time at the apartment so it was all about location. However, the booking agency /management was all around horrible. Booking this property was the worst experience I've ever had with any airbnb/vrbo/hotel in my life. I hope to never have to deal with Globe Homes again.
The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.

Globe Homes offers exceptional service. My son has stayed in many of their Venice apartments. We chose this apartment because it has three bedrooms and is on an upper floor. It is also two blocks from coffee shops, restaurants, and shops on Abbot Kinney. The apartment has three televisions, an ironing board, full kitchen, and extra fans. My only tiny request would be for a kitchen sponge and at least one measure of dishwasher liquid. I didn't want to buy a large bottle to run the dishwasher once. Also, the bedroom ceiling fan would not work when the overhead light was off. I mentioned this to the staff, so it will probably be repaired quickly. There was an extra fan in the closet, so this was not a major problem.
This apartment is very well maintained and looks exactly as pictured. Really nice furnishings. Just steps away from Abbot Kinney - literally. The outside of the building could use upgrading but the apartment itself was great. In this neighborhood it was an added bonus that the unit came with a parking space. We stayed over a weekend and the noise from a party next door was quite loud even though all the bedrooms were at the other end of the unit. The management company was very helpful and addressed one small issue we had right away. Would absolutely recommend this apartment!
We were a party of six friends, all teachers or retired teachers form Australia. When we arrived at the apartment it was immaculately clean, the lights were on and there was music playing in the background. We had made arrangements for self check in, which was easy. We had a car and there was a parking spot provided at the back of the building. The three bedrooms were well appointed all with hanging space and room for luggage. The kitchen was brilliant, there was a supply of herbs and some condiments on hand. We like to cook and there were pots and pans available which enabled us to do so.
The lounge and dining area was a good size and was big enough to accommodate the six of us comfortably. We called the concierge who was able to arrange and print off discount tickets for Universal Studios on our last day.
Overall our stay was very comfortable. We enjoyed it immensely.
Lovely property, just as described. Close to beautiful beach and restaurants. Good access into L A. Allowed for a relaxing end to holiday.
Downside for us was the neighbours downstairs. Smoking outside meant needed to close windows or have a unit full of smoke. Loud music and talking till early hours of morning. Seemed unable to close metal gates without slamming them shut!
