Venice House Rental Photos and Description

Upscale & private. Main House -3 Bedrooms, 2 Bath. Separate Guest Apart.King bed

We've tried to think of everything; as a result our guest are raving and we love that they are. What we hear most when travelers arrive is 'It is so much bigger than it looks in the photos'

Ideally located on one of the best Venice beach walk streets a few steps from the beach and the iconic venice boardwalk, this casually elegant, two story, designer’s home will enchant you. Enter the private front courtyard and you will find an inviting outdoor living room to enjoy the sea breeze or get warm around a large fire pit. Inside the house details abound. An open floor plan with soothing colors, comfortable seating arrangements and bold striped rugs enhance elegant living at the beach. An eat in kitchen with a rustic farmhouse table suitable for large gatherings, shares space with a cozy family room, fireplace and flat screen tv. A full bathroom on the first floor is accessible from outside for after returning from the beach. Upstairs the enchantment continues with 3 light filled, tastefully furnished bedrooms: 1 cal king, 2 twins and 1 full bed with a twin trundle. A vintage bathroom on the second floor has a freestanding tub, toilets, sinks and plenty of counter space and storage. The back patio directly off the kitchen brings the outdoors in. It is tastefully landscaped and perfect for alfresco meals or barbecues. For larger groups (over 6 adults) a flight of stairs leads you to the guest apartment located on the second floor above a two car garage. Its wood beamed vaulted ceilings and unusual details add to the comfort and unique feeling of this one of a kind, luxury home. This ensuite studio apartment is equipped with a kitchenette, (bar refrigerator, sink and microwave), and a California king bed. It is private and ideal for larger families or multiple families vacationing together. For parents, a getaway from a getaway! Free hi speed internet and net flix is included in both the main house and apartment. Throw a towel over your shoulder for a short walk to a great beach perfect for swimming, surfing and boarding. Leave the hubbub and rich color of the boardwalk behind and upon your return to the oasis, an exterior garden shower with hot and cold water is available for rinsing off after your relaxing or energetic day in the surf and sand. You may never want to leave this barefoot luxury compound, but when you tear yourself away you will find yourself a short walking distance to world class shopping, galleries and dining on Abbot Kinney. Bike ride or walk to the amusement park on the Santa Monica pier where Historic Route 66 ends. Marina del Rey with sailing and boating opportunities is a bike ride or short car drive away. Easy access to lax airport.

About Don & Grace

We are local homeowners who have lived in Southern California for over 25 years and the proud owners of a newly renovated Venice beach house. We recognized a great house from pictures posted on the internet and purchased the house 5 days after seeing it. We have been in love ever since. Transplanted from the east coast, we love the mostly bug free environment of California and the incredible weather at the beach that allows us to live outdoors for many months of the year. We are parents to two teenagers who love to bring their friends to the beach. We want ours to be the home that they continue to visit and bring their friends from college.

Don & Grace purchased this house in 2013

Why Don & Grace chose Los Angeles

As an interior designer I wanted to make the house both comfortable, luxurious and unusual. After renting the same beach condo in Laguna Beach for 15 years I knew what I liked and expected and what kept us going back each year. I have tried to create the same high level of living in our beach home. We have furnished it like a private home not a rental. The house has charm galore from the location on a walk street, to the Dutch door in the front and finally to the optional, airy, spacious, separate guest apartment over the garage. And then there is the location. Renegade Venice Beach and the contrasting upscale Abbot Kinney Boulevard has something for everyone yet the house escapes it all and is its own tranquil, private escape. We accept most credit cards. Limits and fees apply.

What makes this house unique

We have maintained the unique character of the house built in 1904 and furnished it in rustic modern. The kitchen is well equipped with a generous supply of pots and pans and attractive tabletop items. The linens are luxurious and each room is unique with unusual whimsical features. The firepit in the front courtyard is perfect for the cool beach nights and being able to park two cars tops off the Venice experience. We accept most credit cards. Limits and fees apply.

Meeting place for all

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect. I was in town for 5 days to meet my 21 yr old son from Miami and see my daughter at usc. My husband and i were also able to include 4 of my college friends who flew in for the weekend. The home could not be more comfortable and well appointed. Don was very helpful and gracious. The beds were very comfortable which is key! We cooked several meals in the kitchen which had everything we needed. Bikes were a big plus! One of my 1st vrbo rentals and all I can say is you could really tell this owner has spent a lot of time and effort creating an ideal Venice retreat. Bravo!

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house in October 2016 with 6 adults and 2 kids. First of all it is very large, very well-equipped, cleaned and delightful house. Highlight to the kitchen appliances that are top of line and work properly. Mattresses and lines also deserve a highlight, very comfortable. The property owner Don is very helpful and provided all information about the house. We highly recommend this property!

Great location. Awesome home!

  • 5 of 5

Don met us as our Uber pulled up to the house. He walked us through the entire house explaining all that we would need to know . He told us where are some great restaurants were and shopping centers that were all close to the house . Beds we're all comfortable house was clean and well kept. This was a girls trip seven total. We spent each night around the fire pit visiting. Would definitely rent this home again !

Awesome both in facility and location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Love, love, loved this place. Location is awesome, very short walk to center of Venice beach. The house is very nice with modern and spacious accompaniments. Sleeping spaces were very comfortable (and as described). Kitchen was spacious and welcoming. We enjoyed the back patio (there is also one in front), and sat around the fire every night. Used the bikes to get around which was super nice. We used this as a base for our stay and had daily outings in the greater LA area. However, first day we at late breakfast at The Sidewalk Café (short walk from house), was so good we went back again another day for dinner and was again great. On top of everything else the hosts were gracious (even provided s'more's makings), attentive and very helpful. Will stay here again and HIGHLY recommend to others.

Owner's Response: Hi Michael, So glad to hear that you enjoyed the house and the area. Bikes are the way to travel for sure. We love being so close to everything and still being able to get away from it all when we close the garden gate! We hope you will include us in your future travel plans. Thanks for staying with us. Don & Grace

Beautiful Home - Close to Beach

  • 4 of 5

This property was just what we were looking for, it was comfortable and had a great layout for our group of 8. We loved that we were 2 blocks from the beach and the craziness of the Boulevard but could retreat home to the peace and quiet of this property. (loved the fire pit) Don and Grace did a great job designing and furnishing the property with everything you will need from wonderful beds, soft towels, fully equipped kitchen, bikes, boards etc. Parking is tight but this property comes with a 2 car garage (no vans) which is definitely a plus. The property is secure with locking gates and keyless entries which were a wonderful feature. We would definitely rent this property again when coming to Venice Beach as this property was a well cared for home not just a vacation property.

Fantastic home and hosts

  • 5 of 5

The home is lovely; a great respite but also near all the action. Don & Grace have filled the home with many items to make the time enjoyable. They make themselves available for questions or support. We walked to the beach almost daily and rode bikes to Santa Monica. Uber was always a couple minutes away to take us anywhere we didn't want to walk or drive.
