About the property

Superb Venice Beach home in the middle of it ALL!

Our home is conveniently located at the beginning of a desirable walk street (no cars). The property offers the best of both worlds; maximum privacy but superior location that is 2 blocks from the Abbot Kinney shopping and dining district. It is also a little over a 1/2 mile to the world famous Venice Beach and Boardwalk. Whatever you consider to be an ideal vacation is available to you in this Shangri-La by the sea. If you are a beachcomber, there is ample room to relax and frolic in the sand and surf. You will also be in the middle of the action of Venice's famous Boardwalk. There you will find an eclectic mix of performers, vendors, sidewalk cafes and bars. You can also rent a bike or roller blades and venture down the path to the Santa Monica Pier and 3rd Street (Shopping) Promenade which is only a short distance away.If shopping and/or dining is your thing, Abbot Kinney is likely to satisfy all of your desires. GQ Magazine has called it the “Hippest Block in America” and there you will find a multitude of shops and many highly rated dining options.

Our home offers you the ideal “get away from it all” feel that is essential when it is time to recharge your batteries. From the exterior the house has a magical, English Country look. There is a tastefully landscaped front yard which sets the stage for our most welcoming home. Enter the front door and you will find our expansive living room on the left. This room has vaulted ceilings and artisan painting that offers a dramatic space to enjoy our fireplace and flat screen TV. On the right you will be in our dining area (also vaulted ceilings) that comfortably seats 8. Beyond that room is the fully updated, European style cook's kitchen. Among other things, here you will find a double oven and a Viking cook top. Continue down the hall and you will find a bedroom on the left. This room includes a double bed, a flat screen TV and a DVD player. Across from the bedroom is a brand new spa bathroom that is also fully accessible with a roll in shower. In the rear of the downstairs is a family room with a flat screen TV, and DVD player. The room has 8 foot wide doors that open to an enchanting backyard with tasteful furnishing and a large gas grill. Go up the stairs and you will find the master suite as well as a 3rd bedroom. The Master Bedroom is equipped with a flat screen TV and DVD player. The Master Bath is also brand new and fully accessible with a roll in shower. Each upstairs bedroom has its' own furnished terrace which looks over neighboring treetops. This exciting area combined with the serene retreat of our welcoming home, offer the ideal complement that is sure to deliver a memorable vacation.

PLEASE NOTE - As far as PARKING is concerned, there is one off street spot (in front of our garage) and ample on street parking in directly in front of our home (please refer to the pictures accompanying the listing).


From its’ world famous boardwalk and beautiful beach to the shopper’s paradise of Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice offers a unique and vibrant mix of activities and attractions. Originally called “Venice of America,” Venice was founded in 1905 by developer Abbot Kinney as a beachfront resort town. Kinney’s initial vision of creating a cultural mecca was set aside to accommodate the public, and Venice became the “Coney Island of the Pacific,” complete with an amusement pier and a miniature steam railroad. Kinney also created a system of canals and imported gondolas and gondoliers from Venice, Italy.

Today, Venice is one of the most popular (2nd in the state to Disneyland) destinations for visitors and locals alike. From its days as home to Beat Generation poets and artists, Venice continues to be an important Los Angeles cultural center. Whether you’re looking for some fun in the sun, a unique shopping experience, or a wide variety of dining choices or an evening of art and music, Venice has it all.

Abbot Kinney

While Venice's claim to fame may be its beach culture, its’ most stylish block, Abbot Kinney, has become a desired destination in its’ own right. The heart of the Abbot Kinney district is the area along Abbot Kinney Boulevard between Venice Blvd. & Main St. The area includes numerous shops, galleries and many cafes, bars and eateries. On the first Friday of each month an additional attraction are the dozens of food trucks serving gourmet food at great prices. All of the local shops remain open late into the night.

Ocean Front Walk/the “Boardwalk”

There is no denying that the main attraction is the world famous Boardwalk. All year round (especially during the summer season and on weekends) you will find street entertainment of all kinds. Street performers include singers, dancers, musicians, jugglers, acrobats, mimes, comics, magicians, prophets, fortune tellers, and untold others. You will see people with tricolor hairdos, painted faces, weird tattoos, and outlandish clothing--or lack of it. It is a virtual sidewalk circus! It is also an open air flea market with an eclectic variety of goods and services. Along the walk you will also find an assortment of retailers, including souvenir shops, bike rental outlets, arts and crafts, restaurants and snack shacks. A popular option is to sit at one of the ocean-side restaurants to do some serious people watching. There are also playgrounds, skate parks and courts for basketball, handball, and paddle tennis. Muscle Beach is an infamous outdoor weight room (made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger) where fanatic bodybuilders pump iron in a public show of strength.


The 3 mile ocean beach offers activities for the entire family. If lounging in the sand is not your bag, surf on the crashing waves, ride a bike or roller blade along the path to Santa Monica and beyond.


Venice's canals (complete with ducks) are home to some of LA's most eclectic residential architecture. See tiny bohemian cottages next to million-dollar ultra-modern houses. The canal streets are between Washington Blvd. and Venice Blvd.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house was amazing we loved it and the location it was a new approach for us being a working team as we normally stay at hotels but I cannot stress that the 3 of us staying at the house had a great time and also allowed us to get more work done in a more sociable enviorment it has definitely given us a new approach to our business travel.

The 2 girls that were traveling with me certainly took full advantage off the short walk to Abbott K and the beach a much more relaxed way of working when you have all that on the door step.

The house was clean and had every facility we could ask for

Many Thanks for allowing us the share your house

Wonderfully appointed home and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I had a fantastic getaway vacation and couldn't have asked for more. The kitchen is fabulous and had everything we needed to cook some great meals and enjoy the outdoor space. A quick walk to Abbot Kinney and the incredible Erewhon Market made everything easy! We will absolutely be back as we can't imagine a better spot to enjoy Venice from.

Perfect Venice Beach Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, the house is beautiful, exactly like the pictures, clean and well maintained. The location close to Abbott Kinney was ideal, so many great restaurants and shops within walking distance. Customer service and communication with the host was top notch. We will absolutely return next time we're in town.

Great space to hang out with family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over labor day weekend with our family of adult children and had a great time. The house is adorable but spacious. The location is perfect! Very convenient walking distance to Abbot Kinney, and about 20 minute leisurely walk to the beach. We had no trouble finding parking, which can be a challenge in Venice. The house has fantastic outdoor space to hang out and eat or just sip some wine. Great indoor space as well to watch family movie. The kitchen is well equipped. Would definitely stay again.

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 20 year old daughter in late July, and we were extremely happy with the house and location. The house is definitely one of the most beautifully decorated rentals we've ever stayed in, and the whole place - outside as well as inside - is absolutely charming. It's also very comfortable and well equipped. We especially enjoyed the patio (one of the reasons we picked this rental over some of the others in the area was because the patio looked so inviting).

As others have noted, the house is super convenient to Abbot Kinney restaurants (don't miss Gjelina!), shops & bars but a bit of a haul (20 minutes or so) if you walk to to the beach. There is a lively young family next door and some construction going on nearby so it's a peaceful place in the early morning but not so much at other times. But Venice houses are all close together and one of the reasons we chose to visit the area for a couple of days is that it's lively, so that wasn't an issue for us.

All in all, would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
