Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

It was an awesome stay comfortable, easy access to food,beach and the Santa Monica Pier! The only issue was the rats living outside of condo. They didn't bother us just startled us once or twice!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The Apartment was cozy four our party of 4. The bed was comfy, the couch could use an upgrade but ok for our kids for 2 nights. The location only 3 blocks from the beach was perfect and the parking in the rear worked out great. The locks on the gates could use replacing. We had no problem with noise or the homeless people across the street, They kept to themselves and even swept and cleaned up there space each morning. I wouldn't hesitate to book this rental in the future, Thanks!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Venice, just 3 blocks from the beach. I've read other reviews that complained about the homeless population but that is just a part of Venice ambiance. I did not find them disruptive. The property is great for 2 people. The sofa sleeper was too difficult to figure out.

Location is scary; apartment is fine

  • 2 of 5

It was not abundantly clear when I read the other reviews that this apartment is NOT in a good part of town. I came in at night and the taxi driver was nervous to drop me and my daughter off until my brother came to meet me. There are dozens of homeless folks camping out in tents on this block. The apartment is walking distance to a nicer area but I was much too afraid to walk around by myself, especially after dark. During my 4 night stay, there were 2 nights that both of the outside gates were left unlocked and one night wide open. The apartment itself is adequate and nicely decorated.

Owner's Response: The apartment is located across the street from Google headquarters and the world famous Gold's Gym. It is on Rose Ave, the hottest street in Venice, and it is completely safe. This is a 5 star listing in a 2 million dollar house. But yes, we do have homeless people in Venice, and I'm sorry the diversity scared you.

Pretty good

  • 4 of 5

The house it's self is great! Perfect location and very hidden from the street. Great privacy. The one thing that was really irritating was there is no air conditioning. It gets really hot and humid. Also the walls are paper thin. The pull out couch thing is weird but comfy. Also the washer/dryer is outside by thr gate by the parking but it works great. Overall we had a great experience. Lots of dishes make it easy to cook. We enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Hi, thank you for your feedback. It was 60 degrees during your stay and we don't really have humidity by the beach, so I was confused by your comment about the AC. Units by the beach generally don't have AC.

fabulous space and amazing location

  • 5 of 5

loved the location, the hot tub was fabulous after a day on the beach, the bikes were great to ride everywhere, the space was great, kitchen functional, very convenient. there was some noise one night that woke me up, started up around 3:30 AM and lasted an hour with some thumping music I think in the adjacent unit, besides that it was perfect. and I read some of the other reviews and there are homeless across the street, but very nice harmless folks not threatening or scary at all.
