Venice Beach cottage description

RECOMMENDED BY 'COASTAL LIVING' as Best Venice 'Staycation' Cottage!! Our premiere residence, The 1920's Cottage is an absolute gem. At about 800 square feet in size, this beautifully renovated vintage home features two serene, ultra-comfortable & luxurious bedrooms, one efficient Euro-style bathroom, a huge, fully-stocked cook's kitchen and an open, relaxing livingroom & dining space -- all set in a many-windowed enchanting space that looks onto our 'Secret Garden' enclosed yard, fronting onto the Amoroso Walk Street path.

We're just three blocks from the creative center of Venice - Abbot Kinney Blvd. - with its local-flavor shops, cafés & galleries -- and not a Starbucks or chain store in sight!! And another 4 blocks takes you to the beach and Venice Boardwalk -- close enough for easy access but just removed enough from the noise, traffic and transient population that sometimes make the beach area a little challenging for true comfortable relaxation!

Our charming residences, known as The Venice Beach Cottages, are located in one of Southern California’s most picturesque, exceptional neighborhoods -- the Venice Beach Walk Streets. Many of the homes in this six-square block area - located a mere 9 blocks from the ocean - front onto unique pedestrian-only “walk streets”. As you might imagine, these front yards form one outrageous collective botanical garden, with a profusion of dramatic flowers, specimen trees, intriguing art pieces and exceptional architectural design.

This area is home to actors & actresses -- Robert Downey Jr. has a home here -- music & film industry directors, writers & execs as well as notables in the fields of literature, fine arts, design and social good. In this neighborhood you’ll find history and culture, beauty and warmth, peace and relaxation -- all guaranteed to make your stay at the Venice Beach Cottages a truly memorable one.

In addition to The 1920's Cottage 2BR home, Venice Beach Cottages offers The Treetops Suite -- a big, bright, breezy & beautiful 1 Bedroom 2nd floor apartment-style residence for up to 4 guests. Both residences can be rented individually or collectively to meet your needs. A protected, sun-drenched courtyard is set between The 1920's Cottage and the Treetops Suite. A gas BBQ grill and outdoor dining table are available for enjoying the great Southern California weather.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: For over 17 years my wife, Debbie, and I have been beach residents in Santa Monica, just a few blocks north of where our Venice Beach Cottages are located. I'm a Director for the premiere residential Real Estate boutique in Venice, Bulldog Realtors and my wife is the former Group Sales Director for two ultra-luxurious beach hotels, Shutters on the Beach and Hotel Casa del Mar in Santa Monica. We're both veterans of the hospitality and creative industries having managed and produced major meetings and events for a Who's Who of the Fortune 500. When we're not making things happen for our guests and our business clients, we love to cook and eat! And travel. And eat! I'm also a professional photographer with a number of my cityscape images printed in publications around the world.

              Why the Owner Chose Venice Beach:
              We love the uniqueness of our Venice environment -- there's a creative atmosphere here that can be found only here in Venice. It's visually appealing and the mix of people is simply wonderful: artists, writers, musicians, actors, 'social good' providers, unique merchants -- you name it, you'll find somebody in Venice who does it! And that lends itself to being a vibrant, engaging community. Our special Walk Streets neighborhood is simply amazing. Criss-crossed with little walking paths that were once tiny little canals, this area is home to some of the most wonderfully eclectic and impressive architecture, gardens and outdoor art to be found anywhere in the country.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Our 'Secret Garden' Cottage is simply a gem of understated comfort and serenity. By being located in the middle of Amoroso Walk Street it's far away from any car traffic -- Amoroso is for foot traffic only! And all the wonderful gardens that line the Walk Street create a magical feeling that you are miles away from the real world. You can relax and recuperate at our 'Secret Garden' Cottage in a way that just isn't possible in most other areas of Los Angeles. And we have all the good stuff too like Satellite TV with an LCD Flat Screen, fast Wi-Fi internet and a private, enclosed front yard that's perfect for late afternoon wine and cheese!! All this and easy access to the rest that L.A. has to offer -- a perfect home-base for your explorations.
