Venice Beach apartment description

Duplex on the boardwalk on the Marina Peninsula, near the Venice Pier. Beautifully furnished 2 bedroom 2 bath plus sofa bed and 3 plasma TV's. One Cal King plus one Queen and a sleeper couch. Full kitchen with dishwasher.

Enjoy surfing, swimming, fishing, biking, skating, strolling… or just watching and listening to the waves from the living room or patio. We've got surf boards and boogie boards for your use. Bike and other rentals available a short block away. Lots of great restaurants and bars just around the corner. This is Venice beach living at its finest. Five minutes to Santa Monica and ten minutes to LAX.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: The online calendar is up to date. Please check our rates, minimum stay and maximum occupancy shown below. There are 2 bedrooms which will accommodate 4 guests, plus a couch in the living room for a child or 2.

The parking space, at 8.5 ft x 20 ft, is larger than California compact size, but is absolutely not suitable for big cars or vans. My 2007 Toyota Highlander SUV fits just fine.

During the Winter months (Nov-Feb) the County of L.A. installs a tall berm of sand north and south of the Venice Pier, to protect public property from high surf. During that time, the view of the ocean from the rental unit is obscured.

Comment from a recent guest: 'Sylvia, we had such a great time, the place was beautiful. We enjoyed ourselves. Patti is an angel. Hope you had a great holiday, for we sure did, Thanks so much.'

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: Jeff Cook passed away on January 28, 2013. His wife, Sylvia Aroth, now manages the property. The information below is about Jeff Cook. I moved from Texas to California in 1977 to attend graduate school at UCLA. In 1979, a buddy of mine convinced me to move to Venice and I have never left. IMHO, Venice is the best part of L.A. It is a funky bohemian beach town that includes the world-famous Venice Beach and the almost-hidden Venice Canals.

              Why the Owner Chose Venice Beach:
              My wife Sylvia and I bought this duplex as an income property in 1998, and we rented it out to two separate tenants for years. Then in 2002, we decided to live the dream and move to the beach, where our daughter Mika, 11, could have her day in the sun and surf. We originally used the downstairs unit for our offices, but we lost the need for that and decided to rent it out in 2007.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              The unit is on Venice Beach two short blocks south of the Venice pier and two blocks from the Venice Canals. Just north is Washington Blvd, which terminates at the Venice pier, and has many eclectic shops, restaurants and bars. On Venice Beach you can lay out in the sun, swim, surf, take a walk, play volleyball, etc. Just half a mile north on the boardwalk is the crazy/famous part of Venice Beach, with stores and street vendors and artists, Muscle Beach, the chain-saw juggler, etc. On the boardwalk you can rent bikes and skates, eat, shop, or just stroll and enjoy the sights.
