Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We are both in the film industry which brought us to beautiful state of California. I came from Canada 12 years ago and Stuebe from Chicago, 30 years ago. Given our lifestyles, we both ended up living in Venice which we love. We love getting on our bikes and cycling down to the beach/boardwalk or Abbot Kinney Boulevard where you are bound to run into someone you know. That is the beauty of Venice. When we are not working or looking after Glencoe Retreat, we love to hook up our Holiday House to our 64 Chevy and travel up the coast to enjoy the California coastline.

Why the Owner Chose Venice Beach:
We love the fact that the property is just far enough away from the beach where you will have quiet, serene nights. You will not have to fight to find parking and you can get on a bike to be at the beach in 10 minutes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The owners have an outdoor pizza oven that they are sure to start up when you stay! And the pizza is divine!
