Venice Beach apartment description

Thanks for checking out THE ART COLONY at Venice Beach -- your best value this close to the sand!

Fresh flowers greet you when you arrive at your lovely, modern beach apartment. Only steps to the sand of world-famous Venice Beach and Muscle Beach, and a short stroll to the trendy shops and restaurants of Venice's Abbot Kinney Blvd. and Santa Monica Pier. There's easy public transportation to the Getty Center, UCLA and beyond.

Venice is a fun, lively and colorful part of Los Angeles... but we offer a peaceful refuge in a quiet residential neighborhood. We're only steps from the sand, perfect for family fun and R&R. ***Please note that PARTIES ARE NOT ALLOWED and City of Los Angeles noise ordinance takes effect after 9pm.***

The Art Gallery apartment has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, a large sun deck, Master Bedroom decorated with art from the Caribbean, with private balcony overlooking our lush patio garden. The Twin room has 2 twin beds and Native American art. The Double room has a comfy pillow-top double bed and African art.

The Artist's Loft also has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, and has cathedral ceilings, designer finishes and furnishings throughout. In addition to its Master Bedroom balcony, it has a large roof deck with ocean, mountain and Hollywood Sign views.

Both apartments boast large, gourmet kitchens, 32-inch Sony HD TVs, high speed wireless internet, wood-burning fireplace, and washer/dryer in unit. Comfortable and stylish. Secured 2-car parking. Total living space is over 1,400 square feet. The Art Gallery is on the 2nd floor, (14 stair steps from ground level). Another unit, The Artist's Loft is 29 stair steps from ground level.

The owners are avid art collectors, and decorated their apartments from their personal collection. (Many pieces are for sale, so if you fall in love with one, you may purchase it as a souvenir of your trip!)

Come to our quiet Venice Beach oasis and experience Southern California lifestyle at its very best!

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About: We relocated from NYC to SoCal in June, 2000. Our main reason for moving? The WEATHER! We love to hear the weather reports from the East Coast. Whatever it is back east, we're having better weather here :) Not only is LA beautiful, it has an abundance of culture: world-class museums, great live theatre featuring the best Hollywood actors, shopping, fine dining and more. What I like best about Los Angeles is that it has the most ethnically diverse population on the planet.

              Why Venice Beach:
              The west side of Los Angeles is the most desirable area, and you can't get much farther west than 1/2 block from famous Venice Beach. We love this area for the eclectic mix of people, the wonderful sea air and the fun, carnival atmosphere of the boardwalk. The walkstreets of Venice provide a tranquil getaway from the fun mayhem, just steps away! Just two blocks to the east is trendy Abbott Kinney Blvd, with wonderful restaurants and shops. Your timing might be right to catch a street fair or glimpse a celebrity! Enjoy the decor and art we've chosen for the unit. We have a large and varied selection of DVDs, CDs and books for your pleasure.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              Most people stay with us for our wonderful location, location, location! Open the doors to the two spacious decks and the ocean breeze flows through the entire apartment. Guests love the decor and art, love the quality of the space and love stepping out our front door and onto wonderful Venice Beach.
