Property description

Spend your holiday in comfort on the 2nd floor of a remarkable Victorian House ONE BLOCK FROM THE BEACH. Relax and sleep a 22ft wide bedroom suite with a king size bed, a sectional sofa and a writing desk looking out through a bay window. After a day at the beach, sit back and enjoy the flat screen TV in the living room on a custom made day bed. Make your meals or prepare snacks in the new kitchen and freshen up in a charming full bathroom with claw foot tub or have a quick shower in the guest bathroom.

The house is located on one of the celebrated, secluded, tree lined walk streets of Venice, nestled among some of the oldest and most beautiful examples of late Victorian and early Craftsman architecture in all of Southern California.

Light, clean , and versatile, our Summer Oasis is a classic California vacation beach house. Quiet and secluded yet steps away from the lively Venice Beach Boardwalk. Two blocks from the world class restaurants and shopping of Abbot Kinney Boulevard. A 5 minute walk to GOOGLE Venice and a 5 minute drive to the world famous Marina Del Rey .

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are two Hollywood California natives who,'after all these years' have found that perfect house at the beach that Californians seem to dream about. We bought it a few years ago and have been renovating it since day one. Renovate isn't exactly the right word. After resuscitating it, we proceeded to rejuvenate it. We believe it had been waiting for us to come along and bring it back to the beautiful home it was in 1907. At long last, we are ready to share it with people who admire and respect hand crafted houses and who may not always be able to be on the West coast or who live in Europe and want to holiday in California but who do not want to stay in hotels or modern, sterile apartments. We think you will enjoy our house and we are ready to share it with you. We are now offering both floors as individual apartments. The downstairs apartment is listed separately with VRBO as property number 357224 It is slightly larger and may be a bit better for families with children. Check them both out.

Why the Owner Chose Venice Beach:
We, like most Californians have always wanted 'a place at the beach' There's really nothing else to say. Venice has some of the finest old houses in Los Angeles and we love the care that went into making ours. We have kept most of the original building materials and hardware in place as there just isn't anything made today that can compare to the windows, the hinges, the 200 year old redwood shingles that were used in 1907 when our house was built.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
First and foremost, when you walk out the door of our house, past the front garden, through the picket fence gate and turn left, you are on the shaded walk street that takes you directly to the beach in less than two minutes. Walk out the back door, past the hot tub and the (occasional) vegetable garden and out the back gate. Walk three short blocks East and arrive at the trendy restaurants and shops of Abbott Kinney Blvd. These are among the unique benefits you will enjoy while staying at our home. There is also the Santa Monica Pier and Marina Del Rey. Both also walking distance from the house. It's a rare treat to be in Los Angeles and to be able to walk to so many destinations and attractions.
