Property description

Come experience the "California Dream". This is where "REAL" California culture exists. Our adorable unit is just across the street from the Beach with an outdoor dining area that overlooks the ocean, BBQ and your own private Tiki Bar inside that lights up at night! (and makes everyone smile). Our NEW DOUBLE-PANE WINDOWS make it nearly sound-proof and climate controlled so you'll sleep like a baby.

INSIDE It sleeps Up To 5-8 Persons with 2 bedrooms. Bedroom #1 has a queen size bed and a ocean view. Bedroom #2 has 4 twin beds + super deluxe queen air mattress (this is a very expensive, extremely comfortable mattress, voted # 1 by users and does not deflate. It is more comfortable than standard mattress and hypo allergenic). There is an additional rental unit available downstairs that sleeps 4 more people if you have a large group!

Living Room is VERY spacious and has a Giant Flat Screen Tv, Dining Area &Tiki Bar. Also includes: WIFI, PARKING, LAUNDRY, BICYCLES, SURF BOARDS, BOOGIE BOARDS, WET SUITS, SKATEBOARDS, ROLLERBLADES, PADDLE TENNIS, BEACH CHAIRS, BEACH UMBRELLA, and loads of games and toys for kids and adults.

The interior has Hardwood Floors, Paint, Furnishings, Carpet, Beds, Bedding, Towels, Dishes Etc.... This Fully Furnished Large 2nd Floor Apartment Has A fun Tropical Decor And A Colorful, Cozy Ambiance w/ Retro Surf Photos, Plants and bamboo walls. Its Large, Spacious Bright And Airy And Is Located In A Charming 4 Unit Townhouse (not A Giant High Rise) So It Has More Of A "Home"-like Feel Than An Apartment. This listing is new to Home Away but I have dozens of 5-star reviews from other guests on another popular listing site (call me to ask) so don't be discouraged if you don't see many here.

I am a full time property host-conceirge and reside just across the street so Im available anytime you need anything. I'm a 'people pleaser' and want you to have the best possible vacation experience possible.
I have 4 rentals located right next to one another if you are in need of additional accommodations for larger groups.

Other Than That You Will Have All The Privacy You Need And She Aims To Provide You With The Best Accommodations And Hosting Expertise Possible.

Notes:

Please read the house rules carefully. NO SMOKING INSIDE OR DIRECTLY OUTSIDE OF THE PROPERTY. You may go onto the street below but please pick up your cigarette butts and don't liter on the street. There are trash cans in the ally. NO CANDLES. Please make sure to list the exact number of total guests in your party (including children).

Deposits are 100% Refundable (assuming you don't steel or damage anything) after you check out. Accidents happen so if you notify me immediately the replacement costs may be minimal if discussed at the time of damage. However, if you wait until after you depart it may increase. In all my years of rentals I've only filed one small damage claim for one guest of $250.

* DISCLAIMER: USE OF SPORTING GOODS: PLEASE NOTE: By You (and all members of your party) agree to use the supplied sporting goods (surfboards, boogie boards, bicycles, skateboards, rollerblades, paddle tennis or any other sporting items) at your own risk and hold the owner, host and building manager 100% harmless against any injuries or death that might occur by the use of these items. If you do not know how to surf it is highly advised that you take a lesson from a certified surf instructor. Surfing is far more challenging than it looks. Please use caution when playing in the ocean. Enjoy but be Safe!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: I have 4 rentals right next door to one another and over 150+ positive reviews (on another website) and I just LOVE designing special places for people to relax, take their minds away, sleep well and have some fun! I'm a true 'people' person and have been renting out vacation rentals in my beachfront properties for years. I love to pamper my guests in any way possible. My rentals are turn-key with all the amenities you might desire. I'm the interior designer and Im into cleanliness, luxurious comfort, quiet and making others feel as warm and welcome as possible. My rentals are IMMACULATE, every nook and cranny is meticulously cleaned so expect something resembling a 5-star resort in that regards. I use top quality pillows and bedsheets because I LOVE a good nights sleep and Im finicky about things like this so I assume my guests are too. I'm an active, healthy, female in my 40's. I love to surf, hike and bike and am I'm originally from the Midwest, well-traveled and speak several languages. I'm a French-American and have spent the last 30 years of my life divided between California and France and LOVE people of all races and cultures. I'm a semi-retired, award winning pro photographer, author of 3 books, interior designer and a vacation rental host. Come and go as you please. I consider myself an awesome concierge so I'll definitely point you in the right direction for the best restaurants, where to get a pedicure or a massage, shopping, surf lessons and must-see locals spots. I want to make sure you feel ABSOLUTELY AT HOME and have all the ideal comforts one would want no matter how long you stay. This is a very unique and special place with a beautiful interior and lots of amenities so I am seeking respectful renters who honor and cherish it as much as I do.

Why the Owner Chose Venice Beach:
Comfort, peace and an ideal location - just steps to the beach with an ocean view and walking distance to restaurants bars and shops makes this a perfect place for families and friends a great spot for a private get away. The interior space is LARGE so plenty of room for you and your other guests to move around and have your own space. The marina peninsula beach community is unlike anyplace else in the world. People are genuinely happy so don't be surprised if someone smiles, says hello or stops to give you directions. That's just how we are here and you can walk, bike or skateboard to just any place. You don't really need a car. Just take a taxi or grab the bus when you need to.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The location of this apartment is by far THE most desirable neighborhood in all of Los Angeles. The building is charming, with only has 4 units so it feels more like a little house than an apartment. Most of my guests don't want to leave the marina penninsula. They just fall in love with everything you can see and do. We are planning on renovating the building a bit this spring and adding a patio area with a picnic table and BBQ for outdoor dining.
