Venice Beach bungalow description

We look forward to welcoming you to the Orchid Bungalow on the tranquil Venice Canals!
This is theee very best place to stay on the Westside…but shhhh as we don't want the word to get out!

A block & half walk to Venice Beach, Venice Boardwalk, Venice Pier & Abbot Kinney Blvd.
This is an original bungalow built in 1950 yet renovated extensively with all the comforts of modern conveniences.

Situated on what 'they' say is the most beautiful canal due to its mature trees, the house is tucked in between a large Chinese Maple & Eucalyptus, almost @ a 'T' view where the canal connects with Eastern Canal.
Other than the occasional duck fight, you will sleep uber peacefully at night as there is no through traffic.

French doors open out onto your private stone deck & the quiet canal, while a side dutch entry door adds to the open airy feeling. The apartment is the self-contained canal front unit of a duplex.

A full kitchen looks out onto the canals with a dishwasher, washer/dryer, gas stove, garbage disposal & roomy fridge with ice maker. Windows open onto deck for ease in passing food or drinks if entertaining.

High speed power boost wi-fi enables you to work outside on your laptop whilst lounging on the sexy deck with built-in opium bed podium. Ample cushions are provided for the true lounging / working / snuggling experience!

Sleeping arrangements:
Bedroom has a large very comfortable Calif. King bed with tufted headboard, forced A/C & Heater unit & skylight with shutter for darkness.
Small futon in bedroom suitable for a child, can be used as small sofa or large ottoman.

Full futon in living room becomes chaise or comfy full bed with memory foam topper and easily clicks back into sofa for day (suitable for 1-2 adults depending on size or 2 children).

Skylight in recently renovated marble bathroom gives great day light throughout.

Comes with one dedicated parking spot...very important on the canals!
(As the Canals themselves are unfenced, parents may wish to consider if bringing small walking children.)

All gates lock to provide security & the boat dock from which to dangle your feet completes the experience!

A magical rejuvenating space. ;-)

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Our Bungalow is located on what is left of the canals Mr. Abbot Kinney created when he built Venice in the early 1900s.

                  When the city acquired Venice in 1933 the canals had fallen into disarray & all of the canals were filled in save for the 6 that remain here today. In 1990 the entire canal area was beautifully renovated and is now one of the most valuable areas in LA County.

                  We are an easy walk to Abbott Kinney blvd. fabulous restaurants & shopping, the beautiful Venice Pier, and the crazy Venice Boardwalk with all of its famous street performers, etc.

                  Bike rentals are close by and we are 10 minutes to LAX, right off Venice Blvd. with ease to Beverly HIlls, Hollywood & downtown LA.

                  You can walk or bike most anywhere for whatever you may need~ store, bank, dry cleaners, etc..

                  So close to all but so far from the maddening crowds...a true sanctuary when you need one from busy LA while either working or sightseeing.

                  Important note for visitors not from the area: There is a big difference between places actually on the canals versus on Venice Beach & the walk streets proper or off Abbot Kinney Blvd. The canals is a small self-contained area with limited car access which creates a noise buffer & makes it more difficult for the general craziness of Venice to intrude. Hence the price difference from other rentals that are grouped together here. The vacation renter is highly advised to run a quick safety check on the area in which they are renting...

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  Why the Owner Chose Venice Beach:
                  You cannot be anywhere quieter & more beautiful and still be soo close to the beach & a happening scene. period. :-)

                  The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                  Our deck provides an amazingly rejuvenating view of the canals along with cushions for comfort and relative privacy due to its slight elevation.
