An incredibly tranquil setting, 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. This unit has one full bedroom.
Sleeping arrangements: Bedroom has a large very comfortable Calif. King bed with tufted headboard, forced A/C & Heater unit & skylight with shutter for darkness. Tiny Futon suitable for a small child. 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!
Not even on the deck. No smoking of cigarettes or cigars anywhere on the property premises or full security deposit will be forfeited...sorry!...moreless
Pets Not Allowed:
Animals not allowed or considered. No matter how small & perfectly behaved your furless, bark-free little friend is or how big of a deposit you kindly offer, please, even though we love them, we can't accept pets due to other guest's allergies. ^..^...moreless
There is an enormous Ca King bed in the bedroom.
In the living room there is a convertible futon/couch/chaise with memory foam topper that would be comfortable for 1-2 adults or 2 children.

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 Abbot Kinney Blvd. which is becoming trendier by the day with it's fabulous restaurants & shopping. Easy walks to the beautiful Venice Pier and 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 from busy L.A. after working or sightseeing.
Important note for visitors not from the area: There is a big difference between places actually on the canals vs. Venice Beach, the walk streets or off Abbot Kinney Blvd. which we call 'the hood'.
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 Venice rentals that may be grouped together here. We have tried to alert VRBO as to the vast differences in the neighborhoods in the Venice area but their logarithm can only discern so much... The vacation renter is highly advised to run a quick safety check on the area in which they are renting. If you want to stay on the canals, check carefully that the listing is actually on one of the Canals: Eastern, Grand, Howland, Sherman, Linnie or Carroll Canals or the east side of Strongs Dr.
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.
