Car: Recommended

Venice Beach is one of the most visited attractions in California. Great people watching and beach front bike path that goes on for miles. Plenty of great restaurants and shopping on Abbot Kinney and in nearby Santa Monica. Easy access to all of Los Angeles.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I'm a native NYer who lives bi-coastally. I love the house - in fact, I built it to be my dream home. I do get to spend a lot of time there - it is my primary residence - so the house is well taken care of. I have heard such good things about the people who are on VRBO that I thought I would give it a shot!

Why the Owner Chose Venice Beach:
I have been in love with the Venice Canals neighborhood since I lived there with a friend in the 80s. When a lot came up for sale in 2000, I grabbed it and spent the next 2 years carefully building the perfect home. The neighborhood is amazing and fun and the people in the area are great. On weekends, I rarely use a car - I can walk or bike almost everywhere. Venice Beach and Marina Del Rey are a few minutes walk and it is so nice to grab a coffee and watch the waves come in early in the morning. It's just a beautiful neighborhood with a friendly and relaxed vibe. You will make new friends during your stay!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When I built the house, I wanted the feel and look of comfortable old houses I had visited in the South of France and Italy. The wood shutters, high ceilings, heated marble floors and comfy, squishy furniture make it so welcoming. I love to cook and the kitchen is built for a pro. It's definitely a home - and looking out on the water while I sip a glass of wine at night is priceless.
