Our house on Brooks is the ideal location to experience all Venice has to offer. A short two block walk to the bustling Abbott Kinney Blvd, five blocks to the famous Venice Beach boardwalk and a 5 minute walk to the new super-hip shops, cafes and restaurants on Rose Avenue.
The tranquil bedrooms each have high ceilings and a queen size bed made with high thread count linens. There’s also a sleep sofa in the living room. The bathroom has a humongous claw-foot tub you'll love. Since our house is newly remodeled it is highly insulated and very quiet inside.
We have a 45” flat screen TV equipped with FIOS cable as well as a DVR, DVD Player, Hi-speed WiFi and an Apple TV box loaded with Netflix. There's also a gorgeous antique piano for you musicians to play!
The kitchen is fully stocked with a professional restaurant stove, all glass, dish and silverware, dishwasher, pots and pans as well any appliance you would need to cook (blender, food processor, hand mixer, microwave, coffee maker, toaster).
The enchanted yard is the perfect place for a festive, daytime barbeque or a romantic, candlelit dinner. Even our summer nights can get a little chilly so we have a restaurant quality heat lamp to keep you warm outside.
There’s so much to do in Venice during the day- The beach, play tennis, cycle on the boardwalk, take a stroll on Abbott Kinney, take a yoga class! We provide beach towels and chairs, boogie boards, beach cruiser bikes (no additional charge). Let us know if there’s something else you need and we’ll do our best to provide it. A crib? A stroller? Yoga mats? Just let us know how we can help make your Venice vacation awesome.

They say 'Nobody walks in LA,' but we walk or ride bikes everywhere. Five blocks (ten minute walk) to the famous Venice Beach Boardwalk, two blocks to Abbot Kinney boulevard ('The Coolest Block in America' according to GQ magazine) and five minute walk to the newest collection of restaurants and shops on Rose Avenue. There's also an mind-blowing Whole Foods Market on Rose with a wide variety of prepared foods and a hot food bar and juice bar.
We're also a short bus ride or 7 minute drive to Downtown Santa Monica and the Third Street Promenade. And for more fun, we're 13 miles to Hollywood and Vine and 16 miles to Downtown LA.
Coming and going, we have easy access to LAX International Airport (15 to 20 minute drive depending on traffic).

About the owner: We are Molly, Alan and Shepard Renshaw with Baby Girl Renshaw coming in June! We have loved living and raising our son in this house but needed a little more space for our growing family so we've moved to a three bedroom house.
We are both Los Angeles natives which seems to be rare! Molly grew up in the Valley in Toluca Lake where her family still lives, while Alan spent his childhood in Santa Monica Canyon.
Molly went to Skidmore College in upstate NY and lived in NYC as a modern dancer and Pilates teacher for 10 years after that. Alan went to Reed College in Oregon before graduating from UC Berkeley. He is a computer consultant, builder, landlord and painter.
We are both passionate animal lovers, cooks, artists and parents. We're thrilled to share our beloved home with you.
Why the Owner Chose Venice Beach: Location location location! You can't beat it - such an easy walk to Abbot Kinney, Rose Ave, the beach as well a giant Whole Foods Market. It's such a cool, quirky gem of a house in such a great neighborhood. Venice is so special with its diverse population and the combination of beach town and hip urban mecca.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Alan bought the house in 2000 and completely remodeled it himself in 2007 keeping the charm and feel of the original structure (like the original hardwood floors). Instead of a bunch of tiny, low ceiling rooms, he made an airy, open floor plan. He raised the ceilings 5 feet, put in a brand new kitchen and cool architectural quirks to make the house very unique, like sky lights, asymmetrical windows and the best claw-foot bathtub ever!
The property is unique because from the street it looks like nothing but behind the fortress walls is a private, bamboo lined, hidden oasis. It's very cozy and quiet at night despite the bustling neighborhood. However, on Sunday mornings if you open the front door and windows, as an added perk you’ll hear the beautiful gospel choir belting out hymns from the Baptist church across the street. You’ll also get an energetic sermon from Pastor Davis for free!
