  • Relaxed and stylish beach feel

    "Our family of 4 just had 5 nights in this gorgeous rental and loved everything about it. It has been newly renovated throughout and is incredibly clean, comfortable and stylish in a laidback, relaxed beach style. Spacious living areas and bedrooms, with access to a great outdoor area amongst a landscaped, native garden. The house has two full bedrooms with really comfortable beds and great linens and loads of extra blankets etc. There is a study (not a third bedroom) with a fold out futon-style mattress available that even my 11 year old would not sleep on ... so I don't think an adult would find it comfortable. A full kitchen with everything you need (including basic supplies), plus a washing machine and dryer (with laundry detergent supplied). Excellent location, only a 5 minute flat walk to Abbot Kinney Boulevard with funky restaurants, shops etc (head to Intelligentsia for great coffee) .... then another 5 minutes to the middle of Venice Beach. With a family, I felt more comfortable staying this distance from the beach and the colourful characters that inhabit it! We always found street parking out the front and enjoyed walking around the neighbourhood. The property managers made it very easy and met us at the house with the keys when we arrived from the airport, and when we were leaving. I would highly recommend this property and the photos on this website are 100% accurate. The map however needs to be adjusted as it is completely incorrect!"

  • Awesome beach house!

    "This house is elegantly designed but has the warmth of a cozy beach house. The views are excellent; the patio is very enjoyable, and you are right on the Strand!! Buckita is an outstanding, gracious host. She has provided everything one needs for a beach vacation. You have to rent this place. Everything is within walking distance. The entire family enjoyed it."

  • Fantastic Beach House

    "Our family stayed here and loved the accessibility of the beach, the strand, cute shops and restaurants. Bob and Donna were excellent to work with and made suggestions of things to do while we there and even went so far to mail back a personal item that we left behind. We'll definitely stay there again in the future."

  • Nice Place!

    "Hi Adrian. We just wanted to say thanks for letting us stay in The Art Colony Beach House! We had a great time revisiting Venice Beach, and staying in such a nice place so close to the beach helped make it so. The Art Colony apartment was a little big for just the two of us, as it has three bedrooms. However, this place would be great for several couples, families, or a small group of tourists, artists, what have you. The long kitchen counter is great, and the dining room table would make for a nice dinner gathering. We ate breakfast one morning on the rear balcony and enjoyed the large table back there as well. We enjoyed staying in an apartment that felt like an art studio. Although there is art on the walls, it still felt like a normal home. I liked staying in the master bedroom with the balcony off the front. It gives a lush and tropical feel while stepping onto it for some fresh, beach air. The attached garage made it convenient for us to jet off into the city for the day, or up the coast to Malibu for a scenic drive and seafood. We did use the fireplace on one cool, evening. This was cool to do while staying near the beach. We enjoyed the fire with some wine from a local place on nearby Rose Ave. I even browsed a few books in your interesting library. Good stuff. We did miss the full access to cable TV, but we found other great stuff to do. Thanks again for making such a great vacation place, and for offering it to us! See you soon. Have a good one. Mike & Chel"
