Recent Venice Beach reviews

  • Good location, great shower!

    "Ideally located if you want to explore Santa Monica, Venice, & Marina del Rey. You could do it all on a bike, as we did. Rent from J's Rental on the boardwalk, ask for a weekly price, and you could even cab it to and from the airport thereby eliminating the need for a car. It's a 3-minute walk to the beach and 5 to central Abbott Kinney Blvd. The outside shower is great! The caretaker went out of her way to get us an air mattress for the kids. My only gripes: we pay a cleaning fee and are asked to take out the trash at the end of our stay?! It took the owner 19 days to process our refund when we were told it would come 2 days after we checked out."

  • Photos Don't Tell the Whole Story

    "My small construction crew stayed here while working o a project in Santa Monica. There is adequate parking for 2 vehicles as well as on-street parking within a block or two. The front yard is an oasis of green and cool ocean air from which we enjoyed in the evenings while watching party-goers and beach-combers walk past on the sidewalk/tree-lined alley way that fronts the home. The location is one block from beach and a few blocks from Main Street and Abbot Kinney where you'll find scores of amazing places to eat and shop. The house is a lesson in art history and period construction/decor. You can spend an entire evening there just admiring Tina's art collection and enjoying how every little detail is accounted for. This house is hands down the best value around Venice and should really be kept a secret..."

  • 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"

  • Fantastic Holiday!

    "We stayed at the guesthouse for a week and we enjoyed our stay so much that we didn't want to leave! From the very beginning communication from the owners was excellent, they were very quick at responding to emails answering any questions. They also provided us with good directions etc before we arrived! When we arrived at the guesthouse, the owners and their family made us feel very welcome. We were shown around and provided with all the information about the guesthouse, facilities and location. The guesthouse was very clean, fantastically furnished and had everything we could possibly need during our stay - we were very happy with the standard of the accommodation. The owners also allowed us use of their BBQ & firepit in the garden area which was much appreciated as we spent a few evenings sat out enjoying the beautiful surroundings. The guesthouse is situated in a very nice quiet neighbourhood, only a 5 minute drive from the beach, shops, restaurants etc. There are free bikes available to use which we used as our main transport as it's such a convenient hassle free way to get around, it only takes around 10 minutes to cycle to the beach and it saves on any parking issues. There is also the use of boogie boards, footballs etc available to use which we felt was a nice touch. The wifi also worked perfectly and we had no problems whatsoever with Internet connection during our stay. I would definitely recommend this guesthouse to friends and family, we had a brilliant holiday. I really hope someday to return!!! Michael & Stephanie"
