You’ll have the wind in your sails at this gloriously modern, three-storey vessel of a home, just blocks from Venice Beach. Its indoor hold and outdoor decks mean that you can harness the elements in fair weather or batten down the shutters if there’s a storm to weather. And floating between old and new Venice, there's some adventure to be had at every anchorage. Shop, dine, people-watch, or simply cruise along with the hipsters. When you’re ready to return, just make for the tallest home on the street.
Capitaines de la Marine
Your host and hostess navigate the worlds of business and event planning. One hails from France, the other is a California native. They enjoy sailing and travelling, but when they’re at home they most love walking with their two salty sea dogs.
Port of call
With a fleet of technological luxuries like the centrally controlled temperature and speaker system or the remote-controlled curtains, you can be assured of plain sailing here. But don’t forsake your best friend: when you open the windows and French doors, the ocean air breezes through these spacious rooms. Entering on the bottom level, an open-plan living room and dining room convene port side. Sail up the floating staircase to the second level, where smooth timber flooring takes over. Starboard you'll find a charming fireplace lounge and balcony access. The luxuriant guest berthing with king bed and full oceanic guest bathroom are here as well. Climb to the top of the mast and the enchanting master bedroom with its bright ensuite.
Balcony access off the bathroom keeps things from getting too steamy, even when it's high tide in the freestanding tub or double-headed shower. And out through the other side, an Astroturf deck provides outdoor seating and a fire pit to spin your sailors yarns around. One last flight up is the enchanting master stateroom with ensuite bath. Rest ashore in the plush king bed, amid forested wallpaper, thick shag rug, and fireside nook. Balcony access off the bathroom keeps things from getting too steamy, even when it's high tide in the freestanding tub or double-headed shower. Through the other side of the master, a majestic Astroturf deck provides outdoor seating and fire pit to send you overboard into relaxation.

Long ago – after the resort crowd found a comparatively happier place on earth in Anaheim, and oil tycoons drank up fossilized riches for decades – the artists came to Venice, eschewing posher Santa Monica above, Mar Vista aside and affluent Marina Del Rey below.
Their needs were minimal, their possessions few… but their creativity quickly took root in the salty sea breeze. They created the pedestrian-only Ocean Front Walk promenade, equal parts seaside and sideshow. The main drag – Abbot Kinney (named after the city’s co-founder) – became thick with specialty curio shops like Tony’s, cafés like sandwich staple Abbot’s Habit and local watering holes like The Brig.
And then a funny thing happened. Ideas, it turns out, are quite valuable to those who need them. Soon the artists found themselves in demand and their city prosperous, beckoning artists of other trades – designers, chefs, decorators, and mixologists – to organically integrate their own ideas alongside Venice’s historic canals and coffeehouses, embracing new yet preserving old.
Today’s Venice is an eclectic mix, a patchwork playground where vestiges of its counter-culture days proudly neighbour hip new entries, such as city-wide brunch and brick-oven pizza destination Gjelina and Mediterranean-inspired tapas at Primitivo Wine Bistro. While antique shops like Firefly and The Perfect Piece remind us that what’s old can still be new again. And it remains a place for artists, vintage yet modern, serving draft beers alongside handcrafted cocktails, for barefoot hippies and mustachioed hipsters alike
