About Gerald McKenna

Long time Venice resident now retired and living in Palm Springs.

I built this building in 1988 and remodeled it in 2007 and 2016

Gerald McKenna purchased this apartment in 1988

Why Gerald McKenna chose Los Angeles

Steps to the beach with cool breezes yet close to all the Los Angeles activities.

What makes this apartment unique

There are very few hotels in Venice and none are as close to the beach as this apartment. The apartment solves the car parking issue that is a problem at so many other beach rentals.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Gerald,

I just wanted to thank you for renting us your lovely Venice Beach condo last week. We couldn't have asked for a better location so close to the beach and great restaurants on Washington Blvd. We were able to have my youngest daughter (the one who lives in Culver City), and her boyfriend come over to enjoy a BBQ with us on the patio - something we couldn't have done in a hotel room! I will definitely recommend your place to others and look forward to staying there again.

Great Venice Beach rental!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I rented this wonderful apartment for (5) nights the first week of October. Not only was it clean and well appointed, but it was just two minutes to the beach. It was great to have a garage as well as a walled courtyard off our living room and bedroom. This was a perfect home base and every evening was wonderfully cool with a breeze from the ocean. Having a washer and dryer is key as you do not have to pack as many clothes, there was even an iron and ironing board, really everything you could possibly want. The owner was readily available to answer any questions and was always very nice and polite. We cannot wait to come back to continue our exploration of the LA area.

Charming & Private

  • 5 of 5

Was exactly as it was advertised. Location was perfect very close to beach, Restaurants & Venice Pier. Private patio was very nice. Had a little Key issue for the gate I called Gerald He picked up right away. Called Gerald for bicycle lock combo picked up right away. Bed was comfortable but low to floor. Kitchen had pots,pans coffee pot wine glasses we cooked breakfast. Had nice floor Fans & window air conditioner. Keeped french doors opened when we were there. Would have been nice if windows opened for better breeze. Bathroom & Shower was a high tub unit. Washer & Dryer was a plus. Three of us stayed there me, my husband & 18 year old son some restaurants have Happy Hour and don't let under 21 in. Fun restaurant for dinner was C & O Trattoria. Thanks for a wonderful Stay Gerald. I would recommend your apartment for 2 or 3 people.

Perfect Venice apartment

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place for me and my two daughters (5 and 9). The space was just right and we appreciated the big patio and quiet alley leading to the beach. The closeness of the Cow's End Cafe on Washington Blvd was also a bonus.

No surprises, exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

We spent five nights here in May and it was perfect. I think it is helpful when people point out negatives, but I can't think of any. The unit is well stocked, clean and in a great location.

Car: not necessary

This apartment has everything you need for a relaxing beach vacation. You will be on a quiet pedestrian street in a great part of Venice, yet in just a few minutes you can walk to Muscle Beach and see all the bohemian glory of Venice Beach. Walk two minutes inland and enjoy the serenity of the Venice Canals. Free parking for two standard cars - a rare commodity in this area! When you are relaxed out, a 30 minute drive will take you to Hollywood and all of the hottest clubs in the country. A farmers market is held every Saturday morning nearby, great for spotting celebrity Venice residents and getting great food.

Other Activities: boating, biking, racquetball, basketball, volleyball, weightlifting, shopping
