About DD

I used to rent across the walk street when I was in graduate school so fell in love with the walk street then and came back to buy a place as soon as I could. The area has only gotten better.

DD purchased this apartment in 1990

Why DD chose Venice

We love the walk streets of Venice because there are no cars driving past so its quiet in a way that is impossible on a regular street. And its one block to the sand and the Pacific Ocean.

What makes this apartment unique

Whole House Water Filtration System - even the plants drink well so you don't have to buy filtered water. Weekly cleaning by my cleaning person of 10 + years includes laundry of sheets and towels included in the price. It's immaculate. We like it that way. The front yard is gated and locked you don't have to chain bikes and surfboards. Just bring them in the gate. We like long term guests and have had people stay a year. The longer you stay the better your rate.

Wish I lived here!

  • 5 of 5

One block from the beach - One block from Abbott Kinney home of all the best restaurants and wine bars- I was in heaven! I rented for 2 and a half months. Its much better than the photos and accurate in description.

Owner has a great staff including weekly cleaning which was lovely. We (me and my dog) had a clogged kitchen sink one day that was unclogged by owner's plumber 4 hours later. btw several restaurants on Abbott Kinney let you have your dog at their outside tables. FAB!!

Warm, rustic, bungalowish--haven of peace!😊

  • 4 of 5

DD was a warm & gracious host/renter who was always quick to respond to any question or concern! I'd read a review about a concern over the comfort/firmness/support of the bed & when I thought I might be having a similar issue but mentioned it to DD she resolved it immediately! She did the same when I asked if she had a standard sized ironing board when the miniature, counter sized model wasn't working! She replaced it with a brand new one within days! You just simply need to communicate with her! She wants you to be comfortable in her home! The privacy & greenery of the courtyard was always wonderful to come home to and having a parking space in this area was a gift.....HOWEVER (lol).......the only problems I ever encountered were due to the carport/parking space!

As other reviewers wrote, be mindful of the vehicle you bring because it is one of the tightest spaces I have EVER had to maneuver around, especially if both spots are being used. I had an intermediate sized SUV to transport my dog & had to downsize in order to fit it into the carport next to another SUV & even that was tight! But that was the ONLY major challenge I had! Maria who comes every Monday, takes care of everything with such care & is a warm & lovely human being! The property location was my FAVORITE thing, though!!!! I love Abbott Kinney & the beach & having them so close was an absolute dream!! My dog is now a beach bum!!! Thank you DD for everything & I hope & look forward to coming back one day!! Namaste, lovely lady!

Love this place!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure to stay in this wonderful house during the month of December. We´re from Sweden and fled the dark winter there and replaced it with a long vacation in LA instead. The feeling when we arrived to the house was just amazing. Its such a magic place, a little green house, located in one of the walkstreets in venice, surrounded by green trees and plants makes it feel like stepping in to a fairytale. The house was perfect sized for us, a family with two kids (5+7 yrs) and since the front yard is fenced we felt safe and the kids could run around as they pleased. Five mins to the waterfront as well as to Abbot Kinney makes it perfect located. The house itself is very nicely decorated with top notch furniture and details, there is a LOVELY daybed in the glassed veranda and all appliances are really high quality. The garden has many seating-areas and a superb bbq grill. The whole house is made for relaxing and there are little traces of the hosts kindness everywhere, like welcoming flowers, beach towles etc. The host, Donna, is such a lovely lady and we fell in love with her immediately. She really made us feel welcome and so did the neighbors on the street (Especially Maureen!). I wish we could stay there forever, and I bet its even better in the summer when you can swim in the ocean and seek shade in the garden.. But we highly recommend this place all year around and hope to return again soon.

Loved our time in Venice!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. It is a great location, central to many of the surrounding cities such as Marina Del Rey, Santa Monica, Santa Barbara and Long Beach. Walking distance to the beach and the canals... Donna was wonderful, very friendly and extremely helpful. House was clean and well taken care of. We would definitely recommend this place and plan to return.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this place, the location, the house ( very clean) and Donna was just lovely and helpful and available for anything you might need. Couldn't beat the location, only a couple of blocks from the boardwalk, Abbot kinney, beach and skatepark. Venice beach is a fantastic place and we can't wait to return. We would definitely recommend donnas place and hope to come back and stay here next year.
