About Kristin Jones

I live in the neighborhood and own a few other rental properties in Venice. I bought this classic Beach Bungalow in Venice and remodeled it from top to bottom, filled it with designer furnishings and had no vacancies! I tried to produce a space that people would feel happy in. Everything is new, clean, light and bright with a beachy vibe and cheerful feeling.

Kristin Jones purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Kristin Jones chose Los Angeles

Venice is an incredible California experience and the Venice Canals are the best Venice has to offer. You are one block from the beach and the Venice Boardwalk; walking distance to the Venice Pier and fabulous restaurants and boutiques in Venice and Marina Del Rey. This particular property is surrounded by multi-million dollar homes so that gives you a feeling of both security and pride of ownership in the neighborhood.

What makes this cottage unique

2 Beach Cruiser bikes + use of shared boats (red Canoe and Blue Row Boat) to use in the canals, beach chairs + towels, plus outdoor eating area with BBQ shared with other cottage. You can walk along the Venice Canals and go to breakfast at Joni's Coffee Roasters or Noah's Bagels or stop in at the corner Starbucks. It's a healthy lifestyle where you'll be encouraged to walk or bike wherever you go- like the weekly Farmer's market. Sunbathing, Sailing, Biking, roller-blading, surfing, gallery hoping, shopping, celebrity watching, you name it, we've got it here in Venice. Public transportation is just 1/2 block away. It's a very peaceful neighborhood but all the action of Venice is just minutes away. Check out the sunset every evening at the pier then go to the Baja Cantina for your after sunset margaritas- or Coldstones for ice cream, then walk home!! Or go to the 3rd street Promenade in Santa Monica and the brand new Santa Monica Place mall for movies, restaurants, and some of the best shopping in LA. Take your kids to the Santa Monica Fun Zone and Pier after a day at the beach, then eat at Bubba Gumps- a family friendly restaurant on the Pier. Do not miss a ride on the famous Carousel on the Pier, the very same one featured in many Hollywood movies including 'The Sting' starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford.

Great Apartment in Venice Beach

  • 4 of 5

5 minute walk to the beach and a great little apartment. It has everything that we needed and was immaculately clean. I would rent again!

Very nice and reasonably priced.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage worked well for my wife and son and I. We enjoyed the accessibility to the beach, and we took advantage of the bikes. The cottage was priced well below a local motel room with the added conveniences of appliances and modern laundry facilities.

Lovely, quiet, as pictured

  • 4 of 5

We had a terrific time at the cottage. It's a cozy space - I traveled with my 16-yo. Room enough for the two of us, but would have been tight for more. We didn't use the kitchen but it seemed workable and had everything one would need. Location was great. Close to the boardwalk and plenty of good eating.

Adorable beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 days here in February. The cottage is bright, clean, comfortable, and in a wonderful location close to beautiful and vibrant Venice beach! We loved walking along the quiet canals, and biking the Strand with the bikes provided. There are so many great restaurants in the neighborhood, plus markets to stock the kitchen if you don't want to eat out every day. Having the washer/dryer was really convenient, too.

We would definitely book this cottage again!

great location walk to venice beach

  • 5 of 5

This is an ideal getaway, with all the amenities that one would need for a little vacation in California. It was nice to have the bikes to go for a ride on the boardwalk, just a couple blocks away. It was surprisingly quiet and the bed was very comfortable. We walked to dinner, rode to Starbucks and was able to park the car right next to the house.

You are in the famous Venice Canal district so walk along the Canals on your way to breakfast at Joni's Coffee Roasters, Noah's Bagels or stop in at the corner Starbucks. This cottage in on the street that backs up to Grand Canal, it is not right on the water. There is a larger cottage also on this property that also rents out for vacations It can be accessed by putting 725388 in VRBO's search window above It's a healthy lifestyle where you'll be encouraged to walk or bike wherever you go and you have the use of 2 free bikes to do just that.

Take the bike path all the way from Venice to Malibu and stop in at the historic and award winning Santa Monica Pier, take a spin on the famous Carousel that appeared in 'The Sting' with Paul Newman and Robert Redford. Everywhere you look are landmarks and beautiful scenery. Nothing beats a drive up PCH at Sunset to hit any number of great restaurants in Malibu. Back in the Venice marina area try Stand-Up-Paddle Boarding at any number of local places that rent by the hour.
