THIS ONE BOOKS QUICKLY- USE CREDIT CARD TO RESERVE DATES

ADORABLE Fully furnished Cape Cod Beach Cottage with the cutest beachy vibe, located on a street behind Grand Canal waterway in Venice and 1 Block to the Beach and Venice Boardwalk; one of the best 'secret' neighborhoods in LA- This cottage is steps from the canal but not right on the water. A larger cottage (also for rent on VRBO) is RIGHT on the water. Take a look at it before you decide which one to rent. The larger cottage can be found by putting 725388 in VRBO's search window above. This smaller cottage (233542) is an adorable studio with all 4 sleeping in the same room. The other larger cottage (725388) is a one bedroom that sleeps 6 but it's also wonderful for a smaller group. Be sure to take a good look at both cottages before you decide which one to book! They are decorated very similarly. The smaller cottage is a very good value for a total of 4 people, though it's not right on the water. The larger cottage costs more but is also worth every penny if you want that unbelievable ambiance of being right on the water. Both have full kitchens and both come with use of bikes, boats, laundry, and a shared BBQ area.

You can walk or bike everywhere, (but 2-car parking is included) as well as use of 2 bikes, shared boats, outdoor eating and BBQ area, brand new 32' LED HDTV with DVR + DVD player, phone + free nationwide & Canada calling, Hi-speed WiFi Internet, beach chairs, all utilities, linens and all kitchen utensils, plus a laundry room with washer & dryer. You seriously won't want to leave. Queen bed + Twin Daybed + Twin Bed trundle sleeps total of 4. One Mile to Santa Monica, 40 minutes to Disneyland, 15 minutes to Malibu, 14 mins to LAX, Great location! All furnishings brand new, beautiful, clean, light and bright. **Check out my reviews**

.......it really is as cute as I say it is!!

About Carol Hurwitz

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.

Carol Hurwitz purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Carol Hurwitz 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.

Venice Beach Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was absolute perfection for our 7 night stay.

The cottage has everything you could possibly ask for; full kitchen, full bath, mini dining table, comfy bed, large daybed that we used as a couch, laundry....it really has everything.

Our favourite part was the use of the cruiser bikes, though. They were so great to have. We would ride to Santa Monica Pier (15 minute pedal from the front door), lock up the bikes at the pier and then use the overhead walkway to cross the PCH to go wander around the shopping district in Santa Monica. It was heaven.

The only time we really used our car rental was to go do a grocery shop at an actual supermarket and that was only a 5-10 minute drive.

Otherwise everything else you would want is just steps outside the cottage door (okay, maybe not steps...but literally only a few blocks).

Carol was very helpful upon our arrival and it was so appreciated.

We will absolutely be booking again next year!

Beautiful Venice Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We are already planning our return visit! The charming cottage was as pictured and in walking distance of everything. Only a 10 minute, no freeway drive from the offsite LAX auto rental location. Our host's instructions and recommendations for area restaurants and attractions were spot on. Walked to the craziness of the Venice boardwalk and Muscle beach; but enjoyed the quieter scene of the Venice canals, St James beach and Washington Boulevard. Santa Monica was a 6 minute drive. Fabulous stay.

Perfect getaway...

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i were looking for a getaway trip to celebrate our 29th anniversary. This was perfect, close to everything and the perfect size for the two of us. My only regret was that we ran out of time and didn't get to ride the bikes down the beach or take the canoe out in the canals. Maybe next time.

Owner's Response: Yes, be sure to book again and maybe next time stay in the larger cottage and stay longer!! Glad you enjoyed it though.

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.
