About the property

Bedrooms 1, Bathrooms 1, Sleeps 2

Cactus Flower is a one-bedroom, one bathroom contemporary style guest house designed from the ground up as a sustainable luxury guest building with 100% solar electric power and solar-thermal hot water systems.

Situated within a lushly landscaped private compound this vacation rental home features a large private desert garden patio with state-of-the-art, luxury amenities like a wood-burning outdoor fireplace, solar powered hydronic floor heating, fully equipped kitchen with reverse osmosis water filtration, BOSCH washer and dryer, mid-century design furniture in the living room, and a solid walnut bed in the bedroom, with a high-end Organic Latex Mattress, and organic cotton towels and linens.

The property is hidden at the end of a quiet, safe, residential cul-de-sac 8 blocks from the beach and just one block from Santa Monica. Whole Foods Market on Rose Avenue, and Abbot Kinney Boulevard with some of the hippest restaurants and bars in Los Angeles is just a few blocks away. The beach is just a 5-minute bike ride away.

As with all our homes at Cactus Flower we use only non-toxic cleaners.

Maximum occupancy is 3 guests.

Weekly housekeeping service is included for rentals of 7 nights or more.

One week minimum. We may consider stays under a week that are adjacent to existing bookings.

Cactus Flower -Venice

  • 5 of 5

The property perfectly matched the photos. We enjoyed our stay here. Location was excellent. We walked from house down Rose Ave to Venice beach and Santa Monica Pier. Round trip 6.3 miles of gorgeous views and interesting shops and restaurants.

Convenient car access to sightseeing within L.A.

We did need fans the last two nights as it was unseasonably warm without A/C, but this did not detract from an overall 5-star experience. We will definitely return to one of your properties for our next trip!

Threepeat!

  • 5 of 5

Well, this was the third visit for me and as enjoyable as the first and second. Maybe even better since I now know the neighborhood very well - I think the locals think I'm a local! Just the perfect indoor/outdoor Cali experience with great style and aesthetics. Size is more than adequate. And a pleasure to deal with anyone concerned with managing this property.

Gorgeous property

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for two people (willing to take care while) staying in this lovely home and desert garden. We were there to help our daughter with a new baby and this was a perfect respite

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Would stay here again. Beautiful place. Backyard and landscaping is amazing bed is comfortable. My only complaint is the walls are very thin and we could hear people talking and moving around and playing music from the other unit that is attached to this house. Centrally located and close to where we wanted to be.

Modern Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We regularly visit LA/Venice each year and prefer to enjoy the area as if we were "residents." The place is fully equipped with everything one would need as opposed to a hotel environment. The residence is impeccably clean and exceptionally maintained. Suitable for those who enjoy well-designed quality surroundings and are very careful and attentive in regards to respecting the property and not damaging any of the items within its premises.

Not a place for slobs or those who are reckless!
