Joanne purchased this Townhome in 1967
Why Joanne chose Venice
The house is a pretty Calif. bungalow built in 1905's and has been remodeled to keep the charm of the turn of the century. It's like walking into the past with the convienence of the 21 century.The location is ideal; walking distance to all that is offered on Santa Monica's/Venice beach area N. (including the Recreation Pier + still walking distance to Venice's rec.beach S.area yet far enough away from Venice rec park to be a quieter neighborhood. There are buses with in a block and we furnish bikes.We are situated near so many great restaurants. We furnish a lot of extras to our guests in the way of athletic equip. toys and games. I knew this would also be an ideal location for people on vacation. The weather is always good, not too hot and rarely cold (for me cold is under 72 degrees,) One guest, a professor suggested a walk in the morning and at sundown because the negative ions that come off the ocean are very healthy for us.
What makes this Townhome unique
This turn of the century house has high10' celings and built in cabinets. The large moldings was just one of the reasons; I wanted to be close enough to walk home from the beach for lunch or nap time when the kids where small. The weather is the best (about 75 degrees most of the year warmer May-thru Aug). However it has been in the 80's this October. There isn't the bugs problem the tropics have. Cultural and artistic developement are everywhere. I love walking to the corner and having the beach there and still having access to a big city and culture with all that is offered here in LA. I really enjoy having the ocean breeze coming in and the sun shining. I love skating at sunset, and biking up and down the coast. One can have their whole experience without a car. Abbot Kinney has unique shops that are not chains stores with the some old stuff., New train by the Santa Monica peir to take you downtown L.A. for the Cathedral, Disney Music Hall, Alavera Street, and musceums. For the athlete we have bikes, boogie boards,skim and surf board,balls(basket,volly,foot,tennis,paddle tennis,socker(all equip for your use here and on the beach). You can parasail over the ocean. You can even go on line and reserve surf lessons or paddle boarding.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Charming with a fabulous location
Great location. Just a block from the beach or some fabulous shops and restaurants. House was nicely stocked with everything you could need. House has a nice outdoor space for sitting and drinking coffee or wine. The owner had bikes available for us to use which was so much fun to ride on the boardwalk. The owner also very responsive to any and all questions we had and made sure that our arrival was easy. Our Familiy of 5 found this a great home base for our California adventure. Would absolutely stay/rent with her again. Peace!
Great location, wonderful host
We had a great trip. The children were so happy being so close to the beach. The Host made everything easy for us. What a perfect location to spend a holiday
very clean and comfortable spot in a super location
we were four adults staying in the unit for a week. the space is clean, a nice amount of room for four adults, and really well appointed with everything you need. adequate space to cook (indoors or our), comfortable bathroom, and all modern amenities functioning well. the location is ideal if you want to be close to the excitement of Venice. you can't get closer to the beach. good restaurants are extremely close and easily within walking distance. the owner was supportive and helpful.
Beautiful home with everything
There is no better location on Venice Beach,CA. It has everything you need inside and out including bikes, towels, chairs, boogie boards, umbrella & even a wagon to carry it all. A major plus is that it has it’s own parking space which is huge on the beach. Joanne was a wonderful and very helpful host. She even had muffins with fruit ready for us with a welcome packet. We highly recommend staying here. We had an amazing trip.
Thank you so much for such a great review, we loved having you and would welcome you back. Since we are so close to the beach and bike path it is easy to get around. And having the gym a block away and many restaurants within a block it's easy to kick back or play hard.
Charming little rental for the family.
Joanne was great. Our plane arrived before our check in. She allowed us to come early. Joanne greeted us with a smile. Showed us everything about the rental and the Venice area. There were plenty of bikes and buggie boards for the four of us. We enjoyed walking the area and the beach. I felt safe allowing my 16 year old and her friend walk the area. We had a late flight out at the end of our stay. Joanne offered to let us stay and enjoy the rental a few more hours. Which was amazing. That never happens at a hotel. If we ever come back to the Venice area we will be back for sure.
They where a lovely family and since no one was coming in the day they left it was easy to invite them to stay a little longer.
Venice is a special place and we like our guest to have a good time here, that's why we furnish so much sports and beach
Lovely host. Very friendly and helpful. House is very cosy and close to the action of Venice.
Joanne welcomed us with open arms, a fridge full of food and fresh flowers in the house. She was very accommodating with our early arrival following a 15 hr flight, allowing us to check in early to recover. Joanne even drove us to the local supermarket for extra food supplies which was really appreciated.
The house was perfect for us and our three kids. A lovely home to come home to at the end of the day. Plenty of board games, balls, boogie boards and bikes to keep us all entertained and great location.
