Rest and recharge yourself at Glencoe Retreat! 03/27/2016

VRBO Bear stayed here:


From the gorgeous sunlight that flooded the bedroom to the lush greenery surrounding the property, the VRBO Bear felt right at home at this retreat. The quiet neighborhood is just biking distance to the party scene of Venice Beach, and our gracious hosts greeted us warmly, even with our late check-in. As we walked through the patio that separates the main house from the cottage in the back, we were mesmerized by the hanging lights, luxurious outdoor pizza oven and enchanting garden statues. They have captured the Venice aesthetic in their own back yard. The cottage itself is modern and spacious: high ceilings allow the light to fill the rooms and the clean lines of the furniture and appliances magnify the “zen” we felt as soon as arrived. But don’t let the minimalism fool you—the cottage amenities were above and beyond our expectations. One afternoon, we used the washer and dryer after a ride to the beach (bikes provided!); then enjoyed the cable TV so we could rest up for our next adventure. The Glencoe Retreat even boasts an outdoor soaking tub in the cottage’s private porch. The VRBO Bear visited great restaurants and bars in the surrounding areas (and is still dreaming of Abbott’s pizza, days later). In retrospect, we wished we spent more time at the cottage but its central location made it so easy to explore Venice and Santa Monica by bike and by foot. So whether you’re looking for a staycation or a homebase to explore West LA, Glencoe Retreat is a great place to recharge.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We are both in the film industry which brought us to beautiful state of California. I came from Canada 12 years ago and Stuebe from Chicago, 30 years ago. Given our lifestyles, we both ended up living in Venice which we love. We love getting on our bikes and cycling down to the beach/boardwalk or Abbot Kinney Boulevard where you are bound to run into someone you know. That is the beauty of Venice. When we are not working or looking after Glencoe Retreat, we love to hook up our Holiday House to our 64 Chevy and travel up the coast to enjoy the California coastline.

Why the Owner Chose Venice, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
We love the fact that the property is just far enough away from the beach where you will have quiet, serene nights without the noise of beach traffic. You will not have to fight to find parking and you can get on a bike to be at the beach in 10-15 minutes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The owners have an outdoor pizza oven that they are sure to start up when you stay! And the pizza is divine! There is also a charging station on the property for electric car users.
