Lots of space steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great! The listing said its 150 steps from the beach but I think it is actually closer than that. The house was clean and super friendly to groups as there were numerous sleeping options. The patio is also really nice and quiet. It is in a neighborhood and so if you go here, have a good time but keep the noise down. If you want to get a feel for what its like to live in a insanely cool city like Venice Beach, this is the house!

Wow! Wonderful space! Open and airy, and right near the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great choice! We wanted a little bit of LA beach scene on a recent California jaunt. With seven of us, hotels are a tough. Casa de Tina was PERFECT! Lots of beds, plenty of everything in the kitchen and bathroom (and 3 full baths to boot). Plus a wonderful patio along the quiet pedestrian only walkway. We did take a very short walk and BAM! right to the beach. I hesitated to write such a great review because we plan to go back and I don't want it booked up!

Venice beach Rental

Outstanding owner matched with prime lication

  • 5 of 5

We found this property to be the perfect family beach house! 9 adults had plenty of elbow room and privacy while enjoying the quaint community feel and easy to walk to amenities! 150 steps to the sand! Something for everyone! Plenty of sleeping space, nicely decorated, convenient bar and sink, complete kitchen with every gadget wanted/needed, and the most kind, responsive owner on HomeAway! Thea, many thanks for your responses and accurate description of your beach rental! Plenty of parking space for our 12-passenger van! Simply stated, a perfect beach getaway! We celebrated with family our daughters university graduation. This property allowed an extended family stay under one roof, enjoy each other's presence without getting in each other's way! Definite recommend!
