Thanks for checking out THE ART COLONY at Venice Beach -- your best value this close to the sand!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2001

About: We relocated from NYC to SoCal in June, 2000. Our main reason for moving? The WEATHER! We love to hear the weather reports from the East Coast. Whatever it is back east, we're having better weather here :) Not only is LA beautiful, it has an abundance of culture: world-class museums, great live theatre featuring the best Hollywood actors, shopping, fine dining and more. What I like best about Los Angeles is that it has the most ethnically diverse population on the planet.

Why Venice, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
The west side of Los Angeles is the most desirable area, and you can't get much farther west than 1/2 block from famous Venice Beach. We love this area for the eclectic mix of people, the wonderful sea air and the fun, carnival atmosphere of the boardwalk. The walkstreets of Venice provide a tranquil getaway from the fun mayhem, just steps away! Just two blocks to the east is trendy Abbott Kinney Blvd, with wonderful restaurants and shops. Your timing might be right to catch a street fair or glimpse a celebrity! Enjoy the decor and art we've chosen for the unit. We have a large and varied selection of DVDs, CDs and books for your pleasure.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Most people stay with us for our wonderful location, location, location! Open the doors to the two spacious decks and the ocean breeze flows through the entire apartment. Guests love the decor and art, love the quality of the space and love stepping out our front door and onto wonderful Venice Beach.
