Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house. It was small but perfectly set up. We all remarked throughout the week how well Don has organized the house. Everything is labeled, and there are lots of comforts you forget you will need. Of course, the location cannot be beat--we walked everywhere and ate a lot of times on and around Abbot Kinney (and of course visited the beach and boardwalk a bunch!). The garage was supremely helpful as well and also set up beautifully (there is an automatic opener and a locked door into the house from the garage). We stayed with our 2 grown boys who both live in LA and could come and go with their cars easily. We all loved the TV area and the yard as a gathering spot and found the whole experience exceptional. We knew from reading the reviews that Don was professional, and the house and everyone we interacted with revealed that this was absolutely true. Amazing experience!

Owner's Response: Thanks Amy. I've heard this before, but never put so eloquently and concisely. I'm impressed with your guest review to the point that I've moved it into top position so it will be the first guest review read by prospective vacationers. In fairness, I do feel you overrated the garage (the garage is small and cars must be backed into it carefully). Aside from that, you made it sound like a fabulous place for a vacation. In fairness (and proudness) I feel the same way you do. Thanks again. Don

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was my 6th visit to one of Don's properties and my first to the Charlie Chaplin house. Don's recognizable attention to detail was everywhere. From the lovely outdoor area/seating choices and grill to the wonderfully spacious living area and well appointed kitchen, ceiling fans, closets full of towels, blankets and even space heaters, nothing was overlooked. Lively neighborhood where the street noise dissipated upon entering the enclosed patio oasis and the comfortable beds awaited.

Great location and ambience, this is another of Don's properties that feels very hand touched and cared for, resulting in a warm feeling of home away from home.

Cute Cottage, Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time staying with our family of 4 in this lovely cottage. The location can't be beat - right off Abbott Kinney Blvd. Great food and shopping are steps away. Venice Beach is also only a few blocks away.

The house itself had everything we needed. The bedrooms are tiny but the beds are comfortable. The courtyard was an oasis from our busy schedule. Because of the busy location, it is loud and the garbage trucks come every morning around 6am so if you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs. Also, to take advantage of the parking space and/or garage that comes with the house, it would be best not to have a large vehicle.

Don is a great host - very attentive to any questions and concerns. We wouldn't hesitate to book Charlie Chaplin's Old House again!

That speaks volumes for the bottom line and I do hope you come back again and make it soon. Don

Private comfortable welcoming cottage just off Abbott Kinney

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 10-day stay in Venice at the Charlie Chaplin House. It offered us everything we wanted with 2 comfortable bedrooms, ample living space, fully equipped kitchen, a lovely shower, laundry machines, and private garden all to ourselves. The WIFI access was reliable, allowing me to work from the cottage. Don, the owner, was attentive yet unobtrusive and provided great information before and during our visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you Susan for an on point vacation rental review. I think you summed it up nicely. I hope you can come back for a return visit soon. Don't forget the "repeat offender" discount if you do. Don

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks, Don. What a great place! The inside was immaculate and cozy and I loved the kitchen. The patio and pond made me feel like I was on a tropical island and then I walked out the gate and I was on Abbot Kinney Boulevard. It was amazing and everything was perfect. I can't wait to come back. Evelyn, Ontario, Canada
