About Patricia Skipwith

International couple very much in love. He is an avid sailor from Switzerland have been living in California for the last 30 years, she is a psychologist from Bolivia that speaks 4 languages perfect. We love the area, and we have put more time into the inside remodel than the outside. We love to travel around the world, so we know what you miss and need when you are not in your own home. Working on the outside of the house now. We live near by!

Patricia Skipwith purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Patricia Skipwith chose Venice

This property was perfect just far enough away from the beach that we don't have the beach traffic, right next to the Marina. In a nice neighborhood and in proximity to great restaurants.

Spacious area in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The loft had everything we needed and was very comfortable and private. Walking distance from Abbott Kinney, the Marina, and Venice pier. Street parking was easy to find. Couldn't have asked for a better stay!

This listing is scam.

  • 1 of 5

The door lock password that home owner provide us with was not matching. We were not able to get inside of the house. We were trying to reach owner but get no respond at all. When we called the company Home Away they just don’t want to take any further actions. We end up staying in a last minute hotel for mad amount of money. I wouldn’t use Home Away again. No security, no customer protection.

Owner's Response: Hello Tetiana: it is very odd that in 8 years that we have been renting our loft the Password to the lock box did not work. Also the House next to the loft is our home and we were at the premises all the time. I did not get any call or sms from you. When I talked to the management of VRBO they told me you contacted them on Sunday which was your checkout day and not on Friday, the day you should arrive, that is why VRBO did not fully refund you.

Close to everything and quiet

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights while attending a wedding for a friend. It was perfect. In walking distance to Abbot Kinney, Firestone Walker and bike ride away to the beach. We would love to stay here again.

Needs a fresh coat of paint but great location!

  • 3 of 5

Great location and very nice space! Plenty of room for two people and was very private. The house was a little funkier than I thought it was going to be and there were a couple things that clearly hadn’t been cleaned well, one of which was the comforter on the bed as it had obvious stains on it. We also didn’t bring a lick of food into the home but my suitcase ended up getting completely infested with ants. Like I said overall a very nice space and worked well for us mainly due to the location and us rarely being there but probably would not stay again.
