Hard to beat this experience of Venice beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had a near perfect trip to Venice Beach because of this home. The location is ideal. The bedrooms were comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with kitchenware. The patio in back was great for eating in the shade. The top deck was excellent for drinks in the sun with a bit of an ocean view. The only thing to consider is that if the weather isn't nice (which it usually is in CA) it will be difficult to eat inside with a large group since there wasn't a very big dining room table. Other than that, we'd highly recommend this beautiful home.

Great Rustic Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rustic, home-charm house in an amazing location tucked away, yet a minute from the beach and fishing pier. You can see the beach from the upstairs balcony sitting area.

The house is filled with antiques and full of old charm and interest. It would not be for those looking for clinical glitz, glass and stainless steel as you can see from the photos but it certainly was great for us. We loved it!

We hired bikes from the lovely Javier who dropped them off and picked them up (a recommendation from Virginia who lives next door and looks after the meet and greet etc) . Really nice chap. We recommend you hire bikes to cycle the front - an approx. 12.5 mile round-trip sea coast track for bikes and runners (and of course skate boarders!). Superb!

Restaurants are great too. Its worth walking away from the sea and checking out the ones that aren't so busy. We found a great Italian which was superb food. We can recommend the Canali Café - great Italian food.

We were warned about Venice Beach and the "characters" (down and outs) around by friends however we felt that this end was absolutely fine and safe. Some of the colourful characters are great to observe and help make the atmosphere. There was never any problem or worry - just a few giggles!

The beach is wide and safe and the body boarding great - better than Hawaii according to my 13 year old! There's no pleasing some :-)

So, a great home if you like rustic, relaxed living like us. There is garage parking too which we never picked up when booking which was very handy.

All in all a great holiday and we were sad to leave.

rented Old World Spanish home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home in early December 2011 and it was exquisite. It is a beautiful home with a great roof-top deck and very comfortable living space along with a nice backyard fire pit area. All the beds and bathrooms were in perfect shape and we had a magnificent time here. The furnishings were beautiful but all very comfortable and it felt very relaxed.

We were just a half block from the beach and pier and blocks away from Abbott Kinney Blvd and the shopping. It allowed us to enjoy a quiet retreat with our family while staying in the center of things in Venice Beach CA. The owner was very accomodating and helpful during our stay and provided us excellent service.

Gorgeous house, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Cielo over the 4th of July weekend. It was absolutely perfect for our group of 6 (my husband and I, our two small children and my parents). The location was absolutely ideal - just one block from the beach and less than one block from restaurants, coffee shops etc., yet still very private. The house is comfortable and well equipped, and the decor is lovely and charming - Spanish-influenced, classic, old-style California. The three separate outdoor areas were great as well - the upstairs terrace is large, comfortable and perfect for relaxing in the ocean breeze, and the two downstairs areas are great for outdoor dining and lounging. The pictures don't do this home justice - it is truly wonderful! Plus, you get a lot for your money - it is in the same price range as many other homes in the area with less space, worse locations, and nowhere near as much charm and character. Byrnadette and Sara were great to work with too. Fabulous stay!

Unique, Beautiful, Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to do something special for my friend’s birthday and decided to rent a home close to the beach where we could relax and have fun with a group of our close friends. I cannot say how happy I am that I found this property. We stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend and were all blown away. The decoration inside the house is so unique and beautiful; it takes you back in time. The location cannot get any better since it’s tucked away in an alley but just a block from the beach and close to all the downtown Venice action. We spent a lot of time on the upper deck which had a great view of the beach and neighborhood and was so relaxing and perfect for sunbathing. Every part of the house has its own charm and warmth and although it’s so close to everything we loved the house so much we barely left. I cannot imagine a more perfect mix of privacy, beauty, and fun. We never wanted to leave! Thank you Byrnadette!
