About the Property

Orchid Bungalow, 1 Bedroom + 1 Convertible futons, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Thank you so much for your interest in the Orchid Bungalow. It is a special little sanctuary on the tranquil Venice Canals, the absolute very best place to stay on the Westside.

We are a block & half walk to Venice Beach, Venice Boardwalk, Venice Pier & Abbot Kinney Blvd.
This original bungalow built was 1950 & has been renovated extensively.

Situated on what 'they' say is one of the most beautiful canal due to its mature trees, the house is tucked in between a large Chinese Maple & Eucalyptus, almost @ a 'T' view where the canal connects with Eastern Canal.
Other than the occasional duck fight, you will sleep peacefully at night as there is no through traffic.

French doors open out onto stone deck & the quiet canal, while a side dutch entry door adds to the open airy feeling. The apartment is the self-contained canal front unit of a duplex.

The canal front deck is a magical transformational refuge where you'll want to sip coffee, wine or simply relax.

A full kitchen with dishwasher, washer/dryer, gas stove/oven, garbage disposal & roomy fridge with ice maker, looks out onto the canals & windows open onto deck for ease in passing food or drinks.

Full stone bathroom with comfy soaking tub. Skylight gives great day light throughout.

Sleeping arrangements:
Bedroom has a Queen bed with tufted headboard, forced A/C & Heater unit & skylight with shutter for darkness.

Full futon in bedroom becomes chaise or comfy full bed and easily clicks back into sofa for day.

We only rent this space for guest's quiet enjoyment of the canals & each other. For day guests kindly please look at the full house version : vrbo.com/633034

Comes with one dedicated parking spot...very important on the canals! All gates lock to provide security & the boat dock from which to dangle your feet completes the experience!

A magical rejuvenating space. ;-)

Car: Not Necessary

Our Bungalow is located on what is left of the canals Mr. Abbot Kinney created when he built Venice in the early 1900s.

When the city acquired Venice in 1933 the canals had fallen into disarray & all of the canals were filled in save for the 6 that remain here today. In 1990 the entire canal area was beautifully renovated and is now one of the most valuable areas in LA County.

We are an easy walk to Abbot Kinney Blvd. which is becoming trendier by the day with it's fabulous restaurants & shopping. Easy walks to the beautiful Venice Pier and crazy Venice Boardwalk with all of its famous street performers, etc.

Bike rentals are close by and we are 10 minutes to LAX, right off Venice Blvd. with ease to Beverly Hills, Hollywood & downtown LA.

You can walk or bike most anywhere for whatever you may need~ store, bank, dry cleaners, etc..

So close to all but so far from the maddening crowds...a true sanctuary from busy L.A. after working or sightseeing.

Important note for visitors not from the area: There is a big difference between places actually on the canals vs. Venice Beach, the walk streets or off Abbot Kinney Blvd. which we call 'the hood'.

The canals is a small self-contained area with limited car access which creates a noise buffer & makes it more difficult for the general craziness of Venice to intrude. Hence the price difference from other Venice rentals that may be grouped together here. We have tried to alert VRBO as to the vast differences in the neighborhoods in the Venice area but their logarithm can only discern so much... The vacation renter is highly advised to run a quick safety check on the area in which they are renting. If you want to stay on the canals, check carefully that the listing is actually on one of the Canals: Eastern, Grand, Howland, Sherman, Linnie or Carroll Canals or the east side of Strongs Dr.

Why the Owner Chose Venice, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
You cannot be anywhere quieter & more beautiful and still be soo close to the beach & a happening scene. period. :-)

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Our deck provides an amazingly rejuvenating view of the canals along with cushions for comfort and relative privacy due to its slight elevation.
