About the property

The Ella House in Venice - Easy Beach Living & Sophisticated Life Style

Spend your next L.A. retreat at the charming Ella house!

Fully-remodeled in June of 2012, the 2-Bedroom / 2-Bath Ella House is beautifully designed to celebrate Southern California's indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Big windows bring in plenty of natural light to the spacious living room and dining room areas. Functional kitchen is equipped with retro countertop and cabinets as well as brand new appliances. Clean and classic California style front yard is equally welcoming as the indoor space. Feel the air and breeze when you chill outdoors, and indulge in comfort and peace when you stay in.

Ideally located on a quiet upscale street in the center of Venice Beach community, the Ella House is just a short walk to retails and cafes, and a 5 minutes bicycle ride to the 'it' hubs of Abbot Kinney and Santa Monica Main Street. Sand and waves are only 2 miles down.

When you arrive, enjoy the reclaimed hardwood floor, open kitchen, mini bar, fireplace, outdoor grill, drought-tolerant garden, and modern amenities including Tempurpedic Cal King beds, solar tube lights, occupancy sensor dimming lights, big flat-screen TV, Bose sound system, and Fios high-speed wireless Internet. An on-site detached garage (one car) plus street parking. Well-behaved pets welcome upon approval.

Come and explore the diverse and vibrant mix of So Cal cultures. Stay at the Ella House and enjoy easy breezy California beach life to the fullest!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The pictures say it fact it feels bigger than it looks in the pictures. Clean, comfortable and in a good location. We stayed for 5 nights and were very comfortable. I would rent it again.

Great location. House is a good size for 4 people. Garage space was a bonus!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a long weekend at the Ella House. Each couple had our own bedroom and bathroom. Everything at the house was just as it was described on the website. The location was close to the beach and Abbot Kinney. The House was quiet even though it was right off Venice Blvd. it was nice to have a garage because parking would have been challenging.

Perfect Getaway !!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Ella House. The location is ideal as it’s nestled in a quaint Venice neighborhood, yet close enough to bike to the trendy Abbot Kinney area with lots of shops and restaurants. The beach is 10 mins biking awayz The house is decorated with a layback Beach feel and is nicely equipped for a comfortable home away from home. We had s’mores in the outdoor courtyard by the fire pit! Communication with the host was easy and all questions were answered without delay.

Overall, we highly enjoyed staying here and will recommend the Ella House to our friends and would love to come back again in the near future.

Vacation at the Ella House

  • 5 of 5

I just moved to California and my family wanted to come visit me before the holidays hit because they knew I would be alone for them. There could not have been a better choice to stay in than the Ella House. It is a rather small unit once you're inside, but it feels so spacious. There were 6 of us and we all felt at home. The decor was great, and they even left two Ferrero Rocher candy balls for us when we checked in. They happen to be my mother's favorite, it was kind of a sneaky sign that let us know we picked the right place. Thanks for the memories!

Disappointed - bait and switch

  • 2 of 5

The pictures do not reflect the home as it is today, at all. Maybe 8 years ago, but this house has been neglected and not kept up from the use of being a VRBO. The bedding was stained and flimsy and the pillows were flat as a pancake. The hardwood floors were terribly worn and created dust, we all were sneezing and had watering eyes when we sat in the house. The sofa was beaten down and the dirty. The yard was a dirt pit, not even a flowering plant. The kitchen barely had a bowl to make a salad in and the outdoor lighting was dangerously insufficient. You couldn't see to even put the key code in. We were so very disappointed.

Owner's Response: Owner’s Perspective - While we appreciate your feedback on your recent stay with us, we are very concerned about the term of bait and switch used in your comments. We pride ourselves in providing our guests with the highest standard for a great vacation home experience. During 2017, we have painted the entire house, reupholstered the sofa, and replaced the pillows and beddings, to name a few. In addition, we encourage our guests to contact us for special requests and additional supplies during their stay. We are always available to fulfill our guests’ needs. It is unfortunate and surprising to hear that this was not a satisfactory visit for you. The Ella House has been a popular choice for our guests for the past five years (beginning August 2012). We strive to maintain our home with regular inspections on furniture condition, house supplies and yard upkeep. Rest assured, we will address your comments to ensure that all aspects of the home are in the best condition possible.
