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.

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.

Comfortable homestay.

  • 4 of 5

My 3 friends and I liked this cozy home. Private yard and firepit on a quiet street. We had room to relax, sleep and eat. The air conditioning was a plus. Close to a Costco, shopping plazas, Venice and Santa Monica. Would return.

great location and quaint roomy house

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house in quiet street with easy access by public transport system to major sites in other parts of LA. Comfortable beds and leafy neighbourhood, garage and small pleasant garden to sit in in evening.

Only negative comment is that it would be good to have some table lamps in living room and dining room rather than bright overhead lights and some limited lighting in garden as there are 2 large magnolia trees which overhang and make it a bit dark. The kitchen could also benefit from some better utensils although Yuwen did arrange for extra things when asked

Yuwen was a great host responding to queries immediately and giving us a bit of extra time on our last day as we had a later flight.

We all enjoyed our stay here and Venice beach area which is so much nicer than downtown LA or Hollywood! It felt like a lived in and friendly community

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Ella House for a week in July. Four of us were very comfortable in the accommodations. The house was spotless. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The beds were so comfortable - I don't think I've slept better in a long time! We enjoyed our time in the house - working at the dining room table or lounging in the living room - there was always plenty of room for all of us. We appreciated the extra touches such as laundry and dishwashing detergent and coffee filters available for our use. We traveled between Marina del Rey, Santa Monica and Westwood/Century City on our trip and this was a great location. It was a record warm week in July and we appreciated the house's great air conditioner. The check-in process was very easy and on-site which we appreciated. Great place to stay - we hope to return next summer!
