About the property

The Opposite House in Venice Beach - Easy Beach Living & Ocean Inspired Lifestyle

Spend your next L.A. vacation at the charming Opposite House in Venice Beach!

Fully-remodeled in July of 2012, the 1-Bedroom / 1-Bath Other Place is your home away from home. Beautifully designed to celebrate Southern California's indoor-outdoor lifestyle, big bay windows bring in plenty of natural light to the spacious master suite. Functional kitchen indoors with professional chief's BBQ/oven station outdoors. Spacious drought-tolerant garden with tranquil water fountain, lay back in the chaise & doze off in southern California's warm ocean breeze.

Ideally located on a quiet upscale street in the center of Venice Beach community, the Other Place 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, outdoor grill, drought-tolerant garden, and modern amenities including Tempurpedic Cal King bed, modern skylight, big flat-screen TV, Bose sound system, and high-speed wireless Internet. An on-site carport (one car) plus street parking is available. Well-behaved pets are welcomed prior to owner's approval.

Come and explore the diverse and vibrant mix of So Cal cultures. Stay at the Other Place, indulge yourself in this seclusive hideout, and enjoy easy breezy California beach life to the fullest!

Guestbook comments from the owner

When I received the detailed instructions for check-in I felt very 007, international spy-ish, but any trepidation I felt about the process, instantly dissipated upon my arrival and easy access to the property. My reservation at The Opposite House was initially for 3 days, but I extended it to 5 when I saw what an incredibly clean, comfortable & beautiful space it was. The bedroom is huge, the bed is big enough for 3 adults & the bathroom was more like a spacious private spa. Every design detail was brilliantly executed to make staying at the property a wonderful, unforgettable experience. There is no doubt that the hosts invested their hearts and souls into creating a space worthy of Architectural Digest!

Lovely place, great character

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, it felt like a home away from home. Really enjoyed the off-street parking, that's a must in LA. Would love to come back again someday!

Great spacious house with secured parking! Comfortable bed, a bath with jets, and stocked kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

Instructions to get into the house (code and keys) were simple to follow. House itself was nice, trendy looking, and more than spacious for 2 people. Having a parking spot behind a secured gate, on the property, made it so much easier to have a car (as you will likely need in LA). Very close to Abbot Kinney and the beach. Very quiet area near the house at night and very private. Thanks for the great stay!

Nice quiet, roomy bedroom and bath

Patio very nice and relaxing with some airport noise.. not too bad. Off street secure parking a big plus. Refrig and dishwasher a bit marginal. Had a nice stay.

Awesome place, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here recently while in town for work. The Saturday after work, we had a few super close friends over that we haven't seen in years since my wife and I moved to the Bay Area. We were super comfortable at the Opposite House. Comfortable enough to have our infant crawling around on the floor because the place was very clean and well maintained. The bedroom and bed were really comfortable and the bathroom was very updated and modern. Hopefully the next trip down we'll get a chance to use the cool looking jacuzzi tub!

P.S. Having lived in LA for a good amount of time it was really key for me to have a parking space for our rental that my wife would be able to go back and forth to with our kid in case I wasn't around. The parking space was so helpful because of easily accessible it was. So if you've got family or pets - I highly recommend staying here!
