About Bev Weise

I have lived in this house for 13 years and every day appreciate I live in paradise! Professionally, I am an executive coach and leadership development consultant.

Bev Weise purchased this house in 2004

Why Bev Weise chose Venice

I love my home because it is away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, on the water (one of only 6 canals), yet minutes away from the excitement of the beach, great shopping, restaurants, and the best of Southern California living. The house, itself, has clean lines, uncluttered, and is very liveable, practical, and relaxing. I always feel like I'm on vacation.

What makes this house unique

A canal in my front yard! Relaxing patio chairs off of 2nd and 3rd floor patios to enjoy the view above the canal.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 11 nights at Bev's house -- well stocked, well maintained, with tips for neighborhood access to things, and if you're careful, parking for 4 cars!! I especially liked the user-friendly hating / a.c. system. Good tv's, good sound system -- very quiet location.

Family Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

Our family came to Venice to celebrate Thanksgiving with our younger son. Since we were five of us this year, we decided to enjoy our time together in a home, where we could all be under one roof, cook and dine together and spend family time relaxing together. What a great decision!!! Bev's house on the canals, was not only beautiful, it was extremely comfortable for the entire family. Spend days exploring LA and come home ( yes it felt like home ) to family dinners on the front patio overlooking the canals, peaceful moments on the balconies or by the fireplace on a chilly evening. Everything is so close you can walk to the beach every day, enjoy the walks on the canals or use the kayak, which was made available to us. Abbott Kinney with it's shopping and amazing restaurants is only a ten minute walk away. It was perfect, loved every moment of our holiday together in Bev's home, truly relaxing. Thank you Bev for everything, we hope to be back again soon.

Everything was Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at the canals. It was more than I expected! Bev was so accommodating and was always available. We wanted to spend time with family and enjoy Venice and the canals. Everything was within walking distance. We really enjoyed the peacefulness of the canals. Bev's home is everything and more. It's even better than the pictures! Thanks, Bev, for everything! We really enjoyed spending time with our family. We enjoyed the walks to the beach and canals and cooking in the kitchen and eating on the patio overlooking the canals. It was wonderful!

Very quite a vacation within the city

  • 5 of 5

Walks at night through the canals seeing how people used to live. People are friendly everybody says hi which is quite unusual for LA. House is great with lots of light, the balconies are wonderful to sit on both day and night. Strong recommendation to rent this house.

PERFECT RELAXING VACATION

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days just after Xmas and had the most wonderful time. I couldn’t agree more with the enthusiastic reviews below and in particular with the one submitted on 9/11/13 which is very comprehensive and accurate.

The house is full of light and sunshine, the beddings extremely comfortable, the bathrooms spacious and the living room overlooking the canal very relaxing.

The location in the secluded canals area is simply the best, with no noise whatsoever and yet 400 yards from the beach, just a few minutes away with the bicycles waiting for you in the garage.

Bev the owner is very nice and answers back immediately if you need her.

We will definitely rent this house again on our next trip to Los Angeles.
