Clean, modern property. Beautiful view and great location. Property management was extremely responsive and accommodating. Definitely recommend this property!
Clean, cozy and wonderful! We were there for a big sailing race and this was the perfect place to be
Monica was great!
Great location and building amenities!
We had a wonderful stay in this spacious apartment. We were the first guests to stay in this unit and appreciated how clean and new it was. We were traveling with our two sons and enjoyed having large bedrooms, theirs with two queen beds, and two bathrooms. Monica has included nice extras like laundry detergent, nice shampoo and conditioner, as well as a well stocked kitchen of utensils and pans. The view over rooftops included a glimpse of the Grand Canal and some ocean. The sunsets were beautiful. My sons of course had to “try out” the TV and happily accessed Netflix.
Our arrival went smoothly. James was waiting for us as planned at our meeting location. We just texted him as we left the airport. We met close to the garage entrance which is convenient. However, please know that the building complex seems much nicer from the front entrance, as one would expect! James was quick to respond by text if there was anything we needed. The building complex is also great. The outdoor pool is warm (at least it seemed warm to our Canadian family!) and we enjoyed the hot tubs. The fire pits, BBQs and games areas are also great for families. We appreciated having free parking spaces in the building too. Our one suggestion would be providing two sets of keys and fobs to guests (we had two fobs, but just one set of keys to the unit).
The location is wonderful. After a few long days of touring about, having the Cheesecake Factory across the street was very convenient. Our youngest liked the playground in front of the restaurant and we had a great time renting paddle boards at the small beach there (kayaks are also available). The other direction, we could walk to groceries at the Market at Washington and Via Dolce (well stocked for a small market) and we rented a boogie board at the shop just along Washington for a day of playing in the waves at Venice Beach. It was about a 15 minute walk to the Venice Beach and 5 minutes to the small beach in the Marina area. My husband is always happy when there is a local Starbucks (near Venice Beach)! However, he wanted to highly recommend the coffee at the Saturday farmer’s market in the parking lot of the Cheesecake Factory. He says it was one of the best he’s tasted! Just beyond the Market lies the historical Canal district. It is also a beautiful spot to go for a stroll.
Overall, we had a great stay in Monica and James’ apartment. We would recommend it.
Carol, what a wonderfully detailed review. You really touched on so many good points. I appreciate the time you spent writing this, lot of great points as well and I really appreciate you leaving such great insight for my other future potential guests You were a pleasure to host and I look forward to having you back!
The beautiful experience
El departamento es más bonito de lo q se ve en las fotos completamente bien equipado muy cómodo Excelente unidad
Claudia, estoy encantada de saber que tuviste una excelente estancia. Fue un placer hospedar y también espero tenerte de vuelta.
Roomy apartment with water views
The apartment is modern, with two large bedrooms and two full baths. The kitchen is fully equipped. There is garage parking for one car, which is good as a car is pretty much required; there are really no stores or restaurants within walking distance. During our stay the owner provided only a single key to the building and apartment. We assume that this problem would be corrected for future guests. Had the weather been warmer, we would have been disappointed that there was no furniture on the small balcony overlooking the marina.
Thank you Ralph! We really enjoyed having the opportunity to host you and hope we have the chance to do so again in the future!
