Private Guest House With Jacuzzi Hot Tub, Spanish Patio And Fountain

Our guest house was chosen by National Geographic's Traveler of the Year for his recent stay in Los Angeles. Relatively new to VRBO, we have over 200 5-star reviews on another hosting site.

If you are considering staying in Venice, keep in mind that you'll never find a parking space. Located in nearby Mar Vista, less than two miles from world famous Venice Beach and with abundant available street parking. Located less than two miles from world famous Venice Beach, our private guest house is situated at the rear of our property and includes a half bathroom and kitchenette. The shower, which is external and is hot water, is just at the rear of the guest house and next to a Jacuzzi hot tub amidst lush landscaping with a serene zen-like sensibility. Citrus trees release an intoxicating fragrance several times during the year. French doors at the front of the guest house open to a Spanish-tiled patio and fountain. Guests can enjoy their morning coffee or evening snacks and drinks al fresco seated at the umbrella-ed patio table adjacent to the Spanish fountain. Guests may easily enter and exit the property from a gate at the front of the property.

Guests have use of the entire guest house, which is completely detached from the main house. The guest house is nearly 600 square feet and has a combination of hardwood and stone tile flooring. The queen-sized sofa bed features a new Memory Foam mattress outfitted with 400 thread count Egyptian cotton linens.

Bar stool style counter and eating area are adjacent to the kitchenette which is equipped with a refrigerator, sink, coffee maker, microwave oven, electric tea kettle, available hot plate, plates, bowls, glasses, coffee cups, tea pot, and utensils. The kitchenette is stocked with assortments of tea, coffee, juice, soda and bottled water. The guest house is immaculately kept. Linens, towels, pillows, blankets, shampoos, conditioners, soaps, etc. are provided. High-speed wireless internet is available on the property. A 42' HDTV is available in the guest house, along with hundreds of channels via DIRECTV, a stereo tuner, Blu-Ray DVD player, compact disk player, and in-ceiling speakers. Plentiful street parking is available with no restrictions.

The property is located in a quiet residential neighbourhood and is less than a five minute walk to major bus lines to the beach and elsewhere. Nearby destinations include the famed Abbot Kinney Boulevard (named by GQ Magazine in 2012 as the 'Coolest Block in America') with its eclectic assortment of restaurants, shops and (on certain nights) a vast array of gourmet food trucks; Venice Beach and boardwalk, home of the famed 'Muscle Beach,' food, shopping, and a wide array of interesting characters; the beautiful Venice canals, modeled in the spirit of those of the neighborhood's namesake in Italy; Santa Monica's Main Street, home to a wide array of restaurants and shopping; Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade, home to a wide array of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment; and the famed Santa Monica Pier, home to an amusement park and restaurants and adjacent to the Santa Monica Beach. LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) is 15 minutes to the south.

Please note- no smoking inside the property; two person maximum; minimum age 25; no small children; no pets; no guests: please have your LA area friends and relatives meet you elsewhere. Check in is after 3pm the day of your arrival - earlier check-in might be possible depending on that day's schedule. Check out is by 11AM the day of your departure.

Other: there is a construction project next door that has been winding down. Workers might show up M-F as early as 7A and Saturday as early as 8A. In recent weeks, work has been sporadic and if they show up it has usually been late morning. No guests have voiced any issues.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful tranquil spot in the middle of LA's Cacophony! Bay has the sweetest guesthouse. Totally secluded and serene. NOTE: if you are traveling from the east coast and have jet lag and find yourself up at 5:30am...i highly recommend making coffee and watching the sun come up from the Hot Tub in the back yard!!! My girlfriend and i had a much needed, relaxing mini vacation! Thanks Bay, we will be back!

Great little getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the guesthouse! Our host was so accommodating when we showed up a whole day early! The space was quiet, clean, and just right for this road-worn traveler. Also two words: hot tub! I will be staying here again!

Loved the outdoor shower , hot tub and fruit trees. Once activated the fountain was lovely to hear.

  • 4 of 5

Authentic cottage. Gracious host. Respectful rules are spelled out and expected to be followed. Entrance into the space is made daily to do dishes and make up sleeper couch.

My one and only request would be a much thicker, firmer mattress or bed. There is a pillowtop, but I need a firm thick mattress for my lower back.

Nice, but! It's an office space that offers a fold out bed.

  • 3 of 5

In a good location for Venice beach (but as a smoker, you can not smoke with in the park. All very anal to me) and buses into L.A. town. (Chinese theatre and stuff.) It has a lovely living area. The outside shower is fine. Bay is an attentive host, without being in your face. The kitchenette has a micro wave, so don't plan on cooking a meal. Fine dining is beyond the area.

One-week stay in LA

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at this lovely guest house. Accommodations were excellent, and the owner was quite friendly while still respecting our privacy. Neighborhood is close to the beach, which was precisely where we wanted to be. I highly recommend this wonderful guest house to a single person, or couple. You won't be disappointed.
