Reviewer Comments:

The positives - great location, close to everything including the beach. The negatives - very dirty! I killed aprox 5-6 spiders.. the floor was dirty, the dishes were dingy, there was even trash outside on the patio. Gross. Not what I expected. One of the chairs even had a gross stain on it. The photos were inviting but the place was not. Would not recommend this rental.

Reviewer Comments:

The added on fees for cleaning, booking, and security made this NOT be the modestly priced rental advertised. It was adequate, but the windows were very, very dirty and the bath sink just trickled water.

Reviewer Comments:

In a decent location in Venice and near Santa Monica. Kitchen was fully stocked. The outdoor patio was neat and charming. There was no need for AC as the property had plenty of fans and windows to let in the ocean breeze. The Bad? Spider webs was everywhere in all corners, windows, and shower. Floors not swept or mopped. Toilet seat needs to be replaced as it have a stain that is not pleasant to look at. Was not given two sets of towels, hand towels, or face cloths. Property is a little worn down compared to the picture. My definition of a good location may not be the same for everyone. LA area will have homeless people in your trash cans and graffiti everywhere. The entrance is in an alley... if you are not up for a walk through the alley at night, you may not feel safe. You will have to park on alternative streets and watch out for street signs. Verdict? The price can definitely be more cheaper considering some nearby properties in the area. However, last minute planning is all I had left. I'm young and only stayed in the rental to sleep. most days and nights I was taking part in all the activities to do in a 50 mile radius from Hollywood to Long Beach and even Vegas. If you want a more comfortable unit that is accessible, this may not be for you. If you just want a place to sleep and cook your own breakfast, go for it but do not expect a perfect home. I just wish that cleaning fee actually was utilize on good cleaning. It would be nice if Globe Homes can come out and inspect the property.

Several drawbacks

  • 1 of 5

We had several issues with this rental. While the interior is nicely designed with IKEA fittings and there is a nice little patio area, the unit is located immediately off an alley of garages, lined with garbage bins and frequented by many, many local stray cats who leave a lot of cat feces and urine. In cooler weather the lack of A/C would probably not be an issue, but because walls of the alley are immediately outside the windows, there is very little cross ventilation and a lot of odor from the alley. In hot weather the unit is much warmer than the outside air. Several of the amenities listed were not present, there is only basic cable TV/internet, there was no hair dryer. The batteries in the remotes were dead. The unit is about a mile from the beach and Venice stip, just off Highway 1/Lincoln next to car lots and related businesses. The bed is extremely uncomfortable, especially for two people. If you are not there during the day these may not be major problems, but if vacationing it's not ideal. We wanted to like this place, but it just wasn't a good location.

Wonderful stay, I will be back!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed everything this little house had to offer. I was mostly here for business, but the location was very convenient for me to go to the beach after work to relax. The neighborhood felt safe and comfortable, and the house had everything I needed. My only detraction was that I found the mattress slightly uncomfortable, but other than that I loved the place and will definitely be back. I come to California often for work and will certainly be using Globe again!
