Modern Modern 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Town Home In The Very Best Part Of Venice

The Space

We have a 3 bedroom townhouse in the very best part of Venice. This is an excellent location for creatives in town short-term for media and film projects, or for extended stays. Families are most welcome. The townhouse accommodates five comfortably.

Our Modern, light-filled, two story home is located in a quiet, upscale neighborhood in the heart of Venice. A short stroll brings you to dynamic Abbott Kinney Boulevard where you can experience great shopping, great eating--(Gjelina, GTA, Tasting Kitchen, Wabi Sabi, Saltair , Zinque, Hal's, Kreation, 3 square and many more+++), cafes and nightlife. Just 7 sane blocks to Venice Beach and the boardwalk for biking, surfing, swimming. We are 20 minutes from LAX and centrally located to Santa Monica, Malibu, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and downtown LA.

Description: Experience California indoor/outdoor living at its finest. Enter through a lush Mediterranean garden of dwarf olives, Arabian lilac, succulents and a towering palm tree. Dine alfresco beneath a canopy of grapevines beside a burbling koi pond. Barbecue on a Tuscan wood fired or a Weber gas-fired grill. Gather around an open campfire. This spacious and tasteful townhome features classic modern furnishings and exceptional Art. French doors throughout open onto patios, decks, secret gardens and koi ponds. Featured on the 2010 Venice Home and Garden Tour.

Amenities include: 
3 bedrooms--1 King, 1 Full, 1 single 
2 bathrooms 
Cook's kitchen with Subzero fridge, stainless appliances, caesarstone counters 
Maple floors throughout 
Luxury Italian high-thread count linens 
Wireless internet and cable 
Samsung 50' Flat screen HD SmartTV 
ipod dock

There is plenty of on street parking right in front of the house. 
The #1 and #3 Santa Monica Big Blue buses stop just 2 blocks away. The Metro #33 runs from Venice Blvd. to downtown.

Guest Access

Our guests have access to the front garden for outdoor dining (seats up to 12) and use of the outdoor fireplace and grill. The back townhouse also has a stone deck entrance with outdoor seating and another deck off the kitchen with another seating group and a koi pond. The back patio, sunny in the afternoon, has another table and chairs.

Interaction with Guests

The main house on our property is a duplex. My husband and I live in the front townhouse. The tastefully furnished back townhouse has been set up for the enjoyment of our guests. We have as much or as little interaction with our guests as they desire. We try for pleasant inconspicuousness.

The Neighborhood

This neighborhood is quiet, yet creative, with a very dynamic retail area (Abbot Kinney Blvd.) just two blocks away. Venice Beach, in all it's glory, is just 7 blocks away. (A fifteen minute walk, or a 5 minute bike ride) 
The best part of this neighborhood is the diversity of experience one can encounter in such a short distance.

Other Things to Note

In the interest of being energy conscious, we ask that you turn the downstairs lights off at night. Please note that there are no parties or hosted events allowed. Thank you.

About Jo-Ann McAuliffe

I love living in Venice, bicycling to the beach, farmer's markets, and the various wonderful local eateries, especially 'Gjelina' just two blocks down the street. I'm the mother of five wonderful children, and the wife of a contemporary art dealer. Together, over the last thirty years, we have greatly enjoyed our Venice lifestyle, and we are glad to share it with you.

fantasic stay - highly recommened!

  • 5 of 5

We got to stay 2 months in Jo-Ann and Davids beautiful townhouse. Our kids felt right at home. We were welcomed with cheese, wine, lots of fresh lemons and other goodies which was a nice surprise after a day of traveling and no groceries in the kitchen yet! The house basically has everything you need from a super equipped kitchen with better pans and pots we have at home (and we do cook a lot) to everything little kids could need incl scooters, books and lego! The house is super comfortable and any questions we had, Jo-Ann and David were there to answer and help. They are lovely hosts and extremely helpful. The location is one of the best you can find in Venice. You can walk to almost anything or hop on one of their bikes! Oh and did I mentioned a great kids playground is just around the corner (and 3 more a short bike ride away). We had a fabulous time and will be back!
