a great house in a great spot
This house was the perfect size for my family of 3 and in a perfect location for our stay in LA. For an extended stay like ours (7 weeks) there weren't enough storage options for us to comfortably unpack and feel at home, but once we bought our own solutions for that the place felt just like home. There's a lot of rules, some of which are difficult to follow for younger children and became a source of constant worry, but overall they were basically the same rules we'd probably want to follow if it was our own house. Despite all that we were very happy to stay there and very sad to leave.
Charming house, great location!
First of all, we really enjoyed our stay at this house. The house itself is lovely (and super clean!! Even under the beds, where we were a lot because toys kept sliding under there), but the front and back patio really made it for us. We had dinner out there two nights in a row!
The house is in a great location (close to fun restaurants, grocery store, the beach and shopping). There are also really nice quiet streets with sidewalks so if you were inclined to walk places it's very conducive to that. (We walked to the grocery store three mornings in a row.)
I will also say that although the house is definitely family friendly (they have a Pack and Play and are close to parks) it would probably be better for slightly older kids. Ours are only one and four and I was always a little bit worried that they would try to make mischief, despite the fact that we moved all of the breakable items AND we spent a good deal of time outside. Overall, not a deal-breaker in any way, just something to consider if you have kids that like to climb or open cabinets. If you have a baby or slightly older kids this house is great! (Or perhaps ours are just rambunctious.)
Finally, the owners were very responsive. Claudia sent a lovely welcome email and responded immediately when we had trouble finding the Pack and Play upon check-in.
We had a great time. Good location. Claudia was great to work with.
Very stylish, very comfortable. Conveniently located. Easy to deal with host/owner.
Stylish cottage with great Venice location
Super stylish cottage in convenient, safe location. Perfect for my husband, teenage daughter and me while visiting family. No air conditioning so an extra fan or two would help. Impossible to keep water off kitchen counter (as requested) especially with no dishwasher though kitchen was well-equipped. Afforable, clean and comfortable. Owner is pleasant and easy to cooperate.
Great home for childless couples during cooler months.
This is a beautifully redone home near Venice Beach. It had a nice private patio and a garage which makes parking a breeze. If you have an SUV it would be very hard to get in garage but our midsize rental could be negotiated in! There was a nice front load washer and dryer A couple of things to be aware of No A/C. Since we were out most of the day it wasn't too big an issue, but it took a while to cool down when we came in for the evening. I also was somewhat nervous leaving the windows open at night, but comfort won over safety! I would not travel there with small children. The home had too many rules to keep it nice but it stressed me out especially having a thirteen-year-old. I was constantly afraid the countertop would get a stain. Since we didn't cook much it wasn't as bad as it could be.
Summary: beautiful home better for families without children during cooler months and not into cooking.
I am glad you loved our home but not sure I agree it’s not great for guests with families. We have hosted so many young families and as you can see from our glowing reviews there were no complaints. With regards to parking, we offer several options for large car parking. We have tons of street parking directly in front of our home and a very large closed in garage area in the back of our home, in addition to a indoor garage. Our home is located in one of the safest areas of Venice Beach since we are located very close to two grammar schools that are patrolled constantly, so leaving windows open is never an issue. We also have several fans that cool off the home instantly. Not sure what strict rules you are referring to that made you nervous. I am not aware of any rules other then respecting our home and property which I am sure every home owner requires. We have a very large kitchen with state of the art appliances and cooking is never a problem. Your review was a bit too critical of the amazing experience our home offers.
