About Mel Latt

We have lived in the walk streets for 18 years and positively love it... Venice is a very special place and we want to share it's uniqueness...

Mel Latt purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Mel Latt chose Los Angeles

In the past we have rented this full time and now look to rent it part time... it is the guest house adjacent to our home...

What makes this cottage unique

The walk streets is a unique place... the neighbors all know each other... there are animals and kids and lots of great conversation... there is also plenty of quiet time and opportunity to just chill out and relax!

Great property in the heart of Venice on a very quiet walk street with designated parking.

  • 5 of 5

Mel was a great host! The bungalow is appointed so nicely and it has a very large outdoor sitting area with a fire pit. So inviting! We would highly recommend this property to anyone that is coming to Venice and wants peace and quiet, comfy bed, outdoor area, designated parking and a great host.

Perfect cottage with fantastic outdoor space!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, the cottage had everything that you would need. It was in a perfect location on the west side. The owners were attentive, but also allowed you to have your own space since it is a shared outside space. The backyard is great for kids!

Amazing outdoor space and access to walk street

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a great choice for our family of four (2 kids, 2 adults). The kids slept in the pull-out sofa bed in the living room which they said was comfortable and worked well for us. Everything is tastefully decorated and there was nothing we wanted that wasn't available in the cottage. The best feature is the huge outdoor space that is shared with the main house, with comfortable seating, a propane fire table that we used on a cool night, trampoline in the yard for the kids, and two very friendly cats always around for a visit. The outdoor space backs onto one of Venice's walk streets, and was an easy walk to Abbott Kinney for restaurants and shopping. It was obvious this is a tight-knit neighbourhood where everyone knows everyone, with kids out playing in each other's yards and up and down the walk path. We were only there for a few days and our kids still managed to make friends with the other kids in the neighbourhood.

Mel was a great host and even searched the place for us after we left for something we couldn't find when we got home. The only downside of our stay was that it was during incredibly hot and humid weather so we had some warm nights and there is no air conditioning. There is a ceiling fan in the bedroom and two plug-in fans that were available for us to use though so we managed. Overall a great place to stay and I'd highly recommend it for couples as well as families.

Wonderful Place perfectly situated

  • 5 of 5

Very clean. Mel was great and very helpful. We took advantage of 3 recommendations and all 3 were spot on. Superba for coffee and dinner one nite, Salt for ice cream ( actually stood in line for 30 min for ice cream but it was well worth it ) and Clutch for dinner . All were great and close by. Our 9 yr old grand daughter loved the cats, trampoline, and ping pong. We loved the out door sitting with fire table. Parking was very nice. The experience far exceeded our expectations.

Comfortable Home...Kind Owner!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a perfect respite place near everything Venice has to offer. The house itself was clean and had really nice supplies in the kitchen. The bed was VERY comfortable. I loved the location and could walk everywhere. Having a dedicated parking spot was critical and I can't imagine staying in a house without that convenience here in the LA area. Mel was so very kind and helpful with any questions I had. The outdoor space was a treat and quite large for this area. When I come back to LA, I will stay here again. I'd also recommend this cottage to my friends and family. Thank you, Mel, for making my stay so comfortable!
