About the property

Spacious, light, bright and romantic apartment in the center of Venice Beach.

Vacationers, business travelers or guests visiting family and friends, this one bedroom loft apartment provides a clean, spacious, comfortable and private setting for your stay in Venice Beach. This beautiful multi-level apartment with separate bedroom loft is located in the center of Venice Beach yet on a quiet residential street away from it all. With 20ft. high ceilings and large windows it lets in lots of natural light.

Parking is free parking in our residential street. We park our own cars in the street as well.

You will find a comfortable California king size bed with high thread count sheets and four fluffy pillows in the cozy upstairs bedroom loft.

There is a spacious, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with tub & shower and a balcony for you to enjoy.

Couples alert: the loft has a romantic wood burning fire place - free wood included!

The kitchen includes a stainless steel refrigerator with freezer, gas range with oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, kettle (tea & coffee and starter creamer pods included), toaster, and all pots, pans, plates, glasses and utensils needed to make your own meals. Do your own cooking and buy your supplies at the nearby Whole Foods, 99 Cents store, Ralphs or Smart & Final, or immerse yourself in the Venice lifestyle and walk over to one of the many great restaurants on Abbot Kinney Blvd. (5 blocks), Rose Ave. (2 blocks) or Main Street Santa Monica (5 blocks) for breakfast, lunch & dinner.

It is an easy stroll over to trendy Gjusta for a morning coffee and one of their scrumptious baked goods or try out the Rose cafe, Cafe Gratitude or Flake for a delicious breakfast. For lunch and dinner there are too many restaurants to mention here. But we are happy to suggest a few - just ask!

Check-in is at 3 pm. Check-out is at 11 am. Please respect these times so we can prepare the apartment for the next guest.

If you prefer to explore the area by bicycle, you are welcome to use our beach cruisers (helmets & locks included). For details, please read the notes.

Access is by staircase to the second floor and is not suitable for wheelchairs.

The property is full of trees and plants that offer shade from the California sun.

Your apartment has beach towels, parasol and a cooler to take to the beach.

As most beach properties along the California Coastline, this property is not equipped with an A/C unit. With average beach temperatures ranging from 65 to 75 degrees year round, air conditioning is not generally needed in our beach areas. For our warmer days, each of our beach properties is equipped with a ceiling fan and two standing portable ventilator fans which, when combined with open windows, allow the fresh ocean air to circulate and cool your property to a very pleasant temperature.

What can you do in Venice? Too much to mention here! Venice Beach is mostly unique for its beach, nightlife and shopping and just 'hanging out'. It is also great for walking, biking, jogging and roller blading. Don't forget to visit the Venice Canals, the Venice Walkways and of course the Venice Boardwalk. The apartment has a variety visitor guides to help plan your stay but if you still have questions or would like some suggestions, we are happy to help.

Conveniently, we live in the house in the front which is in a separate building. We respect our and your privacy and are available to assist you with anything you need when you ask otherwise we will leave you alone. The premises: We look forward to welcoming you onto our property, giving you a tour when you arrive and helping you get settled in if you so choose to. However, we can also send you self check-in instructions when you book so you can come and go as you please whenever it is convenient for you.

If this apartment is booked for your dates, please inquire about our other listing and we will do our best to accommodate you. We have apartments and studios of all sizes.

Parking is free street parking in our street. We park our own cars in the street as well. Mondays and Tuesday 8 - 10 a.m. there is street cleaning so please make sure you read the signs and park your car on the right side of the street.

We do not allow changes to confirmed bookings.

Cozy Convenience with Bikes!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay in this very cool place! Set up with all the info and guides and advise we could possibly want or need. Comfortable bed is huge plus. Bikes and bike locks included made for a fun ride down the beach. We also used the beach towels and beach bag and umbrella. Also a DVR helped us enjoy TV and skip commercials when we just wanted chill on the couch! If there were way to improve, the key was a little sticky getting into the place but no biggie, and the water pressure in the shower was just fine, but I'm picky about showers and like some good water pressure. Overall very very hospitable and our host checked in to make sure everything was going well. Great stay!

Great Place and Location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location of this cute little is within walking distance to Rose Ave, Abbott Kinney and the beach. A bit of a longer walk would get you to Main St in Santa Monica. Apartment was clean and bed was comfortable. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks John and Charlotte!

Beautiful Venice apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely spot to stay for the night. It was close to main st, quiet, and had a very homey feel to it. The owners are truly wonderful to work with! It was my fiancé birthday and they went out of their way to leave him a birthday card upon our arrival. Everything was wonderful, thank you for a lovely apartment.

We loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights in August and did not want to leave! The unit is very spacious, light, bright and airy which I loved. What surprised me the most was how quiet everything was even though it is in the middle of a densely populated area. We did not hear anyone or their televisions and we kept our windows open the entire time. When you enter the property through a locked gate you immediately feel relaxed amongst the trees and shade. Our unit was in the back of the property on the 2nd floor and I felt very safe the entire time there. The unit and property were very clean and well kept. There are complimentary bikes to use which was a huge bonus and there are miles and miles of places to ride them. The area that the property is located in has almost anything you could possibly need. We usually shop and cook while we're away so we can have fresh and healthy food but there was no need for that as fresh and healthy food places were everywhere. John and Charlotte were very helpful and communicative before, during and after our stay and our security deposit was refunded almost immediately after we left. A couple of things that my husband was concerned about was the spiral staircase leading up to the second floor and the bedroom/loft was a little difficult if you had very large suitcases to haul up. And since the unit was so bright, if someone did not like to wake up with the sun they should bring a sleep mask. I would definitely recommend this property if you're visiting the Venice and Santa Monica areas.
