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.

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.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The property location is great and the rental is lovely! The secure location made us feel quite comfortable. We especially enjoyed the bikes and riding along the beach! The fireplace was a nice feature on a rainy LA day. There are great restaurants on Abbott Kinney and within walking distance.

John and Charlotte are very responsive! We definitely recommend this rental!

Thanks John & Charlotte!

Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is as advertised. FANTASTIC location (15 minute walk to Venice Beach) and very nice hosts.

The bikes on the property are a great ad as you can bike down to the beach and along the path. The hosts were very attentive to making sure we found the place okay and had everything we needed.

There are 5 other apartments on the property but we barely saw anyone around us as everyone is out during the day.

One note is the spiral staircase up to the apartment is a little tight so carrying a heavy suitcase may be difficult for some people. Overall, we really enjoyed the place! Would stay again.

Perfect stay, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Truly wonderful stay. The apartment is clean, airy and quiet, with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Loved the little touches of providing tea, coffee and bath products. Location is close to some great places to eat and visit, but far enough from the action to feel safe and quiet - truly like coming home to an oasis of calm. Check in and communication was a breeze. Would recommend and would stay again!

Venice Vibe Extraordinare

  • 5 of 5

If you want the total Venice experience, this is the place. Centrally located between Rose and Abbott Kinney. A quick bike ride to everything -- shopping, excellent restaurants, and the beautiful Santa Monica beach. The owners couldn't have been any nicer. So organized. The accommodations were perfect. We will be back -- and will highly recommend to friends and family.

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We liked that it is close to the beach, but far enough away that it is very quiet. The bikes are great - the best way to get around the area.
