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 spacious, multi-level one bedroom loft apartment provides a clean, large, comfortable and private setting for your stay AND places you right in the heart of a new, reborn Venice Beach, with easy access to wonderful restaurants, great stores and galleries. And with only a short walk to the Venice Boardwalk and the beach, you have the best of both worlds right at your doorstep! The loft is located on a quiet residential street. 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, modern bathroom with 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! There are also maps and guide books in the apartment to help you plan your stay.

If you prefer to explore the area by bicycle, you are welcome to use our beach cruisers on a first come, first serve basis (helmets & locks included). Please read the notes for additional information.

Love the property and the location.

This property was clean and quiet. It was a quick and pleasant walk to the beach and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

Great spot for a few days in LA -- will be back!

  • 5 of 5


-- Super friendly, gracious, and helpful owners

-- Great location (only a short walk to Abbot Kinney, Main St. Santa Monica, the beach, and close to tons of great restaurants -- including Gjusta!)

-- Quaint, quiet, laidback neighborhood -- yet still super close to all the action

-- Very spacious and surprisingly quiet apartment

-- Consistent and fast WiFi (which has been a huge issue with many other VRBOs we've stayed in)

-- Really neat property with great landscaping, design and a ton of reclaimed wood laying around (not sure for what, but I was a big fan)

Cons (more like small quibbles):

-- No AC -- which I know is pretty much the norm in LA. There are plenty of fans and windows you can open, but still takes some getting used to if you live with AC, especially while sleeping.

-- If you have lots of baggage or heavy baggage (like we did) going up not one, but two, small spiral staircases to get to the bedroom can be a bit of a challenge. Might request one of the ground floor units instead.

-- While we didn't have any privacy issues, there are lots of windows, which let in great light, but many of them don't have blinds, drapes, etc. -- so it can feel like there isn't much privacy at times.

-- Given that there is a $110 cleaning fee, we found it a little odd that you're required to wash, dry, and put away all of your dishes before you leave -- or pay an additional $25 penalty.

All in all, we had a great few days, and would definitely stay here again next time we're in LA/Venice. Thanks to Charlotte and John for the hospitality.

Nice stay in Venice

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very nice and we had a wonderful stay. Everything was clean and as described. The location was also pretty unbeatable; a quick walk to the shops and restaurants and a quick bike ride to the beach. Parking on the street was painless.

The reason I am giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is the amount of "rules" imposed despite the *very* high cleaning fee: all trash & recycling must be taken out, all dishes washed and returned to original place, *all* sand removed before entering the apartment, and, my personal favorite: "do not get makeup on the towels or you will be charged". Ok, then don't have all white towels. Or bleach them.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear you had a wonderful stay at the apartment Jessie! To be clear for future guests: the cleaning fee for this large, 2 floor loft apartment is to pay our cleaning lady to clean the apartment - not to do the guests' dirty dishes (there is a dishwasher), or to replace towels that are stained beyond washing and bleaching. We provide Kleenex as well as paper towels in the apartment to take make up off. We kindly ask our guests to wash or brush off the sand before entering the apartment because we want to avoid getting the sand in the shower as much as possible so our pipes don't saturate with sand - an expensive fix!

Clean, comfortable and unbeatable location!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a long weekend trip to L.A. and were lucky enough to find this gem in Venice. John and Charlotte were fantastic hosts and very accommodating. This condo is clean, spacious and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. I think our favourite part was having the bikes available - we used them every day! A great way to explore the neighbourhood and nearby beach/pathways. I hope we can return someday soon :)

Excellent location, bikes a definite plus.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice loft apartment a few blocks from a beautiful stretch of beach. Bikes enabled us to explore surrounding areas up to Santa Monica and down to the Venice pier. Could have gone much farther if we had more time.
