About the property

Double Canal Bungalow3Bedrooms,2Bath,Sleeps8,CanalFrontDeck,,2Kitchens

Lounge on the sexy canal front deck on the enchanting Venice Canals. Easy, beautiful walk to Venice Beach, Pier, Boardwalk & Abbot Kinney Blvd. but tucked away in a nook of the canals.

This is an original bungalow built in 1950 yet renovated extensively.

Situated on what 'they' say is the most beautiful canal due to its mature trees, the house is tucked in between a large Chinese Maple & Eucalyptus.

Other than the occasional duck fight, you will sleep uber peacefully at night as there is no through traffic.

French doors open out onto your private stone deck & the quiet canal, while a side dutch entry door adds to the open airy feeling.

One kitchen looks out onto the canals with a dishwasher, washer/dryer, gas stove, garbage disposal & roomy fridge with ice maker. Windows open onto deck for ease in passing food or drinks if entertaining.

High speed power boost wi-fi throughout.

Bedroom # 1 has a large, very comfortable queen bed with tufted headboard, mattress memory foam, forced A/C & heater plus skylight with shutter for light/darkness.

Bedroom # 2 has a brand new queen bed with memory foam, forced A/C & heater and and additional closet space.

Bedroom #3 has a super comfy bed & sink.

Small atrium separates two bedrooms for uber privacy and all bedding is organic 300-600 thread count cotton.

Full futon in master bedroom becomes chaise or comfy full bed which easily clicks back into sofa for day (suitable for 1 adults or 2 children).

Balinese Opium day bed in family room with fireplace off the 2nd kitchen & bathroom makes it cozy for a family or meeting retreat!

Large dining table in family den area could seat up to 6-8.

All gates lock to provide security & the boat dock from which to dangle your feet completes the experience!

A magical rejuvenating space. ;-)

So charming and lovely

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay on the Venice Canals. It's so delightful to wake up and see the canal views. It was especially fun to be there at Christmas and see all the houses and bridges lit up for the holidays. The house itself is quirky and worked well for our family, with separate beds for everyone, and our daughter was completely charmed by the daybed. The hosts are incredibly responsive and caring. I'd love to go back! It's a happy place, for sure.

Allez y les yeux fermés !

Beautiful and luxurious

  • 4 of 5

This place is excellent. The bathroom and kitchen are amazing and were a perfect fit for our party of 5. Everything is within walking distance. We rented bikes. It would be nice to have more than one key to access the property and some kayaks to explore the canal.

Our Bungalow is located on what is left of the canals Mr. Abbot Kinney created when he built Venice in the early 1900s.

When the city acquired Venice in 1933 the canals had fallen into disarray & all of the canals were filled in save for the 6 that remain here today. In 1990 the entire canal area was beautifully renovated and is now one of the most valuable areas in LA County.

We are an easy walk to Abbot Kinney Blvd. which is becoming trendier by the day with it's fabulous restaurants & shopping. Easy walks to the beautiful Venice Pier and crazy Venice Boardwalk with all of its famous street performers, etc.

Bike rentals are close by and we are 10 minutes to LAX, right off Venice Blvd. with ease to Beverly Hills, Hollywood & downtown LA.

You can walk or bike most anywhere for whatever you may need~ store, bank, dry cleaners, etc..

So close to all but so far from the maddening crowds...a true sanctuary from busy L.A. after working or sightseeing.

Important note for visitors not from the area: There is a big difference between places actually on the canals vs. Venice Beach, the walk streets or off Abbot Kinney Blvd. which we call 'the hood'.

The canals is a small self-contained area with limited car access which creates a noise buffer & makes it more difficult for the general craziness of Venice to intrude. Hence the price difference from other Venice rentals that may be grouped together here. We have tried to alert VRBO as to the vast differences in the neighborhoods in the Venice area but their logarithm can only discern so much... The vacation renter is highly advised to run a quick safety check on the area in which they are renting. If you want to stay on the canals, check carefully that the listing is actually on one of the Canals: Eastern, Grand, Howland, Sherman, Linnie or Carroll Canals or the east side of Strongs Dr.
