About the property

3 Bedroom Apt in the Heart of Venice Beach

Decorated by a Venice artist, you'll feel comfortably at home during your stay at this charming 3 bedroom. The master bedroom is downstairs, and features an Eastern King size bed. On the main level, there is a bathroom, an accommodating living room and dining room, as well as the kitchen which will be stocked with all the utensils you'll need to cook a meal - pots, pans, forks, knives, etc. It's all there for you.

Additionally, there are 2nd and 3rd bedrooms on the main level, both with comfortable full size beds.

Outside there is a patio with a fire pit and a BBQ grill for you to use.

All bed linens and towels are provided for you. And there is a washing machine and dryer available onsite for you to use.

Guests have access to the entire 3 bedroom unit, the outdoor patio, and one parking space.

I can meet the guests or provide self check in instructions. If the guest needs anything else, I'm always available!

The location of this apartment is amazing! You're just 2 blocks from the sand at Venice Beach, and only 2 blocks from the restaurants and nightlife of Winward Ave, the heart of Venice Beach! You're also very close to Marina del Rey, and Santa Monica. The famous Muscle Beach just a few blocks away, and you can easily walk or ride a bike through all of Venice, and Santa Monica. All the shopping, nightlife, restaurants, and everything that the area has to offer is right outside your door. Including the Santa Monica Pier, the 3rd Street Promenade, and some of the best restaurants that Los Angeles has to offer!

It's easy to walk or ride a bike to most places in Venice and Santa Monica. Taxis are plentiful and bus lines have stops close by.

Very dirty

  • 2 of 5

Although the space wasn't exactly what we expected we had a great time and loved the closeness to the beach. Cleanliness was an issue that is hopefully being resolved but didn't stop us from having a great vacation.

Solid location, not kid friendly though

  • 3 of 5

Solid location with easy access to beach and Abbot Kinney although not a great spot for kids as immediate vicinity of house felt a bit shady at nighttime and Venice is generally not as kid friendly as Marina del Rey or Santa Monica. Everything went well and as expected.

Worst ever! Do NOT believe the pictures!

  • 1 of 5

When you drive up to the address and say "no, that can't be right", there's a problem! Pictures don't look like the real stuff. Parking was questionable at best. Once we got the actual correct code to open steel gate, we needed the "gardeners" help to park the car, as it was so tight we had to pull in at a specific angle and hope (I guess) that another car could pull in next to us without hitting our car.

"Master bedroom with king size bed on lower level" really means = big bed in the basement. House smelled musty, but "master bedroom" smelled the worst.

A few little gnats were around which was weird because the cleaning people apparently just left. There was no where to put our luggage, so we started unpacking them on the floor- until I realized how ridiculous it was.

And NO way, was it a block from the beach!

If you don't feel safe (the area /neighborhood was horrible), including your vehicle - and you question how clean it is... do you stay?

I don't think so!

It was supposed to be a wonderful surprise for my daughter- for her 25th birthday, having our family reunited for some beach fun.

Everyone was so disappointed in this place, we could only go up from here!... the hotel that checked into was lovely.

Thank God!

Owner's Response: I am sorry these guests did not enjoy the house. We've hosted hundreds of people who enjoyed their stay. It gets professionally cleaned before/after every stay, and if guests have any issues with the cleanliness I am happy to send the cleaners back. The master bedroom IS downstairs and the house IS 2 blocks from Venice Beach, as written in the listing's description. The property, including the parking area, is enclosed and secure. Venice Beach is a popular and touristy area. All walks of life hang out in Venice, and we've never had issues with security in the area or at the house. If any future guests have any concerns, feel free to reach out to me.

Comfortable house and great location.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. It's definitely a beach pad and not a place you'd find in House Beautiful but very comfortable. The location is great, a short walk to Abbot Kinney and the beach. Both before we got there and the one time when we were there that we needed to get in touch with the landlord because we couldn't figure out how to get in he was easy to reach and helpful. We'd stay there again for sure.

  • 5 of 5

Our host Justin was great!! Place looks exactly like described on the photos as well . Me and all my friends were super comfortable through the time being . I love the location , just block from Venice beach that we all love to visit once in a while for a proper relaxation . We were visiting during busy weekend time and i was afraid there will be a problem with Parking but there's a parking spot as well which made it very easy and convenient . We definitely will be back & i recommend to everyone who is interested!!!

Beautiful Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Communication with Justin was good and effective. The apartment is very well located and was very clean. I would come here again if you want to stay with a group at one place instead of taking several hotel rooms.
