About the property

3 Bed 2 Bath Private Home 25 Steps to Beach

Enjoy the Venice lifestyle while staying just steps from the boardwalk and ocean! Old charming house, remodeled 3 bedroom 2 bath ocean view home with 4 beds, laundry, full kitchen, large patio and free parking (2 small tandem spots or 1 large spot). Walking distance to restaurants, shops, and all nightlife.

You'll be staying in a charming old home, fully remodeled, located right next to the Venice Boardwalk. This is as close as you can get to Venice Beach, while staying in a house! The living room is very large. The master bedroom with an in suite full bathroom is normal size and has a queen bed, dresser and full closet. The two bedrooms in the front of the house are small and have a full and queen bed in them with closet and hanging closet rack. There is also a twin size bed in the large living room set up as a daybed. Bikes, beach towels, boogie boards and beach toys available for guests to use. Home is occupied by owner when not being rented. Please take care of the home like your own.

This is a great home if you want to enjoy the excitement, art and culture of Venice Beach. As you probably know, Venice Beach community is fun, artsy, eccentric and marijuana friendly. On the weekends there is usually a large drum circle that forms on the beach not far from (you can often hear them) the house and there are a lot of vendors and street performers on the famous Venice boardwalk. It is a busy area and can be loud. There is a lot of eccentric people (many homeless) who hang out around the boardwalk. If you are okay with this, then you will enjoy staying next to the Venice Boardwalk.

Our charming home is more than 100 years old (as are most homes in the area). This is not a brand new house. We extensively remodeled the house but there are characteristics that come with an old home (old windows, old doors, original wood flooring, light switches in odd places..etc.)

Vintage, quirky, perfectly located steps from the boardwalk. It is everything we love about Venice

  • 5 of 5

Loved the character and location of this cool old house! I had family members staying next door at the Venice Breeze Suites, which could not have been any closer, so it worked out perfectly. Also, the house came with two beach cruisers which were great to have.

Ok property, poor family area

  • 3 of 5

I want to first say Maria was a fine host and very accommodating. The property itself is what you'd expect from most Southern California beach homes. It is located a half a block away from the action at Venice Beach, wherein lies the problem. Venice Beach is a city with a huge homeless population, many of them camped around this rental. Most are harmless addicts, alcoholics, or mentally ill, but there are dangerous people amongst them. I spent a good portion of my life in close proximity to the vile underbelly of humanity, so I'm not easily frightened. I just don't want to vacation in this environment, or more importantly, subject my kids or grandkids to this, especially when we're vacationing. There are cameras watching this property, and that should be a tipoff to the issue. If you do decide to enjoy this property, be careful at night. There are much more family friendly beaches in Manhattan, Hermosa or Redondo areas, but rentals are scarce and expensive.

The house is as advertised- very close to beach, boardwalks, restaurants and shopping.

  • 4 of 5

The house is large and spacious with comfortable beds. The lights in the kitchen and master bedroom are tricky as you need to stand on the bed or chair to reach the short chains. We used the bicycles to ride to the Santa Monica pier and other beach gear was provided. We were able to fit our two cars in the parking spaces which was great as parking is difficult to find. Maria was a great hostess and responded quickly to all our inquiries. She also promptly mailed some items we left behind. Thank you!
