About Thea Hartley

Been a vacation rental host since 2009. Grew up in California and have been a Local Venetian for over 25 years. I'm a mother and wife and I love what I do and enjoy meeting new people through our vacation rentals and our Cafe ... The Cow's End Cafe. Our cafe is only a 10 minute walk along Ocean Front Walk, stop by and say hello to me, my husband Clabe and the Locals that hangs out at our Family Owned Cafe for over 25 years. I hope you will love Venice Beach as much I love my home and community. If you have any questions or need recommendations, I am here to help and guide you through your vacation planning. Enjoy your stay!

Casa de Tina at Venice Beach caters to vacationers and extended stay visitors from all over the world ... a perfect home away from home. Venice Beach is an eclectic neighborhood. People from all walks of life commingle amongst the sea of locals, tourist and artist from all walks of life. Venice Beach is also known as the heart of Silicon Beach which extends to Santa Monica, Marina del Rey, Hollywood and Downtown Los Angeles, with a focus on the community of entrepreneurs, startup companies (whether it's creative, tech, etc.), accelerators and venture capital companies. We hope that when you visit our beach community that you will embrace Venice with an open mind and that it truly is one of a kind and a unique place to visit.

Thea's apartment in Venice Beach was absolutely perfect and completely charming. It is beautifully decorated with lots of room. Our two teenaged boys were psyched to have their own futons, rather than sleep in the same bed. When we arrived the apartment was spotless. We had a blast walking every day to check out the local shops and vendors. We even walked all the way to Santa Monica Pier one night to ride the rollercoaster! We highly recommend this place!

Really nice and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Thea's apartment by Venice beach.

It was exactly what we wanted and a great location!!

Thea was great and actually let us stay in the property quite late on our check out day. Made having to leave for the airport late in the day so much more comfortable!!
