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!!
