About the property

Enjoy the laid-back Venice lifestyle in this uber stylish mid-century mod home

Step back in time Mad Men-style in this sleek, recently renovated mid-century modern house in Venice/Mar Vista. Tastefully decorated with period-specific furniture and antiques as well as rare, original music and film memorabilia, this unique home is like a living museum of 20th century pop culture. Property is two miles to the beach.

Hardwood floors, new casement windows, long, galley-style kitchen. Newly remodeled bathroom with beautiful glass tile, spa tub, rain shower, and vanity with double sink. (Bathroom fan even has bluetooth capability if you want to listen to music while you take a shower.) Backyard features an outdoor deck, tea table, a cactus garden, a small fountain and a fire pit.

Get in touch with your inner Danny and Sandy as you walk by world-famous Venice High School where they filmed the movie, "Grease", a mere half block away. A stone's throw from everything - the trendy restaurants and shops on Abbott Kinney, the beach, even Costco!

Parking. Cable and wireless internet. Laundry facilities. Even comes with a beach cruiser bicycle! What more can you ask for?

Feel free to contact me with any questions about this amazing space or for any suggestions about the local area!!!

About Spencer Aaronson

I'm a long-time Venice resident. I'm a traveller myself and have been the benificiary of incredible hospitality in the many places I've had the good fortune of visiting, so I'm only too happy to share whatever local wisdom I have with you. In my opinion, the Zanja Shangri-La provides the best of both worlds for the visitor - relative privacy and respite from the hustle and bustle of Venice/Santa Monica proper, but close enough to the beach and all the other fun stuff.

Spencer Aaronson purchased this house in 2008

Why Spencer Aaronson chose Los Angeles

A lot to love about this neighborhood. The place is a stone's throw away from everything - the trendy restaurants and shops on Abbott Kinney, pretty Marina Del Rey, hip, historic Venice beach, even Costco! And now there's a lot of activity around neighboring Mar Vista as well. Lots of new restaurants and night spots cropping up on Lincoln and Washington boulevards. You won't be lacking for things to do.

Cute bungalow close-ish to Venice Beach

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for someplace to have casual debrief time after meetings in Los Angeles, and this was perfect. 3 of us stayed in 2 bedrooms and we were able to have other people over to visit. Place felt very airy and spacious even though it wasn't huge. Very thoughtfully stylish and well maintained. Great little backyard with hammock and chairs for yet another area of us to hang out. Master bedroom had queen bed for two, I slept in 2nd bedroom and slept on the futon, which was a bit hard on the hips. Should have not been so lazy, and should have set up the air mattress instead, so that's on me. Very close to lots of great restaurants, shops and not too far (mile-ish?) from Venice Beach. We'll come again.

Beautiful and Very Clean!!!

  • 4 of 5

House was beautiful and in a great location. Very updated kitchen and everything was SUPER clean Very close to Venice Beach and Santa Monica Pier. Owner was very helpful on suggestions of places to eat. EVERY meal we had was AMAZING thanks to him. Master bed was a little uncomfortable and kind of loud. I didn't want to move during the night, afraid to wake up my partner. It should be mentioned in the description that the owner lives on the premises and the backyard was shared. Might not matter for some people, but for others it should be disclosed prior to booking. We still had a great time visiting the area and the house was VERY clean and beautiful.

Owner's Response: Hi Laura. Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry you had an issue with noise in the bed. I will certainly make note and address that for future guests. I always encourage our guests to communicate directly with me in real time if they have any such issues. In the future, if you do ever stay with us again, please let me know so I can tend to it during your stay.

All we hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here with our family of 4. The kitchen and bathroom are luxurious! It was nice to have a safe enclosed space for our son to play in the back yard as well. Spencer was very helpful and accommodating. The property is conveniently located and very quiet. Highly recommend it!
