This is a garage. It was not clean. There was mold. Appliances did not work.
Poorly managed property. Very noisy. Location is good. Close to the beach. Stay at a hotel.
Perfect little spot near the beach
This place is amazing. It feels like a great hotel room, with a full kitchen, open to the outside living space and ridiculously close to the beach. Far enough from the commotion of the busy street so it's very calm and quiet, but walking distance to everything. We would highly recommend
It was a great place to stay. Brought my grand daughter to CA for her first trip. So close to the beach with lots to within walking or bike riding distance!
Great we loved it !!!
If your looking for the perfect get away look no further . This place is 10x better in real life .
Apartment very nice and close to beach. But, internet was very spotty and it was difficult to remain online.
Good -- and with a few small improvements could be great
First off, the location is unbeatable. You can walk out the back gate and within 5 minutes be sitting on the beach or swimming in the Pacific. The house is far enough from Venice that it's nice and quiet, but close enough that you can get to the center of the action with about a 10 to 15 minute walk. The apartment itself is nice and well decorated with an incredibly comfortable bed (even though it's a Murphy bed).
As for the downsides... at least during our stay the WiFi didn't work at all. It would take 3+ minutes to join the WiFi network and then all of our devices (both computers and phones) would promptly be kicked off the network, or we would just get error messages saying we couldn't connect to the Internet. Normally this wouldn't be that much of a problem, but we were trying to get updates on whether Hurricane Matthew was going to hit our hometown, so we were a little anxious -- and to make matters worse we got absolutely zero cell signal on either AT&T or Sprint. So anytime we needed to check email, the news, make a phone call, etc. we were forced to leave the apartment and walk several blocks towards Venice. I asked the caretaker about this but was just told that it was probably because so many people in the house were using the WiFi and I should just try again later.
We were also surprised to find that, unlike any VRBO we've ever stayed in before, basics like shampoo, body soap, etc. were NOT provided. So we had to make the 15 or so minute walk to the closest market before we were able to shower. We also had to buy detergent and drier sheets in order to use the washer/dryer -- both of which we ended up leaving, since we were only there for a short while. Again, not a huge deal, but small amenities like would have made the whole experience much more convenient and relaxing for us.
It should also be noted for light sleepers that this is a basement/first floor apartment, and that a toddler either lives right above or was staying right above and would run back and forth constantly, waking us up as early as 6 or 7am every morning. Not sure there's anything the owners could do about that, but it was a serious drawback.
While the outdoor tub was nice, it is located right next to the garbage cans and none of the LED candles were working when we were there (batteries needed to be replaced, I think). All in all, this is a good place to stay if you want to be near Venice/MDR, and with a few small improvements it could really be great.
