About the property

2 Bedroom Ocean Views Steps to the Boardwalk

This beautiful 2 bedroom is just steps to the sand in Venice beach, located at Muscle Beach, and just a block from Windward Ave, you can't beat this location!

You'll love the huge loft bedroom upstairs with an ocean view!

It's a really nice house, with a big patio that is shared with the 2 other units in the building (also vacation rental places).

Downstairs is set up like a studio apartment. There is a queen bed and a full bath, and a mini fridge. Upstairs is a living room with a comfy sectional couch and a full kitchen. There is also a bathroom on this floor. Upstairs is a large loft bedroom with a queen bed and another sectional couch.

The location of this apartment is amazing! You're just a few steps from the sand at Venice Beach! You're also very close to Marina del Rey, and Santa Monica. Muscle Beach is the practically right outside your door, and you can easily walk or ride a bike through all of Venice, and Santa Monica. All the shopping, nightlife, restaurants, and everything that the area has to offer is right outside your door. Including the Santa Monica Pier, the 3rd Street Promenade, and some of the best restaurants that Los Angeles has to offer!

It's easy to walk or ride a bike to most places in Venice and Santa Monica. Taxis are plentiful and bus lines have stops close by.

Good location but property needs a lot of TLC!

  • 1 of 5

This property is located only steps from Venice Beach. Unfortunately, the cleanliness and maintenance of the property was very poor. Although we were advised that cleaners would be at the property in the morning of our arrival to clean it, the kitchen floor was sticky and the floors throughout the property were so dirty that we had to wear our shoes the entire time. The walls were in desperate need of a fresh coat of paint or at a minimum, a good cleaning. The pictures on the website truly do not show the wear and tear of this property. Take a few days off from renting the property and get the place cleaned up!

We are a family of four and stayed for six nights. We were left with one towel per person and two wash cloths to share between the four of us for almost a week long stay! We actually had to go shopping for our own towels! The price of the rental is obviously based on location. The property description notes that this is not a party house. In it's current condition, I don't recommend this property to families, especially if there are young children crawling around.

It was nice to have parking included although arriving at night would make it very difficult to locate and park in the very very tight parking spot.

There is great potential in this property but it needs a lot of attention before I would recommend it to any of my friends or family members.

Not too clean

  • 1 of 5

Let’s see was given the wrong lockbox combo. The door to the back hallway was propped open, turns out that’s because the lock was broken. Getting into the parking space was an adventure and a half. The towels that were supplied were damp, it’s OK I dried in the dryer after a 30 minute search revealed that the laundry was an unmarked closet in the garage. Also try to arrive before dark then you don’t have to worry about the homeless folks in the alley so much.

If location is ALL you are looking for, than this is your rental.

  • 3 of 5

Upon arrival, all seemed good. A bottle of wine was left on the table, very inviting. We stepped out to enjoy the area beach but upon returning discovered we were allotted one towel per person. Was not intending on doing laundry for our two day stay. Discovered our car, which was parked in the garage, had been urinated upon by the neighbors who were out on their balcony.

Owner's Response: We always provide 2 towels per bed. So yes, the standard is one towel per person. Which I think is perfectly sufficient. But if guests need more towels, I am always happy to provide them. The guest never called to ask for more towels. I'm very sorry to hear if the guests in the other unit urinated on your car. Obviously this is not something we condone. We take complaints like this seriously. Although there is no way for me to prove what happened, I can assure any future guests that this has not been a problem in the past, and I doubt you will experience anything similar. Guests in all 3 units in this building are generally respectful and kind.

Overall decent place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was set up pretty cool and served its purpose. It was clean and in a good location if you are into the whole Venice Beach thing.

There are pros and cons- Pros- location is good. Apartment is spacious. Place feels safe and secure. It was clean. You can do laundry on site. Kids loved the lofty bedroom. Neighbors were quiet.

Cons. Mildew in the main bedroom bathroom on the ceiling . Furniture could use updating Screens were ripped in a few windows so I couldn't leave them opened and there is only air conditioning in the main bedroom, since we really only slept there it wasn't much of an issue. If the neighbor is home forget doing laundry as you will not be able to open the closet to get to the washer. Parking is a total pain. The alley is narrow and you have to maneuver around a bit to get into the spot however I was ok with that to have secure free parking.

Justin was very easy to work with and the apartment served its purpose and was how explained. I thought it was overpriced for the accommodations but you are paying for the location I suppose.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Just off the boardwalk, right in the heart of all our favorite hangouts. The property is easy to access, well managed, and properly cleaned. Comfortable and relaxing to kick back after a sunny day at Venice Beach!
