Shawnee was fantastic
Shawnee was there for anything we needed, would rent again.
BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL and SERENE
My husband and I stayed in this beautiful home for a month and loved every minute of it. It was close to everything but far enough away from the Venice Riff Raff. Behind the gated walls we found a truly special environment. Shawnee, our host, was wonderful and keeps her property immaculate putting so much thought into every detail. We felt nurtured as soon as we walked in the door.
We also found the neighborhood charming and safe and never had a problem finding offstreet parking.
We look forward to coming back again the next time we are in Southern California.
Thank you Annetta and Jim. It was wonderful having you stay in our home. You were wonderful guests and I look forward to having you return!
Comfortable Home Away from Home
This Zen Retreat home served as our home away from home for 3 months. It is modern, quiet, very private, has every appliance, item to cook with that you may need. The home is light and bright and the gorgeous home finishes on the inside flow seamlessly out to the outdoor living space that is perfect for private sunbathing, reading a book, taking a dip in the spa or having an outdoor meal. The beds , bedding and towels are very clean and comfortable and the property inside and out is maintained meticulously. Our host and owner Shawnee is top notch; an amazing human being that anyone who has the honor to stay here, will have the pleasure to get to know. Shawnee is so kind, so thoughtful and so accommodating. I want to thank Shawnee for everything she did for us and all of the little touches she went out of her way to do, to make us feel extra comfortable. Any prospective renters should have no hesitation whatsoever in staying at this special home.
My wife and I stayed in this beautiful retreat in the heart of Venice. It was an oasis, extremely clean and so relaxing. The host was attentive and available any time we needed her. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting a beautiful environment while still be close to the excitement of what Venice has to offer. The photos don't do this property justice-the ambiance is exquisite.
Zen is the perfect way to describe the space
Shawnee met us at the door to give us a guided tour of the home. It had everything we needed to feel comfortable and relaxed. The kitchen had all the accoutrements we’re used to, and we do a lot of cooking, so we were able to make dinner for six every night, and gourmet breakfasts every morning. No yogurt and granola here! She has a coffee maker and a Keurig, too. We even had everything we needed to bake Christmas cookies one day.
The beds were really comfortable, and the pillows were great. I’m a pillow snob, and I’m usually grumbling after the first night. Not this trip.
Towels seemed new and fluffy and high end. She even has beach towels to use with the hot tub, which we took advantage of a few times.
I’m looking forward to staying in Shawnee’s home again.
Peaceful oasis owned by an accommodating host
Let me start by writing that all the other reviews are 100% accurate.
The house the owner acquired in the 90s has been completely updated and beautifully designed. The grounds are completely private, with natural wood and stones decorating the wall-enclosed property.
Shawnee was extremely accommodating. Her office is in a guest house in the back of the property (separate property entrance) and so was able to meet us when we called to let her know we were on our way from LAX. The week we were in Los Angeles was in the middle of the 2018 heat wave. She provided us with several Vornado fans to use through the house. She was also not strict as to checkout time.
The next time we're in town, I just hope this property is available.
Also Nearby are Abbot Kinney, Venice Beach and Boardwalk, and Santa Monica Pier and amusement park.
