"We stayed in the house for a month as part of our USA trip. Being a young family with two boys the house met all our needs.
Location: litterally 3 minutes easy walk to the beach. On your way to the beach you see bars, restaurants, coffee shops, surf shops, convenience stores, beauty salon, florist.... Just perfect. And all of the kind that are so much better then the ones in downtown/boardwalk Venice.
Also just 1 minute to famous canals, great for an evening walk.
The fabulous Abbot Kinney is a 15 minute walk, or: Uber. For a few dollars Uber takes you everywhere, we used it all the time.
Large supermarkets, CVS etc are close too. Finally driving to other locations is easy as Washington/venice/Lincoln Blvds are very close.
The only con about the location: traffic noise. The back of the house is most affected (with two bedrooms). But ine may expect this anywhere in Venice/Santa Monica. It was OK for us.
The house itself is large, extremely well finished/built and very important to us: super clean.
Good to mention that it has 2 bedrooms. The extra third room was perfect for our youngest who sleeps in a travel cot.
But there's no extra bed in there.
It has all the tools and items you need for a long stay. The many terraces ensire you always have a place in either shade or sun.
Although we did miss outdoor dining table/chairs...
Owner Michael ismperhaps the best 'feature'. He's there immediatly when needed, responds direct to questions etc. He goed way beyond what may be expected. He made our stay extra special.
We have nothing but praise for this house. It's not cheap, but if you have the money then this is the place to stay in Venice."
