"Having moved from San Francisco to Los Angeles, we needed somewhere to stay for a while until we found our feet in this vast city.
We came across this property and fell in love with the pictures, house and location.
Josh, the owner of the property is one of the nicest people we have met. His home is truly awesome.
Everything has been thought of in the property. The kitchen is so well equipped with everything you could need for every eventuality.
A lovely dinning area over looking the canal, sitting room with piano and fire place, and a separate TV room for those cosy movie nights!
The residence of the canals are very welcoming and lovely as well. You do get to meet a lot of people just sitting in the back yard/garden by the canal.
The master bedroom up stairs has a fireplace, and amazing walk in closet and master bath with steam shower. There is also a terrace off the master bedroom with views of the canals.
There is also a guest bedroom, family bathroom and mini gym on the same floor.
For those that need to do a bit of work there is an office area as well, with desk and chair over looking the canal.
The roof deck, great for sunrise and sunset, even better watching them in the 6 man hot tub which is kept at a lovely 102 degrees .
There is ample parking also, enough for 3 cars.
Venice Beach - just over 1 block away! superb beach sunsets...
The house is close to everything as well. Most things can be achieved on foot, but this is LA so everyone drives. You are close the Abbot Kinney - restaurant and shops, Washington beach restaurants and shops, 1 mile from ocean parks Main street shops, and 3 miles from Santa Monica pier.
Recently opened is the new train link which goes from Santa Monica to Downtown LA.
Josh was always on hand if we needed anything, and he always was there to help us out as well. Everything you could ever need in a home has been thought of... tea, coffee and an honour pantry was provided for arrival.I love this place and am sad to leave. For what was only suppose to be a 2 month stay, we will be leaving Josh's amazing home 4 months after we moved in.
I really can not speak high enough of this home, and Josh. The setting, location is truly magical and amazing.
Thank you Josh for letting us use your home while we looked for our oasis in Venice.
