Recent Venice reviews

  • Can't beat the location

    "March was a lovely time to be on the bay in Venice. The location is wonderful -- relaxing, filled with birds and an occasional dolphin siting, and plenty of outdoor space for our dog to run. The house itself, although older than other places we've stayed, is very clean and comfortable. The rooms are good-sized, closets are large, and the kitchen is well-stocked. With only two bedrooms we wondered how we would manage a 3 day stay with our son and his family, including two big teenage boys. We brought an air mattress from home that one slept on in the living room along with his younger brother who loved the fold out chair. Space was not a problem. They really enjoyed fishing from the dock. Since our return, Bryan has followed up with an email identifying minor fixes that will make future renters more comfortable. We enjoyed getting to know Bryan and his family and although he lives next door, we saw them only occasionally, providing a wonderful sense of privacy. I would heartily recommend the cottage and we are looking forward to returning next year."

  • Spacious, clean, renovated, great location.

    "We were surprised by the spaciousness of this home - lots of room for everyone, even if you had 6 people. It was clean, uncluttered, and seems to have been recently renovated in key areas (mainly bathrooms). Despite some of the older reviews, there ARE two full bathrooms, and 3 real bedrooms - one HUGE master bedroom with a full bath (shower, no tub), and a suite of 2 bedrooms (one with a queen bed, the other with 2 smaller beds) with it's own full bathroom.There is a very large living room, a decent kitchen, and dining area. The large screened-in porch overlooks the back yard. There is a garage with washer/drier and bits of outdoor equipment. The location couldn't be better. It is 2 short blocks to the Venice beach entrance. It's also a nice (but long) walk to the Venice town center, along shaded Venice Avenue. Only 3 things bump this rental down from a 5-star rating: First, the scarcity of basic supplies in the house. Other units we've rented in recent history have had paper towels, basic condiments in the fridge this sort of things handy. There was some of this for us - dishwashing detergent, shower supplies, that sort of thing, but it was pretty sparse outside of the bathroom. If these things are in the garage somewhere, we didn't find them. Also, there are some minor repairs needed - one of the screened-in porch panels lacks screen, and so this is really an open porch. Various knobs are loose or missing, and some broken/missing tiles in the kitchen are just covered in a small rug. Lastly, there is a lot of evidence of mice (droppings) in the garage, and we heard odd noises at night. These down-sides are relatively minor, and ought to be easily rectified."
