Recent Private Homes reviews

  • 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."

  • Perfect!!!

    "If you are looking for a house that has all the comforts of home and one that is clean, spacious and relaxing then here it is! We throughly enjoyed our stay. I'd like to point out that the beach is a brief walk from the house and is not crowded. The pool was a huge hit for our family. The town of Venice is within walking distance from the house with a variety of wonderful restaurants and cute shops. The owner was a pleasure to work with. We hope to be back!"

  • Excellent Rental!

    "My family recently rented this house from Bryan for a week for our family reunion. The house is in a really lovely, safe location (on a street with many other fine homes) and is exceptionally maintained. There are instructions for renters posted throughout the house and it is very clear that the owner cares about the maintenance of his property and keeping it in great shape and well cared for. Bryan was very accommodating with our unique sleeping arrangements (7 adults, 3 singles...) We spent most of our time on the lanai, and much of it in the pool. The lanai area is very large and spacious, the pool is really clean. There were absolutely no issues whatosever with our stay but I'm confident if there were, Bryan would have taken care of them immediately. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this house again or to rent from Bryan."
