Casa Karmina

Are you run down, exhausted and wishing for a way out? Have you been ground down by the daily grind? Are you sick and tired of being bossed around by life?

Picture yourself lounging on a beautiful covered balcony watching the sun set below the horizon with warm skies of blue and the cool purple hue of the Santa Monica/Malibu mountains melting away in the distance. Imagine the wind in your hair and the fresh salty air, and the comfort of knowing that you've arrived at one of the few Venice Beach vacation treasures literally right on the sand. Believe that you're in the most relaxed and peaceful state of mind you can remember, and know that we want to make your stay in our home the most memorable and special experience you've eve had on a vacation. This is our dream for you: that you become so in love with being...just being here and now in this magical escape from the daily cares of life, that you return again and again to our home, making her your home away from home. We're in the stunningly beautiful quiet season now, with quiet rates as well. We'd love to help you plan your time away from time. Let us make this the dream vacation of your life! We'll let the waves wash your worries away!

We've spent years in the trenches working 60-80 hour weeks grinding away and knowing to our cores the longing for a way out. We know first hand the struggle and the pain of not having enough time for family or even to catch your breath. So after years of hard work and dedication, we've enjoyed enough success to build our dream home on the sands of storied Venice Beach, and because we know first hand how precious, special, and necessary a true escape can be, we decided to share our good fortune with others, and offer Casa Karmina to you as a sacred space to rejuvenate, unwind, heal, and became human again.

Being right at the beach immerses you in negatively charged ions which help to de-stress, enhance breathing and meditation, and detoxify your body physically and energetically.

We keep your hot tub at a constant 103 degrees which is the optimal temperature for maximum relaxation, and combined with the most amazing views in Venice Beach, you'll create perfect serenity and have deep healing sleep.

Casa Karmina's main unit sleeps up to eleven. If you have a larger family group, please ask the owner about possible additional overflow space.

We'd really love to have you visit us, so please call Noel at 310-625-1157, and let us create an amazing vacation experience for you!

Here's a little more about Casa Karmina!

One of the few Venice Beach Houses right ON the sand, Casa Karmina is the perfect spot for your Venice Beach or Los Angeles vacation! Maximize your enjoyment and stay right on the sand. The unit was remodeled just a couple of years ago. Watch the ocean, surfers & sailboats from any room of the house. Dine on your covered balcony/lanai or on the lower patio, right next to the sand. Or just enjoy the view!

Additional Information : There are numerous fun and easy activities just outside your garden gate. Take the six minute walk to colorful central Venice, Muscle Beach, street vendors, artisans & performers. Or take the short ride to Santa Monica Pier & ferris wheel/arcades. And be sure to enjoy historic Venice Pier: make it your morning or evening walk and even teach your kids to fish, just a few steps from the house. You can also take a walk in the Historic Venice Walk Streets and the Venice Canals (yes, Venice was originally modeled after Venice, Italy!) or stay along the beach and walk up to the colorful 'Venice wall' or south to the Marina jetty and watch the boats come and go. And finally, enjoy the fine dining, Italian family style (famous for their 'killer garlic rolls'), the highly rated Naked Sushi bar, your choice of three Mexican restaurants, or simply Starbucks or the local coffee house/deli, 'The Cow's End', all just literally around the corner.

Amenities : Come in from the beach and use our hot/cold outdoor shower. We have lots of beach toys, 5 bikes, two skim boards, a few boogie boards, skate boards, surf boards, and rollerblades. In the winter months (sorry, no longer available as of March 2), ride our sled/saucers down the nearby sand dunes (a favorite for the kids!). As important as your fully equipped kitchen is your desk, with all the essential supplies (don't bring anything!), including wireless internet & shredder (wireless printing also available)--and no guilt as you will be able to multi-task by gazing out onto the beach and the surfers as you work! You may even want to spend a night out on the covered lanai (so you can tell everyone you slept on the beach, under the stars)--yes there are NO mosquitoes here! All linens, as well as beach towels and blankets, rubber slippers and beach carrying basket, are provided.

About Noel Gould

Robin Best is owner and manager of Casa Karmina. Robin and her family also live on the property. This is a part time business, with the entertainment business being her primary vocation. Your host is a former banking/finance executive who now runs KKR Productions and manages the pop duo Karmina. She is dedicated to assuring you have a great time!

Noel Gould purchased this house in 2002

Why Noel Gould chose Venice Beach

I bought this property because the location is absolutely ideal. It is at the end of a block, which means more space in between the property and the next building, a nice side garden, and great views to the north! Also, the view line is directly towards the ocean, with the Venice Pier just to the left, which is lit up at night and beautiful day or night! There is also a stunning view to the left, of the Marina Jetty and the boats coming and going, and to the right, of Santa Monica Bay, Santa Monica Pier and the Malibu coastline and mountains behind. The property is also close to 'Washington Square,' with its many restaurants and shops. The area has a great, positive energy.

Perfect Venice Beach Location

  • 5 out of 5
The location of this property could not possibly be any better. Directly on the beautiful clean sandy beach within just a few steps of the Venice Beach pier and Washington Blvd where you can find a great selection of restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and shopping. And in the opposite direction, about a 10 minute walk…not too far but not too close either if you know what I mean, is the famous/infamous Venice Beach boardwalk which is one of the most amazing, bazar, fun, strange, outrageous, eclectic, jam packed, adventurous, free-spirited, artsy, mix-mashes of everything you can imagine, spots on the planet. Where you can either ride your bike around the perimeter and view the calamity from a distance, or walk right on through and mix it up with rest of the humanity. We like to do both!
This was our second stay at Casa Karmina and it was even better than the first as there have been several upgrades to the top deck and elsewhere since last year’s visit. We rented both the lower and upper units for our party of 11 which included family and friends from way-way back (grade school). My family of 4 took the tower unit and the rest of the group took the main unit. Everyone was comfortable and very happy with the accommodations and the management. At the home we loved the hot tub, hanging out and people watching on the main balcony and top deck, amazing sunset views, baby grand piano (not for everyone, but my son plays and Noel the manager is an amazing pianist), bicycles, parking, direct beach access and of course the location! We ate locally at several restaurants within a 2-3 minute walk and were happy with all of them. Coffee and breakfast was had just about every morning at the nearby coffee shop (Cow’s End) which was always crowded but very good. We also went to a couple of bars nearby, walked to the Venice canals and the boardwalk, biked to Santa Monica pier, went to Hollywood, did a tour, and hung out in Santa Monica at the 3rd street promenade and in Malibu (Duke’s was very good, and where else can you eat lunch while watching a pod of dolphins frolic just a few feet away). All in all it was a great vacation with my best friends on earth and it all went smoothly thanks to this property’s location, comfort, and amenities! Oh, and if you fly in, it’s only about a 10 minute drive from LAX! Thank you Robin and Noel.

Perfect vacation spot

  • 5 out of 5
Our family plus one (2 adults, 3 college age, 1 teenager) stayed here for 8 days in August and had a fabulous time. The location is fantastic - RIGHT on the beach, right on the boardwalk, right by the pier, and close to everything you could want or need. Plus, the unit comes with bikes and boogie boards and everything we needed to take advantage of the fun available right outside the door. Robin and Noel were terrific. They were perfectly helpful and responsive both before and during our stay (and they are both really nice, warm people.) And the unit had everything we needed as well. We cooked most of our meals in and found the kitchen to be generously stocked. There were plenty of towels for showers and for the beach. And there were also books, movies, and music available, though we brought our own and used the great equipment available at Casa Karmina. -- The unit is very comfortable, and the decor is charming. The Wifi worked great as well, and there's even a piano for the musically inclined. All in all, we had a perfect vacation here, and we look forward to the chance to come again.

great summer!

  • 5 out of 5
we have just returned back to belgium from a 7 week stay in the tower unit at casa karmina and from day one til the end we had a most wonderful time. the owners were always available and very attentive to our every need. we came with two little girls and they were spoilt with lots of toys, paddling pool, beach playthings, own little bike etc etc. while the tower is clearly quite small and the kitchen needs getting used to due to space limitations, all that was made quite clear in advance and so we didn't have any bad surprises. and as the terrace is so wonderful and the jacuzzi bliss after day at the beach or surfing, the size of the flat itself becomes less important. thank you robin and noel for making this an unforgettable summer for us, we'll be back for sure!

Breathtaking!

  • 5 out of 5
We came from all over, 3 from Illinois, 1 from Texas, and 1 from Florida for our "40 and Fabulous" girls trip. Robin greeted us at the door and showed us around and gave us some insight of the area attractions. She had the patio doors open with a beautiful ocean breeze rushing in, quite refreshing compared to the 100 degree weather we all came from!

We were so close to everything! We walked the boardwalk for shopping and entertainment, great restaurants were 2 houses down, the ocean and pier are right in front of the house, it was heaven!! Sitting to have coffee in the morning watching the surfers in the ocean and people passing by on the boardwalk was the best.

They were filming a documentary in front of the house and also an episode for Betty White's new show. It was fun to watch. What a great place to vacation!!

Thanks Robin & Noel,
The 40 & fabulous girls
