About Joanne

We have maintained this property for myself and my family for over 30 years. I have been thrilled to renovate and update the beach rental unit for my tenants. I hope you'll come and enjoy it soon.

There is lots to do here in this neighborhood and the rest of Los Angeles from the Freeways. If you have skates or skateboards bring them (world class skate park).At the house we have boogie boards, bikes, balls and one beginner surf board.

REMEMBER YOUR CAMERA THERE ARE A LOT OF INTERESTING PICTURES TO TAKE HERE, and our place is located perfectly for all that is North, South , East and West. SantaMonica on the North, Marina and the Canals,skate park South, West the ocean, boardwalk,bike path, East Main street,Abbot Kinney,public golf course, Freeways. Restaurants in all directions 2 at the end of this block. Whole Foods and Ralphs close by. Perfect for a romantic get away or for a small family. Kids have a great time here.

'----come and be our guest-

Why Joanne chose Venice Beach

The house is a pretty Calif. bungalow built in 1900's and has been remodeled to keep the charm of the turn of the century. It's like walking into the past with the convienence of the 21 century.The location is ideal; walking distance to all that is

offered on Santa Monica's/Venice beach area N. (including the Recreation Pier + still walking distance to Venice's rec.beach S.area yet far enough away from Venice rec park to be a quieter neighborhood. There are buses with in a block and we furnish bikes.We are situated near so many great restaurants. We furnish a lot of extras to our guests in the way of athletic equip. toys and games. I knew this would also be an ideal location for people on vacation. The weather is always good, not too hot and rarely cold (for me cold is under 72 degrees,) One guest, a professor suggested a walk in the morning and at sundown because the negative ions that come off the ocean are very healthy for us.

What makes this house unique

This turn of the century house has high celings and built in cabinets. The large moldings was just one of the reasons I wanted to be close enough to walk home for lunch or nap time from the beach was an advantage when the kids where small. The weather is the best (about 75 degrees most of the year warmer May-thru Aug). There isn't the bugs problem the tropics have. Cultural and artistic developement are everywhere. I love walking to the corner and having the beach there and still having access to a big city and culture with all that is offered here in LA. I really enjoy having the ocean breeze coming in and the sun shining. I love skating at sunset, and biking up and down the coast. One can have their whole experience without a car. Abbot Kinney has unique shops that are not chains stores with the some old stuff.,

For the athlete we have bikes, boogie boards,skim and surf board,balls(basket,volly,foot,tennis,paddle tennis,(all equip for your use here and on the beach). You can parasail over the ocean.

Cozy, safe and close to the action

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Venice was memory-making thanks to Joanne! The property is lovely - well kept, clean and inviting. A great queen bed for us parents at one end of the space and a unique room at the other end for our 2 teenagers. The kid's room had built in double beds and cabinets, as well as lots of storage space, games and books to entertain them. The garden space beckoned for us to sit and relax or enjoy a meal. We used the bikes that were provided to ride up to Santa Monica Pier and down to the Venice Canals along the beach boardwalk (much better than moving our car from the provided parking spot). The beach, playgrounds, skate board park and other attractions are a short walk away. Many restaurants and shops are walking distance from the property too, including the hip Albert Kinney area. We'll definitly stay here next time we visit LA.

Excellent vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay at this rental! Joanne was very welcoming and accommodating, making my stay even more enjoyable than I could’ve hoped. I was able to walk to the beach in only a few minutes and did not have to cross any street to do so, I loved being so close to the water. The 3rd street promenade is only 10 min away, I was able to do some birthday shopping and meandering about; enjoying all the nice shops and many talented characters that place has to offer. I walked down the boardwalk to the Venice Pier and then to the Santa Monica Pier. Another time I took the bike, which Joanne provided me with, passed both piers and was able to see much more of the beach and passed by the Venice skatepark, which was AWESOME! I never went surfing while I was there but having the board if I did want to was nice as well. There was plenty to do while on my trip to Venice but what really made the whole trip worth while was having such a wonderful rental home to come back to. It really was a home away from home.

The owner was very accommodating on arrival. We had gotten into town early so she rushed to get the place clean quickly and let us check in early and hit the beach. The BEST part about this place is the amenities she provides. Bikes for everyone, boogie boards to use, beach toys, kites, and even the house is stocked with toys and games. Our kids, 10 and 12, loved it! It is just one block to the beach and easy access to the bustle of both Venice and Santa Monica as it sits literally sandwiched between the two. The home is cute and quaint with everything you need. The owner even had a bowl of juicy oranges and granola bars for us when we arrived. So welcoming and accommodating. Parking was tight but there was space in the back of the unit for our big SUV. We jostled a bit when we need to get the bikes out but it was easy enough. The only drawback to this location is the street noise. It sits right off of Pacific so the traffic noise drowns out any beach seagulls or quiet you might want sitting on the back patio. At night and early morning can be really loud especially since you need to have all the windows open to let a cross breeze through the unit. My kids didn't mind and I had earplugs so it worked out okay. Lovely home and would definitely stay here again!

We have rented this apartment twice. It was a perfect end to summer. Joanne is a wonderful host. The apartment fit my family of five. We came just with swim suits and Joanne provided everything else including boogie boards, towels, bikes and umbrella. The house is in a great location. You can walk to the beach, Abbott Kinney and down Rose Avenue. There are great restaurants all within walking distance. We did not have a car. Venice Beach has great energy and a beautiful beach. We can't wait to return.

Great old house close to beach but.....

  • 3 of 5

Our stay was great as the owner was very nice and accommodating, lots of extras with bikes and boards and even kites. Just a word of caution if you are there during warm weather. The bedrooms were warm at night, and even though fans were provided, we had to open up all the windows, this led to our only complaint, noise. The house is next to a busy street and there is lots of traffic noise with the windows open during the night and early morning. Also the next door neighbors came home loud and drunk a couple of nights (2am wake up) We should of known there was a noise issue with the rental when we found ear plugs in the dresser drawer.

Owner's Response: This has been the warmest summer we have ever had. We will get and air-conditioner for the unit. Most people do not have a problem with noise here. There are ear plugs as I try to have everyting possible, ( I have been on a cruse ship with someone who snored and it was not fun I slep on the deck part of one night until I could get some ear plugs.) We also have band-aids, razors etc. Come and have fun with the bikes, boogie boards, sports balls etc.

The house was great and had just enough room for the four of us, including two teenagers, and is well stocked with everything you would want in a vacation rental. Very short walk to the boardwalk or beach, don't forget to take one of the boogie boards! Or take a ride on one of the bikes to Sant Monica Pier, Main St., Abbot Kinney or a long ride on the bike path. A short drive to Rodeo Dr., Hollywood Blvd and Malibu beaches. One of the highlights of our trip was a day trip to Catalina Island, we tried Snuba and took a Segway tour of the island. If we had any questions about the area or needed anything in the house, Joanne was always there to help. The best thing was the extras, used the bikes almost everyday and the boogie boards several times. Great place to stay, especially if you have two teeagers.
