Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Marina del Rey - VE Marco Place
Experience the true Venice at our new, 2-bedroom, cottage art house with one-of-a-kind designer furniture and original artwork from local artists.
Located on a quaint, quiet walk street in one of the most beautiful and sought-after areas of Venice, this original, mid-century bungalow is the first art house collaboration between Budman Studios in Venice and Globe Homes and Condos. VE Marco Place features unique designer furniture and original artwork from recognized local artists. The Art House is situated between Lincoln Blvd. and the ocean and surrounded by some of the most beautiful homes in Venice. Abbot Kinney Blvd., with all its shops, restaurants and galleries, is a 10-minute walk away.
This bungalow was built in 1950. The front entrance, off the charming Marco Place walk street, has a small porch with two, vintage Woodard outdoor chairs. It overlooks a large front yard with a white-picket fence and two enormous trees.
You enter the house through the living room, which features beautiful hardwood floors, abundant natural light, an original Italian techno couch, Eames Chairs, a Roger Capron-ceramic-tile coffee table, an oversized 1950's chair and ottoman and mid-century lighting. A beautiful addition to the living room is a window with hanging glass of Higgins Roundelays.
The dinette area and kitchen have a special, white, high-shine flooring that makes the space almost glow with light. The dinette set seats four and is the work of the Dutch designer Friso Kramer.
The front bedroom has two large windows overlooking the front and side yards. It contains a comfortable King size bed and original George Nelson steel-case nightstands, dresser and desk.
The back bedroom is carpeted with imitation grass and has newly installed French doors that open to a blooming magnolia tree and private backyard. It feels like you’re sleeping in nature. It's furnished with a Queen size bed and Raymond Loewy dresser, headboard and nightstands that were designed in the 1960's.
The bathroom has a combined tub and shower and can be entered through the front bedroom as well as the hallway.
This house has all the modern amenities you need. There is a 42" flat screen TV with DVR and DVD surround sound system in the living room. Each of the bedrooms have 32" flat screen TVs and comes with designer, high-thread-count linens and towels.
It also boasts high-speed wireless Internet as well as phone service that offers unlimited local and long-distance calling. The cottage has a home security system, washer and dryer and a private parking space accessible from the alley.
Outside, there's a nice lawn and a large patio area, perfect for an outdoor studio or throwing a fun outdoor barbeque or just relaxing.
As most beach properties along the California Coastline, this property is not equipped with an A/C unit. With average beach temperatures ranging from 65 to 75 degrees year round, air conditioning is not generally needed in our beach areas. For our warmer days, each of our beach properties is equipped with portable ventilator fans which, when combined with open windows, allow the fresh ocean air to circulate and cool your property to a very pleasant temperature.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We could not have asked for a better place to spend Father's Day Weekend! Although there are many wonderful places to eat, visit, and see, we never left Las Casadas!!!
We were able to host a family BBQ Saturday night and a Father's Day Brunch Sunday morning. All ages were entertained...relaxing, reading, eating, enjoying the view and all in the comfort of your cozy place.
Thanks and look forward to our next visit!
