RIGHT ON ABBOT KINNEY BLVD

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Marina del Rey - Bright & Spacious Venice Perch

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom

Located ON Abbot Kinney Blvd (not “adjacent to” or “steps from”), our house is a spacious, comfy perch from which to explore Venice. Drenched in natural light and open to the cool breeze off the Pacific, you’ll feel like a local as you take to the two beach cruisers we’ve provided for you. The private front patio is perfect for grilling out, having a cocktail, or even sparking a little fire in the fire pit. Three big bedrooms make our house roomier than most, with a queen in the master and 2nd bedroom, and twin beds in the 3rd. Two bathrooms, one with a tub, a refinished kitchen and a spacious living room with exposed beam ceilings make this groovy, bright beach pad a total charmer for friends hitting the town or families wanting to kick up their heels.

Some wag just dubbed Abbot Kinney “The Coolest Street in America” (barf). I would say the street Danny Zuko grew up on is the coolest in America, but that’s just me (Rydell High from “Grease” is none other than Venice High School. Still looks the same! Check it out on Venice Blvd at Walgrove Ave). Our house is a five-minute walk from the explosion of shops, restaurants, coffee houses, pilates studios, vintage birdfeeders, fixed-gear, difficult-to-stop bicycles ridden by people in oxford shirts and skinny pants… A few of our Venice faves: Hal’s Bar & Grill. Been there forever. Get the spicy penne pasta. Abbot Kinney Pizza is good for a slice on the sesame seed crust. Best non-trendy sandwich in Venice: tuna with jalapeno from Winward Farms on the circle. They also make the freakin hugest quesadilla you’ve ever seen. Zinque at Abbot Kinney and Venice Blvd is a great spot for a drink. The French Market has the best breakfast in Venice: le cheval. The owner is 100% French; she doesn’t so much help you as she endures you. And you wouldn’t be in Venice if you didn’t have a hefeweizen at a picnic table and watch the clouds roll by at On the Waterfront Café at the north end of the boardwalk.

Venice is a special place, despite the recent hype about how hip it is. It’s complicated and simple at the same time, and it’s so small, the best way to see it is definitely on a bicycle. There’s the beach, Abbot Kinney, Main St, and you’re a quick car or bus ride to Santa Monica, Culver City, the Getty Center, LAX and more. Our cozy house couldn’t be more perfectly located for you to explore Venice and LA. Consider yourself invited!

About Kirk Zipfel

Like most Angelinos, my wife Kristy and I hail from somewhere else (East Coast and Midwest, respectively). But we have called Southern California home for more than 15 years, so we're almost locals (by the standards of locals). We have 3 children: a tween and two under 4. It's kind of like living in a circus.

Kirk Zipfel purchased this house in 2004

Why Kirk Zipfel chose Marina del Rey

Venice is one of the most unique places in LA. The surf, the beach, the culture, the food; it's all here. Venice is also more accessible by bike than by car. In car-crazy LA, that's truly something special. For us, there were no other options

What makes this house unique

The light makes this truly a special place. With the windows open and the ocean breeze drifting through, even checking your email from the couch will seem like a treat.

Lovely home, pleasant stay

  • 4 out of 5
The home is as depicted in the photos: charming, bright, clean, and cozy. The location is great for accessing the Venice area, parking is easy, and LAX is close. I would highly recommend staying at this property/renting from this laid-back, reliable owner.

Cozy Beach Chic Vibe

  • 5 out of 5
I came to town to watch UCLA v Huskies at Rose Bowl and decided to make a long weekend of it and rented this place. I had been to Venice before and wanted my friends to experience the local flavor of Venice. This house was perfect. We enjoyed the patio down below for dinner one night and coffee in the mornings. Kirk was kind enough to allow us to borrow his cooler to bring to the game. We used bikes to cruise around town. Super fun! Very clean house too.

Nice place to stay in Venice

  • 4 out of 5
This property was just as described. We went for a girls getaway (7 of us) and it was spacious, comfy and a great stay while in Venice. Great location. Felt safe and we were able to to walk around to the restaurants on Washington and to Venice Beach. The whole process with the owner was seamless . . . from the reservation, right down to the end. If ever in the area again, would definitely be open to staying here again. Great location to LAX as well.

Owner's Response: Sheba and her party were great guests. They were prompt, communicative and respectful of the property. I would recommend to anyone considering renting to them.

Nice place and location

  • 4 out of 5
The house was comfortable as advertised and the owner was friendly. I did want to say the place wasnt as private as the ad might lead you to think - its the top floor of a 3 unit building. The door to the lower unit is immediately next to the front patio. I only saw the other tenants and we had no issue, but I was concerned when I got there - I was there with a bachelor party. I mention it only because we chose this because we thought it was a single occupancy home.
