About Alice Burston

David and I have lived for several years in Venice. I'm a California native and David joined me from England in 2003. We both lead busy lives but have been so happy in running our new Vacation Rental business. We have met wonderful people from all over the world. We love Venice and hope you will too. You will never be bored in Venice. You can veg out or be in a whirlwind of vacation activity and you never know what movie star you might see! Venice weather is great too!

Alice Burston purchased this house in 2007

Why Alice Burston chose Los Angeles

We built our vacation rental in Venice Beach because we love it here! Venice is a unique community with lots of interesting people, artists, musicians and just friendly Californians in general. We are a community in the midst of gentrification but trying to keep our ethic past intact. What's not to like, 30 min. (if not traffic) into the heart of LA and a 10 min. walk to a beautiful beach. Weather you can't beat!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The owners are so super nice and very welcoming! I rented this place with a few friends while we were on a business trip and every time we had a visitor they couldn't believe how amazing it looked. It truly felt like a home away from home. We have all agreed to use this exact same place when we return next spring.

Cozy house in a great location with all the amenities we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for 5 days during fall break. We wanted a place near the Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach and the Venice Canals. I was worried the location was a little bit further from the beach than we would have liked but it worked out much better than I expected. My 15 year old son and his friend easily skateboarded down to the beach every day. If we needed chairs or boogie boards at the beach we drove. We also rented bikes and rode up and down the boardwalk. The convenience to Whole Foods and CVS was a plus. The house was a quick 10 min drive to Santa Monica Pier and 3rd Street Promenade where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. We also spent time in Hollywood, West Hollywood, Griffith Park and downtown LA. We were able to access the I-10 easily and get to our destination in 30-45 minutes.

The house was cozy. We ate in a few times and the kitchen had everything we needed. We were traveling with two teenage boys and it was nice for them to have a separate bedroom and bathroom downstairs while we had our own room and bathroom upstairs. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable; I had the best sleep I have had in quite some time. I do wish there were screens on the patio doors. It felt great to let the ocean breeze in but I was worried about bugs so we kept them closed.

We had no problems getting a parking space in front of the house and moved our car on street sweeping days to avoid getting a ticket.

If we return to the area, we would definitely stay here again.

Great Neighborhood, Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

While there was stuff to nitpick about - it was overall a good choice for our needs. The owner AND the property manager were both extremely helpful and very responsive.

The best part - the location. The beach was within walking distance, and being around the corner from Whole Foods was another plus. Santa Monica was also a short drive away, and we were a few minutes from I-10.

Just remember to raise the blinds at night so you can let the coastal air into the house, which, together with the ceiling fans, can keep the house comfortably cool.

Adorable Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 and myself enjoyed our stay. We found everything we needed in the home and enjoyed the easy instructions on working the TV remotes and other appliances. The location is close enough to the Beach and the rental property included sand/beach toys, boogie and skim boards and beach umbrellas if needed. The location is great for running to the drugstore, pharmacy, and grocery store. CVS and Whole Foods are located right around the corner. The house is fully equipped and has a nice layout and design. We enjoyed the upstairs hot tub bath/large shower. We really enjoyed grilling and dinners outdoors on the patio. Being within walking distance to a nearby Starbucks is also an added bonus! We would definitely stay here again.

A comfortable place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our recent stay at the property. With easy access to the Santa Monica Pier, Venice, and a short drive to northern beaches it was a busy three days for our family of four. It was a nice launching pad and recovery area for our daily activities. A nice dinner and games on the pier, some boogie boarding/ beach time/ shopping in Santa Monica, sightseeing in Venice, and a short trip up the coast utilized the bulk of our time. Whole foods is easily walkable, however we used their delivery service a few times as we were exhausted. Owners of the property were very accomidating and caring. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the patio greatly. Found parking to be fairly easy. Nice park on the corner. Great trip.
