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.

Almost, not quite

  • 3 of 5

The best parts: the location is great, the street quiet, and the garden nice.

There were NO major problems, but :

*The wifi instuctions were not there when we arrived at night. Two of the four were working and had to rush out to find internet. It added stress to our short stay. They appeared on the door the next day, but we could have been spared the worry. Little thing.

* The linens and carpet were shabby.

* It hasn't had a deep cleaning in quite awhile. The fans were coated with grime.

* Bathroom upstairs had a drip.

* It took a day to figure out how to use the shower upstairs.

* The sliding glass doors were all fingerprints

+ The light in the downstairs bathroom was not enough to shave by.

To top it off, we got a $90 ticket for parking outside. Arriving in the dark, we didn't see the red curb, which is partially covered with plants. Warning your guests would be an attentive touch.

It was all little stuff, but it affected our stay. Thank you.

The property was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

The home felt comfortable and provided a perfect place to settle down after traveling and exploring what California has to offer. The owners lrovided everything we could need during our stay. It was delightful to have the room and the hospitality that was given. I will definitely be back and will stay at this home again!

Great location, lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 1 week with our 7 month baby, we had a great time. The home is great, we enjoyed the terrasse and Barbecue. Well equipped. The location is ideal and having a whole Foods at walking distance is a huge plus.

Great place run by great people

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying right across from a playground and having a grocery store and drug store only a block away. On our day of departure our flight got cancelled and the owner/operator worked together to quickly to accommodate us by extending our stay with no hassle at all. Highly recommend this property.

Suited us perfectly

  • 5 of 5

More than enough room and privacy for the five of us, me, my husband and three teen-age daughters. Comfortable beds, wonderful bathrooms, great balconies and porches, towels galore, and lots of extras thrown in, even boogie boards. Loved the locale, too -- near the stores yet not feeling citified, and a ten minutes walking distance from the beach. If I could change anything though, I'd get rid of the somewhat depressing carpeting. The couple was as pleasant and helpful as all the other reviewers noted.
