About Kristin Jones

I live in the neighborhood and own a few other rental properties in Venice. I bought this classic Beach Bungalow in Venice and remodeled it from top to bottom, filled it with designer furnishings and had no vacancies! I tried to produce a space that people would feel happy in. Everything is new, clean, light and bright with a beachy vibe and cheerful feeling.

Kristin Jones purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Kristin Jones chose Venice

Venice is an incredible California experience and the Venice Canals are the best Venice has to offer. You are one block from the beach and the Venice Boardwalk; walking distance to the Venice Pier and fabulous restaurants and boutiques in Venice and Marina Del Rey. This particular property is surrounded by multi-million dollar homes so that gives you a feeling of both security and pride of ownership in the neighborhood.

What makes this cottage unique

2 Beach Cruiser bikes + use of shared boats (red Canoe and Blue Row Boat) to use in the canals, beach chairs + towels, plus outdoor eating area with BBQ shared with other cottage. You can walk along the Venice Canals and go to breakfast at Joni's Coffee Roasters or Noah's Bagels or stop in at the corner Starbucks. It's a healthy lifestyle where you'll be encouraged to walk or bike wherever you go- like the weekly Farmer's market. Sunbathing, Sailing, Biking, roller-blading, surfing, gallery hoping, shopping, celebrity watching, you name it, we've got it here in Venice. Public transportation is just 1/2 block away. It's a very peaceful neighborhood but all the action of Venice is just minutes away. Check out the sunset every evening at the pier then go to the Baja Cantina for your after sunset margaritas- or Coldstones for ice cream, then walk home!! Or go to the 3rd street Promenade in Santa Monica and the brand new Santa Monica Place mall for movies, restaurants, and some of the best shopping in LA. Take your kids to the Santa Monica Fun Zone and Pier after a day at the beach, then eat at Bubba Gumps- a family friendly restaurant on the Pier. Do not miss a ride on the famous Carousel on the Pier, the very same one featured in many Hollywood movies including 'The Sting' starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford.

Great Apartment in Venice Beach

  • 4 of 5

5 minute walk to the beach and a great little apartment. It has everything that we needed and was immaculately clean. I would rent again!

charming place!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this cute, clean little efficiency apartment. Great detailed instructions left for us tenants! It was great to meet nice tenants (from Germany) renting the bigger house. It’s only one full room (besides kitchen/bathroom). Quick walk to the beach! The claw foot tub is a little shaky when standing in it for shower and the lamp needs to be replaced (no switch, makeshift tape switch). I would definitely stay there again! Thank you!!!!

Location,location, location!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are lucky enough to snag this adorable cottage you will not be disappointed! The location couldn’t be better. It’s only 1 block up from Venice Beach and the famous boardwalk where you can watch people in the skateboard park, grab a drink at The Venice Ale House or Whaler patio, check out Muscle beach or watch the sunset from the stretches of white sand beaches. This cottage is small but all we needed just the two of us. It’s attached to a larger cottage that faces the canals! What a great way to wake up, grab a coffee and go for a morning stroll along the canals. One of the best features of this cottage is it comes with 2 bikes to use. For us this was the best way to get around. It’s a very bike friendly place with bike lanes everywhere. You MUST take a cruise down to Santa Monica and check out the Pier. There is a bike path that runs the whole way along the beach. It’s spectacular!

The kitchen was fully stocked, the bed was comfy and there was a cute little shared outdoor patio area.

Thank you so much for an awesome stay! We loved it here and will be back in the future.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for 1 week in September. A perfect base for Venice Beach and Santa Monica.

Made great use of the bikes to get around and as far as Manhattan Beach.

Apartment was compact but was as expected. Everything provided for a comfortable stay.

Only downside was as it was a shared outdoor terrace with the larger property (the large property overlooks the canals while the smaller property which we stayed overlooked the driveway). Although this downside is only down to personal preference.

I would definitely recommend the property.

Very nice and reasonably priced.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage worked well for my wife and son and I. We enjoyed the accessibility to the beach, and we took advantage of the bikes. The cottage was priced well below a local motel room with the added conveniences of appliances and modern laundry facilities.

You are in the famous Venice Canal district so walk along the Canals on your way to breakfast at Joni's Coffee Roasters, Noah's Bagels or stop in at the corner Starbucks. This cottage in on the street that backs up to Grand Canal, it is not right on the water. There is a larger cottage also on this property that also rents out for vacations It can be accessed by putting 725388 in VRBO's search window above It's a healthy lifestyle where you'll be encouraged to walk or bike wherever you go and you have the use of 2 free bikes to do just that.

Take the bike path all the way from Venice to Malibu and stop in at the historic and award winning Santa Monica Pier, take a spin on the famous Carousel that appeared in 'The Sting' with Paul Newman and Robert Redford. Everywhere you look are landmarks and beautiful scenery. Nothing beats a drive up PCH at Sunset to hit any number of great restaurants in Malibu. Back in the Venice marina area try Stand-Up-Paddle Boarding at any number of local places that rent by the hour.
