ADORABLE Fully furnished Cape Cod Beach Cottage with the cutest beachy vibe, located on a street behind Grand Canal waterway in Venice and 1 Block to the Beach and Venice Boardwalk; one of the best 'secret' neighborhoods in LA- This cottage is steps from the canal but not right on the water. A larger cottage (also for rent on VRBO) is RIGHT on the water. Take a look at it before you decide which one to rent. The larger cottage can be found by putting 725388 in VRBO's search window above. This smaller cottage (233542) is an adorable studio with all 4 sleeping in the same room. The other larger cottage (725388) is a one bedroom that sleeps 6 but it's also wonderful for a smaller group. Be sure to take a good look at both cottages before you decide which one to book! They are decorated very similarly. The smaller cottage is a very good value for a total of 4 people, though it's not right on the water. The larger cottage costs more but is also worth every penny if you want that unbelievable ambiance of being right on the water. Both have full kitchens and both come with use of bikes, boats, laundry, and a shared BBQ area.

You can walk or bike everywhere, (but 2-car parking is included) as well as use of 2 bikes, shared boats, outdoor eating and BBQ area, brand new 32' LED HDTV with DVR + DVD player, phone + free nationwide & Canada calling, Hi-speed WiFi Internet, beach chairs, all utilities, linens and all kitchen utensils, plus a laundry room with washer & dryer. You seriously won't want to leave. Queen bed + Twin Daybed + Twin Bed trundle sleeps total of 4. One Mile to Santa Monica, 40 minutes to Disneyland, 15 minutes to Malibu, 14 mins to LAX, Great location! All furnishings brand new, beautiful, clean, light and bright. **Check out my reviews**

.......it really is as cute as I say it is!!

About Carol Hurwitz

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.

Carol Hurwitz purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Carol Hurwitz chose Los Angeles

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.

Adorable beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 days here in February. The cottage is bright, clean, comfortable, and in a wonderful location close to beautiful and vibrant Venice beach! We loved walking along the quiet canals, and biking the Strand with the bikes provided. There are so many great restaurants in the neighborhood, plus markets to stock the kitchen if you don't want to eat out every day. Having the washer/dryer was really convenient, too.

We would definitely book this cottage again!

great location walk to venice beach

  • 5 of 5

This is an ideal getaway, with all the amenities that one would need for a little vacation in California. It was nice to have the bikes to go for a ride on the boardwalk, just a couple blocks away. It was surprisingly quiet and the bed was very comfortable. We walked to dinner, rode to Starbucks and was able to park the car right next to the house.

Quaint and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay. Easy access to the canal for a nice walk, or a boat ride if the water is high enough. Venice Beach is a short easy walk, and loved that there is parking, and even laundry facilities although we didn't use it.

Very comfortable place to stay, even though small, it has everything you need. I would love to return sometime!

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.
