Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Venice - VE Venice Front Cottage

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

The VE Venice Front is a vacation rental home that is the front part of a duplex. it is located on one of the best streets in Venice, just two blocks from the famous Abbot Kinney Blvd. with its many stores and restaurants and less than a 5-minute bike ride from the ocean. City and beach, it offers you the best of both worlds.

This 2-bedroom/1-bathroom redone typical Venice Beach/California style cottage duplex will provide you with the true Venice Beach vacation experience you are looking for. It has a small front yard with seating area, gas BBQ grill and your own fountain. It feels very open and bright as it has many windows including two large windows on the front that let in lots of sunlight and allow you to enjoy the green palm trees in your front yard.

Throughout the house you will find hardwood floors and ceilings with recessed lighting. The living room has comfortable seating area with a flat-screen TV with DVD and sound system. The designer sleeper sofa can sleep another person comfortably if necessary. Adjacent to the living room is a small and intimate dining room containing a large glass top dining table that seats up to six. The kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances, including a large refrigerator with icemaker and everything else you could possibly need. Both bedrooms have comfortable King size beds, 32" flat screen TVs, iPod compatible radio/alarm clocks and walk-in closets. The bathroom has been upgraded and contains a full size tub with shower. This vacation home is decorated with great artwork, including work from local artists.

To the side of the house is a laundry room with your own washer and dryer. The unit comes with high speed wireless internet access, as well as phone service with unlimited local and long-distance calling.

Apartment/house is offered completely furnished with contemporary furniture, high thread count linens and towels.

As most beach properties along the California Coastline, this property is not equipped with an A/C unit. With average beach temperatures ranging from 65 to 75 degrees year round, air conditioning is not generally needed in our beach areas. For our warmer days, each of our beach properties is equipped with portable ventilator fans which, when combined with open windows, allow the fresh ocean air to circulate and cool your property to a very pleasant temperature.

Reviewer Comments:

First, the positives. The location of this duplex is very good. We walked to Abbot Kinney Ave., the happening street in Venice Beach. The shower was wonderful, lots of hot water as well as a great heater in the bathroom. The stove and oven worked really well. The front bedroom bed was very comfortable (didn't use the back bedroom). TV and internet worked really well. Now the negatives. All the surfaces BUT the floors were very clean when we came into the rental. The floors need some serious attention. The rug pictured here was FILTHY. There was deferred maintenance such as no porch light, no bulb in the bedside lamp. A short in one of the bathroom lights that was pulled out of the ceiling. Tiles cracked in the shower and bathroom floor. The place showed some signs of heavy use. IF YOU ARE A LIGHT SLEEPER DON'T RENT THIS PLACE! You are renting a motel room. The families that rented the back unit were very nice, but very loud. They had a great time into the early morning hours. You can hear whatever is going on in the back unit because the walls are thin and the floors are hardwood (sounds of children running on the floors until 11 p.m or midnight.) People had to slam the entry door in the back unit to close it (Apparently). The shades in the front bedroom offer NO privacy, they are see-through. You cannot get ahold of Globe Homes very easily at all, even during office hours! The people we did get to talk to were apologetic and useless. We have stayed at many VRBOs and never had this problem.

Reviewer Comments:

It was ok...nothing fabulous and not terrible. We were frustrated trying to find the house at outside light or anything. Being in a beach community we would have thought beach towels or chairs would be available. Would have been nice if there had been a note on the back door advising where the washer and dyer were...took 3 phone calls to get correct info and could easily have been avoided with just a quick note. Again nothing that ruined the trip, just little things that you could maybe consider for future guests. The house was clean and neat when we arrived and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen had what we needed. I would recommend to a friend depending on what they were looking for.

Reviewer Comments:

The internet & tv was down for 5 of the 7 days, the washer needed repair and the ceiling in the first bedroom on the right was leaking during the rain. I was suppose to hear back from a supervisior Tuesday but never have. I couldn't get any work done due to no internet.

My husband and I ended up scrambling to find a place to stay in Venice. I spoke to Chris and he was more than helpful. I have never had someone work so hard to help us out and save our vacation. I appreciated the attention, understanding and diligence. I will book with no one else.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this house. It's easy to walk around Venice from here, stopping at some amazing food trucks on Abbot Kinney, and on to the great beach.

The house was well set up with comfortable furniture and nice features. We didn't know that it doesn't come with a dishwasher, and the internet cut in and out a few times, but we still loved the place and appreciated the service from Globe. We hope to come back, and would definitely recommend this house!
