About Joanne

We have maintained this property for myself and my family for over 30 years. I have been thrilled to renovate and update the beach rental unit for my tenants. I hope you'll come and enjoy it soon.

There is lots to do here in this neighborhood and the rest of Los Angeles from the Freeways. If you have skates or skateboards bring them (world class skate park).At the house we have boogie boards, bikes, balls and one beginner surf board.

REMEMBER YOUR CAMERA THERE ARE A LOT OF INTERESTING PICTURES TO TAKE HERE, and our place is located perfectly for all that is North, South , East and West. SantaMonica on the North, Marina and the Canals,skate park South, West the ocean, boardwalk,bike path, East Main street,Abbot Kinney,public golf course, Freeways. Restaurants in all directions 6 within 2 blocks. Whole Foods and Ralphs close by. Perfect for a romantic get away or for a small family. Kids have a great time here, we love kids we had 3 ourselves,

now on their own.

'----come and be our guest-

Joanne purchased this house in 1967

Why Joanne chose Venice

The house is a pretty Calif. bungalow built in 1905's and has been remodeled to keep the charm of the turn of the century. It's like walking into the past with the convienence of the 21 century.The location is ideal; walking distance to all that is

offered on Santa Monica's/Venice beach area N. (including the Recreation Pier + still walking distance to Venice's rec.beach S.area yet far enough away from Venice rec park to be a quieter neighborhood. There are buses with in a block and we furnish bikes.We are situated near so many great restaurants. We furnish a lot of extras to our guests in the way of athletic equip. toys and games. I knew this would also be an ideal location for people on vacation. The weather is always good, not too hot and rarely cold (for me cold is under 72 degrees,) One guest, a professor suggested a walk in the morning and at sundown because the negative ions that come off the ocean are very healthy for us.

What makes this house unique

This turn of the century house has high10' celings and built in cabinets. The large moldings was just one of the reasons; I wanted to be close enough to walk home from the beach for lunch or nap time when the kids where small. The weather is the best (about 75 degrees most of the year warmer May-thru Aug). However it has been in the 90's this October. There isn't the bugs problem the tropics have. Cultural and artistic developement are everywhere. I love walking to the corner and having the beach there and still having access to a big city and culture with all that is offered here in LA. I really enjoy having the ocean breeze coming in and the sun shining. I love skating at sunset, and biking up and down the coast. One can have their whole experience without a car. Abbot Kinney has unique shops that are not chains stores with the some old stuff., New train by the Santa Monica peir to take you downtown L.A. for the Cathedral, Disney Music Hall, Alavera Street, and musceums.

For the athlete we have bikes, boogie boards,skim and surf board,balls(basket,volly,foot,tennis,paddle tennis,socker(all equip for your use here and on the beach). You can parasail over the ocean. You can even go on line and reserve surf lessons or paddle boarding.

Cozy, safe and close to the action

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Venice was memory-making thanks to Joanne! The property is lovely - well kept, clean and inviting. A great queen bed for us parents at one end of the space and a unique room at the other end for our 2 teenagers. The kid's room had built in double beds and cabinets, as well as lots of storage space, games and books to entertain them. The garden space beckoned for us to sit and relax or enjoy a meal. We used the bikes that were provided to ride up to Santa Monica Pier and down to the Venice Canals along the beach boardwalk (much better than moving our car from the provided parking spot). The beach, playgrounds, skate board park and other attractions are a short walk away. Many restaurants and shops are walking distance from the property too, including the hip Albert Kinney area. We'll definitly stay here next time we visit LA.

Excellent vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay at this rental! Joanne was very welcoming and accommodating, making my stay even more enjoyable than I could’ve hoped. I was able to walk to the beach in only a few minutes and did not have to cross any street to do so, I loved being so close to the water. The 3rd street promenade is only 10 min away, I was able to do some birthday shopping and meandering about; enjoying all the nice shops and many talented characters that place has to offer. I walked down the boardwalk to the Venice Pier and then to the Santa Monica Pier. Another time I took the bike, which Joanne provided me with, passed both piers and was able to see much more of the beach and passed by the Venice skatepark, which was AWESOME! I never went surfing while I was there but having the board if I did want to was nice as well. There was plenty to do while on my trip to Venice but what really made the whole trip worth while was having such a wonderful rental home to come back to. It really was a home away from home.

Lovely host. Very friendly and helpful. House is very cosy and close to the action of Venice.

  • 5 of 5

Joanne welcomed us with open arms, a fridge full of food and fresh flowers in the house. She was very accommodating with our early arrival following a 15 hr flight, allowing us to check in early to recover. Joanne even drove us to the local supermarket for extra food supplies which was really appreciated.

The house was perfect for us and our three kids. A lovely home to come home to at the end of the day. Plenty of board games, balls, boogie boards and bikes to keep us all entertained and great location.

Ticks all the boxes for a great family holiday.

Iowa City

Exactely what we wanted!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO experience and it was great! We chose Venice Beach for the Christmas Holiday (2017) because my daughters wanted somewhere warm and away from Iowa. We went to the VRBO website and found Joanne's rental.

The pictures and the location made the place just what we were looking for in our holiday experience. We were a hundred yards from the boardwalk and the beach. We had no big itinerary planned prior to our arrival, and we ended up just hanging out in the immediate area. There are shops and restaurants and coffee shops within walking in just about every direction.

Our children are ages 14, 16, 18, 20 and they had a great time. The neighborhood is clean and friendly and we had no problem letting them come and go as they please. (They always came back because the rental has very good Wi-Fi.)

Joanne has the place clean and fully stocked with towels, pots and pans, pillows and blankets, a washer and dryer, grill, toaster oven, microwave. It is like using someone's home.

We had a great stay!!

Owner's Response: Its so much fun when the teans come because they have so much fun and their is so much to do in and around Venice and we are close to all of it. These kids used the bikes and boogie boards and they tried many of the local places to eat and could walk to them. They where wonderful guest and I would love to have them back and thanks for the picture I am going to put a book together of these who where here and some day we will have a good collection of guest. I should have started the book 5 years ago.

Perfect to visit Venice Beach and Santa Monica

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay at Joanne's home. The bikes are useful to visit Venice and Santa Monica. The appartment is well equiped and there is even some toys for the kids in the bedroom. The AC works well and that's a good thing because you can close the windows when you sleep, the street outside is noisy. There was some beers and water in the fridge when we arrived, it was very appreciated. We were able to park our Chevy Tahoe in the parking space.

I have nothing wrong to say about the house, it was just perfect for our needs and the owner Joanne was very nice with us!
