About the property

Loft Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Office, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Situated within AK Live/Work, a crisp modern mixed-use building that received awards from both the AIA/LA and the Westside Urban Forum in 2007, Space B affords the ultimate urban lifestyle within the relaxed coastal town of Venice. Located just blocks from the beach and hovering above renowned Abbot Kinney Boulevard, this exceptionally designed, crafted and furnished apartment is adjacent to a host of one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants.

Punctuated with planted courtyards, terraces and balconies, Space B boasts wonderful indoor/outdoor relationships and spatial transparency. The result is a serene inner world, bathed in natural light, which draws off the vibrant energy of this exceptional pedestrian oriented street. Space B is white plaster, inside and out, with floor to ceiling glass that visually connects indoor and outdoor spaces, folding views of courtyard gardens and Venice's unique streetscape into the experience of the space.

In the evening, looking up and down the palm lined street and across the rooftops of the lively beach town, one can imagine being on a ship coming into port, a notion that is only reinforced by the thoughtfully arranged spaces within.

Just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

This is a great space in a perfect location. Our group of four adults loved being "where the action is" in downtown Venice, but because of the design of the apartment, we were not bothered by street noise. Michael answered all of our questions about area restaurants and other attractions promptly and, though he was out of town during our visit, made sure that his assistant met us and served as a more than adequate backup. Because of the stairs, this is not a place for anyone with climbing issues, but otherwise, it is terrific. The two indoor parking spaces were a huge plus. We hope to return.

Clean and Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 4 days here in Venice. The location was excellent for walking the shops on Abbot Kinney. The beach was just a short walk away. Santa Monica was a 5-10 minute drive or $10 Uber. Michael and Mary were very attentive and easy to work with and our deposit was promptly refunded within a week.

We would stay here again!

Stunning modern oasis

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful space! I highly recommend staying here on your visit to Los Angeles! My family and I rented the space for a week through Thanksgiving and enjoyed every minute – we are counting down to our next trip! We comfortably shared the space with 6 people. The architecture and design is cool & hip just like the street it’s located on– it’s much more than just an apartment. It’s airy, light, spacious and clean – green nooks with beautiful succulent plants – you move constantly between outdoors/indoors within the space. The bedrooms are roomy, the kitchen has all the appliances you need, the dining room is perfect for a Thanksgiving meal and my favorite part - the rooftop with an outdoor fire place is ideal for enjoying a book in the sun or a cozy drink in the evening! The apartment is conveniently located on one of my favorite streets, Abbot Kinney – fun shopping, excellent coffee & delicious food (highly recommend Gjelina’s) and a close walk/bike ride to the beach. There is also room to safely and conveniently park a car and bikes – super convenient in LA. Thank you to Michael (the fantastic owner) for sharing his amazing home with us. I certainly hope to be back soon!

Nothing but Raves for Space B

  • 5 of 5

I had the great fortune to be able to spend two full months in Venice at Space B this summer. I can't recommend the home or the folks associated with it strongly enough: from the thoughtful outfitting (everything you need and nothing more) to the beautiful decor to the owner and his team, this is an above-and-beyond vacation option.

One thing worth mentioning is that the photos really don't do the innovative nature of the home justice. The layout is a bit too complex to describe easily in photos or even in a floorplan. The layout allows you to move between indoor spaces and an outdoor courtyard for a real LA feeling.

Fantastic Space

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our extended stay at Space B. The location is hip and full of energy. It was so fun to be on Abbot Kinney, truly one of the coolest neighborhoods in LA. Space B is a gem- the owner is meticulous in every detail in the home from the linens to the electronics, the high end cookware/utensils in kitchen to the spotless interiors and exterior areas. We enjoyed all the bright natural light throughout the day and the indoor/outdoor living--just the way one imagines LA living to be. Anything we needed was attended to immediately. Honestly, we cannot say enough good things about Michael and his amazing home!

A generous environment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment feels like a house. It is filled with natural light & we had a gentle breeze through the whole place with the internal courtyard doors open day & night. It is very secure & offers an oasis of calm.

The owner/designer has been very generous in attention to every detail from the faultless building design to the cutlery, china & the bed linens, it is all lovely to touch and use, everything works, the kitchen is well stocked with lovely equipment and the beds are very comfortable! The atrium gardens are fascinating, beautifully colourful and like everything else- just right.

The owner is very kind & attentive but not imposing. The information pack is informative & thorough - not least the restaurant list provided. He recommended the best coffee bar & it is the best coffee I have had in the USA.

The place is spotlessly clean & the effortless to keep clean.

Parking is great & secure & my bike is down there too.

The second bedroom is across an internal atrium & so can be very private- our teenage son sleeps there before between surfing & skating in the venice skate park.

It is situated on the best restaurant & shopping street in LA & very dangerous to live so close to an exquisite bakery. The beach is just down the road & is a lovely stroll with or without your surf board, but you are stepped back from the craziness of the venice beach carnival atmosphere.

What's not to like?

We will have been here a month & will be sad to leave.

Would highly recommend it to anyone.
