Guestbook comments from the owner

Your place was exactly what we were searching. In this residential part of Venice close to every thing. The first time we entered the garden after travelling 23 hours will stay in our memory for a long time, it was fabulous with all these lights welcoming us.

Don t hesitate if you come to Paris to contact us, it will be a real pleasure to meet again with you and share some places to see here (or in the French Province).

It will be so great if we could go back to your place sometime. We ll see what life will propose to us !

Very well-thought-out rental

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment would be perfect for 1 or 2 people. It consists of 3 main spaces: a living/dining area, a central block that houses a kitchen and bathroom, and a bedroom in the rear. So essentially it is one long space with the kitchen and bathroom separating the living and sleeping areas. A pocket door closes off the bedroom from the kitchen. This is the 3rd of 4 individual properties on site--you take a little path on the side of the lot to get to the apartment. There's a shared (but permanently closed) door that leads to the owner's part of the property. This is in the living room by the dining table, but there's no loss of privacy whatsoever. There's a central shared garden on the lot that the renter and owner can share--I always had it to myself. It's a lovely, relaxing space with nice garden furniture and wonderful, abundant flowers and trees.

What makes this apartment so great is all the small touches. Right outside the front door is access to a washer and dryer, a real bonus for a business traveler. The kitchen, though small, is well stocked with high quality cooking tools (All Clad, Calphalon and cast iron pans!) and good quality appliances (nice gas stove, good quality toaster, microwave, etc.). There's a full-size fridge, with lots of condiments left by previous renters, and decent basics in the cupboards. The sink is a large porcelain farmhouse sink. Dishes are decent quality, too.

The bathroom, though small, is tiled throughout and has a fantastic shower with on-demand hot water. There are plenty of towels and other necessities.

The bedroom and living/dining area are the best: they're decorated with wonderful 50s-60s antiques and colorful carpets, so the place has comfort and personality and doesn't feel like an Ikea! I particularly appreciated the memory foam mattress and pillows in the bedroom, and the big wardrobes where I could stash my stuff.

Add to all this a perfect location, with easy parking, bus service just steps from the front door, and easy walk/drive to all sorts of attractions, and you have a near-perfect rental.

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

After spending two weeks here, I can confirm that this listing has far exceeded our expectations. It has an amazing location, kitchen and living area – the backyard truly is an oasis that may tempt you to never leave! Overall, the place was very comfortable and clean. Our hosts were extremely generous and lovely, always easy to contact and quick with their response time. Very helpful with things around the house and suggestions of places to check out during out stay.

Wonderful, quiet get away!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at the lovely property for a week and found it to be comfortable and adorable with all of the amenities we needed. John was a super host who was helpful, friendly, kind, and offered excellent advice on restaurants and things to do. We rented a car and never had any problem on the street within feet of the property. John was generous with stocked supplies like toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, dish soap, shampoo, etc! It is a short walk to Abbot Kinney and less than a mile to the beach. The large king size bed was really comfortable and the private garden area was a dream! Thank you for the wonderful stay!

Best stay in Venice

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a nice stay in the cottage for 5 weeks in December to Januar.

The property is quiet and conveniently located close to Lincoln Blvd. and Abbot Kinney. It has all the comforts and everything we needed to make breakfasts and dinners. The sitting area is comfortable and the garden is quite lovely. The bedroom is comfortable with enough closet space. Also to be mentioned is the good heating of the house, we had quite different experiences in winter time at other locations in Venice.

John was a very friendly host.

Charming Place

  • 5 of 5

The house is charming and has a great vibe! Our stay was amazing and we recommend this pearl in Venice Beach. The place is close to Abbott Kinney and the beach but it's located in a quiete and safe street. The garden was a gem and was good to chill out there. The house has all the comfort if you want to cook and just watch a movie. Everything is clean and new and John is always there to help. Plus the house has a washing machine and dryer! I highly recommend this place!

Charming cottage in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the cottage two months and loved every minute of it! It feels like a home: it has all the comforts and touches of a place well-lived (art and carefully chosen furniture, sound system, good mattress and sheets etc). John was an amazing host, very thoughtful and available. The location is perfect for Abbott Kinney and the beach and it's very quiet. Also great parking opportunities, never had to look for parking spots. The garden is a true oasis of beautiful peace and tranquility, very rare!
