PERFECT Venice Beach Location!!! (This is our new vacation lodging whenever we're in town)

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I had a girls trip planned and did not have a rental car. Many local friends mentioned what a GREAT location we were in and we couldn't agree more! We rented the bungalow in the back, utilized the bikes for evening boardwalk cruising and the short trip up to Santa Monica, walked 2 blocks over to Abbott Kinney and used the Starline Tour bus (which Carmen mentioned to us) to hitch a ride into LA and do the touristy thing for 2 days. The beach is literally 3-4 blocks from the house!! The bungalows are close and with everyone's windows open you can hear others moving about but everyone was always respectful of the time of day and friendly in passing.

Carmen has thought of everything! Don't worry about packing beach towels, hair dryers, etc...she even had an ironing board. She lives just down the street and was readily available to us if we had any questions. Carmen was ever so helpful and went above and beyond, down to offering us a ride to the airport as she would be headed that way to pick up her sister on the same day as our departure.

I can't say enough about the wonderful experience we had at this lit'l bungalow. We will ABSOLUTELY be keeping in touch with Carmen to stay here again!

This property was the perfect location to walk to many great shops, restaurants, and the beach. The owner was friendly and very easy to work with. It was very neat and clean and the perfect size for 2. We will be staying here again next time!

This place is great!

My wife, baby daughter and I stayed in Carmen's bungalow just before the Thanksgiving holiday. What a refreshing, wonderful stay we had in this house! The feel of the house and the neighborhood is so relaxing and laid back. The pictures don't really capture just how charming it is. When we arrived Carmen gave us the scoop on a great pizza place within walking distance, on Abbott Kinney... the street is hopping with activity even though the neighborhood surrounding is quiet. Carmen was really friendly and helpful the whole time, she lives right down the street... not intrusive, just there when you need her. In fact we locked ourselves out with a crying baby inside and luckily we got a hold of Carmen who came right over.

The house is within walking distance from the boardwalk and beach, one of my favorite spots in all of Southern California. We had a great time there and in Santa Monica, Malibu, it was a great home base. Thanks for a great refreshing little vacation at your charming house, Carmen!

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a three night stay at this adorable cottage. It had everything we needed...we biked all over, super convenient to Abbot Kinney shops, restaurants and coffee shops, yet was on a quiet street. We would like to say here every time we visit!!

Super Clean and Convenient!!

  • 4 of 5

This little house is great, very cute inside and out, well supplied and close to everything! The cottage is on a street that seems to only get the residents, so it is pretty quiet. It is very clean and bright, I would highly recommend it! Thank you Carmen!

The Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

What a great location! Hike in the Santa Monica mountains, walk by the sea or listen to the waves crash from the bedroom. Super clean wirh a fully stocked kitchen and a bedroom furnished with designer linens. Shopping within walking distance. Local restaurants range from California cuisine to the best coffee-chic establishments.

We loved it!
