About the property

Orchid Bungalow,1 Bedroom+1 Convertible futons,1 Bath,1 Parking spot (Sleeps 3)

Thank you so much for your interest in the Orchid Bungalow!

A very special space on the Venice Canals, we are a block & half walk to Venice Beach, Venice Boardwalk, Venice Pier & Abbot Kinney Blvd.

This original bungalow built was 1950 & has been renovated extensively.

**Please note that there is construction next door. This may mean that there is construction work going on next door (during legal LA building hours). No further discounts or cancelations past regular cancelation policy listed here will be offered.**

Situated on what 'they' say is one of the most beautiful canal due to its mature trees, the house is tucked in between a large Chinese Maple & Eucalyptus, almost @ a 'T' view where the canal connects with Eastern Canal.

Other than the occasional duck fight, you will sleep peacefully at night as there is no through traffic.

French doors open out onto stone deck & the quiet canal, while a side dutch entry door adds to the open airy feeling. The apartment is the self-contained canal front unit of a duplex.

The canal front deck is a magical transformational refuge where you'll want to sip coffee, wine or simply relax.

A magical space. ;-)

A full kitchen with dishwasher, washer/dryer, gas stove/oven, garbage disposal & roomy fridge with ice maker, looks out onto the canals & windows open onto deck for ease in passing food or drinks.

Full stone bathroom with comfy soaking tub. Skylight gives great day light throughout.

Sleeping arrangements:

Bedroom has a Queen bed with tufted headboard, forced A/C & Heater unit & skylight with shutter for darkness.

Full futon in bedroom becomes chaise or comfy full bed and easily clicks back into sofa for day.

Absolutely no visitors are allowed onto the property.

We only rent this space for guest's quiet enjoyment of the canals & each other.

For day guests or if you wish to have anyone stop by to visit, please book the full house version,, as we do not allow non registered guests onto the property for any purpose.

Location, film shoots, parties or events are to be arranged prior to arrival with separate location/event agreement depending on crew, equipment or # of people involved. Legal action and/or fines will will be levied for any unauthorized filming or commercial shots of the property or use of the property for commercial purposes.

Why M. & M. chose Venice

You cannot be anywhere more beautiful in LA and still be soo close to the beach & a happening scene. period.


What makes this bungalow unique

Our deck provides an amazingly rejuvenating view of the canals along with cushions for comfort and relative privacy due to its slight elevation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Orchid bungalow is an absolutely adorable place. We loved the colors and style of the place immediately. The deck was so inviting and wonderful-perfect for morning coffee and evening wine. Since the canals are a tourist attraction as well as a neighborhood, friendly people do walk or jog by on the sidewalk next to the deck. It's centrally located to Abbott Kinney, the Boardwalk and Marina Del Rey-the location and ambiance couldn't be better! And M. was terrific. Very available and responsive by phone and text and her directions were thorough. I am always very happy to have an actual person involved and available with any online rental we do. Thanks M! We enjoyed your sweet place.

Wow...what a fabulous stay, place & hood!

  • 5 of 5


Every time you go somewhere new, it's a lottery.

One never knows when picking a vacation rental.,,,

But this has been our best win ever!

We found a gem!!

Just a relatively short ride from the airport, especially for LA..... bonus The accommodation was not only very comfortable. It had everything we needed and the owner was charming.

When Mike (the owner) called to check if everthing was ok, he was very helpful and genuine.

We asked him for some local restaurant and food suggestions, Loved the variety of his recommendations. Only had time for a couple of his list, here were our favorites:

Erewon super fancy designer Grocery Gjelina Butchers Daughter Great food all within walking distance, We appreciated the insight. The location couldn't have been better. Also easy walking to Venice Beach and everything that goes with that. Muscle Beach, The Boardwalk etc etc

Do yourself a favor, Rent a bike and ride a up and down the coast ......Marina Del Ray, Santa Monica. A real highlight.

If you are a walker they are within walking distance, but if time is an issue and you want to cover more locations the bikes are an awesome option.

The accommodation was actually so comfortable we felt like we didn't need to go anywhere (unlike some other places we have stayed).... great to just relax especially if you just finished a long flight like we did. What a great mix, if you are motivated or not this accommodation covers both ..... I personally enjoyed recognizing a few movie location in the area. Beverly Hills and Malibu are reasonable uber ride away. So much to do and see in LA . Staying here was holiday in it's self, regardless of all the attractions!!! A PERFECT setting for recharging our batteries and then getting out and about to reduce the number of items on the bucket list.

Wish we had more time as always.

That's the case with every vacation.

Fabulous Location

  • 3 of 5

We had the bungalow for a week as part of our world tour and stayed in amazing places around the world.

The bungalow was Spotlessly clean and in a fabulous location.

The bungalow needs some updating as it is tired and tatty.

So much furniture in a small space.

The bed is very uncomfortable with a topper on the mattress that is smaller than the mattress, appreciate mattresses are very personal.

If the bungalow had an update and new bed it would be perfect as the deck outdoors was a perfect retreat.

'100% Californiacation, you never want to leave again'

  • 5 of 5

This place is a gem right on the canals, perfect for a venice vacation you can explore everything from here but you have your own private sanctuary. M is the perfect host, and makes you feel home away from home even more! we went here last year before our wedding in vegas, came back for our anniversary and will definitely book another stay here very soon!

Amazing property, amazing owner.

  • 5 of 5

Meticulously clean and comfortable. Walking distance to the beach and boardwalk although the canals are a destination all on their own. Thank you for being so detailed and welcoming us so warmly.

A delightful and cozy place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and comfortable. Loved having the canal in the "backyard" and enjoyed sitting in the sun on the back patio. Maria was kind and helpful. Would recommend staying there!

Nearest Airport
6 Miles
Nearest Motorway
7 Miles
Car: not necessary

Our Bungalow is located on what is left of the canals Mr. Abbot Kinney created when he built Venice in the early 1900s.

When the city acquired Venice in 1933 the canals had fallen into disarray & all of the canals were filled in save for the 6 that remain here today. In 1990 the entire canal area was beautifully renovated and is now one of the most valuable areas in LA County.

We are an easy walk to Abbot Kinney Blvd. which is becoming trendier by the day with it's fabulous restaurants & shopping. Easy walks to the beautiful Venice Pier and crazy Venice Boardwalk with all of its famous street performers, etc.

Bike rentals are close by and we are 10 minutes to LAX, right off Venice Blvd. with ease to Beverly Hills, Hollywood & downtown LA.

You can walk or bike most anywhere for whatever you may need~ store, bank, dry cleaners, etc..

So close to all but so far from the maddening crowds...a true sanctuary from busy L.A. after working or sightseeing.

Important note for visitors not from the area: There is a big difference between places actually on the canals vs. Venice Beach, the walk streets or off Abbot Kinney Blvd. which we call 'the hood'.

The canals is a small self-contained area with limited car access which creates a noise buffer & makes it more difficult for the general craziness of Venice to intrude. Hence the price difference from other Venice rentals that may be grouped together here. We have tried to alert VRBO as to the vast differences in the neighborhoods in the Venice area but their logarithm can only discern so much... The vacation renter is highly advised to run a quick safety check on the area in which they are renting. If you want to stay on the canals, check carefully that the listing is actually on one of the Canals: Eastern, Grand, Howland, Sherman, Linnie or Carroll Canals or the east side of Strongs Dr.
