About Jill Belasco

I'm a native NYer who lives bi-coastally. I love the house - in fact, I built it to be my dream home. I do get to spend a lot of time there - it is my primary residence - so the house is well taken care of. I have heard such good things about the people who are on VRBO that I thought I would give it a shot!

Jill Belasco purchased this house in 2001

Why Jill Belasco chose Venice

I have been in love with the Venice Canals neighborhood since I lived there with a friend in the 80s. When a lot came up for sale in 2000, I grabbed it and spent the next 2 years carefully building the perfect home. The neighborhood is amazing and fun and the people in the area are great. On weekends, I rarely use a car - I can walk or bike almost everywhere. Venice Beach and Marina Del Rey are a few minutes walk and it is so nice to grab a coffee and watch the waves come in early in the morning. It's just a beautiful neighborhood with a friendly and relaxed vibe. You will make new friends during your stay!

What makes this house unique

When I built the house, I wanted the feel and look of comfortable old houses I had visited in the South of France and Italy. The wood shutters, high ceilings, heated marble floors and comfy, squishy furniture make it so welcoming. I love to cook and the kitchen is built for a pro. It's definitely a home - and looking out on the water while I sip a glass of wine at night is priceless.

Beautiful location, house and great host!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Jill's house for a girls weekend and it met every expectation. The house is grand and gorgeous and a great location right on the Venice Canals. Very peaceful and serene. Jill was an amazing host and was very easy to contact if we needed anything at all. All amenities were provided and we couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Jill, we hope to stay again in the future!

Fantastic Place to Stay When You See Venice Beach/Santa Monica/Los Angeles

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic comfortable home with every amenity. Owner is incredibly conscientious and thoughtful; she will not be satisfied unless her guests are completely satisfied. Incredibly beautiful luxury home and great location. Beautiful surroundings, plenty of privacy and still right in the heart of things. Would recommend this place to my best friends and clients. Can't wait to book again.

Centennial, co

Venice Canals, California

  • 5 of 5

Two families with 3 young adults spent a fabulous week at this property. We all fell in love with this magnificent house. Quiet times in the library pursuing the wonderful books, to spending time in the fully equipped kitchen creating new meals. Eating outside by the canal visiting with the people walking by the canal. Or riding the canal in a canoe located on the property.

Located on the picturesque Venice Beach canal, walking distance to the beach, surfing lessons, Abbot Kinney and many eating establishments. In case you do not want to walk there were several bikes to choose from on the property.

We highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet peaceful location with plenty of activities near by. We also recommend this property because the owner truly made us feel at home. We did not want to leave. Karen Mack

Venice Beach is one of the most visited attractions in California. Great people watching and beach front bike path that goes on for miles. Plenty of great restaurants and shopping on Abbot Kinney and in nearby Santa Monica. Easy access to all of Los Angeles.
