If you are considering staying in Venice, keep in mind that you'll never find a parking space. Located in nearby Mar Vista, less than two miles from world famous Venice Beach and with abundant available street parking. Located less than two miles from world famous Venice Beach, our private guest house is situated at the rear of our property and includes a half bathroom and kitchenette. An outdoor, hot water shower is just at the rear of the guest house and next to a Jacuzzi hot tub amidst lush landscaping with a serene zen-like sensibility. French doors at the front of the guest house open to a Spanish-tiled patio and fountain. Guests can enjoy their morning coffee or evening snacks and drinks al fresco seated at the umbrella-ed patio table adjacent to the Spanish fountain. Guests may easily enter and exit the property from a gate at the front of the property.

Guests have use of the entire guest house, which is completely detached from the main house. The guest house is nearly 600 square feet and has a combination of hardwood and stone tile flooring. A large sofa pulls out to convert to a queen-sized bed with a new Memory Foam mattress outfitted with 400 thread count Egyptian cotton linens.

Bar stool style counter and eating area are adjacent to the kitchenette which is equipped with a refrigerator, sink, coffee maker, microwave oven, electric tea kettle, available hot plate, plates, bowls, glasses, coffee cups, tea pot, and utensils.

About Bay

Easy going hostess!! Enjoy your stay.

I am an experienced traveler who tries to visit a few new places every year. Recent travel has included Peru, Russia, Canada, Mexico, India, Cambodia, Vietnam, Turkey, Argentina and Brazil plus numerous places around the United States. As a traveler, I know what I need on the road and try to anticipate the same for my guests.

Bay purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Bay chose Los Angeles area

Our guest house was chosen by National Geographic's Traveler of the Year for his June 2014 stay in Los Angeles. We are located in Mar Vista, less than two miles from Venice Beach and in a neighborhood with abundant street parking. Learn more. The guest house is perfectly situated in Mar Vista - Venice Beach close - we hear the fog horns at night and get the ocean cooled air. The property is located in a quiet residential neighborhood and is less than a five minute walk to major bus lines to the beach and elsewhere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful tranquil spot in the middle of LA's Cacophony! Bay has the sweetest guesthouse. Totally secluded and serene. NOTE: if you are traveling from the east coast and have jet lag and find yourself up at 5:30am...i highly recommend making coffee and watching the sun come up from the Hot Tub in the back yard!!! My girlfriend and i had a much needed, relaxing mini vacation! Thanks Bay, we will be back!

Nice, but! It's an office space that offers a fold out bed.

  • 3 of 5

In a good location for Venice beach (but as a smoker, you can not smoke with in the park. All very anal to me) and buses into L.A. town. (Chinese theatre and stuff.) It has a lovely living area. The outside shower is fine. Bay is an attentive host, without being in your face. The kitchenette has a micro wave, so don't plan on cooking a meal. Fine dining is beyond the area.

One-week stay in LA

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at this lovely guest house. Accommodations were excellent, and the owner was quite friendly while still respecting our privacy. Neighborhood is close to the beach, which was precisely where we wanted to be. I highly recommend this wonderful guest house to a single person, or couple. You won't be disappointed.

3-Day Stay in L.A.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this guest house 3 nights while visiting the city. The neighborhood is nice and safe, and the guest house is behind the main house with entrance from a gate. The landscaping is beautiful, and there is a private jacuzzi/hot tub for your use (although we didn't find time to enjoy it). The owner is absolutely lovely and was available on site or through text to answer a few questions we had. She provided a guide with recommendations for dining and entertainment. She also cleaned our dishes and tidied up a bit when we were out during the day. The A/C is great, just be aware (like it says in the rental description) that the only shower is just OUTSIDE the back door. It is completely private, below a lemon tree, and the water felt great. The idea was a little strange to us at first, but it was comfortable and safe. There is a step inside the guest house between the kitchen and living area. We rented a car and found parking on the street very easy. The property is very close to attractions in Venice, Santa Monica, and Culver City, and driving around this area helped us gain a quick understanding of the neighborhoods. We would return!

Amazing accommodations, great location and wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

I travel every other week and have always stayed in hotels. After staying at this guesthouse I have no desire to go back to hotels! The guest house is so cute and quite spacious. Everything you would need - big HDTV with lots of channels, large living space, kitchenette and bathroom with nice finishes. The bed is a pull-out, but it's a very comfortable memory-foam mattress. The outside shower is a nice change from the norm, it has hot water and is right next to the amazing hot tub! The guest house is very private and on a very cute street.

Bay is an amazing host who has been doing this for many years. She puts extra attention to detail everywhere - with snacks in the kitchenette, lots of books/brochures on things to do in LA, variety of pillows, instructions on how to use everything! Parking is on the street, but never had any issues getting a spot right in front of the house. I definitely plan on staying here again.

Charming and spacious guest house in upscale single family home neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is a great alternative to staying on a busy street in a chain motel with your car parked far from your room. Bay is a very accommodating host. Remember that you will be sleeping on a sofa bed and showering outdoors in the VERY private tropical garden in back of the cottage. We stayed during warm sunny weather in LA and enjoyed the hot tub right next to the outdoor shower. The cottage has very high end finishes, nice kitchenette, hardwood floors, and very clean. The kitchenette is furnished with everything you need to fix your own breakfast, even coffee beans and a grinder!
