Simply Love

  • 5 of 5

A truly wonderful 'home' for my visit to LA, and absolutely my new favorite. This property was perfectly appointed with the most beautiful, tranquil atmosphere (the outdoor area was my go-to retreat during my stay), and it also happens to be perfectly situated in Venice with a quick walk to Abbott Kinney or the beach, and then back to what truly felt like 'home.'

The owner, Melissa, has created something very special here. I certainly look forward to coming back on my next trip to LA.

Epic Stay in Venice!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of five friends and we were instantly impressed with this beautiful retreat! There are all sorts of nice shops and restaurants right down the street, and it was great to visit a few of them. The property itself was very roomy and the backyard was pleasant and serene, like an oasis. The icing on the cake was the luxurious hot tub which was super relaxing.

This place was very clean and well maintained and the beds were very cozy to sleep in. We’re already booking our second stay!

Great space but communication issues

  • 2 of 5

I am unable to give details on the issues we encountered due to VRBO's content review guidelines. To sum up my experience, the house is beautiful, very clean and well-equipped with a full garage full of linens and cleaning supplies, and in a very convenient location. However when we arrived we were not given the accommodations we had reserved 8 months in advance (both the lower unit and the apartment above) because part of the house had been double-booked. Melissa was very apologetic and worked to remedy the situation to the best of her ability. However, my group was not satisfied with our experience overall and I would recommend that future renters follow up on their own -- rather than relying on the VRBO pre-trip email to confirm your stay.

The Abbot made our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

A few of my friends and I pitched in to rent the Abbot when we came across it online. We were psyched when we saw the pictures and knew that we had to stay there. I am pleased to say that it met all of our expectations and made our vacation one to remember. The place was fully stocked with high-quality appliances and amenities. The living area was huge and had plenty of room for the 6 of us; we even all fell asleep there during one of the nights. We didn't see any neighbors during our stay, so we had the entire backyard and porch area to ourselves. It was definitely our first time watching a movie from a hot tub. There were many restaurants and attractions within short driving distance, so we never had to spend too much time in the car. Melissa was very nice and made sure that we were well taken care of. My friends and I shared so many new experiences on this trip, and I know we will go back in the future!

the abbot for a month

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at the abbot for a month , Melissa the ownera was amazing too deal with and made accessing the property easy and smooth . The location is great you can walk too everything on Abbott Kinney and if u need to go further uber for a few dollars is an easy way too get around you don't really a need a rental car . The fire pit and jacuzzi are also a great added bonus which we used frequently . The only negative point about this property is the upstairs is constantly rented out by other guests . We had our two children with us and if anyone stayed upstairs the noise from walking , partying or any activity upstairs makes sleeping in the main room impossible as the insulation between the two dwellings seams paper thin.. The last ten days of our l stay we hardly got a wink of sleep before 1 am from a partying tenant .. Melissa the owner dealt with the issue though she is an amazing person too deal with we can't speak highly of her ..!!
