About Daniel Dorn

I was born and raised in LA where I continue to live with my wife and six kids :) .

Daniel Dorn purchased this condo in 2010

Why Daniel Dorn chose Los Angeles

My family and myself had a great opportunity to own a great house on the beach.

What makes this condo unique

You can be on the beach and in the heart of Los Angeles at the same time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location, walked my 4&6 yr old to the beach every day, walked to restaurants. Garage was very convenient, 2 car parking. Home was updated and clean. Dan was easy to work with. Would definitely stay there again.

Great beach home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was amazing , there was 6 in our party and still plenty of room , it was very clean and spacious, juts a 2 minute walk from the beech front.

And a 20 min walk along the beech front to Santa Monica.

I Would highly recommend this apartment for 6 / 8 people traveling as a group.

It was more like a house than a condo .

Great location, beautiful views!

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 4, and stayed for a week in August. The location near Muscle Beach was perfect, and it's awesome and rare in Venice to have 3 parking spaces!

The house was 3 stories, with 1 bedroom on the 1st floor, 2 on the 2nd floor, and a great room (kitchen/living/dining) on the 3rd floor with ocean views. This set up was fine for us, but the stairs could present a problem for some. The small balcony off the 3rd floor is a nice place to enjoy coffee or wine as you take in the views.

A few things to note: The 1st floor bedroom gets super cold if you turn the A/C on, much more so than the other rooms. I think Dan, the owner, is aware of this as there was a thick duvet on that bed.

- I wish there were more supplies kept at the house: when we arrived, there were no paper towels, cutting boards, plastic wrap, salt and pepper, etc. Dan was quick to drop off supplies upon request, but it would've been nice to have them on hand.

Overall, we really enjoyed the house, and would consider staying here again. Dan was also very prompt in returning our security deposit (within a few days after checkout.)

Spacious and Close to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable beach house with plenty of space for our family of six, including four young adult children. So nice to have a fourth bathroom upstairs, along with the kitchen and roomy sitting/dining areas. The garage was large enough for our full-sized SUV and we could have parked another vehicle in the garage and one in the space next to the house. We enjoyed walking outside to people-watch, close proximity to the beach and bike rentals, plenty of food and drink options and the secure setup for entry/exit. Daniel replied to email quickly, so there was no reason to call him, although he did include his contact info, along with a secondary contact person - very good experience all around with the house, location, cleanliness and owner. We would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone going to Venice Beach.

Amazing and Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family had a great time spending in this beautiful house. The house is very clean by the time we arrive. I would really recommend it if you have more than 7 people that are looking for a place to hang out with your friends and family. Good place to stay, and the location is great too.

spacious, comfortable, not totally secure

  • 4 of 5

The good:

The location is great. Steps from the walking and biking path along the beach. Walkable to places not right on the beach as well, so we didn't have to get in a car for our stay, which is a treat in L.A.

Daniel was very responsive and got back to me with any questions I had.

Having four bathrooms for 7 of us staying there was really nice.

There was lots of kitchen counter space and the house feels spacious.

The setup in the main living area was really open, so you could be on couches and still be in a conversation with people at the dining room table (which is huge!) or even someone in the kitchen.

The beds were comfortable.

There is a deep bath in the master bedroom which was much enjoyed by kids and adults alike.

The bad:

The door to the third floor balcony did not lock, or even close all the way. Some of the window controllers did not work, so some of the windows would not close. These things made my parents extremely uncomfortable. (The front door locked just fine.)

There was a gang fight about 40 feet away from the front door the first night we were there. That combined with the house not feeling totally secure made all that a bit scary.

The kitchen had lots of plates and silverware and glasses, but only one small cutting board, making kitchen prep a bit tough. Also, the first night we were there, there were a few crumbs on the floor (like 2!) and there was a mad ant rush when we got up in the morning. Ants can't be helped sometimes, so just an advisory: clean up well and often.

The broom was hard to find (behind the washing machine on the second floor) and the dustpan unreachable.
