About the property

This modern, designer styled, super light and bright, 2 bed/2 bath in the heart of Venice, leaves you with nothing to be desired and is ideal for both the vacationing and business traveler and comes fully loaded with everything you will need when staying at this beautiful property. From the original artwork and photography from local artists, original and restored oak wood floors from the 1950's, custom furniture from local artisans, to the goose down comforters and 500 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, and the private garage directly behind the unit to park your car, you will be sure to enjoy your stay!

The property itself is located in a VERY secure community originally designed by renowned architect, Ralph Vaughn, just blocks to Abbott Kinney (voted the coolest street in America by GQ magazine) with its great restaurants, trendy bars and boutique shops, which truly make the Venice experience come to life! You also have easy access to Whole Foods Market only 2 blocks away with its fresh and organic groceries. The beach is only a short bike ride or walk away!

Everything in the property is brand new and it becomes apparent from the moment you arrive! Starting with the 60' LED TV when you walk in loaded with NetFlix & DirecTV's premium subscription package including all movie channels such as HBO, Showtime, and Cinemax just to name a few. In addition, if you are a football fan as we are, you also have NFL Sunday Ticket so you have access to every NFL game on Sunday's.

The super bright living room with wall to wall Southwest facing windows give that place a wonderful energy at all times of day! The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need from your coffee in the morning to all cooking equipment and spices for making dinner in the evening. The property itself also has BBQ's on the premises if you want to soak up the California sun while cooking your favorite meal!

As an avid and experienced world traveler, I strive with all of my properties to give you the best traveling experience possible just as I would like it. Some properties look nice on the surface but come ill equipped, not this property! Kitchen is full loaded, lots of outlets to charge your devices, laundry inside, etc. Me being an LA native, I am always available to give you recommendations on my favorite restaurants, bars or simply cool things to see that guide books won't give you. Some of the things you can come to expect when staying here are:

* 2 separate bedrooms with premium queen bed mattresses and top end pillows to ensure you get a good nights rest. Queen sized Aerobed is also provided for groups larger than 4 (please request in advance).

* 500 thread count genuine Egyptian cotton sheets coupled with top end European Goose down comforters.

* 2 complete private baths to service each bedroom.

* 60' LED TV with Netflix, Google Chromecast and premium DirecTV including all movie channels such as HBO, Showtime and NFL Sunday Ticket.

* Each bedroom has its own television (40' & 32' LCD's) loaded with NetFlix and one with Apple TV also, so you can relax and watch your favorite movie or show.

* Fully equipped kitchen with all kitchen utensils, pots, pans, spices, oil, blender, toaster, coffee machine, microwave, oven, dishwasher, etc.

* Keurig coffee machine loaded with Starbucks to start your morning right.

* Private garage directly behind the unit to make parking as easy as possible for you.

* Central Heating and Air Conditioning (rarely will you need it, but nice to have!)

* Communal BBQ's with free WiFi are located on the premises a short walk away.

* Hi Speed Wireless Internet with 15-20 mbs download speed

* Shampoo, conditioner and soap along with spa quality linens.

* 2 Beach towels are provided.

* Washer/Dryer inside the unit with detergent as well.

The complex is a SMOKE FREE facility so no smoking can be done on the property itself and must be done on the public streets close by (2 min walk).

Quiet hours are from 10PM-8AM so we ask that you kindly respect that as well.

Apartment is perfect for vacationers (foreign and domestic), corporate clients, and temporary housing for local residents needing short term accommodations. NO PARTIES.

I am always an easy phone call, text, or WhatsApp away to help you with whatever it is you need! If you need help renting bikes, nightlife, restaurant recommendations, or using one of Los Angeles' famed ride sharing services (Uber, Lyft) so you can leave the car at home, I am at your disposal.


Property sleeps 4 in real beds, 1 on couch, and 2 on a queen size air mattress (AeroBeds) which is highest quality out there and very comfortable. 7 total in some cases are allowed, but generally we try and keep it to 6 and less.



** I will be flexible with check in/out as long as there are not other guests coming or leaving the same day.


Garage parking available for one car and street parking is easy as an alternative.


Property is suitable for well behaved children and has lots of grassy open space where children can play ball and run around with supervision.


2 minute walk to Ralphs's Fresh Fare and 5 minute walk to Whole Foods with its wonderful selection of organic products and amazing deli!

If you really want to get the best of what California has to offer in the way of organic produce, try one of the amazing Farmers Markets we have nearby. Venice Farmers Market on Fridays, Santa Monica on Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesdays.

Property is wheelchair friendly with a ramp in the rear leading up to the property.

A great apartment in a great quiet location near the beach and lots of other fun !

  • 5 of 5

We were in LA (from New England)for spring vacation with our niece and nephew. Our host, Shawn, checked in throughout our visit to make sure all was as expected. He answered texts we sent within minutes. We felt very comfortable. And having the garage was great ! No driving around hunting for a precious parking spot.

The apartment was spacious, clean , and nicely decorated. Kitchen was well equipped. The beds and bedding were outstanding. We all slept wonderfully. Even though we were in the city , among several apartment buildings, it was very quiet. One night there was some loud music playing after 10 pm and when we let our host know, he took care of it in minutes. Really appreciated that attention. I would highly recommend this rental. Good value, especially for Venice so close to everything.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying Mike and I'm sorry that you found the building to be older in your view. The building is actually not old at all and was just developed/rebuilt in 2010-11. The style has some original character because the buildings are part of a historic preservation area so some things such as the hardwood floors are the original floors which many people think is actually great and gives it character. All the best and I hope to be able to host you again in the future. Shawn

Adequate lodging in Venice area, with some caveats

  • 2 of 5

My wife and I, our 2.5 year old, and my parents stayed here for 2 nights. This property was adequate, and more or less as presented. I was disappointed in several ways, however: (1 - by far the biggest issue) it’s an apartment (as advertised), and the noise from neighboring apartments (especially above) was extremely disruptive. The tenants were loud, the structure itself was creaky, and the noise went late into the night; for this reason, I would discourage anyone with small children from staying here. (2) As a guest, I was made to feel uncomfortable - really a nuisance - in several ways: the welcome handbook states repeatedly that I was not to talk to neighbors or the management about any issues, not to use the pool or the gym (which is fine), and that If approached I was to say I was staying with friends rather than renting. With these repeated warnings, we felt very uncomfortable entering and exiting the property. In the welcome handbook it’s stated that we may be able to check in earlier than 3pm and to communicate by text or call. I texted the owner asking if we could arrive a few minutes before 3pm, and never received a response. (3) The space itself was adequately appointed, but was definitely a bit dinged up and not as well maintained as I hoped it would be for the price.

We wouldn’t stay here again, but it could work fine for someone who’s out until late at night and doesn’t need much in the way of amenities.

Owner's Response: Hi Andrew, Thank you for coming and I'm sorry about the issues that you had. You checked in on a Saturday night and this being Venice and lots of young people generally living in the area sometimes people do have guests over and this was the case on that evening. Had you told me then I would have contacted the neighbor and told him to keep it down but I never heard from you regarding this. I would strongly disagree that you were made uncomfortable during your stay. I have a handbook in the apartment which mentions the things you pointed out because all over Los Angeles short term rentals are prevalent and its a hot button issue with many for it and also many against. Therefore we just ask that you stay out of it should anyone ask but I have NEVER even had anyone ask. In regards to not responding to you this is not accurate because I did respond to you I just didn't get back to you immediately when you texted me at about 2:45 for the 3 check in. The pool and gym are not advertised at all as being a part of the rental so I am not sure why you point this out in the review because it was never said to be available. I'm sorry that you feel this way about it. The unit it also always maintained and the carpets and couch were just actually steam cleaned before your stay so I am not sure what you mean by "dinged up". The walls get some scuffs from peoples luggage but its also repainted quite often to cover them up. I hope to be able to see you again and would offer you a free nights stay to make up for the noise on the one evening. I just wish I would have been told about it so that I could rectify it right away for you rather than having your young child kept awake. All the best and my apologies for you not feeling totally satisfied with your stay. Shawn
