Please book responsibly.
Justin was VERY accomodating and helpful with some hiccups our party had. The place was clean, very well kept, and conveniently located. We were able to get in touch with him and his team if any issues came up and I would book with them in the future.
Writing a review based on the tips:
Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc ?
1.) listing description was pretty accurate since there was no mention of the current condition of the house; location, layout, and amenties for the most part were correct, (noting, microwave was broken).
Was the property clean and well-maintained ?
2.) property was NOT clean and well-maintained; when we first walked in it was pretty clear that the property was not cleaned prior to us getting there, floors were dirty, kitchen counters were sticky, freezer (on the fridge) had been frozen over, and overall appearance was not good. (we did mention this to Justin and he had cleaners come right away, was much better when they cleaned up but still house was in moderate condition.) Garage door worked half the time, sometimes it wouldn't close would take half a dozen or more tries. Wouldn't even close few time
Did the owner provide good customer service ?
3.) the owner did provide customer service, asked if we would like to move to another location, although it was a location we already looked at and were not interested in.
Would you recommend this property to your friends or relatives ?
4.) no, I would not recommend this property to my friends or relatives
What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike near by ?
5.) there was muscle beach right next door which was a iconic place to visit, also some nearby convience stores, the poke place and coffee/banana bread place was great, all walk-able.
I would also like to know this home is right next to another house with a mini skate ramp, not sure if they were guests or lived at the property but they had parties, most going throughout the night. 2 nights while we were there. 1 night they actually had a bonfire which got very rowdy, and in the morning, most of the house smelled like residual smoke. I assume that's why there were a bunch of frebreeze things around the house (mini air filters/fresheners). We probably received/saw at least 2-3 e-mails/signs stating no parties etc.. "you will lose your deposit, or kicked out without a refund", blah blah, but then ironically the house next door were having parties non-stop. I was going to say I could only recommend this to maybe a group of college friends because of the college feel of the place but since it's not allowed, I can't even say that.
Would have been 2 stars if Justin wasn't as responsive as he was.
Place was exactly what I needed for a weekend getaway with friends. House included all necessities and was in fairly good shape. Would definitely recommend to others.
We enjoyed our stay at Justin's place. The pictures online represented the unit well. It literally takes a minute or two to walk to the boardwalk. The area has lots to do with basketball courts, paddle tennis, and the beach. The unit was clean. The kitchen is nice and open with lots of natural light. The check-in and check out process were easy. All in all a great place to stay in Venice.
Amazing location! Super clean and easy! Justin was awesome and had everything set up in the timeline he indicated . House is good for a group looking to roam Venice Beach on foot.
