Overview

About the property

Cozy space to commune after wandering the superb neighborhood!

An incredibly tranquil setting, the Orchid Bungalow sits on one of the prettiest canals in the historic Venice Canals. It is one of the very best areas to stay on the Westside, if not all of L.A. as you are close to the beach & can walk everywhere but remain tranquil while here.

A block & half walk to Venice Beach, Venice Boardwalk, Venice Pier & Abbot Kinney Blvd.

This is an original bungalow built in 1950 yet renovated twice extensively with 2 bedrooms, full bathroom & kitchen & 1 parking spot.

Situated on what 'they' say is the most beautiful canal due to its mature trees, the house is tucked in between a large Chinese Maple & Eucalyptus, almost @ a 'T' view where our canal connects with Eastern Canal.

Other than the occasional duck fight, you will sleep peacefully at night as there is no through traffic.

Canal front french doors open out onto your private stone deck & the quiet canal, while a side dutch entry door adds to the open airy feeling.

For day guests kindly please only book at the full house version : vrbo.com/633034.

Full kitchen has dishwasher, a washer/dryer, gas stove/oven, garbage disposal & roomy fridge with ice maker.

High speed power boost wi-fi throughout. Skylights provide great day light in most rooms.

Both bedrooms have queen beds with memory foam toppers & 100% cotton min. 300 thread count linens. A/C & Heater split units make both bedrooms comfy no matter the weather.

Master bedroom also has full futon for 1 adult or 2 small children.

Atrium between 2 bedrooms adds to privacy & could be excellent small 'yoga cave' due to hard wood floor & skylight.

All gates lock to provide security & the boat dock from which to dangle your feet completes the experience!

A magical cozy rejuvenating space.

Please note:

Location, film shoots, parties or get togethers of more than 2 people above the number of guests are to be arranged prior to arrival, at the discretion of Landord, with separate location/event agreement depending on crew, equipment. # of people involved.

What makes this bungalow unique

Our Bungalow is located on what is left of the canals Mr. Abbot Kinney created when he built Venice in the early 1900s.

When the city acquired Venice in 1933 the canals had fallen into disarray & all of the canals were filled in save for the 6 that remain here today. In 1990 the entire canal area was beautifully renovated and is now one of the most valuable areas in LA County.

We are an easy walk to Abbot Kinney blvd. fabulous restaurants & shopping, the beautiful Venice Pier, and the crazy Venice Boardwalk with all of its famous street performers, etc.

Bike rentals are close by and we are 10 minutes to LAX, right off Venice Blvd. with ease to Beverly HIlls, Hollywood & downtown LA.

You can walk or bike most anywhere for whatever you may need~ store, bank, dry cleaners, etc..

So close to all but so far from the maddening crowds...a true sanctuary when you need one from busy LA while either working or sightseeing.

Important note for visitors not from the area: There is a big difference between places actually on the canals versus Venice Beach or the walk streets proper or off Abbot Kinney Blvd. The canals are a small self-contained area with limited car access which creates a noise buffer & makes it more difficult for the general craziness of Venice to intrude. Hence the price difference from other rentals that are grouped together here. The vacation renter is highly advised to run a quick safety check on the area in which they are renting as neighborhoods here very significantly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family's stay at Linnie Canal was very special. We loved the tranquil setting of the canals and the cozy feel of the house. Mariya looked after us so well - just like she looked after the orchids! This was the perfect retreat. I'd come back any day.

Beautiful place & Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed three nights with my family. The bungalow is beautiful, comfortable and stocked with everything that you need. The owner, who stays in the connecting unit, was very gracious and helpful. We cannot wait to come back!

Wonderful location and house

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights here on the last leg of our West Coast tour and we loved it. It is more spacious than the pictures portray. We were a family of 4, parents and a 21 and 17 year old. Plenty of room. Everything we needed was there. AC was a plus, even though it was not that hot at Venice Beach during our stay. Fresh coffee, milk, beer in the fridge when we arrived. Plenty of towels. We enjoyed the deck area, looking out on the canal during the day and evenings. Watch out for mosquitos. We found the neighbourhood very safe. The owner was in the neighbouring house but she was very discreet. Saw her once when she told us to contact her if we needed anything. If you are a fan of Californication, which some of our group were, you will be in heaven. Alan's Market is just around the corner where we could pick up our provisions. It is featured in the TV show. There are some nice restaurants within walking distance. When we ventured further afield we had no problem using UBER. We loved it and would love to return. Bike rental and a hike to Santa Monica Pier was a highlight. Overall, a lovely, relaxing stay at the Venice Canals. Thanks to the hosts.

BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL , LOVELY BUNGALOW ON THE VENICE CANAL

  • 5 of 5

STAYED 10 NIGHTS HERE WITH MY TWO SISTERS AND OUR NEPHEW, WHO IS PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED. THE HOME WAS BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED, WELL MAINTAINED, HAD EVERYTHING YOU NEEDED. COFFEE IN THE MORNINGS ON THE PATIO,ON THE BEAUTIFUL CANAL. WINE IN THE EVENINGS. DAYTIME TRIPS ALL CLOSE BY WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OR USING UBER. THE OWNER ACCOMMODATED US IN EVERY WAY POSSIBLE. SHE WAS MORE THAN GRACEOUS AND HELPED US IN EVERY WAY. ALL IN ALL, A VERY, VERY NICE PLACE TO STAY WHEN IN VENICE. THANK YOU M. FOR MAKING US FEEL AT HOME.

Peaceful and lovely

  • 4 of 5

I loved waking up to enjoy my morning tea on the deck right above the water, watching ducks shoot up the canal and then paddle back down to have another go. The canals are my favorite part of Venice - a peaceful oasis away from the hustle, where people are friendly but respectful in this close environment. (Lots are small and you will feel it, but for me this is part of the pleasure - you feel like you're part of a community of fellow human beings.) I really enjoyed strolling along the water and over bridges - each home is unique and often beautiful.

The owner, was lovely, communicative, unobtrusive but responsive. The apartment is clean, full of light but it's easy to close the shutters if you want privacy. Quiet, comfortable, and pleasantly appointed, the place can accommodate one couple and 2 kids comfortably, or two couples if you are close or heavy sleepers. (To get to the bathroom from the back bedroom you have to walk through the first bedroom where the large sleeping area is in an alcove behind a curtain rather than a wall. Floorboards creak on the way and will awaken a light sleeper.) The back bedroom is large and both beds are very comfortable.

It was hot in L.A. when we were there, but the air conditioning works well and we were quite comfortable. There appeared to be cable TV as well as some streaming media on the large screen televisions, but we never could figure out how to get at the programs - we didn't ask because we were so busy partying with friends that it didn't really matter, but some instructions for those of us who are not millennials would have been useful. Other than that the instructions for using the place were thorough and user friendly.

The living room is tiny - not really a place to hang out for long if you are more than 2 people - but a group of us lounged on the deck and were totally happy. Unless you are two couples and both very light sleepers I would recommend this place above any others that I've seen in Venice.
