Not Great but Ok

  • 3 of 5

The place was good for the purpose of our retreat but there were a couple of issues. The air conditioner was broken and certain times of the day with 10 guests, the house got a little warm. Justin was quick to come out but he wasn't able to get anyone to fix it during our stay. Its unfortunate that nothing was offered to makeup for the issue. The first morning we were there, we were woken up by the landscaping crew early in the morning without notice. Part of the couch smelled as though some previous guests relieved themselves on it. Also it was stressed multiple times in emails and on the booklet provided by Justin that no parties or loud noise would be tolerated because of neighbor complaints and we could possibly lose our deposit. Although we did a great job of keeping the noise down, the neighbors and traffic did not. It was often noisy throughout the day, sometimes waking us up in the middle of the night. Besides that, the house is conveniently located next to the beach and great food! The house was well stocked with sheets and extra towels. The house was also very clean. We appreciated the bottle of wine that Justin left and would overall recommend the place for others to stay for larger groups.

In the Heart of Venice Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights in the Abbott Kinney district of Venice Beach. The Brooks Ct home is right in the heart of it. Very quiet neighborhood and two blocks from the VB boardwalk. Restaurants are right around the corner. We went into LA two of the days not 45 minutes (always a lot time for traffic this is LA after all) from all attractions. This being a 5 bedroom home their was plenty of room for all of us. There were six adults in our party. The kitchen is fully functional. Justin was very helpful with our booking and welcomed us with a nice bottle of wine upon arriving.

Worked out well for us!

  • 4 of 5

The house was big and comfortable. The beds were comfortable. Two towels per bedroom. It worked well for our family get-together with parents, 3 married kids and a few grandkids. The kitchen was fine...we were short of utensils, but J (owner) brought some by for us, responded very quickly. It is definitely two blocks to the beach. There is parking in a single car garage for only 1 car, which was hard, because we had 3. We found street parking, but watch the signs carefully. We ended up shuttling groups a few times, so we didn't lose the street spots. Loved the front garden of the house! The actual beach was beautiful-had a great time there. The shops, etc along the "boardwalk" sidewalk were funky--good for people watching. We enjoyed watching the skateboarders at the skate park. We had a great time together, the house served our needs well.

DO NOT stay here ....

  • 1 of 5

A group of us from NJ rented this place to attend a family wedding in Santa Monica. We were first given the WRONG directions and sent to a different place that we DID not rent, we were given the passcode to get IN it only to discover that is was NOT the place we rented. In the process of moving our things out of the wrong place to get to the right place, we were totally robbed!!!! The area is FILLED with homeless people looking for loot ... they robbed our luggage with our computers, ipads, wallets, ID's credit cards, brand new shoes and other valuable belongings. There is NO police ... don't bother calling 911, they don't respond. We were very dissatisfied with the cleanliness of our correct place as well. dead bugs stuck to the frying pan that we're supposed to cook our food in???? 1 fork, cobwebs everywhere, dust everywhere, food in couch cushions as if they have NEVEN been cleaned for years, windows and screens that are filthy, no rugs in bathroom and tile floors are slippery ... construction going on right next door (noisy, hard to sleep), you don't feel safe sitting outside because you have homeless people walking by lurking, staring .... we immediately called Justin to let him know that we were robbed due to their 'administrative error' directing us to the wrong place and that we are not happy with the shape of the house and we wanted OUT and a full refund but, of course, he didn't let us do that - he offered to send cleaning people back (the same people that don't really CLEAN the place?) and we refused to have any stranger in the house given our lack of trust and feeling of safety. we had the WORST stay probably of our lives due to the shady, crime-infested neighborhood and would NEVER ever rent again from Justin. DO NOT stay anywhere near venice beach ... although it's just a mile from santa monica, it's like you're in another third world country!! COMPLETE NIGHTMARE - we did everything we could to stay OUT of our house and the area. good thing the wedding was great .. we never got to really enjoy santa monica since our first three days were spent at pawn shops, police stations and tracking down some of our things directly from the homeless guy who stole it (yep, our ID right in his license and sneakers right on his feet!) never got all the many things that were valuable from our luggage and the police basically said we probably never will ... real nice huh?!

Owner's Response: These guests were given the correct check in instructions, but failed to read through them -resulting in them going to the wrong address. As soon as they got there and realized they were in the wrong location, they called me. I answered and gave them the correct address and directed them to the check in instructions they had already received. While it's a shame they got robbed, I hardly see how it's my fault that they decided to leave their bags on the street unattended. They told me about it and I directed them to call the police. Venice is a lively and touristy part of LA that welcomes all walks of life. We have never had security issues at the house or with any of our other guests. As for the complaints about the house, we have a professional cleaning crew come in before/after every stay. I offered to send a cleaning company back but they declined this offer. They mentioned 1 fork in the house (which I offered to resolve immediately, to which they responded with "don't worry about it"), but after their stay I went in and found utensils and settings for 9. Please take a look at our other great reviews and if any future guests have any concerns, feel free to reach out to me.

Nice, Clean and very easy to check in and check out.

  • 5 of 5

Justin is very informative, he make sure everything is ready before you check in. I like the cleanliness of the house, specially the linen. The kids really enjoy the place, it is walking distance to the beach and board walk. We definitely come back next time to this place and recommend this place.

Thank you for everything. Forget to mention the wine bottle as compliment is good too.

Great Location, Great House

  • 5 of 5

Justin was quick to respond and the check-in process was a breeze. The property is in a great location just minutes away from the beach. The place was clean and had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again. Parking for 1 car was really helpful.
