We stayed in Venica Beach for four nights. The rental is funky and comfortable with good beds and a well equipped kitchen. "M" lives close by and is delightful. She checked on our comfort and was very helpful to first time visitors to her lovely beach community. Venice Beach is the laid back easy going sister to the swanky neighbor to the north, Santa Monica. The whole area is easily accessible by bus. (Seniors ride for .50 vs. 1.00 for others) We were there for a family wedding so spent lots of time in and out of the rental to and from events. The whole time was fun and the location of the rental gave us the opportunity to see and enjoy the beach as well as the shops and restaurants. It was very enjoyable and I would highly recommend this rental if you want something aside from the ordinary hotel.
My husband and I stayed here with my daughter and her husband. We each had our own bedroom and full bath. Both were very comfortable with every amenity we needed. The rental owner, Melodie, was very kind and responsive to all of our needs. As an interior designer I very much enjoyed and appreciated the "funky" decor. Everything was very clean. Though we enjoyed the small outdoor space, it was a noisy, due to the fact that though private, there is a busy street on the other side. The neighborhood, though probably safe, is one I preferred to walk with a companion. We were very close walking distance to the beach and Abbott Kinney, an interesting shopping district with lots of restaurants too. Convenient to all LA sites.
