The space

Light airy 2 bedroom flat 5 min walk from world famous beach

Beautiful light filled contemporary 2 bedroom apartment.

This wonderful getaway is 2 blocks from the beach and the heart of the world famous Venice Beach board walk. It is also 3 short blocks from the ultra hip Abbott Kinney shopping district and 7 blocks from the Santa Monica Main St district. It is located on one of Venice Beach's nicest and quietest residential streets, 20 minutes from LAX and Hollywood.

It is fully furnished with a fully equipped kitchen, 40" flat screen television, high speed internet access, sleeps 4 on the queen sized beds, with an air mattress for 5th and 6th guest.

Quiet walking neighborhood, centrally located to restaurants, shopping and beach. Amazing eclectic and creative neighborhood on one of southern California's hippest beaches.


I was visiting California for New Years and have to say that my experience completely exceeded any expectations for my trip based on staying at this property. Doris and Marcus were so helpful throughout my stay. The location is fantastic (mere footsteps away from Abbot Kinney on one side, and the beach on the other side). The property is kept in immaculate condition and has very well maintained furnishings. I would most definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting L.A.

Doris and Steph's place is a great base. A couple of blocks from Abbot Kinney and from the beach (in opposite directions), it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Yes the neighbour is a little bonkers though!

We stayed at Doris's place for a decent spell - 40 nights - and overall I'd say we were happy with the experience. The apartment has some huge pluses and a big minus. The location can't be beaten - it's a couple of blocks to the beach one way and to Abbott Kinney the other, and the street itself is quiet and pretty (our two-year-old very happy pottering about). The apartment is spacious and well-laid out, the Wifi works, the cooker is decent, there are bikes and the neighbour mentioned in other reviews I found to be perfectly OK (closing the gate quietly seems to be basic courtesy...) And we found Doris and Stefanie helpful and communicative. The thing that did bring us down over a longer period was how generally run down the amenities in the apartment are. The whole place could do with updating but what got us down was the general lack of homeliness or care - no cushions or rugs or anything like that, mismatching crockery, random low quality cooking stuff, broken ironing board, cheapest curtains and bed linen, stained mattresses etc . Just meant that returning there rarely lifted the spirits. And was a shame as it wouldn't take that much investment to put it right! That may not be too bothersome over a shorter stay however and considering the average price in the area, maybe that contributes to the affordability.

We had a great time staying here, perfect location, comfortable home and Doris is a great host! Clean and accommodating, stay here if you're looking for getaway in Venice that's close to the beach but in a quiet area during the night :)

The apartment was in a great location, really close to the beach but quiet. Doris greeted us on arrival and showed us around, and directed us to a great deli/health food shop just across the street, very convenient. We walked to Santa Monica Pier, and also Marina del Rey, lovely to stroll along the beach (taking us about an hour each way, but we were not rushing). We would definitely stay there again.

Amazing location, apartment was clean apart from some dust and silver fish in bathroom. Spacious and bright although a little hot during the day as there is no air con. Overall great stay but frustrating that wifi doesn't work in bedrooms.

My family of 5 and I spent 3 nights in this apartment. The apartment is just like the photos and is in a great location just a 3 minute walk to the Venice pier! The only issues we came across where the awful and vulgar neighbors and the fact that the doors only use the bottom lock. The neighbors were disgustingly rude people and constantly yelled at us. The fact that we closed the door very quietly and spoke with "inside voices" did NOT make a difference... we still got cursed at by the neighbors. This really put a damper on the vacation. The second issue was the lock...we felt very secure in the neighborhood however it would have be nice to not just have a bottom lock in order to secure that our things were secure in the apartment. A minor issue that I realized when I got there was that there is no AC...this proved not be an issue for us in the middle of August as it was nice and breezy and there were multiple fans. The woman who checked us in was very nice and they had great communication with us the entire time.

Great location, Great apartment and so much to do. The neighbour several people complained about wasn't a problem at all.
