About this listing
This is a Mid-Century Modern, airy, sunny, open floor plan, gorgeous, large beach Guest House located in Venice Beach, one block from the beach and 2 blocks from Abbot Kinney blvd and Santa Monica's Main st. The house is uniquely located on one of the few historically preserved "walk streets". Experience Venice and Santa Monica as a local and walk or bike EVERYWHERE for beach activities, shopping, and to the best food and wine in west LA.
This beach Guest House is airy, bright, and very open - a great space for entertaining, or just hanging out and relaxing. This house is perfect for a small family or a couple (or 2 couples that do not require walled bedroom privacy) or a small group of friends. NOT FIT for the partying crowd. The main living area has 2 queen beds, 2 sofas of which one is convertible, a flat screen TV, a dining table and 4 chairs. The whole Guest House is decorated with all new furnishings, comfortable mid-century modern and ready for you to enjoy. The kitchen and bathroom are well appointed with everything you need for your stay. There is also a private front patio, great for enjoying the warm southern California days!
The Guest house is located on a Venice walk street (no cars) that ends a block away on the Venice boardwalk and Venice Beach. From the walk street, you can see the Ocean as you enter through the modern wooden gate into a Zen like garden and up the stairs to your Guest House.

Note: Before booking, please know, you're renting a place in a neighborhood where our nice neighbors live. We know you're here to have fun, but this is our home and our amazing neighborhood, and we expect you to treat it as yours. We don't allow parties or events or large groups or rent to guests that plan to engage in noisy activity and upset our neighbors. Noise complaints can result in lost deposits and police visits (trust me, this is not the house for you if you will be noisy) . Please book responsibly. Thanks!
Interaction with guests
We will meet you to check in, and after that you have the entire place to yourself. If you need anything, we are both only a few steps, or a phone call away!
You are ONE block away from the famous Venice Beach boardwalk. You are just a couple of short blocks from Abbot Kinney, voted coolest street in America by GQ magazine, and a real hotspot for artists and home to some of LA's best shops and restaurants including many excellent art galleries, about a half-dozen interesting clothing boutiques and over a dozen cafes and eateries. You are also one block away from Rose Ave and Santa Monica’s Main st, both are premier spots for daytime shopping, and excellent dining and nightlife in west LA. You can also walk or bike to a Whole Foods at the intersection of Rose Ave and Lincoln if you choose to stay in and cook.
You can easily walk or ride a bike to the furthest south point of Venice including Muscle Beach and Washington St and north to downtown Santa Monica and its famous 3rd St Promenade. Santa Monica and Venice have some of LA's best shopping, dining, and nightlife; and it's all just outside your door step! Just about everything you need is within walking distance. If you decide to venture outside of the beach neighborhoods, you can easily catch a bus or a RideShare like Uber/Lyft to get around other parts of LA or use the newly created Metro Expo line to Downtown LA from downtown Santa Monica.
