The tipi was a fantastic base for our LA adventure, being walking distance to Venice beach was a real highlight, and abbot kinney road nearby was a great area to explore. I highly recommend staying here - just make sure the sun is shining as I don't think it would withstand the r…

The hosts were fantastic... very helpful and their house is beautiful. The location is amazing for anyone wanting to go to Venice beach and there is parking on the road outside. This does get busy particularly on weekends though! The Tipi was very cosy and the owners had clearly …

Response from Douglas:
Yes, the issues with the tipi have been fixed, cleaned and made pristine. There were issues with the tipi that sprouted up in the days before Tania's arrival as a massive storm hit the area. To rectify the situation, I did offer Tania much nicer accommodations in a master suite for the same price she had paid, which she declined in favor of a reduced rate and an air mattress in the living room.

My experience of spending 13 days in the Tipi was amazing. The sound of the sea to drift off to sleep with (it really is only 2 blocks away) and nicely cool in the mornings/evenings. The shower/washing facilities are a very good hotel standard and the host, Douglas is the nicest …
