About this listing

My place is a studio apartment on the 1st floor of a 4 unit building, which is just half a block from the boardwalk, beach, windward circle, skatepark and muscle beach!! 10 minute walk to the Venice Pier!

The neighborhood is very lively with lots going on all of the time. If you are very sensitive to noise, this neighborhood is not ideal. This is an extremely centrally located place right in the middle of everything Venice has to offer.

I am open to discussing pets staying.

The space

My building is from the 70's, and much of the interior is still vintage please keep in mind that just because the floors, counters, sink, tubs etc might have permanent markings, this does not mean it is dirty or hasn't been cleaned. I assure you that my place is scrubbed and disinfected between each guest, it's just part of the character of my place :) My place is not the Ritz Carlton, it is in an older building.. but if you've always wanted to have the full Venice Beach experience, this is perfect for you! EVERYTHING IS EXACTLY AS DEPICTED IN MY PHOTOS. My place is always cleaned between each and every guest (Sheets, Towels, Bathroom, Kitchen, Floors) The location is right smack in the middle of everything, The beach and boardwalk are literally steps away, walking distance to Abbot Kinney, Rose Ave, the Venice beach Pier, the farmers market, library, and pretty much everything else, it's all right here or just a short Uber drive away.

My place doesn't have air conditioning but there is always a cool ocean breeze blowing through and I do provide fans :)

Guest access

Guests have access to the whole apartment, and everything in it. Clean bed linens, bath towels, shampoo, conditioner and body wash are provided. I also hook you up with a sweet welcome basket filled with all kinds of delicious random treats and a bottle of wine.

Interaction with guests

Anytime you need me, I am just a few minutes away. I am always available and respond promptly through Airbnb messages and in case of emergency or any kind of issue, by phone.

Other things to note

Unfortunately homelessness is a part of Venice Beach's unique character. My neighborhood and Pacific Ave are VERY SAFE but you will see some homeless people at the beach, they are harmless. If you are not comfortable with this, Venice is probably NOT for you.

My neighborhood can also be noisy at night, so please keep this in mind if you are a light sleeper.

Marijuana is legal in California and while I do not smoke, and there is absolutely no smoking allowed in my home.... My neighbors do smoke as well as passersby, if you leave my apartment windows open the smell can travel inside.

We had a great stay at Christina's! She was very helpful and provided all the information we needed for a comfortable stay in her lovely studio, seconds from Venice Beach! Thank you!

Christina's place in Venice is incredible!! It is 50 steps or so to the sand/beach and the colorful Venice Beach Boardwalk. We knew the studio was close - but this was super close; such a perfect location if you're staying in Venice. The studio was also amazing. Impeccably decorated with no detail overlooked, easy to locate via Waze or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps, secure, and super welcoming! We found parking immediately in a lot just right across the street (not overly expensive - $20.00 from 5pm through 11am the next morning). We absolutely loved our stay at Christina's & wish we could have stayed longer!! Highly recommend this wonderful studio if you are looking in the Venice area! :)

Great location for those who is looking for the beach. Perfect host but a lot of things has to be done with appartment. Coacraches in bathroom were found. Beds are not comfortable. Neighbours are realy noicy as Christina mentioned. So I don't recomend to the families with kids and to those who is looking for the silent rest.

Pretty sweet place. Perfect walking distance from the beach, shops, restaurants, bars, etc. I would stay there again if I come back to this part of town.
