Spacious, PRIVATE Mar Vista backyard cottage located in quiet neighborhood. Perfect for 2, all amenities included, pet-friendly, and located centrally near Venice Beach. We offer a local experience and serene, peaceful environment.

The space

If you are looking for 600 thread count sheets, chocolates under your pillows, or a Ritz Carlton experience, this ISN'T the place to stay. However, we do offer a cozy, private backyard cottage, with all the comforts (maybe more so) of home, and a glimpse into REAL Southern California life. Small fridge, coffee maker, microwave, full bathroom and shower, large closet, bedroom, skylights, and work area, all packed into an economical living space. We are an animal friendly space (we welcome friendly, quiet pets) and we ask that you read through some of our guest's reviews before booking. We are 1.5 miles from the coast and an easy drive to most West LA locations.

Guest access

We offer free wifi, laundry, driveway parking for one car, beach equipment (boogie boards, paddle tennis racquets, etc.), and an outdoor patio for stress-free relaxing.

Interaction with guests

Separate entrance means you can have as much, or as little, interaction with us as YOU wish. Your privacy is your own. We are a door knock away in our main home, but you choose whether or not to knock and we respect all boundaries. If you read through prior guest's reviews, you will get a better idea of what we're about.

Other things to note

We have a lovely backyard with BBQ and patio furniture for you to use at your leisure, as well as some friendly hens who share the property with us (they love to be held and loved). Feel free to grab a fresh egg or help yourself(ves) to our vegetable boxes, which produce organic produce year round. Gass stove and all the cookware you need to prepare meals and markets nearby (Costco, Whole Foods, Ralphs, Vons, Pavillions, Gelsons, and Rainbow Acres are all within two miles).

Ian and Alice are wonderful, friendly hosts who go out of their way to help you and make your stay in LA as fulfilling as possible. They were there to welcome us and provided great advice on how best to navigate the vast city that is LA and recommend places to eat and the best sights to see. There a is a real family atmosphere which you feel part of as soon as you arrive and it made our stay so much more enjoyable - could happily have stayed longer than 2 nights! The accommodation itself is a separate property to the back of their property and comprises a bedroom with double bed and en-suite, living room with sofa/TV and kitchen - it is a relatively small space but more than adequate for your stay in LA with great wi-fi. It is located in a quiet residential street off Venice Boulevard and it's only a few dollars to reach Venice Beach or Santa Monica by Uber. We even walked down to Venice a couple of times and it only took 35-40mins. Highly recommend!

Ian and Alicia are warm and helpful hosts, and their place is wonderful! I think they undersell the place itself - it has a small but proper kitchen, and gets a wonderful breeze in the evenings. The place was well stocked and very clean!

The chickens make great alarm clocks (we didn't start hearing them until maybe 10 or so, not super early). Ian and Alicia have great suggestions and are very accommodating. We will definitely stay there again in the future.

The appartment is pretty spacious and has everything you need. If you want to be close to Venice Beach, look no further, you're there within a very short (Uber)drive. Alicia and Ian were very helpful and so nice! We had a great stay.

Ian And Alicia User ProfileIan And Alicia is a superhost.

We are a loving couple, together since 1988, who have lived in the Venice/Mar Vista areas of Los Angeles for the entirety of our relationship. We love all things coastal, own two vintage campers in which we travel frequently, and have been part of the Burning Man community for over 15 years and counting. Our favorite shows are "Mad Men, Parks and Recreation, Modern Family, Extras, Grimm," and "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

We try to live by three basic rules; be honest, try your best, and keep your word.

We have been fortunate to travel all over the world, including almost all of Southern Africa, Western Europe, China, Japan, Canada, and have our sights set on Australia.
