A stone's throw to trendy Abbot Kinney. Recently 100% renovated, it is a completely self-contained oasis for those who want to be submerged in the Venice lifestyle, yet love the privacy of a cozy cottage.

Our Venice courtyard bungalow is a charming, bright oasis for those who want to be submerged in the Venice lifestyle but feel like they are surrounded by nature. Nestled in a courtyard consisting of six bungalows, the space is open for use, with distinctive landscaping, front patio, etc. You have your very own reserved parking space and up to four bikes for recreation trips around Venice and cruising along Marina del Rey, Venice and Santa Monica beaches. The bungalow has just been completely remodeled with elegant and unique touches throughout. New appliances, new plumbing and electrical, new fixtures, new paint inside with so many personal touches, but keeping the 1920s architecture and the letter and spirit of these unique bungalows in tact. Real wood floors, large double-paned windows, and so many more charming details complete with new appliances, new countertops, new furniture and a modern decor. Everything is provided--from iron to coffeepot, to all flatware and glasses, pots and pans, even olive oil, spices and herbs for your favorite home-cooked meal. All new bedding, comforter, hypo-allergenic pillows, high-quality towels, organic shampoo and conditioner, all-natural bath gel make a for a fabulous all-inclusive stay that will be remembered long after you leave this fabulous Venice oasis.

Located on a walk-only street with lush landscaping and beautiful foliage you will enjoy the peace and quiet of being surrounded by nature while only being a stone's throw away from some of the best shopping and restaurants in LA.

The Neighborhood

Venice is most well-known for trendy Abbot Kinney Boulevard, Venice boardwalk, and Venice, Marina and Santa Monica beaches. Add to that eclectic and super cool Main Street, Santa Monica, Lincoln Boulevard and hip Rose Avenue all within walking/biking distance. Venice is truly unique because it has a great blend of rich culture and new chic spots.
Our Bungalow by the Sea is truly unique as the interior is furnished with Hollywood memorabilia from the writer/director/producer's photos with stars, such as a "Grumpy Old Men" poster personally autographed by Ann-Margret, photos with Academy award winner Jack Palace, Academy award nominee Leslie Caron, a full Variety review of one of his more notable films--"From Russia to Hollywood." Since we our located near world famous Hollywood, we try to maintain the authenticity and the uniqueness of Los Angeles with articles, books and photos from the owner's personal film library. Marvel in the all-new remodeled bungalow that gives you both a peaceful, country-like space, the unique Venice vibe combined with the surrounding beach areas, and the aura of Hollywood and the entertainment industry all rolled into one fabulous package.

Guest access

More than your average bungalow in a picturesque courtyard setting, this is your private oasis that contains everything needed for private living--all you need to provide is food and drinks from the local markets. Your beautifully all new bathroom, newly plumbed, all new tiles, fixtures, tiles, floors, doubled-paned windows looks out on to a cozy semi-private courtyard. You have access to the entire property, including a large courtyard area, and large patio area with brick fire-pit in the front of the property. In addition, you have your own fully-equipped kitchen with all new flatware, knife set, pots and pans, mugs, cups, glasses, tea pot, coffee maker, and miscellaneous cooking utensils, and many thoughtful extras, plus new GE refrigerator, GE stove, new floors and counter top. Extra sets of everything insure you have plenty for guests or having a private party a la "Gatsby" style in your private beach side cottage. Your cozy, newly painted bedroom has a new hardwood floor, new window, new ceiling fan, and looks out onto your very own private yard. It features a new bed frame and headboard, and new memory foam mattress.

Interaction with guests

The host lives in one of the other bungalows on the premises and is available for questions, or if there are any problems or issues that need to be solved. The host grew up on the Westside, and attended local colleges, so he is extremely knowledgeable about not only Los Angeles, but can also make recommendations of the best restaurants, entertainment, and so on, so that you can have a memorable Los Angeles experience. If you prefer privacy, no one will bother you and you can have your ultimate private retreat.

Other things to note

Frederick's bungalow is just a perfect quiet Venice Oasis in the hustle and bustle of the city. We loved the neighbourhood, the location to the beach and the west side. The bungalow had everything we needed. A comfortable bed plus sofa bed for us to sleep on. A huge wonderful range to cook on and ample utensils to make some meals at home when not dining in one of the vast number of restaurant options within a 15 minute walk. It is about a 25 minute walk to Venice Beach and all the sights to behold. Abbott Kinney and its individual shops and eateries are only 10 minutes. It is close to LAX and easy to find..... Even when we arrived at 10pm at night. If you appreciate your peace and quiet then interspersing it with lively funky atmosphere then you will feel right at home. Just like we did!!!! Frederick is the perfect host..... Plus his lap dog Bella.

Spent a pleasant 2 nights here with family as part of Californian road trip. Used it as a base to check out Venice beach, Santa Monica and Hollywood. Reasonably priced for the area. Was easy to drive everywhere but was further from the beach than expected, a good 25 min walk. The sofa bed is small and not very comfortable, the main bedroom was nice however. Coin operated laundry and free adult sized bikes to borrow. There is a great bakery called Superba (I think) just around the corner. Close to trendy Abbot Kinsey (check spelling) street which is packed with cool shops and bars. As a family with 2 kids age 7 and 9, I think this Air BnB suited our needs satisfactorily for a short stay but would be more suited to a couple.

This is a charming little walk street bungalow giving on to a shared courtyard that has a great sense of peace and quiet, but is incredibly well connected to the local hot spots of Venice as well as the wider Los Angeles area. Frederick, the host, and his neighbours are welcoming and helpful, but never intrusive. So you enjoy a great deal of privacy but also feel part of a community. As a place to work and play, it feels unbeatable. Thank you!
