I live now in Yardley PA and I was raised in the east coast. I am a real estate developer. (Note: Kathy P. works with me as the property manager. She lives in LA)
This was a great house for hosting a mini conference weekend. It accommodated 5 guys very comfortably and the kitchen was easy to use. This is not a luxurious property tho and the location could get kinda sketchy at night. Overall is a nice house to spend a weekend with the family or a large group of friends.
While we found this home only last minute, it turned out to be a golden choice! Just about 100 m from the beach (second beach house row), you are in close vicinity of Venice beach.
The true beauty of this offer lies in the appartment itself though. Unfortunately we could only stay a single night, way too short for this superb home. It is equipped very nicely, highlighting especially the living room with the TV & dolby surround system, and foremost, the fireplace (which can be turned on via remote-control =) The bathroom is likewise luxurious.
So, definitely a welcoming place, coupled with great hospitality by Richard, the host.
All in all, great value for money - looking fwd to coming back!
Richard was very accommodating even before we arrived, waiting for us and making arrangements for smooth processing of the deposit. Once we did arrive he was very helpful showing us around the house, making sure all 9 of us had a place to sleep and showing off all the gadgetry. The house itself was nicely furnished, had all the amenities you could ask for and comfortably slept all of us. In terms of location it was great for us, literally right by the beach and parking for 2 cars in the back we could easily explore the city from there. Venice Beach of course has a fairly large homeless population but at no point did we feel unsafe in the neighborhood, even at night. Couldn't have asked for a better host or house for our short stay. We would all gladly return given the chance.
Great location close to Venice beach boardwalk. Beautiful house, and Richard is the best host. Would definately come back and recommend to anyone travelling to Venice/LA!
Rick was a great host and the room/house is exactly as pictured. Located in the heart of Venice, a block away from the sand, yet also quiet. We loved our stay and meeting Rick.
Rick is a very hospitable host and the accommodations were to perfection! Did not have a chance to enjoy of the house amenities so a return visit will be in the near future!
This is an OK house. Probably best for a group of friends.
The location isn't ideal for a family with young children.
It looks nicer in the photos than in reality.
Kathy is very responsive and helpful.
The parking at the back of the house is handy.
It was perfect.
Thank you Kathy, thank you Richard;
Your place is awesome and amazing; definitely ill be back here.
The best location & the cleanest house in Los Angles.
The house is popular for a reason...it is well located, it is roomy and the parking for three behind a locked free standing metal garage roll up door is wonderful. It is not a 5 star because the furnishings are modest and the beds upstairs are both small and the mattresses are not very comfortable and there are no stools in the kitchen. Housekeeping is not great and the person responsible, Kathy, is not very responsive. But, we had a great time, the kitchen works very well and it nicely furnished. We'd do it again.
