Lisa and Joe are gracious hosts. I felt so welcomed! And their location is fabulous -- close to beach, restaurants, the canals, Abbott Kinney, etc. A lovely experience.

Lisa and Joe were great hosts. When we arrived we were greeted by Joe and he walked us through the details of the house, recommended places to see and restaurants to try. It was great! Each morning breakfast was served which included breads and jams, cereal, fresh fruit, a protein and on the last morning of our stay some amazing Blueberry Pancakes. They have 2 cats but they aren't allowed into the bedroom area. They do let them in the kitchen in the off time, but each morning before breakfast they scrub the kitchen down to ensure it's nice and clean to eat. They are some of the most eclectic hosts we've had. My husband was really in awe by Joe's taste of music, and career. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a great deal, with breakfast in Venice Beach!

Staying at Lisa & Joe house was a delightful experience. The location is just perfect, in a very quiet street but also close from all the best spots in Venice. The Robot room was clean and nicely decorated (specially for a geek like me). The breakfast included was great. But above all, I will remember Lisa & Joe for their kindness and availability. Thanks again!

We highly recommend Joe and Lisa's place! Very nice located, close to the beach ( walking distance). And close to all restaurants etc. They have bikes available which were great for us to bike to Santa Monica. And apart from all that Joe and Lisa are great people who helped me out with my dental problem :-)

When you've never spent a long amount of time in LA and hope you picked a great AirBnB make sure you've picked this place. Everything about Lisa and Joe's place was exactly what we were looking for. Close enough to Venice Beach to get there by walking but far enough to get the peace and quiet of a residential neighborhood. Tucked in between the beach and the popular Abbott Kinney shopping district meant we were never far away from great restaurants and great people watching. The robot room was perfect for my wife and me and with all the fun collectables there was always something new to see when we got home from the day's adventure. Lisa and Joe were very kind and always checking in to see if we needed anything. They even shared in the excitement of my wife riding a bike for the first time (which of course is a must if you're staying close to Venice Beach). Seriously top notch. I can see why they are usually booked. Thanks for the great week!

Lisa + Joe User ProfileLisa + Joe is a superhost.

We love living in Venice. It epitomizes everything we love about life. The ocean, art, access to great restaurants, and scenic walks, and the diverse culture.

We throughly enjoy having guests, and feel that everyone we meet has a way of enriching our lives. Meeting someone new and hearing their story can be just as entertaining and interesting as watching a great movie.

The restaurants in our neighborhood are amazing. We can find just about any type of food we are in the mood for. Some of our favorites are Thai, Italian, Mexican, and Japanese. All within close walking distance.

Most of our regular places to visit are not very far away. We appreciate a sunset walk to the Venice Pier, a bike ride to the Santa Monica Pier, a hike in the Santa Monica Mountains or in Joshua Tree National Park, staying at BnB's in Ventura and Santa Barbara, and camping at Big Sur and the Giant Forest.

There is lots of free fun to be had in and around Venice. Here's a list of the local events that we love to partake in, and often invite a group of our friends to join us; concerts on the Santa Monica Pier, the Abbot Kinney Festival, The Venice Canal Holiday Boat Parade, The Venice Carnival, The Festival of the Chariots, The Marina Boat Parade, The Marina 4th of July Fireworks and Concerts in Burton Chase Park.

How blessed we are to live in Venice. Hope you enjoy your visit as much we do living here.

Wherever you stay we hope you thoroughly enjoy your visit to this wonderful place we call home!
