The Space

You will have a private room with a private bathroom with tub and shower located in the bedroom, and a walk in closet. A queen sized bed with down pillows and duvet, and 100% cotton bedding and towels, and beach towels and a yoga mat. Your private bedroom and bathroom is located in a large 1,600 sq ft 2 bedroom 3 bathroom penthouse on the boardwalk. The penthouse is equipped with everything. It has a balcony with ocean front and boardwalk views. The building is located in front of the local surf spot. From the balcony you can watch the surfers, dolphins, and maybe a whale during the migration months of January and May.

There is also an outdoor patio with a fire-pit. A fireplace. A contemporary kitchen. WiFi is available.

I usually make delicious coffee @ 10am ish.

There is also silks hanging from the living room beams for silk aerial yoga. There is a guitar and bongo and lots of musical instruments. There is also a shared community beach cruiser.

There is a hair salon and juice bar in the building in the unit downstairs, Type beach beauty culture into your search engine to see the hair salon and a drone aerial video of the building.

Sitting on the living room couch and at the kitchen table you can watch the surfers and the sunset over the ocean. Ocean views from every room except the bedrooms.

This place is a central hub of Venice activity. Type "ocean front walk vortex" in your search engine to see the face page with lots of pictures.

There is a washer and dryer in the penthouse.

Since I do not charge a maid fee, I ask that at the end of your visit you change the sheets and clean up after yourself in the bathroom.

Secure on-site garage parking is available for $25/night Street parking is available.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I had a great stay at Gary's home. He really worked with me to accommodate my schedule at check-in and check-out which were atypical times.

    The spot is central to all beach needs and you could also take a long walk into Santa Monica too. Very convenient.

    I loved waking up to seeing the surfers on the beach and the sun coming up!
    The bed and bath were clean and comfortable. I slept very very well here.

    I did not have much time to hang out around the place, but when I did I was able to relax and make myself at home. Gary always has a group of friends about, so the option to join in Venice beach adventures or hang out solo are great options to have for a traveler.

    Thanks Gary!

  • DEFINETELY GO HERE! We spend the first nights of our CA-roadtrip at Garrys and couldn't have found a better place to stay! Garry really made us feel at home. He gave us a lot of helpful advice where to go an what to do in Venice and California. He provided us with everything we needed and took care of us really well. He made pancakes for us, showed us a lot of Youtube-videos about good places to go in CA and AIRbnb got a whole new meaning for us as Garry even gave us an aerial yoga lesson in his beautiful livingroom. Everything is as described. The view from the livingroom is just stunning and there is a terrace and two balconies where you can hang out! Downtown LA is accessible by public transportation (bus, approx. 70min, 1,5$). If you want to do a sightseeingtour of walk of fame etc you can catch on of the sightseeingbusses that have stopps in Venice or Santa Monica. We would definetely stay here again!!

  • Had a wonderful stay at Gary's place in Venice! What a chill environment that totally felt like home. Gary is an amazing host! Although I'm familiar with Venice he still put me down with spots I hadn't been to before and introduced me to some really nice people. I can honestly say I had a hard time leaving. I highly recommend any space he has available.

  • The description of the place was really accurate. The apartment is clean and comfortable. The location is perfect. You are on the beach in just a few step but at the same time the room is really quiet.
    Gary was an amazing host. We knows really well the area and as lots of good advice and ideas of what to do during your stay.
    Thanks to him I spend a nice moment in Venice and hope I will have to opportunity to come back.

  • I couldn't say enough great things about my time here - the location was perfect with panoramic views of the beach. Gary was an awesome host, taking the time to take us to local eateries/points of interest and included us in the local grunion run! The room was cosy and well kept and I thoroughly appreciated the communal bikes that Gary has for his guests to use. I shall definitely be back, what an amazing first impression of L.A.! :) A home away from home.

  • Gary was a great host. He was very nice and made me coffee in the morning. I met his friends and I went with them to the Farmers Market in Santa Monica. He has an amazing house just in front of the Ocean. I was really cool being there.

  • Me and my friend stayed at Garys Penthouse for 4 nights, and were really happy with our stay! Gary gave us a few tips on things to do and we could also borrow beach cruisers. He is a very generous and easygoing host!

  • Great location and a very helpful and inclusive host. Gary invited us to party's they were going to, told us about good deals in the area and made sure we had everything/knew everything we wanted. Venice is great, very relaxing and had great entertainment if you want it.
