If you truly want to live the Venice Beach life, stay with Gary!
Not only does the penthouse have an amazing view from the balcony and rooftop, and a comfortable room with an ensuite, but Gary is the lifeblood of the local community! You don't have to party or meet new people, but if you want- Gary knows everyone and all the cool places.
Definitely staying here again :-) What a beautiful week!
The room was very very nice and the position of it directly at the Board Walk was invincible. Gary was an awesome host and very caring. Loved it!
Gary was such a great host - he was very welcoming, friendly and considerate. His place was awesome, the room was very nice, tidy and quiet with its own private bathroom. It was in a fantastic location right on the Venice Beach strip and having access to his bikes were a huge plus! Gary had great recommendations on where to go, things to see, what to do and even took the time to show me around personally. Thanks Gary for a great stay, we will be back!
This was my first time in Venice and the 1st with Airbnb. I couldn't ask for any better place to stay! Location is amazing, with an incredible view and direct access to the beach!

I'll be back for sure and I found the perfect place to stay in LA. Gonna miss you and your place! Thank you so much for making my stay on a wonderfull vacation.
Gary has been a great host ! Very friendly and helpful always with good tips. He knows everything about Venice Beach. The room is located in the heart of Venice on the boardwalk, plerfect to explore the neighborhood easily. The room was very large, clean, the bed very confortable. There is a private modern bathroom, and I could use the washing machine. The sunset from the living room is nice, and you can use a bike to go to Santa Monica for free. Great spot !
