Lovely home with 4 bedrooms, mere blocks from Venice Beach and the canals.... wonderful hosts, Lisa makes a great breakfast for guests every morning, Joe knows the history of Venice and both can send you to great eating places, which abound. My stay couldn't have been better.

Nice, funky alternative in Venice. Well located, nice folks, communal atmosphere. There's only one bathroom for the guests, so you might have to wait a bit. That was the only issue. Breakfasts were home made and good! It was nice to get to know the hosts and fellow travelers, making for interesting breakfast conversation.

Response from Lisa + Joe:
Hello Peter! We just want to clarify that we actually have two bathrooms and 4 rooms for rent. Some guests are assigned to the front bathroom, and others use the back bathroom, depending on which room they rent. In urgent situations we allow guests to use the other bathroom. Thanks for your review. Take care.

Lisa + Joe's place was one of my favorite Airbnb experiences to date. They are welcoming and treat you like family. Place is VERY clean and are helpful if you need anything. The location is a few blocks away from the Venice Pier and they even offer bikes to rent. Totally recommend. Thank you for such a great stay!

It was a fantastic stay! Good location, the room was perfect and the breakfast too. Joe & Lisa took very good care of us. They gave us advises and recommendations on many places and where to go in the LA area. We highly recommend Paradise house to stay in Venice beach. Such a nice souvenir of California :)

We've had a great time with Lisa and Joe - they are great hosts! Everything was as described and the breakfasts prep'd by Lisa were just amazing and delicious. (There are even to-go options available for your day trips). Lisa and Joe are very helpful, kind and have loads of great recommendations. We really liked the setting for breakfast - laid back, felt like home and you could talk about all type of topics with Lisa and the other guests . This B&B has been a great Californian introduction for us!

We loved staying at Lisa & Joe's peaceful paradise. The place was in a great residential area and still only a very short walk to Venice beach!

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!
