5 stars all around. Great location, beautiful views, within walking distance to beach and coffee shops and restaurants. Mark was an excellent host, even running over to light the pilot light on the heater when it went out. He also provided a crib and some toys for our 1yr old. Thanks again for a wonderful time!

I loved the cottage. It is very well-designed, comfortable and clean and in a great neighborhood. It is an easy walk or bike ride to the main streets of Venice. All-in-all it is a very special place that I will happily rent again!

Never having been in the Venice canal area before we weren't sure what to expect but we really enjoyed our stay. Mark was a great host and made sure we got access as required and also checked to see if we had everything we needed. The canals are a joy to walk around, even late in the evening and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole area. The cottage is great and provided all we needed (for 3 people). The main room has a wonderful view right down Linnie Canal and there are books, stereo and WiFi to enjoy as well as the bikes and Mark's tips for the area. It was also good to have free parking right by the cottage. Venice is very laid back and friendly whilst at the same time proving easy access to other parts of the coast and central LA. We will definitely be going back.

I had the good fortune to stay at Mark's place for a week while I was working in Los Angeles. I've stayed in many beautiful places all over the world with Airbnb, but this cottage may have been the best of them all. Picture-perfect location, convenient, beautiful and comfortable environment. Have never seen a place as well equipped - Mark has thought of everything you would want or need during a stay. I didn't spend much time there since I was working, but this was a wonderful retreat to come "home" to every night. Great communication from Mark - he was really interested in making your stay peaceful and pleasant. A few blocks to a great beach, good restaurants in the area. Just a great, great stay. Thanks, Mark!
