  • Mark's canal cottage is simply stunning! We couldn't stop smiling from the moment we arrived.. such a lovely place, with the most amazing view and the surroundings are delightfully pretty and tranquil. We had no idea that the Venice Canals would be such a relaxing haven and a lovely place to retreat to after the lively buzz of Venice Beach (only a 7min walk or 3min cycle) The cottage itself is bright, clean, spacious and has all the amenities you could want. We often sat with a refreshing drink in the seating area out the front.. and simply soaked up the surroundings. Whilst it was the photographs on the website that drew us to make the booking, it is even more impressive in person!
    Mark was so very responsive and helpful, always on hand to assist us.. and even popped round to see us before we left. We had a delightful stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone!

  • This was our first airbnb experience, and it could not have been more wonderful! The cottage is even more wonderful than it appears in the pictures -- beautifully designed and appointed with a wonderful view and a comfortable bed. Mark was the perfect host - accessible and helpful while still giving us complete privacy. This is the perfect oasis for rest and relaxation away from the city, yet still close enough to everything if you want to venture out. But the canals are so beautiful and the cottage is so cozy that you may not want to leave at all! Many thanks to Mark for a great stay - we hope to return soon!

  • Host was friendly and polite, and came over to make sure we were settled. The place was exactly as described! Great location, very scenic and close to the beach (walk down through the canals and then a couple blocks from there). The bed was super comfortable and the shower was spacious and plenty of hot water. Coffee maker and dishwasher were lovely amenities.

    Staying there in the canals is a bit like being in a zoo though! (Lots of VERY close-by foot traffic and tourists spectating/staring in windows at all hours of the day! Be prepared to have zero privacy in the cottage unless you draw the curtains)

    Overall a very relaxing experience.

  • Mark was a great host - very responsive and flexible. The cottage is as advertised and contains everything you need. It was clean, comfortable, and charming. I also appreciated having a bike for getting around.

  • We stayed in the Canal Cottage for a week with our two daughters and we had an amazing time. The location is unbeatable, beautiful neighbourhood, close to the beach and Abbot Kinney. We rode the bikes everywhere, the best way to explore Venice, and we hardly used our car. Thank you Mark for being a great host, we can´t wait to come back.

  • This was my third stay at this lovely cottage. The location is wonderful, right on the canals and 3 blocks from the beach. The cottage has everything you need for a short or long stay. Mark is a gracious host and quick to help if needed.

  • Another great stay at Mark's cottage. It's the second time we stay here and it feels like home already. Nice location with beautiful views of the canals. We'll be back soon.

  • We had an amazing time staying in the canals. The quiet and beautiful neighborhood was perfect for morning runs. Easy walking distance to Abbot Kinney and the rest of Venice. It got a little chilly in the cottage at night, but the radiator provided was very helpful in warming things up!

  • I stayed in Mark's cottage with my husband and infant son. We used to live in LA and wanted to rent a place near the beach. We had a great experience! The cottage is perfectly situated (great canal location, easy walk to Abbot Kinney and the beach) and nicely furnished. Mark was very communicative and friendly. We'll look forward to another stay in the future!

  • We stayed in Mark's Venice canal side cottage for a week. It had everything we needed, clean fully equipped kitchen, heating, clean bathroom, bikes, and the sunset view! Wow the sunset view of the canals alone is pretty special. Mark had ensured we had extra bedding if we were chilly, loads of towels and anything we could need for a weeks stay.

    The cottage is in walking distance to the marina, Venice beach (we walked to see the holiday fireworks display) and Abbot Kinney blvd for loads of great coffee and restaurants.

    We would highly recommend a stay in Mark's cottage, great space!
