About this listing
This Artists' Aerie has a magical feeling to it - facing south, with light on 3 sides and fresh ocean breezes. Busy Boardwalk but a quiet neighborhood. One can toast on the roof deck, and when thoroughly cooked, descend to the shady deck to chill.
We love living in Venice, and being half a block from the sand in one direction, and two blocks from all the wonderful bookstores, restaurants, clothing stores, antique stores, coffee shops and...did we mention restaurants? on Abbott Kinney make it virtually unnecessary to even have a car. Seriously. People come from all over the world to see the parade on the Boardwalk, and it never fails to amaze and entertain.
The apartment itself is a perfect romantic getaway for two, with luxurious linens on a full sized bed, from which you can hear the sound of the surf at night. It will comfortably sleep 4, thanks to a snug sleeping loft with it's own glimpse of the ocean. There’s an enclosed deck just outside the dining area with a couch big enough to sleep on, for drowsy afternoon napping, and another deck on the roof with its own peek of the ocean with steamer chairs and an umbrella.
Inside, a cozy but 7 foot long down sofa in front of a flat screen HDTV, a sensibly appointed kitchen with (we think this is a big deal) a virtually silent Fisher-Paykel refrigerator, a dining table that can be rolled outside or stay in, glorious light and fresh ocean breezes conspire to lure you away from the real amenities of this Venice Beach charmer....being able to wander through Venice itself, spotting movie stars, rock stars, ex-Governors or just pretending you live here.
As we said, you might do very well without a car, though there is one (rare) parking space included.
1 parking space, washer dryer, hot outdoor shower, barbeque in the front garden (shared with the Treehouse).
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as they need.
Other Things to Note
We require a 4 day minimum stay, and request that any entertaining wrap up at 11PM. (A) it's the law, and (B) we like to keep our neighbors happy.
Positively no smoking inside or out. Quiet neighbors, tranquil space. Enclosed deck has a table and chairs for dining en plein aire, and the roof deck has two chaise lounges for sunning.
