Best possible Venice summer experience. My apt has washer/dryer/parking included. Half block from the beach. Ping pong table, hammock, inflatable hot tub, fully furnished, and AWESOME local Venice neighbors who will take you right in. Cheaper and better than any hotel, nicer than any other comparable apartment.
This is a great blend of the action packed, happening Venice scene and a peaceful get away when you're ready to unwind. The space itself is much bigger than you would expect and is decorated with a touch of the California beach life we all love. The apt is on the first floor for a 4 unit building and the neighbors are all wonderful people I'm happy to call friends. This location has everything at your finger tips... shopping on Abbott Kinney, bars and restaurants on the boardwalk, the beach as your backyard, and everything else you would need to make this an amazing summer experience.
As a guest you will jump right into the life I have personally built to take advantage of the wonderful weather, community, and local attractions. We (neighbors and I) have outfitted the patio with an 9 foot hand made picnic table, ping pong table, hot tub, fairy lights, parking, surf boards, all kinds of beach equipment, etc. I mainly use my long board to get around and there is space to store bikes securely, as many of us get around that way as well.
Unfortunately I won't be around as I am currently traveling through Asia, but I have a girlfriend (she's great and traveling with me now; but will be home soon), a sister, and wonderful friends who would be more than happy to make you feel at home.
It's Venice, the neighborhood is the stuff of legend. If you're looking to come here you probably know how great it is already and I needn't bore you.
There is a bus stop on the corner of my street which is basically miraculous in Los Angeles. This actually will get you most places you need to go including Hollywood, Malibu, Downtown, etc. The preferred method of transportation in Venice, however, is skateboarding or biking on the boardwalk. The apartment also comes equipped with it's own parking space for your convenience and hailing taxis is simple from the corner of the street as well.

This is my first experience with AirBnB so I'm sorry there's not much to go on based on my profile. I am currently renting the apartment to a Norwegian family of 3 who have been there for 3 months and had the absolute best time they could. I have used (website hidden) for the majority of my life but I'm trying to make the switch. All I can say is that this place is an absolute steal, I'm subletting it because I can't wait to return to it in two months, and I promise (cross my heart hope to die) that you will be so glad you've stayed here.
Dakota was an amazing host and extremely communicative from the time of booking through arrival. He had the place very clean and tidy, provided clean linens and towels, and gave good advice on places to go in the neighborhood. I would definitely book with Dakota again and I hope I can return the favor some time for him on the east coast!
This a great little one-bedroom spot one block off the venice boardwalk. Very comfortable bed, fully outfitted kitchen, washer/dryer, everything you need. Outdoor patio is great also, with inflatable hot tub and picnic table. This is part of a (4 unit?) apartment complex and the neighbors I met were all very cool. Dakota is an awesome host and gave me the tour before taking off. Thanks for enabling a killer beach weekend!!
Our stay at Dakota's apartment was great! The location was unbeatable - less than a block to the beach, and about a 10 min walk to Abbot Kinney. His apartment is actually slightly bigger than it looks in the pictures. The washer/dryer came in very handy, and the couch is super comfortable! I really liked that he cleared out his closets and drawers, even though he didn't need to, since we had a lot clothes with us and really needed the space! The neighbors were also very friendly and offered info about the neighborhood.
Dakota is a great host. Total mensh.
Location kicks ass. Really, it's less than a block from the beach, basketball courts, a great outdoor workout space, tennis courts and, again, beach. And it's three blocks from the heart of Abbot Kinney.
The place itself is cool - not fancy, not gorgeous - but very cool. Nice neighbors, chill vibe. Overall great stay. Thanks man.
We've stayed in this nice apartment in July and it was really great experience. The location is perfect-one step from the beach, but on quiet street. There is big comfortable patio where we organized barbecue party and had lot's of fun. The apartment itself is bigger and more beautiful than on pictures and it's really comfortable. Dakota is very friendly and helpful host, he was ready to help all the time of our stay. We couldn't imagine better place to stay on Venice beach!
