Stay at the former MTV Real World House! Beautiful, big and bright master bedroom suite with stunning views of the ocean. The suite measures 700 sq. ft. and has a really comfortable California king sized bed, a sitting area with a sofa and a separate reading area with a chaise lounge and lots of good books. There's wireless internet access, a flat screen TV with HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, and Starz, and a DVD player with lots of cool DVDs. The breakfast area has a microwave, electric tea kettle, coffee maker, small refrigerator and dinnerware service for four with utensils. The room also has a private balcony where you can enjoy breakfast while you watch the ocean, surfers and sailboats.
The master bathroom is very spacious (110 sq. ft.) with a big walk in shower and two separate sink consoles. Bathroom towels, (beach towels too), sunscreen, blow dryer and all toiletries you'd expect to find in a hotel room are all included.
As our guest, you have access to a 400 sq. ft. rooftop deck with an amazing panoramic million dollar view of the mountains, city, and ocean where you can hang out on the chaise lounges and take advantage of the year round good weather. Beach chairs and boogie boards are also provided when you head out to the beach.
Our lovely house is located on a great walk street only steps to the beach. The master bedroom suite is located on the 3rd floor of our 4,500 sq. ft. home. You enter through the side door of our house, but be assured your privacy is most important to us. The location is unbeatable. Just walk out the door and there are lots of fun and really easy things to do and see. The beach, bike paths, restaurants, shops, Venice Boardwalk, Venice Canals and Abbot Kinney Street are all within walking distance. The Santa Monica Pier and Third Street Promenade are a bike or bus ride away. Malibu, Westwood, Century City, Beverly Hills and Hollywood are just a 25-35 minute car ride (depending on traffic). We're 6.7 miles from LAX airport.
The king sized bed sleeps two and a comfortable queen sized air mattress is available for two more guests. An indoor parking space in our home garage can be arranged for a daily fee.
You'll love the laid back atmosphere and great location our home has to offer. Once you're here, you won't want to leave. Please write with any questions or for more information. I'm here to help. Hope to hear from you soon!
No smoking is permitted in the bedroom or on the bedroom balcony. Smoking is allowed on the roof top deck.
I've had so many good Airbnb-experiences, but staying at the Mountain Beach House Suite is by far the best!
The room is huge, super comfy and decorated with a such a nice attention to detail: a great selection of products in the bathroom, a great movie collection and super cute mini-bookshelf for mini-books in the bathroom. And a real luxury with both a balcony, and access to the great roof terrace.
Dorothy is also the best host i've encountered. She's labeled "Super host" here at Airbnb, and for good reason. So kind and helpful, and just a great person to talk to! We felt during the whole stay that she really cared about our experience, and wanted us to have a great time.
If you're thinking "Hmm the place looks great, but I'm not sure about staying in somebody's home while they're there" - don't worry about it! You really feel that you have your own space when you're upstairs in the big suite, and talking Dorothy and Dan in the living room from time to time just added to to the experience.
The location is perfect if you want to stay in Venice and enjoy the ocean, but still be close to restaurants, bars and shops. Last time I stayed in Santa Monica, but I think Venice is so much more fun.
I'll tell anybody who's thinking of going to LA - "before anything else - look up the Mountain Beach House Suite!".
We stayed 3 nights at Dorothy's with our two kids. We could not have chosen a better option for our stay in LA! Nice room, close to beach, the best rooftop terrace Venice has to offer, comfortable beds, good cafes and restaurants nearby (Cows End for breakfast!!), easy access to highway to explore greater LA, and a superfriendly and accomodating host! We felt so welcome and well taken care of. Thank you Dorothy! And see you next time when we are in LA!
Once again, Dorothy went above and beyond to make us feel at home. This was our second time staying with Dorothy, and we're already planning our third trip!
We arrived around 8:30pm and Dorothy was there to greet us. There were three of us staying in the space this time, and Dorothy had already inflated and made up the INSANELY COMFORTABLE blowup mattress. Meant to ask about the brand - it was perfect!
Even in LA, winter can get a little chilly. Dorothy provided electric blankets (sooooo nice to get into a pre-heated bed!) and heaters in the room, even though we ended up not needing them.
The trip itself was great - The Mountain Beach House is perfectly situated on the beach and literally 2 minutes from a yoga studio, 3 coffee shops, juice shops, restaurants, and bike rentals. Cannot recommend staying at this home enough!
Dorothy was an amazing host! She and her husband were very warm, personable and fun to be around. Dorothy spoiled my daughter and I the entire time! She thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. The room was well stocked with tea, coffee, movies and wonderful uplifting books! The room was wonderful! It was sunny, clean, spacious and beautiful with a beach view! My daughter and I started our day with hot tea on the private balcony and breakfast on the roof top while gazing at the ocean! I highly recommend The Mountain Beach House and can't wait to stay there again!
Dorothy was great. She made us feel right at home from the minute we arrived. The place is super comfortable and cosy. Just around the block you will find the beach, the Venice´s pier, a superb coffee shop and a very tasty italian trattoria. We definitely want to come back to this awesome place.
Dorothy was a SUPERB hostess! The very best I ever had... She is welcoming and genuine. She clearly stated that we should feel at home and come and go as we pleased. She was also very accommodating when we arrived extremely late due to travel delays. The lodging is as spectacular as the photos show and the beach is closer than we even expected. You can see it from your private balcony and you can hear the waves! We stayed nine days and we hope to return next year. We just loved it there!
This was a great beach house. Dorothty greeted us at the door and showed us around the house. We felt right at home. The listing description was very accurate, IT IS that nice and we plan on renting this beach house the next time we visit L.A. The neighborhood was very convenient and close drive to downtown. Thank you Dorothy!
My name is Dorothy and I've lived in our beautiful Venice Beach home for the past sixteen years with my husband Dan and our daughter Simone. I'm originally from Pittsburgh, PA but have lived in California for thirty years. I'm the tenth child in a family of twelve children. I was a former advertising executive. I love the beach and feel very fortunate to live here. It's one of the best gifts I've been given in my life. I love riding my bike in the mornings and going out to dinner with my family at our neighborhood restaurants. I'd welcome the opportunity to host you!
