About this listing
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. No outside guests.
We couldn't have asked for a better host for our first Airbnb experience, Dorothy made us feeling very welcome in her lovely home and we had a great time! The house is in a great location, steps from the beach and with plenty of bars and places to eat around. The guestroom was very clean and comfy & Dorothy had added lots of extra touches such toilitries, magazines etc. We all wished we could have stayed longer and would definitely recommend The Mountian Beach House to anyone looking for accommodation in LA :)
This was our first Air BnB experience and we couldn't have chose a better host and location. This place is amazing! It is exactly how it is shown in the photos. Its huge, super clean and Dorothy has thought of every little thing you may need and if there is something you do need she is more then happy to help.
Dorothy and Dan are wonderful people. They are very friendly, very helpful and made us both feel very at home. The house is amazing, the beach is gorgeous and there are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops nearby.
Uber is probably the best way to get around but we actually used a company called Hostel Hopper. The pick up location is just a short walk from Dorothy's ( Samesun Hostel - Winward Av ).They run shuttles to Universal Studios , Disneyland and LAX.
If your heading to Venice Beach area I would definitely recommend staying with Dorothy.
We will definitely be returning at some point.
Dorothy is a FANTASTIC host! Her and her husband Dan instantly made us feel welcome & very at home. The room is exactly like the pictures but the feel of it and views are MUCH better in real life. We cant wait to go back! If you are lucky enough to catch Dorothy at the beach like we did you may get a boogie boarding lesson, which was SO much fun! Exceptional stay and we cant wait to go back to magical LA!
What a fabulous place to stay! Our hosts, Dorothy & Dan, were so welcoming and the accommodation provided was first rate. We were delighted with the large, bright, airy room that had been so well described in the listing. The private balcony and used of the rooftop terrace with it's panoramic views were an added bonus. The location was perfect, with the beach and great shops on the doorstep (check out The Cow's End!) and to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean in such comfortable beds was amazing. We can't recommend this property highly enough. Thank you so much Dorothy and Dan for your welcome and all the local information you provided to help us find what we wanted - you made our holiday and we didn't want to leave. We hope to be back very soon!
Wir, Ehepaar mit 12jährigem Kind waren völlig begeistert vom Mountain Beach House. Wir hatten ein tolles Appartement mit Balkon, von dem man durch die schmale Fussgängerstraße den Strand und das Meer sehen konnten. Das Appartement ist sehr groß und sehr persönlich eingerichtet. Dorothy hat uns alles gezeigt und auch auf sehr gute Restaurants in der Nähe hingewiesen. Für den Aufenthalt am Strand haben wir neben Handtüchern, Stühlen, Sonnenschirm, Kühlbox auch noch ein Surfboard für unsere Tochter erhalten. Ein rundum gelungener Aufenthalt mit sehr guter Betreuung durch die Vermieterin.
Dorothy was a perfect host! There was nothing missing and we got every help we needed.
If you are looking for a very spacious and stylishly furbished luxury appartment at Venice Beach (just 50 steps away!) with a balcony and an incredible 360° rooftop terrace offering ocean views from an oasis of tranquility, this is your place to be. On top of that, you will get a very friendly, warm and open-minded welcome from Dorothy and Dan Mountain.
About the Host, 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!
