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.
Dorothy was an absolute delight, and the post accurately reflected the high quality and convenient location of the property.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and would highly recommend it!
Wow what a beautiful location to begin our holiday. We were welcomed by Dorothy and her husband and shown into their amazing home. The pictures do not show just how vast the room is and how comfortable you will be here. The room has all the amenities you will require, lovely and quiet, along with a stunning balcony to enjoy your morning coffee on.
All the fun on Venice beach and also stunning canals are only a short walk away. We even walked into Santa Monica too.
For us it was perfect and I must thank both Dorothy and Dan for welcoming us into their home. Venice beach was all we hoped for. I can't recommend this location highly enough. It truly is a must to book. Thank you again for an amazing stay.
We were blown away with how welcoming Dorothy was! The description of the listing was exactly to the point!
Couldn't have asked for a better host and location for the short stay we had in SantaMonica.
Would definitely recommended to anyone planning to stay in the area!
From the moment we stepped into Dorothy and Dan's incredible home, we were blown away by the wonderful and friendly hospitality they showed us. To get to the guest room you need to go through the front door and into Dorothy's lounge but we never felt uncomfortable or worried about this at all. Our room was vey spacious, well equipped and extremely comfortable - the views of the ocean were the icing on the cake! The bathroom was so beautiful and sparkling clean, with all the toiletries one would find in their own home. Better than many hotel bathrooms! The bed is simply marvellous and after travelling for 5 weeks and sleeping in saggy hotel beds, this was a real treat. The location is PERFECT - walking distance to all Venice hotspots and very easy to navigate around thanks to the helpful maps and info that we found in our room. Wifi works very well and is super fast. Dorothy and Dan are the best hosts around and we feel like we have made friends for life in them - wouldn't stay anywhere else in LA. Can't recommend enough!!!!!
Review courtesy of my wife: Dorothy was the most gracious and kind host we have experienced through airbnb. She made us feel at home from the moment we arrived and we had such a pleasant stay.
The location of the home is excellent and provided easy access to everywhere we needed to be. It was a safe area and we felt comfortable walking around at all times of day. It is also just a block way from a main strip of restaurants and coffeeshops, which was super convenient. We loved our daily acai bowl breakfasts at the Cow Poke, which Dorothy recommended. It is also an easy to walk to the beach, the Venice Canals, and many other places a visitor would want to go to.
Dorothy and her husband have a beautiful home and we felt so comfortable with all of the amenities it offered. The bedroom and bathroom were both massive and comfortable; after living in tiny Boston brownstones for years we embraced the space and comfort! We loved how we could spread out in the room among the bed, couch, comfy chair, and more; you really have room to make yourself comfortable and not feel crowded like you would be in a hotel room. The bathroom was also terrific: it had two sinks which allowed my husband and I to have our own spaces, another great perk.
The room offered a simple kitchen with tea/coffee, a microwave, mini-fridge, etc. This was super helpful for leftovers and quick snacks. We also enjoyed the patio off of the room and getting to spend time outdoors in the evenings.
Dorothy, we hope that the next time we come to see you will be to say "hi" when we are your neighbors (we are moving to the area)! We would not hesitate to recommend Dorothy and the beautiful "Mountain Beach House" to anyone visiting Venice.
Our host Dorothy, was so welcoming, she made sure she was there when we arrived so she could show us around and tell us all about the spots to visit while staying here. The room was better than expected and Dorothy's hospitality was incredible. We loved our stay here!
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!
