About this listing
This spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bath on Abbot Kinney Blvd puts you in a prime location to explore Venice and LA.
The exposed beam ceilings give the living room the feel of an old-school Venice bungalow
Located ON Abbot Kinney Blvd (not “adjacent to" or “steps from"), our house is a spacious, comfy perch from which to explore Venice. Drenched in natural light and open to the cool breeze off the Pacific, you'll find our house to be the perfect spot for jumping off on your adventures and a cozy retreat at the end of the day. The private front patio is perfect for grilling out, having a cocktail, or even sparking a little fire in the fire pit. Three big bedrooms make our house roomier than most, with a queen in the master and 2nd bedroom, and twin beds in the 3rd. Two bathrooms, one with a tub, a refinished kitchen and a spacious living room with exposed beam ceilings make this groovy, bright beach pad a total charmer for friends hitting the town or families wanting to kick up their heels.
Some wag just dubbed Abbot Kinney “The Coolest Street in America" (barf). I would say the street Danny Zuko grew up on is the coolest in America, but that's just me (Rydell High from “Grease" is none other than Venice High School. Still looks the same! Check it out on Venice Blvd at Walgrove Ave). Our house is a five-minute walk from the explosion of shops, restaurants, coffee houses, pilates studios, vintage birdfeeders, fixed-gear, difficult-to-stop bicycles ridden by people in oxford shirts and skinny pants… A few of our Venice faves: Hal's Bar & Grill. Been there forever. Get the spicy penne pasta. Abbot Kinney Pizza is good for a slice on the sesame seed crust. Best non-trendy sandwich in Venice: tuna with jalapeno from Winward Farms on the circle. They also make the freakin hugest quesadilla you've ever seen. Zinque at Abbot Kinney and Venice Blvd is a great spot for a drink. The French Market has the best breakfast in Venice: le cheval. The owner is 100% French; she doesn't so much help you as she endures you. And you wouldn't be in Venice if you didn't have a hefeweizen at a picnic table and watch the clouds roll by at On the Waterfront Café at the north end of the boardwalk.
Venice is a special place, despite the recent hype about how hip it is. It's complicated and simple at the same time, and it's so small, the best way to see it is definitely on a bicycle. There's the beach, Abbot Kinney, Main St, and you're a quick car or bus ride to Santa Monica, Culver City, the Getty Center, LAX and more. Our cozy house couldn't be more perfectly located for you to explore Venice and LA. Consider yourself invited!
We ask that you keep the noise at a reasonable level after 10 PM. We have neighbors, as you probably do. If you have no neighbors, or ones that don't care about noise, please contact me about a house swap.
Our house is smoke-free. Please do not smoke anywhere inside the house. You can smoke on the front patio if you wish. Please remember there are tenants in the downstairs unit. If their windows are open, please refrain from smoking on the patio, or step out onto the sidewalk away from the house.
