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 space

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!

Very cute and close to lots of shops and restaurant, easy to get to Santa Monica pier. No central a/c as advertised but being close to the ocean it cools off at night and was very comfortable. Would stay here again.

Kirk was a great host and gave great advice on places to see in advance of our arrival. Kirk was very responsive on day 1 when we had plumbing problems with the communal toilet. Fixed within 2 hours. Excellent response. There are fans in the apartment which will be needed throughout the night (we stayed in July) as there is no aircon throughout the apartment. It does get very very warm in the apartment. The apartment is on Abbot Kinney Boulevard and sometimes it can get a little noisy (Friday and Saturday night) in some of the bedrooms because of the cars late at night. You have to leave the windows open because it is so warm! The noise from the street wasn't an issue on the other nights. The twin bedroom didn't have curtains. This is a must in the twin room because the neighbour leaves her lights on a Fri/Sat night and the morning sun wakes you up early. The beds were super comfortable. The apartment could have been a little cleaner but we were hardly there so it was less of an issue. The property is based 10 mins walk from the shops on Abbot Kinney which was very handy. You are definitely paying for the location. We took Uber's everywhere but you can park outside on the street no problem. In terms of value for money I'd give the apartment 6 or 7 out of 10 but everything is so expensive in that location so you may struggle to get anything better.

Greate location, everything close - healthy food market, beach, cafes, promenade area. Apartments have very good design, very light. There are all equipments inside and all that can be nessesary. Owners give big manual about appartments, equipments and district. Thank for owners for soulful atmospher.
