About This Listing
This clean, modern guest cottage is located in a great area of Venice--on a quiet, cul-de-sac street a quick walk to bustling Rose Avenue and across the street from Whole Foods. Lovely kitchenette, private outdoor patio! Great for one or two.
My little cottage will give you peace and quiet and privacy--but you will be within walking distance of lots going on. It is bright and clean (pretty much all new everything!) You will have a private outdoor patio with an awesome outdoor shower. (there's one inside, too, don't worry!) The place is a one minute walk to the main Santa Monica and LA bus lines on Lincoln Boulevard. Street parking is easy and safe. You'll be about a mile to the beach, across the street from Whole Foods and a few blocks from all the new restaurants and shops on Rose Avenue. Two parks and tennis courts are a 5 minute walk away.
You will have your own private, gated access to the property and full use of the cottage and back patio.
Interaction with Guests
I'll be in the main house during your stay--available for any help you need and to answer any questions or concerns. Also happy to give you suggestions on where to go and how to get around if you are unfamiliar with LA--or just haven't been in awhile. Or simply want some tips from a local. Though originally from the East Coast, I've lived in the area for close to 25 years.
My cul-de-sac street is fairly quiet (& friendly!) and yet it is right near all the things that are so exciting and fun in Venice. The best of both worlds!
The best access to public transportation there is! The main bus lines for Santa Monica and Los Angeles Metro are less than half a block away. Bikes will be provided upon request...just let me know.
No smoking in the cottage. OK on the private patio behind the cottage--as long as you close the door. I am NOT looking to host partiers or loud guests.
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 3 nights.
wonderful. Saul is great, the place is great. local to everything. I highly recommend! in fact so much that I'm about to book again for my next visit....
Saul was an amazing host! He made us feel completely welcome the entire stay. Upon arrival he went over all of the details of everything in the space and gave us recommendations for getting to the beach and a place for dinner. Saul had everything you could need in the studio for a very comfortable and relaxing stay. When we got hit with some bad weather, he even had umbrellas for us to use to shield from the sporadic downpour! I would totally recommend staying here. Thank you Saul for being a great host and sharing your space with us!
Saul is a war and fantastic host! Very friendly and attentive to details. I felt very welcome and oriented to his sweet cottage. He was thoughtful about checking to see how things were going. And super responsive. Very nice to chat with him. I accidentally left an item at his place and he was immediately in contact with me. Saul's place is super clean, a cheery minimalist decor with plenty of space and lots of light. The outdoor private shower is a nice treat on a warm day. The bed is comfy. Love the skylights that open and close with a remote control. The neighborhood felt safe and sweet. A delight to have Whole Foods across the street. Overall, a very positive experience, and I'll be staying there again.
Saul and Saul's guest cottage were outstanding! The listing was better than described, and Saul made me feel welcome by meeting me personally, giving me the keys and a tour of the cottage. He offered to help, checked in to make sure everything was good, and to tell me where the umbrellas are stowed when an unseasonable rain hit. These communications were very helpful. I found some amazing restaurants nearby, it is close to Venice Beach, Abbott Kinney, Santa Monica, and Marina del Rey, there are too many cute areas nearby to see in a week. I was working near downtown, so it was perfect because the traffic in that direction is smooth, and I had the benefit of staying near the beach and where all the healthy restaurants are.
Couldn't have asked for a better place while in LA for the weekend. Great open space with a huge TV with cable, outside patio to enjoy the weather and can't forget about the location. Right up the street from the beach, Whole Foods across the street and quick access to the freeway. Saul was the best host. Available when needed and respectful of your space. I will definitely look for this place whenever I come back to LA.
Great location with a friendly and professional host. The beach is an easy walk away and with Whole Foods at the end of the street makes this a great hub to explore the Venice area of LA. The property has all the basics to get by with ease during your stay.
About the Host, Saul
Hi. I've been hosting for a little while now and have really enjoyed meeting people and being able to offer them a great place to stay in one of the best places on earth! I live with my two sweet goofy pooches--Percy and Gladys--who I'm sure will say hello through the (very secure) gate. I am in the entertainment industry--a lawyer and also a writer. I'm an East Coast guy at heart, but love Venice. I love working out and running on the beach--bring your running shoes if you want to come along!
