Other Things to Note
We live in this lovely house with our sweet dog Carthage, who is always excited to meet new people.
Please keep the gates locked all the time and please keep the noise down after 11 pm.
Nika and Austin are really great and the house was very charming. This is exactly what we hoped for coming to LA - Venice beach. With the sand a stones throw away and the bed unbelievably comfortable. Amazed.
Perfect position to stay in Venice Beach! Nika and Austin were really welcoming and made us feel at home! Would tell my friends to stay here if they were visiting Venice Beach!
Perfect location. Nika and Austin were very helpful with everything and couldn't have been nicer hosts. Their dog and cat are awesome as well. Will definitely stay here next time I come to Venice beach.
We had such a great time.
Nika and Austin's place is so cute, the decorations are so beautiful and beachy. It's also super clean. The bed was so comfy as well.
It's literally minutes from the beach, and also just a few blocks from shops and restaurants. We drove there, and found it easy to park overnight nearby. We would definitely stay again.
Nice clean and comfortable room and bed next to convenient and clean bathroom shared with the other guest room. Hosts are friendly and pleasant. Location is great for walking easily to all sorts of stuff in the heart of Venice. One caveat -- it's on a walking street/alley and parking isn't super close so those overburdened by luggage beware!
I would, however, happily stay there again.
Location location location. As mentioned on the website the house is one block from Venice beach. Both Nika and Austin were great and really hospitable and made us feel like home. We had a great time at their place, although we stayed only for a night.
Great location. Nice couple. Friendly pets. Winston is the coolest cat. Once Carthage gets to know you he is awesome. If you want to be near the beach and the freak shows Venice is all about. This spot is it.
