Located a block from the sand - yes, you can see the ocean from the house! - you can hop on a guest bike and explore the colorful world of the eccentric Venice boardwalk, or grab your towel, walk to the sand and swim, surf, para-sail and more. And when you've had your fill of sun and sea, head to Main Street or Abbot Kinney, where you will discover fine dining establishments and casual eateries to satisfy your every craving. Or whip up a meal in our big country kitchen, and lounge in front of the widescreen TV with Netflix.

  • Nika and Austin were very welcoming and helpful with advice on the neighbourhood! I borrowed one of their bikes and rode half way up to Malibu, which was awesome. Their Belgian Shepherd, Carthage, is sizeable and barks loudly upon strangers entering the house, but he is friendly and responded fine when asked to "hush". Location was amazing, just off Venice Beach promenade and ten minutes walk to Abbot Kinney shops and restaurants. Bed was very comfy. I would loved to have stayed longer than just one night, and hope to be back again soon!

  • Stayed for one quick night. Nika and Austin were both very welcoming and a pleasure to meet. Clean room and bath. Perfect location!

  • We had a great stay at Nika & Austin's! Both our hosts were friendly, hospitable, and made us feel welcome & comfortable at their home.

    The location couldn't have been better - we could walk to the beach and tons of shops as well as good restaurants. Everything else we wanted to do was a quick cab ride away but we stayed close to home since the weather was nice and there was plenty of good coffee & shopping within a few blocks. (What else do you need on vacation?)

    Although we didn't feel obligated to hang out with Nika & Austin, they were easy to get along with and we all went to a Galaxy game one afternoon - super fun! I have a feeling we made some new lifelong friends and we definitely plan on staying with them again!

  • charming, well-located apartment... it was perfect for a quick stop through venice beach. nika and austin were welcoming and helpful.

  • Well located, just one block to beach. The room is not very spacious but that's ok. Nika and Austin are very nice and we do not forget their dog who can bark a lot but does not bite ;-) He is very nice also. Austin can give you good addresses for breakfast, lunch and diner around. Do not hesitate to ask him. The loan of their own bikes was well appreciated also. Some difficulty to park our rental car around, that was an exercise for us to understand the street sweeping days (Monday and Tuesday)...

  • I had a great stay with Nika & Austin. They're house is on a quiet residential street just by the beach, and the room was just what I needed for a quick weekend trip to Venice. Nika and Austin are really nice folks, and they were very responsive. I'd definitely stay here again.

  • Nika and Austin were warm, helpful hosts whose place couldn't be better located in Venice. The beach and a great cafe are steps away, they have bikes to borrow, and the scenes on both Rose Ave and Abbot Kinney are minutes away (not to mention the famous Gold's Gym). The room is also very lovely and quiet at night, so you'll have the chance to sleep off your sun tiredness in peace. Just be sure you like dogs because Carthage can bark quite a lot! But he's friendly after his usual commotion and never bites.

  • The room was clean, comfortable, and Nika was available and helpful—she let us stop by early and drop off our bags, and made sure it was easy to get to. The house has several people staying in it, so there was always someone home to say hi to—and when we went to bed super-early, they were really kind about letting us get a good night's sleep. We were only there for one quick night and they were very accommodating.

  • Nika and Austin were kind and wonderful hosts. We had an amazing time with them and wish we could have stayed longer. This is a beautiful home. The room was great and the bed was ridiculously comfortable. The location is amazing in a beautiful part of Venice beach. You can see the water from their doorstep and it was about a 5 minute walk from the water. We had bikes to use so we could go up and down the beach, which was also awesome... Highly recommend staying here! Thank you Nika and Austin! Oh, and they had an amazing dog named Carthage... We hope to see them all again :)

  • My girlfriend and I shared a private bedroom in Nika and Austin's home. The room was located on the second floor of the house, on which there were two other rooms (one occupied by Nika and Austin and another that was being rented at the time). There is one bathroom on the second floor, and it is designated the guest bathroom. It is in the hall, not connected to either guest room. There is also a bathroom downstairs. The bed we had was extremely comfortable. The room and the bathroom were clean. Nika and Austin were very accommodating and provided us with beach towels and blankets, a frisbee, a football, and were pleased to meet any of our requests. The house is a one-to-two minute walk to the beach. They have an adorable dog.
