Other Things to Note
We live in this lovely house with our sweet dog Carthage, who is always excited to meet new people.
If someone needs to leave their luggage after check out time, it's not a problem. You can leave it in the lounge as long as you like it.
Location was awesome! So close to the boardwalk. I wasn't in the house much, as it was my last day at Venice, and I was only staying a night. The hosts were accommodating and friendly. Lax was so close to the house compared to driving from Orange County. I was grateful they were able to accept my last minute request. :)
Nika and Austin are wonderful warm hosts. Every need was anticipated and provided for. We walked everywhere, our rental car was not used as we anticipated. The house is in a dreamy location and we took advantage with a 2 year old. The dog, Carthidge, and kitty, Winston, were gentle and tolerant with my daughter providing hours of entertainment. There was a stroller, beach towels, beach toys, baby shampoo, coffee, cream, and one night they made us dinner! This is a warm home that graciously hosts a continuous stream of guests with ease. We enjoyed our time and look forward to returning.
The hosts and their awesome pets made us feel right at home. They were helpful, laid-back and accommodating. Description was accurate and of coarse the location is superb. Would definitely stay here again.
Nika and Austin are gracious and friendly hosts. They were very welcoming and made me feel comfortable in their beautiful home. It was great that the place was so close to the beach, you can walk there in less than 5 mins. If you're looking for a place in Venice, I'd highly recommend this charming house.
Our trip to Venice was awesome. And mostly due to our hosts.
Nika and Austin are great - they know neighbourhood perfectly and have a lot of suggestions where to go to party or for a lunch.
They are glad to provide you with a bike or a beach towel.
The house is located just minutes form a beach and just 20 minute walk from Santa Monica Pier. Our room was clean and neat with a separate private guest bath.
