This 3 story house is 50 meters from the progressive Abbot Kinney Bl, and it is 600 meters, straight down Winward to the heart of the Venice Board Walk. Your room is a minute bike ride to the beach, but far enough away for peace of mind. You are in walking distance to Main Street, lower Santa Monica, Venice Canals, buses, taxi's, shops, restaurants. For your morning coffee or tea, Intelligentsia is a stones throw away. This flat is on the West side of Abbot Kinney, just off Winward. Goldilocks would find this local, just right.
The beauty about this space is that it is so close to all that Venice, Santa Monica, and Marina Del Rey has to offer... yet it is tranquil, hip, and beautiful. I used to live in an apt just off the boardwalk and its flat out crazy there and I can write from experience that 'this is the way to do Venice'.
It is an all natural house hold. All cotton linens, towels, no chemical cleaners or fragrances. Water filters are provided for drinking and showers. Enjoy the wireless internet, queen bed, and small desk / work station in your room; and you have access to a printer if you need it. You also have a small outdoor patio just outside your room.
As for you host, Matt makes a raw superfood line of mylks, puddings, and skin cream. Visit his site, thefeelgoodlounge. He also performs stand up, takes improv and writing classes.....Matt also loves to play tennis.
p.s.- there are 5 bikes available to guests. Parking: it is street parking, plus sharing of a private space if needed. Street parking is plentiful, just out front or in back of the flat. The only caveats are street sweeping for 2 hours on Mon / Tues, and it gets tight on Sat and Sun from 12 to 6. With a little local knowledge, parking is easy. Every evening is wide open, as well as all weekdays.
Bikes, Lounge Room, Backyard and Limited Kitchen use. DIY breakfast, including complimentary: fresh fruit, oatmeal, teas, and coffee. On demand boiling water is provided as well as cold and room temp filtered water. Refrigerator and toaster also accessible. This is a petite and vegetarian kitchen used for simple and mostly raw food preparations.
2012 BMW 328i for rent - $50/day - all inclusive.
Interaction with Guests
After check in, guests might run into me in the kitchen or if Im working in the backyard.
Beautiful, artistic homes and tree lined streets make the immediate area a treasure. A 5 minute walk puts you on the Venice boardwalk or canals. Abbot Kinney is a stones throw away, so you've got some of LA's best cafe's, restaurants, and boutiques just around the corner.
There is so much to explore on foot and bike, but there are numerous bus stops with in a 5 minute walk from the house, that will take you anywhere in LA. There are 5 complimentary guest bikes as well.
Other Things to Note
You may request samples of my sprouted almond mylks and superfood puddings and they are available for sale.
Welcome to a slice of historic Venice. The blue bungalows were built in the early 1900's on the original canal network. Please walk gingerly up the spiral stairs and be mindful of other guests and neighbors. Complimentary food and drink is located in the main lounge room, where you can also enter and exit the house and use bikes. I work hard to keep the house free of chemical detergents and fragrances and appreciate if you do too. If you leave house early or late, please use back door entry/exit. The spiral stairs are available from 9am to 9pm.
Matthew's place was nothing short of perfect. He always had delicious treats waiting for us downstairs, free bikes for us to use and the most comfortable bed in our third story private room. Located just far enough to escape the craziness of Venice Beach but close enough if you want to hop over there, and situated right next to the ever-trendy Abbot Kinney strip. Definitely going to hit up Matthew next time we're in LA!
Matthew's place is the perfect place to stay in LA. In a beautiful street around the corner of hip Abbot Kinney. You can explore the neighborhood with one of Matthew's bikes. A super friendly host! Defenitely recommend this place. Hope to be back!
Matthew was a fantastic host and extremely accommodating. The room is an excellent alternative to others and is very comfortable, has an excellent location and very private. We plan on returning on our next trip to Venice Beach.
This is a great little historic spot one block from the heart of Abbot Kinney shops and restaurants and a 5 minute bike ride from the beach and Venice boardwalk. Free bikes included. Matthew was really helpful and there for us anytime. The room is really small, but cozy. Great bed. No kitchen facilities. Two flights of stairs up to the room, but makes for a sunny and open view over the trees and rooftops.
Matthews small house is wonderful and it’s in a great vibrant neighborhood with a lot of nice coffees and restaurants. We have stayed in the master bedroom on the top of the house. The room and interieur are great and clean and the best is the lovely private balcony. Matthew is providing breakfast , coffee and fruits for free and some bikes for great rides along the beach as well. He is is an uncomplicated, helpful and a well organized host. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to be able to stay here again.
Great location. Right behind all the cool main cafe and shops in Venice. Lovely gracious host. Comfy bed. I enjoyed my stay here : )
Matthew was welcoming and very thorough. Location super convenient to Venice Beach, Abbott Kinney Blvd., and Santa Monica. Loved using the bikes to cruise around the neighborhoods. His space was set up with little conveniences just in case you forgot something.

I am 46 years old and have lived in Venice Bch for 11 years. I moved from the hyper-active boardwalk area, to what locals consider to be a most blissful spot in Venice Bch. Some call it the best street in Venice. The house is part of the original canal network and was once an original tourist bungalow. I make and distribute a line of raw / superfood puddings and sprouted almond mylks - from the house. You can learn (email hidden). I am also studying and performing stand up comedy, improv,and taking writing -story telling classes.....oh, and I love to play tennis.
