The property is located on one of the most picturesque walk streets of Venice. Only 2 blocks from the trendy shops and restaurants on Abbott Kinney Blvd and a short walk from the famous Venice Canals. The Venice “walk streets” are another enchanting part of Venice’s history. Homes face each other separated by a footpath instead of a road. With an eclectic mix of architectural styles the walk streets are a great place to take a stroll in a car-free, pedestrian-friendly environment. This quiet "artsy" neighborhood is also close to the nightlife and activities of Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey and West Los Angeles - not to mention Venice Beach!

With free Wireless Internet and only a 15 minute drive from LAX airport this is an ideal hotel alternative for business travelers too!

Everything about this rental is fabulous. The guesthouse is beautifully fitted out with so many lovely touches to enhance your stay.The shower is wonderful,the bed ultra comfortable . Lovely to chill on the comfy couch browsing through the library of interesting reading material. But what makes this accommodation very special are the genuinely friendly host Maddy & John who cannot do enough to make your stay comfortable. Their generosity coupled with their warm sense of welcome & humour made our stay unforgettable. The Galway Girl.

We had a wonderful stay at Maddy's place, from check in to departure all went smoothly. I would highly recommend staying here if your in Venice Beach.

We enjoyed our stay at Maddy's place! The location is great. It is located in a quiet neighborhood away from all the hustle and bustle, yet is only a five minute walk to main shopping/restaurant area. The beach is also close by. The apartment was adorable and very clean, perfect for us! Unfortunately, Maddy was out of town so we didn't meet her but we did meet Siouxsie who checked us in and she was very nice and helpful. We really loved the complimentary bottle of wine, cheese and crackers, it was such a warm welcome!

Maddy User ProfileMaddy is a superhost.

Originally from Ireland (Dublin and Belfast) my husband John and I have lived in Ireland, England, Scotland, and Canada before eventually landing in Venice, California in 1986. Although we retain strong ties with the "old country" we absolutely love living in Venice. We love to travel and meet new people and Airbnb has allowed us to experience both, as guests and as hosts. As hosts we want to give our guests a comfortable and affordable place to stay and aim to leave our guests with fond memories of their visit to Venice.
