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.

Pretty guest house located behind Maddy's home. It was located in one of the best walking (private) streets in venice. So close to Abbot Kinney and all the great shops and restaurants. Glad we stayed here and not on the boardwalk as the guest house was so relaxing and quiet. Wish we could have stayed longer. Maddy provides everything you could need amenities wise and having milk already in the fridge was a huge win as i am an avid tea drinker! thanks again!

My daughter and I loved staying here. The apartment is in the back of a beautiful home on one of the area's quaint walk streets. It's one room, but perfectly outfitted, with lots of nice, thoughtful touches: a well equipped kitchen corner; a lending library; a notebook with handy tips and information; cleaning supplies; extra toiletries; beach towels and an umbrella, etc. The patio area was so pleasant to sit in, also outfitted with a heater and umbrella. The space was beautiful, clean and very private, and the hosts couldn't have been nicer, answering my texts rapidly, letting us check in early, and even supplying us with wine, cheese, crackers and coffee! It was a real treat, and I hope to come back one day.

Maddy, is an amazing host! She anticipates any need you may have. The place is super clean the bed is quite comfy and although the space is small it feels roomy and airy. The packets she provides are well put together and informative! The pedestrian walkway that it is located on is alive with charm! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and plan on staying here again! Yay!

I had never been to a house on a "residential street" and it was initially confusing to reach with GPS. That was my lack of preparation and being a first time Airbnb user. After getting there and adjusting, the walk down the street to get to the house and guest house was fun and refreshing. The house was smaller than I felt the pictures online presented but was still very comfortable. We would stay there again. All of the amenities were great and the bath/shower was very nice.

I had a wonderful stay at Maddy's and John's. My flight arrived very early in the morning and Maddy was kind enough to accept my bags early so I could explore Venice beach freely. The warm cup of tea and chat was also greatly appreciated! The cottage was beautiful and very homelike. Comfortable, warm and inviting. Exactly as pictured and described. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay near Venice Beach. Wonderful central location and walkable to all the main attractions.

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.
