Live like a local with accommodation to rival any hotel - for less!!

Situated in the grounds of a private home, this detached cottage/guesthouse comes with everything you need for an enjoyable stay in a tranquil setting within walking distance to restaurants, bars, and the beach!

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!

- 2 blocks from the shopping and restaurants on trendy Abbott Kinney Blvd

- A 10 minute walk to the famous Venice Canals

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.
