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!

Please note that like our home, the guesthouse does not have air conditioning. As it remains fairly cool being so close to the beach it is rarely needed. It does, however, have an overhead fan and we have recently added a full room oscillating tower fan with remote control plus a table top oscillating tower fan should the weather get very hot.

Pleasant courtyard to sit in and have some quiet time.

For your comfort we have a Two adult (or one adult and one child) maximum occupancy.

The guesthouse is a separate unit located at the back of our property.** Guests access the unit and back patio area through our front gate and down a path that runs along the side of our house. If you have a lot of luggage we suggest that you first check in then we can give you the remote to open the gate to our back alley to drop off your bags.

**Our back yard is divided into an upper and lower patio. The lower patio is adjacent to the guesthouse and is reserved for the sole use of our guests. We respect our guests privacy and will do our best not to disturb you during your stay.

We have two 21 speed bicycles, available with baskets and helmets, for rent at $15 each per day. There are plenty of bicycle rent options on the beach as well.

We can also arrange Private City tours & discount theme park tickets - please inquire at time of booking as these require advance notice

No smoking permitted inside guesthouse (may smoke in courtyard). Sorry, no pets and no parties.

$125 per night for stays of 2 nights or more. Rates are based on a 2 night minimum but we will consider one night stays for $150 per night. A standard $50 cleaning fee will be added for stays of 3 days or more - this fee is not charged by Airbnb and is due upon departure.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We loved our stay at John and Maddy's. The apartment was so clean and beautifully decorated. The location was perfect, and the small footpath to get to their house feels like a little oasis in LA.

    We will definitely be looking to stay here for our next trip! Thanks for the wonderful accommodations!

  • What a great place!
    Fabulous little guesthouse in a cool neighborhood.
    Walk to the beach, shops, restaurants and supermarkets. Perfect.
    Maddy and John are such nice and fun people. Our stay was wonderful.

  • I have to say that this is definitely one of the best places I've stayed at on airbnb. John and Maddy we very informative about the area and made us feel very much at home. Parking is widely available. The area is tranquil and the house faces a walking path away from the hustle and bustle of the board walk. The guesthouse was tidy and full of LA area travel books to help you plan your next move. I would highly recommend staying at their guesthouse and would consider them again.

  • This place is incredible. John & Maddy live in one of the most desirable parts of Venice on a walk street that is just a few minutes away from Abbott Kinney and the beach. It's close enough that you feel like you're in the middle of everything, but in a very quiet part of the neighborhood so you can withdraw to your own retreat when you need a break. The guest house is clean and tastefully decorated. John & Maddy are charming, helpful, and respectful of guests' privacy. If it's available, I'll stay here again on my next trip to LA.

  • This was one of the loveliest Airbnb spots my girlfriend and I have ever stayed in. It's in a stunningly beautiful and charming neighborhood — it's unreal — and John and Maddy were super on top of things. The room had a fully stocked fridge, exceptionally modern amenities (excellent showerhead), and was full of guides and other resources for getting around Venice and LA in general. Definitely one of the best Airbnb experiences I've had. Highly recommended!

  • John and Maddy are wonderful and welcoming hosts. The guesthouse is just perfect, beautifully decorated, with everything you might need. We also loved the location, the neighbourhood is just beautiful, very charming and very close to Abbot Kinney. Would definitely stay here again.

    March 2014
  • This cottage is amazing. So clean and furnished beautifully. The hosts are do gracious and helpful. The setting and location is perfect. I loved having two bikes to get around this charming neighborhood. I was sad to leave their place. It felt like home away from home which is on the cold east coast.

    March 2014
  • Loved staying at this cute guesthouse, even if it was only for a day and change. My only regret, was not being able to hang out with John and Maddy... I had just ran the LA Marathon and rested the whole time. Will be definitely coming back.

    March 2014
  • I don't think I can begin to describe how perfect john and maddie's guest house is!! It literally has every amenity you could ever dream of, is beautiful, comfortable and warm. As a resident of LA for 10 years, I stumbled upon a part of town I didn't know existed. I had the best time and hope I have the pleasure to visit again!! Thank you for sharing your warm and special home!!!
