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!

Great location! Minutes from Ralph's grocery store and 10 minutes to the Santa Monica Pier. Very cozy and tucked away from the traffic of Venice. Highly recommend Maddy's place.

Our stay was better than expected! The cottage is darling and in the perfect location for seeing the sights of Venice and surrounding area. We would definitely return!

We had a wonderful stay in Venice. The place was impeccably clean and well furnished. The neighbourhood was a lovely place to be. We especially enjoyed Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice Canals and a beach cycle ride. Maddy and John were both so friendly, welcoming and full of good tips and advice. We would recommend this to anyone staying in LA.

Lovely guesthouse that was really nicely decorated and very comfortable. Walking distance from Venice beach, and it was near the Venice canals too which were lovely.

This charming apartment was truly fantastic. We were made to feel at home before we even arrived thanks to brilliant communication and there were no problems during our stay. The apartment definitely amplified our experience in L.A. and for that, I can highly recommend it. Thanks so much!!

This was our first time staying the night in Venice. This quiet and quaint studio was a wonderful place to stay. The hosts provided us with wine and cheese! The only negative thing I could say is that we weren't aware that there wasn't central air conditioner in the studio. It gets a little warm at night in the summertime without central AC but they had a portable air conditioner that helped quite a bit!

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.
