One block to the beach, seven blocks to famous Abbott Kinney. Wood floors, large living room, equipped with washer and dryer. House is secure with locking gates on a charming walk street. The gated brick courtyard is private and serene with plenty of space. Guest bicycles always available for guests.
Experience classic summer beach living on one of Venice's famous walk streets. When you come through the gate and enter this shabby-chic, old-fashioned beach house, you will know that your holiday has begun for real. You will love the relaxed and casual atmosphere, suitable for singles, three couples or a family. Located a block from the sand - yes, you can see the ocean from the house! - you can hop on a beach bike and explore the famously colorful world of the Venice boardwalk, or grab your towel, walk to the sand and swim, surf, para-sail and more. And when you've had your fill of sun and sea, head to Main Street, where you will discover fine dining establishments and casual eateries to satisfy your every craving. Or whip up a meal in our big country kitchen, and lounge in front of the widescreen TV with Netflix.
There are 3 bedrooms upstairs with a Queen size bed in each room, and one of the bedrooms can also fit a twin size mattress. There are 2 bathrooms: one upstairs and one downstairs, large living/dining room, fully equipped kitchen, laundry room, cozy porch, and backyard with a fire pit.
A wonderful home and accommodating hosts. The house is in a great location, less than a 5 minute walk to the beach, lots of restaurants options near by. We walked to Santa Monica Pier (1.7 miles) and had brunch on the beach. We did not rent a car, but there are complimentary bikes to get around, and lots of uber/lyft around as well. The house is cozy, and the showers have good water pressure. The house is located on a busy street, and we could hear the car noise in the evenings, but didn't bother us since we are heavy sleepers. The front courtyard house is lovely with a small fire pit. Nika was extremely responsive and flexible. Would highly recommend!
Great place, as advertised. Best location if you like the beach and Venice. Main Street restaurants and bars are also around the corner. Spent the week of Christmas and had a blast. Fire pit outside was a treat for chilly evenings. Street parking only and no dish washer are 2 things to be aware of. Would recommend to any local hosting family (like me) or world traveller.
Nika and Austin's place was great - right by the beach and with plenty of amenities, including beach towels, cookware and a huge movie selection. And Nika and Austin themselves were great - friendly, helpful and very responsive. Would definitely recommend! The only thing to consider for light sleepers: as the other reviews mention, 2 of the 3 bedrooms are upstairs right above Pacific, so the traffic really doesn't die down until 11:30 at night or so.
nika and austin made us very welcome with great information and a welcoming bottle of champagne. The house was spacious with three god sized bedrooms for the six of us, a good lounge and dining area and a nice garden to sit in. The house was in a brilliant location to enjoy the delights of venice including the beach. It was also easy to access other parts of La like universal studios, la brea tar pits, getty centre and malibu. SO we had a great time. It was good being able to park one car by the house. The other car we had to park 3 or 4 blocks away the other side of main street. It was a bit nosiy at night being next to PAcific AVenue. All in all we had a greqt time. Thansks NIka and Austin. IAn
The place is radical and exactly what we wanted for our stay in Venice.
The house is extremely close the beach and you're in the thick of the boardwalk instantly. Up the road and you're at either Main Street or Abbott Kinney — plenty of shopping, convenience stores, etc. to be had.
We felt very at home at the Wonderful Venice Beach House — Nika and Austin are great — and we would stay there again in a heartbeat.
