Best little spot in Venice.

The Space

Five Reasons This is the Best Deal in Venice:

1. Your cozy room is detached from the main house for extra privacy, has its own side entrance and feels like a little cabin in Big Bear.
2. You get to stay with me, my husband and brand new baby girl and well, we're pretty cool.
3. You can walk everywhere. Beach--3 blocks away. Abbot Kinney and all the best restaurants and shops--you can spit there. (Gross, but you catch my drift.) There's like 75 nearby yoga studios. Whole Foods--ten minute walk. Bus stop--half a block away.
4. Your room has a coffee/tea station, mini-fridge, filtered water, organic sheets, an iron, great natural light, wifi, and a desk for working (if you gotta).
5. You have access to the main house including the fabulous kitchen with great gadgets (like a Vitamix, food processor, mixer, etc), washer/dryer, the super cool shared bathroom as well as all the great outdoor spaces.

What else?

We are nice people. We're super easy going, our place is clean (though we do like to cook up a storm in the kitchen and that means the occasional explosion that we clean up). We are both actors and I also work as an acting coach which means the occasional client in my office. We love to be outside and have a regular yoga and meditation practice. We enjoy helping our guests out with recommendations for cool stuff to do if needed. We are pretty busy so we aren't always around a lot, but we do enjoy a little chat here and there if you are keen. Or you can use your private entrance and never see anyone unless you have to pee. Then you gotta come inside.

On that note, you do need to go outside to get to the main house (including the bathroom) so you gotta be down with that. We used to have our room out there and we loved it. It's kind of magical. The bed is a full/double sized comfy, brand new mattress.

There is filtered water for drinking as well as in the shower. We use all natural cleaning products for extra goodness. When needed, all rooms are warmed up with space heaters.

We'd also be happy to let you borrow our extra thrasher bike if you need it, but no guarantee...Just in case it goes wonky.

There's usually plenty of parking in the alley where you enter our house. Otherwise it's easy to park on the closest street.

We are always a non-smoking house. (I mean, come on, we don't even use Windex.)

Pets may kind of be a tiny bit negotiable.

Let me know if you have any questions, I'll be happy to help!

  • It was a great experience to stay at Sarah´s and Matt´s Place! They both are very easy going, super friendly and helpful - even made a dinner reservation for us in their favorite restaurant (go there!!).
    Their bungalow is as awsome as it looks from the pictures - even more. Never seen a home like this, with so much love for details and so ...special! :)
    Thank you!! We would love to come back on the next trip!

  • Very cute en private studio and the location is perfect. Just a few minutes away from the beach and Abbot Kinney. Matt and Sarah are very good hosts, kind, helpfull and easy to talk to. My boyfriend and I would definitely book this studio again when in Venice.

  • Staying with Sarah and Matt was lovely. My fiancé and I were in LA for three nights and found Venice Beach to be an awesome, chilled out little neighbourhood with AMAZING food and coffee. Everything was walking distance from the house!

    Their home was simply divine - so charming. Really laid back and relaxing which made us feel at home immediately, and our room had everything that we needed. It felt like we were waking up in a little treehouse which added to the appeal.

    There are so many different places to enjoy the sunshine and read a book at their place - I've never seen a home use space so well! Sarah and Matt were both extremely welcoming and helpful - full of great tips on where to go and what to see.

    Thanks so much for your hospitality guys :) We'll be back!

My husband Matt and I are both actors and have a business coaching actors as well. I have lived in this truly unique home for ten years and its beauty and ridiculously close vicinity to the beach and outstanding Venice neighborhood has us planted here for some time to come. We love to travel and can often be found camping, on a surf trip somewhere or maybe even off trudging around in some cool foreign county we haven't visited yet. We are often described by people we meet as "the coolest couple ever", which may be taking it a bit far, but I must say, we are pretty happy and are living the life we desire, so it probably shows.
