This 3 story house is 50 meters from the progressive Abbot Kinney Bl, and it is 600 meters, straight down Winward to the heart of the Venice Board Walk. The house is a minute bike ride to the beach, but far enough away for peace of mind. You are in walking distance to Main Street, lower Santa Monica, Venice Canals, buses, taxi's, shops, restaurants. For your morning coffee or tea, Intelligentsia is a stones throw away. This flat is on the West side of Abbot Kinney, just off Winward. Goldilocks would find this local, just right.
The beauty about this space is that it is so close to all that Venice, Santa Monica, and Marina Del Rey has to offer... yet it is tranquil, hip, and beautiful. I just moved from an apt on the boardwalk after 8 years, and I can write from experience that 'this is the way to do Venice'.
It is an all natural house hold. All cotton linens, towels, no chemical cleaners or fragrances. Water filters are provided for drinking and showers. You get wireless internet, a queen bed, and small desk / work station in your room; as well as access to a printer. You also have a small outdoor patio just outside your room.
As for you host, Matt makes a raw superfood line of mylks, puddings, and skin cream. You can check his site at thefeelgoodlounge. He also performs stand up, takes improv and writing classes.....Matt also loves to play tennis.
p.s.- there are bikes available to guests. Parking: it is street parking, plus sharing of a private spot, if needed. Parking is plentiful, just out front or in back of the flat. The only caveats are street sweeping for 2 hours on Mon / Tues, and it gets tight on Sat and Sun from 12 to 6. With a little local knowledge, parking is easy. Every evening is wide open, as well as all weekdays.
Bikes, Lounge Room, Backyard and LIMITED Kitchen use. DIY breakfast, including complimentary: fresh fruit, oatmeal, teas, and coffee. On demand boiling water is provided as well as cold and room temp filtered water. Keurig Coffee w/ Starbucks K-cups are available. Refrigerator and toaster also accessible. This is a petite and vegetarian kitchen used for simple and mostly raw food preparations.
Interaction with Guests
I will interact with guests if I am in the kitchen and they are passing through. I am on a different floor than the guest rooms, so interaction takes place on the main floor. Guest rooms are on the 2nd and 3rd floors.
Beautiful, artistic homes and tree lined streets make the immediate area a treasure. A 5 minute walk puts you on the Venice boardwalk or canals. Abbot Kinney is a stones throw away, so you've got some of LA's best cafe's, restaurants, and boutiques just around the corner.
BMW - 2012 328i available to rent for $50/day - includes insurance.
Major bus hubs and stops are within a 2 minute walk and taxi's are also just minutes away. Bikes are complimentary and a great way to take in the boardwalk and Santa Monica Pier.
Other Things to Note
You may request samples of my sprouted almond mylks and superfood puddings and they are available for (website hidden) 2012 328i available for $50/day.
Welcome to a slice of historic Venice. The blue bungalows were built in the early 1900's on the original canal network. Please walk gingerly up the spiral stairs and be mindful of other guests and neighbors. Complimentary food and drink is located in the main lounge room, where you can also enter and exit the house and use bikes. I work hard to keep the house free of chemical detergents and fragrances and appreciate if you do too. If you leave house early or late, please use back door entry/exit. The spiral stairs are available from 9am to 9pm.
What a great experience at Matthew's place. The room is a perfect size for a couple and has all the comfort you will need for a little get away at Venice Beach. The bed is really comfortable and the shower is amazing!
The room is almost inviting you to get out and enjoy the outside since the back door gives you a beautiful view of the neighborhood.
The amenities are great since there is always coffee and a few fruits and snacks.
I HIGHLY recommend that place.
We absolutely loved our stay at Matt's place. He was a wonderful host and had everything we needed for our short stay with him. Our room had its own entrance through the spiral staircase, which was perfect for us while leaving early or getting back late. The bikes available to us were also super useful, and we used them both days to bike on the beach and get around Venice and Santa Monica. I loved Matt's house and its aesthetic, especially the lovely decor and lights he had out in the backyard patio area. There was a little table in the common area with coffee, tea, oatmeal, gingerbread cookies, and even some beer and wine. Before going to dinner one night, my boyfriend and I sat outside and drank a glass of wine while playing Matt's guitar, which was absolutely wonderful. All in all, a great stay! I'll definitely call on Matt when I'm in LA next.
The location is fantastic! It's a great spot to launch into exploring Venice. A couple of minutes walk to Intelligencia coffee. Mathew was super friendly and there is definitely a relaxed Californian vibe to staying here which is great. The bikes are an added bonus too!
Matthew was accessible and helpful. Prime location blocks from charming Abbott Kinney shops. Uber comfortable bed!
Très beau séjour chez Matthew. Le quartier est calme, fleuri, coloré et se trouve à proximité de la plage et des canaux.
Nous avons apprécié le prêt de vélos et avons pu nous rendre sur la jetée de Santa Monica (très belle promenade) très rapidement.
Matthew habite à proximité de commerces et de restaurants et nous a fourni de bonnes adresses pour se restaurer.
A really nice place, close to the beach and to Abbot Kinney, what more can you ask for?. Quiet location. Matthew is a great host, very helpful. With the bikes you get around Venice and Santa Monica.
I would highly recommend Matthew's place, I had a great time.

I am 46 years old and have lived in Venice Bch for 11 years. I moved from the hyper-active boardwalk area, to what locals consider to be a most blissful spot in Venice Bch. Some call it the best street in Venice. The house is part of the original canal network and was once an original tourist bungalow. I make and distribute a line of raw / superfood puddings and sprouted almond mylks - from the house. You can learn (email hidden). I am also studying and performing stand up comedy, improv,and taking writing -story telling classes.....oh, and I love to play tennis.
