About this listing

Our cozy living room, with its raw wood vaulted ceiling and textured walls, contains a piano, 42 inch flat screen TV with DVD and cable, turntable and vintage albums, and unique collectibles from around the world.
Large, fully stocked open kitchen with vintage O'Keefe and Merritt stove, cozy dining nook and wood walls...juicer, coffee maker, etc..
Lovely bathroom with huge step-in tub/shower has great water pressure and is big enough for two!.

Fanciful art tree, faux cloudy walls with plush full bed in whimsical 2nd bedroom.
Full length french doors and windows lead to the backyard filled with bamboo, bougainvillea, and of course a large gas grill and comfortable seating areas.
Feel free to snip fresh herbs from our garden to add to your meals!
Expansive roof deck with Tiki Bar, lounge area with full futon and steaming jacuzzi.
There is a detached, occupied studio space across the back yard. My elderly mom lives there. She keeps to herself - you might see her cross the backyard to go to her Sr. Center in the morning and coming back in the afternoon. Otherwise she hangs inside and watches Dodgers games...Someone will be checking on her once a day.. other than that you would have full privacy in the backyard and you would have the upstairs deck all to yourselves..
We have 2 indoor/outdoor cats-mostly hang out outside, and kind of nervous around people, but super sweet and adorable...(they're rescues so we're still building trust).
Wifi, cable, Netflix, and lots of games...
Our home can sleep six: Queen bed in master bedroom, double bed in 2nd bedroom, and sleeper sofa in the living room.
Our guests have exclusive use of our front yard and large roof deck with lounging area, tiki bar and jacuzzi.
Guests also have full access to the backyard including gas grill & seating areas.
Access to the back studio is through the side gate and back yard.
If possible I like to greet my guests and show you around.
If I'm out of town I'll leave the key and give detailed (website hidden) named Abbot Kinney the "Coolest Block In America".
Art and artists abound, mixed with surfers and techies as Venice has recently been named "Silicon Beach"
Walk to Abbot Kinney, Venice Beach, the Canals, Marina Del Rey.
There are 2 funky vintage bikes, and a small bike for a child for your use.
Easy access to LAX (10 minutes with no traffic!), bus lines, etc...
Public transportation is easily accessible, although once you arrive you may want to go local and stay west of Lincoln!
There is no cleaning fee for 3 days or more.
If you are renting for one or two nights, a $75 cleaning fee will apply.
Treat it as you would treat your own...
No large, loud, late parties as we live in a family neighborhood, although you are more than welcome to enjoy hanging with your friends...
If you break something, let us know and we'll figure it out.
Leave it close to the same way you found it
Making music is strongly encouraged...
Enjoy our home!
Really unique place. Just what we wanted @ Venice. Highly recommend it.
We had a great stay at this Bohemian home. It was a lovely break from hotel rooms to find ourselves in such a quirky home with fantastic roof top garden and Jacuzzi. Great selection of vinyl records and a piano to play. Hostess was very accommodating. Would definitely recommend a visit here.
Lisa was a great host. She tried everything she can to make herself available and was willing to answer any question I had. The house itself was really cozy and near the beach. Really comfy stay.
Lisa sent all the house details in an email and was very thorough which made staying there easy. She was constantly available for questions too. Her house was as described, fantastic little get-away!
It was like spending few days in a friend's house, Lisa is really nice and helpful ! La maison est très agréable dans son style, elle fait très cocon au milieu de toute l'activité de Venice, un petit havre de paix.
Lisa was a wonderful host and we very much enjoyed our stay at her home. It's very easy to feel at home here and the rooftop patio is the perfect place to hang out on a warm southern Cal afternoon. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great stay in Venice.
Great location. Very cool rooftop patio and lounge area with jacuzzi above back garage/studio space. The rooftop area is over an occupied studio that is also a separate space with a private back patio separating two living spaces.
The house itself is charming but does not sleep 6 as advertised. It is a 2 bed, 1 bath: master and smaller second bedroom
for small kids or 1 adult. Host provided air mattress to compensate for smaller bed and pull out couch in living room as options.
Also, travelers be wary host lives there so there are no extra dressers for clothes and things. The fridge/freezer pretty full so bring coolers or plan accordingly. The studio in back was not listed as part of rental option but would be the perfect space for a second couple ( extra bathroom, shower, tv-cable, sink)
I think the space is cute and would be awesome if the occupied studio were part of package rental deal going forward. It was very pricey for the set up as advertised without the studio for 4 adults and kid.
Hey Steve, Thanks for your review! We have reduced our prices since your stay, since you were here over New Year's Eve, and were paying a holiday premium. In addition, we don't charge a cleaning fee for stays over 2 nights so our price is quite competitive. I knew when you we received your note that our place is "roots", that you would feel at home! I was surprised that you felt our 2nd bedroom was too small-it has a standard double bed as advertised. When you asked to use our studio space (which was vacant at the time), and I asked for a small extra charge ($50), then even lowered the price ($25) you chose not to take it. When I told you that we had interested renters for the studio you were upset that anyone would be back there (although it was advertised as occupied ). I then offered to let you just use the studio free of charge, refusing plentiful offers for New Year's Eve rentals since you were paying holiday prices for our home and I wanted you to be happy. Still the studio remained unused. Nonetheless, I'm really glad you enjoyed our home and roof deck!
