About this listing
Our jacuzzi is steaming, and our funky Venice
home is available for you to enjoy this week while we travel the Great Lakes...
Walk to Abbot Kinney and Venice Beach via the Canals from our unique, magical & super comfortable, bohemian Venice home.
Enjoy the sun and stars from our expansive roof deck with its steaming jacuzzi, tiki bar & lounging area.
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!.
Bamboo floors & wood burning fireplace with Stearns &Foster queen mattress in Master bedroom.
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!
Treat it as you would treat your own...
No parties! We live in a family neighborhood.
Feel free to use the jacuzzi, but please, no noise on the roof after 9pm.
If you break something, let us know and we'll figure it out.
Please leave our home as you found it
