Charming studio apartment by Interior Designer Laurence A.
This is a single apartment located on the second floor of our building with a beautiful and bright view on the roofs of the Venice canals.
The apartment has been completely redone and everything is super new.
You will have the use of one bedroom with a brand new queen matress, flat screen tv, high speed internet wifi, clock, iphone charger and blue tooth music. One full bathroom, brand new, one kitchenette,with a mini fridge, microwave, coffee machine, electric water kettle, toaster, dishes , dish towel etc...
We always leave tea and coffee , sugar, cream, honey, cereals , some snacks, olive oil and Balsamic Vinegar, salt and pepper, fresh water bottles in the fridge etc...
In the closet, you will find a beach bag with beach towels, a iron and and mini ironing board, a hair dryer and hair straightener.
In the drawers, you will find a first aid kit, some advil, rain umbrellas in case of rains ( it does not happen very often but still ...you will be set for everything !)
The furniture are all antiqued that have been restored and reupholstered with Love and Care.
The location is ideal, 3 blocks to the beach, just behind the famous Venice Canals, 2 blocks from The famous Abbot Kinney Boulevard with its trendy restaurants, and shops, across the street from the Venice public library and across the street from the Venice Farmers market on Friday morning.
This is a special place where you will experience calm and peace, relaxation,the special Venice Cool Vibe and at the same time close to everything.
If you have a car, we provide a parking space on premises. If you want to ride buses, you have a bus stop one block away, on Venice blvd. You also have 2 cruiser bicycles at your disposal in the garage, along with helmets and safety locks. there is plenty of Bikes lanes in Venice and if you want to not take you car and truly disconnect ...you can : I Havedone that once, staying there for 2 days and it just felt to me like I had been to a wonderful island ..yet I was in Los Angeles with everything this big city has to offer.
You will also find 2 beach chairs and a sun umbrella to insure your perfect time by the beach.
There is a little convenience store at the corner where you will find everything you will need. there is also , 5 minutes away , the best Whole food Market in the country ( Lincoln and Rose Avenue ).
Plenty of stores and boutiques all around, movie theaters, restaurant on Abbot Kinney , Rose and Washington and on the Famous Venice boardwalk.
If you get to the beach, turn right and you are almost immediately on the Venice Boardwalk and if you continue to Santa Monica and even to Malibu, riding you bike there is truly a treat. If you want a more peaceful walk I suggest turning left in direction of Marina del Rey.
Venice is a wonderful, magic neighborhood of Los Angeles where lots of celebrities are choosing to live. Its a special place of creativity, laid back " joie de vivre " , lots of Architects choose to live here ( Frank Gehry lives there with his family but Has also design lots of buildings ( see the Binocular building on Main street that was just purchased by a famous high tech company )
(Venice is now being called the Silicon Valley of the Pacific) .
To conclude, I would say that my little building in Venice is Magic and yet very modern . You will have a great time staying there weather you come for business or pleasure and you will want to return soon. (Not to brag...but See the 200 + wonderful reviews I have).
This apartment has just been finished and is the fith one we have in this building. we constantly improve and keep everything in top shape and we add a "Supplement D'ame" to everything we do.
You will feel it when you decide to stay here !

I stayed with a friend for three nights in this lovely Venice apartment. Everything was great! The apartment was exactly as on the pictures, maybe even bigger than expected. It was very clean, Laurence had provided all essentials, and the location was perfect! It was very convenient with the available parking spot and we had a great day cruising on the provided bikes on Venice beach. Would definitely recommend this place!
This is our second trip to Venice staying in one of Laurence's units. We love this location - walkable to everywhere in Venice and Marina del Rey. Right beside the canals too! Also includes a parking spot!! Worth a lot in Venice! It is easy to check in. The unit includes a little "kitchen" area for coffee and snacks. Nice feature. We will be back.
I had a wonderful experience. Laurence is a great host & very well organized. He made it convenient and simple for check in and provides all details needed for your stay. It's a great location, located right around the corner from the Venice canals and a 5 minute bike ride to the beach. I will definitely return for another weekend getaway soon! :)
Perfect quiet location in Venice Beach. The room had all the amenities we needed and more. Laurence was an excellent host.
It was our second time in Laurence's apartments and it was great. Will definitely recommend it to anyone going to Venice.
The room was clean, bright, and comfortable. A great location! Easy walking distance to my favorite restaurants and coffee places on Abbot Kinney Blvd. and the beach. Laurence provided amenities that you'd expect from a hotel. I'd come back here on my next trip.
Thanks Laurence for the wonderful experience. The room is nice and filled with almost the necessity we needed. I'm so happy to see a personal lot for our car so it not troublesome to find a lot around the neighborhood. The whole house is really clean just that the sound proving is quite bad when the neighbor opening the door and moving stuff. But overall is nice place and will definitely be coming back if i will to be in Los Angeles again. Thanks Laurence.
