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 !
Come and enjoy ! Ill be happy to host you !
It was awesome staying at Laurence's place during our short trip to Los Angeles. My husband and I loved the decor as well as the welcoming vibe as we entered the place. The light, the music, and a hand-written note from Laurence was a pleasant surprise! :) Laurence's apartment was clean and well-equipped with everything that was shown through the picture on Airbnb, and we were thankful for the little things that she had available at her place (e.g. bottled water, snacks, toiletries, ear plugs, etc.). Her apartment is literally right by the famous Venice Canals, and it was breathtaking as we took at stroll around the neighborhood during sundown. My husband and I appreciated the readily available bikes as we took the opportunity to go for a ride along the Venice Beach. The only "downfall" was the amount of noise we were able to hear from the unit right by the place we stayed. Thank goodness for the ear plugs! All in all, my husband and I would totally stay at Laurence's place again if we were to visit LA again in the future.
Super cute little one bedroom with a half kitchen. I was in LA for a week for work and was so happy to have a little space to my own near the beach and Abott Kinney. Fab spot.
Solid place, nice location, called hosts with any requests and they were quick to respond.
À word : perfect! quite very clean and Well décorated we felt like at home ! Nice area . Thanks we had à Nice stay!
I LOVED staying at Lawrence's studio apt. It is so well furnished, yummy quilts and pillows. They host thinks of everything, even chocolates when you arrive. The kitchenette is well stocked. The best part is the use of the bikes with helmet and locks. What a great place....
It was after 4pm and we were looking for last minute accommodation, which can be tricky on Arib BnB. Luckily we came across Laurence Agi's place and because of the automatic approval and self check-in it was a perfect option. Upon arrive at the apartment we were completely blown away with how perfectly appointed everything was (mini soaps and shampoos, bikes for use, cheerful decor and there was even classical music playing!). Even had it not been for our last minute restrictions I would have chosen this place out of all the others in Venice Beach! We loved everything about it and don't have a single complaint. I can't wait to go back soon and I'd definitely like to rebook here.
I stayed in Laurence's Venice apartment this past weekend for 3 nights with a friend of mine. We absolutely loved it! It is in the PERFECT location-close to bus stops, blocks from the beach, shops, restaurants, etc. Laurence was an excellent host as well! He left us with snacks, water bottles, coffee, and even a gift card to a store nearby. The apartment came with everything you could ever want. The TV had so many channels and we used the provided bikes to get around a lot! Overall, we had the best experience with Airbnb and with Laurence. I highly recommend this apartment and will definitely stay here again!
The Venice apts are the greatest location and Laurence's touches are perfect. Aspects of the apartment felt like a five star hotel, like the high quality sheets and products in the bathroom. Yet, there are also personal touches you can't get at a fancy hotel, like a beach bag ready to go, the cruiser bikes, complimentary snacks and free WiFi. Laurence is also an excellent concierge, and always responded right away to any questions. I feel lucky that this was my first AirBnb experience!
So bright and colorful loved our stay. Laurence thought of ever little think you would need.
We enjoyed our stay loved the bikes as well.
Laurence's apartment was absolutely beautiful. It was pretty close to Venice beach and the canals. It's everything you would need and you get to experience the Venice beach lifestyle like a local: the farmers market across the street, first fridays on Abbot Kinney (Which we highly recommend going to by the way). All the furniture is hand picked by Laurence, who is clearly a fabulous interior designer and a very sweet person. Beach, sun, fun and excitement what else can you want?!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
