The Common House was a classic Californian Bungalow. A very cool pad perfect for two couples. The location is on a quiet, residential street, close to Wholefoods and Rose Street, however you will need a car or Uber to get around - cheap and widely available. With a great outdoor entertaining space and all kitchen amenities for cooking this was an extremely comfortable place close to Venice and Santa Monica.
The house is clean and stylish and located in a nice neighborhood in Venice. We particularly loved the spacious kitchen and outdoor area. Street parking was very easy to find. Overall, it was a good experience.
We really enjoyed staying in the Common House in Venice. The location was unsurpassed and the house, itself, looked exactly like the photos. The host was responsive, check-in was smooth, the house was clean with ample supplies to live comfortably for our week and the neighborhood was nice. It was easy getting to and from the house when traveling around southern CA. I definitely recommend the this house to anyone traveling to LA wanting to enjoy the California lifestyle.

We loved this place! Very comfortable, great beds, and it really felt like a little retreat from the Venice bustle. Very close to lots of action, but still relaxing. Great spot.
