Welcome to Venice's Vortex land, a 2014 remodeled tri-level 2,000 square feet 4 bedroom 4 bath unit with a balcony on the boardwalk with ocean and boardwalk views. The Jim Morrison room is one of the two themed Air B n B rooms in vortex land.

Guest Access

You will have access to a very cool kitchen with everything you need for cooking with ocean views, a shared balcony that overlooks the boardwalk and has ocean views, an onsite coin operated washer and dryer, and a shared community beach cruiser.

Interaction with Guests

I live in the building upstairs and do not work much. I will meet and greet you and will be available to help you get the most out of your Venice trip.

The Neighborhood

This building is located on the Venice boardwalk, next to muscle beach, walking distance to everything.

You will be fixed on the balcony, where you will have a rare front seat view to watch the decay of modern civilization that unfolds on the boardwalk everyday. It is a train wreck that you can not stop watching. It is addictive.

Getting around

If you have to rent a car, rent a small car, big cars are tough to park in Venice. The best way to get around is on a bike.

Other Things to Note

There is a small cute dog (Bodhi) that lives in the unit. He is quiet, not a barker. You can rent a parking spot for $25/night.
You will have to change your sheets when you leave and clean up the bathroom, otherwise you will be charged a $50 maid fee.

  • My 1st West Coast USA visit & i wasn't disappointed... I felt right at home immediately, Gary was unbelievably helpful & the energy of the others who live there as well as Gary & other guests was relaxed, positive & very friendly. Right in the centre of all the Venice Beach action as well as quiet at night & an extremely comfortable bed. Thank you Gary & everyone else who made my 2 days perfect :0)

  • I had the opportunity to stay at "the Jim" and it was awesome. Gary was the perfect host - communicating well in advance and flexible with my arrival time. He was super from the second I arrived and helped me with my bag up the stairs and gave me the quick tour. The location is awesome right on the Venice Beach Boardwalk - by the Muscle Beach Gyms. I only interacted briefly with the other housemates but they were awesome as well. The room was perfect for my brief work trip but wish I had a few more days to just hang out there. Even one more day and I would had my hair done at the in house salon! Oh - and the room was great too - bright and cheery with a really comfy bed! It is very clear Gary has lots of experience as a host - and as a host myself I picked up an idea or two from him as well. I hope to return again soon!!!

  • This was my first time using Airbnb and I was pleasantly surprised. I stayed at three different places in LA and Gary’s place was by far the best. It offers all the amenities a hotel. However, you just have to clean up after yourself.

    The location is also amazing. You are in the heart of Venice Beach. There is plenty to see and do. I liked staying on the boardwalk and being able to relax on the beach.

    The entire unit was kept clean and the bed was very comfortable. I also liked that my room had a door lock on it.

    Everyone staying in the unit was very friendly. Furthermore, Gary was flexible on the check-in and out time which made moving between places easier. If I am in LA again, I will plan to book a room at Gary’s place.

  • We had a great time at this location. The room was clean, comfortable and the location was great: smack right on the beach. Walking on the 'boardwalk' as well as to Abbot Kinney was super easy. Gary was extremely responsive and receptive and we'd definitely recommend this place to other travelers. Thanks so much for a delightful stay!

  • My stay here was great. The Jim Morrison room is cool and located perfectly on Venice Beach. Gary was a really good host, informing where to go and what to see. Taking the bike and exploring up and down the beach was awesome.
