Abbot Kinney, where you can shop for antiques and eat in hip fab restaurants, is a five minute bike ride away, and so are the picturesque Venice Canals.
Also near by are shopping centers, movie theaters, and the very popular Santa Monica Pier where you can take a ride on a Ferris wheel over the ocean and hit the trendy bars and cafes on the upscale Santa Monica Promenade. During the summer you can ride the waves on boogie boards (we will supply them).

We have many different kinds of guests, some want to chat and some just want to be left alone to work. Whatever type you are, you will be comfortable as our guests. Just read our reviews.
The best thing about our neighborhood is that it is safe to walk any time of night as it is a family neighbohood. We are close to the beach (10 blocks) and to Abbot Kinney which Esquire Magazine has called, "The hippest street in America." Also within walking distance are jazz clubs, great restaurants, and the famed Venice canals and boardwalk. The best thing to do is to hop on one of our bikes and ride on the bike path to Santa Monica for great shopping.
And if you like hiking, we are close to the Santa Monica Mountains which has incredible hiking trails. We have had guests that have just come for the hiking. Also, we are a 5 minute bike ride to the Marina Del Rey where you can rent a standup paddle board and go exploring the marina, either during the day (email hidden)is is my favorite thing to do and I just might join you!
We are located by three bus stops. But, if you want to explore Hollywood, we suggest renting a car as LA is not known for great public transportation.
Guests have access to:
Outdoor kitchen and grill
Full closet with hangers
Off Street Parking

The neighborhood is VERY SAFE. It is a family neighborhood with single family homes in an affluent neighborhood. Plenty of parking. It is also level, so great for bike riding. Close to the beach and fine restaurants. Also a great place for viewing remarkable Venice architecture.
You will have a dedicated parking spot in our driveway. There are also buses one block away. And O provide bikes.

Had an amazing time at Gina & Judy :) nice,fun and interactive people :) over all a very nice place to stay:)
This was my first Airbnb Experience and it was really a very good one. Gina and Judy were great hosts. The room is very comfortable and spacious. And the location is very close to restaurants, shops and to the beach. I would recommend this spot to everyone!
Gina and Judy were warm and friendly and made us feel comfortable. The location is very good and close to all the Venice activity. The accommodations were good and the patio area is really nice to relax in. Thank you for a nice stay!

We had a very enjoyable experience. Gina and Judy we're welcoming and informative about the area. The accommodations were as described, and were clean and comfortable. Great location in a quiet neighborhood close to restaurants, shopping and the beach. We would definitely stay here again.
Дом очень красивый и уютный. Наличие животных нисколько не мешало, животные очень спокойные, запахов в доме нет. Джина и Джуди очень гостеприимные. Мы чувствовали себя как дома. Удобная кровать, матрас и подушки, мы проваливались в глубокий сон сразу. Расположение в тихом месте, рядом с пляжем. Пляж Venice песок-пудра, ровное дно, но волны. Вода для нас была прохладной, но очень комфортной. правда иногда дул холодный ветер. Вечером становится холодно, необходимо переодеваться. Чистый воздух, нет пыли, деревья как будто только вымытые, очень легко и приятно гулять и дышится. Рядом прекрасный ресторан Super, лучше кухню мы пока не встретили, хотя много путешествовали. Немного странно было хозяйничать на чужой кухне, хозяева любезно предоставили весь холодильник в наше распоряжение, но мы быстро освоились:) Очень рекомендуем!
Everything went as we expected, we couldn't be happier! The house was beautiful and our room was very comfortable. Judy and Gina are very good and friendly hosts and they made us feel welcome. Using the bikes was a very nice feature. This was our first Airbnb experience, and it was a great one! We definitely recommend this!
Our hosts made us feel very welcome & arranged for a friend to let us in, and give us all the info we needed, as well as water & guide left for us in the beautiful bedroom with bathroom. They made sure we had parking for our rental car, and had bicycles & beach items we could use. The neighborhood was quiet, yet near major arteries so that we could drive to Venice beach in less than 10 minutes, and to downtown attractions in 30 min. The room was very comfortable, the courtyard restful & beautiful, and the kitchen was great to use for our breakfasts. Their animals are friendly and well-behaved, and made us feel even more at home. I was traveling with my 11 year old daughter, and she raved about how nice our hosts were and how much she loved staying there.
