The Space

Charming Artsy Cozy Bohemian Beach Bungalow
{{{ONE}}} block to world famous Venice Beach Boardwalk at the Ocean....
full of artists, performers. the new venice zipline, the skate park, muscle beach, the ocean and the best sunsets.

It is walking distance to many restaurants, bars, shops, and art galleries along boardwalk, Main Street and Abbott Kinney Street.

There is a shared courtyard with a small porch, making it a little private oasis. The bedroom is turned into my art studio/creative space. There is the sweetest kitty named Foxy who lives at bungalow... she is good company.

There is no television... but the beach is oh so close.... and there is wifi.
There is not a designated parking spot... but plenty of street parking.

I can leave a beach cruiser bike and lock for extra small cost.

It is also right across the street from the bus-stop... and it is a 5 minute bus ride to Santa Monica and the outdoor shopping mall Promenade.

Hollywood and Downtown are only 20 minutes away.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Our stay at Michaela's beach bungalow was absolutely perfect. She was flexible when our arrival time got pushed, rapidly responsive when we had a question and during the planning process, and it was clear that she really cares about making sure her guests are comfortable and taken care of.

    The bungalow itself is a gem. She's an artist and you can tell! From her awesome book collection to the portraits hanging on the walls, the bungalow is a perfect place to submerge yourself into relaxation. As if that's not enough, you are 3 houses away from the beach!

    Foxy the cat was the perfect roommate, too. Give her some food in the morning, let her hang outside all day, and she might just snuggle up to you during the night.

    Overall, we loved our first stay at Michaela's home and hope to be back next summer!

  • My stay was very comfortable and so convenient. The kitty was great and all around my stay felt very homy. The booking and gaining access was seamless and would stay again if I came back.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in Michaela's beach bungalow. She was readily contactable and although she was unable to meet us on our arrival, she managed to arrange for her friend to greet us. While small with few frills, it's rustic, comfortable and most importantly conveniently located just right off the boardwalk and sandy beaches of Venice. It's also just a short walk from Abbot Kinney Boulevard, the Venice Canals and the Pier. We had no issues with noise over the weekend, but street parking was rather challenging. We resorted to settle for steeply priced private parking nearby. We were advised to find parking further way from the main beach area, but felt it was too much of a hassle. I would absolutely recommend this place for those looking for a simple place to crash after exploring this side of LA.

  • This place was awesome. It is a 2 minute walk to the beach. It is a great little bungalow. Plenty of space, and everthing we needed. It is close to pacific ave, so at times it was a little loud, but it was fine for us. We mainly enjoyed the quick access to the beach, and little miss foxy. What a wonderful kitty! Michaela was great, and we would definitely stay there again!

  • We enjoy our time at Michaela's home! This is our second time here. Foxy is a great little cat, and we enjoy her being there as well. Michaela is a great hostess, and we will be back again! Don't hesitate to say yes to this beach bungalow!

  • Michaela's bungalow is a great property. Location is very close to the beach and boardwalk. Parking can be a bit challenging, but it is Venice Beach, so it's to be expected. Michaela had everything ready prior to my arrival and was very responsive to my inquiries while staying at the property. Foxy the cat is a wonderful roommate. Would definitely stay here again.
