The Space

Highlights: Free Carport PARKING available next to garage, negotiable check in and out times, just 7 minutes from LAX - bus line goes by, 2 bicycles for your use, Whole Foods Market and regular market a walk away, farmer's markets, beautiful walk streets lead to beach, comfortable bed in private room!

The house is found on a quiet walk (we have paths between homes here instead of streets) close to Abbott Kinney Boulevard and a 15-20 minute walk to historic Venice Beach! Santa Monica is down the street one way and Marina del Rey down the other. Hollywood is also close by. There is a grocery store and a Whole Foods market in walking distance.

We are about 7 miles from LAX off a main street.

You can use our carport in our driveway or park on a very close street if you prefer.

We provide a PRIVATE, cozy bedroom with a comfortable, queen-sized sofa bed closed off with shaded French doors and a private bath for you only. We have our own bed and bath located on the other side of the house. Your bedroom window looks out at the private yard with trees and foliage. We provide all the fresh towels, sheets and pillows you need as well as an egg crate mattress. We have an armoire for your things and the garage for anything large.

The COMMON AREAS are shared but we are not around much unless you are social types and enjoy company.

Please let us know your needs and we will do our best to make any arrangements for you. Check in and out times are negotiable. We want to try to accommodate everyone as best as we can.

Please give us at least 24 hours notice to ready the house for your stay. Sorry, but due to our work schedules we cannot accept reservations the same day you book - as in if it is April 20 we cannot book you for April 20th! We need a few days advanced notice.

The modern and cozy house is a converted bungalow where rooms and skylights have been added. Friends who have stayed report an excellent night's rest and good feng shui.

We have a VERY mellow dog.

Los Angeles isn't well known for public transportation but we have a bus line that runs close by. You can also walk or bike to so many places you may not need public transport.

Amenities include: A beach cruiser and a hybrid bicycle, Wifi, surf boards.

PARKING: in our car port and street parking.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Amy and Jeff were absolutely fantastic hosts, and their home was gorgeous (just as beautiful as the photos!). They were warm, welcoming, and even invited us to join them for wine and cheese on the patio one night. They live in the most adorable neighborhood in Venice, with little garden alleyways to explore, and lots of great restaurants and shops nearby. I can't wait to come back and stay here again!

  • Amy and Jeff were fantastic hosts. Great communication the whole way through, and very friendly and accommodating. It was my birthday weekend, and they even left a thoughtful birthday card for me upon my arrival. Made sure my stay was comfortable and easy. Highly recommended.

  • It was great to stay with Amy & Jeff. Would definitively recommend them. Unfortunately, we didn't have that much time to chat with them as we where all day long out.

  • Amy and Jeff's place had the three C's. Clean, comfortable (especially the bed) and Canon! (Their new pup who is adorable and incredibly well-behaved) The house was beautiful, clean, spacious and so quiet at night. The area is beautiful too and only walking distance to Abbot Kinney (great shopping/eating/drinking) and Venice beach. The bikes were an added bonus and made getting around really easy. Would definitely recommend a bike ride down to Santa Monica along the beach. Amy and Jeff were fantastic hosts and gave us some great advice about what to see and where to eat. Would not hesitate to stay at their place again. Thanks for a great time Amy and Jeff.

  • Jeff and Amy were wonderful hosts! We absolutely loved the area and they couldn't have been more accommodating. Highlights were borrowing their bikes to cruise around Venice, wandering the network of walkways from their house to Abbott Kinney, and lounging in their hammock in the sunshine.

  • Really informative welcoming from Jeff and had comfortable stay at their house. If you have time you can use their guest bikes and ride to the beach.Their home was quite nice and clean and the area was also worth to stay in Los Angeles.

  • What a sweet spot. Super cozy house in a great location, I was delighted by the little pathways through the neighborhood, great for walking places. Amy and Jeff were super helpful and welcoming and their new dog Conan is definitely a sweetheart. It felt like we had plenty of privacy. When we arrived they had candles burning in our room, a pitcher or water by the bed and the whole place just felt really special. We had a lovely stay.
