Good location. Close to everything. Comfortable bed after a long drive was appreciated. Nice personal touch on Cold drinks in the fridge. Room cools down quickly when you open windows and let the breeze in....such a wonderful feeling coming from 100 degree weather. Close to everything and clear directions getting in and out.
Per mail bekamen wir eine genaue Liste für ein self-checking. Auf Anhieb haben wir alles gefunden und es hat alles super funktioniert.
Bei Fragen stand uns Ken zur Verfügung und er hat uns auch Wünsche erfüllt. Wir haben 2 Monate in diesem kleinen gemütlichen und mit Kunst dekorierten Häuschen gewohnt und uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Schön ist auch, dass man draussen sitzen kann und auch mal ein Fleisch auf den Grill werfen kann.
Es steht in einem ruhigen Viertel und mit Fahrrädern kann man den Strand in 5 Minuten erreichen. Auch ist die Abbot Kinney in Fussdistanz.
Everything was exactly as advertised. Quite. Close to Abbott Kinney. Lots of light and pretty of privacy. Bath & Shower was really nice. Decorated with great art and books. I will definitely return!
Kenneth made us feel most welcome and communicated well with us before, during and after our stay.
Although we did not meet him during our stay I consider him to be extremely organised and would recommend future guests choose to stay in his property.
kenneth's home was absolutely perfect for our cali weekend getaway! it was close to the action on abbot kinney blvd and very close to the beach. we soaked up everything we could in a few short days...and staying in a nice, clean and hip space totally added to our amazing trip. i would highly recommend kenneth's place for anyone wanting to soak up venice beach.
My second time at Ken's place, and another great stay. Clean, comfortable, quiet, and convenient to all the best of West LA. Though we've never met, Ken is a great host...always very responsive and welcoming. Really appreciate having access to a bike (the best way to get around Venice and Santa Monica), and the complimentary beers and water in the fridge are icing on the cake. Thanks again Ken...hope to return soon.
It's difficult not to gush writing this review - from the start Ken went above and beyond to accommodate us. A man of his word and generous to boot, Ken arranged a new portable baby bed for my 14 month old son, so we need not travel overseas with ours. Our son was not the only lucky one with his comfy new bed, the master bed is the most comfortable bed my husband and I can remember sleeping on. Which was perfect to ensure we had good rest after full days of touring on the bikes provided. The home itself is light, bright, fully equipped as per the description and beyond (as in, Ken has thought of everything) well planned and so delightfully quiet, secure and private. We were even able to enjoy an 'indoor/outdoor' living approach whilst we were there and our son loved playing with all the pebbles in the back yard. Location wise it is well appointed about half way in either direction between the beach and Wholefoods, with the Abbot Kinney strip very close by. Ken certainly stands for his 'superstar host' recommendation & was attentive and responsive to a few messages I sent during our time. The only reservation of our otherwise spectacular experience was that Ken was working away and we never got to shake the mans hand. Really that's it ;) We would happily return. Thanks mate !
About the Host, Kenneth
Though originally from NYC, after living in California for more than 20 years, I consider myself a native. As a sculptor and entrepreneur, I gravitated to Venice 14 years ago and fell in love with the community, the beach, surfing, mountain biking and the best weather in the world.
