Our glorious little slice of heaven is a quintessential Venice Beach Cottage, built in 1907 and lovingly restored by “Restoration Bliss” a century later. Located on a quiet alley in the heart of hipster Venice, we are only a minute’s walk from the funky Venice Boardwalk and famous Muscle Beach, where the sand, ocean and excellent breakwater surfbreak are right there ready for you to unwind and do your thing. The shops and restaurants of Abbot Kinney & Rose Avenue are around the corner, as are the Venice Canals and the Pier. Santa Monica’s Main Street, Promenade, Pier & Ocean Boulevard are all just a short $5 Uber ride away.
Our cottage is intimate and inviting, light and bright, peaceful and quiet, and delightfully well appointed. It can accommodate a couple or parents with a small child. We’ve decorated it in what we like to think of as a “classy beach style,” with a comfy overstuffed sofa and chair, petite regency dining table, and original built in fold down desk. The luxurious queen bed is ridiculously comfortable, and the original claw foot tub perfect for a candlelight soak (we provide the candles!). We also provide an air mattress, sheets and blanket for extra guest. (email hidden) in the galley kitchen with marble counters, original turn of the century cabinets and all the amenities you would want and expect. Brand new stainless steel kitchen appliance. The cottage has full wi-fi connectivity, and DirecTV. There’s a small outdoor deck/patio, with a couple of Adirondack chairs perfect for morning coffee and reading the paper. We provide two soft-top surfboards & boogie boards to help entice you into the ocean at the end of the alley (it’s a really great beginners surf break). The cottage has its own private parking space.

Sewit and her husband were wonderful hosts. The cottage is perfect for a couple who wants to explore Venice and Santa Monica by foot, bikes or cars. The neighborhood is quiet yet centrally located, right on the beach. Many great eateries around the corner. My girlfriend and I rented bikes for the week & had a blast. There was first a water heater issue but Sewit and her family addressed the issue immediately, let us use their gorgeous bathroom in the main house while we waited for the heater to be fixed. They checked in with us throughout the stay with such grace and care. We could not have asked for a better experience.
I had such an incredible stay at the Vintage Venice Beach Cottage! It was right in the heart of venice, close to all the action yet still quite and peaceful.
Sewit and was so attentive when a small problem arose they fixed the issue promptly.
I would most definitely stay here again!!
All the best,
We absolutely loved the cottage. This was our 1st experience with using a private rental property in the United States and Sewit has certainly set the bar high. The home is beautifully maintained and furnished. The cleanliness was exceptional. The location is in a very built up area in Venice Beach however it was surprisingly quiet. A short walk to the beach and local shops - perfect for a short stay. Our host Sewit greeted us on arrival and was nice and welcoming.
I love this cozy cottage! Sewit was lovely and so helpful. The cottage is private and well appointed - beachy light decor, super soft sheets and towels w a nice kitchen and bathroom. The home had wifi, cable and a parking space - so rare in this area! Perfect for 1-2 people. Be sure to relax on the private patio or walk to the taco place down the street. And of course enjoy the beach!!
We stayed at Sewit's place for 7 nights and had a great time. The apartment was nice and clean, and in a great location near the beach. The parking space was also very convenient. Sewit was a nice host and we highly recommend staying at her place.
Sewit's cottage was perfect for our weekend getaway to Venice Beach. Mark was very responsive, especially when we accidentally locked ourselves out. It is footsteps from Venice Beach and the free parking spot is awesome, especially for out of town guests.
About the Host, Sewit
My husband and I live in Venice with our children. Love to travel, entertain and be surrounded by friends and family. We'd love to host and share our guest house with people from all over the world. Our guest house is completely separate from the main house.
