The Space

GREAT location and perhaps biggest garden in Venice !!

Pictures are new and up to date as of December.

Steps to the beach (8 minutes walking), around the corner from Abbott Kinney's shops, hip restaurants bars and entertainment. Named coolest block in the USA!

Fruit trees, vegetable garden, large dome located at one end of yard with couches and rugs great for yoga, meditation, or for meetings and a wonderful play area for the kids and adults!
At night sometimes, you can hear the waves and the drum circle in the weekends coming from the beach.

The whole inside of the house has been repainted, new beddings, curtains, amenities and loads of tender loving care has been given to the house, dome and garden!
The house; a 20's British style cottage with lots of character, colorful, hard wood floors. Newly furnished with designer pieces and contemporary art.
2 bedrooms, 1 bath house on quiet street.
Rooms are spacious with queen size beds in both bedrooms, additional queen bed in cosy wood backyard shack (also in photos), great for afternoon naps or for more guests and large couch in living room. Sleeps more with air mattress available if desired. WIFI, stereo and more.

The yard/garden is enclosed and is as important as the home. Enjoy the outdoor pizza oven a fire pit and BBQ outside
Indoor fire place.
Bikes, boogie board, surfboard (upon request) and skateboards, beach chairs, all you need for a great vacation is here.
Hammock, kids friendly with children painting area and toys.

The house next door is being remodeled, almost finished, now they are doing the finishing touches, some minor noise. It has not been bad at all, have had no complaints from guests.

Great home for families visiting with kids, bring your dog, great to relax in after a day of touring or being on the beach.. very close to Getty, UCLA and Route 1, (Pacific Coast Highway) for drive to Malibu, Santa Barbara. Just 35 minutes from Disneyland, 45 minutes to Legoland, museums, close to the 10 and 90 fwy's. Public transportation two blocks away. etc. very safe, quiet neighborhood.
Free, convenient street parking.

Guest Access

The whole house, garden, dome and shack. Total privacy.

As of May, I will be occasionally using the rear garage as my studio. Started a cobbler project, making ad re-crafting vintage boots and shoes. . The garage is at the other end of the huge garden and completely independent from the main house with a separate entrance. I will give 100% total privacy to the guests and there is a high fence that separates it from the garden. I will access it from the separate gate in the back of garage. Again, you will have total privacy.

Interaction with Guests

I like to be there when guests arrive at the house, to greet them and show them around a bit. Think its a great way to welcome guests and make them feel at home.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood, is mostly made of middle/upper class families.
Venice has been changing a lot, many new companies moving in, prices increasing and new developments, but its charm has not changed very much.

Getting around

There is public transportation, but the best way to get around in venice is walking, bicycle or skate!

Other Things to Note

I avoid dining at the beach, as its greasy food, over priced and mostly for tourists.
Abbott Kinney and Rose Ave have plenty of good places to dine.

  • Our host was above and beyond responsive, warm and gracious. The property is how we expected. We wanted a space with a yard for our kids. The yard was definitely the highlight. An awesome space for kids and adults to enjoy together.

  • Nicolas' house was Venice's own slice of heaven! It's a shame we never got to meet him in person, but he was extremely accommodating to our every need via text. The laid back vibe of Venice is epitomized in this house. It's a perfect size with tons of space to play outside. The kids loved the yurt and so did we. We made pizzas, biked around Venice, enjoyed the beach, and most of all felt like locals. The location is literally steps from Abbot Kinney and a quick jaunt to the beach. If you want to unleash your creativity, be inspired, and experience the soul of Venice then this is the house for you! Thanks again Nicolas! We will be back!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Nicolas's unique Venice house, just a short walk to the beach. Its huge backyard is fantastic for wiling away a sunny LA afternoon. The place is full of character and personality - I highly recommend it for anyone looking for an authentic slice of Venice life!

  • I rented this house for my birthday weekend a few weeks back with some friends and we had the best time spending our afternoons/evenings in the backyard. If you're looking for more than just a house to stay in for your travels then I would recommend staying here because you can't find many places by the beach with a big backyard! The house is a few blocks from the main street (Abbot Kinney) so you can walk to a variety of restaurants, bars, shops and the beach is about half a mile away. Overall our stay went very well.. the house was clean but the kitchen is a bit small so you need to spend more time prepping/organizing meals to work efficiently in the space. We spent most of our time outside enjoying the privacy from the neighbors and it was mostly quite along the street/alley way.

  • Nic has a fantastic house, the location is incredible, just off Abbot Kinney which is a great street for shopping, restaurants and food trucks. The house was perfect for our family of four (two kids under 8) and they spent their days roaming around the huge garden and dome tent. We loved our evenings in the garden around the firepit too. Although we didn't meet Nic in person but his communication has been fantastic and I have thoroughly enjoyed our Airbnb experience. I would absolutely recommend staying here for an incredible Venice experience.

  • Really enjoyed our stay here. Lovely chilled out house. The location is perfect for exploring Venice by foot and the garden and yurt are awesome. Very relaxing. Wish we had spent more time there. Maybe one day.
    Also Nicolas is a cool guy!

    Cheers.

  • Nicholas was a great host, his place is in a fantastic location, very clean and comfortable. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

  • Nicolas and his home were very accommodating. My friends and I had an amazing stay. Nicolas was very prompt and thoughtful in his responses and recommendations for local restaurants and amenities. He even stopped by on a friday evening to give us a personal tutorial on how to best use his outdoor wood fired pizza oven. He made us all feel very welcome and we had a great visit. I'd highly recommend Nicolas' house to anyone wanting to visit Venice Beach. The house was just a block away from the very Chic Abbot Kinney Blvd, and just a few blocks from the beach and the boardwalk. It was overall a great experience.
