About this listing
The Garden Room is a special treat in this 111 year old designer residence in the heart of Venice Beach. It is bright and sunny and has a view over the front garden out onto the street that leads to the beach that is just 100 meters away.

There are two bedrooms that can be rented separately. The Garden Room is one (lots of windows) and I have just redecorated another space to create the Bangkok Room which is also available for rentals. That room has a queen bed and will be featured in the last picture in my profile (black, red and gold). The first bedroom picture is the Garden Room which has a double bed.
You can certainly find less expensive places to stay on the Westside, but you will not find a better location or a more elegant setting. We are striving to be the best place to stay in Venice, not the cheapest. The price varies according to the season, day of the week, and the number of persons visiting. It is calculated by Airbnb.
"I look forward to the next time I travel to the States so I can revisit this wonderful little oasis." Elizabeth / Australia
The entire house except the two private bedrooms.
