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.
THE GARDEN ROOM
"One of the best places on AirBnB!" Oliver / NYC
Private bedroom in a 1903 designer decorated Victorian beach cottage. Less than a block from the famed Venice Beach Boardwalk, one block from the Main Street restaurants and shopping, four blocks to Abbott Kinney Boulevard, the hottest shopping and dining destination on the west side. In the heart of Silicon Beach, one block from famed Yoga studios. There are restaurants, bars and stores to suit all tastes within walking distance. "Location, location, location! It was perfectly located" Sarah / Washington
You have full use of the house: bedroom, living room, microwave and refrigerator (in kitchen), two baths, dining room, TV loft with 55 inch flat screen. Bathrooms both have tubs and showers, one has a large jacuzzi.
This is one of the most famous homes in Venice, once owned by Abbot Kinney. Two people live in the house. "Wonderful house, awesome and charming:)" Alex / Moscow.
"Could not recommend it more highly" Rodney, New South Wales. "i'll always choose this place! Jana / Berlin
20 Minutes to LAX. On major bus lines. Walking distance to Santa Monica Promenade, Santa Monica Place, and the Santa Monica Pier. Local bus lines within a block. Abbot Kinney Boulevard is four blocks away.
"The location in the heart of Venice Beach is GREAT" Cathy / Paris
You can see the Pacific Ocean from the front porch. Stroll down less than a block to enjoy the wild scene on the Venice Boardwalk. One block east is the chic Santa Monica Main Street. More than 25 restaurants in all price ranges are within walking distance. Organic market, laundry, cleaner, wine shops, extensive Metro bus system within one block.
Coffee & continental breakfast served in the dining room in morning. "Sublime maison de caractère à deux pas de la plage dans Venice" Nicolas / Toulouse
Your host is a director and designer for opera, theater, and television and has lived in this house in Venice for more than 25 years and will be happy to advise you on local sites, scenes, food, shopping, and entertainment.
The two cats, Bella and Slim look forward to your visit! "And we LOVED the cats" Grace / San Jose
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.
Interaction with Guests
If I am home I am happy to answer guest's questions and give them advice on restaurants and sights to see in LA.
Venice is an extremely colorful beachside neighborhood. The boardwalk is full of sights, sounds, and characters. The beach is broad, clean and beautiful. There are many shops and restaurants within walking distance.

The check in instructions were very complete and the house was great.
The owner could not have been more helpful
E.J. was absolutely amazing host . We had a little situation and arrived home at 1 am which we welcomed with great hospitality. Definitely will go back and beach was amazing :)
This place is truly a home away from home. Esquire is an amazing host and really understands what a guest needs/wants and provides that and more. He makes the guest feel very welcome and well taken care of. The house is comfortable and there is breakfast available every morning. There is also an awesome coffee/espresso maker. The bed/bedroom was very comfortable. The location is perfect. Right in the heart of Venice Beach, near the boardwalk, but away from the loud bars that are closer to the Winward circle area. I will definitely come back here and recommend this guesthouse to as many people as I can.
Great space, Esquire was a great host and showed me the around the whole space. The house is ideally located right by the beach and I would highly recommend making this a base for an LA adventure!
First, one negative point. I expected the room to face to the back of the house. In reality it's facing the street and the building is almost at the corner to Pacific Ave, which means that you will hear the traffic. Be aware of it.
(E.J. rents another room that I would expect to be quiter. Maybe you can find it on AirBnB)
Other than that everything was perfect!
The house is super beautiful, and every part of it is nicely decorated.
E.J. provides you with all information needed to have a great time. We went to one of the restaurants he recommended and had a great time.
I also visited the Getty Museum thanks to his recommendation and it was a truly fantastic experience!
Bella (the cat) and I also got along great.
I definitely recommend this wonderful place.
Spent awesome days over new yrs at Venice, L.A.! Found unique memories shared throughout the house w/ posters, paintings, artifacts. Felt the over 100 yrs experiences the house is telling. Spacious rooms (incl. bath) and relaxed and pleasant way being hosted. location is right in middle at venice to explore within walking distance.
