This is one of my favorite place on earth.
The kitchen area has a microwave, fridge, and electric range. Perfect for breakfast and easy dining!
Walk to Venice Beach where you can stroll the boardwalk, have some fun sunbathing and surfing in the Pacific Ocean, or bike along the beach. (We provide the bikes!) The Venice Canals are right around the corner for a romantic and beautiful experience. Abbot Kinney Blvd is the hottest street in Los Angeles where you can find great food and shopping.

Thank you Laurence
I travelled to LA with my boyfriend, this cozy apartment made our trip completed. Check in process was very easy, you only need to remember the code. We rent a Mini Cooper, and it parked perfectly in the parking spot, any larger vehicle might found difficulty to access in the alley. Laurence was very nice host, she left me a message with candies in the desk and that warmed my heart. Every little thing in this apartment made you feel like home. The bicycles were placed in the storage room, we rode bikes to the beaches for only 5 minutes. We really had a great time and we would definitely stay here again.
The listing was accurate: small but charming one-room unit with bathroom, and "kitchen" area (microwave, small fridge, counter, coffee maker,etc...no stove or oven which was fine for us!) We got the blow-up mattress as specially requested- thank you! Do note: if you are a light sleeper or prefer quiet, please be aware that the walls are very thin!! We could hear couples doing what couples do both next door and above us, as well as a ukulele at 7am. We emailed Lawrence that we had arrived two hours early, wondering if we go enter our rental early, but never heard back from her.
This place is charming and located beautifully within Venice.Easy walk or bike ride to the beach, canals and town! My boyfriend and I were greeted with a handwritten card(loved it!), manual, snacks and a great guide to attractions in Venice!The place is super comfy and quiet. Laurence was always very available and responsive if we had any questions.I hope we have a chance to stay here again but will definitely be recommending our friends and family to stay here!
What an amazing find. This small space is used to the max and really nicely decorates. I especially loved the attention to detail. We had a lovely personalised note welcoming us, nuts for snacks, coffee, milk and water. I even found a sowing kit and a plug adaptor. Lawrence thought of everything. The towels were the softest thing ever and we even had umbrelas!
It is close to Venice beach, maybe 15min leisurely walk and set in the amazing Venice canals. I would suggest to whoever is visiting LA to rent a car. Makes life easier.
I would not hesitate to recommend this to all my friends and family. Thanks again Lawrence for everything.
The host made us feel very welcome, being prompt with communications prior and even being in touch by phone when needed. The welcome kit and area guide were very nice and helpful. Listing was very well decorated and clean. Location and parking spot were great, as were beach bag, towels and bikes (helmets and locks included). Wonderful way to see Venice--boardwalk, beach and canals --and great jumping off point for L.A. stay.
The apartment was exactly as the pictures described - very convenient parking space, ideal location. Laurence left a gift basket along w really thoughtful toiletries (makeup remover wipes, q tips, etc) and a guest book w great suggestions. Would love to book again!
