Interaction with Guests
The Cabana Room is separate from main house so guests have all the privacy they need, however, we do live in the front house so you will occasionally see us walking across the patio. We love to get to know our guests and give them any information the need.
Venice is a wonderfully livelyand eclectic community with countless restaurants, bars, and small, boutique store (not to mention Starbucks and Coffee Bean) in walking or biking distance. The Venice Boardwalk is the 2nd biggest tourist attraction in Southern California. With its collection of local artists, street vendors and street performers it is always entertaining. You can also stroll along the beach, swim or lay on the sand and enjoy the amazing sunsets! If you are visiting Los Angeles coming to Venice Beach and seeing the Boardwalk is a MUST! Staying on Venice Beach is even better!!

My friend and I had a great time in Venice Beach - Megan's cabana room is the perfect size for one or two people! It is literally steps away from the beach, but also very quiet and tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the Venice Boardwalk. We only saw Megan when we checked in, but she was very helpful and provided us with everything we needed. The bikes were a great addition and we took full advantage of them (a definite MUST if you are staying in Venice!). Would definitely recommend staying here if you want a comfy private accommodation with a separate entrance. Also very close to Santa Monica and great restaurants and bars.
Megan was super welcoming and awesome! The location was perfect, and the room was great! She thought of everything. We only met her for the check in then were on our way since we were on our vacation/honeymoon. Having bikes was a super plus! All of this definitely made up for the parking that was a couple blocks away on the street. All in all, I would recommend to anyone wanting to have a lovely stay at the beach!
Very friendly and helpful hosts, helped us with finding a parking spot. The place is very nice, the location is awesome, 3-5 minutes walk to the beach!
A great little place, very close to the beach! Megan was very helpful and welcoming. Loved the house manual!
Our stay at Megan's cabana was absolutely wonderful! She was such a great hostess and provided us with what we needed. Her family was just as kind to us and they were all able to let us know great places in the area to eat, drink, etc. It was our first time in Venice and we are definitely hoping to visit again (: thanks for the hospitality Megan!
We had a fantastic time staying at the Cabana. Megan is a great host and catered for our every need. She even helped me find a free parking space when we arrived. Couldn't get a better location in Venice! Highly recommended.
This was a perfect size and location for two! The hospitality was excellent and we definitely recommend this spot for anyone traveling through or planning on spending an extended amount of time in the Santa Monica area.
I have 5 beautiful daughters and 1 handsome son (all grown-up)! I also have 3 grandsons. I have been married for 29 years to my wonderful husband, Scott (That's the handsome man in the picture). We are both teachers. We have lived in the big house on the property for 30 years. We love living on Venice Beach. We spend a lot of time biking for exercise or to the many local Happy Hours. We and are renting out or cabana room with private access so other people can experience the Venice Beach we know and love. We would enjoy showing you how to enjoy Venice like a true local!
