Guest Access

Guests have access to the living room-guest sleeping area, front patio, kitchen & bathroom 24 hours a day. You have a key so you can come and go as you please.

Interaction with Guests

I respect my guests need for privacy, so the living room (the guest sleeping area) is PRIVATE BY NIGHT. However I live here--my bedroom is located towards the back of the apartment, so if you need anything just let me know!

The Neighborhood

Venice is very colorful--there is much to see and do within a two mile distance. The weather is warm, so shorts and T-shirts are best --however bring a sweater (jumper) or a light a light jacket and either slacks or a long dress or skirt for night.

Getting around

Buses, shuttles, and taxis are available Taxi to LAX is around $30. Shuttle is $18-22. Bus is $2. LYFT and UBER is also available - better than a taxi-but you must first download the app.

RENTING A CAR If you do rent a car wait until you arrive at my place. It will be less expensive than renting at the airport!

PARKING
There is FREE parking on the SIDE STREETS. Both PRIVATE (more expensive + overnight)) and CITY parking lots are available (close at midnight).
CITY LOTS: Venice Boulevard, Washington Boulevard, Rose Avenue- Parking Fees:Winter $4.00 to $9.00; Summer $6.00 to $17.50
Strongly suggest you read about parking at Venice (website hidden)
* * *
NEVER park in a RED, GREEN, or YELLOW zone, or next to a FIRE HYDRANT. Also, DO NOT park on PACIFIC Ave or on MAIN STREET- too many restrictions!

Please READ the street signs BEFORE parking to AVOID getting a ticket--for example: DON'T PARK on the street cleaning days! Again, READ THE SIGNS!!

To avoid traffic PLAN YOUR TRIPS CAREFULLY!, don't travel during rush hour, which is early morning and late afternoon (from 4:30 pm to early evening). Or stay on the West Side--plenty to see right here.

Do online research before you arrive as Los Angeles is HUGE! Study maps to find the places you want to see and the best ways to travel there.

Other Things to Note

There is a lot of night life--comedy, live music, plays + musicians play music on the Venice Boardwalk and the Santa Monica Pier during the day and on the 3rd Street Promenade (day and night).

  • Wendy, thank you so much for your hospitality. I had an amazing time. Location was superb, the views spectacular. Could not have asked for a better place to stay. I feel like I made a wonderful new friend. I highly recommend staying at Wendy's. A wonderful woman, very helpful, kind and great company. I had an absolute blast and cried when it was time to leave. You will definitely see me again lovely lady. Thank you so much for everything. So close to everything, loved the walks to Santa Monica, the people watching and all the activities in Venice Beach. 100% Satisfied :)

  • We loved Wendy's apartment, it really got the best location right in middle of Venice beach, we enjoyed it very much, Wendy is just a amazing host and person, we were really happy to meet her.

  • Wendy is the perfect host. Very accommodating, generous, honest, great conversationalist, kind and really expresses her interest in making sure her guests are comfortable. Waking up beachfront was so lovely. Our stay with Wendy is memorable. We shall return.

  • Wendy was a great host. Originally I was down in LA for a wedding and I just wanted to relax and just be steps away from the beach. Unfortunately my plans changed while I was there and ended up meeting up with old friends near DTLA and got stuck helping out with some wedding details. But for the short time I was there Wendy treated me very well offered me coffee and just had a good conversation. The location was literally one step from the boardwalk. You can hear the tourist and locals walk by and hear the ocean break.

  • Perfect location, right on the boardwalk and staying with Wendy was an amazing part of the experience. She's great to chat with and tons of fun. You really are in the living room so it's best if you're a morning person and don't mind not having a room during the day (I was taking sailing classes from 9-5pm so it was perfect). Great place to experience venice beach up close and personal.

    Response from Wendy:

    Yes, it is true, the living room is SHARED by day...but many times I am not home, so often guests can have the apartment to themselves.

  • Wendy is so nice to me. The location was amazing very in front of ocean! The room is do comfortable and very fun talking with her. This trip is my first airbnb, and very happy to stay at Wendy's place.

    June 2014
  • Wendy was a fantastic host... I had the best time hanging out on the beach, meeting people and relaxing at Wendy's... Perfect place to stay if you are wanting the beach/venice experience. highly recommended!

    June 2014
  • Fantastic location. Fantastic Host. Fantastic experience...thankyou for making our short stay so memorable....

    June 2014
  • Me and my girlfriend were late night at Venice without any answer of airbnb. So just before midnight we receive a message of Wendy! She received us late and make a very comfortable bed at her living room. It was the best surprise we had, the place is at a perfect location, with ocean view and she was the best host we could imagine, very helpful, respectfully and really nice.

    We really miss you and hope to see you again :)

    Tip:her breakfast was better than all hotels that we stay.

  • Staying @ Wendy's small but cosy appartement was amazing. We felt like being home. The bohemian atmosphere of Venice-Beach comes to life right in front of you. Partly because Wendy gives you a lot of inns and outs of Venice. Wendy is always there for you whenever you need something. She is very generous and kind (and makes great breakfast)
    We would definitely stay here again.

    Wil je het echte leven op Venice Beach ervaren? We hebben 3 dagen bij Wendy doorgebracht en het was fantastisch. Een klein appartement maar een unieke uitvalsbasis voor de omgeving. Laat downtown LA naast je liggen en laat je adviseren door Wendy om de directe omgeving te verkennen.
