Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We stayed at Marcia and Chris for almost 3 weeks and had the best time ever.
    The apartment has really good vibes. It is also large, stylish and comfortable. On the top of that it is "baby proof" which was very convenient since we came with our 11 months son. They had installed gates next to the staircase, a high chair, a changing mat, special eating baby ustensiles such as plates and spoons..They even was wonderful organic food in the fridge left for us.
    Definitely a 5 stars. We will be back !!

  • I don't think I can write a good enough review to do justice to the Gills awesome apartment. They are incredible hosts and made sure that we had everything we needed and more. Super conveniently located, beautifully decorated, and very clean, spacious, and comfy. It was like staying in a 5 star hotel, except better. We would absolutely stay again and would highly recommend to anyone visiting LA. A terrific experience.

  • This is a really wonderful place to stay in Venice. Incredibly clean and comfortable. Best of all, Marcia and Chris are the most gracious hosts I have ever come across. I travel with a small crew for business very frequently and we always prefer these home/condo setups rather than hotels, so I've seen the good and bad of these arrangements. This was certainly at the very top of my list and I'll surely be returning the next time I'm in Los Angeles. The rooms and furnishing are all top notch and the rooftop deck is the best place to end a day and watch the sun go down. Very highly recommended!

  • AMAZING HOME! AMAZING PEOPLE! Was traveling for work with a photo crew and loved it. This was my first time having the photos on the site exactly match the home - no wide angle lens making a room feel huge that was actually a shoe box. Great location! Perfect walking distance to the market and to the beach/restaurants. Marcia was so accommodating and friendly! Staying at their house was so relaxing and felt like coming home. Will definitely come back next time I am in LA. A++, great renters, would rent from again!

  • Marcia and Chris are perfect hosts, Chris met us when we arrived and showed us round the condo which was perfect for our family. We used the roof terrace and BBQ and made full use of the projector and instruments which was great. It felt like a home from home, Wholefooandi is close by and the beach a 10-15 minute walk, plenty of places to eat along the way.
    We loved our stay here and were made to feel very welcome, thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

  • During the past week our family had the best possible time in Venice, CA.

    A huge part of this was caused by the wonderful accommodation.

    The actual house is even nicer than the pictures here.

    The location is perfect. If you like Venice beach then this is the ideal point to be.

    The hosts are amazing. It is wonderful how they made our stay so pleasant.

    I don't expect to ever have an AIrBNB experience that is as good as this one was. That would be cruel to the other hosts and places, and ruin future experiences.

    That's probably the only word of caution: Read all the reviews - as awesome as they sound: they are true. Then forget about them: Book and expect a 'normal' stay that is in line with the price. When you arrive you will be amazed. We were ….

  • Such an awesome house. We stayed 4 days and enjoyed everything. The house is full of harmony, modern and warm. It is very well equiped (the kitchen, the rooms and bathrooms with all you might need provided). Marcia is very cheerful.
    We really love Rose av. Many restaurants, very trendy stores just next the house, we would have spent more time if we could.
    We just recommend to stay.

  • My daughter's wedding was in Santa Monica and we needed a place for our family to stay. The apartment worked perfect , very clean, with all the practical utensils in the kitchen, the rooms were very comfortable , the living room is beautiful ,very modern, comfortable, they have a desk for working , a nice big dinning table, and a great roof top
    The location is incredible, walking distance to Whole Foods,the ocean and many good restaurants.
    The attentions that Maria and Chris had were amazing , fresh flowers , food in the refrigerator, and a bottle of fine Champagne at the door after the wedding!
    We do recommend the place with 5 stars and we hope to stay there again the next time we visit L.A.

    June 2013
  • Wow! It was a great time at Venice and at Marcia&Chris place! First off, after a long trip, we were very well received and welcomed by the hosts with lots of (thoughtful) goodies in the fridge. The house is beautiful and very confortable. It has great amenities and it was very well maintained. We loved to rock on with the instruments, grill some barbecue and sit around the on the nice living room setting. Only downside was that our vacation was too short!
    I won't think twice when thinking of a place to stay when going to LA area.

  • Our stay in this Venice flat was amazing

    The flat was very well located between Venice and Dante Monica beaches! It is only a 10 minutes walk!
    There are lots of good restaurants and bars in the street and just 2 minutes walk from the flat there is a huge supermarket!

    The roof top terrace was the best, we had breakfast there in the morning!!! Great!!!!
    The kitchen is fully equipped and our hosts left plenty of bottle of water and chocolate for us!
    There are 2 large bedroom and one smaller...
    The living room is also very spacious with a video projector but there is no DVD player or tv...
    Everything was very clean and tidy!
    I will definitely recommend this place... Especially if you are with friends!
    We would stay there again!
