The space

Everyone really enjoys my home. Please see the reviews. I must start by saying this is not the place to come and party. My neighbors are very close and enjoy our quiet neighborhood. They get up early for work and expect to be able to get a good nights sleep. Please look for another place to stay if you are a group looking for a party location.

I am afraid to say that I have a new restriction and that is no infants or young children. Recents complaints from one neighbor has forced me to add this restriction. I apologize for this.

OK, now that this is out of the way - - -

My home is perfectly located in a quiet friendly neighborhood near everything you may want. Fully equiped with wi-fi, 5 TVs, 3 DVD players, stereo, Cable, secluded Jacuzzi area, 4 great outdoor spaces, piano, common garage space, stainless steel appliances, pots, pans, dinner ware, glasses, Weber Grill, nice front load washer and dryer, 2 bicycles, 3 boggie boards, 2 beach chairs, beach towels. luggage scale, outdoor shower, and more.

Beds are comfortable and my place is decorated nicely while not stuffy.

3 Bedrooms (feather pillows) and two full baths. 1 Cal King, 1 Queen and one Pull out Jennifer convertible sofa bed in third bedroom.

Abbot Kinney Blvd is a the end of the street with great shops, restaurants and bars a simple walk. Marina Del Rey adjacent. Bus stops are a short walk. The wonderful Venice Canals and World Famous Venice Beach are a 5 minute car ride, 10 minute bike ride or 15 minute walk away.

I have wonderful quiet considerate neighbors. I feel very fortunate to be surrounded by these people.

One carpeted car space will be open in the garage for storage of your luggage. It can also be used for light workouts as I have it equiped with weights, a pull up bar, stretch cords and push up bars. This is a also a good place to leave the bikes and beach chairs, after a ride to the beach. There is a work bench that you can use as well. This space is considered shared as it is used by the cleaning person, Tammy (see below) and possibly myself if I am in town and need to access tools or my car.

There is room for one vehicle to be parked on the property next to the garage as well as plenty of room on the street right in front of the house.

My home has an apartment in the back over the garage where my good friend Tammy lives with her little white dog, Leroy. Tammy is a sweetheart but you probably won't see or hear her much as she enters and exits from the back of the property and your living space is in the front. Leroy has the run of the property. Leroy is in some of the photos. He is an hypoalergenic Havanese breed. If you don't like dogs you would want to pick another home as Leroy likes people and will want to visit with you. You have not responsibitly for him. Just keep the gates closed so he doesn't sneak away. He's quite sly.

I've been renting my home via VRBO for quite a while now and people love it. Please check out the reviews. Hope to hear from you soon. Good day!!!

Guest access

Full use of everything in the house, all the surrounding patios, their our private jacuzzi, the garage (shared) and their designated parking space.

Interaction with guests

Phone calls, texts, email, in person if I happen to be in town.

The neighborhood

Quiet neighborhood just minutes away from all that Venice has to offer. Walk, bike, drive, taxi, Uber.

Getting around

Metro buses are a short walk and they can take you to the LA Metro rail system. I love using the very accessible Uber and Lyft service. Freeways are close but not too close.

Other things to note

I have recent problems with guests bringing dogs so I have decided to discontinue allowing dogs. I hate to have to do this as I love dogs and dog owners.

House Rules
Check in is anytime after 3PM
Check out by 11AM

Just treat my home as you would your own. Be respectful of my home and wonderful neighbors. They could end up being some of your new Venice Friends.

My home has an apartment over the garage where my good friend and long time tenant lives with her little white fluffy dog Leroy (14lbs). Leroy means King in French and he believes he is King of this property. He will want to come down and visit as he has run of the outside area. Leroy is in the doorway of one of the photos I have attached.

I have a guide for my Home and my neighborhood that I will send to you once we agree on your rental.

Please call me if you would like more details.

This vacation was a great and lasting experience due to the host as well as the beautiful place. We enjoyed the location with a nice neighbourhood close to hip Abbot Kinney and the beach very much - the house shows great taste, a wonderful atmosphere and offers many neat places inside and outside to meet, sit and relax. Beds are comfortable and you will find everything here that you need for a short or longer stay. Emmett is a very lovely, reliable and communicative host who is there to help and answer your questions whenever needed. Everything was perfectly prepared and organized for our arrival. Especially the neighbour Tammy and her dog Leroy made our time extraordinary and valuable. The best place in Venice - it was definitely not easy to part! A+ recommendation from Germany!

I'm happy to be able to say that I now how friends in Dusseldorf, Germany. I will let you know as soon as possible if my home will be available for your return visit next year. It would be my pleasure to be your host and to see you again. XO, Emmett

Emmett's house was exactly as described and we enjoyed our stay there greatly. His place is tasteful, trendy and superbly located next to Abbott Kinney with the beach accessible in 15min on foot. The quality of the housing itself is neat with everything you need to spend your day working or relaxing, whether it's inside or out side. We stayed for 6 whole weeks and found it very convenient. Emmett himself was a discreet, caring and helpful host whenever needed.

we had a lovely stay in Emmett's house. everything was exactly as described. we have been visiting Venice for years, and his neighborhood, on the other side of Venice Blvd is quieter than where we used to stay so we loved that. Emmett has been a wonderful host.

Emmett was an awesome host during our family vacation in Venice. He gave us a tour of his home upon our arrival. Everything was exactly as his listing stated. Enjoyed riding his bikes through the quiet neighborhood and seeing the beautiful homes along the "Venice Canal."

We went to Venice for a wedding. During our downtime we did a bit of exploring in the area. We found Emmett’s place to be very convenient. We were only a couple of blocks from the Abbott Kinney shopping area which offers a very unique and fun shopping experience. Bikes were provided by Emmett so we took advantage of that and rode to the Venice Beach boardwalk and the canal area. It was a short ride and a great way to see the area. We also found some local restaurants nearby by which were very good. We walked to a couple of local bars at night. Felt very safe and had fun. The accommodations were as described and perfect for us. Three of us stayed there and had plenty of room. It was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We thought it was a very cool place and loved the neighborhood. We took advantage of the porches outside and enjoyed relaxing out there. Leroy, the neighbor’s dog, hung out with us quite a bit. Parking behind the house worked our very well. Emmett’s place is a perfect example of how an Airbnb trip should work. He responded quickly with my questions and provided detailed information for our stay at his house. He also provide a great list of local attractions as well as where to go to get the basics – grocery store, drug store, etc… I did not get to meet Emmett, however he called me when we arrived to check in and make sure we were all set. He said he would be available if we needed anything. Overall, Emmett’s place was perfect for us and we had great time. I highly recommend this place.

The house was exactly how it was described! We had a wonderful stay at Emmett's. It's so close to the best part of LA. The house is so well stocked with extra amenities and I can't imagine it being any cozier. The neighbors are all very tight knit and friendly. Emmett called to make sure we were comfortable and I appreciated that! Thank you so much!

Very happy with Emmett's Comfortable Venice Home. We were 1 of 2 couples travelling together and we were all very comfortable in the space. Comfy beds, full bathroom for each couple, great lounge,kitchen and dining area. The kitchen had everything we required for cooking and eating in. There was an extra TV room or third bedroom if needed. We were driving so the parking space at rear was handy.Outside area was neat and well furnished, perfect for eating or just for drinks in the lovely weather that we had. We appreciated that there was a bbq and used it for dinner one night. Great amenities and great communication with Emmett even though he was out of the country. All the little touches that made us feel welcome and comfortable. A home away from home. Leroy, the resident dog was perfectly behaved, very friendly and an added bonus for us to have him around.
