Let me 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.
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, newer stainless steel appliances, pots, pans, dinner ware, glasses, new Weber Grill, nice front load washer and dryer, 2 bicycles, boggie board, beach chairs, 2 tennis rackets, beach towels.luggage scale, etc.
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 sofa convertable 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 some 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. One recent renter was a painter and she used it as her work studio. 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 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 (website hidden) for quite a while now and people love it. Please check out the reviews. Hope to hear from you soon. Good day!!!

Emmett is super nice and does care about his guests and the house is perfectly organized and well thought. Emmett explained all the things of the house during check-in so we could fully enjoy it for the month. There is a parking spot, washing machine+dryer, a garage with tools we can use, two bicycles... There was also a piano which was cool especially for someone who plays the piano like me :-)
The decoration is very nice too, Emmett has good taste and cares about small nice details. The living room is very bright which makes it a nice place to stay in.
I’m not particularly a pet person but the neighbor’s dog (Leroy) is nice and calm and my son was happy to play with him.
The area is quiet (residential area), close to Abbot Kinney (5mn by foot), the beach (20 mn by foot/5mn by car); the famous canals (10 mn by foot).
The only minus was the internet connection that appears to have ups and downs, but I know Emmett plans to change the subscription.
100% recommended and I’ll definitely go there again! Thanks again Emmett for being such a great host!
Emmett was an amazing host! We loved his place so much and will be coming back to stay again as soon as he has an opening! He was easy to reach, and very knowledgeable! Thank you Emmett for your hospitality and a great stay!
Excellent Location, great amenities. Everything was as promised and Emmett was very helpful. The entire place has great attention to detail for quality and nothing was left to be desired the entire stay.
We really enjoyed our stay at Emmett's home. Everything worked out well. Emmett was very helpful: he showed us around the house, gave us suggestions of places to go, got out the bikes and helmets so we could ride by the beach - great fun. There were 17 people there for Thanksgiving dinner and we loved using the outside area. It felt like home, especially with Leroy, his neighbor's dog. Lovely house.
Our stay to Emmett's home was wonderful. The house is very clean et really spacious for a family. The neighborhood is so quiet but very close to the great Abbot Kinney street. We had a chance to meet Emmett and he is really nice person. The house is fully equiped and nothing missing in the kitchen. We can recommend this house. And thanks again Emmett for your kindness. Carole and family
Carole, It was my pleasure to be able to meet you and your family. You are all very sweet. I feel like we would become close friends if you lived in the neighborhood. Thanks for taking such good care of my home and going above and beyond by cleaning and stripping the beds before you left. You made the transition to the next guests very easy. I hope you come back for another visit. I'm sure that Leroy is missing Mary Lu.
My husband and I took our sister inlaws to LA for the weekend. Emmett's home was a perfect getaway- clean, organized and all the basic necessities were provided. We loved listening to his cd collection while playing a game of scrabble and we enjoyed the many outdoor spaces. We felt comfortable and at home plus centrally located to many fantastic LA attractions. We hope to come back again!!
Emmett's house was exactly as represented in the photos and description, and was a perfect fit for us (four women and a one-and-a-half-year-old). We enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor spaces, and my son (the toddler) had enough room to run around and play and really loved little Leroy (the dog) who was so patient with him! It is a quick walk to the canals and Abbott Kinney, and a nice run to and along the beach, which I enjoyed a couple of mornings. We went bike riding on the beach, walked the canals, grabbed tasty salads at Lemonade on Abbot Kinney and ate on Emmet's patio, enjoyed a few evening hot-tubs, and even did a little boogie-boarding, so we were thoroughly entertained both at Emmet's house and by the surrounding area. I would definitely want to return.
Great location, within walking distance to some wonderful restaurants, tea rooms, boutiques and the beach. The house is perfect for family visiting LA and surrouds, Emmett great host, always there to answer questions and give some wonderful tips on what to visit in LA. His house is comfortable, spacious with all modern amenities and parking. Leroy a definite plus, made our stay so much more enjoyable, our daughter was tempted to take him home with us. Would definitely recommend and if ever in LA, would stay there again.
Wonderful get-a-way in Venice! Easy walk to the beach and shopping. The pictures do not do this home justice. It is clean, beautifully decorated, cozy, with great outdoor space. Emmett was so accomodating. He left a comprehensive guide about the home and local entertainment. Communication with him was easy and quick. Our family had a fabulous time and will recommend anyone we know heading to the LA area to stay here.
Emmett, thanks for hosting us for 6 nights! We were a party of 6 persons and Emmetts home worked great for us. Spacious and well equiped and just 10-15 min walk down to lovely Venice beach. We really had a good time in the LA area and Emmetts house was a great "base camp" for us to rest between our tourist activities!
Thanks again, Emmett!
