I'm happy to say that everyone really enjoys my home. I must start by saying this is not the place to come and party. My neighbors are very close and enjoy our quiet neighborhood. Please read the reviews. =)
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, 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, outdoor shower, 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 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 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!!!
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.
Quiet neighborhood just minutes away from all that Venice has to offer. Walk, bike, drive, taxi, Uber.
Metro buses are a short walk and they can take you to the LA Metro rail system. I love using the very accessible Uber 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.
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.
Emmet er veldig hyggelig og hjelpsom. Stedet stemmer godt med beskrivelsen, fint hus og mange praktiske løsninger, Emmet har tenkt på alt. Beliggenheten er flott, med gåavstand til kafeer, shopping, Venice beach og Venice canals. Veldig søt hund som ofte var på besøk. Vi fikk også låne sykler og surfboards. Vi hadde det supert her, kommer gjerne tilbake.
I am not sure what this says since I do not understand your language but I am happy to know first hand that you were pleased with your stay and looking forward to visiting again. Leroy was searching the house for the children the day after you left. He misses them. Thanks for being such wonderful guests. I enjoyed our conversations. All the best, Emmett
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.
We (4 adults and two small kids) stayed at Emmets place for 10days and absolutely loved it! We had everything we needed, the backyard was perfect for our kids to run around and play in and the jacuzzi gave that little extra! The neighborhood was quiet, or as quiet as it gets in LA..
The whole house was well equipped and the location is spot on! Walking distance to the lively Venice beach and to trendy Abbot Kinney Rd and a short car ride to Santa Monica with its shops and the pier.
The house lacks ac, but we didn't feel the need for it either despite being there in July.
All in all, a perfect stay in Venice!
We had a wonderful time staying in Emmett's home. It was so comfortable and it had everything we needed. Emmett was so easy to deal with...he was readily available, flexible, easy to talk to, and concerned that we had everything we needed. The house is very conveniently located; it was easy to get to all the places we were going (mostly UCLA & the airport) and we rarely used the freeway (we loved that!) We would definitely, without hesitation, stay at Emmett's again! Thank you Emmett, for everything!
Emmett was a great host. The house is fantastic- one of the best places to stay in Venice/Santa Monica. The house guide was professional and all inclusive to help us use all of the great amenities this house has to offer. The value you get from this home is far greater than the cost. Plenty of space; amazing Piano; a really great place to stay.
Thanks of the kind words Ryan. It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope you visit again soon, My neighbor, Mark, commented on the fact that you were considerate when playing the piano and closed the doors on that side of the house. He is right, you are a considerate young man. All the best and I hope you visit again soon.
We stayed at Emmett's house at April 2014. The house has good location, close to all main activities at Venice, equipped with all necessary staff including bikes. Emmett shown an outstanding hospitality to us. I can recommend everyone to stay at this house without any doubts.
Energetic, respectful, creatice, physically active, single man who enjoys running, biking, swimming, sailiing, hiking, camping, theater, dogs, good food, travel, good wine, costume parties, and my many wonderful friends all over the world.
Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I've got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible . . . G. B. Shaw
