The Abbot Kinney strip is getting to be the most popular boutique and restaurant strip on the West Side. Lots to choose from and easy to walk to.
We are three blocks from main bus lines going into Santa Monica, the airport and downtown LA.

- you leave dirty dishes in the sink
- you leave bikes in worse condition than you found them
- brake boogie boards and don't replace them
- you leave sand on furniture or floors
- brake dishes or glasses and don't notify us to find out what their value is

There are two adult and two kids' bicycles that you may use. But you are responsible for repairing damage that occurs from careless or inappropriate handling and use.
We had such an amazing time staying here. The hosts are super friendly and accommodating. I don't have a single bad thing to say and the good things could just keep on coming!
The location of the blue house was wonderful! Close to lots of lovely restaurants and shops and a quick bike ride to Venice canals and the beach! The spot was quaint and the pictures are very accurate. It was a tad small for three people as there isn't much counter space in the bathrooms or in the bedroom so all of our stuff was sprawled all over the floor making it a bit cluttered. In hind sight we should have booked the larger suite located in the back yard way more in advance.
The host met us at the house briefly and showed us around. The neighborhood was great, a family atmosphere. Walking distance to Abbott Kinney St. and a good restaurants etc.
We had a great time at the house which was also a short bike/drive away from the beach and main Venice haunts. Loved the art on the walls and the coziness of the place!
This appartment is very cosy and cute. The neighborhood couldn't be better!
We loved the artsy vibe and the graffity wall!
I would recommend this place for a couple or a family with small children.
We stayed at the Big Blue House twice in one week! George was a great host and made the whole process very easy.
Le logement était conforme par contre dommage de n'avoir vu personne,en effet les propriétaires n’étaient pas là,mais on aurait bien souhaité un contact car impossible d'ouvrir cadenas pour les vélos(clef de travers)et les vélos n’étaient pas en bon état,de plus il était prévue de laisser nos valises dans un coin dans la maison,or personnes donc laissé dans le jardin sans surveillance!!!!
