- 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.
Myself and 3 friends stayed at George and Thea's big blue house and it was amazing! It was our first time in LA and the west coast in general and we had a blast. The location was great, parking was easy and the house was artsy, unique and cozy. George and Thea provided everything we needed (even things we thought we didn't need like games, beach towels, bikes and heaters) The home was well kept and large enough to sleep 4 people and have the feeling that I was hangout at a friends beach house. I will be definitely coming back!
Thanks for hosting us!
The big blue house is a very nice place. The location is just perfect, quiet neighborhood and not far from Abbott Kinney. Everything is very clean. There is a wall on which the guests can draw and write messages. It's an excellent idea to make the place even more welcoming. George was very reactive when we needed him. The owners' dog is lovely. Highly recommended.
We thoroughly enjoyed the stay in the "Big Blue Vacation House". Great location and fantastic communication! Couldn't have gone better
The Big Blue house was a great stay for us. The location was quiet and close enough to Venice Beach to make frequent visits really easy. A lovely little Mexican restaurant very close by highly recommended.
George and Thea Wolfe have a lovely house in awesome Venice.
The small apartment was perfect for my husband and I , and the bed was extremely comfortable. We loved the location and had such a wonderful time.
I would highly recommend staying at the "Big Blue House" :)
Place is very clean and cozy ... the neighborhood is very quaint & quiet... check-in/ check-out process was a breeze! Thanks George & Thea!
