The apartment is exactly as it's described in the listing and the photos -- very very clean! We met George as we were coming in and he was very friendly, provided some suggestions on where to take everyone. The neighborhood is quiet, with a little bit of noise through open windows in the morning, mostly of kids walking to school.
The set up is ideal if you are traveling with other people. Some people can be in the living room chatting or watching TV, while you can sit in the kitchen and work or have another conversation. There's also a charming front yard and side yard for al fresco dining/wining.
Bonus: There's an entire wall available for guests to leave pictures, words, thoughts. And a bucket of colorful Sharpie markers to get the job done. A wonderful, personal touch and nice way to close out our stay.
Parking was super easy, usually parked right in front of the house. Super convenient location to Venice, Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey. Highly recommended!
George and Thea were wonderful to communicate with from the very start. Upon booking my reservation, they reached out to let me know that they'd touch base shortly before my arrival with important information and they did just that. Throughout my stay, Thea was available via messaging on the app which was very helpful.
The apartment is lovely. Clean and spacious and sunny. I loved that bathroom toiletries were provided. This was a kind touch and saved me space in my luggage! The home is located very close to the beach and main Venice thoroughfares, so there is plenty to do and easy to get to most desinations on foot.
I would highly recommend staying at this location. It is prime and the hosts are wonderful!
The neighborhood was great and their home had everything I needed.
They were very welcoming and responsive to emails. I can tell they enjoy offering their home to others.
I had such a great time in this beautiful apartment! It was in prime location near the beach and restaurants and bars. It was so cool to see all the different people from around the world tag their name and place of origin on their wall.
Wir haben uns wahnsinnig wohlgefühlt in diesem Traumhaus in Vernice. Das Haus ist liebevoll ausgestattet und man merkt sofort, dass sich George und Thea viele Gedanken gemacht haben, um es den Gästen so gemütlich wie möglich zu machen. Parkplätze sind in dieser sehr ruhigen Seitenstrasse überhaupt kein Problem und wir würden sofort wieder hinfahren. Vielen Dank für diese tolle Zeit
I had a lovely one night stay at this charming cottage. This was my last night in LA after staying in the city of angels for 6 years and I couldn't have asked for more perfect place to spend my last night. The incredible location only adds to the place. The apartment captures the warmth and quirkiness of Venice in the most delightful way and you can tell that the owners have been very thoughtful about every little detail in the place. It quiet and relaxing, exactly what I needed after an entire day of packing my stuff. To add to all this, George and Thea were so amazing and kind in shipping over an item I left at the place. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting from out of town and to also a local who wants a mini getaway.
Clear communication and wash access to the property on the day. Looks exactly like it does on the photos and provides everything you need for q vacation rental. Prefect location for shops, bars and restaurants with Venice Brach being only a short walk away.
