The best of this apartment is its location, the street is beautiful and very close to shops and amazing restaurants. It has all the amenities, we had good breakfasts in the terrace! If you are four people, two of them will sleep on the couch which is not super confy, ok for 2 nights. Thea was great with communications, we had two friends visiting as a surprise and she was good in allow them to stay with us for extra $10 a night. We had a good stay, I believe it could be a bit cleanner but is also because the house is old, you can tell noone lives there right one its maybe one thing I have missed compare to other Airbnb experiences where you can feel very cozy and at home.
Great apartment at a great location!
It has everything you need including an equipped kitchen and toys for the kids.
Very nice neighborhood where you have free street parking, you can easily jog to the beach or use the bikes to get there.
Would definitely come back for more.
We had a lovely stay at the Big Blue House. Thea was a very helpful and responsive. The place is exactly as it appears and was a wonderful home base while we were visiting the city. It is a very peaceful neighborhood, close to the action on Abbot Kinney but quiet itself. Parking is very easy and the apartment had all the amenities we needed.
The Big Blue House was very clean, very near the beach, surprisingly easy to park nearby and comfortable in July without AC,
Thea is a gracious hostess, and took care to see that I got in OK.
Kind of A funky Euro vibe to the place (this from a crass American from NY and FL).
The bed was comfortable for those who like it on the soft side like me.
Well worth the price.
Very nice house , walking distance from the beach, several restaurants and shops nearby.
The Host made us feel very welcome. This is the perfect place to stay while visiting Venice Beach CA. Cute area, and cute warm place. We would definitely come back again.
