About this listing
This is a second story apt that is in a part of Venice that has restaurants, shopping & Whole Foods. It is 6 blocks to the beach and three blocks to Main street. I have bikes to lend but they are shared with two other apartments. There is free street parking but be sure to face in the same direction as everyone else. It comfortably fits three adults & 1 child.
We are 3 blocks west of Lincoln and just one half block south of Rose. Its 6 blocks to the beach. Whole Foods is just around the corner.
Rose Avenue is the newest hotspot in the area so there are restaurants, yoga, shopping and a wine bar at the end of my block.
If you are a family of two adults and two children, four people fit fine but when four adults stay, they sometimes complain.
Abbot Kinney is quite near, as is Santa Monica and Marina del Rey. Its a short cab ride from LAX.
The apt has skylights, wood and tile floors and a wonderful shower. The kitchen is well equipped.
The garden area is lovely and the beach is just great! The space is interesting with a covered deck that works as extra room since at the beach we spend most of our time outside.
There is public transportation on Lincoln Blvd and Main St. both just a four minute walk from here.
There is plenty of street parking but please be careful on Mondays and Tuesdays and read the signs for street cleaning or you will be ticketed.
There is pay laundry on the property that take 8 quarters to wash and 6 quarters to dry.I have bicycles to lend that everyone loves.
It is possible to have four people here but it is not a lot of square footage!
The apartment is private. There is a laundry room next to the yellow house that takes quarters. The bikes are locked up next to the laundry room.Please relock them when you put them back.
Interaction with Guests
I usually try to meet everyone the first day or two so they know where I am.
There is lots to do and see around here. The biggest attraction is the beach just a short distance to the west. The restaurants are plentiful and delicious and there is lots of shopping nearby also.It is convenient to get around the rest of LA as well.
There are busses on Lincoln or Main street that will take you anywhere. I have several bikes and they also are a great way to get around.
Other Things to Note
If you have a car don't park on the wrong side of the street from 8 to 10 am on either Monday or Tuesday. And if you are from Europe where it is ok to park heading the wrong direction, you will be ticketed here.
Please lock the bikes at all times when you are not on them! Please no smoking in the apt. There is plenty of outdoor space where you can smoke. No tampons in the plumbing and no parties.
Please enter and exit the property at the front gate quietly especially if you have a late or early flight or arrival.
About the Host, Alice
I also love ballroom dancing and in the summer, here in Venice, I like to bodysurf. I have extra wetsuits and flippers if you want to go along.
If I can help make your stay more fun-just let me know and I will try my best.
So far everyone has loved the property and its location is excellent.
