There’s so much to do within walking distance! Abbot Kinney shops/restaurants (some of the best in the city!), the beach, bike path, famous Venice Beach boardwalk and Venice Canals. Main Street Santa Monica shops, the Santa Monica Pier and 3rd Street Promenade are all close by.
Malibu, Westwood, Century City, Beverly Hills and Hollywood are just 20-35 minutes away. The studio is within a 15-20 minute drive from LAX and can also be reached by public transportation from the airport.

You can reach many local attractions by walking or on bike. If you wish to explore other parts of the city, I highly recommend the iPhone app Uber. It provides convenient transportation cheaper than a regular taxi.
Other Things to Note
Pet-free, feather-free, non-smoking, very clean.
Keep gate shut at all times and door closed when you are out. No smoking and no additional visitors without prior permission. Please do not wear shoes inside.

We really enjoyed our stay in Venice! The apartment is charming, quirky, and gorgeous. We loved the turret style bedroom and overall the space had great windows and lighting. Parking was great. A quick walk from the beach, Abbott Kinney, and plenty of great restaurants. The area is a little grungy and home to an interesting mix of hipsters, hippies, tourists, locals. John gave us plenty of space but was also accessible and responsive when we needed him. A definite pleasure, we would love to stay again.
Johns place was very cool and had a great Venice Cali vibe. It was very close to everything and it was great that he also had bikes to rent as well as parking.
The place does not have ac but bedroom was well ventilated but if it is hot the main level can be warm.
We had a great stay and would recommend.
We enjoyed our stay at John's place in Venice. The apartment was clean and well maintained, and I think it shows better in real life than in the pictures (and the pictures are good). What we appreciated most was John's attention to detail in how the apartment is outfitted. Nice cook and glassware, Apple tv, great sound system. Lots of comforts of home.
All directions were clear and communications with John were prompt and helpful. Overall it was a great Airbnb experience.
John was extremely helpful from the moment that we booked the apartment. The fact that the unit was code protected rather than keyed, meant that we didnt have to meet him to get in, and that we did not have to carry a key with us during our beach adventures! The apartment was perfect for my wife and I - we were attending a wedding in Topanga Canyon, and having two bathrooms was a huge help. The place was quiet, perfectly located and was a great space for cooking, relaxing and feeling like locals. Really fun spot - we would love to buy it!
This was a fun little place to stay. It was perfect for my husband and I and the location is excellent! The place was very clean and well stocked. The bed was comfortable and we felt right at home. John was a great host.
Really nice apartment just a couple blocks from the beach - Awesome location between the ocean and all the hip shops and cafes on Abbot Kinney..with a secure parking spot! The bedroom loft upstairs sounds funky - but it's really great and spacious upstairs. Also - big points for awesome knives and cooking equipment, utensils so you can actually cook and eat at the place. John gave easy instructions on how to get in and out - we didn't meet but he was accommodating on a request. Would definitely stay there again!
This was far and away the most hassle-free check in of any airbnb rental I have tried. There was a keypad both for the front gate and the unit itself, so there was no need for a key exchange, and John left detailed instructions for us. As for the unit itself, I cannot recommend it highly enough! My gf and I were in love with the place. It looks exactly as pictured and even has an adorable meditation nook in the loft space with a skylight. The apartment was gated with parking, only a couple blocks from the beach and a short walk to Abbot Kinney. Would definitely, definitely stay here again.

I'm extremely organized, dependable and detail-oriented so rest assured I'll make sure you stay goes well. I love managing my vacation rentals in Venice and love sharing the unique, beachy vibe I create in each place. I'll be easily reachable throughout your stay should something arise.
I love being active...yoga, pilates, or hiking daily is a must! I have traveled to over forty countries, and can't wait for my next adventure. My favorites are India, Syria and Thailand.
