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. Use coasters under drinks to prevent damage to furniture. Please don't go on the roof -- it's not designed to support full body weight! Please observe the checkout time so I can prep the place for the next guest.
The checkin/checkout process is a breeze. We enjoyed the few nights we spend in this unique property and the view of the fireworks courteous of the Kardashians from the 360 degree windows in the bedroom. It is very convenience and close to the beach and restaurants. Highly recommended!!!
Overall great experience! This was my first airbnb so I'm happy my first was this easy and convenient. From Johns place I was able to walk to Abbot Kinney, the beach and more. I didn't use my car once, once I got there. I liked the check in and out process as well. I was a little confused on parking my car initially and entering the building but that was partly my bad for not understanding the instructions. He answered my questions promptly when I first got there. It was nice to not have to be let in by someone and just go inside. This may be typical for airbnb but since this was my first time Im not sure.
I would definitely stay here again. Thanks John for a great weekend.
Beautifully decorated space, with private parking. Check in was easy. Located within a short walk of Abbot Kinney. Recommended!
We had a great stay at John's place in Venice. It's a brilliant space in an unbeatable location and as described in the listing very clean. Check in was automated which makes life easy. We'd definitely stay again.
Thanks you John. It was so nice to stay few days in this paradise. I felt like home
We had an enjoyable stay. The location is very convenient and accommodations were comfortable. The place was clean, well kept and cozy. It functioned perfectly for the time we were in Venice Beach.
We had a lovely stay - apartment is cozy - beach house like with all amenities. We had a blast in venice beach and we also felt when coming back to our apartment it was a haven of peace and rest. Loved the moroccan lamp. It gave that extra atmosphere .... Definitely worth a recommendation!
