Interaction with Guests

I live very close so I'm around to answer any questions you might have during your stay.
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 and easily accessible by car, bus, or bicycle.
Malibu, Westwood, Century City, Beverly Hills and Hollywood are just 20-35 minutes away. The location 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

Please don't go on the roof! It's not designed to support full body weight. Keep front door locked at all times and do not smoke. Parties are not allowed. No more than one additional guest is allowed for a short visit. Please observe the checkout time so I can prep for the next guest :)
The place was easy to get to. Street parking is busy but with a little searching you can find one. The place is small but has basic essentials. There's no AC so the room gets hot! That would be the biggest down fall.
Super easy stay, comfortable apartment, easy to communicate with host. A bit warm on super hot days without AC, otherwise perfect.
Location, location, location! The loft is very small, but reasonably priced considering the amazing location. He has really made great use of the space too, so you never feel cramped. John was easy to work with and we had no problems during our stay. I would make a note that if you are a person who needs a closet or a lot of bathroom space to get ready, this may not be the place for you. However, if you need a clean and safe place to lay your head at night, close to everything in Venice, this is a great low cost option.
Quartier le plus sympa de Los Angeles à notre gout.
Appartement situé à 2min de la plage de Venice à pied.
Le logement avec lit en mezzanine est très sympa.
Notre hote a toujours été très disponible par messages.
This space was exactly as advertised. It's small, but very colorful and bright and it's in a fun, walkable location. Thanks for your hospitality!
Excellent loft experience! Clean and sunny. Exactly as described. Walking distance to the beach. A lovely night!
John's place was great. Walking distance to the beach and Abbot Kinney. He always responded quickly to questions. Bonus was the bike rentals!

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.
