We enjoyed our stay at Yvonne's home and highly recommend it! The neighborhood felt safe and beautiful. The house is close to the beach, Venice canals, Abbot Kinney, and is a few blocks from Whole Foods. We had a private entrance and living space. She has the details down! We loved the leather chairs in the living room, the gorgeous bathroom, and the comfortable bed. She set up a new fan to help us stay cool (it was in the 90's but never felt hot inside the house) and her sweet son helped us get the DVD player going. If this place is available go for it!!
I had a wonderful stay at Yvonne's Venice Beach home. The space was just as described and was clean, neat and very nicely furnished. Her attention to many details also made the stay very pleasant. And the location was fantastic with stores and restaurants conveniently nearby; Venice Beach and Santa Monica are very close; and the rest of Los Angeles and Hollywood are just a short drive away. A great place to stay!
We stayed here for three nights while in LA to visit our son. This apartment was delightful. Yvonne even left breakfast foods and coffee for us to enjoy. The yard with nice table and chairs was a great place to eat, and the Whole Foods is just a few blocks away. This was our best experience with airbnb, and we hope to be able to stay here in the future. We will definitely recommend it to others. Venice is an interesting area, and this place is a short drive to the beach.
Great location if you want to be near Venice/Santa Monica. Very comfortable bed. Cozy surroundings..
This was a great location, totally wonderful owner, et al. We just really needed air conditioning!!! Kinda sorry we weren't told
ahead of time but oh well, we enjoyed ourselves tremendously! Thanks, Yvonne!
Yvonne was great with communication and accommodating to my flexible schedule
Great place, great location, great value. if in the area, I recommend this place as it has the home away from home feel. will definitely stay here again when in the area!
thanks again, Yvonne!
About the Host, Yvonne
We are a traveling family, we love to explore new places and meet new people. Originally from England Steve (my husband) and I traveled extensively before settling down in LA 25+ years ago. Our 11 year old twin sons also have the travel bug, although because of school and time most of our traveling is in the US and we mainly go camping.
We love having friends over for dinner (I love to cook) or just to hang out with us.
