The Ella House in Venice - Easy Beach Living & Sophisticated Life Style

Spend your next L.A. retreat at the charming Ella house!

Fully-remodeled in June of 2012, the 2-Bedroom / 2-Bath Ella House is beautifully designed to celebrate Southern California's indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Big windows bring in plenty of natural light to the spacious living room and dining room areas. Functional kitchen is equipped with retro countertop and cabinets as well as brand new appliances. Clean and classic California style front yard is equally welcoming as the indoor space. Feel the air and breeze when you chill outdoors, and indulge in comfort and peace when you stay in.

Ideally located on a quiet upscale street in the center of Venice Beach community, the Ella House is just a short walk to retails and cafes, and a 5 minutes bicycle ride to the "it" hubs of Abbot Kinney and Santa Monica Main Street. Sand and waves are only 2 miles down.

When you arrive, enjoy the reclaimed hardwood floor, open kitchen, mini bar, fireplace, outdoor grill, drought-tolerant garden, and modern amenities including Tempurpedic Cal King beds, solar tube lights, occupancy sensor dimming lights, big flat-screen TV, Bose sound system, and Fios high-speed wireless Internet. An on-site detached garage (one car) plus street parking. Well-behaved pets welcome upon approval.

Come and explore the diverse and vibrant mix of So Cal cultures. Stay at the Ella House and enjoy easy breezy California beach life to the fullest!

The location was great, beds were comfortable and it was clean. There was a slight smoke odor.

Great house in a really good location out in Venice. Very private, clean and close to shops and Venice Beach. Flexible checkout was very convenient. I would recommend it for a cosy stay in Venice / Santa Monica area. 5-Star.

The house is spacious and very cute. Overall, we loved our stay and for the price it was a great value. I do agree with some other reviews about it lacking in coziness. The couch cushions falling off made it difficult to relax. Our rooms were very dark, which was great in the morning. The manager accommodated an early check in, which was so helpful.

We enjoyed our stay in Ella House. We had a rainy few days so we didn't get to take advantage of the yard and firepit. The host was very quick to respond and was very flexible with a late check out.

The house has a key pad and we were sent the combination before we arrived. Once in, we found a notebook with all the information that we needed for our stay. While we had no human contact at that point, it really was not necessary. The house was pretty much as we expected it and we had a wonderful stay in Venice. Visiting family nearby made the location quite convenient for us. But folks just interested in a good Venice location would be pleased as well. Close to Venice Blvd. and Lincoln Ave. made it easy to access nearby attractions. The house was within a short walk of shops and restaurants, including a Costco.

The reservations went fine. I had actually been in this house a previous time, so knew the area was good and the house had a good layout. It's nice it has a garage to park in. However, staying there as a guest made me see how bare-boned the place is. The kitchen is very large and very under equipped. My two year grandson would open and close all the cabinets saying, "nothing there!" over and over. There is a great stove/oven, but not one baking sheet to use in the oven - Only pots and pans for the stove top. The house needs to be freshened up with a new coat of paint - the closets are grimy and marred up with scratches and chipped paint. More mirrors would be nice - a full length in the larger bathroom. Although the house has updated features in the bathrooms and kitchen, I did not feel "at home" there as I have in other airbnb rentals. It was stark and grimy. We made the most of it, but was somewhat disappointed and frustrated. I think this house is run by a management company rather than the owners, therefore lacking that personal touch I have experienced in other rentals.
