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!
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 4 nights.
The house is very much as described in the profile, but the interior is a bit worn. The kitchen could be a little more equipped, but the house in all is practical and charming. Lovely location!

Der Aufenthalt im Ella House war eine super Sache! Wir haben in diesem kleinen aber herzlich eingerichteten Haus alles vorgefunden was man für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt braucht. Die Organisation und der Kontakt mit Karen von The Common House war ausgezeichnet und sehr effizient, was wir sehr geschätzt haben. Die Lage des Ella House ist ohne Verkehr in einer Seitenstrasse des Venice Blvds, optimal für Ausflüge in ganz Los Angeles und Umgebung, und nur wenige Fahrminuten vom belebten Venice Beach entfernt. Wir können das Ella House bestens Weiterempfehlen!
Thank you so much for being a wonderful guest. Please come back to visit us soon.
Here is the translated version of Franziska's review:
Staying at Ella House was a great thing! We have found what you need in this small but warmly decorated house everything needed for a pleasant stay. The organization and the contact with Karen of The Common House was excellent and very efficient, which we greatly appreciated. The location of Ella House is the lively Venice Beach with no traffic in a side street of Venice Blvds, ideal for excursions throughout the Los Angeles area, and just a few minutes. We can Ella House Tell best!
Very accurate description of house. Enjoyed our stay at the Common House and will definitely consider it again.
The Ella House is a charming, cozy and fully furnished little home in a quiet neighborhood with convenient access to restaurants, etc. It has an open and welcoming patio for outdoor seating and locked gate entrance for added sense of security. We had to stay there for a few nights because of termite tenting, and it was like having a vacation in town.
In addition, the hosts offer thoughtful conveniences for guests such as filtered water, washer/dryer, television with access to all kinds of movies and channels, bathrooms with plenty of towels and toilet paper, and garage for one car. The place was clean, nicely decorated but not cluttered, and the beds were comfortable. The low bed and couch made it easy for my elderly mother to get in and out of it.
I would stay there again in a minute.
You're a lovely guest. I hope that you will come back to visit us again soon. The Ella House is one of our guests' favorite vacation homes. We will continue to maintain and improve our excellent rating and make sure that our guests will have a wonderful experience during their stay. Thank you so much for your positive feedbacks. We look forward to hosting you again.
House was perfect for our visit. We were here for our daughter's graduation from LMU (just 10 minutes away) and found the house to be a great place to congregate over the long weekend. We were two adult couples staying here and the house was plenty roomy for the four of us as well as for later when we had more family coming over to celebrate the graduation. Big kitchen, nice open floor plan, comfy beds and very attractive decor made this a house we would love to stay at again. Neighborhood was quite peaceful, too.
Great placebo stay with all the essentials provided for. The location was perfect. Just as advertised.
plusses: Location, configuration, peace and quiet.
negatives: arrival procedure was not as described in the instructions so we spent a long time late at night trying to gain access. There is no key box and no key, simply a keypad. In the dark and without a courtesy light this is difficult to action. There was no plug for the bath and we could not buy one locally so the bath was not useable. Very limited local instructions. It would be helpful to list a nearby bakery, food store, hardware store etc. Very limited crockery and cutlery, six of anything meant that our party of 4 had to use the dishwasher for every meal.
Thank you so much for your comments. The Ella House is located in an ideal location of Venice. Quiet but yet very close to the trendy areas. We strive to give our guests the best vacation home experience possible. Therefore, we welcome any suggestions our guest can give us. We will add a porch light in the front of the house for easier entry during late check-ins. Also, we will provide additional information on our guest manual to include more local stores that are convenient and near the house. Regarding the quantity of dishware, we plan to provide 2 additional sets of everything for a total of 8. We believe that the above changes will help our guests to better enjoy their stay. It is our goal to maintain our already high-rating from our past guests and hope to make each guest's experience as special as possible.
